In the event that you're like me and have a need to watch a game, even if it is in the MAC...
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
He was MAC player of the year when he was at CMU, if I am not mistaken....
Girlfriend's roommate has the new Tim Allen show on instead...
I do kinda miss Home Improvement though.
Is the show any good? Loved Tim in HI, but he hasn't done much other than the Santa Claus movies and Toy Story since.
Seems like a typical sitcom, this one is about his daughter trying out for some America's Next Top Model deal. Some funny one-liners and a big time laugh track. Seems to be concentrating on the kids more than the parents, but that could just be the episode, I don't know.
Can GERG coach two defenses at the same time? Stay tuned, folks.
I think I saw this MAC game already...
I was trying to provide a little distraction / light discussion here...
Last week NIU beat UT 63 - 60. One minute in and its 7 all. Should be a good one!
this may be the best glee ever
they got osu on their tonight, and they got a scout interested in their ugly coach,,,LMAO
i dont normally watch this crap but this is too funny to pass up
Hey Lorne, while you're here...
What's up with the power outage last week? It was pretty awesome for your guys to force a building evacuation and let me have a 90 minute lunch. Any chance you can fry the grid this Friday at about 11:30?
You mean what happened on Central Campus? Oddly enough, the power plant over on Huron actually powers most of the buildings affected. We have interconnections with the University's system, however, and I think we lost a switch cabinet or two. You give me an address and I'll see if I can't get a crew to flip the fuses for a supposed "emergency". LOL
Hatcher Library. I'm the only guy in my office with a laptop so my computer stayed on. I got a long lunch and to watch my coworkers rip their hair out over the lost work. So feel free to crash the library whenever you want. No skin off my nose.
Hatcher is actually powered by the power plant. We're the backup feed (truth be told, you wouldn't want to be on the nearest Edison circuit very long), but apparently nobody told us to turn on the juice in lieu of repairs, or the automatic switch failed. I've been in the basement. I bet it's the latter.
Consdering the main data center for the Library is in the Hatcher basement it's not like we need a backup power solution or anything like that...argh!
....The University and Detroit Edison is...interesting. Lest I name names, I shouldn't say much else. I dare say that if there is anyone on the boards that works for facilities, you might very well have met me at some point or another if the University was dealing with Edison on some issue.
I remember the logo they put on Maintenance vans..."We make BLUE GO". We also make BLUE STOP, as it were. :-)
Why is this game the one that gets a topic? Western-Toledo is on too, and that includes and in-state team and Michigan opponent. Probably should be more of interest to most on the board.
This one is on ESPN3
One is on ESPN 2, the other on ESPNU and ESPN 3. Some people probably don't get the Toledo game while most get the Falcons and Huskies
WMU up 14-0 on Toledo. What now, people who picked Toledo to win the MAC!?
brah. Ain't no quit in the Toledo Torpedoes (it would've been the better mascot, if only for rhyming purposes).
As soon as I posted that Toledo started beating the snot out of WMU and now they're up 21-14. Shows how smart I am :)
Always thought UnivToledo would make a good catholic school,... (wait for it)... then they could be Holy Toledo!!
(I crack myself up!)
Woot...Go Western.....EMU still has a shot at things....
NIU has some real cute water bottle girls.
why doesn't espn move more high profile games to Tuesdays and Wednesdays?
No one in the MAC plays defense anymore?
Are those the guys who try to create turnovers?
The EMU-WMU game was 14-10.
It doesn't work in the MAC apparently....odd....
I liked the RB running around his own blockers on the screen to get tackled. Great 3rd and 10 play.
Is BGSU going with the 4 / 2.5 / 4.5 flex there? Should Gary Patterson be concerned about scheme plagiarism?
It's too bad only about 10 people saw it. That is about how many people seemed to be in the stands.
I never got why teams don't carry two punters. A lot of teams carry two kickers. One who is accurate for FGs and one with a big leg for kickoffs. Why not carry one punter with a big leg and one who is an expert at coffin kicking.
I also wonder what about that last play was associated with a photo of the most interesting man in the world....
Well I'm assuming rhino is a power play. Dave maybe.
Except that it is hard to really have a power play, especially on defense, when you can only tackle gingerly (sounds like something Chomsky would say if he was a football person).
You'd think there would have to be something more than just two items to control your play calls. Way too easy to figure out over the course of the season. Some way you could change it or a few pictures that are random garbage to confuse the defense.
Well time for me to bow out. Have to go be social with my wife's friends (hooray). Hopefully the second half treats you well.
Way to rip on your sick coworker guys. Way to be classy.
28-28, 8 combined turnovers.
1000 yards, 13 touchdowns, 8 turnovers, 6 punts.
And still 18 minutes to play.
NIU is wrecking shit. 45-14 with 5:49 left.
Don't forget to visit Tony Packo's Cafe while you're in The Glass City!
...and probably out of reach...
MOST POINTS SCORED IN REGULATION, BOTH TEAMS: Navy 74, North Texas 62 (2007)
MOST POINTS SCORED BY LOSING TEAM, REGULATION: San Jose St. 70, Rice 63 (2004)
MOST YARDS GAINED IN REGULATION, BOTH TEAMS: 1,640 (San Jose St. & Nevada, 2001)
Toledo drives for a bit, and fumbles it back! That's one way to gain field position.
Looks like a replay of last weeks game for Toledo. Tons of defense in the MAC this year
Most points scored by the losing team in regulation, and most first downs by both teams in a game (72).
That Gerg can coach three teams at once
