this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Pre-Gaming with Pat: Northwestern
That looks awesome! Backyard football is the best November activity, bar none. Once you have that Thanksgiving dinner... then it's on to sliding yourself down a steep incline on a small piece of plastic at high speeds thanks to your increased mass.
I have a question for those more "in the know" than myself: do recruits get taken around campus on gameday to see how enthusiastic the students are for the games or do they follow the players for their gameday rituals? I can only imagine being a high school junior and seeing these types of shennanigans!
I, along with many others, have become increasingly skeptical of new folks around these parts. I'd like to believe you are real, but I've been hurt before. Real or not, welcome to the board.
Haha! Of course I remember that Alabama guy, but I'm real... for real! My name's Stephen and thanks for the welcome, I always like to hear new voices on here anyways, sometimes it can get a little musty with re-articulated points used over and over again, so I thought I could add my opinions and knowledge to the mix.
Where to begin. This was just great from start to finish. I'm not sure who Pat is but if he has more videos with intoxicated students chugging Five O'Clock Vodka, and girls answering questions they weren't asked, then count this guy as a fan!
.... Not sure if serious.
Sparty was my favorite one this season. Not too shabby though. Nice work Pat.
My only hope is that Da'Quan gets on MGoBlog at some point. He is too funny.
Only if all of his comments can be with audio clips
I would then become more addicted to MGoBlog...My fiance would kill me
Like Plaxico.... With out the glock!!!!
The Daquan shtick is one of my least favorite things about life.
I've had similar thoughts, though maybe not as extreme. I've tried to readjust my perception based on the amount of support I've read on here in favor of his shtick. I haven't been able to change my initial thoughts. Mind remains open, but as of yet I am unconvinced . I was beginning to come around until I saw the Madison clip. The Daquan hazing the campus tours was quite a turnoff.
Where are all the jackholes who complain about the coeds not studying enough and drinking too much? The best part of these videos are reading the complaints from the dbags bitching about how these videos are a terrible respresentation of the students at UofM. Keep in mind, this is one day out of six. This does not happen every day. Most of these students do go on to have succesful careers. Not everyone has to be miserable all of their lives. Having fun every once in a while does not limit your ability to get good grades. In fact, it may help relieve stress and promote productivity.
Pat, you are a genius and are bound for a big break. Keep up the good work. I appreciate your effort and your humor.
Is that you? One day out of six is pretty funny!
Man, these videos are a terrible respresentation of the students at UofM. I wish they would stop doing that thing.
That did not take long. In the amount of time it took to write a response two people already started bitching. I get it, to each their own. I do not understand if people are too dumb to realize the humor, or if they just like to complain? The Daquan skit is a joke. It is not real!! Embrace it, or dont watch it. There is nothing to have an open mind about. You either get it and like it, or you dont. If you have not liked it, you will not and should stop complaining about it. If you have not noticed, these are a regular part of the videos.
Wait, so the upper-middle class white kid doing a lightly updated minstrel act for a sea of upper-middle class white kids isn't really speaking with his natural inflection? Get the fuck out of here.
Embrace it, or don't watch it.
You nailed it. I get uncomfortable watching him. I'm not going to call it racist, but it sure seems to be in poor taste.
If Willis Ward thinks so, I'm going to have to go with him...
these videos are great, too bad there's only one left this season
Appreciate the Hoodie! Being someone who went to school at U of M a long, long time ago, I never would have heard Hoodie without your influence. My kids and I enjoy No Interruption in particular.
I thought you said last year that you were done with Pre-Gaming with Pat? I wanted to battle rap DQ but I moved to China because that dream was lost. Maybe I'll battle DQ as a guest on your late night talk show when I move back in three years. (I know you don't have that show yet but I'm confident in you!)
Thought I was done last year but the appeal of spending my fall Saturdays interviewing drunk college students was too much to resist. Next week's episode will be the last one.
When is he gonna put out a new record?
So Pat is to blame for the students not showing up on time to games...
There go those grungy girls with backwards hats and raspy voices again :(
Generally, I love these videos. It does seem they are becoming a little formulaic, however. Da'Quan and that other dude always make an appearance, and the focus is almost exclusively on frats. I'm sure there is plenty of great drunk people material beyond the frats. Maybe mix in the non pre-game atmosphere at a co-op, or track down some wasted alums at a tailgate. I do recognize frat boys and girls, as the drunkest and unintentionally funniest folks on campus, will always be part of the mix. Keep it up!
Maybe Da'Quan could do his own pregame show instead of being interviewed by Pat. I'm not raising this because I find his shtick particularly offfensive--I just think the kid isn't very good at ad-libbing it. For example, the video of Da'Quan accosting kids on campus was actually pretty funny. Let Da'Quan set his own agenda and he shines.
I can't believe Leonidis-beard guy is still in college. 6 years in undergrad has got to be fun though.
If you can get someone to keep writing tuition checks, why would you ever leave?
He really does the damn thing.
Speaking as an old Phi Delt, who played in the Mud Bowl in 79, 80 and 81, it is not the Mud Bowl without Phi Delta Theta. If the SAE's had any honor, they would restore the Mud Bowl to its true rivalry, even though that would result in them losing virtually every year.
