Thanks for the reminder, or else I would have been disappointed when I started looking for it at 8PM here.
Thursday night football open thread
Didn't Pitt lose to Youngstown State last week?
Must be a rebuilding year...
Lots of turmoil from having four head coaches in like two years.
This is going to be a blowout..
Holy smokes is Pitt awful. I mean, I know the loss to Youngstown State was bad, but I didn't see any of it since it was on during the Michigan game last Saturday. Wow...
It is a great day in North Philly to watch this game.
I cannot wait for the Temple/Pitt game later this season....
This is going to get ugly fast. I'm guessing 45 - 10 final.
Man, Pitt is really bad.
I thought Paul Chryst was an apparent offensive genius?
Montee Ball helps the resume quite a bit.
Where was Vinopal on that TD?
but Cullen Christian has been in there.
Is Adrian a starter for Cincinnati at DB?
but he's in the game. He almost sacked Sunseri just now, but Sunseri flipped the ball to Graham.
Minus ALL of the points
left for Arizona with RR.
But as we've seen it takes a miracle worker to clean up the mess he can leave
When I saw this line I knew it was easy money.
Does this mean Youngstown State isn't legit?
Vinopal with the whiff. I am breaking out in cold sweats.
EDIT: Not Vinopal but another white safety.
He was 1st team Big East last year. According to Scout we offered him.
how to tackle? Good lord.
I thought I'd get to watch a decent game of football tonight, but apparently I thought wrong. I hope I never have to see real Big Ten teams playing on a Thursday night. Games shouldn't be played during the school week simply to appease the Athletic Department's television executive masters.
Herm fucking gets it. Thank you.
I dont care what anyone says, Herm is a legend and deserves a couple free Tom Collins'.
Pitt - WTF
If Pitt played Alabama it would be a triple-digit game by the second quarter.
I plan to watch Alabama play some of the lesser SEC teams to (hopefully, please hopefully) make me feel a little better about our game. Ergo, Ole MIss will take Alabama to 2OT and win
So....then you're saying that UM is comparable to a "lesser SEC" team? Did I understand that correctly?
UM is better than most of the SEC teams. He's talking about Alabama playing S. Car or Georgia
It was more of "It'll be just my luck sort of thing". Like because I am hoping Alabama will beat Ole Miss even worse than they beat us, they will probably go ahead and lose to Ole Miss
Oh this Pitts defense is abismal, it's hurtful to watch
Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale for the first time. I'm enjoying it. Wait a minute, this isn't a drinking open thread? Oopsy daisy.
I've had it, pretty good (I like that kinda beer though). On a similar note, I'm having a Shock Top.
one of their Lemon Shandys. It was seven bucks a twelve pack last week and I picked up like three cases.
I feel bad for you.
Are you one of the "too cool for the wheat beer" guys?
Yes...haha. But there are much better wheat beers out there.
OK - but no matter what you're eating/drinking/driving/wearing/whatever there will always be better stuff out there.
At no point did I say I was drinking the best beer of all time tonight. I'm drinking a pretty good beer while I watch the game. No biggie.
Shock Top is utter garb...
That's right. You must be a bigot if you don't care for wheat beer. I just think it's kinda gross unless its in a shandy or a half & half. I need something to cover up the mealy taste.
Oh, and while I'm bitching, IPA drinkers with their clunky glasses and berets can stay off my lawn, too.
No, you can totally not like wheat beer, that's fine. It's being a snob about it that bugs me.
I'm not being a snob, I just don't know where you get off having an opinion different than mine.
No I'm not being condescending - do you even know what that means?
Is cracking me up, just drink your beers and be happy, I drink single malt scotch or good vodka.......and when I drink beer, I drink Dos Equis for obvious reasons.
Anyway, Pitt, thank you for taking average recruits away from us, you too Cincy.
I think its the inbev that's the turn off.
That's a good choice, just had it last week. I turned 21 not too long ago, and I'm trying to expand my beer horizons, so I try to get a new kind every time. If anyone has suggestions, go ahead.
Try Coors Light. They're pretty cheap, but don't taste like shit, and you can drink a ton of them.
Of all the beers you could recommend, you are going with Coors? Don't get me wrong, to each his own but damn, "you shouldn't a done dat, he's just a boy!"
Just trying to help. I just found out about Coors Light - I spent a number of my drinking years messing around with IPAs, microbrews, etc. If only someone would have shown me a little earlier.
Yeah, I'm not ashamed to say I went through a phase where I drank only natty light. Granted it was late HS / early college, but it was highly economic. And I still had a good time.
By the way, your input is much appreciated, and so is corundum's. I know everyone's taste is different, but I'm still interested.
Or elsewhere? That info would help everyone greatly.
Oh hey, I apologize, I'm in Ann Arbor.
Anything Bells, obviously. I would try some of the Goose Island Belgian Ales, Matilda is pretty damn good. New Holland is good, especially Dragon's Milk. Don't be fooled by where it's produced, Great Lakes makes incredible beer; Commodore Perry and Dortmunder Gold are my favorites. Someone said Dogfish Head, and I second that, India Brown Ale is an absolute must. I don't know how available it is in Ann Arbor, but there's a Wisconson brewery called Tyranena. They make a scotch ale called Sheep Shagger, it's incredible.
If you want to drop some change, even compared to other craft beer, I'd give Oaked Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard a try.
Congrats, you just made me really crave that India Brown Ale. It's definitely worth getting it when you can.
If you like wheat beer Hoegaarden is probably the best variety widely available that won't cost you over $10 for a sixer. I definitely prefer it over Shock Top and Blue Moon. If you like heavier beers like an IPA, Dogfish Head 60 Minute is a pretty good place to start. And if you are trying to get hammed, go with Raging Bitch IPA by Flying Dog.
With winter coming, try to work your way into some porters and stouts. Young's double chocolate stout, Arbor's espresso love and Rogue's shakespeare oatmeal stout are some of my favorites. I had a left-hand milk stout last week that was fantastic too. Cool thing is, especially in winter, they're great sippers at room temp and you don't have to plug up your fridge.
Try Shiner Bock. It's a Texas beer but they do sell it here in Michigan. I don't get too crazy with my variety but it's pretty smooth
lots and lots of Budweiser.. Speaking of,(crack),ahhh good stuff..
Hacker-Pschorr Weisse for me. First time I've had it and it's damn delicious.
Between the sack parade and having no offensive line to speak of, Tino Sunseri managed to get 26 passing yards in the first quarter, most of it on one pass. His -24 yards of rushing stands out too.
So ESPN3 is blacking out all the games now that are available on ESPN. How is someone without cable suppose to watch the Michigan games?
Once they started to get good games, ESPN was the reason I had to get cable. I get ESPN and ESPN 2, but unfortunately, ESPN 2 doesn't put anything worth watching on. Won't Michigan be on the Big Ten Channel, even the Massachusetts game?
I'm in Toronto. Last year we changed cable packages and I screwed up the selection, so I had to watch the stream for two games. Also the Lions Monday night game.
You can get a couple of decent radio streams pretty easily, though.
Borrow the login of a family member or friend as long as you can live with being a bit of a mooch.

Watching the Trotwood-Madison game and they interviewed someone on the sideline that just said there are rumors of Mike McCray decommitting and looking at OSU...
Someone? Just some random Ohio fan, or someone who might know?
I think he is just a reporter of Ohio high school football...after the interview the announcer said Trotwood's coach denounced the rumors and McCray isn't going anywhere. The reporter was probably a OSU guy and wanted to stir up some controversy since the majority of people watching are OSU people...
Yeah, that's kind of what I figured. People have been trying to spread that rumor for a while.
Would anybody actually be surprised?
"Unthunk himself" was just said. Nice.
When you have three SEC educated guys (none of which are from Vandy), those things are bound to happen.
I couldn't believe it when it happened. Knowing that, now it makes sense.
....on what can only be described as an innovative throw, and then there is holding, two stops and an interception by the Bearcats. You would have thought it was difficult to talk yourself out of that situation, but Pitt found a way.
You know that they're itching to say "Leviticus Payne".
Another day, another appearance by the the "D-(picture of fence)" sign. Will it ever lose popularity?
I almost feel bad for the Panthers, to be honest...
19:39 minutes of possession, 7-12 on third downs, 206 total yards of offense, 10 first downs, zero points. The keys so far might very well be the turnovers and the penalties that talked them right out of the endzone.
That pre-half time fail drive was epically inept.
To be fair, Sunseri threw a great short-yardage field goal to end the drive. I think you take that sort of momentum into halftime if you're on the losing end of a 17-0 game.
Announcer says of Pitt: "they are creaming them"
Pitt is not a good tackling team.
wanna tell Pitt the game started?
....and Pitt allows a delay of game penalty to get off a decent kick, which they in turn catch at the Cincinnati one. To paraphrase Animaniacs, for Pitt's sake, "The end zone will not bite you and throw you in the basement"
Well, Pitt sucks like whoa, but Graham is still good.
I think Pitt needs more than "Pitt recruiting Victory" and 157 lb monster Cameron Saddler and Paul Chryst's offensive genius.
drove me to watch the DNC (not a political statement at all).
I hate Missouri now.
I wonder what their tone will be like after a long season. Sometimes kids just need to step away from the mic.
Your Thursday night Moment of Zen:
That should totally get at least two points, I say.
Come on you panthers!
