...with a healthy dose of Michigan State and Central Ohio University. Bad week for conference pride, good week for schadenfreude.
TWIS is up!
game gave me a feeling of satisfaction (we did what we were supposed to do)
But the MSU and Ohio games gave me the most joy last weeked.
With all due respect to Brian, I didn't think the two Pittsburgh quotes were really all that outrageous, especially the second one.
I noticed this last week, and I was hoping it was one-off, but no...some jackass is ripping off Brian's TWIS word for word. I thought I'd share some of my MGoIndignation. Guy claims to be the agent for JMFJ
It's the Jerzy Kosinski of the blog world.

The guy who blatantly plagiarized that piece.
These people have a facebook page that allows public comments without "liking" their page. Just sayin'.
It also appears they slap their own name on a plethora of SB Nation articles, not just Brian's.
Yeah, I saw that too, and e-mailed both Brian and the SBnation editors. Hopefully that asshole gets what's coming.
His business' name just says to me, "I don't really have firm grasp on everything about sports marketing--I've got a 50-degree blind spot."
I wonder if his standard pitch is "Let me manage you and I promise you will be working hard for you 21/6!"
Brian's article is great.
The Bauserman joke made my week.
Not sure I agree with Brian that Illinois is clearly the 3rd best team in the league. With Nebraska looking a little shaky especially on defense, Illinois might be the 2nd best team.
Each passing week that game is starting to scare me.
That's what I said during last year's game.
The best shadenfruede I saw this weekend wasn't on TWIS. A Spartan board member referred to MSU as "an abortion of a team."
"I was in the end zone facing touchdown jesus, and when ND had the ball deep in that end and it was dead silent, I yelled, "Don't drink and drive tonight, Floyd!!! Call a cab, Floyd!!!" everybody all around just stared and looked like they wanted to hit me. I also told the obnoxious fans in front of me congrats and to enjoy the Car Care Bowl with their top 10 recruiting classes"
This should be in the "At Least That Guy Who Wanted To Murder Hookers After ND's Loss To Michigan Didn't See Me" file.
And here is why outing players deserves a trip to Bolivia:
does anyone know where Bauserman lives?
I want to visit him.I'm dead serious
