Give me my negs!
Because... I told you so (most recently in my last post 3 weeks ago)!
It's funny watching so many now act as if this wasn't hard to see coming. It shouldn't have been. But it's been a lonely opinion to have around here for some time.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||The only reason I've put any||
The only reason I've put any weight into the assumptions that Shane will be leaving is because of vague "inside info" I've heard rumblings about. I've seen nothing publicly to make me think that's the case and the circumstances up until now certainly don't lead me to the conclusion that he's on his way out. I think he may have very well just wanted another year to work with Harbaugh and compete for the job. Rather than wasting a year of eligibility as the #2 behind a 5th year transfer.

"Details available!... Just not here."
|19 weeks 6 hours ago||I don't think they were||
I don't think they were predicting a total destruction of BYU or that our single/close loss would be to top ten-ish team who would utterly destroy the Ducks.
The actual 3-1 looks far better than the preseason hypothetical 3-1s.
|21 weeks 23 hours ago||Any polls this early are an||
Any polls this early are an absolute joke. Arguing where we do/don't belong is just silly. But they're not going anywhere... So I try to look at them as the mindless amusement they are (like ESPN).

I guess this as good a place as any to go on record and take my lumps...
I think Smith is the guy, with Isaac mixed in (pretty much what got week one). I also think the results will improve going forward.
I think there's a ton of misplaced hope in Drake and there was a lot of "right time, right place" involved in his success last year. Add in another injury to come back from...
If I'm wrong?... Wonderful!
|22 weeks 3 days ago||I think the bigger concern is||
I think the bigger concern is that Rudock made a bunch of bad throws/decisions that weren't INTs... Or in addition to the INTs.
I thought he was supposed to be the guy who takes care of the ball and doesn't lose games? If he's not, than why not try the "dangerous" guy with the big arm and mobility?... Unless of course it was never even close and Shane was never really in it?
But I'm just thinking/drinking aloud... I do trust Harbaugh (even more so on this than in general). If Rudock is still the guy I'm sure it's the right decision.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||I thought Smith was given the||
I thought Smith was given the tougher job and asked to go against a stout run D focused heavily on just that.
Isaac was given better chances to get some space due to the situations and play calling when he was up. He did what he was asked and I thought he looked pretty good.
Smith missed a couple holes but I was impressed with how hard he was to bring down. I think he'll have a big year.
I think they'll both play similar roles going forward as they did tonight.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||You can't be everywhere, all||
You can't be everywhere, all of the time, without some occasional over pursuit and failures to make a play. Not to mention maybe being a little too amped up under the circumstances.
"Let's see it in a game first" has been my feeling on the Pepper's hype (though I was optimistic with the overwhelming amount of it). I'm now 100% sold. The kid looks amazing.

Looks like Fox Sports Detroit (663 on DirecTv) will be showing them Mondays at 5:00 eastern.

I just finished season 1 a couple weeks ago and I'm pretty excited about S2.
Currently watching Mr Robot... Good show.

This is worse than covering competitive eating, video games or poker. At least those involve actual competition. WWE is a soap opera.

It's amusing how much different the tone of this thread is than the one from a couple weeks ago. I'll stick with Shane...

I am not stunned.

Most overrated feature ever. If anything is tempting me to get and Xbox it's that Elite controller... And confirmed Fallout 4 mods (though they're probably coming to PS4).
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Shane Morris. I think he gets||
I think he gets an opportunity to play this season even if he's not the starter on day one. I think he'll make waves when he does.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know... Reading the||
I don't know...
Reading the HTTV position previews thought we might run the table... Then in the back they all predict 7-5!
Honestly, I'll be somewhat disapointed with fewer than 9 wins (with bowl) including an upset against OSU or MSU.
Sky's the limit on the upside. I think we have a ton of untapped talent that's ripe for a breakout. I don't think it's crazy to think Harbaugh could "shock everyone".
|29 weeks 4 days ago||I voted Shane. I actually||
I voted Shane. I actually think Rudock is the safer bet... But I refuse to be associated with those writing Shane off and denying that he's got a good shot at it.

Yes, 68 is way too many IMO. I think 8 would be the sweet spot for football.

Noon games are awful! I cant imagine living on the west coast with 9am football on a Saturday... But it may be better than needing to set aside a 3 hour chunk of time right in the middle of the day.

You may want to take another look at my post and think about the context.

Isn't that just up the highway from the Ass-Umption Junction?
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Did something happen to||
Did something happen to Isaac? I know I didn't notice him in the spring.
If we can't get someone to step up between Isaac, Green and Smith? I'll be surprised. Also, between Morris (big arm and mobile) and Rudock (experienced "game manager") both under Harbaughs tutelage... I'm not too worried about QB either.
|35 weeks 9 hours ago||Yeah, this was forshadowed||
Yeah, this was forshadowed for a long time... Even before this season. The idea that they pulled this out of their ass just because they wanted to do "the worst thing possible" is ridiculous. If that was ther goal they've been building to it for some time.
Never understood the "didn't need to actually show it" criticism either. The brutally that feels so personal is a core part of the show. If you can't handle it? Maybe find another show?
People upset that it's not the books (I'm a fan myself)? Get over it already. Nobody cares.

Something tells me the writing was all over the walls by this point?

I'm sorry. Have an upvote!
|35 weeks 20 hours ago||The fact that the show can||
The fact that the show can have the effect on me that it does is why I love it... Even when I hate it. Not much fiction that can move me. It's not like it was cheap "shock value" either... I suspected it was coming all week (hinted at for a long time really) and it made complete sense in the context of the story.
|35 weeks 21 hours ago||I'm actually rooting for||
I'm actually rooting for Stanis to get the Reek treatment and skinned now. This episode fucked me up worse than any other. Having a daughter around that age probably didn't help... And I had just been saying how I was starting to like Stanis this season. Now he's the first name on my bedtime list.
