At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

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".

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?

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.
|7 weeks 4 days 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!
|7 weeks 5 days 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.
|7 weeks 5 days 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.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I feel detached in third||
I feel detached in third person, like I'm controlling a puppet. Where I feel like first person actually puts me in the shoes of the character and is far more immersive for me. I'm also not a fan of the camera and sightline issues third person creates (mostly talking shooters now). I prefer first person for just about everything... Shooting, flying, driving, fighting.
I wish I could get into that type of play. Those games look amazing and I really enjoyed them both... For about an hour.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I agree with most of your||
I agree with most of your post. I do think it's worth pointing out that even though the PS4/One aren't as cutting edge as some past consoles were at launch, they're still far more powerful than their predecessors. The 360 was 8 years old and the PS3 was 7 y/o when the PS4/One launched. I'm not sure if I agree with the ".5" comment with that in mind... Relative to say, the original Xbox to the 360 only being 4 years apart and the PS2 to PS3 being 6 years apart even with the PS2 being a sales monster... The leap from last gen to this one is still large.

Well, I'm 10+ years married with two kids... So I'm not.
Good for you though.

PS4 is $399 and Xbox One is $350 (if I'm not mistaken) and I'm pretty sure you can find games bundled in at that price with either. Amazon had the PS4 with a choice of several games at $399 recently.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||If you're not already tied to||
If you're not already tied to the Xbox (all your friends on Xbox, must have Halo, etc)? The PS4 all the way IMO. I was on Xbox the last two gens and made the switch back to Sony this gen (along with most of my friends). Hardware is better (how much so is hotly debated and I won't get into it) and it's selling at a record pace (typically means it'll get catered to more by 3rd parties).

FWIW the Bethesda store has an estimated ship date of "tba 2015".
... Trying to contain the optimism... Trying...
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I was a fan of Skyrim but||
I was a fan of Skyrim but couldn't get into The Witcher. But that's mostly because I much prefer first person and don't like the third person combo/parry combat systems like you see in The Witcher, Batman, Shadow Of Mordor, etc. If you liked Skyrim and enjoy that type of third person gameplay?... I'd say The Witcher is a no-brainer.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Probably (and PC)... And for||
Probably (and PC)... And for the better. If they make it for last gen I hope they're completely separate projects (/different games). The last thing I want is it being weighed down by last gen like Destiny was.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I agree 99+% of the time.||
I agree 99+% of the time. This is that less than 1%.
I'll pre-order and be at the midnight launch. Fallout 3 is probably my all time favorite game (definitely top 3) and I've been eagerly anticipating this announcement for years!

I hadn't read the other thread until now...
The criticism was rather tame.
This thread is even worse.

I had a dream last night that the "Zombie-Mountain" was fighting Jorah Mormont in front of the queen (the real one)... Not that it would make any sense.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I don't use headphones for||
I don't use headphones for music but I have a set of Sennheiser 558s that I use with an Astro Mixamp for gaming and I'm very pleased. They sound much better and are far more comfortable than any "gaming headphones" I had used previously.
|13 weeks 10 hours ago||Mayweather will dominate this||
Mayweather will dominate this fight (unless he's hit the wall since his last fight) and he would have won decisively years ago before the Pac losses (though back then I could have at least made some easy money betting on Floyd). My take is pretty much the same as if this fight was happening back when it would have been interesting...
When two elite fighters meet the edge always goes to the superior defensive fighter and technician. That's always been Floyd (arguably the best ever in that regard). I don't think people realize how much bigger Floyd is going to be in there either. Forget the stats... Just wait until they're in the ring. Pac will look strikingly smaller. Floyd made Mosley and Oscar look like they were fighting up a class or two. Those same guys made Pac look small and would have manhandled him in their primes.
FWIW I can't stand Floyd and I'd love to be wrong. But I think the smart money was on Floyd even before Pac's recent woes.

I haven't watched a lot of e-sports. But when I have the commentators were even slightly more annoying and useless than the typical sports commentator.

So far every season has been better than the one before IMO. That's my biggest worry... That they can't possibly go anywhere but down from here.
