Brady's going to have a lot of time to play euchre.
|5 hours 1 min ago||Is that guy a Vampire?||
Maybe I've been watching too much True Blood on HBO, but he appears to be crying tears of blood out of his left eye, which is a trait I now associate with Vampires. If anyone has been maced before, or has experience with macing situations, can you tell me if that is normal?
|7 hours 10 min ago||The counter||
I think the guy responsible for counting is the player between the snapper and the punter. You want the punter thinking about punting, not counting players. Looking back at the play, it seems like the counter is the guy who is missing. They had 7 men on the line, two flex tight ends if you will, the punter, and empty space.
From the endzone view of the play, you can see the two gunners coming down the field, then 20 yards of open space, then 3 more guys, then another 20 yards of open space. So the alleys were not really alleys, they were wide open expanses of space, screaming run into me, much like the state of Utah.
|7 hours 20 min ago||The title||
refers to the fact that for the non-ESPN3 savvy audience, the game effectively ended with 7:34 (or thereabouts) still left on the clock. The title is not complete because the game was not complete, for me at least.
I don't think you are insane, but you may have a brain abnormality.
|16 hours 8 min ago||Saddam's PR guy||
If I recall correctly, that's a photo of Saddam Hussein's PR guy who kept claiming that they had everything under control while our tanks were entering Baghdad.

stop? Sorry. Bad pun is bad.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Hoke||
I saw an ad today for a maize and blue T-shirt with "FIRE HOKE" on it. If you see anyone wearing one on Saturday, you have my permission to call them an asshole to their face.
|2 days 21 hours ago||well,||
alcohol mixed with crowd psychology leads to real stupidity sometimes.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Pace||
The only good thing about the slow pace is that it reduces Brian's UFR workload by about 25%, saving him from a lifetime of crippling carpal tunnel.

He actually needs to eliminate one to get dow to a pair.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Worry about Michael Thomas||
Do I have to start referring to my brother as "Michael Thomas (NTMT.)"
|4 days 4 hours ago||The last person||
I recall being so upset about the ineligible man downfield thing was Chris Spielman.
|4 days 7 hours ago||26-0 vs Temple||
Yeah, I know we regularly beat up the MAC, but Penn State's whole schedule was MAC-like until they joined the B1G. Now it's schedule is MAC Plus. (That's my new name for the Big Ten.)
|4 days 7 hours ago||The enemy of my enemy||
is still my enemy, and I enjoy when they take shots at each other. Thanks for adding that perspective to the Dantonio thing.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Transcript error||
I noticed the transcript was missing the follow-on to the question right before the jump. It went like this:
Doug, do you think your offense is still saying "Ga-ga, goo-goo," or have they progressed to actual words, like, "ma-ma, da-da."
"Your strange baby metaphors startle and confuse me. I'm just a simple, unfrozen caveman co-ordinator."
Yeah, the question about Funchess was awful, but that baby analogy stuff was crazy.

We're practically twins
|1 week 58 min ago||Band Day / Kid Rock chronology||
Yeah, I know Band Day ended a good decade or two before Kid Rock released Bawitdaba, but I'm not going to let that mess up my lame ending.

I think he means Devin Horford.
|1 week 3 days ago||CRex's whereabouts||
Based on his last diaries, I suspect he got lost somewhere in Outer Mongolia.
EDIT: This is what I was referring to: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/ot-crex-and-mongolia

or reading your mind, according to True Blood. Now that would be annoying.
|1 week 5 days ago||"you gave up 43 times..."||
What is that referring to? Anybody have a clue?
|1 week 5 days ago||My candidate||
Career coaching record: 146-94
Monotonically increasing win totals at all 5 coaching stops
From Dennis Franchione's coaching tree
53 years old - has enough experience but is still at least a good decade left before he retires
Extensive mid-western background, beneficial for recruiting
The only drawback that I can see is that he looks like an actual gopher. Yes, I'm talking about Jerry Kill. While he may not be the ideal candidate or the best "name" candidate, that's the kind of resume I'm looking for.

like, gobs and gobs of money
|1 week 6 days ago||He woke up Sunday morning||
with no way to hold his head that didn't hurt. I think the game had something to do with that.
|1 week 6 days ago||GF cookbooks||
When I first read that, I thought, cool, Ace has a girl friend, but he might want to check out a gluten free cookbook instead of his girl friend's cookbook, and then it clicked for me. I can be a bit dense sometimes...
|1 week 6 days ago||drive chart||
The answer is in the drive chart. They had all or nothing drives, while ours were consistently meh. We'd get a few first downs and then miss a FG or turn the ball over. They did early damage and then were content to run out the clock.
|1 week 6 days ago||Smith/Green||
Smith averaged around 4.3 and Green was at 1.9, yet Green got the majority of the carries. I wonder what the coaches are seeing in practice to give Green the edge.
|1 week 6 days ago||tempo||
One thing you hear about defending the spread is to keep it off the field so your defense can rest, but we're two-deep at most defensive positions. I don't think we need to slow-tempo to help the defense. If a hurry up is necessary, they should go hurry up. I'm more worried that Hoke kept the tempo slow to limit the embarrassment.
