I can't remember the question, but I once answered Curly, Moe, and Larry on an American History test in college. The prof wrote "who's the stooge?" on my exam. I never would have guessed he had a sense of humor.

He looks like a gremlin. Don't feed him after dark.

They couldn't stop talking about Evans but Walton had more points on half as many FG attempts. If we can play any semblance of D or rebounding against Louisville, I think we will be OK.

They were who we thought they were, and we ALMOST let them off the hook! Great game.

Unfortunately they're playing four guys off the bench significant minutes. Chances of that don't look good.

If he wants the OSU job, he won't have to wait much longer.

I am as well. Here's a kind of serious question not limited to Indiana's situation. What would be worse, playing at home in an empty stadium/arena or having a full home crowd boo you because you and/or your organization suck?

Looking at that picture of Crean, I'm imagining the conversations he and Jim have over dinner at the holidays. He really married up into the Harbaugh family.

Should we be concerned that Oklahoma State is the third most underseeded team according to this method?

His skills may also include funneling protection money back to the Russian mob for his clients. Just sayin.

My wife (then girlfriend) and I got the last roadtrip in her dad's 1972 911 Targa before he sold it. We took it up SR93 from Athens OH up through Amish country for a day. She said it was too cold to take the top off. We took the top off. I will never believe that car only had 175 horses (per the owner's manual IIRC). So much fun to drive. For reference.

To me, that's the perfect illustration that he takes it too seriously. Coach might as well say "OK kids, have fun unless it means I have to lose". That's not a very good lesson to teach your kids in my opinion.

I'm sure John knows that loss eats at Jim every day. He doesn't need to mention it.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think the "participation||
I think the "participation trophies" comment is over the top. There's a healthy balance between competition and fun that most people can walk. Just because someone isn't win at all costs doesn't mean that they just show up and go through the motions.

I thought the same thing. On the surface it's funny, but when your older brother has to keep you from running over your daughter to win a "friendly" game of basketball, that seems a bit much. I guess that competitive drive is what makes Harbaugh though.

I know we're all frustrated with Delany and this whole situation, but let's take a second to be thankful that everyone on the plane is safe. The rest will work itself out.

I'm just going to leave this here to try to cheer you guys up a little.
Edit: This was supposed to be a reply to the original comment about our AD.

It must have been hard to write Schembechler on a football!

I forgot about the new CBs. I get what you're saying about older bikes too. My daily rider is an '83 and I keep asking myself why I don't get something new.

Have you priced 1970s CBs lately? Apparently they are very popular with the hipsters and their prices have gone through the roof.

That doesn't really fit the "not wanting to spend a lot of money" requirement. The stickers on those "bikes" are ridiculous. Might as well just buy a nice used convertible. Sorry, rant over.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||I agree with most of what's||
I agree with most of what's been said. A cruiser style bike is usually more comfortable and has a lower seat height than similar size sport or sport standards. Unless you are a very large person, don't listen to people saying that you can't be comfortable on anything under X engine size. My wife and I put over 60K miles on a 600 sport standard riding in all kinds of road conditions. As someone who hates caring for chains, I would recommend a shaft drive bike but that's just my preference.
If you are mainly running around town, a scooter is the way to go. Better mpg and most are automatic. Don't get anything under a 150cc if you want to go over about 45-50 mph. My dad has a Stella 150 that will cruise at about 55 to 60 but that's with an aftermarket exhaust system and it's 2 stroke.
I really hope that you take a safety course, even if it isn't required wherever you end up getting licensed. It will give you skills and confidence you need to enjoy your riding experience. I still follow the advice my dad gave me 25 years ago when I started riding. Expect every car you see to pull out in front of you!! I hope you enjoy whatever bike you choose.

I'm pretty sure I'd eat all my profits if I owned a bakery. My town used to have quite a bit of industry and we have a lot of vacation rental properties, so our citizens are an odd mix of hard working, educated, self-made business types and "people of Walmart". It's . . . interesting.

I have to get them at the local Kroger here in SE Ohio. They usually only have lemon. Has anyone every tried paczkis from Giant Eagle? We don't have many decent local bakeries around here.

The answer is clearly #1 and if you don't agree you deserve a set of elephant balls.

Is it too early to start yelling about how bad this year sucks? Oh what the hell, DAMN YOU 2017!!!! Did I do it right?
