I thought we were over that?
Maybe DeBord will take it.
|7 hours 36 min ago||And if you are going to||
And if you are going to appropriate European Sport culture just because it's soccer, then good god, at least pick the right European Sport culture for soccer:

What's the mortality rate on .gifs?
I bet it's pretty high.

Enroll at the University of Utah.
You can transfer later.
|9 hours 18 min ago||As fans, we're all about the||
As fans, we're all about the show. But there is the distinct possibility that these positions were picked the way they were for developmental reasons and not just to win a scrimmage game.
I would not read too much into who got placed where and who "wins" on Saturday.
|9 hours 26 min ago||He should be an Early||
"He should be an Early Enrollee at a University somewhere."
Oh, wait . . .
|9 hours 43 min ago||We keep benefiting from other||
We keep benefiting from other people's stupidity.
Thankfully, there's a lot of stupid people.
|9 hours 52 min ago||Um, I've thrown more TDs than||
Um, I've thrown more TDs than everyone on our roster combined.
|9 hours 54 min ago||Agreed. Which is why offense||
Agreed. Which is why offense does not have to carry the day. Which is why Rudock, a competent, predictable QB is just what the Doctor ordered.
We don't need to be Boise State in 2015. We need to be Wisconsin.
|9 hours 59 min ago||Seriously. OSU will probably||
Seriously. OSU will probably be ranked #1 or #2. If our standard for a one-and-done QB is that he has to beat the #1 or #2 team in the country or he's a failure . . . well then you can go ahead and fire about 120 CFB QBs.

GREAT prank Iowa, Michigan, ESPN, and the Big Ten front office. You really got us on that one. Way to work together.
|10 hours 12 min ago||Whoo Hoo! We got us our own||
Whoo Hoo! We got us our own One-and-Done.
Suck it, Kentucky.
|10 hours 18 min ago||And that's the point of the||
And that's the point of the whole thing. He doesn't have to be better than other QBs out there that aren't coming here this fall. He just has to be better than what we have right now.

Holy shit, I thought that was Rudock running. I had to look twice.
Back to reality.

Clearly Herbie is speaking.

Can he get here in time for the Spring Game as a Free Agent?
|10 hours 27 min ago||Me too. Until someone gets||
Me too. Until someone gets hurt. Then I'll whine about that.
It's what we do.
|14 hours 3 min ago||He is not being "called out"||
He is not being "called out" for being a college kid trying hard. Webber is correctly pointing out that it is waaay premature to be comparing him with NBA guys like DeAndre Jordan.
He is not saying WCS is not a great college player, he is saying it is time to dial back the instantly-great-NBA-player hype.
|14 hours 10 min ago||People hated us because we||
People hated us because we were good in everything. Nobody hates Vanderbilt.
|14 hours 18 min ago||The Georgetown area is||
The Georgetown area is expensive as hell and there is no space to build an on-campus arena. At least the Verizon center is a step up from the old Cap center.
But yeah, Georgetown does not have very good fan support these days. Maryland gets more buzz in the DC area than Georgetown does. And even that's not very much since DC is a Pro sports town.
|14 hours 30 min ago||Yeah, if it was 45 degrees||
Yeah, if it was 45 degrees and sunny for a November game, that would be great "football weather" and attendance would be up. But now it's bad football weather because it's 4 months later?
|14 hours 35 min ago||Hey, I'm telling. MODS!!||
Hey, I'm telling.
|14 hours 39 min ago||It's fake. But it does not||
But it does not matter, because he will leave anyway.
Knowing Harbaugh, he'll proably wind up here.

Too early for a Hello: Jake Rudock post.
/whispers: hi jake.

Yes, it would have been DeBord.
I am convinced to this day that the reason that the AD got caught flat-footed in the post-Lloyd coaching search is because Lloyd had DeBord all lined up as his hand-chosen successor. He had Henne, Long, and Hart coming back as Seniors in 2007. He was going to win the Big Ten and possibly even the NC and then ride off into the sunset, leaving the team to his trusty Deputy.
But then App State happened. Then Oregon. Then Henne's injury and the anemic Ohio State game. There was no chance of DeBord taking over after that, but there was no Plan B other than to aimlessly search around at the 11th hour for a coach.
|1 day 5 hours ago||How come all "alternate||
How come all "alternate histories" are always simple reverse linear interpolations? Event A happened and we lost, so change it and now we'll win.
But what if the rollover had not happened, we got Cleaves, he lead us to the NC in 2000 . . . and we lost to Florida on a buzzer beater?
What if Crable had not had the late hit, OSU punted, we got the ball back . . . and Henne threw an interception?
Had I not struck out in Little League in the big game against our rival and had gotten the winning RBI instead, I'd like to think that my life would be totally changed for the better.
But, eh, probably not. I still would have fucked up 9th grade algebra.

Every stock rose after he left Domino's. He left at the nadir of the Financial-crash bear market.
|1 day 6 hours ago||I admit, I am naive. What||
I admit, I am naive. What specifically does "He is going to get a huge sponsorship from Adidas out of college" actually mean?
When he goes to the NBA, he will have a number of endorsement offers to choose among. Why would he lock himself in now? Is he getting paid now to lock him in? How does that work in regard to "amateur” status?
|1 day 6 hours ago||Wow, it looks like everybody||
Wow, it looks like everybody gets a tournament.
Can I have one? I'm short, old, and have no skills. But I watch a lot of basketball on TV. That should qualify me.

How did we pay them back in '92?
We did lose to Washington in '91, but beat them in '92.
