DEP is one pretty wild show.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Not all manufacturers are||
Not all manufacturers are charging an additional $300 for the Smart tv option. Had a panasonic and the upgrade to the Smart tv was maybe $120 more. Also have a Vizio and the step up to the smart TV was $100 more than the non smart tv comparable. And sometimes its just easier to be able to play Netflix or Amazon streaming or Youtube from your tv instead of having to turn on an Xbox or PS3/4 or go thru Chromecast.

I'd have to agree with this. If you are planning on watching SD channels, why the hell would you bother spending a bunch of money on nice HD tv.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Stategizing??? Didn't he||
Stategizing??? Didn't he just win a US Open that was almost a warm up for British Open type courses? I think he's ready for linx golf
|5 weeks 5 days ago||He needs to try to make a cut||
He needs to try to make a cut before he starts thinking about winning a tourney.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Joe Buck was meh. Normans||
Joe Buck was meh. Normans ok. I'm not sure why they decided on the two people that they have doing the player post round interviews. Some chick for eye candy i suppose and the other is a college football announcer. I wish they would have actually shown more actual golf. I realize the 2 feature groups had the big names, but man sometimes they would only show maybe 3 or 4 shots per hour from someone outside those 2 groups.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I only saw them do the green||
I only saw them do the green ring around the whole once in the few hours of coverage i watched tonight. However they are doing that green shading thing that better shows just how undulating the greens are and i think that is a nice touch since you can't really tell on tv.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Oh, and the US is now||
Oh, and the US is now Oregon?? I don't remember exactly where flourescent yellow is in the American flag. Is it the stars?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||How is it the US can't find||
How is it the US can't find good defenders?? They've had the same shitty defense for the last 6 years (maybe longer, but thats all the longer i've been paying attention) If it weren't for Solo standing on here head, they'd be down 2 or 3 goals. And also, maybe we need more women from the SEC, because our team speed is not very impressive.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Damn, if its Lacoste then||
Damn, if its Lacoste then those jerseys and pullovers are gonna be expensive. Ever been in a Lacoste store? $90 for a basic polo shirt. $45 to $60 for thier t-shirts. Those authentic Lacoste game jerseys are gonna be going for $400 or so.
|8 weeks 5 hours ago||Damn, that game only took an||
Damn, that game only took an hour and a half? Not messing around out there on the mound. I like it.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||My friend's little brother (||
My friend's little brother ( and i say little only in age seeing as he was about 260 lbs) was a few years younger than us and a really good football player. Played D Line at an ACC school and then about 3 or so years in the NFL. He's been on a Nascar crew now for about 7or 8 years as a tire carrier. He worked for Dale Jr's team for a bit and now is onto another Nascar team. Its not uncommon for ex college athletes to be on the pit crews. I know the bigger Nascar teams have athletic trainers that work with the pit crew members full time. They did a peice about this on either Real Sports or the 60 Minutes Sports that runs on Showtime. Some of the pit crew members can make 6 figures, at least in Nascar. Not sure about Indy league.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||This is a bit of a flawed||
This is a bit of a flawed argument. Its an apparel contract, not an equipment contract. No the baseball and softball teams won't have to use Nike bats. Ohio State, a Nike school, uses Wilson footballs. Not Nike footballs. So i don't think you have to worry about our lacrosse team being at a disadvantage because they would have to use some Nike stick if they start making those. And the golf team will be able to use whatever clubs they want.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I could not agree with this||
I could not agree with this any more. I applaud WD's devotion to the program, but man he needs to take a week off to go get drunk and embarass himself in front of women. (As long as he's 21 of course). Maybe we could make an Eharmony profile for him.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I imagine this is what the||
I imagine this is what the atmosphere was like at that Baltimore Orioles game that had no attendance a few weeks back. Although there might be more fans there than a Tampa Bay Rays game.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||But could they beat the||
But could they beat the Winklevoss's?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I didn't read all 4 pages of||
I didn't read all 4 pages of responses so i apologize if someone already suggested it, but i always liked Ben Mezrich's books: Ugly Americans, Rigged, Bringing Down the House etc. They are non-fiction but sort of seem like fiction given some of the subjects. Plus i was a finance major and a lot of his books deal with money/numbers. Or maybe check out some biographies about people you find interesting.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Now i don't know how much to||
Now i don't know how much to read into it, but i've noticed something over the last few years. Everytime i see one of our players is prepping for a draft (basketball or football) it seems like they rarely are wearing Adidas gear. Especially shoes. I remember seeing Taylor Lewan working out and he was wearing Nikes. Nik was wearing Nikes. GR3 i think was wearing Nike. And Mitch was wearing some other shoes i couldn't tell. I'd assume these are kids that have tons of Adidas shoes from their time as a Michigan athlete, yet they all choose to get different shoes once they start training outside the Adidas sponsored UM teams. Maybe that means something.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I'd definitely put him in the||
I'd definitely put him in the top 5. With some of the J Lindeberg guys and Ryo Ishikawa.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Not bad for the guy that was||
Not bad for the guy that was named as "The Most Overrated Golfer on Tour" by an anonymous survey of players earlier in the week. Thats one way to stick it to the haters.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Or LSU, or Texas A&M, or||
Or LSU, or Texas A&M, or VIrginia Tech, or Illinois, Washington or Minnesota, or Oregon State, or Arkansas. You know, all those basketball powers.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||well 2015 wasn't a stellar||
well 2015 wasn't a stellar recruiting year for the basketball team thats for sure. How the fuck does LSU have a top 5 or 10 class in basketball? They have like 3 big time recruits and i thought i saw on EspnU that they had another top recruit that decommited from them? How the hell are they pulling that off?
|12 weeks 4 days ago||The #5 player in the nation||
The #5 player in the nation that committed to them earilier. So i guess the answer is at least one other elite player other than Brown
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I think he's referring to||
I think he's referring to them getting rid of Cuonzo Martin, who is now the coach at Cal and has since recruited the #1 and #5 players in the country according to Scout.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Haha, check out the dude||
Haha, check out the dude peaking in the windows at the Funchess house. Hilarious
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Haha, of course. Michigan||
Haha, of course. Michigan player gets drafted right when they are switching over networks so he gets very little coverage.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||That was a really odd tweet.||
That was a really odd tweet. And if that ends up costing us a big time recruit then i'd be pretty pissed.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||He wanted to decide in time||
He wanted to decide in time so he can get nice seats for the Derby tomorrow.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I think its based on a bit||
I think its based on a bit more than just that. Sam not being nearly as confident. And now all of a sudden he is deciding tonight after all this UK momentum the last 24 hours. Oh well fuck it. Can't say i'm surprised.

Haha, nice find
