At my office. Troegs Perpetual IPA. At 7.5% ABV, a strong start to my Friday evening.

I certainly wouldn't object to spacing out the content a little better between days. For example, today was very heavy content and yesterday was fairly light. Couldn't hurt to divide them a little better.
But seriously, MOAR content is better. No question about this.

Bud light now - sucks, but I'm sitting at my desk. Beer o'clock in the office! So that's a plus.

I work at a hedge fund, I watched Lehman go down hard and seeing my beloved Wolverines being (aptly) called Lehman Brothers really just hit home.
I was depressed before. I'm now very, very depressed.

Can we discuss how freaking amazing it is that a West Virginia blog is called "Couch Fire Sports?"
I mean, you can't make this stuff up! This guy totally knows his audience.

Seriously, this is beyond amazing for a preview. Are you heading to Bed Bath and Beyond too? Or maybe there won't be enough time...

Clemson is seriously an amazing place to go to a football game. The whole atmosphere from tailgating, to the Tigers rubbing Howard's Rock and running down the hill to the game itself is an experience not to be missed.
I've been to about 4 games there over the years and I have more and more fun each time I go. Go to the game, then go to a bar.
The Esso club is always an experience. I was there for that 16-14 Michigan w Purdue in 2004. It was awesome, and the best part was after the game was over, I went back outside to tailgate because those southerners kept going all night!

Is there any way to make it compatible for anything pre OS 4.0?
I know I'm a luddite, but I still have the old 3G and I refuse to upgrade after all the horror stories I've read...
On the other hand, this may just force me to buy a new one.

If it's a different sport, it's allowed. It's ridiculous, but allowed.
The issue is getting the team to give you millions of dollars and then let you play a different sport and risk injury. Obviously in this case Parker is going to take out a nice sized insurance policy.

I fall into neither the Tate camp nor the Denard camp.
I fall into the "I want Michigan to play the QB that gives them the best chance of winning camp"
Given that both QB's knew they were in an open battle, these comments are pretty shocking. If this means that Denard gives them a better chance to win then so be it.

Pretty much every school in the Big 10 think Michigan is their huge, if not #1 rival.
I remember going to a game at Illinois one year and every single student was wearing a "Muck Fichigan" shirt. It was a shirt w/ the entire schedule on the back with the Michigan game highlighted as the big one.
It literally made no sense to me. I kind of felt bad for them. Also, Champaign smells like cow shit. So they don't have a lot going in their favor...

I feel much better.
|5 years 5 weeks ago||This is one of the stupidest||
This is one of the stupidest lists I've ever seen. How can the Tampa Bay Rays be #6? Their fans literally invest nothing in them. Even using the ridiculous criteria, this is inane. They get around 20K people a game and when the Sox and the Yanks are in town the cheers are WAY louder for them than for the Rays.

Seriously, I am going to be all over this and everyone I know will be referring him as the Space Emperor from now on. This is happening.

An awful idea. People from Boston, unless you went there, hate BC. Their stadium is an absolute joke - they pipe extra drum music because their band is too soft to reach the other end of the stadium. Their entire fan base is comprised of lame fair weather fans.
And BC would never, ever leave Hockey East.
Just a horrible idea.

Yeah, they did it to increase liquidity since it was trading so low.
What's funny is that most stock charts show a 1 year history when you click on it initially. Do it for AIG, doesn't look outrageous... Then make it a 3 year chart. Death!
|5 years 16 weeks ago||AIG actually did a 20-1||
AIG actually did a 20-1 reverse split in June '09, so 2 years ago it was trading at like 1400ish a share.
That said, AIG is a piece of crap owned by the gov't. And your last point is spot on. Very few things are cheap anymore (at least for rational reasons)

That's one reason I like flying Southwest: if you're smart about it, you can complete a row next to a smaller person so you know there won't be any surprises coming later.
Even better is completing a row to sit next to an attractive young coed. Now that's flying!
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Hmmm, I came off as pro fat||
Hmmm, I came off as pro fat ass there. Which I most certainly am not.
I've been squished next to whales before and there is literally nothing worse than the horror of watching someone waddle down the aisle and thinking "please don't sit next to me" over and over.

Nothing in this summary is making me particularly happy. In fact, it's filling me with dread.
I'd love to see some more clarity from a team that desperately is lacking it. But again, it's only spring practice.

I just don't think it's worthwhile reading columns written by idiots. FreeP writers, Jemele Hill, etc.

The question we should be asking...
Why on earth is the OP reading Jemele Hill? There are a few people at ESPN who can write something worth reading... Not many, but a few.
She is not one of them.

Simmons has turned into an assclown. I've been reading his stuff for literally over 15 years since back when he was AOL only on Digital City Boston.
As he's progressed in his career, he's become a shell of his former self. He's turned into basically everything he used to hate: living in LA, celebrity, media whore, etc.

I can't say I appreciate being called a potential liar by our fearless leader, but the sting of that is somewhat mitigated by being quoted on the front page.
Oh fabulous day. Fame and fortune, here I come.
Seriously though, I do know a Hockey East ref and my conversation with him was a partial transcript from an email exchange we had this morning.
And great post Brian.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||+1 million if you post that||
+1 million if you post that video
|5 years 18 weeks ago||That's actually not true.||
That's actually not true. College refs all have day jobs (unlike NHL refs) He works in finance and is a smart guy.
NHL refs have to take a different track. My friend went to NHL ref camp like 6 years ago and they told him he could start down that path, except you have to go ref the minors for years traveling all over the place.
He didn't want that life. So he works 50 hours a week and refs on weekends in and around New England. It's not a bad gig.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Yeah, that's exactly what I'm||
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm trying to get across. I mean, every ref blows calls. But there is a specific point in hockey to "swallow the whistle" near the end of games and especially in OT. These refs in theory know the importance of these late game situations. That's the point of the "let them play" mentality.
So how on earth does this jackass blow this whistle so quickly? Argh. I'm getting all worked up again.

Yeah, I know. I've looked. PA is too far. Though I am going there in July, and I am for sure bringing a couple cases home.

This is hilarious. +1.
My buddy was in a very similar situation, though never blew up in his face quite so badly. He was dating a girl for like 6 years whose mom refused to acknowledge his existence. They too lived together, but somehow was able to convince her whenever she visited that they were just "dating" and didn't live together.
Your story is way better. I'm going to tell it to him and he's going to laugh and laugh.

'08 Northwestern was definitely the most miserable game I've ever sat through. I was back in Mich for a wedding Saturday night and they organized a whole bus thing for wedding guests to go back and forth from the hotel in Bloomfield to the game.
There were only 2 couples on the bus, one of whom didn't go to the game. My wife and I were the only people in like the 250 person+ wedding that went to that misery fest.
But I'm glad I did. Go Blue.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||I think the odds of him||
I think the odds of him playing in the Masters are like 95% if not higher. He is not going to miss out on majors and has almost 2 months to get ready.
I think it makes sense he didn't announce his return given he has to go back to therapy. That could be seen as a further "distraction"
|5 years 23 weeks ago||The NCAA has basically said||
The NCAA has basically said in the past that they'll never give the death penalty again. The know that what happened to SMU was too severe.
I think it would take something substantially worse than this USC business to warrant another death penalty, though hopefully some type of severe sanction will be levied.
The NCAA - completely useless and impotent since 1905.

I agree with your comment about being easier in the NFL as a whole to become a head coach as an African American.
It's just that specifically by taking the Buffalo job, I consider it a downgrade. Most NFL teams I agree it's a promotion, Buffalo... not so much.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Money is money. And yes,||
Money is money. And yes, right now it's probably more in Buffalo.
But look a few years down the road. Buffalo is TERRIBLE. Do you really think Chan Gailey and his regime is going to last there more than 3 years? I don't. So then he'll be out of a job.
But if he stayed w/ Florida, he could develop all that 5* talent they just picked up and most likely lead one of the better defenses in the country. There is no reason in 5 years of almost guaranteed success there he wouldn't get a HC opportunity.
But at the end of the day, he's an NFL guy. Been an assistant in the NFL for the last 12+ years.

Aside from Urban's potential shadiness here, how is this a good career move for Edwards?
He goes from DC at one of the best college programs in the country to one of the worst NFL teams. There's a distinct possibility the Bills won't be in Buffalo in 3-5 years. A savior of their franchise, Chan Gailey is not.
Obviously he may just prefer the NFL life to the college one...

There are over 325 players on the list. Clearly more players invited than will get drafted.
I wonder historically how many players who don't get invited to the combine end up in the league. Because there will be 100 or so guys left after the draft who went to the combine that I imagine teams will look to first as free agents.
Clearly there are pro days for guys like Stevie and Carlos Brown this year, Will Johnson last year, etc.

Write this down: M.A.R.S. That's right! Mars, bitches!

I really like Black Heart Gold Pants' take on the video:
Needless to say, I kinda wish I had read this before I started to watch...

This is exactly why Muschamp isn't exactly jumping at other opportunities. He knows he just needs to bide his time until Brown retires and he'll immediately be one of the "best coaches" in the county. Just because he'll be the coach at Texas.

Not for the 1st month of school. That's a great time to be out on the diag. The rumor is all the hot girls transfer to State after September.

How about if you kiss a girl under the arch on the Southeast side of the Diag that will be the girl you wind up marrying?

I never once stepped on the Block M as an undergrad, but as an alum, stepping on it for the 1st time was very satisfying. In an almost mystical way...
|5 years 26 weeks ago||WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!||
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Hmmmm, I know he's a great||
Hmmmm, I know he's a great recruiter and all but ND's secondary hasn't exactly been dominant. Still, he's knows the 3-4 that the Pats run. And always good to see more Michigan men playing/coaching for my NFL team. No complaints, but he has a pretty tall order developing all the young talent in their secondary.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||I think we all agree Warren||
I think we all agree Warren could have used an extra year, but at least he's not looking at a Shazor like free-fall. That was just incredibly depressing on every level.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||I always root against Peyton.||
I always root against Peyton. Starting from his Tenn days. And clearly the Colts are going to be more of a threat than the Jets. But it's hard not to root against NY teams when you're from Boston. Hence, the meteor game.
I think the Pats will be fine next year. The D will get some maturity (will be interesting to see who next DC is though)
Seymour will not be coming back. He's going for a big time contract and the Pats have zero interest in paying that.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||No no no - I'm a Pats fan.||
No no no - I'm a Pats fan. The Colts and the Jets are probably my 2 least favorite teams. That comment had nothing to do w/ the relevant Michigan players.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||Very true - I was thinking||
Very true - I was thinking less about Hart and Marlin less than Harris and Braylon simply because of who was on the field more.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||American vs British Office||
What's the general take on which is better? I started watching the Ricky Gervais version first and find the Steve Carrell version significantly worse. And I went to high school with John Krasinski...

That's an amazing line and relevant in all walks of life.

Spider Pig. Does whatever a Spider Pig does. Can he swing from a web? No he can't - he's a pig. Loooooooooooooook out! He is a Spider Pig
|5 years 27 weeks ago||Cali||
Kids in college there are freaking out about being able to graduate on time because not only did they jack up costs but they cut classes, so it's getting really hard to fulfill your requirements. The Governator really needs to turn that place around. I can't imagine getting stuck with paying for an extra semester of college because I couldn't get into a required class I needed to graduate

He definitely challenged him to a poly. Said he's been taking them ever since the book came out and passed them all. A scumbag for sure, but an honest one.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||I'm a 3rd generation Wolverine||
But to be honest, would I have had the same passion for the school from such an early age if I didn't have a football team to follow? Maybe when I got older and I could appreciate the school for the school, but there's a lot to be said for good sports teams helping to pull in kids from a young age before they care about academics.

To be able to anonymously vent about your gf/wife.

Make me feel like Larry David trying to open a hard plastic encased object. I start screaming, grunting, and jumping up and down like a monkey.

Not that Davis will be able to swing him, but you have to be impressed with the quality of talent he's been able to bring to Chapel Hill.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||Russian River Valley||
Napa/Sonoma is fun but incredibly over exposed. The Russian River Valley (west of Sonoma) is seriously fantastic. They almost never charge for tastings because they don't get the same tourist rush. Most tasting rooms have great people willing to talk to you and explain the wines, not take your 10-15 bucks and rush you out.

I think they got all excited about "angry" Spartans and decided to go the more aggressive looking route.

Has become the evil scourge of that site. Literally anything worth reading has gone behind the paywall. Used to be they would at least give free snippets of interesting stuff like recruiting. No mas...

Our wireless broke the other day while she was home sick. So she calls me to tell me and I said "did you try unplugging it and plugging it back in?"
