I'm thinking he'd look a little green.

Hah! They'll be top 20, I've no doubt. I'm right there with you though.

Before this game Treadwell said about the Boise St. Recievers: "Small, we should have a good day". Hmm.
And right there, Treadwell is pushing off ever so slightly, yet when a DB does it it's a flag.

Does Spurrier even lift, bro?!
|6 hours 48 min ago||LaQuan Treadwell is an Impact||
LaQuan Treadwell is an Impact Player. First catch made just now, too. Neat.
|8 hours 51 min ago||Wow. Thought this was on||
Wow. Thought this was on ESPN. Stupid me to assume things, especially these days.
|8 hours 50 min ago||Uhhh...Sandstorm is friggin'||
Uhhh...Sandstorm is friggin' hardcore!
|1 day 3 hours ago||He said he doesn't see them||
He said he doesn't see them trying to establish run. So like, he's thinking maybe there will be more than 2 receivers on the field. And he thinks Darboh will be the 3rd or (gasp!) 4th on the field. Is it likely? No. But that's not the point and I'd guess he knows what backup means.
|1 day 3 hours ago||I always love when "wtf?"||
I always love when "wtf?" respones come from someone with an almost equal or equally interesting username!
|1 day 4 hours ago||You have good and valid||
You have good and valid point.
I would say, though, that listening to someone doesn't have to do with the color of one's skin but the tones their voice makes. And it's obvious that some people just prefer that voice to be that of a males (tones, experience, etc.). Does that qualify as sexism? I'm not quite sure though I'd lean toward no without really delving into this notion.
But if broadcasting dealt with what someone looks like and the color of one's skin did make a difference, then there lies some issues and some seeded racisim adn a whole new discussion we're never going to have here.
|1 day 23 hours ago||California is a bit hard to||
California is a bit hard to argue against! Russian River, Firestone, and The Bruery alone are...I mean, they're ridiculous. That's not even mentioning San Diego's breweries and everything else! A trip I'd like to do at some point soon is a West coast trip starting down in SD and driving North, hitting all of the amazing breweries along the way.

Drinking a Bell's Oracle as we speak. First time. Good, well crafted beer. Though Hopslam is better and sees way more distribution I'm assuming, as it seems Oracle isn't made in very big batches(?) and is a "rarer" beer, for whatever reason.
Also, Iowa should be higher. Toppling Goliath, alone, makes us an amazing beer state! My humble opinion. The pale ales, IPAs, and barrel aged stouts are all world class. Any of you coming this away in 23 years the next time Iowa plays Michigan, make a detour through Decorah, IA or find some pints hopefully available in Iowa City/Cedar Rapids.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Seriously. You're pretty||
Seriously. You're pretty effin dumb if you can't realize that.
"Geez, that beer you gave me, Two Hearted is it? I loved the sour and fruity flavors!!!"
|4 days 12 hours ago||That in fact appears to||
That in fact appears to be...a semi-colon!
Also, I like that the 2 jersey has the Nike logo that the 90's Wolverines were supported by and the newer semi-colon jersey is Adidas for the past few years. Good detail-attention.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Yep. That is what I do for||
Yep. That is what I do for the few games a year I take in. Box seats there, behind the visitors dugout, are awesome. A sunny day game at 1 or 2 in the afternoon, an expensive shitty beer in hand, feet from the opposing team's dugout (Braves in my case)...not much beats that.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Cobb County! Good move for||
Cobb County! Good move for them in your mind? Never been to a Braves game, being from the midwest, but I know all of the "issues".
|5 days 7 hours ago||When you don't research your||
When you don't research your ticket well enough and find yourself behind a beam at Wrigley Field. Son of a bitch.
Wrigley Field as a whole is a cool place. However, not in the 200s with hunks of old steel blocking the damn game.

Of course Cowherd said an 8-5 Texas team was a part of the cream of the crop.

I was going to type that as well..I decided my optimism will assume we will be.
|1 week 1 day ago||Well we knew an SEC team||
Well we had to know an SEC team wasn't coming up here so, actually not a bad mini-series. Hope that in 6 years Washington is a solid football outift.
|1 week 2 days ago||I honestly can't think of the||
I honestly can't think of the games (may have been a basketball game, but I'm thinking more football within the past 2-3 years) and it wasn't the actual loss that made me tear up. It wasn't quite a real outpour cry but I obviously had some pent up emotion and something about a loss and the effort and devotion and overall emotion that gets put into these games/kids/outcomes kind of came to a tipping point and I had to walk out to my balcony and take a few minutes to put shit together.
This happens every now and then for me when something (song, movie, moment) strikes a chord and I realize I've had some stress and emotion built up. Honestly, everyone should go have a cry every now and then (whether it's every few weeks or years) when too much life gets build up inside; it helps and for some reason helps the brain's phenomenal power put things in perspective.
*it may have been after the Louisville game after my buddy left my place. That was a touuuuuuugh loss

|1 week 3 days ago||I'm with you. The fact||
I'm with you. The fact defenders can't do anything anymore sucks. I'm on the side that what Sparty did to Notre Dame last year was legit and all of most of the PI calls were bogus. That sucks to say, becasue if they won that game...OMG. Anyway, the NFL has become a passing league becasue yes, great quarterback play, but also because defenders are called for penalties way too often yet rarely when an offensive player initiates contact are they called for it.

Good point. (And one that also helps my case in that I'm not just trying to bring Rich Rod ideologies up)
|2 weeks 2 days ago||"No question. No question.||
"No question. No question. The guys that are playing in this defense are ours. You know, I really respect the first group and the groups that we came in with. Anytime you come in and demand what we demand it’s hard, but these kids that are here now are all the ones that we brought in here. They’re the ones that we’re with every day of their lives"
I get it, really I do. However, and I realllllly am not starting a flame war in defense of RR, but the guys that weren't theirs won them a Sugar Bowl their first season adn went 11-2.

Dude should never don a Michigan jersey ever again.

It is my opinion that intercollegiate sports can exist without the insufferable N.C Double A. Wishful thinking, I understand, however cases like this are a start at putting an end to said organization.
