1 seed in Fantasy Playoffs. Lost to asshole in Round 1 (of 2) last week who had the Chiefs Defense (39 points in my league). I played Stafford instead of Romo and Michael Floyd instead of Keenan Allen. Partially my own Mangerial skills fault but srsly KC Defense, go eff yourselvs.
Also...Sticky situation. What do you guys/gals do if a member hasn't paid yet? He Could win the whole thing and has 2nd place at the least. I'm the Commish and am not quite sure how to settle this one.

We should all sit down to pee once in a while.

Didn't know they "toured". Would be a hilarious act to see.
"You know what a shit-barometer is, Bubs? Measures the shit-pressure in the air. You can feel it. Listen, Bubs. Hear that? The sounds of the whispering winds of shit. Can you hear it?... Oh, but you will, my sorry little friend, when the old shit-barometer rises, and you'll feel it too. Your ears will implode from the shit-pressure... beware my friend. Shit-winds are a comin'."

I mean, I won't argue with that. It was a frustrating season, "tackle Over" being an easy target at one point (coming out of the bye week, it working for a game and then failing). Anywho, like everything else it wasn't executed. Using said scheme and executing it may have lead to a decent outcome. Stanford says so, anyway.
So yeah I was a bit hasteful myself, above. If they practice it and can operate it for success, why the hell not?! I guess maybe I'd rather they get better at more normal and base play blocking schemes first, before using the time (like earlier in the season, it seemed) on the constraint and "trickeration" of Tackle Over.

LSU without Mettenberger is a Win for Iowa. Mark it down. Many of you make the same mistakes year in and year out assuming all these games results by looking at the names and making haste predictions. Giving any team 3 weeks to prepare is incredible and can make for some good games. (We can only hope for a 2004 Citrus Bowl replay with a hail mary toss for the win with no time left). K-state started horribly but "turned it around" late in the season. I still think they suck but can only imagine an outcome where we get big headed (as a fan that is, it'll turn around and bite us).
Anywho, a Bowl win would be a nice touch to end the season and we have a very real chance at accomplishing that (although playing a wounded Georgia team and winning that in a sexier Bowl game would be even better). Snyder will have them prepared so a W isn't a given, obviously, but I think we're far too athletic to lose this game. It's great that they get all this extra practice time though; let's hope it gets put to good use i.e. not installing more Tackle Over sh*t.

It's Houston Baptist. Not much to take away other than Stauskas' ankle looks okay and GRIII can score on un-talented teams. Go Blue, though. Nice to see 100 put up.

Yep, good points, agree with all of it.
I do like Night Fever, though! (The scene from Saturday Night Fever of the big group doing the line dance with that playing over is cinematic bliss!
Also, I'm a Kanye fiend as well. I liked Yeezus, loved it actually. There's such mixed opinions on it, though, with many who think they're hip-hop heads not liking it at all. I think there is some legitimate, I don't know, genius -hate the term for this type of discussion- to it and it's an overall great production.
|1 week 1 day ago||Phoenix is awesome. I was||
Phoenix is awesome. I was very close to seeing them in Chicago back in September but had bough Kanye tickets instead. So I haven't seen them live but they're a damn good band. I don't think Bankrupt! is necessarily as good as their previous albums (Wolfgang Amadeus, United, Alphabetical, all damn good albums) but it's good and I've listened to it quite a bit.
|1 week 1 day ago||If many of these songs are||
If many of these songs are forgotten about a couple years later, how long can iconic songs of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s carry on before they slip into irrelevancy, lost on the ears to future generations?
I think history/the future? will show that the GOOD stuff of today and through the past decade/15 years, will survive as did and will continue to, the classics of the 50s/60s/70s. I think there's so much sh*t being put out there now a days, that's what the radio decides to play, and the masses eat it up. The massess will eat anything up...See the fucking Fox Song. But the people who truly enjoy music and look to it for deeper reasons than "dat beat, man" know whats good and will allow the actual good stuff being generated by actual good talent, to prosper and see it go down in history as the good stuff of 20, 30, and 40 years ago. I don't see that stuff being forgotten about for a long time (there's just too much greatness to it, not that there's not greatness now but there's much, much more shit to wade through to find it).

New Arctic Monkeys, AM. I really, really like this album, I'm not sure why so much, but I do.
Savages. Ever heard of 'em? Check 'em out.
New Arcade Fire - Reflektor. Not sure your take on AF but this album is...something to check out?! It's okay. It's not great nor very good, but, good-ish?!
Once again, nothing new on the hip-hop front for me

Only one thing changing would have made that basketball game any better last April, an obvious Michigan win. Such a great game to watch and is one of the better played basketball games played in a long time. Michigan winning would have been a-maz-ing. Like said above, 8-4 isn't much even with one of those against an undefeated Ohio State.

I know, former players are never wrong or have an opinion that maybe isn't 100% correct. Dude, in a vacuum our LB is fine. Why is it hard to understand the lack of good and consistent DL play would affect the LB play? Their flow, their reads, their timing, etc. All important things for a LB. It all starts up front, offense and defense.

Wouldn't say we're playing like shit guys. Rusty, sure but I've seen plenty to be happy about, 2 calls that led to points for Duke Not being it (just to keep the score in perspective). Make some shots and we're fine.

I think I agree about Walton. I hope Beilein is ready to out Spike in at the first moment of skepticism; not that one small error should have him pulled, but if there's a sign that it's too big a moment, Spike should be on-call early on.
I hate to pile on this particular guy, but I'm hoping it's not too big a moment for GRIII. Good play from him would be a very welcoming and reason for hope for him.
|1 week 2 days ago||Umm this is a DL issue,||
Umm this is a DL issue, Marcus Ray should no this. It's that simple. Are our LB's world beaters? No, I mean Jake Ryan might be, but they're pretty damn good (and that's with JRIII not even playing...a small-ish yet very athletic LB).
|1 week 2 days ago||Awesome. He'll have plenty||
Awesome. He'll have plenty of time to get it fully healthy in the coming weeks, what with only 1 game a week. I mean, if it gets bad tonight, don't risk anything. But if he's good to go, he's good to go.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yea Kenpom only by 2?||
Yea Kenpom only by 2? Essentially Michigan would be favored by 1 @ home with these guys? No way.
Hairston I'm waiting to see have some break out game out of no where after he's been quiet. Parker is Parker is really, really good. He'll get his. Will he get his and Moar, though, with GRIII playing him? I'm a bit pesimistic, Jabari could in my eyes put up 30+ tonight.
Good news that Stauskas is looking well. Without him there's no chance. With him, there's a slight, slight...no, there's no chance we can beat these guys @ Cameron Indoor. I'm cynical, sue me. Prove me wrong Wolverines, and I'll eat those words. I'd be comfotable coming away with a 10-12 point loss though and seeing some flashes of brilliance, especially if Michigan claws it's way back a few times only to see the last few minutes get away from them. That woul be admirable for our own young team and a lot will be able to be taken away for more learning purposes (those get old, don't they).

I'm such a fashion-ista that I'm able to buy clothes/shoes for my gf/future wifey. It's a bit weird at times when I realize that I'm in the huge minority of males who can do so and not screw up royaly, but it helps in that I can always fall back and find something when nothing else comes to mind for gifts.

I love the fact that some people walked out of there with ash all over their legs wondering WTF happened. I can see somebody dumping them in the middle of the sea of fans post victory.
|1 week 3 days ago||I agree. I'm not sure why||
I agree. I'm not sure why they weren't pressuring more, for example. I don't think your defensive coaching is as dire as you write but I agree about the gameplan and preparation. Borges did call a very good game but I think Ohio wasn't very disciplined which goes to coaching like you say.
