I was going to type that as well..I decided my optimism will assume we will be.

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.

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

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)

"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.

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.

Same with Iowa. I feel there are more Iowa fans that Iowa St. fans, and ISU would be the more hated team. Who the hell knows.

Damn the NCAA. Eff them from keeping Mitch for ourselves for another year. Yes, I'm serious.*
*Though I damn sure hope he suceeds in life and in the NBA, regardless of him leaving Michigan so early.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Your last sentence is mostly||
Your last sentence is mostly true. I mean there's plenty audiophiles still going but that's a dying bread as the lineups are getting worse and more mainstream and untz untzy. I do give credit as they got The Cure last year, Jack White two years ago. They still get solid acts but a lot of repeats from just a couple years ago (Eminem) and some scheduling has left some to be desired.
I'm not exactly a metal guy but enjoy some good rock, which is also a seemingly dying breed. I do like Arctic Monkeys and would have seen them if I went Friday. However, to me they are still a sub-headliner. Them going on before Foo Fighters at 6 or so a few years ago was perfect for them, but I do understand how they are "blowing up". However, they wouldn't headline any other festival, yet, only at Lolla, which gets back to their lackluster lineup.
Anywho, getting back to Rock, I saw Ghost B.C last year and was impressed. By the sounds of it I probably would have enjoyed Royal Blood.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Why he's talking about||
Why he's talking about playing any low level team is part of what's wrong with college football, especially in regards to the teams from down South who rarely travel out of the region to play anyone.
Like stated above, it's Spurrier just being Spurrier in talking up an upcoming opponent.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Worst Lolla lineup ever.||
Worst Lolla lineup ever. However, I went yesterday, for Outkast primarily but also watched Temper Trap, Fitz and the Tantrums, a little Manchester Orchestra and, unfortunately Foster the People. We stayed on that side of the festival to be able to get good Outkast spots and that we did. They pretty much kicked ass. Crowd seemed pretty into it as well as I'm sure most people there really only knew the radio hits. Their hip-hop lyricism was on point though for the 90s stuff. It was all well done though and I'm glad I went.
Also did Cut Copy after show Friday night since they were opposite of Outkast last night. We were on the railing at the Vic theater for Cut Copy, feet from the band, and that show was a straight up dance party; amazing.

I guess for me, it's not even August yet; we were supposed to have them already?! Still seem right on time in my mind. Thanks for the work put in on these and for these to get sent out.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||/s?? The march toward||
The march toward destruction is already and has been underway, and it isn't being/hasn't been done by those who think some kids should be paid a little dough. It's been done by assholes who HAVE been getting paid for all the wrong reasons and have the money and ideas and power to push this thing we call College Football toward it's destruction of what we used to know.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||They wouldn't be paid for||
They wouldn't be paid for going to class, but for bringing, attention, for lack of a better word, to their University via other methods outside the classroom, on the football field or basketball court.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||So many viewpoints on all of||
So many viewpoints on all of this. I'm beginning to be in the camp of "Who gives a fuck at this point?!". It's bothered me to say that college players should be getting paid. But it really, really bothers me slick assholes in suits and orange jackets ARE getting paid...and getting paid A BOAT LOAD of money, off of said college kids and their talents and hard work.
Some say there's no money to go around from athletic departmens by the time paying for non-revenue sports is factored in. Fine. But how were they getting paid for before these huge Bowl payouts and before HUGE televison contracts?
The fact that there are people sitting in offices across the country doing little work (compared to the physical labor of athletes) yet banking off of these NCAA football and basketball players because they're a "Conference Commisioner" or are part of some theoretical Bowl Committee, pisses me off. They only exist because of what these kids are doing on the field/court...yet we can't find some of that money to acutally pay the kids. Eff that. The whole thing needs an overhaul and a lot of people need to be left jobless...or at least not making 6 and 7 figures.

I've recently gotten myself into trading....and I actually have acquired both Black Tuesday and Chocolate Rain! I cannot wait to try/drink them....except I've no idea when I will, as once they're gone, they're gone and I've no idea when I'd acquire them again.
