Are you from East Lansing or tWSE?

I loathe the Yankees because of the Steinbrenners. Even though I despise their team, I think many of the recent generation (particularly Rivera, Jeter and even Torre) were great at their jobs and were genuinely good guys. They just worked for a sports figure I disliked more than any other not related to the OSU.

Well if his won/loss record embarrasses them, it's more than possible....

I'm definitely rooting for North Korea over OSU.

He might as well get an extension and/or more money out of the interest (whether or not it is real). After all, Saban, Sumlin, Fisher and Briles (at least) have already done so based on real or rumored interest.

Thanks for your thoughtful commentary. I have a very nice career, but thanks for your concern.

Sparty Troll? I gather you're new around these parts?
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I think he should be fired.||
I think he should be fired. That line of questioning had nothing to do with getting a meaningful response. It had everything to do with getting attention for the questioner. He should work for the Free Press.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I really dislike the||
I really dislike the "cultural misfit" argument, because that was one thing that I thought was terribly unfair to RR. However, other than that, I agree with everyhting you said.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I'm curious about something.||
I'm curious about something. I completely agree with your analysis about the offensive line. (I know, BOOHISS, stop the excuses, Fire Borges!!!!). But the first year, many of us, including me, thought that Mattison was a miracle worker given how much the defense improved in one year. Now, the improvement has appeared to stop or even change to a bit of regression. Do you believe that to be more a function of youth on the defensive side relative to 2011? They may have been poorly coached in 2010, but they were generally more experienced.

I'll play! Every game except MSU and the bowl game? What's the trick?

I'm old too.Some of us stood up when I was a student in Bo's heyday. And you are still bitching forty years later. I guess you still yell "Down in front!" Let the kids have some enthusiasm. Bo would think you're an ass.

So by that logic, Earvin Johnson, widely considered the greatest point guard of all time, couldn't be great because his measurables weren't great.

Well, that will dry up 97.8% of the comments on this board.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I dislike much of what||
I dislike much of what Brandon has done. A lot. But this seems absurd. I don't like him being in coaches' meetings. But if he is suggesting the direction of the play calling, I would hope that Hoke would punch him in the mouth.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I think we should quit using||
I think we should quit using the term, not because about what it says about them, but what it says about us. It makes us look small, particularly when they've beat us like a drum for the past seven years. You can talk when you win. Better yet, be above the trivial as a norm. It was a funny comment when Hart made it forever ago. It should have remained a one-time funny comment by a player after a game.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Picking Bama over Auburn||
Picking Bama over Auburn would be like giving the Lombardi trophy to the 2007 Patriots because they were clearly better than the Giants team that beat them in the Super Bowl.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Actually, they would want||
Actually, they would want Countess. If their corners were any good, they would be playing FSU.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I assume this has been||
I assume this has been mentinoned already, but I just read that Urban kept him out of the game. Maybe the first thing the guy has ever done that I respected.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Infinity is not a high enough||
Infinity is not a high enough number of fake points for that one.

I have said it before, but I think Urban's health issues were largely an advanced case of Sabanitis.

Completely agree on Delany analysis. As far as Meyer,
What Ohio gets for having a coach like Meyer = What Ohio wants in a coach

Completely disagree with you, but +1 for your awesome name anyway.

I just hope Dana Holgorsen doesn't fire him.

But the #1 meant no more at Michigan than it did anywhere else until after Anthony Carter had worn it.

I have lived in the South my entire life except for three years in high school in Michigan and four of the greatest years of my life in Ann Arbor. And I completely agree with your sentiment.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||You are right about the||
You are right about the people who travel to games. But unfortunately your hypothesis about the number of crazy Alabama fans is also correct.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed. OSU fans are more||
Agreed. OSU fans are more likely to beat you up outside their stadium, but Alabama fans are more likely to kill a fellow fan for not being fan enough. The fringe of Alabama fans are OSU fans on steroids.I spoke in an earlier post when posters talked about having good experiences with Bama fans at Bowl games, Jerry world etc. I think the Bama fans who are well off enough to go to games, etc. are better than OSU fans. It is the people who treat George Wallace (along with Bear Bryant) with reverence to this day that are the scary ones. I will say that Auburn does not have to send out warnings to fans not to wear their colors to Bryant Denny.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I am as appalled as you are||
I am as appalled as you are by the situation, believe me. The suburb of Birmingham in which it occurred is just a few miles from my home and the poor woman had three children. But ironically your post discussed many of what I believe to be the underlying reasons for this element of the Alabama fan base including anger, fear, jealousy and most of all socioeconomic status. The attitude is "I'm never going to amount to anything nor will my kids, but we still have our Tide." It's really quite sad, when you look beyond people who do genuine harm like this awful woman or even Harvey Updyke.
