|17 hours 50 min ago||Even if tha's true||
(and Nebraska didn't look like world-beaters in their first three games), if the argument is that Nebraska can be players when they have a 4-year-starting senior under center, that doesn't tell me much other than that they can occasionally jump up with the elites.

But you have to fit your foot into the USB port

Clemson kicks a field goal in their possession. Ohio State throws a pick-six. And Clemson insists on going for two.
|18 hours 32 min ago||Sure, it's possible||
But they have lost at least 4 games every year for the last 10 years. Their coach probably won't be there in a couple of years. They certainly have the potential, but they aren't trending in a super-positive direction.

That some people are just too far into Bolivia to be extracted by traditional means. However, if a good-faith effort is made, we shall consider your pleas.

Mediocrity is a long way off. Can you see it way out there, Tim?
Tim can't see it way out there.

I mean, doesn't EVERYONE do the thing where if your rival school is Such-and-Such State, you just drop the "State" part to demean them? No?
|19 hours 27 min ago||No||
No, Col. Sanders. You're wrong.
|19 hours 30 min ago||Thanks||
But alas, if my snark drops below 50 MPH, the bus will explode.
|20 hours 31 min ago||I dunno||
I hadn't thought that far ahead. I was thinking about taking a few weeks to backpack through Europe, and just kinda exist in the world for a bit. Just LIVE, ya know?

No one knows if it is a funny.

For obvious reasons

It insists upon itself.

The continuing saga continues. Not much else going on. I'm cool with it.

You can't hear this, because that's not how the internet works, but I just sighed the loudest sigh of all the sighs that have ever been sighed.

And if your algorith says "if Michigan wins 9 games in '14 and 10 games in '15, Brady Hoke will be fired," you need to look a little harder.

KLS and Cornell are both WDEs, and the coaches are going full-bore at Cornell as Plan 1A.

It's a circular thing. We take down all the Drew Shar stuff, but then no one sees people shouting "HEY, NO DREW SHARp"
|4 days 10 hours ago||You missed the broader message||
And I quote: "...if the people who write for this site hate you we will ban you."
Being antagonistic, EVEN IF YOU'RE RIGHT, is a shitty thing to do. THAT is what Brian has been getting at recently. So, don't do that.

Did people learn NOTHING from the whole State of the Site post the other day?
THIS DOES NOT CALL FOR NAME-CALLING DEBATE. KNOCK IT OFF.

JGB, LSA, and I ban way, WAY more people than Brian does. It's just that most of the people we nuke are newer members who get banned for more obvious offenses. Some guys are tougher calls that I'd defer to Brian. Take, for example, Section 1. He's a smart, articulate guy who doesn't go around calling people crap-tards. He generally doesn't break the rules. But all he does is get into debates. I wouldn't ban him, but if Brian banished him I wouldn't cry.
As for banning dissenting opinions, I'd look at it like a baseball manager arguing with an umpire. You get a certain amount of leeway, especially when the ump has an inkling that he was wrong. But at a certain point, when you've had your full say, and the ump says "that's enough," that's gotta be enough. Some people are incapable of going back to the dugout, and are therefore ejected. Besides, there has been a lot of dissent and very few bannings beyond the usual trolls.
M-W offered some great contributions. But you don't get judged by the best things you do, you get judged by the worst things you do. And in this case, I understand Brian's decision.
