"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

/still has 80 minutes of podcast left
|1 day 12 hours ago||It's recorded||
Not sure when it'll be posted.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Well||
They were #89 in FEI and #80 in S&P+ last year. So he's right that they aren't #76.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Oh?||
"What are 'Google searches made unsafe by Rule 34,' Alex"
|1 day 12 hours ago||Follow-up||
Would it make a difference for the quarterback, though? If he has a better sense of who is unaccounted for, does that help him read the defense?
As an example, Gardner calls out Max Bullough as the MIKE, and in doing so knows that if Denicos Allen is coming, he's a serious dangerman?
|1 day 13 hours ago||FWIW||
The mods (and I, when I jump into the fray) are pretty pragmatic about this stuff. Some major world events will be left up; if we re-animatethe corpse of Osama Bin Laden and kill him again, that would be worth a discussion. If it involves the word "Kardashian," though, not so much.
Unless a Kardashian kills Zombie Bin Laden. I guess we would talk about that.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Depends||
Major events (Wrestlemania, etc.) are fine.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Generally||
They're usually okay. Same with Lions and Red Wings (though the calendar makes the latter a litle less important).
If the Tigers make the playoffs, there's extra leeway there too. But that, of course, depends on whether the BULLPEN GETS ITS SHIT TOGETHER.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Obligatory|
|1 day 14 hours ago||Nice||
An extensive discussion of Don.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Thing is||
You can't just take "the field" here and say someone else will surpass him. That's too easy. Which one?
|2 days 9 hours ago||Or||
The source is citing old lines that have since been pulled or modified.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Michigan is dog to Northwestern?||
Where do I place my bet? Where???
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
|2 days 10 hours ago||They bring back an experienced OL...||
...that helped lead them to a 4-8 record in Division 1-AA last year. They are not good, and they share almost nothing in common with the Jerry Moore powerhouse of the previous decade.
Michigan is a heavy favorite for a reason. Change their name to "Random West Virginia University," and there would be less than zero concern.
|2 days 14 hours ago||FWIW||
He was 17-33 for 151 yards, 4.6 YPA, 0 TDs, 0 INTs in that spring game.
He ain't Braxton Miller.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I mean||
I feel okay, seeing as neither Ace nor Brian has a punter. Someone had to defend the honor and tradition of the Big Ten...
|3 days 5 hours ago||You know what they say||
Sometimes even a broken clock finds a nut twice a day.

|3 days 8 hours ago||I kind of doubt it||
Just because the ones that don't get done are usually the losses to OSU and bowl game losses, and I doubt Brian wants to relive those excrutiating experiences for the sake of completeness.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Fun fact||
I once dislocated my shoulder raising my hand in class in high school. Casually raised hand, leaned too far backward, swung arm awkwardly to regain balance... POP.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Ya know||
I go back and forth on the TWIT stuff. Sometimes I think it was pretty funny, but sometimes I felt like I was contributing to the BuzzFeedification of the internet and the debasement of society in general. A focus on the lowest common denominator of internet life is entertaining as all balls sometimes, but I feel bad about some of the stuff I wrote.
That said, this "Titterverse" idea may have some potential. And would in NO way debase society.
|3 days 10 hours ago||I have no idea what you're talking about||
I clearly spelled it correctly

|3 days 11 hours ago||The links||
Usually those are just for content, not boards. RCMB and Bucknuts are primarily message boards.
On a related note, though, if ANYONE knows of a somewhat objective Notre Dame blog worth linking, Brian has been searching for one of those for years.
|3 days 12 hours ago||On hockey||
Adam NewHeiko is a hockey guy, so we may see some additional attention on that front.
On football, if the UFR isn't substantive enough, I don't know what to tell ya.
|3 days 12 hours ago||If anyone has any content they'd like to see||
We're all ears.
I'm bringing back Opponent Watch, starting next week with a preseason edition. But if the masses clamor for other stuff, we can make it happen.
|3 days 12 hours ago||They upgraded last year, actually||
Which was why the site didn't go down during/after 27-for-27.
(In hindsight, maybe the old servers served an important function.)
|3 days 13 hours ago||I've been meaning to||
I've never watched it front-to-back. There are chunks I haven't seen.
|3 days 13 hours ago||I want to||
I even suggested it, but the wife won't watch something called "The Killing."
|3 days 13 hours ago||I need a new Netflix show||
We've burned through all of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. I'm watching Cosmos right now, but what else should I be watching that I'm not watching?
