|5 weeks 6 days ago||You mean||
I think they're on top of it.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||It's||
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Pix?||
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I always thought||
that was from the 2009 OSU-USC game. I felt a little like this after the Iowa game this year. Maybe more irritated.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Someone needs to be there||
to step in to keep student athletes from being forced to go to Rome, Italy on their spring break.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Tsar||
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I live in ATL as well||
and I'm not at all sure what I want to happen. I've been pulling for Brady every year; the Falcons making a real go of things makes it complicated.
I do know there is a waitress at the Moonshadow on Lawrenceville Highway who is pulling publicly and without fear for the Pats; I think she will be there for the game.
Any year there is no Dallas is above average as far as I am concerned.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I just logged in||
to post a comment on the irony of the word "hypocrisy" occurring in the same sentence with the word "Freep" without directly modifying the word "Freep."
This looks as good a place as any. I will return to my day now.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Always loathed him.||
Starting probably with his opportunistic-sounding cheerleading for the Dark Side in the 1984 OSU game. OSU was still coasting on the media darling status earned between '52 and '68, and Musberger was all into it. I was sick of it by then.
Flash forward to his 2006-era promotion (during the USC-UCLA game, which USC inconveniently lost then and there) of a re-match of UM's 47-21 bashing of ND: would be "a great game." (Part of the E-SEC-SPN narrative that an OSU-UM MNC rematch, or anything nice for UM, was impermissable.)
To me, a shameless huckster and peddler of BS narratives. And always ready to stab UM in the back. Never forget.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Still miss BattleZone.||
|17 weeks 1 day ago||A friend once told me||
that bright ideas happen more quickly if they start with the words "Is it allright if I do this" than they do if they start with the words "I think you should do this".
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Please don't tell me||
you miss the days when more people knew who the AD was than knew who the football HC was.
Although you could get home tickets for the price of two glasses of Coke product.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Respectively disagree.||
Changes always happen more quickly when they are accellerated by a shitstorm of voluminously and forcefully expressed public outrage.
Harry Belefonte tells a story of an A. Phillip Randolph visit to the FDR White House. FDR listened to APR list a litany of demands over dinner, and then told him: "I agree with every one. Now you need to organize and FORCE me to do it."
Leaders go where they think the public is going (unless they are affirmatively evil). But they need to be reminded.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah,||
and so do touchdowns, completed passes, successful defensive calls, and so on.
The argument here is that faithless reffing is one of those difference-makers here, and apparently our folks don't like that.
What is your point?
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Faithless referees||
also destroy mistake-free games as well.
Ohio State made mistakes as well. Not every team that made mistakes in that game could lose. Both teams made mistakes. Neither team deserves to lose solely on that basis.
The argument here is that unforgiveable referee malfeasance changed the outcome of the game. Mistakes have nothing to do with it.
Unless you want to argue that the only way you deserve to win at all is to win 78-0.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I'm still waiting||
for an Mgoforensic review of the Lantry FG attempt v. OSU in '74. I think that one was more consequential.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||So you want||
to get rid of the scent of corruption and favoritism:
Let the NCAA handle it. (They handled the UM-Louisville bb final, didn't they?). That should "fix" things.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||This thread||
is political and potentially incendiary, and getting involved to balance the feedback is risky. Upvotes to you.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Do you mean||
(late) 1800s technology?
|18 weeks 2 days ago||First Rose Bowl||
was a victory over Stanford 49-0.
U-Chi was a regular-season rival.
I have to admit I am not as fond of the Rose Bowl as others are. M was undefeated there from 1902-1965, but starting with Bo's first season in '69-'70, the Rose Bowl was a fairly dependably sour note to end the season nearly every damn time we went. I'm happy not to dwell on that particular part of our recent history.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Some more of these . . .|

Increasing labor expense 1000% will raise the retail less than 10%.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Conjugate||
the same way as "fart."
|19 weeks 6 days ago||People seem to shit on you||
no matter what.
It seemed to start with the Brandon email. Things got very intense then and a lot of people called for your head of which but a few publicly apologized afterword. This was the climactic moment of a very dark era with hints of strange and twisted loyalties which may never be fully explained.
You must have hit a nerve then that never quit buzzing for some folk. Your life appears to be fine nonetheless, you have my respect. No further comment.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Idk why,||
but after reading
I had to sign on just to upvote. Maybe because I sense a kindred spirit.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Just because||
the corrupted, ethically-challenged and utterly faithless NCAA counts them doesn't mean we have to. I mean, this is your own metric, isn't it? Why not just include the condition "wins involving collaboration with and enablement of pederasty are automatically vacated?"
If you take off about 10 wins for every season from when Paterno started suppressing evidence of pederasty and rape in 1976 to when he was dismissed, I think PSU drops safely off the list.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||According to the press conference,||
the 2-pointer was on call in each of the four first scoring possessions, the the fourth one was the first time the D setup was favorable for the attempt.
After that, Harbaugh took the 2-point option out of the call for the rest of the game -- in order to spare tender sensibilities.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||It was||
That was the year the Ohio State faculty senate turned down the Rose Bowl invitation, and Minnesota went two years in a row while the Pac-8 and the Big 10 continued to play without a Rose Bowl contract in effect.
Only two OSU players were kept off the field by injuries in 1961. That year was an encapsulation of Woody's best and worst tendencies.
