Since reading Endzone, I've often wondered about how often Brian merely has his finger on the pulse of the fanbase and how often he actually helps create the dominant culture of it.
To (accurately) quote Forrest Gump i think, 'Maybe both is happening at the same time.'
It's a really unique ability and I think this article shows us why: Brian believes in his stuff. But he also believes in his ability to screw it all up for the shallow reward of fame.

So you're saying most women go into prostitution thinking, 'Hmm, should I be a teacher or a banker or a prostitute? I guess I'll pick prostitute.'
Better not think too hard about why these women have ended up selling their bodies because the answers may not be so easy to pass off as 'two consenting adults.'
By the way, what would qualify as a moral issue in your book?

Said this in a previous thread,
But I'd like to put forth a silhouette of Darboh's catch to Mr. Jordan as the new Jumpman for football logo!

+1 for well played

A foal can trot and cantor within hours of being born?
Most can gallop by the next day.
But they still prefer not to walk behind the cart.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Fun to watch again!||
Also, didn't want to start a new thread. But is there anyway to campaign Mr Jordan to use the silhouette of Darboh's catch for the new Jumpman logo on football uniforms?
The one from Ace's game summary would work a treat!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||You forgot: How important is||
You forgot: How important is it to score more points than the other team...how much emphasis do you put on trying to win the footbal game...how often do you stress to the players that they should wear their helmets with the faceguards pointing forward...

Yeah, I see what you're saying.

In Harbaugh's mouth?
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Best prediction:||
"It will look like football."
That's all that matters for me this year. Even if the record isn't as good as we hope, we will get to watch a well-coached team by a coach who is 'aware...and fully aware.

FS1 will not stream internationally, even if you login with a cable subscriber's details.
I know slingbox is the most reliable solution, but like the OP said, ESPNplayer and BTN2GO gets me the rest of the games, so buying a slingbox for this game is not my favourite solution.
Any other ideas out there or is WorldTV or firstrow our best option?

I thought the same thing!
"We have camps where we can teach kids football...but we don't tell anyone that we have them!"

Man you must have been blessed with the positivity of a dog who has just found himself completely surrounded by raw steaks and bare legs. Or maybe you have been imprisoned in a black hole for the last half decade?
What is your secret?
The rest of us have been grieving the state of this program long before we heard Jay Harbaugh's assessment of it.

Small point of fact for future reference...no advertisements on the Beeb. Mandatory TV License from each household pays for it.

I envision Harbaugh, on his first trip to Lansing, giving every team member a stake and instructing them to drive it wherever they deem most appropriate.

I don't watch Olbermann, so thanks for posting that. Wow, he didn't pull any punches. I'm still trying to wrap my head around how anyone, no matter how blinded by loyalty, could think the 409 stickers were appropriate.
I worked in an organisation whose main leader was found guilty of similar crimes. After legal proceedings, the organisation was - rightfully I believe - found innocent. But I felt sick about what happened, still feel sick and am still trying to do what little I can to help with the damage that was caused.
I guess I figure that's how most of us would respond, so the "409" response is seriously doing my nut in. I don't get it.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, I just don't get it.||
Yeah, I just don't get it. I'm a pretty balanced person who can usually see multiple sides to an issue.
I know there is lots of controversy over what may or may not have happened on campus or on the football program's watch.
But how pride can be the natural response of being found institutionally innocent in a situation like this or how an instituion feels a 'public boast' is at all an approporiate response is beyond my comprehension.
|1 year 2 days ago||Real Question||
In the vain of why does our coaching staff do so many things that don't make any sense.
Hoke has said before that he never eats before games. How much does this affect his decision making ability? Seriously. I wonder if he subconsciously knows the reward of food is there even if the reward of a win isn't. So the win doesn't matter as much.
|1 year 2 days ago||real conversation||
Nuss: Hey Coach, you know they are trying to beat us, right?
Hoke: Ummm (blank look)
Nuss: I mean, they are not just playing against themselves like we are
Hoke: Well, I was aware, but not f...
Nuss: So, they are trying to figure out what we do and exploit our weaknesses. Like this for example, now they are going up tempo on your defense

Lewis is a genius! Knock the kicker out of the game. Good strategy for Big Ten!

but I still wanna live forever I don't care!! Nothing like seeing a Big Ten advert over and over to cheer you up.

it does seem shallow at first, but I can see how it could play a part.
Sometimes when you have worked long and hard to achieve something and you realise you are not going to achieve it (insert most of the football goals the team has had for the last couple years), everything else seems to not matter either and you make stupid decisions.

What do I do now that I realise sending my 'thoughts' out to people is condescending?
I don't believe in a Supreme Being that has ordered the universe in such a way that He hears my prayers and they matter. But I strongly believed that somehow my thoughts could go out from my conscious self and settle on another person in such a way that benefited them.

Exact thoughts I had after reading the presser.
I really, really want to keep liking Hoke, but you are entering some stage of delusion when you continue to defend yourself against attacks that were never leveled at you because you cannot grasp the real issue.
It is possible to work harder and work smarter. And at this level of competition you must be able to do both.

...and that's the main reason it ain't happening. It makes sense. I can't remember the last time something surrounding the football programme happened because it made sense.
Now if you want to talk making cents...

I don't understand taking a timeout to decide if you are going to challenge. Why not just challenge if you are going to burn a timeout anyway? Am I missing something?
