because they're so popular for football

CED was a competing technology with LaserDisk/Betamax/VHS before VHS beat everybody. My aunt had quite a few CEDs (no Airplane!, though) and we watched Star Wars and Time Bandits every time we went to her house in Pennsylvania for Easter. Good times from childhood. Nothing like getting a break halfway through a movie because you had to flip the disk over.

"Why are we introducing Jeter right before a play?"
"Oh hey, look, there goes their RB"
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm not one to get too embroiled in the transitive property||
I think the Utah/Oregon result is overblown and sort of like BYU/U-M, where things snowballed and the game got away from them. That said, Oregon has some serious issues at QB. The first knee-jerk reaction about the Oregon/MSU game was that the Oregon offense was not playing at the right tempo with the new QB, but Oregon had 82 plays on offense, which is more than average for them. I went back and watched the playoff game against FSU from last year. No comparison, really. That offense was much more in sync and the plays seemed to flow very well, one after another. It really isn't tempo, per se, but this year's offense doesn't have the same flow without Mariota.
Even then, Vernon Adams missed a wide open dude that would have won the game. MSU really hasn't shown the dominance they need to impress the committee, and I wonder if they're going to wake up and lay the smackdown on Purdue and Rutgers the next couple weeks. We all know they'll be ready on October 17th and that game will be a bloodbath.
|1 week 3 days ago||WTF TD||
Junior Hemingway still playing against VT, I guess
|1 week 3 days ago||/facepalm||
so I thought Stanford would have no problem with Oregon Regular later in the year. PAC12 makes no sense whatsoever
|1 week 3 days ago||Oh hey Stanford||
here, have a TD
|1 week 4 days ago||Non-frat here||
Chemical engineering. Having a social atmosphere and making long-lasting friends is not a small thing. I never talked to any of my former classmates after I graduated (literally everybody left the state) and I'm much better friends with classmates from high school. In general, my college experience was not a positive one.
|1 week 4 days ago||LBJ with a sack||
damn the old pres is a beast
|1 week 6 days ago||I always wondered if this is a thing OL should do||
We talk about OL that are too upright and stiff -- seems like this would be a smart thing to do to improve flexibility
|1 week 6 days ago||If they're going to do the chilling bells thing||
For Whom the Bell Tolls is much better
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||So a few things||
1. You can get to the 2nd page of the message board by right-clicking on the ">>" and opening in another tab.
2. Magnus has kept up-to-date with the scholarship situation
|2 weeks 2 days ago||At least they have to play each other||
glad MSU doesn't get to skate by without playing OSU anymore. They always make fun or us for only beating OSU once in 10 years. Well, now you get to enjoy playing them every year, assholes.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||There's the defensive/special teams TD||
backbreaker for BC
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Was Golson even trying there?||
how do you miss a dude by 2 yards on a 4-yard throw?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I don't get it||
at least throw a hail mary at the end there, don't just walk off the field
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So here's the FSU offense||
1st down -- Golson rollout that ends up being a scramble
2nd down -- Golson rollout that ends up being a scramble
3rd down -- chuck a prayer
this team is very overrated
|2 weeks 6 days ago||So traffic and rawk music||
Damn Geddes is closed for construction at the east end by the river, which screwed everything up as far as traffic was concerned because that was my main back way out of Ann Arbor. Had go up through North Campus to get out. Traffic was just bad in general. I wish MDOT would get all that stuff done by the fall, but they never do.
Rawk music definitely has slid from the rap end of the spectrum (thank god no more "started from the bottom now we're here") more toward the redneck end of the spectrum. It's OK for now, but if I start hearing fiddles and banjos, I will be upset. CCR is about the limit on the redneck scale for me.
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||We've all been there||
I'll never forget the '96 game against Boston College. Sunny and 75 when we were leaving for the game, then this huge cold front came through in the 1st quarter. Afterwards, it was mid-50s and windy with rain. I had the T-shirt, shorts, no poncho and completely froze my ass off.
The other nasty game was the infamous 5-0 Purdue game in '95 with the freezing rain. I didn't bring gloves and I couldn't feel my hands by halftime. Had to leave.
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||Saw a lot of kids completely unprepared for the weather||
T-shirts, shorts and no poncho when it's mostly cloudy, high of 65 and a chance of rain. Not a new phenomenon for kids to underdress, but I imagine many students left when it started drizzling, if not earlier.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||One of those times||
where I wish we could bring Denard and the read option back for just one game. We would have smoked this team last week if we had a mobile QB.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I find it interesting that a 300-1 upset can happen in a semi||
not a whole lot of parity in women's tennis, I guess
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Tomorrow||
Defense is Wednesday
Offense is Thursday
Every year since forever
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Bring back the 1986 pregame||
Slow down The Victors and bring back the high step. Make up for it by ditching the 2nd verse and just go straight into the opposing team's fight song.
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||Wheel of Doom||
way to GERG that up
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||Process of the catch||
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||Kicking a FG?||
Really? OSU coverted on the same situation and cashed it in for 6.
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||Have fun getting boat raced VT||
And Herbie just said laser focused -- a bullshit corporate term that makes my skin crawl
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||Who is his bling brother on the sideline||
the dude with the huge chain and the jaguar shirt
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Good choice on that option play||
-1 is better than pitching that right to the other team. VT all over that.
