Had 13 in the first half, I don't think he's taken a shot in the 2nd half. I haven't seen a rebound, either.
Just now he got fouled on a drive, and missed both FTs
|1 week 3 days ago||That is really funny||
you can see he's trying to raise his hands up to cheer, but all he can do is kind of heave his arms up in the air.
|1 week 3 days ago||Terone Johnson just completely deflated||
like the end of the Toronto Raptors rollerblading mascot GIF
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I remember that game||
Pretty sure that camera guy got hit by a full cup of pop. He just went completely apeshit and actually almost hurt himself jumping down from the camera stand; he was still pretty high in the air and he had to duck under the safety bar that was on the thing. His dismount was awkward as hell. I don't know what he expected to be able to do since there was a big wall there. I want to say it was 97 because I had row 8s in 26 that year and was close enough to see much of what was going on.
The plastic shield came the very next game, I think. People still made an effort to arc stuff over the shield and hit the guy.

Hey, let's play a song you play during a 4th-quarter blowout right during one of the most tense moments of the game, great idea
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Devin Gardner got a lot better||
he wasn't doing loop-de-loops in the backfield and throwing picks into his own endzone anymore.
Lewan and Schofield had already maxed their potential pretty much, so it would be hard for them to improve.
The others...pretty much stagnated. Especially the people on defense. I expected the secondary to be much better and they were pretty bad. I expected more from Thomas Gordon especially; huge dropoff from Kovacs. Quinton Washington -- I don't even know what happened to that guy, he just didn't play at the end of the season. The CBs weren't fantastic, maybe they had little faith in their safties and played tentative. People are rightfully harping on the offense, but it wasn't a banner year on defense, either.

GERG has taught me it can always get worse.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||"Stunning" is his "tremendous"||
I think I heard him say it 3 times in one sentence yesterday
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Congrats to both||
they come from a different background than I do, and when I was in college I used to be very judgmental/competitive about that sort of stuff, but they put in the effort and 100% deserve it.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Barring a big jump from AJ Williams||
we have to pin our hopes on Khalid Hill or maybe Shallman. It'll be interesting to see their weights when the spring roster comes out. Hill was 258 and Shallman 237 (same as Butt and 3 inches shorter) at the start of last year. I doubt Paskorz plays much since he basically maxed out at 255.

giving up a record 7-spot to GBR
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Awesome, more AJ Williams||

I've already seen this. Time to flip back to CBC again.

114.34 was highest score ever. They will dominate the individual ice dance event.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||They're already admitting there are no viable alternatives||
that's why they're sending Dawson over there. This is very ominous to me regarding LTT and Fox. I guess they feel they are good enough on the interior with Glasgow/Kugler/Miller at C and Bosch/Kalis/Glasgow at G (Glasgow can play C or G). As long as Glasgow doesn't get injured, they should be fine. Maybe this means Bars is a decent option at G, who knows.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||If you oversign for expected attrition, then no||
The only problem you would run into is when the ones on the bench get pissed off and transfer; one injury to a starter leaves no one to play because there's no depth. This is the sort of thing I worry about with our OL and the haul we had in 2013; in a scenario where Bosch beats out Dawson and Kalis stays the starter, does Dawson sit on the bench for 3 years? It's not beyond the realm of possibility that he doesn't. Then you're one Bosch/Kalis injury from some lower-rated guy having to play. This isn't an issue if you oversign; you've already signed another OL for 2014 expecting the transfer to happen, and if it doesn't, oh well, give somebody a medical hardship to get down to 85.
That said, both FSU and Alabama had 3-stars fill out about 1/3rd of their starting lineups.

April 1st is the last day.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Stars don't matter in football||
They don't matter to win the Big 10 and the Rose Bowl, but they do matter to win the national title.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||The depth chart by class says||
they were right at 85 for fall 2014 before these departures, so they should be at 82 now. Room for 3 more.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I'm trying to think if there's any I don't like||
I guess ski jumping really isn't the most exciting thing ever for me. It's amazing to see them jump that far, but the actual competition itself doesn't thrill me that much.
I like everything that is timed. Bobsled, luge, skeleton, downhill skiiing, cross country skiiing, speed skating (long and short track). The judged sports like figure skating are maybe one notch below, but I'll still watch them. And I would never watch curling on CBC outside the Olympics, but something about the Olympics really raises the bar on that sport.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Where's a sports almanac from the future||
and a time machine when you need one. Damn.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I think a diary answered this a couple months ago||
I searched and can't seem to find it, but I remember reading somebody's turnover manifesto, and they had parsed out the different types of fumbles. The thing I remember most was that QB fumble rate is quite high when they are sacked, and more importantly, the defense recovery rate of a fumble from a sack is way higher than 51%. So the greatest contributor to fumble takeaways was sacks/pass rush.
EDIT: see link above
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It's a very role-playery game||
I never played D&D growing up, but it seems to follow what I view as "D&D-ish" elements, most notably encumberance. When it first happened, I was like, what is this shit, am I going to have to roll for initiative as well? Saving throws? It's just not what I was expecting ahead of time when I picked it up and it's not a common mechanic in games nowadays.
I wouldn't have a problem with it if it was more obvious what would have real value (beyond sell price). Skyrim has an absolute shit-ton of worthless items in it, way more than any game I have ever played, no question. Cups and cabbages and tomatoes and candlesticks and fuck if I know what they're used for. Maybe tomatoes are the best thing ever and I would need a ton of them for the Magic Tomato Quest in the future; I didn't know they were useless until I played through the game for a while. So I ended up picking up everything initially and it really bogged the game down.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Does this mean||
he'll stop being mentioned in completely unrelated college football games? My friends and I would do over/under on first mention of Manziel each football Saturday and it was rare to make it past the first half of the noon games. So tired of one player being Tebow-ized every year.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Thought it was pretty boring||
I have friends/relatives that played through the whole thing and mention all the different questlines and things you can do and how great it is, but I quit well before I got to any of them.
I am sort of a completionist, and in the first couple caves I would click on every nook and cranny hoping for some secret door or hidden item. I spent maybe 10 minutes fighting stuff and hours clicking on stuff, not to mention picking up every cup or bottle of wine or whatever.
Eventually it just became a game where I punched value per weight into a calculator to figure out what I should pick up and what I should leave. Every cave I would get encumbered multiple times and play musical items with the mule/helper person so I could fucking move again. I really hate encumberance -- if the item's going to encumber you, you shouldn't be able to pick it up.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I guess Harris/Mone out of the EEs||
I looked at the roster and 2013 was the 2nd year in a row that they burned 12 redshirts, which seems like a hell of a lot to me. What's a standard low number for burned redshirts? I keep thinking that eventually the depth will catch up, but Hoke seems to have no problem burning a few shirts for special teams play. So probably at least 5 shirts burned this year, despite the apparent depth. So I would guess Peppers, Harris if he heals up, Mone, one of Winovich/Wangler/Furbush will get thrown into special teams, and at least one random dude (or more) that no one would expect ahead of time.
|10 weeks 17 hours ago||Reminds of that Nebraska triple option play||
where Rex Burkhead was the option QB and he optioned to a receiver for an easy TD (the famous GIF where Mattison was talking to Hoke and just shook his head and said "I dunno WTF that was"), and at that time I immediately thought "Nebraska could have run that play for an 80-yard TD, and they chose to burn it up on 2nd and goal from the 3." Same thing here. Where was that play in the 1st half when you ran the jet sweep and it got stuffed twice in a row? You choose to burn it up on a 2-pt conversion to get you within 17 with 1:15 to go in the 4th. Really?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Wow that onside kick||
might be the most perfect onside kick I've ever seen. Kicked it on the fly to within a yard of the sideline and the Ohio guy was there all alone for the recovery.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Same||
I was the #1 seed in my league and as soon as I saw the snow in Philly, I knew I was in trouble. I got absolutely smoked like 110-55 or something.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||That 2010 Navy game was baffling||
Navy ran fullback dive over and over again and ND looked like they'd never seen a down of triple option before. Fullback had 210 yards on 26 carries that game. I remember reading NDNation after that, and the hatred for Diaco at the time was very much like some of the Borges hate this year.
