yeah i was wondering that, too. i was about to ask if anyone knew of bars in barcelona that would show the notre dame game (i'll be there then), but didn't want to be the third in a row..

the one thing i like about my rivals account is the videos of practice, player quotes, etc.

|7 years 25 weeks ago||Your blog is amazingly||
Your blog is amazingly refreshing to read compared to other blogs out there -keep it up. but while you're here, I've got two questions for you:
1. How do you think your UFR will compare with Brian's (post MSU-UM game)? I'm not trying to insinuate that one is better, but rather I'm curious to see how much bias will show through from each side. While neither UFR grades out opposing players, I wonder if both sides will have more/less the same notes on the game despite the blinding fan goggles we all wear.
|7 years 25 weeks ago||yeah||
i was thinking the exact same thing, it will be very interesting to compare. Although, if I'm not mistaken, the UFRs don't really grade out opposing players...
|7 years 25 weeks ago||Indeed||
theonlycolors.com is a good blog i read daily. They modeled (and named) their UFR after Brian's and include a lot of the same metrics. Worth checking out:
MSUFR Defense at Wisconsin
MSUFR Offense at Wisconsin
Whatever you read, thanks goes to BlueSeoul for taking the time to create his own UFR.
|7 years 27 weeks ago||yeah||
i would never actually bring that up in the extremely off chance i got to chat with him. what would i expect, a high five?
|7 years 27 weeks ago||awesome||
today is my birthday and now i've got a killer ice-breaker for when i meet him.
|7 years 27 weeks ago||crazy||
i've met him, too.
|7 years 27 weeks ago||other way around||
he's only going to visit michigan, officially. he's solid
|7 years 28 weeks ago||yeah i agree||
i actually came away NOT thinking the guy was a smug 'cali-cool' asshole -in fact, i kind of liked him. are my feelings wrong?
|7 years 28 weeks ago||aw, fuck you man. no i kid,||
aw, fuck you man.
no i kid, but i do appreciate the extreme knowledge recall by the mgopatrons.
|7 years 28 weeks ago||i didn't see it, brah. you||
i didn't see it, brah. you got a link?
|7 years 29 weeks ago||i agree with one minor||
i agree with one minor quibble - the "TVs" at the table are little more than airplane chairback screens. They suck.
Also, the fans seemed less interested in the game which was fine by me as i could elbow my way closer to a decent screen.

|7 years 30 weeks ago||I just watched a video||
I just watched a video interview of Devin on Rivals (believe it's behind a paywall) after his team's loss, and I've got to say it was impressive. He was hurt with back spasms in the week leading up to, and during, the game. I couldn't tell if the pained expression on his face was from being hurt, his team's loss, or just his neutral face, but it really made me feel for the guy. The interviewer asked Devin how he would rate his own performance and he just looked back at him like he was crazy, exclaiming, "We lost. I have to improve everything." This kid really is better than you.
|7 years 31 weeks ago||it must have been brutal for||
it must have been brutal for you to have been a fan pre-RR when you say:
"I’d prefer to watch a dynamic game-breaker than an effective game-manager"
|7 years 35 weeks ago||take the bet||
or give me your buddy's info as i would be glad to
|7 years 35 weeks ago||and the second play||
i feel good about it
|7 years 37 weeks ago||ive got a strange take||
i live in NYC and have the unfortunate pleasure of meeting lots of ND folk and can honestly say i have yet to meet a decent irish fan. pompous, harks-back-to-ye-olde-days-in-yankee-esque-fashion... you know the drill.
while OSU types are a different brand of nasty, they are off plowing the field or sister or whatever they do in Ohio so i don't have much interaction with them. Also, they are largely illiterate and can't take to the internet except in hilarious broken english comments
But i do have a strange affinity for MSU. perhaps its because they contain the word 'michigan' and out here, where college sports mean zip, i find myself silently rooting for the team all my friends confuse with U of M anyway.
Beyond that, i think it's stupid to not root for the B10 as it only helps Michigan.
|7 years 41 weeks ago||i don't know if him being gay||
i don't know if him being gay is really that pertinent
|7 years 41 weeks ago||this is a larger topic but....||
do you think portions of the spread will ever work in the nfl? the 'wildcat' formation crept up here and there, but was that a one year kind of thing? i personally see it being tinkered with this year (a la pat white under parcell) and down the road.
|7 years 41 weeks ago||third try||
|7 years 41 weeks ago||yeah||
I think that he was trying to say that condemning people to hell based on their sexual preference is becoming less fashionable these days. No doubt there's a large group of people (majority?) who are not for gay-marriage, but are at least capable of an intelligent discussion on the matter and cringe at the sight of that pastor who protests military funerals out in witchita.
I don't know that i'm too worried that Riemersma will become a true 'face of the program' and scare off recruits, though...
|7 years 41 weeks ago||not to start a flame war||
but the dude is further out there than pat robertson.
|7 years 42 weeks ago||HA!||
i just had a good laugh. that was funny
|7 years 45 weeks ago||thank you, sir||
just checked it out - awesome
|7 years 45 weeks ago||recruiting||
i doubt you'd get a candid answer on this - but i'd be curious to know if the deluge of offers he's throwing out to (seemingly) everyone is a product of his time at wvu and not being able to be very selective. or perhaps its just how he does things regardless of what school's logo he's got on his shirt.
|7 years 46 weeks ago||dude...||
Your closing is annoyingly ironic...
|7 years 47 weeks ago||This kid is fast||
I just watched a video of him on rivals and he is all kinds of fast. Excellent player based on the flimsy knowledge of football I have and 30 seconds of video.
