|1 day 11 hours ago||OH did I fucking call that.||
And unlike many other people on this board apparently, I'm quite a fan of the Packers, so I'm happy.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Odds that he re-grows his hair and the Packers draft him?||
|2 days 6 hours ago||I feel ya||
I got a "Go blue!" in California once and I turned, enthusiastically pumped my fist straight out and gave a hearty, "HAIL!"
...I do not recommend doing this in a crowded urban area.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Yeah, see||
You can pull off the all-black uniforms if your primary colors are red and black, or some similar combination.
When your colors are red and GOLD, it doesn't work. Basic design.

I did this and got lots of sex out of the deal.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Meh?||
|4 days 3 hours ago||Generalizations||
You know. "All Spartys are terrible people." "Hoke doesn't know a thing about football." "Dave Brandon is the physical embodiment of evil who never did a good thing in his life."
Actually, nevermind. It's not generalizations I dislike, it's unbridled vitriol.

|5 days 3 hours ago||2007 was a weird fucking year for all FBS||
It gets weirder every time I look back on it.
|5 days 3 hours ago||Low humidity?||
Where in the hell is it not humid in Michigan?
|5 days 10 hours ago||Kiper mocked him to NE at some point||
Which, of course, means it's never going to happen.
|5 days 14 hours ago||It makes me very happy whenever you post here, Mr. Smith.||
Love your updates.
|5 days 14 hours ago||In the 80s, my mom and dad went to a game in the Horseshoe||
They were dating at the time, my dad a lifelong Michigan fan and my mom an OSU student, and they sat in the middle of the Buckeye student section surrounded by all my mom's sorority sisters.
At some point Michigan made a good play and the student section went quiet, except for my dad, who let out an accidental yelp of joy and then looked nervously around him as everyone started staring daggers his way.
My mom yelled out to everyone around them, "HEY! This guy's a Michigan fan!" and my poor dad just got PELTED with all manner of shit. Can't imagine that was fun for him.
Thirty years of wedded bliss later...
|5 days 15 hours ago||Oh that's nothing||
I used to writhe in excitement for the annual California State-Alaska State showdown. Thrilling, it was.
|5 days 15 hours ago||East Lansing in 2013 was miserable||
High 30s and raining the whole time, plus we got pasted.
I actually ended up having a lot of fun and the Spartan fans around me were nice, but... eh. Not ideal.

I was writing a football story in 3rd grade and didn't know how many teams there were in the NCAA, so I did some quick maths. Because Michigan and Michigan State were obviously the only two programs in Michigan worth considering, I figured every other state must be the same - one flagship school and one with "state" added to it. Then I remembered that some, like Virginia Tech, didn't fit into that mold, so I added some random number to the total and came up with 116, which ironically was the exact number of schools playing Division 1-A football in 2000.
It took a very long time to shake my belief in my foolproof system after that.

GRAB LIFE BY THE BALLS.

Calling the annual night game Under the Lights makes the game easy to identify (ex: "Remember UTL against Fuckston University? That was a great game")
BUT, there doesn't need to be a huge marketing campaign branding it as UTL XXII with T-shirts and snow globes and miniaturized UTL XXII action figures.

Best case scenario (i.e under the lights), it looks like this.
|1 week 3 days ago||Nicest coach I ever had led us to a championship||
He was tough when he needed to be, but was a nice guy all-around and a fantastic coach.
|1 week 5 days ago||If you expand it to 8 and beyond||
What's even the point of playing the conference championship games, if half of the losers are still gonna get a shot at the national championship?
|1 week 5 days ago||Oh, Uncle Lloyd||
God I loved him. "Why would you ask a dumb question like that?"
|1 week 5 days ago||Except||
Except that most USC fans HATED the Carroll hiring, which is obviously amusing in retrospect. I don't remember how Saban was received, but he hadn't done too well in Miami.
Maybe Charlie Weis got this kind of attention, but I can't think of anyone else. It is remarkably unprecedented.

That became my and my parents' favorite place to go.
