|16 weeks 4 days ago||I have no issue with being called out.||
I have a thick enough skin to have started that thread expecting to get destroyed, so people disagreeing with me is no problem.
My response on Peppers in real time was based on the likelihood of him winning more than his worth. Heisman voters are going to pick a QB with gaudy stats unless Jabrill has huge games against MSU, Iowa, and OSU. His talent is absolutely worthy of being in the discussion, but he needs the stats to actually have a shot at getting to NY and winning.
I've read Bacon's stuff on Harbaugh. I also think that if you had asked anyone 5 years ago, when Brady Hoke was taking the podium of his press conference, if Harbaugh would ever be on the sidelines in Ann Arbor, a lot of people likely would've said "Never gonna happen." So it's hard for me to answer that question in absolutes because a lot of things can change in 5, 6, or 7 years. Maybe it's a defense mechanism from the last 8 years, but I just can't tell myself there is a 100% chance he's still our coach in 10 years.
I don't think I was telling the RCMB crowd what they wanted to hear, but I can definitely see why people would take it that way.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Why do you continue to mangle my words?||
Taking what I said, altering it to fit your narrative, and bashing me for things I didn't say makes you sound like a fake fan, bro.
Re: Peppers for Heisman -- I said I didn't think his name being in the top 3 right now was justified. I said he's an extremely exciting player who can get a touchdown any time he touches the ball, but doesn't have the stats right now to be in the Heisman discussion. This has nothing to do with NFL stock or how great of a player he is, it has to do with the fact the Heisman is pretty much awarded to people based on stats. I've told other friends his Heisman campaign will be decided in the MSU, Iowa, and OSU games. A few touchdowns and some major defensive plays would absolutely put him in the discussion. TODAY though, I don't see the stats to say he's in a legit discussion with Lamar Jackson. That's very different from, "Peppers is not worthy of the Heisman."
Re: Harbaugh to the NFL -- I said he COULD go back, depending what happened at Michigan. I also said I didn't see it happening unless he won big first. If you don't think losing to his brother in the Super Bowl, having his nemesis (Pete Carroll) have college and NFL titles, and getting fired from the 49ers stings somebody as competitive as Harbaugh, that's fine. I think if he wins a title this year and maybe again in 2018 or 2019, he MIGHT get the itch to correct that failed chapter. He's not thinking about it now and it's not happening soon, but I'm not a fake fan because I believe it COULD happen at some point. That's very different from "he is going back to the NFL."

At least nobody has found my Reddit posts talking about how much I like Jennifer Lawrence's butt hole.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||This guy definitely sounds like a fake fan.||
We need to find him and sternly tell him his opinions are wrong and his humor is flat!

I created this image and uploaded it to ImageShack in July of 2012. It still applies today.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||I'd suggest hoping the flight is oversold..||
Give up your seat, get some bonus miles/tickets, and watch the game at a restaurant. Or maybe "miss" the flight and fly standby on the next one.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I didn't either..||
And didn't catch the sarcasm or I wouldn't have self-linked an ancient thread. Ooops.. Guess my eyes are still strained from squinting closely to see on the depth chart if any of the players with ORs between them were slightly bolded/italicized to indicate true starter.

Here's a link to an old thread here with some classic images. The winner, I think, was a great one by Bombadil (4th or 5th post down) showing the similirities with the Eminem pic.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Some restaurant suggestions||
As noted a couple times above, Red Iguana is fantastic Mexican food and the jalapeno margarita is great. I'd also highly recommend Takashi for sushi. You might think I'm crazy recommending a sushi place in the middle of Utah, but it is honestly some of the best sushi I've had anywhere. There is also a bar right next door (or used to be a couple years ago when I was last there) that you can wait for your table and have a couple drinks. Even co-workers who would travel in from Seattle would make it a required stop after I took them there. If you're more in the burger mood, Squatters is a solid choice. I'd recommend going to the one up on the way to Park City though, it has a cool view depending where you sit and that mountain vibe.
If you hit up Park City, make sure to check out the Banksy art on the side of Java Cow too. Even if you're not a fan, it's cool to see something like that in person.
If you're drinking in a restaurant too, I'd recommend sticking to beer or wine. All of the restaurants use the single-ounce measuring attachment on the bottles, so a vodka tonic is a lot more tonic than you'd probably be expecting.

I assume it was dental students who lured this majestic bird over near their school and promptly captured it for the fame? When will these glory seeking b*****ds learn? And if this post makes me an anti-Dentite, so be it.

|1 year 48 weeks ago||Calculation based on Peppers...||
Number of times you thought player is awesome while on team = 400.
Will be awesome on team times 0.5 = 730 * 0.5 = 365.
Awesome pro career = 10 years * 365 / 30 = 121.7
Result of addition (not specified?) divided by people wearing jersey = 886.7 / 20 = 44.3.
I live in Ann Arbor so multiplying 44.3 by 50% fans = 22.15.
Subtract percentage for each year over 14 = 22 - 22.15 = DO NOT WEAR JERSEY

I hope Miller ends up being as successful as Nacho Man some day, with a prestigious grad degree, major property holdings in Ann Arbor, and a low body fat percentage.

Is there a loophole in the Google policy for sexybits that are not blatantly sexybits to the eyes, but could potentially be sexybits to the imagination of somebody like Jacobear?

|2 years 8 weeks ago||Somebody already did this...||
I was at the Indiana game with a buddy and there was somebody about 20 rows in front of us dressed in the game gear, headset and all. Everyone was cheering at him as he walked up the steps at halftime to presumably get a free hot dog.

All this additional traffic was too much for the old computer. Whenever I think of the edge of the internet board, it will remind me of my days hosting a BBS.

Brian references a lot of stuff from the end of the internet, but why do they reference him as Funky?

To make a Harbaugh joke.

If I take the following sentences:
And the sources are me talking to myself and my interpretation of the hand gestures just made by the peek-a-boo bear.
But a rumor is a rumor so there must be some truth to it.
And then I rearrange the letters using an algorithm I came up with after drinking assorted beers brewed near San Francisco, I find the hidden statement:
Harbaugh rumor is true and the sources are not me talking to myself. Peek-a-boo bye.
It really is happening.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Yes, I concur...||
In hindsight, more subtle grave dancing is in order. My attempt was a little too in your face...
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Interesting...||
Schlissel said Brandon decided to resign and he accepted it. I wonder how it would go if I went to my boss, said I wanted to resign my duties, and asked for $600k+ per year for the next four years?
|2 years 16 weeks ago||It's far away and all, but ....||
Edit: too soon apparently.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Who's taking the first shift?||
I think everyone here needs to start taking shifts to guard WD's house for the next year. I have a feeling a drunk Dave Brandon might show up at some point looking for him...

Doesn't really count since I wasn't there, but a friend of mine did one of the crazier things I've heard of one night we were all out. Here's a quick recap:
It was a cool Fall evening after a nice win over Michigan State in East Lansing ....... (intended pause to soak in the nostalgia and remember what those days felt like) ....... My roommates and I had gone over to a friend's house and were drinking all afternoon with another friend who had driven over with a buddy he had visiting from high school.
We got up to leave after the game and when we started walking home, the other kid realized his car was gone. He had put it at a meter, didn't remember or care enough to go back out and put money in. Apparently he did that pretty often because he had a large number of unpaid parking tickets that resulted in him getting towed. He was pissed, we laughed at him, and then went our separate ways.
Fast-forward to 3:30am when one of our phones starts ringing. My roomate answers, says "WTF? Huh? Where? Ok", hangs up, and then tells us we have to go to the police station. After a long evening at the bar bitching about the towing, my friend decided the best idea was to go to the tow lot, climb the fence through the barbed wire, and take his car back.
He always claimed they cut the lock, got the gate open, and drove away, eventually having a cop pull them over because the tow company called it in, thus arresting him for stealing his own car. I don't buy that part though because he would've been hit with DUI for sure and been in a lot more trouble, but last I talked to him years ago he stuck to it. I personally believe he got arrested while in the tow lot trying to figure out how to get his car out, but that isn't quite as good of a story.
