He's always ripping "homers", but complained about the officiating in the 40th Super Bowl for years afterwards. Aw, did your homestate Seahawks get the short end, Colin? Man-up.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Easy explanation.||
20 years from now ...
Football fan: You played college football! Where?
UAB recruit: <loud>UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA ... <quiet>birmingham.
Football fan: Good for you; let me buy you a drink.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Wait,||
what if everyone here is WD except me?
This is getting wierd ...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Not really.||
Rosenberg gets paid for clicks on the site that employs him; avoiding his site avoids paying him to write his bullshit. If enough people avoid his work, Rosenberg might redirect his life in a direction more beneficial to mankind than trolling the fanbase of his alma mater.

It's the only one west of the Mississippi River.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||True,||
but a 360 cm tall receiver would be comfortably within the expected range for tacopants, and would create matchup problems for any DB under 10 feet tall.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, Steve's Lunch!||
Best breakfast, ever.
And, if the Pretzel Bell is comnig back, can the Village Bell be far behind?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||But,||
if he stays four years, he should be in Ann Arbor twice.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Hmmmmm,||
I hate to think what I would have sounded like in the middle of my Senior year of High School on National TV.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Tonight?||
It's still Saturday, Pittsburgh plays at Cinci tonight.
Seattle at Minnesota kicks off noon-ish CST Sunday (tomorrow).
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Cook?||
|4 weeks 2 days ago||KC, Pgh, Minn, Wash||
Chiefs are rolling.
AFC matchups OVER.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||You make some good points.||
Since players are generally larger than when the two decimal digit standard was imposed; perhaps we're ready to move to three digit numbers. Perhaps Mr O'Korn would like #555.
Or, perhaps we're ready to advance to hexadecimal: #A5 for you, Mr O'Korn?
I could support either of these proposals, but together they seem to be overkill. Of course, the combination would have allowed Ruddock to wear #DAD.

It's hard to imagine anyone appoaching the level of douchebagness which is Charlie Weis.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Well,||
ESPN has been accuracy-challenged for its entire history; this was overlooked in its early days when it was run on a skimpy budget and the relative handful of talking heads were on for 12 hours at a stretch.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Expectations||
Expectations can be a terrible burden.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||What GM,||
would want to hire Chip Kelly, after the experience in Philadelphia?
From genius to unemployed in 16 weeks, wow.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Did you ever know||
a troll who waited for an invitation? Generally, they just show up, invited or not.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Odd?||
Personally, I find Indiana University of Pennsylvania odd, but I guess my beef is with those who named Indiana, PA.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Who?||
Who has it better than us?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||And,||
Alum96 types upper and lower case; avoids ellipses ...
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Which is surprising,||
because he had such a great week of practice.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Infamous AD vote of 1973||
I know it was nearly sixty years after your death, Dr. Angell, but cumong man!
|10 weeks 6 days ago||1989 : yes.||
2015: not so much.
|11 weeks 16 hours ago||Second key to happiness:||
Avoid double posts.
|11 weeks 16 hours ago||One key to happiness:||
Not being stressed about things over which one has no control.
|11 weeks 16 hours ago||Now I understand.||
A photographer with a huge lens was on the field during timeouts in the first half. I thought he was taking pictures of the various senior day recognitions (dancers, etc), but he was taking individual shots to stitch together to make this panoramic picture.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Great writeup.||
I grew up in Pennsylvania, have been to State College a dozen times, but yesterday was the my first gameday experience. My wife and I were wearing maize and blue and _every_ interaction we had with PSU fans was positive. There was grumbling about some PI calls (wtf, every call should go your way?), but fans will be fans. I had several Penn State fans tell me to crush Ohio State next week (of course, I was telling them we'd be rooting for them next week).
Ice Cream from the Creamery on campus is delicious, and we met the Glascow brothers' grandparents there! All in all, a fun trip.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Same here.||
I thought OSU -13 was a little high, but I'd have bet the farm on OSU -9.5; and that was when I thought Cook would start albeit banged-up. Saved myself a bundle by not being able to bet.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Hmmmmm,||
looks like you're the fourth person to pick UMich 38-24.
