"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

This is a fallacy. Doing nothing is in fact a choice. So if they don't call an obvious, blatant penalty, that's also dictating the outcome of games.
|8 hours 18 min ago||It was a blown coverage,||
It was a blown coverage, which makes the blatant downfield block and obvious pass interference that much worse. FSU wouldn't have stopped the play if ND didn't commit pass interference. But they did, because they're morons. The end.

Somewhere, Spencer Hall just burst out laughing hysterically and he doesn't know why.

Well, he's promised CSG they'll be lowered. Of course two key caveats:
1) He's a weasel making a handshake agreement.
2) They promised hockey prices would be lowered, then lowered the number of home games so students were paying more on a per game basis.

Which was a high response rate if you're familiar with these things. 1 in 8 people? Marketers would kill for that.

Met him briefly at the Fire Brandon thing. He was, like Brian, kind of dumbstruck that people expected him to speak.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Do they expect any actual||
Do they expect any actual news? I suspect it will be tremendously boring with a few of the more political members to maybe do some grandstanding if they're interesting in moving to higher office eventually. With maybe a 6-2 "expressing concern about the direction of the athletic department" or something similarly phrased.

The only positive thing you can say about that timeout is that it wasn't the dumbest timeout called in the game. Silver linings, everybody.
|5 days 16 hours ago||I love that our image of our||
I love that our image of our basketball coach makes the opening of this a perfect metaphor. I'm sure he's out working hard doing basketball things all the time and not actually just tending to his garden and teaching chemistry on the side, but it feels like he's doing the latter two.

Went with the larger sample size. I still have hope*!
*Well, mostly that he'll never see another meaningful snap and I won't have to find out.

Covington was really bad in relief Saturday. Like, Bellomy vs. Nebraska bad. Wilson's a good coach and will get him at least competent eventually, but in two weeks, one of which will be Sparty beating his brains in? Rough.
|1 week 6 hours ago||Timeout is fine at 20 seconds||
Timeout is fine at 20 seconds left when that play ends because it removes the possibility of the hail mary. It makes them punt, maybe you can block it (we were getting kind of close) and grab some much needed points before the half. Only risk is a Norfleet muff. And you can avoid that by not having a returner back there at all.
Calling it at 3 seconds removes almost all risk from PSU's perspective (only a strip sack returned for TD is really a potential problem) while greatly increasing yours.

1) ESPN is terrible
2) You're shocked this coaching staff isn't 100% honest about injuries? It's what they do. It's incredibly fucking stupid, but it's what they do.

Once again the season has broken Brian to the point where he's predicting normal scores.
|1 week 3 days ago||No Copp, Compher, or Downing||
No Copp, Compher, or Downing though, right? That's a lot of leadership/firepower. Also it was 4-0 in an exhibition game, so whatever.

Used to be, easily. The rest of college hockey got the NCAA to ban us from hosting tournament games.

I like that we're doing this. We were not going to the front of the net last year at all. It hurt. I mean you don't want to take penalties, but I like the approach a lot.

1) Hire a good football coach
2) Don't actively try to piss everyone off
I think that really about sums it up.

If everything is awesome, nothing is. Him and Doc Emrick drive me nuts.

They fixed it to be more correct in the online version now. Hooray!

Cut administrator salaries back to normal and we don't need any of that other bullshit and can pay 8 million (or whatever) for Jim.

Dude, don't do that. It's incredibly rude.
|1 week 5 days ago||One of the things about||
One of the things about public pressure is that it has to keep happening or people forget about it. I do think boycotting a game (or a start) is a strong step, too much of one at this point though.
|1 week 5 days ago||Feel like there should be||
Feel like there should be some way to support the players by showing up while making a statement about Brandon. I'd say something like turning your back to the field during halftime, but I like the band too much to do that to them.

More likely scenarios:
Zombie Eugene Debs wins the 2016 Presidential election
Nintendo's next console has no gimmick and is just focused on impressive graphical power
Hollywood goes a year without releasing a sequel or remake
Peace in the Middle East
The Lions win the Super Bowl

Zach played Saturday night. He's the starter. Red tends to let the backup play the third in these exhibitions. Sometimes he'll throw a walk on in there and last year or the year before it cost us the game.
