I was attempting internet-irony, which is only a slightly higher degree of difficulty than the underwater flame-ring triple axel.
Back in my day, every student saw every other Pac-10 team twice in their four years and that was how we liked it.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||At no time was the score||
At no time was the score 21-7; when your 'oops I did something bad' is three types of errors on four drives, it's possible that you just aren't a very good team.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Not sure if that's universally true||
Certainly as late as the mid-1990s Minnesota felt otherwise.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Counter-argument: $25k is a lot to you or I||
Not so much to the Phil Knight Death Star. Might be one of those things where nobody feels like dealing with the legal foolishness and writes off the cost. Fishy, but not obvious-to-the-point-of-major-violations-fishy IMHO.
The real question is: did Oregon ever deal with this huckster before, and/or did they continue to do so afterwards?
|4 years 2 weeks ago||I've enjoyed watching this progress both here and at 11W||
I think some of the arguments put forth there are well reasoned and honest, but naturally I fall on this side of the line when all is said and done. I cannot see a rational NCAA* levying punishments weaker than USC.

It's a nice nod to the old logo. Tying into history is important.

D1 athletics is the only reason I know of the existence of EMU.
Not to say that that's enough to make the expendature worth it...

|4 years 9 weeks ago||well...||
My Minnesota classmates had four years of WIN FIGHT TRY Timmy B.
Your move, Michigan.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||Zounds, this is very fancy indeed.||
I was generally sans internet for a number of days - any sort of previous post regarding feature set etc? Other than a general /. feel I don't know what is going on.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||I agree||
However I would hope that every man to ever play college football feels the same way about his alma mater. It just can't drive every decision made about the program.

"Mailbag: Brian gets told of a different opinion"
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Holy god, no kidding.||
There's some reasonable distribution of labor in terms of bringing in outside blood and attempting to instill traditions. I won't claim I know what that distribution is - the new guy shouldn't be 100% responsible for digging up all these random Holy of Holies in the tradition-pile, but neither should they forego any sort of proactive research and expect to be handed a sheet of everything as soon as they walk in the door.
I wonder what that ideal distribution is, compared to what RRod experienced. I know that when I first attended either of my alma maters, older students made every effort to pass on to us what we should know, what we should do, who we should be. Given the WR#1 fiasco/nonsense, what was the situation here?
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Ask a Minnesota fan||
|4 years 12 weeks ago||Thank you for this||
Some of the comments here had me wondering if I was watching the same game. Michigan played well, UMD played better. Them's the breaks.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||cosigned||
This Minnesotan was pulling for UMD, but there's no shame in the result tonight. One team would win, which meant one had to lose. Michigan played a fine game of hockey; it ended up not being quite enough. That's how life goes sometimes.
Congratulations to both sides for getting so far in such a crazy system as the NCAA hockey tournament, and additional congratulations to UMD for being that little bit better.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||This makes me wish it was October...||
...and that M (the other M) hockey was just around the corner. Do you realize how hard it is to make a Minnesotan wish for late fall right now?
It's pretty hard.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I'm commenting on a sizable majority of their fanbase||
They're all like that.
That gif literally made my week.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||FUCKING FUCKING MUPPETS||
FUCK YOU NORTH FUCKING DAKOTA I HATE YOU MOTHERFUCKERS SO FUCKING MUCH AND I AM SUPER SUPER EXICTED THAT THE RED RIVER IS ABOUT TO FLOOD MORE THAN USUAL AND, GOD WILLING, IT WILL WIPE THE RALPH OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
MUPPETS MUPPETS MUPPETS
|4 years 13 weeks ago||We have one giant board||
And one baby one serving the very few people in the stadium who can't see the big board easily. It's nearly an open horseshoe, with the big board in the end of it.
Can't fathom the loons upthread who think that it's less than a beautiful stadium on the outside...
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Minnesota is quite similar to (spit) Texas||
Ringed with score, stats, and ads. It's still charmingly huge from anywhere in the stadium, but it's not THAT huge in practice.
That's how it looks in real-life use.

Any idiots who go to Rice Park for that (WTF!?) deserve what they get.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||re: St. Paul bars||
Stuff on Grand or Selby: fun
Stuff downtown: in my experience, not particularly fun
Stuff in mpls: well, we all know that that's the better city anyway. But don't go downtown, because downtown is dumb
|4 years 14 weeks ago||ooh ooh me me me!||
The WCHA logo thing has been there a while. 1) I go there a lot and it looks familiar. 2) Inspection of the website code suggests:
Note constant repetition of '2010'. It's a BSU/UNO-addition legacy.

I certainly care a great deal about beating North ****ing Dakota more than just every time we play them. People who root for Iowa and Wisconsin merely make bad life choices. People who root for UNfD are actually bad people. Were their program to sink into the doldrums or, god willing, fold due to lack of UMN/Wiscy money, I would dance around the grave. Because Ralph was a Nazi, etc.
I cannot overstate my hatred for North ****ing Dakota.

I was starting to wonder if your type still frequented these fair pages. The curtailing of direct service to Bolivia has not helped the world.
But thank you.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Fair enough. Well then, you||
Fair enough. Well then, you should revise your sig, or maybe move about four hours SE. It'd suit you there.
