|1 week 6 days ago||Obviously I could google this||
but I like to live in a hipster world where it's gauche to just google everything, so....didn't Amari Cooper go just two years ago?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That's the joke||
"Someone should let him know what it really means"
That's the joke (McBain gif)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It's actually not that sketchy||
It's actually not that sketchy anymore, it's more that it's just not exactly the California dream either. It's in the middle of a bunch of auto dealerships and light industrial-type stuff. It'd be like if you took a beautiful self-contained campus and dropped it out Jackson road.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Warming||
Goddammit global warming can't get here fast enough.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||So does||
So does MICH have dwumfour him in this class then?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||An average what of 55?||
An average WHAT of 55? Not all stats are weighted equally, you don't just average every ranking out for every stat to get a "final" ranking.
This sounds really well analyzed.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Also so||
Also so you can sneak up on people and plow into them without them ever hearing you coming.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||"Only game"||
Against Oregon St and BYU he had at elast 125 yards and 5.5 yards a carry. And three other games at at least 4.8 yards a carry. And often during the "not good Rudock" games.
Those are solid feature back stats. Yes he's up and down (especially when injured) but to suggest there is no other evidence beyond the Citrus Bowl that he can be very solid is willfully blind.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, and that's not good||
Yeah, I see him in that range, and frankly that's not good for him, he'd be better off going as a free agent to the team of his choosing. But man, I really think you could do a lot worse than have Rudock as your 3rd and maybe 2nd string QB. Jimmy Clausen was playing in NFL games this year, fergodsakes.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Rape case||
And also may or may not have contacted a rape victim hostess, may or may not have watched a cell phone video of said rape, may or may not have told a player to delete video of said rape, and definitely had some sketchy involvement with the whole situation.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Actually bad||
That was actually pretty bad clock management on the last drive by TCU. They should've had another timeout and should've run the ball on 3rd down to get 1st and goal
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Packaging||
Well, they can't all get into the School of Making Boxes, it's one the of the finest in the country.
|7 weeks 3 hours ago||Also Cam Newton,||
Also Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Tyrod Taylor, Derek Carr, Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel, Alex Smith...
Keep dying on that hill, though.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Wow||
you seem totally awesome, just waiting to whip out your e-peen about analyzing flight conditions. You really showed that poster up.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Henry bias||
I mean, to be fair, Derrick Henry IS the leading rusher in the country, with the most touchdowns.
That's not the end-all be-all, but it's kind of hard to argue bias like he's not deserving.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Ferentz gamble||
I'd say Iowa has lost that gamble. They will have this one flash in the pan to go with the one in like 2001 or whatever, and then still be stuck with Ferentz for another 5 years of mediocrity after this.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Maps are flat||
Maps of the Earth are flat.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||You thought you'd clear it up||
You thought YOU'D be the one to clear it up, 24 hours after Wolverine Historian cleared it up in the game write-up post, and numerous people mentioned it in the original message board post claiming the stat?
How humble of you to do the work and take credit.

Yale will always be number 1 in gentlemanly club life.
|11 weeks 10 hours ago||"how can one not be aware"||
What? Respectfully, maybe you've had personal experience, but "too cloistered"? The long-term effects of a stroke seem like a very technical area that I would imagine most people without medical background and/or personal interaction wouldn't know much more than basics.
People lose certain motor skills, seemingly on half of their body. Is that in all cases (I assume not) and what does it depend on? Is it possible to lose motor skills on both sides of the body? Does it impact brain function or is it purely physical? Can one rehabilitate that or is it permanent? Does the condition worsen over time even without further strokes? Does having one raise the likelihood of having another?
Maybe you know all the answers to these questions on long term effects, but I would guess 95% of people don't.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Neither||
Neither Georgia nor Auburn are anywhere near the playoffs.
So one could very easily root for results that help with recruiting AND results that help with playoffs.
And for the record, the Georgia/Auburn game was not exactly tire fire, but definitely cripple fight.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Well they did lose||
Well, point of fact, OSU DID lose that game. Then about 5 minutes after the game was over, a ref decided he'd like to change the outcome and toss a flag.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I hardly follow||
hockey at all, but it's odd you would question how anyone could favor college hockey over junior hockey. This is a blog focused on the beauty of college football, which is clearly "inferior" football compared to the NFL skill level (see also college basketball:NBA).
It's pretty obvious that there are a ton of reasons why one might prefer one tier of a sport over others, not based solely on the skill of the product on the field (rink...court... pitch).
|12 weeks 6 days ago||The reason||
YOU don't want it locked so you can state YOUR opinion while not entertaining any dialogue, is exactly the reason it was locked.
For the record, I don't know shit about any side of this, but it's clear you're not looking for a conversation.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I wonder||
when you're doing your job and you present your work product to someone, if the very first reaction they have is to say to themselves, "well that guy is not attractive."
|13 weeks 6 days ago||He's trying||
to fit a narrative somehow, someway, don't stop him now.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Ignore the "trust the coaches"||
Ignore the "trust the coaches" arguments, because those are lazy. But it is preposterous to me that anyone would find it UNACCEPTABLE to burn a redshirt in efforts to win a game which quite literally came down to inches.
The team wanted to win this game, the one they were playing, the one right in front of them that was back and forth all night with injuries all over, hanging in the balance on a knife edge with one play here or there potentially swinging the game. You can't just throw away games that are winnable.
For all we know winning this game is the difference in perception to a top recruit of "program returning to dominance" vs. "program still in rebuilding".
|13 weeks 6 days ago||What was totally missed by the announcers on that "fumble"||
What was totally missed by the announcers on that "fumble" is that the guy who recovered it only had possession when his own foot was out of bounds
They only let it run past the actual fumble a couple times and never mentioned it, but that was clearly not possession totally in bounds
|13 weeks 6 days ago||He really didn't||
He really didn't "almost fuck us." He touched it without anyone around, knew he touched it, and was not under pressure to gain control of it. Everything after that was just dumbasses in the announcing booth and on the field not knowing the rules (potentially including Peppers, but doesn't change the fact that he didn't need to do anything other than gain position of it in the endzone)
It's the same instinct that saves us 15 yards of field position on a lot of the punts when he sprints forward and dives to make the catch.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||I look at it this way||
I look at it this way (now....after several whiskeys and some time)....
At some point next year on our way to the national championship, we're gonna get some huge bullshit break that we don't deserve, and we'll all say "we paid for that with MSU 2015."
And everything will be in its right place.
Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon.
