Man, for a second I thought you were giving Herman Moore a LOT of respect.
|3 days 11 hours ago||I know||
I know I'm of a certain older generation that many on here may not recall, but with my formative sports years in the late 80s-mid 90s, I feel like it's back to the future:
MSU is below mediocre, and so focused on MICH to the point where they don't even care to try in their other games, OSU has a boatload of talent and pisses away some random night game, and ND exists in this world where they receive a ton of hype and respect, and yet no one is sure why given that every year they underperform their expectations (that last one actually hasn't changed in the last 20 years).
And just to complete the throwback, since i live in Pac 12 country now: Colorado and Washington are good, and Stanford and Oregon are terrible.
Excuse me while I throw on some Smashing Pumpkins and Tribe Called Quest
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Stanford after Harbaugh||
Look, we all love JH, but Stanford won the Pac-12 last year and were very nearly a playoff team.
It's been 5 years since Shaw took over, I think we can just say he's a pretty good coach.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Reporter||
Reporter to coach after random devastating loss: "Coach, how could your WR run the wrong route/CBs give up a hail mary/RB miss the blocking protection, isn't that something you work on in practice?"
Dumbass coach: "No, we didn't have time for that this week, we were busy having every single person practice placekicking."
There's only so much time to practice EVERYTHING that is actually likely to arise in a football game.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah I watched the Fooball in||
Yeah I watched the Fooball in 60 last night for MSU Wisconsin and while I would argue UW was better, that game really wasn't one sided outside a handful of plays (botched punt inside the 10, 60 yard fumble return for TD, MSU self destruction in the red zone, couple THISCLOSE long passes to Corley)
|3 weeks 5 days ago||And Steele||
And Hall, and Dhani, and Sword, and Gold, and Griese, and Tuman, and Streets, and A-Train, and Hutchinson, and Jansen, and Backus, and...
It's nice to have an inspirational narrative but it's probably better to just have a shit-ton of NFL level talent.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think||
anyone takes ownership of Phelps or Jeter as UM athletes because they weren't.
I think a great majority of people here take ownership of those guys as people who attended UM.....because they did. So kind of acceptable to see a similarity there
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Difference with Oregon||
The refs did not blow the play dead in the Oregon game. They saw it was a fumble live and let the play run.
Also I guess you can say "Texas lost on that play" but that makes it sound like it cost them the win, which is not the same thing. They were down 7 with no timeouts from the their own 20 with 80 seconds left. And Charlie Strong as their coach. So not exactly high likelihood of success.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||You're watching a different game||
Oh boy, you're watching a different game. I was at the UO game and the fans are already fed up with Hoke and its game 2, giving up huge chunks and sustained drives to a team that lost to an FCS team by 17 last week. They were gashing Oregon repeatedly. Natives are already restless.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Well if you want to do||
Well if you want to do something based on principle, that is a stupid rule so they shouldn't change anything. A penalty on the team with the ball, that allows that team to effectively end the game to avoid turning the ball over to the other team should give them one more play.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Kelly's job security||
Kelly's job security has to start to get questioned just a bit, doesn't it? His win percentage is probably extremely high, and he's taken them to a title game, but he's also solidified the program as always missing a piece or two, constantly overrated with unimpressive actual performances even when they win, and has given zero indication he could lead them to an NC.
And that's setting aside the image he's created as a complete and total asshole, which probably has some small (perhaps negligible perhaps not) impact on recruiting.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Gary on the wheel||
Yes, on Hawaii's second and goal with like a minute left in the first half, McCray gets a strip sack and the QB recovered his own fumble around the 20. But the entire play was designed to have the weakside end crash and quickly dump off to the back wheeling around.
But Gary goes with the back instead and is plenty quick enough to stay right with him, as the QB starts his motion toward the RB, then pulls it back in since he's covered, and gets smashed by McCray

DVR - I maybe could get past the annoyance of buffering and dropped connections but I could never get rid of cable/satellite for the DVR.

from Canada. Both are pretty old in the sport at this point, but Willis has had incredible longevity, and Brannen made his first Final in his third Olympics.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Horn||
The Germany GK is terrible, he's diving way before the guys commit.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||A little late for this||
but I've been googling for like 30 minutes, does anyone know who all the overage players are for each side, besides Neymar and the Benders?
|10 weeks 3 days ago||The comment||
about 9th grade writing is nothing to do with the content of the piece, it's the absolutely ridiculous way in which it's written. The short sentences, commas, periods, rehtorical questions, which serve no purpose other than to seem impactful. But hey, I know people get defensive about their writing, there are few things more personal, even if you're trying to be constructive in a critique. I get it, I see it all the time.
By the way, your logic is way off: If I say track is where cycling was 10 years ago, it is clearly not the same as saying that track 10 years ago is different than it is today. It implies nothing about the change of track doping over time (track has been doped since way before Gatlin, look at Carl Lewis' braces, Flo Jo...), and implies everything about current public willingness to overlook crazier and crazier performances (yesterday's women's 10K, every 100M event, Russian/Chinese athletes setting records in every disclipline from 110Hs to the 10K).
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Good god||
Is this actually serious writing or should we give the benefit of the doubt and assume it's supposed to be a satire of a random 9th grade English class paper by some kid who just read Hemingway
But seriously, if anyone thinks that Bolt is clean, and the "hero" to Gatlin's villain, then you have no idea what's going on in track (or Jamaican drug testing, or lack thereof). Track right now is cycling 10 years ago, you'd have to go 10-15 deep in any event to find the best clean athlete.

When you can't argue the merits of a point, resort to comparisons to RichRod.

Of course it depends on what you're making at home, but Blue Apron generally makes two full sized meals (some a bit more, some a bit less) for $20.
If you get takeout from anywhere decent it's at minimum $8.95 per entree, probably more, and if you're not a dick you tip them a buck or two (that will start a whole new discussion). That's $20 right there.
And as for cooking at home, you can certainly cook more for less at home, but that's really only achieved with economies of scale, so you really better LOVE whatever you're making and eat it for the next three days. Otherwise, to make, for example, mustard pork tenderloin and bacon brussells sprouts which i went for this weekend, is every bit as expensive. Delicious, but not inexpensive.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Yep, same here. I got kids, I||
Yep, same here. I got kids, I don't do shit on NYE so I liked watching football, but then again I like just throwing on QVC after a few cocktails, so I recognize that what I enjoy is probably dead wrong for ratings popularity
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Having gone back and played a||
Having gone back and played a bunch of NES and even Super NES games a major issue is that a vast majority did not have a Save feature. So it's real hard to pick up and set down when you're playing the first three levels of the game every time
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Dropped 4 spots||
"He also dropped 4 spots on 247 but that was because others moved up."
Umm, how else would that happen? That's not really an explanation.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Hindsight||
I posted it, and since it was probably my highlight as a poster on here, I have often thought about it in hindsight and how the joke is kind of on me. It was probably 2013 or so, and I'll eat some crow, because I took a shot at the then-recent (what i thought was fleeting) success of their football team, and low and behold, they've actually sustained it a lot longer than I thought they would.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I...don't.||
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Well||
Well isn't that a false dichotomy. People could do a million other things outside besides football, including dozens of other sports, or climbing trees, playing capture the flag, simply admiring the beauty of nature. They could also do a million things inside other than electronics, like drawing, painting, reading, playing the saxophone, learning to count cards...all of which would be as useful, or more, in providing "fulfillment" (whatever that means) for a person.
And I really don't have that great an issue with kids playing football, but these portraits of one-of-a-kind experiences solely acheived from football are hogwash.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Look buddy||
I don't think you're a moron for not guessing what will happen.
But by the same token, how can you get mad at other people who do just GUESS at what will happen? No one KNOWS what will happen, so it's not a spoiler of any sort.
But I will go ahead and ruin the series finale - Dany and the Night King end up making out and taking over the world together...Fire and Ice indeed.

98% sure that Drake is in on the joke here, between this song and Jumpman (and the Hot Line Bling dancing). He's a smart guy and pretty self-aware, I think he's just saying "eff it, I can say the same four lines, put a beat on it, and these morons will buy it and play it and tell themselves they like it."
