I agree O'Connor likely won't be as good as Cook, but they'll find a WR who wasn't very heralded before, they always seem to. Yes, Burbridge was a blue-chip recruit, but he wasn't really on the radar much his first few years in EL, so I consider him unheralded relative to how his final year went. Lippett as well.
That said, I think our DL will crush their OL, barring ours being a M*A*S*H unit.

Riley Bullough actually going there with the "disrespect" tweet. Unreal. A few years ago I finally came around to having to respect Sparty because of their undeniable on-field successes, but their incessant off-field bitching and mouth-running really does just give it all right back with me. What a trash fanbase and program.

It's frustrating to watch the youngsters sit because Blashill and Holland want to play "low-event" hockey. I played and I definitely get why you want to try to win 1-0 and 2-1 games when you're going to be outgunned, but when that's not working you might as well unshackle the kids and let them learn and grow.

I was at Game 7 against St Louis 20 years ago. That is the gold standard for sure. Not even the Colorado games I went to had the same feel as that one.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||A surprising number, I found||
A surprising number, I found when I lived in Columbus. There was a brief "defection" to the Jackets in 2009 when they finally made the Playoffs, but that ended right quick as the Wings promptly gutted them in four straight (though the clinching game did provide some excitement).
I was at a bar watching one of the games, it's been a long time but a quick google tells me it was Game 2, the Wings scored early in the 3rd to make it 4-0. This guy sitting a few spots down from me, an older fella who I could tell from some of his other statements he hadn't watched much hockey before that day, says, "OK, they're gonna win but they'd better call off the dogs, our boys are gonna remember this for the next one." I'm just like, two things, firstly, LOL, secondly, yeah I'm sure you were saying that when Tressel was running the score up on Rich Rod a few months back. Surprisingly that shut him up.

I've been on a strict diet and exercise regimen and haven't drank since St Paddy's...that stretch is going down hard at about 4:30 this afternoon. Getting together for a gents' night with some old buds, hope I'm still coherent for the game! LGRW!!!
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||Holland was due to finally be||
Holland was due to finally be bitten on the ass. I feel like "the streak" has become a curse because he seems like he believes all he has to do now is keep it alive and that in and of itself is good enough. This team was probably going to need a light rebuild to get back to truly competing for Cups, but that's never happening as long as they still manage to do just well enough to squeak into the bottom rung of playoff teams every year.

Better after next year maybe, but the streak probably ends in 2017 if they still have Datsyuk's cap hit.

"Some guys need to be pulled before their 3rd time through the order, no matter what the pitch count is."
At least when he played for the Tigers.

So, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
First thing's first: Tulsa is damn near 500 miles from the nearest coastline, how often does it get hit by hurricanes? Secondly, what the hell is a Golden Hurricane? Is it like a golden shower but worse? Multiple pissers?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I have an unreasonable hatred||
I have an unreasonable hatred of teams who sucked and my team dominated for years and who are now good. In short, I hate the Chicago Blackhawks in a way that can only be compared to my hatred of MSU. It's a different kind of hatred than that directed at teams who have always been good ala Ohio State. I don't know where the difference is, but I'm thinking the increased venom for the former laughingstocks probably begins with how much more annoying and irritating the resurgence tends to make their fans.
Apologies to the Maize and Blue 'Hawks fans here.

Ohio State is that in football. Should we just plan on losing to them forever too? It feels like we're already halfway to that point.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||This. It's not that Michigan||
This. It's not that Michigan was blown out by MSU at home Saturday. It's that they were last year as well, and I see virtually no chance of beating them next year. Better times do not seem to be on the horizon, that's what I've been trying to say since Saturday.

This. Anyone who thinks he does anything "unintentionally" gives him way too much credit.
"I guess he's (Ric Flair's) down there,.... I don't know what to say, it just sort of slipped..."
It's funny all he has to say is "them" or "down there" or "other programs" and even without the Flair reference in this case, anyone who watches college football would know who he's talking about. He doesn't have to be any more descriptive because at this point it's basically expected that he's going to find some way to say something about Michigan. He can't help himself.

"UM student" who misspells multiple commonly used words, check.
Joined the week of a Michigan-MSU game, check.
Felt need to explain how he lurked here for like, ever, but joined because posters were being a little too reasonable about their team's chances and not feeding the Sparty straw man narrative, check.
Go watch 300 or some other homoerotic bro-fest about men in skirts for your tenth time this week.

Read the posting history. The fact he/she/it has 400+ points is kind of mindblowing.

Yeah, but he'd have to hire a Michigan guy. Have you seen their IT program? Non-starter.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||It's funny, I hadn't followed||
It's funny, I hadn't followed State's recruiting class because I don't really concern myself with what other programs are doing during the offseason (a novel concept they should maybe try), and I'd been hearing for weeks from State fans about what an idiot and an ass Harbaugh is for ignoring in-state recruiting and how he's "burning bridges" with Michigan HS coaches. Imagine my surprise yesterday when I went to look at State's signee list on Rivals to see that they had a whopping...4-3 advantage in in-state guys. LOL what a bunch of asshats.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||I would agree with that. To||
I would agree with that. To be honest, I do not envy Jim's position going into this year. If he drops to 0-4 against the rivals, with serious attrition going into 2017, there's going to be a lot of (in the media and from dickbag fanbases, anyway), "Well, Michigan, you got your savior coach and still can't beat them...now what?". It's just a major gut kick how things played out last fall because now he's gotta win road games to avoid that. IF (and I take nothing for granted) we can get emergence at the QB position, I am confident with this defense that they can go into East Lansing and come out with a win. As good as I think this team is going to be, Columbus...is going to be tough. But I certainly write nothing off.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Well, we saw in both the AFC||
Well, we saw in both the AFC Championship Game and the CoFoPoff Semifinal what a game-controlling presence a dominant D-line can have. Two of the best QBs at their respective levels (emphasis to be clear I'm not putting Cook anywhere near the GOAT) couldn't do a damn thing because their O-lines were getting their doors blown off.
Michigan's LB corps may still be far from elite this year, but with a little more athleticism than last year's unit, combined with that D-line and corners and Jabrill Peppers...it's gonna goddamn hard to put points on the board against this team.

Well then, okey doke. The thread title said something about a "new low", so I was just curious as to whether that was hyperbole or he really said something beyond the pale, such as an accusation of violations pulled from his ass. Carry on.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||If people have been warned||
If people have been warned about discussing it then just ignore, but if not I'm curious - I saw the thread earlier but by the time I clicked it had been deleted - what did Valenti say about Gary?
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Eh, pretty much what I'd||
Eh, pretty much what I'd expect. Ohio State with the usual "Michigan is poopy heads", State with the constant "Fuck Michigan no I am not obsessed with them I hate them and everything they do but I swear I don't ever think about them did you see what they did today oh I hate them and am not obsessed with them", Clemson with the "LOL ZOMG snow", Penn State with "God, Franklin is an idiot, I am so jealous of any team with a competent coach, oh and FREE JOEPA!!!". Blah blah blah fuck them all, theirs is coming (in Penn State's case, again) but until it's delivered I'll just bide my time quietly.

Not enough recent ones, that's for sure. Change this, Jim.
