Is on the latter.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Funny once||
Imho, not multiple times.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||The joke isn't 3 x funny||
Only submitted once.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||If he wins that way...||
Will Kate Upton approve?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||A Michigan Man can do better||
It is an Ohio, not a Ohio.
But I will agree coming on to just troll is stupid. Of course, admittedly, I am not adding much here. So I will say, congrats Mr. Peppers.
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||Maybe Brian will break tendencies||
And do a UFR. I saw one OSU site mention you went from Man to Zone.
|7 weeks 11 hours ago||Saw this today|
|7 weeks 23 hours ago||I think Weber was wanting a flag||
As I recall, the defender drove him out of bounds and then kind of threw him down. I don't think it was worth a flag because I think he was completing a play that started inbounds. And I think that is what the ref was telling Weber there. But I agree the butt smack is odd.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||A few more shocking stats||
In those four shutouts, Rutgers totaled 126 passing yards. OSU/UM/PSU/MSU: 751.
Rushing? Rutgers got 265 yards in those 4 games. OSU/UM/PSU/MSU: 1,507.
Overall, 2,258 yards to 391.
Rutgers 24 1st downs, OSU/UM/PSU/MSU 100
They forced 12 total punts, meanwhile RU punter Michael Cintron punted 46 times for 1,729 yards. He punted 43 times in their other 7 games for 1,642 yards. He's got 3,371yards on the season.
First P5 team since Baylor in 2002 to be shutout in 4 games in the same season.

Look! There's a rule, a tradition which says...
I have to kiss this girl. She's just upholding the law. It's a federal law, actually.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||With College||
The top two are Baseball and Football, the order varies depedning on which schoool you are talking about. #3 varies, as you say, after that. At Iowa and Penn State Wrestling might actually be #3. Heck at PSU Wrestling may be #2 because their basketball has been so dreadful for so long. At times, at OSU, Women's Hoops were probably 3rd. That still might be the case, though Hockey is close if it isn't.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||I think you have some apples and oranges there||
The Interwbes tell me the Wilpon Complex seats 2,800. I don't know what regular season ticketrs go for, but at MGOBLUE.COM, the tourney tickets are $8-12, I would assume regular season tickets to Hockey or MBB are 5 to 10 times that. Not to mention Yost seats a bit more than twice that number (6,600 is the number I found) and Crisler about 4 and half times as many (12,707.)
It sounds like you have a strong core of supporters for Softball which is great, but I don't think comparing the sellouts is a fair way to judge the comparitive interest in the sports mentioned.
A pro sports example I saw the other days was an argument between Pens and Priates fans. The Pens have had a bunch of sellouts, but the Pirates still have the higher radio and TV ratings. PNC Park holds about twice what the Consol Energy Center does.

Sorry about that.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Last year it was our turn to be the marquee home game for Rutger||
They seem to be following the recent Penn State trend of having either you or us (depending on the year) as their big night home game. We are PSU's white out game, again this season. Since 2010 it has been either you or us except for 2011 when they did it for Alabama.
Interestingly Maryland has not gone that route. Our game in 2014 and yours in 2015 were both Wolverine Devotee approved noon kickoffs ay Byrd.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||The real question is||
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Yes||
He and his wife had lead the fundraising for it and reportedly donated several million dollars. They love her as much as him and I think their BOT decided that might be a bridge too far.
Their Food Science ice cream shop still sells Peachy Paterno. Much to the consternation of the cultist, they named the building for the President who signed the Consent Degree with the NCAA.
The McAndrew forum at their Rivals site is the epicenter of the crazies. They have a dozen or so folks that can best be described as the Free Jerry bloc. They are convinced he was railroaded and just had boundry issues. They are easy spot because when they discuss the young men were abused by Sandusky as "victims." Their view is the real victims are the Paternos and themselves. Many of the rest think those guys give the rest of them a bad name.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||I was living in exile in DC||
The local government I worked for hired two new folks to act almost like living mirrored drives. That way if one of us was sick, on vacation, etc the other would be there. I was one and my compatriot, John, grew up in Ann Arbor, went to Wisconsin and had worked for PSU. Started in the late spring of 2002.
I would regularly share stuff from the OZone, way before Tony Gerdman was there with him. We were the only B1G folks, our boss was a Terps alum, wonderful guy. John wanted a little more balance and dug around and found the MZone and MGoBlog. There wasn't a lot of good free content to a couple B1G guys starving for news. I lurked at both, along with some other B1G team sites, most which are defunct or got picked up by sbnation, for a long time. The MZone was much more casual, so I posted there when Yost started the site back during conference realignment. When he semiretired and went to tweeting I finally started posting over here.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Reminds me of a wedding reception I wnt to in Chicago years ago||
Where the bride insisted on having the DJ play U2's With or Without You for their couples dance. Marriage ended about 3 weeks later.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||At one time||
There was even a groupon for half off membership. While not Dave Brandon's idea, it did seem Brandonesque at the time.
Penn State has a similar philosophy of letting friends of the University join the alumni association.
Ours is a more traditional approach, per the alumni website, we limit members to:
Individuals who have earned associate, bachelor, graduate, professional, or honorary degrees from Ohio State, as well as medical resident graduates of the university.

|50 weeks 15 hours ago||Should be Josh Groban||
Instead of Josh Gracin. Oh wait, wrong coach...
|50 weeks 5 days ago||If Saban did it||
Or Urban Meyer or (insert your favorite coach to dislike), would you find it objectionable?
Maybe it is because I come from the Dark Side, but if he was upfront with them, I don't have much of a problem with it. Especially if it might be a one season thing. He grabbed a lot of these kids before the season started or got going. As the season started to exceed expectations he got better plays to show interest. The probelm is how much did he tell them and when.
Having been on the revieving end of this with a few girls back in the day, it sucks and I feel for the young men. But again, how much did they know and when did they know and that is something that can't really be answered at this time.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||I almost posted something like that at Testudo Times||
But the wounds are fresh, and humor from a Buckeye might not be well received so soon. I did tell that to some Terp fans I know from my years in DC, but I prefer lurking to trolling as a rule anyhow. I was here not long after Brian started. A coworker who was a Michigan fan when we were both living in exile in DC introduced me to it and the Mzone. I didn't start posting here until a couple years ago.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||It wasn't all on him||
You guys had gotten bitten badly and repeatedly by the injury bug. Yeah the timing sucked and if Beck or Warinner had announced they took a job after we pooped ourselves against MSU where we had only the weather and overconfidennce to blame, I'd be bitter as well. So I get it, I just think he wasn't going to come up with much better given the pieces he had left.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe he should tweet him||
Let him know what a disappointment this "low character behavior" is. That can't hurt, right? /s
|51 weeks 6 days ago||And don't forget||
|51 weeks 6 days ago||(No subject)||
|51 weeks 6 days ago||That||
And the fact cars run fine on "water" from Flint, the market in Michigan is flooded with a lower cost alternative. And it works great on old engines no special additive required like you need with unleaded gas.
|1 year 1 day ago||Between the screen name||
The needless vulgarity in his posts and the slightly oblivious sexism, I'm excpecting he might get to visit Bolivia soon. So over the top, leads me to wonder if he is genuinely a Michigan fan or partaking in a crude form of performance art.
|1 year 2 days ago||Given your views on some issues||
Kind of glad about that. Doesn't cancel my vote out. And while it usually isn't close in presidental elections, where I live several school districts around us and my own have come down to one or two votes. Ours in 2010 passed by two votes. A neighboring district failed when it tied. http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2010/11/30/story-amanda-clearcreek-l...
