"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

That's because it didn't make any sense.

If I was this girls dad I'd ground her because no daughter of mine is going to be hanging out with losers.

honestly, that makes no sense. you root for the school you go to IMO- the team you rooted for in middle school/ high school has a lot less significance before you step on campus.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||OK genius again you missed||
OK genius again you missed the point. It's more about Dirks getting the extra at bats because he's a rookie and they dont want to sit him for a couple weeks. He might as well get the bats in Toledo than sit on his ass in Detroit.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Did you listen to Leyland||
Did you listen to Leyland explain the move? because it makes sense. After the game he said it's not a demotion but the next couple weeks they're going up against mostly left handed pitchers (Dirks is left handed) - and rather than sitting him that whole time they'd rather have home go to Toledo and get 50 extra at bats in the mean time and then call him up in September again. Inge is a late inning defensive upgrade and he's a right handed bat so it makes sense when you think about it like that. Leyland even said it's "Not a demotion" just they want to keep giving Dirks at bats because he's a rookie.
EDIT: They also just picked up Delmon Young so they don't need him as much in the outfield anymore.

When you say "they," it sounds like you're referring to the linemen when it seems like you're trying to refer to the offense as a whole. Your point may be true on a whole but you proved it very confusedadiedly.

Shit, he's nasty. I think he's gonna fit in here juuuussst fine.

a lot of us are tired of this elitist bullshit around here. just because you have 1000000 points doesn't mean you know anything it just means you live on this site 24/7 and respond to everything you can. the way ideas are silenced on this blog is amazing for the high standards and intellectual dialogue it seems to want to hold itself to. its more like a high school clique than a place for discussion. whatever the cool kids say goes.

you all act like he had nothing to do with his own perception.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||i agree wholeheartedly. and||
i agree wholeheartedly. and yet there's still no response to this from the MgoBlog elite. Seems they're happier trashing people than responding to fair arguments.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I noticed none of the other||
I noticed none of the other shit talkers here had anything to say so I thought I would. This is why RR is being held responsible. There was talent on these teams and he couldn't win with it. You're all diluting the facts if you can't see this. Thanks for this post making it painfully obvious especially as it refers to the defense.

pardon me if i'm not offended by your arrogance and snide response.

If only they would have scored more points than every team they would have won the National Championship. Unfortunately they didn't, so they didn't.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||i never said i don't care how||
i never said i don't care how i'm perceived. i don't on this website because it's just that.
do i care about MGoPoints? What's the prize for having the most of those? oh yeah that's why i don't care.
if you would have stopped and thought for a second why an argument like mine would make sense in context with many peoples opinions around here then it probably wouldn't have seemed so "patently myopic." If it's something you've already accepted fine move on. Many people haven't and I myself have had conflicting thoughts of the situation until recently.
and BTW- my post wasn't meant as a dead serious appraisal. It was somewhat tongue in cheek coupled with my opinion. Hence the "painstaking research" for a cut and paste from wikipedia. My opinion is that he was fired because of his putrid record historically placing him last among all coaches that have ever coached here- not because of all the other distractions people are choosing to focus on.

I responded with a reasoned answer. He told me to "go drink another budweiser."
where's your critique of that?
oh and did you miss all the responses from my post the last 2 pages?
i never said the problem is with anybody else. i stated my opinion.

I'm saying your point is weak, biased, and stupid. Drink some more kool-aid with your maize colored glasses on.

which is why im not surprised by your response.

-1 because it's true.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||the point is it doesn't||
the point is it doesn't matter that we don't have "THE GUY" ready. the point is that RR is not "THE GUY" and we know that.
I liked the post about how OSU hired Tressel on January 18th or something like that. How's that working out for them? .800 winning percentage or something like that? 7 wins straight against arch rival.
The point is get the right guy even if it takes a little longer. In the big scheme of things a couple of recruits or a week or 2 worth of time doesn't matter.

fuckin hell man exactly. buy this man a drink.

what's really redundant is how everyone replies with the same response and they all think they're witty and funny.
OMG i'm broke in MGoWorld
you can all go back to doing this now:
