Looks that way.

Come on now.

Rudock can't connect deep I am ready to see if Morris can. He is leaving a lot of points on the field.
|6 hours 22 min ago||Jitters||
Are the norm for most programs. For a long time we only had enthusiasm to start the year because we knew we were going to kick the shit out of fools. I think Jitters are to be expected for a fan base that has fallen to were we have been lately.

Illinois. A tie game for god sake.

know whether what he is missing is something that one can "get good at." He does not have the voice or the syntax to be a play by play guy. I thought it was a mistake when they decided on him to do play by play. I like Brandy, but its not good. At the time I was like "anybody but Matt Shephard." Now I would take Shep and run.

goes out for tonight because of the weather I am going to freak.
|12 hours 58 min ago||What goes through||
people's minds when they do something like that? Unreal.

work on the Penske file.
In actuality, the good thing about college football is that the day before, or in this case the day of the game, are usually days where not a whole lot is getting done anyway. On any given Friday (In this case thursday due to holiday), my productively and the productivity in my office is down anyway so it really doesn't make much of a difference.

Stone sober. Ice Tea is the plan. And Pizza. SO . MUCH . PIZZA.

were the other suspensions that were overturned? Genuinely curious. I am going to read the opinion now and get to the bottom of this.
|16 hours 1 min ago||The NFL||
did not need evidence or precedent to issue a suspension, it is their right under the collective bargaining agreement. Look, I get it, you are discussing it from a place of objective fairness, I am looking at it from a legal nuts and bolts perspective. I think Goodell is a clown but there are some inherent misperceptions in your argument. From a legal standpoint this is a very surprising decision.
|16 hours 6 min ago||Have not||
read yet but I give it even money that that decision is toast in 6 months.
|16 hours 11 min ago||You||
are missing the point. Yes, my guess is that the reason for reversal was a general due process analysis, but the fact that the Judge even got into the facts of the underlying conduct is surprising. This decision, if upheld, will essentially invalidate the entire process by which the NFL disciplines players. It could have effects on the legality of suspensions for other things like domestic violence in the absence of criminal convictions. It is actually pretty stunning.
|16 hours 16 min ago||I cannot||
figure out how to even start to disect that analysis. The discipline was not doled out "on a whim," it was done entirely consistent with a mutually bargained agreement as to the procedure for discipline. There was very little "evidence or precedent" to overturn it. This is very bold move by the federal court and may be in serious trouble on appeal. I'm glad it is overturned but this is a very surprising turn of events.
|16 hours 19 min ago||It actually||
is incredibly surprising. I need to read the opinion, my guess is that it is a stretch.
|16 hours 47 min ago||Whatever, it's gameday,||
this thread it AWESOME. Go Blue.
|16 hours 49 min ago||I was||
this excited for the Alabama game, but there was the rather large seed of doubt in my mind that was telling me I should not be excited. That proved to be correct. (Man that was a rough weekend). I don't have that doubt right now.

could legitimately join the WWE and develop a large following. I mean look at that face! Intensity only rivaled by Randy Savage.

not saying it would be at the feet of Hackett, I was just thinking about what would happen to this huge pregame love affair with everything in the event that something completely unforeseen took place tonight. Now that I think about it, if we did get taken to the shed I could see it actually being taken somewhat comically by the Board. It would seem like a really cruel prank.
|17 hours 12 min ago||I don't||
know if it is all that harsh. Last year the level of incompetence shown by the coaching staff almost reached a level where it was an afront to the program. He also personally became very detached and dismissive. I think you could call the split mutual but I don't know if you could go as far as to call it amicable.
|17 hours 28 min ago||Just saying.....||
I cannot imagine the meltdown that is going to take place here if we get smoked. I am not saying it is going to happen, and am not trolling at all. Just a thought experiment. This morning we are thanking Jim Hackett. Say we get beat 40-7 tonight. There would be a level of confused, inebriated animalistic rage on these pages that would be unrivaled except for possibly the Horror.

Yes, you are.

|1 day 12 hours ago||It may not have||
a big effect on our overall record, but it may have a big effect on how competitive we are in games that we lose. That is to say, I don't think that is a make or break issue between 7 wins and 10 wins, but it would make us a much better team even in losses. It would be particularly beneficial for Butt as defenses would not really get to scheme against him as much and could tie up a safety who has to shade.
I think you will see a lot of Lloydish pass plays this year. We will see a steady stream of bubbles, hithces, and outs to stetch the defense from side line to side line and open up the middle of the field. The deep threat will come if those plays succeed and defenses will bite on them. I don't think there is a home run hitter in that group of receivers, though.

I am really having trouble concentrating on anything. It is making me realize how far my interest dipped the last two years. I really have not anticipated a game like since..... Alabama. Uh oh.
|2 days 10 hours ago||From||
all the hype this game is getting it actually would not shock me too much if coverage did start tonight at 7.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Quit your job||
dude. It is really the only move.

disappeared three years ago in a sudden, unexplained departure event. How do I make sure she sees the game?
