I guess knives, bludgeons, knuckle dusters, etc. are fine at Louisville.

So...I guess "Do not plagiarize" isn't very high on Louisville's list (assuming here that Strong took this list from his time under Meyer) of core values.

Isn't it more likely that Gordon-Levitt will be playing the role of Nightwing or, God forbid, Robin?
|2 days 2 hours ago||A couple of factors playing||
A couple of factors playing against Tiger:
Left knee issues: Tiger has had multiple surgeries on his left knee and I think it is going to become more of a problem with each passing year.
Level of competition: IMO there are more good-to-great players on the Tour these days than there were in Jack's day. I think the advances in equipment technology have also leveled the playing field a little.
Five years ago it was almost a foregone conclusion that Tiger would break Jack's record. Now, I wouldn't bet on it happening.

Slightly OT but does anyone know if Mone is a Mormon? If he is, I wonder if he would take his mission during college. I was surprised that Te'o did not.
NOTE: I hope this doesn't offend or come off as "profiling" but I figured the chances are pretty good seeing as he is a Polynesian living in Utah.

Hmmm...that sounds vaguely familiar...
|4 days 1 hour ago||Technically, the Big East||
Technically, the Big East doesn't exist as a football conference any longer. It is now the American Athletic Conference and as bad as the Big East was it is even more pathetic now. Almost every team in this new conference was in Conference USA within the past 7 years. I assume that they will not be getting an auto BCS bid any longer...not that it matters much with this being the last season of the BCS and all.
Louisville will probably go undefeated in the regular season and will not have beaten a single Top 25 caliber opponent along the way.

Yeah, that caught my eye as well. Did they turn it over on the next play after each of those bombs?

After venting via my snark-filled post, I decided to actually look at Bama's schedule for 2013. I was pretty shocked at just how weak it is...
Bama's 2013 regular season schedule with opponents' 2012 record in parens:
For those keeping score at home, that is 2 FCS teams, 5 FBS teams who made it to a bowl game (btw, Va Tech and Ole Miss squeaked into bowl games with 6-6 records) and 5 FBS teams who did not get the 6 measly wins required for a bowl invite.
Additional fun fact: Of Miss State's 8 wins, only 1 was against an FBS opponent who finished with a winning record. That opponent: 8-4 Middle Tennessee State from the Sun Belt.

Because Aussies are the most cantankerous, ill-tempered, unlikeable folks on the planet, naturally.

The insinuation by Forde that OSU losing to UM in Ann Arbor would be so off-kilter that something must have "gone wrong" is both ridiculous and insulting.

They offer AP Engineering, now? Geebus.
That is interesting because I suspected that his interest in engineering might have been pretty slight. I know UM has had several recruits come through lately (Pat Omameh and Brandin Hawthorne are two who come to mind) who listed engineering as their intended major when they were being recruited but none of them ever actually majored in it at UM.
I still can't understand why he would drop VaTech because they don't have a Sports Management major and, yet, he still lists an interest in majoring in Engineering at Alabama. Weird.

I think Brian was actually commenting on the fact that it was believed that Gant would be a higher ranked recruit as a high school senior based on his earlier exploits but that never came to pass.

Without a doubt the coolest "cool story, bro!" story I have ever read.

Sorry to go a little OT but what was it like working in a compliance office? Was it just a lot of dull, routine paperwork? Second question: Did you attempt to get work with the UM athletic department? I think for most of us on this here board, working for the Michigan AD would be a dream come true.

The problem is that you don't get access to Insider until you start getting the magazine which takes 8-10 weeks to start from when you sign up. I know because I signed up a few weeks ago when the latest great deal was announced and was really bummed to learn that I would have to wait this long because I only signed up for the Insider access.

I just re-read The Hobbit about 6 weeks ago and I am pretty sure Legolas was NOT mentioned in the novel at all.

If they make the Children of Hurin into a 5 part film series we know we are in serious trouble.

Yeah, I waited to watch An Unexpected Journey on Blu-ray from my local Redbox. Glad I did, too; it was a decent enough movie (and I like Martin Freeman in just about anything) but I'm glad I only paid $1.50 to see it rather than $9.00.

re: Orlando Bloom...I'm guessing it had something to do with industry people finally realizing that he was simply a pretty boy who couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.
re: inclusion of Tauriel and Legolas in The Hobbit: WTF?!? I'm glad that someone is making Tolkien movies but these completely unnecessary alterations are really annoying.

Wisconsin plays OSU in Columbus early in their conference schedule. Are you expecting them to beat OSU?
Would anyone actually be shocked if Hand didn't pick UM? If so, they need to take off the maize and blue glasses.
