OT: DAVE BRANDON STILL A DOUCHEBAG
Yeah, we covered this, but yes, he is still a douchebag.
|2 hours 46 min ago||It Makes Sense...||
It makes total sense that the first person to be Beckman'd would in fact be the original Beckman himself, but this is a good move by Larry Fedora and staff as it helps them avoid, in addition to the embarrassment of potential NCAA sanctions (when the NCAA finds sanity again), the host of publicity problems that can be experienced by having a UN human rights monitoring mission following Tim Beckman around all day.

Better than that, how about formed concrete? I would be willing to go through formed concrete as it seems like more of a challenge and I think that would possibly get me a little more notoriety in practice. Man, this competitiveness that Jim Harbaugh fosters is definitely contagious.

At the University of Michigan, he redshirted for a year and then became a starter at offensive tackle for the football team in the third game of his redshirt freshman season.
Then, of course, Jake Long time warped and transformed into Taylor Lewan, which is an interesting theory, if nothing else.
In all seriousness, I am looking forward to some Jake Long type play up front now.

I would agree, but really only because what will happen is that the HOA will sign him to a contract extension, and that fall, he'll go 3-9 and then maybye 5-7 the next year before they decide to let him go. Then it will be too late, of course, for he will be entitled - per his contract - to all the money from dues that would have gone to lawn and sidewalk maintenance. The subdivision will look like a shithole inside a few years. Weis still wins.

Here's the blurb from GoDucks.com - LINK
The idea behind it would apparently be this:
"We focused on creating a space that would allow us to objectively measure a student-athlete's development and readiness," said UO director of athletic medicine Dr. Greg Skaggs, who was a part of two fact-finding trips to research the MMSPC construction, including one that took him to NASA as well as Australia. "This data will give us the best opportunity to individualize training to maximize performance and prevent injury.

They are, of course, highly quotable. I believe it was the great George Perles who once told a presser that, and I believe this is the direct quote - "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones before their eggs hatch". This pearl of wisdom ended the presser in a mass of confusion, of course, and to this day, scholars have been unable to interpret it coherently, but it definitely means something.....I think.

As we're talking guidelines, the language is by definition a bit boilerplate and tries to cover even statistical unlikelihoods, but yeah, I know where you're coming from here.
In reality, it's a minor swipe at the amount of cleanup that occurs after losses....in the past, you understand.

When we were cleaning out the basement this spring, my kids came across a cache of old Sega Genesis games (I still have my console) and asked what they were.
"What are these, Dad?"
"Those are video games."
"That's not true. They aren't on a disc."
When I showed them the Sega console and said that, like Nintendo (I still have an NES too, but stored away), you had to buy cartridges and insert them into a slot in order to play the game, for a few seconds, they were in awe....then I think they went right back to thinking that was lame and who would buy such a thing. I felt old.

I believe this is only true if you are a Nigerian prince who has an apparent issue with the rules and standards of international banking or who has failed to set up an account with a bank here. Now, if we're talking about a Russian dating site, then there is no need to provide the ABA routing information - chances are it has been provided to them by a third-party hacker.

So what we're saying here is that there was an implied message in Freeze staging his own funeral, correct? It makes sense given the talk about results and what you would like people to say about you when you're gone. Perhaps he was providing suggestions about what he would prefer was said regarding him when he is eventually forced out - whenever that happens, if it happens....I mean, this IS the NCAA and they might very well congratulate Ole Miss on a well-played strategy and Freeze and others remain unscathed. He was just covering his bases, his oh so obscure bases, just in case he had the chance to spend more time with his family, right?
|13 hours 32 min ago||Good To Hear...||
This is good to hear, of course, although it will probably not put the NFL talk to rest only because the beat writers are so stymied by how he could have left the league that they must believe this stint at Michigan is but a short vacation as coaching careers go, or least it seems like they think this.
This is of no importance to Adam Schefter, of course, who will simply roll the narrative into a prediction regarding NFL expansion, so now it is simply "Singapore is still in play", allowing for the 20-25 years.
|17 hours 28 min ago||I Would Agree...||
I would agree, although lying down works better if you occasionally kick your left leg and sing "Hey, Look Me Over" from the musical "Wildcat" at the top of your lungs so people know where to find you just in case. Switch to your right leg when they start playing "Hell's Bells" for third downs too - that's important.

While it's funny that the national writers still seem to only get this right some of the time and are only superficially aware of them on a good day, I don't know that this thread will go exactly like the OP intends, but I could be wrong there.
One thing that probably will happen after Friday - mentions of #Disrespekt will be severely curtailed until MSU Hate Week perhaps.

His eyes are beginning to sink back into his head...quite a bit really. I suspect that at some point, possibly in the last few years, Dave Brandon chose poorly....quite a bit really.
Sorry, that's the first thing that stood out to me - every time I see him still I focus on parts of his face so I am not hearing the words.

I would say that if you have the money and requisite ability to create a situation where you can physically slow down your time to match the radio broadcast, then this would be the preferred solution. After all, if you personally can exist independent of ou unidirectional and linear perception of time, why wouldn't you showcase this talent to make catching games more convenient?
|1 day 7 hours ago||The One Thing...||
The one thing that eludes Finebaum, and indeed most of the media in the southeastern United States, is that much of the time, the SEC IS the joke. The problem is that the national writers seem to love the joke and think it is terribly amusing, although that didn't stop Georgia from firing Mark Richt for losing control of the joke.

You know, I like this. I like that we're having Marsupial Monday on Wednesday in the last week of OT season because that's the sort of OT season it has been.
Besides, it's next Monday in Tasmania, between the time change and the current currency exchange rate between the US and Australia, right?

So I created my funeral scene. And a lot of that had to do with the events of this past few weeks, it’s coming. It happens. We don’t know when it happens but we won’t cheat death.
Regarding cheating death, I am pretty sure that if you give Death a wad of cash and a nice automobile, you can at least put it off so long as he has eligibility. Of course, don't greyshirt Death because then it will remind you of your obligation to its own personal enrichment.
It is kind of interesting though - let's talk about results by staging the aftermath of the ultimate result.

Wasn't he scouted in high school by the Angels, Red Sox and perhaps a couple other teams? I remember hearing that somewhere but I could be wrong. In any case, as much as this seems like the standard "look at me and what I am doing over here" behavior from Tim Tebow, it will be interesting to see if indeed he can pick baseball up where he left it long ago and get himself a contract, even if for 15 minutes.

If you enter the appropriate information, you can get the state-by-state breakdown too. In the state of Michigan, for example, with 1,723 people voting so far:
24% Michigan State
6% Ohio State

OT - It's good to be Usain Bolt.
This seemed like it was going to go downhill in a hurry, given the tenor of the replies. Needless to say, anyone who can finish as quickly as Bolt should be....well, yeah, if he's as quick in bed as he is on the track, then it's probably better off being not a thread.

Well, I am definitely glad we had the definitive post on this particular board meme before the cut-off at 11:59:59 PM on Friday (just to clarify a question asked above). Wait, now is it the definitive thread on this subject? Perhaps there will be a thread tomorrow (please do the right thing and label that META since it will be about something on the board) regarding that? Only time will tell.

'One of the males entered the License Bureau and was waving his arms around. He then excited the business and began masturbating on the sidewalk.
It's so much easier if you simply bring your renewal paperwork with you to the bureau, or at least take a number and then run home and get the paperwork if possible. What this dude did seems like a measured, rational way to deal with daily difficulties.

I will say, however, that the troll / parody accounts that exist for the Huge Show are actually entertaining, which presents the issue - what does that mean when the people making fun of your show are more entertaining than the show itself? I am going to go out on a limb here and say it doesn't speak well for your show.

For all of last year, every time people would type his name several different ways and now I think it finally has struck me as to what the problem may have been. Clearly, what has been throwing people on this blog the entire time is that the third "d" is silent and sometimes not used in some alternative spellings of the name.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Like Others...||
Yeah, I'll agree with some of the other answers here - a Harbaugh-coached Gardner that never had to deal with the 2013 offensive line would have been a very interesting player indeed, or rather, even more fun perhaps. Same thing goes for Jake Ryan - if he were around for this particular set of players and this staff, we might have entire threads with just JMFR moments....from one game perhaps.

Now THAT would be a blog first.....possibly a blog last too. Pretty sure that thread costs this place a sponsor or two either way.
The fact that this was a thought that you had uneases me a little bit. OK, it uneases me a lot, and only because I would have to read it and moderate it and this is a free thing. That thread ould be the day I demand pay for this work.
