Not even close. I'm guessing you missed WD telling us he has to have Friday's off from work during football season to get mentally prepared for the game on Saturday.

Harbaugh + Religion + MSU scandal = Disaster (IMO)
|1 day 22 hours ago||You got one wrong at least||
That game against the Browns you've got penciled in for a W. Pretty sure my soon to be 16-0 Brownies cant go 16-0 if we lose that game so you'll need to flip that to an L

Dantonio would have to be accused and probably convicted himself of one of these crimes to get fired at MSU. He is the best cocah they've had since Duffy Daugherty, beat us more times in a row than any MSU coach in history and outside of last year had the Spartans in the national conversation as a semi-elite team.
If he goes 3-9 again this year and loses to us the rumblings will start but fired over this? No way.

Anybody heard from Section 1 lately? That dude could turn a Friday watcha drinking thread into a four paragraph deep dive into thel de-evolution of society norms caused by Title IX enforcement policies.

Part owner of a company that produces a medical device surgeons use and we support the cases intra-operatively. Random drug testing is in place for everyone (me included) and if somebody comes up dirty they lose their credentialling and access to the OR.
Not worth it so I'll just reminisce and take shit from you guys for being a pussy.
An employed pussy but a pussy none-the-less.

Random drug testing at work. And I like my job.

I DO miss getting high. I miss the sound of music when high (always awesome), the taste of food when high (also awesome just never enough of it) and I miss jokes when high cause everything and everybody is hillarious. And i miss sex when high.
To be clear sex is always awesome but if memory serives it's especially awesome when high.
I smoked a TON of pot from 1975-1981 but I think the last time I got stoned was about 15-20 years ago.

I'm an old white guy and dont do any of those things. Nor do any (to the best of knowledge) other old white guy friends. And I have a lot of old white guy friends.
Actually I find it to be quite the opposite. I find myself getting less rigid in my thinking as I get older and far less sure of my position on virtually any issue. This one included.
Do I like Kap sitting during the anthem? Not particlarly. Do I care a whole bunch? Not particularly. Do I understand why he feels the way he does? I think I do - doesnt mean I agree with his actions but I understand his frustrations. And lastly, would I love him in a Browns uniform? You bet I would.
Dont generalize - you're better than that.

And Kap has a right to sit during the national anthem in protest of what he believes to be injustice. Nobody can or should force him to stand.
And NFL teams have the right to not sign him as their QB because they dont agree with his protest and/or dont want all the baggage signing him would bring. Nobody can or should force them to sign him.

When I was in school we'd grab lunch trays from South Quad and go sledding down the aisles in the winter. We'd build up ramps in the snow to go flying out onto the field. And we'd play snow football on the field itself.

I knew immediately what you meant regarding the jury not "getting it wrong" and agree with you. Terrible prosecution that was dead in the water once their star witness's text messages were read to the jury. I was simply trying to head off the "but he was aquitted in the double homicide" responses.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Adam Schefter gave a nice eulogy to the scumbag||
Watching ESPN this morning and they led with this story (obviously) as soon as it broke at 7:00am. They had a long interview with Schefter and if you didnt know better you'd swear Hernandez was somehow the victim in this situaion and his suicide was the sad outcome of a person who simply a product of horrible circumstances he couldnt overcome.
He described the situation as "tragic" and said (paraphrasing here) that "no matter how hard Hernandez tried to escape his demons he was always dragged back into the gang life" which is complete and utter bullshit. There is 0.0 evidence that Hernandez tried to "escape" anything associated with thug life, rather he embraced it and ran TOWARDS it, not away.
Fuck him. Sorry he's a cold-blooded killer who executed two men for the crime of spilling a drink on him (sorry jury - you got it wrong) and then killed the one man who knew about it to keep him quiet.

Word on the street is B Cook has a sweet, sweet fix in place that will make everything much more better.
Here's me waiting for it.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Accountability - where is it?||
I find it facinating that the NCAA can seemingly operate without the faintest whiff of accountability for poor decision-making year after year afer year year. The same idiots who screwed up the formatting in the first place are still in charge, still making decisions and the fact that they can look at "crowds" such as this and not feel they've made a terrible mistake is mind-boggling to me.

All I know is Larry is at OUR house, not the Warriors. I know this because I got a picture taken with him this summer.

I'm on two Boards and it works great. Easy to use and reference and solves the exact problem you're having regarding documentation and referencing of past events.
And being 57 I'm pretty close to the top end of of mcd2005's date range and can attest he's right.
|5 days 20 hours ago||I was there and left happy||
And I'll be there again tonight. BTW - ask the Boston & Toronto fans if they'd like to trade for our crappy win.
And seriously Golden State "Defend our Ground"???? Not too terribly much IDENTICAL TO OUR "Defend the Land" slogan. Common guys...at least TRY and make it look original.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Some pretty sweet posts on the board today-sheesh||
I know what would brighten everybody's day and put the entire board in a good mood.
You guys are hoping I'll start a Cavs NBA playoff thread now don't you? Common....admidt it....a part of you (probably a big part of you in we're being honest with ourselves) really wants to talk Cleveland basketball!
Well everyone is going to have wait a bit cause I'm busy. In the meantime we can talk about whether our incumbent QB sucks or not and missing All-American players.

I know the OP is going to get hammered for the feelingspost BUT what he wrote regarding the QB play is just about exactly what my brother texted me who was there. I didnt see one snap (like WD said - it's just a glorified practice) but the OPs observations & my brothers sure matched up.
That being said I was one of those pushing hard for O'Korn last year and I couldnt have been more wrong on that one so I'm going to put my fandom/support behind whoever coach Harbaugh sticks behind center.
Oddly enough he seems to have a better handle on QB play than me. Go figure.

Hard for me to imagine them missing a call what with all the money they are undoubtably paid to do a game. As a matter of fact I had a meeting, just last week, with the M & A team at our firm and I asked one if he planned on staying in corporate acquisitions or moving in. He said "man....someday, if everything breaks right for me, I really hope to get a gig in college women softball umpiring. THATS where the really big money is"

My initial response was "who gives a fuck" then I remembered it was Easter and changed my post.

Somewhere between 55-70k. Say....oh i dunno....around 57,418
But I'm spitballing here so don't hold me to it.

Which was pretty damn cool IMO
|1 week 1 day ago||End thread||
Cause you're not going to see anything else of significance. Does anyone honestly think Harbaugh would "show" the world something they coudl use against him? This is just a glorified open practice with a scrimmage.

I'm 57 and I can tell you that DB is EXACTLY like most of the CEOs I've worked directly for through the years. I've a very nice living always being Tonto to somebody else's Lone Ranger (#2 guy in the last four companies I've worked for) and in each case the CEO was always 100% sure they were right on issues - even when presented wih mountains of evidence they were not.
In some ways that can help them - they dont duck and run easily - but in others it can be deadly. Too much to write here (I"m actually going to write a book on it someday soon) but the very thing that fueled them to the top of the organization (being right more times than wrong) can be their undoing.

I NEVER say stupid stuff. My every word is a pearl of wisdom you peons should consider yourself lucky to read.
Well maybe except for that one Kirk Cousins post. Or my defending or Rich Rod. Or that ONE time I might've mentioned that I gave up my season tickets (or was it two times?). Or perhaps my evolving position on Warde Manual.......
Other than that though pretty much bang on from me wouldnt you say?

|1 week 1 day ago||Call it the "Harbaugh Amendment"||
Pretty clear to me that the SEC, and its proxy the NCAA, are scared to DEATH of Harbaugh and are doing everything in their power to box him in. Virtually every rule change passed was aimed at limiting his exposure to those precious boys down south so they wont dream of travelling north of the Mason-Dixon line to attend college.
