"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

I never thought in a million years I'd know what it feels like to be a Purdue fan.
I dont like feeling like a Purdue fan.
|7 hours 47 min ago||Seven years ago Brady Hoke||
Seven years ago Brady Hoke wasn't a head coach here yet.
|8 hours 57 min ago||Denard looked REAL good||
Denard looked REAL good today. Stuck his nose into the pile for three yards when that's all was there and had a couple of nice runs that could've gone for a LOT more if things had broken his way a bit.
Typical Browns effort though. We're doing well - MUST. FIND. WAY. TO FAIL. MUST. FIND. WAY. TO. FUCK. THINGS. UP.
It's a law here or something.
|9 hours 18 min ago||Beats me. the great Brian||
Beats me. the great Brian Hoyer sure didnt target him. The one bright spot is I wont have to hear how fucking fantastic he is this week. Pretty sure 18 for 50 (his stats the past two weeks) will cool down the talk of his greatness for a bit.
|9 hours 23 min ago||Good fucking lord. So Poyer||
Good fucking lord. So the guy not only fumbles the punt but does so while trying to field a ball on his 2 yard line. If the dude took a Wonderlic I'm guessing he didnt get into double digits - probably got about an 8.
How could somebody be THAT stupid and function in society? Seriously - that might've been the dumbest play I've seen.

15 carries for 90 yards. Fuck the Browns. jesus they are so damn frustrating.
|10 hours 35 min ago||But, but the CHILDREN! They||
But, but the CHILDREN! They deserve state of the art facilities and state of the art coaching cause - well - cause they do that's why. Never mind they dont have the money to pay for it and never mind the fact that they are fucking chocking the golden goose to squeeze enough money out out of football so they can - they need the worlds' fanciest locker room cause THIS IS MICHIGAN.
I love that the very people who bitch when people give up their season tickets are the same folks that want the donor money tree to extend forever so they can fund all the shit THEY find important. Well I opted out so you'll need to raid the wallets of some other sap to pay for the new facilities for the sports nobody but players parents attend.
|10 hours 46 min ago||This SO typical Cleveland.||
This SO typical Cleveland. There's a like a collective effort to NOT win that permeates everything. It's so fucking frustrating it's unreal. They're going to lose to Jacksonville cause Hoyer cant figure out how to play worth a fucking shit before we're down by 25 points.
FUCK, FUCK, FUCK

21 yard gain. Now 7 carries for 63 yards!
|11 hours 49 min ago||6 carries for 42 yards.||
6 carries for 42 yards. Looking VERY good right now.

He's down now. Took a pretty hard shot from Whitmer on a crossing route. Bortles pass left his totally exposed.
Whoops - wrong Robinson. Allen, not Denard.
|12 hours 7 min ago||3 carries for 18 yards so||
3 carries for 18 yards so far. Hitting the hole with authority.
|13 hours 32 min ago||I'll be watching here in||
I'll be watching here in Cleveland. Hope he does well but not TOO well if you know what I mean.
|16 hours 12 min ago||In other words exactly like||
In other words exactly like Harbaugh had in 2008. And it's not like Muschamp had a long history of successful head coaching when hired there. Mullen, according to my employee, is still pretty chafed he didn't get the nod over the flavor of the month coordinator.
|16 hours 16 min ago||When I opened the thread I||
When I opened the thread I thought it was going to be about Michigan winning cause that's the "B1G I used to know" not wining like a little girl over mean ole Ohio State putting their boot on the throat of a team that just beat us.
|16 hours 43 min ago||Not sure about that. One of||
Not sure about that. One of my employees is an ex-football player at Florida and he says the relationship between Mullen and Florida is not good at all.

Ohio State is now up 42-7 on a team we lost to. Think about that for a bit. The gap between us and them is breathtaking.
|1 day 8 hours ago||We are going to get||
We are going to get completely and utterly jailsexed by Ohio State. Good Lord it's like watching a different sport than the abomination we call football
|1 day 9 hours ago||Ohio State keeps CHEATING.||
Ohio State keeps CHEATING. They are snapping the ball with about 15-20 seconds to go on the play clock and Rutgers isn't ready. So not fair.
|1 day 12 hours ago||In fairness to Hoke he DOES||
In fairness to Hoke he DOES reposition himself closer to the ball when he stands there with his arms folded with no clipboard, no headset and doing nothing.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Thank God for the heads up||
Thank God for the heads up earlier in he thread. The wife (who DEFINITELY "celebrates this stuff") asked if I'd run up to the general store for some OJ and while there I grabbed a "I love you" card.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Been there dude-Better days||
Been there dude-Better days ARE on the way. Took me just short of 25 years to figure out that I didn't have to live with an abusive, angry alcoholic so you're 18 years smarter than me.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I think he's going to||
I think he's going to survive. I dont want this to happen but I think that's what will happen. He's going to get his wrist slapped and told to place nice with students and alums and he'll make some concessions (they started yesterday with the student ticket pricing rollback) and everybody will go back to doing what they were doing before the Morris concussion shit-storm errupted.
Hoke is going to win 4 more games this year and finish 7-6 and WILL be back next year with the promise of a better day ahead. Funk, Jackson and Wellman will all probably get the boot though to try and appease the mob just like the sacrifice of Borges last year accomplished.

First the protest and now the survey.
Do the students have any mercy in them at all? Dave's feelings have got to be REALLY hurt by all this.
|3 days 9 hours ago||What's the story here?||
That we're really not that good?
I dunno - just a guess.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Which survey are they||
Which survey are they referring to Bando? The season ticket holder survey from last year or a different one?
Cause if it's last year's at least I got my shots in.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Maybe. Dont underestimate||
Maybe. Dont underestimate though Brandon's belief that it's schedule plus less than steller results on the field that's creating the attendance issue - not pricing. If he remains in control and Hoke shows improvement through the balance of the year (as incremental as it might be) I think they both return and Brandon bets heavy on people wanting to see both MSU & OSU in person.
I know it's definitely not what just about everyone wants but we dismiss the possibility at our peril. As Eric correctly states above - we MUST keep the pressure on the President and the Regents that the current situation is untenable and must be changed. Remember - the party line is "if we were winning nobody would care about who the AD is" so many will be looking for the rancor to diminish if that happens.
|3 days 13 hours ago||I keep saying do not be||
I keep saying do not be shocked if the AD & HC next year look an awful lot like the AD & HC we have this year. I dont want this to happen but I wouldnt be surprised if it did happen.

I so LOVE that Blast. What a perfect response.
FWIW - I have a similar approach to people (usually kids) who want me to donate money for their cause based on whatever stupid thing they plan to do for the weekend. "Hey - we're going to walk in circles all weekend - will you sponser us at X dollars per stupid lap we walk?"
My response is "I will match a paycheck instead. Go get a job at a fast foot resturant - all of them are always hiring - and work there for a couple of weeks. You donate your paycheck to the cause and I'll match it."
That almost always ends the discussion. They dont want to actually have to WORK to raise money - they want to do fun things and have me donate.
