My God, this whole deal is really f'n stupid.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Cool #HotSportsTake Bro||
What a hacky, pandering piece of work.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Oh snap I forgot||
Eric Stonestreet - Cameron from Modern Family - is a K-State grad. Wouldn't be shocked if he's on the sideline and interviewed during the game...
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Upvote||
But only for the video
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Congrats to them||
And we should be sufficiently motivated to knock them on their @sses next season in East Lansing...

THERE'S the punch to the soul dong that we were looking for today...
|2 years 11 weeks ago||It wasn't necessarily "UM themed" (SPOILER ALERT)||
Two people on the show, Rashida Jones (who plays Ann Perkins) and Rob Lowe (who plays Chris Traeger) are being written out of the show, and in the storyline they are moving to Ann Arbor, where IIRC Chris says he has a new job lined up at Michigan, which is why he said "Go Blue!" I thought it was great.
It should also be noted that the character Councilman Jeremy Jamm, D.D.S. is played by Jon Glaser, a Michigan graduate.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I'm sorry, but I just don't understand the||
"He should wear a headset Y U NO WEAR HEAD SET?" contingent. Like, what exactly is not being communicated to Al that Devin can't communicate to him when we see him talking to someone on the phone on the sidelines? Or is that just Devin ordering a pizza? And does Al not see the same game Brady and everyone else is seeing? Can he not make adjustments to the game plan as needed? Does he need the head coach's permission to make in-game adjustments? And what exactly does Hoke barking at Al Borges on a headset do except give some people a sense of relief/satisfaction that "the coach is doing something," which in this case would simply be yelling at his offensive coordinator when plays go bad? And I don't exactly buy the "it would show that they're in constant communication" argument, either. Borges sees the game, he talks to Devin, and apparently there's someone who is near Brady who has access to Borges if Brady needs it. So yeah, I'm just not on board with this whole "why is he not wearing a HEADSET dammit!" deal...

I welcome any and all references to it in any kind of writing. Nicely done.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I never thought that an episode of TV would top||
the "University" episode of The Sopranos (the one about Ralphie and the stripper) for brutal and unrelenting darkness, but this episode topped THAT one in terms of darkness. I only had a problem with Rian Johnson's direction of the fight between Walt and Skyler, as well as a quibble about Walt Jr.'s performance during the scene with Skyler and Marie, but I think that's me finding it hard to buy a 20/21-year old guy trying to play an emotional teenager (Walt Jr. is around 17/18 on the show, which has only covered about a year's time in the course of its 5 seasons)...
This was fantastic television, and we've still got two more episodes left...
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Warms my heart to see this||
Granted, they still have to prove it out on the field, but I'm loving the accountability to the point where Taylor's disagreeing with Devin about whose fault this was...
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Well, to be fair, the NBA wasn't running||
"Hey, man, don't say 'That's Gay'!!!" commercials starring Grant Hill 3 years ago... right or wrong, someone in the NBA office equated "no homo" with "That's Gay," and here we are with Mr. Hibbert...
|2 years 35 weeks ago||It's not necessarily about being misinterpreted||
Usually when someone says "no homo," it's done in a "joking" manner, as in "ha ha, don't take what I said as being gay, tee hee wink wink"
It's rather juvenile
Hibbert was less concerned with his words being interpreted correctly than he was with being funny. He thought he was making a jokey joke, failed miserably and paid the price as a result
He should have just said "Pause" like Spike did...

One of my favorite quotes from him regarding film writing is "It's not what a film is about, but how it is about it."
He will be missed.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||I'm already working in Atlanta||
I'm just on the lookout for a couple of tickets to Saturday's and Monday night's action
|2 years 45 weeks ago||We caged the Jayhawk!||
Bacari was right!!!!!!!
I'm like Steve Kerr, I don't believe what I just saw...
|2 years 46 weeks ago||No. Why?||
Because no, that's why.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Peee-Yew||
That wasn't "good Wisconsin defense" at all, that was all terrible shot selection and turnovers. Good Lord.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||The Soul Dong strikes again||
This is the kind of loss that makes one want to have a drink, or 70, even though I have to be at work at 8am...

So shall it be.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||As someone who watches Laker games I can tell you||
that Darius is not doing himself any favors out there on the court. Blame Kobe's ball-hogging all you like, but that's not the problem with Darius. The problem with Darius is that he tries to do too much with the ball. His play is best described as being "aggressively out of control" at times. There are moments when he runs the offense efficiently, and takes decent shots, but IMO they have been few and far between. And he's a bit of a liability on the defensive end, but that's been covered up by the fact that the Lakers as a whole are an awful defensive team.
He's far too inconsistent on both ends of the floor at this stage of the game, when some stability is seriously needed at the point guard position; hence, Duhon's starting and other possessions where Kobe is the guy bringing the ball up court. It also helps, of course, that Duhon is familiar with D'Antoni's offensive system and can direct guys to their proper positions in the set.
Darius seems to be willing to learn and improve as a player (he has praised Kobe and others on the team for being great teachers), and he apparently gets high marks from teammates for that reason, but the reality is that it's tough to learn on the fly while playing for a franchise with astronomically high expectations of not just winning, but winning RIGHT NOW.
I think it's only a matter of time before he's traded. I don't think that he should be, since he gives the Lakers some athleticism that they are sorely lacking. The only way it's justified is if the Lakers get some better athleticism/shooting/decent defense in return.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||We know. ESPN is currently reminding us every 5 minutes.||
I especially love the live pub report from South Bend
I wish I were making that up
I hate life right now
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Yeah, we're not going to do that.||
Not gonna happen. Sorry.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Beat Ohio||
|3 years 50 weeks ago||I thought that he and Dan Schulman called a decent game||
I found myself agreeing with a few of Bilas' thoughts on the flopping that our guys were doing... but he was also quick to note when Ohio players got away with travels and fouls as well... and come on, he joked how he "committed" when he walked onto the Michigan Stadium football field, saying that it was "really neat" and he also seemed to really dig Denard, calling him "a great quarterback" and "a great kid" and talking about how fun he was on Gameday... point being, he didn't have it in for us as much as this thread is trying to suggest...
|4 years 5 weeks ago||I've only seen the second half but I'm wondering||
Al Borges has declined to call play action on 1st down because... why?
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Good luck to Rich Rod||
I'm out here in L.A. so hopefully I'll be able to catch a few Arizona games on TV out here. I'll be rooting for him.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Put this scene on a loop||
Tanner is my hero
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I yell at people||
Then I play videogames where I can "avenge" the losses
Okay, not really
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Terrible officiating, no doubt, but||
the refs weren't the ones calling run plays into Iowa's 8-man defensive front
The refs weren't the ones who decided to go to the spread when only when we were down late
Sorry, guys, I know we're all incredibly frustrated, but for me it's not just with the officiating, but also with our offensive coordinator, who just refuses to get out of his own way
