...but I have to go with Three Days of the Condor.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||USC||
I can't figure out why they aren't better than their record. they have NFL talent at almost every position. they don't have a ton of depth because of the sanctions and the smaller classes a couple of years back, but there is a ton of talent everywhere.
It shouldn't be that hard to find a halfway decent coach who can get them to 10 or 11 wins.

I'll take it. Some nailbiting early, but no booger eating.
|49 weeks 6 days ago||Ugh...beats||
Beats are such garbage that they've added metal components whose only job is to make them heavier...seeming like better headphones.
Sony MDR-7506 are about $99 and are excellent headphones. If you want to drop $300 on Sennheisers or those Bose noise cancelling cans, they're TERRIFIC headphones. That's a bit more money than I have to spend, but if your budget can handle it, they are great.

That first album was amazing. It took me a few years to get around to Nirvana. I was much more in the PJ camp at the start.
Alternative music became a parody of itself after awhile, but those first few years were really something special.

Clemson is one of the dirtiest programs in the country. They ran Ken Hatfield out of the program because he WOULDNT cheat.

My freshman year in college....
|1 year 21 weeks ago||inexcusable||
Consdering how dire the circumstances are, it's inexcusable for the officials to be so random on calls/non-calls.
Eliminate the idiotic rule and just allow refs to call a personal foul. No reason for a bad call to linger until the next game.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||My dog is here beside me||
My dog did not get hit by a car today. I did not bury my father today. No one I know and love was told that they have cancer today.
My team lost a game. They will lose more. Thankfully, they will win more than they lose. And today's loss will just make that those wins that much sweeter.
Sleep well, friends.

I made it through Game Six in '86.
Being a sports fan is often a poor bargain. The losses seem to hurt more than the wins feel good.
You don't ever get over it. It just becomes a part of who you are.
The bright side? I don't know. Universal cooling? The sweet release of death?

He's one of us.
You win as a team. You lose as a team. The wins are sweeter because we did them together. We soften the losses by comforting one another.
If you're going to crap on Blake O'Neill, kindly go ***k yourself.

We must find comfort in the bitter tang of words such as "Wait 'till next year!" We must remind ourselves that it took a herculean effort by a top-10 team and a brief intervention by the gods to beat us.
We must also remember what a friend told me when I got divorced: "Whisky helps."
Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes it rains.

I'm stuck at work for the next four hours. If anyone has a link to a live feed, I would be most appreciative.

Morton coaches WRs and Drevno coaches the OL.

I guess Peyton Manning's NOT the greatest QB of all time? Ridiculous that people were saying if he won THIS game the debate was over.

I'm having the same problem on chrome. Boo.

Wondering if anyone has a link to the game online?? Firstrowsports has a plug-in ad over the screen. I can hear it....but not see it.

Felman Malveaux...there's a name. I vaguely remember hearing buzz about what he was doing at practice.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||No....||
He was an absolute disaster at NC State. They called him "No Endzone."
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Hellllooooo Heisman!||
Remember that punt return very, very well.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Oh well.||
Good luck to him. Hope he gets a degree and doesn't end up in the Saban Memorial Hospital.

I sure am going to miss college sports when everybody "fixes" it.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||late score||
If you took Clemson and the points, that 23 play, 84 yard drive might have screwed it up for you.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||TV||
The people in charge of the networks won't be happy until all of college sports are nothing but a smouldering ruin.
Fox Sports...they have admitted that they don't care about the game. it merely serves as a backdrop onto which they project commercials for other things. Then during those other things, they run more commercials.
Then there's Mickey Mouse and their meme-factory. And now this from CBS.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||BTW||
DIdn't they just build the Dolphins a new stadium recently? Why do they need a new one?
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Same here||
Publicly-supported football stadiums are a terrible idea. There are any number of position papers that back that up too.

The guy who wrote the "**** My Dad Says" blog wrote a good piece about sports and fans. During a tantrum during the Chargers' Superbowl loss in the 90s, he broke a pretty expensive bottle of hooch that his dad had been saving. After recovering from his anger, his dad reminded him that the players on his favorite team didn't give a damn about him. Why did he care so much about them?
I have to admit, several years ago, my mood was totally dictated by the fortunes of the teams I followed. Once, after a terrible loss, I had my weekend destroyed. It ended up destroying the next week and the following weekend. After the season, I realized that I envied people who didn't like sports. The losses hurt worse than the wins felt good. It had become a bad bargain.
So...I've spent the years after that turning the volume down. I still like sports. It just no longer dictates my mood. It is, as someone once said, just a game.
If you find yourself dressing up like a really crappy superhero and making hype videos where you talk trash to N. Dakota State...maybe you're not spending your time well. Maybe try taking a walk...get some exercise...get rid of those idiotic tattoos. Maybe try and kiss a girl once in awhile. Move out of your mom's basement and try getting a job too.
Hey, back in the day, I was a deadhead. Spent way too much time and money travelling the country and seeing the Grateful Dead. As Jerry Garcia said, "If the only thing you have in your life is the Grateful Dead, you don't have much."
Same could be said for football fans.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Controversy?||
It's controversial to assert that Southern Cal football gives illegal benefits to recruits?? I think you could throw a dart at a USC roster ten times and hit a guy who received illegal benefits with every throw.
