The CIL live blog was awesome last year; it made watching the games without other Michigan fans around much more fun. Twitter could be ok, but there will be the problem of trolls and that you only get 140 characters to comment. For some of the stats updates that the moderators would put out, that may be a problem.

Don't forget Mad Men is also a part of that lineup once Season 5 starts this spring. I don't know who has a better lineup, the Detroit Tigers or AMC.
|2 years 1 day ago||Precedent||
USC was always going to be the precedent that most assumed the NCAA would use in this situation.They are similar situations in the same sport. USC had one assistant coach know of one player receiving illegal benefits. OSU had their head coach know and cover up the illegal benefits received by 5 players.
The only "WOW" worthy aspect of this episode is that OSU got nothing close to USC's punishment when it is obvious to everyone outside of Columbus and Indianapolis that OSU deserved much worse. As an OSU fan, you should be thankful that you benefitted from the NCAA's incompetence and hope that evidence of further violations doesnt come out.

I have never been for dinner, but Court of Two Sisters has the best jazz brunch I have ever had. All you can drink mimosa's for the table, a masssive buffett that is filled with delicious cajun and brunch food, and an excellent omelet stand. After you load up your plate, you sit in a courtyard that is covered by spanish moss trees. Its all you can eat and drink (I think), so it is worth every penny if you have a copule hours to sit, enjoy the scenery, and eat amazing food.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Great List||
As a NOLA resident for 2 1/2 years now, I completely agree with everything on the list. A couple of additions:
Pat O'Briens: I think they invented the Hurricane, so get one here. They have multiple bars, a nice courtyard that has plenty of seating and is heated so you can be out there anytime of year, as well as a pretty cool dueling piano bar in the back. On Bourbon Street, but not like most Bourbon Street bars.
Goldmine: The F&M's/Grits of the French Quarter. Open till everyone leaves, which very often is after the sun comes up. If you are looking to hook up, this is a pretty good place to go. When you first get there, do a round of Flaming Dr. Pepper shots and then have a real good time.
W.I.N.O: If you like wine or will be bringing the Mrs, this is a good place to pre-game before heading out to the louder bars/clubs in the area.
Lucy's: During the day, they have cheap drinks, pretty good burgers, and a bunch of games on. At night, they still have the cheap drinks, but people are dancing on the tables.
Uptown Place to Avoid
The Boot: unless you are underage, do not go here. It is on Tulane's campus, and is the underage bar. There will likely be high school kids in the bar asking you to buy drinks for them.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Decent Fit||
I think Tulane would be a pretty good fit for RR. Not only does he have previous ties to the program, but he could obviously recruit the kids that he wants from the South. In addition, Tulane is in the process of trying to build an on-campus stadium and bringing in a high-profile coach such as RR would help that effort. Right now, the program has no buzz, the game day atmosphere is terrible since they play in the SuperDome and the team sucks. RR could change that and rebuild a program that many thought wouldn't come back after Katrina. As a Tulane student, I am hoping we can hire him.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Janitor||
That is covered in Victim 8 of the indictment. The janitor was a Korean war vet who was a temporary employee. Walked in on Sandusky sexaully assaulting a kid in the showers. The indictment stated that the janitor was inconsolable and that his co-workers feared that he would have a heart attack. I think the indictment quoted the janitor as mentioning things he saw in Korea, but never seeing evil like that. In addition, Sandusky evidently left with the kid after the shower, then returned alone to the parking lot and stayed throughout the night while the janitorial staff was still inside. Not trying to excuse the failure to report on behalf of the janitor (they may have reported it to their supervisor, but I don't remember from the indictment), just trying to provide additional context.

Should go with everclear in honor of losing to Iowa+refs. Thats what Tubes would do.

Actually, I really like Taylor Battle for PSU. He is the one bright spot on that terrible squad.
|3 years 1 week ago||New HC a former DC||
I think the OP stated that Ok St.'s current DC would take the WVU HC position. Its unlikely that he would keep around Casteel who I think runs a different defense then Ok St.

What a great way to describe the media love of favre
|3 years 1 week ago||Really?||
How much time did you spend actually wondering about this? First, no one in the pro's has run anything close to RR's offense as their base offense. Second, the Lions franchise qb, Matt Stafford, is getting paid a huge amount of money because he has all the skills to be an effective pro-style qb. I doubt the Lions would hire RR so they can have Stafford running the zone read.
The only team I could see your absurd scenario working with is the Bronco's. They have Tebow, and their other quarterbacks (Orton and Quinn) can probably be traded (Orton) or cut (Quinn) pretty easily.
|3 years 1 week ago||Perfect way to think about||
Amazing that this is actually a discussion. Old Record + a Winter Classic at Fenway is probably the best way to think about it. The record for the most attended hockey game was set yesterday and will stand until we decide to hold another outdoor hockey game (hopefully next year).

Not sure if "extremely anal" is the setting OP wants. Could get him in really big trouble.

Do you think his wife made him post this? Perhaps watched from behind as he wrote it up and saved it? I hope thats how he got out of the dog house. He gets peace at home, and we get this awesome thread.

Two days ago, I saw a hipster chick rocking a hornets starter jacket in the library. My roommate and I just stared then laughed as we walked away. Not sure how I feel about starter jackets becoming the new hipster thing.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Weill||
I do miss studying in Weill. My last two years I don't think I went to the UGLI or Grad to study. The second floor conference room was my favorite spot to study on campus. Great view of State St. and the Law School, big table, bright lights, and multiple chalk boards.

I have Energy Reg, then Admiralty 1
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Wait till you finish the last one||
There is nothing like the feeling you will have once you finish that last 1L first semester exam. You will not know what to do for about 10 minutes, then you will start drinking. Having all that stress just disappear is incredible.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Law School Finals||
Finished Evidence Monday, Energy Reg Thursday, then 3 more after that. Looking forward to drinks on my flight home on Dec 17 makes studying tolerable. Does anyone else get the feeling before exams that you just can't wait to take them. Not excited, just an anxiousness to get them over with.

This cake needs the new towers added, preferably filled with chocolate.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Danielson||
I will take Musberger and Herbstreit any day of the week and twice on Sunday before Lunquist and Danielson. First you have Danielson's ridiculousness during the 2006 SEC Championship Game. Second, Danielson just doesn't provide good insight into the game, why some players are doing well, others aren't, why a strategy isn't or is working etc. Instead, he mostly fawns over the best player on both teams, and comments continuously about how the SEC is the toughest conference in the country. On the other hand, Herbstreit, though a buckeye, provides quality analysis every game and I never seem to notice any bias from him (though some on this board seem to notice it). Lundquist and Musberger are both quality play-by-play, but I give Musberger the slight edge just because I associate him with college football and I associate Lundquist with March Madness.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Oregon's Identity||
At this point, Oregon's identity is having all of these crazy combo's. Some of them are awesome, some are awful. Either way, I think its pretty awesome for Oregon. However, it must suck for Oregon fans who want to buy a jersey, since there are so many different types. I wonder if Oregon fans bet on what the combo for each game?

I believe Ben Franklin is the wise man who came up with that very true quote.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Probably Stays the Same||
I assume that if RR does leave the blog will support the next coach. And when the next coach doesn't win the National Championship next year and people begin demanding that he gets fired, it will continue to be a sane place on the internet to discuss Michigan Football.

If he does commit to Alabama, it will be telling if he says he will enter school early still or wait till the end of the year. If he is going to stay for his last hs semester, maybe its just a sign that he is hedging his bet regarding RR. If he is going to start early at bama, than I am going to have a sad.
