to play football, not to play trumpet

|2 days 4 hours ago||The Clemson people need to get a grip||
My sister lives in Lexington, SC. They get ice storms. They get hurricanes. Oh yeah, and it's as humid as...well, use your imagination.
I live in central Texas and the weather is far better in total than either SC or SE Michigan. By their logic, UT should get every player they want.

My freshman year as well. Go Blue.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Amen||
Was happy I could thank him in person in Utah. Outstanding work.
|1 week 2 days ago||Congratulations Cook family!||
My son Desmond Carter approves of the name. Blessings to all of you!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Generally sparse crowd||
Lots of tickets given to the military.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Halftime meetup for those at the game?||
Would love to meet any other MGoBrethren here.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Warmup notes||
Onwenu is a large human being. Seems like a lot of his weight is on his lower half.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||At the game, Sec 115 front row||
Right in front of the "announce" area. Currently three hats on the table, Bama, Michigan, and Georgia (appears to be set up for Nauta) (?)
|16 weeks 1 day ago||No beef rib fan's life is||
No beef rib fan's life is complete without visiting the Louie Mueller BBQ in Taylor, TX (near Austin). I'm fortunate enough to live within driving distance and can honestly say that not only is theirs the best beef rib in existence, it's the best smoked meat of any kind anywhere. The average beef rib there is 1.75lbs (!).

Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati. Dump of dumps, but winning the '96 title game made it oh, so worth it.

Simply because the dry-rub / barking technique doesn't work quite as well on that type of meat. I've seen it done, but most prefer the sauce method.
When we talk about BBQ down here, the default subject is brisket unless something else is specified. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||My vote for best BBQ sauce around Austin||
Surprisingly, I think it's the one thing Salt Lick does better than anyone. Their Spicy variety is the absolute bomb.
Second place is Louie Mueller's jalapeno pulled pork sauce. Phenomenal.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
We, the consumers, are the winners.
My vote if you include nearby towns is Louie Mueller in Taylor. Wayne's beef rib is still the best meat I've ever put in my mouth (and I've put a lot in my piehole). I'd put it up against anything in Austin proper, now or previous.
If you've never been to Snow's in Lexington, go. The pork steak is beyond awesome. Dare I say, Harbaugh-level?
|32 weeks 2 days ago||We have a saying down here.||
"Saucin' is cheatin'."
The general rule for BBQ enthusiasts and pitmasters alike (at least around here) is that even though they may provide sauce, it's for northerners/out-of-towners and is not to be consumed. There's a suspicion that if you push meat with sauce, you're either not a very good pitmaster or you're using low-quality meat.
I've found that one or both of those is true in the vast majority of cases where sauce is provided on the meat.
Doubt me all you want on the Top5 thing -- next time you're down here I'd be happy to host you and like so many before, you'll believe me afterwards.

Hands-down. Trust me, I live here.
Aaron Franklin is a marketing machine, but he has been surpassed in the art of BBQ.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Salt Lick is AT MOST 5th best in just Austin alone||
...let alone the world. It is, however, better than any BBQ in Chicago.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Any reason why you seed .ts files?||
Seems like running them through a MP4 compressor wouldn't lose much and would be roughly 1/4 the size. 12GB is a lot to download/seed to the masses.
Just my $.02.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Bullying is an issue||
We just decided to pull our 12 and 8 year olds in favor of LUOA (online homeschool). The public schools give a lot of lip service to anti-bullying, but there's little to no follow-through. Very disappointing considering how highly rated the school systems are.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I live in Lakeway and I strongly agree||
We live in The Hills to be exact. I let my kids play outside unsupervised and have zero fear. Where else is that even possible? People respect and look out for one another. A truly rare thing these days.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Detroit Detroits||
If I recall, the current incarnation of that baseball club is called the Detroit Tigers. Not surprised we got hammered.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Sports Management 140: Theory and Practice of Football||
Winter Term, 1992.
Lecturers: Lloyd Carr, Gary Moeller, Cam Cameron and the rest of the staff (each gave 1-2 lectures during the term)
Best part was having access to spring practice and film sessions. One session in particular I remember was sitting next to Collins/Grbac while they were breaking down film with the coaches. Football porn.

Let me assure you, that man never pays for a drink, a meal, or a cover charge in NYC. And never will. Ever.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||That would be Joe Morgan.||
I had the pleasure of meeting him recently. Surprisingly short in stature.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||As was I.||
Seems like that's a popular place to stick unknowing freshmen. I ran to WQ as soon as I could.
|2 years 1 week ago||Taking that into account||
This isn't my first rodeo.
|2 years 1 week ago||Saw him in person last night||
Not out of place, but didn't exude superstar to me. Solid NHL blue liner at this point. Room to grow for sure.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I attended the game against Iowa State||
That team is legit and I'll be shocked if Texas or Oklahoma stays within 14 points of them. They're not Kansas State of past years - they are GOOD.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||WiFi at large stadiums is coming very soon||
Levi's Stadium (the new 49ers stadium opening next fall) will have coverage for every seat in the stadium -- there are high-end connectivity devices available that support far more than 255 clients at full bandwidth.
They're using WiFi as the delivery method for replays, extra live camera angles, and a custom app that gives you bathroom and concession lines among other services.
Full disclosure: my company is a founding sponsor of Levi's Stadium so I have some KNOWLEDGE of this topic.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Michigan fans in Austin, TX||
...will be pretty unruly if the game isn't available at the usual local establishment. I have a feeling there will be a way to watch on DirecTV.
We don't care about Texas -- and most of the UT alums around here are starting to agree with us.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Was at the UT game last night||
I live about 20 minutes from DKR so I went down to check out the tire fire that the Texas football program is quickly becoming - the alums are at their wits' end. That team plays with zero intensity and the fans know it. Not a good situation.
