that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

I absolutely have never said anything like she did in this video. This wasn't just a bit of gruffness. She went way over the line here - personally attacking the clerk in every way imaginable (education, weight, teeth, living). This was just plain bullying.

What do you think the clerk said to get McHenry to insult her weight, teeth and education? I can buy that she may have been a little rude but I can't possibly imagine she went that far.

That's pretty low.

Actually that was the number of tickets sold for the game.
From the article, 56,617 tickets were actually scanned (although apparently the technology for scanning tickets is iffy, so it might have been somewhat more than that).

He's had surgery on one hip. He'll probably get surgery on the other hip later on. That's where the timetable gets iffy.

A whopping TWO years removed from an NBA title (their sixth in eight years)! What diehards.

Why do you say that? He probably wasn't going to win much in Ellerbe's program and was an NBA lottery pick. The suspension eliminated any possibility of a return but I doubt he'd have ever stayed.

|5 days 9 hours ago||How is this for a stat-we had||
I don't like to pile on a fired coach, but the revisionism of those years is tiresome.
RichRod inherited most of a defense that had finished #11 in FEI 2007. In his first year we dropped down to #44, which seemed catastrophically bad by our standards and led to Shafer being undercut by midseason and then shown the door. Then in 2009, with new DC GERG running the show, we collapsed further to #60. This led to GERG being forced to run the 3-3-5 - and us finishing #109 in 2010.
Needless to say, Rich's defensive management left something to be desired. His best bet would have been to stay out of Shafer's way and let him run the show the whole time, but he kept panicking and interfering - and each panic move led to worse results.
My biggest criticism of Three and Out was that Bacon glossed over the defensive issues, despite the monster collapse and soap opera-esque stuff that reportedly went on behind the scenes.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Again, I think you are||
Again, I think you are missing the point that MSU used to actually win every few years. Under Carr's second-half tenure, the best they could do was come close, even when it was the focus of their entire season.
|5 days 10 hours ago||The people who still like RR||
I don't know about that. We've had our share of "Carr is the root of all evil and Rich died for his sins" posters.
RichRod attracted both hard-core admirers and haters, but I think most fans were in between. I cheered for him when he was here and hoped for the best, but after he was fired I moved on.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Sparty took us to OT twice in||
I don't think that's a fair point. During the 1980s and '90s, MSU beat us about once every 3-4 years. Lloyd beat them six straight times from 2002-07, so it's questionable to argue that our position in the rivalry was weakening.
Also, I don't think it's at all a certainty they'd have been favored in 2008 with Carr around. He never lost a home game to MSU. With Carr still around, we wouldn't have had as much attrition and there wouldn't have been the problem of guys not buying in (especially on defense). I think Carr probably could have squeaked out 6-7 wins.
This isn't to say that it was all RichRod's fault either. It was a combination of a lot of factors.

So for the U.S. we should say 1 in 4. It doesn't make sense to use the global average; you're not equally likely to be raped in Denmark as you are in Somalia.

|5 days 14 hours ago||In the four years before||
In the four years before RichRod, Arizona went 8-5, 8-5, 7-6 and 4-8. If he had started out by going 3-9 and 5-7, as he did here, I imagine he'd have been in a lot of hot water. Now, I'm guessing he wouldn't have been fired after the third year, but he would have been under a lot of scrutiny going into year 4.
|5 days 14 hours ago||The media, yes. But I don't||
The media, yes. But I don't think many fans had a problem with him when he was hired. I was at the Utah game in 2008 (his debut) and there was a lot of excitement in the air. Even when we lost, people were pretty encouraged by the performance.
(That Utah team went on to go 12-0 and we took them down to the wire . . . odd to think about in retrospect.)

But one could argue that it's a lot harder to win at Oregon State (especially now that Oregon is a powerhouse) than it is at Nebraska.
Also, Pelini and the AD apparently didn't get along at all.

Not to mention that we're ridiculing them for doing the same thing we love to do (watch college football).
Good for them for drawing that huge crowd.

Wait a minute. I bought this from a Nigerian seller and he told me it was Harbaugh's chair!
But it can't be a scam, right? I mean, mine came with a Certificate of Authenticity. It did spell his name as "Harbaw" but I'm sure that doesn't mean anything . . . right?

That might have a bit to do with the fact that we had Ellerbe and Amaker as our coaches for 10 years. Not a lot of player development happened that decade.

Hmmm, what about Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr., Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas? They were pretty good as freshmen.
