|1 hour 20 min ago||Exactly.||
Nothing in the horesehit corporate debacle that is the NFL ever remotely captivates like this.
|1 hour 27 min ago||Congratulations West Point Cadets!||
I can't believe how much fun that game was to watch. I miss old-timey option football, and the drama of the Army drought was just great television.
Plus, Army doesn't have the structural advantages of Navy vis-a-vis bending admission requirements through the feeder prep schools. NYT had an interesting writeup on Navy's system today, worth a read (LINK).

|1 day 6 hours ago||Damn, great highlight vid on Hawkins.||
Young man, I dub thee Brad "Ball" Hawkins.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Should be called the Ray Finkle award.||
|2 days 21 hours ago||Oh hells yes.||
This is the kind of difference-making athlete that you need to beat the Alabamas of the world. Amazing get.
Happy, happy, joy, joy!
|2 days 23 hours ago||I'll have what he's having.||
|2 days 23 hours ago||You can always supplement with this.|
|3 days 4 hours ago||Try it both ways.||
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Asiasi.||
He is the rock that knocks.
|4 days 34 min ago||Hail, Shane Morris||
Who knows how differently things could have turned out if he'd had his senior H.S. season back and some competent coaching early on at M. Never seen better physical tools on a Michigan passer. Hope they find occasion to let him toss a couple of 70-yd rainbows just for shits and giggles against FSU.
He might have changed Michigan history by standing in there against the oncoming rush vs. Minnesota and getting creamed by that late headshot. He showed guts, paid the price, and what an incredible set of dominoes began to fall that would immediately change the direction of the program at what otherwise felt like an all-time low.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Is that Paul Blart?||
Wondered what he did before that mall gig.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Interesting.||
Didn't know he played quarterback.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Too soon.||
|1 week 2 days ago||What he said on election day||
was that it was almost entirely dependent on which way Florida was going to go. He said if you give Trump Florida, he had a 56% overall win probability given the margin of error on other states.
He knew shit. I heard it with my own ears.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm heading to Pac-12 title||
I'm heading to Pac-12 title game tomorrow (I live 2 miles from the stadium) and StubHub is significantly tighter than that. Still paid about half face value, though.
|1 week 2 days ago||Something like this...||
The Black Swan. What a great book. No, not the basis for the psycho-sexual ballet movie starring Natalie Portman.
|1 week 2 days ago||No.||
Nate Silver was actually throwing warning signs all over the place the week before the election. He went on a 14-tweet tweetstorm directed against the NYT and other websites with election predictions showing a 90% probability of a Clinton win. Anyone who was following his model saw a virtual tossup the night before.
So, to summarize: no.
|1 week 3 days ago||There's only one reasonable explanation.||
He's stuck in a Groundhog Day-type time vortex and he's got the timing of this down after hundreds of reps. He then spends the rest of the day blowing the gold flakes on cocaine and strippers. Every day. Like Bill Murray should have instead practicing piano and memorizing french poetry, damnit.
|1 week 3 days ago||I would have gone with comparison to DRC||
i/o Angola. Sure, you may know it Democratic Republic of Angola. But she'll always be Zaire to me.
|1 week 3 days ago||Was expecting the surveillance footage to spot this guy||
Me Gold! Me Gold!
|1 week 3 days ago||Not so sure it's defensible.||
Tech companies in Silicon Valley recently were fined hundreds of millions of dollars for restraining movement of employees from one to another. They put immense resources into training those people and exposed them to proprietary trade secrets, and that's still no justification for telling people where they can and can't go. The only such restraints I'm in favor of apply to the revolving door of politicians/lobbyists, and this isn't that.
|1 week 3 days ago||True.||
But we're not talking Nate Montana, either. That was fun while it lasted, wasn't it?
|1 week 3 days ago||It's not a good thing||
that 4-7 are so close. That could be interpreted as just setting the table for "all things being roughly equal, you pick the conference champion." But agree with comment below that this is largely being made up as they go along.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agreed.||
This whole thing is totally ad hoc. Brian has been assuming the committee was to be taken at its (earlier) word that conference championships mean something, but there's no principle or, at least, organized process flow to make the decisions. I think at this point, they just want the most compelling matchups, and that's it.
|1 week 4 days ago||I don't know what I'm drinking.||
But I know what I'm NOT drinking: Jim Delany's Kool-Aid.
WE WUZ ROBBED
|1 week 4 days ago||Don't you realize what this means?||
If they can get to Brian, they can get to any of us. Maybe one of us is one of them. And if one of us is one of them, maybe two of us is two of them. In fact, maybe all of us is all of them. So... wait... what were we talking about?
Oh yeah, Brian. Cut that hair, hippie.
|1 week 4 days ago||Thanks Internet Gandhi.||
Also, eye-for-an-eye and whatnot, amirite?
|1 week 5 days ago||And from a pic of a single||
And from a pic of a single perp on the sidewalk you concluded three guys with guns in an ISIS-type coordinated attack... how, exactly?
