I think he was pretty embarrassed on a couple of replays where he focused on the wrong guy, or even circled the wrong guy on one of them, which may have prompted him to not talk as much. Mowins was fine.

YMRMFSPA: you might remember me from such players as
|3 years 18 weeks ago||TerBush||
So this is probably more a statement towards my avoidance of all Purdue games this season and various racial stereotypes but am I the only one who is surprised that Caleb TerBush is white?
I, for one, would nominate him for the Reggie Cleveland all-stars
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Illinois||
Their record is 5-1, no? Seems like you have OSU's record for them, which is fine by me, I like to see it as much as I can :).
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Jareth Glanda?||
My best guess is that Heiko misheard and Hoke was talking about Jareth Glanda the short snapper, which makes more sense
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Thank you||
Stuck in a faraway land, any reliable stream would be appreciated :)
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Less so||
but wouldn't the Grizzlies be even scarier this year if they hadn't drafted Hasheem "D-League" Thabeet at #2? Granted, at this point, the 2009 NBA Draft looks to have been a weak one, but still...
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Agreed||
The MLB has the least competitive balance, but it's not as skewed as some people tend to think.
My argument was mainly that there are less upside and more downside than people may realize to a cap. Though competitive balance is the clear upside (and I agree with your European soccer argument, although the Europa Cup is a 100 times as big a deal as the NIT, which I would compare to the late Intertoto Cup), the restrictions it puts on small market teams can lead them to bad situations (Hornets, Coyotes). Although even without salary floor restrictions, owners do a fine job of mismanaging and bankrupting teams too (Dodgers, Mets).
I'm probably pro-Salary cap, but it's a many-layered problem that is thankfully left to people much smarter than me to try and solve.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Salary cap||
The baseball example is the go-to one, but I don't think it's clear-cut evidence in favor of a salary cap. The Red Sox and Yankees have a clear advantage each year, but revenue sharing and the luxury tax help other teams as well. Since 2003, 7 different teams have won the World Series.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||At first||
It seems really hard to sympathize with either side.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||The shooter||
is only made to look good by the tremendous rebounding and passing effort of his teammate. I counted 141 rebounds and 123 assists in six minutes and a half. Beat that!
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Reminds me of||
Djibril Cissé breaking his left leg...
and then his right leg a year or so later
|3 years 45 weeks ago||NaS (and Billy Joel)||
had a New York State of Mind. Jay-Z (and Alicia Keys) had an Empire State of Mind.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Gallon||
He was on the field for a few snaps, I remember making a lame "Gallon is pint-sized" joke, but no more than that...
|3 years 46 weeks ago||That was an honest question||
I guess I needed to be educated. That Iowa player kinda looked a QB finishing his throw, hence my question. I grew up far far away, where people do not even know college football exist, so sometimes I find myself trying to catch up with all the Michigan history. I will get there one day.
For those who want to see it again:
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Epic one-handed grab.||
What was the situation? Looks like an interception, did he manage to reel it in?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Connollys||
Aren't they unrelated and from different countries?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Amateurs||
Kim is currently in the middle of the pack of amateur players, with Uihlein, Chung and Matsuyama two strokes ahead him at -1, and Smith and Jeong behind him at +2.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Federer...||
is a national hero, but there is a feeling his best days are behind him now.
I'm not losing hope, but Djokovic, Nadal and Murray look very strong going forward.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Denard at the Wisconsin game||
I don't want to take anything away from the fact Denard is the nicest kid on Earth, I certainly agree, from what I can see on campus, him dealing with so many people that want a piece of him and still flash that smile. It's pretty irrelevant and Brian only uses it as an anecdote, but at the Wisconsin game, I ran into Denard walking into Crisler with 4-5 FB players, and I was 10 minutes late myself. No idea why they weren't sitting together, though...

I think he played at Kentucky for two years.

are hard to get right now, so I'd say the crowd will be alright.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Yes||
Brandon Moore is the TE from Trotwood.
Edit: Way, way too slow.

Made me laugh out loud. Thank you

My national constitution states I have to attach my name to this discussion.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||StreamTorrent||
I am certainly no programmer, but isn't it weird that nobody has managed to do a StreamTorrent or sopCast equivalent for Mac when those programs have been out of years?
Those links always kill me when I can't find web streams. I used to run a windows partition on my MacBook simply for that, but don't have it anymore :(.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Streams||
Streams have greatly suffered from the recent crackdown.
I hope something pops up cause I was supposed to go to the game but am coming down with something so staying home.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Strong stream||
If people are still looking, this is a HD stream that's been pretty steady:

They now lead the Big Ten in players with the first name Akeem.

nothing so far... I'll post if I find something.
