Has anyone considered that pobopo and MaizeRage are scheming together?

Duke has actually decided to play this season at the Dean Dome in hopes that they might get confused for the Heels.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Just a feeling||
With the upset last night, UM plays my second most hated school in existence tonight at 7. I go to UNC, and I know all my friends here are rotting for the Wolverines tonight. I just have this feeling that it'll be Duke tonight, tOSU tomorrow. Miracles can happen. I leave you with an excerpt from our Newspaper that runs every year before the UNC-Duke game.
"Now I realize that school spirit is a pretty goofy thing to some people, and we don't really have a reason to hate other institutions of higher learning, but I'll tell you something -- I hate Duke with an infernal passion undying. I hate every leaf of every tree of that sickening campus. I hate every fake cherub 1930s Gothic piece of crap that litters the buildings like hemorrhoidal testaments to their imagined superiority. When I see those Dookie boneheads shoe-polishing their faces navy blue on national television, squandering their parents' money with their fratty elitist bad sportsmanship antics and Saab stories, I want to puke all over Durham.
So this is my request, boys of basketball: Tonight, I not only want you to win, I want Krzyzewski calling home to his mother with tears in his eyes. I want Alaa Abdelnaby to throw up brick after brick. I want Rick Fox to take Christian Laettner to the hoop so many times that poor Christian will be dazed on the bench with an Etch-a-Sketch and a box of Crayola Crayons. I want Bobby Hurley to trip on his shoelaces and fly into a fat alumnus from Wilmington! Send Thad and Lorna home with their blue tails between their legs!"

Okay, so maybe I'm a little biased, but on a serious note, Durham is really nothing but a poverty stricken region other than Duke. It is kind of sad to walk around the streets there (even right by the hospitals) and see the state of that city. As far as around town, there is nothing THAT near to campus, but if you venture out a little bit more down by Bulls Athletic Park you can go to some nice restaurants, including the Mellow Mushroom. Great pizza.
I would recommend though taking a drive over to Chapel Hill or Raleigh. If he's here around any of the home games, a Southern game would be a great experience for him. It's no Big House, but there is a certain aura that is unmistakable. Chapel Hill is basically a compacted Ann Arbor. And Jordan Lake is gorgeous to see, as are the Botanical Gardens and if the weather still permits, golfing is a must in the Triad area.
And yes, imagine a very, very large Law Quad. With assholes. And Coach K.
|6 years 11 weeks ago||I would say the game was lost||
I would say the game was lost on the "pass interference" call against Thompson. We were only down 11, had forced a punt, and would have had about 10 minutes and momentum to work with, which I think our offense could have handled. The ref called it from 20 yards away from behind, while the one standing directly there didn't call anything. I may be a bit biased, but I just hate when calls determine games like that. And the shaw fumble? Yea, for all those wondering why wo don't see the other running-backs? Yea.

Ouch, that missed extra point comes back to doom that first pick. Point shaving?
|6 years 11 weeks ago||The SEC and Big 12 are||
The SEC and Big 12 are perceived to be strong because they have played 'stronger' schedules and beat up on teams supposedly superior to the teams the Big Ten has played. Granted there are some that this is true for, but most of this is all based on the assumption that the Big 12 and SEC are already strong. When you actually look at the teams objectively, very few teams have actually played anyone of real merit yet, and the strength of a team at this point should be based on an actual viewing of that teams games and their efficiency and execution against any oponnent.
The problem is the inane circular reasoning that proliferates for the first few weeks of any college football season (and sometimes further). An SEC team beats someone and people say "Man, a quality win there, Team B is great." How do we know Team B is good? "Well they played the SEC tough, and we all know that the SEC is a great conference." It's why, when there's an SEC upset, pundits say "WOW, EVERY WEEK A PLAYOFF IN THE SEC! JUST SHOWS HOW STRONG THEY ARE, AND I HEAR THEY ARE ALL PACKIN' SOME SERIOUS HEAT!", whereas when the same level of upset or close game occurs in the Big Ten (or any other conference) it just shows the mediocrity of the conference as a whole. Weak.

I'm not completely sure how to do torrents. I'm down in NC and even though I've already watched the game 3 times via my brother's tivo, I'd like to download it. If anybody has some extra time and wants to post a quick tutorial...(fragmented conditional statement)
|6 years 12 weeks ago||Unfortunately even though it||
Unfortunately even though it makes Penn St look stronger for whupping on OSU, tOSU just looks pitiful now. I couldn't tell last night if it was just that SEC-esque speed of OSU that dominated, or maybe USC just isn't as dominant as we all thought.

I definitely think we should take a page out of Auburn's book and let a wolverine run around the stadium for a bit during the pregame.

Same here, "stuck" at UNC. I usually watch sopcast which works pretty well, especially if you know someone from up north with it.
