"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Tony Dungy did not retire until after the 2008 season so he would have been in the middle of a 13-3 season during the clown show. Doesn't really affect the overall picture of Martin during the fiasco, but he wasn't a broadcaster and I doubt he was answering Martin's call at the time.

I love that there is now a tag for 'the ugly organ'.
Also, 1000 cocktails to you, sir, for that photoshop. Well earned.

Thanks for reminding me why I stopped reading this board.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||I am not suggesting scrap them all||
But momentum of bowl wins is overrated, and I am just questioning if additional time under a lame duck defensive staff is more productive than that time under the new defensive regime.

But if you are giving a DC full control, which they should, don't you think we could get someone better than GERG?

Can we start calling Denard the Football Bork?

at least hasn't lost his starting job at MSU...
|5 years 24 weeks ago||LeBron a moron?||
Why would LeBron want to stay in Cleveland and put career in the hands of a college coach? This just doesn't make any sense. And it will be extremely annoying when Izzo stays and the Sparty faithful play the "he turned down $30M/LeBron to stay at MSU" card.
Also, Forde can eat a bag of dicks.

You certainly earned them.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||squeezed?||
This was the 1st game I was able to catch out here on the West Coast - do they typically take so many called 3rd strikes? It looked like they were getting squeezed a bit, especially the called 3rd Biondi took in the 8th w/ runners on 2nd and 3rd. That pitch looked no better than the ball 4 that walked in the tying run in the bottom of the 8th. That said, when you leave 14 guys on you had plenty of chances to get more than 3.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||2009 updated||
FYI - the 2009 #s in the table above only represent the totals thru the Illinois game. Including the last 3 games they are:
Offense - 47 - 195 - 59%
Defense - 44 - 210 - 68%
The defense only "held" Pur/Wisc/OSU to 1 fg in 10 trips the last 3 games (9 TDs) to bring the efficiency down considerably. The offense struggled as well.

Hat Guy will always get a pass from me simply based on the amount of enjoyment he has provided via FJM. I miss those guys.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||I doubt he is ignorant||
He is an MSU alum, and has covered MSU sports for a couple decades. My guess is that as an alum, he has just fallen for MD's reputation as no-nonsense, strict coach, as most everyone has. Somehow MD has gotten as much attention for punishing a player for not wearing a tie as he has for his role in these brawls.

One of my all-time favorite memories from the interwebs.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||What are you looking for?||
RCMB does a good job of coming up w/ info. They were the ones that outed the new logo and got it shelved. You have sift thru a ton bs (emotocons, scUM, Meatchicken, general idiocy, etc) to get to it. It just isn't worth it. Maybe I am just getting older, but even their epic meltdowns don't seem as much fun anymore.
If you want solid analysis, KJ does a great job at The Only Colors. Check out his post after the Butler game of possibly the only rational Spartan fan that didn't lose his sh*t after the non-call at the end of the game. http://www.theonlycolors.com/2010/4/7/1410257/on-officiating
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Lost confidence||
This is an inconsistent team that has lost its confidence. How is playing in the CBI going to help? Do you really think that they will stay consistent enough to win it? Remember, this is a team that lost to Indiana, Penn State, twice to NW, needed OT to win at Iowa, ect. This team needs time away from games to build confidence back, not losing in the 2nd round to S. Florida.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||You ain't lying||
Small school indeed. I knew quite a few kids from All Saints, including my roommate at UM. I went to BC Central '98. We were a football powerhouse in the 50s-70s. Not so much anymore, unless you consider Alex Mitchell a powerhouse.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||From an old college roommate||
My initials are TB. A roommate that I lived w/ on Dewey thought my last name was Bliggins. Which, other than starting w/ 'B', isn't even close to my last name. So that stuck as a nickname.

The new logo looks like a comic book rendition. I think if they told no one of the change very few people would have even noticed. Some MSU fans I know are losing their minds about this, though.

by the end of Infinite Jest I was pining for another 500 pages. Just an incredible book.

The biggest risk involved w/ bringing Kiffin in is that they will have some sanctions of indeterminable strength, which will probably include some sort of probation. And the guy you hire racked up numerous secondary violations in just over 1 year at Tennessee? He should have excellent coordinators around him while he is there to not mess up the product on the field, it is getting into more trouble off the field that has a better chance of derailing this train.

Richard never played baseball until he left the football team. He saw the writing on the wall that he would never pass Henne on the depth chart and went to the baseball team.

Regardless of the coaching situation, this was not surprising as Jimmah was an extremely old Jr.

The B12 was down this year. Cincy's best 2 wins were at Pitt and at Or State. That is better than Texas' best 2 wins (at Ok State and vs Okla). The rest is a wash, imo.
