Exactly. This game doesn't stick out to me because it was our first loss (I had forgotten that it was until he said that). I had already come to terms with the fact that we simply weren't very good and we'd ultimately get exposed. To lose the way we did, and to have that misery dragged out over the course of the overtimes was what did it. It's like being sentenced to death, but instead of being hung, they bury you alive. Slow, lonely, and miserable.

Am I the only one that gives the Penn State loss a LOT more points than that? I was miserable that game. MISERABLE. I spent the next 3-4 days with a rain cloud above my head. I read every miserable article about every miserable play and playcall and couldn't bring myelf out of the tailspin. True Misery. It was my first time ever having to sit down and tell myself that I had gotten too close to sports and needed to take a step back.

The is not the best outcome becuase, ultimately, Dantonio's exit from EL leaves Narduzzi as the obvious replacement.
Best Case Scenario:
Saban heads to Texas, takes Professor Needs A Raise from Bama with him to Texas. Da'Shawn Hand repents his sins, commites to Michigan. Narduzzi hired at Bama, gets out of our hair. Dantonio retires to fulfill lifelong dream of being a door to door vacuum salesman (what, with his charm and all). Urban drowns his sorrows for losing B10 championship game to a vacuum salesman by aggresively pursuing various tail in Columbus. Gets caught, takes a break for the sake of his family.
BEST. CASE. SCENARIO.

Mentioning a bubble screen and having the question seemingly ignored is not a problem of Heiko's, it's a problem of Al's. Heiko really shouldn't have to pussyfoot questions when he's talking to our 50+ year old Offensive Coordinator. If Heko suggest a play that would have been more successful against that defensive look (bubble screen or otherwise), Borges should address whether Heiko's suggestion is good or bad and then describe why. Shutting down because you heard the words 'bubble screen' is a character trait of a 7 year old, not a grown damn man.

This is what I was looking for. People have commented and the kind of conversations they believe are happening behind closed doors between Hoke and Borgers. While I agree that they are usually on the same wavelength with this stuff, Hoke has to know something is fundamentally wrong with playcalling.
You don't record the worst running performance in the history of the program without several mistakes being made - on and off the field. Period.
There are problems with the O-line, we get it. Everyone gets it. There are also problems with playcalling. We get it. Hopefully Hoke does, because we know Al doesn't.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||The dossier||
I have a problem with the dossier that Brian lists. While I agree that, at that moment in time, option 3 was the best option, it should have never existed. This list does not sufficiently bludgeon the point that our first 2 downs were completely burned (yes I know there are multiple references to down on fire throughout). Had we been playing for option 1 (end the game) the whole time, we likely arent looking at the long FG and have no reason to punt. Instead our options are 1. We've already ended the game b/c we got a 1st down, 2.Shorter, greater than 50/50 chance FG, 3. LOLPUNT? Why would we do that?!
Other than that, great write up. I hate everything.

I've watched every episode of this show at least 3 times. And yes, this is against OT policies but I +1'd it anyway. The show is THAT good.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Sad, really||
What's sad is that WLA used to be funn. Like, REALLY REALLY funny. To the point where a couple years back i was checking WLA every day for new content. They then slowly became douchey. It sucks man. Do they have an archive? Some of their old RR/Tate/Denard posts would keep me lolling for hours.

Can't see 'Commish' anymore without immediately thinking of Jabrill Peppers
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Seconded.||
I feel like. The Wire, The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and maybe Homeland (if it maintains is current level) are in a league of their own.

It's so sad that people can't even make a joke about a freaking faith healer without getting some heat. Are scientologists off limits too now? Can I not say the word 'retarded'? Should women be able to vote? 'MERICUHHHH!!!!

Not that they are really related, but if we can reel in Hand and McDowell the team we field in 2016 has the potential to be terrifying.

I typically prefer Android stuff, but I think the iPad is just easier to use. I just had my wife sell her Asus to a buy refurbished iPad and she loves it.
There will be a new nexus 10 in the coming months but my guess is you will be buying this soon and aren't looking to wait.

Reports that Trey is headed to Utah

Google is your friend. Google this topic and not only will you see that this very regulation is up for review/revoke this fall, but that most airlines now equip Captains and First Officer's with iPads (both cellular radio and wifi equipped) to use for their Flight Manuals.
If it's that dangerous, why give the pilots of the aircraft a tool that explicitly allows them to create said danger?
While it may be true that 200+ people with cellular radios can cause a small amount of radio interference, it doesnt answer the question of why all portable electronics need to be 'turned off and stowed away' during takeoff. Why would cellular OEM's produce phones with an Airplane Mode if it was just as dangerous in Airplane Mode than in Cellular Mode?
Common sense people. I never turn my cellphone off and when others ask me to, i ignore them or tell them to shut up.

Since when do teams trade coaches in the same manner as players? Are there previous examples of this?
|26 weeks 9 hours ago||As a Glendale resident||
As a Glendale resident, I'm really hoping this doesn't happen. Obviously I'm a Detroit native so I love hockey more than the average Arizonan, but a hockey game is usually a cheap Friday night. Getting to see the Wings a couple times a year is icing on the cake

Personally, I like the TV passthrough on the XBOX one. Considering the RAM the consoles wll have, I think that will actually prove useful for married guys like me whose wives demand attention in the form of watching crappy TV shows with them.
That said, the DRM and 24-hr authentication were just too much, i cant buy an Xbox One on principle alone. Really looking forward to Infamous, Uncharted, and Final Fantasy XIV and XV.

They are a little pricey but I've been absolutely amazed with mine. Got the 240hz which pretty much makes TV shows look like real people and has next to no blur. It is worth mentioning that they are LCD, if that matters (I personally preferred this as I mounted my TV and it's 60 inches. LCD is much lighter than plasma). Also, you can get these at Costco, do I got the extra year warranty which was nice.

The Michigan tournament games this year had first half threads of over 500.

Gob's first episode was incredible. Tobias, Maeby, and George Michael's episodes were also great. As a whole the season started show but once it picked up it got back to its expected level of awesome. Hoping the finale is amazing.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||An SEC school, not Florida||
I'd prefer LSU or Stanford. We go to Florida enough for bowl games (thought that might change a bit in the future), it'd be nice to get another bi-annual game in another fertile recruiting area. Louisiana or California clearly fit the bill. I know Texas fits this criteria as well...but I'd just prefer LSU/Stanford.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Why exactly don't they have more episodes||
Has anyone ever read an interview with the producers that explained why the only do 10 episodes? Many HBO series have went into the 11-13 range (Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, The Wire). As the books are so long, why not add 2-3 more episodes and let it breathe? My only guess is that the budget for GoT is already much more substantial that any of those ever needed and they were cutoff at 10, but who knows.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Ending with a bang||
They've stayed fairly true to the books but there have also been many changes, which is understandable. Considering what's happened so far, they are aiming to end this season with a bang. A lot of dialogue in this episode is very foreboding.

I've watched all of the Amazon pilots you mentioned and going the onion to be the best of them. Zombieland is decent but obviously not great without the original cast. Alpha dogs is pretty good as well.
To be honest, House of Cards set the standard and will be hard to top. The impending release of the 4th season of Arrested Development is going to be huge as well

I've had an iPad, transformer and nexus 7 and of all three I liked the transformer the best. The nexus 10 likely has a pricing advantage and will be updated more frequently, but of all the manufacturers out there Asus is probably the best at keeping software up to date. Add in the keyboard dock with more battery power and USB ports and I think it covers about anything a tablet user might need. That said, if it's just for reading, browsing, and media, save yourself some money and grab the N10.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||So depressing||
It is so depressing to see a few of the names on this list. Barkevious Mingo was offered and aggresively pursued by the previous coaching staff (actually it may have been Fred Jackson if he was the one recruting Lousiana at the time). We were in Sam Montgomery's final group too, both Roh and Lewan were trying to recruit him at the UA game. And well, we all know the story about Hankins. Not saying they all would have developed at the same level, but they all would have had at least 2-3 years with the current DL coaches. Sigh....what could have been
