False. 2 losses in 99 (or 00?) and 06.
Great coach. Great man. Ran into a cheating buzzsaw in Tressel. Only real blemish.

Your edit beat me to it...such a hillarious story in retrospect:
Notice the timeline; the woman sees Davenport squatting in her closet, then he did his thing. It's like he had reverse stage fright.
I bet that thing was MASSIVE...when you gotta go, you gotta go.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||He's been quoted both before||
He's been quoted both before this year and since announcing his retirement that he feels he could physically play the game another 2-3 years or more, but his heart just isn't in it to do the year round grind and little things. Gotta respect that.

Question. Have you looked at the entire context?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||There is no such thing as an||
There is no such thing as an excessive clean hit in my book. You get a shot to tee off on someone with the ball, and you can do it cleanly without going helmet to helmet, wreak absolute havoc. That's how fumbles happen. See also the frank Clark hit on Braxton from a couple years ago.

I count one speculative statement (one not out of thin air) and no comment on what Dantonio was doing.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Ha. If you can't see the||
Ha. If you can't see the difference, then we're probably done here. I'll try to help - different sports, different stakes, one was a single gesture while running off the court, the other was not, one was a single player (sophomore), the other a large group of players including a senior leader QB, one was isolated, the other apparently a tradition after big wins, one likely resulted in a Beilein lecture, the other embraced and encouraged by Dantonio via his bull shit disrespect schtick. Are you with me yet?
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Agree with everything you||
Agree with everything you said. What amazes me though, is after such a huge win, a large portion of MSU players (including their senior leader QB) chose to go out of their way to taunt a bunch of OSU fans instead of celebrating with their teammates. That just doesn't compute for me and shows how shitty that culture is (they win though, so whatever I guess). It wasn't just a Nik Stauskas kiss blowing while running off the court either. They ran about 50 yards to get where they could talk specific shit to the OSU student section, very similar to what they did in Ann Arbor. Shows zero growth as a program and why they deserve no respect.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||What about the facts||
What about the facts surrounding the terrible ownership situation he was dealt for the last 7 or so years of his tenure. I agree he needed to go, it was time, but he was force make big gambles on borderline players due to circumstances mostly out of his control.

You pump your brakes kid, that man's a national treasure...

All NBA contracts are guaranteed. Nothing special with Green or his agent. Take a look at josh Smith - he took a vet minimum deal from the clippers because he was still getting paid millions from the Pistons.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Honestly not trying to be a||
Honestly not trying to be a dick, but this is so wrong it, and it makes me sad people actually think this. Tax rates for individuals in the US are progressive but they are MARGINAL tax rates. If a bracket cut-off is $90k, you're taxed at 25% on your first $90k of income and 28% on every dollar you make over $90k. If you got a $5 raise, you wouldn't then pay tax at 28% on the whole $90,005 of income. I dislike the IRS just as much as the next guy, but they're not that mean.
Really rich people (or corporations) just make sooo much money that the top marginal rate is basically what they pay on everything because the piddly amount they pay on their first $X of income is so small compared to the rest.

Lasts a year?! Man you were lucky. My 10 month old crawls faster than most 2 year olds walk, so our break was maybe 6 months. It's insane the ingenuity shown by infants in order to access things their parents tried to prevent them from touching.

I'm guessing Harris is the last name of the player/staff getting that ring. I really hope it's not a reference to the Harris Poll. Is that pool even around anymore post-BCS?

To be fair, our 2003 (2004 Rose Bowl) B1G Champ rings had the OSU score them. It was the 100th game, though, and we won an actual championship. Oh, and OSU was a top 5 team.
So, we have done it before, but in entirely different circumstances.
Also, for those unaware, we typically do give out rings for bowl game wins as well. Just don't make a big deal out of them or make them nearly as fancy as the B1G or national champ ones.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Totally agree. NFL handled||
Totally agree. NFL handled this about as poorly as I could have imagined. They should have just said nothing conclusive was found but they would revisit the procedure of ensuring compliance with ball pressure yada yada yada...
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Preponderance of the evidence||
Preponderance of the evidence is the standard here, not beyond a reasonable doubt. Talking about acquittals by a jury/judge isn't applicable. All the NFL needs/needed to do was "prove" it was more likely than not the Pats tampered with balls. I haven't read all these reports, so it's possible they haven't even done that, but the lack of a smoking gun isn't really relevant. I think if we're being honest, it's more likely than not the Pats did something. Yes, probably the same something a lot of teams do, but still not legal.

I can see it now - "Dear Little Bobby, I suggest you find a new toy store to frequent. We will be fine without you. Have a happy childhood. Sincerely, Dave and Geoffrey"

Good god. I mean, it's a pretty typical CEO comp package, but given what we know of the guy, his personality, and how he operates, it pisses me off more than it should. And I don't even GAF about that company.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Booooooo! That's just using||
That's just using the company's bully position at the beginning of the process to lock people into a comp level you're comfortable with. When the candidate gains a bit of leverage and wants to use it, you pull the offer implying they're being unreasonable? This is the type of red flag / bullett to dodge being discussed in this scenario.

PROOF! I guess he's improved.
I'm an unaplogetic fan of Hootie and the Blowfish. Man they took over for awhile - so many cool sports cameos in this video.

This season has leapt forward in terms of storytelling (no coincidence its when the show runners had to diverge from the books). Much more than fantasy stuff, although if you don't like dragons and sword fights (not that kind) I don't wanna be friends anymore.

Wow, no point discussing further. Boardwalk had its moments, but you are the only person I've ever heard state it's better than mad men.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||This just speaks to your||
This just speaks to your tastes and unwillingness to commit to characters without background action, drugs, dragons, magic, blood, etc. nothing wrong with that at all, but Mad Men has been almost universally recognized as on par or better than those shows you mentioned. To each their own.

I had that pullover when I was in 5th/6th grade. I actually think it's still in my parents' closet back home. That thing was awesome and soooo stylish back in the day!
