|7 weeks 3 days ago||The Wide Right Against Miami Was in 1991||
It was late in the 1991 season, not 1990. It did cost FSU a probable national championship (or split of one with Washington).
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Based on this quote from the CFP Committee Chairman||
I don't think they have any problem putting in Ohio State and not Penn State: ""Penn State and Ohio State are not close in the eyes of the selection committee."
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly.||
That's all we're suggesting. You would think it would be in the best interests of the Big Ten to avoid the appearance of conflict, even if the game had been perfectly officiated. I can't believe there aren't already procedures in place to avoid this. Well, I can because it's the Big Ten.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Bo's Smirk||
That clip is from the film Vintage Bo, a classic 30-40 minute film that followed Bo around during the week of the 1971 Iowa game. The whole film used to be on YouTube but only a few clips posted by Dr. Sap are up now. IIRC the smirk was because right after he sent in Brandstatter, Bo realized that Iowa had too many men on the field on the previous play, which allowed them to stop Bo Rather for a loss.

The targeting rule is completely out of control. You can't be kicking people out of games for calls the officials/review officials only call correctly about 50% of the time.
Clearly so many of these calls are borderline. An ejection should be reserved for something that is blatant. I think they need to remove the automatic ejection part of the rule and leave the ejection up to the discretion of the officials by having a Targeting 1 rule that only gets a penalty and a Targeting 2 rule that also results in ejection. Hopefully the officials can at least learn to distinguish between a borderline infraction and a blatant one.

I never got into their older albums but just listened to Sun City Creeps and loved it. I'll check out the rest of the album.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Joanna Newsom is one voice I||
Joanna Newsom is one voice I cannot get past....
I'm surprised by the reaction to Julien Erlich's voice. Pitchfork mentioned it too but I loved it right away. There are some voices where I know it's going to be a hurdle for a lot of people, Wild Beasts and Joanna Newsom being two prime examples. I just don't see it with Erlich. It's high pitched/falsetto'ish but I don't think it's annoying.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah he really opened up the||
Yeah he really opened up the arrangements of the Carrie and Lowell songs on that tour. 4th of July and the 12 minute version of Blue Bucket of Gold were especially good. One of the best shows I've seen.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly||
|34 weeks 5 days ago||My favorite albums by Andrew Bird are||
My favorite albums by Andrew Bird are still Weather Systems and The Mysterious Production of Eggs, from 2003 and 2005, respectively. If you haven't listened to those check them out.

Not To Disappear is good but I do feel like they might be headed for stagnation. Loved the EP's and the first full length. This album is good but they can't repeat this again or they'll run into the same issue Beach House did on their two albums last year.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Japanese Breakfast||
Yeah I wrote that down wrong.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||What gave it away....||
....besides my pretentious snobby list??
No, but that is a common question. Unfortunately they've ceded control over there to a bunch of hip hop lovers.

He doesn't play his second round until tomorrow morning.
|50 weeks 5 hours ago||I Like Option #4||
I haven't heard anybody push that alternative but it is definitely the best option if keeping the Rose Bowl on NYD is a must.
|50 weeks 6 hours ago||January 2 Is Not New||
The New Year's Day bowl games have always been played on Jan. 2 when NYD is a Sunday. January 2 is a holiday in this case. But they should play the playoff games on Jan. 2 and play the relatively meaningless other games on NYE.
|50 weeks 6 hours ago||No Actual Change and Still Clueless||
I don't know why it's so hard for them to fathom why it is a horrible idea to dump two of the biggest college football games of the year into the television wasteland that is New Year's Eve. Any alternative they can find will be better than NYE.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Great Doc||
It's titled Vintage Bo and follows him the entire week of the Iowa game. It's about 30 minutes long and definitely worth seeing. I have a VHS copy somewhere next to my 8 track tapes.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||He Won't Be The Guest Picker||
They always have some local connection. I like the idea somebody had on another thread. Woodson, since he's on a bye week.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Open for just a few months....||
....according to a comment on the article.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Technically the '85 Team was 6 Points From Perfection||
Lost by 2 to ND, 1 to Miami, and tied Iowa.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||12 Points From 12-0 not 4 Points||
They lost the Rose Bowl 22-15 to John Cooper's Arizona State team. Apparently the game that convinced Ohio State to hire Cooper. The irony.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Exactly EGD||
It's hard for a band to stay great/relevant for longer than 20 years. U2's best work was in the 80's/early 90's but Zooropa, Pop, and All You Can Leave Behind are not bad albums. They hit the wall after that and their last three albums, starting wtih Atomic Bomb, have been pretty bad.
The next band to test this 20 year thesis will be Radiohead with their next album. King of Limbs was still pretty damn good so hopefully they can break the 20 year mark (Pablo Honey was released in 1993).
Also, nice Hail to The Thief avatar.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||It's from 1976||
He had surgery between the 1975 and 1976 seasons, and then again after the 1987 season (missing the Hall of Fame Bowl that year).
|2 years 3 weeks ago||First drop happened with Oregon leading 7-0||
If they convert that third down and go on to make it 14-0......
|2 years 4 weeks ago||It's Not Unbelievable That You Couldn't Know The Difference||
Nobody in the video below, including a former college QB, could tell the difference between a ball with 13.5 and a ball with 10.5 PSI. 3 of the 4 "civilians" guessed wrong on which was which and the college QB said he couldn't tell any difference.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||App State/U of M||
I don't think there was any line on that game since App State was a 1-AA team at the time.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Brian's #4 - 2012 NW not 2011||
The 2011 Northwestern game was in Evanston, won by Michign 42-24. The 2012 game was the one with the pass tipped to Roundtree.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||FG not TD||
The play set up a field goal to make it 13-10 near the end of the first half. It's at the 40 minute mark of the video.
