- A team was getting just smashed, and so the fans warned their goalkeeper if he gave up another goal, they would bum-rush him. He promptly gave up a goal, and the fans stripped him naked.
- Another time, a fan threw a bag of snakes onto the pitch at the opposing goalkeeper.
- Coaches freak out and don't call a timeout before letting Morris(!) go in for the snap.
- Bellomy cannot find his helmet, nor can anyone else find it - this was extremely embarrassing and painful to watch, because I knew what was coming...
- Morris goes in for a snap, horrifyingly

I rowed in high school in Massachusetts, but I never rowed in the Head of the Charles. We had fall and spring rowing, with our competitions being in the spring. I played water polo in the fall, and so I didn't get to try to compete for a seat on the eight sent to the Head. However, my racing shirt from my junior season, tie-dyed over the summer in a vat of chlorine at the pool I lifeguarded at, was used by one of the guys in our school's boat. So, that's my claim to fame.
Congratulations to the U-M teams!

I haven't read the list, but I do have some comments. First, Duke and any Ivy League school should NOT be on a douche list, because those schools are just packed with nerds. Maybe the athletes would be douchebags, but generally, those schools are chock-full of geeks and dorks.
Now, when you get to the southern schools, I would say all of the SEC, plus UVA, UNC and the like would be on this list. Throw in a majority of the B1G schools and the Pac-12.

I just got out of bed (11:45 CDT). I stayed up until 4:00am working on a project due Monday, because I had spent four hours Friday afternoon installing a new hot water heater. Living in an old farm house has its pro's and con's.

Denmark blew it against Portugal, conceding an at-the-death header to Ronaldo...was harsh....Then, Denmark almost tied it up on the last play of the game when their goalkeeper nearly headed in a corner.

I remember when Elvis Grbac came in in that game. We were all looking at each other in the stands, "who?" He ended up being a fine quarterback, but we were wondering how the hell he would run the ball. Didn't matter - our running backs and o-line back then were sick. Then of course, Grbac to Howard and Alexander occurred. Good times.

My brother is a UGA grad, and he is the most down-to-earth fan I know. He doesn't gloat in victory or wallow in despair like I do (well, used to). He's an orthopedic surgeon, and so he knows a lot of football players are living on borrowed time.

I have clearly moved from the realm of being super-pissed/depressed about losses, where my mood lasts until about Wednesday, to not letting losing get to me. Wins were so common that I never really appreciated them (and boy am I sorry for that). Now, I just pray for not being too embarrassed on the field (like last night - we played OK) and no injuries. A huge win over MSU or OSU this year will cause ecstasy the likes only matched by UTL I, the '98 Rose Bowl and a handful of other games over the years.
Note: I have not read the rest of the posts in this thread, and so I apologize if I am regurgitating an already-established psyche.

I HATE the O's - go Tigers! After this game, the Nats play SF, with Strasburg against Peavy. This will be Strasburg's first post-season appearance - let's hope it's a good one.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I want Brandon gone as much||
I want Brandon gone as much as the majority does because of the damage he and his antics have caused the football program, but I respect what you are saying here. The flagship of the AD of course is football, but the other programs should be looked at equally when it comes to forums* like the SAAC.
Yes, there may be a hint of "Stockholm Syndrome" as alluded to above in a post, but I see no meddling by administration to cause the SAAC to issue a statement like this.
It is the complete mismanagement of the football brand and quality coupled with the clearly incompetent handling of Shane Morris that pushed me once and for all into the fire Brandon/Hoke camp. It is sad, but it is needed.
*typed "fora" at first, but it looked a little pretentious, even though correct :)

Students need to build a shanty on the Diag (are they still allowed to build semi-permanent structures on the Diag?) and go on hunger strikes until Hoke/Brandon are fired.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I went batshit during the||
I went batshit during the whole Morris incident yesterday at home. The whole thing points back to a clear lack of management by the coaching staff, specifically Hoke:
1) Clearly wobbly and hurt Morris is pulled out of the game.
2) I see (not that I am all-seeing because I was watching on TV) no administering to Morris on the bench after the shot to his head.
3) Gardner loses his helmet, and a cascade of events occur, due to the aforementioned lack of management:
I feel that, as has been said ad nauseam, that Hoke truly cares about his players, but when you are not a good leader and the management of your organization is shoddy, a normally easily-handled event (Gardner losing his helmet) balloons into a mess (Morris taking snap).
