Boy, Fresno St is awful. Now I'm not worried about Saturday at all..Utah should have beaten them by triple digits. At halftime.

I guess it's a good thing we didn't opt for SeaWorld - Helena then. Fhew!
|9 hours 2 min ago||I agree with you 100%. SD||
I agree with you 100%. SD beats the pants off LA in almost every category. Cost of living, at least coming from where we live, is comparable.
And although she has the open offer to transfer there, we still have the issue with my job and we own a house in LA so it wouldn't exactly be a seamless transition. We've basically said that if I ever have an opportunity within my job or with a different company to move to SD we'd jump on it.
|9 hours 16 min ago||All good suggestions, thanks||
All good suggestions, thanks guys. The boys love the beach, and the weather should be back to not crazy this weekend. I love La Jolla as well, and seeing the seals might be a good way to gear up for Sea World the next day.
They're also going to their first ball game Friday night at Petco. We won't be there long, but it's a more kid friendly park than Dodger Stadium so it should be fun.

Close. My 4 year old is styaing at Sea World for the rest of the day with my wife, and my 16 month old is coming back with me to nap. Luckily, we have a suite so he'll be napping in one room and I'll be watching the game in the other. He's also a heavy sleeper.
That said, I agree with you. I'm a loud person and an even louder football watcher. My wife can be heard during games saying "No, daddy's not mad at you, he's mad at the TV." In this instance, however, the quieter I can be, the more uninterrupted football time I get, so I might just watch with a sock in my mouth or something.
|22 hours 33 min ago||Thanks for the suggestions!||
Thanks for the suggestions! We get a yearly pass to the LA Zoo every year and although I know the SD Zoo is better, I only have about an hour and those boys go to the zoo about twice a month as it is.
And I can't do a UM bar for the games because the only way I'm getting out of Sea World is so my son can take a nap and I can't exactly leave him in the hotel room to go to PB. Though I love PB - I rented a beach house there for my bachelor party.
|22 hours 36 min ago||Thanks guys - I only have||
Thanks guys - I only have about an hour or two to kill and I'll have a 4 year old and a toddler with me so any adult things are out.
I've been to Craft and Commerce before because the last time we were in SD we stayed in Little Italy. It's unique - but sometimes you just want to order something normal and you just can't do that there.
I think Seaport Village is a great idea - it's right across from our hotel so we can walk, hang out for a bit, and head back.

That's a solid indication, thanks a lot.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Yep. My wife has a work||
Yep. My wife has a work meeting in SD on Friday for lunch so we're all going down and doing a little Petco Park and Seaworld. I'm leaving Seaworld after lunch to put the baby down for a nap (my 4 year old will stay there with WolvmominLA) and watch the game and the person at our hotel front desk said the room gets ESPN but not ESPN2.
I've got both boys by myself for a few hours in the middle the day Friday. Any pointers on stuff to do that might be walking distance or short drive from the Embassy Suites downtown/gaslamp?
On a related note, my wife has an open offer to move to her firm's SD office, so I may become WolvinSD at some point.

If the "we" you're referring to is the consensus at MGoBlog, then "we" like absolutely nothing.

I will be in San Diego, and since that's Pac-12 country and we're playing a Pac-12 team, all signs point to me getting it on ABC, but I want to confirm that or figure out how to rearrange some plans.

Is this smart? Nope. Is it that big of a deal? Nope again. Even though he's a public figure and even though he has a history of poor judgment, he's still a college guy. This is pretty low on the "dumb things guys do in college" spectrum.
I probably would have done it naked, on a dare. From myself.

Agreed. That's a very funny post.

I have to imagine it does. I've enjoyed some pretty worthless shit while stoned. I can't believe that even the awfulness of Ohio is powerful enough to overcome good bud.
|2 days 2 hours ago||It's a good rule. Each team||
It's a good rule. Each team gets to choose once. The coin flip just determines who chooses which half.
It's not just for an opportunity to berate a college kid for doing something stupid, because that can happen at any point during the game (every week there are plenty of college kids doing stupid somethings that fans berate). It's a rule of fairness. And like any rule, if you'd like to forego your fairness, you have that option. Just like you can decline a penalty against your opponent.

Fresno State is bad. They weren't nearly as good last year as their record suggested (they lost to SJSU and Rutgers took them to OT), were pummeled in their bowl by a mediocre USC team and the only reason they were decent was because they had Derek Carr who is now an NFL starter.
And Idaho St is very bad, and even they were able to move the ball OK on Utah.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Honestly - that might be a||
Honestly - that might be a little too big. Their OL I mean. For guys who aren't super tall, that's a lot of weight to try and move around. There's a reason even NFL OL aren't that big.
The fact that their RT is only 6'3" is nice - he'll have a hard time handling whoever we put over there to rush the passer, likely Beyer and Taco.

I'm not sure it's such a bad matchup, especially if our DBs are healthy again by then. They put up a ton of offense against UNLV in week 1, but have looked pretty pedestrian since then.

If we play in a crappy bowl, please play in a crappy bowl in California.

RichRod ran a jumbo package with both Campbell and Quintin Washington in the backfield as lead backs.

Yeah - I read that site for the first time last week about an hour before lunch, and I was so hungry that I ordered for 3 at the restaurant I went for lunch, and ate it all. And then I wanted nothing to do with that website for at least a few hours.

This seems like a weird place to buy BBQ sauce/rubs, but I was at Lowe's last night and I was looking at grilling stuff and I noticed they sold a bunch of Stubb's stuff. Not their entire selection, for sure, but a decent amount. If you can't find it at grocery stores, it's possible the Lowe's by you has it.
|1 week 3 days ago||I would not say Paterno did||
I would not say Paterno did what he was "supposed to do." He did the bare minimum of what he was required to do and that's not the same thing. He absolutely turned a blind eye. He knew about what happened, and when his higher-ups did nothing, he took the "well if they don't care, I don't care" approach, rather than being disgusted by it. If I had even a sneeking suspicion that my friend/co-worker was up to that kind of stuff, I think I'd go a little further than my bare minimum legal requirement.

2 ways it helped the program:
1. They got to keep their DC who was a very good coach. Had they fired him like they should have, his replacement may have been inferior, and there would have possibly been a blip through the transition.
2. The media shitstorm surrounding the firing would have made PSU look bad an affected recruiting. By covering it up, you avoid TONS of (deserved) bad publicity.
So yes, their transgressions absolutely gave their program a competitive advantage compared to a program who handled it properly. PSU had a choice between doing what was right, and what was best for football and they chose the latter. That's why they were punished.

God this blog is a depressing mess after a loss. It's like reading mlive comments. Holy shit.

Does he? Because that would be cool. We know for sure that Charlie Munger does, and if Buffett is 12 levels above Kelly, Munger is 11.
|1 week 6 days ago||Agreed. Depth is a part of||
Agreed. Depth is a part of football. injuries, suspensions and other kinds of absences are all part of the game, and a big part of putting together a great football team is having enough quality depth to overcome them when they happen. This has happened to us on numerous occasions, and I promise out opponents didn't feel bad about beating us shorthanded.
