Must be the case. Palmdale, where his nephew was struggling, is probably 100 miles from downtown LA, where Orsini is (quite nice apartments, I might add), so he drove a long way with two sprained ankles.
|5 min 52 sec ago||Exactly. Had he said, "I was||
Exactly. Had he said, "I was being dumb and jumped off a balcony" we wouldn't be talking about this right now. He would still get in trouble, but he wouldn't be a laughing stock.

But Carroll liked to run it up the middle...oh, I get it.
|3 hours 6 min ago||Green is my prediction as||
Green is my prediction as well. If history serves, our first TD will be a run play from a running back.
|6 hours 10 min ago||I'm confused - wouldn't the||
I'm confused - wouldn't the Brandon Inge of beer be the best and manliest beer of all time?
Bell's is the John Navarre of beers. Very good, but lots of people seem to hate it for no reason.

Agreed - CA could be #1 with SD alone. I'm a big Karl Strauss fan myself, but NorCal's Lagunitas is way up there too.
California has quantity and quality, that's why they're up there. That said, I still think Founder's is better than all of them.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Yeah - if Jake Butt is almost||
Yeah - if Jake Butt is almost playing now after tearing his ACL in the spring, this kid will be fine to start the year in 2015. He'll be playing in spring practice, though he'll probably be no-contact. If he enrolls early, that is.

Blame it on the sprain, it was red and swollen. Blame it on the nephew, swimmin' at night.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Yeah, that defense is really||
Yeah, that defense is really small. It's like their base and is a dime. If we can't run on them, we're in trouble.
That said, I bet we run all over them.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Look, I told you what I meant||
Look, I told you what I meant by "experienced" and that is 'has experience." If you want to use it in a different context and have a conversation with yourself, go for it.
It's not terribly uncommon for the opening week depth chart to have the returning player who played last year to be above the guy who didn't. Are there exceptions? Of course. Might that change over the course of the season? You bet.
But it doesn't say anything bad about Canteen because he's #2 behind a guy who played a lot last year and looked good doing it.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Uh, and Wheatley too, he was||
Uh, and Wheatley too, he was better than all of them. Funny how Jamie Morris and Mike Hart (great backs, don't get me wrong) are the two set apart and Wheatley, Thomas and Perry were in the "other guys" category. Weird.
|1 day 22 hours ago||For starters, he said in his||
For starters, he said in his opinion, and you likely don't care about his opinion on such matters.
But you have to understand there's a difference between missing a game because of a conflict and whining to the entire internet why you're choosing to not watch a game.
We, as humans and sports fans, judge other people's fandom all the time. I have a friend who is the biggest Mets fan ever - I never see him without some Mets apparel, even at events where that's not really appropriate. I have other friends who cheer for the Mets, but are certainly less of a fan. Wolverine Devotee is a bigger Michigan fan than my dad, who doesn't learn a player's name until he steps onto the field for the first time.
So it's totally normal and OK for a person to think that PGB isn't as big of a Michigan fan if he's willing to skip 1/13th of the season because of a grudge, since most of us are upset about the schedule but we're still watching because we can't not watch a Michigan football game.
Personally, I don't care how big of a fan he is because I know not everyone has the same level of devotion. I think it's lame for him to tell us how big of a fan he is and then whine for 8 paragraphs about why he doesn't want to watch the game.

Definitely go around calling everyone an asshole who speaks to you with a "bit of a condescending" tone.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Oh boy. The blackberry||
Oh boy. The blackberry doesn't sound so bad, the bottle of Patron? You must have been sore the next morning.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I didn't suggest he reported||
I didn't suggest he reported the rumor as fact, I suggested he reported Mike Farrell's comment as fact. Looking back at his comment I still feel that way.
|1 day 23 hours ago||You certainly suggested that||
You certainly suggested that it was a fact that Mike Farrell was saying that Roseboro is an NC St lean, which he didn't say, and you implied that you heard (or saw) this yourself, when it's just your buddy's interpretation of what he heard or read.
There's a difference between me saying "Mike Farrell stated in an article he wrote that X" and "I heard from a buddy something about Mike Farrell and X" right? That's all I'm saying. No need to name call. There's a certain level of etiquette here, and it doesn't make me an asshole for expecting it.
|1 day 23 hours ago||People say this all the time,||
People say this all the time, but it's not that simple. Could Alan Branch call a cab or a limo? Of course. But the problem with that is so can you and I. NFL players (and other hot-shot types) pay big money for their cars, and the biggest reason to do that is to show it off to your friends and the ladies.
You (I assume) or I can't take the girl I just picked up at the bar out to our Rolls or Porsche and take her home, or roll up to the club with our boys in a G Wagon. Pro athletes can, so they do. And then they get DUIs.

...you're oversexed and ambidextrous.
And I just found my new band name.

Please continue posting your third-hand info as fact.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Yeah - that's how I'd handle||
Yeah - that's how I'd handle it. "Ben, go whenever you think is best. But if we both went to Michigan, HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE RIGHT?!?!?"
|2 days 3 hours ago||Guys, Mat is wrong a lot. I||
Guys, Mat is wrong a lot. I mean, A LOT. So I get his excitement here.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I just meant that we have a||
I just meant that we have a number of guys who have see a college field before, and Canteen has not. Experienced, in this context, just means "has experience" as opposed to "has none." My point is, it's not like Canteen got beat out by another rookie, he is only sitting behind one guy, and that guy has caught a touchdown in a college football game. In terms of "experience," Chesson sure has a edge over Canteen, wouldn't you say?
|2 days 3 hours ago||Didn't neg for he stance.||
Didn't neg for he stance. Negged for the "I'm a special snowflake and listen to why I think I'm above Michigan football" post.
I'm I in love with the idea of playing App State? Nope. But God damn if I'm going to miss a Michigan football game by my own choosing.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Agreed. That was a nice||
Agreed. That was a nice touch.
|2 days 5 hours ago||He's listed as a second||
He's listed as a second string WR as a true frosh. That's really good, considering we have some good, experienced receivers on the roster.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Yeah - college football fans||
Yeah - college football fans have a tendency to do this. Every year people insisted that Kovacs wasn't going to start because one of our scholarship safeties was sure to pass him. Last year people were more worried about Glasgow starting than Kalis, even though he consistently outplayed him and is older.
I hope Ryan Glasgow turns out to be a super star. He has more eligibility left than Pipkins anyway.
|2 days 6 hours ago||It absolutely does. It's not||
It absolutely does. It's not the only factor, and SDSU doesn't exactly have a huge fanbase to account for but that certainly gets factored in. The networks want as many viewers as possible.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Students really complain that||
Students really complain that noon games are too early? We loved noon games because it was still warm, and it gave us time to get home, take a nap and go out again that night.
|3 days 3 hours ago||That's why Wheatley was so||
That's why Wheatley was so incredible. He is both the biggest and the fastest UM RB I can remember. That doesn't come around very often. Denard's speed in Wyatt Shallman's body, and that's not an exaggeration. Think about it.
EDIT: We'll see if Ty Isaac can put it all together, because from a physical standpoint, he's the closest we've had to that in a while.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Ohio State had a great||
Ohio State had a great offense last year. A lot of teams struggled with them. Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde were a very tough combination, and they had a great offensive line. We likely won't see an offense like that this year.
Kansas State was just awful right off the bat. We couldn't stop that Lockett kid, and the fact that our offense couldn't do anything didn't help. Our D played well in the second half against KSU, but our offense just didn't help them out at all.
