The only comforting thought right now is imagining just how much practice is going to suck this week for those players.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Interesting Strategy||
Mack Brown knew he needed more points on the board at Texas Memorial Stadium, and decided to just hire GERG instead of improve the offense.
"It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for 'em."

Anyone else reminded of Bobby Boucher's South Central Louisianna State University Mud Dogs?
If anyone gets the lead against MSU, it might be smart to just punt on 1st down.

McGary has been able to provide a spark off the bench for this team, and not very many players can do that. Many players need to start and play lots of minutes to get into a groove.
Until we know that Morgan or Horford can consistently give us that boost off the bench, I say steady as she goes.

Somebody's getting fired for this.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Selfish||
I hate this argument. It's 100% selfishness.
(This is not related to the rest of the post, but playoffs are NOT destroying rivalries and conferences. It's the bowl execs demanding we shoe horn a playoff system into the bowl system and conference/university execs wanting more money. Adding teams to conferences is about cable tv money. The NCAA going to only a 4 team playoff forces the conferences to whittle the teams down to 4 before the playoff even starts. Like you'll see below, it's money that's ruining those things).
Why should WE get the matchups we want to see? Does the NFL care about getting the best matchup in the Superbowl? Does MLB focus on getting the 2 absolute best teams into the World Series?
EVERY postseason in EVERY sport at EVERY level (except for NCAA Football) focuses on finding the best team. Period. No matchups. No TV Ratings. No Ad Revenue. They care about finding the best team. Not the most consistent team. The team who, at their best, plays the best football (regardless of how many losses they've already had).
NCAA Football is different. It is driven by those matchups, tv ratings, and ad revenue. It's driven first and foremost by money. They don't want teams like Wisconsin or your dreaded 6-6 GT teams to win their conferences because they aren't safe bets. They're inconsistent. Sure they can come out and play well, but they might drop the ball, and those Execs in the NCAA and at the broadcasting companies don't want to take a risk with that much money. They'd rather make a safe bet by picking the 2 best teams from a select pool of consistent teams (pick the highest ranked teams that are ranked first and foremost on being consistently good).
Seriously, if having a 6-6 GT team win the ACC was so horrible of an option, why did we even play the fucking game? Why didn't we just give FSU the Conference Title and send the lowly GT team home? If FSU were truly as good as their record indicated, why did GT have a chance? CLEARLY a 10-2 team is better than a 6-6 team, right?
Why should YOU get the matchups you want? Should these teams just not play so the fans can see what they want to see?
I'm so sick and tired of people demanding to see the "best matchup" in the championship game. No fans in any other sport feel so entitled to "demand" that the best 2 teams should reach the final. This isn't some meal being catered to your every whim. This isn't some scripted drama where the fans get exactly what they want. This is sports fergodsakes.

Just got home from a nice day out. Time to crack open a beer and turn on the B1G Champ-WHATTHEFUCKISGOINGON?!?!?!?!
In all seriousness though, I just got home. What happened?

If there was any anyone meant to reply to my "THAT'S MY PURSE, I DON'T KNOW YOU!" post, it's Hank Hill. That response was meant for you.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Shut Up!||
You shut your whore mouth!
How dare you even suggest that something might be wrong with Devin?
(Crying in the corner) (Pleading with B1G Gods) "Please just give us a starting QB. Why must you take everything from us!? B1G life was awful enough before the whole 'Maryland and Rutgers' apocalypse. Give me a break! We don't deserve this! Why do you hate us?!"
(Realizes that other people can hear me) Oh, that was nothing. I just had something in my eye. STOP LOOKING AT ME!
(Panics. Doesn't know how to respond to peer pressure). THAT'S MY PURSE! I DON'T KNOW YOU!

Oregon vs Stanford + Tom Collins (now) and South U (later).
Hopefully I'll either witness a great game or be too drunk to care!

Very astute of you...
