I think it is smart to focus on the site overhaul before the apps. If the site overhaul is done well, it will eliminate the need to have an app for anyone who is casually browsing or reading but not participating in the comments very much.
A responsive site that displays well on mobile browsers would be just as good as an app for all but the biggest power users who spend so much time commenting on here. Obviously, those users are important, and losing one power user probably hurts revenue more than losing one casual browser, but I'm sure power users make up a small percentage of the user base.

Well, he either goes or he stays. Sounds 50/50 to me.
|1 week 2 days ago||USC/BAYLOR||
How about this call from the USC/Baylor game last night? They called it out of bounds off of Baylor, USC ball.
This is the most inexplicably bad call that I saw this weekend. It wasn't such an obvious turning point as the Gonzaga goaltending no-call, but that Baylor player is their best player and he was in foul trouble (I'm pretty sure he had four at this point, he ended up fouling out with a few minutes left in the game).

Someone posted a gorgeous 11 GB torrent of the Oklahoma State game within 24 hours of end of the game. I'd imagine something similar will be posted soon for this game.

It says in the article that his teammates were intentionally fouling to lengthen the game and give him more scoring opportunities.
Kind of lame.

Some people say that the moon landing was fake. I go a step further, I think the moon is fake. Look into it, there's a lot of shocking stuff out there about it.

I'm sure it will still crash, but all of those users from the mobile app that were viewing the site without ads (and therefore not generating revenue) will now be viewing the actual site (and generating revenue). If some of them don't come at all, that allows more revenue generating viewers to view the site before it crashes.

Personally, I wouldn't mind that, if it means the site doesn't crash every time there is a commitment.
Combined with the fact that Brian wasn't seeing a dime from those views, if half of them never view the site again, and the other half view it on a revenue generating platform, it would be a net positive for him.

He's trying to keep the site from crashing. The traffic coming from the unofficial app is weighing on the server as much as page views on the site, but he's not getting any ad revenue from it. It makes sense. Hard to fault him for it.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Not Really||
He doesn't make anything from it. He makes money from ads, and if you view the site on the unofficial app, you don't interact with any ads. In fact it hurts him, because it overloads the server without giving any money.
Ideally, the site would be updated to a modern, responsive design, which would eliminate the need for an app, and send the ad revenue straight to Brian.

I expect Najee Harris to get most of the carries next year.

Ah, yeah I see what you mean. I'm a casual Southampton fan, and most people I've read seem to think Pellegrini is the guy. I would prefer Pellegrini over Klinsmann, though I have a higher opinion of his performance as the USMNT, than a lot of people.

Ronald Koeman left Southampton for Everton earlier this off season. This would be Southampton filling a vacancy, not replacing their coach.

UCLA has two losses and controls it's own destiny to win the PAC 12. I believe if Stanford beats ND, and UCLA wins the PAC 12, we'd have a decent shot for the playoffs.
I'm just hoping for a B1G championship, if we make the playoffs that will just be icing on the cake

That was the double play action, throw to Houma down the right sideline, where the entire Rutgers defence bit on the Peppers fake to the left.

As a Dolphins' fan, I was pretty excited when I read this article, this morning:

Actually GRIII was born on January 8, 1994. So he would've already been born when that game happened.
Interesting fact that I hadn't heard before he was born three months premature and only weighed 3lbs 4ozs. He had to spend the next two months in an incubator with a mini basketball, according to wikipedia.

I vote for this and then Oklahoma State home and home in 2016-2017. I would really like to see us play West Virginia at soom point in the near future too.

Childish Gambino would be at the top of my to-see list if I was going.

Oh, you mean 30 years before I was born? Wow, things do change fast... lol
But seriously, I agree with your point, probably could've picked a better example though.

You say that about being annoyed about allowing a short team score on a corner kick, but height isn't everything. IIRC, Japan had multiple corner kick (or possibly headers off of free kicks that were basically corners) goals in the Women's World Cup. Some teams are just really good at moving and getting people open for headers.

Speaking of recent polls, did Brian ever release the results of the poll on how the blog feels about the B1G division names?

|5 years 5 weeks ago||So, assuming we win out, OSU||
So, assuming we win out, OSU wins out, and MSU and Wisconson win out except against OSU, there would be a three way tie between UM, OSU, and MSU.
Tie-breaker 1 does nothing, because all split our regular season series. Tie-breaker 2 comes into affect, and Wisconson is the first team that we compare against. OSU and MSU would each be 2-0 against Wisconson, and we would be 1-0. Therefore, we would get the third seed.
It's tough to project the standings past fourth, so I'm not sure who would end up winning the tie-breaker between MSU and OSU.
Does this seem correct?

How about three times? Once OOC, then The Game, and then again in the B1G championship game.

There are an infinite number of explanations as to why you couldn't see it/it didn't happen before. As to his arms shaking, he probably has them on his lap, and shaking his leg is making them shake. Really not concerned at all.

Okay, after seeing that, I went out and got multiple subscriptions to every newspaper that I could find. We all have to do our part.

Penn State agrees with you. They got rid of the blue collar this year.
