Replay booth at the big house

I had a guided tour of the big house and locker rooms last week and I was surprised to see that the official replay booth had 4 small rather outdated 24 inch (at most) computer monitors and one old small flat screen TV (at most 40 inches). I guess this explains why the reviews take forever and are of such questionable quality. For some reason I expected giant screens with 4k ultra HD. Considering the amount of money that changes hands based on their decisions I was shocked at how low-tech it was.

Whining about Referees

I loved Brian's Diary entitled Notre Dame Never Loses a Game. What a bunch of pathetic sour grapes. They sound like my 8 year old girl when she's whinny and crabby.

Brian makes a spot on statement about ND fans, that they are

whiners that "never actually lose a game." This is not surprising, since the internet Notre Dame fan's primary MO is to attack in others what he hates in himself. During the brief period when Lloyd Carr and Charlie Weis were both coaching the schools in question, this sort of person would refer to Carr as "man boobs" without irony. QED.

However, there is a warning in this for Michigan fans. If and when we lose a game, whether to PSU or TUOOS or in a bowl, I hope Michigan fans can shut up and take it like a man, and not whine about the officiating. There will always be bad calls, for and against you. Any time you lose a game because of officiating, you've lost partially because you left the game in the ref's hands. I get the feeling that RR is not a whiner, and I'm glad about that.

Sometimes, unfortunately, there is too much whining that I see here. Just like ND fans, when you whine and complain about how the angry Michigan hating God has it in for you, it doesn't make you look good. Quit with excuses, and move on. Das ist alles.
