Standard Thursday night open thread.  

 

Thus far NC State was moving down the field, but the NC State recievers are opting to not catch the ball.

More accurately, we're helping EDSBS get their meme more page hits on Google. And didn't they just stumble across it on Wikipedia? Either way, it's one of the funnier memes.

On an unrelated note, anyone have any thoughts on the rivalry? Does anyone think jersey sales help at all?

Orson wrote a post about Craig James being a dick for using his media platform to lie and get a coach fired, and one of the commenters did a "I can deny the shameful rumors that Craig James killed 5 hookers at SMU" rant, and then someone changed the Wikipedia page, and then signs were made, and it just spiraled.  

It might be the best thing they've ever done.  It's approximately 6500000x funnier than the "Fuck Clemson" thing.

That CRAIG JAMES KILLED 5 HOOKERS WHILE AT SMU.    There is an alternate theory that CRAIG JAMES KILLED 5 HOOKERS WHILE AT MSU.  

I'm not sure where this terrible rumor started.  I just thought he was a douche for hiring a PR firm to plant stories on the internet.   I think the CRAIG JAMES KILLED 5 HOOKERS WHILE AT SMU meme is what Shakespeare would call hoist with his own petard.

after I graduated from Michigan. Four makes it sound more improve than it is, but I still have diplomas from 4 colleges, 3 of which are universities.
Got an a.d. in nursing at another school, finished a b.s.n. in columbus then went to cinci for grad school. Nothing really advanced. No phd or anything like that.
None of the schools I graduated from will ever play eachother. A.d.n was a community college, b.s.n. Was a private (small) lutheran? college. Then Cinci.
But it gives me a good number of teams to root for.

Tour the campus and walk with the students to the game. The older two will especially like that since they'll be in college in no time. Make sure to get there early enough to watch the band. Have them yell WOOOOO! at everyone hanging out in front of a house on the way.

The Big East commercials are terrible... The ones featuring the mascots are especially bad and add yet another reason that Michigan should not have a mascot roaming the sidelines.

Cincy's kicker just nailed a 48-yarder. Even though I'm a fan (and an alumnus of UC), it kinda irks me to see "lesser" teams with incredible kickers and ours be sucky year in and year out. We wouldn't even dream of attempting a 48-yarder -- much less making one.
