We have dudes named Haskins and barret?  Hmmmm...

It’s a mocking of Zach Smith when he went off about Tom Herman.

The redskins losing two is a tough one. Obviously winning out is required, but still...also #6 is necessitated already by  #1.

In the south, it’s heat. The grass surface provides at least a 20 degree field level reduction over artificial. They could get a cooling system, but maintaining grass in the south is usually pretty easy.

Yeah this game just got rather difficult

Damn. Didn’t know India had an ncaa D1 squad. There really are a lot of teams in D1 bball

The ignoring it part is not really possible. I mean, for Michigan it’s easy, just don’t abide by the scholarship reduction that would certainly take place. But Delany and the conference would almost certainly deny any championship game and no bowl game would pick us.

As a resident of Columbia SC, can we please beat the gamecocks one freaking time...just once! In any sport! 

12/06/2018 - 7:23pm Add them to the west, it’ll…

Add them to the west and give us Illinois or northwestern, it’ll be fine. 

 

Edit: better yet, add Texas to the west, Oklahoma to the east, and boot out Rutgers and Maryland. Then give us northwestern or Illinois.

Love it but damn it’s expensive to get enough credits to buy half decent clubs.

And Emily ratajkowski is my first choice to get into bed with, but that doesn’t mean anything either.

12/05/2018 - 1:27pm They can’t use it because…

They can’t use it because they can’t adopt it. (Adopting is the process of the prof telling the bookstore what book they will use, which they are contractually obligated to do). In some cases you can, and in some cases the bookstore can find copies out there, but there’s no guarantees and the bookstore has a thousand other courses to order for, not just yours. So this extremely time consuming task is very difficult. 

Edit: that’s not to say the student can’t use it. Like you say, approach the professor and find out. I’m talking strictly from the bookstore side. The professor has to declare the official book that will be used this semester. If you decide to get an older one, by all means go for it. Sometimes that’s ok. Others, not so much.

12/05/2018 - 12:36pm Let me help you with this …

Let me help you with this (Wife does this line of work)

 It is the publishers that are scamming you. In some cases professors too (forcing you to buy their self-authored book). The publisher is the one that “changes” the book by switching the chapter arrangement around and some problems in the back of the book. Then, of course, they will no longer publish the previous edition. The bookstore can no longer buy the previous edition to sell to you, so the professor can’t use it. 

The bookstore and the university do get a cut, but it’s not what you think. The bookstore wants to keep reselling that used book at a much lower price because now they’re making a crap ton of profit, and you save a bunch if money. There’s no really reason that $200 stats book can’t be $80 used. The bookstore makes more from that $80 than the new $200 one. Don’t get be started on rentals. Those are even better for both parties. 

But, trust me, it’s the publishers. They control everything.

Politics? I have no idea what his politics are (though by this I assume he’s an anti-Trump, which - surprise  - he’s a Hollywood actor) but I just don’t find him funny. I didn’t like 30 rock, what can I say? I know I’m in the minority, but I just didn’t like it. Oh well. Moving on. 

12/04/2018 - 9:45pm The only funny thing Alec…

The only funny thing Alec Baldwin ever did, but it was damn good. Pete Schwette and his Christmas balls on NPR.

I’ve seen that many times and don’t remember that being used. When and who says it?

12/04/2018 - 8:52am Really? How’d that work out…

Really? How’d that work out for them the last time, or the time before that? Or the time before that?

12/04/2018 - 8:24am Only time I’ve ever heard …

Only time I’ve ever heard “fuck stick” used was in Bad Santa

12/04/2018 - 6:54am Don’t know where rittenberg…

Don’t know where rittenberg is getting his info. There has been nothing public. However, you’re right that he was the big ten reporter for a while, so I’m sure he has some sources that tell him this. I’m thinking we’d know about this and it probably should have said “may” be without several draft eligible stand outs.

This is excellent. Learned a lot here. Basketball looks more random to me than it actually is.

Brian said In the podcast interview  he has no desire nor does he see a need to do that. A premium membership would be, amongst a few other perks being suggested here, roaming the site ad-free. 

Edit: he also said there’d be some type of package that might include, for example, a copy of HTTV and a shirt or something.

Kinda surprised we don’t have a #1 vote based on results thus far.

All I can hope is that he’s a good as his brother

I agree so maybe they get an auto bid with the stipulation they must be ranked in the top, I don’t know, say 15.

The NFL doesn’t care who you play for, nor should they. 

12/02/2018 - 4:10pm I get being unexcited that…

I get being unexcited that it’s Florida. But not being in Jan 1 is not a thing. You actually don’t want to be in Jan 1 anymore, with the lone exception of the Rose Bowl. With that as a criterion you would be unexcited with a semi final game. 

12/02/2018 - 1:49pm It is. You can live in…

It is. You can live in. Notre Dame, Indiana. Now is it a city, town, village, etc? Not sure which, but it’s absolutely a boundary with a name. 

12/01/2018 - 6:33pm That’s not possible. We’re…

That’s not possible. We’re going to a NY 6

12/01/2018 - 6:20pm Wow. This is surprising 

Wow. This is surprising

That should be a TD Alabama. He clearly had it back in his hands before being knocked out again. 

12/01/2018 - 4:01pm Wow. Memphis up 14-0 early…

Wow. Memphis up 14-0 early over UCF

12/01/2018 - 3:40pm Ballgame. Now...is it…

Ballgame. Now...is it convincing enough to put them in over osu?

12/01/2018 - 2:51pm Wtf?

Wtf?

12/01/2018 - 1:25pm I disagree. Head to head…

I disagree. Head to head matters a lot, yes. But come on , measure the two teams resumes and OSU has one terrible loss and one pretty bad loss. Michigan has one shit game, and it was against a top 10 team. OSU has one already against a terrible opponent. Losing to NW would be too much to stay ahead of Michigan. Head to head takes you a long way, but does not erase two turds worth. 

12/01/2018 - 1:21pm This is ridiculous. OU needs…

This is ridiculous. OU needs to pick it up. They are playing their way right out of the playoff. 

12/01/2018 - 8:28am theres usually one big chaos…

theres usually one big chaos week per year, and I can’t really remember one yet this season. Am I misremembering? Maybe this is that week?

12/01/2018 - 6:42am Didn’t he dive on his 90th?

Didn’t he dive on his 90th?

Kick the field goal. Get up two scores with 5 mins left.

I Guess TECHNICALLY that’s a pick.

Happy Friday!!! Wooo!!!!

Don’t want to get rid of helmets. Too much incidental head to head contact, especially along the OL and DL coming together however, soft helmets (like many in rugby) would be good. 

11/28/2018 - 8:52pm So, is Miami terrible? Or is…

So, is Miami terrible? Or is Rutger not super terrible?

11/28/2018 - 11:51am Give me LSU in the peach. 

Give me LSU in the peach. 

11/27/2018 - 9:31pm No it doesn’t. That’s…

No it doesn’t. That’s already factored in to this weeks rankings. If both win next week, osu’s is over a much lower ranked team than OU, who plays a top 15 team. 

11/27/2018 - 8:01am Jokes on you. That’s not…

Jokes on you. That’s not happening. 

11/26/2018 - 12:07pm The worst part is that this…

The worst part is that this game will make urbans headaches magically stop happening. The media will forget about it after they win the rose bowl (or god forbid make the playoff because OU can’t take care of Texas) and it will never be mentioned again. He’s not leaving OSU, not anymore now that he will have a conference championship. The masses will be happy enough with him
