08/20/2018 - 2:41pm I realize this was a joke,…

I realize this was a joke, but they do in fact appear to be extremely bad.  They have no website or internet presence, and I saw them described somewhere as "made up of free agents from the Madrid area" which makes it sound like they are not really a team, but rather just a group of dudes who can't make an actual team.  Also they lost to Ohio State by 30 this offseason.

08/20/2018 - 12:42pm Should have gotten bought by…

Should have gotten bought by the superior cheese-flavored cracker and been named the Goldfish Bowl.

08/18/2018 - 8:40pm The tackle concern is…

The tackle concern is everyone's concern.  The punter thing is bespoke though, I like that.  Never heard that take before.

08/14/2018 - 12:59pm Well I've never seen a press…

Well I've never seen a press conference to announce someone was *not* getting fired.  I wonder what's next for his career.  If he can't safely be trusted as a head coach, hard to imagine he can safely be trusted as an assistant.

08/13/2018 - 9:10pm That offensive line tweet is…

That offensive line tweet is great news, but I didn't think that the problem with the O line was the run blocking.  Don't get me wrong, that wasn't good, but it wasn't their big problem.

08/10/2018 - 9:28am I have a noon to 3:30…

I have a noon to 3:30 layover, so if ESPN could do me a solid and put it on at noon, I'd appreciate it.

07/31/2018 - 9:08pm We will have a top-10 level…

We will have a top-10 level team against a really good schedule and the difference between playoff contender and 8-4 will come down to a few bounces against the better teams on the schedule.  After the last several years, I'll believe we actually get those when we get them.

06/27/2018 - 1:13pm I chose the "the book"…

I chose the "the book" option, but it never gave me a place to enter my shipping address.  It just says "ship to: anywhere in the world."  Unfortunately I did this as a guest, and did not make a kickstarter account, so I'm not sure if I can change it.

06/12/2018 - 12:01am I don't understand what is…

I don't understand what is going on but "Michigan got hosed on the luck aspect of the game as Ohio State . . . swept the 50-50" games.  Well imagine fucking that.

05/30/2018 - 9:33pm That Paul Giamatti

That Paul Giamatti skeptical/excited meme where the first panel says "3.5 stars" and the second one says "crystal ball to Clemson"

05/17/2018 - 5:32pm An Arsenal Man Will Coach

An Arsenal Man Will Coach Arsenal.  Seriously though, this is straight from the Brady Hoke school of club connections over accomplishment.

05/16/2018 - 12:40pm Update

It's in the article:  "Interim president John Engler has long said the costs will be covered by tuition and state aid.  Lawmakers have said no state aid should be used."

05/16/2018 - 12:15pm Unless it's covered by

Unless it's covered by insurance, its gotta come from somewhere.  I would guess it will be tuition payers not taxpayers.  I'm sure they'll say they aren't taking it out of tuition, but money is fungible and if you blow a $500 million dollar hole in the budged, you need more to cover everything else.

04/27/2018 - 10:04pm Me too. And look at my

Me too. And look at my (misspelled) name.

04/27/2018 - 9:56pm I get the heart thing and I

I get the heart thing and I get the under 300 lbs thing but JFC it's the second half of the third round and the universally-acknowledged best DT in college football hasn't been drafted.

04/26/2018 - 9:29pm That's the frog thing.

That's the frog thing.

04/13/2018 - 10:01am Second this question. 

Second this question.  Similarly DC and NoVa -- places that are in the metro area of a (fake) B1G school, but not in the actual state?  If not, I guess it's time to get on the phone with my friendly neighborhood Fios rep.

04/07/2018 - 9:25pm I kinda feel this too.  I'm

I kinda feel this too.  I'm sure it's fascinating and I will watch it sometime, but watching an 8-5 season unfold just seems like it would make me sad.

04/06/2018 - 9:43pm Let's do second favorite.  If

Let's do second favorite.  If your favorite isn't that, I don't now what to say to you.

Anyway, my second favorite was the first fifteen minutes of the Championship game.  I was there, and the Alamodome was electric until, you know, we bricked our way out of contention.

04/05/2018 - 9:33pm What time did Ohio

What time did Ohio State/Duluth end?  Does it take almost two hours to run a zamboni and warm up?

04/02/2018 - 1:39pm I am in San Antonio but

I am in San Antonio but supposedly was working remotely this morning before I head downtown.  I wrote two (2) paragraphs in like two hours. 

04/02/2018 - 11:49am I bought the full pass on

I bought the full pass on Sunday and I can honestly say, I did this the worst possible way.  Oh well, Go Blue.

Lol @ 300 hotel room. They’re charging $500+ at the La Quinta here.

03/30/2018 - 9:07am Flying down at six tomorrow

Flying down at six tomorrow morning.   Prognosis for a productive work day looking slim.  Go Blue.

03/26/2018 - 9:53pm They told me that too.  So

They told me that too.  So it's two just a dudes on the internet. 

I don't have points or season tickets but I asked so I would know what side to buy tickets on on the secondary market.

03/25/2018 - 6:59pm Happened six times ever and

Happened six times ever and we are four of them (sigh, Sparty is the other two).

03/25/2018 - 5:07pm Looking ahead

So will there be alcohol at the Alamodome?

n/m answered above.

College sports are for the students.  I'm glad they're making it affordable for them to go.

03/25/2018 - 11:27am I bought seats without

I bought seats without knowing anything last night, but if I could figure out what our section is I would sell those back and get seats in that section.  Anyone know?

03/25/2018 - 1:40am Everyone in the country

Everyone in the country (world?) is going to be against us, and it's kinda fun.

03/25/2018 - 1:25am I (jinxer of all jinxers)

I (jinxer of all jinxers) booked tickets out of DC for Saturday morning this morning.  Thank god I don't regret that. Got an airbnbn and tickets (I don't know what section it's in) a hour ago.

03/24/2018 - 11:31pm Sorry for hijacking but I

Sorry for hijacking but I want to get on stubhub tonight. Does anyone know what our side of the Alamodome is?

Also helllll yes go blue.

03/23/2018 - 9:51am Sharks

Slanderous to sharks, too.  Pretty sure they are not the problem.  

03/18/2018 - 11:48am And I remember the team

And I remember the team handing out free tickets on the diag ten years ago.  Just gotta take a breath about how things have changed.

03/18/2018 - 11:47am It's bizarre to say, but

It's bizarre to say, but we're not Duke, Carolina, or Kentucky, but outside of them who would you trade basketball programs with right now?

03/17/2018 - 2:49pm Beyond however good McNamara

Beyond however good McNamara may or may not ultimately be, this (and the rest of the 2019 class) is surely an encouraging sign that this year's class was a fluke and not a program in long-term decline.

03/17/2018 - 11:18am Ding, ding, ding, money is

Ding, ding, ding, money is fungible.  There's no such thing as paying out of one particular pot or another.

03/16/2018 - 9:15pm Things are already going

Things are already going better than they did for this year's class.

03/16/2018 - 8:31pm Pretty sure my memory is that

Pretty sure my memory is that (aside from those horrid alternates we wore like 14-15) we wear white in the first round if the better seed then maize thereafter (whether the better or worse seed, we can call them light or dark). 

03/16/2018 - 9:49am I mean to be fair here,

I mean to be fair here, yesterday's game was the second best slot we could have.  I'd rather stay up late than have at 12 or 2 or 4 and have to leave work for two hours.

03/16/2018 - 12:10am Ehhh put the worst game of

Ehhh put the worst game of the tournament against a 14 seed. Uuuugly, but I feel fine I guess.

03/15/2018 - 11:59pm I think its late enough now

I think its late enough now you can say "balls" on TV guys.

03/15/2018 - 11:54pm I'm absolutely going to lose

I'm absolutely going to lose it at that TV timeout after a 30 minute clock break.

03/15/2018 - 10:17pm I'm 29, worked til 7, and

I'm 29, worked til 7, and it's still been a pacing job to make it to 1 in the morning.

03/15/2018 - 10:07pm Just google it.  Pretty sure

Just google it.  Pretty sure there's a legal one for these, you don't have to dig into the fifth page of google to find something from a country with lax IP laws.

03/15/2018 - 10:02pm Agree

Last year for Oklahoma State I barely popped out of work for a couple hours.  Today I've been nervous for hours.  I guess maybe I should't have started pricing out flights to San Antonio last week.

Matta turned them down at the last minute.  New England OC to Colts style.

Mizzou(?) (the Tiger that's not 8 Ball the Tiger) looks so sad.
