How does any official call an offensive foul against a guy being guarded by Smart? Might be the worst and most blatant flopper I’ve ever seen

05/17/2018 - 9:58pm Christmas vacation, Caribbean

Christmas vacation, Caribbean and bargain are pretty much 100% incompatible. If you want a bargain go the week before Xmas. Like the 19-23rd. Most hotels start jacking up rate on 23rd or 24th and/or have minimum stays and it gets more expensive the closer you get to New Years.

I’d probably stay away from DR and Jamaica as those are big vacation destinations and are probably overpriced and overcrowded during holidays. Belize is less well known and probably more reasonably priced.

05/08/2018 - 10:33pm Always restaurants/bars,

When I travel for work, I’m generally working my ass off so little time to do anything besides eat and drink and work out. For eating, I Always eat at restaurants/bars, never room service. Even if it means sitting at the shitty hotel bar. Plus Being from NY, I’m not opposed to walking relatively far away for dinner so that’s always an option. It’s easy to google to find good restaurants or bars in every city or occasionally I’ll just wander around til something looks good. With Google Maps it’s impossible to get lost. I’ve even done the same thing in Amsterdam when I was traveled there for work by myself. Found a cool looking restaurant online, walked there and back via google maps

I also always eat at the bar only and not a table and generally will look for a place with a TV at the bar so I can watch whatever generic sporting event is on. That way I’m not looking exclusively at my phone.

05/02/2018 - 4:56pm The 297 game streak is not a

The 297 game streak is not a sign of greatness, its just pure luck that he never got injured seriously enough to miss a game. If Eli Manning didn't have an inept coach and GM last year, he would be less than 5 seasons away from breaking the record.

04/26/2018 - 9:45pm Apparently the Bills front

Apparently the Bills front offices collective concussions caused them to draft a mediocre college QB at 7!

04/13/2018 - 6:45pm I think I read that surprise

I think I read that surprise onsides kicks are recovered by the kicking team 60% of the time. But expected onsides are only recovered like 10-15% of the time.

Under this new rule, teams would be stupid to try to return a short pop up kick from inside the 10.

04/10/2018 - 1:28pm Smart move would have been to

Smart move would have been to sit on the sidelines and remain silent.  Simliar to the article, I can't think of one benefit to Ole Miss objecting besides sheer pettiness.  They have already admitted they orchestrated a huge effort to lie and mislead everyone about the issue.  Just sit on the sidelines, take your lumps and try to move forward rather than rehashing an issue that they already admitted

03/28/2018 - 6:16pm This has nothing to do with

This has nothing to do with lawyers.  The lawyers fees are fairly typical for the big firms.   Why they thought it necessary to spend $500k monitoring social media trends for the victims is not only tone-deaf but I also don't see the point.  I guess that judgement and use of PR explains the horrible resignation letter from Simon

03/28/2018 - 1:53pm Was Langford ever good?  I

Was Langford ever good?  I asked that honestly as I don't remember.  Every time I see them play, it feels like he has 4pts and 4 fouls in 15 minutes

03/23/2018 - 10:27pm As expected, watching two 2-3

As expected, watching two 2-3 zone teams play each other is like watching paint dry

03/23/2018 - 9:45pm Pressure D giving nova fits?

Pressure D giving nova fits? They’ve scored 80+ points. What am I missing?

03/19/2018 - 9:52pm Which is exactly why Syracuse

Which is exactly why Syracuse is on the bubble every year but generally exceeds expectations in the tourney. The ACC teams that are familiar with the zone and prep for it as they will play them twice a year can beat them. Non-regular opponents, like those in a tournament, won’t have time to practice and excel at breaking the zone

03/18/2018 - 2:17pm These last four offensive

These last four offensive possessions by Purdue have been vomit inducing

03/18/2018 - 12:46am I love lamp!

I love lamp!

03/03/2018 - 10:06pm Amazing how they haven’t come

Amazing how they haven’t come to the realization that they have beaten jack shit this year. I mean their 2-3 wins against tournament teams are impressive and all but to think that they are a top 4 team is laughable considering their lack of strong wins

02/15/2018 - 10:20pm They’ll realize it as a fluke

They’ll realize it as a fluke of scheduling. MSU is 1-2 against tournament bound big ten teams

02/13/2018 - 3:19pm McAdoo spent two years as OC

McAdoo spent two years as OC and the Giants offense went from one of the worst to one of the top offenses in two years.  Eli had one of his worst season prior to McAdoo to one of his best in years.  When the Coughlin was forced out, they promoted McAdoo, which made no sense at the time - who cans the HC but basically keeps the rest of the staff intact.  The hope was the guy that revived Eli and orchestrated a high scoring offense would push the Giants over the top... Needless to say, this did not work out well.  

For some reason, as HC the Giants offense cratered, it was predicable, boring, unimaginative.  During the past two years, I dont think the Giants scored over 30 points and if they did, it was maybe once

02/11/2018 - 1:26pm Happ gets away with so many

Happ gets away with so many offensive fouls. Isn’t even shy about it. Blatantly pushing or chicken winging on every possession

02/04/2018 - 11:14pm Agreed. I think they were

Agreed. I think they were both catches but also think those same plays were overturned this year. I’m shocked they didn’t overturn the Clement catch and less so the Ertz one. I can almost guarantee that call stood due to the potential outrage if they overturned it.

02/02/2018 - 10:03pm Generally agree but the price

Generally agree but the price of sculpin is now borderline ridiculous. Out here in NY it is almost $15 for a sixer whereas 2 yrs ago it was $10-$11.

Dogfish Head 60 min IPA is a great and easily accessible IPA. Racer 5 and Firestone Walker are other great, well distributed IPA

For other beer types, I also like almost all offerings from Evil Twin, Singlecut, Troegs and Victory.

01/30/2018 - 1:22pm Putin - yet again you are so

Putin - yet again you are so ridiculously wrong.  Fried pickles should be in chip form only.  Maximize crunch to cuke ratio and then you don't wind up losing the crust on a bite and winding up with a warm naked spear with no crunchy coating.

01/27/2018 - 3:18pm I don’t know what the right

I don’t know what the right answer is but it’s clear that neither the school nor the local police department can handle cases a

01/26/2018 - 12:27pm I wonder if the axe is going

I wonder if the axe is going to eventually claim Izzo with the NCAA and other investigations and if they look into the Payne/Appling case

01/24/2018 - 9:23pm Agreed that I wouldn’t expect

Agreed that I wouldn’t expect her to admit anything but doubling down on the “politicization” is precisely the wrong move. All she had to say is that in light of the events she is no longer able to serve effectively. Instead she took the same idiotic stance of that trustee and made a bad situation worse.

01/24/2018 - 9:19pm And in case you were

And in case you were wondering if they finally got it, her resignation letter makes it’s crystal clear that MSU still does not get it. Tone deaf beyond belief.

01/17/2018 - 3:37pm Their cupcake schedule didn't

Their cupcake schedule didn't hurt them this year and I doubt it'll hurt them next year.  They played one team with a pulse and lost to them.  Their best win was a 4-loss LSU team

01/14/2018 - 6:56pm Yeah but with 2+ min left,

Yeah but with 2+ min left, they were going to run into the line three straight tins which is exactly what they did. His decision is not defensible.

01/05/2018 - 12:36pm Besides the whole "why now"

Besides the whole "why now" making little sense, I would like to know the logic behind determining what actions are bad enough to get suspended and banned from campus for two years but aren't bad enough to be kicked out of school or off the team.

01/02/2018 - 6:25pm It's a shopping list. He's

It's a shopping list. He's making brownies and needs to pick up bittersweet chocolate for the recipe.

12/28/2017 - 2:42pm Correct.  He benefitted(at

Correct.  He benefitted(at the time) by not having his football program tarnished by having a child molester preying on children in his locker room. 

12/25/2017 - 5:51pm In honor of this great job, I

In honor of this great job, I will dye my 17 chest hairs orange (FYI I'm 40) for my polar bear plunge on NYD.

12/23/2017 - 9:16pm EH Taylor, Bookers or Bakers

EH Taylor, Bookers or Bakers are all good choices and somewhat easily findable. Other options I like that are a bit less well known would be Jefferson reserve or ocean, Few bourbon or anything from High West (i prefer the campfire rye)

12/22/2017 - 9:43pm Is that him hangin in the

Is that him hangin in the locker? Baby brother always get hit with the atomic wedgie

12/22/2017 - 11:07am Trumplish?

Sounds Trumpian

12/21/2017 - 9:42pm Generic Big Ten announcer

Generic Big Ten announcer with the worst line ever. "Part Hawaiian............... .............and full big time shooter"

12/21/2017 - 9:37pm How is he getting worse at D?

How is he getting worse at D? You shouldn't get beaten like that by an 0-11 Alabama A&M player.

12/21/2017 - 9:36pm Definitely a block. Dude

Definitely a block. Dude slid under Poole when he in the air and was never set to boot. Don't understand why the basket wouldn't count though. Should be just like continuation.

12/10/2017 - 7:18pm Isn't he already out of the

Isn't he already out of the league? Thought he got fucked up in an ATV accident and was unlikely to play again, let alone in breach of his contract

12/07/2017 - 8:27pm There is just no consistency

There is just no consistency or logic. Last year no chance OSU gets in if they didn't beat Oklahoma on the road. This year in a similar situation, one loss, no conf championship, Bama got in despite not beating anyone (OOC or in conference play). Wisconsin won one more game than Bama but is otherwise comparable resumewise and they weren't even in contention. The committee still is failing where all prior pollsters failed.... by relying too much on preseason or early season rankings.

12/07/2017 - 8:19pm Apparently not every game

Apparently not every game counts. At least for Bama they don't.

12/05/2017 - 7:24pm But you are jumping to pump

But you are jumping to pump up Bamas schedule by doing what ifs and promoting LSU (lost to Troy) and MSU (4 losses and beat no on) and then criticizing OSU for only beating PSU by one point. OSU had three wins better than any one Bama win. Is that enough to overcome a brutal blowout? That I don't know. But if you looked at blind resumes, I'm not sure Bama looks all that much better than Wisconsin but only one team was maligned for a weak schedule

12/05/2017 - 4:43pm I think you are onto

I think you are onto something.  At least force P5 teams to play 9 games in conference and no FCS teams in order to qualify for the playoff and maybe even force each P5 team to play at least one other P5 team to be eligible. 

I would also love the last 2 weeks of the season (pre-playoffs/bowls) to be a mini-tournament type of the four best teams in each league (1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 and the winners face each other and the losers face each other).  The rest of the league can still play two more games against each other in some sort of predetermined fashion.  You settle the conf. championship, ensure each top team plays against 2 of the top teams in the league (instead of Wisco playing zero of the top teams until the championship game)

I would also like them to get rid of the divisions.  No reason to require a division just to identify the top two teams

12/03/2017 - 12:33pm And the SEC was, strong?  

And the SEC was, strong?   Those wins against Tennessee, Vandy and Arkansas were really great wins.

12/03/2017 - 10:56am Not really comparable.  OSU

Not really comparable.  OSU had the strong schedule last year beating Oklahoma at Oklahoma last year.    Bama doesn't have the same resume this year.  FSU tanked and they lost to the only strong team on their schedule

12/03/2017 - 10:53am UCF's best win is better than

UCF's best win is better than Bama's best win!

12/03/2017 - 10:53am and what does Bama have?  is

and what does Bama have?  is beating a 3 loss LSU that lost to Troy really that much more impressive than beating a 3 loss NW?

12/03/2017 - 10:49am How exactly does Bama deserve

How exactly does Bama deserve it?   By beating nobody?  Best win is LSU.  Second best win is..... a four loss Miss State?   Take away their names and their resume is awfully similar to Wisconsin.

I hate OSU but they have 3 wins over top 20 teams and Bama has 3 wins over teams with winning records.  

12/03/2017 - 9:53am Although I don't think they

Although I don't think they should be in, they compare awfully similar to Bama if you ignore names. Best win - LSU/NW. No other "signature" wins. Only loss vs a top 10 team. Bama has only beaten 3 teams with an over .500 record and they are only still being discussed because Bama

12/01/2017 - 10:31pm True but average QB play, if

True but average QB play, if not slightly better than mediocre QB play, would've won the OSU and probably the MSU games. These weren't cases of threading a needle but hitting a wide fucking open receiver with little to no pressure in his face.

12/01/2017 - 2:58pm Latest rumor is that Fulmer

Latest rumor is that Fulmer is soon to be announced as interim AD.  On what planet is hiring a former coach with a history of backstabbing people that was run off from his job to be an advisor to the president and now an interim AD a good idea....
