03/19/2017 - 9:07pm Oregon was rolling over

Oregon was rolling over early, but now we've got a game.

I agree, this E.C. Matthews kid on RI (out of Romulus High) is awesome!

But with SMU out you're looking at (gulp) Baylor or duke :(

On Wisconsin!

I'm sure this was already discussed, but I was charmed by the singing. So relaxed compared to the frenzy of the weekend.

It would kill my bracket, but you gotta love Wisky's heart here!

Rhode Island bench celebration game is strong!

03/16/2017 - 9:06pm I heard the overunder for B1G

I heard the overunder for B1G wins was 6.5...so on average each of the 7 teams wins one. Not looking good!

03/16/2017 - 9:07am What I'm taking from this

What I'm taking from this comment is that "fudge chunk" is a sick burn. Not on a Shakespeare level, but still.

Also Godwin's law! Never fails!

03/16/2017 - 8:51am This is where a typewritten

This is where a typewritten conversation is disadvantageous because it's hard to get at nuances of meaning if you don't realize how something will be perceived in advance. To recap, not all trans people experience dysphoria. Those that do should have access to healthcare, which itself is not well sorted for mental illnesses in the public at large.

03/16/2017 - 8:41am Oh wow. I can't believe I

Oh wow. I can't believe I have never thought of this! From anecdotal evidence I would say this scenario is much more likely then chromosomal trisomies.

Although, if you're taking hormones to transition would you still self-categorize into your former gender for your sport? That seems philosophically inconsistent, but again as a society there is still a lot to be worked out here.

11/23/2016 - 6:16pm Maybe imma little punch drunk

Maybe imma little punch drunk whilst thanksgiving traveling but "girls love melted cheese" is making me laugh uncontrollably.

11/22/2016 - 9:21am People thought that was

People thought that was outrageous when he said it, but I thought it a fair point from his perspective!

11/21/2016 - 3:05pm It legit took me the rest of

It legit took me the rest of the weekend to warm up (I will never be a survivalist). A fitting end to that whole season-my first!

11/21/2016 - 2:54pm Agreed! Playing a trumpet

Agreed! Playing a trumpet outdoors in November for hours at a time is something I have done many times and cannot recommend!

The receiver stood there and waited...easy pick

11/19/2016 - 1:21pm Agreed.

Agreed.

MSU has multiple (actually no) qbs and they are still in it.

Wisconsin wayyyy too hyped to be beating Purdue

First TD of the day...Spartans?!

11/19/2016 - 12:10pm In middle school I kind of

In middle school I kind of liked that our basketball team was called the "Lady Destroyers" (after the local naval destroyers)...but aside from that example I heartily agree.

That pic is a real fork in the road...people that would lie face down on that carpet due to run of the mill bad fortunes vs. people who would need to be tranquilized (i.e. me)

Rose-Ivey: cool name. Horrible tackler.

Westerkamp's mustache creeps me out, though I guess it is movember

1000% pi...yes.

10/25/2016 - 7:43pm I remember as a tween in the

I remember as a tween in the nineties people saying: this will all die out once the real racists age out of power/die. Now I'm wondering if that was 100% delusion particular to my all white part of New England, or if it really is another surge whereby it's "fashionable" for (some) people in high school today, most obvious with fans cheering or players hazing in us/them scenarios. Some initial comments from school officials in this case make it clear they were NOT prepared for this to go national.

10/25/2016 - 7:16pm Last weekend my

Last weekend my brother-in-law asked me what I thought of the Steelers uniformz and I was all: I wish they had said 'trigger warning!'

10/15/2016 - 11:06am Strong to Oregon would be

Strong to Oregon would be good for him and also lead to interesting football. Get him away from the Texas booster "culture" that has only ever barely tolerated him. 

10/15/2016 - 10:44am obligatory

no politics :)

But my real comment is that I've been thinking about using shock collars for my dogs when we're deep in the woods, and the whole love vs. hate / inclusion vs. exclusion motivation stuff is really interesting to me. Also relates back to the Brian Kelly stuff on the board lately (and always).

The players all gave funny comments, good fluff for the team/coach.

I need to refuel...took me a minute to get this :)

09/24/2016 - 1:19pm These goal line Rutgers QB

These goal line Rutgers QB runs are deadly...to the poor souls that have chosen to spend money and support Rutgers.

09/23/2016 - 4:11pm I think it's the middle

I think it's the middle distance stare. And the hair.

This led me down a long thought experiment whereby Nicholas Sparks is commissioned to write a novel set in Happy Valley...Friday afternoon weirdness.

As the grandchild of a Red Cross-water-safety-instructor that paddling gif is pretty much peak mayhem.

That or the Jabrill gif, lol

09/19/2016 - 12:28pm Such an apt metaphor...got to

Such an apt metaphor...got to work that into my speech patterns ASAP

09/17/2016 - 8:24pm I could not get a feel for

I could not get a feel for the game...did Nebraska play well? I think Oregon mostly just let them get convert a 4th down and that was that.

09/17/2016 - 7:14pm I cannot stress enough how

I cannot stress enough how impressive Jackson was. They're both special but one of them was smacking FSU.

09/17/2016 - 7:10pm I listened to it on the radio

I listened to it on the radio so I didn't get to play body language doctor. But they won! Bang!

Especially since their running back is a supposed Heisman candidate.

I've been debating that. This is a program defining win...but if he were to get hurt people would be so pissed. 

09/17/2016 - 2:38pm Recency

Recency bias...LOUISVILLE!!!

Also, I like the chrome helmets, which I often don't.

09/17/2016 - 2:29pm Somebody called this earlier

Somebody called this earlier and I did not believe. So FSU and Rutgers, both second half teams lol.

09/17/2016 - 2:24pm But I always love venues

But I always love venues (like wrigley) where randos can watch from a distance

09/14/2016 - 11:29am I would pick ND.  MSU

I would pick ND.  MSU struggled against Furman but they're going to storm into South Bend and keep it close with a top 10 quarterback?

09/14/2016 - 11:17am Two things:"Tore a groin"

 

I flinched here: "Tore a groin" and tore a groin muscle seem to me to be different things.

Defense nitpicks (screens/contain) seem to be of the learning-our-nasty-tricks-in-real-time mode...excited to see it unfold!
