Except the SEC only plays 8 conference games.

I'll go opposite with Peters..

What if I told you.... they were keeping him off tape.  All the good things he can do and mostly limitations he has.

Why let DC"s know exactly what he is before it happens.  Sure they will adjust after 1-2 series, but maybe that's all you need

11/08/2018 - 11:17pm Wake Forest team with a…

Wake Forest team with a backup Freshman Qb making his first start.  Wake will move up to the top 20 now

Get me up to 3025 so I can be a perfect square when it freezes.

11/05/2018 - 6:41pm Honestly,  That was one of…

Honestly,  That was one of the best reffed games of the year.

I know it's a low bar.

Yes, the holding on the Thomas kickoff was pretty crappy, but at that point they seemed to be calling anything on special teams while nothing during regular play.

There was a couple missed holds on Winovich, but otherwise a pretty solid game from the crew.  I would take them in Columbus any time

11/04/2018 - 3:16pm  I wouldn't want Saban to…

 I wouldn't want Saban to have a month to prepare for Michigan

11/03/2018 - 11:31pm Shit if I was Oklahoma I…

Shit if I was Oklahoma I would dump 5 million on his step and make him say no.

11/01/2018 - 7:41pm Freep has gotten stupid…

Freep has gotten stupid lately with the titles.  It's driving me nuts.

Example, when MIchigan- MSU time was announced:

News title  UofM- MSU set for Noon start

Freep Title UofM - MSU start time Announced.

It's like they forgot the 5 W's of journalism

10/27/2018 - 12:23pm They are playing Michigan…

They are playing Michigan every day.

10/27/2018 - 12:01pm Or

Or

We disagree with the Big Ten  and will look into pregame schedules so this doesn't arise again.

Simple.  Not taking blame.  Realizing there was an issue

10/27/2018 - 11:54am 2 spots open .  No…

2 spots open .  No incumbents running.  Other than that.  Their websites are just an mismash of they love MSU and wanting to keep tuition down.  

One of the canidate's daughter was a Volleyball player MSU and once treated by Nasser.  You can infer the rest.  Miller I believe.

Hopefully others can provide better information.

10/27/2018 - 11:40am Which ones?  I tried…

Which ones?  I tried perusing their websites last week.  No incumbents running thank goodness.

Let me know and I'll vote for them

10/27/2018 - 11:37am Wow!  Engler don't you have…

Wow!  Engler don't you have better things to do then worry about a rounding error in the athletic department budget.

Nothing like the pettiness of a Spartan.

Probably start with a Pisco Mint smash,  with fresh mint from my plant.

Then probably a take on a old fashioned with Watermelon vinegar with Maker's

Best Bourbon for the price around!

10/25/2018 - 3:35pm It's literally designed to…

It's literally designed to take the life out of you.  My wife isn't crafty,  but I like to buy frames there for sports memoribilia mostly.

Every time,  one or two frames and it takes 15 minutes to check out.  Usually because there's some one trying to buy things with 14 coupons, one doesn't work, they have a return or returning it to reuse a coupon or get a better price.

Get two lines Michaels, one for quick sales/ten items or less and the other for that nonsense.

Going old school with a dedicated customer service desk would work too.

10/25/2018 - 1:59pm Where did I put my…

Where did I put my Lightsaber? 

10/24/2018 - 9:28am It's insane that people were…

It's insane that people were questioning his commitment to the program when he literally turned down Clemson money to come here.

The recruiting pitch is that it is a 40 year decision not a 4 year one.  Although, when portions of the fanbase do this stuff it ruins it

10/22/2018 - 12:35pm Basketball rankings are even…

Basketball rankings are even more pointless than the football polls (besides the FPC).

Cancer.

Terrorism.

Whether Ben Affleck will be a good Batman.

10/15/2018 - 1:39pm Onside Kicks yes..  Or the…

Onside Kicks yes..  Or the Transcontinental or reverse on a Kickoff return.  

The two punt returners is a favorite too.

Just kick it out of the endzone please

10/14/2018 - 12:53pm So you want the soccer…

So you want the soccer yellow card system?  I'm not sure that would work.   So a defense could rack up 11-14 yellow cards a game and no yardage?  We're trying to make the game safer.

The roughing the snapper is a player safety concern.  It wasn't a strong call,  but it probably needs to be called 

10/11/2018 - 2:11pm Hey I've got an idea,  Let's…

Hey I've got an idea,  Let's put David Terrell on  Plaxico Burress.  I mean it's genius..

10/10/2018 - 10:19pm From the spirit of the game,…

From the spirit of the game, the offense is wasting two players on 1, thus already disadvantaging itself.

Not saying it's right.  But I understand the logic.

10/06/2018 - 11:06pm Look we're going to accept…

Look we're going to accept that all Big 10 refs suck.

But I didn't recognize the referee of this crew and  I took that as a good omen.

Tru Wilson hold aside,  I think they had a good game.  They did tend to take over in the 3rd quarter, maybe slow down the calls there.

Honestly, if it was this crew in Columbus,  or Lansing instead of O'Neill, Capron would you complain?

09/30/2018 - 1:48pm Yes, they watched all 20…

Yes, they watched all 20 relevant games this week in the time their game ended and when their votes were due at 10 AM

James Franklin was so worried he took the 4th quarter to watch earlier games

09/22/2018 - 11:45pm Except, you know Harbaugh…

Except, you know Harbaugh basically made it a precursor  for coming here.  

Lets face it.  A non big 10 champion Michigan is not getting into the playoffs.  That basically means beating OSU or getting 5 lucky dominos to fall.

09/22/2018 - 4:58pm Hopefully we burned him for…

Hopefully we burned him for this year and he doesn't  show up @ MSU , or PSU

09/20/2018 - 10:31pm Classic Friday afternoon…

Classic Friday afternoon media dump. 

09/20/2018 - 7:54pm Great.  Now we will never…

Great.  Now we will never get it.

09/20/2018 - 2:42pm He still will be defensive…

He still will be defensive lineman player of the year over Winovich and Gary.

09/14/2018 - 3:16pm C'mon Damon wouldn't touch…

C'mon Damon wouldn't touch that.  Gotta think B level or C level.

James Van Der Beek..  They can tie it into the Varisty Blues franchise as well

Two generations of built in fan bases.  Get me a script!

With 2 weeks of data, what is the ceiling/floor record of the team?

09/07/2018 - 3:00pm I don't know it's a hard job…

I don't know it's a hard job.  155 games a year. 3 hours minimum a game for what 15 years now.

Plus flights and bus trips and planning.   Not many people spend that much time with their significant others. 

09/07/2018 - 2:36pm They shuffle Mario to a…

They shuffle Mario to a different team .  Remember they are Fox Sports employees technically.  Rod gets put back to the Diamonbacks.

They make due with with Gibson, Monroe and maybe Morris for a year.  Bring in a new PBP guy or poach Dickerson from radio.

I'd be cool with Josh Lewin, he knows Gibby.  He wasn't bad for those awful teams

09/05/2018 - 7:02pm Wait until most teams are…

Wait until most teams are all digital and no hard tickets.  Like the Wings and Pistons, and probably soon the Tigers.  They will be the only game in town.  The fees go up the Pro teams get a nice kickback for being the 'official ticket reseller of _____ " 

Meanwhile the season ticket holder gets screwed because Stubhub gets fees from the seller too,  and the ticket broker bots will undercut any price.

They will hide behind cost,  counterfeiting (printing pdf's),  and controlling who comes into the stadium.  All of these just hide the fact it's about money.

2nd half Offense ends at 435.   Only the first series of the 4th quarter

08/09/2018 - 2:39pm Wait they brought that back!…

Wait they brought that back!.. Rushing out now

07/26/2018 - 2:06pm The rise in staffing and…

The rise in staffing and salaries statistics are even worse when  calculated correctly.

253 people in its athletic department at an average salary of $73,382.64 in 2010-2011, per state records. Just seven years later, in 2017-18, there are 368 employees (up 31.3 percent) at an average salary of $99,310.58 (up 26.1 percent).

368 - 253 /  Divided by the Original is 253  = 45.5% increase!

99300-73000  /  73300 = 27.4% 

Almost adding 50% more staff?  

Did they add any more sports? 

 

03/26/2018 - 8:04pm No Seratore?

Wow I'm shocked just so the announcers can talk about having the Super Bowl and Final 4 for 5 minutes.

03/26/2018 - 7:07pm Wymer

Wymer did the Houston game.  I thought he actually was keeping the game in check while the other 2 whistled everything against us.

He's pretty horrible, maybe because he gets paired with Valentine consistently as Big 10's #1 crew.

03/25/2018 - 12:15am Duncan

He knew Duncan had scored 6+ points.  The game was over.

03/25/2018 - 12:01am Hey Coach Cal?

You want a photo of the Alamo?

03/08/2018 - 11:16pm Walter White

If Beilein is Walter White, is Jordan Poole his Jesse Pinkman?

03/08/2018 - 11:13pm My geuss

I told you this was my fucking state 

03/08/2018 - 10:38pm Just got through Iowa

I just watched the Duncan Dagger 3 for Iowa  10 times.  It's memorizing.  The net doesn't even move.

There's a reason even the announcers drool over his shot, its a work of art.

03/04/2018 - 8:46pm Look at Duncan

He can't even contain his excitment!

03/02/2018 - 8:24am Power surge

MLB hides behind the fact that the balls conform to their standards.  The standards have broad tolerances, so effectively means nothing.

They are juiced.  Hoskins, Judge, Trea Turner come to the majors and hit more homers in a half season than complete seasons in the minors.  

There's more examples.

02/25/2018 - 10:30pm Starter

Balvenie Doublewood is a good introduction.

But people are right, trying a JW Black is probably the best thing.

Dang, Lagavulin went up in price since the last time I bought it.

02/24/2018 - 12:01am 1998

Was UCLA  see above.  Apparently many people think that.

I don't remember it.  But if you allow somone to take 27 shots, maybe the bench is in order.
