Sometimes I wish people would remember and appreciate the Kenpom ranking I used to have, instead of just focusing on "What's wrong with you tonight? Do you even want to play? Do you even have passion for the game?" But it's just that the season is a little older now, you have to be patient, it takes a little bit longer to warm up and get up and down the court. Is what they probably are saying.

Malloe at Washington specializes in those PAC12 Polynesian kids that make up huge chunks of those teams. I don't see any way to pry a guy like him to the B1G.

I sort of named my rival in the new Pokémon game Quavaris, maybe that is the universe speaking to him?

10:00AM Mountain time for me, I'd do it.

Same. The protagonists from the last 2 AC games have been the best parts.

Did you get one of the (definitely canvas) bags?

12/06/2018 - 3:52pm Right, kind of my take on…

Right, kind of my take on why Skyward Sword was so poorly received. Great story, great ideas, AWFUL execution because it shoehorns in the Wii motion controls so heavily. I'd love to see a Switch remaster where they allow a more Zelda-style gameplay, or even a BoTW follow-up.

12/06/2018 - 3:49pm Nice! I agree, I thought the…

Nice! I agree, I thought the storytelling was a huge plus in this game, as was the "feel" of playing as Spider Man. It's getting to a point though where it's becoming a chore to finish each of the districts, doing the same little things over and over. I like the challenges, they have a unique feeling to them trying to get the Ultimate awards, but maaaaaaaan the Sable and crime fights are a bog. 

12/06/2018 - 3:43pm I think this one takes the…

I think this one takes the good things RDR1 does and builds on them really well. It's probably my game of the year, and I play way too many video games. I think if you're not accustomed to the style, it may feel repetitive, but everything to it has a purpose. I've been playing Spider Man trying to finish 100%, and THAT is repetitive- you fight the same enemies, you do the same challenges, you press the same buttons, etc. It's feeling like a chore at the end of the game, and I hate it when that happens to good games.

Nice! Just got another season.

So Nintendo did make a remaster of Goldeneye for Wii in 2010, and to me, it was hot garbage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GoldenEye_007_(2010_video_game) I might have just been nostalgic for the first one though.

Have you watched Cosmos yet? I've really been enjoying that.

A Raspberry Pi- it's basically a mini computer, but they've built gaming console (NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, etc.) emulators specifically for them that are really cool. It works off of HDMI for display/audio, and is super customizable. I love mine, it has a massive classic library on it. Check this video for some demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4CgoPuo3Dw

For your NES, I've seen issues in the past with HDMI conversion with the framerates not being compatible for new TV's so there are leftover scan lines and things that don't quite capture how you'd want them to. Pi is a better way to play on new TV's, but you can still plug into an old tube TV or try to use the A/V (YRW) plugs.

Better this than the new Assassin's Creed if you're looking for an especially long game. 

12/06/2018 - 3:19pm I think repetitive and…

I think repetitive and boring are the wrong words. It does a really good job of keeping me entertained, even with the mundane stuff- taking a bath, brushing my horse, etc. You'd think it'd be lame, but it's kind of therapeutic in the midst of heists and gunfights. 

12/06/2018 - 3:18pm Trying to finish up with the…

Trying to finish up with the Platinum on Spider Man (PS4) tonight before Smash comes out tomorrow, then that'll keep me busy for a while. As far as old games? This is about the time of year when I like to take out my SNES and blast through some classics (Castlevania, Donkey Kong, etc.), since my kids are old enough to enjoy them with me and we're inside anyway.

Sitting in bed with my wife at night, just listening to her watch those Instagram videos is just blatant ads being thrown at her from "influencers" for what seems like hours on end, we're living in an interesting time.

I honestly don't mind the ones that are clearly embedded into articles, as I can just scroll past. The ones that bother me are the top & bottom banners that require precision thumbwork to hide just so I can try to get into the boards from the hamburger menu.

I think that's a pretty safe assumption at this point. Heisman candidate, takes his team to the brink of (if not all the way there) the playoff after a near-disastrous second half of the season, I think his stock is sky high right now. He'd be insane not to go.

OSU would still get in over us because of the H2H blowout

He retweeted @Birm: Michigan loses a DE commit - something tells me this was probably not the player’s decision, ultimately.

Respectfully disagree (on the lack of impact, not the fact that Haskins throws short). The quick throw means a grip right off the snap is vital. A wet ball makes that extraordinarily difficult. While it would impact the deep ball as well, the QB actually has time to stretch his fingers out on the laces.

Frig, as in frigate? Sounds nice.

It was about Chase, he was just posting on Twitter that he saw Chase's Instagram where he said he'll be back

Syracuse at 12 is being crazy generous. High ceiling, but very rarely scrape it. I think ND wins by a couple scores.

Top 5 early 90's sitcoms? Because I was thinking the copy of Wings would be the classic DVD set featuring Tim Daly and Steven Weber.

Can’t find anything. The subreddit where I usually get my streams looks like it was banned.

Who would the competition next year be? Most of the top guys this year are a lock to go pro. Also, I'm too lazy to Google.

Can I add Don Brown and LaVall Jordan? Immediate impact, nationally recognized dudes.

I can't remember perfectly, but didn't it call the MSU and Wisconsin games almost spot on?

Lots of people here in Utah call the University of Utah "The U". If you drive more than 30 miles in any direction from it, though, Miami is what everyone else refers to as "The U".

Thanks for compiling this list! Interesting to average it out, rather than take one or another.

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with it being nice to have a huge lead in the second half on grounds of BPONE.

If you're open to non-UM/sports stuff as a whole, I'm in my car for 2.5 hours every day so I rip through podcasts like crazy. My recommendations: My Brother My Brother and Me (comedy), Hardcore History (history, obviously), Dirty John & Dr. Death (different series but interesting listens), How Did This Get Made? (comedy, Jason Mantzoukis and Paul Scheer reviewing terrible movies), Reply All (technology), Serial (crime), The Giant Bombcast (video games).

His initial tweet spelled "IMMEADIATELY" in #5. Many were quick to point that out, looks like he's made the edit and thrown it back up. Great stuff.

I was in NC for work for a few weeks, and one of the main things I remember was being in Walmart during a storm (not a bad one, by any means), and mobs of people buying up every gallon of milk, every loaf of bread and every carton of eggs. I mean, just piling those items up in their carts. It was the most interesting take I've ever seen on emergency preparedness. In any case, stay safe out there.

Edit: I should add, I was there because it was the night of the re-release of Hostess products. I bought Twinkies while everyone else was getting their french toast essentials.

Just have the seller walk with you to the gate to ensure they work, then you're good.

What if it were 2 rivals coming together against a common enemy? What if both ND and UM fans had anti-OSU signs?

I'd honestly love to see full anti-OSU signage at the first Game Day this year. I think it's something both ND and UM fans could pull together on.
