Way to go Duncan. D III ftw.

It’s this-guy-needs-to-be-fired unless you’re an uneducated Ohioan.

Yup and this is true for anyone who thinks their web link is a good replacement for an app.

This is an epidemic with modern web design. Need to find ways to be more compact. The old site was slightly bad but this new one is way worse.

Yup when logging in and when clicking on a username. And portrait mode on iPhone is missing text and reply buttons deep in threads (well 2 levels deep).

05/02/2018 - 12:47am Even I,

A Royals fan, am embarrassed that the '81 Royals made the playoffs with a record 3 games under .500 (strike shortened season with pre-strike winners playing the post-strike winners).  Don't change a thing, except maybe dropping back to 154 games and tilting the schedules to more intra-division play.

04/03/2018 - 11:09am Same here

And loved the Rob Lowe apology tweet.

04/03/2018 - 11:06am Maybe next year

I'll be able to keep the tv on and watch this shining moment thing everyone talks about. Great run this year and here's to next year being even better.

03/31/2018 - 11:42pm More roadkill

03/31/2018 - 11:05pm Death to all

Wildcats.

03/31/2018 - 10:54pm Note to Self

You're gonna lose.

03/31/2018 - 10:37pm Ha I thought it was a bicycle horn

...and I thought it was someone in the audience doing it until I finally figured out it was happening for basketball reasons.

03/24/2018 - 7:05pm Five minus seed

For each score. Way to Go Blue! Beat BU.

03/24/2018 - 2:32pm I think it

Took me five years to figure out the Staples Center was related to the store. Duh. Rock it tonight.

03/24/2018 - 10:18am I've never seen

A better use of Tennessee Bird Walk... But for the original https://youtu.be/4-OrVQaqkg0

03/23/2018 - 12:19am that about wraps it up

for Gonzaga.  Can't understand why they didn't start (non-flagrant) fouling earlier.

03/23/2018 - 12:07am Do it

K State!

03/22/2018 - 10:20pm Section 1's summary of the Boren story

is pretty decent at the end of http://mgoblog.com/content/boren-loser

Go Pick North...Go Blue...hate the fact one of the stupid boren dumpsters is sitting out back of Pickerington North.

Traitors

03/22/2018 - 9:44pm Wire to wire

bang.  Fun one to watch.

03/18/2018 - 1:19am Scared the dog

With the yelling. Splash!

03/09/2018 - 12:00am Yup

Why not pick up the Pavilion and move it down state for big brother?  They had a program from '66 til '96, in the CCHA at the end. 

UIC Trivia:

  • Dustin Hoffman's office in Stranger Than Fiction was in a UIC building
  • Once was considered one of the best examples of Brutalist architecture in the US (take that, MSU)  Most of the dark, damp covered walkways held up by concrete "trees" have since been removed.
  • Chicago Cubs' most successful ball field (back to back World Series) was located on what is now UIC campus land
02/21/2018 - 12:07am Enjoy the free time Carl

Ah, for the days when Carl was announcing the MMB performances every other year here in Pickerington!

12/04/2017 - 2:01am Funny I only had to go to Newport

Kentucky for the stingrays.  Go Blue

11/18/2017 - 10:36am had to debate this

same topic at dinner last night.  Harbaugh isn't going anywhere.

11/18/2017 - 10:27am Michigan

21-20

11/02/2017 - 6:39pm Both UFRs

Have 4th quarter instead of 2nd for the summary of the final drive of the first half. Do I win a prize?

10/27/2017 - 8:56pm Love watching the various

Alaskan reality shows.  I think "Brian the Bear" has some real potential for the DIscovery Channel.

10/19/2017 - 2:37pm We win

By .5 points.

10/06/2017 - 10:20pm Ahhh love it to see the Yankees

lose.  Great Bluejackets game tonight. 

Oh, Bourbon and OJ.

 

10/06/2017 - 10:15pm Can you picture

Every Big Ten team, plus ND, Texas, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State pairing up for simultaneous games with 220,000 watching (although only 56,000 get seats)?

Field size 9 football pitches
(total 310.5 x 202.5 m)

09/30/2017 - 12:32am Both of us sitting here

thought there was a Michigan ad on ESPN...seems like USC plagiarized and threw in some ocean shots.

09/30/2017 - 12:01am Go

Bears!

09/29/2017 - 11:48pm As long as you are not using

a speculum as you speculate.

09/24/2017 - 3:41pm went thru last 10 years

of polls (ok, ok, all that is on TV is Browns vs Colts here).  Could not find any 0-2 teams ranked.  But did learn you can't search for parentheses and hyphens with search engines, which makes looking for "(0-2)" on ranking websites a challenge.

AP/Coaches Poll Ranked teams with no wins (ignoring 0-0), last 10 years:

Year AP/Coaches Team Record Prev AP / Coaches Loss
'07: 24/24 Tennesee 0-1 15/15 12/12 California
'08: 24/25 Illinois 0-1 20/19 6/7 Missouri
'08: NR/22 Clemson 0-1 9/9 24/NR Alabama
'09: 13/14 Oklahoma 0-1 3/3 20/24 BYU
'09: 14/15 Va Tech 0-1 7/7 5/5 Alabama
'09: 21/21 Georgia 0-1 13/13 9/11 Okla St
'10: 13/13 Va Tech 0-1 10/6 3/5 Boise St
'10: 25/NR Oregon St 0-1 NR/NR* 6/7 TCU
'11: 13/14 Oregon 0-1 3/3 4/4 LSU
'11: 25/25 TCU 0-1 14/15 NR/NR Baylor
'12: 19/19 Michigan 0-1 8/8 2/2 Alabama
'13: 11/12 Georgia 0-1 5/5 8/8 Clemson
'13: 24/25 TCU 0-1 20/20 12/13 LSU
'14: 18/19 Wisconsin 0-1 14/14 13/13 LSU
'14: 22/21 South Carolina 0-1 9/9 21/20 Texas A&M
'14: 23/24 Clemson 0-1 16/16 12/12 Georgia
'15: NR/24 Wisconsin 0-1 20/18 3/3 Alabama
'16: 14/13 Oklahoma 0-1 3/3 15/13 Houston
'16: 18/21 Notre Dame 0-1 10/9 NR/NR Texas
'16: 19/18 Ole Miss 0-1 11/12 4/4 FSU
'16 21/22 LSU 0-1 5/6 NR/NR Wisconsin

* in 2010, Oregon State was ranked 22/24 when they played TCU in Week 1, but didn't enter poll until Week 2

Repeat offenders: Clemson, Oklahoma, Va Tech, TCU, Wisconsin

Best teams to lose to in first week and still stay ranked: Alabama (4 times), LSU (3 times)

This year is crazy to have Florida stay in the poll at 0-1 for 2 weeks and FSU do it for 3 weeks, with an added week at 0-2 in the coaches poll.

 

09/24/2017 - 1:36pm Michigan

dropped out of AP and Coaches polls immediately after App State and did not return to AP Top 25 until they were 5-2.  Coaches didn't bring them back in the top 25 til a week later, at 6-2.

09/24/2017 - 12:16pm It's

a metaphor.

09/23/2017 - 11:13pm Well that stadium

sure got quiet.

09/23/2017 - 11:11pm tuned in for just the last 4 min

dang good drama here in Iowa

09/20/2017 - 10:50pm Yeah, that's what I thought when I was in the AI field...

...30 years ago.  But yeah, maybe soon...

09/18/2017 - 11:08pm Go with the

Peanut Butter burger.

09/18/2017 - 10:11pm Maybe you'd prefer

This fellow's ratings: http://collegepolltracker.com/football/pollster/jon-wilner/2017/week-4.

There are all sorts of Bozos out there creating these rankings.  Michigan #4??

09/10/2017 - 10:20pm And then there

is M*ch*g*n.  Dis-emvoweling us is just such a burn.

09/10/2017 - 2:42pm Same thing

The talking heads said on TV after the game here in Cbus

09/09/2017 - 11:19pm Wearing blue

all week in Columbus!  Thank you Oklahoma.

09/09/2017 - 10:44pm Oh

is this sweet.

09/08/2017 - 11:29pm It does need to be mutual

to shorten the length of remaining periods.

09/08/2017 - 11:25pm It's the

difference U C.  Ugh am I tired of their slogan from years of them sponsoring Pickerington football games.  Show no mercy.

09/03/2017 - 5:44pm Spinning is explicitly mentioned - To quote

from the NCAA football Rules book, section 2, article 1, a. 2.:

After a score or any other play, the player in possession immediately must return the ball to an official or leave it near the dead-ball spot. This prohibits:
(a) Kicking, throwing, spinning or carrying (including off of the field) the ball any distance that requires an official to retrieve it.

  1. (b)  Spiking the ball to the ground [Exception: A forward pass to conserve time (Rule 7-3-2-f)].

  2. (c)  Throwing the ball high into the air.

  3.
