Some people simply do not watch enough Rutgers basketball.

No, the team isn't perfect. But they're good, they work and they're easy to root for.  The coaches know what they're doing.  The team should continue to improve.  Bring on March!

01/23/2019 - 11:30am Every now and again you come…

Every now and again you come across a thread title that is such a head scratcher that you click on it even though you have zero expectations that it will be worthwhile to do so.  Nice work OP.

Also:  I will not believe in the catapult until there is an informercial on ESPN starring the basketball equivalent of Fred McGriff.

01/21/2019 - 7:29pm The guy I always think of…

The guy I always think of when I hear undersized but endless motor is JaeSean Tate.  Not saying that Scooby is anything like Tate, but he's kinda the standard for me and a player you want on your team.

A bit of envy for those who have tomorrow off.

No grilling today but I have a pot of pintos with a ton of bacon simmering away and will throw together some cornbread later.  May have to indulge in a couple ice cold Miller Lites.

Don't really care who wins the games, but will enjoy laughing at my friends who are insufferable fans of the losing teams.

01/18/2019 - 11:03am A signing of the three stars…

A signing of the three stars?  That wouldn't go over too well I'm afraid.

01/16/2019 - 4:47pm Now this is a great OT…

Now this is a great OT thread. 

Homemade is a million times better than jar so homemade whenever possible.  Even if you don't have a lot of drippings/juice to work with, whatever you have plus butter, stock and thickener is going to be better than whatever Heinz concocted.

01/13/2019 - 10:49am I don't know about you guys…

I don't know about you guys but I'm really, really glad that Dererk Pardon is not in fact a 7'3" 250 lb sophomore.

01/11/2019 - 6:47pm I do believe that tonight's…

I do believe that tonight's alcohol consumption will be drinks of joy.  LOL YODER.

01/10/2019 - 3:49pm Going to announce that he's…

Going to announce that he's taking the team on a spring semester trip ... to the Big John Steak and Onion on Saginaw Hwy.

01/10/2019 - 3:10pm If I ever become an…

If I ever become an offensive coordinator I'm going to insist on running Zone Left as the first play of every game in tribute to the OG.

(spoiler:  I'm never going to become an offensive coordinator, unless you count playing Madden)

01/10/2019 - 2:15pm Seems pretty obvious now…

Seems pretty obvious now that he was giving himself advice with that tweet, not subtweeting Fields.

01/10/2019 - 2:10pm The answer is clearly…

The answer is clearly Mattison, because everything prior to January 1, 2019 has been wiped from the memory banks.  It's like 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 .... 2008 never occurred.

01/08/2019 - 12:21pm I bought a new car in 2018,…

I bought a new car in 2018, but not one that was on the list or rates as cool in any way, shape or form.  That's right, I bought a minivan.  Chrysler Pacifica.  About 15k miles so far and I've been super happy with it.  Comfortable, tons of room, enough gadgets on the midlevel trim without the price tag of the max-gadget limited.  Okay, I would like to have heated seats.  Decent gas mileage.  Great for road trips and vacations.  

01/05/2019 - 8:53pm Even more impressive when…

Even more impressive when you take into account the fact that UConn isn't a P5 school.

01/04/2019 - 8:56pm I'm kinda puzzled by this…

I'm kinda puzzled by this tbh.  Seems like most of the stuff I've seen on Twitter this week about Barnett was very positive.  Oh well, he's a Sparty so whatever.

Glad to see a lot of positive reporting on Mazi Smith!

01/04/2019 - 7:13pm Dr. Pepper.  Will be…

Dr. Pepper.  Will be considering adding whiskey to it at some point.

01/04/2019 - 9:54am TGIF FUDDRUCKERS

TGIF FUDDRUCKERS

Solid basketball win last night plus wrasslin'

Urban Meyer is still retired

Reinforcements for the football team arriving imminently (and later too)

Life is good (unless you're Maizen or Eeyore)

12/28/2018 - 9:27pm If I read things right,…

If I read things right, looks like Beilein was there a couple weeks ago as well.   Will be interesting to see if Scooby gets an offer.

12/28/2018 - 3:43pm Uh, I don't think Dan Mullen…

Uh, I don't think Dan Mullen or his OL coach had an Ole Miss tenure.

(Yes, that means I read the whole thing.  I regret nothing and am undecided as to whether to eat at Arby's.)

12/25/2018 - 9:21pm Hey, at least he'll be…

Hey, at least he'll be closer to Transylvania. 

 

Though I'm not sure if they'd let a criminal sex vampire in the country.

12/18/2018 - 2:34pm We saw a few plays this…

We saw a few plays this season where both Khaleke Hudson and Jordan Glasgow were on the field ... maybe this is a sign that Don Brown plans to feature more ZOMG DOUBLE VIPER defenses

Or maybe not and we're just signing high ceiling football players.

12/18/2018 - 10:02am If Urban Meyer's health…

If Urban Meyer's health permits maybe he can take over.  Just imagine what Man U could do with a spread-to-run offense and five star talent all over the pitch.

12/17/2018 - 4:31pm I hate the fact that I…

I hate the fact that I clicked on this thread.

 

Can we please get a feature that lets us know who started it or, better yet, the ability to ignore selected users? 

12/17/2018 - 12:16am This nugget smells like OG…

This nugget smells like OG Kush

12/14/2018 - 11:58am I wonder if Hellams will end…

I wonder if Hellams will end up elsewhere, like, say, Maryland.  The crootin sites probably would indicate if Locksley was his recruiter at Alabama but I'm far too lazy to look.

12/13/2018 - 3:22pm My B.S. detector usually…

My B.S. detector usually goes off when someone claims to issue a "completely independent" report, but I'm going to hope that it's truly the case here.  Looking forward to reading it.

12/12/2018 - 5:11pm I can only imagine the hours…

I can only imagine the hours X has put in trying to fix his shot.  It's a damned shame that someone who works as hard as he does has a significant flaw in his game.  Still glad to have him and a couple of missed threes or FTs per game is worth what he brings to the table.

Just going to assume that it will be tOSU.  That way if for some reason it's Michigan it will be a pleasant surprise.  EZ game.

12/11/2018 - 2:16pm Per me:  LOL

Per me:  LOL

I enjoy Sam and he's got a job to do.  Sure there is a chance until the ink is on paper, but it sure seems like the longest of long shots.

That's a great photo of Iggy with all the meme potential in the word.  Kudos to Patrick Barron.

12/06/2018 - 5:32pm I have no idea if this is…

I have no idea if this is accurate since I have little interest in reading what recruiting analysts have to say, but even if it is, that's OK with me.  Nothing wrong with having athletic guards that can move. 

12/06/2018 - 3:22pm I really have no idea how…

I really have no idea how you rate or rank a 1 year position coach with regard to recruiting.  If someone like McElwain doesn't have any kind of previous relationship with the kids he's recruiting, if Michigan isn't recruiting kids that he was recruiting at Florida, if he was tasked to guys who were longshots, does that mean he's a bad recruiter or that he did a bad job if he doesn't get commits?  Not easy for him to sell the idea that he's going to be around for a while, either, since everyone would have expected him to leave for a head coaching or coordinator job.

12/04/2018 - 11:08pm Dunno about you guys (and…

Dunno about you guys (and gals) but I'm feeling pretty POSITIVE about starting 2-0 in the B1G.

11/29/2018 - 5:17pm Johns does appear to be the…

Johns does appear to be the logical candidate if he can process everything that's being thrown at him.  Asking a lot for him to be able to play both the 4 and small ball 5 -- just look at Livers last year.  I think he works hard and is available but isn't needed much.  Mostly garbage time minutes.

DeJulius hasn't played much but to my eyes he definitely doesn't look ready.  I'm guessing he gets garbage time when possible but nothing of consequence.

Castleton needs muscle.  Nunez needs time.  Neither sees any relevant time.

By the way, tomorrow's winning Mega Millions numbers are 16, 23, 37, 44. 46 and money ball 12.

11/29/2018 - 12:17am Here for the bang and the…

Here for the bang and the inevitable Eli Brooks appreciation thread!  Big win!

11/28/2018 - 4:12pm For a minute there I thought…

For a minute there I thought this was going to be a thread about Spartan Dawgs and we already handled our business with them for this year.

11/27/2018 - 7:28pm I enjoyed how ESPN conjured…

I enjoyed how ESPN conjured up some fantastic chaos theory where supposedly we had a 33% chance of getting in.  Reality is zero percent, even if everyone loses.

My interest in the rankings is now limited to seeing whether it's the Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl or other bowl.

11/27/2018 - 1:13pm Chronic crappy website…

Chronic crappy website disorder.  I'm told that it's a thing, but that it's treatable.

11/26/2018 - 7:50pm This isn't really a…

This isn't really a grievance per se but you know those ads during the podcast for HuEl, where they help people overcome Chronic Crappy Website Disorder?

 

Yeah.  I really hate sites that suffer from Chronic Crappy Website Disorder.

I would prefer to see our enemies driven before us and to hear the lamentations of their women.

11/19/2018 - 3:13pm I have no idea if Meyer will…

I have no idea if Meyer will resign or not but he sure looked like he could use a Prilosec or fifty last weekend.

11/19/2018 - 3:10pm That poor strawman, he sure…

That poor strawman, he sure got TOLD.

Welcome young fella

11/19/2018 - 12:15pm While I don't disagree with…

While I don't disagree with the general sentiment, I don't think that randomly mixing crews frequently is optimal.  The fact of the matter is that being an official is hard.  Each member of the crew has certain responsibilities and they have to be able to work together.  The referee as crew chief has to be able to know the strengths and weaknesses of each.

11/18/2018 - 12:40pm Giles Jackson and our newest…

Giles Jackson and our newest commit (whose name I need to learn how to spell) both with tweets that one is coming.  Come on down young fellas.

11/17/2018 - 9:55am Foolproof, 100% accurate way…

Foolproof, 100% accurate way to tell if Shea is leaving:

Check the official roster on mgoblue.com.  If Shea is listed at a height under 6'3" he is staying, because he's not tall enough for the NFL and needs another year of steak and whole milk.  If it says he's 6'3" or taller it means he's all growed up and ready for the NFL draft.

Refresh early and often for his current status.

11/14/2018 - 8:47pm The entire coaching staff…

The entire coaching staff appears to be of the highest Gandalf-type quality.

11/10/2018 - 7:36pm Is this game even on BTN+?

Is this game even on BTN+?

Just re-read the section on the linebackers a few times.

 

Then ask yourself "how is it POSSIBLE to put up those numbers?!?"

 

BIG TEN.

I'm in favor of all of that, plus I'd like to take out Montezuma too since I had Taco Bell and several Coronas tonight.
