12/05/2013 - 5:35pm Yes, I plan on waiting a year or so

I have both PS3 and 360.  All my gamer friends gather on 360 to play.  A few of them have XB1 now and they can't join up on games.  WTF? Also, they don't like the new interface (UI) for chatting/party with friends.  The hot topic in the community is whether XB1 will revert back to the friendly and non-glitchy 360 UI.  I personally don't like the PS3 interface and controller, so those have to be major improvements for me.  Doing parties on PS3 is always more difficult and sometimes the audio didn't work and we had to use our cell phones to communicate during a game.

Here is a recent and useful article on the subject of XB1.  LINK

I'll probably by both models but I'll wait a year or so for more games and for the kinks to get ironed out.

10/14/2013 - 5:49pm The Euthanasia Bowl

Bill O'Brien is touting every game as a "bowl" game.  This game could only be the Euthanasia Bowl.  Both teams begging for the other to end their agony. In the end, PSU barely showed more life than Michigan and was spared.

04/03/2013 - 12:37pm Tom Crean will cry when we dismantle the 2-3 zone

and beat Syracuse.

10/22/2012 - 2:10pm ESPN OTL played "smash for cash" featuring GERG and the Beaver

last Friday.  I coughed up my pho'.  Has anyone ever seen this before?  Starting around 3:00 min. 



07/23/2012 - 3:13pm Does "suspended indefinitely" mean

he also misses August training camp? 

01/04/2012 - 3:13pm my first thought after the win

11/09/2011 - 11:47pm Will Delany step up and remove Paterno's name

from the championship trophy?

11/09/2011 - 11:46pm betcha $5 JoePa still shows up to coach the game Saturday


10/21/2011 - 12:41pm I've notice DB on the sideline during every game

usually 3 feet away from Hoke.  DB has been among the first to congratulate Hoke after the wins and he talks or listens in to Denard when he was out.  Not sure what to make of it.  Enthusiatic hands on boss like Mark Cuban or  an annoying interfering boss also like Mark Cuban.

10/12/2011 - 5:31pm Dinardo is too chatty and spends too much time trying to

make fun of the other "experts" or hosts. 

Overall when four of them sit together on the panel, seems like the View, but only with a little more testosterone. 

10/11/2011 - 4:08pm does the book come with a pop-out

dong punch?

[Nevertheless, I will still order it via the amazon link. Thanks for the hard work Bacon.]

10/05/2011 - 11:35pm Predictions?

Smith will be out when osu loses the case and starts releasing the emails.

10/04/2011 - 2:00am Is Smith trying to be the first AD to

get a show cause penalty?

09/20/2011 - 3:08pm Was RR going to be fired by DB

regardless of the Miss State bowl outcome? 

Did Bacon talk to DB before or after the "end of the year" interview with RR?

I recall DB's exit interview with RR was 4+ hours.  What did they talk about.  A decision was not made till the next day, was it b/c RR pleaded for more time/consideration or b/c DB wanted to think more about the decision to fire RR. 

DB later stated that he looked at the whole season/tenure and seemed to emphasize the lack of defense and the cellar dwelling stats.  RR stated that he wish he knew earlier that he was going to be fired before the bowl so he and his staff could look for other jobs.  Seems like the decision to fire was made before the bowl game. 

So, did he talk to DB about the firing/decision process? What was RR's take on the firing and what happened behind the scenes last 2 weeks of RR at UM.

09/19/2011 - 4:47pm 1st downs and some predictable Denard runs

are my issue.  When the O gets stuffed in a couple of 3 and outs or is not productive in the 1st half, Borges comes out with back to back to back Denard designed runs in the 3rd.  Happened in ND game and the Western game.  It happened a little earlier in the Eastern game.  Eventually, Denard will get a long run as he did in Eastern, but will that work in B1G play?  We will see I suppose.

09/13/2011 - 4:11pm someone please tell Denard

to wash in cold water and hang dry

09/07/2011 - 5:26pm I'm trying to understand that line up with Beyer

Is it an orchestrated teaching moment for the freshman or others inexperienced?

Heat/weather issues?

Way to instill accountability for all players on the depth chart?

Saving the beef for ND?

Previous year, the defense played poorly with same guys but they were kept in the game.  Is it better to rotate this much as a way to find a playmaker like Herron?  Two defensive TD guarantees him some more playing time this week, doesn't it?

Size alone, BWC and Ash would at least plug up more of the holes, I would hope. 

09/07/2011 - 3:01pm oh this is gonna be great, it may go all the way to

the Supreme Court.

09/07/2011 - 3:00pm I can hear the Huskers' fans rejoicing their

early departure from all this drama.

09/04/2011 - 11:26pm to make it worse, looks like Carder gets

teabagged after the hit.

08/31/2011 - 4:52pm I thought the SEC already

said they were not interested. Wasn't that a hint?…

aTm may have egg on its face again. To me, this is more of an FU to Texas and a dare to the B12 to see if they will restructure the division of money.

08/31/2011 - 4:38pm better than Josh Groban

and holding hands, right?

08/10/2011 - 2:17pm Prior?

Yes, always trust an article states "prior" is ineligible. Because Dallas and a few other teams are interested, I think he will be added.  Jerry Jones will call up Goodell and make it happen.


08/02/2011 - 2:08pm went to UM, grew up in Texas, as a child I watched ND fb every

Saturday with my dad, so my 2nd fav team is Penn State girls volleyball team.


07/08/2011 - 3:19pm srsly? ncaa feel free to drop a load on them


06/30/2011 - 11:39pm Welcome?


06/20/2011 - 5:44pm couldn't find any muppets giffs, congrats


06/10/2011 - 11:28am It could be big

The school has the authority/duty to ask all those players to produce their bank acct statements to determine whether suspicious deposits were made during the relevant times. If they find something they have to self-report to the ncaa.

(very telling)

05/26/2011 - 9:50am this is what happens when you take

away the Japanese army or their ability to invade other countries.  Do the winners get to eat the losers to gain their power?

05/16/2011 - 4:47pm #4 is very true

During the pregnancy there can be a couple of melt downs too.  After baby is here and causing lack of sleep, be prepared for a tongue-lashing. Just listen and then go buy a $100+ spa package for her.  I think my wife has about $500+ spa gift cards stored up. 

05/16/2011 - 4:39pm we just had our 2nd

child 2 months ago.  I am glad my wife has a couple of sisters to help out b/c I am effin' tired.

I recommend this


and this type of swing , a plug-in so you don't go through batteries

and most importantly, some ear plugs. 

04/19/2011 - 2:21pm what if RR responds or releases a statement?

He would be petty, defensive, finger pointing, etc.  But he really doesn't get the chance to say or do anything.  He is shamed (which is partly his fault for various reasons, poor performance, ncaa violations and so on) and so far he is being gentlemanly or nice and keeping his mouth shut.  But will he get provoked by Braylon or others and speak up?  And would it be welcomed or justified given the alum and former players' ongoing criticism.  I doubt it.

I get what Brian is saying or at least like many others interpret it my own way.  Braylon either has some booze in his mouth or his foot and when anyone is listening, he is on tour to restore the Michigan brand as he sees or wants it.  Braylon still wears his jersey and thinks he is #1.  He does not and will not care what anyone thinks as displayed at his pro stops.  So, he drops his verbal grenades and leaves town after a stop at Mott's.

03/24/2011 - 4:36pm wondering if adidas makes more money/sales from ND or UM


03/21/2011 - 12:58am at least he didn't call a timeout
