Plus it's organic. That's all the craze.

FTW.

09/03/2009 - 7:12pm I think 9-4 does it. I agree

I think 9-4 does it. I agree with FA that 5 losses won't do it, but 4 losses will. That means we either go 9-3 regular season (which would have us in the top 15 I bet, based on who we play) with a bowl loss, to a good team, or go 8-4 and beat an above average team in the bowl.

The fact that pollsters are high on a handful of our opponents (OSU, PSU, ND, Iowa, MSU) if we only lose 4 games in the regular season, we could be in the top 25 pre-bowls. A bowl win would solidify it.

Lately I've been pleasantly surprised by how much talent is present among MGoCommenters.

09/03/2009 - 6:44pm That's mean.

That's mean.

09/03/2009 - 5:41pm I have on request

If there is a Vlad the Impaler MGoShirt, I think the back should say "One in Emilien."

We've got some pretty awesome alumnuses.

Glad I'm not the only one.

I'm sure I know which one, but I can't help ya there. Road trip next season though!

09/01/2009 - 6:31pm There shouldn't be, the fires

There shouldn't be, the fires are farther up into the mountains and now that the temp is going down a bit (it was over 100 in most parts of LA country the last 4 days or so) they should start to subside.

09/01/2009 - 6:15pm Mariotti is a piece of shit

Mariotti is a piece of shit and Around the Horn is worthless. ESPN is worthless. I check them for standings and that's about it.

09/01/2009 - 5:34pm When I click the link at the

When I click the link at the top it just takes me to the oldhatcreative home page. Is anyone else getting this? It isn't taking me to a video.

09/01/2009 - 1:20pm Go to Inkster vs. EK. Devin

Go to Inkster vs. EK. Devin Gardner is more fun to watch highlights of than AW and it should be a better game too. Sounds like a no brainer to me.

08/31/2009 - 8:39pm I would love to see a Carson

I would love to see a Carson Butler vs. Michael Rosenberg death match. Seriously, I would pay hundreds.

08/31/2009 - 7:59pm I emailed them too. I told

I emailed them too. I told them to go fuck themselves.

Not really, but I wanted to. I did, however, tell them that I would be happy to write them a recommendation should they ever decide to apply for a job at TMZ. That part is true.

08/31/2009 - 7:53pm That Jon Chait article is

That Jon Chait article is really good. I'm glad the smart people are on our side.

08/31/2009 - 7:34pm They return one of the better

They return one of the better QB's we'll face all year, a decent running back, and nothing else. I think they lose 10 guys on defense, and they have one CB over 5'10". We should absolutely run them over.

08/31/2009 - 6:42pm I would expect the lowest

I would expect the lowest days to be weekends. I have a job, where I sit in front of a computer for anywhere between some and all of my day. On the weekends, I rarely open my computer. I may be an extreme example, but I think a lot of the people who read this are doing so while at work. But even when I was a student, I was on the computer more during the week than the weekends. Especially during the summer, people have other shit, mostly outdoor shit, to do.

08/31/2009 - 5:57pm I think those are just

I think those are just random, I really don't think we should read into that at all.

08/31/2009 - 5:42pm I don't think the kids who

I don't think the kids who were interviewed would be punished, they didn't know what they were doing. And Stokes is about where we thought he'd be.

08/31/2009 - 4:34pm If we're getting to the goal

If we're getting to the goal line that often that it's a problem, I'm OK with it. Or we'll just score from 10 yards out.

08/31/2009 - 4:14pm Nice.

Nice.

08/31/2009 - 3:50pm I'm not saying anyone should

I'm not saying anyone should do this (disclaimer) but it would be a really good idea for someone to go throw rocks through the windows at the free press. Also, never click on their links again.

08/31/2009 - 3:12pm He's a deathbacker, homey.

He's a deathbacker, homey.

08/28/2009 - 8:46pm Yes, although I've settled

Yes, although I've settled with a lady who is very bragable, I've experienced a handful who were doable but not hot by any measure.

Ugly girls are like mopeds: Fun to ride, just don't let you're friends find out you have one.

08/28/2009 - 8:07pm Wow, that's a pretty horse

Wow, that's a pretty horse you ride.

I think you misunderstand why people laugh at this. You keep saying that it's an excuse to make fun of ugly girls, which isn't the case. It's to laugh at ugly girls who are making fun of ugly girls. Pot and kettle, so to speak. To many people (BUT NOT TO YOU!!!!) that's funny.

08/28/2009 - 7:19pm Yeah I think that's pretty

Yeah I think that's pretty much a guarantee.

08/28/2009 - 5:13pm That's very big of you, but I

That's very big of you, but I don't see this as making fun of them for being ugly. I am making fun of them for doing something dumb. IMO, this is analogous to a youtube video of Miss America tripping and falling on her ass. It's the same way we make fun of the Sparty commenters when they say something like "your an idiot." It's funny because it's ironic.

08/28/2009 - 3:15pm I agree with you, but this

I agree with you, but this situation is different. If Brian posted a picture of three ugly girls wearing "Go PSU" shirts and we were all bashing them for being ugly, I think your point would stand. But for their shirts, they wouldn't be on this blog. We aren't bashing them for being ugly, we are bashing them for being ugly and bashing other girls for being ugly.

In summary: The PSU girls are bashing on looks alone. WE are bashing for hypocrisy. BIG difference.

08/28/2009 - 2:03pm I think LaLota will be a RVB

I think LaLota will be a RVB type end, Wilkins will be a BG type end, Paskorz will deathback and Kinard will play MIKE. None of those positions need more than one guy from this class since there are young guys there. We do, however, need a guy thrown in at MIKE.

08/28/2009 - 1:53pm Yeah SC only returns a couple

Yeah SC only returns a couple starters, but not only are those guys really really good, but the guys taking over for the departed defenders are studs as well. I've heard reports that their LB corps could be better(!) than last year's, and we all know who those guys were. Even though I doubt that to be the case, the fact that it's been thrown around means there shouldn't be much of a drop off, and SC's defense could be half as good as last year and still be one of the best in the country.

08/28/2009 - 1:43pm Here's what people need to

Here's what people need to realize: It's 2009 and everyone on the planet has a digital camera, and is probably carrying it with them, whether that's an actual camera or one of their BB/iPhone. If you want to do something "witty" and you pose for a picture, expect it to go around. This isn't an Erin Andrews scenario where they were photographed against their will, they willfully (I imagine) put on the t-shirts, and intended to have their picture taken. They can get pissed at the College of Engineering for posting it on the e-web, but once it hits the net, it's fair game.

If you don't want to get made fun of for being ugly, don't throw on a shirt making fun of ugly girls. Makes sense to me.

08/27/2009 - 9:55pm I'm not sure if the article

I'm not sure if the article mentions this or not, but SC has a scrimmage this Saturday, I would imagine a lot of what happens there will have an effect on who the starter is game one.

08/27/2009 - 9:50pm Right, and to REALLY convince

Right, and to REALLY convince people, he's playing Sheridan with the first team O and giving him an equal number of snaps. That RichRod is a tricky mother fucker.

08/27/2009 - 9:43pm True this.

True this.

08/27/2009 - 9:37pm However they do it, it's not

However they do it, it's not very accurate. I just went to Drew Dileo's page and I didn't see Wes Welker anywhere.

08/27/2009 - 9:34pm That I agree with. And don't

That I agree with. And don't get me wrong, I don't want to find out that Sheridan is our best bet. I'm just saying that if he is, it won't be like it was last year. He also has everyone else to rely on this year, which he didn't last year. And even if he is our best option, I don't think he will be after another month, unless he surprises people and plays well. All I'm trying to say is that Sheridan 2009 > Sheridan 2008, probably by a significant margin.

08/27/2009 - 9:29pm Agreed.

Agreed.

08/27/2009 - 9:24pm Conventional wisdom agrees

Conventional wisdom agrees with you, but all practice indications agree with me. He just seems better. Plus, he may have known the playbook better than Threet last year, but he was still only 8 months into the offense by the time the season started last year, and now he's been in it for 20, I think that will make a big difference.

08/27/2009 - 9:21pm I was under the same

I was under the same impression.

08/27/2009 - 9:17pm I was afraid of that. I

I was afraid of that. I hoped the fact that I was bashing ND would make up for it.

08/27/2009 - 9:11pm When he said "they went to a

When he said "they went to a bowl game and won, albeit a crappy one" I'm pretty sure he's referring to the Bowl, not the opponent. The Hawaii Bowl is not exactly something to write home about, but a bowl nonetheless. That said, beating Hawaii last year also shouldn't be something that The Notre Dame Fighting Irish should see as a particularly big deal.

08/27/2009 - 9:05pm I agree. Sheridan won't be a

I agree. Sheridan won't be a star, but I think he'll be noticeably better than last year. Also the OL will be much better. Also the WRs will be much better. Also the RBs will be much better. I'm not excited for Sheridan, but I'm not worried either.

08/27/2009 - 8:23pm No offense, Ted Kennedy could

No offense, Ted Kennedy could start at QB for USC against you guys and they'd still put up 40 points.

08/27/2009 - 8:20pm Said no to the donation?

Said no to the donation? Turning down alumni donations can be put on the top of the list of great ways to get yourself fired. I still think you're being way too idealistic about this. If an alumnus wants to donate 100K to pay for his name written in diamonds on the wall of Harbaugh's inner office, he can do it. No matter how poorly said AD is doing at balancing his budget. And the head football coach has no say in it.

08/27/2009 - 8:15pm I've also heard he's been

I've also heard he's been looking pretty mediocre (at best) so far. The local sports radio around here (Petros and Matt "Money" Smith) have gone to a number of practices and said he has looked very inconsistent and thrown a lot of picks. But since Corp was injured and Mustain has vanished into thin air, he hasn't had any competition. Hopefully he turns it around (or not if you don't like SC), but so far he's been looking pretty weak.

08/27/2009 - 8:09pm I dig. Took me a minute to

I dig. Took me a minute to figure out where everything is, but I like that I can click on the HS and see the other recruits from that high school, that's pretty easy and convenient. I like that I can see the kid's hometown on a map. Aesthetically pleasing as well. I give it 5 stars.
