03/26/2018 - 11:41am When Wagner picked up his fourth foul, one of them

When Wagner picked up his fourth foul, one of them said "The problem Michigan has now is that their bigs they have in now, Teske and Robinson aren't very good defenders."

Which is ridiculous. It may not have been the best matchup for Robinson on defense, but FSU was going small so it wasn't terrible, and still he's at worst an adequate defender. Teske is clearly a superior defender to Wagner.

Discord could be a good tool for that. MGoArchive could create a text channel that only he can post in for Torrent links. Then if you know you're going to miss a game, you can open Discord up to that channel ahead of time so that you don't see any spoilers in the main channel, and download the torrent once he posts it.

There was a Chiefs' game earlier this season where something similar happened. They were playing the Redskins and the Chiefs scored a defensive touchdown on a lateral play on the last play of the game. The score not only caused them to cover the spread, but also put the game total over the O/U.

10/06/2017 - 3:17pm Agreed

If O'Korn has the stats Brian put in his prediction, we'll win by more than 11 for sure.

It was bad enough when they showed it near the beginning of the game. But then at halftime when they showed it again and had his speech going over Purdue highlights, but cut back just in time for the chair... Blech.

09/25/2017 - 10:18pm Yes, but you won't be watching it on Reddit.

Yes, but you won't be watching it on Reddit. People will post comments with links to streams on there. I'd recommend trying it out next weekend on the bye week.

The best streams are usually acestrams which need an app called ace player.

To my knowledge, all Amazon original programming drops all at once, but episode by episode. Both seasons of All or Nothing definitely did.

De'Veon Smith is on the Dolphins practice squad.

09/03/2017 - 9:28am Matt Wile

It looks like Matt Wile tentatively made the Cardinals. He's currently on the 53 man squad, but there has been some talk about them bringing someone else in.

08/13/2017 - 9:42pm PSU

PSU is overrated, and I think they'll finish the season worse than last season, but I'm still worried about that game because of the whole white out thing, and because they have a bye the week before.

08/11/2017 - 6:29pm As a Dolphins fan

As a Dolphins fan, it's been a tough week. Starting QB reinjures his knee and is out for the year, starting guard tears his bicep and will be out for half the season, and now starting MLB tears his ACL in punt coverage on literally his first play. We didn't even get to see him take a snap on defense.

03/29/2017 - 7:30am App vs Mobile Site

I think it is smart to focus on the site overhaul before the apps. If the site overhaul is done well, it will eliminate the need to have an app for anyone who is casually browsing or reading but not participating in the comments very much.

A responsive site that displays well on mobile browsers would be just as good as an app for all but the biggest power users who spend so much time commenting on here. Obviously, those users are important, and losing one power user probably hurts revenue more than losing one casual browser, but I'm sure power users make up a small percentage of the user base.

03/20/2017 - 9:52pm USC/BAYLOR

https://twitter.com/Jtripper0925/status/843637899170140161

How about this call from the USC/Baylor game last night? They called it out of bounds off of Baylor, USC ball.

This is the most inexplicably bad call that I saw this weekend. It wasn't such an obvious turning point as the Gonzaga goaltending no-call, but that Baylor player is their best player and he was in foul trouble (I'm pretty sure he had four at this point, he ended up fouling out with a few minutes left in the game).

03/19/2017 - 7:53pm Torrent

Someone posted a gorgeous 11 GB torrent of the Oklahoma State game within 24 hours of end of the game. I'd imagine something similar will be posted soon for this game.

It says in the article that his teammates were intentionally fouling to lengthen the game and give him more scoring opportunities.

Kind of lame.

Some people say that the moon landing was fake. I go a step further, I think the moon is fake. Look into it, there's a lot of shocking stuff out there about it.

01/31/2017 - 7:33pm I'm sure it will still crash, but all of those

I'm sure it will still crash, but all of those users from the mobile app that were viewing the site without ads (and therefore not generating revenue) will now be viewing the actual site (and generating revenue). If some of them don't come at all, that allows more revenue generating viewers to view the site before it crashes.

01/31/2017 - 5:54pm Personally, I wouldn't mind that, if it means the

Personally, I wouldn't mind that, if it means the site doesn't crash every time there is a commitment.

Combined with the fact that Brian wasn't seeing a dime from those views, if half of them never view the site again, and the other half view it on a revenue generating platform, it would be a net positive for him.

He's trying to keep the site from crashing. The traffic coming from the unofficial app is weighing on the server as much as page views on the site, but he's not getting any ad revenue from it. It makes sense. Hard to fault him for it.

01/31/2017 - 5:44pm Not Really

He doesn't make anything from it. He makes money from ads, and if you view the site on the unofficial app, you don't interact with any ads. In fact it hurts him, because it overloads the server without giving any money.

Ideally, the site would be updated to a modern, responsive design, which would eliminate the need for an app, and send the ad revenue straight to Brian.

Ah, yeah I see what you mean. I'm a casual Southampton fan, and most people I've read seem to think Pellegrini is the guy. I would prefer Pellegrini over Klinsmann, though I have a higher opinion of his performance as the USMNT, than a lot of people.

06/23/2016 - 10:20am Southampton

Ronald Koeman left Southampton for Everton earlier this off season. This would be Southampton filling a vacancy, not replacing their coach.

11/08/2015 - 6:38pm UCLA has two losses and controls it's own destiny

UCLA has two losses and controls it's own destiny to win the PAC 12. I believe if Stanford beats ND, and UCLA wins the PAC 12, we'd have a decent shot for the playoffs.

I'm just hoping for a B1G championship, if we make the playoffs that will just be icing on the cake

11/08/2015 - 9:26am Sort of

That was the double play action, throw to Houma down the right sideline, where the entire Rutgers defence bit on the Peppers fake to the left.

As a Dolphins' fan, I was pretty excited when I read this article, this morning:

01/11/2013 - 12:25am Actually GRIII was born on

Actually GRIII was born on January 8, 1994. So he would've already been born when that game happened. 

Interesting fact that I hadn't heard before he was born three months premature and only weighed 3lbs 4ozs. He had to spend the next two months in an incubator with a mini basketball, according to wikipedia.

I vote for this and then Oklahoma State home and home in 2016-2017. I would really like to see us play West Virginia at soom point in the near future too.

Childish Gambino would be at the top of my to-see list if I was going.

Oh, you mean 30 years before I was born? Wow, things do change fast... lol

But seriously, I agree with your point, probably could've picked a better example though.

03/05/2012 - 10:44pm You say that about being

You say that about being annoyed about allowing a short team score on a corner kick, but height isn't everything. IIRC, Japan had multiple corner kick (or possibly headers off of free kicks that were basically corners) goals in the Women's World Cup. Some teams are just really good at moving and getting people open for headers.

02/22/2012 - 1:54pm So, assuming we win out, OSU

So, assuming we win out, OSU wins out, and MSU  and Wisconson win out except against OSU, there would be a three way tie between UM, OSU, and MSU. 

Tie-breaker 1 does nothing, because all split our regular season series. Tie-breaker 2 comes into affect, and Wisconson is the first team that we compare against. OSU and MSU would each be 2-0 against Wisconson, and we would be 1-0. Therefore, we would get the third seed.

It's tough to project the standings past fourth, so I'm not sure who would end up winning the tie-breaker between MSU and OSU.

Does this seem correct?

There are an infinite number of explanations as to why you couldn't see it/it didn't happen before. As to his arms shaking, he probably has them on his lap, and shaking his leg is making them shake. Really not concerned at all.

Okay, after seeing that, I went out and got multiple subscriptions to every newspaper that I could find. We all have to do our part.

Actually all of his assistant positions have been defensive positions. DC at Bowling Green, CB coach at OSU, and DC at Ok State.

11/14/2011 - 11:09am I think that we would get

I think that we would get picked above Stanford, there where empty seats at the Stanford-Oregon game and that was a top-10 game at home for Stanford.

Also, even if Houston loses, both TCU and Southern Miss are close to the cutoff to make the BCS, so I think we have to assume that one of UH/TCU/USM makes the BCS. Especially since USM winning out means that they would be boosted by beating UH.

So, here's how I see it, NCG: SEC vs Oklahoma State, Rose: B1G vs Oregon, Sugar: SEC vs UH/TCU/USM, Fiesta: Oklahoma vs Nebraska/Michigan, Orange: ACC vs Big East
