I thought it was you, but I was too lazy to check. I didn't want to give you false praise.
Almost everything from the 80's was bad. Even most of the rock. A lot of it has found its way into my heart, but I can still admit it's not good music.
Someone mentioned it in another thread, but I thought it was a good idea. You could place a high helmet sticker threshold on posting during games. It would lighten traffic and (hopefully) create better quality discussion. I'm not one of the people that like to post every thought during the game, but it is nice to converse with someone other than my wife during commercials.
I thought it was face mask/helmet too, but I watched the video on my phone. I didn't want to say that without watching on a bigger screen.
That was blatantly obvious from that angle, and should've been called. I wonder how often that happens and we don't get to see it.
I like the idea of commenting during games, but the way it is now doesn't work. A helmet sticker threshold could work. I used to genuinely enjoy game threads when the site was smaller. It's virtually impossible to have any discussion at this point. Honestly, I always liked basketball game threads better because of the smaller crowd.
I can't support any theory that claims Penn State is good.
The question, to me, is does Indiana deserve to be ranked? There were a lot of "surprising" results today. Our shortcomings alone wouldn't do it, but considering the landscape, there's a chance.
Be careful posting negative thoughts. Overzealous mods will just lock the thread.
[after Jalin makes a fumble]
Coach Meyer: What is wrong with you?! Why are you fumblin' my football?!
Jalin Marshall: My blockers were-
Coach Meyer: Your blockers! Your blockers don't have anything to do with you holdin' on the the ball! Did your blockers fumble the football, or did you fumble the football!
Jalin Marshall: I did sir.
Coach Meyer: Alright! how many feet are in a mile? How many feet are in a mile?
Jalin Marshall: I dunno.
Coach Meyer: 5,280 feet! You pick this ball up, you run every one of them! You're killing me Jalin! You're killing me!
Especially considering Urban has gone on record stating the QB run will always be a part of his offense. I don't understand the drastic change.
Braxton's block was awfully close to legal. I can't complain about the call, but I could see it sliding in most cases.
That's one of the biggest differences I see between Cardale and JT. More explosiveness with Cardale, but JT moves the chains more consistently.
I'm probably taking too much from it, but it doesn't look like Cardale has the respect of the team. I hate to think this way, but I think the locker room is divided.
I'd put this on Ed Warriner/Tim Beck, but Cardale certainly isn't having a positive impact. Sometimes the story is more than just stats.
I have a 4 year old Beagle named Scarlet. She's the quietest Beagle you've ever seen, but she's a born hunter. She's wrangled 2 rabbits, a squirrel, and a skunk in our fenced in yard. My wife (girlfriend at the time) insisted we get a dog when we bought our house. It didn't take much convincing to get me on board, but I insisted on a Beagle. She's the best dog I've ever been around, and I couldn't imagine not having her.
Too funny that you have a cat named Garage Cat. My parents had a cat by the same name a couple years back. The vet always called him GC.
The bright spot is that Iowa would be ranked next week with a win. As they're undefeated right now, I'm pulling for that one. A bonus in that game is that a Wisconsin loss hurts the Alabama strength of schedule.
It's just a matter of the other groups knowing the value of the line. As long as there's s team first identity, it won't be a problem.
I normally buy Snap-On for the necessities. I'm not opposed to any brands, but have noticed a lot more made in China crap being sold by Matco, Mac, and Cornwell. These tool companies make an effort to distinguish themselves as American companies, yet push foreign tools. Price shouldn't be an issue for anyone who takes their profession seriously, so I don't understand it. Some things in life should always be purchased by quality. Tools fall into that category. My motto is "I'm too poor to buy cheap tools". Someone told me that once, and it makes sense when you think about it. The cost of replacing inferior equipment is more than buying the right stuff the first time.
I think I have a open appointment 2 weeks from Monday, if you'd like that looked at
I've always said I can put up with a job I don't like if the money is right. I can also live on less money if I enjoy the job. When I hate the job, and the pay isn't good, that's a problem.
I genuinely enjoy 3 of my co-workers. That's about the extent of the niceties.
Part of what bothered me, which is something I never told them, is that I never felt truly appreciated. Their behavior in trying to convince me to come back leads me to believe they've realized how valuable I was. I haven't talked specifics with them yet, but a flexible start date shouldn't be a problem. Especially if that start date is earlier than expected. As long as moving my tools doesn't interfere with my anniversary weekend. I'd rather be jobless than hear about how I ruined the anniversary.
Certainly a lesson learned. Lots of them actually. Most importantly, my judgment isn't nearly as good as I thought.
Appreciate that. It seems to be the consensus to take the high road. I'd like to keep my reputation in tact, but hope to never change jobs within the field again. The next time I change jobs, it won't be to turn wrenches. I'm young now, but I know I don't want to be doing this when I'm 50-60 years old.
