I cut the cable a few months ago and stream all my live TV through PlayStation Vue. It's worked out pretty well so far. Haven't missed a game but there is no feature to add time to a recording.  You just have to make sure you record the program after, which isn't ideal but it works.  Anyway, I forgot to record the program after so I missed the last five minutes of the PSU game. Morale of the story, cut the cable and get PlayStation Vue and you'll be spared bad things.

but problem with losing and having had 3 bad weeks offensively - is that we have major problems and very uncertain if that can be fixed in time.

It took exactly from the end of the MSU game late on a Saturday to kickoff the following week against TTUN to get it fixed.  I'd say we have plenty of time. I really think it's just mindset at this point.  Do the coaches just let the offense go out and make plays or do they try to making everything a chess match? Tressel was good at the chess match. Meyer is not. I trust he sees the problem that is glaringly obvious to everyone and will fix it.

Says the guy who just got a post with a whopping four comments  shut down after predicting we lose to UM by 14. Ok dude. We get it. You're being realistic. Everyone else is blowing smoke up their own arses. Thank you for keeping it real.

I seriously don't understand why any level-headed fan comes anywhere near this place for the live thread, much less after a loss.  I've been a part of this community about as long as anyone and I love it here, but many of us are purely intolerable when things don't go our way. Do yourself a favor and stay away during games and immediately after losses. You'll thank me and yourself later.

That place is so backward I'm surprised there isn't a Jefferson Davis statue in the middle of campus.

DJ, might I remind you of the 11W commenting policy: Don't Be a Jerk

There is no need to insult the South by insinuating that they are in any way like PSU fans. If I could, I would DV into oblivion.

I feel your pain, Saturday.  I lived in Wrigleyville for a bunch of years, maintained my loyalty to the Tribe throughout, but I did develop a soft spot for the Cubs.  Not nearly enough to root against the Indians, but I'd be solidly pulling for them otherwise.  The issue is that my wife grew up going to opening day games at Wrigley with her grandmother.  She is all Chicago so we potentially have a house divided for the next two weeks. 

Oh well.  It could be worse.  She could be a TTUN fan and then we would just hate each other for a few months out of the year.

Since we're on the topic of Nirvanna covers, I thought I'd leave this here:

It's a cover of In Bloom by some country guy named Sturgill Simpson (sorry, can't embed from iPad, or at least I haven't figured out how). If you are a fan of Nirvanna, i think you'll really enjoy this.  I am Ramzy's age and I happen to think Nirvanna is horribly overrated, but I can appreciate that they were pioneers in the genre, or at least the first of that genre to really get noticed.  Anyway, i think this version is fantastic.

I get that their three losses are to ranked teams but they don't even have any semblance of a quality win: Wofford, Memphis, and Georgia...the same Georgia that lost at home to Vandy. If I were Freeze, I'd be embarrassed at being ranked and ask the voters to stop.

Jesus, not much of a bed side manner on Ramzy, huh? I've been anxious about this game all week and now he comes at us with this? Welp, cue the nervous pre-game sh*ts two days earlier than usual.
