how do we know this took the staff off guard?  not doubting you, I just hadn't seen any reports to that effect.

Totally agree.  And the weak performance against NW came after Urban promised an "angry" team in the wake of the PSU loss.  As I recall, the O's performance against NW was hardly "angry," maybe "mildly peeved" at best...

not sure if i can embed this, but it sure looks like he did in this video at 32 seconds.  and then the refs sure were pointing at peepers as he was walking...

i live in DC and have tickets but who I go with depends on kickoff time - if noon, taking my young son; if 3:30, taking a buddy.  would be nice to plan ahead!

we need to know more about the context and circumstances surrounding each person's out of court statement.  technically speaking, McQueary's statement could be admissible as evidence if each of the original speaker's statements (Schiano and Bradley) were found to fall into one of the exceptions to the general rule against admitting hearsay as evidence.    

Comment 12 Jul 2016

this is why there is a general rule that hearsay (or in this case, double hearsay) is not admitted as evidence of the truth of the matter asserted: the original speaker(s) are not present and able to be cross-examined about their original statements.

I know haters are gonna hate, but this "Urban couldn't handle the SEC" meme really bugs the hell out of me.  Plus, it's completely unfounded given that Urban kicked the SEC's butt in numerous years and won two friggin national titles at Florida.  Had Urban "quit" the SEC having never won an SEC title or after having a losing record, then the meme might pass the laugh test.

About 15 years ago, I was doing a backpacking trip through Southeast Asia as a post law school graduation trip.  While in Nha Trang, Vietnam, I was in a travel agency/tour guide office trying to change one of my flights, and I had to send a fax to the airline.

So I was trying to explain everything to the woman behind the counter at the travel agency, but she knew very little English.  Finally after several tries, she says, "ohhhhh, you want to fahk?? you want to fahk?!"  yeah, she was trying to say "you want to fax" but it kept coming out as "you want to f#@k?"   the expression on my face eventually helped her and her co-workers understand the miscommunication, and one of her colleagues walked over to her and whispered something in her ear.  she turned bright red and then everyone standing within earshot burst out laughing.  

i was bummed because i had thought i was going to get lucky that night...

I neglected to mention that i too hate the usually lame atmosphere at the Shoe.  since 1999, i've flown or driven from NYC or DC to columbus for an average of 1 or 2 games per year.  over the last five or six years i am told at least once a game to sit down and be quiet (my seats are usually mediocre ones in C deck).  it kills me that people not only don't stand and don't cheer, but that when others do, they ask them to sit down and be quiet.  as others here have posted - those people should give up their tickets to people who will contribute something to game-day atmosphere, and the lamos should just watch at home...
