  • SPORTS MOMENT: The final 3 games of 2014 season, seeing my girlfriend as emotionally tied to a sport and team she formerly didn't care for/had disdain for as I have for over a decade now. Priceless.

As much as I understand homerism... There is an obvious logic to things. Bosa camp compromised, Chargers didn't. Therefore asshole award goes to the stubborn bitch who won't move and is truly trying to screw someone entirely from the existing standards of their position. tOSU bias aside, fuck the Chargers.

That being said, don't they carry a reputation for being shit like this? Or am I mistaking that w/ other teams?

So in less than a year, commits, early enrolls, gets suspended, and is looking to transfer before ever playing a snap at the school. Who we looking at here? Player? Program? Coach? All the above? I normally would be heavily weighted to the player, but given the 3 other guys who made their decommits recently, it feels like there is a fire in the background and we're just seeing the smoke.

At this point, could Joey just essentially send them a "Fuck you" reply and focus on next year's draft? Like, I would be at a point of "I'm not playing for you guys, you in no way have any interest in taking care of me".

They basically gave him a pretty shit offer, his camp compromised half of it, they stood hard on a position of wanting full compromise. This is not people I want to have to play for, trust they are keeping a medical staff with my best interest in case of injury, nor really would I want to renegotiate with. I'd rather take a small loss and go to another program. I mean, its the fucking chargers, does anyone give a flying fuck about the chargers as an organization? ANYONE?

OH! I am seeing a pattern related now to my other post... That being said.

What person am I??? Like genuinely curious, I am guessing the fit in, but if there is something else I'd love to hear it. And maybe some understanding as to why/what makes me fit the model. I really enjoy this kind of stuff!

TBF: I would have asked the same question... Because honestly I don't live here. I miss a ton of topics, and unless something strikes my interest(mostly recruit and ttun on fire) I usually don't read much else. So when stuff crosses topics, I get left asking similar questions like Jumar did. Some of us are innocent people who don't know what truly is going on. :D

AH okay, thank you for my clue in. I really don't much care for Twitter anymore, hell I think my account is even locked from people trying to access it for some odd reason. lol.

Honestly, I wouldn't. I respect the winning Harbaugh did in the past. But I genuinely do not like HIM at all. He is exactly the kind of person that reminds me of a particular family member that I just fucking cannot stand on a day to day. If he was our coach, I'd be appreciative of the winning drive and all, but would be quite disappointed w/ a short term stint from a hot head asshole that is likely going to do damage to our program long term. Sure, he'll win more than previous guys, but he'll also burn out the people there.

And relationships in recruiting are huge. After 3-4 years under him, players are unlikely to have such a spirited view of him and when high profiles official and are around them, it'll be noticed. People like this exhaust people around them, especially younger people who don't have as much patience.

They totally have a right. And I totally have a right to fly a bird when, shocker, our doctors are looking out for the medical interest of the young man. I get it happens so questioning isn't out of line, just like saying "Told you so" isn't out of line when you told them so.

I get ya. I think the song sounds awful, but I think it was in there for a message more than quality? The plays were awesome, but the music didn't make me feel the hype all that much. I do appreciate the clarity of it though, that's a gem.

Most importantly for me if the point made a few times here, this is a focus on the young men to come and not the ones that have moved on to the next stage. That is cherry and well focused, props for that to BiO.

Manned up, nothing to see here. I mean I actually even get the point, "what team are you rooting for again?" But when you get out of line and make up for it and apologize, I'm moving on instantly. That's what having good character is about. You fuck up, you own it, and you go to the next chapter.

You can have mechanical device controlled by a person that could randomly choose something. Also, there is RNG which allows for random outcomes within computers, so just being a robot doesn't mean you get a 100% predictable device. For example on a basic level, you should try a slot machine. Purely driven on RNG, good luck predicting that(Tip, you can't. Source, I work on slot machines as a living.).

For those that don't know: RNG is Random Number Generator(Just covering bases here.)

My family was super stoked I went soccer as a kid over football. My grandfather played back in the day and he had seen the damage done even at HS level. Of course then I went into hockey, but honestly that wasn't too bad either. Only 1 concussion scare in like 8 years of active play.

Fighting in hockey is sort of this interesting thing... I played hockey, I love hockey... I am not really for fighting in it and I am not against it either. My girlfriend really doesn't enjoy that level of violence. She's come around to enjoying many sports for the competitive aspect, but when there is a fight in hockey, it really turns her away. So I get for some people the violence is absolutely counter selling point. As a player, I get why the fighting is sort of a thing here though. Refs don't catch everything, sometimes you just need to throw down to show a guy "that shit isn't acceptable" and stand up for your team. That being said, if you're of any talent, you are HURTING your team by removing yourself from the game for extended periods of time. I never fought because I was offensively skilled(I played offense and defense for the teams I played for and did pretty damn well on defense, just had a nose for scoring) and taking myself out of a game took a weapon out of the arsenal on my team. And honestly when people cheap shot me, I returned the favor myself. It goes both ways if you're smart enough. That all being said, I rarely ever see massively grotesque intent to severely injure in hockey. And I feel the self governing aspect plays a factor in this. But, I believe if you do fight, you get the game off for it. You really only should throw down like this, IMO, if it is worth you being gone for the entire game. And if its 3rd period, you get next game off as well since this is when fighting is generally more likely to occur.

Side note: I love the Avs. I remember the hate between Avs and Wings and those HUGE fights in the 90s/early 00s. Yes, they were fucking amazing. Yes, I was a young kid/teenager during that era. Now, if it happened, I'd still fire up because its like The Game and that hate for me, but if it were any other team I'd probably become disinterested and turn to something else. It is great for young male audience, otherwise its close to even money and anytime violence nears even money value for me, I'd opt for nonviolence. Just my 2 cents about the hockey thing.

IMO tOSU is a danger zone opponent. Raw talent with some refinement combined with an inability to know they are beaten or should be beaten. Those are the ones that fight on a different level.

Comment 01 Aug 2016

Recruiting and all is fantastic... But if they don't follow it up with on the field success, it will only go so far down the road. That national title is now showing a massive weight in value for us. TTUN needs to get some field wins to really keep up the potential pace Urban is setting. I think of it as a person who can sprint at a good speed but not having the endurance to go the whole way. Curious to see how it turns out in the end, and as much as I like winning, The Game is not nearly as exciting as it used to be for me. I'd like it to regain relevance, while favoring the good guy. ;)
