That is BAD ASS. Good find, Jason. Looks like he has a GoPro attached to his cockpit glass.
Pardon the FJM-style response--
A lack of marquee games, rising ticket prices, bad weather, and a lack of modern facilities can all be part of this equation
None of these issues would be solved by Friday night B1G games -- unless Delany starts putting Sparty-*ichigan or Ohio State-Penn State on Friday at 8pm. But I don't see (and don't want to see) that happening.
They enhance it, especially for a younger generation of fans that are more interested in seeing something new than trying to maintain traditions that were established fifty or more years before they were born.
New solely for the sake of being new is just plain stupid. You know what else would be new and different?? Games played on Wednesdays at 2am. But you know what would be absolutely stupid?? Games played on Wednesdays at 2am. Playing on Saturday is not about "tradition", it's about what works. And Friday night just doesn't work.
Now get off my lawn!!
I see someone has been consulting their thesaurus this morning....
Other possible excuses include: They wuz too beet up from playin' a grueling S-E-C schedule, PAAAAWWWLLLL!!!! Those f*ckeyes only had to beat the Li'l Sisters of the Pour to get in the playoff!!
If you can dream --- can't you dream that she's straight .... and totally into you??
Having to share a meal with Buckeyeman (or is it Buck-I-man?) can do that to you. Who would want to relive such a tragic event??
I know you were just answering Baroclinicity's question, Jason, but we REALLY didn't need the embed. A link with a NSFL warning would have sufficed.
You're not wrong, Poison.
If the networks want Big Ten games on Friday nights — a slot traditionally reserved for high schools
And that right there is why I don't want Friday night games. The B1G gets ridiculed enough, I can't imagine the field day the S-E-C mouth-breathers would have with the B1G being relegated to high school levels. I've never looked at a team playing on [pick your day other than Saturday] and thought, "Gee, they must really be good if they're getting all this sweet [non-Saturday] exposure!" (Excluding bowls, obvs) Leave Friday -- and Thursday, and Wednesday, etc. -- to the MACs and the AACs of the world. I want my B1G on Saturday, dammit.
Cold-blooded .... I like it!
I would have gone with Chihuahua rather than a Bichon, but otherwise you're dead on.
Not sure if this is a bug or intentional, but quoted text is in a medium gray, which, against the slightly lighter gray of the background, can be challenging to read. As the text is already indented with a red line in the left margin, indicating it is a quote, is a different text color necessary? [EDIT: I'd prefer just black text in all cases. It is far easier to read, which after all is the goal, right?]

Well, if they don't like night games, ESPiN should grant their wish ... and give them noon ET games. Enjoy the 9am kickoff, boys!!
Looks like long post titles are being truncated: On the homepage, the post about Pantoni has its title truncated to "Mark Pantoni: The Mastermind Behind Ohio". Unless Brady Hoke has hacked 11W, it looks like there is a 2-line max set on post titles on the main page, and long titles may run 3-4 lines. (I'd post a screencap, but I can't figure out how to post a picture that doesn't have an url.)
Also, I used to have a spellcheck function in 11W comment boxes. I still get the red squiggly lines under words, but right-clicking no longer gives suggested spellings, only Paste (or Cut|Copy|Paste if a word is selected). Not sure if that is a function of 11W or my browser.
when they say "overrated" I hear, "you ain't all that, we're way better than you, look at all the praise you're getting in the media, you don't deserve that ranking- WE deserve that ranking, get off our court you coddled privileged losers!"
Wow, you really pack a lot of meaning into those 9 letters.... While I don't think it's the worst possible thing that could be chanted at a game, and while I do agree that it is intended as trash talk, I don't think it's very effective trash talk. When you think about it, to say your opponent is worse than the national perception is not helpful to your cause. Frankly, if the Buckeyes were to take out Arizona, I would want people thinking that Arizona is one of the best teams this season because that makes OSU's victory over them that much bigger.
I don't have a replacement chant -- chanting that your own team is "underrated" doesn't seem like it would have the same effect -- but I'm sure some imaginative Student Section could come up with something more original and effective than "overrated".
Not sure what this means, but when I posted a comment to the Tatum rollout post, the following message appeared at the top of the screen:
Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$vud_comment_widget in include() (line 134 of /home/elevenwa/public_html/sites/all/themes/elevenwarriors/templates/comment.tpl.php).
The post still worked, so maybe it's nothing....???? FWIW, I'm on Windows 7 Pro using Firefox 26.0.
I for one would be shocked if he gave away or otherwise disposed of absolutely everything he has PSU-related. I'm sure he'll give up a lot of apparel because he can't be seen in it as an OSU coach. But I'm sure he'll keep a few mementos for himself, which he'll be able to pull out and display once he retires from the game.
While you may be correct with the technicalities, playing Gibbons three days after the finding of responsibility/guilt was Hoke essentially saying, 'Since he's been convicted, let's play him before his sentence is imposed.' Maybe that isn't improper under the letter of the law (rules), I don't think it's what 'a Michigan Man' would do, and any other program would be pilloried for doing the same. Lord knows if OSU did that, Urban would be all over talk radio, ESPiN, etc. with pundits calling for his head.
All it took was a little of the ol' Bert magic. #karma
They are probably using "metro areas" (i.e., source of media signal). Though I don't know for sure, I imagine the network affiliates seen in Tuscaloosa are B'ham stations, the affiliates seen in Norman are OK City stations, etc.
I know you're joking, Kat, but it's a serious thing. The national media will have to change their narrative (all of a sudden, speed is bad). And such 'intellectual whiplash' can cause serious injury to one's mind, if not one's reputation.
That the lesson wasn't learned last autumn, would be my guess. Among other thoughts....
