Lurker since TatGate in 2010 and then finally signed up for an account a few years later. I post rarely, but read the site several times a day even when football and basketball are in the offseason.

There might be some reverse causality in these stats.  On days when giving it to Brax is working well against a defense, it'll push up the stats and usually result in more touches.  And on days when the defense is containing him well, we're less likely to call his number as many times.

It just means that 538 expects MSU to completely Spart themselves if they make it to the playoffs, whereas the models expect us to outperform them if we can find a way in.  Which syncs well with what I'd expect.

That would definitely make for an exciting finale.

Btw, sorry to everyone for forgetting to wear my lucky gameday shirt on Saturday.  It's all my fault.  I was adjusting back from roughly a half-day difference in time zones and days behind on sleep, so I didn't wake up until our last possession and forgot to put on my thus-far undefeated gameday shirt.  Speaking of which, what happens now to DJ's hitherto undefeated "get dumped then" hex?

Everyone has said something stupid on the internet at some point (well, I have anyway), but the important thing is to learn not to keep making the same mistakes.  The wisdom of 11W's commenting policy applies in most of life.

Anyone know of a comparable Browns site?  The Browns forums that I've seen are headshakingly unreadable because they don't abide by 11W's simple "don't be a jerk, keep perspective, and have fun" commenting policy.

But DC's snow is the best of both worlds! It's hardly ever that bad, yet even an internet rumor that someone saw a snowflake gets you the day off.

Ah, so NOT "call me Sue" then. (Johnny Cash songs apparently aren't the answer to all of life's questions)

That could be a fun twist. Did that event ever get scheduled? Sorry to hear about your grandma Hove, but glad to hear you've got good memories. Maybe she's up there having a whiskey with my grandma.

Agreed. A man is only as good as his word. The money is one of several reasons why I do my gig, but if a former coworker could make a decent argument that I lacked honor or integrity, then I'd be just a boy with a few extra bucks in his wallet pretending to be a man.

Do you ever get to play euchre any more here in the WMA? It's been so long that my memory has gotten fuzzy on the rules (except that cheating is always fair game--in euchre--unless you get caught.)

So it's NOT photoshopped?  I've seen this photo several times and just assumed it was a photoshopped joke that I wasn't understanding.

Survivors: No, not the crappy "reality" show - the S on the end makes all the difference.  Synopsis: "Set in the present day, the series focuses on a group of ordinary people who survive the aftermath of a devastating viral pandemic – referred to as "European flu" – which kills most of the world's population [...] The series sees the characters struggling against terrible dangers in a world with no society, no police and no law, led by the de facto matriarch of the group, Abby Grant."

Hell On Wheels: A series about "the Union Pacific Railroad and its surveyors, laborers, prostitutes, mercenaries, and others who lived, worked and died in the mobile encampment called "Hell on Wheels" that followed the railhead west across the Great Plains. The story focuses on Cullen Bohannon, a former Confederate soldier (Anson Mount) who, while working as foreman and chief engineer on the railroad, initially attempts to track down the Union soldiers who murdered his wife and young son during the American Civil War."  The sometimes tense partnership between former slaveholder Bohannon and an emancipated slave played by Common is just one of many interesting dynamics in this.

For comedy series: Better Off Ted, Arrested Development, and Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
