The whole canned music thing is one of the things that keeps me away from live sporting events. I don't much see the point in snippets of noise, particularly when the home team is trying to call plays.

It does seem like JTIVs arm is "getting better." Whether that just be from timing or from practice and how much stronger seems to be debatable but the guy sure as heck seems to be "getting it." I'm not versed enough to know if there are any sorts of throws we haven't seen him make. I wonder, if those are in fact "missing," if it is because he doesn't do them well or if they are just not using them.

I've always assumed that the only reason he remained employed is his salary is just being allowed to live on the GameDay Bus.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

Yep, I like that there don't seem to be signs of complaceny. The first half would qualify but it seems they've really got their heads in the right place. One cool thing about this is they can genuinely push aside playoff and the CCG aside with this being The Game. Doesn't need to be lip service this week like it probably was with the Hoosiers. All kinds of stuff on the line the playoff et al aside.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Since they went to divisions I've thought the league should have a three day "trophy weekend" showcase to end the season starting on Thanksgiving and ending with The Game. Doesn't work quite as well with Maryland and Rutgers but

Thanksgiving: Purdue/Indiana and Illinois/NW

Friday:  Wiscy/Minny and Iowa/Nebraska or Minny/Iowa and Wiscy/Neb.

Saturday: Maryland/Rutgers (or change with a Thursday/Friday) MSU/PSU and The Game

We're pretty much getting all that as the last day of the season but it seems like it could be neat to split it up.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

I don't think you'd get anybody to sign on board for a three week round robin to end the season between OSU/MSU/scUM/PSU.

OSU/MSU and scUM/PSU

OSU/PSU and scUM/MSU

MSU/PSU and OSU/scUM

I don't think anyone ever would come out of that unscathed.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

This is the thing that makes me unimpressed with the early season conference games in the SEC. It basically gives them an extra bye week late in the year while posting a blowout win in November. They get the conference match-up "against a ranked opponent" while their rankings are still inflated from not having played yet.

I agree with the general tenor of the thread particularly OSUBias and Ohio1St81. I don't believe but I still have my own habits with regards to the season. Makes me feel better and is fun. It helps me keep perspective by being a good reminder that it is all out of my hands. You can't control things that are not yours to control and have to "let it go." This I think is the real difficulty that gets summed up in a sort of corollary to the "Serenity Prayer," the wisdom to know the difference. It is just trying to control the things you can because there is so much you can't.

Just from a personal faves standpoint for "consoles."

Batman: Arkham City

The Last of Us

Tomb Raider (original)

Assassin's Creed II (I've enjoyed the series but this is the best in my opinion with Black Flag second)

Tron: Deadly Discs

Panzer General

Lots of others but that stuff would probably be my stuck on an island list.

For multiplayer I've spent a bit of time with Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 and 4.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

I love "The Last of Us." That was exactly what I want from a single player campaign. Terrific game.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

How about I concede your point? Hopefully I'm just being gloomy and this is just that nightmare from the nineties I can't seem to vanquish again rearing its ugly, ugly, ugly head.
