To me this list signifies the 10 games that contributed most to creating the team on the field when the clock hit 00:00 in Arlington. If I had a list that was more influenced by the perception of our program by pundits, other schools, recruits, etc. then I would definitely include the Clemson game.

I would leave Clemson out because we didn't learn anything new from it. It was basically the Sparty game again only with Braxton's torn labrum and more injuries to the LBs and DBs. But I'm in the same boat with you on moving the losses higher. The big wins were more cathartic but does that automatically make them more important?

I would drop 2013 Michigan to #10 and move 2012 Wisconsin to #8. We were very lucky to get out of there with a win and then we went on to validate fucking Taylor Lewan with the Sparty and Clemson losses. The MSU loss taught us something we should have learned the week before when we were busy thinking about the BCS title game. 

The 2012 Wisconsin game should move up because our clutch defense to close out the game contributed to our dominating second half against Michigan the next week. It also featured, in my opinion, Ryan Shazier's most memorable play as a Buckeye.

The Wire was great because there was no fairy tale, no joke, no killing everybody off...it just simply moved on.

I loved the 30 Rock finale, especially Liz's last scenes with Tracy and Jack. Parks and Rec was pretty good as well.

My order is a regular 3-way and a chili-cheese sandwich (no hot dog, extra chili) with mustard, no onion.

Question for ya BamaMike: Do y'all think Phyllis from Mulga is real? I've seen some people on the interwebz who think she's just a gimmick. Personally, I think don't think she's genuine. Any intel from your end?

Comment 22 May 2015

Yeah, really. Every time they show the other championship contenders I think to myself, "who do they have at quarterback?" Coulda said the same thing about us several times last year.

Comment 22 May 2015

I could write something similar about my travels around campus the day we (bauserman) blew the Nebraska game. 

Waaaait a minute....Nebraska.....and I grew up a Longhorn fan....this is all too much.

Understood my friend. It's a horrible, horrible thing.

For your son's sake I hope that's true. 

But to think that your town is the only place being ravaged by heroin is the height of ignorance

Comment 22 May 2015
Using heroin just once changes your brain chemistry forever. It's not like these kids are smoking weed and won't stop. They don't stop because they literally can't stop.

I think furyk's swing plane is a little more...crooked and jack moves his legs a little more. Whatever works though!

Comment 20 May 2015

for only fielding half of a professional team this year they still managed to increase attendance. I think last year's playoff berth will have a more permanent impact than 08's. Gotta stay healthy though!

Comment 20 May 2015

As an Ohioan who grew up watching the Braves on TBS, I think Cleveland is the more miserable/tortured sports city. Although Indians' attendance numbers from the last decade don't back this up, I feel like Clevelanders live and die more with their teams. They did have the longest sellout streak before the Sox broke it. Now, does Atlanta losing 2 NHL teams mean the city is miserable? Or that the fans are shitty? Or that hockey just doesn't fit in with that region? I can't say much about the Falcons or Hawks since I was born in 1990. For as big a market as Atlanta those two teams don't seem to have much pull nationally.

Off topic, I think you can break down the Braves streak into three groups:

~90-95 should have picked up another title

96-00 the Yanks were tough but you still had the pitching and two Joneses in their prime

01-05 should have had at least 1 pennant and too many NLDS losses but I think some of those playoff appearances don't happen without Bobby Cox

Go Braves!
