That's actually a pretty fair take on the show, I really don't disagree. Though in the end, whether directly based on Chinaski or plagiarized from Bukowski, we at least both agree they are similar characters. 

If californication was a direct copy of Chinaski, the first 6 seasons would outrageously depressing, with Chinsaki finally "triumphing" in the final season. The final season would also be depressing, but it would be because Hank got everything he really wanted but couldn't stop being a drunk, cynical, son of a bitch. 

That said (spoilers), the episode where Hanks father dies and Hank reads the letter where Father Moody says that he's proud of him and the only reason he never talked to his son about his books was he didn't think he was smart enough to talk about them without sounding like an idiot is one of the few episodes of television that made me get a little misty eyed.

Strange, they certainly didn't say much after the Buckeyes played another round of our favorite game, "Who Gonna Be My Bitch Today?" Bunch of jersey shore trash.

Anything written by Charles Bukowski.  I suggest you start with Ham on Rye, his most famous book.  Somehow darkly cynical, yet constantly betting tomorrow is gonna be a better day, Bukowski writes some of the most booze soaked novels in American lit.

Coincidentally, Bukowski's writings and life were the basis for Hank Moody of Californication, a fantastic television show.

Haskins, Id rather sacrifice a small amount of athleticism and running ability for increased accuracy I.e. Why I hope JT is still our starter next year. 

Comment 04 Oct 2014

I'm excited to see if he can really pull it together at the college level, and I hope he does.  The last guy who played in the same division of football as my high school was Storm Klein, and well, we all know how that one turned out.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

IF he plays this good every game from now on, including in East Lansing, then MAYBE start the heisman talk.  Until then though, lets just keep winning games.

Real early in the process, a lot of time left for the flip.

All right well just to put it in perspective when it comes tight end recruiting, there's no way scUM doesn't have a much better leg to stand on than OSU. Their two tight ends, Jake Butt and Devin Funchess (I know wr now but he was a tight end), who were both recruited and brought in by Hoke, have gotten way more targets, receptions, and touchdowns than the two Tight Ends of OSU at the same time, Huerman and Vannett. I definitely don't think their tight ends more talented than our tight ends, it's most certainly scheme related. So I can understand the draw of scUM over the draw of OSU in terms of tight end recruiting.

Does it look worse than when Dontre Wilson flipped from Oregon to us because Chip Kelley left for the NFL? Or when Gaeron Conley for that matter flipped from Hoke to us. Or is it only that it is a bad look for them when they don't flip to The Ohio State University?

Coaches are as much as any reason for a kid to want to go to a school. Hell it's an even more valid reason for kids who didn't grow up fans of that program, a la Chris Clark.

Also the 2011 Braxton to Devin Smith game winning touchdown pass  it was Halloween weekend so I was dressed like fat Marty Mcfly. We rushed the field. It was a fantastic post party.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

The 2007 OSU Michigan for two performances.

1. Beanie Wells with more rushing yards than scUMs entire offense (Henne, Hart, and Long going 0-4 against OSU because of it).

2. Vernon Gholston's four sack manhandling of Chad Henne. Especially the sack where he came in full blast and didn't even tackle Henne, he just laid him the hell out.

Funniest movie I've ever seen

Angry orchard and fireball. You're welcome

I was just about to post this, I don't think it's from osu though. I don't see Urban's signature on it. Regardless, whatever fan made this checks out in my book just fine.
