Sure, keep focusing on him and his statement. MY beef with you was that you sounded like an asshole. You can make your case without being an asshole. If you wanna keep going round and round with this, feel free. But a simple step back is all that I was suggesting.

Here's an example: "I don't think your premise is accurate." vs. "More made-up bullshit." Maybe you won't be able to see the subtle difference, but if you can, it may help you in future interactions.

It's ALWAYS worse to be an asshole. Always.

And how do you know he didn't turn on ESPN Classic one evening, find an SEC game on with an SEC game up next, and decide that ESPN Classic "always plays SEC games". That would be no different from you looking up the schedule for today, seeing a B1G game on the schedule, and deciding the guy is a liar.

But, if you do so withOUT being an asshole, well then, you're not an asshole, you're just pointing out your truth. The way YOU do it is by being an asshole. But whatever works for you, I guess.

Wait, that means that Vegas thinks State Penn is going to keep this one close. I expect that gamblers will be taking the Bucks knowing they're only giving 12 points, and that line is going to start climbing. Might reach 17 or more by Friday.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

I watch the replay over and over, and those DBs are getting into the WRs just as much as the receivers are getting into them. It's a bad call, at a critical point in the game. It's highly questionable, inconsistent, and tho I hate ND, they have every right to feel robbed on that call. The ONLY reason it was called is because Dumbo Fisher complained to the refs about a similar play in the 1st half. A play which is identical to a play we scored a touchdown with against Md.

However, the recusal policy does not keep those same folks from being involved in votes for teams that they may have a natural bias against or affinity for. For example, Condi Rice and Pat Haden will still cast votes on Oregon's fate, or Tom Osborne would still vote if Oklahoma (their old rival) or MSU (one of their new rivals) were being discussed.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

We run a variation of the play that's beyond the line of scrimmage. Most teams do. I watch a lot of college football and RARELY see that call made, let alone at the end of a close game, on a play that the call effectively decides the outcome.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

Holy crap, upon further review, this horse shite poll has Michigan State at #16?!!! Behind teams like OK, Baylor and TCU, and also LSU, USC and UCLA. I think drugs are involved in the assembly process for this nonsense. And not good drugs, shitty drugs, most likely, like cheap, late 70s era high school crap weed.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

That FPI is another totally bull sh@t, ahem, bogus "ranking" tool that they completely made up. SEC teams make up 5 of the top 6 spots. Any "ranking system" would have to be ignoring actual results if it has Auburn and Bama at 1 and 2.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

If last year's defense had played even close to the level that we're playing right now, we'd all be basking in the glow of last year's Nat Championship. I'm proud of them and pleased with the major progress we've made in only half a season.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

Also, in the Miami game, the play to Gamble near the end of the 1st overtime was an incorrect call, because it wasn't pass interference. The call should've been holding on the DB, but same result.

AND, Miami got a similar call ON Gamble that then gave THEM 1st and goal in the 2nd overtime. 

Comment 19 Oct 2014

The rule is there for a reason, it's rarely called though - hence the large number of "pick" plays in football right now (ncaa & nfl)

Which is EXACTLY why it was a bogus call. We see plays like that time and time again, every team runs them including the BUCKS. We have receivers blocking with the ball in the air ALL THE TIME. Everyone does! Those triple sets are in every playbook of any team that gets labeled a "spread" team.

If that play would've stood, with out any flag, you would have heard NO ONE (outside of Seminole fans) complaining that the play was illegal. FSU ran the same play, earlier, similar results, but because it happened on 2nd down at midfield of a game they trailed in, there was no call. It's a play that's run HUNDREDS of times in games around the country, and doesn't get flagged.

That was a bogus call. And trust me, nobody dislikes ND more than me.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

It's a huge assumption that many seem to be making, that Russell is a one and done. He's a great ball handler, and in the absence of a great PG like Scott, HE would be playing the point for OSU this season. Add to that the fact that next year will bring in another great dribbler and passer in point forward Mickey Mitchell, and the Bucks look to be fine in the point guard department for the next 3 years, with  our current commits.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

He runs so much like Robert Smith. I also see glimpses of Marcus Allen. He's a special talent.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

Sorry, dude, that is just not correct. Germany is now supplying 3/4ths of their electricity with wind and solar. It absolutely can be done, and should be done. We are behind in this, with the exception of Texas, believe it or not. Texas is manufacturing solar panels at a record clip.

Go back and do some research. I'm not trying to be snarky, but your comment sounds like it's from 10 yrs ago.

Lastly, no energy in this country is more subsidized than the fossil fuels industries. That is a fact. Subsidies for wind and solar are tiny compared to fossil fuels.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

I get why those in coal country want us to continue using coal, but coal is NOT the cheapest source of electricity. Because you have to factor in the financial costs of the damage that coal does to our environment, and our health. Also, wind and solar are actually cheaper. Once you've invested in the equipment, you're harvesting a free energy source. You have to look at the costs over the long term. Also, no additional health ramifications or environmental impacts for solar and wind. West Virginia is already exploding with creating jobs for solar installers, and coal jobs continue to shrink. It's only a matter of time.

Lastly, in terms of fossil fuels, natural gas at this point is more abundant and is a cheaper and cleaner fuel to use than coal. The problem with natural gas is that there aren't very many natural gas burning generation facilities, and it doesn't exactly make sense to spend the millions it takes to build them. Thus, wind, solar, and geothermal are our best long term solutions for electricity, along with some of the newer technologies, like harvesting the energy of the tides. And of course, continuing to use and improve our nuclear facilities.
