OK, I had to re-read your post 4 times, because I kept wondering why this guy would be the one to let the Night's King pass through the wall.
Got mine as well. So how do you try to "upgrade" your seats? It just says something like you will get similar seats. Do they just automatically give you "better" seats based on how many people renew?
That's about as good as you can ask for with the exception of only playing TTUN once. Home and homes with the majority of the top teams, and don't have to go @IU and @Purdue. Hate those venues, their coaches, their teams, and most importantly their fans.
I'm fairly certain GRRM (who obviously is not a show runner) has said LSH is not going to be in the TV show. Whether the writers changed their mind at some point, who knows. But it seems pretty unlikely at this point.
I have to say I was bit disappointed in this whole Riverrun diversion. Before a few episodes ago, last we knew Riverrun was in enemy hands (Freys). Then they start this Blackfish plotline with him taking the castle back, the likes of whom we hadn't seen in over 3 seasons. It gets some characters in motion, but ultimately they hand it back with no fight and Blackfish dies off screen. The end result is what? Basically the castle is back to the way it was, and the whole thing could have been covered in a 2 minute seen where Sansa and/or Jon receive a raven describing what happened, which was almost nothing of note.
It always a pet peeve of mine when people say "nothing happened" after an episode, but in the case of Riverrun, they basically just walked us in a circle for a couple episodes while stalling all the momentum of the other more important storylines.
Since most of the answers are not serious or either (sorry) boring rap songs or 90's metal, thought I'd toss out something a little different. To me this song would go great to an OSU-biased hype video for The Game. Check out some of the lyrics.
"I am the killer of T(he) SUN"
Cue your favorite Wolverine killing Buckeye clip, many to choose from of course
"Collect your tears, shoot em down, even giants hit the ground"
Could go many ways with this, Rich Rod crying, Brady Hoke falling down, Buckeyes laying out TSUN QBs you name it
"Heard the echoes of mistakes call our name until we shake it off"
Every hated villain/rival has had their day, which makes burying them so much more satisfying. Brief clip here from 90's heartbreak Cooper era.
We could go on. Heck, even at the end of the chorus they go through an "OH - I" chant which could easily be turned to OH - IO and corresponding celebration highlights.
Somebody talented needs to roll with this!
I can already hear the defense now, they will use this BAC plus Will's intimidating size against him. And try to paint him as an enraged monster that Hayes only had 1 choice to protect himself.
Will it work in the end? I don't think so, but probably enough to smear Will's name further as this thing will drag out for months.
We as outsiders know only some confirmed facts of the case, but the one that clinches it for me is Hayes knee capped Will's wife before proceeding to shoot him almost a dozen times. The shooting of the wife and the overkill will far outweigh anything the defense can come up with, BAC or sketchy "witnesses" aside.
I know it takes 2 to tango and all that, but when will we ever learn that the key to a strong non-conf SOS is to avoid playing terrible teams? I'm too lazy to confirm, but would guess that 5-6 of our cupcakes are of the 250-300+ RPI type teams which will just murder your SOS. The upper level games against Providence, UVA, UConn, and UCLA are fine, it's just once you get past those pretty much everybody outside of Marshall and maybe UNC Asheville is completely terrible.
Yes, if only they would have managed to lose that game @ IU, they would have went on to win another convincing national title.
I'm being serious too.
I hope so as well, but since he has basically been hiding off screen for the last half of season 5, and the beginning of this season made me think about that. It seems like his basic strategy for the whole series, create some chaos then step away, only to come back and steal the throne when everyone has their guard down. It would be so GoT to have someone like him come out on top at the very end.
My prediction for the final scenes of the series....Jon and Dany lead their forces to a rousing victory over the white walkers and then start piecing back together Westeros. After some feel good celebratory event with cheering and high fives all around they return to their chambers for some rest, and out of the shadows steps none other than Littlefinger to shank them both in the back, fade to black. The end.
OK, I know we all love to hate the NCAA, but wasn't this ban a result of the conference ADs motion and subsequent passing vote? It wasn't as though the NCAA itself operated in a vacuum here.
Great example. I think this team compares very closely to the last NIT team, with Diebler, Turner, Koufas, and Lauderdale as freshman. The next season they improved some, but probably not as huge as some will be expecting here in 2016. 8 seed in tourney and lost to Siena, but they then went on to I believe back to back B1G titles and a 2 seed and #1 overall. Of course the tourneys didn't go as well as expected, but the point is the improvement was there in those players. The thing that put them over the top was a top notch recruiting class to mix with in 2011.
This team should be given the chance to make the same improvement. Next year ought to be a top 3-5 B1G finish and a lock status for the tournament, but maybe not a high seed. Then in 2017, with still almost the entire team back, they should really be a top 10 caliber team with a legit chance at a deep run. If that doesn't happen, then the Matta criticism is fair. The problem will be, this team is who it is for the next 2 years, with no room for an impact freshman to put them over the top.
My only hope with Lunardi is that he isn't put out there so much that he actually some subliminal sway with the committee. It drove me crazy during the home MSU game when he said OSU's non-conf was "awful and that's being generous". It was and is much better than 75% of the other bubble teams.
He is not always right either. Last year he had UCLA way out of the field, like around where he has OSU right now, and they got in. Granted, most people agreed with him that UCLA didn't belong in, but still. I guess the point is the committee can do some weird stuff from time to time, no matter what Joey Brackets says.
With all the other bids that have been "stolen" and a quickly disappearing bubble, I would not put TTUN in the dance just yet. IU was definitely the team I wish we were playing instead of MSU tonight.
Either way, this wasn't a good thing for the Buckeyes slim bubble hopes. It's looking more and more like we might have to win this tourney to get in. Although MSU + Maryland wins should probably get the job done.
Haha this time x1000. I honestly opened this thread, and saw the numbers and figured this was a thread to show Thad's performance in a positive light against some of his peers. Just not drawing the same conclusions based on the data presented.
Considering the vastly used and known terminology is that a "higher" seed is the "better" seed, your choice to use the opposite undermines your credibility. You must not follow basketball very closely.
That national championship by UCONN is the greatest example of how the NCAA tournament is a crapshoot and the best team almost never wins it. They were a mediocre 7 seed who I believe won their first game by a point in OT. Then just somehow went on to win the whole thing. Is that coaching or luck? I'm saying luck. That was one of the strangest tournaments ever. I mean they got to play an 8 seed in the finals. Granted a woefully underseeded Kentucky team, but still.
Definitely can't overlook PSU. They've been playing well enough to beat us if we show up with the B game. I expect a close game, but a win.
Tomorrow, who knows, maybe MSU will come out flat and finally miss some shots, even open ones, and give us a fighting chance. They've been pretty ruthless the last 2 times out.
Yeah, for a moment there it seemed like Thompson was becoming a low post scoring force. Very efficient. And then poof, he's been all out of sorts offensively the last few weeks. Giddens is still raw, but you do seem him make an effort to get to his "spot" and get that hook up. He has been making a few more of them than earlier in the season. Still like the potential of both of them going forward.
I am the same way. I almost can't not read it when someone says **spoilers** when it comes to the Walking Dead or Game of Thrones. But, I will say in this case, a good thing the show has done is mix it up from the source material. I base this off what I have read here and other places, have not read the comics. So while it is known that Negan is going to do something very bad very soon, it could be any of a number of different characters who are on the wrong end of it. And probably more than one.
None of which should be a surprise at this point in the show.
Crazy to think that two mysteriously play-called games against MSU is all separates that senior class from being one of the best, to the GOAT. I don't know that we'd have won the NCG in 2013 against FSU, but I do know we would have this year. We owe Sparty a decade's worth of beatdowns.
