I agree.  I don't like him, or his style, but I think he's a very smart guy (who's may be lacking in the common sense department).  I think he knows he a smart guy, and like you say, because he knows how smart he is, he holds a very contemptuous view of the rest of us - which eats away at his lack of common sense...resulting in asshole behavior.

I also think I just restated your original comment, adding nothing new myself...

"you make your little fucking dresses, I'll be the mayor." 

Please tell me this is true.  This is amazing.

Just read the Dispatch article...didn't know he was mayor at *37*!  Wow...WTF am I doing with my life, wasting away in this gray cube...

Definitely not a player, and didn't even make it to the bleachers before I broke it...tackled by a buddy of mine on the walk to the stadium from the tailgating lot.

But note, that I finished the walk to the stadium and made it through the entire game...because I was hammered.

EDIT: But an up vote for you...nice one.

Nice.

I have 1 of those screws myself when I broke my ankle at the 2006 Ohio State/Northwestern game (still have a plate and 6 screws in there).  In my case, the screw was used to keep my tibia and fibula close together while the tendon (that I tore), which normally accomplishes this, healed.  I wonder if that's what happened to JT?  I'd be impressed if he's playing football in the fall.  I know it took me almost a full year until I could run, etc., but I didn't have a team of medical pros and PTs working on me.  I'm jealous. Ha.

The Iron King, Cardale Jones, Poacher of Badgers, Controller of Tides, Slayer of Ducks, Troll Sultan, and 12th Son of Ohio

Walt should make a poster...

I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

The header photos of the Iron King, Cardale Jones, First of His Name, Poacher of Badgers, Controller of Tides, Slayer of Ducks, Troll Sultan, and 12th Son of Ohio will continue until the end of January.

When is the T-Shirt with that name on it coming?

What happened to the "Dude, you're getting a Dell" dude?

Finally, I can sleep at night.

I'm making the assumption that the Big12 already has a presence in Houston, TX because they already have 4 teams in the state of Texas, which - I assume - provides them access to Houston recruiting and the TV market.

Comment 23 Dec 2014

I'd be shocked if Houston were to get an invite to the Big12.  Other than adding one of two needed teams to host a championship game, I don't think there's a value add to the conference.

1. The program isn't that good - finishing in the Top 25 (AP or Coach's) 3 times in the last 25 years and 2 conference championships in the last 25 years. Since 1990 they've finished above .500 11 times and have averaged 6 losses/season.

2. They provide no gains in recruiting territory (Big12 already has Texas, Texas Tech, TCU and Baylor in the conference).

3. Similar to #2, there's no gains in the almighty TV market coverage - should they create a conference network, which they would be stupid not to

I'm no AD, but I think they'd be wise to try to expand their geographic footprint into populated areas (TV network), and areas with good recruiting - if possible.  Cincinnati would be an interesting target because you may be able to promote some sort of rivalry with WVU (may be a stretch), get you decent market share and in on the tip of SEC/Midwest recruiting.

I may get lambasted here, but I don't think it would be too crazy for them to consider Northern Illinois as the second team...

Comment 19 Dec 2014

I've been listening to the recording now for about 10 minutes.  It's nothing.

He basically comes off as really pissy that he was fired, and is moaning and complaining about the administration at Nebraska.  That's it.  He's pretty calm...lot of talk about lack of core values, how it went down, etc.  I think he was a little defensive too, but I would probably be in that situation too.

If his speech is considered to be cursing a lot, then I belong working on a dock somewhere...

The Stranger: There's just one thing, Dude.

The Dude: And what's that?

The Stranger: Do you have to use so many cuss words?

The Dude: What the f*ck you talking about?

The Stranger: Okay, Dude. Have it your way.

This is Double D, as nobody ever calls him:

I find him to be a bit of a douche.  The Mark May of CBSSports, if you will.  I've never heard him say anything remotely complimentary of OSU - in fact, it's usually the opposite.  Maybe it's happened, I've just never heard/read it.

And if it ends up Alabama and FSU? Well, Jimbo Fisher and Jameis Winston will have made America cheer for Notre Dame, Miami, Bobby Petrino, and Alabama. That's impressive.
