They're really doing their own thing with the movies. They're taking bits and pieces from the comics, but the movies are meant to stand on their own.
Btw, Phil Coulson please report to the Big Screen please.
And a big AMEN to that! I know the movie is packed and all, but they need to sprinkle in some AoS.
I was wondering how they were going to tie finding Bucky into the overall Civil War plot. From what I've read, the after-credits scene in Ant-Man, and now the trailer, it looks like whatever international organization was formed by the Sokovia Accords has reason to go after Bucky, and Natasha is trying to talk Steve out of getting involved. My guess at this point: some atrocity is committed, and the evidence points to Bucky, but it was actually committed by someone else - possibly Rumlow (Crossbones), since in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., HYDRA is still very much alive, and it all ties in together.
That's why I like where Marvel has gone with all this, tying the movies, TV shows and web series in together. Unlike DC, where you have the movies separate, Arrow and Flash in their own universe, and Gotham just sitting there by itself.
Also, guessing Vision and Wanda become an item in some way, shape, or form.
I'd almost attribute their defensive drop-off to fatigue, and possible complacency/faith in the offense to bail them out (because, let's face it, Rudock is a far different QB than he was at Iowa, and his receiving corps is solid). I don't expect complacency from their defense on Saturday. They will come out and throw everything at us, including the kitchen sink, the baby with the bathwater, and so on. The only way we weather the storm is to match their intensity, and given what happened last week, Urb has his work cut out for him.
Well, as long as we're going this route...
I want us to beat TSUN so badly that the ghosts of Fielding Yost and Bo Schembechler exorcise themselves.
I want us to beat TSUN so badly that Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke put up billboards all over Ann Arbor that say "Miss us yet?"
I want us to beat TSUN so badly that by the third quarter, Jake Rudock is shouting random phrases at the line in the hopes that he guesses the safe word.
I want us to beat TSUN so badly that Desmond Howard's Heisman gets up and walks back to New York.
I want us to beat TSUN so badly that Jim Harbaugh drunk-texts Jed York begging to be taken back.
That's all I've got for now.
The loss on Saturday is on the coaching staff, and given the success we've had, I choose to believe that Meyer & Co. will right the ship. Haivng said that, any scheme that the coaches could come up with is useless without the right personnel to pull it off. Being at or near the top in recruiting is always important. I choose to see the big picture, past the results of one game. It is not realistic to expect any team to win every game they play. We are blessed that we haven't had to experience that feeling more often.
"... I take full responsibility for the inaction that has occurred.
Can inaction occur? If nothing happens, does nothing happen? Whoooaaa...
We've had three targeting calls against us this season, if I recall correctly: Bosa, Williams, and Perry. With Bosa, they kept the penalty but determined no targeting. With Williams, they enforced the targeting and ejected him. With Perry, they retracted the penalty altogether. And while I think Roby's call was bogus, it was, what, two years ago? Rules and enforcement have changed. We need to accept the fact that we will never go back to a Jack Tatum or even a John Lynch style of play (Bucs fan, can't help the reference). Until they invent helmet technology that ensures a reduction in concussions and other head and neck injuries, these rules will be in place. As I said, it sucks for those of us who have been around the game for decades, but I see why they are doing it.
I had the game on mute, so I didn't hear the reasoning at the time, but from what I could see on the replay, there was no helmet-to-helmet contact. It was a legal hit, and I'm guessing the replay official saw the same thing.
To be fair, I probably would have thrown the flag, too, as a precaution, because Leidner's head snapped back pretty hard.
My mother-in-law apparently thought that the disco classic "Do the Hustle" was actually "Do the Hot Dog".
Yeah, that's the other thing with this one. Completely clueless on Excel, and we do a good portion of our work in Excel.
1) We brought in this temp one time, and it was around Christmas, so people were decorating their cubicles. This woman built a cardboard gingerbread house to encase her desk, which would have been more impressive if she didn't work on it while she was supposed to be doing the work that she was brought in to do, and also if she didn't take naps in it during work hours.
2) I may have brought this one up a long time ago, but we had one guy who kept a mannequin head on his desk and would comb its hair. My then-supervisor had to step in and make him get rid of it because it was creeping everyone out.
3) Current coworker, been in her position for over a year. She was hired because she has a couple of decades worth of experience in our particular niche, which is rather rare. She can't remember anything to save her life. She's asked the same questions over and over. Things that should be second nature by now, she still has to ask about. I'm not talking complicated things; basic everyday processes blow her mind. I'm wondering how much of her resume was BS.
"Urban Meyer's Roadkill Grill: You kill 'em, we grill 'em!"
It's amazing how many times he keeps referring back to Urban's time in Gainesville, which, let's face it, is ancient history. Guys like Travis and Bianchi have to go to that well so much that they're fighting over the last bits of dirt at the bottom, because the damn thing dried up so long ago. Urban has run about as good a program in Columbus as anyone could have hoped for, and they just can't stand it.
Mrs. Lealman and I met in a chat room, talked for several months to make sure one or the other wasn't a psychopath, and then met up. We were married 11 years ago this past September (on a Thursday, so no football was missed). It is becoming the norm to meet online, and there's nothing wrong with it as long as you're appropriately cautious.
Whatever Meyer said must have hit pretty close to the mark if this guy was that fired up about it. There was probably some talk about some of the distractions that FSU has historically had to deal with (see Warrick, Peter, and Winston, Jameis, for example). While I agree that Meyer has had his share of distractions on his teams, especially in Gainesville, FSU was probably the most timely example given when the book was written. My response to this guy would be: "Well, if they don't want to be talked about, they shouldn't act like immature morons."
Temple is the most likely to fall, but I actually like them to beat the Domers.
Coach Harbaugh tries the Pied Piper's flute to sway recruits, after the experiment with the magic beans went horribly awry.
Sorry for the double post, guys. Mods, if you want to combine them or delete one, go ahead. My bad.
