If the undefeated ACC champ is Clemson they will take priority, unfortunately, unless Georgia completely tanks. But I think Ohio State gets picked over Florida State if it is going to come down to those two.

Comment 25 Sep 2013

I think I remember Ohio State beating Oregon in the Rose Bowl recently.

well, it's not like it's a big deal. If you "like" it then jif is all yours.

The G stands for "graphics" not "giraffe-ics", so that is enough for me.


Look at it this way: let's say you are a brand new father or mother. You put on the birth certificate "Thomas" but you say the name is pronounced with the TH in place of the hard T.

This is totally cool...the baby's name IS technically THomas, but you don't get to whine when people pronounce it with a hard T, those people are also correct...and you as the parent knew exactly what you were signing up for (in theory).

I don't know where this came from, I got it from a friend, but I post it every time someone tries to convince me it is a soft "g" in GIF (and no, I do not care what the inventor of the gif says):

*I apologize for the foul language, but changing the text does not do it justice IMO.

"GIF is an acronym for Graphics Interface Format. Pronouncing "Graphics" with a hard "G" has nothing to do with the pronunciation of the acronym because... **** it, right?

Since we're throwing out the logical explanation of the pronunciation of GIF, let's find another one.

We don't say G.I.F right? Just like only ***holes say A.S.A.P (because that pretty much defeats the whole purpose of the acronym). We say ASAP.

Conclusion? We pronounce acronyms like words. Still following me?

What is the closest word to GIF?
Anyone...? GIFT!

Motherf***ing GIFT. In no way is there a dispute on how to pronounce GIFT. So let's remove the "T". What are we left with?

GIF, ****ES. Read it and weep. DEFY MY LOGIC, I DARE YOU!"

I don't get this "at least he's impartial" argument.

He's often critical of our team in constructive ways: great. awesome.

My problem with Kirk is that we all remember how ESPN and SI ripped us over tatgate, most of us would probably say unfairly. I don't recall Kirk putting up the slightest defense of us that year (at least on espn, perhaps on local radio).

But every time the Cam Newton issue came up, Kirk was right on queue: "we don't know anything yet, let's wait for all the facts, innocent until proven guilty, blah blah blah."

It's not like I am a person who wants to hate the guy, he's a Buckeye. But from what I recall--from that very dark year--ESPN, SI, and the like, used a few unfortunate truths to paint a picture of Ohio State that was laughably false. And Kirk--as I recall--was mostly silent on the issue.

As I said, I don't want to dislike the guy. But I just look at him now and see a guy who's "sold out", for lack of a better phrase. 

(I did not downvote you, by the way)

major difference:

Saban can develop OL talent

Bollman can't


pretty important for a power running game.

Comment 22 Feb 2013

a blizzard just swept through Arizona. For all we know the weather in Pasadena January 1st 2014 could be worse than Chicago.

Comment 22 Feb 2013

I see both sides of it as well. But this is the reason the NCAA will eventually adopt Olympic rules for "amateur" athletes.



Comment 31 Jan 2013

the way the whole voicemail thing was dropped is very strange. When I first heard them I was sure it was a woman. And there a few voice experts who listened to the the tapes who confirmed the voice was a woman, isn't that right?

As for this: "Could you show me the last time The Onion said "Fuck you" to someone on Twitter?"

That's fine, I see what your saying.

And if that kind of writing isn't your thing then I would highly suggest you stay clear.

But did you read the Te'o article? If yes, did you find it worth reading?

Does this tweet change your perception of that article? Will it prevent you from reading further Deadspin articles, even if they are as expertly researched as the Te'o one?

I'm starting to sound like a Deadspin salesman, lol (this article is actually the first Deaspin post I've read in weeks). But I'm just having trouble understanding what the big deal is.

Everyone is mad at Deadspin for doing something crass (that's fine), but where's the outrage at every single other news outlet for completely abdicating their responsibility in this entire fiasco?

I'm just saying I would gladly take an MSNBC/CNN/FOX/ESPN/CBSSPORTS News channel that told people to "fuck themselves" and did some real reporting over what they give us now.
