Okay, I'm going to nominate a show that just started last night. Fox has a track record of putting shows on the air that are cool and funny and then gives them no support once they are floundering. Last night they aired the funniest show I've seen since Community went off the air -- "Last Man on Earth". It's on Sunday nights. Set your DVR's now cause this show is too good to last very long. I lol'ed many many times while watching.
I probably should just move on. But I can't help it.
Anyone else notice that charity in the Penn State mindset doesn't extend beyond the borders of State College? Seems kind of self-serving to me.
UV for you then.
George O'Leary resume fallout. Is that what you're thinking brb?
The truth is that the zealots have never been in hiding. Based on the outcry the moment they removed the statue, I knew at some point it was going to be restored or replaced.
The only thing we can do to check the cult is to make sure they know we haven't forgotten about their black stain. Otherwise they are going to operate on the false assumption that their whitewashing was a success.
I was thinking Buckeye fans should wear a black armband when we play them. Am open to suggestions though.
I have a request for my fellow 11W'ers. Can we refrain from using the term "JoePa" to refer to Paterno? That nickname is a term of affection of which I have none. I assume we're all on the same page in that regard.
Paterno would be joining Spanier, Curley, and Schultz in the charges of perjury, conspiracy and child endangerment were he still alive today. And although they may never be convicted in a Pennsylvanian courtroom, outside of PA all four have been deemed guilty by the court of public opinion. Their actions don't pass the smell test.
UV for all the Noodle Henge commentors.
If we don't have any significant injuries, Meyer will drink Harbaugh's milkshake in 2015 and they could play the game at the gates of perdition for all I care.
Honestly, the Big House doesn't intimidate opposing teams as much as Happy Valley. Wolverines jiggling car keys isn't going to give them a home field advantage. Besides the Spartans are going to beat the uppity of them many weeks before we get the chance (also at the Big House).
One more thing about that "tangled web" tweet. Seems like a pretty innocent slam at a rival, doesn't it?
But think about it for a second... who do you think Harbaugh intended that tweet for? It's not Meyer, the Ohio State football staff, Buckeye fans, or even Wolverine fans. That was a message to the 2016-? recruits that both Ohio State and Michigan are working on. The message -- Meyer and his staff are not trustworthy.
This wasn't lost on Meyer and company. That's why Pantoni responded with his own tweet right away.
The NCAA rules aren't set up to deal with social media. So while what he did before wasn't technically violations of recruiting rules, many PAC coaches argued his tweets violated the intended spirit of the rules.
Harbaugh very often would tweet stuff during dead periods that pretty much everyone knew was directed at specific recruits. But he would do it without including the subject's twitter address. And they would get the message because they were following him.
Kind of like his "tangled web" tweet was a jab at Meyer without specifically mentioning Meyer.
Anyways, we better get used to this bs as that was how he rolled at Stanford.
I agree with thajinn. Wilcher's response was indicative of his leanings as a UM alum and former UM football player. He has to be getting grief that none of his players are signing with Michigan. I see his response as an effort to change that direction with his players.
The fact that Harbaugh saw fit to provide one of his snide twitter responses might even give some credence that there was collusion between the two.
(BTW, we better prepare ourselves for the fact that Harbaugh is going to use twitter to abuse NCAA recruiting rules. That was his MO at Stanford. Several PAC coaches complained about this on multiple occasions.)
Cardale Jones isn't a Meyer recruit. He's a Tressel grayshirt.
I thought it was karmic payback for the fact that their fans were blowing freaking airhorns in the team's hotel lobby at 4 in the freaking morning.
Seriously, though, people forget that interception would have been overturned had the replay booth not lost all their video feeds. (According to the Big Ten, procedure is to check all feeds minutes prior to gametime. Which they did.) Giving the amount of shenanigans going on in State College that weekend, it wouldn't surprise me if a PSU fan was responsible for that "unfortunate" incident. Stupid idiots.
You clearly haven't experienced Denny's unique flavor of sarcasm/irony before.
Okay. Confession time. Preseason, I thought we'd lose one game and was 90% sure it would be to Penn State. I told about a handful of people this. And then VTech happened which made me think that we might lose to Michigan State as well.
After we pasted Wisconsin and got into the playoff, I was totally onboard with the notion that we would win it all.
So looking at the gif on this site: Bosa Hit on Mariota.
By the time Mariota releases the ball, Bosa takes a step and a half .... That's not enough time to stop momentum imo. And that's why there wasn't a call. Keep in mind that the gif is in slow motion.
Actually Archie Manning excused himself from the committee about halfway thru the PSC schedule. Due to illness.
The problem with win-all-your-games is that Baylor has the cupcakiest of OOC schedules... AND THEY SCHEDULED THAT WAY ON PURPOSE! You really need to read the post-nc vent piece on Our Daily Bears. Look at the comment section, they're completely on-board with the win-every-game strategy. They don't feel that the Big XII needs a championship game or that they need to schedule better OOC opponents. They believe all they need to do at this point is go undefeated and that Florida State proved that will work. (Never mind that FSU played Oklahoma State, Notre Dame, & Florida in their OOC. And that Baylor played SMU, Northwestern State (FCS), & Buffalo.)
He did make some very salty statements about Baylor not being selected after the four were announced. Specifically he said there should be someone from Texas on the PSC because he doesn't feel Texas was adequately represented. He then backpedaled a little and said there should be more southern members on the committee because football is played at a higher level in the south... or something like that.
The fact that he's still bringing this up is pretty good evidence that he's not over it.
11W has a guy for that. You need to get in touch with him.
Truth. Third was Wisconsin.
The big talking point among Baylor fans now is that "bowl results are not a confirmation of the PSC selection". They say the Bears would have played differently in their bowl if a title was at stake.
Kind of like how Tide fans negate their bowl losses due to the team being dejected from having to play in a lesser bowl. Ask Bob Stoops about his feelings on that. Amirite?
Love how Art Briles won't let this go away. Says a lot about his character. Maybe he's under the impression that if he cries about this enough in the off-season that the PSC will give him a makeup-call during next year's selection. Regardless of Baylor's OOC SOS.
I really, really hope they do the same thing to Baylor next year. Because the Bears fanbase is sticking to the notion that those cupcakes are actually going to help them get into the title game. If that ever happens, EVERYONE SHOULD BE SCREAMING ABOUT IT. Not just the team that got left out.
This makes me sick actually. The #PaternoCult have basically used lawsuits and victim settlements to whitewash the institutional complicity and coverup by Spanier, Curley, Schultz, and Paterno of a serial child rapist. Now they're going to spend millions more trying to convince the general public that nothing really happened in State College. Just watch.
What especially makes me sick is that Jim Tressel is banished from coaching until 2017 for covering up transgressions that pretty much everyone agrees shouldn't be NCAA violations at this point. But Joe Paterno, that sick fuck, his legacy remains intact.
The first Penn State fan that besmirches Tressel to my face is going to get a bloody nose for his effort. It's worth the bail & court costs IMO.
