But he's a #BrokeBadger. How could he possibly be happy?
I was at the original white out in 2005. Straight out of college and with my girlfriend now wife. They talked sh*t after they won. Other than that, it was a nice experience and I came away in awe of the environment.
In my mind, the only rivalry is between the atmosphere in The Shoe and the white out. Ya, they care and they've picked us off a couple of times... and their fans are increasingly arrogant a**holes in the face of immortalizing a child rapist enabler.... but they just don't move the needle for me on the hate scale. M*ch*gan just is so much better at being arrogant pompous a**holes.
Plus, I grew up during the Cooper years. Sorry, but nothing compares to what I feel for m*ch*gan. That hate burns bright.
I appreciate the work putting this together, but I think I would state it as:
You must recruit at an elite level to complete at an elite level. However, recruiting at an elite level does not guarantee you will compete at an elite level.
Probably very tough to keep that perspective when all these adults are shining light up their ass. That's probably why they gravitate to a guy like Meyer (and probably a lot of coaches) who tells them they need to come in and work and get better. OR they just go to Kentucky to keep the good feelings going.
Most of these kids are probably just trying to keep everyone up to date because people are asking, and 11W is reporting it and creating content from it... because we the fans ask for it and click on it.
If you don't like the way it's headed - simply vote with your click (or non-click as it were).
It's all about extra time to prepare for oklahoma.
and it's funny, once i've resolved that page the first time... i can click the link in the article and it works. must by my browser knowing how to get there the second time. ... or 11W fixed the link in the HTML at the same time i was testing.
Have to have the http:// in front of it.
So easy to forget these guys in are in our facility grinding away to become future stars. This article was a nice reminder of a couple of guys that could be special.
I would like to be #4 now to have an easier path into the #3 or #2 spots with that win. I would rather play Alabama in the championship game then the semi finals. Although Urban may be better prepping with more time. I guess I would be happy with either.
Upvote for you in that I had the same reaction. I am deeply offended by individuals acting this way in our society.
But... I also think that the black population will naturally be more offended than the white population by that act. I don't think Nigel is wrong.
He could have been more explanatory in his comment but it wouldn't have lost a lot of it's effect. Conciseness is important to keep the audience. He wrote about the most important things he wanted to get across.
The other thought I had about the Halloween costume is that maybe it wasn't a statement about Obama or Hillary. Maybe it was more a statement about Trump... explicitly that Trump is a racist, a sexist, and a xynophobe. I'm not here to say that he is or he is not... as I respect the policy on this website. I'm only stating that perhaps these people were making a statement as much about Trump as anything. If you ask me what they were making a statement about.. I would say their message was probably taken the way it was intended... but there is another possibility here.
Those are pretty nice, actually.
You're right... it's just you.
Can't put this on just Paterno. He feels the full brunt but so does everyone and anyone else that saw anything and remained silent. There are enough "full brunts" on this one to go around for infinity. This is a general comment and is not in any way suggesting Schiano saw and remained quiet. Just stating the head guy should take the fall and so should any soldiers that were in lock step with him on this one.
Is this the old Jamie Farr?
I need to keep better tabs on Toledo news...
Now we as fans are antagonized by haters to defend something we have minmal knowlede of and can't possibly know enough about. But if we are dismissive we sound like all the Penn State apologists.
No right answer here. We have an implicated guy in a high ranking position. And we have another guy that was a Penn Stater for Life in a high position himself. I hope Larry Johnson's name doesn't come up. Brings our brand into a conversation we know nothing about and want nothing of.
He is speaking at an institution that is the "University of Mississippi" and calls itself "Ole Miss" and he makes a joke about others using an example of shorter words and smaller sentences.
I'm sure the irony is not lost on anyone here but the enormity of it leaves me speechless.
Does Urban Meyer not read these?
Nothing like expectation management for the young man.
Keep your head down Zeke!
Guess you could say some folks have their 'Rose' Colored glasses on. That's only a strike on Manute Bol.
Good for xBrax. Looks like he is having fun.
Gaining the moral highground against a fanbase that likes to play that game is never a bad thing.
He didn't mention Harbaugh. He apologized to his boss.
Classy Move IMO.
Where was Pat Forde on this!!!
Isn't he a little old to be taking middle school curriculum? I guess it explains his college football allegiances...
