No doubt Bo knew how to gameplan for Woody on both sides of the ball.  Also didn't help that Rex had the worst game of his career. Read in an interview, can't remember where, that Rex still has significant regrets about that game over 40 years later. Totally understandable, even tho it wasn't all on him.

Ohioscott, which Donatos did you manage?  I worked at the Brice Rd Donatos from 74-76.  Helped open the Tamarack location in 76.

Up until now, I was.  BTW did you hear about the mushroom who walked into a bar?  The bartender said "we don't serve your kind in here."

The mushroom said "Why not?  I'm a Fungi."

Maybe you've been living a sheltered life, or maybe you haven't followed the bucks for very long.  Nevertheless, the similarities between the two seasons have been stated many times... including this forum.  

I have faith in the mentality of this team, and the competitive approach taken by the coaching staff.  That said, The Game always makes me nervous.  Always.  Has nothing to do with jinxes.  Has everything to do with being a fan and watching The Game since 1967.  Experience tells us it's best to take nothing for granted.

Don't worry tho... one day... hopefully not for a few years... the Bucks will lose a game.  And there will be plenty of internet experts blaming everyone from Luke Fickell to Kerry Coombs to Bradley Roby to Curtis Grant.... to whomever the goat du joir will be whenever that loss happens.  Because sadly, most fans are only happy when everything is perfect.  If blaming me makes you feel better, that's cool.

The biggest worry I have is the same issue they had in 69... they enjoyed a ton of blowouts that season and really weren't challenged. This is where UFM is 180 degrees from WWH.  I don't see UFM allowing his team to get complacent.  This season could exorcise the demons of 69 in a big way.

That is a risky play.  If I recall it didn't work out as planned for the Gophers.  In order for it to work, some of the protection has to leak outside... if too many bodies start moving that way, the safeties will notice.  All about assignments.  If someone misses an assignment, it will go for some yardage... doesn't matter if it's a kickoff or a 1st and 10 at the 15.

 'we're going to see them (bama) anyway so you might as well ride to the game with me' 

And after his pick, it was obvious Vonn was riding shotgun.

Reggie Ragland knows what he is talking about.  He was assaulted during that game by Zeke's running attack.  Or, maybe they should have shown a pic of Dolodale knocking the dog shit out of Landon Collins:

I once saw a bottle of Kirkland brand scotch at Costco... no shit... went for 789 bucks.  No indication of who made it... my guess was Glenlivet but that's just a guess.

Wasn't willing to take a chance on it.  There was a bottle of MacAllen single malt in a fancy bottle... 25 years old... 1200.  

One of these days.

Makers Mark is smooth as silk.  WR is amazing... sweet and oakey.  Knob Creek for a third.

 I like Green Beer about as much as I like Hyenas

Everyone knows you only put coloring in cheap beer like Bud Light or something.

LOL upvote for both of you.  At least hyenas serve a purpose in the food chain.  Green beer sucks first time every time.  It's putting lipstick on a pig. Takes a gimmick to make a boring light American lager attractive, because lord knows it ain't the flavor or character of the beer that gets people to pull it off the shelf.  I have an idea!  Let's put some mountains on the can and have them turn blue when they get cold! Never mind the crap that's inside... let's advertise the container... not the product.

If it takes fancy packaging, clydesdale horses, or girls in bikinis to sell a product, it might not be all that exciting.

Yep and amazingly, there is more oil now than there ever has been.  Also in the 70's... the big climate question was global cooling.  The guy who was one of the loudest voices?  James Hansen... yes THAT James Hansen.  I remember two winters... 1977 and 1978... we had some cold spells in January that were unbelievable.  The oil in the engine block of my car froze solid. Had to hang a flood light beside the oil pan to keep it thin enough to turn the crank.  Remember driving up to campus on a solid sheet of ice.  I am hearing that these last two winters have been just as bad.

I can't help but feel he will be the starter this season.  Not anything against Braxton or JT.  They are still recovering and Dolodale will have the team throughout the spring.  He's got the momentum of the playoffs, and he'll have the momentum of spring going into summer.

Don't get me wrong I love me some Braxton and JT.  They are amazing athletes who would start for any top ten program.  I just think the Controller of Tides has the edge right now.  Sure hope they all get to play this year.  A lot.

I hate:

People who think the fast lane is for them to hog the entire time while going 3 mph under the speed limit.
