All right good just checking. It just seemed so shady, there were a few words changed here and there and it didn't seem right. Sorry to start something out of nothing.
Am I missing something here? Kyle, you posted this article at 7:47. I just read an article on Yahoo posted by "The Sports XChange" posted at 9:00 pm that is very, very similar to yours. I call bullshit. Someone is plagiarizing you. Has this happened before and I just never noticed or saw comments about it? Is this a typical thing in sports journalism? I don't want to start something if there is nothing to start, but this is fishy to me...
The game is obviously not over when they storm the court. Remember that whole revelation we learned after the Cal game, about how they're winning in life because they actually learn things at their superior institution? At least we can count.
...he had a look? Is there a reason he didn't shoot?
That link to the Sooners blog cites the infamous "trusted sources". I'll believe it when someone is convinced enough to tell us their name.
It is just infuriating to listen to this - the double standard and circular logic is just appalling. Jesse Palmer says it's hard to ignore recent history, and uses that to justify giving an SEC team the benefit of the doubt with one loss. Yet his argument that recent history can't be discounted stops short of giving Ohio State credit for a 25 game win streak. Meanwhile, the lack of ranked teams on Michigan State's schedule is eviscerated, while FSU's opponent's ranked wins (Virginia Tech and Miami) are now unranked. Just come out and say it: 7 years later you still are penalizing Ohio State for a bad game against Florida. Your justifications are a farce.
I've done a good job keeping myself composed these last several weeks and toning down the tin-foil hat "everyone is out to get us" mentality but something just snapped in me listening to that drivel tonight. I hope our defense burns Lucas Oil Stadium to the ground next week because it sounds like that's the only outcome superior to a 21-35 loss to LSU.
This is so creative, well done.
I can't say I disagree with this. The University might not have officially sanctioned the event, but they tacitly allowed it to take place on state property. Every year I jumped, I always ended up back home that night wondering, only 95% sarcastically, if some particularly drunk person I had seen ended up surviving the night. The last thing we need is outrage against Ohio State's negligence, whether this is actually the case or not. There are going to be a lot of people upset by this but I think it's important to keep in mind people's safety, and on a larger scale the university's best interests. Imagine the public records colonoscopy (and subsequent state lawsuits) into OSU's knowledge of the danger while still allowing it to go on.
I for one always took it as a personal challenge to jump stone sober, except for the time I jumped in during May after our senior bar crawl, when I was the opposite of that.
Speaking of Oklahoma State - how about that big scandal?
I was just reading about Lane Kiffin's career stats, and I had completely forgotten he coached the Raiders before he was at Tennessee. It reminds me of the story from a while back about the couple who just kind of wandered into the White House for dinner and nobody noticed. How did this numbskull con his way into an NFL head coaching position? How and why did anyone think this man was capable of winning football games under any circumstances?
Good for Clark in green - he was in tears while he was broadcasting and his son was so close to getting past North Carolina a couple of years ago in the tournament.
I'm ready to see Amir do well, his time to break out has come.
Look at #24, I think you spelled "Minnesota" wrong.
Wow Les is 60?
I have learned my lesson about stories verified only by a "source" afraid to go by name. I'll believe it when someone who can stake their identity on it can cite it.
I stopped believing stories that begin with "Report:" long ago.
Oh thank God there's Eminem.
When I see scenes like this at schools like USC and Miami, I can't help but wonder what it would take for the Horseshoe to look like that. What catastrophe would have to befall the Buckeyes for us to lose interest like that? I honestly don't know if there is one.
I started reading this today without looking at the author, but after the fourth angry/bitter/sarcastic anecdote I had a hunch it was DJ. I can't wait to start saying TAKE IT AWAY, FACTS to people who are wrong about things.
No question, it's 2009. It was my senior year, and after a great road trip to the Fiesta Bowl the year before we had decided that we'd be going to the bowl game no matter what. During that timeout before the kick, I couldn't help but think about how weird it was that depending on how a guy I'd never met kicked a ball, I would travel to either California or Florida, two places I had never been at that point. I have Devin Barclay to thank for seeing Arches National Park in Utah, Las Vegas, and Pasadena. Although I guess I owe Pricky Stanzy the same debt of gratitude for getting hurt.
I've taught high school for three years now, and it has definitely taught me to reserve some judgment in situations like this. I have had some students that I know are good kids but have done some f'ed up stuff. This is why we have a legal system - Hyde was determined to have broken no laws and we move on. As for his character, that mistake doesn't represent the only behavior he is capable of, and I think we saw a better representation of who he really is in that press conference.
I could have done without the disgusting high definition shot of the moles on Brady's Hoke's fat grotesque neck.
Look at Kerry Coombs! I love it!
Holy moly what a cool catch that would have been
