When he was announced as the head coach I was one of the few people that thought it was a good hire. If he could win in Corvalis with the horrible facilities they had, the lack of history, lack of fanbase, and lack of money they had then he can certainly win in Lincoln where football is king.

Watch out West Division of the B1G.

I just felt it ended rather abruptly. They could have really elaborated on what the Swiss government official and former FIFA executive was trying to pass in law to reign in FIFA.

Talk about what some options are for other nations that dont appreciate the corruption. What can UEFA do (remove themselves from FIFA a la the major 5 threat to the NCAA), what can CONCACAF do, what are some options for BPL/La Liga?Bundesliga, etc. 

Talk about the corruption in the law exemptions FIFA requires a country to have in order for that country to get the World Cup (tax exemptions, alcohol sales, credit cards, etc.) 

Here's a good article on Sepp

E + R = O

PS: Who knew Cabot Rea and Colleen Marshall were still on TV? I haven't watched Columbus local news since 2001 maybe... looks like they have ambition.

NO... it's not a contest.

Margot Robbie is Mike Tyson and Ronda Rousey is Tommy McNealy in that scenario.

My reason would be that people rarely come back from shoulder surgeries just as good as they were before. If you look at pitchers and QB's the only ones that I can think of are Drew Brees and Stafford.

I think the data is even worse for pitchers.

I think it's hilarious that Hackenberg is that high on people's draft boards. I'm sure he'll be the next Jimmy Clausen. Seriously, what has he done to give people the belief he'll be good?

It's insane that people give Cardale shit for having 3 starts. I'm sorry, but there has to be a weighting factor to those 3 starts. Let's see Christian, you started for most of two seasons but have never really played in a meaningful game... unless you consider the Pinstripe Bowl meaningful... and in those meaningless games you've been average to slightly above average.

Now, to Cardale Jones. You've only started 3 games. However, just B1G Championship alone was a more meaningful games than most college QB's will play in their entire college career. You played well and dominated that team. On top of that, proof that it was not a fluke, you went on to beat the consensus #1 and #2 best teams in college football en route to a national title.

In this image...Hackenberg is on the left and Cardale Jones performances are on the right side...

Boateng fell like an illegally logged tree in the rainforest

Although I dont like Barca that was silky.

Lloyd: They've got the Monkees... they were a major influence on the Beatles.

Harry: Yeah, I know.

Lloyd (to waitress): Excuse me Flo...

Harry & Lloyd: Laughing...

Lloyed: Flo... like the TV show. (pause) What's the soup du jour?

Waitress: It's the soup of the day

Lloyd: mmmm... that sounds good, I'll have that.

Comment 06 May 2015

I am serious, and don't call me Shirley!

Comment 06 May 2015

Cop: Pullover

Harry: What?

Cop: Pullover

Harry: No, it's a cardigan but thanks for noticing. (pulls on cardigan to show it to officer)

Lloyd (leaning over to talk out the driver side window): Yeah... killer boots man! (gives thumbs up)

Cop: Pull your vehicle to the side of the road.

It's because of the clout of that WVU diploma.

Seriously though... I'll take Nick Conner after his performance in the spring game. Good luck being mediocre in the Big XII.

Comment 01 May 2015

9 tackles for a DL is pretty good... but that could have been aided by the fact that we were up late and running the ball. Not too sure.

I'm not afraid of venomous snakes, feral pigs, eating bugs, mosquitoes, etc... the one thing that would get me is if you put me in a scenario where I needed to enter a body of water and I couldnt see the bottom.

I dont like not knowing what's underneath. I dont like the feel of mud, algae, etc between my toes.

First, it has to be one of the least sexual environments to be honest. Yeah, you're naked... but you have dirt up your ass, you smell like shit, you're getting bit by mosquitoes in the worst places (yep)... etc, etc.

Btw, it started last Sunday (4/19).

I hate camping so I wouldnt be able to last, but more than anything it is a mental challenge. I love the delusions of thinking I could survive and how it would be such a mental boost but... alas I would fail.

I actually would love to see that guy Matt from Dual Survival do Naked & Afraid. That dude is insane. He can make a shelter like nobody's business... he can hunt like a badass... he makes fire like Merlyn the Magician... and he lives off the land in Utah months out of the year without any food or shelter.
