I know.

I felt obligated to explain that highly suspect nomination anyway.  There's like maybe a dozen names here I actually have any personal recollection of (some people are bad at names, I'm horrific at remembering Internet/social media names - we can exchange a post or tweet today, and good chance I'll have no recollection of whom it was with four days from now).  So that I could recall actual posts by him says a lot to me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not that it's anything to take a great deal of pride in I guess, but my dude was a wizard when it came to issuing "MAD-ONLINE" cards and completely derailing an otherwise monotonous thread, in 20 words or less.

I've exceeded my weekly 15 mins of 11W.  Have a great Memorial Day.

Loved rereading this #hottake.

He fly fishes and is pretty damn impressive with a block of wood and a miter saw.  And those are just the hobbies I know of.  So, he's actually okay in my book.

He's still a ginormous, fat prick, though.

BassDropper was mentioned in the OP. 

Yes he was.

I edited comment months later to include him, despite his tendency to be nearly 100% wrong in nearly everything he spouted off about, and that's not an easy task. But it was his ability to rustle the jimmys and cause forum users to stroke-out that made me admire him in a bizarre sort of way.

The NBA isn't rigged.

I don't know if it is or if it isn't, although I sincerely doubt it. But if the league is indeed "fixed" a la WWE then they're not only blithering idiots (which I also highly doubt) but economic illiterates as evidenced by orchestrating the lottery in Cleveland's favor to acquire three 1st round picks in four years.  I mean, Cleveland is such a bubbling cash-cow with surpluses of disposable income and a thriving mecca that certainly captures the nation's imagination.  Ask the Tribe with their whopping 5,000 people on a week night.

Pine Barrens directed by Steve Buscemi remains one of my favorite Sopranos episodes to this day.

OP: I only own two series on DVD/Blu-Ray.  Game of Thrones and The Sopranos (both, ironically, HBO exclusives). Sopranos is definitely one of the greatest runs in US television history.

More improbable things have happened in college football within the last two years to COMPLETELY discount the notion. 

I haven't COMPLETELY ruled out Illinois or Purdue either, sooo...

Oh good!  Some kid will likely be promised a scholarship by adults, who will yank it 72 hrs prior to NSD if they coax someone else to their school they like more.

As one who sat through all 4 q's of 40-45 Cavs games this past season, I had very little hope going into the playoffs.  I have never felt better about this team than I do right now.  Not only do I feel the Cavs can beat (presumptive West winners) GSW, but I'm convinced they will do so in 5-6 games.

Living through MSU's success. How very SEC of you.

BVTW, always able to reduce everything to a common denominator and simplest terms.  Mint.

Glad I could help.

If I'm having a rough day, I flip on this YouTube file and instantly feel better.  Their current savior just had a pair of size 16 cleats removed from his tender backside and was being his typical abrasive, condescending self to the same reporters that hyped him into actually believing he could beat a national champ.  

All season, much like the posts from our Walverines in this thread recently, it was bold prognosticating about "Ohio's overrated!"  "WUR GUNNA HARBZ YOU!" , etc.,etc.  Just like every season.  And like every season, they have to go scurrying into the offseason spinning more hot-takes and tales of how "NEXT YR IS GONNA BE DIFFERENT".

Yawn.  I swear to God, this "rivalry" has been reduced to pomp and pageantry.  That's it.  I'm all for ending the season with a Wisconsin or MSU, because this one has left me feeling empty and unfulfilled.

Comment 09 May 2016

If it had been a Brady Hoke team, it would have been a competitive game, not the worst beatdown in the rivalry since Rich Rod's first year. 

So many saviors. I'm going to start losing count soon.

bork bork bork bork 

Exactly how successful Harbaugh will be at UM is yet to be seen, but he took a 5-7 team to 10-3 with a good bowl win. Not a mind-blowing year, but a step in the right direction for sure.

Minnesota let 19 secs run out on the 1 yd line, with an interim head coach with 1 and 2 star players.  If Kills doesn't retire the week before, UM is throttled by those same 1 and 2 stars.   Double OT to the 1 and 2 stars of Indiana doesn't help your argument either.  I'll give you guys the MSU game, but you lose either one of those Indiana/Minnesota games, you're playing Oregon in the Alamo Bowl and getting absolutely railed by Vernon Adams.  lol. It wouldn't even have been close. 

But hey, all your starters are returning.  Should be an easy mode clinic for the mighty Wolverines all season.  Should cruuuuuuush the Buckeyes in Columbus.  lol AMIRITE?  


Comment 09 May 2016

"This is our year" said every year.

My entire adult life these guys have been screaming in my ear "Two more years and we'll win a 'ship!!!!!"

"Harbaugh doesn't have his guys yet"

When's the last time you heard that about an OSU head coach?  lol

Comment 09 May 2016

But it wasn't Coach Harbaugh's team, it was Brady Hoke's team.

Harbz took over the team in Dec.  He inherited top5/10 recruiting classes designed for the exact offense he runs.  It was his team and he got severely punished.

This is the interview afterwards.  This is what a guy looks like and sounds like when he truly believes reality show he conducts and believing he could go toe-to-toe with a champion.  Nu huh.

I'll take "Midseason Panic" for $800, Alex... 

They turned out to be exactly who we thought they were - just Michigan.

Cubs are straight beast-mode. I've been cursed of being loyal to a fault - as such I'm an unapologetic, straight ticket CLE fan. But I'm not gonna lie, I reeeaaally enjoy watching the Cubs crush it on all sides of the game.  I watch them more than the Tribe.  I've even ordered two AliExpress knockoffs - pin striped Arrieta and a solid blue Rizzo.

Go Cubs!  Er....Tribe!

Fully approve the house cleaning this place has taken, lately. Few more left that will undoubtedly continue to "passive aggressive" their way out sooner than later.

Comment 04 May 2016

There is nothing like being a student in Columbus at The Ohio State University.  Nothing.  Football, basketball, sports and the electricity that accompanies them is great and all that, but a mere infinitesimally small fraction of what the entire Ohio State experience is about.  I'm jealous.  I want to live Ground Hog Day (but with 4 years as opposed to one day) over and over again in Columbus.  

Scarlet and Gray, everyday!
