Instant upvote, this is still one of my all-time favorite commercials!
The Horned Frogs haven't been the same team since narrowly missing the playoff in 2014 (editorial note: neener-neener).
and herp-a-derp past Vanderbilt for the second straight year.
Thank you, my keyboard and monitor needed cleaned anyway.
At your service.
He said "Offensive Line Performance" which is the training facility that LeCharles Bentley runs. Nice shout to a former Buckeye, but yeah, I would have rather heard "THE Ohio State University." And I'm with SO AMAYSN below, I'm over his shit too. I laughed when he made those comments about TP. Pot, meet kettle.
Haha no worries...the MSU and TSUN games are pretty sure bets to have it if everyone continues playing well!
I meant that partially tongue-in-cheek, but also hadn't realized Louisville had jumped up that high.
This game will get ESPN College GameDay in lieu of Ohio State-Oklahoma. Houston's upset of Oklahoma in Week 1 may have contributed to that.
The fact that our game is on FOX probably was a big contributor too.
Reminds me of this...hopefully it has the same ending!
The 30 for 30 on this, "Fantastic Lies," was outstanding. Shows just how deep the corruption went with the DA and the cops. I'd encourage you to watch, but the short version is they not only cancelled the entire lacrosse season after this happened, but they brought the accuser in to show pictures of who might have done this to her. They showed every member of the lacrosse team and essentially told her to "pick 3 of them." They did finally determine, through DNA and cell records (among other things) that there was no possible way these guys could have done this.
Almost everyone not only assumed they were guilty, but they wanted those guys to be guilty. Durham certainly hasn't forgotten about it. They've moved on, and the city is in a much better place than it was 10 years ago when this happened, but they remember down there.
Sorry for the long-winded post. This is one of the best 30 for 30s done (and it's not easy to narrow those down), and I just wish a lot more people would learn from the lessons of that series of events.
Oh, the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival is definitely still a thing. One of my best friends is from there, and there's signage and stuff up in that city year-round for that event. He won't eat any other kind of sausage.
Long Beach Poly is a high school, yes, but there also is Cal Poly University.
I've been fascinated with those cases myself. If you want a really good read on them (mostly Biggie's, but some Pac too), read Murder Rap. It's written by the lead detective on the case. I couldn't put it down.
I couldn't agree more about the MSU game. You just kind of knew it was coming at some point, because the expectations were so out of control that nothing shy of 70-0 victories was good enough. I get the talent level, sure, but when does it ever work out that way? It's funny how the teams that are seemingly "a year away" tend to be the ones that win it all (see Ohio State, 1968/2014 and Florida, 2008). Huge expectations led to "disappointing" seasons in 1969/2015 and 2009, respectively.
Sadly, I knew the 2015 Buckeyes weren't destined to repeat after game 2, when people walking out of the Shoe were legitimately angry at a 38-0 victory. Just win, baby. Alas, as you so aptly put it, oh well, haha.
Thank you, Matt. This series was simply outstanding, and it was a joy to relive (most of) these seasons. Go Bucks!
ESPN Headline: SEC Power Tennessee wins awesome gritty game against someone.— Michael the Fan (@CWGBuckeyes35)
Sad but true best tweet of last night. Oh well, they'll get their asses handed to them soon enough. They're not good.
Our team went 12-1 last year and double-whooped Michigan and Notre Dame. We acted like we got dragged over broken Budweiser bottles.
Yeah, let's try not to act like that again this year, kids. We only get one football season a year, let's enjoy it! Go Bucks!
I'll be at the Shoe. I like where your head's at, though...enjoy some breakfast beers!
I'm pissed the Houston-Oklahoma game is on at the same time as the Buckeye game. Love Coach Herman's approach, no place for anyone who doesn't buy in to the culture you work so hard to build.
Thank God autocorrect wasn't around then...
Yup. Believed it then, believe it now.
Don't forget Joe Thomas Barrett IV!
Yes, and Jason Garrett is absolutely right. I tweaked my hamstring running track in college, ignored it and then felt the dreaded pop warming up for a race. Came back too soon (twice, actually) and it ended my season. It starts feeling better and as soon as you try to go 100%, it tweaks or pops again, and you're right back to square one. Incredibly frustrating, as is hearing people dismiss the injury as "oh, just a hammy." No. No such thing, anyone who says that has never had that experience. That injury will F up your universe if you're not careful.
I've been fortunate that it's the worst injury I ever sustained in my career, but it was hell trying to get healthy and strong again. Get well, Zeke!
I'm all for bringing back the Hive. Quick Cals are ok, but the Hive was awesome, and they still do it at basketball games.
Also, I'm sorry, unpopular opinion alert, but we should really stop calling "Jump Around" at Wisconsin "one of the great college football traditions." OSUMB's ramp entrance, Script Ohio, Chief Osceola and the flaming spear, Howard's Rock at Clemson, THOSE are great CFB traditions. Jump Around is ok, I suppose, but I just don't get why everyone loses their shit over it.
I agree on this one, though there would have been a natty to vacate for that year if they don't lose vs. WI.
Be right back, going to go repeatedly hit myself in the hand with a tack hammer for about an hour.
Maybe I'm overly optimistic (or I just want the Cavs to win so damn bad...and I hate the Warriors), but I honestly think the Warriors did not expose anything fatal for the Cavs last night. Everything that went wrong last night is fixable.
Also, if the option is Shaun Livingston having the game of his life to beat us instead of Curry and Klay going off, I'll take it. GS was willing to let Bron, Kyrie, and KLove get theirs and shut down everyone else, and it worked. More contributions from JR, Channing Frye, Shump, and Delly are needed, but it's doable. Go Cavs! #ALLin216
