I proudly walk on 2 legs but this could be subject to change as I age. I enjoy both eating and drinking.
In high school I made a New Year's resolution not to eat anything purple. 25 years later, so far so good.
Sad faced clowns are KGB operatives meant to confuse us while they do spy stuff.

The character arc for the originals has been dramatic. If you're expecting constant terror, explosions, etc., you probably haven't noticed.

In one of the 1st episodes, Rick apologizes to a zombie simply for the fact that it's a zombie. In the most recent episode Rick has no hesitation in executing a living person.

Comment 27 Feb 2015

critics are calling the Tyrese episode one of the series' best. It was the first to provide a first person viewpoint of what it's like to be on your way to zombiehood.

As for the OP, Kirkman said early on that the show was intended to last 5 seasons.

Rewatch the Bama game. Someone is responsible for several of Bama's big plays and it wasn't Bell........  It's the same guy who gave up the long TD vs Oregon.

I love Powell and think he could be really good someday, but I will accept bets from anyone who thinks he's going pro early.  the odds of his playing time decreasing this fall > the odds of him turning pro.

Look up the write ups from other teams' break down of our defense. The writeup from an Oregon analyst basically said that Bell was everything you could want in a safety, with Powell being the exact opposite.

I dated a catholic girl who wore Notre Dame stuff on campus all the time and had a friend who wore his UTenn hat all the time. Nobody gave a damn.

IIRC either Fickell or Vrabel used to wear a Bama hat during their playing days at OSU. It was their lucky hat that they'd had since high school. Nobody gave a damn.

people turning this into a big deal are weak.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

as more teams gravitate towards the spread, the number of plays run by an offense could increase. That would increase total tackles per game; we'll see if those are spread out among teammates or certain players who rise above.

I also wonder if there are more defensive substitutions now than in the past.

So I guess it's ok for Weber to sneak in a visit to UM without telling anyone but it's not ok for Drayton to get another job.

Comment 25 Jan 2015

Almost every post in this thread is the reason why I think the he whole notion of UV's and DV's should be revisited. 

I've seen unpopular yet factual posts get DV'ed into oblivion. I've seen echo chamber posts receive a mountain of UV's despite being factually inaccurate.

11w would be much better served with a button that flags inappropriate posts rather than a UV/DV process that basically functions as a popularity contest.

Comment 24 Jan 2015

I don't think any play vs Bama or Oregon can be categorized as underrated. 

Pick any.number of plays from the Cincy game. The team was trying to develop an identity and some confidence. 

Urban has mentioned more than once that he thought JT's TD run in OT vs PSU was huge.

Comment 21 Jan 2015

"I will note that under Cardale, we didn't run many (if any) screen passes or HB flats, very little in the read-option, and the fly sweep game was used primarily as a deception for the inside zone."

if the above comment is true, it must've been really difficult for Wisky, Bama and even Oregon (to a lesser degree) to gameplan against our offense. Our tendencies went out the window; in-game adjustments were huge and whatever adjustments our opponents made clearly wasn't enough.

Comment 20 Jan 2015

No. ESPN should have an advantage at the moment; they have a 25 year headstart.

Sign with FoxSports. They'll throw in the kitchen sink to get ahold of the B1G's game inventory and they'll go overboard promoting B1G games. Delaney will have so much more clout with FoxSports than he'll ever have with ESPN.

Don't forget, if it weren't for ESPN execs treating the B1G like garbage in negotiations, BTN wouldn't exist.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

recent back to back champs:

Bama 2011, 2012

USC 2003, 2004 (vacated)

Nebraska 1994, 1995

Uncommon occurrence but not rare. Not easy to pull off but OSU is in great position to do so.

Comment 06 Jan 2015

agree on McElroy.

Their pro-SEC commentary wasn't as over the top as I expected and wasn't too far from the pro-B1G commentary on BTN. The callers on the other hand...........

Comment 05 Jan 2015

.... and we should not forget that Herman adjusted his playcalling to suit the strengths of whichever QB was on the field.

Comment 03 Jan 2015

Mandel, Thamel and Ramzy. Not mentioning Ramzy to be a homer. I really do think he's one of the best out there.

1. Wrong. Tons of new Christmas songs and some are really good. Get your Christmas music fix from a Christian radio station and you'll get a good mix of traditional carols, secular songs like Jingle Bells, and newer Christmas songs that are actually about Christmas.

4. Wrong. Dogs generally eat with a pack mentality- eat as much as you can whenever you can because you don't know when you'll get your next meal. No different than a large family eating dinner with a limited amount of food on the table.

10. You sit through 4 hrs of the SEC Network each day because a coworker insists on it? Grow some balls.
