I had a very appropriate song come on while reading this; Rage Against the Machine's "Bombtrack". For those not familiar here's a common refrain throughout the song...

With the thoughts from a militant mind
Hardline, hardline after hardline

Landlords and power whores
On my people they took turns
Dispute the suits I ignite
And then watch 'em burn

Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn

Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn

I laughed way harder at that than I should have. Well played Oyster!

Comment 25 Sep 2014

That they did, but why ruin it with facts?

The top Conference's runner-up losing to arguably the weakest power 5 conference 3rd or 4th worst team would be a flop if the B1G were the top and SEC was the bottom. Maybe not every one thinks that way, but it sure seems that's how ESPN would spin it.

Comment 25 Sep 2014

These facts don't negate that it did indeed take place... I know where you're coming from and I get what you are saying, but if the administration didn't want this to happen then why would it have happened in the student union? When these deals are made Michigan would have been notified of Coke's intent prior to the event. You're a lawyer, correct?

If so you would know that Coke would have to had Michigan sign off on the campaign or risk legal action so how would you try and spin it that Michigan had no idea that this was happening? The Athletic Department being a part of Michigan would likely have knowledge of administrative on-goings.

This is only made better by the UCONN fan dancing in the background.

It could be argued that it is not a part of the engine, but I was thinking the same thing Oyster.
 

Comment 24 Sep 2014

Not true. Words carrying no meaning add nothing - such as "that" - should be eliminated at all costs. Writing, as George Orwell said, should carry no extra words as an engine has no extra parts.

There DJ I fixed that for you based on the rules you provided.

The story of the kid that had cancer and named it Michigan and Hoke's reaction to it is what made me like the guy on a personal level, but he's not the coach Michigan needs. Good man, good recruiter, average coach.

Tried to order a Smithwicks when I was in Dublin. The bartender looked at me funny, thought for a second, and said "Oh you mean Smiddicks here ya be." I didn't have any trouble ordering a Guinness though so there's that I guess... That trip was the best overseas trip I barely remember.

I seem to recall that one of the picks in the VT game was a ball that the receiver should have caught, but instead let it bounce off them and into the defenses hands similar to the one in the Kent St. game.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Living in Dubuque, I can confirm the same up here. No one even mentions football. Growing up in Ohio where football was life, things are certainly different out here.

Comment 29 Aug 2014

My 3 favorite beers are

  1. A cold beer
  2. A free beer
  3. My next beer

Maybe I need to be a bit more picky?

I'd say look out for Iowa in the West. They have a favorable schedule and are due for one of their once a decade good seasons.
