Everyone's written off Dontre. He's still one of the best playmakers on the offense, and he'll show it this year. So, in that regard, yes, I think he's going to shock a lot of people. Particularly the fans who think he's overrated and completely wrote him off because of his injury.

Comment 24 May 2015

Definitely not a problem. Judson is a stud. He's a good enough athlete to play WR or DB at the next level. He's really, really good.

Comment 24 May 2015

He was overhyped his freshman year. He's not overrated in the slightest, considering that a lot of our fans keep on talking about how soft he is or how overrated he is. People forget just how good he is. He's going to shock a lot of people this year.

Adam Kramer is the best national CFB writer in the game today. 

Comment 16 May 2015

Ha, I grew up as a diehard Utah fan, I hate Austin Collie more than I could ever hate Max Hall. 

Comment 16 May 2015

I think it's weird that people get so up-in-arms about ESPN personalities being homer-ish, but get on Herbstreit for not being homer-ish enough. 

Comment 16 May 2015

Until the testing catches up with him again?

lol who cares? that would only make the meltdown more hilarious.

at this point, I'm really emotionally invested in seeing everyone freak out. 

Comment 15 May 2015

I hate the Pens but I respect the hell out of Crosby's work ethic and ability. But man I love watching Dubi get under his skin.

As far as hockey players to hate in today's game (who actually deserve it more than Crosby), here's a list:

  1. Milan Lucic
  2. Brad Marchand
  3. James Neal
  4. Corey Perry
  5. PK Subban (great guy off the ice, fun to watch on it, but plays dirty sometimes and whines a lot) 
  6. Dustin Brown
  7. Zac Rinaldo
  8. Alex Burrows
  9. Mike Ribiero
  10. Tom Wilson
  11. Jeff Carter (although I'd love him if I wasn't a diehard CBJ fan)

And as a CBJ fan, I absolutely love Scott Hartnell, but he's the kinda guy that you hate if he's on the other team. So maybe he belongs on that list.

Comment 15 May 2015

Yankee fan here -- went from loving A-Rod when I was a kid to hating him, to loving him again somehow. I really want him to go on a tear and win MVP this year just to watch everyone's heads explode. 

Comment 10 May 2015

I will also very proudly display it, but putting that in my window is the most straightforward way that I can acknowledge that my time here as a student is over. It's such a magical place that even acknowledging that is kind of heartbreaking. But yeah, thank you! I'm officially part of the greatest club in the world. 

Comment 10 May 2015

Haha, thanks man. Owls are the best animal ever and I refuse to hear otherwise.

Strangely enough, this community of online strangers has meant a lot to me these four years. And I'm beyond grateful that I attended a university with such an ardently loyal following that communities like this can even exist in the first place. 

Comment 10 May 2015

SAVOR IT. 

I'm not exactly sure how long my "no-crying" streak was, I'm assuming it was around seven or eight years. I broke that today when we sang Carmen at commencement. Luckily, I had sunglasses on. But yeah.

Comment 10 May 2015

I didn't think they could top the Mike backstory episode of BCS, but then Pimento absolutely blew it out of the water.

I also didn't think Odenkirk would top his performance from Fargo last year and again, he absolutely outdid himself. Dude deserves an Emmy. 

Comment 10 May 2015

The dialogue in BCS is absolutely top-notch. Different tone in the first season, and Bob Odenkirk absolutely deserves an Emmy for his performance.

All-in-all, I think the first season of BCS is better than the first season of Breaking Bad was.

Comment 09 May 2015

It's also the new Yankee Stadium.

I'm a diehard Yankee fan, I never got to go to the old stadium but I've been to the new one. Gorgeous stadium, but it hardly ever fills up. Doesn't need to, because they priced the building so highly and they get enough revenue that they don't rely on ticket sales as much as most other teams do.

Comment 08 May 2015

I don't get the Simmons hate. I'm a big fan, and Grantland is incredible. Of course, it's outgrown him. But still, he's one of the best personalities on ESPN. 

Maybe it's the skeptic in me, but I think this is because he was one of the only ESPN people who refused to carry water for the NFL during the Ray Rice scandal. 

Comment 06 May 2015

Yeah don't try telling that to the "COME TO OHIO STATE OR LOSE TO OHIO STATE, HAVE FUN BEING MEDICORE AND GETTING NO CHAMPIONSHIPSZZSZ BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS IN LIFE!!!11!!11" crowd. 

Comment 06 May 2015

Or, you know, maybe he decided that he didn't want to go to a school that didn't offer the major that he wanted. 

Petroleum engineering is one hell of a major, and WVU has one of the best programs for that in the nation. Let's ditch this "he didn't want to win championships" bullshit. Dude is setting himself up *very* well for life after football. And playing alongside his brother would be great for him and his whole family.
