Hey Tiger, can you weigh in on this issue? The first 45 comments of yours in this thread don’t really give us a firm grasp on your opinion on this matter lol
Brohio Sr. played a little bit with the Goaldiggers. Never got in a game but he was on the team for a bit.
Amazing childhood memories with these dudes. Also can we all agree this is bar none the worst logo in professional sports history? I mean there are other teams that chased fads and made some serious missteps, but at least they were artistically sound. This logo looks like the first day I discovered the line tool in Microsoft Paint in my 2nd grade computer class. Just take a minute to look at that "O" in Storm. A full 1/3 narrower than the other letters. This was APPROVED. I still stare at this pile of shit in awe.
Game winning touchdown in the Toy Bowl when I was in 8th grade. The Toy Bowl was the championship game for CYO teams in Toledo and it was played at the Glass Bowl. I was at Blessed Sacrament playing against St Catherine's. I only lost 1 game my 4 years of youth football and it was the Toy Bowl in 7th grade where we got destroyed by Christ the King. So this game meant everything to us. Last time we would all play together. Game is incredibly close. Close game. Our coach started splitting our star RB out for some late game passing and the safety started cheating to his side pre-snap every time. Coach dials my number for a post route to the endzone and I was so wide open I could have done a cartwheel. Snagged it. We win. I went on to an extremely mediocre high school football career lol

"Welp, the usual suspects are all in here"
Nuke coming in 5,4,3,2......
Old NFL Overtime stats: More than 25% of teams that lost the coin toss never touched the ball. Since 1994, the team that won the overtime coin toss won the game 34.4 percent of the time on the first possession, and have won about 60% of the time total. How that large of a probability difference is more fair to you guys than equal chances for both teams from the exact same spot on the field is beyond me, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.
If I was ok with ties, I'd be into the whole qtr, but I'm not. Adding almost an hour to the game and it still producing a tie would drive me insane
1. The One Shell Helmet rule in the NFL. Literally no reason for it. The inner lining of modern helmets is removable and has been since the early 2000s and I'd argue using the broken-in lining with a new outer shell every game was statistically safer than using a shell that has already taken heavy impact throughout the season. It's a vanity rule of the NFL to make stupid people think the league is being safer. Luckily this is rumored to be going away in 2021
2. NFL Overtime. I'm dumbfounded it has taken this long to adopt the college overtime rules which are perfect and provide a statistically even probability of winning to both teams. Yet here we are.
3. NFL Uniform change rules. The Rams had to play 3 full seasons in mismatched uniforms because of this stupid rule. The Browns were trapped in their mistakes for 5 full seasons I believe. Just so stupid.
4. Squib kicking. Oh we're up by 3 points with 30 seconds? Let's think about this. We definitely don't want the other team to return the kick which happens maybe once every 1,500 kicks...so let's just give them the ball at their own 45 yd line where they only need about 20 yds to be in a position to tie the game.
We got ourselves an old fashioned GRAPH-OFF going here, boys. May the best man win
I think you could put the ghost of bear bryant and knute rockne at HC for Michigan and they are still not beating us for some time
Ohio State was 25-3 in Day's two seasons as Urban’s OC
Gattis is 23-5 in his last 2 seasons as an OC with a National Championship appearance. We're definitely not talking a night and Day difference. Like what I did there? It's a very low risk hire. You could pay him a top 20 salary (unlike trying to grab a Fleck or Campbell which they would certainly need to be in the top 5 area in terms of NCAA HC salaries.) And he is unproven so he gets a much shorter leash. Lose to Ohio State 2 or 3 times? You're gone. You go after a Chris Peterson or someone like that, you're in the same boat as they are with Harbaugh. He's been blown out in most of his big games, he cant beat their rivals, but now they are trapped. They're in a position where they can't fire Harbaugh yet. You could fire Gattis in year 3 with an identical record as JH. It keeps your fanbase content at the very least to weather the storm during such a down period of the coaching market
I personally think they will hire from within...aka Josh Gattis. I think that if they fire Harbaugh, they will do it after a loss to OSU, they will slide Gattis in with an interim role for the bowl game and then give him the HC tag a bit down the line as the players rally around him (ie Ed Orgeron, Mario Cristobal.) There are no "names" out there like Harbaugh. There are no Michigan Men out there. So any outsider is immediately under the microscope. The fanbase loves Gattis, especially lately since he's the only coach that shows any emotion regarding beating Ohio State. There would definitely be some of their base saying "He's not ready" but I dont think a majority would be angry about the hire like they would if Michigan rolled the dice on an outsider without a sexy name. Would be very easy to fire him if he had 2 OSU losses in a row. Makes a lot of sense to me
Very surprised Kavinsky didnt make your list. He's usually the gateway drug to this kind of stuff
I managed a Goth electronic band for a fun passion project for a few years. They got decently big and we toured/played with a lot of these synthwave acts. Always pretty fun shows.
2 of the 3 people you’re referring to aren’t on this website anymore lol. If you’re comfortable sitting on your hands while people sprinkle racist trash all over this site like SaltBae, that’s fine. I’m not. No judgement on you and from what I remember you and I have had some nice interactions and I hope they continue. But a line in the sand has been drawn and although I have the self awareness to know that what I’m saying won’t change these people, but if I can make anyone think twice about posting it to the site I visit every day and pay for the privilege to do so, forgive me, but I’m gonna try. And to your point about Mods policing, none of my comments have gone grey, I’ve not had a single comment removed for policy and to state the incredibly obvious, I’m still here. They’re not....with the inexplicable exception of Mr. Cajun here whose comment history reads like a laundry list of David Duke quotes.
Do you mean me or our Acadian friend with a dozen "Comment removed for violating the site's commenting policy" in his history that spelled out every racial slur in the Asian playbook in his previous comment and still has the unbelievably still undeleted yarn about "white people not being the only race that owned slaves" as a defense of the current climate?
If you have cable, BTN has app or you can just login with your cable provider credentials on their site, and they have the game with all the stoppages cut out called “Football in 60”. It’s free you just need to login with your cable provider login. If you don’t have a cable login because you’ve cut the cord, just use your parents’ login I heard that works :)
Well I’ll be damned. What a coincidence! Out of all the threads and all the blank space on the internet, he decided to have his existential pondering of why saying “redneck” is ok in the only thread at the time regarding a Utah coaches Use of a racial slur against blacks. It’s totally not because he was trying to equate the 2 words in question. It’s totally not because gaslighting racists like Martin and yourself just can’t give out a milligram of empathy to realize what this word has done to their race. In related news, the buffoon scumbag cockroach Martin is gone like a fart in the wind and judging by this line of continued racial tightrope walking you seem to be enjoying, you’re sure to follow soon.
Scumbag CEO exposed AND now my insufferable #FitFam friends won’t be able to say the word CrossFit every 20 mins? I’m all in
Skipped class my freshman year of HS to go buy Farmhouse at Media Play the day it came out. I wouldn't say I'm a fanatic but my dad has been a white collar deadhead my entire life so I've seen/been to it all.
West siyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeed. Yessir I am here in LA. Just bought a house with my girl in November so I will be stuck here paying the damn thing off the rest of my natural life lol
For what it’s worth Poppy, my lady likes to comb through my posts on here so she can make fun of me and she became aware of your health situation and from time to time she will sincerely ask “How is Calpoppy? Is he ok?” I tell her yep. He’s still the worst Mod on 11w. Jk. We’re all pulling for you man!
Wait there has been a premium forum lounge this whole time?!?!
No Mods, don't delete his comments. Expose them. People need to read what he's writing so when Cajunbuckeye is weighing in on the 2020 depth chart and other frivolous football banter, they're aware they're chatting with a scumbag. Stop letting these people hide behind blocked comments and anonymous screen names.
