Yes. "Obnoxious Alabama fan" is a shining exemplar of a pleonasm.
Too soon to go to mgoblow and taste the tears?
Still chuckling at "I honestly don't know much, if anything, about Michael Wiley since he is overshadowed by some legendary running backs in Buckeyes history."
A small sampling of Michael Wiley career factoids:
The first three times he touched the ball in a college game (against Rice University as a true freshman) he scored; on a 49 yard reverse and on TD receptions of 51 and 60 yards.
He played four seasons for the Buckeyes but was a starter for only two years (22 starts). Notwithstanding that handicap, he amassed 4,194 all purpose yards with 2,951 rushing yards. He had 10 100 yard rushing games.
As a passer he went 10 of 11 for 225 yards and 2 TDs.
He led off the scoring in the 1998 game against ttun (a real unicorn game for Coach Cooper, winning 31-16) with a 53 yard score early in the first quarter on a simple and perfectly blocked counter play.
I really enjoyed watching that man play ball. I guess he is that guy who gets forgotten, but not by those of us lucky enough to have seen him play.
I can hear the voice of Curt Gowdy from the opening kickoff of that Rose Bowl: "Tackle by William Pollitt." He was a good prosecutor and a good judge. Last time I saw him was at one of his regular hangouts, Cementos on W Henderson Road. He was a great guy and he will be missed.
Vicious. And delicious.
You may have fixed one typo in the title, now how about fixing "annoited" by turning it into "anointed"?
Ah man. He was a genius. Some of the most haunting film scores ever. Still reveling in the score to The Mission, all these years later.
Gotta be Kirk Ferentz, the greatest coach in B1G history.
(Do I gotta put the sarcasm symbol at the end of that, or is it implied strongly enough as it stands?)
Sheeeeeeit. I already tell folks I'm from Comeblowus.
What he said. Times ten. ANY "analysis" of greatest that does not include this defensive backfield is so fundamentally flawed that it cannot be taken seriously.
and they probably couldn't do the same in B1G land.
The United States Constitution prohibits the SEC from playing football north of the Mason-Dixon Line and west of the Pecos but does not concomitantly prohibit it from recruiting nationally.
Ohio lawyers are governed by the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct adopted and promulgated by the Ohio Supreme Court. Prof. Cond. Rule 1.6 regulates an attorney's duty of confidentiality and generally prohibits disclosure of information relating to the representation of a client.
Still trying to get my head around the title. Did Mr. Spielman's effort confer upon him unsung hero status or has it become fabled? Because it can't be both. I personally consider it the latter.
Very in depth. Very thorough. But one question remains unanswered:
Where is Herbie in this debate?
I mean c'mon, dude has an award, nay awards, named for him. Right?
Mmmm. Know what sounds good? Beer-battered fish followed by a jelly donut . . . wait for it . . . sandwich.
Probably so Greta. But watch out for the double dippers. Those sonsabitches are still out there, and toothpick or not, they will dip, bite and dip again.
So . . . I have to stop sifting through the archives to downvote every single thing he has ever posted then?
Corn dogs fall squarely into the "food on a stick" category. See, e.g. your kabobs, your satays, and candy apples. Some may argue that there is precedent for blurring the line of demarcation between the sandwich family and the food on a stick genre, by the well established practice of serving quartered club sandwiches with giant toothpicks jammed into the quartered sections.
Such people are cretinous barbarians at best & blathering buttnuggets at worst, and are to be avoided at all costs.
But only in the PL.
Oh. Is that a thing? Uhhhhh . . . sorry Alum.
I got ya buddy.
Noice. And nice timing as well. Kudos.
Welcome aboard Brohio. The Premium Lounge Bar & Grille is a mere three blocks away. Be a good lad & fetch me another Guinness. And while you are there, might as well pick me up another Pop-Tart sandwich. That's a good lad, now off with ya.
Request for leave denied.
The M.P.s have been dispatched.
Please be advised that the Provost Marshall has taken a personal interest in this case.
You buy Pop-Tarts and leave them in plain sight so you don't have to try and hide the Toaster Strudel.
