I'm just gonna be real blunt on this: 

who the F*ck cares what the NCAA says.  

Rule him inelligible - I'm still suiting him up and putting him on the field.  And I'm point blank ignoring any reprecussions you try to impose on me.

Whatever man - I'm just trying to give some honest feedback. Truly appreciate the work you all do here for I'm assuming no pay - but it's pretty disheartening to see honest questions and criticisms responded to like this by the mods.

Thank you - like cops can't catch everyone speeding, we can't catch every out of bounds comment.

THERE IS LITERALLY SOMEONE SPEEDING ABOVE ME IN THIS THREAD.  He literally said he was only making the comment to "rile people up."  

That's the whole reason I'm commenting on it.  If my joke was political enough for a day ban - how on Earth is that not??  

I wasn't "dwelling" on it when I commented here first.  I was pointing out that if you're shooting for even enforcement here is a perfect example -the mod saw the comment, responded to it, and let it go.  

Apparently the cop didn't feel like paperwork today.

My comment wasn’t political at all, so..

Not much - except it pretty blatantly pointed out political bias with a network.  

To be clear - I don't think your comment (or mine) was worthy of a ban.  But I made a joke, with no political context, that someone in the Trump admin (leaving name out here) was probably secretly Sir Yacht - and I was banned simply for saying the persons name.  

And I get that people have bad days and good days - but when I complained, 3-4 mods basically said that my ban was the correct call, including at least one in this thread now.  

I know people aren't perfect - that's why I'm drawing attention to this.

Haha I’ve never seen a comment get so many downvotes that quick! I love getting people on this site all riled up..

when is his OAN interview? 

I would just like to point out that I was given a day ban and had my comment removed by a MOD for a lot less than this in the politics-talk area.  I complained about uneven enforcement and was widely attacked.  Yet - here we are.

On it's face I agree with this - we shouldn't be taking those tests from healthcare workers and retirement homes and etc.  

But the whole point was the Big Ten should have had THEIR OWN tests lined up months ago.  The White House offering them (and trust me I'm not fan of the WH) was taking away the facade of an excuse "oh you need tests, here ya go!"  ... When in reality we are apparently the only conference that can't line them up.  

Absolute joke.

Reaper from I think last years haul.  

I infuse Tequila too...  You could call it human-draino.  I've never met someone who had a normal bowel movement after drinking the one with the Reaper pepper in it.

I grow hot peppers, including the Carolina Reaper.  I make a Chili I call hot donkey.  

I've twice won hottest chili unanimously at Chili Cook Offs.

Not bad if you can get passed the heat too - the trick is using coconut milk in place of some of the water.

Deace is good but he drives me nuts if you try to listen to him regularly.  

He lets his day job (he's a politics talk show host) leak into his sports show - and aside from not being politically aligned with him he starts to sound like the talking heads (regardless of your politics) that I was trying to get away from when I came to sports in the first place.  

On top of all that he's a skunk fan.  

BUT - if you can get past that, or deal with it for a few minutes - dude knows his football and has enough connections to know a bit of the insider stuff at UM and the Big Ten in general.

Honestly that scenario is a long time coming.  The only reason a lot of these kids are here is because there is no minor league option available to them.  That's not to say they don't love Ohio State (or whatever school they're at) or want an education - but point blank their #1 priority is to get to the NFL and get paid.  I've always been of the opinion that if there were a viable minor league route you would see a hefty chunk of the top 50 or so recruits every year go that way instead of college.  

What we've proven now is that the NFL is happy to take these kids with a much shorter highlight reel than previously thought.  If your # 1 concern is getting to the league then why on Earth wouldn't you opt out?  Not like you're cashing a check right now.

These gender reveal parties are stupid. When my wife was pregnant I told my family if we have a gender reveal party - don't come.. because we're gonna slice the cake open and fucking spiders are gonna pour out.

I took Iowa State on the moneyline in a parlay bet.  

Thank youuuuu Cyclones.  

Comment 12 Sep 2020

I live out in Philly and we made good friends with a few Husker fans - have been to a lot of their game day parties out here and vice versa, and gone once each to a game in Lincoln and one in Columbus.  

Their fan base in general is easily the best in the Big Ten (better than ours IMO).  Very welcoming, hardly an asshole among the bunch.  The best thing you could do for them is just not be an asshole to them.  

Comment 11 Sep 2020

Birm was predicting that many players would opt out - he was not working off of any rumor or info he had.  

He's not wrong that a lot probably will opt out if we don't play - but the way you have this written suggests they're about to announce it tomorrow or something.
