An extant Brooks makes this team a formidable foe come tourney time.

I think that's a joke about that movie where they sent oil drillers to space to drill a hole in an asteroid and then detonated a nuke in the middle of it.
There are lots of careers in the space industry that don't involve physics or engineering. A major one at my company is Procurement/Supplier Management. We buy tons of stuff and then assemble it here.

Nah, it’s just a glitch in the Matrix. You are both just human duracells.

Grey sidelines you say? Maybe they got a deal on surplus wood from Minnesota.
|03/10/2019 - 12:00am||The refs kept Sparty in the…||
The refs kept Sparty in the game in the first half and then gave it to them on a silver platter in the second.
At least Eli Brooks showed he has a pulse. He was the only one aggressively going after rebounds. 3 of our normally better rebounders either had foul trouble or didn’t play due to injury.
Allowing State to make it a 6 point game with Cassius on the bench with fouls was the difference. A team with a killer instinct stretches that 10 point lead to 18. But Loyer fell down and they called a foul on Michigan. That about sums up this game.
Oh yeah, forgot one thing: fuck Izzo.
|03/08/2019 - 7:22pm||$50K and an LSU degree or a…||
$50K and an LSU degree or a Michigan degree? I know what I would choose. My friend is paying $80K/year for his daughter to attend Northeastern. Let’s not pretend a full-cost of attendance scholarship to the University of Michigan is worthless, even to a scholar-athlete (emphasis on athlete.)
|03/07/2019 - 7:00pm||Eli has regressed. He looks…||
Eli has regressed. He looks like he is playing with zero confidence. He is passing up open shots and when he does shoot, he’s tentative. There’s no fluidity to his shot leading to misses that aren’t even close.
|03/07/2019 - 11:05am||The Clippers are 23-4 in…||
The Clippers are 23-4 in their last 27 games against the Lakers, and the Lakers are going to miss the playoffs WITH LeBron. Screw the Lakers.

I think they have gotten stuck trying to figure out how to pronounce Mazzccua.
|03/06/2019 - 12:12am||It did not change trajectory…||
It did not change trajectory. You could draw a straight line from the in-bounder through the ball’s path. I wish people, especially Crispin, understood what parallax is.
And then the other idiot announcer said it hit the Gopher’s hand when that was impossible because it was on the other side of the Boiler player’s head. The announcers just wanted Purdue to get the ball because that makes for a better end of game scenario.

Sounds like he read the EW article XM linked to.

DJ Carstensen, aka Lurch, just swallowed his whistle and fucked PSU in the ass. What a horrible, horrible ref.
|03/02/2019 - 2:03pm||During the halftime…||
During the halftime interview with Izzo, an IU fan held up a sign behind him saying, “SIT DOWN SHUT UP.” My sentiments exactly. I took a photo, but I’ve given up trying to post photos here.
|03/01/2019 - 12:24pm||The difference between …||
The difference between "recorded" and "pre-recorded" is this: if something is being recorded, it could be happening live, so you can call in to the show. Just be careful what you say because the show is being recorded, so if you say something stupid, it's recorded for posterity. If the show is "pre-recorded," you can't call in because it's already been recorded.
Sorry, I had to get that off my chest. That's bothered me every time I hear him say that on these podcast intros.

I prefer old school insults like “have another donut you fat pig.”
|02/25/2019 - 9:01pm||He said “many times,” not …||
He said “many times,” not “most times” or “more often than not,” and provided examples to prove his point. So he was in fact telling the truth. You are such a miserable fuck that you don’t understand that. Please respond to me and prove you are the liar, Shawn Maizen.
|02/25/2019 - 4:41pm||Officials are human and that…||
Officials are human and that’s the problem. They make mistakes, hold grudges and let their personal biases get in the way. I, for one, welcome our robotic official overlords. My brother, who umpired little league baseball, said he thinks MLB should adopt an electronic, automated strike zone. That opened my eyes, but I think he’s right.

My mom is 4’ 11”. I’m pretty sure she’s taller than Loyer.

I am shocked that the elite fullback recruits aren’t lining up to play for Harbaugh.
|02/22/2019 - 9:51am||And we play at a slow pace…||
And we play at a slow pace. It’s not like we’re running up and down the court every possession. The way we play, it’s more like playing four rounds of golf in four days. It’s doable.
I am more surprised by the apparent lack of scouting. The token 1-2-2 press completely took us out of our offense a few games ago, but I haven’t seen it used against us again. Minny pressed us a little late in the game, but it was too little too late.

As the old saying goes, you can’t have your helmet cake and eat it too.
|02/21/2019 - 4:33pm||There was one elderly lady…||
There was one elderly lady in my neighborhood who would yell the equivalent of “get off of my lawn.” She lived in a condo and had no lawn. We were all scared shitless of her and never ventured anywhere near her lawn. One time, a football ended up going over her back fence. We sorrowfully said goodbye to that ball and found a new game to play.
|02/21/2019 - 10:04am||Bilas did remind us every…||
Bilas did remind us every couple minutes of the injury. Freaking Duke homer. How is he allowed to work their games? I mean, ESPN has so much integrity that they won’t let Herbstreit predict games he is working.
I hope this game becomes known as the start of “The Curse of Obama” a la the Cubs and the Billy Goat and Duke goes at least 100 years before winning again.
|02/21/2019 - 9:51am||I’m pretty sure SDSU’s…||
I’m pretty sure SDSU’s current head coach is former Michigan assistant coach Brian Dutcher. He is more directly responsible for the outcome than Hoke.

Right this moment? Styx!
The gig is up, they finally found me...
To answer the question, though, I have recently started listening to Christian rock. I never thought I would say that. I would have guessed I would start listening to country before Christian rock. There’s a group out of Australia called Hillsong Worship that is really good. Their music is so Goddamn inspirational.

I coached in a youth basketball league for four seasons. One year, before the season started, they invited us volunteer coaches to attend the local high school basketball practice so we could see how it’s done. That team had 10 coaches/volunteers running drills. Everyone was busy doing something useful. I was amazed.

7-year old me was at that Rose Bowl. I cried at the end. Freaking Warren Moon.

Teske had the ball under the basket and a PSU guy whacked him in the back of the head. The announcers after reviewing the play, said, 'yeah, he got the ball.' BUT HE ALSO CAME THROUGH TESKE'S HEAD TO GET THERE!!! ARGHHHHH!!!

To me, it looked like he was holding up 3 fingers, referring to PSU’s three fouls. Refs don’t like it when you point out their incompetence.

Thank you for the calm, rational, measured response to my snarky comment. I learned something new today.
I clicked the link and saw that Ben Livshits is their chief scientist. That’s good enough for me.

Leaping Lanny Poffo was my favorite wrestler as a child. I think that says a lot about me, very little of which is good.

The problem with Happ is that he can't play when pink. Teske gets the blood flowing, turns pink and his game doesn't suffer. I really don't think Teske is human. He's an evolved species.

Seems not quite right to have Muppets after a home win against a lower ranked team, but if they can rush the court after beating us at their place, we sure as hell can Muppet their ass (with Gonzo’s snout) after beating them at our place.
|02/09/2019 - 2:13pm||Happ is overrated. Teske is…||
Happ is overrated. Teske is underrated.
It’s a good thing Matthews didn’t listen to me and focus on D and rebounds. Another Beilein masterpiece. He figures out the match-ups and takes advantage. Iggy struggles against Happ, OK, have Matthews abuse Flopsconsin’s unathletic wing defenders.
Is it wrong that I want Muppets for this game because I hate Wisconin basketball?
