I said it in the past and will say it again, UF has the best defensive line in college football.

adrian on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 12:44 AM

Honestly about the game, i freaking hate OSU and I honestly can't stand the Gators. I am glad that the SEC won the national championship.

I would love to see Florida play LSU in a rematch. ONE MORE GAME!

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 12:50 AM

So MTV's "2-A-Days" are doing the same thing, but with basketball and they have chosen Kentucky to film at. They are filming Etown (centering around Stephon Pettigrew) and PRP simultaneously and will choose which one based on the better storyline.

Phil on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 12:54 AM

New rumor of the night is that Bush is coming back and will announce this tomorrow or in the immediate future. Brohm family has also apparently talked with Kragthorpe and liked what they heard. Of course this is all internet rumors but it does come from someone who does generally have good sources as compared to 99% of all the other shit out there.

adrian on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 12:56 AM

If you were Bush would you stay or go?

Phil on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 12:59 AM

Well, who knows how Bush's leg is healing or what he's hearing from the NFL. As a bills fan I'd be a little upset in them taking Bush with a higher than a 4th round draft pick. He's injured, has a poor running style and hasn't proven himself very durable. Plus I think the new trend is running back by committee anyways.

But if some team was dumb enough to pay me with my busted as leg to come play for them with guaranteed money? You bet your ass I'd be there and wouldn't take my chances with a first year coach and a questionable knee...

adrian on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 1:13 AM

In espn's college bowl mania, I was 18-14 in the bowl game picks (terrible i know). I was the only person out of the 19 people in my group that picked Florida to beat The Ohio State Buckeyes.

Jerome on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 8:36 AM

I went to Kroger this morning for some provisions. Old black lady is at the self checkout kiosk. Usually, I observe that people of her particular demographic need some help working the computer. But this lady - not only was she a pro, but she took it to a whole new level of crazy. I wish I could make up shit like this 'cause if I wasn't there to see and hear it, I wouldn't have believed it myself:

Kiosk: Please scan your Kroger plus card. If you don't have a Kroger plus card, please scan your first item.
Old Black Lady: Here you go, baby.
Kiosk: Welcome, Kroger customer.
Old Black Lady: Well, thank you. Aren't you so sweet?
(scans item)
K: Please place the item in the bag.
OBL: I'll do that
(continues scanning items, and then has something that needs weighed like fruit)
K: Please enter the label number or press "no label"
OBL: Here's the label for you. Now make sure you get me that sale price, you hear?
K: Please place the item on the scanner and wait.
OBL: Can't wait forever, baby. I gots to get to work.
K: Please place the item in the bag.
OBL: Uh-huh. Mm-hmm.
K: Do you have any coupons?
OBL: Not today, baby. I didn't get to the paper yet.
K: Please select your method of payment and touch the screen where indicated.
OBL: Cash today.
K: Please place the coins into the coin accepter before placing the bills in the bill acceptor.
OBL: That's 5 and 10 and 5 and ... 1 and 1.
K: Thank you. Please take your change and your receipt. Thank your for shopping at Kroger.
OBL: You're welcome. I'll see you next week.

The whole time, I stood there pretending to double-check and triple-check my receipt so I wouldn't miss the fun. Anyway, the OBL leaves and passes the cashier without even acknowledging she was there. I look at the cashier and she looks like she's about to burst trying to contain her laughter. Great start to a morning for me.

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 9:34 AM

Go SEC!

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 9:43 AM

The only way Bush should go is if he is 100% healed for the draft combine. I don't think that he will be, therefore, he will probably be back.

I am more interested as to what Keenan Burton will do, because according to his dad he is 50/50. I hope he comes back, so Woodson can pass to him, but Keenan is a combine freak and when the NFL realizes they have a 6'1 or 6'2" wide receiver who led the SEC in receiving TDs, had over a 1000 yards receiving, runs a low 4.4 40 and has incredible hands and leaping ability....he might go first 3 rounds. Just depends what other WRs are coming out. I know C Johnson is coming out, does anyone know the status of D Jarret?

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 9:55 AM

brohm should go, bush should stay, burton should stay. phil - where did u see those internet rumors about brohm being impressed w/ kragthorpe? just outta curiosity.

Church on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 9:56 AM

Wes, no word on Jarrett. If he comes out, Burton should definitely stay. Kiper has Johnson as the number 1 pick.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 9:59 AM

This quote says it all.

"Honestly, we've played a lot better teams than them," Moss said. "I could name four or five teams in the SEC that could probably compete with them and play the same type of game we did against them."

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:00 AM

I think he is getting his info from the Louisville webboard.

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:01 AM

that's a great quote, and for the record, UK played Florida much tougher than OSU did. UK for BCS in 07 baby

Phil on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:04 AM

One of the posters on Inside the Ville. He's been posting on there forever (at least 3 years) and he only speaks when he has something to say. All he'd say is that the Brohm family was impressed with Kragthorpe and that Bush.

As to Jarrett, most believe he, Sidney Rice and Mecheum (don't know how to spell his name, the WR from UT) will both be leaving. I have yet to see Burton's name even mentioned on any draft sites. The only mention of him being in the draft seem to be newspaper articles here in the state wondering if he'll go. I think he's a great receiver and love the bills to grab him, but if he does go pro I think they'd be able to pick him up in the 6th or 7th round...

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:06 AM

Yeah, that is what naysayers say, but wait till the combine starts. Burton is a combine freak and once those numbers are posted his stock will rise.

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:07 AM

Bush is expected to announce whether he will enter the NFL draft or return next fall at an 11:30 a.m. ET press conference.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:07 AM

Just like the UK tackle (Robertson) a few years ago, went from a nobody to the #3 pick in the first round.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:11 AM

Burton is waiting to get word back from the NFL analysts. If he is taken in the first day (first 3 rounds) he is gone.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:19 AM

Ron Caragher is leaving UK as an assistant to take the head coaching job at University of San Diego.

http://www.kentucky.com/mld/kentuck...ky/16415518.htm

What really hurts is he is the recruiting coordinator for UK and has managed some pretty good classes.

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:21 AM

Lard
The New York Giants inserted backup quarter(got)back Jared Lorenzen into the game twice on third-and-short. Once he picked up the first down on a sneak, and the other time he called a timeout. Presumably to get a sandwich.

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page...ge=gallo/070108

Phil on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:28 AM

All I'm saying is that I just spent the past 15 minutes trying to find Keenan Burton's name even mentioned by someone outside the state of Kentucky in terms of the draft. I found one mention so far and that was some guy on a message board saying he'll be the 62nd best WR in NEXT years draft. Therefor I think he'll be staying which is good for Kentucky because I think he'll prove to be a top 10 receiver next year.

I don't know how that's being a naysayer. No one is even talking about the guy. They are nonsayers.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:29 AM

Final AP poll.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/rankingsindex

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:32 AM

Phil - I wasn't saying you were a naysayer....I am calling the people who are "analysts" who rank these guys naysayers. Most have never seen him play, therefore, don't rank him....and the fact he plays for Kentucky hurts as well. Or the fact that he was hurt his freshman and sophomore years so he didn't play 100% healthy hurt too. I am just saying he is a solid pro-pick, and he will prove it again like he always does.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:35 AM

Sorry just putting in my $0.02 on something that I hope I don't have to worry about. I want my offense to be back next year. Woodson and Burton and Little oh boy!

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:36 AM

the worst that happened to burton was his buddy bush going down b/c it made him think if it can happen to bush, it can happen to him if he stays, so he's probably looking for someone to tell him he'll go in the first couple rounds, but i still think it's a mistake b/c he'll be most likely a consensus first round pick next year in a draft a lot lighter in WR's than this year's

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 10:40 AM

Yeah I agree with that completely Douglas. I hope he gets his degree because after his NFL playing days are over, I'd like to see him back at UK working for the university either as AD or a coach.

Nice article posted by Douglas with the A-Z of NFL Wildcard Weekend. This one made me chuckle:

Von Oelhoffen
The Jets signed Kimo Von Oelhoffen to a three-year, $9.2 million contract in the offseason. Did he think they paid him all that money simply to bang into the opposing team's offensive line play after play and make a few tackles? No. He was brought in to take out Brady's knees in the playoffs. And he failed.

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 11:01 AM

So on to B-ball, UK received less votes than IU for the coaches' poll top 25....how the fuck is this possible? Tougher schedule, comparable record, only losses are to top 20 teams, including the current #1 and #3, what the fuck? Oh well, let 'em fly under the radar longer, keeps the bull's eye off their chest

Here is an interesting comment from UK's Jeff Sheppard.

Jeff Sheppard was on the BBL, and without intending to debunked the long standing myth that the '98 team started winning by doing things Pitino's way. Sheppard said the season turned for the '98 squad when the team met and decided to completely buy into Tubby's system and do the things that Coach wanted them to do.

Shep went on to say that the team didn't care who scored, and didn't even pay that close attention to the scoreboards, which enabled them to come back and win a number of games down the stretch.

douglas on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 12:10 PM

i heard that last night on tubby's call-in show, sheppard had called in from his cell and was pulled over on the highway when he was on-air, but i did hear him say that

The silver surfer is a good guy, although he is introduced as the herald of galactus, who wants to consume the life energy of earth.

Phil on Tuesday, January 09, 2007 at 5:12 PM

I think most people think that the Bolen transfer thing is quite silly and the subject was dismissed by most people earlier today. Why he'd transfer to Michigan State because of a new coach would be a complete mystery. One, Michigan State doesn't even have a coach. If he was leaving because of the coaching change here going to Michigan State sure doesn't make sense. The other problem is that he transfered to Louisville so he'd have to sit out a year and lose a year of eligibility if he transfer again.

But the Michigan State rivals site seems to think its a possibility so who knows. Maybe Bolen's girlfriend moved to Michigan.

But my guess is that the MSU site got it wrong earlier today and maybe confused Bolen with Troy Pascley. The last I read about it was three or four hours ago so they might have already retracted it.

Mel Kiper was asked about Keenan Burton.

Matt, Louisville, KY: Mel, with all the stud WR coming out this year, would it be smart for a guy who had a breakout year such as Kentuckys Keenan Burton to try to do the same? Where would you project a guy like this? Thanks Mel.


Quote:
Mel Kiper: (1:19 PM ET ) He's a very impressive player. But he should go another year in college. The Junior class is very talented, with Sweed, Doucet, DJ Hall, Gonzalez, to go along with the guys who left early. So if you put him in that grouping he is just as good as anyone in that group. He gets lost in the conversation but he is very good, and another year at KY could really help him.

I agree wtih Mel completely here, until he does the combine. Then his stock rises.

Here's something to amuse yourself with. Last week someone was wondering if anyone had a screen shot of a couple of attractive females during the Louisville game (http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k.../DCP_0872-1.jpg).

The girls from the picture have found the thread (http://mb21.scout.com/flouisvillefr...81&stop=100) and have begun posting more pictures of themselves, and the dirty old men are now in some way bidding on dates from them...

Jay on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 2:48 PM

So, I just asked that girl out for this weekend. We'll see how it goes. I'm actually expecting a complete disaster, (i.e. "I'm so glad we're friends"). Anyway, here's hoping it turns out better than last time. *takes a shot of tequila*

Phil on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 3:30 PM

Louisville also plays at NC State and vs MTSU out of conference. Vandy was originally on the schedule but Vandy backed out of the game.

Big East conference games:
Pitt, Rutger and Syracuse at home
WVU, Cinci, USF and UConn on the road

Church on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 3:36 PM

Thanks Phil. Looks like they may end up at 9-2 or 8-3 next year. They will have trouble with USF, WVU, and UK

douglas on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 4:45 PM

that really would suck for UL if they're ranked that low b/c rankings at the beginning of the season do have a big effect b/c it'd be tough to advance 25 spots during the short season

adrian on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 5:15 PM

Church, when you wrote UK did you mean the University of Kansas. Surely to God you were not talking about The University of Kentucky.

Phil on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 5:19 PM

Mark Schlabach did predict Louisville playing in the Orange Bowl (albeit vs FSU) last year, but who knows. With his assumptions (although many are incorrect) I don't think it is too far fetched. Losing your coach, your QB, 95% of your receptions and your anchors on defense is pretty tough to overcome. But Harry and Mario have both said they are coming back and Brohm seems to be 50/50 (current rumor is that it rests on if Jeff decides to go elsewhere). Most of the defensive players that are leaving are being filled with 3-5 star guys so while there will be a drop off it's not like they are having open tryouts for the damn spots.

Who knows. It should be interesting.

adrian on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 5:39 PM

Here are the top five teams next year in my humble opinion...

1. Southern Cal - When Petey Carrol says it is the fastest defense he has ever had I with that recruiting class they have, it is a no brainer they are number 1. Marc Tyler ... thats all I have to say.

2. Da Wolverines - I can't stand the Big Ten and they sure took an ass pounding from USC, but with the people returning they should be a strong candidate for the Big Ten Champions.

3. West Virginia - If white and slaton stay in college, then WVU will probably win the Big East title. They are deserving of a top 5 ranking.

4. The Gators - The gators should be pretty dominant in the SEC. I am anxious to see how they fair against LSU in Baton Rouge.

5. The Pigs - Arkansas is a toss up for me but with the Dynamic Duo at the running back position, they should be a fun team to watch play. If they can stack up their defense, then they should make a run for the SEC title.

Cuban on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 5:52 PM

Adrian,

I would probably switch The Gators and WV, also I am going to put Texas in the 5 hole b/c Colt and Sneed are both returning.
Plus, Texas usually has good recruiting classes combined with a weaker schedule then the Pigs.

Cuban on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 5:53 PM

LSU is also not a bad choice for top 5

Barry on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 6:11 PM

you know i'm not gonna argue that Cuban. As long as our whole damn coaching staff doesn't leave.

Cuban on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 8:49 PM

I'm just Glad the Noles got Jimbo.

Wes, basically what it consists of is two girls (one blonde and one brunette) who were briefly shown on tv during the 4th quarter of the Orange Bowl. One poster put up a screen shot of the girl. Appearantly her boyfriend or something saw the post and the girls started putting up various pictures of themselves. They are actually pretty good looking.

Jay on Thursday, January 11, 2007 at 7:53 AM

Yeah, I looked at the picture phil posted. They were not bad.

Church on Thursday, January 11, 2007 at 8:09 AM

Adrian, I actually did mean UK since Woodson is continuing to improve, and presupposing Burton returns, they will be tough and could challenge Tennessee and Georgia for second in the SEC East

Top Five for Next Year

1. Florida- no brainer. This years team was mainly freshman and seniors and with a good recruiting class, they will be good. If they find a reliable running back, they will be scary good

2. Texas- Colt McCoy and Jamal Charles are coming back and they were two plays away from contening for the BCS this year. The early game at Ohio State may determine how for real this team is.

3. USC- They return most of their talent and the QB is starting to come into his own, not Leinhart or Palmer like, but reputable and may be a dark horse hesiman candidate. Carroll coming back is an immense benefit

4. West Virginia- Slaton, White, and Rodriguez return. They should be loaded and angry. They have USF on the road, which will be their main conference test and U of L at home. Outside chance for the national title game

5. Michigan- Henne and Hart return. Many writers were projecting Michigan as the team to beat before their bowl game. This is a pipe dream pick, because USC made them look like Notre Dame

others
6. Arkansas
7. Texas A & M
8. Wisconsin
9. U of L
10. Rutgers

Hesiman- Darin McFadden Arkansas
Sleeper teams: Texas Tech, San Jose State, Navy
Conference Champs
ACC- Florida State
Big East- West Virginia
Big Ten- Wisconsin or Michigan
Big 12- Texas
C-USA- Houston
MAC- Ohio
Mountain West-TCU
Pac 10- USC
SEC- Flordia
Sun Belt-MTSU
WAC- Boise State

Notre Dame will lost another bowl game next year

She could have been asking to know if she needed to get a sitter for a "official date," r ather than bring him along on a non-official one.

Sometimes it is necessary to backdown when a similar question is asked, and sometimes it is better to go for it. But as we were not there, and that you'll most likely not let most of us meet her....ever, then we have to go by your telling of events.

Phil on Thursday, January 11, 2007 at 2:32 PM

the whole nice guy argument is dumb.

Being nice in no way serves a reproductive purpose.

Women instinctively look for traits that have traits desirable to produce healthy offspring and will allow them to live comfortably be it a nice job or being a big strong guy. And guess what? Nice guys with those qualities already have a girlfriend who is in a totally different league than the chick complaining about dating assholes. So they are stuck dating assholes but at least those assholes could fend off a crazed monkey in the wild if it came down to it.

Nice guys don't finish last they are actually in first place. Here's the hierarchy:

1. Nice guys with desirable traits important for advancement of the species
2. Assholes with desirable traits important for advancement of the species
3. Nice guys who probably shouldn't reproduce
4. Assholes who probably shouldn't reproduce (that's me!)

Basically you have three groups of single people out there. You can assume the nice guys with desirable traits are already off the market or gay. So the nice guys are competing with the assholes for any remaining females.

In response to your question Bigworm, I went on a date with her last weekend and we have hung out since then and I haven't scared her away. I amaze myself.

hey joe, did you know there are a shitload of episodes of "titus" on youtube...yes that's what i've been doing today.

Marc on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 2:38 PM

I love how the LEGO Church has spawned a religious debate at the bottom of its page. I love the internet.

Jay on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 2:54 PM

Joe, what's your secret? I really need to know.

Barry on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 2:55 PM

alcohol

Brock on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 3:04 PM

I noticed that too Marc... what the hell is wrong with people.... on both sides of the issue. Its a freakin' LEGO building... and now its calling into question the existence of God and how Christianity brain-washes people.

I really despise religious debates... mainly because I don't give a rats ass what Joe Schmo down the street believes as long as isn't robbing my damn apartment.

Brent on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 3:49 PM

I just read the debate that was great...Marc, I have two episodes left of 24 Season 1, the plot line with the daughter and mother are exhausting to watch, I wish they would just kill them and get them out of the story, it would be a fuck of a lot better.

Marc on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 4:02 PM

I agree Brent with the daughter and mother plotline analysis. I really enjoyed the show the first season it was out, but believe the seasons since have been much better than the first.

Jerome on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 4:03 PM

If I took the Boba Fett/Wookie hybrid that I built in Star Wars Legos into that church, I'd score SHITLOADS of Lego studs.

Brent on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 4:07 PM

I like it, I especially like how I dont have to wait for another week for an episode, I think I knocked out 12 weeks in two days.

Brent on Friday, January 12, 2007 at 4:18 PM

Phil or Adrian, what is a good free animation program that I can download to make pictures move using flipbook like animation?

Ok, here is some info about my unit....some people told me I should divulge a little info on what we do while I was on leave. Unfortunately due to new administrative decisions, I cannot elaborate on what our role will be on our upcoming deployment. Just know that I am really proud of being a part of this unit and what we do. We have huge shoes to fill, given the amazing accomplishments of the Marines that came before us. Those guys fought in some of the bloodiest battles in the last century and were ALWAYS victorious, no matter what kind of ridiculous odds they faced. (If you want to know more about that read up on the Chosin Resevoir during the Korean War.)

Bigworm on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 11:53 AM

So did Brohm announce for the pros?

I find it odd that Jeff is going to Alabama if his brother is staying?

Phil on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 12:21 PM

Jeff hasn't made any announcement one way or the other. It's him or Applewhite for the QB coach position with his decision to come later today.

Phil on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 12:35 PM

For what it's worth Brohm has apparently been offered the job, but he hasn't accepted it yet. Of course Saban is apparently throwing around CRAZY money for assistant coaches.

Other "rumor" is that Brohm might announce during halftime of today's basketball game but that seems far fetched. I doubt that one is anything more than wishful thinking by someone with an overactive imagination, but all things considered that would be a pretty neat way to announce.

Phil on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 12:40 PM

well, actually according to the Courier it looks like JEFF is going to announce at halftime that he's staying:
http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...ORTS02/70113013

So it looks like that rumor is halfway right I guess

Bigworm on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 4:27 PM

Good for Brohm....I didn't think that Saban would make Jeff an OC, but I could have been wrong.

stew on Sunday, January 14, 2007 at 12:23 PM

Holy hell! I hate those "unintentional drunk" nights. Last night I was just hanging out in my room with a buddy and one of my NCO's snagged me up and whisked me off to the beer store and then to his room where there was an after party for another Marine's batchelor party. It was pretty surreal because I'm sitting in a chair next to a fat blow up doll who is staring at me with her gaping plastic mouth wearing nothing but a bra and thong that was generously donated by one of the strippers. Anyways, I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but suffice it to say it was pretty legendary. Well, I'm off to try and find some gatorade.

Phil on Sunday, January 14, 2007 at 12:25 PM

brent, hockey trade proposed! I seem to have acquired a shitload of centers.

Looks like Brohm's press conference has been put off until tomorrow morning:

Probably not a good sign.

fun fact, i know the girl holding the "kentucky girls love dick" sign, she's the ex-girlfriend of an old friend of mine, who is the guy to the right of the picture (of course cut out), i also know all the guys surrounding her in the picture too, they're all the guys i hang out w/ when i go down to lexington

Jerome on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 11:59 AM

Kentucky girls don't love dick so much as they devour it

douglas on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 1:08 PM

another fun fact, i was at a party at my buddy's house, her ex-boyfriend, my buddy was in the bathroom taking a piss, and i couldn't wait any longer so i barged in and started pissing in the sink. a minute later, while i'm in midstream, the girl holding the 'dick' sign walks in with two of her friends. needless to say, the looks on their faces as they walk in on me pissing in the sink at the same time her boyfriend is pissing in the toilet was fucking priceless. i think they refused to use that bathroom, something about they didn't wanna wash their hands in a soiled sink

Brock on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 1:38 PM

She sounds like an uppity bitch... I mean, at least you used something with a drain... you could have pissed in a garbage can or the floor.

Other useful "toilets" in time of drunken distress include: the bathtub, the drain in the basement floor, a nearby window, or the drain on a refrigerator with an ice-maker.

douglas on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 2:10 PM

or a bitch's mouth

Phil on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 2:20 PM

Fun story: we used to just piss down the drain of some dude's basement in high school when drinking. Some dude was drinking with us and asked where the bathroom was. So we told him just to use the drain.

He took a shit.

douglas on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 2:46 PM

at a party w/ my cousin in high school, who was a crazy fucking football player at st. x, if i ever met anybody in town who knew him, they were all like "oh that crazy fuck that plays football for X" to which i'd reply "yep that one." anyway, goes to the bathroom at a crowded party, there's a line of people outside the only bathroom in the house, he drops trou and proceeds to shit all around the rim of the toilet seat. needless to say, it was quite a scene when he left the bathroom and the next person went in

douglas on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 5:44 PM

this is pitiful guys, i expect more from you guys.

Jay on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 9:45 AM

It's possible. Some chemicals can cause cancer, so it would stand to reason that a small percentage would gain fantastic powers. Plus, you're asian, so that should unlock the dormant space/time power you have.

You know, I always thought that if I got too fat, well, I could always fuck a panda. So you can understand my distress when I came across this:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070116...iland_panda_sex

douglas on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 11:46 AM

i'll tell you what the problem is, i already fucked that female panda with a fury rivaled only by my passion for donkeys. i bent that black and white bitch backward giving her the absolute best lovin' she's ever had, better than that jungle shit she's used to. going back to a boring fat panda isn't gonna' do it for such a hairy temptress such as herself. i love going down on her, when all the hairs cover your face like a warm scarf

Jay on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 12:23 PM

The problem with that panda though, is that she's liable to tell most guys she just wants to be friends. So you stuck giving it to fat panda's. That's why I stick to hot polar bears. They appreciate it a lot more.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 1:18 PM

Damn, I was hoping I would reincarnate as a panda...apparently you have to stay fit to get laid there as well.

i thought this was the funniest part
"hey have held a mock wedding, announced plans to separate the two to spark a little romance and even talked of introducing panda porn — videos of other pandas mating — to get the pair in the mood."

maybe the mock wedding is why she won't fuck him

douglas on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 1:29 PM

yeah, i posted about the panda porn a while back, the thailand zoo actually got that from my personal video collection, that's how i got dibs on that female, instead of paying me for the videos i just asked for some alone time w/ the furry bitch

Green Baron on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 1:43 PM

Can I get some of that Panda porn?

douglas on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 1:47 PM

i gave it all to the zoo, i started making a personal porn tape of me and the panda, you know, doing it, but shit got outta control, used the camera in ways it wasn't meant to be used, and long story short, there's no footage

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 1:50 PM

See I would have figured that you tried taping her without her consent and she used those claws to destroy the camera.

Only a chick named 'Lea Strange' would die of 'water intoxication'.

I thought that was called drowning? Since when does someone drink so much water they die? And, if this is true, how come there isn't a law against it? What would be the legal blood-water limit that someone could have in their blood? These are questions that plague my dreams.

Regarding the 300 spartans or the defense of the pass of thermopylae, what the movie probably won't tell you is the subculture of the Spartans. Each Spartan male is given a young boy to be a mentor to and serve next to in the military. Another purpose of the young/adult relationship is for the boy to be a love slave to the adult. Sparta was a totalitarian society which meant everyone belonged to the state. The idea was that you will fight stronger in battle for someone you love rather than just a stranger. Eventually, when the young male became an adult, he would be married to a fit young woman. On the wedding night, the woman would be dressed like a young boy and her hair cut like a young boy to ease the transition. It would take years for the relationship to materialize b/c after each consummation, the adult male would return to his home with a young boy of his own. Crazy Spartans.

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 17, 2007 at 3:46 PM

Wow, thanks for the history lesson on Spartans Brent. That is pretty crazy. But, I pass no judgement on them, I mean really those fags will fuck you up.

Happy Birthday to Dave Attel, 42

joe on Thursday, January 18, 2007 at 9:54 AM

So today at work I am reading the “Dictionary of Marine Corps Terms and Words Used in Vietnam.” Some good ones that I thought you all would appreciate:
AMF: "Adios, Mother Fucker."
CHURCH KEY: bottle opener.
COMIC BOOKS: military maps.
DEAD CAT (Navy): unsuccessful catapult launch of a carrier aircraft, usually fatal to aircrew, as the ship would run over the aircraft.
EVERY SWINGING DICK: everyone.
EYE FUCK: inspect closely.
FARTSACK: mattress cover.
FIGMO: state of blissful abandon, achieved after receiving orders out of Vietnam. "Fuckit, I Got My Orders."
FNG: "Fuckin' new guy."
FUBAR: "Fucked Up Beyond All Repair" or "Recognition." "It is totally Fubar!"
HAM N'MOTHERFUCKERS: C-Ration 'Ham and Lima Beans
HOLLYWOOD MARINE: San Diego MCRD graduate. (Will we be able to call Stewie Hollywood?)
JESUS NUT: main rotor retaining nut that holds the main rotor onto the rest of the helicopter, if it came off only Jesus could help you.
JOE SHIT THE RAGMAN: un-squared-away Marine, boyfriend of Rosy Rottencrotch.
ROUND EYE: slang term used by American soldiers to describe another American
SHIT: a catchall multipurpose term
STROKE BOOK: porno magazine.
THE CROTCH: derogatory term for Marine Corps.
Now to my point, there were 2 that had circular definitions.
CHIMPO – see choda
CHODA – see chimpo

All I could think about is “Johnny Chimpo” from “Supertroopers” and choda I have heard used before. Anyone want to provide definitions for chimpo or choda?

joe on Thursday, January 18, 2007 at 9:55 AM

And when I laughed at him it was because I was a fucking retard. There isn't much intimidation when a one legged man in a wheel chair tries to get up in your face and call you a retard. This woman I ride the bus with was freaking out and my comment was "I'm not scared, if worst comes to worst I'd out run him. Also, i know where his hands are, if he pulls for a gun he has to take them off his wheels. If all else fails I can roll him into traffic."

Speaking of meat, I took a chance on some $2 bacon-wrapped tenderloins that Kroger had on sale over near their deli and was pleasantly surprised. I think I might have been the only person to ever buy them because there was an absolute shitload of them sitting over there.

Of course, I just got done running 6 miles do lord knows just about anything would have tasted good at that point.

douglas on Friday, January 19, 2007 at 11:14 AM

I had an old roommate that walked in Kroger stumbling drunk around 3 in the morning, asked if he could get some boxes to move, he took one stuffed it with Crab legs, filets, ribeyes, strips, anything expensive and then just walked out with it, saying "thanks for the boxes." These are the same roommates that robbed the deans milk guy too.

Michelle's roommate bought some tootsie rolls with little sayings on them for Valentine's Day. One of them says WYSIWYG on it. First, we were like, what the hell ghetto slang is this?

A little Googling discovers it is really a computer geek term for "What You See Is What You Get":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WYSIWYG

But this still begs the question... why is it on a Valentine's candy?

Phil on Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 9:32 PM

I think at some point they tried to make some "cooler" valentines day sayings. Unfortunately the people coming up with these savings are the type of people that work in a candy factory so they were probably trying to come up with something like "ROTFL" that applied to valentines day and typed in "computer acronyms" into google and found one that had to do with "seeing" someone. And those morons thought that maybe kids used WYSIWIG to describe themselves.

Personally if I worked for the tootsie roll company I'd have slogans like this on the candy:
"I think of your tight little ass every time I eat this candy that looks like tiny turds. Now let's fuck"

I'd have to use a really small font.

Brock on Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 10:16 PM

Jay, if you have Killswitch's End of Heartache album, turn on "When Darkness Falls." I'm using this as the Reche Caldwell anthem.

Thank God the Patriots lost... because I can't stand listening to commentators blow Bill Belichick anymore.

"He's the greatest coach ever"

"He's a genius!"

"He's a great lover, he gave me a reach-around doing a Tuscan Mule."

Brock on Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 10:24 PM

I'm cheering for the Bears. I cheered for the Colts, because I despise the Patriots, but now I'd prefer a bad-ass like Brian Urlacher to kill Manning.

Besides... Peyton Manning hasn't had an opportunity to choke in the Super Bowl.

Brock on Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 10:27 PM

We're discussing whether Reche Caldwell was front row for Howard Dean's inspirational BEEEE-YAAAH speech. It appears he's still inspired!

Jerome on Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 10:30 PM

I'm pretty sure Reche Caldwell is related to the lady that can make her eyeballs protrude from their sockets.

Brock on Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 10:41 PM

My prediction of the Bears winning is a qualified opinion since this will be the first Super Bowl where you will have to call me Doctor. This is in contrast to my teenage prediction of the Buffalo Bills winning 4 in a row.

Phil on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 12:05 AM

They just said there was an open forum downtown tomorrow about the design of the "Shocker Towers" that they were building. Could someone head down there for me tomorrow and tell them "How about you build something that we know won't look retarded in 15 years? Thanks!"

joe on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 7:28 AM

I was thinking about hitting up the convention center at 10:30 on my break to voice my opinion on the building.

Marc on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 8:38 AM

Okay, so I am a big dork and need to get more of a life. but until then new episodes of some of my favorite shows start back up again tonight after a holiday absence. I know some of you have said Thursday is the best tv day. and it is a spectacular lineup of great shows. but Monday is my day. 24, Studio 60, Prison Break, How I Met Your Mother, Heroes, CSI Miami, Two and a Half Men.

Marc on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 8:41 AM

You could always try to get them to build the "stink tower." If they DID build the buildings and I knew someone who lived there I think it would be unavoidable to not refer to them as the Shocker Towers.

Bigworm on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 8:46 AM

Personally, I like the new building design, but I see how it will look really stupid in a few years.

UK fans - Curtis Pulley (backup QB and WR) left UK......speculation suggests grades were an issue. He does have a redshirt season available and most believe he will use this as his redshirt year to get his grades back up and get back to Lexington. So what really sucks is now if Woodson goes down, we put in one of our two redshirt freshman quarterbacks. Damn I love this shit.

Marc on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 8:51 AM

Is this a "new design" that is different from the Shocker Towers that I know and love?

Douglas - I found the show for you. It is called "Ms. Adventure" and it is on the Discovery Channel. Basically, they are looking at animal courtship and how they can apply it to human relationships...which sounds shitty, but the important thing here is animal porn on TV.

"Former LSU football coach Nick Saban keeps recruiting Louisiana football players -- even ones who have announced they plan to play football for the Tigers. Saban, the new Alabama coach, made visits in the last week to two players who have made oral commitments to attend LSU. Family members of both players said Saban took credit for LSU's 22-4 record since he left, saying it was done with players he brought to Baton Rouge. LSU coach Les Miles dispatched assistant coaches Bo Pelini, Doug Mallory and Josh Henson to follow up both of Saban's visits."

Brock on Monday, January 22, 2007 at 1:59 PM

He doesn't compliment them... he states that Manning has no business being a football hero... because he's not sexy like that Brady fella.

The whole theme of the article is that the Pats gave the game to the Colts. "All the Pats had to do is convert a 3rd and 4, and they win" No, the Colts defense didn't murder Maroney... he gave up... sure...

They both seem like really good shows. I was more hooked on 24 because i honestly didn't understand what any of the "Heroes" did. Heroes would have scored a lot higher in my book if the blonde chick got fingered banged.

just wait ten years or until heroes gets cancelled, then we'll see her getting all kinds of banged

i've never really watched 24, i watched an episode once and had no clue what was going on, one of these days i'm going to start at the beginning like i did the wire and catch up on everything too

Phil on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 10:20 AM

oh brent, you missed out at trivia. Some dude tripping on Acid hung out with me for a little while as I waited for Marc to show up. He talked a million words a second, in rhyme, about how the Dark Light was losing so it was coming to our universe because other universes had multiple suns so it was too damn hot for the dark light to exist there. but the dark light was losing because one day he was driving around and felt like he was on fire and the sun god appeared to him. At this point my new friend got up to show me the dance the sun god did and I swear to god it looked like the dance Donkey Kong did in Mario Brothers.

So I have a 6'4" black dude with an afro sitting with me telling me about how the dark forces are out to get us, and I keep interrupting his stories to ask him stuff like "dude - the olympics. Tell me you know where they were first held in the US." And then this guys eyes lit up and told me about how when he was a kid he wanted to be in the X Games so he grabbed hold of his mom Tercel and got pulled behind it like in Back to the Future. He then showed me a giant ass wound down his side from when he hit the ground at 35 MPH because his mom didn't slow down. I also went to him for confirmation on the company whose slogan was "How do you spell relief" but the only answer I could get out of him was "r-e-l-e-i-f" which I didn't have the heart nor the firepower to tell him how wrong he was.

So once this guy showed me the cigarette burn his "homosexual friend" gave him I decided to throw Marc under the table and changed my team name to "all by myself until the fat kid shows up." My buddy tripping on acid was of no help on a British Comedy question and thanked me for chatting with me and reminded me to look up a band called 30 seconds to mars - which turns out is Jared Leto's band.

So Marc eventually shows up, at which point the dude on the team next to me goes "hey, it's the fat kid!" which was high comedy and then Marc and I proceeded to get our ass kicked, although if I knew more about Major League Baseball single season strikeout record holders we would have finished 3rd.

Ironic side note: one of the questions last night was "what does LSD stand for"

For you bargain gurus out there, I'm in the need of assistance.

I need to find a laptop computer about $1500 with close to $500 in rebates. The specs on the computer are not that important. I just want rebates approaching $500 and the total cost before rebates cannot exceed $1500.

The best I've found are $200 rebates, but I know there are better options.

Phil on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 4:58 PM

So you want a $1500 laptop for around $1000? Any particular reason?

You might have trouble with this. Dell has opted to do away with rebates (http://www.informationweek.com/stor...cleID=196513390) and I bet many PC manufactures will do the same. But BestBuy and CircuitCity sometimes offer big ass rebates but require something retarded like 3 years of Prodigy membership

Brock on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 5:07 PM

I'd rather not disclose. I just can't spend more than $1500 before rebate.

Brock on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 5:09 PM

I suppose a "rebate" may not be absolutely necessary... just have to get near $500 in discounts after original purchase price. This is how it works with Google Checkout's $50 off coupons.

Rumor on the street be that Coach Brooks got tired of the waiting game and pulled his scholarship.

Phil on Wednesday, January 24, 2007 at 10:36 AM

They pulled his scholarship because they knew he wasn't coming to UK and they already have offered way more scholarships than they have available. I don't think it had anything to do with the waiting game.

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 24, 2007 at 10:50 AM

Yes they have more scholarship offers than scholarships available right now. All major programs do that, because they convince people to GRAY SHIRT, i.e. enroll in spring. That way you lock up a good player and have him for next year.

VA may or may not have decided to come to UK, but that is irrelevant now. He should have made up his mind, long before Coach Brooks made it up for him. There isn't a need at his position as we need other positions for. We already have a few 3 star running backs coming into UK for this class, and with Little, Dixon, and Smith we are good to go at his position. I was pretty excited about taking VA, however, when UK passes on him to build depth on other positions, which require a more immediate need....I am all for it.

douglas on Thursday, January 25, 2007 at 9:44 AM

yeah, that's two very shitty performances against teams that aren't nearly as talented as UK is, there's no way we should've lost to Vandy and Georgia

douglas on Thursday, January 25, 2007 at 9:47 AM

i've never once been on the fire tubby bandwagon, but if this continues this year, then I'm jumping on it, there's really no excuse for the past two games, they kept fucking up stupid things, georgia didn't beat them, UK just beat themselves w/ stupid turnovers, not passing and moving on offense w/o the ball, it's fucking ridiculous how bad they played the last two games

Bigworm on Thursday, January 25, 2007 at 11:00 AM

I can handle losing because we don't have the talent that we use to, that is okay with me, but when we lose because we get out coached that is a big no no in my book. OTS is a great game coach, I didn't see the look on Donna's face, but from what the message boards read (yes some have an agenda), the expression was a realization that tubby just lost his job.

I am a huge OTS fan, however, we get no production from the PF position on a consistent basis. We need more help down low, plain and simple. If OTS can't get the job done, we need someone who can and will. I don't think OTS should be fired, however, if he left after this year I think it would be good for both because he can easily land an NBA job or another college coaching job at a program without the same demand that we have year in and year out.

douglas on Thursday, January 25, 2007 at 11:48 AM

in all fairness, there's still plenty of HUGE games this year to right the ship, but you're right, if we end up w/ 15 losses this year, especially if we fail to make the NCAA, tubby will probably step down. with that said, i'm not giving up on the year, for some reason UK tends to play up to their competition, and I know we don't suck that bad, they choke maybe, but they don't suck, so who knows, there's still plenty of time to "salvage" the season, if that's the right word

This is just another example, of how Duke bends the rules to win a game. They need official time keepers if they don't have them in the ACC (which they should) or they just need to provide Big Ten timekeepers.

This also happened earlier this year as well.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 2:03 PM

The clock thing actually should have worked against Duke if it weren't for the turnover. Duke would want the clock starting immediately because Clemson had to foul and send duke to the free throw line which is what happens 99.9% of the time in those situation. The only way the rules were bent to favor Duke in this situation is if the timekeeper in someway knew that Duke was going to turn the ball over and Clemson would catch and release. In every other situation Duke would be at a disadvantage by the clock not immediately starting because Clemson would have fouled and no time would have ran off the clock giving Clemson an extra second.

Bigworm on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 2:47 PM

Well that is completely true, however, it is quit obvious that the ball went straight to the Clemson guy....just saying if my team just turned it over, I'd hold it a second or two if I was managing the clock and wanted to give my team a chance...just in case.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 2:54 PM

so you are saying the Duke score keeper immediately recognized that the pass was going to be errant as the duke player released the ball and made a conscious decision NOT to start the clock because he knew that if the shot went in that Duke would need at least 3 seconds to go the length of the court AND knew that the Clemson shot would be good so that stopping the clock would not benefit clemson in case they missed the shot and got the rebound?

I'm not saying Duke doesn't gets away with murder on their own court. I'm just saying that the clock situation last night for it to be a conspiracy theory would require a clock operator to not only have lighting fast reflexes but also would need the ability to predict the future.

Bigworm on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 3:02 PM

No I am not saying that at all. I am simply saying this shit happens all too often at Duke. That is all.

Are you saying that you can't watch a basketball game and realize when a pass is going to the wrong player? It isn't that hard at all, Philco. I use to keep clocks when I was in 6th grade for youth league and I could tell when something errant was happening. If a 6th grader can react quickly enough in the situation, someone who is keeping D1 basketball games shouldn't have a problem.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 3:33 PM

Barry, for what it is worth Willie Williams has only commited two crimes in the past 8 years - setting off a fire extinguisher and hugging a woman. So he transfered away from Miami to get away from "bad influences" and went to a school whose coach is also the sheriff. Apparently he's been a model citizen since leaving Miami which was his goal for leaving. That being said I'm sure he has a VERY short lease and will be kept away from those Notre Dame transfers who are a bad influence.

As for Josh Miller he's being recruited to play WR.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 3:35 PM

by eight years I mean 5. I'm bad at math.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 3:37 PM

Oh, and Willie left Miami over a dispute over playing time. He had no problems academically or behavioral while at Miami

Barry on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 3:38 PM

i hope you're right about williams. i'm all about giving kids a second chance and all, but 11 arrests and conflicts of interest with coaches makes me a little edgy. And the Miller receiver thing is a relief. THanks.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 3:41 PM

here's a video about Josh Miller playing "QB". I think you'll see why he is being recruited to play WR: http://sunshinepreps.net/viewer/ind...deo=2007104.wmv

I hope I'm right about Williams too. The only players Louisville has had trouble with in the past by bringing in where freaking Georgia Tech and Notre Dame transfers. Other than that Jurich has been pretty anal about that kind of stuff since John L Smith left so I assume he knows what he's doing.

Green Baron on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 4:41 PM

Wes,
Your link to the Duke video just emphasizes one small iota of what I hate about college basketball. To honestly believe that there is only 5 seconds left in the game, in any game, is ludicrous. How many inbounds and clock stoppages/restarts occur in a game? Honestly? To believe that the clock is at all accurate is to believe in the Easter Bunny. Wait, that is true, so what was I saying again?
I know the clock is to be used by each team to see how much time they have to plan their scoring opportunities. However, it would be better if it were like soccer. Let the clock run for 30-40 minutes, and then a 2 minute dual at the end.
Better yet, for the last two minutes, the hottest girl from each school enters the oil wrestling pit and we really decide who should win. That would be a basketball game I would watch again.

July 14th article on Willie Williams.

http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?...o&type=lgns

It doesn't surprise, it's not like UofL has taken transfers with records before, but I do believe a man can be rehabilitated and maybe a change of scenery is a good thing for Mr. Williams. Of course, personally I'd like to have the bad muther fucker playing in the middle in my opinion....let opposing teams know that he is our version of Alvin from The Program only meaner!

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 7:44 PM

here's the article on Williams going to the JC coached by the Sheriff:

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 7:46 PM

if anyone can find a copy of the recruiting diaries Willie wrote where he complained that Alabama didn't give him any lobster so he wasn't going to go there even though Alabama did send the cheerleaders to tell him good bye as he boarded the private jet you'd be my hero.

Bigworm on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 7:49 PM

Excerpts from his diary posted in the Miami Herald.

(Excerpts from his recruiting diary) - Miami Herald

When Broward County Jail came to pick me up, I knew it was special. They sent a whole private van just for me! I knew I must have been important to them because I was the only recruit in the van. That was tight. They made a big deal out of trying to impress me by blaring the sirens and giving me my own armed escort. I felt important.

When I arrived at the jail, the warden told me that I could expect to start right away for the prison team. They have lost all of their starting linebackers to parole so the early playing time sounded good to me. The warden took me into a room. They already had a uniform set out just for me! I asked the warden if I could keep my highschool number but he said, “look at your uniform Willie, it’s already got a number on it, we copied it from your first arrest”. I guess they saved #986347 for me! Anyway, I put on the uniform and the warden told me “It’s you, Willie.” From there I got to run out into the cell block with my uniform on. I got a tour of the weight room and it was the best. It is the only weight room I have ever seen where it is outside in the “yard”. Man, they have a great weight training program and some of those big dudes must work out six hours a day.

I told the warden I was hungry and he took me to the restuarant to eat. It was the only place I have visited that has a restaurant right there. I asked for 5 lobster tails and 2 steaks. They told me they were out of both so I had 6 sloppy joes. To be honest, the food wasn’t up to my usual standards. Fortunately, one of the playas hosting me offered to toss me a salad later that night. That was tight.

After dinner I was looking to party. I asked some of the playas “where the women at?” they just looked at me and smiled.

I met with a counselor to talk about classes. I couldn’t decide whether to study liscense plate manufacturing or internet dating.

I don't know if this is true, I am too lazy to look it up, but here is some stuff.

Phil on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 7:51 PM

I found that - pretty good parody. That's how over the top it was though. Just replace "Alabama" with "Prison." Actually, some may subconsciously do that anyway. So Barry, what do you think about Saban grabbing Luther Davis?

Brock on Saturday, January 27, 2007 at 1:50 AM

This Willie Williams shit is kind of crap. If he was going to UC, he'd be the biggest thug since Charles Oakley, but the spin UofL is putting on this guy is ridiculous. I don't know how you spin 8 arrests... the guy is a delinquent.

Petrino is gone, you need talent... its a new coach... just take the guy and his baggage... stop making him out to be some kind of victim of circumstance.

Dave on Saturday, January 27, 2007 at 12:44 PM

I have no problem with UL going after and signing Willie Williams. One, it wasn't Kragthorpe that went after this kid. (Jurich knew Williams' community college coach.) Jurich has a good track record and I am sure he is confident that this kid might be right ready to make an impact on a big time football program. You look at the number of scholarships given out to people that never do anything and this seems like a no-brainer. (For example look at Kentucky basketball's wasted scholarships on Sherray Thomas, and last year with Shagari Allenye (spelling?). Williams has a felony charge for setting off some fire extinguishers in a dorm and a misdemeanor battery charge for hugging a woman without her consent. I mean if that was the case, Big Jay would have like 200 misdeameanor battery charges for drunk-hugging women.

Jay on Saturday, January 27, 2007 at 3:54 PM

In the Replacements Shane Falco played for Ohio State and lost in the Sugar Bowl 45-0 to Florida State. Is this a correct statement?

Phil on Saturday, January 27, 2007 at 7:11 PM

I believe they only said they lost by 45. I don't think a score was given. Coach McGinty said something like "what'd you lose that Sugar Bowl game by, 40 points?" And Troy Smith, er, I mean Shane Falco says "45". Other than that he played for Ohio State and lost in the 1996 Sugar Bowl to FSU

Bigworm on Sunday, January 28, 2007 at 3:59 PM

Dave - Pearl is doing anything he has to do in order to get fan support for his basketball team. Tubby and Rick didn't have to resort to painting up for the fans to love their basketball team.

With that being said, I think it's great honestly. He is willing to do anything to get people excited.

Although that plan didn't work to well last friday and saturday, as I went to play with kids at the at a volunteer center while hungover. I got better quick. but the first two hour of waking life (prior to the time with kids) that day were horrible.

So I am think of going up to celebrate with you I just cant drink too much, or any, and i'd have to nail any of michelle's friends earlier than dawn, if it was gonna work out that way.

Chase bank represented natty sci well in a ymca rec league basketball game last night. I believe it was 4 or 5 technicals, 2 ejections, and we still won. If you can't beat em fight em and if you can beat em fight em anyways. I picked up my second technical taking terry's back when he got in a fight. I got punched and picked up a T in the process of trying to get terry out of a fight since his wife and 1 year old daughter was there. The punch was thrown at Terry and landed on me so i threw a forearm into a guy with a jersey that said lil pelphrey and then drug Terry out of the gym. Terry was ejected and I got a T and the dude that punched me didn't get shit. Another fight broke out when a guy landed a bow to my face and I picked up the foul on it and another guy on my team went after him and got a T for his 5th foul and kicked out of the gym. Is it bad if we get banned from the YMCA rec league?

We already know Coleman is an idiot, but I can't believe they even published that article.

When UC went to hire a new basketball and football coach over the last year, they announced that they had met the requirement of interviewing minorities for both positions. I assumed that this was part of the NCAA policy. However, it may just be part of Ohio policy. Either way, the athletic department went out of their way to make this point.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 at 12:11 PM

i love some of the comments on that article, here' s a couple:

I (a white guy) am going to insist the "Rev." Coleman's Justice Resource Center hire me because they don't have enough white people.

Whats next, do all professional sports teams have to start having a certain amount of white boys on the team because as we can all agree, pro sports is dominated by black athletes?

maybe this is a dumb question, but what's special about acid-free paper? what's the difference between regular paper?

jen on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 9:40 AM

Brock-- scrapbooking paper is acid free and you can get it at like Michaels and Hobby Lobby or craft stores, and you can buy it by the sheet. I can bring you some Friday unless you need it before then...

Brock on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 9:44 AM

Supposedly acid-free paper lasts like 500 years and it never yellows or fades. Some kind of special processing when they make it. Why I need it for some form that won't be looked at beyond next week, I have no idea.

Jen, I do need to run it through a laser printer, and it needs to be legal size. I always thought scrap booking paper was a little larger.

jen on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 9:44 AM

Oh... looks like most resume paper is acid free too. Go to staples where they make copies and you can buy it by the sheet back there too.

Brock on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 9:45 AM

Yeah, I found Staples to be the most likely option. If worse comes to worst, I'll just rip open a package and steal a couple of sheets.

I don't do much printing at home, and I don't think it would be necessary to print out google maps on acid-free paper in the future.

so, a little late to jump in, but Mardi Gras is coming up and maybe F-Da Eagles Heather will be out and about. And by F-Da Eagles Heather, I mean her fun bags. I make this offer every year and so I'm making it again now. Come down, stay in Baton Rouge for free, drive to New Orleans (70 miles) and see lots of women who forgot what dignity and self respect were like 3 shots ago...douglas its perfect

Brock on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 1:35 PM

When is Mardi Gras again??

Barry on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 1:47 PM

February 20th is Fat Tuesday (the last day of Mardi Gras). So pretty much the whole week before then. On another issue, Joe what does a torn MCL feel like and where exactly does it hurt most.

Barry on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 1:58 PM

1. What do you call a drug ring in Cincinnati?
A huddle.

2. Four Bengals are in a car, who's driving?
The police.

3. Why can't Chris Henry get into a huddle on the field anymore?
It is a parole violation for him to associate with known felons.

4. The Cincinnati newspapers reported yesterday that Paul Brown Stadium
is going to take out the artificial turf because the Bengals "play
better on grass."

5. Coach Marvin Lewis has adopted a new "Honor System" for his players
"Yes your Honor, No your Honor".

6. The Bengals knew they had to do something for their defense, but
they couldn't get the defensive coordinator they really wanted: Johnny
Cochran

7. How do the Bengals spend their first week at mini- camp?
Studying the Miranda Rights.

PANDA BEAR!" She was hot but an interesting mix. dressed cutest and retro and had a pink beret in her hair. but she had a arm-length tattoo from the shoulder to the elbow. and her hair was emo-ish. It was like Lisa Loeb meets Lita. And she had a high-pitch voice. Needless to say, I'd do her.

Brock's defense went well, he's now getting grilled by the committee, which I have always imagined them just lubing up and bending you over, because everyone I asked never can give me an example of what happens at that point. They always just run away in a corner and hide and suck their thumb.

I am going to Cincinnati and not spending the night. (I got class in the morning at Bellarmine.) So if anyone else wants to do the same let me know and maybe we can all just share a car. I'm flexible on leave time, if that helps, I just need to make it to Bellarmine by 8:45AM.

jen on Friday, February 02, 2007 at 4:56 PM

what time are you going tonight Marc?

Marc on Friday, February 02, 2007 at 4:59 PM

I heard others say, "we wouldn't have to show up until maybe 9, right?" So does that make a leave time of 7? I'm flexible with leave time here and leave time there. I called Wes, left a voice mail. If Chris and Joanna find out if they will stay up there or come back down, then they could join. Or they could drive up and play-it-by-ear. I don't have that option. I have to be back. but and flexible on the two leave times.

Jen, I thought you were being driven by your roomie?

Phil on Friday, February 02, 2007 at 11:13 PM

yeah, I work for one.

My unofficial ASP.NET 2.0 hosting companies
1) MaximumASP
2) Orcsweb

Second level
3) DiscountASP
3) Webhost4life
3) 1&1

Depending on what you are doing one of the second level sites should be fine. The service will suck but the uptime and performance should all be ok. Anything costing less than $10 a month is not to be trusted nor should any site offering unlimited anything.

Of course, if you need a place to put some files for testing I can create you a site and an ftp account on my server. Just let me know.

adrian on Friday, February 02, 2007 at 11:23 PM

I came up with this crazy idea last week and started planning out the system. I thought about prototyping it out in .Net. Of course the ultimate goal is to eventually be bought out by a larger company but i would need some space to hold the files and try to draw traffic and users to it. Ideally, if revenue did come in, then a dedicated server would be required and a fairly large amount of data transfer a month. But to get to that point the idea has to catch on and draw people to it and get some adds to pull in some money.

adrian on Friday, February 02, 2007 at 11:24 PM

ads*

Phil on Friday, February 02, 2007 at 11:41 PM

well, let me know if you need some space or any help with your project. You do get what you pay for. If you want to get set up initially with me my server should be able to hold up pretty well unless your idea is an overwhelming initial success. And if that's the case I could easily move you to a dedicated server.

by the way, I recommend reading this book before starting a new web application. lots of stuff here:

Brock on Saturday, February 03, 2007 at 3:35 PM

This hangover sucks.... I probably shouldn't have drank that 40 of malt liquor last night. However, the night was, from what I remember, a success.

Wes did throw Chris across the living room, and apparently vomited all over himself. And, as usual, Chris passed out WAY before anyone else.

I've come to the conclusion that Wes is a UK fan.

Ty's 21 second keg stand holds the record followed by General Zod's 13 seconds... no one else even came close.

Marc and Jen, I tried my best to introduce you to as many single men and women as possible... although I can't be sure if I introduced Marc to men or women.

Joe managed to survive the night without bleeding, but Chris didn't.

There were so many people there, I can't even remember half the stories.

jen on Saturday, February 03, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Good lookin' out, Brock. I had a great time. Congrats again.

Bigworm on Saturday, February 03, 2007 at 6:08 PM

Okay I don't remember throwing Chris across the room, what was that all about?

Did Chris kick my ass afterwards, if not, he probably should have. I have a new favorite restaurant in Bob Evans. The sausage gravy and fried new potatoes are just like cereal!

Apparently, my favorite sweater suffered a casualty last night, much like the fallen soldiers who gave their lives in the World Wars, I let my sweater rest in peace where it gave its life.

Brock - I cleaned up the vomit the best I could for someone who was still drunk the next morning. But I have a feeling the shooting forward is still going to be pissed, and rightfully so.

Michelle - if you are looking for a gray t-shirt with the Bearcats logo on it, I have it and will return it laundered. Apparently my t-shirt died last night too.

Bigworm on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 2:50 PM

I have no clue about Clemson Jen though.

Brent on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 4:14 PM

What's everybody doing for the superbowl?

Brock on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 6:19 PM

I'm hanging out with Clemson Jen for Super Bowl. Why did you puke on her floor?

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 6:39 PM

Salesgenie.com? Did I just go back in time 7 years? WHAT THE FUCK?

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 6:41 PM

I'm going to be making salesgenie.com jokes the rest of the weak. For example tomorrow at work I'm going to just respond to everything with "only fools work hard." I'm excited

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 6:58 PM

Too much to make fun of...

The snickers ad that wsa done only to get the gay people to keep bringing it up.
The "black people swimming" movie. HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
The FedEx ad where they randomly threw in the Final Countdown and someone getting hit by an asteroid in an attempt to make the commercial better
BUD LIGHT WILL NEVER BE DRANK AGAIN FOR HAVING CARLOS MENCIA AS A SPOKESMAN - BEANERS

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 7:03 PM

I think Chevy just sandbagged us. They spent all season ramming that "Our Country" shit down our throats and bring out decent music in a commercial during the superbowl. Well done, Chevy.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 7:16 PM

If I was someone who only watched the super bowl for the ads I'd be pissed off right now. I don't think CBS has ran an ad for the past 8 minutes of game time. I wonder if they were charging a ridiculous amount for first quarter ads and people just decided to show their shitty Sales leads ads in the fourth quarter.

GoDaddy's ads scream "let's just have our DBA make our ads up"
Coke rocking out the GTA ad that is fan fucking tastic. That's a great ad.

Letterman still has the best ad so far.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 7:33 PM

wait, wait...Did Doritos just beat out Chevy for the first fan made ad by 30 seconds. Sucks to be you, Chevy. But "You" truly is the times man of the year with all these fan made ads. I can't wait to make my own fan made ad for Salesgenie.com for next years super bowl, although they seem to be behind the curve by about 8 years so perhaps I'll have to wait until 2015.

I think I'm going to go with the "unexpected environment + 80s music + someone getting killed" template that FedEx loves.

Btw, we are currently at ZERO Peyton Manning ads.

Wow, Coke reminds us that black history month is about...the tuskeegee airmen and Harriet Tubman.

This reminds me, Larry Willmore had a hilarious thing on Black History Month including making Black History Month Eve "Whitey Gras"

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 7:44 PM

I also have to question GM's taste in their ad - way to trivialize suicide in a game featuring Tony Dungy.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 7:49 PM

Sprint's "Connectile Dysfunction" ad just took the lead for best Super Bowl ad and has a perhaps insurmountable advantage in the "most quoted ad at work tomorrow" category.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 8:01 PM

Darryl Issac will have to do a lot better than that "football hitting a windshield" ad if he wants to top the "crazy asian people don't speak-a the english" ad from last year.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 8:44 PM

e-trade bank robbery commercials wasn't too bad. Best of the "ironic" commercials so far but I don't think it has enough to overtake "Connectile Disfunction" or Letterman's ad.

Talking Ape checking out the chick...meh.

Looks like Revlon spent enough money to run a super bowl commercial that seems to go on forever, brings in Cheryl Crowe with even a song on iTunes, film the ad in 16:9, and then fucks everything up by not broadcasting the ad in HD. Morons.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 8:51 PM

CareerBuilder.com once again with a solid job of having a commercial that backs up their brand The ads aren't particularly funny (and they ripped off Monty Python in the Promotion Pit) but at least they make sense with their business with the "Do more than survive the work week" slogan.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 9:01 PM

Toyota Tundra ads are pretty cool from a visual perspective. You don't see too many "funny" car ads.

Emerald Nuts

Ok, Nationwide with with the simple gag of Kevin Federline. Well played, Nationwide. The bar was set low and you cleared it with ease. When I heard about that ad I figured it would be terrible. That was slightly above average making it one of the funniest so far tonight.

Back to back ads going with the "throwaway" line at the end with the FedEx "Mr. Turkeyneck" and the "He has a chainsaw!" one from whatever beer commercial I just saw.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 9:19 PM

Uh, did that prudential ad sound like they kept saying stuff like "Iraq is soothing"? Ugh, who OKs these ads?

Hey, did anyone know the Pro Bowl is going to be on CBS?

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 9:21 PM

Sexy Rexy with one of the worst passes in the history of the Super Bowl.

The sex cannon just shot his load all over the bear's superbowl chances' face.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 9:30 PM

Sexy Rexy just earned this graphic from deadspin:http://deadspin.com/sports/super-bo...rter-233834.php

Someone needs to invite Phil to a Super Bowl party next year.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 9:37 PM

I'm having a Super Bowl party - IN MY PANTS

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 9:52 PM

Go Daddy needs less Midget Dancing and ugly whores in their marketting department and more people that can come up with a less shitty ad campaign.

NFL Films bringing the thunder with another great ad with Favre...

adrian on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 10:00 PM

Phil, if i buy a domain name we can get that to work on your sever can't we?

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 10:15 PM

yeah, that's not a problem at all. E-mail me at phil.scott (at) gmail.com and I can hook you up. I've got a FTP site setup, your own IP address and your own little website ready to go.

adrian on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 10:16 PM

cool beans!

adrian on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 10:19 PM

I wonder what the odds are going to be if Grossman will be the starting QB next year.

Bigworm on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 10:48 PM

Brock I don't think it was a well thought out plan, as I don't remember getting sick at all. I woke up and it was just there.

Phil on Sunday, February 04, 2007 at 11:11 PM

I'm kinda disappointed that my hard work on this comment didn't elicit a response:

You would think someone at the CJ would be out for you by now Phil, awesome comments once again!

Marc on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 1:32 AM

phil, use your magic to find a site hosting the best super bowl ads.

Phil on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 9:01 AM

the best ads? Well you can find them both at NFL.com because one was the fan made one with Favre and the other great one was the chad johnson one for the NFL Network.

The rest of the ads can be found at http://www.ifilm.com

Jay on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 9:46 AM

Phil, you were right. The superbowl ads pretty much sucked. I expect a lot more from bud light. The fan made one was pretty cool, and the david letterman one was also good. There was one that made me laugh a lot, but I can't remember what it was.

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 9:50 AM

Jay, did you drive back to Frankfort Friday night?

I'm pretty sure I lost several hours that night, and I'm trying to piece things back together.

Jay on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 9:53 AM

Yeah, I left about 3:45 and got back about 5:15.

Jay on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 9:53 AM

Happy Birthday to Christopher Guest, 59

Jay on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 10:01 AM

This is a reminder that the Stagger Of Love is this Friday. I hope people can come. Adrian, Veronica is going to be there.

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 10:12 AM

Jay, any details regarding the Stagger Friday?

Phil on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 11:16 AM

big jay, e-mail me the Stagger of Love details at phil.scott (at) gmail.com. I need a new post and we might as well do things up right.

I just sent it to Phil. Basically, be at my apartment at 6:30 friday evening. If you need directions, I will email them to you.

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 11:48 AM

What's the availability of crashing at your place?

jen on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 11:53 AM

stagger stagger stagger stagger stagger stagger

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 11:54 AM

I'll make sure to bring my "Oh!-Face" this Friday.

jen on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 11:57 AM

haha... good lookin' out, Brock. I'm really glad I dont hate you.

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 11:58 AM

Anytime Jen. Do you remember assaulting Cuban when he passed out on the couch? I think there are pictures.

jen on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:04 PM

yeah, I was just messin with him.

Jay on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:05 PM

Anyone is welcome to crash at my place. Depending upon how many actually people show up, it might be a little crowded. However, one person can sleep on the couch, one person can sleep in the chair, and three people (including me) can sleep in my bed. The rest are left to claim the floor. I have one extra blanket and a couple of extra pillows. I encourage people to bring their own.

jen on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:05 PM

I'd be willing to bet he doesnt remember

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:12 PM

Yes, there was quite a discussion on whether Chris should get a penis drawn on his face for passing out early. But I think your Cuban-drop didn't happen until a lot later... but I'm not positive, because I don't remember certain hours.

Jay on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:29 PM

Nice. I like where this is going.

Bigworm on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:46 PM

I don't know if I am making the stagger or not. I think my liver still hates me. I know my stomach still hates me.

Brock on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:48 PM

There is a long time and a lot of Pepto between now and Friday. Come on Wes.

Cuban on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:55 PM

Cuban on Monday, February 05, 2007 at 12:58 PM

Also for the record, I didn't even know I was assaulted by Jen until the next morning. I just want to know if i lasted 3 1/2 like Bmac.

I think Snickers had a great commercial with the 2 mechanics.
