  1. Yea, I've already conceded that point, and it sucks that we're being forced to give up a home game like this.
  2. No, but to the millions of other people who aren't high school football players and are looking for something to watch on a traditionally dead night for television, sure.
  3. Well, and the other side of that coin is there's not a lot of competition for TV eyes on a Friday night. So, even though we lose out on that weekend, recruting-wise, it's a large billboard to showcase the program on. Yea, but there's only 7 of them a year, and the gameday atmosphere is one of the absolute biggest advantages we have. It kind of evens out in the end, but it's still a bit of a bitter pill to swallow when you want kids to experience what an actual game is like.
  4. This is the biggest detriment for me; you only get so many opportunities to use your best advantages in recruiting, and moving from Saturday to Friday hurts a lot in terms of getting kids on campus.
  5. They absolutely should have; if one institution earned an SMU-style spanking, it was Penn State.
  6. Well, yes; I was being a touch sarcastic. But, it's amazing what can happen when you play your best players in the biggest situations.
  7. David Zaslav ruins everything he touches.
  8. Really looking forward to Bolt starting a walking righty who hasn't pitched all season tonight.
  9. https://www.inquirer.com/college-sports/penn-state/penn-state-lawsuit-james-franklin-alleged-meddling-20240521.html We need everything to be as copacetic as possible at PSU.
  10. It's a direct continuation of the original series...but it's matured with its audience, and geared much more towards the adults who watched the original show. It's also much more well written and plotted than the original series, too.
  11. If you can get past it being a cartoon, X-Men '97 might be the best show of the year.
  12. Yep. You have to take a high level QB every year, even moreso now with the Portal being a thing.
  13. Start prepping to pour one out for Inside the NBA.
  14. I don't remember which show it was, but one of the local morning shows made the point that Bolt's philosophy on midweek games was crafted from all his time in the SEC: they used midweek games as a way to find/build depth and experiement with rotations and batting orders while relying on the SOS of their conference to build resumes.
  15. Because Bolt doesn't treat midweek games like they count; he treats them as glorified scrimmages.
  16. Send them to College Station to put them out of their misery.
  17. Trying to say a ghost runner was stealing usually led to a fight.
  18. Good. Now move the student section down into the middle of East Stadium.
  19. It blows my mind that Creighton is 11-0 in midweek games and is currently not making the Big East tournament, whereas Nebraska sucks in midweek games, and just moved up(!) in the RPI after last night.
  20. Consequential is a difficult term to wrap ones head around, because it can both be framed as a positive or a negative. Johnson got passed and signed the Civil Rights Act of '63, one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in our country's history, but Vietnam ruined his presidency and all the positives his Great Society brought. Reagan was a steady hand after the political and economic turmoil of the 70s, but his reformation of the economy, tax code and unification of religious political entities and the Republican party is immensely consequential, given our current political climate. Clinton oversaw the last real economic boom we've had, and W. got us involved in virtually a second Vietnam. My answers: - Johnson - Eisenhower - Obama - Johnson
  21. Yea, kinda think I'm off the Boltwagon at this point.
  22. I have very little confidence in this team in midweek games at this point.
