2nd guest column... El Padrino's College Football Preview

With college football just about here, I had to find a way to get this in this week.

Our friend from Brooklyn, El Padrino, put this top 25 together for us to enjoy. I'm sure it will start the ball rolling.

It's long, so I will stop writing now and let El Pad do his thing.

-----------------------------

El Pad’s Top 25

1. USC- I’m going back to the well on this one. Leinart and Bush were all-timers.
They cannot be replaced but they are still loaded with talent that can be stretched throughout every position. Plus they return Steve Smith, Dwayne Jarret and have an NFL caliber WR named Vidal Hazelton. The defense is what will carry them at times. USC’s second stringers can start for at least 100 other programs. The only question mark is the QB position, I don’t know much about John David Booty or Mark Sanchez other than that Booty has a back problem and Sanchez keeps getting in trouble with the law.
Player to watch: Vidal Hazelton, WR

2. Ohio State- QB Troy Smith is a true playmaker and with Ted Ginn Jr they should make some beautiful music together. Plus their depth at the RB position could be as powerful as a daisy cutter. Pittman and the talented Chris Wells. The defense boasts some serious talent and are replacing every starter from last year. But they should fit right in as the buckeye’s will be stout against the run.
Player to watch: Ted Ginn Jr., WR/KR

3. Miami- The defense is incredible. I mean Brandon Meriweather is like whoa and Phillips garners some All-American considerations himself. They have size, speed and depth. If their offense can get down the field and score more often then they would be unstoppable. But I don’t think it can. The offensive line doesn’t appear to be any better than last year’s debacle.
Player’s to watch: Brandon Meriweather, FS

4. Texas- The national champs return some key starters from last year’s squad and boast a ridiculously deep running back chart. The defensive cupboard is hardly
bare with a very good DE tandem of Crowder and Robinson. QB is the issue. VY was a legend and won’t be replaced. Who will step up and deliver for the longhorns when the game is on the line? Jevan Snead or Colt McCoy?
Player to watch: Jamaal Charles, RB

5. Auburn- Should be better than last year with the talent they have now. QB Cox returns and gets to hand the rock off to Irons and throw to Courtney Taylor who should regain his 2004 form. Key match-up is LSU on Sept 16th. If they beat them in Auburn then they may be undeafeted.
Player to watch: Kenny Irons, RB

6. LSU- Things change if they lose vs. Auburn in the 16th. See above. They need to settle the QB situation. It’s a rough go when your starting QB has to look over his shoulder everytime he throws a pick or makes a bad pass. The RB situation is a bit iffy as both RB’s return after torn ACL’s. The defense will be as always, fucking good. Plus they will be able to focus a bit more on football as last year was a bad year off the field for the Tigers.
Player to watch: Laron Landry, FS

7. Cal - Looks like Nate Longshore will be the QB and this is important because they need a settled QB situation. The RB situation is a wrap because RB Marshawn Lynch is a Heisman candidate from jump street. O-line is their main issue as they lost two key starters last year. Plus the secondary is a bit in-experienced. Take the over when they play.
Player to watch: Marshawn Lynch, RB

8. Florida- You can thank the schedule for this ranking. With the talent they have all over the place they should be competing for a national championship. The D finished 9th last year and only gets better this year. Leak goes into his final year with the lingering question. Can he master the spread offense and take this team to a title game? We’ll see.
Players to watch: Brandon Siler, LB

9. West Virginia- RB Steve Slaton could be the next Heisman Trophy winner. This guy runs like the wind and I’m sure Rich Rodriguez knows it. QB Pat White is the second fastest guy on this WVU squad. The two together are going to get national attention by October.
Player to watch: Pat White, QB

10. Michigan- It’s all about Henne and Hart. Henne can take his team to the next level if he raises his completion % and Hart can also make a huge impact if he stays on the field. Injuries have plagued him and the knock is he can’t take the pounding. The maize and blue have a re-built defense and CB Leon Hall leads the secondary that can stop teams with their speed.
Player to watch: Steve Breaston, WR/KR

11. Florida State- Too much speed and talent on the offensive side to struggle like last year. The root problem was the O-line which looks to be fixed. Bobby Bowden knows hot to re-vitalize a program.
Player to watch: Lorenzo Booker, RB

12. Louisville- Cards are looking for their first BCS appearance this year and have the talent to grab it. Led by QB Brian Brohm and RB Mike Bush the offense is just as explosive as anyone else’s.
Player to watch: Mario Urrutia, WR

13. Oklahoma- I think they are a year away from being the monster that they were but this year’s Sooners are going to be very good. The QB situation is stable now with Paul Thompson and Adrian Peterson is healthy. The defense is just Gnarls Barkley and no one is going to want to play in Norman.
Player to watch: Rufus Alexander, LB

14. Georgia- The favorite to replace current Falcon DJ Shockley is tough as nails QB Joe Tereshinski. All depends on his arm and leadership. The Dawgs have a deep RB chart and a biting defense that coach Mark Richt refers to as “physicality at it’s peak”. Ok Mark, ok.
Player to watch: Quentin Moses, DE

15. Clemson- Real nice mix of players, a good coach and serious talent at various skill positions (MLB, WR) can equate to a nice season for the Tigers of Clemson.
Proctor has to prove himself right off the bat with games against BC and FSU.
Player to watch: James Davis, RB

16. Notre Dame- Not a top ten team. Simply not. The hype is astounding but the team doesn’t match the hype. The corners are average, limited pass rush, there is no depth at any important skill position. Other than Michigan this team beat no one with a pulse. 2008 is the Irish’s year. The talent coming in combined with this crop of freshman is enough to give Weis a boner.
Player to watch: Brady Quinn, QB

17. Penn State- Two guys coming back from devastating injuries (WR Derrick Williams & LB Paul Posluszny) are key to how far the Nittany Lions go. With a favorable schedule they can make some noise in the rankings.
Player to watch: Paul Posluszny, LB

18. Iowa- The talent is there but will take too long get going. Young and inexperienced at LB and CB the Hawkeyes may be practicing for a title shot next year.
Player to watch: Drew Tate, QB

19. Arizona State- D gave up 29.9 points a game last year and a whooping 468.8 yards per game. The offense can fly with anyone in the nation but won’t win jack without some defense.
Players to watch: Zach Miller, TE

20. Nebraska- Defensive front seven is as good as any and now that QB Zac Taylor has a clue this team could sneak up on some people. Certainly a 9-3 season is within reach.
Player to watch: Maurice Purify, WR

21. Tennessee- Speed, speed, speed. Few teams can match the speed and atheleticism of this year’s Vols but will that translate into wins? Maybe a year away from a top ten team.
Player to watch: Jayson Swaine, WR

22. Virginia Tech- It’s all about the D. The blitzing, attacking style of D Beamer runs should be enough to compete in the ultra competitive ACC.
Player to watch: Kam Chancellor, CB

23. Oregon- Waiting for sophomore Jonathan Stewart to emerge. If he does the Ducks could have a really good year. If he doesn’t for whatever reason it could go south quick. Although I do like the depth with Terrell Jackson and Jeremiah Johnson. But neither I don’t think are a feature back. It has to be Stewart. He can pound and is nimble enough to break free.
Player to watch: Patrick Chung, LB/DB

24. Georgia Tech- Few ACC teams can beat you with a passing game like these yellow jackets can. That’s rare for their league but a few holes in the secondary and no RB depth might hurt them down the stretch.
Player to watch: Calvin Johnson, WR

25. Colorado- Hawkins has this team maybe a year or two away from a top ten appearance. As of right now theyhave some holes on offense but the D is coming together nicely and will keep them in a lot games.
Player to watch: J.J Billingsley, DB

Wow...Notre Dame not even in the top 15 and Miami at 3?

And USC at 1? You don't lose your top 3 offensive players and just come right back at the same level. All that talent at WR means nothing if nobody can throw to them. And their defense carries nothing. Last year was all shootouts, and this year shouldn't be any different.

Jay Scott said...

no love for Texas Tech?

thejaywhite said...

notre dame 16...youre an idiot...and i stand by this statement ..you are letting your hate of this program dictate your poll....and this makes your poll laughable..im sure you know more than every major writer in north america though...

its not like every writer LOVES notre dame..just as many hate them ...yet you would never see ND not in the top 6....

There corners might be average compared to top ten teams but compared to the rest of the country they are elite....

ND will score 40 a game on teams and most teams cant keep up...9 wins minimum, and that would have them finish the season in the top 8...but yet you have them 16th.

thejaywhite said...

jaywhite is half sorry for calling you an idiot...

ebntx said...

good job, el pad...i agree with a lot of your picks, but of course you are not going to make everyone happy.

thejaywhite said...
yet you would never see ND not in the top 6....

that is a true statement if i ever saw one...nd is exactly where they belong, if even there. they have proven nothing and do not deserve all the hype they are getting...they lose at least 5 games this year...sad but someone still puts them in a bowl

hook 'em horns

proven nothing?..9-3 in a BCS bowl...lost to a tough ohio state team...lost to USC on a BS a blwon call and got robbed by michigan state

they proved a lot

Isiah Thomas said...

Just like to point out I predicted a 30 pt Team USA win over Germany, they won by 20.

Los said...

Don't worry, JFreak and Jaywhite - I'm sure Notre Dame won't fall out of the top 10 until, at the earliest, after their 4th loss.

thejaywhite said...

If notre dame loses 4 games then feel free to unlock your doors and let the wives and sisters out cause jwhite will promise to not sleep with dem eh

whocares said...

El Pad,

I agree with most of the rankings. Miami 3? Interesting.


And congratulations to Notre Dame for losing to some great teams last year! Who did you beat?

jugdish said...

FF draft: all the pros that were listed for doing a draft on line are actually negatives...no time limit? You need a time limit for a draft. Who is going to read over all these posts over however many days to pick out the draft picks covering 15 rounds? That is much more trouble than it is worth. I'd join the league, but I'm already in 5 other leagues right now.

Notre Dame: How did they not prove themsevles last year? They gave USC their toughest game outside of Vince Young, and they always have one of the toughest schedules, if not the toughest in the nation.

Beth82678 said...

I love the ND argument :-) so let me add some fuel to it. In today's Atlanta paper one of the columnists starts off his article like this:

"One team that will play at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday has demonstrated the capacity to beat strong opposition, and it isn’t Notre Dame. One team has proved it can stop a good offense, and it isn’t Notre Dame. One team seems equipped to win this hugely ballyhooed game, and it isn’t Notre Dame.

Notre Dame is No. 2 in the Associated Press poll and No. 1 according to The Sporting News, but at some point a disinterested observer must ask: Exactly what did the Irish do to merit such effusion? Notre Dame didn’t beat a single team ranked in the final AP poll last season. When last seen, it yielded 617 yards to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. Yes, it has the newest anointed genius in the coaching fraternity and a quarterback of the first rank, but isn’t it true that the biggest noise the Irish have made under Charlie Weis came in a loss?"

thejaywhite said...

michigan was top 15 when notre dame beat them last season..just cause they didnt end the season top 25 isnt notre dame fault..


and all you people keep saying ND has no offense well so the fuck what..they are an offensive team at the moment..they simply outscore people..brady quinn throws for 500.....who cares if notre dame gives up 30..they score 50

i think the real question is who can stop NDs offense

El Padrino said...

ok let me defend myself here:

usc is more talented on dfense this year than offense so once booty settles in and everything clicks you may see them dominate again

Texas Tech-- ah maybe they'll slide in the 20-25 area but as of now i liked Colorado more

notre dame beat no one with a pulse last year except michigan
the defense is very suspect and they have no depth at the star positions...what if Tom the safety gets hurt or the RB or even god forbid *gasp* Quinn!! The talen is a year away. Some previews have them finishing 18th....8-4 sounds good

miami 3 because of the defense
folks it's nfl ready
that D could stop the bottom half of the nfl's offense and i think they beat FSU in two weeks

El Padrino said...

for the record i hate miami
it kileld me to rank them 3

El Padrino said...

good article beth

Los said...

Nice work by Notre Dame to lose to a 5-6 team at home last season. Please explain to me how great Michigan State up until the Notre Dame game. That game alone should've eliminated them from BCS contention.

THE CHAMP. said...

DUKE IS AWESOME BABY!!!

Love,

Dicky V.

temwr said...

If I am ranking them I rank ND 13.

You had them 16, so we are on the same page there.

They got crushed...absolutely crushed by OSU in that BCS game. At no point during that game did anyone think OSU was going to lose that game.

Cal gave USC a scare two years ago, I guess they should have started last years poll at number 3.

ND is still a year away. They are a top 15 team in my eye and that is something to be damn proud of. But Top 5?? That is just laughable at this point. If they go down to G Tech and lay a thumping on them then we can talk about moving them up, but no way in hell should they start top 5.

whocares said...

jaywhite,

any team with a decent defense can stop ND's offense. You just have to play one...

temwr said...

Oh and for you OSU fans out there, expect Ginn to have a so-so year. Defenses will double team him and Tressle will just say "OK then I'll just throw to someone else and beat the crap out of you that way...or just run the ball" Tressel will not force feed Ginn just to get him touches, he is too good of a coach, or thinks he is too good of a coach to do that. He will take what is given to him and it won't be anything to Ginn.

Expect 35-45 catches, 550-700yds. A good season, but not absolutely amazing.

Isiah Thomas said...

outscoring people won't take you all the way - just look at USC last year, they couldn't get that last half yard and ended up gakking it up on defense.

And ND couldn't outscore USC to beat them. ND got extremely lucky to beat Michigan also, a Henne fumble on the goal line and Schmardzjia caught a tipped pass for a TD....

ND is vastly overrated. thejaywhite, they get into a bowl game automatically with 9 wins, thats why they schedule all 3 service academies....

ND got SMOKED by OSU last season, it wasn't close. I stand by my prediction they will lose at least 2 of their first 4 and 4 overall.

Seriously, this needs to be discussed. Jeff Samarzdjia (sp)...the guy....SUCKS. Repeat...SUCKS. Just awful. He will FAIL MISERABLY in the NFL. If any team drafts him high I feel bad for them. He should stick to baseball.

THE CHAMP. said...

This is why I hate college football. All of this "well last year they did this...." crap is just that, crap. Players graduate, new unknown/unproven freshman come in, guys transfer, guys get in trouble with the law, etc. It all ads up to one big "who the fuck knows what's going to happen." You can't base ranking on last year. Who cares who they beat last year or how one player did. Maybe he had an easy class schedule, maybe this year his tutor isn't going to write all of his papers for him. Maybe the freshman won't adjust to being away from home or deal well with the pressure.

On top of that add in that the NCAA won't get there head out of their asses, cut D1 A down to 50-60 teams, force them to only play each other and not community colleges, and put in a play-off system. If they did that I would get more interested in college football.

Isiah Thomas said...

re: FFL draft on the blog/time limit

Autopick sucks. Getting everyone to agree on a time for a live draft and be available probably isn't doable. If everyone can't get together and do a live draft nor do we want an autopick then doing it here is the next best option. Granted it would prob. be a clusterfuck but oh well.

Judge - you can do a 6th team for the love of god.

temwr said...

I don't think Miami is top 3. They have an entire new staff (except head coach)and it will take some time for them to come around. Too bad they don't have time.

Week 1: Flordia State
Week 2: Hellen Keller School for the Blind Deaf and Dumb..er I mean Flordia A&M
Week 3: at Louisville

It would not shock me to see Miami sitting at 1-2 after 3 weeks.

By the end of the season they should be playing like a top 5 team, but that will be too little too late and right now they aren't a top 5 team, they need time.

Isiah Thomas said...

I really hope Michigan sucks this year so Lloyd Carr gets the boot. They get too much talent to lose 3 games a year.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm not sold on Louisville, lotta hype there, I think Miami will crush them.

Isiah Thomas said...

I don't think Papi's heart problems have been discussed here....

just wondering, does anyone know if irregular heartbeat is a side effect of steriod/hgh use? Papi was done when he was cut by Minn then sprang to life in Boston. Granted it could be due to being in a new organization, new approach to hitting, having Manny protect him, etc. But it'd be naive to dismiss the roids claim altogether.....

El Padrino said...

zeke
i like carr but i have to agree with you on this one
they are talented enough to win 10 games

miami, i hear the arguments
but if they come out of Sept undeafeated......uh-oh

roids can never be counted out this day and age

sad!

Beltran for MVP!

THE CHAMP. said...

can we start a new website to promote legalizing steroids in pro sports? Baseball is so effing boring without them. If it's legal and everyone can do it than who cares? Just put a line in the record books and mark everything "in the steroid era"

anonymous said...

wasnt that called the XFL?

THE CHAMP. said...

No it was called Mark Mcgwire vs. Sammy Sosa vs. Barry Bonds vs. the entire NFL.

a one hop ground ball to the 3rd baseman for an easy out isn't very fun to watch. unless of course it's a-rod playing 3rd. then at least theres a chance that he bounces it off the back of his glove for the error.

MLB....I LOVE THIS GAME.

anonymous said...

bottom line.. they definitely need to make an all-drugs league.

or at least an All-Drug Team voted on by coaches and players.

i believe this has been brought up before as well..

The Rev said...

Live draft... I say you have a live draft, and whoever does not show up gets to autopick during the live draft. Yahoo can make that happen for you. That's the best route.

Papi... I've never heard irregular heartbeat linked to steriod use. I personally get some irregular heartbeats occasionally, but that's more related to me not taking my thyroid pills.

ND... I gotta hand it to ElPad for putting it out there. At the end fo the season, we can all go back to his blog entry and get on him for being wrong or he can get on us for being right. That's the beauty of this site.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd like to go on record and stand with El Pad on the ND issue.

I say 4 losses.

Isiah Thomas said...

Does anyone bet on football?

El Padrino said...

i bet on everything
i am a degenerate

ebntx said...

Isiah Thomas said...
I'd like to go on record and stand with El Pad on the ND issue.

i stand with my prediction of 5 losses, but 4 is just as well...that should finally keep them out of a bowl

Isiah Thomas said...

I placed my first CFB bet last night. It was emotional.

Isiah Thomas said...

that would be first bet of this season....

Martin VanNostrand said...

Bet on football? not me. I won't bet on the number of deuces my 2 year old will drop in a day and I own that catagory. The Royals have better record than my wagering history.

I would do the FFL league but I will be in a 3rd world country for 3 weeks in the fall with rare access to e-mail and zero time to mess with my roster. Sorry to leave you guys hanging. Wish I could do it.

JFreak said...

Martin, I'm sure I speak for the others in the FFL when I say that I could care less if you can't change your roster, and actually would prefer it, because it might give me a slight advantadge.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

So, let's stop blowing each other and get a time for this damn draft set.

Isiah Thomas said...

Martin...I agree that New Jersey is the butthole of America, but I wouldn't classify it as a 3rd world country....

Martin VanNostrand said...

Exactly-why do it if those three weeks of non movement could keep me from winning Rev's TO jersey?

Just read Sheridan's piece of crap article Zeke mentioned. Based on his writing Spain should be able to buy the Sonics, use their national team as the players and easily destroy the Celtics record for most consecutive championships. He is out there. Reminds me of one of those extreme leftist types that covers their ears and refuses to listen to anothers point of veiw. He's drunk his "USA hoops sucks" brainwash kool aid so long he actually believes it.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Lol...That's funny as my connecting leaves from Newark. Home of Naughty By Nature and an international airport.

Cam said...

thejaywhite said...
"If notre dame loses 4 games then feel free to unlock your doors and let the wives and sisters out cause jwhite will promise to not sleep with dem eh"

I think we're all safe either way. Aren't you in a slump because of your bad karma?

Martin VanNostrand said...

To the ladies OPP means somethin different

temwr said...

I always think about betting on football then decide I'd rather keep my money and buy beer and pizza.

thejaywhite said...

ohhh making fun of ND for not outscoring USC...well USC had what 11 starters who will be in the NFL..they are a once in a generation football team!!

and as for backups at skill positions..their top WR went down last season and smirdzha stepped up nicely..and RBs are a dime a dozen at elite schools...

Los said...

TheJayWhite,

I hope that you actually went to Notre Dame or have family that went there ... Nothing like a fan who has no relationship with the team-whatsoever (like not living in New York and being a Yankees fan).

Martin VanNostrand said...

FFL - Amigo's, after a delicious Mountain Dew and about ten minutes of contemplation I decided to join the league for the good of LOV. Screw my extended absence. If it results in last place it was all done for the advancement of humankind. VIVA!

Isiah Thomas said...

martin v, the commish can adjust your team in your absence...

Martin VanNostrand said...

Jaywhite might have religious connections. There is a NotreDame cathedral in Quebec. Or Montreal.
I think.

thejaywhite said...

my dad played at notre dame went on to be a nominee for player of the year in the cfl

we get season tickets eveyr other year from the lottery

jugdish said...

Rudy White?

thejaywhite said...

Hate rudy....Rudy is also not a true story elite athletes will NEVER EVER EVER welcome a try hard no talent guy who makes them look bad..

ask any ND alumni..they dont like that movie..i hate it

jugdish said...

so it never happened? it was all made up?

jugdish said...

I saw Rudy Ruttiger (not Sean Astin) speak at a conference back in May...if his story is not true, he has quite the little scam going...:)

temwr said...

Does anyone else think it would be hilarious if they did a movie or a cartoon where some medieval wizard brought back English Knights of the Future to help them fight some War.

That wizard would end up bringing back Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Mix Alot(for even more comedy) and Sir Ian McKellen...I bet Sir Ben Kingsley would take it seriously too.

Yeah that'd be awesome.

JFreak said...

I live in Indiana, so I get a pass.

Martin VanNostrand said...

As for the draft I know autopicks suck but I'm fine with whatever. I can do it most any night. It shouldn't take more than 2 hours if done on yahoo.

thejaywhite said...

parts of rudy were embelished...
like players did not go threaten to quit for him to dress...



the top players hated him his entire time there

Cam said...

What? They embellish parts of sports movies? I had no idea. So, the Invincible guy lived in a place that wasn't called South Philly? Unbelievable.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Sir Mix A Lot would take his fist full of steel and battle everyone in a rhyme contest. Would this be the sequal to Black Knight only they couldn't get Martin Lawrence? He was busy making Rebound 2 Electric Boogaloo.

jugdish said...

I don't remember the players threatening to quit, I just remember them offering up their spot on the roster for that game. Either way, I guess you're saying that that didn't happen?

whocares said...

jaywhite,

Molesting women is one thing, but talking smack about Rudy? Well, that's just downright wrong.

The guy was five foot nothin', a hundred and nuthin' and he suited up with the best team in the land!! Oh yeah, and he got to hang out with Roc.

Isiah Thomas said...

the latest Simmons article...eh.

Every time I see the "this article appears in the XXXXX edition of ESPN the mag" I know its going to suck.

Some of his 10 points were funny but overall its like the man has gotten to him.

JFreak said...

So...the draft...sometime early next week? Night time or day time?

Martin VanNostrand said...

I saw that heading on the Simmons article and decided to wait until the magazine arrives. It's a tough move. Feels like lent but not spiritual at all.

I would say do the draft at night as there is always a random chance some work may need to be done. Who am I kidding though. I will make my schedule work around it.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I just looked at the WWL headlines and on first glance I read "Matisyahu takes BP with Yankees".

That would have been a much more enjoyable read than the actual headline about Matsui.

Stevie Y's retirement ceremony is January 2, 2007.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I vote for a nighttime draft.

ebntx said...

nightime draft sounds good to me as well

nd still sucks

jaywhite-
so are you going to give up your fathers's name so we can look it up or not? i call bs. anyone else?

anonymous said...

Tx - hey, give him time to go search the ND rosters during back then and find someone with the last name White. give the man a damn minute, will ya??

second... Yzerman.. stevie Y.. i think im getting the sniffles right now... and i swear it aint from him retiring.. i swear...

oh screw it, i'll be in tears that night.

anonymous said...

also, as stated earlier i believe... Sheridan put out yet *another* column where he rags on the US for no real reason. why cant he just say "well theyve got a long way to go, and theyre not gonna roll, but at least we seem to be headed in the right direction" or something similiar.

why does everybody have to be over-the-edge outspoken to get attention? this is like Stephen A Smith... just talking loudly about nothing just to stir the pot. (man i hate him)

different strokes i guess....

at least someone like Barkley is entertaining at least..

temwr said...

Yeah you can add Sir Charles to the awesome movie/book/cartoon idea. Haha, he'd beat the hell out of Sir Elton.

temwr said...

Nighttime is tough for me, but I will try my best to work my schedule to fit it.

Worst case I auto draft.

The Rev said...

So as anyone else been to you-know-who's blog lately, and seen that he has actually posted three days in a row? We must have been holding him back.

And now, we actually have our first case of someone who posts over here posting a comment over there without it getting removed. Or at least doing it under his own name.

Just thought it was interesting.

Isiah Thomas said...

judge getting dangerously close to crossing a line...

Lemme tell you a little story about a man named jugdish. He posted on a certain man's ex-intern's blog and, was later found in the trunk of a '96 Ford Contour in the bottom of the mighty mississip. :(

Jay Scott said...

he shall missed...

anonymous said...

commence ball dipping...

temwr said...

Don't look now but the Pirates are only 15.5 games out of the wild card...or close to that.

temwr said...

Jug can not be faulted for a trip to Lord Voldemort's blog. I hope I spelled that right, I did not read those books.

In fact, I don't read books. They are an outdated form of entertainment replaced by TV and movies and blogs.

jugdish said...

You know you all still go there too...:)

temwr said...

Yeah everyone went and read your post so they must go too.

Pot...kettle....black.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

my cookware is stainless, thank you.

When they found that guy at the bottom of the river, was there a computer mouse stuck in his cold, dead hand?

stopping by to read DB is one thing, posting is another, I'm with iam....

teabagging is the penalty....

Isiah Thomas said...

it is my day, but since I did the weekend update I figured someone else could put something up....

anyone up for it?

Isiah Thomas said...

did we get the FFL up to 10 yet?

jugdish said...

If you're going to read his blog, you shouldn't be afraid to post. Besides, I was right on the money. Rambo is not a Juke Box Hero!

Derogatory comments to the DB should be allowed

The Rev said...

I fully admit I still go there to read. It's becoming like a train wreck. I have to watch. I'm actually entertained by how bad it's becoming.

For the record, I really don't have a problem with anyone posting over there. As long as you contribute enough comments here, you can do what you want.

But you do open yourself up to teabagging threats and ridicule. That's just the way it is in our lawless society.

As far as today's post, Iam, Jfreak, or Mound can step up. I say if there's nothing by 3pm ET, or 12 noon Pacific, Zeke can step up.

Who wants it?

jugdish said...

I fully expect threats...I just did not expect someone to volunteer their nuts so quickly. That worries me some.

Martin VanNostrand said...

We are still at 9 with FFL teams.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'll be away from my computer at noon PST so if something's not up we might be stuck with this post...doesn't bother me

jugdish said...

Did y'all decide when the draft is?

Isiah Thomas said...

I don't see a need to post at DB's place. The guy has lost it. His pathetic attempt to compete with us is sad.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I believe the tea bagging penalty was instated sometime within the last two weeks. There was at least mention of it in the bylaws. iam is the enforcer.

jugdish said...

You can't have bylaws in a lawless society...isn't that one of the rules?

anonymous said...

i am V (for Vendetta).

i killed you with a teabag while you slept. i hit you with it before you even posted there.. i could feel it. it wont be painful.. im sorry.

although i do have to admit, out of all the shit that DB posts.. commenting on a Rambo post is in the gray area... i almost want to let Jug slide, but rules are rules and deez nutz are deez nutz.

youre dead to me.

Spaceman Spiff said...

did el pad forget about the suspensions for Miami. Something like that can cost them the game against FSU

Isiah Thomas said...

that was one of the founding principles of LOV and the penalty was teabagging, sorry.

THEY AIN'T CHIN NUTS.

jugdish said...

You're just upset that I had the nuts to post there and you didn't...so now you want to put your nuts on me. Its understandable.

The Rev said...

"deez nutz are deez nutz"

That might have to go to the top of the page.

Someone step up and post. I could, but I just handled two guest columns. But I could step up if it is needed.

Isiah Thomas said...

judge don't get your panties in a bunch...

We don't post there bc we don't want to...we've moved on.

Take your punishment and move on.

Isiah Thomas said...

move on meaning get over it.

jugdish said...

Sackmaster...when is the fantasy draft scheduled?

I second the motion Steve....

and I just posted a new post......

whocares said...

A lawless society with bylaws? this is getting deep.

Is this all of them?

1. You are not allowed to mention "the name that shall not be mentioned."

2. You are not allowed to post on "the name that shall not be mentioned"'s blog.

3. There will be five weekly bloggers. No more, no less.

4. If the five bloggers see fit, they will allow guest columnists to post. Only after "the five" approve.

5. You must continually denounce laws of any kind in this lawless society.

6. Breaking any of these laws will result in a five minute teabag from iamunstoppable.

Isiah Thomas said...

7) Breaking any of the above will result in " (Insert Name) Loves the Cock" (in bold and large type) headlining all posts for a period of at least one weeks time, with longer penalties depending on the severity of the transgression.

The Rev said...

Actually, the "five" do not have to approve the guest columns.

Only one does.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Can we have the draft at like 4:15? I get off work at 4. I'd hate to hold things up like that.

anonymous said...

jug - i serve your punishment cold, like thanksgiving leftovers. im sorry if youre not comfortable with it, but it hurts me more than it hurts you (like a parent/child thing).

also, i dip my balls on you for a little bit of my pleasure too.

ya never know what a cool breeze between your legs can do unless you try it.

wait.. what?..

or maybe its a power trip.

The NOVA Report said...

Who the hell is Kam Chancellor? I am a VT fan, and this guy's not even on my radar.

The players to watch for the Hokies are Xavier Adibi, Vince Hall, Chris Ellis and Aaron Rouse. Brandon FLowers and Victor "Macho" Harris" are the corners.

Just sayin'.
