GO BLUE!

Wow.....that didn't happen did it? 4 quarters and their season is over. No need to pretend "they've still got the Big 10 season and Rose Bowl to shoot for", unless they buy tix to watch the game - they ain't going to the Rose Bowl.

Unless they radically fix things then they'll be lucky to go 7-5. The ONLY bright spot for them is that Lloyd Carr will finally be shown the door. I would call for his resignation immediately but who would guide the ship? I guess since its sinking it wouldn't matter anyway.

Best case scenario would be to throw 10$ mil/year at Bill Cowher. I realize the chances of UM getting him are slim to none. Its time to start the search though.

You all know how much I love instant history (s), but you have to say this is one of the biggest upsets in sports history right? I'd rank the US over Russia "Miracle" game as the best but this has to be in the discussion. I'd put this up there with George Mason's run in the tourney 2 seasons ago.

There was some interesting baseball happenings this weekend - I'll let Mets fans speak for themselves.

Lebronze and Co win the TOA. I'm glad they won, you add D Wade and Brand to that team and they'll beat anyone by 25+. I'd bring up adding others like KG, Marrion, etc. but I don't think they're walking through that door. Either way, the US looks to have regained that swagger - mainly because of Kobe (ns).

For the record : Port Wine Cheese = B+

Well that's all I've got enjoy your Labor Day.

Don't forget my motto of kicking a man when he's down, have at it.

Give it a week before you say they go 7-5. Yeah the coach is a joke, but if they can do anything on defense the rest of the year, 10-2 is very possible. They still have a ton of talent, they just happened to take a team lightly to start the season. Which leads me to this...I don't get everyone calling this the biggest college football upset ever. App State is the 2-time defending I-AA champs, right? This would be the equivalent of this year's AAA baseball champs beating someone like the Tigers or Yankees in a one game format. While the odds are against them, it's not that far of a reach. Michigan will be alright.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

TE:

I might have one.




Port Wine cheese is an A+. Keep pumping it in. You'll see.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Ummmm.... Go Blue?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

In case anyone missed the last post, I told Zeke that I'm shitfaced.

Tyler said...

I think Keith has a point about the one game format. Anyone can beat a team in a one game format given the right circumstances. Not to bring it back to basketball, but in my opinion, Golden State beating the Mavs in a seven game series is way more of an upset. They didn't just beat them once, they beat them four times. Another one I'd put before this one is the Red Sox beating the Yankees four games in a row. I think Michigan took this game for granted and App State worked on some things in practice that came up huge in the game (i.e.-blocking FGs). Obviously Michigan's got a suspect D, but now they know they really have to work on it and they also need to go out and recruit some guys. But then again, I've had six beers, so it might still be the greatest upset in college football history. I look forward to it being the lead story on SportsCenter for the next two weeks (s).

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Holy Shit


Snakes On A Plane is hilarious!

AHHHHHHHHHahahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Clearly, Sox over Yanks in '04 is the biggest upset/choke in history. I won't even argue it. I watched every game.

Tyler said...

I'm telling you, SOAP is gold.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I had to turn it off.

If I'm in a situation where one of my friends gets bit in the ass by a fatally poisonous snake, I don't care, I'm sucking that poison out of his ass.

And fuck you all for thinking that's gay.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Am I the only one that absolutely flips out when they get the hiccups?

I mean replete with massive f-bombs and everything.

isiah thomas-holth said...

Luis Scoal was the MVP of the TOA?

WTF?

isiah thomas-holth said...

*Scola

isiah thomas-holth said...

App State is the 2-time defending I-AA champs,

Key words I-AA.

I fucking AA. UM had all summer to get prepared.

UM struggles with spread offenses with running QB's, and they were replacing a shitload of guys on D.

There is no excuse for that performance, they were lucky not to have lost by a greater margin.

I appreciate you seeing the glass half-ful (NS), but that was a pathetic....PATHETIC performance.

isiah thomas-holth said...

deke - FMZ bought the kakuahana (sp) brand.

Not bad, as it warmed up it got better.

welcome aboard deke!

isiah thomas-holth said...

re: 7-5...

obviously the D is suspect to say the least. But Hart didn't play much in the 2nd and begining of the 3rd.

Henne had a horrendous INT in or near the red-zone in the 3rd also and Minor had a horrific fumble.

Add that all together and 7-5 is not out of the question.

keith s said...

"obviously the D is suspect to say the least. But Hart didn't play much in the 2nd and begining of the 3rd.

Man, it was a bad game, it happens. A knee-jerk reaction is saying they will go 7-5. Now if they come back this week and lay an egg againse Oregon, then I would tighten the noose.
Fuck, they've got more talent this year than anyone in the Big 10 except maybe Penn State.

keith s said...

I have Kakauna right now, actually.

I like it best cold.

isiah thomas-holth said...

keef I hear you, but at this point "will they lay an egg" its more like "won't they lay an egg".

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"they've got more talent this year than anyone in the Big 10 except maybe Penn State."


Penn Sate? Really?

Are you retarded?

isiah thomas-holth said...

finally got a chance to watch Gameday...

the best they can do for the opening theme song is that played out cuntry band?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm going to bed.

Long day tomorrow.

keith s said...

I knew that would irk meiz

tem said...

UM wins the big 10 and goes to the Rose Bowl.

That's the way shit works.

tem said...

100% chance UM didn't even study film on App State. At best they looked at film for 1hr.

App State spent all summer prepping.

Having said that, this is the greatest college football upset of all time and UM should be embarrassed.

I'm just glad it wasn't my team.

tem said...

i must be the only one working today.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem, you're working?

tem said...

yes i am.

for a little bit.

then i am driving to cary, NC. which is essentially 8 more hours of work.

tem said...

i'm about ready to stop working though and start driving.

tem said...

i might just let zeke's post ride for tomorrow since i doubt many people will comment tonight/today.

El Padrino said...

of course, I'm prepared for that

El Padrino said...

the key is how his second start goes

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

And of course the fucking butt-Cubs win in dramatic fashion yesterday. We should be taking 1st place back today.

I hate the fucking Cubs

keith s said...

I had some Johnsonville hot Italian sausage at the tailgate Saturday.

keith s said...

with some onions and peppers. WOW.

keith s said...

"What we have to do in a short time here is become a more disciplined team, a smarter team and a team that executes better," Carr said.

That's your job, dipshit.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I can't stand Italian sausages

keith s said...

I picked up a TE off of waivers this morning, so I'm good now.

See, I knew ND would suck this year. I had zero expetations of greatness.

UM was supposed to be in the BCS Champion race.

El Padrino said...

Is harang the best kpet secret in baseball?

14-3? i had no clue

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I just think they're nasty.

And worst part is, my girlfriend's parents call them brats. I spit one out right in front of them once.

I was hoodwinked.

El Padrino said...

3-2 mets

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I think Harang almost won Cy Young last year.

He pitched 10 fucking innings against the Brewers this year.

keith s said...

Harang has been solid the last 2 years.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

* in 1 game

El Padrino said...

even fresh one's from Brooklyn?

next time a bet is on order I will lay those on the line, hopefully you will win and enjoy fresh made italian sausages

El Padrino said...

i know he's solid for a minute but no one ever mentions him

keith s said...

Ever had fresh kielbasa?

El Padrino said...

i dont know if i ever told you guys this but i put ketchup on my hot dog


*shaking head in shame

El Padrino said...

of course keef

there are many german and polish butchers in the area

El Padrino said...

7 in a row for petey

keith s said...

"See, I knew ND would suck this year. I had zero expetations of greatness"

But losing by 30, season opener, at home, to an unranked team, without a sniff of the endzone? There's low expectations, and then there's whoa, what the fuck just happened.

El Padrino said...

agreed, valid point

keith s said...

"i dont know if i ever told you guys this but i put ketchup on my hot dog"

-2 helmet stickers

El Padrino said...

-2 helmet stickers

I accept.

keith s said...

I don't know of any butchers near where I'm at. Well, unless you count the mexican guy with the cart on the corner as a butcher.

JFreak said...

"But losing by 30, season opener, at home, to an unranked team, without a sniff of the endzone?"

Sorry that ND scheduled an actual team for their opener to test themselves.

Guess they should have gone after someone like Youngstown St. or Akron. Oh wait, OSU already has those guys tied up. Guess ND will have to use some other creampuffs.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I use the ketchup also.

*standing proudly

JFreak said...

I do too.

What's the problem with ketchup?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

not sure

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

We ran out of steam.

El Padrino said...

i get frowned upon when i sau that usually, glad to hear i'm not alone

kodiac said...

-went home for the weekend and didn't get a chance to post on this fookin crazy upset on Saturday.

one of the biggest upsets I've ever seen, at least in Big-10 history. I mean, Bowling Green over the Gophs, WTF right?

kodiac said...

after the MI game (and the other Big 10 games had played out) I was actually kind of optomistic about our season. Well, until halftime that is.

El Padrino said...

what up KOD

Tyler said...

That draft took a long time. My team's a little weak at WR.

kodiac said...

not too much, just gearing up for some quality CL time.
-looks like your Mets are rebounding nicely.

isiah thomas-holth said...

EP - is it too late to get one of those dogs?

isiah thomas-holth said...

mustard only on dogs please.

isiah thomas-holth said...

Freak are you pissed that ND still sucks in Weis's 3rd season?

isiah thomas-holth said...

these nbc announcers seem to have quite a chub for Phil beating Tiger today.

JFreak said...

I wouldn't say "still". Granted, they may have been overrated and overhyped, but they still made it to BCS Bowls the past two seasons.

That being said, it's always disappointing when you're team isn't playing well.

keith s said...

"but they still made it to BCS Bowls the past two seasons."

And lost by a combined 75-34, so yeah, they deserved it.

isiah thomas-holth said...

Weis had his best success with Willingham's recruits.....I find this funny considering Willy got the book and Fatty got the 10 yr extension.

isiah thomas-holth said...

ND has special (read : extra easy) rules for making BCS games though....Weis hasn't done much really.

keith s said...

Weis is a guru.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

You know damn well that ND didn't deserve a BCS game last year.

isiah thomas-holth said...

That being said, it's always disappointing when you're team isn't playing well.


amen to that freak. 1 game and my team is d-o-n-e.

And the quotes coming out of Carr's mouth are alarming.

kodiac said...

I didn't see Carr's quotes. Brewster said that a little part of him died on Saturday...I thought that was a little bit much (considering we'll be lucky to get into any bowl game this year)

El Padrino said...

he's a old lost man

El Padrino said...

one dog coming up!

isiah thomas-holth said...

Keef had some, here they are:

"What we have to do in a short time here is become a more disciplined team, a smarter team and a team that executes better," Carr said.

"With a chance to win the game, we didn't execute a fundamental play -- a play that we have worked extremely hard at all fall," Carr said.

"You can't fault (Gingell) for those last two (blocked kicks)," Carr said. "He made two (field goals) and for a guy that has not been in games before, to go in there and kick two in a row in his first start is a very positive thing for him."

I think Carr hit up the early bird special at Nibbler's all summer then hit the sack by 5PM.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm sick of humidity.

I'm seriously contemplating loafing around in a pair of tighties.

kodiac said...

yeah, I see what you mean.

El Padrino said...

true kod, condolences

minnesota hockey is good

thanks
-on the plus side, it's about to become unGodly cold for the next 6 months.
-excuse me all, I'm going to go check out the roof

kodiac said...

yeah, that's true; but for some reason, I've never gotten into Gophers hockey that much. High School hockey is by far my favorite

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Don't jump Kod. We kid because we care.

keith s said...

Fuckin Delgado has an SB today? WTF???

kodiac said...

hahaha, thanks Meiz. On the plus side, my fantasy football team is stellar

(S)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Why am I still checking my FMLB team like it still matters?

kodiac said...

I think it's time for me to invest in a Nintendo Wii. I was playing it over the weekend, and it's completely addicting.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Fuck. Sheets is way off today. 5 BBs in 5.2IP so far.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I thought about getting a Wii. I know I'll get tired of it pretty quickly.

I'd rather get a PS3

keith s said...

I ended up canceling my PS3 order.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Philly Mick's killing shit today.

isiah thomas-holth said...

Phil is donkey punching Tiger.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"I ended up canceling my PS3 order."

It's still too pricey

kodiac said...

Since I'm a lazy piece of shit, I figure it's a good way to get some exercise. I played about 5 hours or drunken Wii on Saturday night with some old friends, and I'm so sore today I can barely move.

isiah thomas-holth said...

Phil needs to wear a sports bra....(ns)

isiah thomas-holth said...

the basic xbox360 price isn't too bad

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I love hearing Bobby Jones' voice.

I miss the days when they used to play old ass reruns of that instructional show with him on the Golf Channel

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The base 360 is a POS.

keith s said...

I don't like xbox

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I agree with Keith

kodiac said...

POS? Point of Sale?

isiah thomas-holth said...

piece of shit

kodiac said...

ah, that makes much more sense

isiah thomas-holth said...

I've never played PS2 or 3 so I can't compare.

I liked the 360 when I had it.

keith s said...

"POS? Point of Sale?"

I hope this was (s)

kodiac said...

Dead Like Me was a great show; I'm kinda bummed it only lasted 2 seasons (if that). Watching re-runs on Sci-fi, good times.

kodiac said...

I only saw POS back when I was a bank teller; but yeah, I knew it was something different. Sorry for the lack of (s)

Hi. My name is Isiah Thomas-Holth.
I am a caveman.

Tyler said...

When/how did the Dodgers get Loaiza?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Oh shit! I just noticed Dark Helmet is back. You were watching Comedy Central today, too. Weren't you?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Don't know. Baseball ref. doesn't even have it up.

keith s said...

The Dodgers claimed right-hander Esteban Loaiza off waivers from the Athletics on Wednesday, assuming nearly $8.5 million in guaranteed salary.

kodiac said...

I've never played PS2 or PS3 either.

(ns)

But then again, I am unfrozen caveman lawyer

keith s said...

The Dodgers assume the $1.08 million Loaiza is owed for the rest of this season, as well as his $7 million salary for 2008. Loaiza, 35, also has a $7.5 million club option for 2009 with a $375,000 buyout.



Fucking gross

Tyler said...

I looked it up on the preview page for the game on yahoo it says they picked him up off of waivers on Wednesday. Loaiza vs. Zambrano. Not good. I'm not that confident in Loaiza.

Tyler said...

That sounds like something the Dodgers would do. We're stupid. Loaiza still has massive neck problems.

keith s said...

Can Minnesota score some gottamn runs

Tyler said...

Wow, 78 degrees in Chi-town. That must be nice.

keith s said...

I fucking hate Carlos Delgado

kodiac said...

um, no, no we can't.

isiah thomas-holth said...

Phil is still an idiot.

keith s said...

I can't wait til it gets down to 95

Tyler said...

Hot dog time.

isiah thomas said...

I can't wait til it gets down to 95

I can't wait till November either.

kodiac said...

I'm just happy our lows are no longer in the 30's. Flirting with freezing in August is wrong on many levels.

Tyler said...

"I can't wait till November either."

Yeah, if can just go ahead and totally skip September, that would be great.

isiah thomas said...

I can't wait til it gets down to 95

I can't wait till November either.


*I can't wait FOR November either.

Tyler said...

Awesome, second pitch Soriano hits a homerun.

Tyler said...

Fucking Loaiza.

isiah thomas said...

its not too late for Phil to bungle this tourney away.

You can do it Phil!

Tyler said...

Furcal just threw one into the stands. This is not good.

isiah thomas said...

Phil is determined to throw this away, and I love it.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Doddamn it, Dodgers! Beat the fucking Cubs!

Tyler said...

They got a run Meiz, it's 1-1.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Kod-

Is it just me or has Mauer been very un-Mauer-like this year?

Tyler said...

Mauer's had a hamstring for most of the season.

Tyler said...

I don't even think he's played in their last 10 games.

kodiac said...

yeah, Mauer should be moved to 3rd base. He's one of the best defensive catchers in the league, but the way he hits, he should be playing 3rd with Redman as catcher (who's hitting a respectable .295, and is decent in the field). Punto is great defensively at third, but hitting under .200 as of a couple days ago. I'd move Punto to 2nd (Casilla is even worse at bat).
