Luginbill’s Got Our Back?

January 16, 2009

This was one of those moments where you are watching ESPN, and as Howard and Stewart are listing off their top 50 wide receivers coming back in 2009, you want to throw a brick or at least a Pringle at the TV screen. Then, something happens and you realize yet again that the first letter stands for “entertainment.” Luginbill comes to the rescue… Tom Fucking Luginbill.

A Golden Shower

December 25, 2008

I can’t believe porn is now acceptable on basic cable. ESPN must be desperate for ratings.

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but after a day of surfing the web, I have a few links of interest to you all.

Quick Tidbit…

September 1, 2008

I generally don’t endorse ANYTHING by ESPN, but I do use their College Football page a lot for general information on the season. One thing that I just came across was a bowl prediction page by Bruce Feldman and Mark Schlabach.

Feldman: GATOR BOWL— ND VS. Miami (Fla.)

Schlabach: SUN BOWL— ND VS. Colorado

I just found it interesting that the two teams that they project us to play are former foes from the late eighties and early nineties – the last time that ND was REALLY good and consistent.

Here are a couple of reasons why I would love either of these matchups regardless of the non-elite status of the Gator and Sun Bowls.

(What the hell would I do without Youtube?)

Phantom Menace. Bill Walsh hates ND.

Save Jimmy Johnson’s ass for me.

You’re Looking Live…

July 30, 2008

On July 21st ESPN returned to form with the 2008 premier of College Football Live. Although I have been very critical of ESPN in the past, I can honestly say I was dripping with anticipation. I set my DVR to record College Football Live everyday. The season is is just a few LONG weeks away and I am getting pumped for not just the Fighting Irish, but for all of College Football.

Sadly, but almost quite expectantly, I was disappointed from the start. This show is a fucking disaster. I am not going to bitch about their coverage of Notre Dame. Every Irish fan should know by now how The World Wide Leader covers the Fighting Irish. But, I will say one thing… Maurice Crum is definitely still on the team.

There is so much wrong with this show that it is hard to single out one thing that really sticks out as being the most dastardly (Molly Qerim talking, is certainly one of them). However, the show and its writers are only interested in about 15 teams out of 120 in 1-A. With so many story lines available to them, sucking Tim Tebow’s cock seems to be the greatest topic on hand.

There is hope for all of you TRUE College Football fans out there and it comes in the form of something delicious that you may already enjoy. EDSBS Live! As I’m writing this post, I am listening to the 7/29 broadcast. It’s already more informative and entertaining than anything ESPN and its stable of “personalities” has to offer. They have Sporting News writer and Irish hater Matt Hayes as a guest, and it puts Matt Hayes in a entirely new light. He actually sounds funny and has a real passion for this sport and is far more articulate than Bob “I Learned How To Milk A Cow At Purdue” Griese. (Peter Bean just called Hayes a motherfucker. Fantastic.)

Now for a lot of you out there you may have a certain preference for some of your media outlets, and I realize podcasts and internet shows are less than spectacular without awesome graphics and interactive fan polls about “The Cooler Helmet”. So maybe a little pressure is in order. Call, e-mail, and pester the fuck out of one network that may have the balls to put these guys on the tube and let me sit my ass on the coach and choke on a cherry twitzler in laughter…

I understand that this may be a tall order. But, the possibilities of a 60 minute show on TV about College Football that is completely “R” rated and over the top is too enticing to push aside as an early morning psychedelic freak out. I also expect some sort of monetary reimbursement if this happens, so be prepared to open you fucking wallet up Orsen.

Until then, enjoy their online show and get yourself prepared for the season.

Somewhere Deep Underground In Northwest Ohio

February 7, 2008

I have a few minutes before the Nazis (A.K.A.- wife and dogs) realize that I have let my gaurd down. Here are a few tidbits that were just declassified….

* Terrelle Pryor is a media whore. It’s true. And Buckeye fans should be outraged at Pryors father for delaying his choice… which was OSU last night. Bucknakedbrutus- this means you bitch!

* If you are one of those insecure types who have to be right all the time and can not argue, nay, debate about why you are so right. You are probably pretty pissed at ESPN for giving the Irish a #8 ranking for the incoming class of 2008. Calm down. ESPN is an entertainment giant and since no player that they give head to committed to the Irish today (KLM hates ESPN…remember that), no way were they going to give the Irish any big props. On the reality flipside Lemming, Rivals, and Scout have us at #2 right behind the MAMMOTH class of Alabama. They signed 33 players. Holy Shit!

*All 23 of ND’s commits signed with the Irish today. So, no news is good news.

I have to get. I hear loud thumps coming from the outside of the war room. Must be those fucking Nazis again. Man I really hate those guys.

Updating For Updates Sake

January 23, 2008

My apologies. Things have been really slow on all fronts and I don’t quite feel like regurgitating all of the “stories” surrounding Irish football. I have noticed a lot of hits lately on the site, and realize that all the die-hards are out and seeking every nugget of news there is. Quite frankly, there hasn’t been much. The Dana Jacobson story has been well versed, but still, no definitive video evidence has been displayed. (Although I hear that she/ESPN has issued an apology).

What is going on, is WAR. With two weeks left until Signing day, college coaches are pulling out all the stops to keep, receive, and poach prospects. I am purposely staying away from speculation on certain recruits because most of the reports out there are bullshit.

Take Tom Luginbill at ESPN for instance… This guy is a hack. ESPN is now in the recruiting game and have pushed Luginbill, Craig Haubert, and their “150” on us as if they were Mike Frank, Tom Lemming, or even Mike Farrell. They may be able to evaluate talent… maybe. But everything else is a load of crap. They are the leader in rumor-mongering. Luginbill does not talk to any of these recruits, except for the players that were in the Under-Armour All-American Game. If I called or e-mailed him right now and said “Word is, Thaddeus Brown has talked teammates Dayne Crist and Anthony McDonald into decommitting from Notre Dame and teammate Wes Horton into decommitting from USC and then, together, sign with Eastern Michigan on signing day”, he would turn it into a story. He is a douche and his prognostications should be treated as such. So pay NO attention to the “Jonas Gray might visit Michigan” stuff. Not gonna happen. ESPN is a corporate giant that is simply just looking for another way to generate more profit. Whores.

Speaking of signing day, I will be posting the 2008 Subway Domer Recruiting Spectacular a day or two after. Look for a little bit more this year and Colonialhead will be adding his thoughts as well. (I assume). Also, if any of you have any questions that I might be able to answer about this years class, please e-mail me at subwaydomer26@gmail.com with your inquiries. I will answer them and publish them in the recruiting piece.

There will be a lot more to report on leading up to the spring game and even throughout the summer. I have PLENTY of Dick-Rod stuff lined up. That guy is truly an asshole. But, we need a pick-me-up. After a 3-9 season just remember, anybody can bounce back…

ESPN Sounds Surprisingly Sad

September 18, 2007

I have not listened to what Mark “Mary Kay” May has said about the Irish. Nor do I want to. Actually I am sick of the coverage nationally of a season in despair. But that is what comes with being the most premier name in all of College Football. Ratings. With that said I did look upon 2 clips that ESPN provided on their website and it was surprisingly somber. Do they mourn us as well? The douche on Cold Pizza (or whatever its called now) didn’t even tempt to mock the Irish. Of course Mike Golic would see him in the hall and flat stomp his ass.
