2010 College Football Season
- 05-08-2010, 02:44 AM
Do you ever get tired of being so petulant? You must constantly walk around with a face like a cat's ass.
Haven't you noticed our little routine?
Step 1: You insult me.
Step 2: I counter.
Step 3: You cry like a toddler and throw a mini-tantrum on your keyboard.RTR.

Do you realize you're now defending yourself against the very insult you initially tossed my way? Let's review:
BitterBoy: "Looks like football is just another sport to you finally."
rubberring: "Who was able to find both the time and cash to go cheer his team on in person in the national title game?"
^^That's an interrogative sentence. You weren't mentioned. Yet you proceeded to protest an awful lot. Hmmm...
But hey, good luck with the sympathy ploy, poor broke college kid. Hope that works out for ya.RTR.

Seriously, you need to come out of the closet. You'll feel so much better about yourself. The self-loathing has to end. You're the AM version of George Rekers. If you disagree, then prove me wrong and try not to stare at the rent boy...
Can't do it, can you? It's okay, TT... it's all going to be okay.

The irony behind the bolded statement is outstanding. Its not my fault California is the poster child for failure, a case study in failure. Luckily, our whole country is going that direction, cant wait until we have a financial system collapse. I could rant about all these topics all day. It has nothing to do with overcompensating or anything. I do have chip on my shoulder, from watching everyone and everything descend into social, moral, and political ruin.

Your outlook is a bit too simplistic. California has the 7th largest economy in the world. So comparing your state's economic status to ours is apples and... carburetors.
The world descending into social, moral, and political ruin is nothing new. Almost every philosopher has addressed it over the last few thousand years. So the chip on the shoulder is a colossal waste of time.
You may be right on the irony thing. But probably not.
Or am I being ironic?

But California is actually slipping to around 8th. Texas would be right behind New York at 15. You can say, man, California is doing way better. But this is only considering GDP. Not the fact that Texas accounted for over 50% of the nations new jobs in 2009 if I recall and that our state economy is still growing while yours is withering and crashing. Your government budget crisis is what, $26 Billion? Selling landmarks was even considered a viable option. You just had a what, 32% tuition increase for your universities? Its like comparing apples and oranges...just one is bigger and is rotting from the inside out. If it wasnt for the large amount of succubus' that are the new immigrants in South Texas, we would run the show. I have data to basically prove their (illegal) expansion has been a cancer onto our state spending and budget.
Check this out though.
To not see the obvious decay of society in general is naive..but you do live in California by your own will. What can I expect from you. Its your job to be naive, superficial and stupid. Oh, and when you run your state into the ****ing ground, you all move to a new place and act like total ****heads when you do. "Hey, remember how we ****ed up where we came from? Lets do the same things and act the same way here!"

I wish you pompous yokels would just succeed from the Union, like you Texans are always shooting your mouths off about. I heard that rubbish from Longhorn fans in Pasadena right before they started crying in their beer over losing the game. Strong patriotism. You hayseeds have the luxury of sharing in the resources states like California provide, and there's no way in hell Texas could be a self-sustaining nation. Your political heroes would have their tails between their legs, asking some gender/racial minority, liberal president for a bail-out within seven years.
I choose to stay in California because of the diversity in landscape and culture... two things you know nothing about. I've got Coyote Hills and Mission Peak right outside my front door. This summer, I'll enjoy climbing Half Dome on a random Tuesday, being at Point Reyes by Thursday, and then strolling down Highway 1 to Santa Cruz for the weekend. No way I could ever bask in this kind of beauty in your state. I've been all over Texas, and there's no comparison in geography.
On the weekends, I live near Petaluma. I'll be residing here full-time come July. It's a very "red" and rural area, and the folks here are extremely conservative. The thing is, I love it. Know why? Because they're conservative... not redneck... and therein lies the difference.
Your social perspective (or lack thereof) and your ability to judge only through generalities is absolutely childish. Ever heard of Piaget and stages of moral development? Probably not. Let me paraphrase: See, in normal kids, the pre-operational stage takes place between 2 and 7 years of age. Pre-operational children are usually ego centric, which means they are only able to consider things from their own point-of-view. They imagine that everyone shares this view, because it has to be the only one possible. Gradually during this stage, a certain amount of decentering occurs.
Clearly, you are still stuck in this stage. Sadly enough, it's not all that uncommon, so you should have plenty of company. I believe they're called Tea-baggers.
(Btw, I always suspected you might be a "pre-op"... and I'm not referring to morality.)

I think we play Kansas St in '12. Not sure whom else. In 2013 the Gators finally come on the return trip for the '07 game we played at the Swamp. Would be interesting to play Bama as well.
I would guess they are pushing Notre Lame for that game in Chicago. ND has been against it since the series ended in '90.
05-09-2010, 03:41 PM
I have no idea where yall are taking this thread. But I was looking at going to Miami-Ohio St on Sept 11th till I saw the ticket prices. 175 bucks!!!
I want to go to UM-Pitt the following week but just realized it's a damn Thursday night game. Not sure if I have that much vacation. Arg.
Am looking at going to Orygun-Tennessee in Knoxville on Labor Day weekend.
Am also thinking about Boise-VaTech on Labor Day night here at FedEx field. It's only a Metro ride away. But that would be a helluva Tuesday morning!
After that am def. going to UM-UVa to see that wine and cheese crowd. Maybe UM-Gt in ATL. Though I'm bad luck for the Canes there. They are 1-2 when I go.
Not sure what else I'll go to. Maybe a Penn St game if any of the PSU people here go or any of the PSU people in Baton Rouge come up. One of those guys was talking about coming up for Michigan-Pen St with a UMich alum that is also down in BR.
What games are yall looking to go to?

You are like the best Bammers. You are smart, yet stupid. You can delude yourself into anything as long as you feel right. You think hurling all that **** at me, like you actually know a god damn thing about what youre talking about, sticks and makes you right. All your psychobabble bull**** is childish. Keep thinking California is a good place full of good people. Its hilarious. Im glad people think like you, otherwise we would have to deal with more of your emigration. Also, I want you to eventually legalize weed, that way you can get all the worthless ****heads around the nation to gather there and maybe you can get some of the ****heads who moved here from LA to go back. And I dont live in a diverse area? I live in Austin dumb****.
Being red in California is pointless and they arent red anyways. Go ahead, see which state is crumbling and which one is running the show right now. Keep being the posterboy for progressivism, hedonism, superficiality, and blueprint to failure. Let me know how your budget shortfall plays out, we are all enjoying watching the show. First state to request a bailout maybe? Better hope Pelosi is still in power after november...

If my comments don't hit close to home with you... then why do you get so worked up?
I'll check back with you in 10 years or so, when you have a legitimate amount of life experience. You'll have a decent income by then and you won't have to gripe about being the "broke college kid," which clearly serves to amplify your bitterness.
Think about it: You constantly insist on arguing... in a football thread... over who lives in the better state. Why not just assert that your dad can beat up my dad?

Play the life experience card, gotta have a fall back. Ill be a fan of college football for a long time, youll just be a game water as the seasons pass. Go Cal Bears! Lol, Im sure theyll get rid of the program there due to the state not being able to fund education anymore. Sucks when all the rich people you were paying for everyone else go off elsewhere. And Im saying, living in California willingly seriously hinders your ability to appreciate things outside of your ass, where your head spends most of its time.
05-11-2010, 07:28 PM
Oh, and seeing that I'm the only one of us who has actually been to both Austin and the SF Bay Area... I think that makes me the only one of us who's really qualified to have an objective opinion.
Don't take this the wrong way or anything... but you're an ignorant, redneck piece of sh1t.
05-12-2010, 03:13 PM
So wait, all your bitching about it being wrong...was wrong. Ill let you think about that one for a little. It might have been confusing, if you were ****ing stupid.
And the sentiment behind that sentence was, you can only tax the rich so long before they leave for greener pastures and you have an epic budget shortfall. When they pay the majority of your taxes...ruh roh.
I dont expect you to understand that you cant cling to "life expierience! life expierience!" and translate that to, "Im right, youre wrong thpptttt."
How would being to San Fran and Austin make you objective? That makes no sense, especially when you live around there. Thats like saying, Ive lived in Indiana for one year and Texas my entire life, and Indiana blows. Im objective. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
There is nothing profound about calling people Bammers. Just like Bammers call Auburn fans barners. And so on. and so on. There is just a personality type I see in many of the Alabama fans Ive met that I find hilarious. You can the bammer out of the double wide...
05-12-2010, 04:32 PM
Here's what I know: I'm happy with my life choices and I don't go around comparing my station in life to that of another. On the other hand, you can't stop talking about mine... which only makes your misery that much more transparent.
You're a crashing bore. Your self-loathing is disconcerting. Either talk about football or stick your head up your as$ and jump. I'm tired of reading about your social, sexual, and intellectual insecurities. Get therapy before you end up trying to explain the body parts in your basement.

Youre willfully stupid, and that's what I take issue with.
Your pop psycho babble is hilarious. Another hallmark of bammers, they talk like they know what they're saying when they dont.

Can we swing this back into the realm of football ever? You guys are just bashing each other now.
At least bash each other's football team. Oh right. Alabama already did bash Texas. I'm sorry.

Went to a curriculum council meeting today, and someone was gracious enough to point this out to me...
"Texas ranks 50th among the states in high school graduation rate, 48th in SAT scores, 45th in secondary school teachers with degrees in the subjects they teach, 39th in state aid per pupil and 32nd in average teacher salaries. Texas ranks 1st in uninsured children and 4th in the percentage of children living in poverty.
These statistics - gathered by the staff of State Sen. Eliot Shapleigh, D-El Paso, in a booklet entitled "Texas on the Brink" - also include that while the national high school dropout rate is 9.8 percent, in Texas it's at least 38 percent for African-American students, 24 percent for whites, and 50 percent for Hispanics.
In 2003, Texas ranked 49th in state spending per capita and on tax revenue raised, with average state government spending nationwide 46 percent higher than Texas," Shapleigh wrote. "The state's rankings are the expected outcome of an inadequate, outdated and terribly regressive tax system, one that taxes those least able to pay the most."
Here, let me follow my own advice and tie this back into football...

"Kiffin will make $4 million a year at USC, or roughly $333,333 per career win to date. That number is twice what Kiffin made at Tennessee and makes him one of the highest-paid college coaches in the country. It puts the 35-year-old, would-be wunderkind on par with established veterans Mack Brown, Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Les Miles and Bob Stoops, and ahead of Jim Tressel – all of whom have won at least 12 games in a season en route to national championships clearly of their own making."
05-17-2010, 02:56 PM
Kiffin must be able to sell himself really well to athletic directors and school presidents. I don't get it.

Obviously, I'm just kidding. I mean, Texas sounds absolutely blissful. In fact, I'm trying to talk my illegal Hispanic lover, Salvador, into moving there. Unfortunately, he's afraid that because he has a diploma... he'll stand out.

It isnt the governments responsibility to teach those values to kids. The parents should be doing that. Nanny states do not work. Look at Greece and your own state.
Everyone is having budget shortfalls. We do have a rainy day fund to fix gaps like this and our economy is still bringing in new companies and businesses. You liked those three paragraphs? I liked this part.
"Our economy on the other hand [improved] — let me give you a great example: We had a $10 billion budget deficit when we got here in January of 2003. We cut that budget deficit; we did not raise taxes; we came back in '05, and we had an $8 billion surplus."
Texas had two enormous prestigious public universities that are at capacity to point that in the new session, the Texas Legislature will create another Tier-1 research public university in Texas. There are numerous other schools and opportunities. In some places, education really isn't necessary to earning a living. Ill let you think about that for a little bit. Clearly youll have to dig up some more yahoo articles to paraphrase.
