Glad Iím living rent free in your head

I was at a sports bar at my hotel for lunch while on vacation and saw the beginning of the game was on. I watched maybe 4 minutes of it. Literally never thought of 67o until I saw all the quotes of this post just now. Hell, I didnít even know Michigan won the game until I saw the post.

But good for Michigan. Finally won one.

Its fun having a Significant other who is a total boss

So we gamboolin today. Waiting to get into the big game. We are playing in the sleepiest of 1/3's. After 4 hrs its pretty obvious we are stuck in the doldrums. SPC racks up and sez fcuk it this is boring and a waste of time. Ima do sumpin else. She left stuck 120 USD and the streak ends at 22. I wound up sticking around for another 2 hrs cuz im committed to the cause, but finally hung it up.

This was our first experience of a 100% boring game at our new home. A fair amt of time is spent in a moderate action games (moderate action here I would stay at the table for as long as possible if it were in vegas). and then we have the ossum time funfest maybe 25% of the time

In a related topic, the discrepancies between the SEC/B1G and everyone else is pretty mind boggling. Michigan State (of all programs) just signed their coach to a new deal which pays $9.5 million/year + incentive bonuses. Contrast that with the top programs in the Pac-12 like USC/UCLA that pay their head coaches in the $5 million range.
Coaches win more when they're paid highly.

She's not paid enough to beat that game.

David Shaw, like the rest of the top paid coaches in the Pac-12 only makes $5 million/year. He had 1 year where he exceeded that due to some bonuses and backpay that were owed to him. (this as compared to the Michigan State coach who will make $95 million over 10 years, pre-bonuses).

Saying that salaries don't matter is very ignorant. If a team such as USC or Florida State is only committed to paying their coach $5 million/year while top teams in the SEC/B1G are willing to pay their coaches $9 million/year+ then USC or Florida State could have the best coach in the world, but they won't be able to keep them. Paying their coach only $5 million/yr makes that coaching job a stepping stone job, no better than the head coaching job at Mississippi State or Kentucky, and apparently a much worse job than the head coaching job at Michigan State.

The discrepancies between conferences has already been playing out on the field with the SEC having won 11 of the last 15 national championships. That's 4 different SEC teams that have won a national championship since the last time a Pac-12 team won it. 5 once you add Texas to the SEC. The highest ranked Pac-12 team this year is ranked #10. The highest ranked ACC team is ranked #17.

Once all the new TV deals gets finalized the discrepancies will only increase especially with Texas and OU moving to the SEC. The Pac-12, ACC, and especially the Big 12's football revenues will be so much less than the SEC and B1G's that it will be hard for them to justify investing into their football programs at a rate that will allow them to be competitive year in and year out.

Good win Michigan. I was surprised because of Michiganís propensity to lose the big ones under Harbaugh and after seeing what Ohio State did to Purdue I thought Ohio State was going to roll to a national championship.

Maybe instead of paying the coaches they should start paying the players.

Awesome, what a beast, way too go SPC!

(spoiling boring stats/results stuff)

Spoiler:

My best sunrun was way back in 2012. I booked 7 wins in a row, then a $12 loss in a 12 hour session, then a new record 10 wins in a row, then 2 average/decent losses, then won a new (and still standing) record of 15 wins in a row. So a little 32-3 streak. Ah, the glory days.

Yesterday I ended a ridiculous 10 session streak where I did not win or lose more than $204 (68bb) in a session. Average session length 8.4 hours with smallest session length being 5.6 hours. Included a $1 win as well as an exactly breakeven session. For realz.

Ended the streak yesterday by booking a $536 loss (my biggest loss since May of 2018). Almost grateful.

Shaw's number had never been disclosed. Most outlets actually guess his number is close to 9 million.

I guess you already knew that and, like always, dispute and make up your own thoughts on what you think is true.

Looks like they opened the canyons side of PCMR with a single WROD. Currently 56 and sunny, I am contemplating bagging some rays...have some rain/snow forecatsed in a week or so - no skiing in the foreseeable future out here.

Been an insane year weather-wise out here. Already had one cousin lose a house in the fires. Now have another cousin having his house threatened by the floods.

major floods here as well and all the dams bursting.

Right now everyone's calling for the farmers to get given **** loads of $$ because their crops have been ruined by water. 3 years ago and in 3 years time we'll be asked to give them money because of the last/next drought. Meanwhile the farmers buy new Land Cruisers every 18 months

I know exactly how much Shaw made. Making $9 million in one year is nothing compared to making $95 million + bonuses over 10 years. His one outlier year is a normal year of pay at Michigan State.

Stanford has money coming out of its ears so if Stanford really wants to be relevant in football it could but unfortunately they care a lot more about stupid meaningless bullshit like education, research, and gender equality.

It's good to see that USC is now showing a commitment to staying relevant in football, but if they are truly committed to football excellence they'll bolt the Pac-12 at the next opportunity.

Need some chat thread input. First workouts back since injury/surgery. 25 BP reps at 55lbs is pretty legit, right?

Also, going to BDubs for MNF tonight. That's about as good as it gets for wings, correct?

Finally, best crypto holding? Imma guess Boring Coin (ZZZ) is right if you're hodling, since it's boring, so you'll never be tempted to sell. Optimal, yes?

I know exactly what some rumors say too. If that's your 'standard' you can rest assured that Stanford and Michigan State expect to win the same number of national titles in our lifetime.

Having recently been thrust into the heart of SEC country by no choice of my own, may have skewed my perspective on a few things but at the same time it's highly likely that the many years you have spent in Pac-12 country have completely scrambled your brain.

I just watched the latest Indiana Jones movie. Honestly, not that great of a movie. You all can probably skip watching this one.
