re: Lincoln Riley, Saban say fans who want to expand CFB Playoff field will never be satisfied - BigPapiDoesItAgain
What Saban is angling for is to just give it to Alabama every year and be done with it, no need for a fussy playoff with multiple chances to lose a game. ...

[quote]How do you like the Schiit? [/quote] Nothing to compare it to, but that being said, I think it is great, especially for $129, and it gives me a great deal of flexibility on cartridge choice as well. ...

re: Holy Cross eliminating Crusader mascot so as not to offend Hadji - BigPapiDoesItAgain
Wow, my brother-in-law was a Holy Cross Crusader (and a Brother Martin one as well). Can't wait to hear what he has to say on this topic. Sounds like it is far from a done deal. Lots of history there - crusader with a small "c" has become a generic term in modern parlance, but I guess the offended p...

re: Audiophile/Vinyl Thread - Post Pics, Advice, Questions, Setups, etc. - BigPapiDoesItAgain
So this past weekend we had some family in from out of town for a visit. The group included my four sweet little nieces, ranging in age from 3 to 8. Well, un-beknownst to me, the five year old decided to play DJ with my Rega Planar 3/Rega Exact cartridge. Earlier in the afternoon Friday, I had b...

re: I think ND's win in 2014 over LSU was a fluke - BigPapiDoesItAgain
Remember how bad LSU was screwed as the half ended on Kragthorpe's fake FG shoulda been TD, ruled down before crossing plane. Missed the call on the field and again when they reviewed it. LF went off that game, was really his coming out party. ...

re: Dog training question: aggressive/protective dog - BigPapiDoesItAgain
That's your dog's personality - doubt you will break it and it is going to be something to always keep in mind when the dog is in those situations. You can mitigate by staying in charge with easy body language and calm demeanor. I completely disagree with whomever said don't use a pinch (prong) ...

re: Game experience missing wi-fi - BigPapiDoesItAgain
Damn, I'm 48, and in no way married to my phone, but how could that not improve the experience? One of the things I enjoy about when I watch at home is that if I want to see what a stat is at a given time, I can check it out, or if I want to look up something on an opposing player I can. I'm a footb...

re: Audiophile/Vinyl Thread - Post Pics, Advice, Questions, Setups, etc. - BigPapiDoesItAgain
Looking at what you have, I would strongly consider VPI Cliffwood - comes in at around $900, I believe. Marco will chime in - he is the resident authority here. I took the plunge with a used Rega P3 with a nice Sumiko Blue Point HOMC cartridge. I have $550 in mine. If you are willing to assume some ...

re: What's the worst call in college football history? - BigPapiDoesItAgain
I guess the dumbass refs didn’t know catching the ball after another offensive player kicked it was illegal. Or they somehow missed it. Link to game below. Musberger and Fouts never said anything about it after the play, so they didn’t know the rule either. LINK Best thing about the video...

re: Neighbors dog attacked my dog - BigPapiDoesItAgain
People keep mentioning leash laws, do leash laws apply with regards to one's own back yard, especially if the yard is fenced?? I let my dog (male german shepherd) out in our yard (fenced) off-leash all the time. I guess the shared yard could cloud the situation to some degree with regard to the leas...
