Wait A Second -- You Mean Pelini Might Actually Get PAID To Do All Of This?

One story that nobody has really been talking about during the whole Bo Pelini lovefest over the past month is that, uhm, he's been working since December 2nd at Nebraska WITHOUT a contract. All signs indicate that it's just sitting with TO, waiting for Pelini to put his "John Henry" on when he gets around to it and nobody's anticipating any problems. And really, since Pelini's already been anointed as the Second Coming, why would there be?

Makes you wonder though: What if Ohio State, you know, the school Pelini actually went to college at, got sick of the sweater vest after losing two straight title games, and decided to just put a feeler out to Pelini? Not saying it's going to happen, but with all the shit that goes on with college coaches this time of year, would anything truly surprise you? So pretty please, with sugar on top, sign the fucking contract. Who knows -- if this doesn't work out after four years, you could force the NU brass to fire you and walk away with $3 Million extra!

You think you would ever spot Billy C or TO for that matter, gettin loose on bourbon street after a bowl win?

Oh I'm sure Callahan would have been all fucked up if he was down at the Big Easy. Except he'd have on White Sox gear instead of the Cleveland Indians.

Thos nights may change a bit though now that Bo is the face of the program, and not just the DC. Now, Carl Pelini can go out and get as fucked up as he wants to, as long as he doesnt pass out after a dozen margaritas going the wrong way on a one way street.

It is his shirt reserved for Puke Street.

The Smoked Turkey site has been temporarily disabled. Apparantley Karl Grindberg still has some pull with google blogger.

I've shut the old girl down with a wimper not a bang.

I'm turning cyberspace over to DL. Unless you want to reactivate your site TRB . . .

What's going on in the world? Esquire is doing away with their annual Dubious Achievement Awards, now this? That website of Brady's was a nice little stream to bring in new folks, we'll miss it terribly.

Please, at least give us a "best of" sometime this month.

Wow, SmokedTurkey going down reminds me of one of my favorite "Blazing Saddles" quotes:

Taggart: [learning Bart is the new sheriff of Rock Ridge] Now if that don't beat all. Here we take the good time and trouble to slaughter every last Indian in the West, and for what? So we can appoint a sheriff that's blacker than any Indian. I AM depressed.

BSmokedTurkey said...

Don't worry, men.

Where ever movie quotes are being used, you'll find me. . .

When ever musical talents are being discussed, I'll be there . . .

That's pretty much all I have to offer.

Speaking of which: Mac-Did you hate the Steve Miller Band because of their music or because we beat them to death in college?

BSmokedTurkey said...

Nice tagline. I hate to burst your bubble but I think they're all already here.

You know, You'll have to pull double duty now, topic-wise.

TravisRoastBeef said...

too bad, I always liked the Smoked Turkey site as a place to get away from it all and have some hard core entertainment discussions. It's like the W.C Franks closing all over again.

Dirtylaundry said...

We've sent out an open invitation for Bsmoked to be a regular contributor here; Trav, if you'd allow us to see your email, you'll get the same privilege...

TravisRoastBeef said...

Can I be editor of the People from Blair section, the part where we make fun of people.

Mackenzie said...

Yes, I think both of the Sons of Tim should start contributing topics on this site.

Yes, that was depressing when WC Franks closed down.

I had a mild dislike of Steve Miller's music up until the point you clowns started playing him like he was the Second Coming. That's when I began to hate him. I'm very quick on this stuff, I was the first person on my block to hate Hootie and the Blowfish.

BTW, I sure like MacG's instant link to SEC Poon, maybe we don't need SmokedTurkey back up after all.

Dirtylaundry said...

Done and DONE Trav, you're now on the payroll!

TravisRoastBeef said...

I have some thinking to do before my first story. I think back to the old sports editor for the Enterprise who wrote two stories in one month about how there was nothing to write about. Maybe about how I got screwed in the death pool, I was going to take Johnny Podres, but he died 2 weeks early on me.

Dirtylaundry said...

I've been wanting to say something about this for a week now after some Deadspin commenter found her. This is just too much:

We should probably take whoever is driving the same time as Roger Avary next in our dead pool:

Well, If you have ever considered writing some script to automate those things that you are doing several times a day, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons can automate all actions connected to a browser (Mozilla). If you wish to automate your system as such, then you may need some other script, simple commands will automate your system. Even a beginner will automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to inform Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and easy commands.
A GUI will be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a mixture of easy commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it just searches the screen for the image in the screenshot-that implies that you can use it for anything. There's literally no limit on how you utilize it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, but if you watch the following video, you may come to know that this is really easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it can be a cake walk even for beginners. You can check the video as well as get the software at [url=http://technoages.com/operating-system/apple-mac-os/automate-everything-through-a-simple-script-make-your-computer-listen-to-you/]TechnoAges.com[/url]
