I guess the Notre Dame Brand is not strong enough

For ESPN to pick up a top 10 rivalry ACC matchup, huh? wow. I was told that by exchanging the most lopsided deal in sports history with ND, their brand would "help" the ACC with regards to television, marketing, etc. Hmm. Guess not.

there are literally 3 or 4 other threads you could have posted this in to actually further a discussion, but I guess the urge to go full "look at me, I'm edgy again" was just a bit too strong.

lol....this reminds me of what my 5 yr old daughter said to my wife and I the other day. "Remember when it was just the 3 of us? that was nice." our 19 month old son was hitting her with a plastic bat at the time..lol.

Everybody should know that is completely impossible for that guy.

I try and give DC the benefit of the doubt most times, and I never downvote him (or anyone else for that matter because I don't really see the point) but come on mannnn. youre not doing yourself any favors and you ruin it for yourself when you actually have something good to say.

You have to be honest, those occasions are few and far between.

Most of the time, the issue with him isn't what he's saying but how he's saying it. Unfortunately, the 'how' seems to gradually be getting worse over time.

"I regret nothing. The end." - Ron Swanson

And how you say something is often vastly more important than what you actually say. You can't (or shouldn't) separate the two.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

what happens if a thread topic gets 100 downvotes..... does it go blurry.....asking for a friend

"Welcome to the Terror Dome." -- Corey Moore

i believe if an account gets enough net down-votes, it gets banned.

which really only applies to newbies who go nuts before they can establish a leg count buffer. For someone with 3,354, like dc, something like that will never happen.

I've only been TKPing for less than 5 years so I may not have the whole picture, but based on his recent post history I want the ESPN 30 for 30 on how he got 3300+ legs...

I'm guessing a lot of Emma gifs

Yeah.....I ain't gonna defend you on this one.

This is the sports equivalent of "The Puppy Who Lost His Way". But go on, we'll keep "listening".

Except for the puppy was a dog. But the industry my friends...that was a Revolution!

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the tach goes into the red and reads 9000 RPMs, that's bad!

The part of that story I didnt like though is that he gave up looking for the puppy after an hour! He didnt put up posters or anything, he just sat on the porch like a goon and waited!! That kids gotta think "you got a pet, you got a responsibility!" If you lose your dog you dont look for an hour then quit! You get your ass out there and you find that fucking dog!!!!

Can someone interpret for me and tell me what the post means?

Life is good.

He's mad that the basketball game tonight isn't on ESPN, and he doesn't like the partial membership deal that the ACC made with Notre Dame. Instead of venting his frustration in the thread already started about the game not being on ESPN, he opted to start a new thread.

Even though the reason that the game not being on ESPN isn't so much because ESPN didn't want it, but because Raycom claimed it before the season started.

That's a good interpretation!

FYI, ND is on ESPN an hour after our game starts, making this post doubly nonsense.

You know, in my opinion.

Wrong response. Lo siento.

Probably a good thing most of America can't see this game.

turns out its a good thing we got relegated to raycom purgatory. No one needs to be embarrassed on national television like this.

Leg for the DCWilson vitriol and speaking one's mind, I like it at times. I also like folks speaking their mind and blasting him back.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

I don't see the reason for all the hate for DC from this

He started a thread with no content or value added. His tone is snarky, adversarial and designed to create frustration rather than conversation. It's also his entire reputation so when he leans into it, so do we.

This is great for the ACC and VT.

How had I never seen this? I thought my life was full and complete, but I was wrong, this is what I was missing.

I am not going to lie.

I am quietly laughing so hard at my desk my eyes are watering. Its the perfect gif for this thread. I wish I could give this more than 1 TL, it deserves so much more.

Imagine the stink that hippo is causing.

The perfect gif. The gif that keeps on giving.

lol the hippo is literally spraying shit all over the onlooking kids while its tail goes full weed whacker on its bumhole.

And then has a good chuckle to himself when done as well.

I dunno if that's a chuckle... I interpret it as taking pride in the gloriousness of your own fart when you know you're about to clear out a room

I mean, you gotta find someway to entertain yourself if you are stuck in a cage all day!

Where's the beef?

Ok, this is more info than you really wanted to know.

This is a hippo at Homassassa Springs Wildlife Park in Homassassa Springs, FL.

His (I thinks it's a male hippo) name is LU, he's somewhere in the range of 60 years old now.

He's a bit cantankerous and does this fairly often. It's on purpose.
He also likes to back up against the fence and power it out in a huge splash to get people.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Sounds like someone found the perfect gif.

I don't think the piling on DC is fully warranted here. We could have actually discussed the value of the ND deal now that we have a few years to evaluate versus slamming the OP. I personally enjoy the matchup with ND. Even if they may get more value from it than the conference does, I think it is a valuable relationship. Obviously it has nothing to do with the Raycom coverage of the game though.

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

We have discussed the deal before. That's where dc's rant came from. Plus as you said, that deal had nothing to do with the broadcast. Therefore, any attempt at discussion just would have devolved into a flaming mess.

Would have?

This is going to be great for the ACC.

That could have happened if the thread was started with some data on ACC primetime televised matchups before and after the ND addition rather than a shitpost.
