Posted by emy1013 on 8/3/2014 6:18:00 PM (view original):I recall mm_harmon making a run in the NT with a less than stellar team, and there being detractors. I didn't remember what world/team, or how long ago. I put his name in the search function and it came up easily since he doesn't regularly post in the forums. I don't believe this means I have "exceptional memory", it just means I know how to use the search function.
Posted by stinenavy on 8/3/2014 10:47:00 AM (view original):The fact that you're recalling specific posts that happened over 18 months ago is a bit.....scary. Might want to pick up a hobby or two outside of HD because you are waaaaay to "into" this one. Or, you just might have an exceptional memory, there's always that I suppose.
Sorry to be "that guy", but the fact people will complain so emphatically over something that happens about once every two years is a joke. HOW DARE A NON 750+ RATED TEAM EVER MAKE IN A RUN IN THE NT!!!
I recall the last time a similar team made a run, same type of dialog:

mm_harmon, don't take it personally. Try to be rational and look at your team. Explain on what planet your team deserved to have been in the championship game. I don't care if you are the John Wooden of coaches, that team, with those players, has no business in that game. For you to beat Providence is an indictment of how bad the current HD system is. He has a team full of amazing players, yet he got beat by a school with one guy over 80 in athlete. It ain't personal, heck I don't even know you, but it is about the numbers and they don't add up.
Oh, and just because it only happens once every two years or so still doesn't mean that there's not something wrong with the results. You also didn't address the fact that this was basically the equivalent of a very high end D2 team making a run to the D1 Final Four.
It's quite rich that a guy with multiple usernames and who posted on here all day and night to call ettaexpress "gay" among other juvenile commentary, is being critical of how I spend my time.
As stated by someone else, there's around 7 seasons a year for a 1-a-day world, and about 11 seasons a year for a 2 a day world. So we about 82 HD total seasons in the 10 worlds, which would give us about 120 seasons in 1 1/2 years for easier math. So we have a less talented team make a D1 Final Four run 0.8% of the time, but sure, let's whine and say "what an absolute joke".
Find me one post, one un-edited post, where I referred to Ettaexpress as "gay". Don't worry, I'll wait. In fact, I challenge you to find a post about anyone anywhere
, on the whole damn internet, where I refer to them as "gay" in a disparaging way.
And when you don't, I'll expect a public apology. Your move.
Maybe certain parts of your memory aren't that good, since you're obviously thinking of a series of conversations that Billy_G and Etta had.
But to remember a coach's name from 18 months ago that made an unexpected run in the NT, who isn't either you or a close friend, would qualify as an exceptional memory to me. In case you're so blinded by your hatred of all things me, that's not an insult. Now back to the "gay" comment you're supposed to be dredging up, still waiting.
