A low bid according to some reporters, but it could go through. If it does, would Sam Webb and Steve Lorenz become a dynamic duo (CBS owns 247Sports)? Hard to see the value for CBS in running 247 and Scout independently. Then again, if CBS scrapped Scout, seems that each of the site writers would either (a) try to jump to Rivals or (b) start their own independent/competing blog.
Enough with the posbang threads, it's time for a good old fashioned negbang thread. It's time for the airing of grievances, because I got a lot of problems with you people.
In fact I never liked any of you, with your posting and your opinions, and your blah blah blah...
My son is starting to look at schools, and thinking about majors. He's a junior currently taking astronomy and loving it. I know there are astrophysicists and physicists out there, so my questions are: How did you know it was the right major for you? What does the job situation after college (he's assuming he'll have to go to grad school) look like? Other than Michigan, what are some schools with good astonomy departments? Is it feasible to get a strong liberal arts undergrad degree and then go on the astonomy/astrophysics in grad school? Do you have to be a super math whiz to even consider this as a major?
Foster will be coming back to the show this afternoon. I cannot believe how fast time flies. He's been out for FOUR months after having a stroke. It must have been a lot worse than we all thought or was let on. It sounded like something minor but he apparently has been struggling big time.
I actually liked Riger filling to to counter Valenti's rampant homerism, but I'm glad Foster's healthy and coming back to the radio.
And as I read the story a little more, he suffered two strokes.
Last couple of years, we used to have a lot of threads on "the other football." Not so much this year, probably b/c we didn't need the distraction. Nonetheless, as those things go, this is thread-worthy -- one of the most remarkable goals from the back of a heel. Scored by Arsenal's venerable veteran Olivier Giroud (he's French, so its prounced "zhih-ROO").
As some deeper background on England's soccer league this year, it's back to the norm. While last year was full of drama and ended with the 5000:1 upset win by Leicester, this year the the top 6 slots on the table are occupied by the usual big six teams. And the gulf between those six to the rest of the pack is not going to be bridged.
