I'm suprised no one is mentioning Shure. They don't have the market share that they once enjoyed - apparently they don't beleive in marketing - but they make a solid product. I prefer the sound to Beats or Bose. I have the Shure SE 425's

If we are undefeated going into November you'll be singing a different tune. We all will.

I'm in Fairfax County VA. with an abundance of well respected High Schools. The story locally is that tn order to to get into UVA you must go IB. In last year's graduating class over 400 grauating seniors had GPA > 4.00. AP courses with 4.00 GPA aren't geting kids into UVA.
My yougest called University Michigan admissions office recently to inquire about how they look at IB. The person she spoke with said no difference between IB and AP credits. I'm pushing her away from IB - great smarts but marginal study skills and she dislikes writing.

I'm 13/16 so far. I picked Yale but lost heart at the last minute and went with Baylor. I could kick myself for that one. Gonzaga is my best pick so far. If Cinci wins today I'll be 100% on 9 seeds over the 8 seed.
I picked Arizon, Baylor, and Purdue to lose in the round of 32 so I'm sitting ok.

Someone calling you slugger is just strange. A stranger calling me Chief does in fact cause contempt and make me want to give that person a smack - like a boss.

No love for Kingston Davis? I think Davis will follow a similar trajectory as Smith. Overshadowed early on by higher rated recruits Smith worked his way onto the field and stayed there. Davis will do the same - but not in ’16.

I heard Orsen speak a lunch at a luncheon in Honolulu somewhere around 1996. He made a strong case for bombing Hanoi - in 1996.

1. Virginia (Mendenhall)
2. Miami, FL (Richt)
3. Virginia Tech (Fuente)
4. Georgia (Smart)
5. Maryland (Durkin)
Lot's of Cooridators are hyped as sure bets as HC until the Peter principle takes hold. I'll take real world success (Fuente) over potential as a HC (Smart and Durkin). When it comes to potential Smart has a better body of work than Durkin amd walks into a better situation with better talent on-hand and a better pipeline.
Was Durkin's '15 defense really that much better than Mattison's '14 defense when you consider that Mattison's defense was constantly defending a short field and turnovers, didn't have Peppers and had a LB coaching the defenisive backs?
'14 offense averaged 20.9 ppg
'14 defense gave up 22.4 ppg
'15 offense averaged 30.6 ppg
'15 defense gave up 17.2 ppg
I'm not a member of the Ann Arbor pitchfork club calling for Durkin to be strung up for leaving Ann Arbor, nor am I on the Durking bandwagon. Need to see more.

Given even a small chance of success I'll go for the try and fail option over the fail to try option. Or, are we supposed to sit and wait for only sure-fire options.

Favorite Orange Bowl memory; going to watch Miami play Notre Dame. Gerry Faust’s last game that turned into an ugly blow out. On the way to the game I bought a kabob from a street vendor with a hibachi. As I bit into my tasty snack I noticed that the vendor’s bbq brush had paint stains on the handle. That’s Miami.
Hollywood, FL 85-95

Having worked for the U, the Whoricanes are a team I love to hate. I'd guess that the true fans are thrilled at this hire.

Can't fault Maryland if that was the case. No matter how much potential DJ brings you can't look past Richt's track record as a head coach.
|25 weeks 9 hours ago||Bandwagon U||
Nope. Miami is the epitome of a bandwagon school. If it’s a marquee game there’s a crowd. A few might even follow the sport. If it’s a middling opponent the stadium is half empty. There’s a lot of other things to do in South Florida on a Saturday. It was that way even in the days of Jimma Johnson. A lot of urban schools face the same challenge.

In practice directing the child to choose the consequnce frequently results in a more severe consequence. If a group of senior football players are incapable of making a difficult decision, and doing the right thing for the greater good, it suggests that they have been poorly prepared for the world. In which case maybe football might not be the great character building sport we wish it to be.
I think, given the opportunity, the players will make the right decision more times than not. And I think that those players that are put in positions to make tough decisions, even if they get it wrong, will be better prepared for the 'real' world.

Not to mention the impact on Mone's draft prospects. If he's a potential 1st or 2nd rounf draft pick brining him back for a single game could cost Mone millions.

Same with Woodson. The singular talent was on display but how he shifted the entire game plan as a lockdown corner was not so apparent - until he was gone.
