You can definitely see how people think Brian comes off as a spoiled child at times.
I wasn't upset about the calls during the game - the PI on HIll was legit, esp. upon replay.
the spot was always going to be ruled in favor of the call on the field and that's always a judgement call.
the holding/lack of holding and a couple no calls on PI and especially the spots consistently going toward OSU and against M provides a legit hypothesis that should be vetted with a complete study of the reffing in this game.
If Brian did this (not a chance, IMO) he would likely get one of the top trafficed posts on the site. If he does it and finds a pattern of bias one way or the other, that's pretty big news. If he does is and finds no clear pattern, it puts the debate to rest. if he does it and basically finds (as I would expect) no evidence one way or the other (plausible deniability, AKA ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) then that also puts it to bed, IMO b/c that's just a game called the way all games are called when there is a complaint against the refs (see: any PSU loss).
Quantitatively speaking, If greater than 85% of the spots are judged in OSUs favor AND/or 85+% of the holding calls and no calls and/or 85+% of the PI calls and no calls are in PSUs favor, I'd say that's evidence of clear malice from the officials.
60-85% would be a plausible deniabilty --> this is what I'd expect on the road in Cbus.
less than 60% is standard, close to a 50-50 called game.
I think it's a slam dunk for the blog to do this, but Brian's too much of a baby/coward to do it.

see, I don't think this is the best way to use him. You want the ball in his hands ASAP, at the snap - not 15-40 yeards downfield. and that's what they've been doing with him.
People keep expecting to see some kind of unused counter, but I don't think that's how Harbaugh operates the offense- that strategy would be more like Carr teams... run the same bland shit vs Houston/Rice/EMU and save the "surprise" (bootlegs) for the big games. Harbuagh is running a ton of stuff, reverses, jet sweeps, AND running the counter plays later (throw back to Speight, Full back gives off jet sweep motion). He wants to show everything to the opposition (all of them, not jsut OSU, MSU, etc) has to prepare for everything. So the opposition can't just gameplan around one thing, them M pulls out the counter for a big game. That creates what Carr teams had: slogs for 90% of the plays, then a screen or bootleg for 20-40 yards that flips field position/gets into FG range or the RZ to set up a TD. This year it's a consistent march for 3-4 yards WITH bigger plays of 15-25 yards. Teams can stop neither the mainstream stuff (b/c they have to have significant focus on the counter) NOR the bigger counter plays.
I think on a year to year basis he changes things up. Last year was a lot of FB dives, this year not so much. Last year (IIRC?) more pulls and counters to power, this year not quite as much.

I'm always shocked how people complain about how turrible the D was. they had their issues coving guys deep (and maybe that's onthe scheme - we heard all off season how the Don Brown D is solid but prone to the big play). Classic line: if Sefo Liufau doesn't get hurt who knows how many yards they put up.
fact: he was in in the 2nd Qtr. how many yards did they put up?
fact: the D got to him the entire 2nd Qtr and it was *this D" that knocked his ass out of the game. Crist, he didn't trip on a cable on the side line and stub a toe. his ass was crushed for 3-4 strainght drives. that's football. get to the QB and if the next guy up ain't as good, that's not the D's fault.
28 pts surrendered. 7 weren't on the D and 3 were big plays. Limit the big play a bit, coach up the safeties, get Taco, Mone and JLew back and we'll be solid for Wisc.

I think it's crystal clear that Harbaugh plays the QBs according to what's needed: last year Rudock plays 98% of the nabs when healthy - but he didn't get to campus till 8/1/15, so he needed the starter to the reps. it was Rudock or bust past eyar and Harbaugh knew it.
This year, it seems Speight won the battle allegedly "not by a small margin" according to Haurbaugh (I think it was him who said it yesterday). WS knows the play book (been here since Harbaugh) and I'm sure could use some more reps, but I think they feel like they need to develop depth and sustain competition for the #2 guy at the QB position.

Had any other previous M coach burned this many RSs, I think most people would be fuming - however, these guys didn't lose the year on ST coverage or Punt Return - they lost them (mostly) on Off & Def. IOW, it wasn't "token" PT- they are actively finding where & how these guys can contribute.
Anyway, did that MSU guy who was looking to get a 6th (or was it 5th?) medical year actually receive it? I have a feeling a ot of these guys are going to get dinged up after the CU game and they'l retain their RSs like Peppers and Gardner did.

Again, Rey's backstory explains her ability to pick up combat easily (and rens injury and limited training and emotional imbalance help expliain her victory). The mind probe awakened her force sensitivity much more rapidly than others and the will of the force is what most dont account for either. Rey picked up very specific powers that she could excel at quickly due to her unique background and unique and sudden awakening to the force, again not even to mention the will of the force itself.

I agree about the last part- Vader is supposed to be the most powerful, cruel and ruthless enforcer of evil ever- among the most powerful Sith Lords in history (and in and hands on way- unlike the emperor ) but you really don't see much of HOW he got that reputation from the original trilogy-would really add to the depth of the character to see that, but it has to be done right. Remember he was the one hunting for the rebels and the stolen plans at the start of ep4

The backstory is that she's been abandoned to fend for herself all alone as a scavenger of starships. She's clearly knowledgable about the systems and how they operate.

Back in 2006 when my 1st was born, I bought one full semester of MIs college trust. I also have a few thousand saved in a 529. Unfortunately that all adds up to almost one semester out of state at UM and I have 2 kids. 6-7 years out for the oldest, but the market would have to grow by 30% per year to pay for it all.

I can't stand yard sales. Wlaking up to someone's house, looking though their old crap and paying 50c for something they'd toss in the trash otherwise. Having one sucks too b/c it takes so much time to prepare and set up and you have to be out there for hours on end. The hours you put in might get you $200-400, but you're lookinga t probably 20-30 hours of set up, pricing and selling Fri-Sat-Sun.
Wife loves shopping at them (shocking), and the best ones are the baby clothes sales in a good subdivision.
Funny story I heard was a buddy of mine had a sale, some old lady walked up and wanted to negotiate the price of a 25c mug or something down to 10c. Dude looked at her, picked up the mug and smashed it on the ground, walked away.

Or, you could do what I do* and set 5 singles on the table at the beginning and tell the server everytime time they fuck up or let my drink run empty, I take away a dollar for their tip.
* I've only done this when I actually know the server really well, like good friends.

The travel stuff is pretty outragous IMO. But LL is fine. Not as much participation per capita perhaps, but I think the overall numbers are decent, at least in NYS.
The thing is, LL is based on volunteer coaching (parents) and since most of the parents are Americans, they *think* they know the game but in reality don't know shit - especially teaching it. In my little league most coaches just throw out the best kid at catching at 1st, the best arms on the IF and the rest in the OF/C. get 2-3 kids to hit BP and 90mins later everyone is bored as hell. No skill development, not teaching kids how to catch, throw, field, hit.
So I can understand parents of kids with potential and "want to" not making progress in little league and moving to a better situation

The thing that would make it useful if some kind of objective measure of who won the draft. LIke a public poll to judge before the season, then some kind of quantitative measure of team quality like AA=5, AB10=4 AB10_2nd team=3 etc.
I mean, I want to know who won last year and the year before.

|24 weeks 5 days ago||The difference between the||
The difference between the two packages is that Fox Sports will carry the Big Ten football championship game every season, which is a strong draw each December. Fox also will have game selection advantages over ESPN, which almost certainly means that the coveted Michigan-Ohio State rivalry will move to Fox most years.
For Delany and the Big Ten, the deal is a clear win. Not only did the conference pick up a significant increase in a down market, but the relatively short length of the deal means the Big Ten will be the first major college conference to renegotiate a new deal in what it hopes will be a more robust marketplace.

I wouldn't worry about the govt defaulting on that stuff. The question is, do you want a 529 (which is a 401k-like thing where your $$ goes into the market to go up or down) or the MET (which most states don't offer) in which you pay a set price today to get a semester X years down the road.
We did both but have lost $300 in the 529 due to markets decreasing. Paid like 4 grad for a semester of instate tuition in 2007.
