Eventually there will be a complete heat death of the entire universe.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves.

speculation as if it was true is not investigative reporting, even if there is overwhelming political pressure to conform to mob mentality. That is why the press was once thought of as a safeguard against bad governance, which it no longer is.
Your "tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists" were 100% right, as they were with the 1953 Iran coup d'etat, the 1973 Chile coup and the 1954 Guatemala coup, and about a million other things for which you will never forgive them.
Sometimes telling the truth requires courage as well as smarts.

(aka Time-Warner, Clinton's 7th-largest 2016-cycle campaign contributor) has been caught purging pro-Sanders comments from their website, so, yeah on the "agenda" thing.

Judith Miller and the other Iraq-War rah-rah types by saying "everybody else was doing it too," then you left the Chomsky train a long time ago.

criminalizing taking and sharing of information using a computer have been proliferating since the 1980s. I am reminded of the federal prosecution of Aaron Schwartz leading to his suicide.
I think this boils down to bad law coming from the unwise coalition pairing the hunter instinct of law enforement with the "zero tolerance" mentality in various legislative bodies. It highlights and raises to crisis level the unwise advantage given to and now enjoyed by law enforcement types, including NSA and the rest, in their natural adversary relationship with the Fourth Amendment and human rights, such as the right to privacy, in the US.
If this had occurred involving anything other than computers, no crime would be involved. The growing criminalization of computers is part of the war of law enforcement against the right of privacy in general.
I missed the part about how LTT got busted in the first place. Was there a complaint, or how did the cops get involved? I try not to mingle with people who appear itchy for an excuse to call the police as an answer to every problem.

exciting football games between strong teams are better than dreary charades involving preposterously mis-matched opponents, even if they happen before the national championship game.
After all, there arent' enough bad teams for every game before the playoff to be a boring formality.

My brain replayed the BS targeting call on Joe Bolden all night long.

Maybe I'll feel better.
Well. I think that's all the cute I have in me at the moment.
Maybe after I get over the hangover.

that denies students all manner of compensation (including medical compensation for on-field injuries) using the "amateurism" ruse, while commercializing every other aspect of the game and compensating coaches at NFL levels, I don't think the treatment of coaches is relevent to the increasingly laughable "amateurism" of the sport.
That said, I don't necessarily agree or disagree with the rest of what you say. As we know, it is a tough sport. If they had held on to him, it would still have been out of a concern for (eventual) winning.

already do that anyway, and the NCAA sits with its thumb up its ass.
The NCAA only gets activated to declare a "major violation" and threaten major sanctions if a team stretches for fifteen minutes too long in a day or if someone prints out T-shirts with a motivational slogan and hands them out to everyone on the O-line.
If you buy a player for a quarter million, or conduct nakedly fraudulent classes for years on end, the NCAA goes into a coma and you get off scott free.
So, figuratively speaking, if you find you accidently left the store with a lollipop in your pocket without paying for it, it's in your best interest to go ahead and kill the store owner and burn the store down while you're at it, under NCAA governance.
I am so sick of hearing about these bullshit rules, about this bullshit enforcement, about shackling these players, about punishing honest schools, about the idea of paying students for their role in fronting a %100 million dollar AD budget by paying them with classes you don't give them time to attend or study for, about turning the kids' image and likeness into a financial gravy train for everyone but the kids themselves while putting them at physical risk and working them to death.
"Certain schools" HAVE ALREADY done everything you bring up. There is nothing left to lose by ending the fraud and hypocracy.

I only talk about coaches who coach at Michigan.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||"Cervesial?"||
Thanks to the Spanish-language cognate, I know immediately what you mean with this word.
The only place I could find its existence verified (I wanted to investigate the etymology, among other things) was here, under a subsection ("page," if you will) named "sesquipedalia." (No etymology provided.)
My searches at Webster, Cambridge, McMillan and others failed, but offered up the following words as spelling corrections: cervical, Frisian, perversion and others. Vocabulary.com went right ahead and gave me the definition of "surficial" without asking if there was any mistake.
One way or the other, I think you are out in front of the crowd with this one.

whether to be concerned or enthused that the doctor coaching me in a life with inguinal herniea could be a poetic soul capable of that kind of metaphorical imagination.
Either way, I'll go with "Chip away at obstacles, protect the balls."

I see the Harbaugh-era restored maize, I am very happy.
For me, watching M eventually win consistently while wearing real maize will be like being 12 again, but in a good way.
Bumble-bee jerseys and 27-27 were just a bad dream, after all.

I see more similarity between 2014-5 OSU and 1968-9 OSU.

you mis-spelled "boat."
