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.

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.

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.

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.

I think the Michigan family will remain a little schizophrenic as long as it tries to excise the parts of its history it doesn't like to remember.
Just as we (Hackett, Harbaugh, et alia) continue to pay tribute to Hoke's success in moulding the academic integrity of the program, I think we need to accept and unabashedly celebrate the way that Rich-Rod's and Barwis' character and behavior have absorbed the Buckeyes from the Mealer family and made them deeply and emotionally connected die-hard members of the Michigan family, and the way that that has added depth and resonance to the Michigan community.

I wasn't there for these, but Yost 1901-26, or stretch it to include Kipke's good years, out to 1933, was an epic stretch. I also think Crisler (this is an interesting hire story, with AD Yost giving Crisler, reluctant to leave Princeton, everything he asked) and early Oosterbaan, '38-48, was a quality stretch with two MNCs, although it took Crisler 6 years to figure out Bernie Bierman and the Gophers and take UM out from under Minnesota's shadow. (Bierman was there for the decline and fall of Kipke.) Crisler's early Gopher problems remind me of the early stretch Bo slogged through against Woody from 1972-75.
I would have called it "Michigan Football's Great Era." As Harbaugh said at his introductory presser, you don't compare great to great.

|16 weeks 4 days ago||Since you picked that quotation||
from the OP about how "freaky statistical things happen like that in close proximity," I have a bone to pick with this reasoning process.
People always seem ready to misconstrue clustering of random phenomena, but "random" does not mean "regularly distributed." A series of coin flips resulting in a regular alternation of heads and tails is just as unlikely as is all heads or all tails; any of these is a description of a discrete case out of the 2^N potential outcomes of N number of coin flips. The outcome of any coin flip has no bearing on the outcome of that following.
By the same token, 0-16 happening a few years back has by itself no bearing on whether it happens again now. Commentary on clustering of random phenomena with expressions implying a narrative of causation, such as "we're hot" or "we're due," is evidence of people's fundamental discomfort with or incomprehension of randomness, clustering or no clustering.

two games. You are talking about the 1976 OSU game in Columbus, Bo's first win over Woody after three losses and a tie to OSU going back to 1972, only Bo's third victory over Woody going back to 1969.
M continued beating OSU in '77 (mentioned below) and '78 (14-3).
Some worthwile OSU beatdowns with motivational backstories are still missing above and below, so, with some redundancies, let me point to:
Post-1969: '76, '77, '78, '80. I'm not sure if they are both in this thread elsewhere, but Brady's two OSU victories in '99 and '00.
Pre-1969: '64; (game-film only? WH?): '40, '47, '48, '50.
OSU's streak '72-75 trashed several potential UM MNCs, but it is dwarfed by the wreckage inflicted on UM teams, several of them otherwise undefeated, in a winless streak from 1933-42 by Minnesota. Michigan finally turned the tide on the rivalry in 1943 before taking a year off in 1944. If film of the '43 Minnesota game exists, it should be exhumed and a voice-over added. Michigan dominated the series from thence forth.
(Rose) Bowl wins pre-1970: 1948, '51, '65; if anything exists, 1902. The '02 and '48 scores are identical.
Conference rivalries: YouTube has four minutes of film uploaded from the 1904 Chicago game.
Beating the SEC in Bowl Games: 87/88 Alabama; 90/91 Mississippi; 98/99 Arkansas; 99/00 Alabama; 00/01 Auburn; 02/03 Florida; 07/08 Florida.

Michigan would have to join OSU in the Newbee Seven due to the hiatus in membership from 1907-1917.

Seasons have been sort of a let-down since Chicago left in 1939. Especially since Minnesota started sucking after beating us nine times in a row from 1934-42. (How many more antedeluvian MNCs would we have if it weren't for the depression-era Golden Gophers?)

hit job was facilitated by people inside the UM AD. Out here we will never know how many of those are still left. The war against RR also sabotaged the players, the fans, and the football program at UM. As late as last August Hoke and Brandon were still rolling out the red carpet for Rosenberg when he skulked out of his swamp at SI for privileged interviews at UM.
The F-word paper never acknowledged its own editorial malpractice in allowing that factually dishonest piece to see the light of day. That paper still acts like it never did anything wrong and like that piece isn't the journalistic paraquat that it is.
Half of the deplorable duo, Snyder, whose names appeared on the criminal libel still purveys his journalistic malfeasance under the same roof he did on the day of infamy. Several others anethema to human decency still work there too.
In short, there has been no distance made between that paper now and its earlier manifestation which, holding the knife, plunged it into the back of the players and fans of the Michigan football program.
No forgiveness. Never forget.

Why not go all Aztec, and feed the heart of everyone on the team that misses the extra point to the other team?
This may require rules changes that go outside the NFL.

I think we agreed on another thread here that when artificial intelligence goes SkyNet, the velocity of improvement in computer technology will be so fast that the computers will be 10,000 times smarter than we are by the time we realize they have tipped the balance.
So my prediction of the impact on societal norms would be human extinction.

by that logic, they will all end up at the earth's center of gravity.
First of all, do they have mass? Any reason to sink or fall relative to the density of the media around them?
If yes, then they will all converge at the earth's center, compressed in a superdense sphere of ectoplasm. And there will be no observances at the earth's surface.

With the windows closed, the air in the car moves with the car and so do the things flying in it.
With the windows open, there is no clear boundary separating the inner air from the outer air. You have turbulance on the boundaries between the air from the outside and air trapped in pockets by the back window, near the floor, etc. The hummingbird would be caught in this turbulence until it avoided it either by going out the window or finding a quiet spot away from the turbulence inside.
d): too much thought and too little experiment. Mass and energy are why this thought experiment doesn't work out.
One for you: you pass a string all around the world at ground level at the equator. How much longer do you have to make it in order for it to clear the earth by one foot all the way around?

we need to distinguish between "neutral" as in halfway in-between, ie, Georgia-Florida in Jacksonville, and one-off change-of-venue, as in Dubai.

the charge Clark was eventually convicted of was considerably watered down; two witnesses said the Seattle Times was the first to talk to them about the incident since the day it happened.
This gives me the feeling that powers were working in Clark's behalf long before the NFL came along. The legal case is the NFL's cover; witnesses there may be, but no serious conviction came out of it.

the html for "line break."
The subject line doesn't accept html and consequently renders html tags as literals.
I suspect you have to select "plain text editor" to get html tags to work On the other hand, it is difficult to get an html tag such as <br> to show as a literal in the body of the text without switching to "rich text editor"; in plain text mode, this requires a complicated expression the sytax for which I forget.
