not get sanctioned for APR? Is it because basketball involves too few people to affect APR?
|1 day 23 hours ago||"<br>" is, I believe,||
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.

I cheered actively for Florida in 1997 to get FSU out of M's way. It worked.

"Go Blue" to a guy sitting in a pickup decked out in M bumper stickers. He stared at me blankly.
Finally, I awkwardly explained I was responding to the bumper sticker on his truck. He said, "Oh. This isn't my truck."

in the South, that sounds like an everyday regionalism. Actually, it would go "Aww, hail yeah!"

not to include the AFL draft from 1960-68? Joe O'Donnel, for instance, played his career at the Buffalo Bills starting in the AFL in 1964.

If you mean "scrap ESPN altogether," that seems a little extreme.
But I could learn to like it.

a Full House redux is the perfect vehicle for a sensitive treatment of addiction behavior, the pressures of stardom, self-destructive tendencies, and other topics and behavioral issues of interest to a younger audience who I assume are its intended target.

it works as a tie-breaker in some of these bloated 14-team conferences, all a "conference championship (= otiose and flatulent money grab)" does is create the condition for a 6-loss conference champion (wasn't that UCLA one year?). If the "conference" is big enough that no team from one division ever need see one from the other, then it is a de-facto playoff. More often, it is just a symptom of season bloat. I have despised this concept ever since K State sent Oklahoma to a MNC game against LSU as a conference runner-up, or whatever you call the indisputably better overall team that loses a "conference championship." If you are going to have the goddamn thing, then go ahead and send UCLA to the MNC playoff as the officially designated conference champion with six losses, just so long as every team at least has a path to get there.
That said, I don't mind eight slots rather than four in a playoff any more than I mind "wild card" slots in the pros. If a three-loss team can endure three rounds of single-elimination against the other best teams, or at least, conference champions, around, then, to me, they are a champion. College teams can develope during the course of a season, too, and the team that wins when put in a playoff situation is the champion.
If we have to chose between eight and four, I take eight, because I think you get less skew in the results by putting "too many" teams in than by leaving teams out. 2004 Auburn.

all the way to three consecutive division championships, which they clearly hadn't accomplished without him.
Given the unravelling we have seen over the off-season, it appears that Harbaugh's refusal to acknowledge they were "over the mountain" and had "already made it" -- after barely losing a Superbowl -- were the only things holding the 49ers' winning ways together.
It appears now that 49ers management is an org that repells winning ways and is wedded to some one of the innumerable ways of perpetual losing. Hiring Harbaugh turned out to be not just what you do to try to look like you are trying to win, but actually resulted in the 49ers doing what they had to do to win, Jed York included. They couldn't all accept it or adjust to it. Their refusal to adapt to winning ways made Harbaugh a gift from them to UM.

For years I've been flogging my memory to try to remember what years of SNL, which SNL-inspired screwball comedy or which of the last three episodes of Star Wars I had seen him in.
At last, closure.
