|4 days 18 hours ago||It looks like||
UN's AAU membership was a difference-maker getting them into the B1G, only to have it pulled almost immediately thereafter.
|5 days 2 hours ago||They||
played both, at least back in the Big Eight days.
In 1971, UN, OU and UC ended 1-2-3 in the CFB rankings. I don't recall a conference tour-de-force like that since.
|5 days 2 hours ago||I've been||
fully aware of Boren for decades now.
It might still have escaped my notice that he was currently serving as president of OU.
|5 days 2 hours ago||"HEDGE-||
I've seen this word a lot used to discuss Bretton Woods and the international US dollar standard, but not yet CFB conference expansion.
House that Rockne Built's "Stuffing the Passer" series made a conceptual link between CFB conference expansion and European imperialism in a 2011 episode entitled "The Berlin Conference," yet still managed to avoid using the word "hegemony," as far as I recall.
|5 days 9 hours ago||According||
to The Global Research University Profiles(GRUP) project conducted by the Center for World-Class Universities (CWCU) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2011, Rutgers is 39th in the US, 2 ahead of Ohio State U (61st globally), and Oklahoma is tied for 109-31 (301-400).
I had to go through 2 pages of Google to get to a ranking that wasn't done by US News and World Report.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Oakland||
is in play?
I'll be going now.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I say||
go back to "Western Conference."
|5 days 10 hours ago||I think he means||
Notre Dame del Norte.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Spencer, as always, an entertaining read.||
Per this link, Boren is in the news again, in a story that also mentions North Dakota State as an expansion target.
Not convinced? How about now:
I expect it's easier to double your population if you are Fargo than if you are New York City.
After this and the Frat Song Crisis, I wonder how it sits in Oklahoma to have more people know who the president of your flagship university is than your governor?
|5 days 10 hours ago||Certainly we can find an eligible sporting club in||
Saint Stephens, AL;
Saint Regis Falls, NY;
Sioux Falls, South Dakota;
Saint Charles, South Carolina; or, (please)
Saint Chrysostome, Quebec.
|5 days 10 hours ago||If||
they derive pleasure from it despite knowing of the malice and contempt with which I did it, I think that only add to the perverse thrill of the despicable deed.
|5 days 11 hours ago||We could split the conference||
down the middle with an Original Seven and a Newbee Seven.
Michigan would have to join OSU in the Newbee Seven due to the hiatus in membership from 1907-1917.
Or, we could reclaim the University of Chicago and join them in a Real Big 10 with OSU, and let MSU join The Rest.
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?)
Whatever happened to Iowa Pre-Flight?
|5 days 11 hours ago||I like||
the idea of reducing Texas to a vassal state within the B1G, perhaps with a probationary period where they split Longhorn Network revenue with the other 13 teams of the B1G before they get entitled to a split of B1G Network revenue.
Rutgers to the Big-whatever-it-is at the moment as a trade-off.
I think Oklahoma academics will leave it in the cold for the time being. Did Nebraska ever get re-admitted to the AAU?
|1 week 1 day ago||I know it's too late||
to take your virginity, but can I have the box it came in?
|1 week 1 day ago||Do you have any Irish in you?||
Would you like to?
|1 week 1 day ago||You probably never||
talked to a woman without having to give her your credit card number.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not the brightest bulb||
in the marquee.
|1 week 1 day ago||What did the leper say to the prostitute?||
"Just keep the tip."
|1 week 1 day ago||I bet the locution goes over better||
when you can back it up with actions.
|1 week 1 day ago||What do you say to a banjo player||
in a three-piece suit?
"Will the defendant please rise?"
|1 week 1 day ago||Timing||
|1 week 1 day ago||Your dress||
looks like an unmade bed.
|1 week 1 day ago||You can't fall||
off the floor.
|1 week 1 day ago||I know "origami."||
And seven other Japanese words.
|1 week 5 days ago||Not||
"OT," per MgoFAQ:
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Gentlemen,|
|2 weeks 1 day ago||And we thought||
we were free of "wow factor" when DB was shown the door.
It's never that easy, is it?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe "conflict"||
should be in quotation marks.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Probably||
not worth singling out the Pats over all the other organizations, especially with the shoddy investigative process and delusional thought process required to do it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Again,||
using a locution like "concerned citizens" or "organization of well-payed and highly-educated individuals" would have left plenty of room for false conclusions about who this was, so an informative locution was probably not uncalled for.
If I understand correctly, this was the American Enterprise Institute. OP should have just called them by name.
Left-wing anarcho-socialist Bolsheviks like myself might have recoiled at first, but I'd click on anything with the words "debunks Wells Report."
I agree that the politics of the organization in question neither adds nor detracts any more than in the case of Jonathan Chait's call-out of the F-word paper's hit job on UM in fall 2009.
