Peppers at 10, which seems low.

The CIC has probably always been the most important outcome of the Big Ten's existence. But the OP is slightly mistaken. U-Chicago is no longer a member. That was just announced today and is a likely impetus for the name change. The likely impetus for U-Chicago leaving? That's hard to confirm; however, they did recently threaten to leave if the Big Ten ever accepted "another" non-AAU institution. So the issue appears to have been somewhat brought on by adding UNL.

This conversation always suffers terribly because we can't have it without talking about photographs taken from different cameras in different lighting viewed on different computer screens.
Also, the original maize was always slightly orange. The new jerseys only seem "wrong" by reference to the highlighter yellow that preceded them. In actuality, they are very close to the original maize.

3-4 days because I procrastinated before a neuroanatomy exam. The worst part was flying through material that I expected to hate but rapidly learned I loved and could never, studying like that, do justice.

Based on medical hardship history and depth chart this was both their most important sixth year application and their one most likely to succeed. Davis is the best player out of he, Knox and Clemons, but Davis's position group is the most loaded. MSU needs this OL returnee badly.

Who cares? Summoning all of one's resources is neither new nor unwise. Frankly, it's a major cause of our collective Harbaugh celebrating.

Can you prove that Sankey FOIA jet fuel thing? Spare your comment in this thread, Google has nothing to show for it.

How is this different than any of the partisan stuff coming from Alabama slappies in the south? Because Harbaugh is our guy.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Sure. But does that address||
Sure. But does that address the question? I wasn't asking why someone was playing at 9:30. I'm specifically wondering why Michigan is playing at 9:30.
For now, it matters much less, for us, competitively, what happens in the other half of the bracket, but in our half of the bracket, there are two Game 1 times. And it's surprising that the NCAA didn't have us go first. Especially as "higher seed plays first" is conventionalized.
In a multigame tourney where fatigue might eventually become a factor, there is a slight advantage to going first and resting longer. Even if we are just talking about 2.5 hours, that should always go to the highest seed.
But yeah, tv ratings may have played into this here. And maybe we do want Betsa pitching at night. However, I'm not as sure on those as I am on the (albeit faint) advantage of extra rest after game one.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I prefer the convention||
I prefer the convention whereby the higher seed plays earlier in Round 1, so as to have at least an extra couple of hours between game 1 and game 2 than their lower-seeded challenger.
Basically: Why do we play the 9:30 game, rather than the 7:00 one? It would seem to be exactly the kind of faint disadvantage that the highest seed shouldn't have to deal with.
|9 weeks 18 hours ago||I honestly have no idea. I'm||
I honestly have no idea. I'm almost finished as an MD/PhD student and have always envisioned myself doing the 80/20 research/clinical thing: basically, I'd run a lab, design drugs and teach most of the time, then be a physician during the remainder. But now...I can't tell anymore whether that sounds awesome (or excrutiating).
I'm getting married this summer and we're honeymooning in Iceland, mostly to chase the backpacking challenges, diverse geological stories, and wildlife. Learning about mountain guides and watching these documentaries is making me realize how many other paths are possible. Maybe I should try to freelance for National Geographic, consult for law firms/corporations, and/or act as an independent author on the side.
For me, picking one path seems...impossible.
|10 weeks 21 hours ago||Observation: Threads like this rarely end well||
I suspect if someone goes through the effort to catalog the information you want, they will be far more likely to start their own thread rather than bury the info in the depths of this one. It's a good question. But if you care enough to answer it, you are best off sweating through the google searches and then getting full credit for organizing the info.

There's a reason he left UNL. Sounds like a nice kid and eternal scout teamer. Will help their depth dilemma.

The spring game grin. To me, it's reminiscent of the most pleasant kind of poetry.
As for the grinch one: Actually, it ranks in my lower quartile of favorite Harbaugh gifs.

I think this thread has blown the tweet out of proportion. This is neither pointed, nor is the intent fully obvious.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I tend to stock: one bottle||
I tend to stock:
one bottle of Bourbon (usually Makers Mark),
one bottle of single malt (any of the "Glens"),
one bottle of Vodka (who cares?), and
one bottle of gin (exclusively Hendrick's).
Of these, I find that scotch is my favorite, that Bourbon is the most versatile, and that gin--as far as personal taste goes--is the one for which there is the largest difference between brands**.
**(Of course, there's an even larger difference between, say, Johnny Red and Glenlivet, but I deliberately specified the scotches to be single malts)

|11 weeks 2 days ago||I'll be the Philosophy Douche Canoe||
The "fundamental attribution error" explains why it is *always* plainly illogical to judge *people* on the basis of their *actions*.
However there is zero logical basis to avoid judging a person's behavior in itself. I know zero about this kid as a person but on that one day during that one minute he *behaved* reprehensibly. He may otherwise be kind and super cool. And it's absolutely the case that sometimes - because...circumstances, man - we all eff up.
But that was still objectively terrible behavior.

With all due respect, I think you vastly underestimate the complexities of cancer. There can never be a universal "cure for cancer." With much more time and research, the best we can hope for is "twenty thousand cures for twenty thousand cancers."
|12 weeks 3 days ago||On the contrary, Count A appears to be your conclusion||
I didn't foresee season tickets hitting the market place in advance of their print date. No doubt. But despite my naivety on that, "future" season tickets are obviously a source of tickets in addition to the individuals ones set to go on sale in six weeks.
That folds into option A. I mean...I explicitly specified "season ticket holders" as a hypothetical explanation.

Except for the news (to me, it is news) that sellers can back out within 60 days of purchase, I find this all very encouraging. Thanks!

That sounds bad for Shafer. I know it's trite to say (not to mention presumptuous given scant details) but I really do hope he and his family are OK.
I'm also hoping Durkin succeeds at UMd.
|17 weeks 12 hours ago||Touching anyone when it isn't||
Touching anyone when it isn't wanted is technically assault. And touching anyone in a sexual way when it isn't wanted is therefore sexual assault. And all sexual assault can be prosecuted. This qualifies. It may seem small, but that's because it is a relatively new tendency in criminal law, which is primarily because society has been really big on the subjugation of women for a really long time.
