Grunge came about in the early 90s, when the US was in recession where there was a fairly high level of unemployment, particularly for young people.

He did get blasted pretty hard for it by a lot of folks, but in the Q&A he did here, he spoke about how those came to be and how they're being addressed in subsequent printings.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||I had thought that the law||
I had thought that the law had changed the way it was included, but was still part of the "points," but could not be the deciding factor - or something like that. I'm pretty removed from that part now so you may be correct.
I mean, you're right, of course, but those are 65 pretty powerful positions, as we, Texas and Rutgers have gotten a lot of very public experience with lately.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||We consider it as part of our||
We consider it as part of our criteria for admission to the University, so I think its relevant when considering who we hire to lead it, as well.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||I linked to the report that I||
I linked to the report that I drew the NCAA stats from, but the links are a bad color in the table. They provided some additional breakdown in the report:
That report includes a lot of other stuff about ethnicity in college athletics, as well as within the NCAA itself.

Ugh, forgot about him. Thanks, updated.

He even gets the shimmy in afterwards. Amazing.

If by "profit" you mean they get a little walking around money to pay parking tickets and stuff, then yeah, they do alright.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||It also hasn't helped that||
It also hasn't helped that there are 18 different boxing weight classes, which means unless you're a serious boxing junkie, it can be difficult to keep track of where everyone stands and who the current champ is.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I get the reaction against||
I get the reaction against the perceived hypocrisy, but to say that if you don't like what the organization you work for does, your obligation is to quit before you can criticize it is a pretty strong position. Especially given that its the thing they've been training to do all their lives, they perceive they aren't especialy qualified to do anything else, and they only have a brief period in which they can make any money doing it.

The uh...best...damn pet shop in town!

The opposing defense will play very differently in the closing two minutes of a close game, ceding yards to avoid giving up a big play.

Are Axl and Slash back on speaking terms?
|10 weeks 17 hours ago||Under typical university||
Under typical university endowment assumptions, the principal needs to be at least 20 times the annual draw, so to cover just Edsall's $2.1 million salary would require a $40+ million endowment. UA's doing good, but I doubt they have that kind of cash laying around to invest in UMD football.

$44 for twin beds? That's $11 per athlete per night. I think we've found the way to make bowl trips profitable!

At which point, he stared blankly for a few moments before saying, "What's nadir mean?"

Moreover, have you ever seen them in the same room together?
Didn't think so.

Its because its trying to force playback using Flash, which is disabled in Chrome, Firefox and others by default now as its a massive CF of security holes. When you open in a new tab, it plays it back using Webm as it supposed to.

This was from the comment I was replying to.

There's a ton. Even on a relatively quick read during flights this past weekend, my count got up to a dozen in the print version - everything from missing punctuation and spelling errors to repeated sentences.

That's a bit dismissive of Brandon's responsibility in this. He is not just some automaton that got plugged in to do one thing and one thing only. He shouldn't get a pass just because he is a "turnaround CEO." As someone who has deep connections to the university and supposed extensive business experience, he should be able to recognize when a particular approach isn't working, and either adjust it, find advisors to help him, or step aside to someone who is suited for it.
According to the book, he seemed to recognize those things at the end, but his hubris and egomania - the repeated references to "his reputation" and legacy - suggest that he wasn't able to recognize his own limitations in this role and pressed his connections to get the appointment, and other people who made the decisions shrugged and assumed it would work out. Plenty of blame to go around.

I'm not real interested in games away from Ann Arbor anymore.

Well, I don't know if you've been watching the last few years of Michigan football, but I sure as hell am in no shape to do anything else after three hours of that.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||What do you have against Tim||
What do you have against Tim Roth? Off the top of my head...
I mean, I haven't seen him in anything lately, but he's been decent to good in a number of movies.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||I guess when I saw in the||
I guess when I saw in the trailer, I assumed it was an elevator. Either way, female character stripped down, with a flare, shot waist up as a door is rising up in front - its the same setup as Ripley confronting the queen. That was the first thing I noticed in the trailer.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||The Aliens similarties seem||
The Aliens similarties seem stronger than that. I've only seen the trailer, but even within that it apes some specific shots from Aliens pretty hard (touching the scratch marks on the wall, blood drip/guy looks up, Bryce Dallas Howard in the elevator with the flare).
