Peppers at 10, which seems low.

|1 day 13 hours ago||Can somebody explain why a 6||
Can somebody explain why a 6 team playoff is so much better than just going to 8? 6 just recreates the problem we had in the two team playoff (BCS Championship) days: team #2 and team #3 are usually very hard to distinguish, both often have a reasonable claim to be #1, and the benefit to being #2 vs. #1 is huge. A bye is way too big of a reward for the arbitrary distinction betwen 2 and 3.
The only downside with 8 is that you'll probably end up with a couple of championship game losers in the playoff, but you could fix it by only allowing conference winners in - this might create some tomato cans for the top seeds, but that's still better than a bye.

Would really love if they made a "leaping Woodson" version of Jumpman, seeing as CW is a Jordan sponsored athlete. They won't, but it would be awesome.

I like the thin M in small doses as a throwback, but the Block M is the official logo and I highly prefer it for general use. It also looks much better in modern designs - it looks good on the "old school" Bo hat and Harbaugh pullover, but not much else.

I always thought of it like the ubiquitous tour tees that bands put out. I like it.

The Jumpman does take up a lot of real estate, probably because it's thin (all arms and legs, after all) so it has to be big to be "legible".

Yuck. All white is a Texas and Penn State thing and I'd prefer we differentiate ourselves from both as much as possible.

Not a good look, but I'll withold final judgement till we see if he donates to something else. Plenty of people have gotten their names on things for smaller donations, so I don't think it's ridiculous for Bernstein to expect a Bernstein something-or-other for a 7 figure donation (though it would have been better to renogotiate a name for the original deal - maybe a plaque, a ballroom, and an endowed scholarship or something). Yeah it takes a bit of ego to want a building named after you, but it's not like he invented the money for naming rights game.

And there are people who believe they can hear the difference between Monster cables and Amazon generic in digital audio. It's a thing called the placebo effect.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Yeah, buy your irons as a||
Yeah, buy your irons as a set. Find out if you like hitting hybrids/utility clubs - a lot of novices find them easier to hit consistently than long irons. Some "game improvement" iron sets replace at least the 4 and 3 iron with utilities, which keeps you from having to go back and replace them.

Also, buy last year's stuff. It doesn't change that much but it's usually half price.

This is literally what people were saying to all the Adidas bitching, and what we warned about when everyone was falling all over themselves about how amazing Nike would be. Give us our "I told you so" moment.

|1 week 16 hours ago||Why on earth would anyone||
Why on earth would anyone "love" a shirt where Nike branding gets just as much real estate as Michigan (literally pasted on top of Michigan)? These are aesthetically no better than the same Adidas crap that got ridiculed, but you're fawning over them because you're a Nike brand whore. Go root for Oregon if the Swoosh means that much to you.

The current foul fest adds really... slow... choppy... artificial drama at the end of the game at the expense of the first 90%. Most competitive games there's essentially no stakes until there are less than 5 minutes left.

Even if you're not very good, fitting will be a big help if you're anything but average in terms of height, how upright you stand, etc. Those won't change much even if your swing improves. If you don't get fitted you'll be fighting the clubs AND your bad habits.

Honestly, as someone that's been there and still working out of it, most important thing is to improve your diet and do something (almost anything!) relatively intense that you'll do regularly.

If you've got gym access, I like the assisted pull-up machine - I can't do a lot of reps of "real" pull-ups but the machine lets you add weight gradually. Also seems to be a better exercise that just lat pull downs (or at least I personally feel like it's hitting my muscles more effectively)

The issue is that they are ONLY used to get her out of otherwise impossible situations, and spend the rest of the time totally unused and undiscussed, except in her title.

It's more a storytelling problem. Multiple times now we've had insurmountable problem built up for Dany, and rather than do something clever she just Deus Exes it out of the way with "dracaris". The Astapor thing was clever, but they've gone back to the well too many times.
