"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

In San Francisco for a work conference. Drinking Kirin at a sushi joint in Lower Nob Hill.
I will be ditching the conference to watch the game. No need for bar advice, I've had this planned out since the trip was booked. Unfortunately I can't expense booze.

Reminded me of that Patriots play too. Would not surprise me if Harbaugh is tapped into NFL wrinkles every week.
Harbs tweaked it with Hill breaking off a slant fake into the out (beautiful route!) whereas Pats relied on the defense keying Gronk, who also set a bit of a pick for Chandler on a quick out.

I dislike the ads for reasons stated above, but never felt duped nor has any of this impacted my habits here. I had a feeling the decision-making that went into rolling them out was not taken lightly and your efforts there are second to none. Thanks as always for your participation in the discussion and willingness to explain in detail and adjust based on consumer feedback.

I graduated in 2005 and post sparingly and I'm with you Squader. I don't doubt that the guys from Homesure and Draft Kings have been personally and professionally great to the blog, but had a similar response. Somewhat counterintuitively, advertising in the brilliant voice of the MGoStaff (even when embedded transparently and executed earnestly) is more viscerally upsetting than the most obnoxious banner I've seen here. I think many would pay to avoid any form of advertising, get exclusive access to maybe one piece of front page content a week, and have a board area for members only or "mute" feature. I'm looking at the "when did this place become MLive?" crowd with the latter.
Worth looking into; maybe Brian already has. A subscription model would come with its own challenges and could make this enterprise even more business than labor of love in the worst way. If not for you or I, for the operators. We don't have the position nor information to make that call, but I'd be interested in a board poll gauging price point and expected benefits.
I'm in for $100 a year/$10 a month, and embarassed to admit I haven't shown that with beveled guilt until tonight.

I checked this agains the front page post from last week. Minor changes on offense and special teams, nothing new on defense. Anything I missed?
|12 weeks 1 day ago||What is this... depth?||
I'm not the type to assume anything these days, but hopefully we will see some of the depth on Saturday. Would be reassuring to be in control enough to get live action for the backups.

Can't disagree with the bits about proper classification or overdiagnosis, but diabetes is also just a genetic predisposition with some strong lifestyle factors. A weak will can bring it on, and a strong will can help you significantly control symptoms. So I don't think the break between "mental illness" and "disease" is as simple as the measure of personal responsibility.

I had the same thought. Parents funding the full cost of attendance for their kid could reasonably be given this option. Whether that's feasible is a different question.
However, I'm completely against any such notification for an 18+ student who pays their own way. Unless there are some laws here I'm unaware of, which is entirely possible.
On a related note - anyone know if certain grants/scholarships have the right to know whether their awardees are cited for alcohol/drug incidents, and if yes do they have the right to pull your funding?

huh. so basically a 2.5 yard completion/rush/catch are all "zeroed out" as equal instead of having different values in most leagues. i would have to see a comparison of top 10 players in that system vs standard scoring to get a better sense of the impact, but i'm not sure i really agree with its representation of value.

Nowadays everybody wanna write like we're stuck in a rut, and no players stand out when they make a post, not a single tight end boast, the motherfuckers act like they forgot about Butt.

Decided to read the Willie Williams article and came across this nugget:
Emphasis mine on that familiar line...

Not much. Significant one is Tony Bennett, and he is the son of previous UW coach Dick Bennett so you could make a case that's more the Bennett coaching tree than Ryan's.

Ah, the childhood memories from their location in the old Franklin Park (now Westfield) mall in Toledo. Used to love a classic Olga with a lemonade after swim practice.
Haven't been to one in years but hate to see local businesses disappear.

Not to mention the negs from his shadow profiles (minimum 3). -1 for everyone, -4 if he really doesn't like you, and at least a +5 for his own posts. No coincidence.

Just having a bit of fun, as I realize you are. So please- do your thing with the re-tread dead kid jokes. I did mine with the unfounded implication that you're ugly. Probably the first and last time.

At the risk of insulting the Blobfish, I'm guessing your reflection looks something like this:

Batting 0/2, Dudeness. Whiffed on the first attempt at that joke, then doubled down as though people didn't get it the first time. The Fugitive went there with the very first comment, then IB6UB9 followed and also got a pretty uneven response. Tasteless and unoriginal, with a side of not funny. Always a winning combination.
