|1 week 2 days ago||more about the spread||
thanks for the post.
mgoblog loves the numbers and you can read a lot from when/where money comes in. sounds like you're onto that but i'm not sure everyone understands basics of the spread, the idea of line movement and public vs the sharps. you could link to an existing article (or something you write) as "recommended reading for the novice" at top of each weekly post.

Pretty good track record for guys named Woodson. I hope a (or The) mathlete gets to work on that to help me know whether we should be recruiting ALL THE WOODSON.

|4 weeks 3 days ago||kinda understand...||
I can appreciate the moral lesson of "dont punch ANYONE in the face." And with no legal knowledge to stand on, I think the court of law considers it an equal charge regardless of genders involved (pregnant women and domestic abuse aside)? That said, the court of public opinion has spoken: it's just not the same.

Late to the thread but thought maybe no one would have suggested the 'Skins. That's my pick on account of the NFC (L)East as well.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||Riot Fest||
I've been hearing that opinion a lot around Chicago. For my money I'd probably agree, but it depends on your tastes. Festival experience be damned, Lolla has a solid lineup for rap/hip-hop, radio rock, EDM. Riot Fest is (or at least presents itself) more in the original "alternative" spirt of Lolla. No coincidence then that the man who created Lolla is headlining Riot Fest with Jane's Addiction.

Just saw the Mantras at the Tonic Room in Chicago on Saturday night. Pretty damn impressive show- they took maybe 90 seconds total across 3 "set breaks" but basically played non-stop for 2+ hours.

I posted "Lowered Expectations" as a reply to the first reply, and now see I was beaten to the punch. Sorry for inadvertently stealing the reference and posting higher in the thread...

|11 weeks 2 days ago||Defender on sideline||
The defender who slipped was Besler. But he didn't slip so much as get boxed out at full speed, bouncing off the fresh-legged 6'3" Lukaku. Great hustle to recover before he appeared to get overzealous losing contain to De Bruyne's right foot. I agree that's forgiveable, especially since Besler was solid throughout.
Wondo's miss in the 91st is the bitter pill. That was our chance to steal it for Howard.

|15 weeks 3 days ago||When did I say that?||
I think the issue is that I've gotten off track a bit from the question of whether universities should be involved. I'm not sure how to approach that and recognize it does run the risk of apparent guilt without due process.
My issue is that "but what about the falsely accused!?" is used as a straw man for limiting societal efforts to prevent and properly punish sexual crimes. There just aren't any numbers to back up the claim that false accusations are a serious problem in our society that needs addressing. Meanwhile, a significant percentage of offenders get to "glide past due process" by never even appearing in a police station or court.

I'm not the authority on which victimization is "worse," but the justice system (and society at large) already does a pretty good job of protecting people from punitive consequence for committing (and even moreso being falsely accused of) sexual offenses. Protecting the victims of those crimes? Seems like there is room for improvement. So I've taken my stand there and it seems you have as well.
I don't begrudge you for the opposing position, but it really runs the risk of minimizing the impact of sexual offense by emphasizing something like "for the rest of [the falesly accused] lives," as though being a victim of sexual offense doesn't carry consequence for the rest of one's life. Or that "there is a 100% difference between being the victim of false accusation, and not being one," as though there is no grey area between sexual misconduct charges from a university and a criminal conviction of rape.
I do agree that it's a huge unknown as to whether harsher prosecution (or anything that results in a greater number of falsely accused receiving punishment) would relate to any reduction in the number of sexual offenses committed overall. The larger issue of how to reduce sexual crimes on campus or in society at large (and whether or not universities have a place in that effort) is much more complex.
