Dad might be doing some more crying in the future.

If none of the members of the frats or sororities are willing to talk or rats each other out, I'd threaten to expell or suspend all six of the groups. When facing getting kicked out of school and ruining their future, some are bound to talk. But if they don't and want to band together as a group, then they can do down as a group.
|3 days 18 hours ago||It IS a serious crime||
Here what I don't think you get: this isn't a petty crime. Its $100k in damages plus probably 2-3x that much in lost revenue. That's a shit ton of money, and considering it came at the peak of their season this is a huge, huge blow to those hotel's livelihood.
The fact that you can't understand that is amazing.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Yes, I would like that||
By the time all damages and lost revenue is accounted for, they'll have caused over $100k in damages. This is small time, petty stuff. This is felony level damage.
So A) fuck those kids. And B) I hope they are expelled and go to jail. Just because they are young and/or rich doesn't matter. The world is a harsh place with consequences. In the same way it doesn't work for rape or drunk driving, "oops I was drunk and we were just having fun" isn't an excuse.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Re-retire that number||
I really hope they re-retire that number. At least for QBs. Seeing that on a QB anytime soon would give me some serious PTSD.
|4 days 14 hours ago||The NFL argument||
The "not every game day is 75" NFL argument is kinda dumb. You're going to spend 3-5 years in college before ever getting the chance to play in the NFL. So why not spend it in someplace nice like LA? It'll be one of the last times you'll be able to chose where you want to live. And if you've never been, UCLA has a really, really beautiful campus. The alure of that is going to be tough to overcome while we all dig out of a blizzard here in CT.

Maybe a few weeks after NSD. (Malik McDowell...never forget).

ESPN pulled in 28M viewers for each of the semifinal games and 33M for the final. For comparison, the AFC Championship game on CBS (America's most watched network) pulled in 37M viewers.
And ESPN paid $7.3B for the rights to the playoffs. They aren't moving it to another network. Even though ABC is part of the same company, its more beneficial to keep the game on ESPN than move it to ABC.
|4 days 15 hours ago||The main issue here is that||
The main issue here is that the semifinal games are on New Years Eve the next two years. The Alabama - Ohio State game was done at 12:45am ET this year so hosting prime time games on NYE is pretty stupid. Far fewer people will want to go and watch them.
Another thing moving the two semifinal games to Jan 2 would fix is that the seminfinals should be played after the other NY6 games. There was a nice build up to the Rose and Sugar this year and made the four games before feel a little more important. Playing the ahead of time will make the games on New Years pretty anticlimatic.
Personally I hope ESPN gets their way because the way the CFB Playoff people have set it up is stupid.

Clark isn't committing until signing day. He's lined up to commit on ESPNU's coverage
|1 week 12 hours ago||Especially when you consider||
Especially when you consider how much Mattison and Borges/Nuss were making. If I remember right, they were both paid around top 5-10'ish for coordinators. To go from there, and bump the whole pool up 25% or more is big.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Yeah, but given that Harbaugh||
Yeah, but given that Harbaugh will be making around $7M by 2017 or so, if an NFL wants to hire him away from Michigan, they'll have to be prepared to pay in that $7-8/yr range. So, something like a 5 year $40M deal. If they are prepared to pay that, then I don't think a $5-10M buyout on top of that would really scare them away.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Asst pool is pretty big too||
At $4-5M, the pool for his assistants is a good bit bigger than Hoke's was ($2.5-3.5M) and Hoke's OC and DC were some of the highest paid in CFB. Hoke's assistant pool also included S&C salary. Harbaugh's does not. That's pretty encouraging as well.
And given all of the escalators and bonuses, Harbaugh should be up in Saban territory ($7M/yr) within 2-3 seasons.
No pressure or anything Jim.
|1 week 15 hours ago||It made no sense||
Iverson was on the downside of his career too and was the opposite type of PG that the Pistons had success with. Joe D just had a massive hard on for Iverson (after coming very close to getting him earlier in his career) and couldn't resist. Chauncey actually had better stats in his final year with the Pistons than Iverson did in his first and only year.
Another thing here is that Chauncey and Rip were very close. Joe D traded Chauncey at the same time he resigned Rip to a longer deal, which pissed Rip off and made him more of a malcontent. And then in the following offseason, Joe D went and signed Ben Gordon to play the same damn positiion as Rip and also signed Charlie V. So he essentially traded away Chauncey for a redundant SG and a worthless PF. And they still didn't have a PG because he completely overestimated Stuckey's capabilities as a PG. Those moves killed their cap and flexibility for years.
It wasn't the Darko move or the Josh Smith move that killed the Pistons. It was the snowball effect created by trading Chauncey that killed the team.

Suspend the frat and expell anyone responsible. Give these assholes a real life education lesson.

Cmon man....that's not a vacuum the mess amount of damage. That's a go to jail amount of damage.
|1 week 2 days ago||Have to assume some air loss during the game||
Plus, those balls take a beating during the game getting crushed and squished constantly by very large men. I highly doubt that a ball that's filled at 12.5 psi will still be 12.5 psi after going through a game. I mean, they have to lose some air during the course of the game, which would also alter the final pressure.
|1 week 2 days ago||Me too||
Would like to see the math and science behind this. A simple "no" doesn't do anything for anyone. Seems like the perfect Sports Science segment. Like if you fill a ball to 12.5 psi inside a 70 degree room, and then go play with it outside in 40 degree weather for 4 hours, what PSI should you expect the ball to be at when you read the PSI back inside the 70 degree room after the game? Or even the next day depending on when they rechecked these balls.
I'd even like to see some variations on this. Like what if you filled the ball with 100 or 120 degree air?
|1 week 2 days ago||That's something that I'm||
That's something that I'm wondering too. If they are measured indoors at a warm temp, what's a normal expectation for deflation when they are outside and cold? And if you bring them back inside after the game, what's a normal expectation for PSI loss during the course of the game? Feels like there's a lot of science missing in this whole thing.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||And questioned why everyone was making such a big deal about it||
And then questioned why everyone was making such a big deal about this. Well, you tweeted out "life changing decision at 3pm", changed it to 4pm, and held a press conference. What an asshole.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Or the Pats or Saints||
I could see a team like the Pats or the Saints, or even Green Bay take a look at Jones. Stash him on the bench for a couple of years, develop him, and then he's ready if/when your starter decides to hang 'em up.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I didn't say "any"||
I didn't say he didn't make any mistakes, I said he didn't make many. The fumble was bad, but he made a lot of good decisions and threw some great deep balls.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Austin Powers||
Dr. Evil describing his upbringing:
“My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloé with webbed feet. My father would womanize; he would drink; he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament…”
|2 weeks 1 day ago||What would another season really show?||
It is a bit crazy, but the three games he's played were three big time games, and two of those teams were really good. I mean, look at what he did vs Oregon's defense compared to what Jameis did. And Jameis is being touted as a top 10 type of QB. Jones didn't make many mistakes in any of the games, so would another season of games where he beats up on the Rutgers and Indianas of the world really show NFL types that much more?
He's excelled on the highest stages in CFB, and that's really all the NFL guys are looking for. Another season wouldn't do much to change that.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||That was Tuesday morning||
Yeah, that was on Tuesday. I was at that press conference and it was pretty interesting. Urban seemed a lot higher on Cardale's NFL future than Cardale was. Urban said his stock will likely never be higher. And Meyer said that he hadn't talked to Jones about the NFL at that point yet either.
So I'm guessing the two of them had a conversation shortly after, got some feedback from NFL types, and with all the uncertaintly about Ohio State's offense (don't forget they lost Herman too)...it just makes more sense to go pro even though he's only started three games.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Jameis||
I think Jameis is Jamarcus 2.0. They have almost identical college stats and both have a penchant for off-field buggery.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||To be fair...||
To be fair, I changed my signature to that when after every single semi-negative comment I posted about Hoke was met with "BUT, BUT, BUT....BRADY HOKE IS THE FUCKING MAN, HOW DARE YOU SAY SOMETHING BAD!!!" I decided to just say fuck it, and go with that. Because despite mounds of evidence to the contrary people thought Hoke was awesome and shat roses.
So 1) I told y'all so, and 2) you're right. Its time to change it.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Because anyone that is||
Because anyone that is looking for their third transfer is a head case. I don't want that at QB, and Harbaugh sure as shit won't want that.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He gone||

Wasn't Jim, it was John Harbaugh the coach of the Ravens.
