Visited there when looking at colleges, they had a pretty good engineering program too. And I kid you not, the whole town had a distinct odor of manure. Thank the cows.

However I can name quite a few of the "best players in the NBA" and elite talents who have never won without an elite coach... many of them who were great but didn't win until Phil showed up:
MJ, Kobe, Shaq, Duncan, etc. never won a title without an elite coach. The last few titles without an elite coach took 3 of the best players in the league teaming up and possibly colluding to do so (Celtics and Heat)
|2 days 10 hours ago||Illinois = Chicago||
Don't forget when it comes to population the city/suburbs of Chicago has around 10 million people. The city itself has produced a whole lot of elite basketball talent (Isaiah Thomas, D Rose, Garnett, Jabari Parker, etc etc etc) in addition to the city having lots of smaller, historically (if not recently) good basketball schools (DePaul, etc) plus the impact of Michael Jordan, when everyone really did Wanna Be Like Mike.
I guess what I'm saying is there are a whole lot of influences that make Illinois and specifically Chicago a good incubator for hoops talent.
As to why that hasn't translated into wins in Champaign... I'm not sure.

He's going to be the GM. The question is whether or not Dolan gives him leeway to actually be a GM. This is the guy who thought that re-hiring Zeke would be a good basketball move. If he gets out of Phil's way, the Knicks roster might actually become something worth working with.

All leg, quite skinny, probably has some whippet in her, real darty and real fast. I'm going with Jeremy Gallon - maybe not the absolute fastest top end speed, but she'll get open

I don't think he'll ever get rid of the 2004. Most of the development work on the 6R80 is driven (ha!) by the F-150 because of volumes, etc. and it was designed and in production well before my time here, but I have had a small hand in some of its upgrades/development
|6 days 11 hours ago||It's down to preference||
And real world mileage. I prefer a manual so I drive one. I also get better than epa mileage regularly, while that's much harder to do in automatics because of how the EPA tests.
Also, can I ask which car you're looking at? Most likely my company has parts in it, as we do in most 8 speed autos, but depending on the model I may have worked on localizing the parts to NA myself!
Since I keep asking, I'm currently in a VW CC 2.0T 6M and my next car is most likely going to be a GTI, but the Focus ST will get a fair shot too.

"Remember when Mitch McGary went down and everyone panicked, but Michigan still won an outright Big Ten title?"
Awesome column BiSB. Hats off to JMo for a great career.
|6 days 11 hours ago||I work in the industry and I'm a huge car nerd||
If you get one with an automatic, it's got parts that come out of my plant and that I helped design.
My boss has a 2004 Mustang GT, he claims his biggest regret in life was selling his 69 mustang back when... best of luck with it!

I wanted a black car with a manual transmission, they traded for one (they were thrilled to get rid of the beige one I drove. Good luck selling beige to someone who wants 3 pedals). Dealers trade cars all the time, they should be able to find you what you want.
A good option is to call a second dealer, let them know that you're having trouble getting the car you want, see what they'll do for you. Another option that helps with haggling is Costco - they have deals set up for member prices at lots of dealerships. Both of these options give you leverage over the dealer that you're dealing with. As soon as they know that you can happily get your car elsewhere for a better price, they'll haggle.
|6 days 13 hours ago||What Car?||
See, now I'm just wondering what car you're looking for with orders ending in 3 weeks that means it's something with an all-new 2015 model coming out this fall (summer tooling changeover). I would guess that you want an F-150, but those are all over the place and easy to get. I'm going with you want to get a Mustang with the solid axle before those go away.

Saw a commotion at a party, it was Pettway and the whole BBall team trying to get in. Went over to try to calm things down, came over yelling "what's going on?" with someone saying, do you know who this is??? This is AIR GEORGIA! Let him in! Ended up staring up at him, he was very friendly and just looking to have a good time.

Before we disparage part of the 3-headed-monster, let's not forget that Bill Wennington is currently the Bulls radio color analyst, where he does a fine job of being totally corny and somewhat helpful and not at all objective. He often talks about the time when he and Michael Jordan combined for 57 points in MSG (MJ's famous return game)
Anyone who has a MF'n MCDONALDS sandwich named after them surely has a fan base/following:
Beef Wennington – A burger solely offered in the Chicago area in 1998–1999, named after former Chicago Bulls player Bill Wennington. It featured a single patty topped with cheese, onions, barbecue sauce and a slice of Canadian bacon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_McDonald's_products

It's telling that the Eagles owner commented as well. There's a whole lot of respect for Avant around that organization.
