"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

For the basketball, you just really need one, overarching stakeholder who could hype the hell out of it enough to make teams follow suit... the WWL. If ESPN bought in to this, guaranteed marquee matchups, even if they don't know where or when right away, it would happen.

I miss when the standard was standard equipment. It actually was/is on all 4 cars that I've owned!

Had a '91 wrangler for 4 years and a '98 for 6. There's room for one in my "dream" garage... where I get more than one vehicle. The jeep was a much better toy than it was a dainly driver. 16MPG is tough to stomach as much as I drive.
The Avatar is the '98, put a new suspension and 32" tires on it. It was a wonderful second car.

I wish the new Wrex came in a hatch. I would have loved to have test driven more than just a Focus ST as competition to the GTI that I got.

You could get a 2015 SS with a manual for a steal. They're selling VERY slowly, I'm sure you could get a deal.

For my life I do need 4 doors and more than a "Frunk". However make mine a Targa in speed yellow or navy and it wouldn't take much arm twisting.
|2 hours 50 min ago||Wagons are actually pretty great||
The most popular body style in America (the compact "CUV") is really just a slightly taller station wagon that gets worse gas mileage. Wagons have all the capability of SUVs that 99% of owners use (true offroading is the 1%), while being much better on gas, often much cheaper, and most times even with more interior volume.
Unfortunately Americans seem to like to sit high up in their cars, so SUVs sell way more.
|2 hours 54 min ago||In my current life...||
As someone about to be married, no kids, living in the city, my 15 GTI is a pretty great all around'er. That said, I would have loved a Golf R were it not more expensive. So, continuing in that vein, how about a 2016 Audi RS3 with a manual? It's the miniature version of the RS7/M5/E63 Wagon that people like above, good for city dwellers like myself, and I can keep 3 pedals.
Lots of good answers on here

But he didn't fumble the next snap either. If we're talking on-field coaching, I think there needs to be balance. Many on here loved Hoke's cool demeanor - especially contrasted to spittle-flying-purple-Brian-Kelly. There are some players who will respond well to screaming, some who will fold, etc. Knowing how to coach everyone to get the best of their abilities is a valuable skill.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Eh...||
I think that a truly great coach coaches each player individually. Some players will respond well to Harbaugh yelling, others would fold. Let's not forget that Hoke's "it's OK" was extremly lauded after Hagerup's big mistake. That was probably exactly what the kid needed at that time.
That said, Brady may have been too far of an "it's OK" coach. I hope Harbaugh's results are better. He sure seems to know when to have a chat and when to have a yell. Hopefully he gets the best out of the players.
(As an aside, I owe you beer. I don't remember if our bet invovled another D. Rose knee surgery or Lebron going to Miami for "Therapy" that definitely didn't involve "showing up out of shape" or "potential alleged steroids*". Howeva, I'll pick a Goose Island 6 pack and get them your way somehow. A bet is a bet. And here's to a great 2nd round that the Bulls win. Found the original thread. I said D Rose would be healthy and you said that LeBron would have crap teammates - that trade was huge. That said, I'll still pay up.

I hope that next year I'm donating for a recent win...
|3 days 18 hours ago||1991 Jeep Wrangler||
red, 4 cyl, 5 speed manual. half doors and a soft top that would let fine snow through but was mostly watertight. perfect first car. slow, convertible in the summer, 4WD in the winter, no abs or traction control so I had to learn to drive without electronics. the kick parking break meant friends were terrified of the 4 pedal layout and never asked to borrow it!

Playing above the rim means that someone's a high flyer, or that most of their work is done through lobs, etc. Someone like DeAndre Jordan is a high flyer. Gets lots of points on lobs, goes over and through people, dunks, etc.
Playing below the rim is more about their post game, footwork, etc. He's not a freak athlete, but rather his post game at 6' 10" probably features the same post moves that mine does at 5' 11".

That's a little big and fancy for my tastes. I liked the size of my TJ - not the LWB, and the 32" tires made midwest wheeling challenging. I'd probably go to a better 3" suspension lift, 33" tires, upgrade to D44s or a D60 rear, electronic locking axles, supercharge the straight 6 and spend way too much money on interior/soft top/hard top accessories.

|1 week 3 hours ago||Miata fun||
Fun =/= fast, fun can be finding the limit. A friend has a slightly built Miata (roll cage, exhaust, cold air modifications) and I remember that in straights my Jeep would own it, but he'd take turns without braking that would have rolled me.
Also saw a Miata a few months ago with the license plate "BRK L8".
The miata might be an answer to one of my future thread questions...
|1 week 3 hours ago||Not 100% surprised||
The Cayman/Boxster have always been underpowered on purporse. They are great handlers, but Porsche has to keep them from overtaking the 911.
As people below have mentioned, I'd love a CTS-V instead, but the RWD aspect would hurt me as a daily driver.
|1 week 5 hours ago||My 4:||
Daily Driver: Audi RS4 Avant Manual. I can fit 4 adults, gear, 4WD for the winter, etc.
Toy #1: '69 Camaro SS 454, black with white racing stripes
Toy #2: 996 GT2 - If I'm getting a track toy, I'll get a track toy
Toy #3: Built Jeep. Not as specific in the dream, but something that'll take me off road and work for winter days when the Audi wants to stay home.

Lots of D talent. Lots of questions on offense. It'll be interesting to see how many games this team wins with the defense/run ball/don't make mistakes offense. They've got some talent, definitely some building blocks here for success this year and in the future.

Also, FYI there are TONS of 996 Turbos that are around $40k now... Someday maybe...
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Woodward Dream Cruise Sighting||
There's a black Porsche 550 Spyder that's been at the dream cruise the last few years. I'm sure the value is now into the 1/4 million range... I'd be a terrible (great?) owner because I'd just drive it everywhere.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||You're cheating||
My next question was "build your dream garage", with 4-5 cars. My daily driver is an RS4 Avant with a manual... i'll save the rest for next week.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Yep||
But I still use the term "BCS Bowl" to describe those prestige bowls... I think that's not uncommon
