I just did. I have so many questions. Was this written down in his speech? I assume that he explained "OSKEE" to his coaches/staff... did no one say anything? That it's not actually an acronym? Do you think players heard this and thought "YES!" as opposed to "did our coach really come up with something and this was it?"
|1 day 10 hours ago||Personally...||
I'd go GTI/Golf over Mazda 3 and CX5 over Tiguan (wife has one, loves it, but it's small for the segment and expensive. However she wanted a Golf, but we got a much better deal on a Tiguan, so that's what she's in).
A Golf S could probably be had for dirt cheap (may need to order it?) and be a perfect first car for the kids. http://www.vw.com/models/golf/trims/2016/s-2-door-trim/edit/tab/summary/exterior-color/z2z2/
|1 day 12 hours ago||NOoooo!||
You're giving up the GTI?
The answer is either the GTI or the Mazda 3. They're both amazing (as is the base Golf).
Pick whichever you'd rather have.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Yeah...||
But 95% of people don't "Need 4WD". You'd be better off buying snow tires instead on FWD minivans.

Tesla shouldn't squish the baby?
|1 day 16 hours ago||How about this statement||
Assuming no suppliers have falsified their records and installed bombs in dashboards - any brand new car is going to be "very safe". Unless there's a glaring flaw (like Takata bags, or F150 overlap crashes, etc), all cars clear a certain safety bar, so focus on other aspects of the shopping list.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Meh||
This was true 20 years ago. Now all cars are safe. I'd be hard pressed to call certain brands safer than others.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Real advice?||
Buy a minivan instead of a 3 row SUV.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Seconded||
Totally agree. Things that piss me off about cars I rent most people would never notice.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Good points||
I think we'll miss Houma/Kerridge as well and will probably see more 1-back, 2TE sets (Butt/Bunting and/or Wheatley).
Harbaugh doesn't put square pegs into round holes, he makes the holes square.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Yup||
My 98 leaked power steering fluid also, but from the pump. Something about 11.5" wide tires when the factories were 235s...
The Dodge Ram PS Pump from the same years was a bolt in replacement and a lot beefier. Had I kept the Jeep I would have made that swap.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Replace it with the RS4 Chain||
Or... just shop for an RS4 :-)
|1 day 17 hours ago||Good question||
I can give a good answer with some more info from you. What size are you thinking? What's priorty #1? (Size, sportyness, cargo room, # of passengers, etc.)
In terms of what you've listed, there are TONS of cars that will fit what you're looking for, but we'd need more info. For $30K you could get a Subaru BRZ or a Dodge Caravan. Or many other things in the middle.
Safety - All new cars are going to be MUCH safer than your Ion. I'd argue that you want to do a few "extra" things on the test drive to make sure that the car is safe enough. For example - lots of headlights suck! (The new Cherokee's are awful). Take a test drive in the dark.
Cost - You can get a lot of car for under $30K. What features are important? At this point I think NAV is a waste of money assuming you have a smart phone, but something like Bluetooth is a must. Typically the "sweet spot" for new cars is a mid-level model. Not fully loaded, but not the base.
Fuel Economy - what kind of driving do you do most? Some cars will be better in the city, others better on the highway. The Mileage Sticker is mostly crap, but it does provide an A-to-B comparison between models. YMMV.
I've mentioned on here before that I like car and driver's buyers guide. check over there for some advice as well.

Here's something so you can logo yourself
|6 days 12 hours ago||Winning is good||
The NFL draft will be just as important. The fact that Harbaugh took a cast-off QB from Iowa and got him drafted (in the 6th, but still) is huge. It was hyperbole, but when Calipari said that all 5 of his starters getting drafted was the best night for UK Hoops ever he was close. The NFL factory will get recruits coming as much as a Natty will.

This is going to be this OL's first time that they have the same OC two years in a row (!!!!!!!!)
|1 week 2 days ago||Yay UFR||
Oh, OSU UFR.
If anything I'm encouraged. If we can gameplan around that DL with our OL, we can do it again. Better this year than last year, etc. etc. All Hail Harbaugh.
|1 week 2 days ago||Nah||
Onwenu played both in high school, there's debate among where he's best suited for his future, he may have "bad weight" to lose - extra reps won't hurt, often linemen do both - even as specialists (Some DL are on the FG team for example), Harbaugh loves playing guys both ways, He's not expected to need to see the field in either capacity this year so it's not like his development will be stunted, and probably about 35 other good reasons too

You're not sold on the senior who put up great sack and tfl numbers last year, but you want to start the 18year old??

2.7 my first semester. Calc 3, Physics 2, and Eng 100. Two sophomore classes and intro engineering - where they explained that curves are dumb!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yup||
True for me (which means you're 100% right - I have anecdotal evidence!). I entered college with lots of credits and got my ass kicked in a couple of sophomore classes as a freshman. GPA went up from there as I figured college out.
