"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

The dagger used in S1 in the attempted assassination of Bran was made of valyrian steel.

That's not true, MDs are highest followed by dentists. Lawyers and finance workers are pretty high up the list too.
No one knows the real reason. Probably all the hoops people have to jump through makes the professions self selecting for a certain type of personality.

The truth is... and this might be a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people... that we really can't compete with those programs anymore. At least not on a yearly basis. Hard to achieve recruiting parity when your home state has less than half the talent of Florida, Ohio, Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, ect. There's going to be years when things line up and we're able to be competitive vs those schools, but expecting to go .500 vs them (recruiting and on the field) is honestly unreasonable. :(

The only one that comes to mind is actually Lloyd Carr. Say what you will about him, but his players loved him, no doubt about that.

For being such a math-centric sport, I don't understand how MLB owners/managers prioritize their payroll. It seems like they always pay players based on what they've done instead of what they'll potentially do. Every time one of those huge contracts comes around, everyone knows the player's not worth it.... except for the GMs.

When they say "education" they don't mean university rankings in most cases. What they're talking about is academic support staff, graduation rates, ect.

|11 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, pick the one or two||
Yeah, pick the one or two sports that are not supported by universities and focus your argument on those exceptions. 80% of American medal winners in the London olympics were NCAA athletes. A big portion of the money that went into train those athletes came from the universities they attended. If you take that away the government isn't going to step in to fill the gap and a lot of those athletes won't be able to afford coaching+going to college+feeding themselves+tutoring because they won't have any scholarships or special concessions at school because of their status as student athletes.
I mean... if you don't care about USA's performance in the olympics that fine, it's a fair viewpoint to have; but to pretend that eliminating olympic sports from a lot of athletic departments won't heavily impact the athletes that will be left without a scholarship? Jeez...
BTW, I wouldn't brag about figure skating if I were you, that's not a sport USA dominates. The Russians are much better, both historically and currently. Maybe colleges not supporting it has something to do with it.

Well, it's fairly simple. Take away the millions that the universities invest in these athletes, don't replace it with anything, see how it goes. I mean... where do you expect that lost money to come from? Congress? You can't compare our model to China's or Russia's because they fund their athletes directly from a very early age. Here that will never happen.

Because it wouldn't be basketball and football that would get cut. The first sports to go would be the men's olympic sports because they don't bring in money, and then the women's olympic sports because if you don't have the men's teams then you don't need the women's teams to balance it out.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Academically, comparing||
Academically, comparing Rutgers and Maryland with Kansas and Mizzou is like comparing U of M with Western or State. They'd both be at the bottom of the conference with Nebraska by a comfortable margin.
Also, I'm pretty sure Maryland is closer to Michigan than Nebraska and Kansas, but don't quote me on that one.

If the universities start cutting sports, you can kiss being competitive at the Olympics goodbye.

I have shitty Nike shirts that have fallen apart on me too. That doesn't mean anything, it's all anecdotal evidence tainted by brand loyalty.

I bet most people clamoring for Nike wouldn't be able to tell an Adidas, Nike, and UA shirt apart if you removed the tags and logos.
All these shirts probably come from the same damn sweatshop using the same fabric. Just say you like Nike because it's prettier, that's a more credible argument.
