Agreed. While I agree most of what OP had to say, he took the average of RR against Hoke's best season. If you look at the direction that the wins each season was/is going RR was at least on the upswing and Hoke has been on the downswing. They both finished their third season with 7 wins. And it's not like Hoke magically built up the team in a single off season. I love Hoke, but that wording is completely disingenuous.

I would say that person knows a thing or two about physical therapy. Helping someone walk again have almost nothing to do with what we're talking about.

The loophole that Aereo found is based on the fact that the signal was being broadcast for free. ABC could have easily fixed this themselves by preventing the signal from being broadcast over the air, but then they'd lose out on advertising revenue. It was publicly stated that if the SCOTUS didn't rule in their favor that this was plan B. Now, they can have their cake and eat it too.
I wouldn't mind if this really was violating some kind of law or if the law was changed to ban this, but if you go through the steps, you can't find a legal issue with this. The reasoning behind the ruling boils down to the fact that it should be illegal (and I can agree with that), but the fact that it isn't illegal should mean that they have to rule in the favor of Aereo. I can legally buy an antenna and a DVR and host them at my house. I can legally rent an antenna and a DVR and host them at my house. Shouldn't I be legally allowed to rent an antenna and a DVR and have someone else host them for me? Their answer to this is no because they think that it looks like something else that is illegal.

I don't pay that close of attention to the NBA, but from what I've seen pass through this board, I've never seen him listed as a lottery pick. Everything that I've seen has had him in the 11-17 range.

I don't think MSU will go after him. When they were building the team, they might have, but they are now in a position that the risk on players like that is no longer worth the potential payoff.

"Jayru Campbell, the 17-year-old Cass Technical High School junior quarterback accepted a plea deal that will likely keep him out of jail and his criminal record clean, so long as he abides to the court requirements."
"...Jayru Campbell to serve 60 days jail Friday.
The sentence will begin July 28, after Campbell finishes summer school to make up time he missed because of the incident, with 3 days served."
They seem to be contradicting themselves a bit and it makes the terms of the plea deal unclear.

Some estimates come from cable companies. Others are calculated. For example, I saw an article a couple of years ago that stated ESPN receives $5 per cable subscription and only 25% of those subscribed actually watched the channel. So, in order ESPN to maintain their current revenue, they'd need to charge $20 and retain all of their viewers. That doesn't account for people who would only get it for the season either. It's tricky to calculate, but I'd imagine that ESPN would go to a more predictable model like PPV. In any event, I think the price of sports channels will go through the roof.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not sure where they get||
I'm not sure where they get the $37 from. MLB.tv costs $20/month. I've seen estimates that ESPN alone would need to charge $20/month minimum to break even in terms of revenue and that didn't take into account people dropping the channel after the season for their sport of choice is over.
Also, it's not just the $37 for sports. It's the $30 (rumors from a while back) for HBO and $10 each for FX, AMC, ABC, NBC, Fox, and CBS (or insert whichever channels your favorite TV shows are on) that all add up to $127 while cutting out those other channels that you don't watch. Maybe you don't watch any TV shows, but a majority of people do and they will have a hard time cutting out various stations due to their shows being on them.

I would say episode 4 was the low point of the season. From here on out, I think it's going to keep climbing on the "HOLY SHIT" scale.

First, all of the other characters are aging faster in the show. He needs to age at the same rate. I believe he was supposed to be 8 at the start of the show (6 in the books, but all kids got bumped up a year or two), so, assuming that the chronology of events is spaced out evenly with the seasons (based on the other kids aging at that rate), he should be around 12 this season.
Second, if you think the backlash after the rape scene was bad, wait until they hint at a 12-year-old, let alone an 8-year-old, getting married and potentially having sex with what basically amounts to an adult woman. I don't think that they are going to touch that one with a ten-foot pole.
Basically, I'm fine with how they are handling the child actors getting older. Unless they plan on changing out the actors every season to keep them young, there's not a whole lot that they can do.

First of all, never give anyone information if they call you. Call back with the number on the back of your card and then continue the conversation with them or another person.
Second, just curious, do you happen to know if the person was part of the Target breach? I'm wondering if this is the fallout from that. Target wouldn't have stored those CCV numbers, but they'd have almost everything else.

Considering the number of times that we've seen the 5 sit at the top of the arc completely unguarded, it will be nice to have a guy who can hit a 3 in those situations. It will force the defense to respect him and open up opportunities for others.

I know there are some Brand New fans on this board.
This thread reminded me to check Brand New's site for shows (even though it's almost impossible to get tickets even when you know they are going on sale ahead of time). They are playing several shows in the midwest in July with tickets still available on Ticketmaster.
I desperately want to go, but I can't justify spending the money this year, so I thought I'd pass along the info to others who might be interested.

I don't disagree that, in general, it is unfair to the kids. I think there are numerous reasons that a kid should be able to transfer schools without penalty. I just don't think that following a coach is one of them.
I think I'd just like to see some middle ground where there is an appeal process to allow kids who want to transfer for legitimate reasons (e.g. change of degree, home sickness, change of system with little to no chance of playing time, etc.) to do so without penalty.

This is the exact reason that the one-year rule is in place. Kids should not be following coaches from school to school.

I'm not claiming that. However, when you say that Rutgers has done something that we haven't done in 6 years, he's trying to make a direct comparison. However, the SEC team to which he is referring went 3-9 last year. Out of the three SEC teams that we've played in the given timeframe, none finished the season with fewer than 9 wins. I'm just pointing out that Rutgers beating a team that went 0-8 in the SEC says almost nothing about Rutgers just like Michigan beating Vanderbilt in 2006 said nothing about Michigan (it wasn't until we eviscerated ND in week 3 that we started getting attention).
