I'm here for the posbang.

Wouldn't it send a stronger message to go and take a big "Fire so-and-so" sign with you?

What handle were you using when you posted it? I still haven't seen it.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Don't forget that time||
Don't forget that time Special K played music over the starting lineup player intros, or that time whoever was talking had to talk over some stupid HAIL ad. It was a clown show.

Welcome back, Section 1.

I didn't notice this while I was at the stadium, and don't have access to ESPN3 for the post-delay bit.

But my dad, who was at both games, thought there were more people there last week.

Title IX obligations to create safe learning environments on campus are being actively enforced by the feds right now. Flouting those obligations results in students' losing the ability to receive federal grants to attend the school. There is a lot more money at stake here than what the football program brings in.
See, e.g., http://hr.fsu.edu/PDF/Forms/TitleIXStatement.pdf --at my current institution, faculty are required by law to report any information about any incident of harassment or assault to a Title IX coordinator. Likewise, any faculty member at FSU who hears about the Winston incident is required by law to report it, and FSU is obligated to investigate and act on reports. This is about a lot more than public pressure.

They're already under federal investigation over this kid. They cannot ignore any threatening behavior directed towards students coming from this guy.
|3 days 2 hours ago||another example||
The University of Illinois is currently subject to a boycott by thousands of professors, and about to be on the losing end of a lawsuit for firing an incoming professor over political speech on Twitter following pressure from off campus political activists.
On a more directly relevant note, I don't think anybody to this point on the thread, as far down as I've read, has understood the real issue. Accused rapist Jameis Winston shouting what he shouted in University buildings is liable to create a seriously hostile environment for female students. I'd assume the decision to extend the suspension came down from FSU's legal team. Depending on where the existing investigation into the rape allegations stands, JW may now be on a somewhat faster track to expulsion.

So what kind of peppers are you asking for? I'm thinking I'll have him paint brussels sprouts on the stalk, just because they're really weird. But I'm open to better suggestions now that the clear choice is gone.

I'd guess you can switch to that option, although you might have to increase your pledge to do so.

You say that like university rankings are based on teaching skills...
There is a world where academic prestige is related to teaching. This is not that world.

The owner is letting them use the old Le Dog space to fundraise. There's sometimes somebody there to sell t-shirts but I never happened to be walking by when she was actually there. Hopefully it'll be a little more organized at some point.

|6 days 19 hours ago||I'm pretty sure the test||
I'm pretty sure the test scores of entering students is not a very good measure of the quality of a university. I'd be surprised if there were a single professor at GVSU that wouldn't jump at an equivalent job at MSU.

USN&WR sucks. QS sucks worse.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Held in higher regard by whom?||
Nobody respects QS rankings. (I have no idea about London Times rankings.)
|6 days 23 hours ago||woohoo and all||
But these rankings are bullshit. Their methodology is bullshit. They are not more respected than USNWR, low though that bar may be.

That was a useless answer to a silly MGoQuestion. I wish the MGoQuestions would focus on technical stuff to ensure the accuracy of Brian's UFRs instead of focusing on sideshow stuff. But if you're going to ask about the sideshow stuff, why let him off the hook immediately with an evasive non-answer?

How does anybody in a casino not realize there are cameras everywhere? Unbelievable.

This seemed like nothing but ax grinding to me. He has one quote from an unnamed Duke alum and gives three examples of players who committed to Duke. But most of it reads like extremely uncharitable cynicism to me.

He had one big run where I thought he'd made a great cut to get outside to daylight, but during the replay I realized he'd run away from a giant hole, forcing himself to dodge a guy to get outside in the first place. Miami (NTM) might just be so bad that his vision was irrelevant.
