|1 week 3 days ago||Got free tickets to see BC @ USC two years ago||
I was shocked that a high profile program like USC played at a complete shithole. I'm sure the player and team facilities are nice but the fan experience is garbage and the stadium looks and feels like its a crumbling mess.
The campus was pretty nice, (with the exception of the surrounding area of the stadium which fels like Stabbsville) the coeds were spectacular but the stadium, woof.
|2 weeks 59 min ago||take away from Craig Ross blurb:||
RR was lambasted by pretty much everyone for trying to spread and shred from day 1 without any pieces (for any offense) and was said to have cost us games. However, by the end of year 2 and fully into year 3 we saw that offense start to show signs of life. He got the axe, Hoke came in and tried to slowly turn that platypus into a unicorn and other than year 1 (where he was blessed with Denard) the offense looked like it had no idea what it was trying to do.
Not that I worry about this with HARBAUGH but I think the lesson here is to have an identity and run as much of it as possible in year one, then make the transition as quickly as possible after that. People will argue "adjust the system to the players" and while I understand the calls for that I think knowing who you are and executing on that is the better play.
You may have more growing pains at the start of running what you know, but you have a higher ceiling and likely a shorter learning curve for all involved. If you're adjusting the system to the players you'll probably have an easier time at first, but your curve will be long and you're already at least calling into question the ceiling because you have no idea what the end result even looks like.

I didn't bring saad into the convo. Also not sure what you're getting at. ROR is worth 3m/y more because he's got 15lbs and an inch on Gus?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||he's priced about right.||
I know people see that as a lot...but in today's NHL...its just not.
Ryan O'Reilly has had almost identical PPG stats as Gus in Gus' two NHL years and he makes 7mm a year. TJ Oshie is another who's about the exact same player statswise and he makes right about what Gus is going to. This is a fair deal that will be a steal if Gus goes to the next level somewhere during the course of it.

take a look at the goalies with 300 wins (there's 31 of them. Now see how many have won 2 cups as a starter) (hint, there aren't many and they're all in the HHOF.

then we can work on Osgood's HOF campaign.

IIRC Filppula was wanting a 5+ MM deal, the Wings weren't paying that and weren't waiting, they signed Weiss for the deal on the table for Fil and moved on. Fil signed later for what he could have gotten to stay here. Was an error on his agents part. (same with Damien Brunner who wanted an absurd deal that the wings walked away from).
Franzen over Hossa looks bad now, but at the time Franzen looked every bit the player of Hossa and younger (plus a bit cheaper) I won't kill Holland for that.

Harry's razors harrys.com. Cheap, great blades, they last a long time, and I find they give me a better shave than gilette's stuff.

with customer service reps who care more about the gum on the bottom of their shoe than you,
and uverse is the shittier, cheaper, marginally (at best) better customer service expensive, evil, horrible company.
just like the cell phone industry. There's practically zero competition and the consumer suffers. I live in a city with its own cable system (which sucks, and is expensive.) My options are literally 1) crappy municipal cable and internet which are very expensive and not even close to speed/quality of comcast/uverse 2) uverse which has substandard equipment and speeds.
I agree with whoever said it upthread, we're the richest nation in the world and we have extremely middling home use technology and a high price tag. WTF, mate?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||lolno.||
they are not considering that.
If Dylan Larkin is a red wing at any point next year then the organization has drastically changed their philosophy on development
|6 weeks 6 days ago||this is interesting||
he talked before many times about how hard it is to recruit with their high academic and admissions standards now he's saying they don't have to meet those standards to get in?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I'm assuming he's pissed||
I'm assuming he's pissed because Holland can't sign top end talent despite the fact that he's offered equal or better contracts to every single player we've missed out on. Or maybe it's reloading this team to be elite in the cap era without having to deal Dats, Z or Kronner. No other franchise has the combination of continued success and level of prospects we have in the system. Ignore him he's another clueless 'hockey' fan who expects the same success after the adoption of the cap as we did when we could just outbid for every superstar out there. Almost every franchise who has had success is lacking for prospects; we have a stocked system that we're going to have to find places for. People in this town don't know shit about hockey and just love to bitch.

they were the grand rapids red wings for most of the year due to injury and still made the playoffs last year. took what looks like the best eastern conference team to the mat this year with 0 bonafide scorers. but yeah underachieving all the way. this spoiled fucking fanbase doesn't deserve babcock. spoiled entitled idiots.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||two:||
First one was a weekend tournament for our baseball team we had as many as six games in three days depending on if we won or lost. we didn't have enough pitchers with innings available going into the tourney. I finally convinced my coach to let me try (I wasn't a hard thrower so he didn't pay me any mind during the season) got the start in day two of the tourney and tossed 7 innings (max allowable for a weekend) of 3 hit 0 run ball.
A buddy of mine and I were the OLB for our 14 y.o. football team. we were playing a team with an option QB that was just killing us. We had no answer for his speed. Coach got frustrated and called a double OLB blitz on one of the last plays before the half. We took out our teams frustration by hitting that superstar option QB so hard simultaneously that he refused to reenter the game.

I don't hide/lie about where I went and I'm not ashamed of it.
I couldn't afford AA. simple as that. I needed a campus close to my job that I could easily commute to.

My degree says it was issued by the University of Michigan. Not the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I'm an alum. Did I have as whole of an experience as people who went to the big campus? No. But I'm still an alum.
