I also enjoy coffee in the am. we get this stuff we had in Costa Rica while on vacation. I don't think it's all that exotic, but we like it and found it on Amazon. grind it fresh (1/2 decaf, 1/2 regular) and make it strong. I like mine with some candy-ass milk. I also enjoy it before the rest of my people get up. Quiet house, sun coming up...me, my 3 dogs and the first cup of coffee- probably my favorite time of day.

...and Boise said "off ya go"! And so went this guy...no help for whatever his issues were, and now a girl in another state got raped. Somebody will have a life long scar and another young person will go to jail for a long time, where there were signals. But no--as you state, Boise did nothing (legally) wrong. all ok, becuase he isn't their problem any longer, and it wasn't their daughter, wife or sister.
Baylor absolutely should have done more--Briles is a joke...but that doesn't excuse Boise State and their staff. I don't know if he was accused of sexual assult, but there were at the very least signals of trouble. So, these guys generate money and wins, and the culture of looking the other way does not do any favors to the kid, or the community in which they contribute as an athlete.
And to your point that Boise did what they were supposed to..they did the bare bones minimum. They don't deserve a prize for that. A kid/man with problems was sent elsewhere to be someone elses problem. It's like a child molester living in someone elses neighborhood--so let it be the other people's problem. If the coaches wanted to, they could have dug a bit more (or exposed what they already knew--since they knew something to have kicked him out) and actually looked for a solution to get him help and provide some insight to Baylor. AND...clearly Baylor wasn't interested, or concerned with any insight becuase look at how they've handled it---Briles, sheesh.

put words in my mouth. they'd not close to what I said.
by the way...
|1 week 6 days ago||Yep.||
if there was a sexual assult, then yes, that is minimal. I know we don't have all facts, but if it is an offense similar to the charges at Baylor, that is beyond "doing something wrong".
If I am the parent of the girl at Baylor, I would be digging into what happened at Boise for sure. Now that's not for you or me to be judge and jury, but if my kid is raped by a guy with a past, and it could have been avoided through better accountability, I think there is some moral responsibility at the very least. When a guy has a history, and nobody steps up, those who were aware have to look themselves in the mirror.
In this case, neither you or I have all the facts, so I can't say that Boise absolutely did the wrong thing. Similarly, you can't know that they absolutely did the right thing.

until the woman who can emotionally handle pressing charges is the victim. maybe it's nobody's job to police these alleged behaviors, but turning the other cheek or doing the bare minimum is cowardly.
|1 week 6 days ago||that||
was seriously disturbing.
It will be interesting to see how Baylor responds now that these allegations are out there. Also, having daughters who are entering teen years and just exploring college, Jane Doe's description made me want to vomit. So messed up, and I give her credit for going through the difficulty of pressing charges.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||I subscribe to Scout||
because of Sam Webb. But the others Brian mentioned are pretty solid too.
I saw that Tom Beaver meltdown, and didn't get it, but figured there was some sort of history that I didn't understand. But didn't know there was a thing between different posters (Sqd, et al) and him. So, that's interesting. I honestly don't care..I just fall into the category of being a junkie for info. But Sam is so solid and balanced, that's what I like. I loved TVH but when thngs changed at ESPN, I switched over to Scout, and I personally like it much better. If I had to give up that or MGoBlog, I'd keep MGoBlog though--for the information, and entertainment value.
Also, I advocate for throwing a donation at MGoBlog occassionally if you can. Its free, but the best site for what I like.

Mora Jr.? I really like him, but admittedly I've always been a UCLA fan and can't stand SC.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||UCLA||
I also enjoy the USC vs. ND rivalry, except in that case I hate both teams, so I'm continually conflicted.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Right.||
I shook my own head at myself for responding
