The spread only matters when it comes to my sanity (are we winning the game comfortably enough that I don't have to be stressed out). Beyond that, the thing that matters is winning.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Colorado also probably isn't||
Colorado also probably isn't int he B1G unless I missed that announcement, and should MSU now be on here?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||In theory, that sounds good,||
In theory, that sounds good, but then you're talking 30-40 roster spots taken up by the o-line and a lot less spots available for other positions.

This was not a waste of your time. Or, thank you for wasting your time.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||If you hit the 'play' button||
If you hit the 'play' button you would have had the answer in less than one second.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Virtually everyone in the||
Virtually everyone in the field of Urology disagrees with the USPSTF. The AUA also has a position paper on why they disagree with it.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||All the more reason to make||
All the more reason to make sure the OP gets their question answered. I definitely wouldn't want to end up next to this guy.
|11 weeks 3 hours ago||Prostate cancer is generally||
Prostate cancer is generally slow growing, except when it isn't. The USPSTF recommendations take a population approach to the problem - but that means some people are sacrificed for the greater benefit of everyone else. In the ideal world, people are still screened regularly, but they're also comfortable in not being treated if a slow-growing cancer is found. In the real world, both doctors and patients are nervous about not treating a slow-growing cancer even though many men can either avoid treatment altogether or delay treatment (and its side effects) for a long period of time.

While a noble goal, I hope for you that something comes along that's more important than attending a single football game.

I think it was actually 2009 (there was still a lot of excitement heading into 2008), but your point still holds. There is definitely a significant influence of team performance on whether or not people purchase tickets. In 2007 and 2008 it still cost thousands of dollars to get off the wait list, but in 2009 the minimum donation ($50, I think) was enough to be offered season tickets.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I'd presume cost plays a||
I'd presume cost plays a major role in this. Up until a few years ago, the AD charged way under market value for the tickets so it was a no-brainer to buy season tickets as you could always sell them and at least break even and probably make a lot of money. Now, with PSDs in place, you're going to lose money more often than not on tickets you don't use, so it's no longer a no-brainer. For me personally, I have to travel when going to Michigan games and even prior to having kids would only make a few games a year. In the old days, it still made sense to have season tickets. Now? I've dropped them and just buy tickets for games I'll actually attend.

No, I was actually playing off of it. But now you made me explain that and made it all crap.

Why would a computer nerd be good at copying pasta? That's probably your problem.

You need to click harder.

Both. You're right, but you still missed something.
edit: hint, he didn't say that Peppers was the redshirt Junior.

I thought his point was that the "latter three" are UCLA, Texas and Oklahoma.
(yeah, what the guy above me said!)
|21 weeks 22 hours ago||If people are going to||
If people are going to complain about 3-stars, at least wait until final rankings rather than early ones. We know recruiting rankings are useful predictors of future success (though not perfect), but often forgotten is that the analyses showing their predictive value that get posted are all final rankings.

If the ligament is outside of your foot, then my medical opinion is that surgery is probably required to put it back in.

There's a growing body of evidence that repeated impact to the head, can lead to changes in the brain -- even in the absence of any concussions.

|40 weeks 3 days ago||When people talk about long||
When people talk about long arms on linemen, they don't just mean proportionately long because they're tall; they mean disproportionately long arms. Which is most definitely a disadvantage in the bench press.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Paragraphs don't really solve||
Paragraphs don't really solve the "TL;DR", unfortunately.
|42 weeks 18 hours ago||I can attest to the strong||
I can attest to the strong undercurrents of "if we let you come here, keep us in mind for when you go pro in whatever" from having attended Michigan, too. And that's despite paying my own way rather than giving me a scholarship.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||If they don't want Michigan||
If they don't want Michigan visiting Florida during the Spring (or Winter, as the writer points out), surely the SEC would enthusiastically support shifting many of the Bowl games up north, right?

down vote for topic that has already been beaten to death.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||I don't see how this is||
I don't see how this is anything remotely close to a "pretty fine line". Is it an endorsement if Rivals interviews the recruit and publishes information about them, with the goal of making money for Rivals? Here, an insurance company is publishing stories about athletes 'chasing their dreams' with the goal of attracting customers.

I'm wondering what makes that a bullshit offering?

Though, in fairness, I was reading an article on the subject of grad transfers that mentioned the vast majority of grad transfers only enroll for one semester as their new school (i.e., the one that overlaps with football season) and then drop out. Not saying that's the case here, but the fact that very few students are following through on a degree is why the NCAA wants to close the 'loophole.'

Sorry, was assuming there was just one year of eligibility remaining. In that case, SOMEONE IS PAYING THE FULL BILL!
