honestly i dont think snow tires make that much of a difference nowadays.. ever since they removed metal studs due to the road damage they caused there is no great avantage to snow tires.. in my opinion they arent worth buying over all-season tires.
i know very few people where i grew up in the snowbelt in ohio that still buy snow tires.
i am telling you, i watched it all go down IN PERSON, it was 75% the RWD. FWD cars were rarely stuck, and when they got stuck it was because people were going so slow in front of them that they had no momentum. People could not get up a single hill on the ice with the RWD, those with FWD (and nobody blocking them) had no issue.
BTW - i am not saying snow tires wouldnt have helped, because obviously they would still help, but i just feel that snow tires are not as common in the north as they used to be, and northern states do not have this problem.

i live in atlanta but grew up in the midwest - even if you are from the north you would have still had issues - no matter how good of a snow driver you are. from what i saw - the biggest issues were:
1) No Salt or plows
2) Rear wheel drive cars galore (everyone who got stuck had rwd - and would basically be immobile in the middle of busy streets and peolpe would try to go around them, and then also get stuck which led to complete blockage)
3) People were overly cautious to start the day, and went soo slow, that they would get stuck because they had no momentum. Then once those people blocked the road, everyone else lost momentum and would get stuck. Any road with a hill was a disaster since nobody could get up it.
I got through in decent time because i had fwd and a short ride but it was truly a disaster

looks like they are adding a student center and classrooms as well - among other things, so that could explain the extra expenses

notre dame recruits TE very well, every time a TE graduates a new TE steps up
First there was zach rudolph, then tyler eifert, then niklas, and now koyak
I dont remember how many years that has been now, but before that there was john carlson, then will yeatman (who was looking to be great for ND before getting kicked off the team), and anthony fasano was before john carlson. I dont remember how far this goes back, but regardless, they have been utilizing their TEs well and getting the good recruits because of it.

notre dame is pretty low on the embarrassing scale.. im unsure if the manti teo incident outweighs their APR that much that they would be almost dead last
even if they did a 0-100 scale.. they could get a 0 for manti and a 99 for APR.. it would still average out to 50%

i dont really agree with this. with the stupid upvoting/downvoting obsession on this board, i feel that people with other opinions are cast to a corner.
with the upvoting/downvoting gone, it has improved

i agree, but would like to note that it is a lot less common for a freshman OL to start than a skill player

they will be making a ton of money from U of M. I lived on East Jefferson (graduated 2012), and they were buying up the houses on south division. The house my friends lived in was bought for 950k

in my mind if you sign a contract that is not mandatory, then you should be bound to the contract even more than if it was mandatory. he CHOSE to sign a paper saying that he is going to notre dame.
whats the point of the LOI if people can still back out without punishment? he should have to sit out a year.
wait until this happens to us, and then we will see what tunes you all are singing

loi is a contract, you should not be able to break the contract without repercussions, otherwise, what is the point of the contract... all i am saying that this may just be the start of february 1 not being the day where we all become comfortable with the incoming class, as they could still leave without facing any punishment (aka having to sit a year)
also, the senior year comment was an exaggeration

|1 year 22 weeks ago||MUSTACHE||
By using McGuffie in the slot, the Owls are counting on his speed - he's arguably the fastest player on the team - to create mismatches. The move also will allow the Owls to get some of their other playmakers on the field at the same time.
Definitely thought mismatches was mustaches after looking at the picture and then reading quickly..

|1 year 28 weeks ago||no, it means that when||
no, it means that when someone commits a crime a week before the season begins, or while the season is occuring, the obvious punishment is to have them sit out of games
when someone commits a crime 5 months before the season starts there are a lot of ways to be punished - im not saying floyd shouldnt have been punished, but its obvious that cierre would miss games in this case [i said cierre instead of wood because it would have been wood would lol]
you guys do realize that toussaint may not even sit out a game right? get off your high horse already because this happens at every school
|1 year 28 weeks ago||there is a huge difference..||
there is a huge difference.. floyd got a DUI in the spring term.
wood failed a drug test a few weeks before the season opener.

i no longer live in ashtabula, so i wasnt at the game.. ill ask my dad, he went to the game to watch smith. i doubt he knows though

I am from the Ashtabula Ohio where Lakeside is, and they are bad.. real bad. On a high note, it is the high school that Urban Meyer would probably go to if he was living in Ashtabula in the modern day.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I am not saying that floyd||
I am not saying that floyd should not have been suspended, but it really was a different situation as phork mentioned. Toussaints was way closer to the season than Floyds. Floyd had a whole semester of punishment in the spring.
