Why is Oregon so "embarrassing"?

I know I'm splitting hair here, but:
Unless you go to school 12 months out of the year (most go for 9 months not including summer school), you will still have 18 months (or two years) left after finishing your undergraduate as a transfer student.
Also, you have 15 years to use your Post 9/11 GI Bill after you seperate.

If ESPN reports it, it must be true...

I believe the kicker was for the Montgomery GI Bill, I don't believe the Post 9/11 GI bill has it. Unless it is part of a Navy specific program.

"You literally have to be in the 99.9th percentile in coaching to reach those heights."
So NFL and BCS level refs, water boys, cheer leaders, grounds crew... are all savants as well?

I think they look cool too, but only because I hate ND.

Tha is true, so what is your point? Are you claiming Tebow is better than Roethlisberger? Or are you just saying?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Fair enough, and after||
Fair enough, and after rereading your post, I think I was keying on the "I like this trend". I should have given you the benefit of the doubt that you were referring to UM's positives rather than ND's negatives.
edit: after rereading my post, that sounded smug, no smug was intended.

I know you didn't exactly say this, but "rooting" for student/athletes of a rival to fail in the classroom is very disappointing to hear.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I was just having this||
I was just having this conversation yesterday (I work in "beautiful" Santa Ana). There are a lot of negatives for California (taxes, traffic, state budget mismanagement, house prices), but yet it doesn't seem like there is a net loss in population. I've lived all over the US, and Socal is by far the best location.

Did you "reply" to the wrong post? Because I didn't get the creepy vibe at all. BTW, I didn't neg you.

That is absurd, one bag of cocaine is more than enough...

"But he didn't"
But he didn't what? Are you referring to Jones not handling the situation himself? Ok... No argument there...
"absolutely no justification whatsoever for York to have punched him"
From video evidence alone, you are correct.
"it was a set up with Jones distracting the guy so York could get the sucker punch in."
If that is the case, then Jones is a bigger coward than York, I for one don't have enough evidence to admit that.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||"Jones clearly stepped back||
"Jones clearly stepped back for York to punch him indicating it was premeditated by both"
I really don't understand this. I just don't believe that Jones would have asked York to beat someone up for him. I'm pretty sure Jones could have handled that guy on his own.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||If you knew he was going to||
If you knew he was going to punch him, then why didn't you stop him? Oh, that's right, you weren't there. Also, Jones did not have your vantage point. I think that might make a difference...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||My guess is that Jones was||
My guess is that Jones was getting ready to engage in fist a cuffs and was moving to an area with more room.
The reason I doubt it is because I am pretty sure Jones could handle himself against that guy, so I don't believe Jones was expecting anyone to "help" him.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe I missed it, but I||
Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see anyone say the victim had it coming.
Let me put it this way, if my son was the victim in this case, yes I would be enraged at York, but I would also be pissed off at my son for putting himself in that position. So no, not everything has to be so black and white.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||How so?||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So to be clear, you are||
So to be clear, you are saying Jones knew York was going to sucker punch the guy and he helped set it up? Sure it is possible, but I doubt it.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||"Jones set that kid up for||
"Jones set that kid up for the sucker punch too, and there's no doubt about it."
I have very strong doubts about that.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Sure, there is that line of||
Sure, there is that line of thinking. There is also the viewpoint that keeping him on the team does not punish this behavior. This could be a valuable life lesson, like the lesson Chris Carter learned when he was cut from the Eagles. It could also lead to other players thinking that they can get away with crime since someone else got away with crime.
I don't like that it has come to this, but him getting kicked out is the best thing for everyone involved.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Why would you send him/her my||
Why would you send him/her my picture? You said you wanted to get sucker punched since you are so tough. Are you drunk?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Ok, well I'll play the other||
Ok, well I'll play the other extreme. You sound like a guy/gal that talks sh*t to whoever and then plays the victim when things go down.
Do I know if the victim said anything to provoke the fight? No, but neither do you.
Am I saying York was justified in what he did? No, but if the victim just kept walking, would anything have happened.
York should get kicked out of UM, but don't act like the victim was just someone minding their own business. He got what he wanted, trouble (well probably since I don't know what was said).
|2 weeks 4 days ago||So any reaction that isn't||
So any reaction that isn't 100% against York is 100% for defending him?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think you understand.||
I don't think you understand. He is saying if you don't want trouble, don't start trouble.

You'll need to provide a picture so he/she will know who to look for.

I agree with WolvinLA2, people who sucker punch are dangerous. You might be able to get them to back down, but you're going to have to turn around sooner or later...

Before the video came out? Based on what?
