Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes

We should absolutely be incorporating golf carts into our passing scheme. It's innovative. It pushes the envelope. And show me where in the rulebook it specifically prohibits the use of receivers in golf carts.

I only knew who Cooper was because of an old SI article I remember reading about the "Other" Manning brother.

O'Korn won the QB Skills Challenge at the Manning camp wearing his other favorite color, camouflage, on his... um, leggings, I think?

What do you expect from Adidas? All they do all day is dream about sex, or so I was told by a reputable source in third grade.

Executive summary for people who went tl;dr on it:
|1 day 7 min ago||And that's why I'll never hold it against Kalis||
or any of the highly-rated guys that played under the last regime and didn't live up to their recruiting hype (yet). It only makes me sincerely wish for their sakes that they could have had the current coaching from day one. Gardner, especially. I'll go to my grave believing that kid was destined to be an All-American QB and a high NFL pick.
|1 day 22 min ago||And that's what I think the competition comes down to.||
If O'Korn learns to stick with things long enough for Harbaugh's liking, he's probably gold. If he's repeatedly getting happy feet or taking off after his primary read isn't there, hello Wilton.
I have to say, though, that just as a fan, having a guy with even a little running ability makes me feel so much better. This is mostly because of the trauma caused by other teams' mobile QBs over the years, but also because honestly the OL's pass blocking in the spring game was <tug collar>.
|1 day 27 min ago||It's not window dressing.||
EC drafts proposed legislation and it both parliament and the EC vote on it in at least an advisory capacity depending on which legislative procedure is used, which in turn depends on subject matter. The EP has become more influential than it was at the beginning due to a series of reforms along the way.
I get the criticism and share in large part, but I also understand the need to have strong executive side to deal with the common market issues so you don't have a situation like in the U.S. where a single senator can put a hold on a nominee or hold up important legislation with a filibuster forever if he/she chooses. But to say it's totally unelected just isn't accurate.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Excellent. Probably could move inside as needed.||
Looks like he's got a ways to go vis-a-vis pass block technique but hell, (1) he's in h.s., and (2) he's in h.s. in Connecticut, so a few years of Drevno will shine him right up. The fact the coaches are standing there at camp watching the kid before offering is all I need to know.
All that being said, I trust the phrase "college ready" exactly not at all ever since we were told by every scout ever that Kyle Kalis was the most college-ready* lineman in his class, some of them saying the most college-ready OL they'd seen in years. But with Harvard and Yale offers on the table, hopefully the mental part will come easier for Stueber than for most.
Seems like a great fit.
*I realize that in the above post, Brian was really just talking about the kid's size, not overall readiness to jump in and play.

or "MEPs" (not to be confused with Moops) are elected by their home countries according to election rules set by those countries. European Commission and EU Council are appointed. All EU laws have to be ratified by the MEPs, so it's not "unelected and completely unaccountable."
|1 day 13 hours ago||It looks like it's focused on migration within the states||
CA lost 5 million during 2004-2013 to other states and gained 3.9 million.
Michigan sent 87k to CA during that period, and CA sent MI 67k, making MI one of the few states that had a net positive emigration to CA (interestingly they're virtually all Great Lakes region). Some nearby states like WI and MN were virtually dead even.
Here's one source but there are many studies on this.
|1 day 22 hours ago||You basically just summed up||
why we're having trouble hiring people from out of state. It's unsustainable. California overall has net negative migration as ordinary folks are being driven out by housing costs and it's causing all kinds of social tumult up here. It's not Venezuela, but still, it's a serious situation for tech and non-tech alike.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Let me put it this way.||
If I were an engineer, I wouldn't have been unqualified. My background is all biomedical and legal. Instead I spent the first couple of years reading things like "EE for Dummies." I was as comfortable with Ohm's Law as Brady Hoke was with spread punting.
|1 day 23 hours ago||honestly so do I||
about once a week, I go to Redfin and check in on my dream house/farm on Liberty and daydream a little of horses, dogs, kids that don't turn into smartass teenagers, and football Saturdays in Ann Arbor with the fall colors as a backdrop. https://www.redfin.com/MI/Ann-Arbor/6830-W-Liberty-Rd-48103/home/99329300
|1 day 23 hours ago||They have greeting cards for this now||
In this time when so many are struggling to make ends meet, so sorry to hear about your promotion, raise, and relocation to a beautiful area of the country. Thoughts and prayers. Also, go fuck yourself.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Weird that biggest worry now||
is being promoted. The bump in pay wouldn't remotely compensate for a gigantic leap in annoying bullshit I'd have to deal with and I'd probably lose my usually work-free weekends. Yes, I know, #firstworldproblems. I could still get canned at any moment, who knows.
It took me a while to learn that quality of life matters so much more than squeezing out every last dime in income, but having learned it, I'm all about it. The problem is, I love the company so much, I'd do whatever they asked to help. Like everyone else in my group, I just keep my fingers crossed that the guy running the whole show stays healthy and stays put, because none of us wants his job.
Such is life in the straight-up gangsta hood called Sunnyvale, yo.
|2 days 2 min ago||I am keenly interested in the answer to this question||
because I was in said situation, accepted the job, and want to be fully self-aware.
I didn't even consider saying no even though it required a coast-to-coast move and giving up a great many things. It was (is) a company I'd loved since I was in 3rd grade, was a dream job in almost every way, and I was not grossly but still moderately unqualified (in my opinion, thankfully the hiring manager thought otherwise).
That said, the first year was total panic as I was in over my head and waiting to be exposed as a fraud. I didn't even unpack fully because I was expecting I'd get canned any day and have to move back anyway. Then that first annual performance review came out, and holy shit, it was glowing. It was like, I don't know, pulling a Sugar Bowl win out of your ass?
The career parallels of Hoke and myself diverged markedly at that point. Thankfully for me, not thankfully for the team I love.

most dealing with every Michigan defensive change from 2008-10.
Defensive scheme changes for OSU 2015 might also fall into this category. Why, Durkin. Why.

The living envy the dead. As far as Brexit, no one's saying the industrialized world is going to regress to feudalism, just that a huge free trading/free movement zone may begin to unwind over the next several years with negative consequences for global economic growth and peaceful coexistence on the assumption that economic and social ties make war between neighbors less likely.
So we're not talking zombie apocalypse, but if that did happen, I've been preparing for it by watching "Preppers." Don't forget the manual can openers, people, I just can't stress that enough.

instead favoring a republic for many of those reasons. I mean, John Adams said "Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself."
Hamilton was equally stark:
A republic, if you can keep it, man.
In Cameron's defense, maybe deep down he thought the guy's wife was a bitch.

"Getting close to no politics"? I'd say that train left the station a few hundred posts ago. I figured this was just a 12 hour MGBlog Purge session where all threads are legal. I'm about to start a thread called "Which religion, if any, is true?" Or possibly "Rich Rod: Discuss."

They've been doing it for years now. The US is actually a great country to hide and launder money in-- our favorable corporate structures favor secrecy more than European banking systems, including the Swiss, which had to reform post FATCA.

That's probably where this lands. That said, with 2 years to negotiate the terms of the exit, it's not inconceivable that once the terms are settled, they might bow to pressure to send this right back out for a second referendum asking "OK, now that we have the details, are you SURE?" The second vote will come to be known as "Brexit fo realz."
