- Silva needs to go down in weight or retire. He's older and they test for PEDS now so he's not as dominant as he once was. Plus, the sport is changing. Everyone can fight against someone with his skillset now if they are in the UFC
- Lesnar is grossly unprepared to fight at this level but the heavyweight division is so thin that he can compete. Lay on the guy and hammerfist works in the lower level circuits (I watch them on AXS) but it's boring and won't bring in PPV sales.
- Valazquez again looks like the real deal and it's a shame he was on undercard.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Formula One races were done||
Formula One races were done this way for years. I suspect they still are as well. The announcers used to sound like they were in a small closet watching the race on tv.
Production has gotten much better and they do a better job of splicing in crowd noise.

There are some very good Division 2 schools in PA. To me they look like an elite D2 football school or an average FCS school, not a Big10 school.
I'd like to see them play Slippery Rock on a neutral field.

I am proud that in my formative years I had friends in every clique and could seamlessly pass from group to group. I am still very close friends with some of those people and love many of them like family even though we are on completely different sides of many issues.
The only people who I do not care to associate with any longer are the angry people. They have been excised from my world as I have no time for angry people. It's sad to see someone get so wrapped up in their ideology (right or left) that any viewpoints they dont agree with are attacked.
I would not want to go through life angry or fearful of starting conflict.

He's open about being from Chicago area and having a ND lovefest. He's always spoken highly of "Khaki Pants" and is probably the only Big Ten guy on the network.
The other 2 are SEC homers although I will give them credit for toning it down. Last season the were unlistenable at times with the Big Ten bashing.

4*/5* 6'2" safety coming out of HS. LB/DB hybrid seems to be a better position under a competent DC.

None of my Kodi streams are working.
I love McGregor and root for him since it's where my family comes from. But, I think you could hit Diaz with a baseball bat and he won't go down. McGregor is the better fighter but I think Diaz wins by letting McGregor get tired by punching him in the face.

I get the feeling I'm going 205 to 260 if I don't do something soon. I was really skinny at one time but the 5lb gained every winter is harder and harder to get off since passing 40.
Bad knees and all I consider running my best option of maintaining control.

The guy talked about worms having machine guns. Don't try to understand what he says in a literal sense. Just roll with it and all will be revealed in due time.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Crossing a line and touching||
Crossing a line and touching a base are two different things. It doesn't matter when your nose or whatever crosses the plane of the base but when you touch it. In sprinting your nose breaking the plane counts as finishing.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||529 and state school||
My deal with my (step)son and his father was that I would take care of tuition but they would have to pay the fees. His worthless father stiffed him and he paid all of the fees himself which wasn't necessarily a bad thing.
He's just transferred to another school where he gets a free ride because his stepmom works there. The school is crap but they have transfer agreements where he could transfer to another school and also get a free ride after he attends for a year. Richmond and TCU are on his list. Baylor was until things came to light.
The remainder of his 529 will go to my daughter when she gets to college if he doesn't use it. I think she won't be paying for school though.

ALS took my grandfather that raised me way too soon. I would not wish that on my worst enemy.
i do hope that his doctors have run all the tests to confirm it. A coworker's brother was diagnosed with ALS only to find out months later it was advanced Lyme Disease which is still horrible but treatable.

This year I started raising bees as a compliment to my orchard and garden. There were no wild ones left in my area. I find it very relaxing after working with technology all day to spend some time in the ultimate low-tech hobby of gardening. Bees force you to slow down and be deliberate to keep them calm much like Tai chi.
My hope is to retire early and use the produce as a supplement to my income. Every year I scale up a bit more and donate our excess to the food pantry. I am giving thought to renting some extra farm space next year.
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||Power Consumption?||
Are you offgrid? For some reason I am thinking you are offgrid so power consumption should be very important. If not I have nothing to offer this discussion.
I like my Panny Plasma but it's getting long in the tooth and my next TV most likely won't be plasma now that the black is true black instead of grey on LED TV.
|5 weeks 14 hours ago||He's caught in a lie (again)||
He flat out told the Reading Eagle it was Dantonio and Urban. The guy who asked the question at BTN media days is personal friends with the Reading Eagle reporter who originally ran a column about the negative recruiting. When the reporter who asked the question was confronted by the PSU SID denying it he immediately called over the Readin Eagle reporter who said, "No, that's exactly what he said. I send you (SID) the story 10 days ago and you never commented"
The reporter who asked about it was on Sirius yesterday afternoon.

The tirefire has gone out on it's own with no help from anyone at PSU. However, just like the Centralia Mine Fire this may smolder forever as facts and stories continue to come out in dribs and drabs.
Next problem for PSU will be hiring a new coach. I don't think there is any A-list coach that would want to take on the burden of that program for quite some time. So, do they keep an underperforming overhyping car salesman-coach or get someone who is squeaky clean but only has an max upside of 8-9 win seasons?
I think BOB was the right coach for them but he had higher aspirations.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||Can you post the email header?||
Of course XXX out your email info but narrowing in on your suspect(s) would be pretty easy if they are using email...even from a fake account.
Edit: Just saw Dave posted that they came through a cable provider. Really easy to find who it is then.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Emails are usually easy to track||
Especially when sent by non-professionals. I'd get law enforcement involved. They take this stuff very seriously now after a mother pretended to be a teen and tormented a teen so long and viciously that she committed suicide.
Every server keeps a record. With competent investigation this could be over in a week or two.

They always have a place for former Buckeyes. Maybe they need a grad transfer rb?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I love the Mouton references||
When he was on it was beautiful but it was punctuated by too many "What the..." moments. Seeing him and all the LB's play gave me my first signature as a member here, "I still blame Hopson"
I don't think we have to worry about players not reaching their potential because of coaching anymore.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||What a disappointment||
The card looked great but then Jones got caught cheating. Aldo-Edgar fight was the fight of the night but there wasn't much competition. I didn't watch all of the undercard so maybe there was a better one?

My daughter is showing promise and interest in architecture. I cannot come to grips with PSU being on the list of possibilities. Fortunately we have a few years to winnow down the possibilities.

I think you summed it up nicely and as respectfully as possible.
I grew up here and am an alum. When I see people wearing PSU gear now all I can think of is PSU Child Rapists. My wife had an old hoodie that she wore for doing yardwork and whatnot. I asked her to please get rid of it.

I came to MGoBlog from Varsity Blue when he shut that down. I remember him doing (The Original?) UFR's on Varsity Blue with basketball.

Glad to see Earl Campbell get some love. He was a wrecking machine.
