Now rebuilding a house 5 times on the coast because hurricanes/surge keep knocking it down is just stupid and I would agree with you.
However, forcasting tornadoes is a crap shoot at best, just think about how many "warnings" Michigan gets yet we never see anything come of it. Saying you cant build there is asinine, unless you want to make the entire Plains area off limits, as it is literally a 1 in a (insert large number) chance of happening again. The fact of the matter is, is that the topography of the Plains lends itself to the formation of these super cells and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it.
Having went through my first tornado scare last year, and in speaking to coworkers, this is just a fact of life down here that everyone accepts and hopes it never hits them.

So right now I'm just trying to kill all the crabgrass/chickweed that is what currently passes for "grass" in my yard and planning on doing a major re-seeding this fall.

While yes, the per subscriber fee for ESPN would increase. If TV was a strict ala carte model, I would have to think you would see these ridiculous fee's paid to the conferences start to hit a ceiling and come down (supply/demand). Right now there is such a huge supply (subscribers) that they can afford to throw buckets of money at a conference just for the right to broadcast a random Tuesday night game but if that cost starts being shouldered by actual sports fans, expect everyone to say f*ck it I'll watch it at Bdubs (if at all). I honestly do not think the demand is there for XX million subscribers to pony up $50 a month for just ESPN, and end up watching the crap they put on TV.
Best thing everyone can hope for is that Fox Sports 1 takes off and gives ESPN a run for the money (though it retrospect, they will probably overpay to get a "name" conference on board).

However, you have to remember you are dealing with a bunch of salesmen and they started hem/hawing around the time I was supposed to start.
When I backed out they couldnt believe it as I had scored off the charts on the tests they administered and was the only prospect they extended an offer too.

You would be suprised at how many ways blue can be worn in corporate America via shades or just prints such as puppytooth, bengal stripes, pinstripe, gingham, Prince of Wales etc. and bam before you know it you've got 15 dress shirts that are all within the same color family.
My wife always gets on me for buying too much blue in regards to say polo shirts but when it comes to my dress shirts she has never complained as you just let your tie do the talking (yellow, navy, pink, paisley etc.).
Plus when you branch out into pink and purple (real men wear it) then you find no need for green or red in your wardrobe.
and that is your Mgofashion advice for the day.
|11 weeks 23 hours ago||I concur with that||
I concur with that assessment, face it, if you've grown up playing football, you have a favorite program. Too many of these kids seem to think "well I'm a 5 star blue chip of awesomeness, I need to go to X school, without thinking that hey I really dont like X school", and then they end up at a MAC or D2 school.
This is why I dont like it when kids commit to a coach Vs. the school. Coaches can (and should) be a factor in your decision, just not the whole, and kids need to take into account the entire fit of academics, and sports.

Question: How can you re-classify at the HS level?
Googles says Collegiate is a private K-12 school, which I would assume would mean he essentially held himself back and completed another year of HS even though presumably he had the grades to move on. I mean they dont give out medical hardships at the HS level correct?
Other kids, such as McGary have went the opposite route, graduated HS, and spent a development year at a Miltary school/academy etc. This has seemed to occur when a kid was hurt his senior year and didnt get a high profile and/or wanted to get bigger stronger before moving on. I would think that this is what you would have to do in order to re-classify instead of just saying..aw shucks I got hurt and lost a season so I'm going to not move forward with my class.
Cavet: You do have cases such as Austin Hatch where they reclassify due to extreme hardships but breaking a bone isnt a extreme hardship.

Well this year they went down for the Michigan game and as that was the weekend the GF was supposed to be buried everyone was asking how he was coping with it and he told the group to "not worry about it, its not a big deal".
Its hearsay but still in my mind it helps to lend credibility to the fact that the team knew what was going on.

Look, I consider myself a techie, I've rooted my previous phones and currently my tablet, I can dial into my home network from my phone etc. and I keep up on the latest and greatest but I'll be damned if I use an app for such simple and mundane tasks as buying milk.

The next 52 years, excluding matchups that did not feature Big 10/Pac 10 teams saw the conference go 16-31, thats not exactly a steller record so yes I do think travel has something to do with it.
Is your point about the population shift valid? Yes, of which we are currently seeing with the SEC's dominance but at least during the 60/80s I would have thought that Michigans name recognition was pretty steller to the point they should have been able to cherry pick the very best of that WC talent had they attempted to recruit someone, so you cannot tell me that talent alone has caused the PAC 10 be so good in the RB when their record in other bowls is about as good as the Big 10's.
