Not dismissing this thought by any means but offenses run what 60-80 plays a game? That's like 15-20 1 thru 3 or 4's they have to count. In the heat of the moment that is pretty easy to get mixed up in my book.

Co-eds and alcohol? Sounds like a party to me.

I'm too old to care about the "brand" I'm wearing (but I did in HS) and the lead image should massage any worries over the whole "It's a bball brand" thing. Jumpman logo=good things.

Say what now?

I think this qualifies for an exception considering it's a seminal moment in sporting history.

No, because it's the fucking internet where you have services like Twitter where short-hand/lack of punctuation is celebrated. Face it, the majority of the internet is not looking to be published in the Harvard Law Review.

Wow. When did Jehu/Chesson become senior's? Guess the whole lost year that was last season has warped my personal time/space continuum.

Probably not, people are forgetting that the Jumpman brand has been used in football before.

Please tell me more. I was completely unaware that "drones" were soley an American problem.

I say this with all honesty, but do you really think Harbaugh would let a recruit-scratch that- ANYONE even Dantonio himself show up to one of his biggest recruiting events of the year in another teams gear? This is JMFH we are talking about here. No doubt in my mind that the offending individual would be given their choice of a maize/blue shirt or escorted of campus. (Formatting done on mobile, apologies)
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I think it has more to do||
I think it has more to do with the whole "build me a stadium or I'm moving the team that's been here for 60 years to X" line.
If it really was a "Hey Guys, I want to build a new stadium. Can you help me out here with some tax breaks/funding etc.?" and everything was approved ala a referendum than things could be seen a little more on the up and up.

...but you have to play the display lottery with Samsung. Are you getting a genuine Samsung display (e.g. high quality)? Or are you getting a size made by a contract manufacture that is inferior in everyway possible?.
Also, it's not even like you can stay away from the "budget" model and expect a good TV as say a model comes in sizes 48", 50", 52" there is a very good chance that each of those displays are made by a different manufacture even though your staying within the same model line. Plus they've been known to serve pop-up ads to your through the TV.
I was in the market last year for a TV after my beloved Samsung plasma when kaput and I was very suprised to learn that AV geeks do not hold Sammie in high esteem anymore due to the above mentioned issues.

Did you buy my tickets last year? Last year they went to someone in Ohio. (J/k of course)
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Just to play devil's advocate||
Just to play devil's advocate here (and know that I agree with you in principle) the coach may have been "riding him" for the wrong reasons (e.g. yelling at him based on who his Daddy is) and not necessarily his play.
I've seen/watched this happen before and it can quickly turn personal.
EDIT: Charged w/ assault by kettlebell; my above point was only for non-kettlebell related offenses.

Nike (nor anyone) cannot trademark a color; they can however trademark a name i.e. Maize.
If Adidas wanted to straight take the RGB codes of old Nike stuff and market them they are well within their right to as long as they do not call it "maize".
Adidas, as well as the AD made the decision to use the highlighter yellow end of story.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||The fact that the NCAA/SEC||
The fact that the NCAA/SEC are outraged by these camps is utterly ridiculous. It's quotes like these, unlike everything else in college athletics, that show the camps are actually beneficial to prospects and allow them the opportunity to interact with a school without having to spend a fortune on "unofficial" visits.

It is. Say one kid decides that college is not for them, then you can easily transfer those funds to the next in line with no penalty. Of course if you wanted to simply "gift" those funds to that child they would have to pay the appropriate taxes for a non-qualified use of the funds.
I started a 529 for my as yet-to-even-be-thought-of- future children in "my" name with the intent of transferring the balance once a physical child shows up. Of course that investment is currently in an 18+ age bracket which is shitty but in doing the math it worked out to be the best available option for me (us).

I abhore people who watch this shit to the tune that I make a point to remind my wife that watching the Real Housewives of Whatever County makes her dumber by the minute.
I understand that everyone has their own tastes and I can respect that you enjoy Two and a Half Men (because is an actual scripted show) but this scripted "reality" bullshit only serves to dumb down our population.

...that's the problem. For fucks sake why do they play everyday? Why does the season take 7 months? We bemoan any team in any other sport that is .500 and reaches the playoffs but in baseball that is to be expected. If our 1st string QB only completed 3 out of 10 passes we would all be jumping off the damn ledge but in baseball that guy is considered a saint.
