Derwin James, he's about as close to adding a second Peppers on defense as possible. Alternatively, having a true thumping MLB like Reuben Foster or Raekwon McMillian would be awfully nice.

1. Under. 3000 yards in 15 games is 200/game, in 13 games it's 231/game, and ultimately I don't see us making either the B1G CG or the Playoffs. I'd say 225/game seems about right with the OL and RBs hopefully salting away most of the games on the schedule. Neither O'Korn nor Speight are the type of QB I see Harbaugh unleashing for 250+ a game.
2. Under. Morris never starts another game in FBS.
3. Over. 13 games, 1000 yards is 77/game. I think DeVeon can hit 80-85/game.
4. Over. See above.
5. Over. 39.5 is just over 3/game. If the DL stays healthy, and with Brown's scheme, that's an easy one.
6. Under. I think the defense is going to be better against the pass, so we'll see a lot more runs against. Fumbles, however, go way up.
7. Under. Too hard to predict these will happen. I'd say 2 total, one of each.
8. Over. Soft schedule outside of maybe 3 games.
9. Over. That's 2 penalties, he might get there before B1G play starts.
10. Over. Including postseason, I see 12-1. Loss to OSU at the end of the season keeps us out of both the B1G champ game and the playoffs, though.

If I could go back to my college self, I would kick my own ass for choosing nuclear engineering. Way to pigeon-hole your career aspirations, dumbass.
The only saving grace of that decision is I met my wife via a coworker.

Overall it plays somewhat similar to Agricola, but without having cards in your hand. Strategy is based all off what you want to do and what your opponents are trying to do rather than driven by your cards in hand. I like having more freedom of strategy personally; not that Agricola is bad, just Caverna is better.

Finally found someone that has Caverna so I didn't have to spend $70+ to buy it, that game is actually a lot of fun and has about a million actual pieces instead of cards like you get with Agricola.

If we're counting bespoke manufacturers, I'd love to take a Drakan Spyder for a spin. I've always been a sucker for those kind of small, lightweight, road-legal cars (Lotus, Ariel, BAC, etc.).

Normally I'd agree, but with Oakmont the USGA does not do that much to the course. The only real changes to the way Oakmont sets up for member play is slightly longer rough (remember they cut it after players complained in practice rounds too) and shaving some banks leading into bunkers.
Besides practically killing Chambers Bay last year, I'm usually a fan of US Open setups - let the players shoot -20 every other week. They can deal with a very penal course once a year.

With the amount of basically free practice high school players can get, you'd be surprised. If there's a decent coach that can give them short game drills (YouTube is great for this, by the way), breaking 90 isn't hard at all - that's averaging bogey, after all. Anyone with remotely decent athletic and hand eye control can do it with the right kind of practice, unless you're playing a US Open course or trying to hit from the tips on long courses without having the requisite distance off the tee.
|8 weeks 18 hours ago||Golf||
It's actually not that hard for a decent high school golfer to get a D1 scholarship, doubly so for girls. I have a niece who has played about two years of golf at this point and will probably have an offer or two - girls that can break 90 will be in pretty good shape to find a scholarship. There really aren't a whole lot of kids interested in golf, most high schools negotiate with courses to basically have free practice, and it's generally really cheap for a university to field a team so most schools do.

I used to own a WRX, which was a lot of fun. Except the 22ish mpg on premium gas, with a 60 mile round trip commute to a job I hated. Eventually, around 140k miles, it was time for something new because I was looking at probably 3k in repairs to pass Pennsylvania's annual safety inspection. So I bought a Honda CR-Z because it was the cheapest low mileage used car that gets good mileage and has a manual to trick myself into thinking it's fun. And found a dealer giving me way more than the car was worth on trade in.
Then of course I got a new job in Oregon, to which I can easily bike to work, and wish I had my fun car again. But the moral of the story is, sometimes you have to make a sacrifice when it comes to your car, especially if you have a finite budget.

I've now owned two Subarus, a 2005 WRX and a 2016 Forester, both great vehicles. I'm looking at various cars to start a project car with, and strongly considering an aged STi.
The only brand I'll never buy again is Pontiac. I owned two different Grand Ams in my younger days, both awful, unreliable garbage automobiles.

As a card-carrying, sex-having person, I don't think my wife would appreciate me not being intimate.
Alternate universe, where I'm single, I probably choose the money. Women are great and all, but if I have no money I can't live somewhere where the women are anyway.

I'm really torn on the newer ones, they're just too much like driving a computer. The older ones still had a lot of tech (especially the R34), but you still have a manual gearbox and that wonderful, very tuner-friendly RB26 engine.

I was an ice hockey referee basically all through high school, and even kept doing it through some of college. Fantastic money, as even the little kids' games were like $12/hr, it was all cash so I totally skipped out paying taxes, and the scheduler was a real good friends with my dad so I got basically as much work as I wanted. I was lucky that I could basically not work during the summer except for a few tournaments and a goalie camp run by my friends' dad.

I don't think he's been a failure at Arizona, especially considering their lack of any success since 1998. In fact, he's basically been a success everywhere but Michigan.
