This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

A Mac Book Pro retina display from this past fall. It is by far the best computer I have ever owned. Light, powerful and reliable. The only downside is the hard drive size, but the ssd drive is so fast I actually don't mind handing to carry an external.
You get what you pay for. Apples stuff is more expensive because they test the shit out of their hardware configurations to make sure it works correctly. After using windows for 15+ years I switched and il never go back. Besides, if you ever want to use windows, just get parallels or something like that. Best of both worlds.

I may be the only one. And I am really embarrased for this board right now.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The problem||
Is what people are finding funny. Just because I think that you shouldn't laugh at other people's misforture/mistreatment doesn't make me a jerk. And, laughing at racist/sexist jokes might just be wrong!
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The problem...||
isn't the medium with which you're voicing that opinion. The problem is that you have that opinion at all.

Some of us don't have jobs that allow us to post a ton. I usually only post when I can offer useful info on a topic, or when someone is posting something offensive. Like the other poster said, you may just consider this a harmless joke, but it's not. My wife volunteers for Safehouse here in A2. You would not believe the things that happen to women here. And this is an educated, low crime area! Sorry if my response is strong, but you hit a nerve. As a man, I'm tired of seeing other men make disparaging jokes about women. So please don't.
And I usually do enjoy your posts. Just becuase I don't post a lot, doesn't mean I don't check the site...obsessively.

I'm not sure the whole "wall street" thing is good thow out right now if your intention is to look smart. Are all the sub primes belong to you??

Do the surgery, follow the doctor's instructions. If they tell you not to walk on it, then don't. Do the PT, do your exercises at home.
Shower the morning before surgery, because you may not be able to for a few weeks after. (that really sucked...)
As soon as you can after surgery, get Vitamin E gel caps. Pop (as in break open) one a day and smear it all over your incision. My doc couldn't believe how fast my incision healed and how good it looked. Oh, and if you don't want a scar (minimize it anyway), keep the incision out of the sun as long as you can.
You're going to build up scar tissue from inactivity, so when there's a terrible ripping noise in PT after the surgery, don't freak.
Don't rush the PT after the fact or you'll get tendonitis and back to crutches you go.
Hopefully your tear won't be as bad as mine was, I was on crutches for like a year. :( Anyway, there's a summary of my ACL tear experience. Good luck!

The body language and the apparent attitude of the team during last night's game. I understand that we're young and building a toughness is going to take some time, but there appears to be no leadership from any of the players. That is really concerning me and making me feel like we may be lucky to make the round of 32.
The other huge concern is the lack of a third offensive option when shots aren't falling and teams are shutting down the pick and roll. If those two things get taken away from us we do not seem to have a thrid option. To me, that is coaching.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Agree.||
CJ Lee leaves, team lacks leadship and nose dives. Zack Novak/Stu Douglas leave... This slow start on the road thing is no longer a fluke.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Umm..||
Who's job is it to have the team ready to play? Whose job is it to have contingencies in case the team has difficulties? These losses are on B.

Remember this chant came after their guy (can't remember his name) swung his stick at our dude. I think this kind of chant is justified when one player is trying to hurt another...

That you're ready to just believe what DB has said. I actually happen to know Prof. Haithcock personally and have family members in nthe band now. I could find out their side but then its just someone reporting their side of the story. All I'm saying to you is this is a complex situation that can't just be changed without serious planning. It sounds like there was a miscommnication somewhere and DB is misinformed or isn't clear on the specifics. It's unfortunate that he chose to speaks publicly about this instead of keeping it in house. You should be savvy enough to know that maybe there's more to this situation than DB spews to the papers.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Well...||
I do agree with your first two paragraphs, but you're pretty uniformed about what happens in band week if you think it can just be skipped or moved. About 350 students make arrangements to come back to a2 early, they have tryouts for the people to be in the group, they learn or relearn all the marching techniques, set the first performance block and learn the first show. So yes, you can't really just skip it. They are talented and dedicated, but (as a former member) they would not look or sound the way they do without band week.

UM - top 3 theatre school in the country
Dance - top - 16 in the country I believe.
Summary - when you're going into a field in which it is insanely hard to get a paying job, your school makes a big difference.

Grant aid or federal student loans has nothing to do with the NCAA. IT's completely subject to government limitations based on cost of attendance, expected family contribution, and other scholarships the student receives. A student can't receive grant aid if their athletic scholarship covers the entire cost of attendance.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||No||
State or federal grant aid has nothing whatsoer to do with athletic scholarships. A walk-on could very well qualify for grant aid depending on their economic background. Of course, people who are able to walk on and pay their own way usually have no money issues, and probably wouldn't qualify for grants in the first place, but it is possible.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||For public schools athletes....||
A public school student who isn't on athletic scholarship is treated just like any other student. Their economic background may or may not be checked depending on the info they submit on their FASFA. Any grant aid they are eligible for they will receive as long as they apply on time. Those rules are set by the government for public institutions, and are constrained by the "cost of attendance" that each school sets. A basic fin aid equation is:
Expected family contribution + grant aid(if eligible) + student loans (if needed) = Cost of attendance (institution set)
For scholarship athletes:
Athletic Scholarship + grant aid(if eligible) + student loans (if needed) = Cost of attendance (institution set)
FYI, for all public schools, an athlete's cost of attendance is different than a non athlete.
AFA Private schools go, the rules for Pell or other government grants are the same. They do have more flexibility in how they use their funds for scholarships, etc .
