Since when do we play Wisconsin?

You know Saban would be doing it if he could. Harbaugh is utilizing anything and everything at his disposal to make this team better (as he should). Sounds like sour grapes. Also, as someone else mentioned, Saban has no problem bending the rules when they work to his advantage. Harbaugh isn't even bending rules here, so Saban can pound sand.

There's a difference between questioning whether or not the offer was a good one and being a dick about it. I don't doubt that you were a huge fuck up, but it's more than unfair to associate Duanaway or Harbaugh with that.
If you don't think Harbaugh knows what he's doing, fine, but perhaps a wait and see approach is best here, is all I'm saying.

Your first mistake was going to Big Boy. That is the most disgusting place I've ever had the misfortune of eating at.

It didn't have to suck. If it were in the hands of someone else, they could have been as amazing as the first three.

Another plausible explanation - the bottom of the star destroyer was the side facing the incoming air, which would effectively turn that side into a heat shield. The top side, which we see in the trailer would have been pretty much unharmed by the heat from re-entry in this scenario.

I stopped paying attention to anything Mark Cuban says after he tried arguing that net neutrality was a bad thing, when he clearly has zero understanding if what it actually is.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think we are all reading||
I think we are all reading way too much on a spring game that occured 3 months after coach got on campus. We know we have talent at most positions, and we know that we have a guy that can coach them up. I'm not really that worried about much on defense, and on offense the QB and WR are obvious worrisome areas. This isn't going to be a championship caliber team, but it will be in most games based on coaching and talent on 80% of the field alone.

This has already been covered I'm sure, but has Brian said he'd do a UFR-type thing on the spring game? It'd be interesting, to say the least.

Eh, I don't know if depth is a worry, especially if we get Rudock. We have a lot of bodies at QB now. The problem is that none of them are particularly great with the evidence that we have.

We're still reading about it and discussing it, no? Not surprising to me at all.

There's not much of a debate to be had regarding vaccinations. The plain and simple fact is that there is no evidence to show that they cause autism. The doctor who originally spread those lies had his medical license revoked. Also, the plain and simple fact is that kids who don't get vaccinated are many times more likely to die from preventable illnesses and spread those illnesses to others.
Preaching to the wrong crowd here, but anti-vaccine people are up there with moon landing conspiracy theorists in terms of people who get me going.

I would argue that someone who relies on subscriptions to his insider content has a poorly thoght-out business plan if he expects to sell information and not expect that people will talk about it.
How do you define "proprietary information?" I can give you the inside scoop of what kinds of Friskies my cat likes best, and slap a pay wall on it, and then is it a crime if you decide to tell someone about it? Once you divulge information to someone else, whether for free or by business agreement, it is now their knowledge and they can do with it what they please, unless part of the contractual agreement was that they not share the information. Even then, you have no way to enforce that.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I can't speak for others, but||
I can't speak for others, but IMO you should be able to share whatever you want (short of copying and pasting an entire article). The notion that you should have to keep information secret because it's behind a pay wall is odd to me. You now know the information, there's nothing immoral about sharing it.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I actually didn't think that||
I actually didn't think that the Sugar Bowl call was a bad call, especially in light of the 2011 Iowa game where we had the exact same call go against us.
The one that pops to mind is the 2012 Outback Bowl vs South Carolina, where were in the 3rd quarter with the lead I believe, had a 3rd down, ran the ball and was clearly about a half yard short, and the officials gave us a first down (even after measuring!) Spurrier was about to blow his lid off, but it turned out ok for South Carolina because the next play, Jadeveon Clowney deccapitated Vincent Smith and recovered his fumble, and SC scored a couple of plays later.

I don't really hate anything he does, but I've never heard a song that he's been involved with that I particularly enjoy either. Sub par voice, very basic drum beats and guitar work. Perhaps I haven't explored enough into his music to find something interesting, but I haven't really been compelled to.
I will say that I respect his work, but I don't really enjoy it at all.

Lou Holtz is actually pretty funny, and probably a good guy.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||This is a useless point.||
This is a useless point. Recruiting stars have been proven time and time again to be good INDICATORS (not gurantees) of success at the college level. If you are a 5 star, you are more likely to be a standout player in college than if you are a 4 star, and so on. This is the trend, however even 5 star guys have a surprisingly high rate of not making an impact in college.
Now how does a recruiting ranking predict NFL success? Not at all. 3-5 years of development (or lack thereof) in college, random nature of where players are drafted, who is coaching them, which established starters they are on the roster with, etc will drown out any significance in star ratings coming out of high school by a long shot.
That, and there are many, many times more 3 star ranked guys and below coming out of high school, so purely statistically NFL rosters are more likely to be filled with them than 5 star guys. So, basically, this guy's twitter post is pretty much meaningless.

Barry Sanders has to be in the conversation. He was just so ridiculously good in a way that no one has been since.

Thank you, and the list goes on. And this is exactly my point. Music is so much more diverse than it ever has been and there is so much more out there. Musicians are not less talented than they used to be. There is something out there for everyone - you just have to find it.

Or, blame the people who consume said music. Instead of bitching about how bad today's music is, go out and find it (it really is out there, no matter what you're into) and support it.
