Twice as many wins as losses and an organization of players and coaches that generally resembles a football team sounds just great to me

Just over half way myself. Reading Kindle version so I'm not sure what page exactly.
It's incredible how simultaneously hilarious and depressing the book can be...

"Think of these position designations as Gaussian distributions in close proximity to each other."
What a perfect explanation. Only Brian would describe the position overlap so aptly

That moment you talk about Brian, that is right now for me.
Thanks a lot dude.

The lack of actual information in these pressers is astounding

I agree with most here - the acting/writing left a lot to be desired. What made the intial season of TWD so compelling was that it was truly terrifying to watch - I've seen my share of horror films and I don't think any were as brutally suspenseful as the first few episodes of TWD. I think this was mainly attributable to the characters being portrayed so well (Andrew Lincoln mostly). Their expressions of horror were completely convincing to me.
I didn't get any of that in FTWD. The only character that has been exposed to a walker for the first 95% of the episode wasn't even convinced that he didn't hallucinate the whole thing, so of course this pilot lacked that terror associated with the first.
Of course, TWD has gotten so much worse over time. Maybe I'm just tiring of the same main characters, but the dialogue is so terribly dull, and most episodes now are so slow and dialogue-centric that I find myself nodding off during episodes. That would have been unthinkable early in the show. This isn't to say that issues faced when reconstructing post-apocalyptic society can't be very compelling, but rather that the acting, and in my opinion mainly the writing, haven't been as good as they need to be once the show is about something other than frantically killing zombies.
So I think there's potential for FTWD because the storyline could be so captivating if presented effectively. But I don't have much confidence based on the pilot

Well, I'm not sure there's any sense in trying to apply logic to zombie transformations. I tend to agree that massive slow moving masses of zombies are more terrifying than "fast, super strong" zombies as well. But it's certainly not because I find the transformation more believable. It just seems more terrorizing

His ESPY speech was phenomenal. To those that haven't watched it I highly recommend that you take 15 minutes today to do so.

The strategy whenever Donnal and Bielfeldt are in the game should be to foul, foul, and foul some more. Their big men cannot shoot free throws and Donnal/Bielfeldt are way overmatched

We're going to need to hold serve in these types of games to make the dance this year. I don't expect us to beat the top third of the big ten on the road, but we really can't afford to lose at home or on the road to middle of the pack and below teams

The question probably shouldn't be "what works in the Big Ten," but rather "what works against Ohio State."

It's crazy to think this means no from Harbaugh. But at the same time it's also pretty unlikely that a deal is "in place" as some reports have suggested if we are indeed still contacting multiple other established head coaches

So now we have threads that don't themselves link to senseless bullshit, but threads predicting the existence of future threads that link to senseless bullshit.
Isn't CC season just wonderful?

Minnesota this year for me. The writing may have been on the wall starting with Notre Dame/Utah, but the optimist in me was willing to chalk that up combinations of good defenses, a young offensive line, and Gardner being irreparably broken from last year. But with Minnesota, it became exceedingly obvious that Hoke simply can't keep up with what's going on on the field, and further that his players simply haven't developed anywhere near the rate of our competition.

As others have stated, the first thing I would do if I were you is to determine the specifications of your laptop (mainly, amount of RAM and number and type of processors). Without this information, possible solutions range from simple and cheap (installing an antivirus, adding more RAM) to expensive (buying a new machine because your hardware sucks), to complicated (reinstalling the OS if you don't have a copy)

Does Win8 really routinely operate out of swap? We like to poke fun at Windows developers (Microsoft in general) but I can't imagine designing an OS that either doesn't realize when it's swapping or decides that routinely swapping is a reasonable thing for every day user activities (browsing, itunes, etc)
