Braylon did a flip once while while running out of the Victory formation. I still remember seeing Lloyd immediately get him on the sidelines and get in his face. Didn't see Braylon in the Victory formations for some time after that.

My knowldge is a year or so out of date, but when we looked around epub options, we discovered that the idea of a strict and standard format is still a dream. It's like the internet used to be, with specific customization needed for certain browsers or in this case epub readers.
http://calibre-ebook.com/ was the tool that kept bubbling to the surface as a way to convert ebooks and get them working on various devices. Amazon also has its own publishing platform specifically for Kindle. We found some specific issues in terms of taking something optimized for a Kindle and tossing it on a Samsung tablet, but if you're not doing anything too tricky the differences aren't horrid.

I can sympathize with her point to some degree. My semi-desirable (not Palo Alto, Menlo Park but also not Santa Clara) Silicon Valley town was running at 1.8x the national cost of living and buying absolutely murders your savings since the real estate specific cola is 3.8x and large amounts of cash down payment or all cash transactions are the key since it is always a multiple offers environment. I had to go up to 55% down to finally win a bidding war and that hurts in many ways.
Plus CA is rough in that it has a high sales tax and a high income tax. Normally you get one or the other (or they get you on property taxes). On the hand plenty of pay offs for living out there, have to take the good with the bad.
I can see being somewhat salty when the Aid office merely looks at your parents combined income and goes "Nope." Although to play the poor me is in bad taste because no one that level of income is hurting in SV by any stretch and her whole clothing is a complete "What the hell?". However I did run into plenty of folks who assumed that six figures automatically means you have suitcases filled with 100s just lying around your home and how I wish that was the case.

Since it is unpopular day...
I would honestly support the hiring of Charlie on the administrative side along the lines of what TJ Wheist does. For all this flaws at fielding a balanced college offense and clock managment, you can't deny his skills. He made Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen look like viable pro options to the point people drafted them and churned some NFL WRs as well. Mid to high six figures a year as Passing Game Quality Control Guy.

It's also amusing in that WD spent time in hot water for a Twitter rant. I guess he can relate.

You are welcome. The book came out after her tenure so it didn't have to be a super serious academic text. You might even be able to get it via the public library.

Actually less at Harvard. When you first arrive the divide is clear. Because Harvard is more success at encouraging networking via societies, dining clubs, and also provides large stipends to low income students so they can participate, come graduation fewer members of the senior class have weak ties.
Thus their graduates place well (this being one of multiple factors) and the institution's rank benefits from it.
Plus it reduces drop outs which harms the rank.

I would direct you to the book 'Paying for the Party' by Dr Elizabeth Armstrong, who also happens to be a tenured professor at Michigan.
In summary it shows that the first gens and lower income leave large schools such as IU or Michigan with social networks that are weaker. You can tell the wealth of someone by the clothes they wear, the car they drive, the fact they can put up a 150 dollar tab at the bar every Fridaly, etc. While people are not so gauche as to check your bank account at the door to a paty, you will also fail to make it into certain circles if you cannot display certain markers of wealth and status.
With that you being the typical result. Some will overachieve just as others underachieve.

The Tranell Morant resume has Zook and Erickson's cell numbers in the reference section. I really hope those guys have Google Voice numbers they give out for these kinds of purposes or something, because if that is the actual private cell line, ouch.

That Vegas, as always sets its lines and attempts to control them in such a manner that they make money, not because they want to accurately predict the future with them.

Gundy when Pelini is unemployed and on the market? I suppose you can argue that Gundy did a bit more with a bit less than Pelini, but Pelini has a remarkably high floor at Nebraska, the ceiling just wasn't quite what the program wanted. Pelini also has roots to our prime recruiting ground and such.
The only reason Gundy seems more attractive is we've never seen him to lose to teams we care about, but if you're at the stage where you are calling Gundy's agent, why not call Pelini's agent first?

I mean I'm not shedding any tears over Hoke's looming depature, but it strikes me as unfortunate timing we have a post titled to celebrate his depature on Thanksgiving. Would have been classier to go with a Hate Week themed item.

This game really challenges Brian's assertion that coaching the Raiders would be a worse gig than cleaning up this mess.

Has anyone ever seen Braylon and Funchess together at the same time? I mean think about it. You have drop prone Braylon who is no longer playing pro ball due to his injuries. Then you have a Braylon-lite drop prone and often gimpy Funchess.

It's simple troll or stupid person logic. The fact that RR got Casteel and also had a year off to think about the fact his defense consistently regressed at Michigan means we never should have fired him. Not to mention Gibson moving over to a non coaching role before leaving 'Zone entirely. None of RR's growth could have come from his year off and time to reflect on what went wrong here. So if we'd kept him, we'd be winning NCs right now clearly.

With Denard I'll agree, but Devin has shredded B1G secondaries depsite the fact he has never had a dedicated QB coach and constant OC changes. The current model of Devin we see on the field is not a great passer, but there was potential somewhere in all this.
|18 weeks 11 min ago||Reflecting on Denard and||
Reflecting on Denard and Devin, on one hand it is awesome we've brought in a pair of explosive QBs. However it seems to have cost us the ability to mitigate QB mistakes. John Navarre or early career Henne both had flaws but the ten other guys around them could cover for them. Whereas now it's totally dependent on one guy being hot every place or else pretty much doom.

You should wait till the 4th, I might be drunk enough to find you funny at that time.

I wonder which 6-6 team we'll bowl against that is going to crush any hope or misplaced pride that tOSU will fail to crush next week...

That's not horribly untrue. They catch a couple of those slants and they'd have eight more points at least. Their QB is just having things bounce off the WR's hands, we're nowhere close to that functional.
