|10 weeks 4 days ago||LA already had a team||
And they packed up and left. It might be a huge market, but that doesn't make it a great location for a NFL team. You need that solid fan base. I doubt the Bills leave Buffalo for LA.

Agree with everything posted here.

34-3 Michigan with the W. Illinois field goal in scrub time.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Yup, San Antonio and OKC can't compete with the big markets||
Wait, those were the teams in the Western Conference Finals this year, you say? What?
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Not sure what role you're hiring for||
Not sure what role you're hiring for, but I'm not sure this is true across the board. Students at less prestigious schools won't even get a look from many consulting firms or high finance roles.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||The NPV of $500k in one year vs. $50k over 10 years||
Is about the same ($325k for the one year or $332k over 10 years). This assumes 3% discount, 35% tax rate for Trey's one year, and 22% effective tax rate for the $50k/year. Those are pretty favorable assumptions towards not leaving. I think the ETR over 10 years could be higher and the 3% discount is pretty damn low. More importantly, this assumes that Trey would make no money in any of the other 9 years, which is not at all realistic.
Fact is, if it doesn't work out in the NBA, he can go to Europe and earn $80k a year. In the off-season, he can take classes towards a degree. I don't think there is a way you can splice this and think that it isn't a good financial decision, if he can make that $500k in the first year. To me, that's still a pretty big if.
Best of luck Trey! We'll always have MSU 2012, Part I.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||So basically you didn't like Lolla's headliners last year||
Because Coachella and Lolla do about the same when it comes to booking, in my opinion. Last years Coachella headliners: Kings of Leon (headlined Lolla 2009), Arcade Fire (headlined lolla 2010), Kanye West (headlined lolla 2009), and the Strokes (headlined Lolla 2010).
I fail to see a significant difference there. Deadmau5 and and My Morning Jacket are pretty damn spectacular from Lolla last year too. And as mentioned above, the line-up top to bottom is generally outstanding.
Booked my ticket this morning.

Just curious. Seems like the NCAA's rule change could benefit us with these cross country recruits.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||You know how you stop misinformation?||
Tell your side of the story. Lloyd had plenty of opportunity to do so, but never did.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||yup||
Rodgers wasn't recruited out of high school either. He started at a juco.

|2 years 21 weeks ago||Dang it||
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Ok||
This is also not explicit, and my previous post was deemed "trolling, so I'm hesitant to post it. But Bacon makes a remark in an inteview with Sam Webb at around the 6:40 mark of the podcast that can be found here that "any one who thinks this is a RichRod cheerleading excercise, please inform Rich of this...also inform his lawyers."
Again, that's not explicit disapproval, so draw your own conclusions.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||That specific sentence might||
That specific sentence might not mean that RR disapproves, but Brian indicated in his previous Three and Out post that RR is not pleased:
"Bacon's been banished to the Drew Sharp area of the press box, Michael Rosenberg is livid, Rodriguez himself is apparently hugely pissed. And while I can't confirm this like the above, I can't help but think that Lloyd Carr hates this book more than anything he's ever hated."
That, to me, indicates disapproval. Of course, I don't know what/who Brian's source is, but he also says that he can confirm.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Nevermind||
Says they're "officially" prohibited in all B1G campus lots. Cans it is!
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Tailgating Question||
We have a sizeable group going, and are thinking about bringing a keg up with us. Is this allowed in the campus lots? I ask because it is not allowed at Iowa. I looked in the game day guides provided on the NU website, and didn't see it mentioned, but want to be sure.
Thanks in advance!

|2 years 25 weeks ago||Allegedly, only allegedly.||
It's unsubstantiated, but alleged, that Craig James killed five hookers while at SMU.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Marvin Robinson and Josh Furman were highly rated||
but Carvin was a 3* who allegedly picked up a late SEC offer (from Tennessee?). Prior than that, he was very under the radar.
Either way, Furman and Johnson are second year players. Let's not write them off quite yet.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||
No, I think "technically" missing all the games is sitting out the season.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||
I've got the "@ SMU" part covered.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||
Dang it. Is 28 old or something?
|2 years 28 weeks ago||He had to have been kidding re:Barca-Real Madrid||
There is no chance that a Boston homer such as he doesn't think Red Sox - Yanks is the greatest rivalry in sports.
Or he was just trolling hard. Or it was one of his stupid reverse jinx things, but I'm not sure how that would apply here.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||He might||
but to honest, I doubt he's even aware of it. Would make for much better entertainment if he cracked.
