06/29/2018 - 2:30am I understand what you're…

I understand what you're saying. But, it seems nowadays that the distinction between "fascists" and "people I disagree with" has become so small as to be negligible. I, in my life, have never actually met a fascist. Yet, by Ace's tweet history you'd believe they are pervasive in our society. The conclusion is that either many people I interact with actually are fascists, or we're operating under different definitions. To me it seems simply a reapplication of Godwin's law; if we can equate our enemies with the worst possible characters (tbh direct Nazi equations are just as common) then we're justified in any sort of action against them.

This sort of discourse seems exactly what's wrong with the political climate today.

Exactly -- Ace regularly singles out people on Twitter all the time. If you don't believe X, you are a trash human being. For example, Ace saying "it's okay to be terrible and assault people you disagree with": https://twitter.com/AceAnbender/status/1011369565274693632

Listened to the first part on my way home and was not wowed. His answers about Flint were super flimsy. Brian tried to press him on it but to no avail. On one hand it's our moral imperative to use the state's rainy day fund to replace every inch of lead pipe in Flint; but not two breaths later he says that pipes don't even cause lead poisoning (which is true). Why then would we spending hundreds of millions of state dollars on a symbolic gesture? His attack on the DEQ's report that the water was safe was just a hand-wave away too simply because it didn't fit into his "moral imperative" narrative.

My impression was that he's very good at weaving appeals-to-emotion together with just enough policy to make it seem plausible.

It was funny watching the Mexico fans go crazy in the stands when South Korea scored in the other game, which just so happened to coincide with the final whistle blowing in their game, finishing a 3-0 thrashing they took.

It takes three clicks to get to the board on mobile, and you can see about two comments per page before you have to scroll. I just can't, can't understand why everyone's vision of beautiful design is a 95-5 empty-space-to-content ratio. For example, just the OP takes up the entire page on a 1920x1080 screen. You cannot see even a single response.

Mobile site needs WAY less padding, especially on the board. On my Pixel 2 XL I can see about two comments before I have to scroll again.

Also, TLS please :)

I'm landing at SFO two hours before the game for a weekend Napa trip with the wife before a convention in San Jose -- anyone know of any gatherings in the Bay Area?

The real reason is because the UNC case showed the best strategy against the NCAA is one of absolute denial and obstruction. Any program that is transparent gets taken to the cleaners (e.g. Michigan stretchgate)

The line on this is bizarre. SCar by 8? It... seems like free money?

11/15/2017 - 12:14am The committee literally

The committee literally doesn't care if you lose. It means nothing. The only metric is wins. Solution: Play two games a week. I'm convinced an 11-9 team would be ranked #1 right now with losses to Kent State, Army, UTEP, BYU (twice), EMU, Citadell, Illinois, and NDSU.

10/15/2017 - 11:59pm IMHO hook is big here. 23-13

IMHO hook is big here. 23-13 PSU is my target score from a cold calculated betting standpoint. Take the points, Michigan covers on the road, and I would not be incredibly surprised if they manage the outright. My last three bets in Michigan games have all been against Michigan (MSU and OSU last year, Indiana this year -- 3/3), but I'm taking Michigan this week.

10/05/2017 - 10:16am I've yet to see an argument

I've yet to see an argument for paying players that passes Title IX scrutiny. We can moan all we want, but the law is basically specifically written to keep this from happening. The only realistic option is to allow players to profit off their own likeness, which is an NCAA amateurism thing but I don't think has Title IX implications. EVen then, this would affect less than 1% of student-athletes.

09/27/2017 - 10:38am I know this is unprecedented,

I know this is unprecedented, but Michigan should really claim the 2013 National Championship. Played the title against a team that was paying HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS illegally to players, and subsequently (could) get the death penalty. If anyone had a case to declare a title after a loss it's that 2013 team.

02/24/2017 - 2:13pm It was patched before it went

It was patched before it went public, and (most of) the cached results that contain potentially private information were purged before the disclosure. All in all, it's highly unlikely that you individually had any information leaked. Now, that's not to say you shouldn't change your passwords, but it's a far cry from Heartbleed where there were tens of thousands of servers leaking information to anyone who came calling after the public disclosure.

I don't think there's anyway to have moderation that isn't biased, and there are literally almost an endless number of forums for which one can discuss these issues. It's not like we're starving for places to comment on politics (I direct you to your Facebook). I believe there's value in places where we can set it aside.
