This is a popular misconception. The Alabama State Constitution actually says that the governor is nominated by the electorate, under the "advice and consent" of Nick Saban.

The confirmation hearings are grueling, and involve grilling on the nominee's understanding of split safety coverages.

A bit. I have three seats and face was $125 each; got $175 a piece on StubHub, so after fees it was a modest profit -- not that I'd rather just be at the game of course. Like I said, they did sell within 10 minutes, and that was actually last week before the Maryland game and the CGD announcement. Could have just been lucky with someone looking for 3, though.

My seats -- the ten yard line about 30 rows back -- sold above face in like 10 minutes on StubHub.

Someone with the capability please get a raw 4K rip of the game -- this would be great for future hype videos

Came early, went down to the stadium (they let you on the field from 12-5). Having dinner at Fiddler's Hearth right now -- anyone meeting up to watch State lay an egg against Utah State (and the other games)?

If you want a good spot you'll need to be there early, 7am-ish for the 9am start. But yes, no tickets or anything, just show up!

08/20/2018 - 8:21pm is by far… is by far the best in my opinion. They've been operating a long time, great number of games across all sports (and goofy props), instant deposits and withdrawals, it's all around great.

I am going to the game, but please feel free anyone to make this :)

They floated the smear job and victim blaming last night and enough of their own fan base bought it that they know they won't have an internal riot if he's retained. Now it's just time to play the news cycle game, let things cool off, and reinstate him in time for that TCU road game.

08/03/2018 - 2:37am Nice.

I'm using DisplayFusion on Steam, but it's basically the same thing. I switched from a 3 monitor setup at home to an ultrawide, although I'm still on a 4 (!) monitor setup at work: one main, one to the left, one above, one vertical to the right for documents.


UTL1 or 2 as the backdrop? Not bad. Probably my #1 and #2 experiences as a season ticket holder

I'm on the ultrawide master race as well -- I wish we could GoFundMe to get back

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.

06/29/2018 - 2:01am Exactly -- Ace regularly…

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":

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 :)

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)

With this snow there may be less than five total passes thrown in this game.

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.

Looks like YouTube TV has some riders with it... must be some contractural exclusion for streaming NFL games to mobile. Last nights prime time game was like this too.
