Young Frankenstein is a perfectly executed masterpiece.

04/15/2018 - 4:35am My mother-in-law died of this

My mother-in-law died of this cancer when it recurred 10 years after initial tumor removal.  My understanding is that it almost always comes back, very aggressively, and usually in half that time or less.

However, we now live in increasingly promising times with respect to new treatments for cancer.  This type of cancer was cured in a couple of patients at Duke with an immuno-therapy that used the polio virus.  Story aired on 60 Minutes a couple years ago.  Fascinating stuff.

Not trying to sugar-coat this, but it would seem that there's legitimate reason for a degree of optimism going forward.

So make it his weekly duty to tailor for the upcoming opponent, 2-3 philosophically-different (out of left field), never-before-seen plays.  At coach's disposal for those situations when they MUST pick up X yards.  And/or, let him get creative within Harbaugh's philosophy, which could use some fresh takes - craft a new, hybrid philosophy.

This whole shark humper meme has jumped the shark.  Enough already.

Glad to see there's still some creativity on this board.  I hope Dan Anus really shits the bed at Bama.

Dude built a very good OL at Stanford.  JH brought him back on staff coming here.  He's a very capable coach (aware of the criticism), and I think he will prove it.

Yes.  According to local reporter, a laceration on a knuckle (not specific on which - maybe the asshole alignment knuckle?) colliding with Burkhead, requiring 4 stitches.  It was pretty a pretty bloody scene.  Imagine the immediate, collective panic on that practice field.

I agree, but across the country, students (and often faculty) at institutions of higher learning protest to (and do) prevent speakers with different POV.  The MSU administration (and apparently UM's from what I'm reading here) are just taking a page out of that playbook.

01/20/2018 - 12:40pm You are one administration

You are one administration too late with that comment.

01/18/2018 - 11:01pm Agree.  And if Drevno felt he

Agree.  And if Drevno felt he needed to apologize for something, then the players probably thought so too, and it was therefore much appreciated by them.  Lot of people putting such a negative twist on this.  No one here knows all of what was saidi n that meeting, or what precisely (or generally?) he apologized for.  May have been a real constructive heart to heart with his players.  It's likely some collective resolve came from it.

Funchess should have caught that pass on 2nd to last play in endzone.  Game over victory if he does.  just had to break to the inside.  Don't understand that one.  Looks like he saw it and didn't react.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am able to distinguish "TK" from "umbig11".  Not easy, but I can do it.  Perhaps I'm gifted?

You're seeing a quarterback "make the system" in SF.  Jimmy Garappolo is the real deal.  I live in NE and the conjecture on the radio shows over how/why that steal of a deal went down is recurring fodder.

Speaking of which, is anybody else looking forward to seeing what vicious Vic can do for the Gophers? I wanted to see him try QB here, so extremely interested to see how he plays at the position. What can I say? He had me with that hair!

Both of those schools have had great to excellent QB play over that stretch, to reinforce the importance of those position groups.

12/14/2017 - 9:59am But didn't Google experiment

But didn't Google experiment with free city-wide wifi years back?  I thought it was Kansas City.  That would solve the last mile.

I know there's all the legal interference, but the non-compete bullshit smells so bad, buying off legislators doesn't surprise, but I can't believe it holds up in court.

12/14/2017 - 8:52am That 460K number must be all

That 460K number must be all divisions.  Just D1 that would be roughly 4,500 athletes per school?  That sounds real high.

First rule of website re-work projects is to avoid providing status reports and updates if at all possible.

You're good - well done. The "/s" is the worst practice ever. If you have to broadcast that you're being sarcastic, then you're not executing it very well.

12/03/2017 - 1:56pm And how important was the CCG

And how important was the CCG for the champion that was left out?  8 team CFP with P5 champ auto-bids removes so much subjectivity.  Settles it on the field.  If you can't win your conference, then you don't belong - but you still have a shot at an at-large bid if you're impressive enough.  All of you who think these ridiculous arguments are "fun" can argue about the 3 at-large bids.  

How does a 4 team field make sense with 5 power conferences.  Someone's always left out, or better yet there's 2 teams from the same conference?  Anybody else sick of the same 6 teams always in the mix of the final 4?  I think with 8 teams we'd discover that those 6 aren't always the best.  Because we'd SETTLE IT ON THE FIELD.  I'd like to see USC in the mix this year.  Don't they deserve that?

12/03/2017 - 1:41pm Please explain to me how 6

Please explain to me how 6 teams are better than 8.  What is this obsession with including subjectivity in the process (selecting the two bye teams - huge advantage)?

Tell ND to join a conference or fuck off.

12/03/2017 - 1:27pm And a 12-1 with quality

And a 12-1 with quality opponents is flashier than a 12-1 with FCS games.

12/03/2017 - 6:21am Those "nightmare" scenarios

Those "nightmare" scenarios are extreme (to make your point, I understand) but they anomolies, and won't occur that often.  In general, a system where the playoff field is decided on the field is going to be much more fair than a subjective beauty contest.  Want to go to the playoff?  Win your conference.  Let the only subjective piece of this for the committee be the 2-3 at-large bids (assuming an 8 team CFP, and possible auto G5 bid), with no conference championship criteria.
