Re: Random Thoughts Again

Shore, 1st a belated best wishes on the job deal 2nd, I agree with dad, once you have gotten to the in-person part its a shoe-in unless you step on the proverbial protrusion. I'm sure you did great, more importantly, is it the place for you now that you got to see it up close and personal, the "...

I'd put that one in my pocket Lion and whistle all the way home.

Re: Florence

Tagging onto dad, I remember the hurricanes back in the 60's but more recent generations think the hyperbole of the "news" telling them the sky is falling is accurate. It isn't. Everything cycles, warmer, cooler the come and they go. Those are weather cycles. I do remember hearing about so...

Re: Kent State Pregame

I suspect we will see a highly motivated team come late Sept. KSU is not a motivating team, it's a check mark on the schedule. I'd like to read the comments prior to the OSU game in 2016, probably far worse than these. OSU is filled with the best talent in the Big 10 overall. The team will be ready ...

Re: Other College Football Games

Good points Walt.

It TCU had a decent defense the Big 10 would be an afterthought in the college sports media world at this point. :?

Re: Florence

I must interject at this junction of the scientific discussion. It is entirely my fault. We put our car in the garage recently and had the spark plugs changed, they were worn. New ignition wires were installed as were air cleaners and transmission oil and filter. All these changes improved the carbo...

Re: Pitt pre-game thread

App State is playing with the same number of scholarship players as Penn State and they didn't suffer through sanctions while we are still out of balance in some areas and very young. I don't know why the networks don't want to let the nation know App State joined Div. 1 several years ago and is eve...

Re: College Sports Scandals

How is that even possible? I'm pretty sure there is no NCAA rule or regulation that specifically limits Larry Nassar from sexually abusing any student-athlete at MSU. This they can honestly say MSU and Nassar broke NO NCAA rules or regs. I'd bet a doughnut on that position. Possibly with a glass of...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

THC in blood is detectable far longer as previously discussed but the 3 hr limit on a breathalyzer may be true although I'm hard-pressed to believe much of anything I hear that is labeled "news" anymore. The pretty boy and girl talking heads read the teleprompters and smile, lift eyebrows ...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

That description appeared as one of a psychopath. Tragic that he would murder people over a video game tournament. He was a time bomb ticking away and the fuse was very short. Why are seemingly a small segment of society so immediately violent over slights, real or imagined? I believe its been that ...
