Re: Politics

I have been saying that for years, Crowbar. A viable centrist or moderate party would be huge.

On another note, Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance. I’m sure there was due cause and this isn’t a diversion from anything else...

Re: 2018 Preseason Thread

So, the last game for the foreseeable future at Pitt has sold out. The last time that happened was, well, the last time we played in the Ketchup Bowl. The Pitt AD said that there will really be no way to know if Penn State fans outnumber the home crowd. I think we will know. I would love to see Coac...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

_dad mentioned watching Cops. I watch LivePD on the occasional Friday or Saturday evening when there is nothing better to watch. For the most part, this accounts for my run ins with law enforcement (aside from the occasional voice mail that police are coming to get me if I don't pay some fine). Whil...

Re: College Sports Scandals

I have to say, that is not the shock I was anticipating, but you may be right that it is just preparing the masses for the possibility.

Re: 2018 Preseason Thread

I understand the point of the change. I just don't like it. This isn't a game of tiddly winks, it has big, fast young men colliding with each other; it is going to cause pain and injury from time to time.

Re: 2018 Preseason Thread

I don't like the idea of the ball getting placed on the 25 if you fair catch it. To me, while I get the safety aspect they are probably considering, you play the ball where you caught it. It will be interesting to see if your prediction is right and they worm burn kickoffs. The big risk is that the ...

Re: College Sports Scandals

Exactly! Meyer admitted he knew, even if he said he didn't to the press. He kept Smith on until the story started to become public, then he fired him. Besides the story getting out, what changed to justify firing if it wasn't before? There may be other choices, but it seems to me that they should ha...

Re: College Sports Scandals

That's a good point, _dad. She said that both Urban and Earl Bruce (I believe) convinced her not to report the instance at Florida, so if he had tried to convince her the same this time - even if it was the best of intentions rather than just for the sake of the football team - I bet she would have ...

Re: College Sports Scandals

My opinion can change as information is revealed, but at this point I do not have enough to make my mind up for sure. That said, with the information I have, I don't think Meyer stays and my gut feeling is that his statement Friday is a load of bull. If they have proof that the football staff and at...
