Re: Iowa Pre-Game

I agree with you, Underlion. We have been ranked 4 or 5 after each game but when it comes time to predict a winner it is "call me when you beat someone good" or "if you get left out at the end, it because of the creampuff start to the season." As if Penn State is the only team to...

Re: What's left of the 2017 baseball season

I heard about this on the radio as I stopped for my morning snacks at 7-11 yesterday. Based on the report, and the fact that it was a classic rock station discussing it, I decided not to watch the video footage. I have a 2 1/2 year old granddaughter and I don't need that kind of images in my brain...

Re: Iowa Pre-Game

I believe this group of young men is doing their best to shake off that image of a slow starting, 4th quarter, team. At least, that is what I am getting from some of the interviews and articles. They have done a decent job of this in the first three games, but it could be argued that they are doing ...

Re: Politics

Thanks for the laugh, _dad!

My thinking is, if we didn't care, we wouldn't bother...

Ok, time to get off your lawn.

Re: Iowa Pre-Game

I have been a little preoccupied this evening helping my son move. I was planning on reading the CFN preview in the morning to see where anti PSU Pete had us. I guess I don't have to now, so thanks for saving me a few minutes, Shore!

Re: Iowa Pre-Game

I will give you that one, no team is the same away - hence, home field advantage. For some reason, I immediately thought of the Captain Obvious commercials when I read that line. I have read a few previews but haven't seen too much of Iowa in the first three weeks. My brain goes back to some of the...

Re: Politics

_dad, If we were talking about legislation, you would be correct, but my closing in comment was in regards to his ability to be an asshole. Thankfully, this totally transparent liar, as you call him, seems to know little or nothing of how the political process works here. He probably doesn't even re...

Re: Politics

I hope you are right, _dad, but his knuckleheadedness is enough to make me wonder. Add into the mix his penchant to throw a shiny object out to distract (which is an apt yet inept comparison to war) and the fear is stronger. As for the Burns documentary... I have yet to watch it but the episodes are...

Re: Politics

MY best guess is that his ego requires the support and feedback that he gets at campaign rallies and he doesn't get it from regular presidential speeches because of the split in the nation. I am more concerned with his seeming willingness to use nuclear weapons to destroy an entire nation over the a...

Re: Post-sPitt

Nebraska is down a TD to Northern Illinois and I think I saw Air Force scored to even the game with Michigan.
