Re: OSU thread

OSU has more of "margin of error" here than PSU - so Penn State will need to minimize their errors (penalties, TOs, dropped passes) and get some errors from OSU that show up on the scoreboard (missed FGs, key TOs). Another stat to watch will be special teams ability to create field positio...

Re: Politics

Sadly I agree with that last paragraph 100%. I think we would all agree what our Founding Fathers intended and what we would all hope for is a that a jurist bound by law and the Constitution be seated on the court and not one with an anticipated political pedigree. Maybe term limits should be in con...

Re: Politics

Couple points I agree 100% Garland deserved a vote - he was duly nominated via the process and should have been either confirmed or denied appointment on the merit of his capability to do the job. He should not have been denied the opportunity because the Rs pulled a reverse scroogie. That's precise...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Was at the Yankee game yesterday and Gaffigan had a video spot joking if fans cheered loud enough they could win one of his kids.

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

As a follow up for travelers - my TTP application to renew took less than a month to process - got my new card in mail, thankfully before a trip last week and I am back in the expedited screening lane, I get to keep my shoes on and leave my computer in the case. The TSA pre check does save time thro...

Re: Politics

There hasn't been a rush - Kavanaugh has been through the appropriate private and public hearings and has been through multiple FBI background checks including one since his SCOTUS nomination. You should be asking - why are Ds asking for delays - and the answer is simple - they want to push this vot...

Re: Illinois Pregame

I think this game illustrates the impact of TOs for a team that is young, talented but not seasoned / dominant. In the first half you had three plays: Holland fumble likely took 7 off the board Scott not covering fumble allowed Illinois 7 INT before half gave Illinois 3 So PSU lost the first half TO...

Re: Kent State Pregame

Overall I couldn't be much happier coming out of the OOC schedule - yeah I'd like to see them clean up some of the penalties from the Kent State game but they happen. But through 3 games (and yes I know the competition will get a lot tougher) Offense Given he lost 3 NFL caliber skill guys McS has do...

Re: College Sports Scandals

The Aggies got boatloads of alumni contributions to the football program - far above any other program.
