I've given it 24 hours but I have to say I strongly prefer the old interface. I love the staff and the 11w community but the new GUI feels like LGHL (the UI is what keeps me away from LGHL). The functionality on my Droid is not great. Can't scroll left to right to see new top stories at very top of homepage.

He got us Holmes and Dixon? Pfft, that's so two days ago. What has he done for 2015?

Congrats to a guy who doesn't receive as much recognition as he probably deserves.

MSU gets a consolation prize...maybe...

Update from Detroit paper...

“Something happened, I don’t want to put it out there what it was,” she said of her son’s recent official visit, “but I had a bad experience at MSU.”

Asked to elaborate, she said: “It was something on my end, I don’t want to get into specifics.”

Crowe said she and Malik’s father, Greg McDowell, also fear “too much social life” at MSU.

“I want him to get a good education,” Crowe said. “Not that he can’t get a good education at MSU. But he also wants to be a first-round pick after college. Nothing is guaranteed, but I don’t think their defensive line coach has the background for that.”

+1 for "the great pyramids" part of your comment. I love it.  Teotihuacan ain't Giza, but the pyramids are still great!

Here's what I don't understand. 7 SEC schools claim 17 national championships. But many of the entities bestowing national championships didn't exist in the years in which the schools claim them (i.e. Sagarin, Billinglsey, etc.).  Were they awarded retroactively?

Alabama (5)
1925: Football Annual, Billingsley and Helms
1926: Helms
1930: Davis Poll
1934: Dunkel, Williamson and Football Thesaurus
1941: Houlgate

Arkansas (1)
1964: FWAA and Helms

Georgia (1)
1942: Houlgate, Sagarin, Litkenhous

Ole Miss (3)
1959: Berryman, Dunkel and Sagarin
1960: Billingsley
1962: Litkenhous

Kentucky (1)
1950: Sagarin

Tennessee (4)
1938: 17 national selectors including Billingsley, Litkenhous, Sagarin
1940: Dunkel and Williamson
1950: 13 selectors including NCF, Billingsley and Dunkel
1967: Litkenhous

Texas A&M (2)
1919: Billingsley and National Championship Foundation

I agree with Bucktoast on this one.  I've been to Mexico City many, many times and its air pollution isn't as bad as what I've experienced in Tokyo or even Seoul when the "yellow dust" from China blows over.  And nothing in the world is as bad as air pollution in many Indian and Chinese cities, where you can't even see across the street.

Anyone ever been to Harbin, China (the hugest, most polluted city you've never heard of)?

And Buck is spot on about violence being confined mostly in the north and select coastal areas. As long as you don't go to Mexico City wearing designer clothing/jewelry you'll have no problem.

Mexico has some decent semi-pro American football teams, particularly in Monterrey. We also used to play Mexican high school football teams when I was in high school in Texas.

Mexico also has a national team for American football that competes in International Federation of American Football (IFAF) competitions like the IFAF World Cup. They finished second in two IFAF World cups and fourth in another.

Speaking of the IFAF World Cup, one of the QBs for the US national team at the 2011 IFAF World Cup is now part of Buckeye Nation.
