When J.C. Tretter, Green Bay's veteran center, suffered an injury, Linsley took over as a starter.

I believe Tretter was only a second-year guy when he got injured and Linsley took over as a rookie.  Hardly a veteran, but this is a minor detail anyways.  I was bummed to learn that Linsley's injury is costing him this much.  Aaron Rodgers was quoted saying that Linsley is a Pro Bowl center after his rookie debut.  That's high praise.

Insert Barf gif here featuring "Dodged a Bullet" theme including Harbaugh, Meyer, and of course Mitchell, the bullet.

Let's just hope a loss doesn't occur at Penn State.  Night game, whiteout, and I will be in attendance.  The last two games I attended?  MSU 2015, VA Tech 2014 :-(

It wasn't Urban's decision to get Weber over Harris, he wanted Harris.  Same can probably be said for Williams over Walker.

not like Harris and Green went to schools who can't help a RB at least become a starter

True, but I wouldn't compare these two.  Urban definitely went after and got Zeke without caring much about Green.  Urban also went after Harris really hard and missed.  By all accounts that I've read, Green was not a hard worker, and that wasn't the case with Harris.  Urbs wanted him bad.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Harris was Urban's #1 target for RB that year.  Weber didn't become a true focus until Harris was out of the picture.

I think what we're seeing with the success of the kids Urban gets is better development rather than better recruiting (although the recruiting is usually superior as well).

I love how the doomsdayers always make these topics and run without engaging in the discussion.  Must be no WiFi signal in their bunkers.

 [C#] can be less intimidating

Less intimidating, for sure.  But, I feel like I'm a more knowledgeable programmer because of my C++ experience.  C# anyone can do without actually learning too much.

I'd add JQuery to that list as well.

Indeed, which is really just a Javascript library to make your life easier.

If there is one thing we know about Urban and Co., it's that they will not be left out in the cold without a great player at a position of need.

Unless it's a 2014 QB/DT/TE.  Or a 2015 DT/TE.  You're right, though, I think they've learned their lesson.

That's awesome, Navy.  Wish I got a head start on it like he is doing.  I was a comp sci major with no prior programming experience short of some website template hacks.  Learning C++ is good, it will help him understand the underlying concepts for other object-oriented languages.  C# is huge in the industry, but will be cake once he learns C++.  Also, web development (Javascript, ASP.NET MVC framework, AJAX concepts) is of course huge, along with mobile development.  If I were him, I'd learn C++ then head straight into Javascript and mobile development.

You can turn most of the data tracking stuff off.  As for the updates, I don't notice those at all to be honest.  Maybe it's because I waited until the last second to convert to Windows 10?  Or because I have a more Windows 10-ready PC?  Who knows.  Windows was meant for wives, unfortunately.  Actually, since I converted from 7 to 10, my PC has been moving much quicker.  I did make it a point to turn all tracking off during conversion, though.  My wife is much happier with Windows 10 compared to Windows 8 (on her laptop), so there's always that I guess.

My wife recently starting buying the organic blue corn chips.  No, thanks.  Just don't pair nearly as well with salsa as a good white corn chip.

If anyone forks over $700 for this, let me know.  I've got lots of things for sale, including some pocket lint fresh out the dryer.
