I'd leave the wild animal alone before it ends up biting you.

I'm a Captain in the USAF currently stationed in Pensacola as an Instructor Combat Systems Officer (fancy word for navigator).  Before I moved here I flew on C-130s and have over 100 combat missions logged throughout the Middle East and Central Asia.  I will be transitioning out of the military very soon.

The NFL told the Dolphins that is wouldn't get another Super Bowl unless the stadium was upgraded.  Add the fact that Miami just got suckered into a brand new stadium for the Marlins where the Orange Bowl was located (a $600K stadium that will cost over $2 billion when it's finally paid off) and you end up with a city too broke to build another new stadium.  This was the Dolphins only option.

Knee injuries are the gift that keeps on giving.  I've had 4 surgeries on my right knee since 2008 for meniscus tears from a USAF training injury.

I wish I was able to go to that game.  I was getting ready for my 1st deployment at that time.  We left in June the day after Game 7 of the Stanley Cup when Fleury blocked the last second shot to win the game.

I wish the games were sold together in one set.  I got a Steelers/Ravens game, both playoff games, and Super Bowl XLIII in the same Blu-Ray set in 2009.  Not surprised that ESPiN wouldn't do that though.  I understand that ESPiN can't include the B1G Championship game because it's owned by Fox but I could still box set the two college playoff games to save self space and reduce the price.

When SEC bias blows up in your face you have to find another way to make money.

Winston's accuser would have faced significant difficulty in any trial. She would have faced brutal cross-examination on her memory gaps, her drinking, and on the presence of her boyfriend's DNA on the night of the incident. Rape shield laws in all 50 states protect sexual assault victims from inquiry into their sexual histories, but the presence of two sets of DNA on the same night would have allowed cross examination on the details of what she did with her boyfriend.

State’s Attorney Willie Meggs has said that there were two different sets of DNA found from two males at the purported crime scene. The attorney said that the accuser didn’t really know Winston before the night of the alleged attack but likely knew the other male, who was not an FSU player. The accuser’s boyfriend refused to be interviewed by the state’s attorney, Meggs it was a “logical conclusion” that sex took place in the apartment that night that involved more than one male.

Also, I will leave this picture here.  If there is anyone with picture editing skills and free time you know what you have to do.

*Inside Jim Delany's head:  Awesome, Ohio State won the National Championship and B1G Football finally looks like a legitimate college football conference again for the first time since 2006.  I wonder if there is a comment I can make to screw this up?

Comment 22 Feb 2015

The way Title IX is implemented is a complete joke in terms of men's and women's athletic programs.  The way it is written states that men and women should have a equal opportunity to earn a scholarship, so if there are 12 men's athletic teams there should be 12 women's athletic teams.  However, universities cut the number of men's programs to match the women's programs because it makes more financial sense.  This is has really taken a toll on collegiate wrestling teams, just ask Miami University (OH).  So if a university has 12 men's programs and 10 women's programs, then cuts the number of men's programs to 10, how did that increase the the chance for a woman to get a scholarship?  The answer is it didn't, it keep it the same while decreasing the chance for a man to get a scholarship.  IMO, until Title IX is implemented correctly it shouldn't even touch freshman eligibility.
