TTUN has 100,000 problems, but a win ain't one.
Urban's players are more than welcome to enter the job market instead of playing football at Ohio State. Nothing is stopping college football players from getting a paying job instead of playing college football.
Urban's players are also more than welcome to do what they can to get a job coaching college football at a top D-I school instead of playing college football, just like you, just like me. We are all eligible to put our hats in the ring for those extremely exclusive jobs.
Maybe they'll get the new Death Penalty: a one-year bowl ban and a strong lecture.
I'm always late to threads on 11W, but this seems very much like a salary dump to me. They let Bayless and Tirico go because they spent 12 trillion dollars on rights for live sports. They're making the classic silly move to dump pennies because they spent dollars.
The DWI was stupid and harmed no one, thankfully.
I do worry that you are blaming the victim with the domestic violence problem. If you review the 911 tapes, it's clear that Barrett is responding to an abusive aggressor and wants the situation resolved without violence (or press, I'm sure), but the aggressor knows that they have the power in the situation.
Remaining on staff so it doesn't look like she got her "Team Mom" job just to get her son on the team.
You like money and Starbucks, too? We should hang out.
Oops. I meant to include a link or two to the phenomenon that is not made up.
Yes, I agree. I thought that was implied, but I would like Billy to be in some sort of rehab where he gets 24/7 attention and he's not allowed to see his ex or anyone else who could cause him to cause problems.
The fallout on this will be interesting. The Hope Solo police reports are much worse, but she was never punished.
At the very, very least, Billy needs to go to a real rehab for a year and figure out his life.
One of the beautiful things about living in a country in which the arts are supported and respected is that we can understand both sides of humanity, the science and the magic. Here's an example. The reason OP heard "cell phone" is a phenomenon called "pareidolia." It's a psychological phenomenon in which we pay tribute to our lowly animal beginnings. When we were on the African plain, we would hear branches cracking. Those of us who assumed it was a panther and ran tended to survive (and pass down their genes) because they ran when there really was a panther on their heels. For better and worse, we still make patterns out of randomness. That is why we mishear song lyrics so often.
Here is a fun example. "Stairway to Heaven" played backwards is gibberish. But when someone "primes" you with suggested lyrics, you would swear that's what Robert Plant is really singing. (For additional fun, listen to a section without priming yourself, then listen again with the lyrics.)
The middle ground is the personal meaning and our personal understanding of art and the world around us. This is why we pay for high school sports and arts programs alike.
Clearly the only solution is to pack every public and private space with doubleplusgood video cameras.
One of my past creations seems appropriate in this moment:
Wow. Is that true? Five touches was his season high? I hadn't realized. I thought he was underutilized and I salute his respectful silence on the matter, but really? Five touches?
I wish he would stay to finish his degree (and to play for us for another couple years), but the young man has seemingly made the best choice for him and I join everyone else in wishing him all the best.
Seconded. Al Jazeera is a real news network and more "real" than the overwhelming majority of what we now have available to us in the US.
Dark green. Sorry, I don't know enough to tell you a Pantone color.
The digitus impudicus has been around for thousands of years and has never caused a single injury or fatality.
I will agree that the Abrams films have better special effects. But The Phantom Menace had a completely CG character and we all know what happened with that. The direction was terrible. The camera doesn't stop moving and the edits are too quick; you can't figure out what is going on. The stories were slight (in the first one) and stolen and needlessly complicated to avoid claims of theft (the second one). If there hadn't been 45 years of Trek, no one would have cared about Kirk (who is now a dirt biker who loves music from the 1970s) or Spock, who has no emotions except for he's in love with Uhura now. The main problem with the second one was that everyone in the audience knew what was going on at least 45 minutes before the characters did.
And don't get me started on the deus ex machina of NuKhan's blood.
I understand why the first film made money and the second film made a little bit of money. It's Kirk! And Spock! And Bones! But none of the previous ten movies or 700 TV episodes ever happened. And there's no time for thought or character development or big themes because something just blowed up and the camera whip-panned and Bones just said, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not an LG 4G Smartphone with dual cameras!" because he had to say it at some point and LG kicked in two million dollars for product placement.
