Uber unless in a city where cabs are everywhere -- Chicago or NY -- or taking from airport.  I find Uber much more convenient and often much cleaner than regular cabs.

They do recruit.  Had a friend that played there and he lived 15 miles away.  Was recruited as were many of their sports teams -- basketball was a powerhouse back in my day.

Students did/do not have to be catholic.

I look forward to seeing it.  I liked Lords of Dogtown for similar reason - behind the scenes look.  Pretty cool that Ice Cube's son gets to play him.

That was all a brilliant ploy for more exposure to win the starting job

Used this name for a while on other boards.  DaBuck as homage to Bill Swerski.  Had to add MD when signing up on a newer board (years ago) and someone already had DaBuck.  Used MD since it was state where I was living at time.  Avatar is for one of my favorite actors of the 80s.

Scripting in the media and driving profits in any business is nothing novel.  I'd have more respect for ESPN if they openly acknowledged the inherent conflict.  Conan has done several bits that cover this in mainstream media.  Hopefully the news ticker is never wrong.

You should meet my girl Siri someday.  One of the most helpful people you'll ever meet.

Most reality shows are heavily influenced to completely staged.

My high school friend was catfished in the mid-90s before all the social media, hand-helds, etc.  Was that catfishing then?  Met a girl on a chat room (remember those) and began talking to her by phone.  Said she was in LA & mailed a picture of hot 20 year old.  I remember telling him girls like that living in LA are not on chat forums late Friday & Saturday nights.  He was set to move to LA with her and then just before he left finally came through she was mid-40s, married, and had 2 kids.

To some extent.  If fans dictated moves like this Maryland would not have left the ACC and Penn State would be out of the Big Ten.  The average fan has little role in university politics.  Now the major contributors certainly have sway.  Most fans will continue to watch regardless.

I would suspect these decisions are not reactionary and are part of a long-term strategic plan.  It would look very silly for them to switch course so quickly.  I serve on a couple Boards and report to a Board.  This would call into question the ability for those leaders to lead if they brought back a decision so quick to move again.  Just my two cents.
