Probably done by a bunch of "script kiddies" that are trying to get out of taking their exams.  Way to go.

DDoS attacks are very difficult to prevent or stop when they are in progress.  It's equivalent to a paralytic attempting to stop a thief thousands of thieves from breaking into their house.  You can only hope that the attacker eventually relents so that your service is restored.  It's amazing how powerful these are, how easily they can be done, and how much economic damage can be caused by them.  And there really is no way to defend against it other than ISPs cutting hard lines or otherwise terminating services.

I usually see it on national news programs.  And they always pronounce it with a hard "h" sound.  If they pronounce it with a silent "h", there is a small amount of forgiveness, I suppose, but never with a hard "h".  And in print, I really think it's incorrect.  Like I said before, grammar nazi's might disagree with me, but I'm not budging.

Highlights from an historic year...

H is not a vowel, nor is it a silent consonant.  The correct way is "a historic" not "an historic".  I hate hate hate when the media do this.  And if a grammar nazi thinks I am wrong, your grammar is wrong.

Actually, this helps defensive oriented teams.  They have to play defense for 6 seconds less before forcing a shot or a turnover.  It definitely would have helped any of the Aaron Craft teams as they wouldn't have to spend as much energy defensively and have more gas for offense.

Saban has been crying about hurry up offenses for years and the NCAA does nothing (then Saban adopts a hurry up offense).  Conversely, when Urban cries about families travelling to the championship game, within days parents are receiving stipends.  So who is the NCAA listening to, again?

Comment 24 Apr 2015

Except for when Urban secures verbal commitments at said camp.  It would be the ultimate F$#% you to the whole UM program.  

It would be a sight to see an OSU booth packed full of high school kids and the UM booth completely empty.  An overhead view of this with the Big House in the picture would be epic and every kid on Urban's radar for the next 10 years is getting one in the mail.  Tell me this wouldn't be the ultimate recruiting tool for us?

Did anyone else think 9Route had returned when this thread popped back up?  I almost had a panic attack (in a good way?)

Comment 21 Apr 2015

I didn't say automatic bid.

This year showed that the committee is willing to put 1 loss teams ahead of undefeated teams if the strength of schedule and "eye test" warrant it.  After how badly FSU lost to Oregon, that practice was confirmed to have been appropriate.  If the same exact year were played again this fall, tell me that TCU or Baylor don't get the nod over FSU?  However, in an 8 team format, who is going to keep an undefeated FSU out (there would have to be 4 of them)?  A two loss division runner up?  A conference title game loser?  Notre Dame?  A group of 5 champion?  Even in the crappy ACC, an undefeated champion would still get the nod over any of those options despite it not being "automatic".  8 teams means FSU can keep its terrible schedule and get a 5/6 seed and not have to worry about it.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

I thought it was because they know that they can go undefeated and win the ACC and still get passed over in the 4 team format.  8 guarantees that when the win their joke of a conference every year, they get in no matter what.  I hope Duke or GT finally beats them next year to shut them up.

It isn't Urban Meyer's fault that he forced Aaron Hernandez to commit multiple murders.  His coach at UC clearly influenced him to win at all costs and should be in prison with them both.

Comment 17 Apr 2015

I love how people like to look at the arrest records of players under UFM at UF in a vaccuum.  If you compare them to Miami and FSU during the same time period, they are comparable.  If you compare them to prior to and after his tenure, they are comparable.  If you compare them to his record at OSU, it is not comparable.  So something tells me it's the state of Florida and/or the culture of those schools that is the issue, rather than Urban Meyer himself.

And as I said before, people are responsible for their own actions.  And I'm pretty sure the Urban did not conspire with him to commit murder, that's ridiculous.
