I have schooled doctors in the past.  They are just another person, particularly family practicioners who generalize.  In particular, I recall saving a doc time studying his Merc Manual / PDR about particular sub-types of receptors related to a drug and synaptic uptake.

Never, take them as anything more (or less) than a hopefully experienced and trained person.

My 2 cents.

Wait a minute...this guys seems to be saying I'm the perfect NFL RB.  I'm slow, I'll go down or out of bounds to avoid any contact and I know I'll be the most mature RB they see since I'm in my 50s.  Looks like I'm gonna get paid here boys!!

He is from Baton Rouge...in fact his old High School is located ON THE LSU CAMPUS.  I read somewhere that part of the reason behind the IMG move was to lessen the local pressure to go to LSU.  That does not necessarily mean bad things for LSU's chances...but it can't help but be seen as a good thing for non-LSU schools.

Sure they do.  They were champions of the league that year.  Nobody is saying the '64 Browns would beat the 2016 Broncos. (Or for that matter that the SB1 & 2 Packers would.  Just that they won the league as it was then,  So in that sense they absolutely count just as much.

The ideal fit would be Titans at #1 overall and a brinks truck to carry his money.  However, I doubt the Titans are going RB at #1 overall and doubt the Cowboys do at #4 overall.  I just hope he avoids the Cleveland trainwreck.  Chicago might be a nice spot for him being relatively closer to home than NYC and with Drayton there (I think still).

I agree...would be great, but is a complete pipe dream.  Snobs would not take Okie based on academic perception (and research dollar haul), Okie might not go without OkieSt and Texas will still think they deserve a better deal than anyone else wherever they go.  It sure would be sweet to add Red River Rivalry and re-ignite the Neb-Okie rivalry in the B1G tent though.  (A man can still dream.)

Bravo on 11Wers...I thought for sure this would be a crickets thread given B1G-West recruiting.

Comment 07 Feb 2016

If I had $50mil in the bank, I'd find it pretty hard to get motivated to go back next year to let NFL maulers take a run at me and try to crush my knees, ankles and hips...let alone take my head off.

Then again, I've already had a knee replaced, need another done and probably a hip some day (only one of which has any football relationship and its over 35yrs after the fact).

I was just pointing out Napoleon's view...which is prone to his biases.

I am not a fan of division of forces when heavily outnumbered and could agree that more concentration may have made the French flanking attacks more effective.  However, those are tactical squabbles as you say, with the benefit of hindsight.

Regarding where to retreat, results are all that can be judged.  If we say in hindsight the French should have fell back to Switzerland then we have to say that in that reality, Charles should have attacked toward Sedan.

FWIW, summary of Napoleon's critique while in exile 15 years later:

From exile on Elba fifteen years later, Napoleon analyzed the Battle of Stockach and the French defeat: its cause, he concluded, lay in Jourdan's division of force. Although Jourdan had increased concentration from his dispositions at Ostrach, the French force was still over-extended. Against a more concentrated force, the Austrians could not have moved troops from the left to reinforce the right flank when Saint Cyr and Vandamme attacked from front and rear. Furthermore, Napoleon averred, Ferino's force on the French right had not been concentrated sufficiently and d'Hautpoul's cavalry assault had taken too long to materialize, giving the Austrians the upper hand. The Austrian left had halted his assault, freeing men from the southern flank to reinforce the northern one. Importantly, the Austrian line was short enough that troops could move quickly from the southern flank to the northern one. Furthermore, Napoleon argued, Jourdan had retreated north-northwest, to the Black Forest to protect Alsace. He should have retreated south, to join with André Masséna's well-positioned Army of Helvetia, where in combination the Army of Helvetia and the Army of the Danube could have combined forces to defeat the Habsburg army. With Jourdan's misguided overall strategy, Napoleon asserted, the French snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Favre, Owens, Pace, Atwater, Stabler (if they can figure out an angle to make the league look good despite the post-mortem CTE finding)  if not then Dungy for the storyline

Comment 05 Feb 2016

Partly elitist, partly because those kids are much more likely to be 1-and-done (or 2-and-done at best) and partly due to the genuine concern about a kid being able to cut it academically if they had to go Juco.

I'm not saying any of those are good reasons to frown on Juco kids...just saying that's very likely why they are frowned upon.

Comment 05 Feb 2016

It's part and parcel of a deeply-felt rivalry.  I'm sure somewhere in TSUN some poster is saying the same thing about Buckeye fans.  Embrace the hate, don't take their bate and if you don't like a thread just scroll on by.  

That's my 2 cents.

More importantly...how long before Beamer doesn't go to the sideline every Saturday afternoon out of pure habit?

I think VT will do well with Fuente as long as the Foster supporters are on-board and don't pine for Bud at the first sign of trouble.

Comment 04 Feb 2016

Nice...former AD tries to pump up their street cred "scUM education so valuable it overcomes bribes" and in the process sets the new stud recruit/player up for a whole raft of questions from journalists and investigators about his recruitment.  I'm sure that won';t be any distraction at all.  LOL

Comment 04 Feb 2016

I guess Espin considers it soft because he didn't go full "Mike Tyson" and get it as a face tat.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Comment 03 Feb 2016


I paid extra for a Kyocera Kona...and turned off sms.  Huge battery life and if it isn't important enough for a call or me to use my computer then screw it.  (No I don't ues cricket...not that there's anything wrong with that.)
