I was at a bar so i couldn't hear the commentary, but did they call it a fumble on Elliott or just that he was down before he rolled over the guy's back?  Because he most certainly was down before he went over the guy's back.  His entire left forearm and elbow were on the ground.  And by looking at the play-by-play, it looks like they called him down.

Until an undefeated team from a power conference gets left out of the playoffs for 4 other teams with a loss, I just don't see the benefit of scheduling tough OOC games.  It's more important to win all your games than it is to have a tough schedule.  Only if you lose a game will SoS matter, so why increase the chances of losing a game or two?

SEC went 7-3 in bowl games last year including 3-0 against the B1G.  You say their top teams are very good but they actually went 0-2 in BCS games.  So the middle of the SEC went 7-1.  Also, with two teams in BCS games, it pushes each subsequent SEC team into a higher bowl.

aTm was able to come in and compete because they've had 4 first round draft picks in the past two years including 3 top 10 picks.  Mizzou though, i can't really explain.

So you may not like it, and it may get hyped up a little too much, but it's not a myth that the SEC is the best football conference.

Who are the employers? The argument is the athletes should be compensated for their likeness.  If ESPN was to use their likeness, ESPN isn't all of sudden their employer.  I think you are mixing issues.

I agree the B1G is pretty good in basketball, but it's tough to call it the premier conference when we haven't won a title since 2000.

I'll go ahead and post even though i've only read half of the article so far, but your understanding of the tax rules are incorrect.  First, the charitable piece is a deduction, not a credit.  So you don't get a dollar for dollar benefit.  Second, your donation to the food pantry is 100% deductible subject to the same AGI limitations as your deduction for the donation to the school.

Not sure why this got a downvote.  This was my point a year or two ago when Texas gave rings to their players for going 9-4.

 

edit: I guess what prevents that is the actual rule that prevents it noted below.

Little late in the day for my reply, but I'm curious where you would rank Lucas and LeBron among all-time greats? Granted, LeBron's career isn't finished, but some wonder if he is the greatest ever...from any state. Nobody wonders if Lucas is possibly the best player to ever live.

I'm not detracting from your statements, but slight correction.  UConn just won two titles in four years.

Comment 09 Apr 2014

Jerry Lucas was good and all, but where is this "best in Ohio history" coming from? I believe Jason made that comment the other day too.  LeBron is still from Ohio, correct?

Was your salary negotiated between you and your company? Or was there a rule that prevented you from being paid?
