No kidding.  I really think they need to find a way to form other game threads for the mouthbreathers who get disappointed that real football isn't video game football.  Maybe call it the "TRUE KVLT FAN THREAD" or, "FOR REALISTS ONLY," since they're the only realistic, knowledgeable fans.  Just ask 'em.

Given what happens to running backs at Iowa, I'd be out the door, too.

Comment 22 Aug 2015

I'm just talking about what may have happened.  I don't have the numbers in front of me.

Comment 21 Aug 2015

You're right to avoid them.  It's pretty much a series of demands to fire Fickell every time another team scores more than 10 points, to fire Herman (Well, Warriner now) every time we go three and out, and a collection of keyboard commandos who can't enjoy anything, and want to say bad things about 20 year old kids who are entertaining them for the cost of tuition and having to watch commercials.

If Art Briles wants to know why Baylor doesn't play championship football, he doesn't need to look farther than himself.  When faced with issues like this, you have to take responsibility, and show yourself accountable.  You don't blame others.  When you didn't make the playoffs, the right answer was, "Well, I guess we should have beaten West Virginia," not "The committee got bought off."  When something like this happens, you have to tell the truth about why things went the way they did.

Winners are accountable for their actions.  Losers blame others.

It's certainly not impossible that they could.  I don't know enough about Auburn to judge.  I do know they were young and decent enough last year.  I also know that last year isn't this year.

ON NOES SOMEONE SAID OHIO STATE WOULD LOSE A GAME!  ANGER CIRCLE TIME! 

Seriously, who cares?  Talk's talk. Let's just get to the games

Comment 16 Aug 2015

Well, that was, you know, last year.  And this is this year.  I'm not sure what you're saying makes any sense.

*Shrugs* A very rough, conservative estimate would put me at about 38 days on 11W since joining.  If we're talking about minutes, we're talking slackers.

Comment 22 Jul 2015

Eh, I'd advise against the Mini-14.  All the flaws of the M1 Garand/ M14 rifles, plus some extra ones, plus it's in an intermediate, rather than full size, cartridge and it costs way too much.  If you want a rifle in .223 Rem, you might as well get a midrange AR-15.  Cheaper rifle, better rifle, cheaper mags, cheaper, and more, accessory options.

Comment 22 Jul 2015

That's fair enough.  I was basing my argument on the fact that the LCR's barrel is so short, you get all the recoil of .357 Mag, but none of the extra velocity, especially over something like Speer's Short Barrel 38 +P.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

Most people find them annoying (Me, included!) but a firearm with a magazine safety- a safety that prevents the firearm from fighting without a magazine inserted- might be of some help in this case.  Pull the magazine, and, even if you forget to pull the round from the chamber, the safety goes on, making it as safe as it can be.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

I think a lot of the advice depends on what kind of clothes you want to wear with it, and if you want to stick with 9mmP or go to some other cartridge, too.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

Actually, the advice for using a revolver as a backup gun comes from the assumption that you'll be in body contact with your attacker.  If jam an automatic into your attacker's body, you can push the slide back, and out of battery.  The gun will then fail to fire, since either the breech will be unlocked (and a good gun will *not* fire with an unlocked breech) or the firing pin won't be able to reach the primer in a blowback pistol.  Also, it's more likely to fail to cycle properly, even if it does fire, under those circumstances.  A revolver doesn't have these problems.

Note that this evaluation only applies to backup guns- guns you're using if things have really gone down the pipe.  There are other considerations for a primary carry piece.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

If you're looking for a revolver, I'd recommend the Ruger LCR in .38 Special.  It's lightweight, the trigger is quite good for a DAO, and fits rather nicely into a pair of jeans pockets. (Not skinny jeans, obviously.)  You can also tuck it IWB easily, or put it just about anywhere.  It's light enough you'll never notice.  There's nothing wrong with the Smith, but I can recommend the Ruger since I've carried one for two years.

I'd also recommend sticking to the .38 snubbie version.  The .357 Mag version is heavier for no real added benefit,  and the 22. LR an WMR versions don't have enough power.  The 9mm version needs moonclips, I think, so I'd skip that too.  Also, get the Speer .38 Special +P ammo that's specifically for snub-nose revolvers.  It uses a different powder to get the bullet up to speed in the short barrels.  And practice, practice practice.

The short lived NCAA Basketball game had recruiting violations as an option in one of its editions.  And NCAA Football used to have discipline problems in the game, too.  I suspect those got yanked by the NCAA  for giving people bad impressions of the sport.
