I dont think it being in the district is that far fetched. There is an entire area in Northeast that is starting to undergo redevelopment, and amazon could have its choice of desirable land to build a campus on. They could essentially make an entire section of the city theirs. Come live in Amazon-town! 

The tech talent is extremely high here, it features three major airports nearby, and Bezos just bought a house here (the most expensive in DC of course). Throw in the fact amazon has a major footprint in Northern Virginia already (houses a significant portion of their AWS infrastructure), and it seems logical. I wouldnt say DC is the favorite, but i also dont think its crazy they are a top contender. 

Oh and theres the added benefit in being near the fed government and having an easier time wielding political influence, which is going to be important as amazon continues to expand its offerings/monopoly.

Thats fair. I read an element of justification in your comment, which i guess i wasnt there. I just think as it relates to the picture theres no gray area, which it appears we agree on.

a social relationship does not equal 'free to send dick pics'! it doesnt matter how blurry the line is, unless someone explicitly asks for or says it is ok for you to send these types of thing, it is wrong.

by any objective measure it was a great game at a great spot on the calendar. you can argue about the validity of the teams being in the playoff, but they delivered a great game. not surprised viewership was up, especially as the game got going in the second half

One thing that makes me think Tate will at least be in the conversation is Urban mentioning a couple times this year he had to fight the urge to get Tate in. He is excited enough to get Tate in the game that it crossed his mind, even knowing he'd burn a RS. To me that says a lot about how close urban thinks tate is to being the guy.

Like some have mentioned, I can see a situation where Dwayne starts, but Tate gets in as change of pace and redzone QB

Saw this thread and came to say the same thing. I put a bit in for bitcoin ethereum and litecoin just to be part of the craze (seriously every non-sports site i visit has non stop crypto headlines) but not much money at all. Just enough to have some fun with the group, as I would in vegas.

If Billy Price or Denzel Ward felt it was in their best interest to skip the bowl game, I wouldn't begrudge them that one bit. Both have done an enormous amount for the team and OSU and earned the right to skip an exhibition game for the preservation of their future. The risk is far greater than the reward for true top end prospects. I think any other player on the roster can still improve draft stock with a monster game, save maybe Hubbard.

All that said, I would guess neither sits out, both love the game too much

I think this is a different pass. The one highlighted in the article above was a clear drop and good throw. But right before half time Barrett a wide open Dixon cutting across the field from the right, and a decent throw and dixons walks in. Barrett threw it 5 yards in front of him and missed him. 

Comment 04 Dec 2017

Absolutely. QBs, even great ones, will miss some throws on down the field go routes, even to wide open WRs. But that miss to Dixon was just bad. The pick 6 and that were, in my mind, the only truly awful throws he made. He missed some others, the 3rd down toss to Baugh was ill advised in hindsight, but none of those were too egregious. Just those other two. Wasnt a great game, wasnt the horrible mess others believe, just a fairly average game. We move on, lets beat USC!

If you eliminate the conf title games, then this years big ten champ would have been wisconsin, as they were the only undefeated team in the conference. I like the idea in theory, but the conferences expanded to these bloated split divisions for the sole purpose of the conf title game.

Oh and theres no way the conferences are giving up the cash that comes with those. Its a good idea, but the way the landscape changed with a focus on these conf title games over the last 5-10 years makes it really hard to just scrap them

seems like a good move for him, they have acquired some strong talent and seem to be building something. Pay for content has to be very good to great, and Birm has usually been that, so good hire for the athletic as well
