I sent the below to ESPN at support@espn.go.com. Won't do anything, but made me feel pretty good. Feel free to copy/paste and use.

Good Morning,

I find it despicable that Desmond Howard said the below on “Get Up” yesterday morning:

“Black student-athletes under the age of 25 don't know anything about loans. They borrow money with the intentions to never pay it back.”

The fact that Mr. Howard has not been publicly reprimanded, or given any sort of apology, is very troubling. If any white on-air personality on ESPN (or any other network) made these comments, they would undoubtedly face serious consequences, including possible termination. Please do the right thing, and address this situation.

Sincerely,

This sounds very good. We do these with ham occasionally, but pastrami is probably even better.

Yes. See username.  

If Wake wins out (not going win @Clemson, I realize), they could theoretically go to the playoff as a 1 loss team. Metrics give them a 1-2% chance of winning out, but a 75% chance of making the playoff if they do. We were historically one of the worst teams in FBS, but Dave Clawson is an awesome offensive coach, and has us in our 4th consecutive bowl (first time in school history). We're the smallest P5 school in the nation, by far. 

Basically, jump on the Deacs bandwagon!

This is quality stuff. And the last post is accurate, and still most likely.

Comment 25 Oct 2019

I like Velveeta as much as the next guy, don't get me wrong, but is there a way to make this using only "real" cheese?

Comment 21 Oct 2019

Not sure why Patterson hasn't been starting all along. Loved seeing the Tar Heels lose. Hope Wake can spoil Bud Foster Day in a couple weeks - thinking about attending. Lane Stadium is awesome.

Strike City in uptown Charlotte. Huge bowling alley/bar with all the traditions - fight song after TDs, Sloopy, We Don't Give a Damn, etc. Sometimes they'll have former players there. Cheap Miller Lite buckets is always nice too.

Gibbs was (allegedly) down to Wake and GT before committing to the Jackets. Wanted him bad for the Deacs, and figured he'd blow up this year. Think he'd be a very solid RB2 with RB1 potential for the Buckeyes.

Unless the home is very new (<5-10 years old) or you know that all major appliances/systems have been replaced, I'd consider buying a home warranty, at least until you get fully comfortable in the home. It's a nice safety net in case something goes wrong.

I was lucky that my realtor gifted me one year free as a "thank you" gift for being a referral to her from a friend. Used it twice that first year for an issue with the shower pressure and fridge.

Comment 19 Aug 2019

Didn't Haskins have a poop spring game and draw very little praise from Meyer (even several games in) last year? Methinks Day is just learning from his predecessor. Have any of our WRs been vocal in their praise for Fields?

Comment 08 Aug 2019

Pretty sure you can exclude certain types of ads through Google, but could be wrong.

Comment 06 Aug 2019

I don't think I'll ever be right about something in recruiting again. Feels like the upside down. But thanks for the update!

Comment 02 Aug 2019

I would imagine most schools are going to spend a lot of time scouting a kid before extending an offer, even if its noncommittal. I know some schools (Tennessee, cough) throw out hundreds of offers every year, but most seem to be fairly scrupulous with them. The entire act of offering a kid but telling him he can't commit seems like it would rub a lot of recruits, HS coaches, etc the wrong way and burn some bridges, but I guess that's just the world we live in.

Comment 02 Aug 2019

Certainly not saying you're wrong by any means, but why would so many power programs extend noncommittal offers? One or two, sure, but why would 10+ programs waste their time offering someone who they consider not to be a take?
