HaHa. I was just ready to post the same thing. It was a good block, but pushing a DT who's slanting away from you is the easiest OL block there is.

I love how it looks on TV, and my fingers are crossed that Dawand become all B1G, but that was an easy block for even a walk-on OL.

Objective rankings:

  •  #1: LSU clearly has the best resume.
  •  #2 & #3: OSU and Oklahoma are playing dominant football - Oklahoma has the win over Texas but I still have doubts about their defense really. I'm good with either school at #2-3.
  •  #4: Alabama: solid team. 
  • #5: Clemson - they should have lost to NC, and Sunshine is mired in a Sophomore slump. I have my doubts they could beat certain teams right now that have 1 loss - teams such as Oregon, ND, UGA etc.

I think the only thing that can keep NW in the game is if it's 40 degrees, windy and raining cats-and-dogs. If the weather is better than that, OSU rolls 52-10.

TTUN fans in CT and New England in general: I think it can be attributed to a lot of TTUN business school alumni get jobs near NYC and Boston, and a lot of New England kids who don't get accepted to the Ivy League go to TTUN as their backup school.

Two more good reasons to dislike TTUN!

I'd be curious to see what the signing bonus is for a 1st rounder picked at 10 vs. picked at 25 because I think that's what Wade might be facing in the offseason.

He could be realistically picked as high as #25 in 2020 and could be picked at #10 after being CB1 at OSU next year and enters the 2021 draft.

I don't think any of us are necessarily trying to help him. All we're doing is enjoying the service that he provides, namely his thoughts and opinions.

If you love college football and can't get enough of it, Zach's podcasts are gold.

Those numbers are a lot better than I thought they'd be from prior posts. Once the season ends, I'd like to see him start up his twitter feud with the Biebs ----that has the makings of internet gold.

Ar-Kansas is a lot like Iowa and South Carolina - big schools in power conferences with very passionate fan bases - but football programs that are mediocre at best. It's best to pity them than dislike them.

Is she cool to be around or is she a total bitch around the family?

Does your Mom like the GF?

Will it hurt your Mom if your brother throws the GF to curb tomorrow?

Just anecdotally, but once you reach a certain level of maturity and you're ready to settle down, I don't think you need to date for a certain period of time to tie the knot. Plenty of couples have gotten engaged a few months after meeting. Sometimes you just know. But you have to be emotionally ready and mature....but with people getting married later in life nowadays, the ole, we need to date for x number of years doesn't apply anymore.

I like the model portfolio you posted and throw in Vanguard Total Bond Index and you're set! But I think an argument can be made to  be 100% equities for folks under 35 yrs old who don't have a ton of money....just keep 6 months of expenses in a money market.

That's what I Iove about index funds - it's no different  whether you have $1 billion or $10,000 - put a certain % in 4 index funds and let it ride for decades.....it's SO EASY.

Vanguard - Total Stock Market Index.

Vanguard - Extended Market Index (I like a little more small & mid-cap stocks than what Total Stock Market provides).

Vanguard - Total International Index

Vanguard - Total Bond Index.

Wow. That's very alarming. While they are kids today at 18-22 years old, they are the University's future donor base----OSU historically incented alumni donations with prime football tickets which this new generation doesn't appear to be excited about.

If they don't want to go to games as students, they're going to be even less willing to go when they're 40-60 years old.

Comment 12 Sep 2019

Well said. Fees are low today because of John Bogle of Vanguard not because of the Johnson family at Fidelity. If it was up to the Johnsons, we'd still be paying 1% fees, but John Bogle changed everything, and for that I owe Vanguard my loyalty. The Johnsons are billionaires while Bogle died just a very well off man ----but he could have been a billionaire, but instead, he chose to let Vanguard be owned by the fund owners. I will forever be indebted to this man.

Every investor needs to read Bogle's books - they are life changers. I've not seen the Johnson's publish such books.

The dude who said war criminals is guaranteed to be an 18 year old punk kid trying to tick people off.....and he succeeded.

Comment 11 Sep 2019

Yea, my points were for the board in general. You specifically? I would advise you to find the highest paying job and if you're not married find the highest paid woman you can find who is frugal, hard working and honest (and if they're crazy pre-marriage - they will be 3x crazier post marriage - however, given your situation, you can't be picky ----go for the highest paid woman and hope for the best).

Pay off debt -----you are owned by the people who lent you the money. 

Make money - marry money. My Net Worth was $70k as a 34 year old bachelor - I married someone who made +$100k per annum (and is frugal and honest) ----I got a few raises over the years, and now at ~50 years old my Net Worth will hopefully be $3 million at 12/31/19 with two very expensive kids.

Online dating works - you just need to present well to land a whale ---get your fat arse in the gym---no woman I am describing will be attracted to a bum. Look for keywords like: Medical----no doctor is going to say she's in Residency----she's going to say she's in the "medical field." And is studious(sp?) and has a "professional" level degree.

You're effing welcome.

My advise:

  • Live below your means.
  • Marry someone who is frugal, hard working and trust worthy.
  • Contribute as much to your 401(k) as possible.
  • Invest in tax efficient, low cost, index funds.
  • Read the forums at bogleheads.org.
  • The first million is the hardest, the rest are much easier (particularly during a bull market) - 8% on $1.0 million, then 8% on $1.08 million, so forth and so on (although never count on 8% returns but that's approx. what the S&P has returned over the last 10-15 years.
  • Compound interest is the 8th wonder of the world.

The only position coach I see Urban wanting at USC is Hartline, and I think he would only leave for USC for the OC job which I don't think he's ready for yet.

Mickey? Absolutely, but I've wrote before that he may not want to go: he's not exactly a spring chicken anymore, USC's facilities below OSU, I believe he has 1-2 kids currently at OSU, and OSU can pay him more.

Pantoni? Absolutely - but it would probably take a big pay raise which OSU may want to match or exceed.

That sound you hear is Harbaugh throwing Patterson under the bus to try to shirk responsibility for that crappy offense of his. What a dick!

Edit: this is Harbaugh's way of sabotaging Patterson so he can make a QB change when things go south against Wisky.
