Fruity flavors, plugs into a USB to charge, easily concealable

The front end of the people this appeals to is in their 30's now. Sure, teenagers like these features too. But the actual marketing for these products are generally as an alternative to smoking. Which they are. And which is not at all geared towards teenagers. The products might appeal to teenagers but they are not marketed that way, and that is a really really really important distinction.

I think the conference networks are becoming pretty standard in everything except the most basic of cable packages. I use Hulu with live TV and get BTN, SECN, and ACCN. My inlaws use Dish and have all of them and my parents use Xfinity and they get all the conference networks as well. So I would assume that people outside of the B1G footprint would also have BTN included in their cable just like we get ACC and SEC networks included in ours.

I read the article about quitting Juul, and that should be titled quitting nicotine. I get that its kinda popular right now to ban the vape and e-cig products but the guy was addicted to nicotine not necessarily the Juul. That one hits pretty close to home because vaping was how I quit nicotine. I don't know that I'd compare it to quitting heroin because thankfully I never dealt with that. But it was a long and very difficult process. I will say that quitting the vape at the end was not as difficult as switching from cigarettes to vape. Although quitting nicotine is a thing that you're never done doing. I haven't had any in over a year but resisting cravings is a fight I have to win every single day.

The local minor league baseball team near me does dime dog nights on tuesdays. I always regret going to that. But I'm pretty sure it works out better than that time the Indians did ten cent beer night. And if I recall correctly, in 2013 Northwestern made you buy season tickets in order to get access to Ohio State game tickets or some such nonsense. I remember they did something to try to make it more difficult for Ohio State fans to buy tickets to that game.

At this point if Quincy Avery showed up with a kid I had never heard of, I'd offer him a scholarship no questions asked.

Northwestern's black uniforms are pretty cool. I don't think its going to help though. And a blackout only works if you don't let the other teams fans buy 60% of the tickets. If every nerd wears black it will only serve to highlight just how many Ohio State fans are there and who do you think gets the emotional edge coming out of the tunnel when they see that? I'm thinking about loading up my lawn mower and heading down there late tomorrow night though if anyone would like to help. Although I don't think thats going to matter either. They could have the grass at knee height and they're still not keeping up with JK Dobbins or these receivers and they still aren't going to block Chase Young.

Totally agree on Zach Smiths podcasts. He did the personal stuff at the beginning and even that was not quite as "scorched earth" as I expected it to be. But now that he's settled in he does a fantastic job of talking college football.

We had to put down a rescue last year and it was horrible. We only had him for two years but he came from a terrible situation. When we first took him he was so terrified he wouldn't go outside or even use the stairs. But once he trusted us he was the most loving and loyal dog anyone could imagine. But he got too protective when we brought the baby home. He bit the fedex guy and we had no choice but to put him down. We still have one rescue and she too is a great dog. She also came from a really terrible situation so it took a long time for her to settle in and for a while we didn't think it was going to work out. But once she got through the tough start she has been a fantastic dog. We've had her for 7 years now. Rescue dogs might be a lot of work but they are awesome dogs if you treat them right and stick with them. And I'm convinced that they understand what you did for them.

I think we are at the end of the road for michigan. They are not a good football team. They have barely managed to crawl to 5-1 thus far by barely beating bad football teams and getting blown out by the one good team they played. Penn State this week, Notre Dame next week should put them in their place. Then they get maryland, another bye, then they have to finish with Sparty, Indiana, and us. There should be 3 more losses there, and they very well could lose to Sparty and Indiana. Best case scenario for them is 8-4 but 6-6 is not outside the realm of possibility.

I really like Pat the Cat. I think he's a really good coach at a school that is really tough to be a really good coach at. I think he could have a lot of success if  he went anywhere else and I really respect his loyalty to his school. Having said that, I want to crush the nerds on friday night and leave no survivors.

And I don't mind playing Wisconsin at noon. As I get older, I enjoy night games less and less. I don't like waiting around all day for the game to start. Wake up, get some stuff done around the house and then get right to it. Plus the early game means I can do stuff with my wife in the evening and don't have to be glued to the TV.

Jim Harbaugh was 29-21 at Stanford for .580, James Franklin was 24-15 at Vanderbilt for .640. I don't really count those because neither is particularly relevant. Both were tasked with turning around programs and they both did so but against vastly different competition. Thus trying to draw a comparison between the two doesn't yield much fruit. Harbaugh at San Diego really doesn't matter because it wasn't even an FCS school. Same with his NFL experience. If that mattered, Lovie Smith would have to be considered a good college coach too and I don't see anybody making that argument. You're really grasping at straws now. Fact is they are both middle of the pack B1G coaches. Of the two, Franklin is the only one that has actually won the B1G, so if either of them flirted with being a NC contender it would be him. 

Comment 14 Oct 2019

I'm not sure where you got your stats there, but after looking it up myself, Harbaugh was 8-11 going into this season against top 25 which would make him now 9-12. Franklin is currently 5-11. Both are bad. But Franklin is nowhere near as bad as you say. Overall Jim Harbaugh is 43-15 at michigan for a .741 win% and James Franklin is 51-21 at Penn State for a .708 win% and one B1G title.

Penn State had the #2 class in the B1G in 2015 and 2018 while michigan was 5th and 3rd respective. Michigan had it in 2016 and 2017 while Penn State was 4th and 3rd respectively, so they are pretty close there. 

Harbaugh is 1-3 in Bowls, Franklin is 2-3. 

NFL wins are totally irrelevant because its not college wins. Are you sure you aren't a michigan fan? They love that particular straw man.

So once again, the two coaches are very similar and I'm just not seeing anything that would suggest Harbaugh is better than Franklin, let alone by a significant margin.

Comment 14 Oct 2019

Thanks for finding the stats for me. Like I said, Harbaugh is bad against ranked teams. And to go a step further he is 1-9 against top ten opponents. Franklin has a worse record against the top 25 but a better record against the top ten. So again, please tell me how this makes Harbaugh any better than James Franklin. Let alone significantly better.
