Mr. Green’s response is correct.  Many web site ad spaces are actually auctioned to marketing companies based on cookies and history of your browsing ... companies have pre-placed bids for opportunity to have their ads sent to the browser of someone who has in one of these ways indicated an interest or behavior the merchant believes indicates a likelihood to respond favorably to their ad.  So if I represented a company that sells outdoor gear for example, I will bid high enough to win space on browsers that have visited outdoor-related sites recently.

So the ads you see are not likely the same as those others see...

"Leader" in the language I learned while living in Africa many years ago...  have been a Scout leader for many of those years since.

I know Bob isn't perfect, but keep in mind that he has been eliminated three years in a row...   wait for it...  by the eventual Stanley Cup Champions.  Not a lot of shame in that.

Each weight class is seeded individually, typically by coaches vote, to account for some wrestlers having built better win-loss records against inferior opposition.  Generally speaking, with the B1G having ten of the InterMat Rankings' top nineteen teams, there's nowhere to hide in the Big Ten Tournament...  the cream will rise to the top. 

Sadly, I don't think OSU has the depth to compete with Penn State this year.

Sad to see Omar Vizquel not make it in.  I loved watching him play shortstop. 

It's a travesty that Clemens and Bonds had more votes than Omar.

The playoff remains only about who is getting the money. 

The feigned concern about the demand placed on the student athlete is all so much chaff meant for distraction.  The NCAA apparently doesn't have a significant level of concern for the academic well-being of FCS school athletes, as they let FCS schools participate in a ...  (wait for it) ...  TWENTY-FOUR team playoff!  North Dakota State, who has won seven national titles in eight years, has AVERAGED fifteen games per year since 2011.

The issue is that ESPN owns the bowls, and that FBS football doesn't give a cut of the pie to the NCAA but to the Conferences and the TV networks.

I don't know that he isn't overrated.  It wasn't a great game for him, although to be fair to him, his receivers couldn't catch.

That game reinforces how good it is to not have to cheer for Sparty but twice a year.
