It appears NCAA is going to try to establish Adidas as a "booster", and therefore under department responsibility, given the court testimony.  Might be effectively true in practice, but will likely require many dollars to make that stick in court.  Bring your popcorn.

On the topic of redshirts, have a look at the situation in Houston, where their Senior three-year starting QB D'Eriq King and the team's 2nd-leading receiver Keith Corbin (also a senior) will stop playing this year and take this as their redshirt year.

The team is 1-3 and headed nowhere with a defense that doesn't tackle.  Apparently UH Coach Dana Holgorsen is fine with this as a means to build up the experience level for next year.  I suppose it's an extra year to finish the degree for the players, which can't be bad if the staff is on board with it.  The article quote the QB's Dad and it sounds like the QB may not be enthusiastic about it.

So you’re asking why his telling of the story which highlights Cardale’s growth starts off with contrasting his maturity from early in the year?  Or you’d prefer that Meyer detour the story to give a token measure of criticism to another player whom you obviously disdain?  That is completely not this story.  If Meyer bothers you so much in his telling of his perspective where he was involved first hand, perhaps you should cheer for only coaches who think like you about everything.

Beast,

I pray that God who has walked with me through similar times of depression and purging will comfort you and help you grow daily into recovery.  The pain is real and it changes us.  If we let it, it helps us grow into people who are more aware and more caring for others.

That said, it still hurts.  Below are the lyrics (and a couple links) to a song which has helped me through similar pain through my many years.

Find some people in your life to help you through this valley.

I walked a mile with Pleasure, she chattered all the way.

Left me none the wiser with all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow - never a word said she.

But Ah! the things I learned from her when Sorrow walked with me.

The frost is in the valley and the mountain tops turn gray.

The promised buds all withered and the blossoms fade away.

Our loving Father whispers "All this comes from My hand....

Blessed are you when you trust what you just can't understand."

I walked a mile with Pleasure, she chattered all the way.

Leavin' me none the wiser with all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow - never a word said she.

Oh, the things I learned from her when Sorrow walked with me.

After a lifetime of working all your wealth should fade away,

Leavin' your hands all empty and your hair starts turning gray.

Remember then our Father owns both the sea and the land.

"Blessed are you when you trust what you just can't understand."

I walked a mile with Pleasure, she chattered all the way.

Leavin' me none the wiser with all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow - never a word said she.

Oh, the things I learned from her when Sorrow walked with me.

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.
