Being able to split the bill was a lifesaver. I wouldn’t have paid $50 for it by myself because I can use my parent’s login for a lot of the channels I need for football. It’s nice not having to worry about that now though, and it’s also nice to have the app on my phone so I can watch it from anywhere.

I have had YouTube TV for about a month now and it’s a little over $50 a month. You can have up to six streams going at once so I have two buddies chip in and they each have their own profiles on my account. That cut the costs to around $16 for each of us.

I’ve yo-yo’d between 11-1 all the way to 7-5. I think my faith in Fickell has me leaning more towards 9-3/8-4 range. If this was Tubberville or Butch Jones I wouldn’t be as optimistic. I’m also interested to see how Holgerson and Carey do in their first years. I know Memphis will be tough to end the season.

Fair enough... the back 7 of the defense brings back a lot, but losing the three defensive lineman up front will hurt them the most. They’re only returning 66% of their tackles, 48% of their TFLs, and 42% of their sacks but they do return 92% of their interceptions from last year. 

I’m hoping that the combination of Fick/Freeman’s coaching will be able to fill that void in the beginning of the season. I’d be happy to get through the first 6 games at 4-2 because I only see one, possibly two losses in the back half. For me, 9-3 with the potential for a 10th win at the end of the season would be a good year. I’m hoping for 11-1 with a conference championship, but I’ll take what I can get when it comes to UC.

UC returns 14 starters and they return 89% of their passing production, 96% of their rushing production and 75% of their receiving production. The defensive linemen they lost will hurt most. I don’t expect them to have as good of a record as they had last year, but I wouldn’t brush them off either.

Since I’m assuming you’re not a subject matter expert on mood disorders I went ahead and consulted a licensed independent social worker that has a masters degree in social work and is currently a practitioner in the mental health field. I don’t want people to read your post and assume you’re right just because it’s on the internet.  I’m not a fan of arguing on internet boards but too many people have undiagnosed mental health problems to let it slide.

There’s way more to depression than just clinical depression and situational depression. I’m assuming by situational depression you meant adjustment disorder with depressive mood/stress response syndrome. Adjustment disorder with depressive mood is usually temporary and is due to difficulty coping with a life change. The attachment of depressed mood means someone is depressed as well as having difficulty adjusting. It’s generally treated with therapy but, while you can’t treat the adjustment disorder with medication, you can treat the depressive mood with medication if the person doesn’t respond to therapy/having suicidal thoughts and the episode may last for a while. Adjustment disorder can be removed once the symptoms are treated. 

Clinical depression, aka major depressive disorder, is a more long term disorder that’s can be treated with both medication and therapy. While this type of depression can be in remission, it can’t be removed.

Both of these disorders have similar symptoms but can have different causes. To simply say one can be treated with medication and the other could be caused only because of playing time is a very, very oversimplification of very complex issues.

We don’t know if James had one of these, or neither of these. But both of these are serious conditions that people should seek professional help with. I’ve been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and adjustment disorder with anxious mood. To anyone out there struggling, trust me, go talk to someone.

I believe it’s in the story that Hudson’s mom reached out to Mars but he declined to represent him because he didn’t have enough time in his schedule, but I could be wrong.

He contradicted himself. First he says he can’t speak to the specifics of the case because he doesn’t know all of the facts, and then makes a comment specifically about the case from anonymous sources from one side of the story.

Being a UC alum, I’m just going to try and enjoy the time we have with Fickell because, like our past coaches, I don’t expect him to stick around if he has a successful third year. As I read the Athletic article I was more and more surprised by how much he put Harbaugh on blast. Also, the comment section of the article is worth a read.

I plan on taking the $125.... plus the cost I’ve paid to LifeLock since the breach... plus a few hours for researching the breach, getting LifeLock, gathering documents and other info to file the claim, and the time it takes to file the claim.

Also, tons of stories. People got stabbed, tased, principal got knocked out cold breaking up a fight... parents showing up on the first day of school so that they can jump another student with their child. My two gym classes I took to graduate were lifeguard and golf and bowling. Massive food fight. It was a really fun place to attend.

My wife bought a 2016 Camry from Carvona a few months ago and we’ve enjoyed it so far.
