We all know he's going to end up at nobu so don't bother.

So, if I want a bear market and my home to lose value I should vote republican?

Make sure to short the market and liquidate your real estate holdings before you cast that ballot!

Not even close

So it's far more affordable to smoke?

Only thing holding this thing together is a consistently good football team.  I don't think you can sustain BBS success without it.

I for one would be butt hurt as hell to come back from one of my sabbaticals only to find another KU poster better than myself charming the natives with his quick wit and humor.

I don't think you can restrict a transfer to a specific coach, especially a coach that isnt currently employed. I would think it would be restricted by school or conference.

If you need a reference, I can vouch for the yard dog.  He's a sweetheart and not nearly as dumb as you may think. People often mistake kindness for stupidity; it's the unfortunate way of the world. He's actually quite gifted, intellectually.

I appreciate your vote of confidence.  Job searches tend to be very discouraging. Now if you know of anyone in the DC area, you'd be my hero.

if you really want to get a job in DC, move there and then start applying for jobs.

The issue here is that I spent a lot of money going to school and racked up some impressive student loan debts.  I'm working two jobs right now to pay those bills.  Last month was a doozy with taxes, car tax, and some car repair all in the same month.  If the next few months aren't fruitful on the job search front I'm hoping I've saved enough that I can move then and pay those bills without a job.  As it is now, I couldn't move today and afford to do that. 



Wait are you not graduating in a few weeks?

Why are you only looking at DC?

Heres that rib roast, if you were on the edge of your seat about it:



More pics of the rotisserie rib roast experiment to come.

Is that a charbroil duo you have there?

Daddy's cookin' up some barbacoa pork tonight in the traditional way -- just like mi abuela does south of the border:





I respect that you have honed in on the crock and owned the crap out of it.

So is she going to come back and play or go back to Spain?

Doubt we get Florida or UK - UT, KU, ISU, and OU are all probably above us on pecking order.  I think Florida and UK were both at home last year too.  Tennessee, Arkansas, or Missouri is more in our range.

South Carolina would please me greatly

Need more @'s from shalee and Claire and anyone else engaging in twitter.  Too hard to interpret the passive aggressive vagueness of these tweets.

Method...

(4) College Athlete Market Value

At present, there is no formula to determine the fair market value of a revenue-producing college athlete in the sports of football and men's basketball.  In an attempt to experiment with such a model, we theorized that the revenue-sharing models that exist in the NFL and NBA, which have been arrived at through a collective bargaining process and with the aid of player representation, would provide a starting point on an estimation of what the value of revenue-producing college athletes in their programs.  In 2011, the NFL reached an agreement with players that they would share at least 46.5% of the revenue generated by the league, while the NBA owners agreed to a 50% revenue-sharing standard for its players.  Those standards were applied to the revenue reported by colleges' and universities' football and basketball revenues to better gauge the value of the college players that participate in these sports.

So essentially she made the following calculation: Football player's FMV=((total football revenue)(0.465)/(85)).

I'm still very skeptical about how she reached her findings (avg. player is worth 178k) and the capability of smaller FBS programs to fund an endeavor like this, when practically all teams already operate in the red.

Plus she's also completely ignoring the variables that allow NFL players to leverage for 46.5%.

Also the small problem of paying all players the same regardless of contribution.

In all seriousness... Couldn't believe I did it. Wasn't really looking to max out yesterday, just got in a groove and kept adding weight. Would like to get up to two plates by the end of the summer.

What would that be, double your body weight?

If you can bench double your body weight you have arrived in Swolieville.

Yea no doubt, seeing a 112 lb guy throw up 225 would be a :sdeek: moment for me.

Give Beasley an honorary degree, boom problem solved.

If we can't have her nobody can.

hopefully Brad gets a nice gig out of this shuffling of coaches.
