I'm sure you have your reasons, and this is your safe space. Are you "vaccine hesitant"? Can't find an appointment? Can't take a sick day from a second jab?

Let's talk through your reasons in a positive friendly way! I'm sure you have great reasons but let's help ease your concerns and kick the crap out of this covid bug right the eff out.

no shaming or being mean in this thread please

Kansas State Football / CK and special teams
« on: October 25, 2020, 11:58:51 AM »
So in the post game press conference, CK took a really dumb question from Fitz and turned it into something kinda interesting:

https://youtu.be/oRN38cGecMQ?t=442

(starts at around 7:21)

Basically he says that at NDSU they kicked everyone's ass so they didn't worry about special teams much but since here they aren't very talented and kinda suck they work extra hard on special teams. Not sure if everyone sucky does this but it seems very smart, as well as not asking Will Howard to make difficult throws/value the ball and play pretty conservative bend-but-don't break defense.

BUTLER ROLLS OVER SHORTHANDED BARTON

A radio broadcaster from Great Bend gestured to Barton County coach Steve Forbes a few minutes before the tip-off of Barton's game against Butler County.

''Steve,'' he said, ''tell me who you're not starting.''

Forbes looked puzzled for a moment, but then gave the names of two players.

Satisfied, the broadcaster took another look at his pregame notes, turned to his partner and said, ''It's easier to do it that way.''

And he had a point.

Beset by illness, injuries and suspensions, Barton County brought only seven players to El Dorado on Wednesday night. And that wasn't nearly enough bodies to keep up with Butler, which rolled to a 90-65 victory.

In winning its fourth straight game, Butler improved to 4-1 in the Jayhawk West, 17-5 overall. Barton dropped to 2-3 in the conference, 12-11 on the season.

Barton actually has eight players on its squad but faced Butler without standout guard Brandun Hughes, who didn't make the trip because of the flu. The 6-foot Hughes signed with Michigan in November and has averaged 29 points a game this season.

But without him on the court, Barton lacked both a scorer and ballhandler.

After the game's first 12 minutes, Barton had 11 turnovers, had taken only eight shots and trailed 31-8.

The Cougars finished the game with 33 turnovers and only 29 shots, making 14. Their 65 points marked their lowest scoring output since a 72-50 loss to Trinity Valley (Texas) on Nov. 25.

''I've never seen such a shot discrepancy,'' Forbes said, putting his hand to his forehead. ''They took 73 shots and we only had 29?''

Butler's last shot of the first half - a 23-foot 3-pointer by sophomore swingman Ty Rhodes - pushed the Grizzlies to a 45-22 lead.

Rhodes made 4-of-8 3-pointers and led Butler with 19 points. Freshman center Cedric McGinnis had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Butler while sophomor e point guard Terry Hankton added 16.

''We're playing some defense and putting up some points,'' Butler coach Randy Smithson said. ''I'm happy with our last four games.''

BARTON COUNTY (65): Shane Sundahl 7, Jerrod Childers 13, Jay Heidrick 5, Lionel Barnes 16, Brad Parscale 6, Gitonga Maina 10, Chris Baker 8. Totals 14-29 33-49 65.

One of my favorite things to do lately is to see what the mostly old people in my neighborhood are angry about or confused by. Keep in mind this is a very active group that's heavily moderated to stay on topic.

Folks,

I’ve been locked out of Netflix for two weeks now for some reason. :cry:

We can't get this happen, let's get it back for him! To start, I have a couple questions.

Wacks, what have you tried to do to access Netflix over the last two weeks? What sort of message do you receive when you try?

Furman University
Villanova University
College of William and Mary
Lafayette College
Montana State University
College of the Holy Cross
The University of Montana
Colgate University
Bucknell University

Bethune-Cookman University
Stony Brook University
Samford University
Elon University

The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Race in America thread

sys has been putting a lot of this kind of stuff in the college campus thread but it probably deserves its own thread.

The American middle class (predominantly white by definition) was created after World War II by way of federal programs like the VA, the FHA home programs and the G.I. Bill. This example of white welfare was one of the largest wealth-creation and intergenerational wealth-transfer programs in history. Again, African-Americans and other nonwhites were, for the most part, denied access to those opportunities. Today's extreme racial wealth gap is the most obvious result.

What economists and other social scientists describe as "the submerged state" — government programs such as mortgage interest deductions, capital gains and other tax credits and cuts, and financial subsidies for entire industries — is another example of white welfare. Whites are disproportionately overrepresented as beneficiaries of the submerged state. Moreover, the submerged state is a central means through which the racial wealth gap is maintained in so-called "post racial" "colorblind" America.

There is a complication. New research by Robb Willer, professor of sociology at  Stanford University, and Rachel Wetts, a researcher at the University of California, demonstrates that despite all the ways that government provided welfare programs to help them, white Americans are willing to cut such programs if they believe that African-Americans and other nonwhites may benefit.
