  1. "Former WR says Iowa defamed him" -ESPN Article

    If I remember correctly his roomate was busted selling drugs and then police searched their house and found more drugs. I think Koulianos plead guilty to marijuana posession and his other drug charges were dropped
  2. ATH Kalen Ballage [Arizona State Commit]

    Just curious do Kalen and 2015 CB Eric Lee have any connection? Saw that Lee has been interested in ASU as well.
  3. ATH Kalen Ballage [Arizona State Commit]

    Thanks for the clarification. Well that certainly makes for an uphill battle. This kid is a freak and I have no doubt the coaching staff will put on the full court press this weekend
  4. ATH Kalen Ballage [Arizona State Commit]

    I don't doubt he is commited now. But as long as we get him in Lincoln for a visit we have a chance. Could be wrong, but he has not visited ASU yet right?
  5. ATH Kalen Ballage [Arizona State Commit]

    He seems pretty set on playing RB in college. I wonder if our depth played a part in him commiting. It could be a placeholder, but I think he is too much of a talent for any coach to pass on. We have to sell him hard that when Ameer leaves its a wide open race for the starting job. Our facilities should speak for themselves
  6. Who is the best rag to richest CFB player?

    Different take, but I have always liked Patrick Willis' story. He and his younger siblings grew up with an alcoholic, abusive, deadbeat dad in a trailerpark. His father did not take care of any of his kids so at age 10 Patrick was working full-time in the cotton fields to support his younger siblings. When he turned 17, Patrick took his siblings and moved into his high school basketball coach's home and his coach and wife ended up raising the kids. Pretty remarkable how some of these kids go from complete poverty to being high profile millionaires
  7. Good news for us re: Obamacare/ACA

    You all may have seen this already but Dave Ramsey breaks down the math of Obamacare and explains how it doesn't work. Well worth your 10 minutes
  8. Breaking Bad

    *SPOILERS* (sorry I don't know how to make the fancy post that hides the message) The Shield still tops my "best finale" list, but this was pretty close. Nothing too unpredictable, which surprised me, yet it felt like a perfect wrap up. This series has always been very Shakespearian and for that I believe Walt's fate was inevitable. It was strangely satisfying to watch him die by his own bullet literally. I have always seen this show as a tale about hubris and ego. Walt was never truly in it for the money. He wanted to be recognized for doing something he loved (chemistry), especially after he was forced out of Gray Matter
  9. Just some friendly advice here. I enjoy the bar scene as much as everyone but my buddies and I always establish a DD for the night. If whoever is DDIng thinks they might be close to the legal limit, we always ask one of the cops downtown to do a breathalyzer just to be safe. The cops are always very nice and thankful that we err on the side of caution. It just isn't worth the risk to get a DUI, especially being a college student who is about to start his career
  10. Boston Marathon Explosions

    It was a standard transport vehicle used by police when bringing in suspects. Could also just be the arrval of additional security. But there was a man hanging on the side with a vest and automatic rifle. Van was also moving very quickly
  11. Boston Marathon Explosions

    Anybody else catch the bit about the van? After the courthouse was evacuated a police van with an armed man hanging off the side sped up to the courthouse and backed into the side door where prisoners are usually brought in. Could be nothing, but it would make sense that the police want to avoid another Jack Ruby incident or do a sweep of the courthouse before bringing the suspect in for security reasons.
  12. Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act

    A genuine fear of prions. They're probably the most terrifying thing in nature that I can think of. (The flavor and texture are gross too . . . my great aunt used to pan fry brain. Gross. Decent catfish bait, though.) CJD has got to be one of the most vicious diseases out there. Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease is similar to Alzheimers, but the brain deteriorates much faster for those wondering. It can be transmitted to humans by eating Mad Cow beef. Fortunately, it is a very, very rare disease and the USDA does a great job of monitoring beef . Still, I have wondered if a cure for Alzheimers could also help those with CJD, because it is more prevalent in other countries with fewer food safeguards
  13. Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act

    I should have made it clear that my original post was supposed to be hypothetical. I have nothing against Monsanto, but the President did make an interesting, and somewhat troubling, precedent. My dad has told me about the new "super seeds" that they believe can be produced. This would do wonders for the world. Nebraska has the benefit of being on a part of the Ogallala Aquifer that can replenish some of the water used in irrigation. States like Texas do not have that luxury and many areas are being forced back into dryland corn. That is a scary issue when you start to think about world food supply. The demand for food and grains keeps growing, while farmland is dissapearing or becoming unusable in some places. World food surplus is at a scary low level, which could become a problem if theres continued droughts and large natural disasters around the world. Food prices are also skyrocketing worldwide, putting a squeeze on undeveloped countries. 300 bushel yield seeds could make a huge dent in the world food shortage

  15. Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act

    That would be interesting to see their facilities. Off topic, but has anyone heard about the "Doomsday" seedbank in Norway? It was built on some remote island on the side of the cave. It has over 3,000,000 seeds from around the world. Its protected by blast proof doors, motion detecters, meter thick steel reinforced concrete walls, and two airlock chambers. Now thats intense! A lot of people don't realize just how valuable and important conserving seeds is
