    Goddamn. This was a disappointing post.

    Probably a homer but here goes: QB - A - I think McCaffrey was the perfect guy to bring in this year. He only played QB as a senior (the two QBs ahead of him in HS both went FBS) but he was a good enough athlete to play receiver and other spots until he got his chance at QB. He is a great athlete but will need some development as a QB. Prefect guy to bring in and redshirt a year to get some separation from Martinez. RB - A - We got a JUCO guy who was a freshman All-American at Georgia Tech. We got a highly-rated guy out of New Jersey who can fly. And we got a great talent from a Georgia powerhouse who was a bit under the radar due to injuries. Not sure we could ask for much more. WR - A - Robinson is tailor-made for Frost's offense. And then we got speed. Exactly what Frost wants.

    I think you missed the part where America's academic scores have been plummeting out of First World status, especially in tech subjects like science and math, the spiraling cost of secondary education, a huge and growing disparity in wealth and opportunity, projections that millennials will be spending as much as half their income on healthcare, underscored by the fact that this will be the first generation to make less money and die earlier than their parents.

    https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/02/09/health/arizona-porn-public-health/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F I would need to do more research on it and see what these states’ claims are, but my immediate thought is that things that would indicate it’s a crisis are probably falling. Most/all violent crime has fallen over the years. It’s just talked about more in the news because we have more national news and stuff like that probably makes the news more profitable. So, what are some things that would be indicative of a public health crisis caused by porn? Here are a couple I thought of and they don’t lend creedence to the idea: I don’t think we even need to look before the 90’s, because that’s the start of when porn became a lot more accessible, but I’m fairly certain we would see the same trend, just like with most other violent crime data I’ve seen. If porn is a crisis, we should be seeing big rises in domestic violence and rape, because it’s so much easier to view porn now than it was before the internet. Feel free to chime in with other negative impacts I’m missing. One I didn’t think of is trafficking but even then it’s hard to link that to porn.

    Fact-checking the OP: None of the links in the OP are to Ocasio-Cortez' actual proposal. None of the language quoted in the OP was written by AOC or her co-author, Markey, including the "book report" being derided in this thread. Data For Progress is not affiliated with AOC, and they are not authorized to speak for her. Their work is being falsely proffered as AOC's work in a lot of places - mostly conservative echo chambers, but also by conservatives on forums across the internet. American Action Forum is yet another in a litany of conservative PACs dedicated to the maintenance of the Republican majority in Congress. They donated millions of dollars in 2012 and 2016 to defeating Democrats, and their biggest supporters are Big Pharma and fossil fuel concerns. The DocumentCloud stuff linked in the Democrat Utopia thread, and again here for good measure, is of dubious origin. It was not authored by AOC, and seems to be largely distributed by conservatives across the internet. So that's, what - four talking points building the premise for the discussion that are incorrect at best? Nice. In case anyone wanted to read the actual proposal, here you go. https://ocasio-cortez.house.gov/sites/ocasio-cortez.house.gov/files/Resolution on a Green New Deal.pdf

    I think you are trying to draw a conclusion that’s not there. Agreeing with an opinion someone has on an issue is in no way an endorsement of everything they have an opinion on. Purchasing items in direct support of a campaign platform is totally different.

    So because I agree with his sentiment about one issue, I have to agree with everything he had an opinion of? I thought you covered this in your stance about MAGA hats.

    Also, that whole Global Climate Change thing, which some prefer to ignore completely because they'll be dead before the consequences hit. That's pretty much the definition of not thinking of your grandkids.

    They do, it is why this is the best country in the world, the most freedom to do what you want, with the most technology, some of the best universities in the world, the best chance to make something of yourself even if you come from nothing. People in America have been thinking about their grandkids for 250 years.

    We started the change in 1939 because we started selling s#!t to anyone that would buy it. By 42 we were already in the war and had about 2.5 years of changing over to war production. From 39-41 we made a mint. Also, since FDR forced a lot of stuff on industry it was easier/quicker, you are right, but it was not always totally legit. Also, it is a lot easier to turn a tuna canning factory into a bullet making factory than it is to get 310 million people to make sure their paper ends up getting recycled and that they give up their cars and walk/bike to work. But regardless, change starts with each person. Do you drive a car? Do you recycle EVERYTHING that can be recycled? Do you leave lights on? Ever smoke? Ever use aquanet (I did, I had some sweet feathered looks back in the day)

    Change can be fast or slow. The entire US economy changed to war production in the first few months of 1942. It's about whether we have the will to make a change that fast or not.

    There has been a pretty big feminist shift on this issue. Apparently porn and other sex trade industries are now considered empowering for women, and blowjobs are no longer considered an act of subservience, but of control. That's certainly one way to look at it.

    Hopefully that's the case with a lot of them. I'm sure many are still being exploited. That is what should be the focus, imo. How are the actors affected? But even if the effects are very negative, it's not a public health crisis. It's something that affects a tiny part of the population and should be more heavily regulated or made illegal for that reason. I'm guessing the people saying it's a public health crisis just want porn to be bad because they think it's bad.

    I like his tape about as much as I hate Banks defensive tape. I’m hoping like hell Banks eventually gets moved to the offense. Newsom, however, I really like as a defensive lineman. Great ability to play multiple gap techniques and blow by an offensive lineman. His tape has him inside, outside, in 2, 3, or 4 point stances. He shows ability to beat his man multiple ways, and very athletic moving down the line. I think he’s a guy that can be that true multiple front defender. His instincts are really good. It’s like he knows what the lineman wants to do and just beats him there. Great leverage, bats down a lot of balls, sheds well. I also thinks he just loves playing defense, and when I watch Banks tape next to his, that really sticks out. I like Ty a lot, too, but I wouldn’t be surprised in a few years if Newsom isn’t the better player. That’s not a shot at Ty, I just think Newsom with the right training has that kind of upside. I wish through two classes we had a bit better numbers on the defensive line, but this potential pairing is very exciting.

    Front squats work the quads and your core more then back squats do. Back squats work your hammies and glutes more. IMO, I don't think one is better then the other. I think both should be done no matter what if you want to build great leg strength.

    I agree on Washington, but Frost hasn’t had a RB with more than 13 carries per game as a head coach, and it’s very rare to have a RB get 20 in any one game. So, expect opportunities for other backs, whether that be Mills or someone else.

    Held getting some recognition for his recruiting efforts: "The second-year Nebraska running backs coach on Friday was honored by Rivals.com as one of the nation's top 25 recruiters for the class of 2019. He also made the top 25 in 2018." https://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/held-honored-as-one-of-nation-s-top-recruiters-by/article_c32d227f-1001-59d5-b853-03698a30bcf7.html

    They do wear out. All bumper plates (so rubber, not metal) have a little metal ring in the center hole that the bar slides into. Every time that weight hits the floor the rubber around the metal ring compresses a very small amount. Eventually the material breaks down enough that the ring can become loose and the plate will break. Usually it breaks off with the ring and some rubber still on the bar and makes the plate look like a big donut. But it does take a lot of reps. Buying quality stuff means it takes even more reps. Likely tens of thousands before actual failure. You could just replace as needed but then you run into the problem of uneven wear so they tend to get replaced in groups.

    *shrug* it's part of the business. Even if it's silly. If you google best college football weight rooms, they all look pretty darn... pretty. I doubt they're tossing them out every year or anything.

    It was definitely different than the S&C under the Pelini administration... in which I played football players in the university intramural flag-football league... Walking on to a field and seeing the other team has Imani Cross at RB was discouraging.
