  1. As much as I want football - at this point, it's a wasted argument. Parents suing the B1G is going to take longer in court than the next football season coming. If they win their case against the B1G, they'll just appeal it, and it will be September 2021 by the time it comes back up. Let's be real here - if the B1G found a way to have sports and NOT be held liable (a/k/a school presidents don't want the individual schools to be liable) if something happens when they've given the thumbs up to play sports - we'd already have played games. When they cancelled
  2. Here's what I would have the Big Ten say to ALL the teams not playing football right now: Yes, it's true. We do really want you to play football, but we don't want to be liable for anything that happens. Suing us isn't going to work. We've got more money than you all do, no matter how much you pool your resources. We're gonna remember this. We never forget. All that being said - if you sign this waver that removes all legal and financial liability from us if your son/daughter gets sick and/or dies or is injured as a result of COVID-19, you can play until you
  3. It's evident there wasn't any kind of development methodology going on here. So, "Shadow, Inc.," you: Began development on this application only a few weeks ago Didn't train users on the app Didn't do any cross-platform testing (had one lady say it worked perfectly for her - probably an iOS user - while Android users couldn't do squat) Didn't do any unit testing, load testing, or ANY kind of testing. Didn't get user acceptance testing results (obviously) Didn't have adequate support staff on call to support the true go-live Didn't get it
  4. I help mentor young folks that want to get into development long term as a career. One of the first things I touch on with them is the need for proper SDLC. Well, looks like I've got another example to add to my list, along with the Trump Wakanda thing from late last year....
  5. I'm a long time Software Dev/Engineer. To hear what went down with this Iowa app....well....let's just say that the older I get, the wiser Dilbert becomes. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/03/us/politics/iowa-caucus-app.html App Used to Tabulate Votes Is Said to Have Been Inadequately Tested The app was quickly put together in the past two months and was not properly tested at a statewide scale, according to people briefed on the matter. DES MOINES — The app that the Iowa Democratic Party commissioned to tabulate and report results from the caucuses on Mo
  6. How bad must Helfrich be as a person for someone to not want him? Eeeesh..
  7. Still hoping this happens. Even some Duck fans believe that the issues he had were more the fault of Chip Kelly (had an 18 month show cause on him) : https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/pac12/2013/06/26/oregon-football-ncaa-investigation-probation/2459297/ https://fishduck.com/2017/07/in-defense-of-mark-helfrich-recruiting/ I thought that the Ducks were extremely potent when he was the head guy. Look at who they had when he was the head guy: DeAnthony "Black Mamba" Thomas Royce Freeman Marcus Mariotta Justin Herbert
  8. Bears just fired a ton of coaches, including one Mark Helfrich. That guy seems a bit down on his luck after getting fired from Oregon. Hmm....if only there was a head coach he worked with at Oregon who needs an O coordinator who is familiar with him.......
  9. Feb 22nd..... Both men's chance to shut the other one up. Wilder has one of the greatest right hands in heavyweight boxing history. Fury is game and has heart.
  10. That's the look my mom would give me if she caught me talking in church while the preacher was preaching.
  11. Some doozies from today: Rep. Mike Kelly, a Republican from Pennsylvania, said that, like the Pearl Harbor attack, today "is another date that will live in infamy." “On December 7, 1941, a horrific act happened in the United States, and it's one that President Roosevelt said, “This is a date that will live in infamy.” Today, December 18th, 2019, is another date that will live in infamy," he said. Fact Check: Republican wrongly uses Sixth Amendment to defend Trump "The Sixth Amendment guarantees the right of the defendant to face their accusers,” Loudermilk claimed. “But not on
  12. Here's my opinion on all of this (not that it matters, but I think context is getting mixed up): As always, I'll use myself as an example of this. When I was a kid, around 8 years old, I think, my older brother (the 'finger') and I (the 'bagman') got the bright idea to start a crime spree (lasted all of a day) in which we would go to one of the grocery stores on the way home, and would steal things. My brother would pick out the items we would 'lift', and would put them into my bag, and we'd go home. We got away with some Pop Tarts on the first try. Like m
  13. True that. I will admit, however - Doug Collins is a much better advocate for the president than Farmer Devin was, hahahahaha
  14. This guy says it best about the right to carry firearms: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2019/dec/09/houston-police-chief-criticises-politicians-and-nra-after-officer-death-video There's more to the 2nd amendment that people want to admit. And yes, I am a firearm owner myself.
  15. Well... 1. Because the Senate Majority leader has already stated that his goal is not to look at the case objectively (see appearance on Fox 'News' yesterday) 2. Because the House Republicans have yet to argue the facts of the case and are arguing process only. 3. Because if Senate/House Republicans were serious about their oaths, they'd be looking at this objectively and not in a partisan way.
  16. I don't even know why the House GOP is even fighting this. It's obviously going to die in the Senate trial, per Moscow Mitch. Why delay the inevitable?
  17. Yet ANOTHER roll call on an Amendment that was voted down.....again..... 23 Nos, 17 Ayes. And the Republicans yet again submit ANOTHER amendment. Trying to whack out the entire articles of Impeachment. That's like 3 or 4 times they've done that today.
  18. Sounds like he's got experience with....."the Hub...."?
  19. Because the GOPers behind the dais keep adding amendments to the original HR. They're using parliamentary rules to delay the inevitable, to say to the POTUS, "Hey I fought for you." If you want to see the actual text of the bill that they've been debating for two days now, here ya go: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/755/text?r=7&s=6 116th CONGRESS 1st Session H. RES. 755 Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the Unit
  20. Frankly, I am too. It's been "The Best Of...." from 45. Take your pick, but it's the Ukraine that will get him impeached. I'd have thought it would have been something else.
  21. During the Callahan era, when we didn't go bowling, a bunch of us guys at work would organize a Saturday where we would play NCAA Football and organized it into the annual Tard Bowl (based on the old flash animation Tardz).
  22. If a 2 loss Alabama isn't getting a sniff, then nobody else with two losses will. Also - don't believe that the Buckeyes would be in either way. The CFP committee is doing everything humanly possible to get as many SEC teams into the playoff as possible. If LSU loses, they don't drop below 4th. If Georgia loses, and either OU or Utah loses, they don't drop from 4th.
  23. Anybody want stats, here you go: https://collegefootballdata.com And for those that want to parse stats: https://api.collegefootballdata.com/api/docs/?url=/api-docs.json Develop a client for it, knock yourself out.
  24. I'm probably getting all worked up at the headline in the ESPN article. Because ESPN isn't about sensationalizing an article for clicks....
