  1. Don’t sleep on Greg Schiano. He got Rutgers up and going once, he’ll do it again. And possibly next season too.
  2. To be fair, Obama was obstructed by the GOP (because of his race) by McConnell and the GOP. It wouldn't have mattered if Obama had the cure for cancer and was going to distribute to all Americans, they would have voted no because it was something Obama wanted. And I do recall there being a handful of attempts to update the tax code so that the very wealthy pay their fair share, but no GOP member will vote to raise taxes because why bite the hand that feeds?
  3. That's where establishing a winning system and pedigree come into play. If our staff can show they can develop players that perform at the next level (e.g. NFL, XFL, USFL, LFL...whatever) then you'll have kids that will be willing to ride pine because the coaches they're playing for have a proven track record. Yes, there will be some kids that always take the short picture and want/need to play right away, and that's okay. These kids come from different backgrounds with different needs and situations/concerns. Kids that take the long view, though...when our coaches start proving it on the field and in the next level then we'll have more kids stay that we'll be able to develop. First things first...this program needs to get back to a winning season, ASAP.
  4. Well...that's some good company to keep...right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Also, I can't be the only one that *STILL* sees this thread title pop up and thinks "oh s*** a former player or poster died"
  5. Ditto. The stinger was interesting, to say the least. As was Disney walking back the 'Series Finale' declaration and calling it a 'Season Finale'. I have no doubt we'll be getting a Moon Knight Season 2: Electric Boogaloo soon. Would be a great vehicle to include more of the "monster" side of the MCU...like Blade, Werewolf by Night...
  6. At least not this year...6-6, yes. Winning the B1G West? Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffttttt...
  7. These are the same mentally ill people that support the Jan 6 domestic terrorists and openly hope for violence against Biden. It’s beyond lame.
  8. This is a particularly scary story...especially when you factor in the number of right-wing extremists that have been openly talking about revolution.
  9. You do realize that the SEC (and remnants of the SWC--see Pony Excess and SMU) have been doing this for decades already, yes? Doesn't mean it's right or good for the sport that it's out in the open or happening at all--just saying this is not a new development, just one that's been exposed to the world and "legalized".
  10. For a team that prides itself on its Academic All-Americans...yeah, this is a big miss that needs to be fixed ASAMFP.
  11. Let's dump Illinois and pick up Washington
  12. What's troubling is how Trump and Putin share the same playbook (though Trump's is really more of a coloring book with Kindergarten words).
  13. (Politics and Religion Board): *clears throat loudly*
  14. I'm sure Tucker Carlson will call this whole thing a false flag operation and suggest they're just burning fuel to stay warm.
  15. I'm sure someone will spill it sooner or later.
  16. It's spineless because we have bad actors (namely Russia...) that can veto anything that comes out of it. Remove Russia from the Security Council, and things will happen in a hurry. Also, don't forget the United States has also been the bad actor on the Security Council (like under the previous administration), so to call the UN spineless and say they did nothing when the US has been the reason the UN cannot do anything on occasion in the past is somewhat hypocritical.
  17. I originally found it hard to believe that Americans during WWII would discredit or not believe that Concentration Camps existed, despite reports showing up a year or more before they were liberated. Thanks to Trump supporters I now see why.
  18. Anonymous had already announced the hacking prior to the recent atrocities...and heck, Anonymous themselves said they want this data to go towards persecuting anyone that participated in this invasion (or helped enable it). But the other thing this does is it lets parents in Russia know about their children--many of these soldiers were conscripted and parents lied to. Before media blackouts, there were stories upon stories of frantic parents trying to find out the location of their children and if they were involved in this 'exercise'. Parents were told they'd be sending their sons to training and they'd hear from them in a matter of days--for some parents, it's been months since they've heard from their children. It's difficult to remember, but not all Russians are the villain here, either. Just the ones enabling Putin, like Tucker Carlson.
  19. I'm pretty sure those soldiers will be leaving glowing reviews for their commanding officers.
  20. They should be tried and found guilty of treason. Can't believe people are so stupid to actually consider what these vermin say is legitimate.
  21. They certainly backed into this qualification. Would have preferred that we were somewhat competitive with Costa Rica, of all countries...but hey, it could be worse. We could be Italy.
  22. The leadership of Berhalter has been good so far, and it's interesting how much MLS experience he's willing to lean on too (read: I don't think it's a bad thing like some pundits believe). And teams like Costa Rica are like Texass--if they can't beat you on the field straight up, they'll beat you with politics and in the backroom to weaken you so they can beat you on the field. I wouldn't be shocked if we have one or more players have a problem getting through to play at Costa Rica, if for nothing else, as a nice f*** you for the whole cold weather ordeal. Having said that...it would take a colossal collapse to finish outside the top 3. But the USMNT has come up with bigger failures before...so...here's hoping they don't disappoint. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  23. It boggles the mind why many GOP voters support these two when they're obviously suckling at the teat of Putin and his ilk. To paraphrase the modern-day GOP on topics like Universal Health Care that Europeans are ahead of our country on...If you love Russia so much, why don't you move there?
