Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

They are sequestered during deliberation, same as the trial I was a juror for. First thing we did was to vote on what everyone thought. We went from 5 guilty, 4 not guilty and 4 undecided to 12 not guilty over a day and a half deliberation. So they had you stay in a hotel, took away your phone and ...

I'm not saying she's not an idiot. I'm not saying she was right in what she said. I would be willing to put her words in line with Cruz and Trump as far as incitement goes. I'm questioning the legal standing in terms of an appeal because some idiot said some stupid shit about the case, while not be...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

It's taking the jury some time to come up with a verdict, usually means they don't have a consensus.

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

It's not that cut and dried. The deaths/million are close enough that it's fair to question whether the stricter restrictions were worth it. You can't just say we saved this many lives and leave it at that without factoring in the lives lost and damaged by the restrictions themselves. The deaths pe...

Re: Playoffs

1. Weber should have had a seed. 2. SIU?!? Are you kidding me? I would have gone for Murray State first.... Weber should have had a seed. It was close, Murray was the 2nd team out. SIU lost to 3 teams that tied for the MVFC title and defeated NDSU and SELU (#2 in the Southland) Murray lost to JSU a...

Re: Playoffs

JSU didn't play any OOC games this spring. Counting games from the fall is just stoopid. So much shit going on. Their win over FIU was about as impressive as either wins over RMU or Morehead. FIU was missing 24 players in that game. The Committee and poll voters are the laziest bunch of idiots on t...

They keep saying that JMU has a chip on their shoulder. But honestly the real team with a chip is Weber. They had one of the hardest SoS' and they didnt even get a seed despite being undefeated.

Re: Crypto v. Pandemic v. GameStop v. Capitalism

The irony in your post is that the government’s shotgun, unscientific pandemic response caused the failed restaurants. It had ZERO to do with “cold and unfeeling capitalism”. As the deaths grew people would have stayed away voluntarily anyway, many still are even in places where the gubmint has lif...

Who were the last 4 out? ETSU, ?
On my top-25, I put ETSU ahead of SIU. The next three would've been Austin Peay, SELU, and Samford, but ETSU/SIU both had clearly better resumes than those three IMO.
Watch the selection show again. ETSU, Murray St, Selu and Samford were the last 4 out.

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

Good take on the botched messaging by "the experts": https://twitter.com/billmaher/status/1383296276020617224 I've been saying that since the beginning. Covid was not a political entity. Listen to your Doc and follow medical advice from sources like the Mayo clinic or your health system.

I don't think Wright was thinking rationally. His instinct for flight took over and he was accidentally shot. I've seen many people run from cops, some get caught, some don't. Very few get shot.

Re: Scores 17-18 APR

Jacks were the better team. Yes they were. What happened to Zeb? Offense looked a lot better after the coach pulled him. Most of us think it was planned, to have SDSU plan against Zeb and then replace him with Miller. Bison have been lucky to win the games they did. Defense has been bad and lucky, ...
