Re: Small plane crashes into Austin, TX office building

As far as the consumption tax, I don't know if that is the right answer or not, but I don't think there could be anything worse than what we have now, with 70k or whatever it is pages of Tax Code, several hundred billion a year in compliance costs of both individuals and businesses, well over 100k I...

I don't know - the other side of the aisle didn't acquit themselves well either back in the day over there. I seem to remember "caucuses" being set up so that people didn't have to have suffer the hardship of having people with different views chime in. Actually, that was a pretty good mi...

Re: JMU Dismisses RB Corwin Acker from Team

Is it too late for him to enroll at Liberty, and play in 2010? :popcorn: He did play pretty well there last year. :D With all the RBs we have this isn't a huge loss for the team, but I do hate it for him. Never good to see a young person squander a chance at a free education. Yep. Acker was basical...

Re: 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Thread

1st time I've watched much of any winter Olympics since around 92'? (if Calgary was in 88' and the Olympics are held every 4 years and are being held in 2010 then something doesn't add up). Problems I see. Too many events. Read an article today that back in 88' was 46 Winter Olympic events and now a...

Re: NCAA to change NC game date if Frisco gets it

Why in the world would the NCAA keep the game in Chatty on Friday, the 7th in direct TV competition against the Cotton Bowl when it can move to a location that is at least as attractive and would result in the game being moved from the 7th? Unless of course they are willing to move the game to a di...

Re: W&M loses two projected starters

UR started 14 seniors to UMass's 12. Yeah, both lost a lot of talent. 7 of those 10 UMass seniors got All CAA honors ( 1st team Ducasse, Zardas, Cruz, and Miles), 2nd team Nelson at TB (who I believe was a 1st teamer in 08') plus a couple of DLs who were 2nd and 3rd team. So technically UMass might...

Re: W&M loses two projected starters

In terms of # of starters returning Towson, Maine and UD have the most. Next grouping would be Nova and JMU Next grouping would be W&M, UNH, UMass UR has the least. Not sure where URI falls. I actually thought UMass might have lost just as much as Richmond, and UMass obviously wasn't as good as...

Re: W&M loses two projected starters

Really? Why would anyone have had W&M as a preseason #1 over nova? nova was better than W&M last year and even before this returned much more than what W&M was returning. I think W&M is going to be pretty good this year, but a preseason #1 would be very optimistic to say the least. ...

Re: How come the NCAA doesn't enforce this?

Why enforce it? What is the NCAA (or these conferences) losing? If the conferences involved don't like splitting their TV money to these schools, they can take steps to kick them out, otherwise I don't think anyone really cares. Bingo. :nod: Then why have the membership requirements for I-A if they...

Besides both being private as others have stated, Penn and Bucknell aren't counters. The Ivy will probably never be. Patriot might, but they won't be counters unless they give out 57 schollies.
