  1. The New Division 1-A

    I agree that it would not be good for the PAC to have another power conference in their territory, but I truly believe the current PAC egos will not let them add another mouth to feed in CA. If expansion is inevitable, then I think they would look to the schools I suggested to get a footprint in new western states.
  2. The New Division 1-A

    When people across the nation think PAC, they think CA. The PAC owns CA. Your location is not a big enough net benefit when they already own the state. I could see the PAC entertaining UNLV, UNM, and Hawaii. New states they don't already have a school in, but still maintaining their west coast footprint. The P5 jump for SDSU is if the Big 12 decides to look west for expansion. The problem is that the the Big 12 needs to decide its identity. Does it want to be the P5 conference that scales the length of the USA, or do they stick with a more regional approach and keep it east of the Rockies to not make viewing difficult on east coast TV viewers.
  3. The New Division 1-A

    So just because a SD university isn't in the PAC, somehow that means SD isn't already under the P5 control? UCLA and USC own the entire Southern CA market, and they will do everything they can to make sure they don't have to feed another mouth in the PAC in their hood. It's either Big 12 or status quo for you guys unfortunately. The wildcard for any west coast expansion in the PAC could possibly be UNLV, but they would have to really elevate both their academics and sports tremendously. And I hold no delusions of grandeur about Nevada, we will never make P5 status.
  4. The New Division 1-A

    It's much easier for the newly formed D1-A conference to kick 1 program to the curb than go through the headache of adding 15 more. The remaining 64 already own a majority of TV households across the nation and are not going to give up their piece of the pie. USC and UCLA already own the entire Southern CA market, they will never vote to graduate SDSU from the kids table to the adults table with them. I'm sorry guys, but the best thing we can all do is be the best of the rest and go wherever the wind takes us unfortunately.
  5. America's nightlife hours are the worst!

    Growing up in NV my entire life and having many many nights where I finally called it a night once the sun came up, this has only been an issue when I partied elsewhere. So really, the 49 other states need to get their sh*t together and give the people what they want.
  6. Nevada RB James Butler Leaving for Iowa

    I feel he knows that being the big dog at Nevada doesn't really mean much to his chances for getting drafted. Even if he's #2 at Iowa, if he can get decent runs and show great blocking then his stock can rise faster in the B1G.
  7. Nevada RB James Butler Leaving for Iowa

    Very bad news for the team on offense, but this is the best choice for Butler. He shouldn't have to waste his last year of eligibility on what will be a brand new team starting from scratch. Also very impressive that he graduated in only 3 years.
  8. MWC 2024

    The best thing MWC could do is drop 1 from each side and get to only 10 full members. SJSU is the shoe-in for the West, and most likely Wyoming for the Mountain.
  9. OT: Game of Thrones Season 7

    My anus is prepared... take me GoT.
  10. How About Medicaid For All?

    Yes, let's put our eggs in a basket that does everything in their power to NOT pay for services rendered. Literally $0.11 for every $1 charged when I worked for one of the top 3 healthcare providers in Northern Nevada, and chances are it has gotten worse. You think Hospital charges are expensive now, watch them jump triple-fold when they have to recoup it from private insurance who will pass it onto customers.
  11. NV Coal free

    I'm a fan of renewable energy, especially in Nevada since we have a lot of empty land. But what's funny is that this design attracts a lot of bugs to the light which in turn attracts birds to eat the bugs. The bird flies in between the silo and a shit ton of mirrors pointing light at it gets vaporized. Wind turbine blades are also taking out their fair share of birds too. Not to mention the poor desert tortoises whose path is getting blocked these projects.
  12. Early odds to win the MWC

    Brand new first time head coach and supporting staff, new scheme on both sides of the ball, and we still have better odds than the Rebs. #flagship
  13. I studied abroad in Bilbao for 6 weeks back in college, and also had a one-night trip to San Sebastián during it. I'd go with your thought of flying to Bilbao and driving back through San Sebastián because that's a lot of driving for two days if you did it both ways. Visit the Guggenheim, it's really cool. San Sebastián is a beautiful town with an huge beach so hopefully it's warm when you are going there to take advantage of it. As mentioned the old town part of the town is filled with a ton of cool bars and nightlife. A couple tips (some may have been mentioned already): - Watch your drinks because another guy studying abroad with me got roofied when we went to San Sebastián. - On Sunday's a majority of everything closes for the day except for bars and restaurants. Even their version of Walmart closes on Sundays (at least it did in Bilbao). - You can get pulled over if you get caught driving in the left lane for too long. That lane is meant only for passing. - Spaniards love to party hard into the night and watch the sunrise. - I'm not sure if this will be as frequent up north as it was in the center of the country, but be on the look out for old castles in the country sides. We also did a trip down south to Salamanca, then to Seville, then to Madrid, and then back to Bilbao.
  14. ESPN is laying off 100 employees today

    I'm a retard, I just remembered Amazon secured the TNF deal for the upcoming season.
