  2. Good. I like companies that can develop miracle drugs that let us pull out of a pandemic to be incentivized to do so.
  3. Pac added Colorado early because under no circumstances did they want Baylor pushed on them if the deal for expanding to 16 had gone through. They wanted Texas and Ok, and were willing to take OSU, aTm and TTech to get them, but not Baylor so they preemptively filled that spot with Colorado. The plan was to expand to 16 if they could get Texas and Ok otherwise add Utah and go to 12. Texas bailed, so Utah got in.
  4. This make sense for travel partners and rivalries, but doesn't add new markets, recruiting beds or money to the league. I don't really see good expansion candidates monetarily for the Pac right now ( unless Texas and OU decided against SEC ). They are isolated geographically, and the nearest markets they don't own don't have suitable schools that would likely make the move.
  5. The US has boomed economically over the past 50 years, but workers have not shared equitably with the executives. I think this is where much of the angst comes from.
  6. I don't think there is anything you can do that would convince Bob or others like him to voluntarily get vaccinated. I would favor covid vaccinations being added to the required vaccinations for school admission, and vaccination passports for travel and mass transit, Businesses should be able to require vaccinations or not. Where I work, they just implemented a policy that those at the workplace who choose to certify that they are vaccinated can be maskless in the workplace, while those who are unvaccinated or will not certify that they are vaccinated are required to wear a mask whi
  7. Guessing it is just another ploy to get more money out of his followers.
  8. Wilson went to BYU because Utah had a commitment from a higher rated QB ( who turned out to be a prima dona that transferred after one year and has never been a starter ) that they apparently had promised would be their only QB recruit that cycle. Had Utah offered, Wilson would have been a Ute. I think it worked out for the best for him, as he would not have played ahead of Tyler Huntley ( 4 year starter ) and would not have had much opportunity last year at Utah to impress due to Pac's covid policies.
  9. Zach seems like a good dude, I hope his mom doesn't F it up for him.
  10. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2021/07/04/more-than-99-us-covid-deaths-involve-unvaccinated-people/7856564002/ The unvaccinated accounted for more than 99% of recent deaths from Covid in the US. I am sure this is just coincidence.
  11. I agree that it is a good thing for the kids, and not much difference in the level of students. The only bad thing I see here for the schools is that there will be a decrease in revenues, as the foreign born students would be paying a much higher tuition than the locals.
  12. USC has a few things going for it.

  14. Figures, I am flying there with the family on Wednesday.
