    Wyoming vs NMSU

    I had never heard of the Wofford Terriers. Southern Conference. Moved to FCS in 1997. Prior to that were Division II.

    Putin-Trump Meeting

    Well that would completely explain why Trump said there were many fine people on BOTH sides of a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. I give you props though for calling out his performance yesterday.

    Yeap, we get 2 Utah schools in football.

    Wyoming vs NMSU

    Most fans on the message board are predicting in the 6-7 win range. It all depends on the new qb. Rogers was a 4 year starter. If we can get decent production there, we could qualify again for a bowl. I expect the team to match up very well against the 3 MWC opponents, with 2 of those games being at home. If there is a huge drop off at qb, i could see a 4 wins season. I don't think it will be worse than that unless we have a ton of injuries. My personal prediction is 6 wins until i see the new qb in live action. The defense will be solid. Continuity in the coaching staff has really paid off, especially at defensive coordinator.

    On my post, the amazing comment was a cut and paste from the article.

    Putin-Trump Meeting

    It's refreshing to hear Trump supporters say they are disappointed with this week. I haven't seen anyone trying to run off Thomas, but i don't read every single post on this site either.

    I think the score will be in the low 20s as well. Both teams will most likely be starting new quarterbacks. We have a senior returning who has backed up Rogers his entire career, but i hear the JC transfer from California has been impressive in practice.

    Putin-Trump Meeting

    Nice write up courtesty of the network known for responsible journalism. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/07/17/trump-meets-putin-and-fallout-accomplishes-politically-impossible-helsinki-unites-gop-democrats.html Most disturbing was President Trump’s unwillingness to support his intelligence agencies in their finding of Russian meddling. For a sitting U.S. president to say publicly that he believes a foreign leader more than his own intelligence team shocked many on both sides of the aisle. Ailing Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., – a frequent Trump critic – tweeted that the president had “abased himself” before a “Russian thug.” McCain said Trump had given “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” “The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate,” McCain said. Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska called President Trump’s statements “bizarre and flat-out wrong.” The president’s ravings were too much even for outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. “Russia is not our ally,” Ryan responded. “There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals.” Republican stalwart and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich called Trump’s performance “the most serious mistake of his presidency.” Among Republicans, Trump had few defenders. Only his faithful Veep, Mike Pence, praised the summit performance, and Senator Rand Paul -- in a tweet.
  9. Both Biden and Sanders would give Trump a serious run for his money. I don't think Sanders could pull it off though. Biden with the right VP pick definitely could win.

    You might be on to something. Denmark is smaller than Phoenix with a population of 5.7M. Sweden is a whopping 9.9M, a little bigger than NYC. And the homogeneous population is also correct. I don't think a country with 325M+ people and the diversity of the US could duplicate that model. Then again, as i posted in another thread about Sweden recently, you have to admire a society with free health care, education, paid time off for both parents for birth of child, lowest income enequality, etc. They seem to have priorities straight in general, pay a little more taxes but reap the benefits. We as a society admire men like Trump who bragged about working 22 hours a day and only thinking about money, money, money (i guess saying it three times made him feel better) when asked about his previous divorces. We elect a man on the promise of destroying ACA (also known as Obamacare in red states), instead of looking to improve. We spend more money than the next 8-10 countries combined on military. I lose count of actual number but its depressing either way. And we obsess over evey nickel that goes to education, like it's somehow taking away from buying a car that isn't needed anyway. So there is something to the Denmark and Sweden models. http://nationfacts.net/sweden-facts/

    Putin-Trump Meeting

    From the evil fake news network Fox. Taking Putin against our intelligence agencies. He won't live that down. You know when the one network that absolutely refuses to say anything bad about you finally does, well, it's not good. For Republicans Congressmen speaking out, it's about time. I'm not going to waste time pasting their tweets. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/07/16/putin-eats-trumps-lunch-in-helsinki-this-is-no-way-to-win-against-russia.html For a sitting U.S. president to say publicly that he believes a foreign leader over his own intelligence team is shocking and admonishable. At a time when our democracy faces grave threats, it is deeply troubling that the president would side with the very country who attacked us.
  13. How do you know they haven't learned when we haven't even had a midterm or (obviously) presidential election? It's been whole 18 months. See previous post about last 7 presidential elections and cycles - Republican, Democrat, Democrat, Republican, Republican, Democrat, Democrat. Even if Trump does win in 2020, that would just be par for the course going back to 1992. Bush Sr. was the only one that couldn't secure a second term.

    Putin-Trump Meeting

    Bizarre. You don't have to be a Democrat to think Trump isn't worthy of the office.
  15. Plenty of people trust the media. Maybe a majority of a certain red hat wearing diehard group won't, but then again they don't represent the majority. They just voted more by a hair in the swing states. 50% of registered voters didn't even bother. The rest that did won the popular vote, and lost the election. We'll be fine. Trump will be gone soon enough, replaced by the next president. Time marches on.
