    OT: Pac 12 Network a bigger failure than you think

    "Much more to do/care about in the west other than sports. " What a fantastic statement. Please elaborate.

    BSU and UCF: Separated at Birth?

    Interesting that you would know this. I haven't looked. UCF is the dude that you need a microscope to find it

    BSU and UCF: Separated at Birth?

    Currently, they are not comparable in enrollment, academics, research, football, basketball, facilities, recruiting area, DMA, viewers, and definitely potential.

    Nevada Drops To......

    "BTW...Houston,the AAC standard bearer right now and one of only 3 undefeated teams, is way down at 15/17. " Houston can't overcome that west coast bias.

    Houston Fires Applewhite

    Renu Khator has done wonders for the school. For decades UH had very little support for athletics. It was to survive on its own. But she has provided great support. UH now has good facilities for all of its teams. They recently announced an "indoor banked track" will be installed. It will be 1 of only 10 at universities in the country https://uhcougars.com/index.aspx?path=track When Khator was hired she promised a top tier athletic program. She has repeated that promise several times. It's a new world for us.

    Houston Fires Applewhite

    Houston had a press conference this afternoon to introduce Holgorsen as its new HC. The UH president repeated the "8-4 will get you fired". She did not back off one bit. The school is providing Holgorsen with 4.5 million for Assistants. They will pay but you better not lose. He will bring at least one coach with him from WVU. Tyron Carrier, their receiver coach, is a former UH receiver and wants to come to UH. Doesn't UNLV have a Fertitta supporter?

    UNLV Research

    You might be interested in the Carnegie Listing. Sure enough, UNLV is there. http://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/lookup/srp.php?clq=%7B"basic2005_ids"%3A"15"%7D&limit=50,50&orderby=sortname&start_page=standard.php 2018 Classification Update http://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/ Congratulations. It's a big step.
  13. I believe the initial impulse for a new BE was to have a western division but SDSU was not sufficient by itself. If at least 4 MWC schools had stepped forward, it probably would have happened. That conference would be stronger than either the MWC or the AAC today.

    Computer Guys!!!!

    After looking at the error page, it appears I jumped to a conclusion because it appeared simular to a ransom wear one. The screen references usb3 which is may be a memory stick. Your idea of attempting to identify which stick is causing the problem is probably the right one. If this machine is actually running on a memory stick it could be an out-of-memory problem. That could be resolved by house cleaning. Having goofed before, I will stop.

    This is probably "Ransomware". See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ransomware_%28malware%29 Typically, if any click is made in that window, you will have to pay someone to allow your machine to work for you again. Best to immediately do a restart if something like this is displayed.
