  1. also anyone who thinks Fords comments are in any way out of the ordinary clearly has not watched much sports. this is standard post game interview stuff that most if not all coaches say after every game. they all say things that went well and things that went poorly. it would be super weird if they didn't have any critiques after the game, even in a win. there is always room for improvement and critique. maybe some people are really sensitive to constructive feedback but athletes can't be. they are competitive and want to be the best.
  2. I didn't read it initially but scrolled up after this. absolutely wild. where does he come up with this shite? the team has moved on. everyone else should too.
  3. all people deserve a basic modicum of respect as humans. old people don't deserve any more or any less. as for old guy.......... he honestly scared me with some of the unhinged drivel he posted about me a couple years ago to the point where I don't feel comfortable on this board anymore. that's OK, though, this is the internet and I don't get to say who gets to post Having said that I feel he is perfectly capable of defending himself (I mean, look at those credentials!) and am not sure why people are white knighting for him.
  4. I've been here a long time but missed this one. can we get the backstory??
  5. FYI I think you're responding to @RUBillsFannot me
  6. I get this and am not saying otherwise - just trying to get Taj to understand not all of the small NIL deals are free product. Seems like he understands and is just leaving it out to make a point.
  7. 05 didn't say Fred got free pickles; he said in a deal he (05) brokered, the pay was gift cards. Completely different situation Lots of deals will be paid in free product. Lots will be paid in cash. We don't know the terms of Fred's deal but you could probably DM Two Men and a Garden since for some reason you are so interested in this topic. Re the bold part of your post... How does any company gage whether an advertising campaign is effective? Look at the time the ad was run and sales before and after... You are making this way more complicated than it needs to be
  8. Confirmed (though i'm probably a few years past "young")
  9. I'm surprised they reject this. My little brother went to LOYNO
  10. Having followed KenPom for a long time I remember a blog post of his that explains his thinking on home court advantage. He broke it down in a two-part post. If you are a subscriber to his site: How to measure site-specific home-court advantage, part one | The kenpom.com blog How to measure site-specific home-court advantage, part two | The kenpom.com blog His blog is actually pretty interesting (though not very active). He also has a lot of posts with Majerus mentions, including dedicated posts about how great of a coach he was: rick majerus | Search Results | The kenpom.com blog
  11. Agree they would be going from a mascot that's mid at best to a top tier below only billikens and other unique mascots only a single place can claim per the Official Power Rankings of Mascot Categories. Like I get that Colonials fits with GW history but the mascot itself is not that cool. Hippos and a story about a drunk university president? It's a yes from me.
  12. I struggle with this. I feel like I need a couple additional categories but I can't figure out what they would be. Maybe A) inanimate objects (boaty mcboatface, spurs) B ) vibes/ideas (orange) C) weather events/geographical features (crimson tide, hurricanes, rockies) C is between 3 and 4 for me, A and B are sort of wildcards highly dependent on specific cases. Boaty mcboatface would be incredible. Spurs... Meh.
  13. This definitely seems silly and unnecessary. Who was asking for this? Having said that I hope they use this as an opportunity to come up with something really rad. Here are my definitive power rankings of types of mascots, GW please take notice: 1. Billikens 2. Other imaginary creatures or unique mascots with history, non-human (e.g. Jayhawk) 3. Uncommon animals (e.g. Spiders, golden retrievers, kangaroos) 4. Cool humans (e.g. Storm chaser) 5. Boring humans (e.g. Colonials) 6. The Same Animal Mascots Every Team Has (wildcats, bulldogs, rams) 7. Literal slurs ... There's a lot of room for improvement for them to move up in Rgbilliken's power rankings. The best they could do would be to become Billikens. But if I were them I'd settle for a cooler human mascot or an uncommon animal.
  14. We got the hot salsa and the spicy dill pickles, plus a DIY pickle seasoning. Haven't pickled anything yet--plan to use that on some peppers we are growing in our garden. But I really liked the salsa and the pickles. Both live up to the name of actually being spicy, which is great and hard to find at the grocery store imo. The salsa has some sweetness to it to cut the spice. I'm in the Kansas City metro and was thrilled to find Two Men and a Garden was sold at my local farmers market last weekend, so I've picked up more stuff in the time since my original order, which I had placed online.
