Its not as far fetched as it seams. If he is looking to get back to the East Coast then this would be an ideal opportunity for him. He can recruit the East and, although they are my sworn enemy, Blacksburg is a good spot dump. Its a little city feel and a gorgeous dark and depressing campus. Who cares about other sports...the football at VT can be as good as the football at Arizona Marshall quickly. And its an easier conference than the Pac whatever Conference USA. I could see where this would appeal to RR and to VT both since losers tend to attract each other. I hope it happens...what better way to stoke a rivalry. And it would be so nice to beat his candy ass down when we play again.

So is Casteel going to be Gibson's linebackers coach?

Reading between the lines, it looks like the ACC is concerned that they are not putting forth competitive teams and need an 8-team playoff to remain in the hunt.

If you look at everything Dana said, there is no reason for a meltdown about it. It seems that Howard has risen to the top and improved significantly since last year. Trickett's injury gave an opportunity for the #2 to get reps at practice and playing time in games. Crest couldn't step in because he was hurt. Howard seized the chance and made the best of it. Seems like a good thing to me. This isn't like the three QB competition post Geno. It is like last season.

I think the circumstances are much different this year than last year. Trickett was a senior with leadership qualities who was clearly the best at the position. Of course Holgorsen should name him as a starter and let him develop his leadership of the team. Howard might be ahead of the others right now in terms of knowing the offense, but he has some flaws. Crest, Sills and the Chugger could all pass him by at some point once they are comfortable in the offense. Crest's athleticism is a huge factor. Thus, I think Holgorsen will exercise patience in announcing a starter and let them all fight it out until the end of Summer camp.

This one is kind of weird. There is something more to it than his play. I wonder if he had practice issues or something. He was able to compete and seemed to do what Huggs asks his players to do on the court.

I strongly disagree about adding any Florida schools outside of the big 3. We already have a pipeline there, even more than when we played the U and USF every year. How would playing one game in Orlando every other year improve or recruiting? If anything it would be a major blow to us since now UT and OU and OSU will begin sniffing around Florida, which they DO NOT NOW. Wvu should fight tooth and nail to block any directional Florida school from being added


+1

I would be more worried about opening the Florida gate to Kansas State, Iowa State and Kansas. Nobody in Florida pays attention to those schools now. Put a Florida school in the Big 12 and they will.

The issue is never the issue, the issue is always power. There are plenty of florists who would be more than happy to serve "Gay" customers. Instead, we are focusing on the one who won't instead of the 10 who will. A much larger agenda is at play here.

It is the right to refuse service, and I would exercise it. Not on religious grounds, but on personal grounds. Religious beliefs aside, I don't support "Gay" couples.



Why would anyone care if you supports gay couples unless you're dating a guy? You're welcome to have your opinion but just know that the next generation doesn't give a ****.



BTW, you were missing the point of what I was saying to begin with. People associate the lack of support for gay rights with religion. What I was saying was that my lack of support for gay rights is not driven by my religious views.

Also, if the next generation doesn't care it is because the current generation is telling them not to.


The next generation doesn't discriminate against gays to the same degree as previous generations because they have first-hand experience being social with gay people. Their gay friends came out, so they knew they were gay and could see there was nothing to fear. They have a greater understanding of what it means when someone is gay, so they don't do things like put double quotation marks around the word gay, as if it weren't a real thing.

You don't need to be religious to be a bigot. All you need is ignorance and hate.

I see none of our liberal friends will address my Westboro Baptist church and the gay printers hypothetical. Maybe it gives them a headache when the shoe is worn by a horse of a different stripe.


Because it is kind of a no-brainer. I think that any business could refuse to print hate literature. You don't have to be gay to refuse to do it. And being gay isn't a religion, so the hypothetical differs in that respect.

A better example would be if gay printers printed promotional literature for churches, and Westboro Baptist wanted to hire them to print promotional literature that wasn't hateful towards any group. It still has the comparison problem with homosexuality not being a religion, but it is more in line with what the religious business owners are being asked to do. Why shouldn't they print it? That is their business.

The problem with this religious refusal is that nobody is asking businesses to do anything that is against their religion. Nobody is asking the caterer whose religion prohibits gay marriage to marry someone of the same sex. They are asking them to make beef or fish or a cake, which is what they do for anyone else. Simply providing the business isn't "condoning" anything, and that is just an excuse to be intolerant and judgmental. The business people are requiring other people to espouse to their religious beliefs or have service refused. If people are in favor of a free market, that isn't it.

Nice article. This resonated with me:

Leadership in anything is important for success and that is certainly evident in football. In fact, the 49 upper-classmen may be the most battled tested group I have observed here at WVU in a long, long time. Mature teams with leadership understand the ultimate goal. They know how to go about their business, and through verbal and physical example will teach the younger players. This ensures the future success of the program as all learn from those who have come before.

FWIW - I think you both released your claims against one another. There is evidence showing that you actually bought the couch and then he broke your couch, and there is evidence showing that you hadn't yet bought the couch, and that you broke his couch. A fact-finder could find either way based on the facts in your original post. Parties are allowed to forego the legal analysis and process and simply agree to resolve all of their claims against one another, which it seems like you did. It is called a "walk away," and that is what you two did, literally.

No, actually, they are not. Their Religion does not recognize this event as a "wedding."

It IS a state recognized and licensed "legal" union, but, in the eyes of the Christians, it is NOT a wedding.

The STATE can recogonize it as a "wedding", but the STATE can't FORCE a Religion to recognize it as a "wedding."

And therein lies the problem.

State "licensed" wedding versus "religious" ceremony wedding.


Bump.

Funny, no comments on this.


OK I will comment on it. I guess you didn't realize that my comment was about the Nazi hypothetical and not gay weddings before you went on your diatribe about religions and weddings and whatnot that had nothing to do with it. The next time people don't comment on a post you think is genius, you might want to double check that your head isn't wedged before you shine a light on it.


Well ... I am pretty sure you said ...

they are catering a "wedding".

And a "wedding" can have a different state licensed meaning versus a religious meaning.

My comment was "in general" and not specific to the whole "Nazi" conversation.

Don't take things so personally.


That must be what happened. I think maybe you should have just said "oops" and moved on.
