I hope we beat KSU this year. KSU is the only Big 12 team I genuinely dislike. They are the most unimaginative group of smug phonies. Their fans are a bunch of immature wannabes. Their mascot looks like a Liger drawn by Napoleon Dynamite. They have like three offensive plays, two of which are quarterback left and quarterback right. The game is always dreadful to watch for one reason or another, but usually because nothing exciting happens. I get hyped for every other game each season, but am absolutely hating that I have to watch this game this weekend.

People keep saying this, but the third party candidates are no better. Stein is a physician who delves into pseudo science regularly for the sake of popularity, such as calling for a moratorium on GMO food until it is proven safe despite no science showing it is unsafe. Johnson is terribly uninformed and always looks stoned (he has pledged to stop smoking weed if he is President). I don't think either one of them is a particularly good option.


First of all I will say that Jill Stein is s loon. Now on to the point you are completely missing. The biggest reason there needs to be a viable third party is to force change. Right now pubs and dems control everything. They control all levels of government, they control the media and even who gets on the debate stage, hence no third podium Monday. There is no incentive for either party to change or to get better because they know the American voter is dumb enough to continue to vote for them.

In the 2014 mid term election a congress with a 12% approval rating had a nearly 90% re-election rate. That sounds completely insane to me. I don't think anyone believes that a third party candidate will come in a fix everything, I certainly don't but it's pretty clear that continuing to vote status quo will not fix anything. America is a great country but our government sucks right now.


The House of Representatives can be fixed by prohibiting gerrymandering. Congressmen have handpicked their voters, not the other way around. A third party candidate for President won't fix that.

I also think you are overlooking the effect that candidates have on the other candidate's positions. Third party candidates can raise issue awareness and otherwise affect the election in positive ways despite not being elected. Bernie Sanders moved certain issues up the agenda and also moved both party's nominees further to the left on certain issues because of his "movement." He forced them to fight over those voters. He isn't technically a third party candidate, but he was an Independent forever until he ran for the Democratic nomination. Others can have the same effect.

Now that we are 3-0 its likely Holgs will get renewed. Beat KSU then he only has to go 4-4 the rest of the way to finish 8-4. I don't think he gets canned at 8-4. Wins against KU and ISU should be gimmies. TTU might be close but we handled them last year. I think we are better than last year and TTU is the same on O and worse on D if that's possible. So that leaves one more win out of OSU, TX, OU, Baylor, and TCU to get us to 8-4. Heck we might even get 2 wins from that group, which would put us at 9-3.

On the other hand if we lose to KU then it starts to get sketchy for Holgs. Especially if we lose due to an obvious coaching screw up.

Of course if Skylar gets hurt it all goes south real quick and Holgs is probably done. It must suck to have your coaching future so tied to the health of a 22? year old.


Does the fact that next year he will have a starting QB who was the National Player of the Year for his high school class enter into the equation? I would expect his offense to be nearly unstoppable with what they have coming back so long as Grier doesn't get hurt.

Legal.
As long as the spike occurred before the clock expired and it was from a stopped clock from either a time out, incomplete pass or out of bounds play. If it was stopped because of a 1st down and the official is over the ball with 3 seconds or less then it cannot be a legitimate clock stopper. This I believe is so the referee can be in a position to officiate, basically for safety of the official and players alike.


Why would you spike the ball to stop the clock after a timeout, incomplete pass, or out-of-bounds play? Each of those result in a stopped clock.

This game makes me nervous, especially seeing how BYU manhandled our front 6 for the last 3 quarters. I am not looking forward to watching their QB take a snap from the shotgun, dance around for a couple of ticks then hit a hole for 5 yards, but this will happen like twenty times because WVU cannot stop it. WVU isn't built to play KSU. Somehow I think we win, but I don't think we will deserve it and it will be close.

There would be "Fire Lane Kiffin" threads before he even set foot on campus.

Yes, anyone can convert to muslim. But that article said nothing about immigration. So, thanks for proving my point.


It discusses immigration throughout the article. For instance:

The claim that in Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims is also false. The Guidelines for Permission for Permanent Residence published by the Immigration Bureau of Japan make no mention of religion. In fact, according to an article published by the Asian Quarterly, the Japanese government does not inquire about religion:

The Japanese government does not keep any statistics on the number of Muslims in Japan. Neither foreign residents nor ethnic Japanese are ever asked about their religion by official government agencies. While it is conceivable that this policy may change in the future due to official concerns about international terrorism, there has yet to be any public indication of such an effort. Introducing such a policy might lead to objections by the Japanese public that the government has no business inquiring into matters of religion, which is regarded by most Japanese as a strictly personal affair that should exist outside of the public sphere.

Trevor Noah steps on his own dick mocking the idea signs would stop terrorists

You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you’re talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, alright? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says “No Terrorists,” yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, “Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can’t. They said I can’t come in.”


I know I have said this before and nobody really listens to each other in here, but there is a very important difference between a gun free zone and this guy's sign. A gun free zone actually makes it a crime to possess a gun in an area. Thus, the police can arrest someone before they actually brandish the gun, and prosecutors have an additional charge to increase the amount of time someone will be segregated from society. This guy's sign does neither. Nobody believes that putting a sign up will actually stop someone who is intent on shooting school children from attempting to do it. That is a straw man made up by the right in order to avoid arguing whether the policy actually works. I am not arguing the merits of whether the gun free zones provide any benefit. I am just saying that distorting the other side's reasoning doesn't advance the ball.

Here is an interesting article regarding the policy you appear to be advocating.

The Effectiveness of Ethnic Profiling to Combat Terrorism

In both his professional capacities, Pomerantz has worked with Israeli law enforcement. (JINSA brings together Israeli and American police for brainstorming.) Focusing on an entire community instead of individuals gets it backwards, he said.

“If I was looking at gathering intelligence on the threat of terrorism, would I be looking at that community more than others? You bet,” Pomerantz said, referring to Muslims. “But treating an individual based solely on their ethnicity is another issue altogether.”

Gathering intelligence on ethnic communities where terrorists might proliferate means cultivating sources within that community, according to U.S. law enforcement officials who have tracked terrorism in recent years. That means establishing trust with community and religious leaders.

Identifying an entire community as suspect, Trump’s preferred method, would likely crush any inclination toward cooperation.

So, the people you're referencing must be the two other officers involved? If not, you have 2nd hand information, not 1st. Methinks it is you who does not understand the phrase.

"White savior complex"? What does that even mean? If being upset that a black kid was killed when a white cop was trying not to kill him...I guess?





Why does he bring up race? It has nothing to do with anything.

Like I said, there is more to the story, so **** being left out is kind of the point. You seem to be missing that.


Well, unless they have first hand knowledge that the gun was loaded, what can they say that proves he put the other officers at risk? When you have people telling two different versions of an event, you look to the objective evidence to determine which story is more likely. The fact that the gun was not loaded corraborates the fired officer's story. If it is true that he had better training than the other officers because of his military service, which also seems plausible to me, then better training for the other police officers would have prevented this killing. Instead, they fire the guy who handled the situation perfectly and leave the lesser-trained officers on the street while promoting a culture that makes situations like this less safe for everyone.
