    No thanks necessary, my friend. It was my choice, and I'd do it all over again if I could. I come from a Navy family. My wife also served, my daughter is currently on active duty (16 years of service) and my youngest son served also. Oh and my son-in-law is also on active duty (18 years of service). Never knew the Navy had close ties to Notre Dame until this morning. You learn something new every day, right?

    Okay, okay. You've all had your fun. Both stadiums are built into hill sides. I would think it's a given that Reitz has a MUCH superior facility and now you've proved it. North Knox is still a cool place to watch a game from on the home side. It's high above the field and you can see all of the plays developing. Geez I've been to small college games that didn't have as nice of field as Reitz High School. Money, money, money.

    Good luck to all of the NLC teams tonight. I started a new career and have been too busy to post much this year. We got a tough draw for round 1, but you never know what might happen when those lights come on. Also sharing something I saw Chuck Freeby share on Twitter this morning that I feel a lot of people take for granted.

    In the Tom Allen era, tomorrow's game is a big one. Have the Hoosier's stepped up? IU has two really good QB's and I heard that Penix is a game time decision. Either way, the defense has got to step up. If Nebraska is held under 17 points, IU wins and gets to bowl eligibility.

    No. Absolutely not. Kelly has put a better product on the field than Meyer (the last couple of years) has despite higher academic standards to get into the university. The only thing that separates Meyer from Kelly is the quality of recruits, due mainly as a result of Notre Dame's admission requirements for it's athletes. In fact, if Kelly jumped ship to Ohio State, I think people in Ohio would forget who Meyer was. People forget how great of a coach Kelly is. He's coaching at a University that most coaches run from. In order to win championships, you have to have access to the best recruits in the country. Notre Dame is at a disadvantage there. What Kelly has done is nothing less than remarkable. It would be fun to see what Kelly could do at an Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia, USC, Texas, or Florida. But it won't happen. He's Notre Dame through and through. He's catholic. He's a long time fan of the University. And he upholds and respects Notre Dame's high standard for it's athletes, acedemics, and playing by the rules. Urban Meyer's better days are behind him. He's in one of the hot bed recruiting states in the country and struggled to dominate like he should have. Failed to make the playoffs last year (Notre Dame was better despite Kirk Herbstreits biased opinion), and was humiliated by Clemson the last time they made the final four. But somehow no one ever brings up that embarrassing loss (way more embarrassing than ND's loss last year). Anyone who thinks otherwise regarding Meyer need look no further than the success Ryan Day is having this year. Ohio State is the best team in the country this year IMO because Day is the head coach and Meyer is not. I have nothing against Meyer (other than ruining Rod Smith's college career). He's just not the same coach he once was. If Notre Dame let go of Kelly for Meyer, I'd have a heart attack.

    Have to agree with you on that. Defacing beautiful football fields with those ugly soccer lines is a horrible practice. I can almost guarantee NK has an advantage over the Reitz Bowl in the lighting department as well. My grandma's 78 Buick has brighter lights than the NW end of the Bowl.

    Thank you for the explanation, Bobref. Great story! After 20 years in the Navy I totally understand what honor is all about and can salute the grand dame for keeping the honor all these years. Never knew that story about Notre Dame. Thanks for sharing. The Navy is all about: honor, courage, and commitment. Notice that honor, is the very first thing. But Navy STILL will never beat the Irish. LOL

    Regardless of the outcome, these cases will generate a firestorm of controversy. Should be a lot of fun to watch. http://www.dri.org/docs/default-source/webdocs/the-voice/2019/voice_10_23_19.pdf?sfvrsn=2 Supreme Court Will Render Landmark Decisions Regarding LGBTQ Protection Under Title VII By Chelsea E. Thompson This fall, the U.S. Supreme Court heard three employment cases that collectively ask: Does Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employment discrimination “because of…sex,” encompass discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity? The legal landscape surrounding this question is complex, with state statutes, municipal ordinances, circuit court decisions, and federal policy overlapping and conflicting. Thus, the Supreme Court’s decision could signal sweeping change in employment, housing, credit, and other areas subject to discrimination prohibitions. Cases Before the Supreme Court On October 8, 2019, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding Title VII employment discrimination protections in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, Zarda v. Altitude Express, Inc., and Equal Employment Opportunity Comm’ v. R.G. &. G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. Bostock and Zarda deal with sexual orientation, which GLAAD, a nongovernmental media-monitoring organization founded by LGBTQ individuals in the media, defines as “an individual’s enduring physical, romantic and/or emotional attraction to members of the same and/or opposite sex.” Harris addresses gender identity, which GLAAD defines as “a person’s internal, deeply held sense of their gender.” According to Gallup, 4.5 percent of the U.S. population identifies as LGBTQ in 2019, meaning that these cases could provide Title VII protection to over 11 million individuals. A Divided Federal Government The Supreme Court must evaluate Title VII while navigating the complex—and often contradictory—legal landscape regarding LGBTQ employment discrimination. Perhaps the best demonstration of this contradiction is in the federal government. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) held that Title VII protected gender identity (2012) and sexual orientation (2015) as subsets of “sex” and began administering claims on those grounds. In 2018 alone, the EEOC received 1,811 sexual orientation/gender identity discrimination cases (double those in 2013) and resolved 2,101 such cases with awards totaling $6.1 million. Thus, the EEOC not only recognizes LGBTQ protection under Title VII but is increasing enforcement. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), on the other hand, submitted an amicus curiae brief and argued before the Supreme Court on behalf of employers. Its position, in part, is that the ordinary definition of “sex” does not include sexual orientation or gender identity, and Congress—not the Supreme Court—should clarify the scope of Title VII. As a result, two federal agencies have taken diametrically opposed positions, underscoring the need for Supreme Court intervention. The Recent Federal Circuit Court Split The federal circuit courts are equally divided on the issue. Historically, cases held that Title VII did provide protection based on an individual’s sexual orientation. Scrutiny of this case law intensified in 2015, due, in part, to the Obergefell v. Hodges decision recognizing same-sex marriage and the EEOC’s recognition that Title VII applies to sexual orientation and gender identity. Thus, a circuit split was born: The Second Circuit (Zarda), Sixth Circuit (Smith v. City of Salem), and Seventh Circuit (Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana) held that sexual orientation and/or gender identity falls within Title VII protection; and The Fifth Circuit (Wittmer v. Phillips 66), Tenth Circuit (Etsitty v. Utah Transit Authority), and Eleventh Circuit (Evans v. Georgia Regional Hospital and Bostock) found that sexual orientation and/or gender identity do not. Because of these decisions, the Supreme Court faces a nearly even, though still developing, circuit split regarding Title VII’s protection against employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. A Patchwork of State and Local Antidiscrimination Laws Given the uncertainty surrounding Title VII’s protections for LGBTQ individuals, some states have legislatively enacted statutes to incorporate protections at the state level. According to the Human Rights Campaign and the Movement Advancement Project, the patchwork consists of the following: •Twenty-one states, two territories, and Washington, DC, prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity; •One state prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation; •Two states interpret existing statutes on sex discrimination to include sexual orientation and/or gender identity; •Seven states prohibit discrimination against public employees based on both classifications; and •Four states prohibit discrimination against public employees based on sexual orientation. The states are therefore evenly split on the issue. Currently, 26 states and three territories have no state protections against LGBTQ employment discrimination, leaving these employees to rely principally on Title VII. This data raises two important caveats. First, the Supreme Court’s decisions will affect state-level antidiscrimination laws to the extent that they rely on the EEOC for investigation and enforcement. If the Supreme Court finds that Title VII does not cover gender identity or sexual orientation, the EEOC could no longer assist the states. Second, municipal and county ordinances may offer protection where no statewide law exists. According to the Movement Advancement Project, roughly half the states have at least one city or county with its own nondiscrimination ordinance. These ordinances, however, have a varying impact due to population density. For example, in West Virginia, a dozen cities have such ordinances, but those ordinances encompass only 12 percent of the state’s population. Collectively, federal Title VII cases, state statutes, and municipal or county ordinances create a complicated patchwork of employment discrimination protection for LGBTQ Americans, with geography being a determining factor. Conclusion: The Stage Is Set for Change This term, the Supreme Court will evaluate the piecemeal protections currently in place and decide whether discrimination against an employee because of sexual orientation or gender identity constitutes prohibited employment discrimination “because of…sex” within the meaning of Title VII. It remains to be seen how Bostock, Zarda, and Harris will change our legal and social landscape. It is certain, though, that these landmark decisions will undoubtedly reverberate well beyond employment law.

    Best was our 2000 championship team (AC) that should have lost in the sectionals to Southern Wells who went on to win the 2001 championship. The game was pretty much over, but SW wanted to rub it in for slaying the proverbial giant and fumbled. AC got into field goal range and hit a game winner to move on their historic run. The 2004 AC Sectional championship team was a longshot. They were once again pitted against SW who had whipped them by around 40 in the regular season and upset them. I always say it was because of the Jeff and Joel magic (former WZBD radio announcers during those late 90s to early 2000s glory days) came back to do that game after not doing it for a couple years.

    Not sure if any on this thread are old enough to remember, but Washington had a long and storied tradition under Coach Springer. I believe they won two state championships, during his tenure. I remember seeing a SS game at Washington in 84 that may have been one of the coldest games I was ever at. Washington had a history of producing athletes, McGinnis, Downing, Keller, etc., come to mind right of the top of my head. Many of those athletes found their way to Ben Davis when IPS shut Washington down in 1995.

    Federal Prosecutors Are Punishing Actor Lori Loughlin for Exercising Her Right To Defend Herself: https://reason.com/2019/10/24/federal-prosecutors-are-punishing-actor-lori-loughlin-for-exercising-her-right-to-defend-herself/ Plea deals aren’t about mercy these days. They’re about intimidating defendants into giving up the right to a trial. Prosecutors are only now insisting on holding the defendants "fully accountable" because these parents are insisting on exercising their constitutional right to a fair trial. Loughlin and the other defendants would not have received these additional charges if they'd accepted plea deals. One of the parents told the judge Monday that the Justice Department told them it would not seek any further punishment if the parent accepted the deal. This behavior by federal prosecutors is both common and a frustrating subversion of the criminal justice process. Despite our constitutional right to a trial, a full 97 percent of all criminal cases are resolved with plea deals, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL). And when you look at what's happening with Loughlin, it's easy to see why. Actor Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty to mail fraud and was sentenced to 14 days in prison, a year of supervised release, 250 hours of community service, and a $30,000 fine. By adding charges against Loughlin (and other parents) of conspiracy to commit bribery and money laundering, prosecutors are adding months and even years of additional prison time in the event the parents are convicted. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts boasts that these new charges carry prison sentences of up to 25 years. There is absolutely no way any of these people will receive sentences that harsh, but it's abundantly clear that the prosecutors want to punish them not just for the offenses they are alleged to have committed, but also for insisting on going to trial. What's more, the new indictments include asset forfeiture requests should the defendants be convicted. The NACDL doesn't publicly comment on specific cases, but last year the organization published a report about this trend, which it and other criminal justice reform groups have long called "the Trial Penalty." The NACDL report warns that Americans are essentially losing their Sixth Amendment right to a trial because of the massive charging disparity between the offenses prosecutors offer in a plea deal and the offenses they take to trial. The report notes that "the mere decision to charge triggers a domino effect making a guilty plea the only rational choice in most cases. And as trials and hearings decline, so too does government accountability. Government mistakes and misconduct are rarely uncovered, or are simply resolved in a more favorable plea bargain." Studies of exonerations have determined that hundreds of people who serve prison time for crimes that it later turns out they didn't commit had pleaded guilty in the hopes of less punishment. What's happening to Loughlin and these other parents happens to hundreds of poorer, less connected defendants every day across the country. But we should be careful not to see it as karmic "balance" that a small group of wealthy, privileged parents is now getting railroaded by the system. It's not more "fair" when prosecutorial overreach affects rich people. It is, however, an excellent opportunity to talk about the fact that our criminal justice system punishes defendants not just for breaking the law, but also for exercising their constitutional rights. I wonder if this kind of despicable, lazy behavior by federal prosecutors can somehow be ruled unconstitutional by the SCOTUS, and stopped.

    Which tells me that maybe, just maybe, we have too many federal crimes on the books in the first place. Perhaps congress should investigate that. But who am I kidding...................... I guess another thing that irks me about this behavior is that prosecutors are effectively holding back charges to use as bargaining chips. Shouldn't all charges be presented at the same time?
