  1. You know it's a big deal when the NCAA just announced that all student athletes affected by this, not just seniors, will get an additional year/season of eligibility.
  2. Except that youth football in Indiana has already started seeing leagues with 7-man and 9-man full-pad/full-tackle teams playing in them. Included in schools playing this type of ball is a 2018 and 2019 sectional winner 5A school and a 2018 state champion 3A school.
  3. Folks who are in that Texas region will tell you ... they take their football seriously down there. There's room for both 11-man and 6-man down there and it doesn't diminish the 11-man fervor.
  4. Remember that the 3 million+ votes that Clinton had over Trump? Didn't matter. Similarly with square miles. BTW, just for comparison ... Here's New York, in county coverage, in 2016. Clinton won 17 counties to Trump's 45. Trump dropped that state by 22%+ ... and 100% of its electoral votes. It ain't about square miles, it's about population density and votes when carving up states.
  5. What a difference a couple of weeks makes in the simply recent poll ...
  6. I'm thinking there might be a flaw in the algorithm ...
  7. YouTube has a plethora of short-stories out there that are indie-like. Some of them look like high-school art projects, but there are MANY of them that are very well done. Many are post-apocalyptic or science-fiction ... DUST has many that look like versions of modern-day Twilight Zone or Outer Limits or even Black Mirror-lite. Certainly worth a look and most are usually about the length of a TV episode or less ... some are only about 10 minutes or so. Sometimes you'll stumble across one with a well-known actor in them doing a bit part. Came across this one this morning from a director/production group that I've not heard of before. Thought it was well-executed ... takes about 13 minutes to watch.
  8. Just curious, but I think I know the answer ... at one time, GID used to have a method whereas you could like a post, but that was it ... no down-votes, no confusion, no Fonzi, etc. In essence, you receive a rating increase when someone clicked good, but it was a non-decreasing number. Whatever happen to that method? I'm assuming that went away, or more likely was a feature of the old content management system, and when the server crashed and we ended up with the new distribution package ... which also allows some other interesting and positive components such as the clubs feature, etc. ... this is the feature that it had.
  9. The lack of "calendar" to have to play to has been particularly liberating. With Spring Break over and school back in session, there's still the job stress to a degree, but the lack of meetings, especially all those dang spontaneous ones, and the lack of having to be at this practice or that recital or this team picture or that parent meeting ... has allowed for more flexibility and less stress.
  10. Here's the original thread where the hire was announced with some run-up and subsequent commentary.
  11. Didn't Marian petition to move up two classes after they won the 1973 state championship?
  12. https://www.law360.com/tax-authority/federal/articles/1257333/immigrants-cut-out-of-senate-s-covid-19-stimulus-package FTA: Thousands of tax-paying immigrants won’t be eligible for stimulus checks under the $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package that sailed through the Senate, which excludes “nonresident aliens” and those without Social Security numbers. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act specifically mandates that people considered “nonresident aliens” won’t be eligible for the $1,200 per adult and $500 per child benefit that Congress is hoping to slip into people’s bank accounts sometime this spring. It requires check receivers to have filed their 2018 or 2019 taxes with a “valid identification number,” which the bill specifically defines as a Social Security number, although other taxpayer identification numbers exist. It’s a move that cuts of thousands of immigrants off from accessing the relief caused by massive layoffs across the country as business is rolled back and people are asked to remain at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The United States leads the world in number of diagnosed COVID-19 cases as of Thursday afternoon, surpassing much larger China and heavily afflicted Italy. The National Immigration Law Center called the decision to pass a bill that cut off so many in the country from financial aid during a public health crisis as “disgraceful,” noting that many immigrants will end up playing “an essential role in our recovery as a nation.” “Immigrant workers and families who are paying taxes have been cut out from receiving a single dollar,” NILC Executive Director Marielena Hincapié said in a statement. “ Since no other relief package appears imminent, the stakes are high for millions of low-wage workers and immigrants, who also need economic support and access to health care.”
  13. Like the info. Anything that gets kids interested/involved in the game and off the couches is a good thing. Thanks to all of the coaches, communities, players, fans, and other supporters that put so much into helping to make and keep this such a great game!
