  1. I'm too lazy to look up the old thread(s), so I'm starting a new one. It's a word association game. You know how it works. Opening word: Bus
  2. Several of the local schools are starting fall camp this week, so I figured this is as good a time as any to start a new college football thread. A few items of personal interest: 1. Can BYU recover from last season's 4-9 debacle and save Kalani Sitake's job? 1a. If Sitake does lose his job, who would replace him? 2. Most of the power rankings I've seen lately have Utah ranked number 3 in the Pac-12. Is this high praise for Kyle Wittingham's program, or an indictment of how mediocre the Pac-12 was last year, including 1-8 in bowl games? 3. Weber State, who made it to the FCS quarterfinals last year, has lost some players to graduation and some coaches to larger schools (including, oddly enough, BYU). Can the Wildcats make another deep playoff run this year? 4. Can anyone beat Alabama this year? And if so, how many Alabama losses (and to whom) will it take to keep them out of the playoff? 5. Is this the year Michigan finally does what they hired Jim Harbaugh to do? 6. Which Group of Five team will be this year's Central Florida? All right, kiddos, let's talk some college football!
  3. Are you in school? Do you teach school? Do you have family members in school? Are you experiencing (or have you experienced) strange, remarkable, and/or amusing things related to school? Or do you just like reading and taking about other people's school experiences? Then this thread is for you.

    ....and the Cleveland Browns are now in their fourth overtime game of the season. That's absolutely unbelievable.

    Quote of the Week From My Life.

    “The greatest battle of life is fought out within the silent chambers of the soul. A victory on the inside of a man’s heart is worth a hundred conquests on the battlefields of life. To be master of yourself is the best guarantee that you will be master of the situation. Know thyself. The crown of character is self-control.”

    The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong--but you'd better bet that way.

    When presented with the question, "Which way will the elevator go next?", L. Marcus took the third option. And he ended up being right.

    And yet another college football season devolves into "Alabama and the Seven Dwarfs".
  10. So, it's to be Dodgers-Red Sox in the World Series after all. Wake me up when pitchers and catchers report.

  12. Having just confirmed that the temperature in hell is above freezing, I'm forced at this point to root for the Brewers in game 7 of the NLCS. If it ends up being a Dodgers-Red Sox World Series, I'll just go ahead and consider baseball season done.

    A Little Good News

    Every once in a while, I'll see a news story that restores my faith in humanity and makes me feel like the powers-that-be haven't given up on this world just yet. This thread is for sharing stories like that.

    My kids looked at me funny over the way I was laughing as I read this. Cancer, you have a special sort of eloquence that I'm not sure whether I should fear or aspire to.

    His first stint in Denver wasn’t entirely catastrophic, as I recall. Actually, that sentence probably tells you everything you need to know.

    After last season, I guess I'm just excited to learn that Denver is not, in fact, the worst team in the National Football League.
