It seems like these are relatively new neighborhoods, which is somewhat reflected in the prices. Marketed as high quality materials with gourmet kitchens and ...

With a win over Texas, Baylor would be 11-1 on the season and ranked in the top 10. Seems like Baylor would deserve an at-large BCS bid over Clemson, yet most bowl projections have Clemson getting the nod. Is this because of them getting first choice of a replacement at-large for Florida State?...

Currently, our take home is about $5,800/month. No CC, student loans, or car loans currently.
For principal + interest, and escrow for taxes/home insur...

The Dragons had about a 30 point lead and completely melted down, letting a 4 and a half foot guard dominate them. Lack of discipline and some over anxious passes on the offensive end did them in.
Props to the Be...
