Ive seen individuals from the GOP put out plans with actual numbers and actual solutions to end the deficit and start paying off the debt.
All I ever hear from the left is that taxes need to be raised with minimal to 0 cuts. Has anyone from the left put out an actual plan that details how this is...

Is a methodical power running game imposing your will still a viable way to win in today's SEC? Is the HUNH making it harder to use this strategy?
In the last 5-6 years, this has been the MO of teams like Alabama and LSU but it seems both are drifting away from this mentality.
Id argue that in...

He is a good politician. I do think he was probably involved in the lane closures and I hate his political positions but he knows what he is doing politically.
He could easily win the Presidency as a Democrat. Lets hope he just stays out of it....

Movies about Noah and Mary are coming out. They are missing out by not making a movie about the life of Paul who IMO other than Jesus had the most interesting life in the Bible.
His whole life from the time of the stoning of Stephen on was an adventure.
Samson would also be a great action fil...

If a coach can produce good results with a little bit of talent, is it a given that he can do a great results with a lot of talent?
Id say a good example of someone who has done both is Gus Malzahn.
Are there examples of coaches who were relatively better working with underdog teams than team...
