Has anyone taken this exam and if so, how did you prepare? I have taken a class on price risk management and have a strong foundation on hedging. Would free online material be enough to prepare or is there a text that would be recommended? Thanks....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| 2 qb auction draft - TheWalrus on 7/23/14 at 2:07 am|
10 or 12 team league, I'm thinking about spending a good chunk of my budget on 2 stud qbs. Usually by mid season I'm starting waiver rbs and wrs anyway and I'm not bombing my draft with rbs who are not sure things like last year. What strategies work in this format?...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Where have all the "insiders" gone? - TheWalrus on 7/11/14 at 1:37 am|
This time last year, this board was teeming with "insiders" who knew all the scoops about the 2014 recruits. This year, there seems to be almost none of that. Even 247 has a suspicious lack of "inside info" from posters. Is it because the way the class turned out exposed most of the insiders as full...
| Soccer Board|| Did the Confederations Cup doom Brazil? - TheWalrus on 7/9/14 at 1:29 am|
Cruising in the Confederations Cup gave the expected starting xi an entire year of pretty much an assured place without any competition. Fred scoring goals gave Scolari an irrational confidence in him when it was apparent he was out of depth in this tournament. Destroying a Spain team that was past ...

As a neutral fan, is there anything more depressing to watch than an athlete that has lost all confidence in himself? Watching Iker Casillas today and Mario Chalmers the past couple games got me thinking about this. Rick Ankiel as a pitcher, Chuck Knoblauch, Roy Hibbert early in the playoffs and cou...

It's sad how Title IX has absolutely destroyed men's college volleyball. There are more than 300 women's volleyball teams in the top division and less than 30 men's team, with an additional 10 DII teams. ...

They made the Sweet 16 in 2010 and got great media attention during the run. This year they are 1-18 with their only win against DIII Oberlin College. How can a program experience such a wide swing in 4 years with the same coach at the helm? ...

In my opinion, without a doubt, it was the 2004 Euro Champion Greece team. Not many Americans remember this tournament because it wasn't broadcast on US TV and I don't know how live streaming sites were at the time. My dad ordered it on ...

I'm at a crowded highway stop and a guy gets out of his Audi and shows me a giant hole in his pocket and says he lost his wallet, can I give him some gas money. I said I can get a security officer to help him if needs, he gets back in his car and speeds off. What are the chances the guy legitimately...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Tony Romo and Deangelo Williams for Andy Dalton - TheWalrus on 9/14/13 at 10:56 pm|
WTF is this? I'm in a money league that my friend is running and he just pulled this trade. I don't think it's collusion, based on the way the other guy did his auction draft, I think he has no idea how fantasy football works. If it was Williams and Dalton for Romo, I would think it was a reasonable...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| LSU is using a scholarship on a Backup High School Kicker - TheWalrus on 9/3/13 at 3:30 pm|
I was skeptical when LSU took Cameron Gamble's commitment. I watched him on film and while he had a big leg, I had major issues with his approach. I was also skeptical on his accuracy.
People were saying to trust the staff and taking a kicker is warranted.
But Cameron Gamble has been the backu...

Yet again confirming that if you are being recruited by LSU, you will be at the least a high 3 star by the services. Just to clarify, those are the ratings points, not where they are ranked in the 247, which neither one is ranked in.

I've looked through all the Fournette ESPN threads and I didn't see this video posted anywhere. When asked about what schools he's considering, he says he hasn't decided on a top 5 or top 10 and he's wide open right now. He also says he feels "no pressure" to stay close to home.

I rented my first game from Redbox, MLB 2k13 for Xbox 360, just to see if it is as atrocious as everyone says. Anyway, I get an empty box. Some lowlife scumbags are stealing the games and putting the barcodes in the box in a way that it scans the game as returned. Is this common? Do they have anyway...

I was talking with a friend about the age limit in the NBA. There has been some talk about the 3-year out of high school rule in the NFL being too much in cases like Clowney. So I was wondering, say Robert Nkemdiche was eligible for this upcoming draft. Where does he go in the draft? I would say lat...

I was on Trey Quinn's 247 profile and very surprised to see that Clemson and Texas Tech are listed as warmer, along with LSU. A&M, along with Ole Miss and Notre Dame are listed as warm. Why the sudden shift in his recruitment or is 247 grasping at straws here? If premium info addresses this, let me ...
