The full (short) opinion is in the link. It addresses most of the arguments in this thread. It's worth reading instead of a short news recap.
The most interesting part of the opinion is that they never made it to what kind of cake he was supposed to make. (Really. It could have mattered in t...

He must mean that LSU will be "in line" as a possible at-large selection because with a win Friday they'd meet the criteria of 9 wins and finishing in the top 14 of the BCS. But it's the back of the line. ...

I still have the 5 and s/o has the 5s, and I don't see a reason to upgrade mine. The 5s is the off-year bump in specs; the 5 was the cycle upgrade over the 4 and 4s.
Normally I'd say go for the best available, but I've never looked into getting a retail model, just a contract upgrade. I don't k...
