You can get a minor tax break on interest paid on student loans and you'll get a nice tax benefit of putting the money in the IRA
The interest rate on those loans isn't high enough to justify...

I think when I signed up with my company they would allow you to put up to 90% in

I suppose you could make an argument that the skill position talent on both teams was pretty similar.
Would USC have put up similar numbers in the SEC during those years in your opin...
