I'm a staunch realist, and I believe Obama's move is asserting economic strength to overpower Cuba. It's the best, and likely ...

It's less of a debate of who did better at the respective schools and more a debate of which of the schools is better set-up for a coach to succeed.
Stanford has been to the Rose Bowl 14 times.
Michigan State has been there 5.
Ty Willingham won the Pac10 at Stanford. He was atrocious every...

I think Harbaugh would kill it at Michigan. I also don't think he can match Saban's success at Bama. Who knows who the "better" coach is, but the only logical and useful way to compare coaches is via success defined as conference and national championships. If at Michigan, Harbaugh can't match Sa...

Stanford is no traditional powerhouse, but having success there does not automatically equal elite coaching prowess. Ask Notre Dame/UDub about that....

I'm willing to accept that Kurzer-Zlotnick is intelligent, well-meaning, and likely will contribute to society in some way. She also needs to grow up fast so her immaturity does...

Hard to say.
IMO Beckham, Landry, Hill, Patrick Peterson, Mingo, and Matthieu would all be in the NFL regardless of where they went to school. Inferior coaching at Tennessee Tech or some other random school wouldn't prevent players with that level of talent from reaching the NFL. LSU may have a...

Not that all the Balkan groups don't have their share of crazies that play by different rules, but people do realize it was the Serbs who committed genocide against the Bosnians, right?

[quote]which one is not like the others? [/quote]
TCU, they didn't win their conference outright. Also, if we use tiebreakers like other conferences do, TCU didn't win its conference period.
It's pretty simple really. There are 5 power conferences and 4 playoff spots. Someone must be left out...
