re: Observations after reading the SEC previews - RidiculousHype
[quote]Huh? We hardly had any talent last year and most of them were freshmen lol[/quote] I was more talking about the losses at C, DL, and WR that seemed like premium guys. But returning the QB and RB is good. With that many sophomores playing this year, I still say 2015 is the year with a...

Observations after reading the SEC previews - RidiculousHype
Got a chance to finally start looking into what teams have coming back. Here are my thoughts on the SEC. Arkansas and Tennessee may not show much improvement this year, but they are both recruiting well and should be ready to take big steps forward in 2015. Ole Miss and Miss. St. are similar ...

re: Mixed Income Housing - RidiculousHype
[quote]First of all, mixed income housing is not new in New York, and it's not originally a De Blasio policy. If anything, he's just continuing and modifying an existing program. The reason it's become a popular idea is because the old style of building housing projects all lumped up in one spot j...

[quote]You could have just stopped at Auburn and had a legit discussion. LSU will have a decent team but there is no way an argument can be made that LSU is better than Bama right now.
