[quote]FWIW....I played baseball at LSU and my son ran track at LSU. He will be the first one to tell you that if you have 2 or 3 stud sprinters on your roster that are healthy once the NCAA preliminary and national meets take place, that the eventual champion is almost predictable. Do you follow co...

[quote]Well, the advanced stats that strip out opponent strength (which was ridiculed as being stupid) also think that 2011 Alabama > 2011 LSU defensively, but either way both were great.

Play Oregon and West Virginia instead of Kent State (#119 ypg) and UNT (#116 ypg), then we'll talk turkey. It is always nice when you can reduce two of your opponents to an average of 100 total yards while the other team ...

Uber says the price has been raised to encourage more drivers to go to that area, basically what happens all the time. People react like crazy persons because they "raised the price to gouge people." If there aren't any drivers, no one can leave. Uber drivers work when they want. It is basically...
