Halftime. Weird game. OCS with two things idk plays for TDs. A questionable at best intentional grounding call resulted in a safety and OCS kicked a FG to end the half. They get the ball back at halftime. Winner basically wins district. ...

Cowherd was discussing the inevitable UF coaching vacancy and he said that Kelly would likely be on the shortlist. Granted, it is highly, highly unlikely that Kelly would go back to the college ranks IMO, but if he would, there is arguably no place to do it than Florida.

| Outdoor Board|| Ideas for cleaning leaf stains from a boat deck - slackster on 10/24/14 at 11:33 am|
I've got an aluminum boat that has a deck coated with a spray gel designed to minimize the heat and add grip to the boat deck. It is basically a hybrid between a rhino-lining and a pure gel coat.
Anyway, the boat was uncovered for some time and there are stains even after a thorough pressure was...

You have a hard time believing the new owners got duped into this contract and will "only" make 25 million, yet you've got no problem with the fact that the team was sold for 550 million in the first place?
That was the going rate for the Bucks, plain and simple. I'm sure the owners were ecstati...

While I agree the worry seems to be over the top, this OP is a bit ridiculous.
2 million people die from Tuberculosis each year and no one seems to give a shite about TB either.
However, the Ebola virus has a 50-70% mortality rate, so there are legitimate reasons to take it seriously.

Yeah you usually want to avoid any FIAs with income riders and fees attached. The barebones products tend to be the best bang for your buck.
Bottom line is that fixed annuities have their place, as do FIAs. They are generally geared towards investors with similar risk tolerances. If you're enter...

Meh, not necessarily. Most index annuities would have outperformed the S&P from 1999-2008, just like most would have underperformed the S&P 500 in the 90s, but that is an unfair c...

I know. There are so many ways to rank teams. Are we ranking the best based on the results on the field? Are we taking an educated guess as to who is the best team on paper? Are we still biased based on last season and the preseason polls?
I just have a hard time ranking any teams ahead of Aubur...
