For the Catamounts. Or 42-3, either way, not good for the visiting team....

[quote]Also, what makes soccer different than the big 3 American sports[/quote]
Actually the mental approach playing football and soccer is pretty similar. Different game sure, but you need the same kind of focus and organization and team unity to get anything done. Down the road I think it'll be...

[quote]No doubt the monetary discrepency is another amazing factor. But your CR example just goes to show how much the culture factor trumps everything. Somehow we need to develop a love of the game in our youth. Until that happens, we will always be behind the 8 ball. I'm sure we all have many stor...

[quote]Ya, it sucked [/quote]
It did suck, but I don't know if it was much worse than any other of the dorms available at the time. Burke seemed just as bad. I guess one advantage over Burke is that we had sinks in our rooms. My roommate, the animal that he was, would invariably piss in that sink...

[quote]IMO if $5,000 is your average emergency fund balance I wouldn't worry much about the interest rate you're getting. It's more important that the money is there and readily accessible rather than serving as a pseudo investment. You're not going to be earning much interest on that amount anyway....
| Money Talk|| Emergency money account advice - RolltidePA on 7/1/14 at 9:05 am|
Hey all, just wanted to get some thoughts on places to keep some emergency money. The wife and I usually keep $5,000 on hand for any emergency type house or car repairs (new roof, new AC unit, transmission, etc.) Since we live in an old house and I drive a 12 year old car these things come up with a...

I typically root for and keep tabs on schools where family went.
I root for Pitt since my parents went there. I also pull for NC State, my sister, her husband and my cousin went there. My grandfather went to Washington, so I root for them. I'll also root for Penn State, since I have so many frie...

I was at the WVU / Miami game in Morgantown back in the 90's where the fans threw a full metal trashcan and hit Randy Shannon with it. Poor guy had to have surgery to fix the damage from that. What you didn't see was all of the fans throwing C and D cell batteries at the Miami team and fans. It look...

I never said either team was more prevalent than the in-state teams which is 99.999% of teams represented here on shirts, hats, and cars.(Carolin...
| SEC Rant|| re: Will the Spread offense eventually die out? - RolltidePA on 1/23/14 at 11:15 am|
It may change form, but it'll be around in some way or another. Any offense that makes you play 11 on 11 is bound to be around in some fashion.
Honestly the only thing that I've really seen die is the classic QB under center, two backs split, two receiver, old style pro set. I haven't seen that f...

This isn't SEC country but Pennsylvania does A-AAAA.
Due to the fact that PA is divided up into townships, and that most townships and boroughs have their own school system, for the most part PA schools are a lot smaller student wise. Most of the areas that have county schools are really small po...
