re: So Michigan Is Overpaying Harbaugh By What, $4 Million? - ChiSaint
[quote]"good coaches" dont deserve Saban or Meyer type of dough[/quote] Harbaugh went to the Super Bowl with COLIN KAEPERNICK as his QB. That is more than just "good" coaching. Let's say there was a draft of college coaches by the NFL to fill head coaching vacancies. Where does Harbaugh go? I ...

re: Californians might vote in 2018 for Secession - ChiSaint
[quote]You realize that literally every other state in the union would have to agree for them to leave? So we would have the power to vote out only California. Cracks me up how ill-informed this board is.[/quote] Yes, I do realize what the process entails (although it could actually be accomplish...

re: Californians might vote in 2018 for Secession - ChiSaint
[quote]then do it[/quote] I absolutely oppose the idea of succession by Cali (or any other state). It's a bunch of butt hurt whining from those that are unwilling to accept the results of our electoral process. And it's really not tenable for any state considering the idea. I felt exactly the ...

re: Californians might vote in 2018 for Secession - ChiSaint
Ok, so obviously this isn't happening. But it cracks me up at how ill informed this board is. If California seceded (and let's be honest, if they left, Oregon and Washington would follow them), it would have a hugely detrimental impact on the U.S. California's economy on a standalone basis in the...

re: Rasmussen: Trump +3 - ChiSaint
Please post the three links that show different results. I can't find anything that is showing different numbers (other than an NBC page that doesn't show final margins - e.g., it only shows 88% reporting for Arizona)....

re: Is it safe to assume no hacker has a "smoking gun"? - ChiSaint
No smoking gun (at least nothing that is going to affect the outcome of the election). If someone had a smoking gun, it would already have been released. With something like 40% of all votes expected to be cast before Election Day (I already voted and so have millions of others), waiting until right...

re: Rasmussen: Trump +3 - ChiSaint
Actual final results were Obama +3.9 (51.1 - 47.2%) as mentioned above. This isn't a liberal assertion, it's a fact. Rasmussen was off nearly 5% and picked the wrong winner. That is atrocious polling performance and the reason Rasmussen is generally considered a mediocre pollster at best. Link to...

re: The 5 Most Clutch Playoff Quarterbacks of All Time According to FiveThirtyEight - ChiSaint
What is so hilarious? Flacco has won two thirds of his playoff games and sports a pretty ridiculous 8-5 record in road playoff games (Brady is 5-4 in comparison). So Flacco is regularly winning as an underdog which is clutch. The fact he is overpaid and kind of sucks during the regular season has...

re: Is gymnastics proof that golf and tennis players are babies? - ChiSaint
[quote]Is poker a sport?[/quote] Did you seriously just use poker, a card game where you sit on your arse for hours on end, as your basis for disproving that gymnastics is a sport? Would you please elaborate on why golf is a sport and gymnastics, which requires elite level athleticism, is not?...

re: Hillary Is Going to Win and We Can All Blame the Trumpkins - ChiSaint

re: Teacher accused of encouraging teen boys to get naked, perform sexual acts - ChiSaint
[quote]I say feed him to the Mexican sodomites in the SA prison[/quote] But I thought I learned on the OT that if your 16 year old son is banging the teacher, you should high five him and buy him a beer. And the teacher shouldn't go to prison bc clearly teenagers want teacher sex so victimless cr...

re: San Jose is the most Forgettable Major American City, according to data - ChiSaint
I live in San Jose. While a nice place to live and more affordable than the rest of Silicon Valley (though still crazy expensive), there's not much memorable about it. It's really a sprawling bedroom community for the rest of the Bay Area. Before we moved out this way, I thought SJ was a city of lik...

re: Why doesn't DeAndre Jordan try underhand FT's? - ChiSaint
I agree. Was just reading an article about Chinanu Onuaku at Louisville who went from a 46.7% FT shooter to a 59.6% FT shooter by employing the underhand method. While still not great, that is massive improvement. Think about the impact it would have if Jordan could suddenly hit 60% of his FTs....

re: UFC: Dos Anjos injured; McGregor to fight Nate Diaz - ChiSaint
How is Nate not going to pop for weed post-fight? He didn't have a fight scheduled and wasn't in camp so I'm imagining he and Nick were sitting on the couch taking bong rips and watching reruns of Beavis and Butthead at the moment he got the call about the match-up....

[quote]so should they just not do the probowl any more? [/quote] I don't think they should continue to do a full-contact game if that's what you mean. Make it all skills challenges as others have suggested or, if one insists upon playing football, a flag football game. ...

re: Is Brandon Marshall a Hall of Famer? - ChiSaint
As of now, no. The Hall has been extremely reluctant to admit receivers (Chris Carter and Tim Brown each took a decade to get in with more impressive numbers than Marshall). In the 50+ year of the NFL HOF, they've only admitted 19 WRs. I just don't see Marshall making it when the following guy...
