re: USC and UCLA headed to the Big 10. Update: It's official - TouchedTheAxeIn82
From a Cal-associated journalist: 1.) The Regents do have to approve this decision 2.) Cal has to create an outcome that manages the stadium debt and the ongoing need for revenue (both direct and the large indirect amounts) that come from Cal participating in big time college athletics 3.) If t...

[quote]It's Silverstone week. FP1 and FP2 tomorrow. Let's focus fellas.[/quote] One of the great tracks. Copse-Maggots-Becketts is my favorite series of corners in F1. Copse is my favorite high-speed corner in F1, it's better than 130R. I think someone posted that they think Mercedes might be ta...

[quote]It would be very weird for USC and UCLA to be the only teams out west in the Big 10. it wouldn't be great logistically for them in terms of traveling costs, etc. yeah some schools from the group of stanford, cal, washington, oregon are definitely getting invited.[/quote] Maybe all of them...

re: NIL drastically changing Col Football...FL still sucks - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]Miami Hurricanes QB commit Jaden Rashada signs $9.5 million NIL deal[/quote] What I find fascinating, is that when an NFL team drafts a player in the first few rounds (and in the 1st Round especially, obviously) there is tremendous pressure on the GM and coach to make those highly drafted pl...

re: Midyear 2022 movie review - TouchedTheAxeIn82

[quote]what's that movie (old age is causing my mind to blank out) where there's like a naked man travelling through space in a clear bubble over millions of years. "The globe" or 'the bubble" or something like that. it had huge hype when it was coming out and i remember the visuals were great bu...

[quote]I would describe Fifth Element as some sort of demented Space Opera, even if somewhat entertaining. One can argue whether Space Opera is SciFi all day, I suppose, but [b]I generally agree that there should be some element of "science" in "science fiction."[/b] [b]For example, I do not s...

[quote]You wouldn't consider The Fifth Element as sci fi? Wut in tarnation?[/quote] :lol: I think people throw around the term sci-fi too loosely. When considering a future world or alternative world, I think sci-fi should pay at least mild attention to imagining technology in a somewhat realist...

Oh that reminds me, [b]The History of Time Travel[/b], on Prime, is severely under-appreciated. A lot of people can't get past the terrible acting to see where the story goes, but it's only 1h10m long. The production is bad but the story is great. ...

Wow, Alonso has just been given a 5-second time penalty for weaving/blocking, dropping him to P9. Bottas now with 6 pts, Zhou with 4 pts! [img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FVpWvsbWAAEqHHQ?format=jpg&name=900x900[/img]...

Zhou with 2 points, he really deserves it. He's been driving better than his results had been showing. He's having a much better rookie year than Yuki, Mick, and Nikita last year. Albon finished ahead of Gasly. What's wrong with AlphaTauri this year? :dope:...
