    He's not a football player. There are plenty of guys with freak physical traits that actually produce. Let's pick those players.

    Setting aside off-field stuff, the fact that his production didn't come close to equaling his skill set scares me. We've already got one inconsistent freak of nature on the defensive line.

    I'm sure he could slide into a support staff position and wait until Coley inevitably gets called up for another OC job or something. That would allow him to get a great working knowledge of how Kirby runs the program and he could crawl before he runs, so to speak. No doubt Hines could be a great asset, but he's completely unproven as a coaching commodity. Still, it would be great to see him back at UGA eventually.

    We just put an offer in on a house with 10 acres of land. I was hoping to sell our house first but it's time to get moving. I'll have one set of distant neighbors and that wooded area behind the house is TVA property. It will be the only thing between us and the Tennessee River.

    David Ross got a pretty nice retirement gift from Heyward. Ross will be in the hotel suite for every road trip on Heyward's dime.

    People complaining about Collins left and right and we want to take a project in the first? Meh. Guy has it written all over him. All the talent in the world. Lack of putting it together. We've already got Hageman.

    And now Brian Sandoval, the Republican governor of Nevada, is being floated as a potential nominee right after the GOP blocked any and all nominees from even being considered.

    Yep, her attitude towards the whole "butt pie" video thing has got the snowball rolling. You think when the Better Call Saul series is coming to an end, we'll see a Walter White entrance in the last scene to bring everything back around full circle? We're already getting post Breaking Bad Cinnabon scenes.

    That was symbolism for Jimmy not fitting in at his new job. After begrudgingly accepting the job and seemingly start to fit in, he's already uneasy. Could also be foreshadowing for his relationship with Kim.

    They are required to participate in the process they can deny, inquire, vote down as much as they want from their. Ironically Obama could sue and bring this issue up to the SCOTUS. That would be funny

    Here's the Advice and Consent Clause: "and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint . . . Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States" And here is what McConnell is saying: Presidents have a right to nominate just as the Senate has its constitutional right to provide or withhold consent,” McConnell said in a floor speech before the Judiciary Committee Republicans met on Tuesday. “In this case, the Senate will withhold it.” And this is what they said in the Letter: "The President MAY nominate . . . " Also from McConnell: Mr. Obama “has every right to nominate someone,” Mr. McConnell said Tuesday on the Senate floor. “Even if doing so will inevitably plunge our nation into another bitter and avoidable struggle, that certainly is his right. Even if he never expects that nominee to be actually confirmed but rather to wield as an election cudgel, he certainly has the right to do that.” Mr. McConnell added: “But he also has the right to make a different choice. He can let the people decide and make this an actual legacy-building moment rather than just another campaign roadshow.” It is clear that the DUTY of the President is to nominate a Justice. McConnell is flat at WRONG in his language that the President "may" nominate, or that he has the "right" to nominate or not nominate. The Constitutional duty to nominate is clear. The duty to appoint is also clear: SHALL appoint. Of course, the appoint requires the "Advice and Consent" . . . that second "shall" supports a determination that the "advice and consent" of the Senate is a duty of the Senate. They can advise him to nominate someone else. But they have to act . . . . at least based on a literal reading of the Constitution. McConnell is just B.S.'ing the troops with this statement. According to him, for the President to carry out his Constitutionally mandated duty would be to engage in divisive political games. He know this . . . He even said that he is doing what the Republican candidates want him to do. (Politics!?) Eight AND four years ago, the American people spoke. They chose President Obama to carry out the duties of the Office of President of the United States for a term of four years. The Senate Republicans are seeking to block the democratic process. (As I've said before, they don't have to confirm anyone . . . Heck, they could run out the clock by denying nominee after nominee . . . But they have to play the game.)

    No doubt about it. It's politically dangerous. I'm arguing against the notion that it is unprecedented and reflects a lack of respect for the Constitution, etc. I mean, drugging and raping women is bad, too, but I don't want to hear Bill Cosby lecture me about it.

    So you're saying Primetime does in fact make a difference? I know the Saints are bigger rival but I could see the game against Carolina being a huge game. It's such a tough call. I guess it will really depend when the games are actually scheduled as well.

    I'd take him in the 2'nd, that's when you take guys with 1'st round talent that have a big bust potential. He won't last that long though, and the risk's not worth a 1'st.

    You generally take guys who have athletic traits but don't produce in the 3rd. They could turn out to be great, but there's usually a reason they didn't produce, and that's a legitimate risk. If he'd produced 8 sacks when people thought he should have produced 13...sure, you take a guy like that. But extreme underwhelming production is a big red flag.

    The HUGE question is this. Can we take the risk???? No way imo. It's just too critical at this juncture in our franchise.

    I could care less about his red flags. SOMEBODY gonna draft this guy and turn him into SUH with SPEED. You guys want Beasley freed up to wreck havoc off the edge, you draft this kid. Im tired of seeing top notch guys, who should be top 5 picks, fall down in the draft, and the Falcons pass them up. Watch, Rex Ryan up in Buffalo or somebody like that will snatch him up and turn him into a superstar. Look what he did to Alabama's offensive line. He MAULED one of the best, if not the best, offensive lines in college:

    Why does the person posting that video assume that the man in the video is Muslim? Why would anyone seek news on a site called 'NewsFoxes', and then complain about the media? I think the answer to both questions is the same.

    I'm not sure about any of this, but from what I have read, I think it would work out something like this. 1) Obama nominates the nominee. 2) The nominee would arguably have a liberty interest in the the confirmation process. 3) The Senate Fails to act. 4) The Nominee files a lawsuit compelling the Senate to engage in the confirmation process. The lawsuit would be filed in a District favorably to the nominee and Obama. 5) The District Court compels a confirmation hearing. 6) Senate Republicans appeal . . . to the Supreme Court 7) The Supreme Court is tied 4-4. 9) The Lower Court's decision would therefore be binding. 10) The nominee is denied confirmation 11) Rinse, Repeat until January 20, 2017.

    My life improved a great deal when I stopped hanging around people that needed to define "rock" as things that they would or wouldn't listen to. They're worse than the Eagles fans.

    I will say that I think the music industry not really having the leg up it once had thanks to the possibilities offered for distribution by the internet is a big step in changing that evolutionary cycle. It really has the potential to put the power into the hands of the artists. That leads to artists making records they want to make rather than records they are told to make. It weeds out the bullsh!t, and leads to more people being willing and able to push the creative envelope for themselves & their audience. The problem is most folks are still so wrapped in that antiquated idea of "we gotta get signed to a label to be legitimized" that they pretty much end up volunteering their own freedom to a broken system that exists to exploit them & spit them out instead of creating one on their own terms. Watching people who claim to be creative fail to operate outside the box is pretty frustrating.

    Thanks, man. And that was essentially my point... on the surface, rock music often looks like it's dead, but it really just changes & operates slightly under the surface. While there are periods where it's seems more hidden, there's always gonna be some kid banging the sh!t out of an instrument in garage somewhere, doing something that's gonna light a spark eventually. Additionally, not everything is gonna resonate with everybody, nor should it. That's a huge part of the beauty in it & what defines it as art in my mind. Heck, even the stuff that outgrows itself... becomes kinda tired or cheesy or whatever... seems to eventually cycle around after enough time & become cool again due to nostalgic reasons. Popular culture & especially rock music is very circular in its evolution in my opinion, but then again maybe that's just a reflection of society in general.

    This is the calculus they're doing right now. They'll delay and then if, come June, it's readily apparent that Hillary is going to win the presidency, they'll probably confirm whomever Obama nominates, assuming that person is at least somewhat centrist. Of course, it's a dangerous game. If they wait too long, it's possible they could influence Senate races negatively, lose the White House and the Senate, and in the next term (or two) see two or more liberal democratic nominees reach the bench. Pan willing.

    Inspections are very important and I would encourage everyone to get a home inspection. Having said that, please understand that every house has - at the very least - several minor things wrong with it - there are no perfect houses - even the most expensive. I always advise my mortgage clients - "obviously there are deal killers if these things are found in an inspection: foundation issues, severe plumbing or electrical, mold, current infestations of termites, etc, etc." - however, if you pay for an inspection - it is common-place to get an inspection report with 5-10 pages of items and pics of things that might be minor imperfections to more significant. Of course the goal is to try and get seller to fix some of these things but if you go to a seller and ask for too much, more than likely they will just say "NO" - bank-owned properties will almost always say "no" unless they are repairs required by the lender/appraiser. If you love the house, don't let a list of minor things stop you - beware of the major things though! my 2 cents as a mortgage lender.

    Just got back from Bourbon and Bacon. My buddy in Charleston assures me that it is the best event all year in town. I had a blast. Next year I will bring a journal. The event was in a large ballroom with two circular bars in the center, one bar on the end and a stage on the other end with a live band. On the sides were small booths along the walls. The booths had exquisite original bacon dishes. My favorite dish was a pesto ravioli. The stuffing was a braised pork belly with a ravioli made from pulverized bacon covered in Pesto with rendered bacon fat instead of olive oil. Topped of with a bacon infused roma tomato. I get a little light headed just thinking about it. There are lots of other great dishes, but this one took the prize in my book. Now to the Bourbon. We spent the extra for the VIP access, wich mainly gives you an hour before they open the doors to general admission. When going to these kinds of things a host who has been there before invaluable. The first hour was absolutely delightful. There were about a hundred people in room that can hold much more. Once they let the general admission in, the room was crowded like a concert. I think my favorite was the Old Forester 1870. My pallet is not as refined as some, but this one was light and smooth at the start and finished with spice and a little oak. I went back several times for this one. I must have tasted twenty or more. The Four Roses small batch is fantastic.

    I have 3 requirements. 1) Land. I want at least 1 acre. Up to 5. I would like a pool, hottub, and bball. If I have the land, I'll build it. If they already have it, bonus. 2) An enormous basement I can custom build into my man cave. 3) Positive equity. I'm not interested in overpaying for my dream home. I'd rather get a value purchase and upgrade personalizing it. On the other hand, my wife has 867 other requirements. P.S. I'm strongly considering building a house. I hear it's a nightmare and puts a big strain on your marriage. But a custom home that has everything the way I want it the moment I move in is a really sexy idea. And from everyone I know that has done it, they end up with 30-40% positive equity by the time it is built.

    I agree. There's so much to love about him. He's the type of guy who flashes brilliance and domination with freak athletic traits. So when you look at a highlight video he looks like the best player in the draft. Thing is however, that those plays come way to sparingly & what you don't see are all the monotonous hours of film where he was doing absolutely jack squat....

    JdaveG. Obama isn't about to appoint a moderate to anything. The man is incapable of compromise or anything close to it. He will appoint a far leftist, wanting the angst and activist to unit. It's who he is.

    For me being a parent of a 7 year old girl, it was mainly about the school district. I bought 8 acres then bought a house and had it moved to my land. The move cost $11,000. That was about 5 years ago.
