    Speaking of apprenticeships, there are a ton of trade unions around the US that offer well paying apprenticeship programs.  You get paid and you learn a valuable trade.  I’ve been in the building, construction and data center industry for over 20 years.  Union electricians, mechanics, painters, etc. make incredible money.  On top of that they receive a handsome pension when they retire.

    Exactly.  So why do we need the US tax payer to fork over the bill to pay for someone’s education?  
     
    The means are already there.  Countless scholarships, state lotteries, etc. low interest loans even after that.  People need to take the initiative to do these things not expect it from others who did it themselves in the past.

    Ok, we're speaking hypotheticals here. So said garbage man gets $25 per hour, enough? maybe? So then he only shows up for work 3 out of 5 days. We have enough welfare recipients as it is. As a country we can't afford to give until everybody is fat and sassy. Our debt of 20 something TRILLION dollars will break this country down. I used China before, we can go that road easily. Housing will be provided and food but free thought and the ability to express it as we are doing here, forget it!

    Yeah it’s called a state lottery.  If you choose to play it you’re subsidizing that scholarship.

    Why can’t THEY sacrifice to elevate themselves?? 
     
    And no YOU think EVERYONE ELSE should pay for someone else’s things because those people lack the drive to put in the effort to invest in themselves.  
    As I stated, there are many means of paying for your secondary education.  **** in Georgia alone you can get your tuition paid for with a B average in HS.  I came from pretty humble beginnings and I did it and now have a successful career as an engineer.

    Oh just give them anything they want. Give them a Ford, that will soon be insufficient. Then it must be a Mercedes. Entitlement has no limits. We are meant as people to make our own way by getting off our a-- and working for our dreams. At least so many immigrants are striving to get to our opportunities. They traverse a 1000 miles in many cases.

    Yes. It’s called sacrifice.  Noticed you failed to mention ANYTHING else I said in my post.  You have NO leg to stand on.  I’m sorry you have so little motivation to elevate yourself in life and want to whine, cry and pout like the overgrown child demanding others take care of you.

    If no immediate gratification is granted, people now will complain. It is just the sad result of social media. You can always post something somewhere and get immediate gratification. Completely lost is the bigger picture and that you have to constantly grind your way up by hard work and relentless effort.

    Pell Grant, Hope Scholarship and countless academic and athletic scholarships and of course low interest student loans.
     
    I came from a family with little means and was the 1st in my family to go to college. I received the Pell Grant, a math science academic scholarship and the Hope scholarship (and I didn’t even look for any other scholarships). Later I took out student loans.  Worked my *** off. At one point was living out of my car and sleeping in the student center at Tech.  Got out. Paid off my student loans a few years ago.
    When you choose to go to college you are making a future investment in yourself.  If you make a ****ty investment (Sociology, Gender Studies, Drama) in your education where you can’t get a job and you fail to pay for your loans if you have them, that’s on YOU.  It’s not other people’s responsibility to pay for YOUR education.  It’s not easy but maybe that’s the problem. Lazy people now won’t put forth the effort to 1. Look for scholarships 2. Invest in degrees that are much harder to earn but almost guarantee employment (engineering, nursing, trades).

    The US should rather concentrate to establish a working apprenticeship system like many European countries have. It would make many useless degrees in the US redundant.
    But that would mean being an apprentice for some three years and I already see people here calling that „slave labor“. That it ultimately often results in better paid job than what you get from a generic college degree is often ignored.

    And other people have other opinion where tax dollars - more likely borrowed money - should go. The democratic process determines what will happen.

    It is the reality, It doesn‘t matter if stupid or not.
    Whining and complaining will do you no good. Companies already actively avoid that type of millenials. I work closely with HR in my company and it is getting more and more difficult to find young people where our expectations are met with their expectations.

    It is part of the entitlement that your life has automatically be as good or better than the life of your parents. Every generation faces their own challenges and blaming your parents or borrowing money from your future children will not solve anything.

    While I think free college education could be possible in the US as well, I absolutely agree that some people just want to use the country as their personal credit card. 
    What really bothers me most is that they called themselfes anti-capitalists. But it is not like they donate their extra money from Uncle Sam‘s credit card to good causes, they just want to consume more.
    Little entitled crybabies.

    I'm starting a "GoFundMe" page. My goal will be $45K. I wanna help the dissatisfied fan who feels left out of the joy that the rest of us are experiencing. The funds will go towards a pizza party and ice cream buffet. I'll rent out a Zaxby's parking lot and hire a French mime for a lil "international zest". Ya'll deserve to be happy too.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about Gurley's addition.  The investment in the young O-Linemen should pay off this year and I think our offense can be very effective with Gurley at around 800+ yards and 10+ TD's.

    Charles Wright reacted to Vandy in PFF - NFL’s top runners against stacked boxes in 2019:   
    That’s the thing, falcons are a much bigger threat to pass the ball than rams were, so teams won’t be stacking the box near as much when Gurley runs the ball this season. 
     
    Two questions I have though are:
    1) Koetter: Is he smart enough to utilize Gurley effectively? If  McVay couldn’t, what makes folks think DK can?
     
    (2) Although improvement is expected, folks (not you) in here pretending our OL was any better than rams were last year have their heads in the sand. Will OL block effectively on running plays? Freeman isn’t what he once was, well neither is Gurley. And even Barry sanders needed a crease to run the ball. There weren't many creases for our RBs to run thru last year.
