    Covid-19

    Oh, I agree that a small number of people can influence things. The insane leap comes when the assumption is made that all their intentions are nefarious (unlikely) and that all of their intentions are aligned. Beyond that, its a numbers game. There are 100's of people just below the string...

    Covid-19

    I'm definitely of the opinion the power corrupts, and is often used to abuse, coerce, etc... But it's an insane leap to conflate corruption into some coordinated, nefarious "they". I have a few friends that believe the latter, and it always confuses me how they believe it. Anyone that has...

    Covid-19

    It's not just about distrusting the government, media, pharma, etc..... It's that the risk for a relatively healthy, young person living in a rural area is so astronomically small that it may not be worth the inherent risk involved with taking a brand new vaccine. Not sure why you're...

    Critical race theory in Idaho

    It's pretty easy to decide what is fair. Just talk with your friends that are in these groups that have been harmed. Ask them what they think. Believe it or not, you can actually figure some of this stuff out, and not fail under the weight of your white guilt. Every time I've discussed...

    You and jobob clearly need to GET A ROOM!

    NFL Draft

    Surely the first time in history that a draft prospect prediction has changed over the course of a year's time....:derp: Like I said, my prediction was always about round 4-5 leading up to the draft. When the OAN shirt stuff happened, I assumed it would be a bigger deal, and could lead to a...

    NFL Draft

    And you never made a prediction that I can find. Even when asked directly.... If you did, and I missed it, then please point it out.

    NFL Draft

    My stance was always predicting round 3-5, and was leaning towards round 5 right up to draft day, but wouldn't have been surprised to see him fall some *if* NFL owners were somehow upset by his social media stir. That's all I was trying to say. But of course you'll interpret it however you...

    Agreed. Not a great spot for him to land.

    Surprised. He went one round later than I expected. Yeah.....SOOOO much later :derp:

    NFL Draft

    Strong words from someone that didn't make any real predictions, himself... He went higher than he should have IMO. Thought he'd go in rounds 3-5 last when predicting in Nov., but thought maybe he would fall to 5 for some reason. Definitely the first time in history that a prediction was off...

    NFL Draft

    Really surprised Chuba went ahead of Wallace, especially considering the run on WRs that's happened in this draft.

    NFL Draft

    Tylan has a few knocks against him when considering the trends in the NFL right now. His injury and potential durability concerns will always be there. He isn't the biggest, fastest, or strongest. Many teams think he will struggle to get away from press coverage. He can't outrun DBs straight...

    We miiight be really good this year (football)

    You don't win championships (even conference championships) playing it safe. If 3rd place in the conference is good enough for you, then I can see why you're cool with the current approach. Personally, I'd like to see us building something off of our recent success not just rest on it so Gundy...

    We miiight be really good this year (football)

    I know. The scenario is completely ridiculous if the assumption is that we're trying to win the Big 12. Gundy's style of offense has a ceiling with the players we are able to recruit. So IF the goal is to win the Big 12, we either need way better O-linemen (unlikely to happen, as we all know)...
