    Derek Chauvin verdict

    Check out this photo, because it tells the story. As I posted earlier in this thread, police officers are authorized to use lethal force if they believe that someone poses a significant threat of serious bodily injury or death to themselves or others. It's pretty clear that she posed a...

    OSU Baseball vs APB

    It's been awhile since we've won a baseball game by 4 touchdowns. :D

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    If you studied what happened closely, you know that Chauvin deserved to be convicted. He was justified in using the neck restraint, but only while Floyd was actively resisting. There was no justification for him to hold the neck restraint for over 9 minutes. I'm not sure if his actions rose to...

    Indianapolis shooting FedEx--Red Flag Law failed

    From what I've read, this individual hadn't made any threats. He didn't have a history of violence or mental illness. He got flagged for making comments about suicide. He was investigated by the FBI, and they concluded that he didn't pose a sufficient threat to warrant further restraint. The...

    Men's Basketball Bryce Thompson to transfer

    That's a good point. I forgot that super seniors don't count against the scholarship limit.

    Men's Basketball Bryce Thompson to transfer

    It's interesting to look at the numbers. We have 3 spots to fill from Cunningham, Flavors, & Mitchell, but we could have as many as 5 if Anderson & Williams don't return. On the other hand, we could have fewer to fill if the scholarship reduction stands. Woody Newton's commitment probably...

    Basketball 2021/2022 - Potential Improvements

    That's my guess. He reminds me a little bit of Moncrieffe with a little bit less size, but more range. He shot 38.9% from 3 last year, and he looks pretty athletic. He looks like he has a lot of potential.

    The Biden Administration Thread

    Per Joe Manchin: “I commit to you tonight, and I commit to all of your viewers and everyone else that’s watching. I want to allay those fears, I want to rest those fears for you right now because when they talk about whether it be packing the courts, or ending the filibuster, I will not vote to...

    Men's Basketball Bryce Thompson to transfer

    https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/big-12/texas-christian-university/article250303824.html I see that the Big 12 was expected to vote on changing their intra-conference transfer rules in early April, but I can't find the vote results. Does anyone know what they decided?

    Covid-19

    At this point, the vaccines are only authorized for emergency use. It's my understanding that federal law prohibits anyone from requiring a vaccination until after it receives full FDA approval. Check out the link for more details...

    Assistant coach Cannen Cunningham is moving on to help manage Cade's Career

    He was paid $200K his first year and $160K in his second year after budget cuts. He was the lowest paid full time coach on staff. We hired him to land his brother's commitment, but we paid him a fair salary.

    Covid-19

    You're looking at this from far too narrow of a lens. Let me share my perspective. I've known people from the health care industry that have benefited from this decision, but I've also known people that have laid family members to rest prior to the mask guidance changing, and they can't help but...

    Basketball 2021/2022 - Potential Improvements

    I have to hope that the development we've seen from Boone & Kouma has been the results of a group effort by the coaching staff and not just from Cunningham. He'll be a big loss if that development stops.

    Covid-19

    IMO, there's a big difference between a public health official addressing the general public during a deadly global pandemic and the military releasing classified information that puts soldiers at risk. I'm not arguing that PPE shouldn't have been preserved for frontline workers like you, but...

    Basketball 2021/2022 - Potential Improvements

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Cannen become a manager/advisor to Cade after he gets drafted. He should make around $40 million from his rookie contract alone, plus a lot more from endorsement deals. He'll need people around him that he can trust. Who knows though, he could continue his...
