Bama may well have 2 of the top 5, maybe even top 2 of  3, QBs in college football.  Jalen Hurts put on show as back-up.  Didn't show any signs of rust.

No B1G in the playoff.....such is the price for a competitive conference.where almost any team can knock off the B1G dog.

Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern...the guy could make the Wildcats a continual top 10 team if Admissions would enable him to recruit under the admit standard.

Off-Topic / When a Death is Truly a Death Match

"Puerto Rican star Cuervo (The Raven) was knocked unconscious and reportedly had his skull fractured after being blindsided by a brutal blow to the back of his head in a match against Angel o Demonio (Angel or Demon) at the Lucha Libre Boom show."

"Cuero was standing on the ground outside the ring when his opponent launched the missile and sent him crashing face-first to the floor."

"The “death match” was immediately called off. Angel o Demonio jumped out of the ring to check on his fallen rival but was ordered away by a doctor."

So we replaced the wood trim under the eaves and behind the gutter with PVC at my son's house.  Now we've got a woodpecker pecking holes in the PVC.  Freaking bird is hanging upside down off PVC and pecking away.  He's chipped like holes, 2 went all the way through 1" PVC.  The previous wood wasn't bad. no bugs when we removed it.  No nests under the eaves.  The only difference, we put 2" D louvered vents in the eaves.

The PVC has been primed with latex and painted too.  All of the pecking is about an inch from the vent holes though there is evidence he's pecked at the louvers. 

Now we are trying to figure out how deter the pesky critter.  Got to find a way because I'm not Bondo-ing some 50 2" holes. 

I've researched and no one has a reasonable solution.  Hang streamers, one guy writes....fat chance buddy, not making the house look like a carnival.  I may try moth balls...just remove the vent , place a few moth balls to the inside and replace.  Hopefully the aroma will dissuade.  Freakin son put a crossbow arrow in the eave trying to bag the bugger.

........a fan that is.

Brooks Koepka accidentally slammed a fan in the face with a stray ball during the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris.  The way they allow the fans to line up ahead of shots it was just a matter of time a mis-strike would take out a fan.  I just hope it's only a nasty headache and gash and not a busted eye socket or skull fracture.

You probably watched the movie, "Catch Me If You Can" with Leonardo DeCaprio.....a far fetched tail of being a professional impersonator and forger.

If you have 27 minutes, here is his fascinating story, plus his personal message near the end.

5, count'em 5 1952 Mickey Mantle's. The best is worth over $1 M.  They probably have a couple of Willie Mays too.

NJ brothers find 5 coveted 1952 Mickey Mantle cards in old collection

"And the brothers' collection is already doing quite well. There were 26 cards sold in Heritage's auction in July for a total of $384,000. That included a PSA 7.5 ($200,000) and a PSA 5 ($72,000) that both returned more than estimated.

The current auction has six cards from their collection, including the Mantle PSA 8.5 (valued at +$1M) and their final two Mantle cards — a PSA 7 estimated at $100,000 and another PSA 5 estimated at $40,000 — will be part of an offering in the fall.

College / NCAA Changes the Transfer Rule
« on: June 14, 2018, 06:18:57 PM »
Scholarship athletes re now free to to transfer out of one program and accept scholarship aid from another program without losing a year.  All an athlete has to do is inform his head coach he would like to explore a transfer. 

The coach gets 2 days to post the student athletes name on an NCAA website and once there the athlete can contact other coaches.

All goes into effect Oct 15, 2018.

The sole caveat......coaches can block an athlete from transferring to a school within the conference.

Jim Harbaugh says Michigan is going on safari in South Africa next spring. Last spring Team Michigan visited Paris. Last year, the team took a trip to Rome.

All travel expenses are funded by university boosters..

How is this any different than a booster handing a kid a wad of cash or the keys to car ?  Is it because the cash never goes directly into the kids' hands? Is it because the entire team enjoys the perks ?

I'm a Michigan fan. I like Harbough as coach, but I have a real problem with these kinds of benefits.  I am sure the B1G committee has reviewed this benefit, as too the NCAA.  He wouldn't have gotten past year 1 if it wasn't acceptable without penalty.
