It is a funeral where the deceased's daughter is giving some last words and the priest keeps interrupting and correcting her English.

I just tried the link and it worked for me.  I can't find the video anywhere else.

We went about 75 days with only recently had 3 days with a 1/4 inch.  Well, that drought ended last night/today.  We are at about 9 inches right now with it fizzing down.

Long ago there was an edit function but posters abused it changing the context of their message. Admin just decided to take it away.

Oh the good ole days!!!!

Hasn't prevented a certain poster from constantly moving his goalposts.

Arizona State and Oregon State are not members of the Association of American Universities and therefore not likely to get an invitation to join.  Notre Dame is the only non-member of the AAU that would get an invitation.  Matter of fact they are already in the Big Ten Conference for ice hockey.

I don't think USC and UCLA will be required to offer wrestling even though it is an Olympic sport which B1G maintains high priority.
I doubt "required".  Hockey is an Olympic sport as is baseball and  not all B10 have them.

In all honesty, I saw this coming from the beginning and was totally against it.  Highest bidder can just but a championship and all the little guys will simple fold or suffer.

The Iowa Rivals board think that Mineo's claim is bogus.  He has been way off on several things recently.  I am in a "wait and see" pattern.  I am very skeptical that the payment claim is true.

According to Pat Mineo this is what it cost to get Woods to commit to the Hawkeyes:

 $200k+ NIL/HWC

Which confuses me (not hard to do).   Does this mean he is being PAID $200,000 AND in addition to that he is getting more money via a N.I.L. deal from Hawkeye boosters and he is also a part of the Hawkeye Wrestling Club?   How can he be getting paid $200 k to wrestle in college.  I know that N.I.L. deals (legalized NCAA corruption) are now okay (within the guidelines set forth by the NCAA) but just outright paying an NCAA athlete is still NOT okay as I understand it.

If that is the case then NCAA athletics are no more as far as I'm concerned.   It's now everything goes and the best athletes go to the schools who can afford to pay them more.

I don't care to watch professional athletes play games - which is why I rarely watch an NFL game and why I no longer watch the Olympics either.   Now it appears NCAA athletics are no different.
Your analysis is correct.  The money is upfront money for use of likeness in advertising.  It is now the norm - top college athletes for highest bidder.

Read yesterday speculation Henson may go 133.  I have no clue if that is a real option or not.

I think there is high probability Murin bumps to 157.  I agree with Barlett cutting to 141 to make room for Van Ness
Now that Real Woods is going to Iowa, I will agree with Murin moving up and Henson at 149.
