One of the ugliest cards I've seen in awhile.  Probably a big winner tho.  Good luck.  I can't do most of these plays but I hope you win.

Was wondering Boom's take on North Texas +7.5 and Middle Ten +6.5 this Saturday.  Those are my two picks for this weekend.  I'm thinking a decent chance of both actually winning here.  Considering a small money line play on one ... maybe even a small ML parlay on both.

I think the only place Pitt is equal or close is kickers...and maybe a couple guys on the O line. Situation favors Pitt....no pressure....no playoff talk.BC and Tex A&M are the teams most similar to Pitt on Clemsons schedule and those were their toughest games on O....Just talkin.....

I'm not sure comparing Pitt to Tex A&M is meaningful given the difference in talent level regardless of their style of play.  That's like comparing Georgia Tech to Air Force or even Army vs Navy.  Texas A&M can make things interesting against Clemson ... Pittsburgh can't.  My concern with this game is if Clemson will let off the gas pedal once they get a 3 TD lead.  There's no point blowing out this over matched Pittsburgh team ... why not just pull your starters ... stay HEALTHY instead of risking injury?  Playoffs is a few weeks away so resting players is not a concern ... only avoiding injuries is.  So how will Clemson's second team play against Pittsburgh 1's?  And WHEN do the first unit guys get pulled?  Maybe Pittsburgh can cover because of this.  Situational play?  Absolutely but not because of any of the reasons you've mentioned IMO.  No pressure, no playoff talk ... that's not gunna mean a damn thing for Pittsburgh because Clemson is bringing A-game regardless how Pitt feels but will Clemson keep the pressure on end of 3rd quarter and entire 4th quarter?  That I don't know.

I initially thought the line was just too much ... but statistically Boise St is the best offense and second best defense Colorado St will face to date.  Colorado St defense has given up a ton of yards/points to EVERY offense it has faced (including junk teams like San Jose St).  This defense now has to face the 19th ranked offense (10th best passing offense) while they are a mere 108th total defense.  On the other side of the ball Colorado St will have to face a stout rush defense while their rush offense is only averaging 3.2 yards per carry.  Boise St's total defense ranks 24th in the nation folks.  Colorado St will be facing a ton of 3rd and longs all day long.  Boise State's last game was not their best performance (even if they won) ... I'm expecting a first class beat down tonight.  I'm taking Boise Team Total OVER and Boise -23.5.

I think people think Troy stops Liberty more than Troys new QB shooting blanks .  Against sh*t competition like the New Mexicos and Old Dominion they rocked that scoreboard but against decent competition not so much.  I'm assuming bettors are rating that Troy defense as relatively competent.  I see this as a Troy 40's against Liberty 20's ish type game.  I think the new Troy QB has played in a few games this year here and there but last game he strung together several 3 and outs in a row when he was put in for real duty vs spot duty.  So makes me think twice about him ... however he is going against that swiss cheese Liberty defense that's prolly tired to the bone by now.  Initially the over looked decent for me but i think troys defense does enough to give this over a difficult cover.  That's just my two cents since you guys were considering this game.  I personally lean Troy and pass on the over/under.

That's funny about the changing teams comment because I did around 2009/2010/2011.  I went through some personal hardships financially and health wise which changed my perception of myself and life in general.  Trust me, I was probably more hardcore republican than YOU!  I grew up in a military family and worked many years in the greedy financial sector.  All i cared about was low taxes, zero government intervention in business and a STRONG military!!!  Times have changed for me ... politically speaking.

Never heard of Sytrinol.  How did you find out about this?  I researched it a bit and it looks pretty legit.

Religion has no place in politics... this is coming from a voter who identifies as republican

I agree.  Not surprisingly I am a big fan of "separation of church and state".  But we have so many @ss clowns in politics trying to implement and enforce their particular religious beliefs on ALL of us through legislation.  I can't stand it.

Politics / Trump's CFO / View Post

I don't know how I missed this but I read Allen Weisselberg (Trump Organization CFO) was granted immunity in exchange for information/testimony in the Cohen case.  My understanding is that he has ONLY cooperated with the feds regarding Cohen's case.  If this guy flips and spills the entire can of beans ... Trump will be finished.  This is the man Trump needs to save his pardon card for ... he needs to make it known that under no circumstance will he allow Weisselberg go to federal prison.  Which reminds me ... is Trump's tax audit over yet?  Thought he was gunna release his returns after the audit.  Or another b.s. campaign promise.

Many years ago (late 90's) I was told a Top Secret clearance would take 9 months to get.  For a brief time I worked for a defense contractor and had to eventually get one if I stayed on.  I ended up taking another job in a different sector and sometimes I wonder if they would of given a schmuck like me security clearance.  From my very LIMITED understanding security clearance for these guys (Brennan, McRaven) is needed so current employees (example, supreme commander of NATO ... etc, etc) can solicit advice from the former guy that held the same position.  In the end experience matters and you can't consult your elders if they don't have relevant and recent intelligence briefings/reports.  That's just my two cents regarding this matter.

McRaven was appointed the chancellor of The University of Texas System in Jan.2015..Texas Senate Bill 11 – known as "campus carry" –did not take effect till Aug. 1, 2016...Admiral McRaven was one of the most prominent opponents of the "campus carry" bill before it was passed and it is my understanding prior to the Senate Bill becoming law the policy under McRaven was concealed handguns could not be carried into classrooms, dormitories and other buildings..now if you have something different lets hear it.

You're correct.  He was opposed concealed carry on campus but once the law went into effect, UT had no choice but to follow the state laws.  He had a strong opinion regarding this matter but at no time did he implement or enforce a new policy based on his personal agenda.  He and UT are simply following state law.  You said "during his tenure he made policy changes (like a good liberal) he concealed handguns on campus and he was for allowing illegal immigrants in the country to pay cheaper, in-state tuition."  I'm saying he made NO such changes, the politicians did regarding the concealed carry and Texas DREAM Act.  So yes he had a strong opinion regarding on campus conceal carry ... but having an opinion and implementing his own policies are two different things.  Now if your point is he has liberal/progressive/etc, etc views regarding the two laws I've mentioned then I concur.

You forgot to add the opening that shows someone whose judgement and personal associations disqualify him for the trust that a security clearance requires and the president should honor his request and pull his clearance immediately.....Dear Mr. President: Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.For that alone McRavens clearance should be revoked...Brennan was caught red-handed lying about the CIA spying on Congress.

Not just good leadership ... McRaven is a decorated Navy SEAL. SEAL Team 6 operator and commanded at every level of spec ops.  Did you even know this guy was "Bull Frog" until 2011?  You probably don't even know what that is.  And what is your point with what he did at UT?  Texas passed the concealed carry law and the UT campus conceal carry laws are in accordance with Texas law.  The Texas DREAM Act passed in 2001 allows illegal aliens to pay in state tuition.  So what policy CHANGES are you referring too?  He didn't make those policy changes, the state politicians did.  Sounds like you're full of sh*t.

My two cents ... despite all the hype from crypto promoters and crypto evangelists, there still is virtually nothing holders of bitcoin or any other crypto currency can do besides trade it.  They have no practical utility in traditional markets and/or in daily commerce.  Buy, hold and pray is no option here.

I want to stop legal immigration. Not just from central American countries but from everywhere. We may be the best nation in the world but we do have our flaws. It's like when you're a kid, and you ask can a friend stay over, and your parents say it's not a good weekend. Maybe the house is dirty. Maybe there are family matters going on. Maybe, simply, it's just not a good time to entertain. We need to clean our own backyards, scoop up all the dogshyt, mop our own kitchens, vacuum our own carpets, pay somr overdue bills, before we worry about inviting over guest. Let alone, taking in borders. For example, maybe we stop taking in foreign students into our University system. Do you realize how many east asians, indians, and middle easterns make up our college campuses? Maybe we close our borders to them while also working on closing the education gap. Do you realize how many of our doctors, our engineers, are foreign born or first generation. We're so busy fighting these imaginary white vs. black, liberal vs. conservative battles that we don't even see the writing on the wall. And don't think for a minute that our politicians care. Not even the right-wing America first politicians. All they see is green. They couldn't care less about if your pension will be worth a damn when it's time to collect it or if your kid is gonna go to college. These political parties have us fighting over which one cares about us and neither does. They only care about the rich. And i'm not just talking about those who are well off. I'm well off. Many of us in this forum are well off. I'm talking the uber rich. All you #MAGA folks, Donald Trump cares more about Hillary Clinton than he does you. Believe it. And all you bleeding heart liberals, the inverse of that is true as well. Hillary cares more about the Don, and rich people like him, than she does you. Remember.... They live. We sleep.

Halting legal immigration until the U.S. gets its house cleaned up?  Is that your analogy?  When in the history of this country has it ever had its house in order?  You might as well say you don't want legal immigration PERIOD.  Cause your analogy ain't realistic.  Giving unrealistic terms to reinstate legal immigration is foolish and a waste of thought.
