    The next three weeks are the most important for PSU since their 1982 National Championship Run. Coach Franklin has done one hell of a job with the program since the boy-rapist and his BFF Paterno destroyed the place. Coach Franklin is to be highly commended, even from this PITT grad.

     

    So, let’s get on with it, shall we?

    ‘Bama, PSU, UGA, and TCU remain undefeated and are the top 4. These are the playoff teams right now. The top 3 don’t play each other this season and control their destiny.  I don’t see TCU making into the playoffs so that leaves a spot for a one loss team provided the top 3 win out…provided the top three win out, well, given the way this season is going that won’t happen either.

    My beloved and very pathetic PITT Panthers are getting 8 points at Duke. This is so sad. The program is i disarray and the alumni are sad. I don’t even want to make a prediction on this but I will. The Blue Devils Beat the spread.

     

    Tennessee

    3:30 PM

    The Vols have to travel to Bryant-Denny Stadium to face the Tide. Vols are getting a ridiculous 36 points in Reno. I would like to think that the Vols can beat that spread.

    This is a classic rivalry and is always a great game, so much history here between these two teams. USC is getting 3 at the Touchdown Jesus. The Bruins are the underdog here. Their offensive line is decimated. USC will win this and QB Darnold will show why he will be playing on Sundays.

    #19 Michigan

    7:30 PM

    This is another classic game with a ton of history. PSU will win at home. I should be able to hear the fans at Happy Valley from my house some 150 miles away. M is getting 10 on the road and I think the game will be closer. M covers.

    The 2017 Idiot Wind Awards Nominations – Frederica Wilson

    You’ve already heard the story as told by Florida Democrat Frederica Wilson. She claimed she eaves-dropped on a private phone conversation between the President of the United States and the widow of a fallen warrior. Wilson alleges that the POTUS took time out of his busy schedule to call the widow in order to give her a load of sarcastic crap about how her husband deserved it for volunteering to serve in the military in the first place. Pheeeew

    Not even Maxine Waters (D California) could have coughed up and spat out a bigger loogie and danced on it, but Ms. Wilson did.

    The Florida Democrat who criticized President Donald Trump this week for being “insensitive” toward the widow of a U.S. soldier slain in Africa might be facing similar criticism herself.

    It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to VoteSmart.org, a vote-tracking site whose founding board members included former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.

    The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill that could have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits. [Source, via.]

    Congrats, Ms. Wilson. You’ve just earned a solid nomination for The 2017 Idiot Wind Award.

    The other day, I was examined the contents of the digestive tract of Giant isopod who died.

    Color is black, different impression until now.

    Weight of stomach contents is 128.5g, because body weight was about 1000g, you pretty now that it was at once ate a large amount of food for the body weight.

    In texture you whether referred to as a “massive”, “soggy” This time, such as the internal organs of something if from the color feel of the … squid?

    Smell is stronger, but because it was unexpectedly pond likely feel it when I smell, I tried to make sure the taste is a little lick.

    Not surprisingly unpleasant, here also certainly (such as, for example, Ayu visceral salted “Uruka”) taste like salted fish visceral.

    Even I feel taste.

    When you leave for a while and left at room temperature (22 ℃), so went more and more soluble in muddy, I felt that you are self-digestion. Do Will contains a large amount of enzyme.

    After that, I was a survey of solid was strained with a net, but this time in as long as it was confirmed by eye scales of fish are not included at all, there was still many just squid beak.

    According to the GoDaddy geeks, we should have a new security certificate, be no longer black-listed, and, from my end, be up to almost full operation….with some things disabled for now. The old comments are still in limbo. I will call GoDaddy tomorrow to set them free.

    I intend, over the winter, to re-design this website into something more cohesive. It’s code and ad-ons over ten years is not working as well as I would like.  That said, to add to my otherwise absurd schedule, I will be starting yet another Master’s program November first. So, any help with posts would be greatly appreciated as would any help with a re-design using a standard WordPress template.

    Thanks for yinzes patience.
