    Dodgers and Padres chasing SP at trade deadline: Jose Barrios https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-trade-rumors-dodgers-padres-pursuing-jose-berrios-yankees-pirates-make-a-trade/amp/
  5. Some strange picks on that preseason list. I don't see a Chip Kelly WR, much less a UCLA Chip Kelly WR, making first team. UCLAs TE is probably the most productive TE in the nation. But I'm assuming talent is higher with other players? Which makes Rhyan only getting second team, odd. Not much else to say because we apparently don't have anyone worthy of first or second team on D.
  6. Comes out of the amount of debt collected.
  7. So Oregon is one of the states that allow debt collection on school lunch debt, but it does not allow collection fees to be passed to families, so a district will be paying that money up front to any agency it contracts with, with no guarantee of recouping it. While I’m not contending they would lose money on the endeavor, they’re also unlikely to recoup enough to overcome the public outcry that results from such a ghoulish tactic.
  8. Just sell the debt to debt collectors and get a few cents on the dollar without any expense to the district.
  9. So my mom has actually been a Nutrition administrator for a local school district for about a decade and a half. It’s her experience that districts go to great lengths to provide parents everything they need to apply for free or reduced lunch programs through the NSLP, short of forging parent signatures on the actual forms. The reason is simple: it is virtually impossible for a district to collect on breakfast/lunch debt anymore. Gone are the days where districts hold any sort of leverage over parents (my HS diploma was going to be held because I had an unpaid $3 library fine — that isn’t happening in 2021). Districts eat an ungodly amount of money each year. Her district has been self-op for several years (as opposed to hiring an outside conglomerate to provide everything) and as ruthless has the pandemic has been in so many areas in her field, one of the rare silver linings has been instead of devoting what little resources she does have with pleading with parents to pay their kids’ debt, she’s able to shift that wasted time to strategic meal planning. Some of the menus they’re coming up with now just blow the school meals of my childhood out of the water. The variety and nutritional values are unbelievable, it’s crazy what skilled professionals are able to do when they’re allowed to do their jobs free of needless bullshit.

    Lol, says it all. Unless I’m missing something this appears to be a reach (long long reach) for SP help.
  11. USC is just leveraging at this point unless the B1G doesn't care about the P12. I will assume that is true in this case and USC might get a concession from the P12 when it comes to conference payouts. OU & UT are pretty close to the Deep South region which all 14 SEC schools...maybe except Vandy and it's more of a natural fit than you would think. BU, TCU, TT, and OSU to Pac-12. This is something the P12 needs to do and doing this will get the P12 solidly into DFW. This will give the PAC a chance to survive any future moves. Getting only two will not be enough in this case. I don't think we will need Houston in this case because it is solidly in the hands of the SEC. KU & ISU to the B1G. This step will dissolve the Big 12 regardless of WVU going to the ACC first or after the B1G move since there are 8 schools that have moved and you need 75% to dissolve a Delaware corporation which the Big 12 is (and also many other conferences). WVU to the ACC. Bless their hearts for sticking out like this. KSU to AAC. Starting a rivalry with the Shockers of Witcha is something to look forward to. The Wildcats will not lose access to DFW this way. MWC is not the answer for them.
  12. Just send Joe’s $300 a month to the school and let the school deduct the price of the school lunch and breakfasts and send the rest to the parents. Easy
  13. Anything that will fuck a poor family, right?

    My thoughts similar. We basically got no added value and strengthened division leader. Unless the Nationals want what we got from the Astros and we’re going for Scherzer

    I’m in the same boat. I don’t *hate* it, but it’s a perplexing move when we’re only 1.5 games back and we gave up the best player in the deal. For the most playoff-starved team in major North American sports, it’s hard to swallow gearing up for 2022 when we’re playing so damn well right now. In a vacuum, it’s also weird to me that this was the best return we could get for arguably the best closer on the market. The Astros, meanwhile, might have the best 8/9 inning guys in baseball now.

    GL, enlighten me. This makes no sense.

  20. the beauty of amateur college athletics is watching March Madness where a tiny unknown school in #16 seeded UMBC plays an overall #1 seed Virginia and on that night things break a certain way and #16 stuns #1. We love that, we're conditioned to love an underdog. We write stories about it, we make movies about it. Hell, even the Bible highlights some of these underdog accounts. Whatever the SEC is doing with Texas/OU is a strategy completely opposite of that. Its giving Clark Griswold a subscription to the Jelly of the Month club instead of his normal Xmas bonus. Its Goliath stomping David. Its Rudy never getting to see the field at Notre Dame. It will kill college athletics.
  21. Well, maybe we have a different understanding of the term "regional." What i mean by regional is local, geographically contiguous and familiar, like the northwest schools (UW, WSU, UO, OSU). If some of this realignment goes through, we will have Texas and OK in the same conference with Florida, USC/UCLA in the same conference with Rutgers, Oklahoma State in the same conference with UW ... those are no longer conferences based on regional relationships IMO.
