    Reading a few speculative reports that Braxton may transfer to another school, namely Texas for his senior season.

    Too many Braxton supporters on here for me to really state my opinion, but I think it might be a smart move for him anyways.

    Even though the Jury Room wasn’t my favorite Liz diner in terms of food, menu, and atmosphere, it was probably the one that I ate at the most due to location. Sad to see it go, and glad to hear that a new diner is going in at the same location. Will be interested to check it out once it reopens.

    My opinion: Start Barrett on QB and switch Braxton to RB.

    OR: Run some kind of funky combo offense where both switch off and you never know who’s going to throw it. How fun would that be to watch?

    It would make for one interesting option. As long as Barrett was running it, I’m all for it. Even Guitton ran the option better than Braxton last year according to his own coach.

    For what it’s worth… When I see a “non attractive” CEO, I typically think wow that man/woman must be extremely good at their job.

    Had the story mentioned her beauty and tried to prove that she wasn’t the stereotypical attractive CEO, then I think said statement would have had value. The way it was written, no. Actually made me feel like she was more along the lines of the stereotype.

    I know many will disagree with me, but I would play Barrett next year over Braxton.

    Sounds like I have some takers on that bet.

    Wait? How many diapers are found littered along roads, waterways, in the trees, etc etc etc…. I find a plastic bag in my yard on nearly a daily basis. Have yet to find a discarded diaper. Occasionally see one in a parking lot or somewhere random sure, but there’s hardly a comparison.

    Right now I will bet anyone on this board a thousand dollars I can find at least 20-30 on my property right now when I get home.

    Seriously. Give me some sort of real reason on why free plastic bags with your groceries is a vital part of human life.

    So your real bitch is with litter, which apparently threatens your very existence since we’re talking “vital parts of human life” here.

    I’ve never found a plastic bag in my yard, but the occasional bits of paper receipts, the odd can or such.

    Maybe I missed something, but Isn’t that the real reason they are being banned across the country? Combined with the fact that they will never biodegrade of course. Are plastic bags life threatening to humanity? Eventually yes.

    If plastic bags aren’t blowing into your yard, then I’m not sure how. Unless you have the most barren landscaping possible I’m sorry but I simply do not believe this.

    That’s my gauge though. I’ve seen the research on this, and I see the proof in my own back yard. 100% fine with the ban.

    Ummmmm… you think you won’t still be able to buy some generic grocery style bags for your “necessary” uses????

    Right now I recycle mine as dog poop bags. The idea apparently is I should buy some other grocery bags, remember to carry them around, then go buy some other doggie bags.

    Not the end of the world, but more of a hassle. More progressive busybodies clamoring to make life just that much more difficult.

    Don’t get me wrong, I feel your pain. We have a baby in the house and save every plastic bag for the wrapping of diapers so they don’t stink up the house after disposal. Not to mention the countless other things we use them for. We’ll still be buying some form of grocery bags for household use I’m sure.

    Guess my point is I’m more than willing to give this convenience up for the greater good.

    Again, I think recycling across the nation should be mandatory. I’m much more concerned in curbing/fixing of the depletion of resources and waste buildup at this given time, than I am… say alternative energy sources.

    Progressives sure love to ban things.

    Like marriage equality and illegal immigration?

    Illegal immigration? lol, that doesn’t even make sense.

    I just don’t see any other way of fixing the plastic bag issue unless we get rid of them all together. Yes they are very convenient but they aren’t a necessary part of our every day lives.

    You mean aren’t a necessary part of your every day life.

    Fully believe that mandatory recycling should be a national law.
    If cans/bottles were worth more like in other states, even if discarded as litter, there would be more initiative for others to pick them up. Which would help fix that issue.

    Seems to be the norm every time we have a festival of some sort in the city.

    Was just about to say… campus has more cheap watering holes than they ever had when I first arrived here in the city 15 years ago. Sure a couple of the old dive bars have been closed, and most of the newer bars have more of chain feel to it, but if you are looking for “cheap” happy hour specials campus is a great place to find them.

    Right now if campus is lacking on something, it’s the night club style venues. For the past 15 years campus has always had a large night club type of venue, and I could be wrong… but nothing is coming to mind right now on what/where is filling that void. Multiple reasons come to mind on why this has happened, but it definitely causes students to have to leave campus to scratch that itch. Short North / Arena District is the closest area that can provide that type of entertainment.

    At this point the kid has no choice but to sue. Revoking is scholarship, tagging his record with an M4 or more… come on. Do one or the other but not both. That’s trying to severely alter this kids life over something so stupid and petty as running down the football field… fully clothed I might add.

    Now if he were going to sue over the tackle after receiving a slap on the wrist, then ya… screw that… but no. I don’t blame him for suing.
