    2018 catch-all

    Did you guys fight it? I know they just allocated $350 million for a new program that is geared towards people that were denied loan forgiveness because they didn't make their payments under the right plan. You may want to check that out: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/public-service/temporary-expanded-public-service-loan-forgiveness I know for certain my wife's loans qualify and all of our payments qualify. It's just terrible record keeping on their part. Theoretically I can come up with proof of every single payment over the last 10 years via bank records, so if I have to that's what I'll do. It's a good chunk of change I was looking forward to not paying.

    2018 catch-all

    Has anyone applied for the public service loan forgiveness program? If so, have you had any issues? My wife is trying to do it now. Our 10 year payoff window is next September. We certified her employment and got her loans put into the fedloan servicing program last year, but the initial statement claims that she had only made 27 qualifying payments out of the 120 required, which is not correct at all. Since then we've made probably another 12 payments and her monthly statement still says she has only made 27 qualifying payments. Calling their customer service line does nothing. All they can do is request an audit and they claim it takes 6 months to complete (how fucking hard is it to look up payment history?) We're re-certifying her employment status again, so hopefully they get it figured out. The government, as usual, is the absolute worst.

    ha, way off So the Clippers he could potentially join Kawhi and the NY teams he can join up with Kyrie. And get paid.

    LA is the obvious destination. Clippers? Sixers? Rockets? Can't imagine the Bulls are an option

    Urban Meyer with another awful press conference. This time arguing that he's the hero trying to help a troubled guy. His mistake is caring too much. What an embarrassment.

    Your new Supreme Court nominee is....

    But if her intent was to warn people about Kavanaugh, why send the letter under a different name, and why tell Feinstein to keep it private? Get the story out there, with a name and with the details. She's a smart woman. She knew anonymous accusations wouldn't be enough. Feinstein and/or her office let all this slip out. It was strategic. They're using this woman for political purposes.

    Your new Supreme Court nominee is....

    So 2.5 months ago she wanted to remain private, but now she's willing to testify. I wonder why. I wonder what changed. I wonder what was about to happen. I'm all for an investigation if it seems warranted. Postpone the vote too if necessary. But questioning someone's motives (and those behind her) based on timing is not ignoring/attacking the victim.

    Jesus this is a terrible take. Complaining about the politicization of the issue is not ignoring the victim. And yes, it's highly fucking suspect that she happens to come out days before his confirmation vote when he was selected by Trump as his SC nominee 2.5 months ago. You and I both know some congressional aide somewhere found her, interviewed her and then sat on this until this precise moment to bring it up because of the political points it would win, not because they wanted justice. You can point all that out without "blaming the victim." I'm not really sure when the pendulum swung so far that now instead of presuming innocence we presume guilt. Every woman is to be believed 100% of the time. They are accusations. People can, and do, make shit up. That doesn't mean you discount every accusation, but it also doesn't mean you accept it as 100% truth. Questioning this woman (and the people helping her) and the timing of her accusations =/= attacking her.

    I debated buying it but I feel like having watched 3-4 Woodward interviews and reading some of the stories on the book's revelations, I've already seen/read most of whats in the book.

    Agreed. I think it was a minor bone bruise or knee sprain and the Packers are just using this to their advantage while also hyping up Rodgers' legacy (though the latter part is more on the media and fans taking the story and running with it). If he tore anything there's 0% chance he plays another minute in that Bears game. No way the Packers are going to jeopardize the next 4-5 years for one measly win over the Bears.

    I don't want to overreact in a negative way because it was the best half of football i've seen from the Bears in years, HOWEVA, let's take a look at what actually happened: (1) a really good first drive on the first drive of the season for a unit that didn't play in the preseason. A LOT of that success was due to the fact that GB had no idea WTF the Bears were doing. After about two drives all of that went away and the offense became the same average-or-worse offense from last year. (2) While Mack is an all-NFL talent, it's a lucky break that he stifled a GB drive (in which they marched down the field and were nearing a TD) with that strip fumble, and then the interception for a TD. (3) GB played that half without Rodgers for a big chunk of it.

    I'm sure that was by design so that they could win the time of possession battle and keep the ball out of Rodgers' hands.

    Try 25-30. The problem for me is that those other guys clearly have the tools to sling it around the field. They may be off one game, they may have some issues reading defenses or calling audibles or whatever to get the best matchup, but at the end of the day they have other worldly arm talent to march you down the field and win a ball game for you. Sometimes that talent burns you (Cutler) but odds are that type of QB is going to be more successful than the dink and dunk game manager. Through about 13 games now Trubisky looks like Grossman before he hurt his ankle - elusive, decent speed, good around the pocket, can make one or two throws but otherwise average, average, average. I had zero confidence that he was going to get the Bears into field goal range because he just can't make the throws when the pressure is on. Totally agree. This is the same Bears team we've seen for decades - solid defense, solid run game, shitty QB = 6 to 9 wins, no playoffs.
