    Anything farther than 5 yards past the line of scrimmage was rough for him.

    Offense has been pretty bad since the first quarter.

    Man I hope they are consistently near this level of play. If the offense improves we are definitely talking playoffs. Long season ahead but didn’t think I was would be this excited for it!

    Mack...so good
  7. Yea that's just brutal, feel so bad for the kid.
  8. Well I wasn't expecting a bowl season but a terrible outing against Kent St has me very worried about this season. Still think 4 wins is the goal, but with these suspensions that may be really tough. Illinois' o-line needs another year, too many mistakes/lack of strength.

    Gun Violence in America

    That video is so damn crazy. I haven't read much on the situation yet, was there a motive or just general craziness?

    GoFundMe in lieu of health insurance?

    I definitely don't have all the details worked out, it's just an idea of having a tiered system. I don't have the numbers but I would imagine it would be less of a price shock to Americans if we continue to use a deductible type system (or some alternative). If we cap out of pocket expenses to a couple thousand per person like most insurance plans then we are getting to such a better spot. Is it everything I would want to see? No, but it's huge progress.

    GoFundMe in lieu of health insurance?

    I've always believed that universal health care provides a basic health care package. It helps prevents the bankruptcy cases and over usage of emergency rooms, etc. But if you want better healthcare, lower deductibles, etc then you pay for a private or public plan that sits on top of your basic plan, like a tiered system or something.

    2018 Democrats thread

    I've never really understood the glorification of the "I've worked 3 jobs to support my family, so should be able to do X". While I love seeing someone put in the effort and determination to get ahead, why should it take 3 jobs to get ahead? Can't there be a better way to support those people who want to work for a better life?
