    Dave Wilder saga takes another interesting turn

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Nov 18, 2011 -> 02:37 PM) http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-11-18/w...kback-case.html The plot ensnared 23 players December 2004 to February 2008, according to the government. The players’ names haven’t been made public. The White Sox won the World Series in 2005. The above is bad writing, in my opinion. It certainly suggests that the plot had something to do with players that helped the White Sox win the World Series in 2005.
  2. I figure it's for being so giving to other teams by not going overslot in the draft...

    QUOTE (Milkman delivers @ Nov 16, 2011 -> 01:43 PM) Yes, another perfectly-timed plot contrivance. That's definitely what this show would do. As soon as they killed Tom Arnold's character, my first thought was exactly this. Like others, I'm glad Opie is finally unleashed; at least, I hope he is. Last night's episode had some good moments, but there's no way it needed to be 90 minutes.

    Good to get wins against potential wildcard teams (e.g., Atlanta, Philly)

    Bears could easily have had a couple more INTs tonight.

    QUOTE (fathom @ Nov 7, 2011 -> 11:06 PM) 3rd and one and you try a very difficult pass? Awful playcalling I hate that playcall. You've been run blocking well all day, so get the yard and keep driving.

    It's not just the drops; it's the drops on the big plays. At least Bennett can catch.

    Bears playing delightfully physical on defense. They gotta be careful for the personal fouls in the 2nd half.

    Maclin looked like he should have been wearing white on that play.

    Some pretty seriously bad football being played here. Bears better take advantage.

    Two catchable uncaught balls and a fumble... great job with less than 2 minutes in the half.

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Nov 7, 2011 -> 09:48 PM) i'm glad I overspent on Vick in my fantasy league. f***ing Matthew Berry I hope I'm wrong, but I think the Bears need 24 points to win tonight. The offense needs to stay on the field so the defense can be high energy when out there.

    QUOTE (bigruss22 @ Nov 1, 2011 -> 12:49 AM) So Ive been talking a bit about with my manager about my start time for once I graduate, so that we can both plan things out. I want to, and he's encouraging heavily, for me to pursue my MBA part time as soon as I can, like within a year of undergrad graduation to be enrolled. That said, has anyone here taken the GMAT? How many study hours do I need to plan on? Good resources to buy? And while we are on the subject, what opinions do you guys ahve about the B-schools in Chicago? Obviously Kellogg and Booth are top in the country, but for part time (and a more reasonable expectation) I've heard decent/good things about Depaul/Loyola/UIC. They also cost less than half of Kellogg (I could afford the extra cost, but for going within a year out of undergrad that means I would be living at home for awhile ). I agree with bmags on going back that early...but if the company is pushing for it, I guess I'd consider it. Maybe I missed it, but will the company help pay at all? GMAT isn't too bad. Take a lot of practice tests and work on your weaknesses. IMO, the hierarchy of the MBAs in Chicago is Chicago/Northwestern, then DePaul/UIC, then Loyola. (Although I admit that I haven't really looked at this in awhile, and I think UIC has ramped up their program) It really depends on your career path and who is paying. Who wouldn't like to have an MBA from Chicago or Northwestern? I got into U of Chicago and DePaul and choose DePaul since it was more flexible and less expensive. DePaul's part time MBA has traditionally been rated pretty high, but I admit I haven't looked at the rankings in awhile. All in all, I was extremely pleased with my education at DePaul as well as the chance to network (I went back to change to a different area/industry).
  23. If anyone is watching the Tennessee game, Rodgers just had one of the worst drops you'll see. A TD pass right through his hands....you just have a feeling the game is going to turn on that.
