  1. And have down-to-the-wire games with inferior opponents week after week. BC himself points out time and time again that Herman is a magician at preparing and delivering in the spotlight games, when his team is the underdog, but week-to-week and when they are the favorite they consistently underperformed. This shouldn't be anything new to anyone who has watched Texas play the last two years, or followed Herman's time at Houston, that is Herman's (too this time, very short sample size as a HC) team MO. Trying to statistically model a team that is so schizophrenic is not easy.
  2. Are you dense? You do realize the majority of those employees work in FCs, ie they are blue-collar warehouse workers? If not there, in another part of the logistics arm. If their primary goal was to extract as much benefits from governments to build places to ship existing employees they would have chosen the places that were offering even more incentives. Amazon's primary objective was growing a presence in markets where existing talent is located, and centers that have the amenities to continue to attract talent. They can't hire any more people in certain fields in Seattle, they just don't exist. Plus they can hardly get people to move to Seattle, because it's Seattle (weather kills them for people not from PNW).
  3. I would guess a very high majority of those figures will be new hires of local talent (95%+). Of course they will send some established executives to lead teams/divisions, but Amazon isn't shipping people out of Seattle to stock up these new offices.
  4. What exactly are you talking about? One of the biggest factors in the CodeNEXT debacle was the ANC/preservationist/NIMBY wing of connected and concerned citizens that for the last few decades controlled the direction of Austin politics. Adler attempted to walk a tight rope in his "bargain" or "compromise" or whatever dumb thing he labeled it, in trying to update the code while also giving the anti-growth forces things he thought would placate them into supporting a code rewrite. The result was an ever-growing, ever worse CodeNEXT document that got longer, more confusing and in my view worse (and drastically more toward the status quo we have now) which each draft. These same people then also used the petition and Prop J to try to further hinder any ability to make land use changes. Unless you are referencing a different group of people/stakeholders, in which case, I again ask, who are you talking about?
  5. Haha. If you want that from this coaching staff you'll need to pony up a few million more. And they will need 10 more QC assistants.
  6. They don't have to be that fast. I can guarantee the Iowa State guys wouldn't meet your qualifications for speediness. Playing fast and being fast are two very different things.
  7. That said, Iowa State doesn't seem to have the gaping hole at line backer that Texas has. But the recipe for giving that offense fits is in a well executed 3 man front, multiple quarters look.
  8. For those hating on the 3-down look, you do realize this is the exact recipe Iowa State used to destroy the very same offense Texas faced today: https://www.footballstudyhall.com/2018/10/19/17999866/how-iowa-state-obliterated-west-virginia-matt-campbell-dana-holgorsen-will-grier-pump-fake-purdy
  9. Buy a $20 or so screen and fix it to trade it in. Should be an hour of work for $280 in net payoff. I am dusting off my old cracked OPO to fix it for this very reason.
  10. If they are going to in-house made tortillas I will stop my smear campaign against them.
  11. We can just hope other teams don't watch the OSU and both Maryland game films and get any wise ideas about how to attack an Orlando defense on the ground.
  12. Not near as stupid as taking a TO with you to halftime when you HAVE THE BALL at midfield. The strategy and execution of the particular onside we can all agree was trash. But giving yourself an extra 20 percent chance of getting the ball back isn't something I would get super pissed about.
