“I'm not a Notre Dame fan but fair is fair. N D's schedule is ranked harder then Oregon's or Kansas State's. Both KS and ND played Oklahoma, KS barely won, ND dominated Oklahoma. ND has beat 3 top ten (when ND played them) teams, neither of the other two teams have done that. Oregon puts up lots of points, but they haven't played against a top ranked defense, and speaking of defense Oregon has a horrible one, they let USC score 51 points. Al;l this is why college football needs a championship tournament, so the best team has a chance to prove it on the field. If ND goes undefeated and doesn't play in the championship, it will be politics not talent that decides it.”

“Schedule isn't everything. It's also about coach rankings, computer rankings, top 25 wins, etc. Totally agree with a tournament!”

“oregon's first string play only a little over half of he game so as not to run the points up so much. In the game against cal, the first string defense didn't even travel with the team, staying in eugene to get healthier for the stanford game.”
“Kind of tough to correct the problems Bush created when you have Republicans in congress that obstruct the passage of any bill that would help the economy, because they're more concerned with regaining the White House and jumping back into the pockets of Koch brothers and other billionaires trying to buy and control our country.”

“President Obama had a Democrat-controlled Congress for the first two years of his term. But rather than focus on economy- and jobs-boosting measures with Pelosi and Reid in charge, when he could have gotten any piece of legislation he wanted, he instead got mired in a quixotic crusade for socialized medicine that ultimately cost him his House majority and very likely a second term.”
“Don't mean to be an alarmist, but it's obvious that the oil will not stop until the reservoir of oil is drained. The question is, are the oceans vast enough to handle that volume of oil without permanently damaging the environment. The fact that the government is not telling us anything about the plume of oil under the surface gives me goosebumps. How bad is it? Can anything be done at this point? The less information we're given, makes me think the problem is much worse then they are saying.........Just something to think about.”

“Another commenter, several days ago, brought up the fact that there are thousands of oil rigs out there - the question becomes, is this the "super-reserve" that is feeding them all? If so, there is no way to calculate the size of this disaster...
And Hurricane Season is almost here. Truth is stranger than Science Fiction now.”

“The problem is much worse. At least one group has pictures of a plume 10 miles long, 3 miles wide.
As for the amount in the field, here's what I found.
The field: 3,528 million barrels of oil (at 60 degrees F)
8,956 billion cubic feet of gas (at 60 degrees F and 15.025 psia)
Let's hope it doesn't run dry...otherwise...actually I can't even think about it.”
