Just because racism is real doesn't mean that race is, as odd as that formulation sounds. Race, insofar as it is a thing, is a cultural thing. Not a biological one. It's a creation of society. An excuse for treating people differently based on superficial differences that amount to very little. A fictitious "other."… » 10/10/14 2:21pm 10/10/14 2:21pm

In that second scramble, is he still doing pump fakes 15 yards beyond the line of scrimmage? Or is it just that his arms are so long that he looks like he's pump faking because he sees no reason to have to protect the ball and his arms are just all over the place? » 10/10/14 1:56pm 10/10/14 1:56pm

The trick here is that it's happening in the middle of the season and UGA is basically required to bench him in order to comply with the "spirit of full compliance." The NCAA has not mandated anything and to my knowledge no NCAA investigation is fully underway. Georgia benched him to avoid having to forfeit potential… » 10/10/14 1:22pm 10/10/14 1:22pm

I am not sure whether I consider Phantom Menace the best or second best of the prequels (Attack of the Clones is obviously the worst). On some level, I think it was a pretty good effort to start the saga over.

There's no amount of rationalization that says a public education should be contingent upon putting you body or brain in… » 10/10/14 9:19am 10/10/14 9:19am

It's a weird thing to want to do—lead people down the path of vegetarianism by having them eat vegetarian foods that not only look and kind of taste, but literally behave/bleed like meat. I mean, I get the impulse. People need to eat more vegetables—and most of us probably eat too much meat, but does this brand of… » 10/09/14 6:28am 10/09/14 6:28am

Well, we never really saw Obi-Wan's story—unless you're mainly counting Clone Wars. Obi-Wan probably should have been the protagonist of the Prequel trilogy, but Lucas decided to go the brilliant route of writing a three movie trilogy without anything resembling a main character/audience surrogate. » 10/09/14 6:18am 10/09/14 6:18am
