  1. I wouldn’t wish our Mitch on anyone.
  2. Well, the WV Republicans, instead of learning from last year, has doubled down and pretty much trying to dismantle public education in WV. Another strike at this point appears imminent. Here is is a brief synopsis After everything that went down last year, we were hopeful that our state had turned a corner and might actually get serious about investing in public education. Instead, Mitch Carmichael declared war on public education. He started by removing the Senate Education Committee chairman, and replacing him with Patricia Rucker. I was willing to wait and see how she would do, and my fears of a Devos wannabe were realized. Let’s rehash the reasons for the work stoppage last year: Fix PEIA...not even close to happening. Charter school & voucher legislation that will siphon resources and students away from public schools. Smaller class sizes. Attempts to weaken our union. So what do Rucker and Carmichael propose? Increase class size Legalize vouchers and charters Payroll legislation to protect us from our unions. Required loss of pay during work stoppage (not sure where this is headed. Days were made up we didn’t just get a freebie) And to help ensure we won’t have community support, they will ban athletic contests during a work stoppage instead of leaving it up to the county. Also in the bill is a provision to raise levy rates without putting it to vote. Not one WV teacher was consulted on this bill. Out of state charter school lobbyists were very much involved in crafting this bill. It made it out of Education Committee in less than 5 hours after legislators received it Friday. Pleas to be given time to review the bill and take it to constituents over the weekend were ignored. Several members removed their name from the bill in protest. Carmichael, knowing he didn’t have the votes in the Finance Committee, was able to bypass that and take it to the floor to vote today. There is currently no fiscal note attached to this bill. They have no clue the cost. This is very disheartening and is leading to a road none of us want to travel. They packaged this bill altogether, along with some good stuff like temporary money to PEIA and a pay raise. The goal is to divide us and also to turn public sentiment against us. Please don’t fall for it.

    The pool of money for the championship game in my league is 1100 between 1st/2nd place. For 3rd/4th the pool is 100. So the semifinals are your big money games. I took a 34.2 point lead into Monday night. I had no guys left and I knew it was gonna be tough because he has McCaffrey and Ingram. I kind of hoped doom would happen quickly. But nope, it went right down to the fumble out of end zone and McCaffrey gets 2 garbage dump offs and I lose by .7 points. Had to stay up late to witness the agony.

    @TEG that should be a penalty. And the one last night was way worse because the guy tried to stop it wasn’t like he was just driving him, he had to re-engage twice.

    TEG that blocking call wasn’t BS. It was one of the most boneheaded plays in program history. He ran that dude 10 yards out of bounds.
  6. Google Rockwool Ranson, WV. No it’s gotten older for exactly the reasons peter laid out. It’s been happening for decades this isn’t something that started or even accelerated during trump. I realize this news may come as a disappointment to you. Lol
  7. actually, by rule, you have to have 5 lineman. maybe julio could do that better than joe thomas.
  8. I don't know what to say, you're right, I can't name names, it doesn't make your stance any less absurd. Could the best middle school team beat the worst high school team? Could the best high school team beat the worst college team?
  9. there's not much reasoning to be had. yes, the browns suck, but they're nfl players. every one of them. and they're more physically mature. i'm surprised to see you debating the other side of this, almost feels like a troll attempt.

    no it's good advice. I would've followed it if finances weren't an issue for me.
