Re: ICE: Foreign Students Must Leave The U.S. If Their Colleges Go Online-Only This Fall

Definitely odd...in the 'Today I Learned' category, I learned that while citizens of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are all US Citizens, citizens of American Samoa are only US Nationals, not citizens.

Re: ICE: Foreign Students Must Leave The U.S. If Their Colleges Go Online-Only This Fall

Citizens of American Samoa are US Nationals (as opposed to citizens), but best I can tell they don't need a Visa to come to the US.

Re: COVID-19 - v2

Those were just two of a mountain load of things I could have used for examples. And I'll be honest; when someone says, "oh, if not for the tweets (or one thing or another), I would have no problem with him," I find that rather concerning. Concerning that its only ONE thing you take issue with when...

Re: For you insiders: Budget Fallout for Athletics?

I read where CU is cutting the cross country coach's salary by 30 percent. In fact, there is considerable doubt that cross country will even happen this fall. Problems with team travel and mass starts are significant issues. If a 7 person cross country team where runners are all breathing in one di...

Is Aunt Jemima actually getting removed? I thought the company unilaterally decided to change their stuff. Which is their prerogative if they so choose.

Re: OT: Could 2020 just end now!!!!!!

I agree that the Democratic party is responsible for slavery, KKK, etc. But in the 1860s, Democrats were conservatives, Republicans were liberals. So those of you that vote R today would be Democrats if you suddenly time traveled to 1860. Same as how in the 1770s conservatives were Tories. The guys ...

Wyokie, ragtime, bladerunnr: thank you for your explanations, those make a LOT more sense to me than the conspiracy theories I've seen flying around. Appreciate your point of view, certainly agree with what you guys are saying as well.

Ok I'll bite...I keep hearing people talking about "crushing our rights" and "keeping us in an unnecessary lockdown".

Re: '20-'21 Poke Hoops Recruiting Watch

Kenny is the type of player that might see a huge improvement under a coach like Linder. He's athletic and good at creating his own shot, wasn't great at making those shots (pct .336) though. But maybe a coach like Linder that puts such an emphasis on shooting skills might be able to work with him a...

With how people have lost their minds, I doubt there'll be a season with fans at games. Who knows if they'll have games at all? Heck, they'll probably cite "player safety" or some similar asinine Sh#t for not playing the games. Because one life lost is too much (even though people in their late tee...

Re: Houston Astros “cheating” scandal

• The use of Codebreaker continued into 2018 and not just at home games, but also on the road. Until this point, it was assumed that the Astros only used their system at home. This story suggests they used at least some version of it on the road.

Re: Houston Astros “cheating” scandal

I'm somewhat torn, on one hand what they did was definitely illegal. On the other, I'd bet every dime i have that they weren't the only team. To touch on what you said above. The cheating wasn't just at home, there is evidence that they cheated on the road as well. Finally, it is a HUGE advantage to...
