Thoughts/opinions beyond the unnecessary random guys at the end?




EDIT: We had three people not show up, so they autopicked.
Good team, you don't need to have four TEs on the roster, especially if there's only one starting spot. Even if there are two, a 4th is unnecessary unless both starters have the same bye week.

EDIT: Guessing at the league/roster structure, you SHOULD have more than 4 RBs. I'd drop a TE and pick up a RB.

We have a QB, three WRs, two RBs, a TE, a utility (QB, RB, TE or WR), a kicker, and a defense to start each week. The TE picks were right at the end, because there was nothing left at the RB spot. I honestly have no idea why we have 10 bench slots in this league.



I have no idea what I want to do with the utility slot, as I have plenty of players who are good enough to put in there. I'll probably just throw Roethlisberger in there.

Let's go VT!

In hopes that I will bring bad luck to them like I did for every team that I actively followed this weekend.

Dubinchuk doesn't like you anymore.
But I definitely agree. Now he dislikes me as well.


EDIT: Just saw the white text. Nevermind.

I'm confused. Are you agreeing with "Let's go VT" or the jinx on "Let's go VT"

Sorry, I read it while trying to figure out what the hell my homework is asking, and then just now realized the white text in your post.



I'd rather VT win than GT, as it's a "lesser of two evils" result for me. I despise everything about GT's football team.

Oh, I see. It's really a toss up for me rooting wise. I feel like VT will win, so I'm going against my gut.


In other unrelated news, during our trip to Disney, the irrigation decided it wanted to rip a hole in our yard. Luckily our neighbor turned it off, or our yard might literally have been gone when we got back.

I was at Magic Kingdom some Sunday. Only a little while during the extra hours though. I'd gotten everything there I wanted to do done already by going when it opened in the morning.

WVU has 2 more cream puffs in a row, that may put Geno Smith to 1000 yards passing in 3 games.

That was a good choice. I'm sure you noticed that it was PACKED during the extra hours. We tried to do the meh rides first(got there at 9:00) and Splash Mountain/Big Thunder Mountain/Space Mountain still had long waits. We did Space Mountain at 1:30 am, and I felt like I was going to pass out while waiting in line.

Today was the day to go to the parks. Every ride's wait time was at least cut in half.

Favorite attraction is Toy Story Arcade. Very fun, and gives you an arm workout.

This is exciting, first college football game of a school I attend.

Moe's Monday and a decent rivalry game, tonight's a good night.

Strong feelings about the University of Vermont. Interesting.

I just noticed I lost my spread ticket for this weeks college games.

Only game I got wrong was I picked Savannah State to cover the +67.5 points against Okie State.

They lost by 84

Kinda sad cause I even picked the Ohio upset of PSU. Oh well, next week will be better

WVU does eventually need to win a Heisman one of these days. I still think White would have deserved it over Tebow had WVU not choked that year, but this is as good a year as any to win one.

Barkley's the favorite, but so was Luck last year so you can never tell.

... I'd probably make a killing betting on college sports, but I don't do it for whatever reason.

I routinley make pretty good coin betting on football but games like those are straight up impossible to predict. I mean, how do you *NOT* take the team getting 67.5 points? I don't care if it's Appalachian State vs. Michigan, you can't not take the team getting that many points. imo anyway.

No doubt there. Would have fared so much better if he had come back for his senior season instead of listening to his "friends" that were all saying he was going to make mad money in the pros instead. Very well could have been a Randall Cunningham type NFLer instead of a guy that was out of major pro football (NFL and CFL) by age 25.

State Penn never played WVU after Major Harris ran all over them.

So I could use a little advice:

About a week and a half ago, I applied for a job at the PNC. The interview went well (IMO), and a couple days after that, I filed the paperwork for my bank account, tax forms, etc. Which to my understanding is a pretty good indication that you've got a job there.

I was then told that they would call me sometime in the following week to give me a better idea of what position I'd be filling (they still had another week of applicants), but if I hadn't heard anything by today, to give them a call at [insert number].

Well, I didn't get a call last week, so I tried calling them today and it's a number that's not associated with the PNC in anyway. I'm not sure if they gave me the wrong number or I wrote it down wrong. I'm thinking I should stop by the PNC and get this cleared up, but I'm really not sure how to approach that.

"Hey, I think you guys hired me a little while ago, but I'm not sure. Do I have a job here?"

I'd simply drop by and say "I think I may have written down the number to call about a possible job here incorrectly, can you verify the number I'm supposed to call?"
