Also, that's awesome. Vizios are some of the best tvs for the money. I have the 55" LG LED. It's ok. I wouldn't say it's worth how much it is, but it's definitely a good tv.

I hate the NCAA with a burning passion. USC appealed to have their penalties reduced by the NCAA because Penn State had theirs reduced. The NCAA denied the appeal and stated that "there is no comparison" between the two. You're right NCAA, there isn't.

you guys might laugh but dlp's are better then LCD's

I have a 55" LG LED in my family room, my bro has a 50" Panasonic LCD at his house and they all pale in comparison to our 73" Mitsubishi 3d dlp tv. They're bigger for sure (I think at the widest, the base, it's like 16 inches) but there really not bad in terms of size. The only draw back is that they all seem to have similar problems with the light engine which is pretty damn expensive to fix. But starting prices are cheap enough that you can afford to get a nice long warranty.

maybe it depends on the tv, but my brother has a dlp and it looks like garbage.

The NCAA can't collapse fast enough.

Having Lane Kiffin as a head coach is punishment enough IMO.

It's coming soon. Once the SEC, B1G, ACC, & Pac-12 scoop up the rest of the bcs caliber schools to form mega conferences & break away from the NCAA.

I actually felt bad for the guy when Al Davis took his job & dignity away from him but as the years went on I realized the guy is just a ******* on top of being a terrible coach.

USC has a terrible o-line & qb but everything else is either good or great, a competent coach could squeeze 9-10 wins out of that team. The scholarships are a poor excuse IMO. The talent is still there even without them. Kiffin is just that terrible.

Is it a Mitsubishi? I'm on my second (different models and size) and they were both great.

I wonder if the Volunteer fans down in Tennessee are still waiting on him to sing "Rocky Top."

I can't believe I used to watch that garbage. In my defense it was never this bad when I did.

Last time I watched it the most intriguing prop they used was a ladder.

Haha take it from someone who's slowly getting backing into it, it's getting better than it was the last 10 years! But yes whatever that was was...stupid. Smackdown has kind of taken the roll of the throwaway show on Friday nights, and RAW is "king" again. But the storylines...have potential. I'm sure the writers will screw it up though. Funny thing is, there are several huge names not wrestling because of injuries/contracts, and there are a lot of smaller names getting major pushes from it.

Upthread I noted how I made the switch to FIOS from Comcast because of a deal and was content thus far although apart from the internet I hardly watch TV until hockey season. Anyway, I'm not so sure now that I'm getting a better deal for my services. I've got the prime HD triple play package and with all my discounts, fees and taxes pay $110 p/mo. I had a better triple play package with Comcast..more channels which included NHL Network, Starz, Encore etc but did pay about $135 to 140 p/mo. This also included 20 MBPS internet though vs FIOS 15/5. I think before I made the switch to Verizon, Comcast was going to give me the same package for about 120 p/mo for 6 months.

I didn't have a DVR with Comcast nor with Verizon but at least I had Comcast on demand so that I could catch the Flyers game if I missed it. Verizon doesn't have this capability right? Can't watch replays ? I basically have to DVR the games if I'm going to miss any hence requiring DVR service?

Basically, I have to upgrade my FIOS to match what I had with Comcast so no savings would be realized other than having FIOS's equipment installed and getting a new modem/router for free..also a $300 prepaid card

Foiled by the duopoly....

No idea, but it sucks regardless. Left a pretty big legacy.

Anyone here play guitar or know someone that does? I have an amp and 2x12 guitar cab I'm selling. Amp's in mint condition, the cab is in really good condition.

EDIT: To give you an idea about price/quality/sound, it's Mesa Boogie stuff. Probably should have said that originally.

PM me the model, preferably a link to a music store or something. And price!

Bought a new car at the end of July in Wynnewood and I live in New Jersey. Got a letter in the mail from the State of New Jersey saying that I didn't pay tax on my car. Literally $0.00. When in fact I paid the tax on the car. Why can't anything ever work correctly? I'm sure this is going to be a long and tedious process.
