  1. WASHINGTON - A multi-billion dollar standoff between the nation's leading insurers and the restaurants, hotels, gyms and theaters that purchase their policies has spilled into some of the most powerful corridors of Washington, as both sides clash over who should foot the sky-high costs of the coronavirus outbreak. read more: https://m.stamfordadvocate.com/business/article/Hard-hit-restaurants-gyms-and-other-businesses-15218701.php
  2. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday he favors allowing states struggling with high public employee pension costs amid the burdens of the pandemic response to declare bankruptcy rather than giving them a federal bailout. “I would certainly be in favor of allowing states to use the bankruptcy route,” he said Wednesday in a response to a question on the syndicated Hugh Hewitt radio show. “It’s saved some cities, and there’s no good reason for it not to be available.” The host cited California, Illinois and Connecticut as states that had given too much to public employee unions, and McConnell said he was reluctant to take on more debt for any rescue. “You raised yourself the important issue of what states have done, many of them have done to themselves with their pension programs,” he said. “There’s not going to be any desire on the Republican side to bail out state pensions by borrowing money from future generations.” His statements set up a conflict with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said on Bloomberg Television Wednesday a “major package” of aid for state and local government will be in the next stimulus legislation considered by Congress. read more: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/mcconnell-says-he-favors-allowing-states-to-declare-bankruptcy/ar-BB1336bq
  3. A story of Mason Fine often retold is when he shoved newspaper in his sneakers to appear taller the first time he met then-North Texas offensive coordinator Graham Harrell. Fine jokes at how well he’s gotten at sharing that legend over the last four years — elaborating on smaller details each interview because of how many times he’s had to repeat it to reporters, fans and now, NFL scouts. “It’s just my story,” Fine said. “I know you and myself have read the same story over and over, but that’s life, and I can’t go back and change the story.” The story of Fine being too short to be a successful quarterback is not a tall tale. It’s been retold plenty, especially every time a new chapter begins, such as his current transition from college football player to NFL prospect. Fine has become calloused to answering the same questions about his height for the same article to be rewritten. But those close to him who have been by his side through this before are, quite frankly, worn out by that narrative. read more: https://www.tulsaworld.com/sports/high-school/no-tall-tale-while-those-around-him-are-tired-of-hearing-it-nfl-prospect-mason/article_17333e14-71ec-5a61-af88-4bd54ed36f12.html
  4. DENTON, Texas – Spring is a time of high hopes for hundreds of college football players wondering when and if their names will be called during the National Football League draft, and one Cherokee Nation citizen is definitely in the mix, according to pundits.Mason Fine, who in 2019 put the wraps on a spectacular career as quarterback for the University of North Texas, was expected either to be taken in the late rounds or ink a priority free agent contract.“I’m going to travel up to Peggs, Oklahoma, and watch the draft there while my dad is grilling me up some steaks,” Fine said. “I’m going to have a nice dinner, enjoy it and watch it from there.”In expectation of serious draft consideration, and before the NFL stopped player visits to follow social distancing guidelines, Fine was working with trainer Todd Durkin and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. read more: https://www.cherokeephoenix.org/Article/Index/124573

  6. Knowing that, they really shouldn’t even be in conversation.
  7. I hope Wren is on the phone with the AAC and doing whatever it takes to get us an invite. Merging back with the Belt would be a step back.
  8. I know everyone says it's no big deal and some of our fans even wish them well but for me, I don't want NT to become a revolving door. I guess that is what bothers me about these things. Doesn't anyone stick to their commitments anymore?
  9. Sadly I think you are right. And Trump can say that was not his intention at the press conference yesterday. He said they would try to get the money back from those that didn't need it but come on is that really going to happen?
  10. Yes, my crush in high school left me for the QB of the football team. I kept trying to get her back and she would have none of it. My mom told me once a woman makes up her mind its over. Same situation here I'm afraid.
  11. Happy for Jeff. THat's a lot of money for people like us.
  12. Tulsa coach is hanging on a shoestring right now. He will likely be replaced after this season.
  13. I think eveyone respects Dr. Fauci. But no man is perfect. He is not Jesus.
  14. This has been a position comprised mostly of walkons.
  15. Devastating. Just devastating. And not just to those in oil and gas. Many companies feed into it or service it. A lot of people I know in Houston are very concerned right now. 🙏
  16. DENTON – The Mean Green tight ends group figures to again be a big part of the offense in 2020. Under tight ends coach Adrian Mayes, fans will have the opportunity to see the continued development at the position when the season gets underway. We take a look at the tight ends room in this edition of position group breakdowns. "I am extremely excited about this youthful and talented group," Mayes said. "Jason Pirtle saw a large amount of time last season and really started to develop into the position midway through the season. I'm excited about his progress this offseason in the film room and excited for the product he will put out next fall. Guys like Kyleb Howell and Cole McCrary were guys that provided depth last season and have game experience, which is so valuable. The two upperclassmen have done a great job instilling what we preach in our program to the younger guys in the room and it has gone well. "I am looking forward to the challenge of getting the youth in the room up to speed and ready to play at a high level. Guys like Asher Alberding, Khatib Lyles, Christian Lee, Jake Roberts (who is coming in the fall) and Edward Bautista all are extremely athletic. How fast I can get these guys developed will be key for this group. "This unit is extremely competitive, hungry and excited to get back into the swing of things. They understand that there's competition within the room and I think they rise to the challenge every time they're number is called." Outgoing: The lone tight end on the roster to graduate from the 2019 is Kelvin Smith, who was a key fixture over the past four years at the position. In addition to Smith's departure, freshman Adam Duncan decided to transfer. Smith was banged up for the duration of his final season in Denton, and finished with just 14 catches for 93 yards last year in 11 appearances (seven starts). Throughout his career with the Mean Green, Smith was a versatile player at the position, providing a ton of unsung help as a blocker, but also finished his career with 77 catches for 705 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 15.0 yards per reception in 47 appearances (27 starts). Duncan did not appear in any games for the Mean Green after walking on ahead of the 2019 season. New Faces: There are two new faces with the program at tight end, including one who arrived on campus in January and another that will join the program in the fall. #84 Christian Lee – freshman –Friendswood, Texas (Friendswood HS) Lee was an early enrollee, and was rated a three-star prospect by 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. He was ranked as the No. 36 tight end in the country at the H position by ESPN and was No. 75 on Vype Houston's Hot 100 in the 2020 class. Lee was a first team all-district selection in 2019 after earning second team honors as a junior in 2018. As a senior last year at Friendswood High School, Lee caught 51 passes for 723 yards and five touchdowns, and scored twice more on the ground. As a junior, he made 37 catches and five scores. A stellar athlete that measures at 6'3" and 210 pounds, Lee played quarterback as a sophomore and also lettered in track and field. Jake Roberts – freshman – Norman, Oklahoma (Norman North HS) Roberts will join the Mean Green in the fall, and was also a three-star prospect, according to 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. He was ranked as the No. 20 player in the state of Oklahoma by 247Sports and the No. 36 tight end in the country at the Y position by ESPN. Roberts was a two-time district Offensive Player of the Year, was first team all-conference and all-district as a senior in 2019 and was named Norman North High School's Most Outstanding Student-Athlete. In 2019, Roberts caught 18 passes for 197 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Roberts, who measures at 6'4" and 235 pounds, also excels in the classroom as evidenced by being a member of the National Honor Society. "I feel like we have a great opportunity ahead of us this year and I can't wait to be a part of this team. Things are crazy right now, but I think that presents a perfect opportunity to better ourselves and gain an advantage with the work we put in during all of this. Coach Mayes has been great. I feel like I've learned a ton from him already [through the recruiting process].All the guys in the tight ends room seem really close and there are some great leaders. They have been really helpful to me throughout this process and I can't wait to get on campus and be a part of it."
