  1. just for fun...could anyone in this strength and conditioning thread run a 5K tomorrow? +1 Ray for sub-30min.
  2. in this more modern game (college lags behind NBA, but point stands)...I really wish we'd stop viewing this as a meaningful metric. a team of 6'4" wings can actively control the perimeter and deny entry to damn near anyone. not to say Zach shouldn't have been better around the rim with his touches.
  3. agreed. would like to see him work in minutes, but it's probably gotta be off the ball at this point. he's gonna have to get some of DJ's minutes, if this is going to be our style all year.
  4. I'll hire on merit. Tattoos...piercings...mohawk... really anything but a goatee. if you have a goatee just end things and make this a better world.
  5. fun fact: I've eaten A LOT of party drugs with Carl Sagan's son.
  6. watching it? no. talking about watching it as if anyone on a UNT message board might give a shit? absolutely.
  7. dude had the chance to play at a top 10 program BECAUSE of everything he gave here...and because he fulfilled his academic commitment to UNT. you want to be angry that he left, blame past administrations and ADs for their decision making, hires and priorities. a real UNT Basketball supporter will cheer against Gonzaga if and only if we play them in the tournament. Anyone hating on Ryan for his decision can Go Zag themselves with a rusty metal spike.
  8. ya. we need to re-train our police https://www.npr.org/2019/10/15/770381685/fort-worth-interim-police-chief-deeply-sorry-for-fatal-shooting
  9. crimea river, libs. right guys? interested to see just how far ver backwards some of you can get to defending to not just accepting but blatantly seeking foreign interference in a US election. bridge pose, or can you guys get into a full wheel?
  10. I'm curious then what you feel the appropriate verdict/sentence would be. Do you honestly believe the media and outside voices influenced this decision? (my thoughts on a policy of "shoot to kill" not withstanding) I think MGT's statement about her stating she shot to kill was just really bad optics/legal tactic. I don't think it was the deciding factor, but man...very bad lawyering. I'd also be curious to know DPD policy on a solo-officer entering an unknown, potentially dangerous situation.
  11. 1. definitely. but you know, back the blue/all lives matter and all that nonsense 2. which would you feel better with...murder+10 years or manslaughter+20? a murder verdict is a life-long punishment. when we start to parse out years on sentencing it starts to place a value of Jean's life and death rather than her punishment...like he are we happy with the value of his death set 20 years? 40? Hammurabi or GTFO? prison sentences are meant just as much for (attempted) rehabilitation as they are punishment and beyond personal demons, guilt, what-ifs...I don't think Guyger has much to rehab. I don't see malice and I don't see a potential danger once released. 3. it's definitely a good question and thought game. I think if it's black officer then yes...I definitely think badge had an effect here. I think if Jean had a concealed-carry license and was coming home from 15 hours at Price, Waterhouse, Cooper...tired, stressed, distracted...and roles were reversed and he went to the wrong apartment and things transpired as they did...no...I don't think he'd have the same outcome...but I don't think saying that is an indictment of Guyger's sentence being too lenient, rather other inequities and racism that exist in our legal system. I don't think Guyger owes society more time in jail because an average black man wouldn't have been given the same benefit of the doubt. 4. ya, probably. inappropriate relationship, deleting texts...not ideal, Bob.
  12. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2018/07/17/what-data-on-20-million-traffic-stops-can-tell-us-about-driving-while-black/ "We found that, compared to their share in the population, blacks are almost twice as likely to be pulled over as whites"
