  1. Iowa State 38, West Virginia 14. WVU quarterback Austin Kendall out with upper-body injury.
  2. I hope our players were watching OU put the rush on Sammy today. Nine sacks, unless I lost count.
  3. TCU recruit Eli Williams has posted that he tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus last week. I suppose that means surgery and at least a year of rehab. Don't think we were counting on him helping next year anyway, but I hope he can successfully recover. Reportedly he is an athlete that could play multiple positions.
  4. I think the rest of the season will be win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win = 8-4. Probably Texas Bowl.
  5. Come on you guys. Cumbie has had his problems, but he wasn't the problem yesterday. Our players were just whipped physically all over the field. ISU dominated both lines. No plays work when there are four of their guys in our backfield right after the ball is snapped. The ISU defense looked like they were playing with 15 guys, everywhere we went they swarmed us.
  6. Interesting note on Gene Wood, graduate transfer from Alabama. He is the grandson of Cotton Davidson, former quarterback for Baylor and the original Dallas Texans of the American Football League.
  7. New Mex going to Park Hill in 2020: https://www.star-telegram.com/entertainment/restaurants/eats-beat/article235719172.html
  8. https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/big-12/texas-christian-university/article235698737.html Not as good game report as Turkvision, but some quotes from Frogs about the experience of playing in the park.
  9. Dang. You must be almost as old as I am.
  10. Can't argue with you here, as I don't know nothin' 'bout no sadistics. What makes you think we are currently in a trend and not a cycle?
  11. This is Dr. Curry, the most rational voice I have found on this subject, discussing climate change and weather in June: "There is very little in the way of extreme weather events that can convincingly be attributed to manmade global warming, even if you are assuming that all of the recent warming is manmade. Global warming activists will continue use extreme events as an argument against fossil fuels, even though there is little to no evidence to support this. Without this argument, there is very little left to worry about in the near term regarding AGW, apart from the slow creep of sea level rise." https://judithcurry.com/2019/06/13/extremes/ Since you are familiar with her blog, I assume you know she believes the uncertainty of the case for catastrophic anthropogenic global warming is vastly understated. As in the conclusions of the blog post you cite: The largest rates of warming that are often cited in impact assessment analyses (e.g. 4.5 or 5 oC) rely on climate models being driven by a borderline implausible concentration/emission scenarios (RCP8.5). The IPCC AR5 (2013) likely range of warming at the end of the 21st century has a top-range value of 3.1 oC, if the RCP8.5-derived values are eliminated. Even the more moderate amount of warming of 3.1oC relies on climate models with values of the equilibrium climate sensitivity that are larger than can be defended based on analysis of historical climate change. Further, these rates of warming explicitly assume that the climate of the 21st century will be driven solely by anthropogenic changes to the atmospheric concentration, neglecting 21st century variations in the sun and solar indirect effects, volcanic eruptions, and multi-decadal to millennial scale ocean oscillations. Natural processes have the potential to counteract or amplify the impacts of any manmade warming. Estimates of 21st century sea level rise exceeding 1 m require at least one borderline implausible or very weakly justified assumption. Allowing for one borderline implausible assumption in the sea level rise projection produces high-end estimates of sea level rise of 1.1 to 1.6 m. Higher estimates are produced using multiple borderline implausible or very weakly justified assumptions. The most extreme of the published worst-case scenarios require a cascade of events, each of which are extremely unlikely to borderline impossible based on our current knowledge base. However, given the substantial uncertainties and unknowns surrounding ice sheet dynamics, these scenarios should not be rejected as impossible. And, yes, Dr. Curry is appalled at the damage done to science by alarmist disinformation and suppression of debate. As for the difference between cause and contribute, there is a vast distinction there. If we are causing climate change, we can stop climate change. If we are contributing to climate change, it will continue no matter what we do, albeit perhaps a bit slower. Is slowing it down worth the cost? See question 3. We are in fact in a loooong period of cooling, have been for about 3,000 years. Is the last 150 years the end of that trend or one of several multi-century warming interruptions? (Unknown) What caused the warming between 1850 and 1950, when the IPCC says there wasn't enough manmade CO2 in the air to be the cause? What caused nature to turn over warming to humans in 1950?
  12. Thanks, Turk, I have to remember to renew my subscription.
  13. Rundadamble and don't fumble.
  14. After the SMU game I ate at Fat Shack in the Grand Marc. Good sandwich consisting of the meat, potatoes, veggies all together in a wrap. A number of TVs to follow games on, too.
