Vandy would be good. I remember when they used to play. Both programs were so bad that no one cared. Both are better now, so it could become something.

Conventional progress would be a year behind that.

Is his cap hit still 12 even after a team buys him out, or does it drop? If it drops, I’m surprised a team up against the tax hasn’t worked a deal for him. The Grizz could take a pick and no player back because they’re under the cap and the other team could then buy him out.

Instead of working a deal for WCS. It will be interesting to see what the new FO prioritizes in free agency.

If they could swing a salary dump deal for Adams, Whiteside or similar, they could also get picks back.

Are you a contractor? You don’t hear people talking about PPE everyday. 😁

Rabb doesn’t fit the style of play everyone expects as much as the how the Grizz played before. He’s also inexpensive and easy to move if they need to free up a roster spot.

You don’t project the Grizz taking back any bad contracts for picks?

Why does this matter? They are both loved here and they were both critical to the team’s success. But they are gone now and that period is over. Why all the splitting hairs? What’s the point?

I think Colorado St also makes sense as a football-only addition. Nice TV market. Solid following. Then pick up a a smaller school in the geo footprint with potential for hoops and other sports. VCU, ODU, UAB, Dayton, etc.

Not really. I work in the Memphis metro area, but actually live across the state line in north MS. Nice local area, but the state politics here are not great. I occasionally see Lib candidates, but it isn’t very organized.

Not sure yet. Definitely not Trump or a Democrat. Third-Party candidates don’t have the luxury of 2 year long campaigns so that field is just beginning to take shape.

State level taxes. Again, a world with no taxes is a utopia that will never exist. Does that mean the federal government should continue to run wild with deficit spending that isn’t sustainable? Do you trust either party to EVER do a damn thing about it? They never have.

I work for a contracting firm and I’ve seen it first hand. Ft Campbell probably doubled in building footprint over the course of 15 years of war. There is a long and winding maze that money travels through.

Regulating is one thing, and I believe in more of it than your average Lib probably would for the reason you just gave. Federal money laundering is another, and that is what a lot of the bureaucracy serves today. Just look at the military for a start.

There hasn’t been a remotely fiscally conservative presidential administration since maybe Nixon. You might have to go back to Kennedy and Eisenhower. The only difference between parties now is WHERE they spend. Not IF.

They have rely on those funds currently because they can’t tax enough directly. And do you no think it’s easier to hold local politicians accountable than national ones hiding in DC?

I agree with stomping out corruption. Clamping down on the firehose of free and easy money will choke out more corruption than a 1,000 regulators could.
