That’s what I tell myself as I sit at my desk, like a college kid counting the days left till graduation. It seems like every day since the Ohio State Buckeyes held up that God-awful new national championship trophy I’ve been checking some college football countdown clock, marking the days left until the 2015 season. So, now seems like as good a time as any to throw out some way too early college football predictions for 2015. ν Two teams from the same conference will not make the College Football Playoff. But after everything that happened last season, not to mention how many bonafide superstars left for the draft after last season, can anyone seriously sit there and say there are two teams in the same conference that both look like playoff locks. Take into account all of the random nonsense that happens during the course of every single college football season, such as Laqoun Treadwell fumbling at the goal line and both Mississippi schools coming out of nowhere, and I’m not ready to say... Even when Florida State fielded one of the most dominant teams in recent college football history in 2014’s national champion, people were still trying to discredit its success because of its.
Aided by a last-minute infusion of cash that went to projects backed by the state's Republican leaders, Florida legislators late Monday night reached a deal on a nearly $80 billion budget for the state. State law requires that lawmakers must wait 72 hours after the budget is placed on their desks before taking a final vote. Legislators are racing against the clock to get their work done. State government could be partially shut down if a new budget isn't in place by the end of June. House and Senate budget negotiators in the last few days had agreed to set aside more than $400 million in tax cuts and to provide a 3 percent boost in the amount spent on each public school students. But shortly before midnight, the budget chiefs clinched their final deal by adding roughly $300 million for hometown projects into the budget. Crisafulli, a Merritt Island Republican, wanted money for his initiative to offer bonuses to school districts that require children to wear school uniforms. Tom Lee, the Senate budget chief and a Brandon Republican, defended the decision to add a long list of additional projects in the waning moments of budget negotiations.
Two months after Jim Harbaugh decided to go home, he was living alone in a hotel. He missed the fashion revolution on Michigan ’s campus—all those kids, who weren’t even born when he played for Bo Schembechler in the 1980s, wearing his number 4 jersey, or his trademark khakis, or Harbaugh-themed T-shirts: Maize. Harbaugh didn’t even see the Bank of Ann Arbor billboards: Like Jim loves khakis. Each day he arrived at Schembechler Hall at 6 a. m. , then returned to the Residence Inn by Briarwood Mall at 11:30 p. m. Then he would lay his sweater on one chair, belt and pants on another, keep his undershirt on, put on pajama bottoms, brush... Harbaugh arrived at Michigan after four successful years with the 49ers, where he went 44-19-1. He wooed his first recruit, six-year-old daughter Addie, out of Northern California by pointing to Michigan’s snow and ice and saying: “Anna and Elsa... Jim’s wife, Sarah, had looked at 20 houses over several trips to Ann Arbor and hadn’t found one she loved. Perhaps Jim’s mother was right: “It’s not the same as when he was growing up. Maybe in his mind he thought [it was]. The house you lived in is not the same. One Sunday, Harbaugh woke at 3 or 4 a. m. His mind was spinning. It was one of those winter nights in the upper Midwest when visibility is low and even the snow looks dark. Harbaugh roamed for three hours,.
