In Class 5A and 6A, teams are now seeded based on total wins and losses. Any ties are broken first by head to head competition, and then a points system. The higher seed hosts every playoff game, just like the NFL does. Kodi Justice led Arizona State (16 6, 4 6) with 16 points, but the Sun Devils were just 5 of 19 on 3 point shooting. The 64 points were a season low for the Sun Devils. Shannon Evans II added 13 points but was 1 of 7 on 3 pointers.

What a Supermoon and what does it mean for you? Hopefully, this blog will help to answer those questions. The Full Cold Moon rises on Sunday further exemplifying what December is all about. It not our coldest or snowiest month on average (that January), but it traditionally marks the beginning of a cold and snowy stretch much to the delight of winter weather lovers and chagrin of those who long for warm summer days.

Apparently, those complaints were heard at the highest level of the organization, and Dunbar was sent packing. He has since been hired as defensive line coach at the University of Alabama..

He was the coach who could get a little bit more out of you. Missouri had an All American DB named Roger Wehrli. As we’re getting ready to take the field, Barry walks over to me and says, “You know we’re playing Missouri, right?” “Uh, yeah, coach.” “You know they’ve got a great All American DB.” “Yeah, coach, I’ve heard y’all talk about him on film.” “Well, he’s going to kick your butt today.

Being gay is different, clearly, than those in the NFL who participate in activities that are not normally associated with football. It can’t be easy to come out of the closet, and it can’t be easy to be out on such a large stage. Being openly gay in the NFL may be a big deal to some..

Milt’s polished sophistication and access to unlimited state of the art equipment is impressive to his new co workers in the absurdly underfunded department. As Russ and Milt work long hours together in the economically distressed city of Battle Creek, the question is: will it be Milt’s charm and endless supply of high end resources or Russ’s old fashioned cynicism, guile and deception that prove to be the keys to catching the bad guys in his beloved hometown?

Not just that, but the left increasingly believes the entire American experiment is illegitimate. Though he is not yet brave enough to say what he wants, it is clear from his writings that he hopes or is moving toward openly hoping for some level of violence in this country to purge the stain of the American Revolution. Others on the left now demand we upend the First, Second, Fifth and other amendments to the Constitution.
