Oh, Mi(ami)

You know how sometimes you don’t understand what people were thinking when they did something?

This is one of those times.

Rethinking the WiFi experience

Some crazy shit here.

Greetings from Miami where the owner of the Dolphins is trying to “renovate” Sunlife Stadium where the Hurricanes also play by putting a roof on an outdoor stadium for the obvious reason of putting internal cellular stadium cellular antennas over our heads with implied GPS tracking to complete the threat of red light cameras to track us from our homes into the stadium.

We have no idea how much money he may be receiving from the cellular companies for this “renovation”.

Criminal conspiracies and the forced move from the Orange Bowl to Sunlife Stadium http://www.scout.com/college/miami/forums/2936-the-lounge/13189738-criminal-conspiracies-re-the-forced-move-from-the-orange-bowl

We think this started with large indoor stadiums like University of Phoenix Stadium home of the Fiesta Bowl when the four teams that left the Big 12 and the Fiesta Bowl and then the Big 12 itself opted out of the Fiesta Bowl for the time proven safety of the Superdome, which at the time had no DAS cellular, to play the SEC for its signature bowl game. Unfortunately since then Big Cellular has spread low level DAS cellular like vermin into every college stadium so not even pro teams can move there temporarily.

This is the result of unverified elections where we as citizens can watch over hand counted votes at the polls to regulate this fascist like grab for power over our heads in stadiums with GPS tracking implied able to target student leaders as identified by our smart phone crunching, minorities, religious groups, etc. Open sky above our heads is preferable than trusting anyone in the current environment of red light cameras tracking us into stadiums with low level cellular antenna positions over our heads

Damn you, Big Cellular!

If McGarity suddenly announces plans to put a dome on Sanford Stadium, you’ll know he’s in on it.

This “football mission” isn’t something Mark Richt does.

A MRAP is mine resistant ambush protected vehicle.  For some reason, the Pentagon thinks it’s a good idea to give them to every Tom, Dick and police chief out there with an itch for one.

Like this college police department, for example (h/t).

And the Ohio State University Police Department asked for an armored vehicle to assist with “football missions.” (The Pentagon gave Ohio State an MRAP in September 2013, and school police deployed it to football games, the department told a student newspaper, so as to have a “presence.”)

I am truly amazed we haven’t seen one of these bad boys in Athens.  Yet.

Oh, Vanderbilt.

In retrospect, this might not have been the smartest way to promote the program, the soon-to-be fired intern in the public relations department thought.

Now this is what I call detached from reality.

If you’ve ever wondered why UT blogger Chip Brown is widely mocked, here’s Exhibit “A”.

The only thing more bizarre than insisting the Big Ten and SEC would willingly forego their revenue advantage over other conferences is the idea that Florida and Georgia would willingly leave the SEC to join ACC-lite.  Pure nutso stuff.

This is the best part, though:

If members of Congress cry foul and question the status of athletic departments as tax exempt, the P5 can have them call Texas athletic director Steve Patterson.

Patterson, the king of doom and gloom forecasts about the rising costs of college athletics, can tell Congress how every school is about to be coated in red ink.

Yes, because there isn’t a more respected name in college athletics these days than Steve Patterson.

I knew that song sucked.

Texas A&M had to reinforce the south end zone stands at Kyle Field after they shifted unsettlingly during the Aggies’ loss to LSU because of the playing of “Sandstorm”.

I wonder if that’s what McGarity was referring to when he said “…we have an opportunity to do certain things that will get our crowd excited in a proactive manner, rather than in a reactive manner.”

Happy birthday, America.

Home of the brave, land of the free to indulge your inner moron.

Happy Fourth, for those of you with enough intelligence to appreciate it.
