Which school will he be transferring to?

Typically coaches who have invested a lot in an athlete request that a transfer not go to another team in the same conference or a team that is on the schedule to be played

Also it is generally programs that are desperate for a decent QB that will take a senior transfer that will only play for one year

Last year Jameil Showers lost the QB battle with Johnny Manziel in 2012 and was allowed to transfer to UTEP to play his final year of eligibility as a starter

And he was a bright spot for the team as he played well as was exciting to watch

Maybe Joeckel will go to UTEP as well (since Showers could only play for that one year)

Will be interesting to see where he ends up but the writing on the wall must have been that he was slated to end up as a backup

Two vie for A&M QB job as Joeckel to transfer

The race to replace Johnny Manziel as starting quarterback at Texas A&M is now down to two as the school announced Wednesday that redshirt junior Matt Joeckel will transfer from the program.

I biked into work for the first time in the history of ever

It took about 37 minutes (Google Maps said I should have done it in 20 so thanks for the constructive criticism)

My design goals were
- Make it to work
- Not die

check and check

I am thinking I will start doing this 3 times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri)

Yes it is true Google tried to build a 1000 unit apartment complex / fortress on campus to alleviate traffic on the 101 exits in the morning (desperately needed) and provide commutes without cars

Gunned down by the Mountain View City Council in the name of protecting the habitat of the burrowing owl but likely also at the behest of Mountain View landlords and businesses on the Castro that were afraid such a development would lead to a decline in demand for their properties and services

Hence the rally behind the Owl

And tech buses from SF

And protests

darn owls

UT decides Longhorns have been pranked, will rip out maroon bluebonnets

Maroon bluebonnets, at best an oxymoron and at worst a deep insult to the Austin community's burnt-orange sensibilities, are slated to be removed from the University of Texas main campus.


UT officials would prefer not to announce the exact date the offending plants will be taken up, said Markus Hogue, the university's program coordinator for irrigation and water conservation.

(7) As far back as 1999, Secretary of Commerce William Daley--

(A) admitted that the National Technical Information Service would eventually outlive its usefulness and be unable to sustain its revenue-losing profit model;

(B) explained that `declining sales revenues soon would not be sufficient to recover all of NTIS' operating costs'; and

(C) attributed this `decline to other agencies' practice of making their research results available to the public for free through the Web'.

(8) According to the November 2012 GAO report--

(A) `NTIS product expenditures exceeded revenues for 10 out of the past 11 fiscal years.';

(B) `The agency lost, on average, about $1.3 million over the last 11 years on its products.'; and

(C) `The decline in revenue for its products continues to call into question whether NTIS's basic statutory function of acting as a self-financing repository and disseminator of scientific and technical information is still viable.'.

(9) NTIS has compensated for its lost revenue by charging other Federal agencies for various services that are not associated with NTIS's primary mission.

(10) Future technological advances will ensure that the services offered by NTIS are even more superfluous for essential government functions than they are today.
