Chip Kelly was reportedly ‘hated’ by boosters at Oregon

  Chip Kelly was reportedly ‘hated’ by boosters at Oregon Chip Kelly’s rise to fame in the coaching world was a rather rapid one, and there were apparently times when he did not know how to handle it. In his latest installment of a three-part feature on Kelly, Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times spoke with author Mark Saltveit, who has followed Kelly closely and written books about him. According to Saltveit, boosters at Oregon despised Kelly and wanted him fired even after the unprecedented success he had with the program.

Everything is bigger in Texas… but that does not appear to include the Longhorns’ stadium. It will, however, be a lot nicer.

UT’s regents on Thursday approved of a $175 million expansion for Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium but perhaps the most notable aspect of the project, according to the Austin American Statesman, is that it will not be adding capacity to the venue at all despite that big price tag. Instead, seating capacity will remain right around 100,119 but will complete the lower bowl of the stadium by adding a host of club seats and an even bigger video board than the current ‘Godzillatron’ that is currently in place.

Tesla's board says Musk started go-private talks last week

  Tesla's board says Musk started go-private talks last week Tesla chief executive Elon Musk had opened a discussion with the board last week about taking the company private, some board members said in a statement Wednesday."This included discussion as to how being private could better serve Tesla's long-term interests, and also addressed the funding for this to occur," the board members said.

The University of Texas System Board of Regents gave approval Thursday to a $ 175 million revamp of the Darrell K Royal- Texas Memorial football stadium in Austin that will largely be paid for by donors and ticket sales.

New south end zone expansion would feature premium suites , game-day parking and totally remake the coaching offices. Posted April 13th, 2018. Texas regents scheduled to approve $ 175 -million expansion of Royal-Memorial Stadium .

The team’s football facility will also be totally revamped as part of the construction but a timeline was not given for the entire project to be completed.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the expansion of DKR is not the upgraded bells and whistles it brings to Austin but for the fact that it somewhat puts an end to the tit-for-tat capacity war with rival Texas A&M. The two schools have continually tried to one-up each other the past several decades by building bigger and bigger expansions but it seems that the Longhorns are finally okay with being just behind the Aggies, leading to this funny exchange at the meeting on Thursday the AAS recounted:

Lawsuit filed over Arkansas Medicaid work requirement

  Lawsuit filed over Arkansas Medicaid work requirement Three people on Arkansas' expanded Medicaid program are suing to prevent the state from enforcing its new requirement that would drop coverage for them and thousands of others if they don't work. The federal lawsuit was filed in Washington Tuesday by three advocacy groups on behalf of the residents over the requirement, which the state began enforcing in June.

UT regents give approval for $ 175 million in a project that will dramatically alter the gameday experince. Posted August 9th, 2018. Fenves told the UT System Board of Regents on Thursday that the new south end zone expansion of Royal-Memorial Stadium will not increase the stadium seating

Darrell K Royal- Texas Memorial Stadium south end zone expansion pending final approval from Board of Regents . For months on end there has been talk of renovating and expanding the south end zone at Darrell K Royal- Texas Memorial Stadium .

“How many seats does Kyle Stadium have?” Regent Jeff Hildebrand asked, referring to Texas A&M’s football stadium, Kyle Field.

The Aggies’ home field seats 102,733 after a dramatic renovation fueled by the team’s move to the Southeastern Conference. Someone in the room shouted out 105,000. “What’s it take to get another four thousand (seats)?” one UT regent asked.

“We can certainly look at that,” (school president Greg Fenves) told the regents. “We’ve talked extensively about this. We believe we have enough seats in the stadium for our program.”

To which Chairwoman Sara Martinez Tucker said, “It’s quality, not quantity.”

Perhaps when things are finally complete up in Austin, both Texas and Texas A&M can check out each others stadium and finally renew their longstanding rivalry on the football field in their brand new palaces to the sport in the great state they both call home.

No state dislikes Trump’s job performance more than Mass.

  No state dislikes Trump’s job performance more than Mass. Note to Alan Dershowitz: The aversion to Donald Trump goes well beyond Martha’s Vineyard. Massachusetts ranks first in the nation for its dislike of the president’s job performance, a poll released Tuesday found. The Morning Consult survey polled all 50 states individually and found that in Massachusetts, only 35 percent of residents approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while 62 percent disapproved. The difference in those two numbers makes up what pollsters call a net approval rating, which locally is a negative 27 percent.
