“We didn’t have a lot of scholarship room to work with”
..seems pretty straightforward. You can't sign players that you don't have room for. This isn't BCS football.

Nothing will change. There are already background checks. This will just add to the paperwork.

Technology is changing energy production, and that's going to happen whether we want it to or not.That being said, I think the method of energy production has to fit the geography and climate conditions of each region.
Solar makes sense in the western states like Nevada and Arizona. Wind power makes sense in the plains states.Solar power doesn't make sense in Northeast Ohio as there simply isn't enough annual sunlight to make solar practical on a large scale. Ohio also poses geographical challenges to wind power.
In my opinion fossil fuels in our area are here to stay because they're the most practical.
Also......the market is going to determine what type of energy production is used, no matter what the government does.

Unlikely that this had anything to do with ISIS.
Terrorist groups like ISIS attack targets with symbolic significance to them. Paris is a target of significance because France has been aggressively anti terrorist, especially after the Charlie Hebdo shootings.
If ISIS is going to launch attacks against the U.S., it's going to be against New York, Washington, Los Angeles, etc.
Youngstown has no political meaning to them.

Addiction has been a problem in human society throughout history. But as technology has advanced, so have the ways to get high. More powerful drugs make for more powerful addictions. That being said, not all addicts have a bad ending. My late brother-in-law's son has been sober for about four years now, after being a crack addict for almost 22 years. He now manages two addiction recovery centers and has made it his life's work to help other people get off the path that he was on for so long.Something has to be done to turn this addiction problem around, and if it starts with a walk in the rain, then so be it.And I do agree with @2muchtax: Life in prison or the death penalty for people who deal these kinds of drugs.

Cake walks are getting harder to find and college football is getting more competitive every year, across the board.
Just ask Arkansas about Toledo.

I always find it fascinating how people from the distance and safety of a computer and keyboard can make broad sweeping generalizations about people they have absolutely no knowledge of.
How do you know this is wasted money? Maybe the people that are spending the money have some insights that you don't have.
I also see another glaring difference between the people who are involved in these projects and the keyboard cynics on this message board: They're actually doing something about the problems they see in the community in which they live.

I have to say I get a guilty sense of enjoyment reading the message boards of this newspaper. Not that I'm positive all the time.....nobody is. But every time I visit, I try to put myself in the mindset of some of the perpetually bitter, angry and sad people here and I can't do it.I try to think of what made them the way they are, and how they could be so angry at the world around them, but do absolutely nothing about it.

These types of articles are what is known as"click bait". They're written with the intent to get people to click on the article to generate page views. Page views help sell advertising on the site.
And that's exactly how much value they have. If you really think about it, how could the magazine do any kind of in-depth research on 650 universities?
For me though, the best part about these articles is all the message board negativity and hair-pulling that they generate. It's always a good thing when bitter, angry and negative people, who would otherwise not lift a finger to help improve the communities that they live in, are upset for the rest of their day.

People can, and do, come back from heroin addiction all the time. I think a combination of help and punishment is the most effective. Not every one succeeds, but when they do it usually inspires them to help others. My brother in law was hooked on crack for 19 years. Now he's finally free of it and manages two addiction treatment centers in North Carolina. Since he's "been there, done that" he's very effective in helping other people get clean.I'm all for tough sentences for the people who deal this kind of stuff. It takes a big lack of conscience for hardcore drug dealers to think that it's "just business".
