    I’m also working on a way to do the predictions from the home or forum pages, right in the sidebar.  That’ll increase participation I’m guessing.

    I don’t follow the NFL, but NE’s Eric Rowe has to be ours

    So Eric Rowe plays for New England?  That’s our guy, right? Watching NFL for first time this year.

        He gave up the TD and got chewed out by Belichek last week for his unsportmanslike penalty.

    Oregon fires co-oc and suspends strength and conditioning coach. Lot of drama going on in Eugene.

    The National Debt

    Is anyone else worried that we’re going to start feeling the effects of “crowding out” with the National Debt, now?

    Interesting article:
    http://www.concordcoalition.org/tabulation/whats-another-91-trillion

    I am also very worried about Trump’s tax plan. Yet another article by the Concord Coalition:
    http://www.concordcoalition.org/tabulation/treasury-nominee%E2%80%99s-remarks-raise-questions-about-trump-tax-plan

    Last one, from the New York Times:
    https://nyti.ms/2kgfH4H

    Is anyone else worried about this? Interest rates are going to start going up – it’s just going to happen. CPI was above 2% which mean we may see TWO rate increases before the March meetings. That’s going to increase the cost of servicing the national debt – especially that incurred starting right now.

    With the ever increasing portion of the total federal receipts going towards servicing the national debt…I’m officially worried. It’s got to be reaching the point where it will start infringing upon entitlement and infrastructure spending.

    And whatever bad stuff happens the democrats will blame Trump, and the republicans will blame Obama.

    Thoughts on Trump’s Infrastructure spending by an economist I trust…

    Spending on infrastructure…

    If Trump cuts taxes again, the deficit will do the same as it did under Bush. Balloon. While the Republicans claim to be fiscal conservatives, I see little evidence of that in behavior.

    Since BHO has been vilified for the increase to national debt, consider this…

    I want Trump blamed for this…

    …since The Donald wants to take credit for everything.

    Rates will go up some.  I work for the Fed and they’re calling for 3 rate increases this year.  That said, they will be limited.  The biggest cap or ceiling on interest rates is a demographic headwind from baby boomers retiring.  When people retire, they don’t spend as much.  Couple that with the historic low job participation rate and you have a big cap on consumer spending Which comprises 70% of GDP.  If consumer spending were growing, then yes the government debt competing against consumers would push rates higher.

    I’m not worried at all.  Trump is following a true supply side path: cut taxes and cut spending.  In the past the supply side approach never realized the spending cuts.  Obamateur’s unchecked reign of spending caused severe damage with a doubling of the national debt and we lost our AAA credit rating.  That era is now over.

    How lucky are we, Utah Alumni and Fans?

    We have a basketball program that is just getting better and better under a future college coaching legend in Larry Krystkowiak. We have a young team, we’re only going to lose 2 seniors (1 seldom used), and we have a Freshman that is starting to look scary good.

    We have a football program that is consistently good with an already legendary coach. And now he goes out and makes what I think is an exciting and hopeful hire for an OC – someone that could eventually succeed Kyle as Head Coach. Our program is just freakin’ LOADED with talent, and our recruiting class is consistently getting better and better. Utah Football is seen as a powerhouse.

    We have a baseball program that just went worst to first in the PAC-12, and is also now headed by a great coach that seems like he wants to stay. We’ve got good talent and have the opportunity to become one of the better baseball programs in the PAC-12 for years to come.

    Women’s basketball is doing amazing things and is definitely on the upswing with another homer hire for head coach.

    Women’s volleyball has made the adjustment to PAC-12 play in talent and game plan, and is so fun and exciting to watch.

    Women’s soccer is going gangbusters and is in the thick of things in the PAC-12.

    Don’t even get me started on our incredible gymnastics program, or our legendary ski team.

    We have no teams that are basement dwellers right now. None.

    HOW LUCKY ARE WE, PEOPLE?????

    I, for one, am a great big Dr. Chris Hill fan. Oh, he’s not perfect and he’s made some bonehead hires. But he’s learned from those experiences over the years and right now we are sitting so incredibly pretty in just about every single athletics program.

    Gosh, it’s a great day to be a UTE!

    Oregon Football is turning into a dumpster fire

    Their co-oc that followed hc taggert from usf will be fired after being charged with a dui. This is right after another coach was suspended after 3 players were hospitalized during practice. The only negative about all of this is it may bring chip back sooner rather than later.
