    UT lands 6th in SEC SOS

    Well, I was educated in TN, which is probably why I understand that a 4-8 team and a 12-0 team get the same SOS effect if they play the same 5-7 team.

    UT lands 6th in SEC SOS

    Tennessee went 5-7 that year, so they still hurt Florida's SOS.

    Abortions and the bible.

    I ran a search on the CDC's site: The word "fetus" returned 4,343 results. "Transgender" returned 2,292. "Diversity" returned 17,608. So the CDC knows what the word "parasite" means, but they struggle with words like "baby" and "forbidden."

    If you're going to make an appeal to authority, you leave yourself open to moments like this.

    During Pregnancy | CDC The CDC's page about pregnancy says "baby" 18 times and "fetus" 0.

    Abortions and the bible.

    That's what I'm doing. Though it's true that from a biological point of view a fetus shares similarities with a parasite (it's an independent creature utilizing another independent creature's body to sustain its life), parasites aren't the natural offspring of their hosts. The fact is that...

    Almost all creatures develop from a fetus, so what is this particular fetus if not human?

    Abortions and the bible.

    If it's not a human before 28 weeks, what is it?

    Abortions and the bible.

    Actually, there is a legal obligation to provide for one's children. A safe haven law provides for a conditional surrender of parental rights. But assuming that one doesn't comply with the conditions of the law, one can be in all kinds of legal hot water for failing to take care of one's children.

    Abortions and the bible.

    In your mind, why does viability matter?

    Abortions and the bible.

    So, why there? Why does crossing the "late term" threshold make a difference?

    UT lands 6th in SEC SOS

    Bama has home-and-homes with Texas and Notre Dame booked in the coming years. Regardless, Bama hadn't previously had trouble with these neutral site games (and we've got Miami and USC in the next couple of years). And the CFA folks love having Bama in their game because the tickets disappear...

    UT lands 6th in SEC SOS

    While Arkansas and Ole Miss don't help Bama's SOS, they aren't enough to sink it compared to everyone else. The rest of the West also gets those teams and they are ranked 3, 7, 8, & 11. But A&M gets USCe and UGA (combined 18-9), LSU gets Florida and Vandy (16-10), MSU gets Kentucky and...

    UT lands 6th in SEC SOS

    It'll work itself out eventually. The Big XII is ultimately going to fold, and we'll be left with 4 conferences. Put the 4 champs in the playoff, and those that want to see 8 teams will get a de facto quarterfinal with the conference title games. It's the best possible scenario.
