    - Capital One Bowl: #9 LSU vs. #13 Penn State

    Agree!!

    Basis,

    You and I are probably have the most flex so I will make this one easy. I have an interview at 1PM Monday. After that, Im free.

    Maybe Monday evening or Tuesday day is great

    I have three interviews this week myself. Monday at 2, Tuesday is an information session and then an interview after at 7:30pm, and Thursday at 3 but kind of far away.

    If we're ready to advance tomorrow during the day, I can play anytime in the evening. Tuesday during the day would work, as would after 9. Wednesday I'm around all day.

    I spoke with Bruce (LSU) and were going to try and get this game in since its a user game.

    I'll keep you all posted.

    I've been swamped the last few days so I kind of lost track of things. Is my bowl game vs Utah this week? Meaning, do I need to jump on and destroy them tonight?

    Also, with Bruce being sick he may not remember/be able to do what he was going to do this offseason (I don't even really remember exactly what it was, but I think it was along the lines of trying to coordinate a night where we can all jump on and rip through the offseason). Do we think there's even a remote chance of getting all of us on the same night? I think a Sunday evening might be our best option, but with the Curb finale this Sunday that might not work.

    Also, Basis, let's be sure to coordinate so I know exactly when you're going to advance to the offseason (I assume it would be right/soon after the championship game). That will help me get the offseason bonus recruit list up right away to avoid confusion.

    Sounds good Dat as far as the coordination for the off-season. It will probably be Wednesday night if you're around. I'll send you a PM. You're game is up, btw. Every game is this week but for the title game.

    I'll also try to get the off-season night scheduled. If we can do one stage of off-season per day Wednesday-Saturday, and then finish it all on Sunday, that could cut our time down significantly. I'm going to start a thread.

    Sorry about the flu Bruce. Definitely a brutal virus.

    I am going to set JFosh up to play the CPU since the advance deadline is 5:00 eastern tomorrow. If you feel up to it you guys can still play it even if you are on auto, but this at least gives him the option to play if you are unable.

    Wed at 2 is great Basis. I had a good interview yesterday so if they schedule me for something Wed, I will let you know ASAP so we can move the time up a few hours or down but I doubt it

    Cool! Good stuff on the interview... mine went okay, as all the others have, but my lack of experience is something that I feel like is killing me right now, even on these entry level jobs. And then at the same token, if they want people with a little bit more experience, how the FUCK am I supposed to GET more experience if no one will hire me? I am personable and have a strong, confident personality, so that really hasn't been an issue in the interviews.

    BTW if we have to move the time for tomorrow, let's move it earlier in the morning rather than later. That way things can get set up for the off-season night.

    Shit, basically anything at this point. I've interviewed with IT Staffing companies to do recruiting, and then eventually sales, and now I am looking into financial services/planning firms. Also keeping the dream of sports management alive and have an interview with the Mets on Thursday.

    Its tough man. I am leaving the Industrial world and going back to Retail management. I have had 2 interviews with Krogers Grocery and others and I will take anything now. 2 months today without work. My going away package ends this week so its down to only unemployment

    You have to love when they tell entry level college grad's that they dont have neough experience for entry level jos.
