> This could wreak havoc with schedules for Cal and UCLA. Cal plays at North Carolina this year and at Mississippi in 2019. UCLA plays at Memphis this season. I had heard these games were grandfathered in but this morning I read a news story at SFGate.com that quoted the Attorney General as saying the matter was under review. Cal has future games at TCU and Auburn a few years from now and I expect that's very questionable.

> It'll be even worse for schools like San Jose State and Fresno State that depend on paycheck games against SEC and Big 12 schools to help fund their programs. For example, San Jose State is playing at Texas this year and Fresno State at Alabama.
 
NY banned travel to North Carolina last year and UAlbany women's basketball had to cancel a trip to either Duke or North Carolina.

What if they didn't use state money? Many athletic teams support
themselves so state money might not be used.

Looks like I remembered it wrong. It was men's basketball and it was to Duke:

And, yes, if money other than state money is used, I suppose it would be ok but only the high end athletic departments support themselves.

I'm glad I've never been there and I have no plans to ever do so.

If you filter the conversation to just climate and landscape, it's pretty much heaven. Imo.
 
Cheers.

That's what many of my friends have told me. As a gearhead from the
muscle car era it makes me sad that I may never visit some of the areas
that I have dreamed about.

Two things to note. First, the law says that employees cannot be "required" to travel to those states; it is not an outright ban on travel to those states. Second, the law does ban "approvals of requests for state-funded or state-sponsored travel" to those states, but I am assuming the money would come out of the existing athletic budget rather than a specific request. The only problem might be if a Cal or UCLA team flying to a game would be considered "state-sponsored."

I expect the President of a college to know it all.
He must communicate in writing with students with
peers and with prospective donors.

He/him is a defining pronoun.
Who/whom is a non-defining pronoun.
Your objection is spurious.

if we are going to talk about the gop's poor candidate in 2016, shouldn't the dems poor candidate also get equal mention? If trump depressed gop turnout in that district, surely the dem's terrible candidate did the same there.
 
Plus, this is not even a consistent argument others are making....in kansas and montana it was "oh, look how much we closed the gap on what trump did". Now in georgia it's "forget about trump's numbers as the baseline"....I mean which is it?
 
The dems didn't put 25 mill into a seat that they would have felt was a massive uphill battle. They threw 25 mill into it because they felt they could win it, and they didn't.

That's because you don't want to understand it. The special
elections were ALL in safe seats, seats the GOP was expected
to win heavily. And all of them were close. That's not good
news for the 20+ GOP reps sitting in districts Clinton won or
the 40+ GOP reps sitting in districts less safe than this GA seat.
They KNOW that, even if you don't agree.

you're jumping around the point again. We're discussing this particular seat, and I pointed out that dems have been using the trump vote % in those other special election districts as a baseline, but then for this georgia district they dont want to do that....that was my point on how it was inconsistent, and not surprisingly you didn't address that angle of it.

Queer is also slang for counterfeit currency.
