What change would we have to see to recognize that a failure has occurred?

Good point, perhaps he's already failed.

I was hoping for some BF Bailout Dough. I could use it to buy Di2, install it on the Cervelo, and provide BF with months of entertainment and photos surrounding this Epic Schwag Acquisition.

Seriously, pcad, it seems to me that it would make MORE sense to make DA/Campy/Sram components that will last, like 20 years for that kind of money (with proper maint) than jack the cost of a 'well-equipped' road bike up past the 10k limit.

But we can't discuss cycling on Foo, can we?

You don't need $$, you need an infusion of credibility to shore up your collapsing cycling credentials.

Excellent. We're back to ridiculing pcad, which is how the universe should be.

Has TN picked a replacement for LF?

Pcad dreams of a golden parachute. More likely it'll be something more like a golden shower.

You mean the UT football coach? No. A lot of smoke surrounding Duke (and former UT assistant) coach David Cutcliffe. But there's been no offer and acceptance. Something will come down on that tomorrow.

He's probably a safe hire, but not a sexy one.

It's a horrible time to try to get a new coach. The Kiffin crew really screwed us over.
