It actually depends on the game. There are some games where he is dominant, but there are others where he only gets like 5 tackles. It's why I prefer Manziel as the Heisman winner.

as a whole he does more for that defense. he is average against the run and QB pressure but he really excels against the pass. he goes side line to side line and he really brings that defense together. he is not the best defensive player in the country but with out him and his leadership that D would be no where near as good as it is.

where badger got the nod was in his special teams play, imo.
It's kind of funny. Before this year he wasn't very good in coverage. He's always been good, but never top tier in the nation. This year he made some big improvements though.

To me there isn't that big of a difference. Seeing something in person is just an image to associate with an idea. And pictures and videos and stories give me sufficient images to get behind an idea. I have seen Niagara Falls in person, and it was cool but it was nothing life changing and I got nothing out of that that I couldn't have gotten reading about its dimensions and watching videos. I haven't seen the Grand Canyon, but given the opportunity I would just as soon learn about it rather than spend the money and take the time and do all the things that would be required to go there.

Now, I realize those are just tourist attractions and a lot more meaning can be derived from destinations such as Australia, Old Europe, Russia, and the Far East. But I would still rather look at pictures of those places in tandem with accounts and history written by people who actually live there and use that to form my image of that location.

I don't know why people choose terrible ways like that to off themselves. I'd probably go skydiving solo, and just not open the chute. If I wanted to live, I could just pull the cord.

Plus, life insurance would still pay out to the family, since it wouldn't be a definite suicide.

hell if i know, i generally do not have security clearance for that stuff so i am not exactly given tons of info. i would just get part numbers and need to process them or set up a supplier or something, pretty basic stuff. as for what they were for i have no clue. it was just annoying because the process for that stuff is a lot more complicated when it really does not to be.

i know we make automated systems for weapons platforms, ships, etc but that is not from our group. i do know we do quite a bit for the navy. basically, if it can be automated we probably do it in some capacity. we also make software and stuff too. pretty much 90% of the projects i work on i have no freaking idea wtf they are making unless it is an enclosure (or chickmaster, they make conveyor belt things for chickens!)

yea i know a guy who was in the airforce and now he does contract work repairing planes and jets overseas for the military. he makes pretty ridiculous money and he generally does it in 4 month intervals. he will work something like 8 months out of the year then take 4 months off state side for the business he owns (or so he says, it seems like he just drinks, goes fishing and hangs out on the beach when he is home)

pretty sweet deal if you ask me

Other One, do you actually work for them in any capacity or just deal with them through the service?

I dont do contracting, but we work with lots of them, and many of my friends have gotten out and started right away doing contracting. Nearly all of the training we do in my job is extremely specialized, so it's contracted out (both ways, we provide some things to certain groups); everyone from blackwater to the Agency, to gear manufacturers and foreign entities. We even have a contractor who works full time in our gear locker.

I'm thinking about applying for a 6 month DoD research internship via AEOP. Any tips?

Usually, hard work is valued more than nerd skills. Tailor your application to highlight your past hard work, and it'll give you a better chance.
