2023.06.09 04:26 MooMooStarfish Moving - Southwest Side

Hello, I recently got a job offer and will be moving to Chicago. The job is near the midway airport, so I’ve been looking at neighborhoods that are safe, close to the orange line, and somewhat close to downtown. I have been considering neighborhoods such as West Lawn and Archer Heights. I am a young female and have only been to Chicago once, I’m wondering if these neighborhoods are safe, and any streets to avoid? Im trying to keep my commute no longer than 20min by car since I hear roads are bad during the winter. Any help or advice is appreciated :-)

2023.06.09 01:31 KungfuJesus08 Visiting from MSP and I just have to ask...

What the fuck is wrong with your drivers? Don't get me wrong, I love your city, the downtown area is beautiful, your beer scene is off the charts, the public markets are awesome, probably gained 5 pounds from having to experience all the amazing food. But your drivers are the worst drivers I've ever experienced. It feels like all laws are merely suggestions and nobody gives a shit about following them. I've driven around tons of bigger cities (Seattle, Portland, San Diego, Chicago, Denver, St Louis, Minneapolis obviously) and Milwaukee has by far the craziest, most "don't give a fuck" drivers I've ever seen. I've only been here 2 days and I've had people pass me from the right turn lane at stoplights, blown through lights, drive in the bike lane like it doesn't exist, force themselves into my lane to the point I was convinced we were going to run into each other, go 20 over the speed limit driving through crowded streets, I've had to sit and wait for 2 light cycles because people block the intersections when they get the green light.
Seriously? Who taught everyone here to drive? Does nobody care about getting into accidents? Has it always been like this or is this a recent thing?
Again, love the city, it's amazing, but your drivers scare the shit out of me.

2023.06.09 01:09 SnooOnions3608 Looking for a third DePaul roommate for our 3br1bath apartment.

Looking for a third DePaul roommate for our 3br1bath apartment.

Attention my fellow Blue Demons :

Are you tired of living with roommates who turn your living space into a disaster zone? Do you crave some peace and quiet, but all you get are shenanigans sessions at 3 a.m.? Well, fear not, because we have a place of your dreams!
We are seeking a third roommate with a Ph.D. in cleanliness, a black belt in an organization, and a sense of humor to laugh at my silly jokes for our 3 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment located in a vibrant neighborhood of Wicker Park close to Division Blue Line, an ideal location for a DePaul student. Loop Campus (Downtown) is only 9 minutes away by CTA Blue line & Lincoln Park Campus is 18 minutes away (Blue line then transfer to Red line). There is a Jewel Osco right in front of the house so you don’t have to walk too much for groceries. Besides that, there are bars, restaurants, and taverns near the apartment.
The room is big enough to put a full-size bed, and a tv stand, and still, you will get some more space left. The house is a no-smoking zone. Also, No Pets are allowed. Occasional guests are allowed (I can arrange visitor’s parking)
Both of us are DePaul folks super clean & quiet. We expect the same from the new roommate, especially at night. I can promise you that you will have a wonderful experience living here. The rent is $533 excluding utilities, and the security deposit is $533. "The lease is month to month".Laundry is available onsite. Private parking is not available, but you can park on the street.
A little bit about the neighborhood: Not far outside of the corporate skyscrapers and tourist attractions of the Near North Side and The Loop, the Wicker Park neighborhood serves up an exciting and distinctly Chicagoan atmosphere. A thriving artistic community operates here, and both locals and national touring acts regularly perform on the neighborhood’s many stages—many of the city’s most famous modern musicians got their start in Wicker Park’s nightclubs and theaters. Wicker Park is also home to many of Chicago’s most in-demand restaurants, drawing eager gastronomes from all across the city. Most of these attractions are clustered together around Milwaukee Avenue, with the rest of the neighborhood largely taken up by historic homes and apartment buildings along tree-lined streets.
The room will be available on July 1st, 2023. Believe me, you do not wanna miss this place after looking at the location which is 1341 North Ashland Avenue, Chicago 60622. Do let me know if you find a better deal than this.
DM me with your phone # or email and I will share more details.

2023.06.08 23:50 SavannahInChicago Mom says one thing, then says another. So frustrated.

I am so frustrated and hope this is okay to post here.
My mom has been helping me out the last few months to afford food and help me get to work. I was very hesitant to take any money from her. She went back to work after retiring and I really did not want her to have to think about supporting me.
I honestly am making as much as I can in my job and I will not get a raise going elsewhere. I am in school, but that takes time. I have a hard time with my mental health during school and I was just diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. So picking up shifts is hard for me. The help she is giving me is very helpful.
That being said, she had to talk me into it and this is where I am frustrated. She has had two long talks with me about how she is completely fine financially and she wants to help me and do not worry about her. She finally made me feel better about taking money and help from her.
I broke my toe a few days ago and cannot walk far on it, so I took an Uber to and from my ultrasound appointment which I needed to confirmed the autoimmune disease and rule out cancer. I thought it would be okay until she texted me that she is broke and not to take an Uber over $12 again. The Uber was $30 because I had to travel from my neighborhood to downtown Chicago for the appointment.
I am just so frustrated. I don't want to make her broke. I don't want to take all the money out of her bank account. But she made is seem like she was fine no matter what. Now I feel like I don't want to take any money from her at all. But I also know that if I refuse money in the future she will make a big deal about it again.

These sandwiches are filled with marinated, slow-roasted pork, chicken, or tofu, topped with flavorful condiments and served on freshly baked bread.

2023.06.08 19:54 ltc0928 Do you have any experience/success stories in inquiring about switching to fully remote during an interview for a hybrid role?

A recruiter set me up with an interview for a 6 figure, hybrid position (2-3 days in office). I've always said I'd have to be dragged back into a physical office but, for the right number, I'd walk in.
Now if the office was downtown, I'd suck it up and deal with it. The problem is, the office is in a very far suburb. By car, it's 84 miles roundtrip. By transit, I'd have take 2 buses and 2 trains.
I just can't stomach the idea of commuting like it's 2019. Yes, the salary increase covers gas and car maintenance - but I'm not sure it covers my sanity. Especially with how Chicago winters are set up.
I figure I charm the socks off these guys then nicely ask them about any possibility to switching to 100% remote. Should I do that in the first interview and save everyone's time? Or wait to see if/when things feel promising in the second/final interview? Or do I let that question go through my recruiter?
The recruiter did say that the client is a little flexible in terms of the hybrid policy and, hey, the worst that can happen from me asking is a simple 'no'. I have a job - not six figures - but a good one, so I don't need to leave (I just don't blow off 6-figure opportunities when they land in my lap).

2023.06.08 18:26 HoardingBotanist Cheese & Caramel Popcorn...? Is it good?

Cheese & Caramel Popcorn...? Is it good?
If you grew up in the Midwest, chances are you've been exposed to the questionable combination of cheddar cheese popcorn and caramel. I don't have much a sweet tooth, but I can verify that this duo works VERY well together. The combination of sweet and savory might seem obvious, but there's something with the way the sharpness from the cheddar and sugar go hand in hand.
I wanted to emulate the king of Popcorn here in Chicago, Garret (been around since the early 1900s), so I took a whack at making my own recipe. I switched up a couple things and even made my own brown butter caramel to sub in for the traditional stuff. I urge you to give this recipe a go, even if you're not into sweet stuff. You'll probably like it. Full recipe below, cook along video at the bottom of the post for you visual folks. Let me know if you have any questions.

\"Chicago Mix\" Popcorn (Cheese + Caramel)
Brown Butter Caramel
Sharp Cheddar Cheese Popcorn


Caramel Corn
  • 3 Tbsp Neutral Oil
  • ½ cup Popcorn Kernels, unpopped
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ stick Unsalted Butter, cubed
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt, more to taste
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1-2 tsp Turbinado sugar (optional)
Brown Butter Cheddar Popcorn
  • 3 Tbsp Neutral Oil
  • ½ cup Popcorn Kernels, unpeopled
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese Powder
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt, more to taste
  • ½ tsp MSG


Caramel Corn
  1. Warm a large pot with a lid over medium heat for 1 minute. Add in the neutral oil and popcorn kernels, cover and let fully pop. Once you stop hearing intense popping, remove the kernels from the heat and transport them to a large heat-proof bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add sugar and water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer and whisk to dissolve the sugar. Cover with a lid and gently heat the sugar water mixture until the water has evaporated and the caramel takes on a medium-brown, 15-20 minutes. Whisk in the butter and vanilla extract. Add the baking soda and whisk again, the caramel will begin to foam up. Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn, season with salt and mix to incorporate.
  3. Pour the caramel popcorn onto a parchment-lined sheet tray and garnish with a small pinch of turbinado sugar and allow it to cool and harden for 5-10 minutes.
Brown Butter Cheddar Popcorn
  1. 3 Tbsp Neutral Oil
  2. ½ cup Popcorn Kernels, unpeopled
  3. 1 stick Unsalted Butter
  4. 1 cup Cheddar Cheese Powder
  5. 2 tsp Kosher Salt, more to taste
  6. ½ tsp MSG
  7. Warm a large pot with a lid over medium heat for 1 minute. Add in the neutral oil and popcorn kernels, cover and let fully pop. Once you stop hearing intense popping, remove the kernels from the heat and transport them to a large heat-proof bowl. Set aside.
  8. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter and brown it. Pour it over the popcorn. Toss the popcorn in cheddar powder, salt and MSG
Chicago Style Mixed Popcorn
  1. Toss the caramel popcorn and brown butter cheddar popcorn together in one large mixing bowl. Serve with plenty of napkins and CRUSH!

2023.06.08 11:00 Emotional-Bandicoot4 Was I overreacting?

So today I had what I believe to be a microagressive experience with other non-black muslims, but I would like to share my experience with everyone else to make sure I wasn’t over reacting in any way. Because I really do want to apologize if I was.
Yesterday, I was having a conversation in the WhatsApp forum “LA Muslims Popcorn Room” with a few other Muslim people. Mind you, this forum was meant to talk about controversial issues and entertainment. The conversation began with everything that’s happening in Cleveland, Ohio and all of the missing children. We were talking about how a lot of metropolitan cities have lotta corruption in the police departments which allow for this sort of thing to happen by classifying a lot of these children, who happened to be black, as runaways or delinquents. Since we live in Los Angeles, I brought up the fact that our own county has a really large catalog of these kinds of issues as well. Keep in mind I’m one of the only, if not the only, black person in this space. The conversation then starts to talk about a lot of different places in America that are unsafe and I start to find that they’re listing all of these places that are predominantly, African-American or Black. One of the female members of the group then goes on to say, and I quote: “Los Angeles is just so ghetto. I feel like I’m gonna get shot at anytime!” Now, we all know that the number one cause of crime is poverty and that is a systemic issue, as well as the fact that a lot of financial disparities exist between the average black home and the average non-black home in America and being in a metro city only amplifies that. I have no problems with people being honest about that fact.
However— the way in which she said it, and the fact that it really didn’t feel fitting for the conversation we were having because it was about children, really rubbed me the wrong way. It felt very microagressive, because Los Angeles is known as a predominantly African-American city, and a lot of the violence in the city is inadvertently linked to that community by the media, and so on and so forth. It gave me racist when she said that. She claims to have lived in Los Angeles her entire life, can be caught hanging out in some of the most gentrified areas including downtown and Inglewood or all the way in Orange County, which is the exact opposite of Los Angeles. I let her know that comment was not appropriate and can be considered racist and microaggressive because of the way she used it, the place she used it toward, and just the pure connotation of that word. Everyone in the group instantly begins to turn on me and say that it’s not even related to race, that anywhere can be ghetto, and she even went on to say that she lived in Europe for a while in Denmark and the area that she lived in, would be considered “ghetto”. I let them know the history between African-Americans in Los Angeles, and even provided them with articles & pieces of real research to show why what she was saying was wrong and offensive and no one cared. Even more so they (another person, same group) double down after I decided to not engage in this conversation any longer and they continued with the conversation, and discussed how black people have it better than white people when it comes to “privileges” because we have the privilege of not being labeled racist and bigots just for our skin color. (They let this conversation be led by the white person of the group. 🥴).
They also went on to ask which privilege would you rather possess: black privilege or white privilege? ….
I decided to just exit the group and every group that I was in as a result of meeting anyone in that circle because this was something that hurt me personally being as though I was having a conversation with the people I considered friends, as well as brothers and sisters in Islam. It’s like 2 AM and I’m writing this because I can’t sleep from just the discomfort and the disbelief but also the pain. It really did ruin my day actually. It’s given me an adverse experience about anyone stemming from that group because too many of them allow it and say nothing. It’s very bad behavior for Muslim ppl to exhibit especially in a “Muslim” chat room. Every black person, Muslim or not, I know would’ve been offended by what they said today and what they let her say to begin with. What I have noticed is that many non black Muslim people only say or act like muslims when they feel like it. They don't realize that it is an essential part of identity that should be used on all grounds. You cannot pick and choose when to be Muslim and when to act like a Muslim. The fact that they’re sitting there discussing it after playing dumb and denying such a big part of it. Racism within that portion of the Muslim community or any Muslim community that isn’t predominantly black is almost always expected from my perspective. I am uncomfortable around nonblack Muslims at this point. Many have such micro-aggressions that they are so oblivious to and they’re unbothered when corrected in their speech. It’s disgusting.

Stuff I can bring my parents in Tennessee
I'm going back home to see my family and I'm going to bring a mostly empty extra suitcase so I can bring back a few things. I thought it might also be a good idea to bring my parents some gifts and stuff they can't get out in the country. I thought it might be a good idea to bring some giardiniera since my dad loves pickled things and some frango chocolate for my mom. Also think maybe some Garrett's popcorn would be good?

2023.06.08 06:24 ChiraqKerouac program pioneer

In the heart of downtown Chicago, I stood wearing my Cartier frames, a lone silhouette amidst the buzzing crowds. The symphony of honking cars and hurried footsteps played in the background, as I found solace in the midst of chaos. A cigarette between my fingers, I inhaled deeply, feeling the smoke caress my lungs, momentarily shielding me from the world's demands. Lost in thought, I observed the passersby, their faces etched with exhaustion. Skyscrapers loomed above, reflecting the hues of the setting sun. The cigarette flame burned down, and I flicked its ember. Within me, that tranquil moment remained—an oasis of calm etched into my soul. As I walked the streets, my Cartier frames perched upon my nose, I carried that fleeting peace with me. The forgotten memory, a testament to the transient beauty of existence.

2023.06.08 03:05 TheDuzzyFuckling A Breakdown of the Splash Hits at Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T/Oracle Park

A Breakdown of the Splash Hits at Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T/Oracle Park
On Friday, June 2nd, 2023, Giants' first baseman Lamonte Wade, Jr. smoked the opening pitch of the game into McCovey Cove to take a 1-0 lead over the visiting Orioles. The historic home run was the 100th round tripper hit into the water by a Giants player since the best stadium in baseball (sorry Pittsburgh) opened in the year 2000.
While I found helpful data sources on and Baseball Almanac, I wanted to dig a little deeper into Splash Hit data by both the Giants and opposing teams, specifically because I knew Barry Bonds had the most waterballs, but I had NO idea who was #2. Let me throw some fun facts at you first - these will be great trivia questions for the other, more offline baseball fans in your life.

Splash Hit Fun Facts

  • While Giants players have now combined for 100 Splash Hits, all other opposing teams have combined for 55
  • Joc Pederson and Ryan Klesko are the only two players to have Splash Hits as members of the Giants and another team - the Dodgers and Cubs for Joc, and the Padres for Klesko
  • Including Joc, four players have hit more than one Splash Hit as members of more than one other organization - the others are Adam Laroche with the Diamondbacks and Pirates, Bryce Harper with the Nats and Phillies, and Carlos Delgado with the Mets and Marlins
  • The Diamondbacks are the opposing team that has hit the most Splash Hits with 8
  • No player on the Guardians, Tigers, Royals, Twins, Orioles, Yankees, Rays, Blue Jays, A's, or Mariners has hit one yet, mostly due to limited appearances in San Francisco (not the A's though, they just suck)
  • Tim Lincecum is the Giants pitcher who has given up the most opposing Splash Hits with 5, and ten other pitchers are tied for second with two
  • Barry Bonds hit the first Giants Splash Hit on 5/1/2000, while Todd Hundley of the Angels was the first opponent to hit one two months later on 6/30/2000
  • No right-handed hitter has ever clubbed a Splash Hit, although Buster Posey came close a few times
  • EXTREMELY GOOD TRIVIA QUESTION ALERT: Who was the second Giant after Bonds to hit one into the cove? Utilityman Felipe Crespo, who bounced around the league for five years, amassing ten career home runs... 20% wet dongs isn't bad.

Splash Hits by Giants Player

Here is the graph showing the top thirteen Splash Hit bombers for the Giants. No surprise that Barry Bonds is alone at the top (and will probably stay there until we get Ohtani next season).
Take a shot if you thought you'd see Aubrey Huff in this post.
I was pretty surprised that Brandon Belt was #2, considering that he never achieved the power numbers it seemed like he could. Regardless, hitting almost one Splash Hit per year as a Giant was enough to get him there. It's great to see current players Yaz, Lamonte, and Joc moving up each season, and I think Joc will take #2 from Belt if he stays a few more years.

2023.06.08 01:04 FuzzyHero69 Looking for 24/7 tank washes in Illinois - anywhere north of Peoria

I’m having trouble finding a 24/7 tank wash in northern IL. I need a wash on Sundays sometimes and it’s hard. I just need a cold water rinse in my tank.
I found Heniff in Joliet and Hazel Crest, but they aren’t 24/7. I’d prefer not to go too far into downtown Chicago if possible. Anyone out there have any secret spots?

2023.06.07 20:25 jimbobbypaul Ranking the Top 131 FBS Programs of the Last 40 Years: 79. Colorado State

Main hub thread with the full 131 rankings
The best Rams team west of the Mississippi.
Colorado State’s been consistently solid in the Mountain West with a few great years under Sonny Lubick and Jim McElwain mixed in. Lubick was so successful that Colorado State’s since named their field after him: Sonny Lubick Field at Canvas Stadium. Under his tutelage, CSU won 6 conference titles (3 WAC, 3 Mountain West) from 1994-2002. Before Lubick arrived, CSU hadn’t won a conference title in 40 years, and only 1 in the last 60. They owe this ranking to Lubick, and I think fans would admit the same.

Colorado State has a worse winning percentage than some teams lower on the list like Louisiana Tech, but has had higher highs with five 10 win seasons. Adept at producing quality skill position players lately, CSU’s 4 consensus All-Americans have been WR Rashard Higgins (2014), WR Michael Gallup (2017), TE Trey McBride (2021), and DB Greg Myers (1995). During the Lubick years CSU was a consistent top non-Power 6 team, appearing in the Top 25 at any point in the season for 7 straight years from 1997-2003. 1994 and 2014 as well. Notable NFL players have included LB Joey Porter, LB Shaquil Barrett, WR Michael Gallup, and TE Joel Dreessen.

Top 5 Seasons

Worst Season: 1988 (1-10 overall, 1-7 WAC)
It was a bad time to be a Colorado State fan. Colorado University, just a 1 hour drive from CSU, would win the national title 2 years later in 1990. Colorado State themselves floundered to a combined 2-21 record from 1987-88, with not much hope for the future. A 1-10 record featured 5 one-possession losses, and a last place finish in the WAC. A late season Toilet Bowl matchup between 1-9 New Mexico and 1-8 Colorado State decided who was placed in the basement, with New Mexico narrowly avoiding the distinction with a 24-23 win. CSU’s lone win was over San Diego State, who finished 3-8. QB Scooter Molander (great name) threw 9 TD to 22 INT, leading the country in picks. RB Scott Whitehouse (less cool name but still solid) led the team in rushing yards and receptions, totalling 1081 yards from scrimmage. And my personal favorite, backup RB Todd Yert, added 651 from scrimmage. Yert would actually go on to be a key contributor over the next 3 years, totalling 36 rushing TDs in his career.
5. 2014 (10-3 overall, 6-2 Mountain West)
Before Jim McElwain had his highs and lows at Florida, he was the up-and-coming coach at Colorado State. CSU was already coming off its best season in over a decade at 8-6 in 2013, and many thought they could take it a step further in 2014. CSU avenged last season’s loss to Colorado in the opener, winning 31-17 thanks to 100 yard rushing performances from RBs Dee Hart and Trevous Jarrells. They weren’t quite good enough to take down Boise State yet, the class of the WAC, and fell to 1-1. After that, things were great—they beat Boston College and future CSU coach Steve Addazio 24-21, a 10-4 Utah State team 16-13, and rival Wyoming 45-31. By the end of the year, #22 Colorado State was 10-1 playing 8-3 Air Force, and All-American WR Rashard Higgins did all he could (193 yards and 2 TD) but AF walked off on a 27-24 FG. CSU got blown out in the bowl to #23 Utah as well, once a former Mountain West rival who had since moved on to a stronger conference.
QB Garrett Grayson won Mountain West Offensive POTY, throwing for 4006 yards 32 TD 7 INT and ranking 2nd in the country in YPA. WR Rashard Higgins was a consensus All-American and a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, catching 96 passes for 1750 yards and 17 TD. Jim McElwain won MWC Coach of the Year, and was scooped up by Florida before the bowl game.
4. 2002 (10-4 overall, 6-1 Mountain West)
By this point in time, Sonny Lubick had established Colorado State as a non-AQ conference power, winning 5 conference titles in the prior 8 seasons. This was the last of them, and the 4th best team of his. Led by QB Bradlee Van Pelt, who was originally recruited by Nick Saban to play at Michigan State, the Rams’ season could not have started any better. He out-dueled Matt Schaub and Virginia on opening day, winning 35-29. After that was one of the biggest wins in school history, beating #7 Colorado 19-14. Van Pelt spiked the ball into a Colorado defender’s helmet after a 23 yard TD run to take the lead with 6 minutes remaining. called it “one of the most classless displays of sportsmanship the rivalry has ever seen.” Colorado State flirted with the top 25 most of the year, getting up to #16 by the end of the year to play UNLV. CSU lost both that game and the bowl game to TCU, but still clinched the Mountain West title. Wins included top 25 finishers Virginia and Colorado, along with 8-5 Air Force and 7-6 Louisville.
Van Pelt won his 1st of 2 Mountain West Offensive POTY awards, throwing for 2000+ yards while rushing for 819 and 11 TD. RB Cecil Sapp, who missed the entire 2001 season with a foot injury, was an absolute workhorse, leading the NCAA in rushing attempts, carrying the ball 347 times for 1601 yards and 17 TD. Lubick’s final season would be in 2007.
3. 2000 (10-2 overall, 6-1 Mountain West)
Colorado State moved from the WAC to the Mountain West in 1999, and won the conference title in their first year. Going into 2000, they aimed to repeat. They continued to make Colorado’s life hell, beating the #23 Buffaloes for the second straight year in the opener. After a letdown loss to Arizona State, CSU began its quest for a 2nd straight MWC title, beating eventual 3rd place UNLV 20-19, 5th place New Mexico 17-14, and finally BYU 45-21, clinching at least a share of the Mountain West title. That set up 8-1 Colorado State vs 6-3 Air Force for a chance to win the title outright. Air Force took an early lead and CSU only barely couldn’t come back, falling 40-44 in the snow. The Rams still clinched an outright conference title the following week with a 37-13 beating of a poor Wyoming team. With a win over #22 Louisville in the bowl, Colorado State finished #14 in the AP Poll, the highest in school history. QB Matt Newton won MWC Offensive POTY, while LB Rick Crowell won Defensive POTY.
2. 1994 (10-2 overall, 7-1 WAC)
When Sonny Lubick took over in 1993, it can’t be understated how much of a graveyard the Colorado State program was. Before a bowl appearance in 1990, they played in just 1 bowl in their entire history, which dates back to 1902. Armed with 29 year old Urban Meyer as assistant coach, the 1994 team was the best in school history up to that point, and might still be. And nobody saw it coming.
Colorado State started by beating one of the classes of the WAC in Air Force, 34-21. A few weeks later it was #22 BYU’s turn, beating the Cougars 28-21. All of a sudden the Rams were serious contenders in the WAC. Down for so long, the unthinkable happened. #23 Colorado State travelled to #6 Arizona, one of the favorites for the national title. A few hours after the opening kickoff, the Rams stood with their heads held high, victors in Tucson 21-16. The win propelled CSU to #13, and the Rams hosted #18 Utah 2 weeks later. Utah won in a let down game, but CSU won their last 3 games to finish 10-1 and win their first ever WAC title and first conference title under Lubick. A 14-24 loss in the bowl to #20 Michigan showed they could definitely hang with the big boys, and the Arizona win wasn’t a fluke. Colorado State finished #16 in the nation with a 10-2 record, and were 12th in my rankings. Lubick earned Sports Illustrated National Coach of the Year.
1. 1997 (11-2 overall, 7-1 WAC)
As good as the 1994 team was, they only beat opponents by an average of 11 points a game, while the 1997 team outscored opponents by over 20 a game. After a disappointing 2-2 start with losses to Colorado and 0-24 to Air Force, CSU was flawless the rest of the way. A 9-2 regular season record featured an average score of 43-11 in the final 7 game win streak. 9-2 New Mexico and 9-2 Colorado State seemed like an even matchup on paper but it wasn’t close, with the Rams winning 41-13. A 35-24 win over #19 Missouri in the Holiday Bowl made up for losing the Holiday Bowl twice in 1994 and ‘95. Colorado State finished 17th in the AP Poll, and according to my algorithm, this is their best team.
The team set a school record for points (442) and TDs (59) in a season, ranking 7th in the nation in PPG (36.7). The defense forced 43 turnovers in 13 games, with future NFL starters LB Joey Porter, LB Clark Haggans, and DB Jason Craft, and was also top 10 in the country giving up just 15.6 PPG. QB Moses Moreno won the WAC Offensive POTY with 2257 pass yards 20 TD 9 INT, and was a 7th round draft pick by the Chicago Bears after the season. RBs Damon Washington and Kevin McDougal both ran for 1000+ yards, combining for 2223 yards and 21 TD on 6.7 YPC.

5th Quarter

What do you think about Colorado State? Do you think they should be a primary target of Pac 12 expansion? Why or why not? What game/playeplay is most memorable to you? Can the Rams ever recreate the consistent success of Sonny Lubick or was it a flash in the pan?

2023.06.07 03:59 arrowhead_2 My job commute is eating my paycheck. Really confused about what to do.

Hi everyone. I work a hybrid job. 2 days in office. Currently, they are pushing for 3 days in office. I have car, but the parking is crap downtown Chicago. So I take UbeLyfts. A Lyft to work & back home is roughly around 37 dollars. That’s 140ish dollars every week. My salary is 45,000. It’s kinda making me stressed. Public transportation is extremely dangerous and violent, so I’m afraid of that. I’m really leaning toward the latter of leaving and finding something closer, therefore I can take my own car. Please give me some advice. Thank you.
