    That seems pretty bad. Working in the industry, you see some extravagant prices from vendors for something to be given a nuclear safety-related pedigree. Thought that was the case here, but reading the article it looks like they were using safety related items in places they weren't needed, which is the issue.

    These people should be thrown in prison. They are no better than politicians

    “We were told cost doesn’t matter,” said one engineer, who, like others, asked not to be named for fear of being blackballed by other companies in the industry. “Can you imagine that mentality? Cost doesn’t matter?”

    Way worse than most politicians imo.

    This is just criminal in context for what they were paying:

    Westinghouse made 15 cents on every dollar for materials, according to the original 2008 construction contract. The more it spent, the more it made. That didn't change until the Pennsylvania-based company agreed in 2016 to finish the nuclear reactors for a fixed price.

    Everyone involved in the base load review act getting passed should also be held 100% accountable.

    Signing the contractor on a job of that magnitude to cost based on a markup is fucking dumb.

    Its right. Both are #1's so the bracket determines it. Top half of the bracket where Dutch Fork is has the (H).

    DB Jamyest Williams will play and be 100%, WR Shi Smith will play but might not be 100% (ankle), LB Antoine Wilder doubtful. Not sure about our OL, think we finally got everyone back to 100% pretty much

    Someone should make a game thread; I like keeping this one for friendly talk about all things Palmetto State :palmettosmug:

    Would anyone post very much in said thread before game time? Doubtful. The game being Thanksgiving week always kills some of the buildup now. Plus yall are pussies that hide on a private board and we're nonchalant cool guys who only discuss sports sometimes

    I watched you guys beat NC State and the offense looked pretty good. Then I watched you guys play Florida and I am not sure how to describe what I saw. I didn't watch much in between.

    We're mediocre. Y'all are good. Our whole plan for victory relies on catching breaks and riding momentum. Which sets up pretty perfect because it's a home night game and our coach is a get fired up maniac named Boom. If you have tix I'd prob go ahead and sell tbh

    Deebo Samuel getting hurt is an obvious difference there. RB Rico Dowdle as well. Pretty amazing we've achieved the record we have even given the weak schedule when you consider our injuries to a roster that was in flux from the end of the Spurrier days

    Maybe a little. Definitely more sound defensively, force a lot of turnovers.

    What’s the general consensus on Jake Bentley so far in his career? Seems like he’s been pretty underwhelming (perhaps the expectations were set way too high?).

    Throws high. Doesn't do much reading of the field. Good leader. Can make some wow plays once in a while

    He misses a bunch of throws he shouldn’t but i think in general, he makes everyone else better but a bad o line and uncreative play caller hold him back. Interesting tug of war.

    For future word docs, on the private board I predicted us to cover.

    This was based on the fact we killed you last year and I dont think Bentley is accurate enough to do what Cuse and NC State QBs did to our defense.

    Feel free to quote and mock if we dont cover.
