Why all the BCS hype over LaMichael James?

Why all the BCS hype over LaMichael James? Topic: Flip case s view
April 25, 2019 / By Dani
Question: Media typically is biased, and in the case of the University of Nike Ducks' LaMichael James, this seemed to be the case. Granted all the hype was squarely on the shoulders of the Tigers' Cam and a smidge on Nike Ducks' Thomas Qs: ♦ 1. Sure, sure, sure the guy (LaMichael) was a yards beast during the regular season, but WHAT ABOUT Auburn's Michael Dyer? Dyer: 142 yards last night! Averaged 6.5 yards per carry last night! 37 yarder for his longest run. LaMichael, just 44 yards on 13 carries. ♦ 2. Was the media biased against Dyer?

1. Dyer smoked James in last night's game, no question about it. Auburn was able to shut down Oregon's 4th-ranked rushing attack (yet they kept foolishly going to it). 2. There was no bias. The hype over James was justified: * He had more rushing yards than any back in college football * Led college football in touchdowns with 24 * He is the best player in Oregon's offense * He is draft eligible yet returning to school * He was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy * He won the Doak Walker Award for Outstanding Running Back On the flip side, there was Dyer: * Wasn't even the leading rusher on his own team * Team revolved around Cam Newton, not Dyer * Freshman, not nominated for any awards * Caught one pass all year, thus viewed as a complementary back with Onterio McCalebb And Cam Newton: * Won every 'best player' trophy available including the Heisman * Led team in rushing and passing yards * Led team in rushing and passing TDs * Big scandal became off-field story No way was anyone else on Auburn going to be the story.

As for the names given to the various individuals by later writers, I don't know which they refer to. The New Testament identifies several men named James, using a variety of characteristics to distinguish them. Two of them are named among the apostles: Matthew 10:2 Here are the names of the twelve apostles:         first, Simon (also called Peter),         then Andrew (Peter’s brother), ==>        James (son of Zebedee),         John (James’s brother), 3      Philip,         Bartholomew,         Thomas,         Matthew (the tax collector), ==>        James (son of Alphaeus),         Thaddaeus, 4      Simon (the zealot),         Judas Iscariot (who later betrayed him). The brother of John / son of Zebedee, was the one killed by Herod: Acts 12:1 About that time King Herod Agrippa began to persecute some believers in the church. 2 He had the apostle James (John’s brother) killed with a sword. Another is the half-brother of Jesus, apparently a leader in the Jerusalem church, and widely considered to be the writer of the letter that bears his name: Matthew 13:55 Then they scoffed, “He’s just the carpenter’s son, and we know Mary, his mother, and his brothers—James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas. Acts 21:18 The next day Paul went with us to meet with James, and all the elders of the Jerusalem church were present. Galatians 1:19 The only other apostle I met at that time was James, the Lord’s brother. (since he is not named among the "apostles," Paul is apparently using the term here in its generic sense, "one sent") Galatians 2:9 In fact, James, Peter, and John, who were known as pillars of the church, recognized the gift God had given me, and they accepted Barnabas and me as their co-workers. They encouraged us to keep preaching to the Gentiles, while they continued their work with the Jews. James 1:1 This letter is from James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to the “twelve tribes”—Jewish believers scattered abroad. Greetings! (The writer of Jude, also thought to have been a half-brother of Jesus, identifies himself as "brother of James"). (Jude 1) Another, James the small (Greek: mikros, "less" is a poor reading here. It likely refers to age of stature.), is mentioned as the brother of Joseph and son of Mary (This MAY BE the half-brother of Jesus, as someone stated, but that cannot be stated with any certainty.): Mark 15:40 Some women were there, watching from a distance, including Mary Magdalene, Mary (the mother of James the small and of Joseph), and Salome. Still another is the father of the "other Judas" among the apostles: Luke 6:16     Judas (son of James),         Judas Iscariot (who later betrayed him).

James the Great was brother to the Apostle John. He is not mentioned in the Bible except in conjunction with John. James the Less was half-brother to Jesus. James the Less was "one of the pillars" of the church at Jerusalem. (Galatians 2:9, circa 35 AD) James the Less wrote the Epistle of James.(circa 60 AD) James the Great was slain by Herod in Acts 12:2 (circa 42 AD)

The outdated testomony the 1st Christian Bible on the time the Christian Bible became being shaped, a Greek translation of Jewish Scripture, the Septuagint, became in consumer-friendly use and Christians observed it via fact the outdated testomony of the Christian Bible. in spite of the shown fact that, around CE a hundred, Jewish rabbis revised their Scripture and popular an authentic canon of Judaism which excluded some parts of the Greek Septuagint. the fabric excluded became a team of 15 previous due Jewish books, written in the process the era one hundred seventy BCE to CE 70, that weren't contemporary in Hebrew variations of the Jewish Scripture. Christians did not persist with the revisions of Judaism and persevered to apply the textual content textile of the Septuagint via fact the outdated testomony. Protestant Bibles interior the 1500s, Protestant leaders desperate to set up the outdated testomony textile in accordance to the authentic canon of Judaism somewhat than the Septuagint. They moved the outdated testomony textile which became not interior the Jewish canon right into a separate part of the Bible reported as the Apocrypha. So, Protestant Bibles then blanketed each of the comparable textile via fact the faster Bible, in spite of the shown fact that it became divided into 2 sections: the outdated testomony and the Apocrypha. Protestant Bibles blanketed the Apocrypha till the mid 1800s, and the King James version became initially printed with the Apocrypha. in spite of the shown fact that, the books of the Apocrypha have been seen much less significant, and the Apocrypha became at last dropped from maximum Protestant variants. The books of the Apocrypha are additionally well-known via fact the deuterocanonical books. Catholic and Orthodox Bibles The Roman Catholic and Orthodox church buildings did not persist with the Protestant revisions, and that they proceed to base their outdated testomony on the Septuagint. the effect is that those variations of the the Bible have extra outdated testomony books than maximum Protestant variations. Catholic outdated Testaments comprise 1st and 2d Maccabees, Baruch, Tobit, Judith, The awareness of Solomon, Sirach (Ecclesiasticus), additions to Esther, and the thoughts of Susanna and Bel and the Dragon that are blanketed in Daniel. Orthodox outdated Testaments comprise those plus 1st and 2d Esdras, Prayer of Manasseh, Psalm 151 and third Maccabees. the recent testomony The Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox New Testaments are comparable.

I honestly don't know if I believe in Nibiru or not. If the planet is as big as most people say it is, and its only five years away from the Earth now, you would think we would be able to see it. We can see Venus from the Earth, and sometimes we can even see Mars (and no, nither one of them ever look as big as our moon, if you ever see anything that big in the sky, bend over and kiss your butt good bye, you're about to die) so if something Earth sized or larger is coming its almost a sure bet we'll see it. There is an asteroid due to pass VERY close to Earth around that time, but unless something changes, like it passes to close to another body in space, it'll miss us. There is a theory that Earth's moon formed from the Earth hitting another planet, so sure that asteroid could have been Nibiru once I guess its possiable, and the asteroid is all that's left. --"Jupiter. Jupiter's gravitational field is often good enough to "deflect" or "suck up" any potential threats" Not true, if that was the case, the moon would be smooth and clean, and we wouldn't have metor showers, or shooting stars, ect. Also that asteroid wouldn't be able to be passing by us soon, however, I'm sure Jupiter to some point does protect the Earth, just like Mars and all the other outter planets and moons, if they get hit, we don't. --"The planetary temperature would therefore change by over 200 degrees. It is difficult to imagine any life being able to survive such a temperature range, let alone an intelligent civilization." Most life cannot survive such things, but some life can, even some here on Earth. Its called a waterbear which can even live in outer space. Waterbears are a far cry from a Anunnaki, but it shows that life can survive. Between Pluto switching from behind and in front of Neptune, to that asteroid that is coming close to Earth, shows that orbit itself is possiable. But unless Nibiru has a thick dark cloud cover that is keeping people from seeing it, its either not there or not coming our way yet. Below is a reply to this same subject that I posted about a week ago that talks more about it, but from the 'its real' view point. Nibiru, to the Babylonians, was the celestial body associated with the god Marduk. The name is Akkadian and means 'crossing place' or 'place of transition'. The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform tablets and writings dating 5,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing". Please note that the two cultures that have never meet, and lived so far apart, both speak of a 'planet' and 'Crossing' in common. According to proponents such as renowned historian, Hebrew scholar, author, speaker and archaeologist Zecharia Sitchin and Burak Eldem the Nibiru appearing in Sumerian records correctly refers to a large planetary body. Their research proposes that it possesses a highly elliptical, 3630-year orbit. Such a planet would be approximately in the same orbit as 2000 CR105. For those of you that don't know what 2000 CR105 is, 2000 CR105, is the fourth most distant known object in the solar system after Eris, 2000 OO67 and Sedna, and is counted as a scattered disc object. It circles the sun in a highly eccentric orbit every 3240 years at an average distance of 219 astronomical units (1 AU being about equal to the mean Earth-Sun distance: roughly 150 gigametres). 2000 CR105 is important because, 2000 unlike other scattered disc objects in that at their perihelion distances, they are not within the gravitational influence of the planet Neptune. It is something of a mystery how these objects came to be in their current far-flung orbits. One hypothesis posits that they were pulled from their original positions by a passing star or a very distant and as-yet-undiscovered (albeit unlikely) giant planet. Unlikely or not, that hypothesis might just be the smoking gun for the Nibiru supporters. Nibiru might have a hidden allie! Which would help fit into that hypothesis, and add fuel to the fire. Muller's Nemesis theory is that our Sun has a companion star responsible for recurring episodes of wholesale death and destruction here on Earth. Nemesis is a is a common red dwarf star that would be visible through binoculars or a small telescope, if only we knew which of some 3,000 stars to look at. These are stars that have been cataloged, but their distances are not known. If Nemesis is real, it could explaine the 'crossing' planet if its trapped between the two suns, and does a figure 8 between them, crossing from one to the other, 2000 CR105 orbits every 3240 years, so if Nibiru was just a little bit past it, and did orbit both stars, that could explaine the other few hurand years. More proof on Nemesis and Nibiru can be found with Pluto. Seasonal change on Pluto is causing the planet to warm up even as it moves away from the Sun, according to two studies that also detected the first firm signs of weather on the tiny planet. Why would Pluto be warming up, unless it was getting closer to another sun, or near a large planet and the force of that planet's gravity tugging on it was causing the frection to heat the planet.
Alannah Originally Answered: Do you believe all the hype about nebiru??
I just did a search of 'Nebiru' on Google because I'd never heard of it. There was nothing about a planet. I think the hype is in your head. NIBIRU - ok! Sorry - misunderstood! I think it's unlikely to come to anything. A planet as large as they say would surely be visible by now and would have attracted attention from mainstream scientists. Also, there are many stories of prophecies by ancient cultures. I wonder - just how can they have known? They had active imaginations, I'll give them that, but you can't take ancient prophecies seriously. The world has already ended countless times according to prophecies. The mythology also mentions a race called the Anunnaki. Let's suppose it's all true, then usually their planet is way beyond Pluto and very very cold. Then every 3600 years it approaches the inner solar system and warms up. The planetary temperature would therefore change by over 200 degrees. It is difficult to imagine any life being able to survive such a temperature range, let alone an intelligent civilization. In other words - not to worry.
