Did the guy from Butler turn us down? If so we still have The Iron Sheik/My Pillow Guy and CoCo B-Ware waiting in the wings! (and Mick Foley said he'd like to throw his hat/mask in the ring!)

I say at this point the university should run a national add for a gigantic HORSE tournament that anybody can enter. Put it on the Big 10 Network, and the winner gets the job.

There is no evidence if he was offered or not offered.

Two have declined the job based on family situations. Young is a widower who didn’t want to uproot his four children. The Creighton guy accepted the job and even participated in a zoom recruiting call before his wife and family put a kabosh on it.

Other than those two, everything else is just guessing and rumor. Many names have been brought up by posters, other posters get excited and it takes on a life of its own. Then when it becomes apparent that that isn’t the guy, the narrative is that Illinois was turned down. We don’t even know if they were ever even considered.

Underwood has never had trouble filling out good staffs. He obviously has a plan that he is following and is not worried about a few message boards fans.

I have friends who are Illini fans who aren’t on message boards and they barely know there is an opening and they certainly aren’t fretting about it. Lol

Interesting article while waiting for THE REALLY IMPORTANT news on AC3.........................

  • Is the universe a conscious being, like a gigantic widely dispersed human brain?
  • Scientists have long questioned how consciousness and science mix.
  • Two mathematicians have turned one theory into a crunchable math model.
In upcoming research, scientists will attempt to show the universe has consciousness. Yes, really. No matter the outcome, we’ll soon learn more about what it means to be conscious—and which objects around us might have a mind of their own.
The revolutionary thing in IIT isn’t related to the human brain—it’s that consciousness isn’t biological at all, but rather is simply this value, phi, that can be calculated if you know a lot about the complexity of what you’re studying.

If your brain has almost countless interrelated systems, then the entire universe must have virtually infinite ones. And if that’s where consciousness accumulates, then the universe must have a lot of phi.

Hey, we told you this was going to get weird.

“The theory consists of a very complicated algorithm that, when applied to a detailed mathematical description of a physical system, provides information about whether the system is conscious or not, and what it is conscious of,” Kleiner told All About Space. “If there is an isolated pair of particles floating around somewhere in space, they will have some rudimentary form of consciousness if they interact in the correct way.”

Kleiner and Tull are working on turning IIT into this complex mathematical algorithm—setting down the standard that can then be used to examine how conscious things operate.

Think about the classic philosophical comment, “I think, therefore I am,” then imagine two geniuses turning that into a workable formula where you substitute in a hundred different number values and end up with your specific “I am” answer.

The next step is to actually crunch the numbers, and then to grapple with the moral implications of a hypothetically conscious universe. It’s an exciting time to be a philosopher—or a philosopher’s calculator.

This is getting to be boneyard material....

I get emails like this periodically. Sometimes they slip through the spam filters.

You may be asking the wrong questions. We know the universe is constantly expanding. If the universe is also conscious, we need to be ready with an answer when it asks: "Does this galaxy make me look fat?"

I don’t know….the way the galaxy has been behaving lately, I wouldn’t expect it to ask anything more complicated than “do you want fries with that?”

This post and the next one are why I posted the article....humorous responses that made me smile and has brought about participation in thought...
Is the article spam ?????....
of course it is, as most of the home page of MSN is, but it has brought responses and with responses comes understanding of different viewpoints...
some may want to ignore me or the subject matter , but the most important fact is it exacted a response, and as we all know,a unanimous opinion was not going to happen......
I find different opinions to be enlightening and educational....

But thats just me.....

If the universe is expanding but you stay the same size, then it follows logically that the universe is slimming.
Hmmmm...
Picture a balloon and you are inside the balloon with the ability to still inflate the balloon......
using you as you and the balloon as the universe and you stay the same but the balloon universe is still inflating or expanding ????

hmmmm...not seeing it sacraig , but it feels good to expand the brain with the conscious thought..................

Compared to the balloon, you're getting smaller. I.e. "slimming". ;)

Kind of like my adult daughter telling me recently that I'm not as big and scary as she remembered. Well, maybe not as big.

ahhhhhhhhhhhh...
Since I am part of the universe, it's logical .......
From the comparable's i get it...

Thank you Ransom, you scary brother in arms....
