to do our part. I was involved in Lucy early on, but got pulled into broader government mandated IT security stuff for the last 3 years. Now that that bureaucratic stuff is done, I’m back to working on missions and science. Our next mission is called PUNCH, a multi-satellite mission to characterize the behavior of the Sun’s atmosphere. Good luck to you guys on your launches!

Lucy is on her way
Lucy just separated from the launch vehicle, so she’s on her way. Lots of things still to happen, the unfurling of the solar panels being a big one, but so far things are looking good.

It's pretty cool
If I do say so myself. The Jupiter Trojans are fossilized remnants of the formation of the solar system, hence the mission’s being named after the Lucy fossil. The spacecraft will fly by several of them to measure things like the surface properties and chemical composition. Those measurements will help us better understand how the solar system formed.

From what I've seen on the field
25th is being generous.

I have to say
that in my own coaching career when I had teams in similar situations, going back to the basics led to great improvement in our play, so I am inclined to agree with you. Football is ultimately about blocking and tackling. If you can’t do those things, I don’t care how fancy your scheme is, it isn’t going to work.

There is still a lot of football to be played
but I was given some grief in last week’s post game thread for saying that Ga Tech was a decent team.

Is what it’s called. When we succeed we tend to attribute it to our skills and forget to consider random events that worked in our favor. Success has elements of both skill and luck.

"They made one more critical play than we did"
Pardon my French, but bullshit. Doeren and crew outcoached Dabo’s crew significantly today. Clemson’s coaches haven’t, as far as I can tell, made a single change to the way they approach the offensive part of the game. The only reason they’re not 0-4 is because Venables commits to doing whatever is needed to get the best out of the players he has. Coaches that are wedded to a system are lacy fools. The good ones adjust their thinking to give their players the best chance to win. You see that in Venables. Elliot? No.

I feel like a broken record, but success at the highest level begins in the trenches. It’s dirty, ugly, unsexy as hell, but it’s how you win consistently.
