    If the Texans can do a thread about Texas medical schools and hotcakes we can do one too, only better.

    you don't get it. our schools are so great, that they each deserve multiple forums, which TX doesn't have. we can't talk about all of our great schools on one forum. maybe if you did socal and norcal... but even then... you think you can get UCSF, Stanford and UCLA into one room? hells no.

    actually 101 in the san francisco area, particularly going towards the san mateo bridge, is actually a pretty pleasant drive. it's one where i average 95 mph.

    No way man, nothing beat 280 in the bay. 280 has crystal springs reserve and the fog rolling over the hills. 101 has the aftermath of the dot com buzz....and Ikea.

    Yep- 280 past the resevoir- traffic is always moving faster than the 101.

    Haha, yeah, please let us know when you reach over five threads of 1000+ posts...plus the other random ones that pop up once in a while about Texas waitlists and withdrawals, which aren't included in the big threads.

    You guys from California are still bitter because a Texas football team came in on your turf, and won the national championship. When will you guys finally get over it? It was only a game!!:laugh:

    Hey, don't belittle yourselves by trying to compete with Texas. You've already won -- it's not like there's any contest. :)

    Just don't move to Oregon. Californians are always raising the real estate values in pdx and still bitching about the rain. :mad:

    Yes, that football victory seals the deal. Screw beautiful beaches, mountains, nice weather, liberals (;) ) -- all things that make life nice. Football -- that's how you determine how good a state is. :rolleyes: :)

    Hell, by that logic Oklahoma rocks, and believe me, Oklahoma doesn't win anything except having the most smokers, the most poor people, and the most fat people. :D

    Ain't no WAY UCLA is "Nor Cal". Sorry.

    It'd end up being UCSF/Stanford/UCD and UCLA/USC/UCSD/UCI. But hell, both of THOSE groups are way too much to talk about as they are. The only option - make a thread for every single school. Yes, I'm aware I'm ignoring a few of the private schools, but I can't remember them all. :)

    PS. We *could* do the "How many schools do you have in the top 20?" thing vs. Texas, but I think most of us Californians have a little more class than that.

    What happened to your team this year? Oh thats right they lost Young and blew dick hard.
    You also have a worthless piece of crap coach who doesnt mind voting his team #1 just to get into a BCS game.

    Cal ripped Texas A&M a new a-hole in their game this year. Texas doesnt have much to brag about if you ask me.

    How many times has USC won it? Also you are talking about a game that happened two years ago. At least USC doesnt fall into the unranked following a championship run.:rolleyes:

    Dude, I'm not talking about any game. I don't actually watch football or pay attention to who wins, hence my assertion that it's a stupid reason to feel good about your state. Too bad you fell into the trap. :rolleyes:

    Nothing beats the drive on the 5 from OC to San Diego...not a lot of traffic on the weekends (except at Del Mar) and driving next to the beach makes me happy. :love:

    Okay, so I made some comment about football being a stupid measure for state worthiness and used my state as an example. We have a good football team but are generally a [email protected] state. You totally misread (or misunderstood or something) my comment and decided to get into some pissing contest about which state has a better football team, which is entirely beside the point and just plain obnoxious. That's being an a&&hole.

    Taking the coast all the way down would take a while...

    I did that drive on the 5 last year and it was a little over 7 hours.

    Half of California doesn't like the other half and the other half doesn't care. That's why you can't have a California thread.
