Mine is hands down Kill.  Met him at the OHSFCA Clinic.  Couldn't be a nicer guy.  Very gracious, witty and just plain a nice guy.

Finally someone with some sense.  There are only sooo many things you can do with a uniform and when your colors are orange and brown there are even fewer!!  I sell uniforms for a living.  It is soo hard to outcool something.  Also, noone is ever satisfied.  If I had a dime for every time someone said oh thats nice but you should have done this...I wouldn't have to sell uniforms!!  I'm not a browns fan but I personally like the uniforms.

P.S. It seems the majority of 11Wites do not like uniform change.  Period.  Whether it's the Browns, Buckeyes, TCU etc.  80% say NOOOOO!  In the immortal words of John Winger...Lighten up Francis!

Point taken.  And I never heard you say that it was right or anything like that, my argument was more that it's not ok for anyone.  And I will certainly agree with you on the social class, standing and perceived intelligence as a factor.  That may be one of the most insightful things that I have ever heard regarding the subject.

 My great grandfather came from a different time (not an excuse, just fact) and used the word like he was getting paid each time he said it.  He used it as a noun, an adjective, a verb...you name it and I learned at a very early age that it was an ugly vulgar (for lack of a better word) term.  I have never used it in my life because of that.  He was an embarrassment to me.

It's an ignorant word regardless of who speaks it, white, black, Asian, Eskimo...it doesn't matter.  I'm sick and tired of hearing "well its ok if a black guy says it".  No it's not.  It's not ok for anyone to say it.  In the kids twitter "apology" he said it was said in jest.  Bullsh*t.  It's a lame excuse because you got caught.  We all know it is historically used as a derogatory term towards blacks.  Spare me the history lesson.  He should be punished. Period.  End of sentence, end of argument.  There is no justification for the use of that word.  I am a 49 year old white male.  Several of my closest friends are black and several of my top employees are black and in ALL the years of known each of them I have NEVER heard them use the term, nor have I EVER heard them justify someone else using it.  You are correct that it does not "create" racism.  It perpetuates it.

I'm rooting for Laquon Treadwell from Ole Miss.  Dude is coming back from a horrific and unfortunate leg injury.

I cannot wait to see Curtis Samuel unleashed.  He is the recruit I have been most excited about since he got here.  I am one of those that thought he was the best running back on the team around the third game last season...until Zeke bashed me in the skull and woke me up to the truth!

Noone underneath him so he's not gonna hurt anyone.  He can't let go of the rim because he'll kill himself but I don't think he needed to swing his legs that high...they're higher than his head.  That's not all momentum.  I think it's a good call.  You hate to see that at the end of a game though.  

As for Defiance's inferiority complex...Defiance was 27-2.  I hardly call that David vs Goliath.  Looks like they've been pretty good since 09/10.  21-4 last year...22-2 in 11/12...You make it sound like they came out of nowhere...4 guys over 6'4...one at 6'7...I don't know.  look pretty good to me.
