I appear to be in the vast minority in these parts, but Ive never understood the fascination with Rod Smith.  Everyone likes to talk about his freak athleticism and crazy speed, but I have never seen these things manifested on the field.  I haven't noticed Meyer or any of the coaches ever mentioning him with the fastest players, like when they are always talking about Dontre and Samuel.  And then there are the Eddie comparisons that a lot of people have made, which seems almost blasphemous. 

Don't get me wrong, Im sure he is a good athlete and would see playing time at a lot of schools, Ive just never seen anything as impressive as a lot of people here seem to have noticed.  Not to mention the ball security problems.  Anyway, not being a smartass, just my 2 cents.

It is unfortunate that these sorts of topics still even need to be discussed, and my apologies as well since we are aware that 11W is not the appropriate arena to have said discussions.  Maybe in a few hundred years we can simply treat fellow human beings just as that, human beings. 

I spent 4 glorious years on campus and was unaware of this ALT celebration you speak of.  Ill check it out if I get back to campus around that time frame.

And since we have so many historians here, we also must acknowledge all of the struggles the Irish people have gone through. From the potato famine to "the troubles" to being called "white negroes" once arriving in the US to escape the injustice they were already facing in the UK. In fact the Irish were given the same status as the recently freed slaves in America. They were constantly degraded and encountered signs like "no Irish need apply" when looking for jobs. 

Every single ethnic group has gone through some sort of bullshit throughout history.  I think we should all move on, stop continually undermining the idea of equality by constantly pointing out our differences, and stop living in the past. Apparently though, it seems many people would prefer to dwell on events that took place centuries ago. To each their own I guess.

Congratulations on your charity work. I'll rephrase, I highly doubt that many of the people commenting here work directly with charities or foundations that specifically and solely support Native Americans.  If that sign or the goobers' outfits in the stands offend you, I'll simply agree to disagree.  I also disagree that there was anything egocentric about my comment.  To the contrary I was talking specifically about other people. 

Is any of that crap politically correct?  No. Is it a big deal?  Apparently to some.  Does Notre Dame's mascot offend you?  Are you supporting any charities for Irish people and the awful impact of that cartoonish mascot?  The difference is no one gives a shit about that and it is simply laughed off.  I don't have the time or energy to get all up in arms every time some jackass makes a racist comment. At the end of the day, life goes on.

Who cares. People are so fucking sensitive anymore. And all this fake outrage about it, not one person here complaining about it is going to a damn thing to change it.  If you have time to get all upset about some college kid making a sign, you need to find something to do with your life.

LMAO.  Whether you are trolling or just plain dumb, thanks for the laughs.

Haha, they still look cool, I just personally prefer the fitted hats over snapback ones.  Thanks though!

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Cool!  Any chance of fitted hats in the future?

Kinda surprised. It was only just a few weeks ago that urban said cardale had the spot locked down.

Man there's a lot of bourbon threads on this site. Not that there's a problem with that, but it's kinda funny. Sorry I don't have anything to actually contribute to answer your question. Though I do like drinking the stuff. 

Edit: just out of curiosity, I googled it, maybe this will help.  And did you go to kenston?  I spent some time in bainbridge also. Years back.

A number of what other things?

He lines up, braces himself, throws a wound up haymaker at a kids face who is not even looking or aware of what's about to happen. 

Regardless of what was said verbally to the other party, there simply is not any justifiable reason for his actions. 

And yep, subjective is a much better description of your comments than objective.

Correct. It's not. However, your description of him hitting the dude in the middle of the track, on purpose, in a vehicle, at a high rate of speed, would be considered murder or vehicular homicide with intent to inflict great bodily harm. That is premeditation.
