i drive a 2001 chevy cavalier, which is generously called a "car" and doesn't even have a tape deck, nevermind some kind of mythical defrosting fairies
nah not on campus and it's a one off thing so we're good
a better phrase might be "literally the smallest value above zero, but not all"
i mean, literally the entire point of my post is that kneejerk reactions to one game, especially at the beginning of the season, are dumb as hell for a reason. pointing out that the team was "soft," for example, makes no sense because they obviously weren't since they went on to win every single game after that. all it does is to allow people to look really stupid in retrospect.
yeah i agree that ed warinner is 10 star garbage and that rod smith shouldve been starting and urban was a loss away from his heart exploding and that JT barrett had no obvious talent
i struggled with how much i wanted to put certain dudes on blast but in the end i settled for the high road and left these anonymous. not sure if that was the right call re: the meyer comment, but eh. im not made of stone.
And he didn't burn the South to the ground, just a large swath from Atlanta to the sea.
and honestly he didn't even really do that. the mythology around sherman and his march has been so built up over the years by southerners who wanted to portray him as the devil himself that they've forgotten that that's exactly what he wanted them to do in the first place.
he's this eternal boogeyman for many people in the south, and while he has no reason to be, the fact that his face alone pisses off people who are 150 years removed from a society that had to be forced at gunpoint to stop enslaving people means that we are DEFINITELY going to put him on a shirt to mock those same people.
what's funny is that legitimate scholarship on sherman's march has already been changed for decades. it's been painfully obvious for along time that the march to the sea wasnt nearly as destructive as he or generations of future southerners would leave people to believe. but it's taken a while for lost cause revisionists and southern apologists to figure that out for themselves.
i honestly hope they take that same attitude cuz pantoni is going to kill them if they do
hooray for me, jared. HOORAY FOR ME
