The logic fails are too many to comprehensively address. Thank you for your service, and as all of us who wear the uniform know, opinions are like... As an Ole Miss graduate and longtime MS resident I am entirely aware that the confederate flag is so omnipresent in life that it has ceased to have negative connotations for many people and instead represents home. I get that. But their ignorance as to why the flag was created, why it has been flown by the states after the war (as an fu to the federal government government after desegregation) and what the flag means to those who were terrorized by it under the Klan does not on its own justify its presence at the state level. So start with the articles of secession of each state and understand the "heritage" you are really promoting. It is simply inconceivable that a state government should actively fly a flag of segragation in 2015. While removing the flag from state sponsorship will not "end" racism, that is not a reason to not act.However, I encourage individual citizens to fly a flag of treason created by people who picked a fight they couldn't finish. It helps the rest of us know where the morons are.

The term "butthurt" is the kind of term I consider as best used by type of fans that the comic satirizes. Like tweeting recruits, just don't do it. I know no offense is intended, but the term needs to die. Let's keep 11W a cut above... http://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2013/1/10/3861312/memo-this-word-is-dead-now

Yup. Toledo. That's why I practice law SO HARD in the paint.

I immediately had that 2013 Big Ten championship football flashback. When you need one yard and you have a guy named either 1. Beast Mode or 2. El Guapo you RUN THE DAMN BALL.

I can't wait to watch the Buckeyes take the field in Blacksburg. There will be blood. On a related note, I spent a year as a geo-bachelor in DC. I had never considered VT fans to be a particularly noteworthy fanbase, they never seemed worth even considering one way or the other. I have to say, all fanbases has some jackasses but theirs really has some virulent morons. I have since met some of the good fans but between the DC experience and the game last year I am really, really going to enjoy rolling into that town with the Buckeye hordes before watching the hokies getting rolled up on the field.

I lived in Mississippi for eleven years and I disagree. There is nothing that Southern masculinity is more tied into than college football and the "war against the states". If Southerners can to this day beat their chests about the SEC and lionize Nathan Bedford Forest and men like John Hunt Morgan (who raided Ohio and was also a major jerk) then I can take my troll level to EXPERT with WTS. It's all in good fun. Also, the prevailing historical views on Sherman's march are shifting. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/11/15/us/150-years-later-wrestling-with-a-revised-view-of-shermans-march.html?referrer=&_r=0

"Thousands who had been deceived by their lying papers into the belief that we were being whipped all the time, realized the truth, and have no appetite for a repetition of the same experience." Letter, Sherman to Henry W. Halleck, December 24, 1864. Also, Urban Meyer to Jim Delany, 5 Jan 2015.

Time will tell but it sure looks like another embarrassment of riches from a talent perspective. Also of great significance, they seem like good kids. So long as we generally stay in the top 5-10 in rankings year in and out, I don't worry about who is number one. I trust our coaches to get the right players for OUR team. 

By the way, anyone have any idea how many five stars we fielded versus how many Oregon and Alabama fielded?

Comment 19 Jan 2015
Concur completely in the long term. In the short term, I was just hoping someone could superimpose Saban's face on R.E. Lee and Meyer and assistant coaches/players on Grant and company.

Hah, me too. I made batches with Old Crow (US Grant approved), Early times (on sale at the USCG exchange) and EW black label. I also filled a mason jar with some sailor jerry rum. Old Forester is next.
