I have an uncle who is a huge Georgia Tech fan, and very enlightened compared to most of the "South will rise again" southerners.  However, he still refers to the Civil War as "The War of Northern Aggression".

And the main reason I'm sad he probably won't be a Buckeye?  It's simply because of all the lame Star Trek jokes I'll not be able to post about him, and the other ones the commentariat at 11W won't post.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Hopefully he doesn't have any Tribble in school.  His roommates might object.  I also foresee whatever school he ends up at having to post a forum topic on the Trekker club's website stating that "Giving Tribbles to Kirk is an NCAA violation, Giving Bat'leth's to Kirk is an NCAA violation, Giving Hamlet in Klingon to Kirk is an NCAA violation."  (and yes, Hamlet in Klingon is a real thing http://www.amazon.com/The-Klingon-Hamlet-William-Shakespeare/dp/0671035789)

DJ, did you drive to Boone through WV?  If so, why?  It should be shorter to take either 23 directly down until it becomes I-26 to I 40 to Boone, or route through Cincy, Kentucky, and Tennessee (It looks a lot longer, but trust me, 8-9 hrs either way).

Don't wear it in Atlanta, they teach that history about five times K-12.  My cousin was getting mad about learning it over and over by the time he graduated high school.

Comment 10 Dec 2014

My guess is that the state of Hawaii, and the school, don't want to help with matching some sort of funds for athletic programs (for instance, to repair the stadium, or build a new one).  That could certainly result in some major conflict, and depending on who is involved, it could also be an issue that he is not Hawaiian.

If Cincy were to keep Tuberville, I think they'd compete for the Big XII title year in year out.  The positive side of this is hopefully it could keep some of the Cincy Catholic school kids in Ohio, instead of Notre Dame or other points south.

I'd wager he called his agent when this happened, and his contract has a rider that says if he's in any kind of possible injury situation, he must go the ER and get checked out, so his agent told him, and they took him to the ER.  That's the best case scenario.

Harooooo... And don't forget the disembodied head of Richard Nixon, or little green men from outer space.

Comment 09 Dec 2014

I don't want trouble for the program, but I would love to be "interrogated" by one of these NCAA compliance officers.  It would completely be, "Do you have the legal authority to detain me?  Am I being denied Counsel?  Are you going to sue me for breach of verbal or implied contract? Do you understand that if you cannot prove these charges in a court of law, you will be getting sued for libel, personally?"

11W needs to have a book of Ramzy columns.  Seriously one of the best sportswriters on the planet.

Comment 24 Nov 2014

The Catch by Gonzo, and the 1998 game.  My best friend and I were in Scouts and out camping that weekend, and his dad had the game on radio (we were at Deer Creek state park, miserable weather), and I hated Lloyd Carr with a passion.  Now you might ask how could anyone hate Lloyd Carr.  Well, my 6th grade teacher, Mr. Kelly, bet the now Mrs. Kelly, another 6th grade teacher, that OSU would beat TSUN in 1997, and that the loser would have to purchase and display in their classroom, a cardboard cut out of the opposing team's coach.  I spent from late November 1997 to June of 1998 tripping over Lloyd Carr consistently in front of the whole class, and I learned to hate TSUN.
