  3. As someone who supported Muschamp, I am ashamed and quite honestly, it almost gives me a sick feeling in my stomach when I think about him. I really don't know how someone could be so out of touch or not care as much as he seemed not to care, especially in the last two seasons. I am so glad he is gone. It truly feels like new life. I also want to see true effort, and for the players to care, and not give up. I am hoping for a winning season, or at least .500, but I will be happy if we win the ones we should, and fight for everything in the ones we aren't supposed to win.
  4. I still have some Bloom County books somewhere in my stuff. My favorite quote from Bloom County was a song I think Opus made up, and it said "Oh baby, baby, you're tearing me to pieces, would you love me any less, if my tush looked like Ed Meeces's". I don't think any comic strips will ever compare to the triumvirate of Bloom County, Calvin and Hobbes, and The Far Side.
  5. Great article! I am usually excited for Gamecock football to start, but I haven't been this excited in quite a few years. I really believe that our greatest football days are ahead of us.
  6. I can't remember what article it was, but I read one earlier in the week that said A&M was in on this from the beginning, but they had to make it look like they didn't want it. I think the vote shows that to be true. If OU and UT aren't in the league next year, or the following, I will be very surprised. I don't see them waiting to 2025 to be in. I realize that it's about money, but from a football standpoint, I don't know why either one of them want to be here. It's going to be tough on both teams, but if Sarkisian can't get Texas improved quickly, they are going to get their
  7. They definitely add far more credibility to the conference in baseball than they do in football.
  8. They were supposed to be playing tonight at Heritage Amphitheater in Simpsonville.
  9. I read one article, I've read so many lately that I can't remember which one was which, that I agree with. I think you will wind up with three levels of football, and three national championships. There will be the big boy conferences or league, the middle of the road, like Coastal, San Diego State, Boise State, and then your lower level like Furman, North Dakota State and others. I think there will be a playoff for each level. I have read that all of this was planned and orchestrated, and isn't over, yet. Time will tell. I hope it all works out for the best, but
  10. I seriously doubt it. I believe they will be in the SEC next season, but 2023 at the latest.
  11. I agree with you about the cupcake games. It’s absolutely absurd for an FBS team to play and FCS team, or whatever names they go by now. I don’t understand why OK wants to come to the SEC. I get that it’s about making more money in the league, but this will greatly hinder their pretty much yearly shot at the playoff. They play a tougher schedule than Clemson, but it’s the same, basic formula.
  12. I thought this scenario was kind of cool. It would be good for us.
  13. I’m sorry to backtrack, because I forgot about the count, but I couldn’t let this post go by without mentioning it. My grandfather was one of the engineers who helped design this plane, and he was the head of the cowl department at Republic Aviation on Long Island, while these planes were in production. He was a very determined man. He grew up poor, and did not have money to go to school, but instead, went to the library, and studied every book he could get his hands on to learn, and taught himself how to be an engineer. He was incredibly proud of this plane, and how durable it was. He u
  14. I’m sorry, but I can’t believe anything he ever says. He uses the “what about the players” line, which is as much of a crock as when you hear people say @what about the children”, it’s always a veiled excuse for what someone wants. Basically, he is complaining about having to play more than one tough opponent in a row, which is what happens in the SEC week in and week out. Dabo’s concern in playoff expansion is that there is a greater chance Clemson will be exposed. They play weak opponents all season, so they typically don’t have injury issues like teams who play a real schedule. The more
