Spy- If I'm not mistaken, your Eagles only lost to the WolfPack (an ACC school) by one point?
Couldn't watch Vols-Utah State because Time Warner has no contract with the SEC Network (which means a block from the ESPN Online feed). Apparently I did not miss anything.
With the Mocs playing Jax State at 5:00 PM D-town time, I may end up taking the straight drive to Denton via I-35 E and check out North Texas vs. SMU (kickoff at 11:00 AM). Will fill you in on all the details the following Monday.
Good read yesterday by Hargis regarding the behind the scenes happenings up at Mt. Pleasant. Apparently Jacob took it real hard but was shocked reading this morning that the OC takes most of the blame on this. They didn't stick with what worked in the first half? What the FRUIT????
Stewwie- I picked up on the stagger-step (good phrasing). For those not following, the first 3-4 games appear to be night games (5-6-7PM start times) while the rest are daytime. Makes sense.
Well there is some good news. Assuming Jacob quits the Romo mindset and everyone stays healthy at practice, there is zero competition and a double/header for those wishing to go to Knoxville on Saturday and then haul "rhymes with grass" down I-75 (I know a couple of people who did for basketball).
Chattanooga vs. Jax State: 6:00 PM
Tennessee vs. Arkansas State: 12:00 PM
Alabama vs. Florida Atlantic: 12:00 PM
Georgia - BYE
Stewwie - The good news (by football standards) is Shafaat and Rayl got more "banged-up" then anything. While it is wait and see, Russ has stated they will be on the field for Jax State. So they're not done for the season. Still, while nothing is guaranteed, a win against an FBS opponent not in the fatcat five would have all but assured a three near filled Finley. Now we're back to wait and see.
I'm not going to lie, other then a less then a handful plays and hand to the face foul on Davis Tull that was clearly 100% HORSE&^%$!, the defense was steller. Not going to lie again: The offense PLAYED like the COWBOYS!
(that is not a complement)
If that happens again, Russ needs to make Jacob wear a jersey that says Romo on it (because there was absolutely no difference whatsoever! >.<
OG - You're welcome.
Spy - Ted Danson was on "Becker" which aired on CBS in the late 90s. He played a xenophobe doctor who made Grouchy Smurf look like Barney the Dinosaur. He is currently on CSI: Whatever (too many; lost count).
I know GSU is playing "Duck U" (not Oregon but the other Duck U.) on November 29th. Will laugh if they make an appearance at "The Paul".
Right about witness protection. Most of the television rights will be ESPNU (boonies on most cable/satellite affiliates), ACC Network (very regional), though the Navy game is scheduled for CBS (interesting)
O.o While shocked Styles said that, not really. Remember, as much as I've enjoyed the mellow sage Jeff, this is guy who follows no-name bands and no-name events that do not appeal to anyone other then his clique. He'll follow Georgia Dog football (for obvious reasons not related to the fact the station broadcasts the games) but he's always talked to JR about the Mocs in this passive tone like "they still have a football team?" Kinda sad when your the flagship personality. But it was better then the hot air coming from the Nth degree this morning. Waste of airtime.
Geez Stewwie, I understand devil's advocate but considering the rampet thuggery from the previous programs, Russ has done what no one in the post Joe Morrison era has ever done: build a consistent winning program out of next to NOTHING. I've been a Mocs fan since the Buddy Green era and I wouldn't trade the last two years for anything other then we shot ourselves in the foot on some close games. I use to joke about Three Doors Down singing our school fight song. As we speak here at work I am the ONLY Mocs fan in DFW with his Power C golf shirt on and flying his Chattanooga Mocs car flag in the parking lot. I've turned down two seasonal positions at work because they wanted me to work on Saturdays (offered them Sundays but they refused). Call me delusional, but sometimes I think I'm more superfan then that Buddy fella (beer belly guy with the van). I grant you that's a stretch but Texas can hook'm horns all they want. This is Christmas Day. Win or Lose.
The only one I can think of is a comic character: Walter "Pee Wee" Harris from Boys Life (Eagle Scout here). However, Pee Wee's real name is Paul Rubin. The character was actually created by both himself and the late Phil Hartman when they were both student/performers with "The Groundlings". It was originally suppose to be a parody of kid show hosts from both their childhoods back when such shows were both local and popular. The character was mainly local until HBO decided to do a special and of course, the Tim Berton movie which led to the TV series and the rest was history.
No major questions as much as I'm trying to keep the Ju-Ju positive. I get both nervous and excited on game day.
Thanks MT! :)
