MT —

Understand the bar argument. But the life expectancy back in the day was like 42 years because we used leeches to treat blood diseases.

Why should we live with it when we know it to be wrong.

We think if Fulmer had been allowed to stay, the Vols would be decidedly better. Dude could always recruit, and the talent would be much better and would have stayed longer. The attrition has been every bit as damaging as Dooley.

OG —

Solid list, and MT's right in that everyone's list can be right.

Munson? Munson? Larry Munson, right?

BiB —

Thanks for the scoop. That would make sense, but if the building project is going to take hold, it would seem prudent for Dobbs to get a shot, you know?

FE to the C —

We're glad they are popping pads and sounds like the Eagles have some serious size. Should be a fun run.

JP —

Agreed. 100 million percent in fact. Dude should a zero to that lawsuit. At least.

Plus, not only was it 19 years — it was some kick tail 19 years. From 18-to-37... man, good times.

While the physics of that opinion are interesting, it feels more like picking nits. And if those allegations are true about the benefits in technique and power, then why are there not more of these things in use.

As for the safety factor, well, that's picking nits to the Nth degree.

Is Hank Aaron's 755 tainted by wearing a batting helmet compared to Ruth's total?

Great point about the union and the juxtaposition of what if the owners were asking the players to take these substances.

The media also has a hand in it. Good gracious Bob Costa almost made an O-face during the 1998 home run chase. You could look at those guys — Sosa and Bonds went from lead-off hitters to outside linebackers — and know something was up.

And everyone but you has forgotten AfterMASH. In fact, we're not sure you can prove it ever happened. (And from about season 8 on, we'll call that AfterMASH part I when Alan Alda decided he needed to be the moral compass of a country. Gross.)

Bartlett has a case to be sure.

We view the Hall of Fame as the best of the era — and Bonds was the best player of his era.

And while the definition of cheating is breaking the rules — and the back end of Bonds career (post-2002 when they adopted and enforced PED rules) is sketchy — here are two things to consider:

1) He never tested positive for PEDs and never admitted it. If baseball has proof (other than the obvious huge, Huge, HUGE increase in size, especially in the general head area) let's see.

2) Here's an ethics question on the matter: If 80 percent of a group is breaking a rule, is that still considered a valid rule of that job? Discuss.

OG —

Dude, Trapper John was fine — got his own spin-off even — and Radar was OK. Frank Burns was every bit as valuable as either one of those guys. And Henry Blake was close.

The first Newhart was in the same boat in regard to his friends and Suzanne P. and then his office folks and even his patients.

Stewwie —

Concur on the breakdown. Expect the Mocs to be competitive in the opener, and you're spot-on about the litmus test that is JSU.

And yes, the SoCon today is a cakewalk compared to what it was.

Thanks for everyone's help.

From friend of the show MT (who tried to post earlier but could not) —

Still covering the SEC but the SoCon media days are happening as we type, is the CTFP there representing?

UTC Coaches in order in SoCon history: Murray Arnold, Mack McCarthy and Wes Moore tied, and Joe Morrison. Honorable mentions to Colette Murray and Mark Guhne. Never forget the men's golf team under Coach Guhne reached number one in the polls, that is all schools, including Oklahoma St, Sanford, etc. The men's golf team is the only Mocs team ever in Div I to be ranked number one in the nation. Wrestling has been great, but there has been a list of coaches who took the job and won the conference, so no one coach stands out.

Your list of "mothers" was clearly slanted towards today's crop of mothers. It's a generational issue obviously, but any list of mothers that doesn't have June Clever on it must be brought into question.

Hey JoMo11, notice one of your McCallie brethren is rowing for the US of A in the World Under 23 Championships. What is your take on the state of crew and rowing with respect to the athletes we have representing us?

Sorry about the early mix-up. Comments are now open.

Having Uggla on a Triple-A deal is low risk, potential high reward.

If a change of locale was the biggest adjustment needed, you get a power bat for less than the league minimum. Granted that's a HUGE if but you get the idea.

Fan —

Dig your list, and Marge Simpson is a great, Great, GREAT call.

FE to the C —

Donna Reed was money and was aces in "It's a Wonderful Life."

You are correct. Will correct that. Got running fast this morning.

Which brings up the question there is a level of hate between LSU and Alabama that is running high: You look back to the teabag, then the frat boy crying and now some random barfly at "Losers" punching an NFL player because he did not properly respect the RT.

Just another Saturday night in the SEC we guess.

Jomo —

Kind of a dead time on campus. We'll see what we can stir up for the Mocs though.

You bring up a fair point about the slippery slope of paying players. Full cost of attendance is a catchy slogan and all, but for all the hand-wringing about paying players/amateurism, the next beef will be about the "full cost of attendance" stipends being below minimum wage.

And if you think the debate of having a union is present now, let the players think that they are being under-paid start to simmer.


We are not covering the SoCon media event. It's one day and we have as good, if not better access to all-things Mocs here than we do at the event. The same can't be said of the SEC stuff.

And good to see your name back on the ledger.
