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.
Justin Connolly said he believed the app would be available regardless of the internet provider. But he was quick to point out that until the contracts are signed anything can happen.
Thanks for the question.
Yes on both.
And Don't mess with the Jesus.
What about Ray, the kid that wouldn't block for his black teammates in Remember the Titans?
And the dude in Kickboxer against Jean Claude VanDamme who killed like three people? What was his name Chef Lin? Chung Pow? Something like that.
That should be Shute from Vision Quest. Stupid fingers.
Great sports villains.
OG — outstanding call on the warden.
Heck with the warden, FE's G.D. Spradlin, Bud Kilmer in Varsity Blues and Ed O'Neill in Little Giants, we could have our football coaches division.
FE, North Dallas Forty may be the single most underrated sports movie ever. Great stuff.
In addition to some of the ones we've seen here, we have to Roy Turner, the little league coach who smacks his own kid in "Bad News Bears," and Shoop from Vision Quest.
Very well played with Smokey and the Bandit III. Egad — the Snowman dressing up as the Bandit... that may be why Brick killed a guy. And Jaws III in 3-D was pretty bad too.
The Next Karate Kid was the one with the girl, right? That was No. 4 if memory serves.
We can see GF III for some of the reasons you mentioned, and we were leaning that way until OG dropped some knowledge. There is no way it's in the bottom four, no matter much of a drop off it has from the first two. (Although the three-quels that fail compared to the first two would GF III and Return of the Jedi in the mix for sure.)
And we can all agree that Jomo is aces (and hit print... and send to our attorney).
Done and done.
Colts 19 is a pretty good one sir.
We thought about the 34s but not so much.
Gretzky's 99 is a good call too.
In some ways U.S tennis faces a similar problem to U.S. soccer. It's a bigger deal elsewhere on the youth sports scene, especially for the girls.
And yes, if Bosh is expecting a raise, he can expect to relocate.
Could the best WR/DBs in the NFL turn into star curling players, too, under Jomo's tutelage?
Now that's a big story. Cannonball.
You could do the Shaq: "A little shake. A little tingle. A little shake. A little tingle."
Those are good.
OG — Those also are good, although we'll have to agree to disagree on Namath.
Here's a starting point on our most iconic numbers (and jersey and color and stature and being the only one that has it helps in all facets):
Petty's 43 — paint scheme and the rest make it awesome
Jim Brown's 32
Jordan's 23 with the Bulls
We'd lean toward the 3, but who has the more famous 3 — Dale or Ruth?
We're still looking for one. Thoughts?
Solid list of cartoon characters. We'd go Homer for sure. Hard to keep Bugs and Mickey off there. Love Fred. Scooby too. Tough Rushmore.
As for Toms, while we love the Tom (of Jerry fame) and Poston, we'll start with Tom Hanks, Tom Brady, Tom Selleck's mustache and one more.
Dude has had some gigs for sure.
Foghorn is money. And we love Droopy Dog too.
And we had to get that kickball story out there before we were scooped by Obscure Sports Quarterly or it was picked up by The Ocho.
