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?

MT —

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.

Jomo —

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.

C-Vol —

Excellent call.

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.
