The race coordinator called roll, and when they got to texas, there was this huge "yeehaw!" from the back of the room. They had every single member of their team in there, taking up space and generally being obnoxious while everyone else was trying to focus on instructions so they didn't run into a bridge or anything.

It was at that point that i decided texas had the biggest douchebags in all of collegedom. (maybe that's why i dislike muschamp so much?) "hook 'em horns" makes me want to punch somebody right in the nose.

And, another rowing story... It was uf/ga weekend, and we had a race in jacksonville. We're going along, mid-race, and here comes a motorboat cruising right through the middle of the course, right up through lanes and lanes of shells. Every seen a rowboat of eight people try to change course quickly? It doesn't happen. Fortunately, no one got hurt, but there were some close calls. The boat was flying a georgia bulldogs flag. Guy was drunk as a skunk.

...and then there was that time that fsu *did* run into a bridge. Right smack into that big concrete pylon.

Regattas were always more interesting during football season.

I did. I don't want to talk about how I lost it though.

Over 200 yards in penalites, 9 turnovers and several additional fumbles recovered by the fumblers. Perhaps the East can decline to send a representative to Atlanta this year.
Just watched it for the second time. It's like watching your own funeral.

edit: oh, and towards the end of the game, they did announce there were 27 personal fouls. I'm sure they got to 30 though.

Two of the top defenses in the country. What did you expect?

I thought, "I like A&M, but the SEC isn't my conference." --

I'm sure for fans of University of SEC in Gainesville, Georgia or even that good team in Alabama feel similarly. "What are they doing here?"

It just doesn't work. It doesn't feel right. A&M and Missouri belong in the Big12. A very good A&M (say doing as well as KSt this year) I could get excited about... if they were in the Big12. In the SEC, yeah I'll still cheer for them- but they feel like that cousin that has dropped out of yours and your families life.

That guy slamming the door was being an asshole, and he's sorry.

But of course it's going to take time. Look at a school like Penn State. Are you going to say they didn't take a few years to 'feel' like a big 10 school?

you're forgetting that the expansion wasn't about adding teams. It was about getting a conference championship game.

The end of the season is in sight, so it's time for my favorite topic of the year:

What coach is leaving which school to go where?

Charlie Strong to ?
Kirby Smart to ?
Dan Mullen to ?
The guy at Louisiana Tech?

GAR was really, really shitty to GHS when the joint boathouse was being built, and we GHS kids put just as much work into it. I was there plenty of weekends nailing stuff, putting on the roof, and my grandfather paid for the dock. Then GAR had the gall to put up a sign indicating that it was their domain.

GAR - sore subject.

Welcome back, NS! :)
