    You sure?

    I thought that they took up fooseball instead after Fulmer stepped down as head coach.
    Be careful. She may be loving, quiet and unassuming but there are some things that even I don't say to her.

    Nah! She's quite good natured about it. She has to be after a lifetime of Vol disappointment, but she lives in hope … at least for the first few games every season.

That's a huge slap in the face, and although I don't watch college ball much, I sure hope Baylor beats Oklahoma this weekend, if for no other reason than to give the ranking powers a huge headache.
    Hope you didn’t watch last night. Baylor went up on OU 28-3 by halftime. Then they hit a wall losing 31-28.

    Ole Miss make LSU work for their win even if the final score doesn’t show it. Miss’s QB (Plumlee) ran for > 200 yards and 3 TDs and Ole Miss’s D picked Burrow off twice in a span of 10 minutes and he’d only been picked off 4X the entire season.

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    I have no dog in this fight as TTU has a new coach. I do look forward to basketball and baseball as we have two winning coaches in both sports. Matt Wells deserves a couple of seasons in football before any judgement. I think all the other winning by TTU will be infectuous.

    You guys realize that a university's #1 priority is to educate its students and not entertain the nation with sporting events. Unfortunately little is said about a university's academics and volumes is said about a university sporting team.

    OK my rant is over......

    No, I don't realize that, nor do I recognize that. Maybe some private university still feels that way. Any government university, like any other government bureaucracy, has a number one goal of increasing its budget to exert more power and influence.
