  1. It's kinda crazy. With the NIL thing coming up we've got one bunch of people who can't wait for their likeness to be used, and one bunch that's offended by their likeness being used. Maybe it the money.
  2. That's what I meant, politically cultivated. From the wayback machine, I remember Bobby Bowden saying that an entourage from FlaSt actually went to the trouble and spoke to the Seminole Tribal Council about the name/mascot. After which FlaSt proceeded with the Seminole name/mascot with the Tribal Councils blessing. Good on them for making the effort. If they have, then I would be pleased to learn that Atlanta Braves, Washington Redskins, and others followed suit. Still yet, I have to acknowledge that some Native American Tribal Councils have openly expressed their displeasure. Consistently, my thoughts about removing Confederate statues from public venues should be left up to the local population where those statues reside. Not up to the political inclination of others who don't live there, or even plan to visit.
  3. For many years, my thoughts about these kind of sports team names was simple. All I needed to go along was to actually hear or read where a Native American tribe or council had came out and openly expressed their offended feelings about the name/mascot of any sports team. Because anybody shouldn't have to endure being genuinely offended, no problem understanding that. I just wasn't convinced that actual Native Americans were the ones being offended. I thought is was just a bunch of crap a few big mouthed busy body's were making up because they didn't have anything else to do that day. And then that changed. Native Americans actually have came out and expressed their offended feelings, and I think they shouldn't be ignored. I mean, it's up to them. If they're genuinely offended, and appearantly they are, then yeah, something needs to change. At the same time, a tiny, almost microscopic portion of my mind tells me that maybe their offended feelings have been politically cultivated. But that's me thinking, not the Native Americans. Like I said, essentially it's up to them. They say it's offensive, that's good enough for me. Appearantly, good enough for Tom Hanks too.

  4. We'll now, hold on a minute. You got to be in a category these days. You got your white people, your black people, your Asians and Latinos. You got your gay people, your trans, your cisgendered and pedo's. And it doesn't really matter what category you're in, because all the rest of them hate you. Oh shit, I put white people first. I must be racist...

  6. Hell, I'm more ready for the season to get started than I've been in years. I'm anticipating a lot of good news to come out of fall camp.

  9. Shaping up to be a hum-dinger recruiting class. Coach Hype came in with a cohesive staff, and it's starting to look like he has the right guys. I underestimated that at first, but now maybe it's working out in a positive way

    Thanks oh Master of Blah. It's just been you and me on here for like a week. Our friends are a bunch of deadbeat pecker-knockers.
  12. I knew it was a done deal when I first heard about it. Seems like one day they bring it up, the next day it happens. Talks have been going on for a long time. It wouldn't surprise me if the decision had been made before the word got out. Oh yeah, it's not related, but it's kind of related. Here's something to waste a few minutes reading.. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/2011/1990-sec-expansion-southeastern-conference/

    02 Committ Brody Foley.

    Th'Vols seem to actually have some momentum going on the recruiting trail. Whoda thunk it. After a brief search I still can't find anything about Brodys 40 time or shuttle. But his offer list isn't bad, MichSt, Auburn, PennSt and Maryland are the standouts. 4 stars with another year of hi-school, it's probably hard for a TE to get a 5 star rating. Mostly WR's and RB's, guys with a lot of stats. Offer lists tell more about what the coaches evaluate, statistics impress the rating guys. Anyway, the guy does look like he could put on about 20 lbs. 6 foot 5 inch +250lb TE that can run and catch. Sounds like somebody else I watched play for th'Vols a few years ago. I'd line Brody up on the hash every chance I got.
