  1. Chris got through twice for a total of 3 tickets. We still need to get through five more times to have tickets for all who have requested them. Hopefully, we'll have better luck when they go back on sale.

  2. Rex had 4 INTs and 2 fumbles lost on MNF vs. ARI. :( However the Bears got the most ridiculous come-from-behind win on two DEF TDs and a Punt Return. Wow!!!

  3. From CFN:

    The final stop on the week seven survey of the college football landscape concerns this business of conference superiority. The verdict? No conference is superior to another, including the SEC.

    The Southeastern Conference has it all over the other conferences in terms of passion, noise, intensity, game atmosphere, and the other qualities that make college football sing. But for yet another season, it's impossible to give the SEC a clear nod in football quality over other leagues because the offenses just plain stink. Just ask yourself: who's the best quarterback in the SEC? Pick your person: it could be Chris Leak. It could be Erik Ainge. By the end of the year, it might be Syvelle Newton, though not likely. All three of those signal callers have their fair share of talents, but none of them could be called "great" or "elite" in any meaningful sense of those weighty terms. Ainge has desperately needed David Cutcliffe to find himself, and even then, No. 10 for the Big Orange couldn't make the money throws in the final stages of a one-point loss against Florida. Speaking of Florida, the Gators butter their bread with defense; Chris Leak commits at least one really bad turnover in every major game Florida plays. Newton could become something special under Steve Spurrier, but that's only if he can consistently display more of the form he revealed against Auburn a few weeks ago. Are SEC defenses particularly good? On balance, yes. But they aren't getting tested by elite quarterbacks these days. What in the name of Danny Wuerffel and Peyton Manning is going on in the South? They don't make big-time signal callers in Dixie anymore, and such a reality proves that the league was a lot better when Mr. Spurrier was still in Gainesville. The disappearance of elite quarterbacks in the SEC affirms how much the conference has regressed to Bear Bryant ball since

  4. Again, I want to thank all of you for your nice comments regarding the passing of my dog Stanley. I have taken the post and pic down, because I feel that it has served its purpose and I hate scrolling past it as if it were unimportant.

    Anyway, thanks again you all!!!

  6. VH1 Hip Hop Honorees

    ODD FACT:
    The Beastie Boys famously coined the term "mullet" with their 1994 song "Mullet Head." The Oxfor English Dictionary states that the term was "apparantly coined, and certainly popularized, by U.S. hip-hop group the Beastie Boys".

    Anywone have an OED?

  7. Great article. I like how multiple media outlets postioned on diff. fronts of the U.S. say that the SEC is tops bar none.

    Great quote by that guy in the article about his scenario being just as good as any other "blowhard."

    So true.

    Oh, sacred computers, let us live!!!

  12. Freddy T. considering retiring from the NFL?

    ___

    Talk of Tiki Barber's decision to retire after the season has made Fred Taylor think about his future as well. "I love what Tiki is doing," Taylor told the Florida Times Union. "He's getting out on top. He's a really intelligent guy and he's got lots of other avenues to pursue once he's done playing." Taylor says he's thinking along the same retirement lines as Barber, but he still has nearly two years left on an incentive-laden contract

    Our View
    Taylor could be in his final season as the feature back in Jacksonville even if he doesn't retire. Fragile Fred has been overshadowed by youngster Maurice Jones-Drew in the backfield, and must feel somewhat frustrated. Time will tell if Taylor is really considering retirement, but his future is growing even cloudier.
