  1. Exactly but that was 15 years ago. Given the landscape, particularly in men’s basketball, you would think we would have figured out a way to modify a deal that seemingly puts AU at competitive disadvantage
  2. Didn’t want to look thru the thread so not sure if I’ve posted this (‘rona laziness) but this is worthwhile. ~$55 for a really, solid single barrel, age-statement bourbon? Not very common in this bourbon market. Recommend. Plus, a cool bottle....
  3. The continued interest from high level receivers and the seeming absence of interest from upper echelon OTs continues to baffle me
  4. With the current Jalen Green events...6+😔
  5. It was an inpatient facility during my medical school/residency. It was the primary facility for under-/uninsured although we saw plenty of those at the University Hospital as well.
  6. Having spent a good bit of time at CG back in the day.....I’m not sure that they would consider this a compliment.
  7. I guess that's how he didn't fit into their strong-ass culture.
  8. Ok, this is so inspired and we have @GwillMac6to thank: We get Doc Brown and his DeLorean, go back to ‘87, snag Tawny Kitaen out of this video for this terrible song, she comes back and is our secret recruiting weapon resulting in us signing Green, Brown, and Kuminga. She was too hot back then for any of them to say “No”. Caveat: it must be the 1987 Tawny Kitaen, not the current version. Current Tawny results in none of them signing and likely NCAA death penalty for men’s basketball
  9. I don’t think Jalen knows how badly I want him to come to AU. If he did he would be an AU lock.
  10. I was there and remember seeing him the same way but thinking “See, Emmitt, you should have come to AU after all”
  11. Bryant Smith on the ‘99 Porter team. Super underrated player that was a very important piece of that puzzle
  12. He's moving in in his heart. That's what counts😛
  13. I’ve been on 6 for three weeks or so
  14. Yeah, Tampa 2 to me is about as conservative as it gets from a DB perspective and people weren’t thrilled with those results 8-10 years ago
  15. The “A” and “B” are both very good although B significantly lower proof. I haven’t been able to put my hands on the “C” release. As stated, all things EC are pretty good
  16. I think he’s saying that the NCAA “issues” are the only reason our roster has the holes that it does, ie not recruiting much for ~ 2 years
  17. I want you to perfect social distancing brother. War Eagle!
  18. You are right. There is no way to make a comparison. Based on the current epidemiology it appears to be more transmissible with greater virulence. The flu always worries me (the bad years, I’ve seen a lot of really sick people even with a vaccine that likely confers at least partial immunity) but this concerns me a good bit more because of the factors I mentioned. I hope that I’m wrong, that all this uproar is all for naught, that the global and US economies recover quickly, and that you and all here remain healthy and happy. War Eagle for social distancing!
  19. Show of hands, how many healthcare professionals in this here thread? ✋🏼 The problem is nobody truly knows what this means. We don’t know the mortality/significant morbidity of this illness because we don’t know who has it and who does not. It is a novel virus for which, presumably, none of the human population has immunity. Until/unless we randomly test everyone we will not know the “n” (denominator) to understand what the real severity of it is. But, bottom line: a virus for which no one has immunity that is readily transmissible that has even a 1% mortality and results in severe illness in 10-20% of those affected.....that is a situation that is very scary if you work in healthcare. If you are young, healthy and can socially distance for awhile maybe it sounds like a bunch of BS. I personally am going to be very concerned for the foreseeable future.
  21. It would be JABA on steroids to somehow miss out on recruits because of a pandemic, lol
  22. Getting a little philosophical here but can’t help but post this from C.S.Lewis (mainly because I love about everything he ever wrote). We’re currently freaking out about an infectious disease but....
  23. She’s also beautiful, a great mom, a great cook, and an overall wonderful person. I have no idea why God blessed me with her, lol
