  1. Nope. I'd argue that Bird meant exactly what he typed: pedantic -- of or like a pedant. ex: "many of his essays are long, dense, and too pedantic to hold great appeal." pedant -- a person who is excessively concerned with minor details & rules, or with displaying academic learning. ex: "pedants insist that the 21st century started with 2001."
  2. Well, Ossoff has a final say on the problem of "money in politics" ... and, calls for Campaign Finance Reform(!) You really can't make this stuff up.
  3. Well said. I'd only add that our biases are influenced most by who we saw. I was there during the Cribbs/Brooks era so I naturally compare all other backs to those two. My last quarter at AU was Fall 1979 -- the year AU was on probation and prohibited from being on TV. What a shame too because unless you went to the games, you couldn't ever watch those two in action. In only 11 games (no bowl game due to probation,) both Brooks & Cribbs each rushed for over 1,000 yds. One or both would break off a long run (50+ yds) at least once every game. And I mean every game. Brooks earned his nickname "Bye-Bye" because if he got to corner and turned it up-field, he was gone. Down by 7 in the Iron Bowl that year after uat scored a TD with about 25 seconds left, Brooks took the KO and nearly ran it all the way back, getting tripped up a shoestring tackle at about the uat 20. Even Bear Bryant said afterwards, "I nearly had heart failure every time he touched the ball." Brooks WAS electric.
  4. Well, Ivey is an AU grad -- there's that. Bentley was your typical turd.
  5. Interesting history of the filibuster
  6. For 6 months prior to the election voters knew who the principals were going to be, and if they weren't totally dismayed at the prospects of having to choose between two unlikable candidates then they convinced themselves as to who was the lessor of two evils. Divine intervention aside, I'm sure there's a rational reason why HRC lost a totally winnable race. I think the explanation has more to do with political science than with "misogyny." Trump's victory was pretty much unexpected. Only two polls correctly predicted his win: Investor's Business Daily TIPP and the LA Times/USC Daybreak tracking poll. I also believe that the ship of state rarely moves in a straight line -- it will lurch in one direction, then correct itself by lurching in the other. I'm hopeful this recent election means the end of dynasty politics. However, when I hear of people touting Michelle, Chelsea or even Ivanka as possible candidates for whichever office, I'm not willing to bet on that(!)
  7. That's the only reason I watch anything on ESPN. Discussion-type shows, pre-game and post-game shows bore me to tears and I most definitely can think of better things to do.
  8. It's like no one's ever heard of the term, "paparazzi." To be sure, they tend to follow well-known actors & athletes but prominent politicians fall in the celebrity category too. Smdh.
  9. Dr. Walter Williams has written about this and has been saying this for many years: Free advice (obviously ignored by the majority)
  10. Always liked when Ron Franklin was doing the play-by-play. And then Carnell going 80 yards untouched on the 1st play -- that was a great game.
  11. To be fair: being arrested as a prime suspect is not the same as guilty of the crime. If true ... not going to hold my breath waiting for the media to denounce this journalist as one of them, though.
  12. Candidate Obama President Obama "Less access than under the Bush administration" -- CNN's Briana Keilar
  13. Politically motivated. Dude donated $5k to HRC campaign & Democrat party in August 2016. WaPo "forgot" to include that little nugget in their story: Principled Stances & stuff ... ...
  14. I commend her on her honesty even though I can't agree with her preposterous conclusion.
  15. A Big-12 team just schooled AU in the Sugar Bowl in how to run an offense. 524 yds total offense, remember? If by 'tuneup'' you mean being able to throw the ball short, medium & long to our talented WRs whenever & wherever we choose rather than when the defense forces us to throw it, then yeah, I'm right with ya.
