Don't know much about the recruitiment, but after listening to Anderson's interview I can say for certain he's one of the most intelligent recruits I've ever heard. Very polished as a person. 

Rice is on par academically with the Dukes/Stanfords/etc of the college world. You have to be pretty sharp just to keep your head above water there. I'm a reasonably accomplished guy but I have to say, visiting there and Duke with my daughter looking at schools this summer/fall... the students at those places intimidated me, lol.

Much agreed. Best wishes to your daughter.  If you’re looking at schools like that for her, she has to be really talented.

She is but man, those places are so competitive (and expensive), I don't think that she'll quite get in. Thanks for the kind words. Now, back to Mr. Anderson.

Don't give up...I have two nephews who are Duke grads and they say the hardest part was actually getting into the school.   These guys are high achievers but good guys and both career military now and enjoyed the full college experience...academics...and never missed a basketball game either.    

If your daughter can get into one of these schools I'm betting she will do just fine and will find compatible class mates.

Rice-Aroni is some of the best stuff out there if you like rice!  My Corgi, "Sir Maxwell The Great" loves any dish made with Rice-Aroni. I have him trained to bark and growl any time their is an elephant on TV.  It is hilarious to watch this!

Got to get her to AU! We need good people like that walking across this campus. ;)

I've heard that some of the ladies at Mississippi College don't use certain hygiene products because they believe them to be sacrilege. 

That kind of particular?

She loved it on her official visit and has good scholarship help if she attended. She's trying to broaden her horizons a little which I'm encouraging (won't bother me to see her be less parochial than her Dad?). Sorry for the derailment, E?.

Chill w/ the pointless gifs fellas.

Calvin Anderson is arguably the staff's top target in this class. It would be huge if we could get him.

Mikey’s post about incessant gifs is a perfect example of the Streisand Effect. But I tend to agree with him.  They are overused but the ones above are funny!

Had to look up Streisand Effect. 

Tipper Gore has always been my go-to for that phenomenon. 

I wonder if Calvin Anderson likes gifs? Game of Thrones? 2 Live Crew? You KNOW he loves him some Barbara Streisand.

Sometimes a guy’s just gotta Streisand....
