Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum / Re: Home Stretch

Well, that sucked in ways a bit different than I expected.  I expected to lose in rather undramatic fashion with their entire offense running through Ziegler.

Instead our defense was tenacious.  Smothering, even.  Ziegler was uncomfortable from the get and they were clearly discombobulated.  Jaylin made an appearance, Aden was decisive at the point.  There is fucking HOPE for a win tonight, hold me!

Except they had another mutant white kid who fucking killed us with approximately 934 points.  Between that and the fucking refs having a collective iq of 12... We weren't winning that game.

I thought I was resigned, but they gave me enough hope to have me loudly questioning the parentage of Rick Barnes, the refs and the fucking broadcast booth.

That team felt something tonight and grew a bit.  This one will pay dividends.

I'll be honest here K.  I really don't know shit about IVF other than my friend and his wife had to use it, had to pay out of pocket and did so without a guarantee that it would even work.  I promise you he sides with you on all things politics but he was pretty damned dramatic with how pissed he would be right now if he was one of the families being directly affected by the decision. 

No matter how you slice it, its a fucking awful decision.


Only when you take it to extremes the illiterate legislature never intended.  That’s the problem. 

Our elected officials are morons. They didn’t have enough sense to understand how the howling “let’s murder babies” vultures would interpret the intent in their headlong rush to sanction murder, and use it to wave the “my body” banner. 

It needs to be better written.  All of our legislators are dumbasses.  That’s the problem.  Because they are dumbasses they’ve taken something that should be the right thing and allowed it to become something else for the lunatic left to rend their garments over.

March Madness challenge is back with no wonderful prizes.

Click the linky and make me giggle

I still have yet to receive any of my battle for the crown prizes. I assume that died with GF. But I don’t have any confidence in the management of this place so I am not putting forth  the effort.

Just hoping/praying/crossing fingers that we let the best guy play.  Truly don't care who it is.  If that truly is Thorne, then I agree with you that we should have gone to the port hole.
You sure seem to like to talk about going to the port hole, a lot.

I see what your saying, and in this transfer port hole world, there's really no reason for it.  This isn't the olden days in which we have to hope the next guy up is ready.  You can scour the market for a decent deal.  Just seems that Hugh is more focused on building a culture of loyalty and togetherness, being careful of his messaging to potential HS commitments at certain positions through his actions.  What's the point of committing to a school as a QB if they have a history of sourcing one annually for their "experience". 

I don't think Thorne has any draft stock, and his experience hasn't translated for shit.

I'm still going to stick to my theory that Freeze wasn't nearly involved in the minutiae as we would like to believe.  I think he let his offensive coaches make the decisions on personnel, scheming and play calling. It may have been Montgomery's call to play Thorne all along. I can see Freeze taking the reigns again this season.

Broun Hall / Re: Richard Lewis

Comedian and actor dead at 76.  Most recently starred alongside Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm.  I remember him most from his unique stand up, and one of my favorite roles, Prince John in Robin Hood, Men In Tights. Heart attack got him.
I think he got a little less political than some of his colleagues and I appreciate an entertainer more, who doesn’t tell me how to vote.

His role in tights was good but he was exceptional in Curb Your Enthusiasm. A funny guy.

My biggest concern is what I said above.  We’re going into the 2024 season with a guy who has gotten progressively worse each and every year, and 3 total unknowns. And honestly, looking good in mop up duty, in what’s akin to a Spring game at that that point, doesn’t do much for me.  Hell, I saw Neil Caudle go 19-21 in a Spring game and I thought he was the second coming of Roger Brett Staubach Brady Peyton Mahomes. He did hold for the MNC winning kick, though.

Understand, I’m not pulling against any of them.  Hank is 6’4”, had sick H.S. stats, looked good in mop up duty, and he’s a ginger.  Gotta’ pull for the guy.  I hope he steps up and blows everybody away, and the national media winds up asking where the hell this guy came from? But, he’s still a total unknown entity as far as playing at this level.  It just chafes my inner thighs that it seems everyone around us is going into the season with proven studs, and we have a Thorne, and a handful of hopefuls.

Sad news.  I broke up with my girlfriend, Lorraine. I've started seeing a new girl, Claire Lee.  The good news is, I can see Claire Lee now, Lorraine is gone.

Hank was a 70%+ passer in 7A HS ball. Beat Alabama’s best 7A team (Thompson) as a senior. He was the only competent looking QB in that bowl game, regardless of the defensive unit he was playing against. He saw the open man and didn’t get greedy. 7-9 for 132 yds I think.


Just have this terrible feeling that Hugh is going to keep trying to push Thorne, and we are going to pull our hair out with frustration because of it. At least with Hank, more patience would be extended at this point. Thorne is old enough to be Hank’s dad and still hasn’t figured the shit out.

I was a Thorne fan until I saw him play for Auburn.
