Doesn't this pattern of conduct fit in well with the Marion County coaches who trashed their own field house? These precious little redneck thugs are merely imitating their role models and their parents are enablers.

Master Jay:

I have listened to your co-hosted radio show a few times. Not because it isn't good (it is) but because I have "other priorities" as one unlikeable politican once put it. The Disney Channel trumps talk radio after school ends for the day. You have small ones so you know what I mean.

Any way, here's a free marketing suggestion and you know what those are worth.

Press Row-The Intelligent Alternative in a Radio Sports Show.

It easily passes the truth in advertising test.

You are welcome and use it as you see fit.

The Packers not selling out a playoff game just because it's forecast to be +5 degrees at kickoff? The wussification continues.

Remember the 1967 Ice Bowl? Temperature at kickoff was reported to be -15 with a wind chill dropping it to around -48 and still the stadium was packed. It was so cold that the officials' whistles froze to their lips. Yet the Cheeseheads still filled the stadium.

I understand the comfort of my big screen TV and close bathrooms-old men NEVER pass up a chance to go to the bathroom-but you are correct when you say Green Bay's inability to sell out its stadium for a playoff game does not bode well for the future of seeing games up close and personal. Nothing can replace being there.

Remember the Titans is the better football film. Washington and Mcconaughey are both top notch and well cast but, top to bottom, the better cast for the other characters was in RTT.

If you don't like egg nog then you are not "mixing" it correctly. This being a family friendly column, I'll stop there but try to remember "the recipe" the Baldwin sisters in the Waltons TV show used to make. "The recipe" makes egg nog palatable.

"You can't not miss in either direction because if you buy a size too big, she'll think you think she's too heavy and if you buy a size too small she'll think you think she's too heavy. She could be a Kenya distance runner with 0.6 percent body fat and that does not change the previous sentence."

In the entire world history of the printed word, truer words have never been written and published! Congratulations, sir, well played indeed.

God bless Radley Balko for the work he is doing to raise awareness of the deadly errors committed because of the increasing militarization in today's American police forces. Read it and his online column, The Agitator, for more information and documentation about this disturbing trend in American policing. Kudos to Dr. Petarra for applying some of Balko's work to Chattanooga.

fechancellor, I prefer the lice to Kiffin. They have a better developed sense of morality. Throwing his brother-in-law under the bus at least twice must make for some really awkward family get togethers.

You need to include Sal on the Johnny Vols Fan All-Time Rushmore of Disdain. Surely he earned his place of dishonor because he managed to produce a defense that was unable to stop the Little Sister of the Poor grade school, much less an SEC foe.

The Grinch called. He's pissed at being portrayed as someone like Mark West.

I would think that being able to coach your son in a college setting would help keep Russ here for the next few years but that is a personal opinion based on my family and everything else I see in the media about their on and off field relationship.

I don't want to project my feelings about family and sports on to the Hussmans but how many of us would have eagerly embraced the chance to coach our sons at the collegiate level? Jacob could always transfer and sit out a year if his dad took a job at the next level but I just don't see that happening.
