"a rare win"? UGA has 48 of them in the series to 40 for UF. So that is not relevant to those who prefer to selectively evaluate football rivalries, how about this: UG ahas a better record that TN against Florida in the Richt era (3-8), and with the majority of the UGA team's history in Athens, they are 1-1. None of which matters next fall, the total series record, or the way it is sliced and diced, all that matters is what that unique pairing of two teams does against one another.

I understand the media wanting to have a storyline that fires people up, but it should always include "the rest of the story".

What should have been a positive article was written with a negative slant. UGA defense will be at full strength for the first time all year. Just enough to wake up negative fools like "thomasbrown". Good to see Ogletree back from injury, he has worked hard.

The term "black leaders" seems to be questionable at this point. There needs to come a time where people of influence in black culture step up to problems and rop the hysteria of "racism". They are doing their constituency no favors by ignoring the gloomy statistics that continually come their way. Leadership, not cover-up is needed but that may actually mean looking at reality. Not achieving, not adapting, not taking responsibility is contributing to a downward spiral. Time for change, too many opportunities and investments have been wasted.

Agree that all should close simply because the food is inedible. Teenagers seem to like it though, mostly because you canget filled up cheaply. The "plasma beef" they serve should be condemned by the health department. Of course, the idiots on the Signal Mountain council will probably block any decent operator from replacing the Taco Bell. Anyone who would deny a Publix location from coming to Signal Mountain does not have the best interests of the residents as a priority.

Prosecution over-reached on this case, it was never a death penalty case. CMA was guilty of having a role in what was most likely an accidental/negligent death in which she played a role, then participated in a cover up. There was no way to prove premedication in a death where this is no cause of death, or irrefutable evidence.

The real problem with our judicial system is the role of the jury. It is difficult, if not impossible, to get 12 intelligent people seated on a jury. Juries these days are often the worst of us, lawyers don't want people who can think on the jury. Also you must remember, they draw jurists from the voting lists and look what we have allowed to happen to our society through the people we have elected.

Interesting list, but how can you possibly list #4 as "Piazza goes deep"? There was nothing, zero, patriotic about that home run (nice gesture though on the donation...many did more). That World Series will forever be known for President Bush going to NY and throwing out the first pitch. What a moving moment that demonstrated leadership and helped galvanize this nation. Have to be suspicious as to why you listed it that way. But that is your problem, not mine. A moment that will never be forgotten, I have to admit I had fogotten Piazza even played then, much less hit a home run.

I can see how you could feel that way averys, and there is a slight chance you may end up being right, but I feel the police are right to treat this in a low key manner based on the public information in this case. None of us readers know all the facts they have access to, but there is simply nothing to suggest foul play at this point. Strange behavior? Yes, but the given information points to her leaving the home of her own accord.

The Signal Mountain police have so little to do they bring 2-3 police cars to a routine traffic stop situation daily. If there was even a slight hint of an abduction you can bet they would be in front of the cameras non-stop. Maybe a 10% chance she is not home of her own will, but much more likely she has left the home for her own personal reasons due to domestic issues. She drove the children home and left them there voluntarily before leaving. That doesn't sound like a situation to cause police to treat this like a person that is in danger from someone else. Pursuing leads, putting out information; sounds like they are playing it right to me. Certainly the entire area is aware of the story and knows what she and the vehicle look like. Time will tell.

That just makes no sense to me as ABC owns ESPN and can control the conflict. Why put the two most interesting games of CFB's opening weekend in the exact same time slot and split the audience? Surely, a couple of hours difference in start times, or a late afternoon/evening differential would maximize viewing and please their sponsors. As an old marketing guy this violates all the rules. With as many bad matchups as is scheduled for that weekend, just looks like someone isn't thinking.

Chet, what a racist you are. It is you who need to take a look in the mirror. How dare you interpret my words in such a false way! If you cannot see beyond black and white, you are a major part of the problem. It matters not whether the officer, or the coward was white or black, not one bit. I would have wished death on any man or woman firing at the police, race has NOTHING to with it for logical people. And I never mentioned black or white in my post, not a word. Take your hatred out of the area. Work with society to improve the problems, stop dividing it. Racism, and racists, exist much more in the black community than in the white area, and has for decades now. Move forward, join in to solve problems rather than excusing and blaming others.

Mella yella, that is one sorry excuse. If there are bad police, deal with them to improve it. Don't let some fantasy expressed by extremists justify not obeying authority. Are there cops who have shamed their profession? Certainly, but you deal with that group, not paint every offical as dirty. The option is anarchy, and the lawlessness we are seeing today is the result of naive fools like you. The consequences are evident, the biggest problem with crime is where the most anti-police attitudes exist. Let the Leftists convince people otherwise and you will see more high crime areas.

There are just way too many police officers dying in the line of duty the past few years, and it is trending up. We need to allow police a more free hand to deal with those who resist arrest, or fail to obery when commended to stop/surrender. The pendulum has swung too far toward the punks/thugs' side. If they resist, drop them. There are courts where they can plead their case if they are innocent. Time to let the police bring order to this society.

I hope the shooter in this case dies a painful death in prison, but quickly, we shouldn't waste too many tax dollars on him while he lives off our tab.
