Old school sidekick, how about Ed Norton from The Honeymooners?

I do not put Bonds in the HOF. He cheated and broke MLB rules. His stats and records are acknowledged in the HOF, but you don't have to enshrine him as a member. While they did not test for PEDs during that period, they were illegal. Wonder if his head has shrunk back to closer its normal size these days....

How did we forget Tommy Bartlett yesterday in the pantheon of Mocs coaches? Tommy Bartlett was SoCon Coach of the Year in 1980, 81, 82, 83, 85, 88, and 89. Plus quoting an article from somebody named Steven Hargis: Tommy Bartlett was the coach of 1979-90 UTC tennis teams that won 13 Southern Conference championships and three consecutive NCAA Division II women's titles (1983-85), and he finished with 606 wins as a tennis coach.

Jim Morgan had many of his great years prior to UTC being in the SoCon.....

Stewwie, agree with Frank Reed getting an honorable mention. Although, his resume does have that end of season mess from a year ago...

Plus, upon reflection I put Wes Moore in second alone and drop Coach Mack to third. One could argue Wes belongs in first, but in today's world women's sports still do not have the importance that men's sports do. I had Mack in a tie previously due to the Sweet Sixteen run.

I am moving Coach Guhne into fifth place alone, not only have the Mocs won the SoCon quite often under him, he was the coach of Steven Fox who won the US National Amateur and gave the school lots of positive exposure.

YOu also gotta have Margaret Anderson on the list from Father Knows Best.

If Uggla comes out of AAA to make the Giants lineup I see that as a sign that the Giants are out of the hunt for a playoff spot, how could having Uggla, unless he rediscovers himself, seen as a positive right now?

Stewwie, how about reversing logic and let the best record of the "lottery teams" get first pic, second best gets second pick etc. Then teams will try to win every game they can to get the best possible draft pick, instead of tanking games to get the best player. The playoff teams would pick in current order, worse team first after the the bottom teams pick.

Why do all these people, ie the fans, go to the media days? Do they not have a life? They need to find one.

More on Marshall: " 'Up until last Friday, Nick has been a model student, teammate and citizen,' Malzahn said" Okay, that means that he, Gus, believes up until the time that Nick got arrested he had not been smoking marijuana at any time. For logically, if getting arrested makes him not a model citizen, then logically Gus thinks he got arrested the first time he ever smoked. Gus, want to buy a bridge?

Lets start with Nick Marshall, the "model citizen". He was dismissed from UGA for violating team rules. For an athlete that good to be kicked off a team takes either breaking a BIG rule or a bunch of little ones. Model citizen? Ah, okay...guess Gus has a different definition of model citizen. His suspension should be starting soon and will end at the start of summer practice.

With respect to Florida, if they lose to Ga Southern again, at least it will be to a team in the same division.

With respect to Slive and the SEC, they own the football, they are going to take it home if everybody doesn't like their own rules. All the other hundreds of other schools that aren't in the Big Five can take a dive off the nearest bridge for all they care.

With respect to golf, expecting Jomo11 to tell us that these guys are not athletes, I mean look at Phil Mickleson, Kevin Stadler, John Daly. Jomo has some of the top local high school DBs and WRs over at the driving range right now...look out Masters next April!

Just read that Red Klotz died over the weekend. One of the great coaches of all time, he was so good that he was not fired even though he lost approx 7,800 games in a row to the Harlem Globetrotters.

It is past time for the Braves to admit the mistake that is known as Uggla and designate him for assignment. The suspension gives them the opening. They have stayed in first or near first effectivley playing with a 24 man roster.

With all the around the clock coverage of the cable channels and the internet, are we approaching the end of time when conferences have media days? What will we learn this week from the SEC media days we don't already know? Does the costs justify the hard news that will come out of it? Or more succinctly, when will the media learn that they are just giving free advertisement to the SEC not getting hardly anything in return.

So Tiger Woods can do anything he wants? Then I surmise he will have to tell us come late this coming weekend that he didn't want to win The Open, but he had other objectives. Are there any Perkins restaurants in the British Isles?

Lebron went home. Hey Dorothy, did you know that Cleveland is in Kansas? I didn't see Toto in any of the photo ops.

With the German win in the World Cup I think I saw JoMo11 in the local Barnes and Noble getting a copy of a German English dictionary. I suspect he is looking around at local football fields and is putting together a team for the next World Cup.

Auf Weidersehen Yall!
