ELON'S NEW FIGHT SONG COULD BECOME THE O'JAYS "BACKSTABBER"
To compare the SoCon now to what it use to be I can't fathom when UT, Bama, and Ga left it was to form the SEC, then Virginia, Maryland, etc left to for the ACC big difference between then and now just sayin...huge huge difference...JG great response yesterday and today...Let Blackburn raise the money then get the heck out...what used to be the FCS equivalent of the SEC has been buried...hang out in the conference formerly known as the SoCon three to five years, then BOLT...the one thing we have to remember, is with the BCS instituting a "playoff" then entire landscape of college football WILL change...those currently in FBS will be filling more of the lesser bowl slots (Sun Belt currently has two guaranteed spots) the lower level FCS teams will end up dropping to non scholarship football and the capable ones will move up to have a shot at bowl games...also we must remember the Big 10 has already instituted the non FCS game policy, it will not be long before the SEC does also...those $450K games will be gone, so step up and get the $MILLION guarantee instead from Bama, FSU, etc...will take 3-5 years but I am ok with that
2014 I do believe laughing...but I keep waiting for someone other than myself to just come out and speak the truth...adding VMI, ETSU, and Mercer do NOTHING to help the conference...you have one HORRIBLE athletic program already (VMI) with no chance of being competitive in the major sports...Mercer and ETSU are just STARTING football, can you say SMU with them? It will take a decade for either to be a factor, and ETSU is not the old ETSU in basketball which the casual Chattanooga fan just can't comprehend...Mercer is good but not great in basketball,so the SoCon takes a huge gut shot and will NEVER recover...I just hate being the lone voice saying the SoCon is DONE REPEAT DONE
Thanks to that former QB and now pitchman...hands down choice is
(drum roll please) THEISMAN'S SUPER BEAT PROSTATE
No mention this am of another gut shot taken by the SoCon? I stand by my opinion that adding ETSU and Mercer which are just starting football, and a very pathetic VMI, has Kavorkianed the conference. No matter how its wrapped up, the SoCon is done let us hope the Mocs don't have to stay in but three or so yesrs
Well played on the "cowbell" and "baby ruth"...there is hope to turn you into a cantankerous old fart yet
JG I can't believe two days in a row I have to somewhat agree with you...the UNDERPERFORMERS list is really good...although I would have to put Dale Jr at the top of the heap over Chokio...Junior has never lived up to the hype...of course part of that is applicable to the Wallflowers...how often do the offspring truly match what the parent accomplished...Dylan and Dale? The only one that comes to mind is Hank Jr has far exceeded what his father did and Hank Sr even with such a short career is still regarded by most as the KING of country music...Eddie Murphy is quite frankly a joke! He career died when he did "The Nutty Professor", you do not and I REPEAT do not remake the classic Jerry Lewis movie...I do know how the second fiddles feel, I run second banana in my field in many instances, however I still have the passion to do the best I can, maybe thats why my phone rings?
MocTastic we must forgive JG his age how was he to know Sly was in several films prior to Rocky..Lords of Flatbush also starred a pre Fonz Henry Winkler...we must give him credit however for his mention of what is considered the greatest motion picture of all time, Citizen Kane...lets throw the debut bit to music lest we forget Guns and Roses "Appetite for Destruction"
JMC..I was waiting on JG to comment regarding the death penalty that has been dealt to the SoCon...Does not matter who is brought in now, the loss of Davidson permanently places the conference on the bottom of the RPI..I did listen to the grand old clorox himself yesterday and it did appear to be a shock to him...I honestly believe he is semi-concerned about CHATTANOOGA to some extent, but his orange glasses fog real vision...He was doing his best to make the city believe Vonn Bell was going to Tenn, when I told him he would NOT happen...FYI, the Reader's Digest survey of the most trusted people in America was just released and what a sad commentary on this nation when Peyton Poo Poo is ranked higher than Billy Graham
The Foster hire was indeed a huge home run...now perhaps all these clorox orange loons, that sheepishly support the Mocs will shut up...all you could hear from the most vocal of them was hire someone with ties to Pat, hire someone with ties to Pat...who would your rather have some wannabe(adams or little summitt) or a proven WINNER...GREAT JOB DAVID BLACKBURN!
The SoCon is on LIFE SUPPORT and needs to be put out of its misery...the exit of Davidson was a shot to the head...for the mid majors has strong as football can be...basketball is the life blood for tv money, etc...and with Davidson now gone the conference will be lucky to to survive...the RPI will now be at the bottom of the list...VMI, ETSU, and Mercer can't possibly replace what has been lost...I suspect Blackburn is already exploring all options, but if Chattanooga can't be the big dog then get out...Immarino is to quote Col Nathan Jessup is "messing with the wrong marine"...the conference can't survive by adding two football teams that do not truly exist yet, but the death blow from adding the basketball programs is even more sad
LOL very typical little orange...is there any truth to the rumors that both Tennessee and the Dallas Cowboys have signed tv deals with the History Channel???
Bo has no national championships...both Frazier and Tebow have two...Herschel has one...both CARRIED thier teams
