why not Clown College?
it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels.
But why is the rum gone?
I really miss having Nelsons, Wrights and Spikes making the other team want to avoid pain more than they wanted to try to win. We just have "speed" guys now. No hitters.
The whole goal is to turn 'Merican football into occasional contact soccer. Can't have violence displayed so blatantly on a field, you know. Can't wait until some of these folks read the BUDS or Ranger syllabus. I am sure the 10 mile night swim will become a 100 yard dog paddle with safety observers every 5 meters.
Jenkins and Haden were given a tall order to contain Julio in the 2008 SECCG, and did as well as they could. But he was mostly having his way when they went his direction(5 rec, 124 yards through 3 quarters). But if you go back to the waning moments of Q3, there’s a play in the end zone where instead of going for the INT, Major just destroys him. They still got a FG out of it, but by my recollection, Jones never caught another pass in the game. And the uga WRs in 2005 and 2006(with RFN) were just embarrassing to watch on several plays over the middle. I’ve never seen players more afraid. But I guess when your vet WR teammate has his face split open, you tend to be a little concerned. Obviously rule changes have hampered things, but the impact of a hitter roaming the secondary is probably one of the most overlooked components to a defense.
Kevin Carter, Ellis Johnson, Ben Hanks, Dexter Daniels and RFN are probably my favorite all time defensive players. And to bring this thread back around, guys like Mike Harris and Dwayne Thomas should get some recognition. Harris’ stop on a sure TD helped force that FG in ‘97.
Yeah, you can't just take a dude's head off now, can't hit his head, lead with your head, and usually can't launch, but I've still seen some huge hits by safeties. Even more by linebackers. Just not ours.
Davis was admirably kicked from several games. And who knows the damage Stiner or Taylor could’ve done if they’d ever been with 15 feet of an offensive player not already tied up. But yes, Lawrence, Nelson and Major would be lucky to combine for 4 full years of eligibility today.
Many players were seen wearing eye protection after a certain game Spikes played in. "Now Brandon, you just leave that guy's eyes alone!"
I e we had 7 Brandon Spikes today, theyd all start, one at NT.
I usually think these historic racial issues are blown out of context in the modern world, but Doak Campbell was a fkkn animal. He was basically cut from the same white sheet that Lester Maddox and George Wallace were. Here's a description of this fkkn pig from Wikipedia: Campbell has been described as strongly opposed to the admission of African-American students to Florida State. According to James Schnur, "Campbell exacted deference from the campus community, suppressed the liberal editorial policy of the semi-weekly Florida Flambeau newspaper, and refused to tolerate any breach of racial segregation. He forced the campus chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) to cancel a regional conference at FSU when he learned that black faculty members from the neighboring Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) planned to attend." At the same time, Tallahassee was racially uneasy because, following the successful Montgomery bus boycott of 1956 and the Supreme Court case Browder v. Gayle, local activists, including some students, boycotted Tallahassee buses seeking to integrate them as well. The Florida Board of Control, which ran the state's universities, warned students not to get involved in "the Tallahassee integration dispute". In an episode that was reported on nationally, Campbell had no hesitation in expelling a graduate student who spoke "urging support of a Negro candidate for the Tallahassee City Commission against the white incumbent", and who invited three African students (not African-American) to an FSU party. He required the student newspaper, the Florida Flambeau, to devote less space to integration. He went on record denying that he had said that there would eventually be Negro students at FSU. He expressed regret that Tallahassee Negroes seeking to end segregation were not meeting in juke joints, because it would have been easy to ban FSU students from them. But they met in churches, leaving Campbell "in a quandary over how to ban student support of integration".
I have to agree that Campbell was a horrible person and yet as of today his name is still plastered across the stadium. So we have three separate situations with variable levels of racism associated with completely different outcomes. 1. FSU has a stadium named after a blatant racist and his name is still in place with little evidence to suggest that anything will change. 2. Texas has an official school song (Eyes of Texas) with an undeniable racist history and after much debate remains the official school song with no substantive changes 3. Florida has a cheer (gatorbait) with zero real evidence of any racist past or connotations and yet UF preemptively eliminated the tradition from the program. It’s so nice to see that UF continues to make every move possible to put the program in a bad light and ensure that prominence and major sports championships never return. In these times of rapid change, it’s so comforting to know that some things never change.
What a winner. Did the flaming spear at midfield evolve from the earlier tradition of burning a cross there instead?
So when a scoundrels drinks it, it's like the Incredible Hulk getting hit with even more gamma rays, huh? So much mystery dissolves in seconds....
George Wallace was a good man. Don't taint his legacy with that of Doak
