    In Orwellian fashion Biden brags about 100's of Americans getting fired...

    Right... and a government which has robbed its citizens of liberties associated with a free society. A government that has maintained its rule by breaking its dissidents of their free will, and turned their citizens against each other.

    In Orwellian fashion Biden brags about 100's of Americans getting fired...

    There were posters who were replying to my messages, but then not answering the very easy question at the end of my post. ... and how much effort does it take to type "Rats" ? They were going to more trouble to avoid it.

    In Orwellian fashion Biden brags about 100's of Americans getting fired...

    Of course, I know that. How did I miss that point? That doesn't make any sense. I very clearly speak of Winston Smith as the protagonist and O'Brien / Big Brother / the Ministries of Truth, Love, Peace and Plenty as the antagonists.

    In Orwellian fashion Biden brags about 100's of Americans getting fired...

    Correct. I finally went ahead and gave the answer in post #73. Because I wanted it to be an easy question for anyone who has read the book, but it's not a detail that would likely be mentioned in either a critical analysis of "1984", or in an essay. My point was that I think "Orwellian" is...

    Fondest Bama Vol game you attended

    I was there too. That made 10 wins out of 12 games for Tennessee in the series. I would have savored it more, if I had known it was going to the last in my lifetime.

    Hearing LSU is going to Hire Kiffin

    They would tolerate his behavior if he was a little better than 9-8 since winning the 2019 National Championship, but the LSU administration clearly hates the guy on a personal level. Troubling Story Emerges From Coach O's LSU Tenure I'm not sure if that's been posted yet or not. Admittedly...

    Hearing LSU is going to Hire Kiffin

    I don't know, man. You might want to seek professional help about these voices in your head. This might not be a good thing.

    RIP Betty Lynn (Thelma Lou) Andy Griffith Show

    The fun girls, Daphne and Skippy. The one with the husky voice who always greeted Andy with "Hello, Doll," was Daphne, played by Jean Carson. She was also one of the escaped prisoners in "Convicts at Large", who held Barney and Floyd captive in a cabin. She was the one who wanted to fight...

    RIP Betty Lynn (Thelma Lou) Andy Griffith Show

    It was her choice to leave the show. She didn't think she and Andy Griffith had any chemistry with each other, and she was right. The show was revamped after the first season, with Andy made into the "straight man" and Barney the quirky jokester. Andy dropped the long southern drawl, and...

    Anybody get a number of how many flops there was last night?

    It's a well-coordinated strategy, that he picked up from Saban. They are exploiting loopholes which need to be closed.

    Anybody get a number of how many flops there was last night?

    Nothing justifies throwing debris on the field... but this strategy of faking injuries to slow the offensive pace down, needs to be addressed by a rules committee. I've never seen it done quite so obviously before.

    QB - Tommy Devito (Syracuse Transfer)

    You never see him anymore. Joe was all over the place in the early to mid 90's... Lethal Weapon sequels, Home Alone movies, Goodfellas, My Cousin Vinny, JFK and Casino... and then gone.

    Orgeron gone at season’s end

    John Currie talked to him briefly in 2017, after the Greg Schiano fiasco went down. You don't remember Jimmy Hyams making a fool of himself? "Source : Tennessee is closing in a deal with Purdue coach Jeff Brohm. UT interviewed Chad Morris of SMU last night but apparently UT favors Brohm."...

    QB - Tommy Devito (Syracuse Transfer)

    I must use this thread to flex my vast knowledge of useless movie trivia... The character that Joe Pesci won an Academy Award for playing in Goodfellas, was also named Tommy DeVito. He was based on a real gangster named Tommy DiSimone.

    Orgeron gone at season’s end

    Tennessee took a step back after winning the 1998 National Championship. I think that had a lot to do with losing Cutcliffe. However, this post stretches the truth, in order to make the immediate aftermath of '98 sound worse than it really was for Tennessee. Fulmer's first losing season was...

    Orgeron gone at season’s end

    The trajectories are the same. Period.

    500 yards and 42 points...

    You're being a little hard on your DC ... there were no 20 yard shoe tosses this time. That's a sign of maturation.

    Orgeron gone at season’s end

    I didn't say they were, but the trajectories of their respective programs at the time they were fired is similar. They both lost 5 games the year after a 15-0 National Championship. LSU will probably finish 6-6. That's not Curly Hallman bad... but it is Gerry DiNardo bad. They have much...

    Orgeron gone at season’s end

    Okay, some people will argue anything. Last 4 seasons of both tenures (Chizik only coached 4 at Auburn, but I'm talking about the trajectory of their programs at the time they were fired, not the full tenure.) Gene Chizik - Auburn 2009 : 8-5 2010 : 15-0 2011 : 8-5 2012 : 3-9 Ed Orgeron -...
