No shock here,,,

5. Good Ol' Rocky Slop (Whew!) (9-2)
After the attack on Pearl Harbor, stunt pilot-turned-Air Force general Jimmy Doolittle trained his legendary Raiders for their bombing attack on Tokyo just outside of Columbia, South Carolina, not far from the Williams-Brice Stadium, home of the South Carolina Gamecocks. The fleet of B-25s would bomb the same piece of earth over and over and over and over again, refuel, and then bomb it again and again and again and again, day after day after day. On Saturday night in Columbia, with USC up 63-38, the ghost of Doolittle was heard saying, "Damn, Cocks, that's enough."

He isn’t wrong. That was a pathetic effort

...while just a few miles from the University of Tennessee, scientists were busy designing and working on the atom bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Moral: it's great to win a battle, but better to win the war. We'll see the yardbirds again next year.

Har har, Rocky Slop, what genius. How witty and special. He must get all the ladies.

There really is something special about Tennessee graduates crapping on Tennessee to earn their livelihoods. Every school has their John Adams, sure, but Tennessee breeds a special contempt for its own like no other school.

I really appreciate a great allegorical theme or even a “moral of the story” piece of journalism. AND I’m not offended one bit by this piece. BUT occasionally a writer tries to hard. That’s the way this comes across to me. My wife was a professional journalist for 40+ years and authored a couple of books. I’m sure she’d say the use of Pearl Harbor in this way…is over the top. No question the SC game was an epic disaster by our Vols. Let’s leave it there IMO.
