With the dollar up in value gold and silver have fallen. They seem to keep bouncing off of about the same resistance (high 1200's for gold, around 20+ for silver).
For those who are interested in buying either gold or silver for "safety" against fiat money inflation or hyperinflation, is this a...

Bear Bryant's first game as Alabama coach took place in Mobile against eventual 1958 National Champion LSU. A section of the stadium collapsed during the game.
[b]Most notable among the Tide's games in Mobile was the 1958 season-opener against LSU, a contest that holds the distinction of being...

I say losing by 3 to LSU.
Followed by Arky, Penn State, and shutting out a pretty good Vandy team. After that ??

I suggest we create a preseason pool to predict who will play in the 35 bowl games at the end of the 2011 season.
Don't laugh; it gives us something to think about until late August besides golf and pro baseball.
Approach: Pick teams for all 35 bowl games. Pick the predicted winner for eac...

It seemed for a few years, we frequently ran a play where the QB and FB started right as in an option, and the QB would toss the ball to the TB who went left, often untouched, or one on one with one D back.
Has that play been used all season? It seemed very effective....

Picked OM 6, Bama 8, LSU 17, but said its because of OM easier schedule and LSU's difficult east schedule and road schedule.
His power ratings had LSU in the top 10, but schedule brought them down.
Unfortunately made too much sense.
Anyone see his publication? http://www.philsteele.com/

My team tied in Pick 'em survivor last week and I was allowed to continue.

If the stock goes up a lot it will gain value f...
