Bryant and Saban: Wishbone and WC HUNH - PurpleandGold Motown
Much is made of Bryant installing the wishbone one off season and quickly going on one of the greatest runs in college football history. At the time, it was said that the game had passed Bryant by and a once great coach was simply resting on the laurels of his past achievements. Then, he did what...

That bit at the bottom of the popsicle - PurpleandGold Motown
How do you get that last bit of popsicle off the stick? Nibble around the edges and hope half doesn't fall on the floor? Deep throat the popsicle stick and try not to gag yourself? The pushpop method? Something else?...

Why Assume Muschamp Returns to the Coordinator Ranks? - PurpleandGold Motown
He's got nothing to prove a defensive coordinator. Everyone [i]knows[/i] he can coach a defense. It's his skills as a head coach that are in question. Why not take the head coaching gig at a smaller school with less pressure rather than risk a few bad defensive years and being permanently buried?...

Luttrell As Guest Picker - PurpleandGold Motown
Really? We can't get a guest picker who is at least recognizable and culturally relevant? I know getting someone who is a fan or associated with the school is too much to ask, but come on. How many times in a row is it that Gameday's guest picker in Tuscaloosa is the most underwhelming of the...

Ole Miss and State's Staying Power - PurpleandGold Motown
I don't think anyone questions the talent and skill of Ole Miss and State's starting 22. They've more than proven themselves over the past weeks, but neither team has recruited lights out in the past few years. Most teams that win it all tend to be deep at almost every position. Do they have the ...

The Business of Fitness - PurpleandGold Motown
So, I quit smoking. Yay me, and I want to get back into running. I was a state level mid-distance (800, 1600, 3200) in high school. Turned down athletic scholarships to party and drink through college. Anyway, so I want to run again and stave off weight gain -- maybe compete in a few half and f...

Does Roddy White Plan on Playing this Year? - PurpleandGold Motown
The man has been hurt the whole year. What did he play? Two games as a decoy before heading to the sidelines? It seems like he's just given up on the season and plans on riding it out until it's over. Damn. At least Julio had surgery before calling it quits. Roddy never even got started....

Cable Tech/Company Rant - PurpleandGold Motown
Is there a greater collection of drug addict, mentally challenged frickups than the cable company -- any cable company? My cable has been fricked for going on six months. Not totally fricked. Annoying fricked. Channels pixelate and skip at random times. Internet just decides to quit for fifteen minut...

The Gentleman's Agreement has to Go! - PurpleandGold Motown
There is a gentleman's agreement within the two-party system. Basically, it's an unspoken -- or perhaps spoken -- agreement to never bring up things where both parties are at fault. The ending of this agreement is one of the primary benefits of adding a viable third or even fourth party into the mix...

How Would Americans Respond to a One-Term President? - PurpleandGold Motown
I said in another thread America needs Cincinattus not Caesar as our next President. In case you are unfamiliar with Cincinattus, he was a roman senator. After the execution of his, he left public life to tend his farm. During a time of crisis, the senate appointed him dictator with absolute p...

Liberal Leaning FB Friends Are Remarkably Quiet - PurpleandGold Motown
Most of the time they are chirping up a storm, and they were certianly vocal right after the shutdown. But that's changed in the last two days or so. They are really quiet right now. Normally me posting anything about healthcare, smaller government, how the president is being disingenuous w...

Personal Opinion or Conviction Versus Policy - PurpleandGold Motown
Why do our politicians and the electorate insist on leaders turning their personal opinions and convictions into policy? Why does no one say, "Even though I feel this way, I cannot make it policy. I don't have the authority?" And why can't the American public accept that? :dunno:...
