Were the Gitmo Detainees Who Were Released Terrorists or Something Else? - mmcgrath
I keep hearing people refer to the Gitmo detainees who were exchanged for Bergdahl as terrorists. However, I am skeptical that we could actually tie them to any specific terrorist attack. They were all clearly members of the Taliban, who was the ruling party of Afghanistan when we attacked. Of cours...

Can Coach Jones give O'Bryant some rest??? - mmcgrath
He played all but 10 seconds of the first half until he drew his second foul with a couple of minutes left. It was clear that with 5+ minutes to go he was gassed. What happened to playing Odo and Malone as a second unit with Coleman? Does every play have to be run for O'Bryant when he is in ther...

Thank Goodness We Got Mett All Those Extra Reps Against UAB and Kent State - mmcgrath
... am I right? I mean clearly those reps are paying dividends now. Letting the backup QB's throw in games against the cupcakes on our schedule would have been a huge mistake.

If No-one Signs Up for Obamacare... (Would it last?) - mmcgrath

Should someone with Aaron Alexis' background be allowed to own a firearm? - mmcgrath

Where would you rank Landry with All Time LSU Receivers? - mmcgrath
I think that before last season he was ranked below Toliver and Randle (among recent receivers). I think he may rank ahead of them right now and since he may very well be the number one target all year long (and has a stable of QB's and a good OC to get him the ball), this year could be a very speci...
