USF: The Program that Almost Was - theGarnetWay
Yeah it nearly sounds like a 30 for 30 topic but I figured this could be an interesting discussion. Has anyone ever seen a program climb out of obscurity, appear to be on the "cusp", and then completely collapse? Jim Leavitt was their first ever coach in 1997. In his final 4 seasons he had 34 win...

Educate a Millenial: Why did so many fans wear white back in the day? - theGarnetWay
Stupid and irrelevant question but I've always wondered this. Watching the 1980 SC-UGA game now and so many people are wearing white and this seems to be true for almost all fan bases when classic games are on? Why is that? Was it just the fad of the day? Was school merchandise not as readily availa...

LOTR Plot Hole? 6,000 Rohirrim in the 3rd movie.. where were they at Helm's Deep - theGarnetWay
So this has always been something that has bothered me about these movies, maybe someone can help me catch something I missed in the film or perhaps it's answered in the books. Anyway when the Rohirrim attack Sauron's forces at Peleenor Fields the Rohirrim are 6,000 strong right? But where the he...

OT History Buffs: What do you know about Germany's America Bomber? Amerika* - theGarnetWay
I remember hearing about it a while ago on some show I was catching on the tube. Always thought it was interesting to think about what would've happened if WW2 had taken a course in which Germany came to us. If I recall correctly the bomber was designed specifically to bomb our cities. Makes me a...

How did you become a fan of whatever club team you root for? - theGarnetWay
I've said it before that as much as I try to get into soccer and the EPL seems to be the main road for most Americans. I understand why, broadcast in English, an elite league, and I imagine many can even trace some roots back to a specific region / city. With that said I just can't latch myself on t...
