| More Sports Board|| Halfway through the NFL Season: Predicting who gets in the playoffs - theGarnetWay on 10/31/14 at 1:20 pm|
Tough predictions this time a year with only 2 teams having a division lead of more than 1 game.
Those 2 are Denver who has 1.5 game lead over San Diego and Arizona who has a 2 game lead over San Francisco and Seattle.
Other 6 division leaders are Dallas, New Orleans, Detroit, New England, Ci...
| South Carolina Sports|| Can we win out and finish 8-4? - theGarnetWay on 10/26/14 at 12:00 am|
Remaining schedule won't be easy.
Neither UT or @UF will be easy by any stretch, especially since we have proven this season that we can lose to teams we should beat. However, neither of them are looking very good this season either so they are games we defi...
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| Order of hate for the other Texas teams? - theGarnetWay on 10/25/14 at 2:42 pm|
I recall an Aggie poster on here saying that the one thing that he did like about the SWC was because it was essentially the Texas conference, and all the Texas teams would spend every Saturday playing each other, so how does A&M "rank" the other Texas teams on the hate scale?
I assume the Horns...

Sons of Anarchy

Orange is the New Black
Tried Mad Men but never really got into it....
| More Sports Board|| Who would you rather have: Joe Flacco or Matt Ryan? - theGarnetWay on 10/16/14 at 2:30 pm|
With the Atlanta-Baltimore match-up this weekend the Ravens posted an infographic about the two QBs. I thought it was kind of interesting because I think both of them are firmly in the better half of NFL QBs but not in the top 3-5.
Both of course were drafted in the same year.
| South Carolina Sports|| Anyone think the A&M beat down will be a blessing in disguise? - theGarnetWay on 9/19/14 at 5:44 pm|
I really think that getting smashed by the Aggies in week 1 could prove to be one of the better things that happened to us. We still have some vulnerabilities in the secondary but I think being humbled really got them inspired to be better in hopes of never being embarrassed like that again.
| SEC Rant|| Flipping the script: SC 9-1 in last 10 vs UGA / Clemson.. 2-8 in the previous 10 - theGarnetWay on 9/14/14 at 12:26 pm|
Well the title pretty much says it all. We've won 5 in a row vs Clemson and 4/5 against UGA.
The best part? These aren't scrub teams that we have beaten. Almost all 9 of these wins have been against ranked teams. Clemson has won the ACC and been to a couple of BCS bowls. UGA has won the East a c...
| South Carolina Sports|| scrooster: You may have a companion - theGarnetWay on 9/13/14 at 1:57 pm|
Just got a request for access from a guy who says he was 73 and played RB under Frank Howard. He may be a Tiger but as a former history major and current history enthusiast I would love to here some back and forth stories.
| SEC Rant|| A brief history on UGA's inability to score in Cola for 20 years - theGarnetWay on 9/10/14 at 5:23 pm|
Thought this would be an interesting read. For those that have ventured into the recent SC / UGA fans you'll find the Gamecocks predicting a pretty gloomy outcome whereas the UGA fans expect to win, but are timid in calling for a blowout.
This is a pretty good indicator as to why. Essentially, o...
| Movie/TV Board|| Can anyone explain King Thranduil's burn in the 2nd Hobbit movie? - theGarnetWay on 8/30/14 at 7:42 pm|
Rewatching the 2nd movie and I don't think it was explained in the book. In fact I think he was initially only titled "the Elven King" or something, and not given a name.
Anyway, if you recall when the elves capture the dwarves and Thranduil talks to Thorin he talks about facing dragons in the pa...

Thought you guys might enjoy this little documentary about the rising drug violence in Rosario, Argentina and how it ties into their local teams. It's about 30 minutes between the three parts.
Love most of Vice News' stuff, they really get in the front lines and interview people from all sides of...
| Movie/TV Board|| PG / PG 13 movies you would like to see as a rated R film? - theGarnetWay on 8/21/14 at 12:53 pm|
Stupid thread is stupid but this kind of stems from the thread about which films you'd like to see remade and which ones you wouldn't.
Caught Jumanji again last night, it's not a film I'd like to see be directly duplicated but I think a "rated R" version of the film could be pretty epic.

I'm not an expert on British history so I only know of the "major ones". Some candidates.

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...
| SEC Rant|| Educate a Millenial: Why did so many fans wear white back in the day? - theGarnetWay on 8/17/14 at 10:27 pm|
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...
| Movie/TV Board|| LOTR Plot Hole? 6,000 Rohirrim in the 3rd movie.. where were they at Helm's Deep - theGarnetWay on 8/17/14 at 2:51 pm|
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...

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...

The first time I watched this I figured they cut it because it didn't really advance the story to an already long movie but I think the Mouth of Sauron is a pretty cool character and idea. Plus it...

Catching some of shark week, doing a human attack show so was just wondering if anyone here had ever been attacked by a shark?
Or perhaps the hunters / hikers of the OT ever had an encounter with a bear, mountain lion, wolf? etc.
| Movie/TV Board|| Has there ever been a triology where the 3rd edition was the best of the 3? - theGarnetWay on 8/9/14 at 8:54 pm|
Matrix - Certainly not
Lord of the Rings - I enjoy all 3 movies but I probably prefer the first two to the last one
Star Wars (original trilogy) - No. Because Ewoks.
Alien - 2nd one is my personal favorite
