| SEC Rant|| The actor chosen to portray Bear Bryant in Forrest Gump was terrible - Honest Tune on 10/9/15 at 1:06 pm|
I'm guessing that the actor did zero research on the character he was playing. His mannerisms/speech/accent weren't anywhere close to accurate. Hell they should have done Bear like they did with Lennon and LBJ, superimposed if you will. Poor casting choice in an otherwise great movie. ...View Topic - Replies (20)

My guess is after he got out of D.C. he stopped caring as much as he did when he was in Gainesville and had the chip on his shoulder. It seems that the NFL really took some fight out of the OBC. Yes I realize Florida had elite talent in the 90s, but South Carolina gets their fair share of playma...View Topic - Replies (10)

Would Gus have allowed Spoon to live? Before Jake put the spurs into the horse, it seemed as though Gus was contemplating his fate and possibly thinking of letting him go. And his conversation afterwards with Newt implies such. I know, for fact, Call would have let him swing and tried not to get bl...View Topic - Replies (9)

I was discussing this with a friend last night. Young, early 20s Shaquille was an unstoppable force, an outlier of strength and court awareness like the NBA hadn't seen from a big man in quite some time. A lot of people believe that the only reason he was able to lead the Magic to the finals is...View Topic - Replies (8)
