| Movie/TV Board|| re: Atari:Game Over trailer - Bankshot on 1/21/15 at 4:56 pm|
I want to see this. I was a kid when Atari was popular. The ET game was easily the worst Atari game I can remember. I bought it in the $5 bargain bin back in the mid-80's. I probably still have it in a box at my parents' house now that I think about it....
| SEC Rant|| re: What is your team's most epic collapse? - Bankshot on 1/21/15 at 4:53 pm|
1992 Peach Bowl against UNC. Up 14-0, could have easily been 28-0 if not for two holding calls and then offense and special teams collapse in the second half. Two punt blocks and also an int. return for TD. Ended up losing 21-17.
1994 against Bama. Blow 10 point lead in the last se...

It is funny how the white liberal "elite" consider him the high priest of the African American community. Insult the President of the United States himself and then beg Sharpton for forgiveness. ...
| Coaching Changes|| re: The game Clemson game up 70 to Geno and WVU - Bankshot on 1/15/15 at 10:14 am|
My memory of watching that game was how fast it got out of control. It went from an almost tied ball game in the 2nd quarter with Clemson about to score and have the lead to WVU taking back a 99-yard fumble return and the next thing you know it was 49-20 at halftime and the game was over.

It's a wonder they don't just film their whole series in the south to save on travel costs. I bet there are more old barns, storage sheds, etc. loaded with junk in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and Tennessee than they could ever dream of. ...

Yes, I will say that O'Reilly is an equal opportunity basher. I don't watch his show as much now as I used to, but he constantly hammers the celebrities that he feels are "secular progressives", whether they are white, black, etc. ...

Seeing this movie when it came out as a kid, I always thought the power laces and self-drying jacket were the coolest aspects to the 2015 shown in the film. Flying cars (even if it were somehow possible) always just seemed way to dangerous for average drivers to me considering the number of wrecks ...

Used to ride the Metro all the time when up in DC for training from 1999 through 2001. I Never had an issue while riding. It was nice to see how clean it was as well....
| Movie/TV Board|| re: VH1 just turned 30. Anyone remember pop-up videos? - Bankshot on 1/5/15 at 10:08 pm|
Yes, I remember when all they did was play videos on VH1. Back in the 80's it was the adult contemporary version of MTV. Lots of Phil Collins, Lionel Richie, Billy Joel, Tina Turner and Elton John music. Rosie O'Donnell was one of their hosts. Pop-up video came later and was fine. That was befor...

[quote]Crime of the century? Back in the day only the conference tournament champs made the NCAA tournament. SC was 25-3, 14-0 in ACC play for the 1969-70 season. We won the ACC regular season but lost in the title game of the ACC tournament. Missed the big dance. [/quote]
Very true, also a crime...

I had a friend while in college that was pulled over for speeding (around 85 MPH on a two-lane highway in north Mississippi). He was a hothead by nature and decided to get out of the car before the cop reached the vehicle. He slammed the door when he got out. The cop had pulled out his gun and to...

"They aren't attractive to bigger conferences."
The academics side is what is going to keep them out of a P5 conference. They (Boise) were a JUCO until the late 60's if my memory serves.

Has there been any consideration to move the football program to FCS? If the BOT doesn't want a new stadium maybe they could get the Hoover Met restructured for 20,000 to 30,000 capacity and move the games there. As far as I can tell the Met is only currently used for Hoover High football and the ...
| More Sports Board|| re: UAB spinoff -- What happens to Legion Field? - Bankshot on 12/1/14 at 12:15 pm|
Other than the field being kept well, the stadium hasn't been kept up well at all. I guess they will keep it for the one SWAC game plus SWAC championship game and that's it. State championships have moved and the Birmingham Bowl can't even maintain a sponsor, and it will soon be gone as well. ...

I just saw the film on Sunday. Enjoyed the film but I didn't catch them mentioning whether the wormhole was closed at the end or not. I figured it was still open since the daughter told Cooper to find Brand. Maybe the book mentions this....
