[quote]who are some in the past ?[/quote]
Joseph Barreca from the late 90s, walkon DT, tried FB one spring and ran over people for ~100 yards in the spring game.
Elice Parker walked on in the same era and would even get carries during games. I think he also had one very good spring game....

Is it a risk that the NCAA might rattle their sabers? Sure. But by the letter of the NCAA's laws, it's fine. If it's legal on paper, it should be the family's call if they want to take the risk. And to them, what they gain from it might not be considered "unnec...

The problems I see, as someone who used to work at MSY, is that it just doesn't look big enough in any sense. Current MSY's footprint is perfect for efficient handling of the current passenger load. You are going to get rid of a bunch of gates, have less space for baggage carousels, have a shorte...

A good theory is it is solar energy related. When some aspect of the solar energy dissipates (a few hours after sunset, in other words midnight) food gives mogwais the special evil type of heartburn. And then when the sun starts to rise, the energy that keeps that from happening comes back.
