[quote]just watched a couple of the Birmingham stations they are saying more around the 40% to 50% chance of passing showers[/quote]It is strange that none of the models seem to be matching up and we are roughly 24 hours away from kickoff.
Weather channel has 60-80% chance.
NWS Birmingham has ...

[quote]I say play fake to CAP with a Bomb to Duke. AU up 7-0 10 seconds into the game.[/quote] This was my first thought as well, but then I got to thinking, with JJ starting, Arky may be expecting the pass, so maybe some form of draw play to CAP....

The '57 "throwbacks" were pretty cool as a one off.
Watching Bo, Barkley and The Big Hurt got me thinking that I wouldn't mind seeing a game (maybe HC) where they bring back the orange facemask....

[quote]Each submarine is projected to make 14-15 deployments during its 33-year service life.[/quote]
If the SSNs are anything like the SSBNs (missile subs), a deployment is a 6 month cruise. So in a 33 year service life it will be deployed for a total of 7.5 years (25%)?
Even if a deployment...

[quote]How long do the birds live? And do they get to a point where they are "too old" to perform the flight?[/quote]I want to say that the average lifespan of an eagle in the wild is 26 years. Tiger was 34 when she died this summer.
As for getting too old to fly, not really sure. Tiger was ret...

I am hoping they are right, but as Saturday gets closer I am e...

[quote]Do any other AU fans feel like the Eagle flight has lost its luster the last 3-4 years? It's still cool for sure but it seems like the Eagle pretty much just flies from the perch maybe circles like a quarter of the stadium and then lands. Back in the mid 00s I feel like it used to circle f...

I will be there. Section 13, row 41 I think.
First year in the news seats, moving from Section 39, row 61. Finally get to be closer to AUMB and get away from the visiting sections in the north endzone....

As it has already pointed out that isn't his daughter.
But unless his daughter is butt ugly, the answer to the question is still going to be yes. I don't see the big deal about Webb. She isn't really that attractive at all IMHO. If she hadn't been dating AJ she would never have gotten this muc...

White, southern, conservative, Christians who oppose abortion and gay marriage are persecuted by liberals and the media on a daily basis.

Maybe have Nick win the Heisman with as close to 50/50 passing/rushing stats as possible....
