[quote]PET SCAN was the thing that caught it.[/quote]
My dad was initially diagnosed with lung cancer in May. He's had over 6 scans total ranging from PET, CT, MRI's. It wasn't until after the tumor on his lung was removed and had an additional scan that it was found. Even then it was supposed to...

This is why I thought the field goal against auburn last year was a good call. He made a 53 yarder Saturday. Just 4 yards shy of the length attempted in the Iron Bowl. Having seen him make those kicks in high school I was furious that he was not put in earlier in the year over Foster. ...

I don't see how this stuff ever sticks. Per NIMS (National Incident Management System) the fire service is in charge of then scene. The officer of the fire company is in charge until his duties are complete and he transfers command to the police. He can shut down the entire road if he feels it's nec...

[quote]Sims exceeded expectations. And we are Mostly disappointed. Think about that.[/quote]
Sims exceeded as far as staying calm and not making bad decisions (to me at least) but that doesn't negate the fact that majority of his throws were within 10 yards (24 comp for 250 yards). And that's not...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Sims Surprised Me But I'm Still Not Happy - GAFF on 8/30/14 at 9:25 pm|
Exactly. It's obvious the kid has skill. He made some good decisions and turned some plays that would have been sacks into extra yardage But he didn't show me anything that made me put my faith in him. Maybe it's game 1 doubts or maybe I'm use to AJ but he left me with a "meh" feeling. With all the ...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Sims Surprised Me But I'm Still Not Happy - GAFF on 8/30/14 at 9:13 pm|
I'm gonna start with saying that Sims impressed me, and for Coker to not get any playing time says a lot, but I'm still not on the Sims band wagon. I think he's serviceable but not the type of QB to take control and lean on when needing a game winning drive. You can point to the 73% completions and ...

Point taken. I was mainly saying that if I knew he could make it then I'm certain Saban did as well. May not have been the most opportune time, but if you have a kid who you know can make it why not g...
| SEC Rant|| re: WTF was Saban thinking kicking that FG? - GAFF on 8/14/14 at 10:37 pm|
The kid can actually make that kick. He made a 54 yarder (with yards to spare) in high school against my high school. I actually thought it was gonna be good when he kicked it. Everyone giving him hell after the game last year was ridiculous. He's gonna be a stud. ...

Mac. I use to think a Mac was just a status symbol until I actually bought one. I'll never go back to PC. It's so much more user friendly and the durability far exceeds anything you'll find from Dell or HP. I bought a refurbished MacBook for $880. A PC with the same capability would have cost me $10...
