[quote]Literally nobody cares[/quote] Okay, just to make you happy, I tabulated a similar list for the SEC's expansion teams: 1) Missouri - 9 (1893, '94, '95 in the WIUFA; 1909, '13, '19, '24, '25, '27 in the Big 8) 2) Texas A&M - 5 (1917, '19, '21, '25, '27 in the SWC) 3-tie) Arkansas - 0 ...

re: Who started the SEC chant, UGA or the SWC? - TheDude321
1984 - Florida fans chanted it after beating Auburn, because UF was about to win its first SEC football title 1986 - Kentucky fans chanted it during the LSU-Georgia Tech game in the NCAA basketball regionals (UK fans were there, because the Wildcats were in the same regional) 1991 - Mississippi St...

re: When does LSU change their mascot? - TheDude321
You've opened up quite a can of worms here. :lol: If LSU is targeted, then Missouri, North Carolina, etc. are also going to have to change theirs as well. I guess it depends on if they all still link their mascots to the Confederates in any way. :spank:...

The pre-SEC era South's best teams (a.k.a. Vandy feel-good thread) - TheDude321
If Wikipedia can be believed, here are the conference champs in the conferences that were forerunners to the SEC (that is, the SIAA from 1895-1921 and SoCon from 1922-32). Current SEC teams are in boldface: [b]1) Vanderbilt - 13[/b] (1897, 1901, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '10, '11, '12, '15, '22, ...

[quote] Problem is, the ACC is likely not going anywhere.[/quote] Doesn't the ACC now have a buy-out clause? No way any team can leave now without getting sued big time. Some schools may desire to leave because of the UNC basketball bias that their league office has, but the legal issues will s...

[quote]That "other flag" was almost completely unused in that era, so, no, you are dead wrong.[/quote] Everyone back then, as today, knows about the Confederate flag. Everyone. That isn't even debatable. A little known fact is that the first 20 years after Reconstruction the South actually kep...

re: To what extent does your state fly/use the confederate flag? - TheDude321
Dude, you're fighting a losing battle here. Yes, there is an older design that our state flag was "officially" based on in 1895, but even the most ardent supporters of our state flag acknowledge that its design was almost certainly defacto selected due to its strong resemblance to a certain other f...

re: American Left Totally Cool With Communism. - TheDude321
I see what you're saying, but you have to handle the three rogue countries on a case-by-case basis. Iraq was invadible because two-thirds of its population supported getting rid of Saddam. Iran isn't invadible because their population fully supports the ruling theocracy--just gotta use sanctions w...
