re: Anti-Spanking PSA on the radio - SJTide
Same here. Lots of other ways to alter behavior. I'm not against spanking but it shouldn't be done in anger. It is also kid-specific. Some kids react to just the threat of a spanking, some can be spanked daily and still not change their behavior. ...

re: Former Vol Albert Haynesworth needs a kidney - SJTide
I was at that game. It was pathetic. His kid went to my kids' high school for a few years and left a trail of problems behind (fired coaches etc). That family is not looked upon favorably in our area. That being said, I do hope things go well for Albert. ...

re: Alabama rated as the EASIEST school in the SEC to get into - SJTide
The Presidential merit scholarship (100K over 4yrs) for applicants with an ACT score of 32 or above is a major contributor for the increase in out-of-state attendees. I believe that over 50% of the student body is from out of state now. My son just finished his freshman year there and most of his ...

re: Vice is rational: forgive student loans; don't give Amazon money - SJTide
Agree. I might be okay with the interest being waived and a percentage of the loan forgiven (25%) for degrees in certain fields or proven employment in certain jobs. ...

re: Tigers put bite on 'Bama 20-7 - SJTide
The fact that it was on a Monday night didn't help the attendance figures but also, at that time, 59/20 to Tuscaloosa not complete and 65 north of Birmingham was not complete either. Getting to B'ham on a workday was probably a pain for most folks would didn't live there. ...

re: Tigers put bite on 'Bama 20-7 - SJTide
If I recall, this was the first game of the season. Labor day was the previous week on 9/1. The schedule for the season shows that it was 1 of 2 two Bama regular season games nationally televised that year (ABC). It may have been scheduled to fill the Monday Football time slot since the NFL didn'...

re: Saban disappointed with Bama home attendance, says Bama fans aren't entitled to anything - SJTide
My gripe is that freshman can only buy packages for select games. My son got A&M and Miss St this year. He would go to all if he had tickets. I believe there is a system in place that penalizes the students if they don't use their tickets which can lead to loss of ticket buying privileges. H...

re: Bama students/ fans make Damien Harris sad - SJTide
The student section wasn't nearly that empty at kickoff but was certainly not full. They were streaming out in the 2nd quarter and at the half. My family and I were sitting next to the student section in the upper deck (and are probably in that photo somewhere). It was a warm day and the 11 am kic...

re: Thoughts on high school education requirements - SJTide
My kids are in public school in middle TN and are required to take health and personal finance. The personal finance class was pretty basic but they did cover budgeting, credit, borrowing/interest, balancing a check book and filing a tax return. They also had a section on "want" versus "need". Eco...

re: UPDATE Nashville No Tax 4 Tracks vs. $9 Billion cost CRUSHED!!! - SJTide
I65 is a crap shoot in the morning. I generally take Franklin Rd into Brentwood. I miss working in Cool Springs. Downtown Nashville has really changed since we've been here as well. I love the Ascend amph. That was a great use of that property. Parking is getting much more expensive and all the l...

re: UPDATE Nashville No Tax 4 Tracks vs. $9 Billion cost CRUSHED!!! - SJTide
We bought our house in Franklin 17 yrs ago and it has more than doubled in value. When my kids get out of college, I don't think they'll be able to afford to live here on their own. It is still a great place to live but the traffic has gotten progressively worse. The schools are great though. ...

re: Give me your greatest baseball player that played at your school... - SJTide
I've seen him play both sports at both levels. He was the best athlete that I've ever seen (that's coming from a Bama alumni). I wonder how his basketball skills were. It would have been crazy to see him play with Barkley and Person....
