UCF Championship Rings coming in next week! - Bamapossum
[img]http://caymancode.com/wp-content/uploads/ba/thumb-bazooka-ring-pop-royal-engagement-ring-limited.jpg[/img] I wonder if they are all the same, or if they get a choice of flavors?...

re: Gus Malzahn advocates for 8 team playoff - Bamapossum
[quote]I hear what you’re saying but still like this approach. You win your conference and you’re in. Every team has a shot. Whether you deserve to be there will be determined on the field. It will suck for the SEC since we only get one chance but it really would put the focus on the regular season....

re: Gus Malzahn advocates for 8 team playoff - Bamapossum
Dumb is dumb! Some conferences are weak enough in some years that their winner does not deserve to be in the race. Like the Big 10 or PAC 10 this year. It would be better to do away with a conference championship game and simply go by wins/losses like it used to be. There have been years when ...

re: Gus Malzahn advocates for 8 team playoff - Bamapossum
[quote]It is impossible to make it totally an earned spot. However, if you stay at 4 you need to require a conference title and write some Notre Dame loop hole about them being ranked top 4[/quote] I'm going to say it as often as I can. Being a conference champion is a dumb requirement. If you re...

re: Gus Malzahn advocates for 8 team playoff - Bamapossum
[quote]I just want it to be a playoff spot that you earn on the field and not by a subjective committee.[/quote] There are too many teams in FBS to do this logically. You can't turn the whole season into playoffs. The polls must continue to be used. Automatically giving P5 champions a spot is ...

re: Gus Malzahn advocates for 8 team playoff - Bamapossum
Here's the end result eventually: 3 SEC teams make the final 4. The rest of the country continues to moan, piss, and groan, "We need a 16 team playoff!" BAM! 4 or 5 SEC teams in the finals. This will turn the regular season into the same crap that the NFL and NCAA BB have become. The regular seas...

re: Jennings Update - Bamapossum
Anfernee's mother is still with him at the hospital, but I will say a couple of things: 1. His season is over, but he will likely make a full recovery. He had to have surgery yesterday. 2. He is in good spirits, but very disappointed that he will not be able to play on Monday. I will not co...

re: Texas' Fastest Speeding Tickets of 2017... - Bamapossum
Sort of a similar story. It was about 1983 or 1984. I remember that I was 13 years old, riding with my uncle on US HWY 280 East between Sylacauga and Alexander City, AL. Those were the double nickel days. A red Corvette, probably a 69 model, passed us at a very high rate of speed. I am assuming ...

re: How much do you guys spend on Christmas? - Bamapossum
If you are talking about presents, it was probably about $400 for my wife and two daughters. If you throw in the 4 nights 5 days in NYC on Christmas vacation, it was about $3600....

re: Tennessee will never be "back" - Bamapossum
Eleven years ago, I sat on this board and read thread after thread explaining why Alabama was a "has been". They were a thing of the past, living precariously on the memories of a deceased head coach who could never be replaced in the modern era. Why couldn't Bama fans get their heads out of the clo...

re: 3 of the 4 CFP Teams are from the Deep South - Bamapossum
Oklahoma is essentially a Southern state as well. Oklahoma is made up primarily of Native Americans and other Southerners who moved west after the Civil War. There are many places in Oklahoma named after places in other Southern states. The Okies that inhabit agricultural California are the desce...

re: ISIS threat “we meet at Christmas in New York....soon” - Bamapossum
My family and I are going to New York City in two weeks. This Christmas trip has been planned since this summer and I have spent way more on it than I care to share. Two Broadway shows, Empire State Building, Ellis island, Statue of Liberty, 911 Memorial, etc... While I am not overly concerned, I...

re: How many Gen X/baby boomer people here were Blue Dog Democrats back in the day? - Bamapossum
Nope. Voted for Bush Sr. in 1988. I have voted for local Democrats for local offices, but that's because it took a while for the older folks to switch parties. My grandparents were the old Dixiecrat style of Democrat. They would have voted for FDR's corpse if they ran him again too....

re: Auburn bama fans help me out here - Bamapossum
I have two interesting examples. 1. I have known this HS coach for many years. You rarely see him when he is not wearing some piece of Auburn gear. He goes to several home games a year. His undergraduate degree is from The University of Alabama. The kicker: He played baseball at Alabama on schola...

re: How lucky is Bama - Bamapossum
Well, let's see... Denny decided to invest in football (and bring in lots of money from Jewish households in the NE that were victims of antisemitism). He built a decidedly nice and advanced campus for the Southeast at that time. Wallace Wade (The first "Bear") comes in and makes Alabama a pow...

re: Any Masons on here? - Bamapossum
I will not argue with you, but there are a few points that you miss. 1) Masonry is not a religion. It does not supersede a member's faith. Masonry does not offer salvation. 2) Masonry involves NO politics. 3) There are many writers that have exposed Bigfoot, space aliens, the Loch Ness Monster, and ...
