Re: Michael Pratt to Saints?

With the Saints just signing a fourth QB through free angency (the guy who was originally drafted by the Saints new OC) they are definitely not taking a QB

Re: Birmingham-Southern College closing May 31 as loan bill fails to gain support: ‘This is a tragic day’

That said, I'm content with everyone ignoring those of us who are in GenX. I mean, we're kinda used to it.... :lol: Being ignored has kinda been our thing for... half a century or so. That, and self aggrandizing and obsessing (boomer style) about how much better we are because we were ignored lol (...

Re: Birmingham-Southern College closing May 31 as loan bill fails to gain support: ‘This is a tragic day’

You may be familiar with Virginia Intermont given where you are from. It's now defunct and has been for a few years but when they made the decision to close, I believe they had a deal for students partway down a path to finish up at King University as the university of record. Far from ideal, but a...

Re: Birmingham-Southern College closing May 31 as loan bill fails to gain support: ‘This is a tragic day’

I followed the odyssey of Sweetbriar College in Virginia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_Briar_College ) in 2015. They were brought right to the brink of closing, but an organized protest and several lawsuits managed to stave off closure, and the college remains open a decade later. I haven't...

Re: New College Football Super league ?

As bad as this is this is wildly more workable than most imagined versions of the super league. They are getting right: 1) The number, which doesn't totally block the Tulane's of the world 2) the need for relegation What they are missing is how equitable that relegation should be. Having the ten G5s...

Re: Birmingham-Southern College closing May 31 as loan bill fails to gain support: ‘This is a tragic day’

When I was first on the job market, not even quite dissertation in hand, really not ready for the job market at all, I somehow got an interview with Birmingham Southern. We wanted the gig because it was in a region we wanted to be in, and were sad when I didn't get it. Now I'm realizing how lucky I ...

Re: Ashley Langford hired as new WBB coach

I heard rumors of this even before CLS stepped down That's concerning. Conceptually, potentially, except I don't see much to be concerned about this hire when I look at her resume. Seems like a slam dunk. Meanwhile, the rumors could just as easily be people looking around at who they'd want us to g...

Re: Ashley Langford hired as new WBB coach

Hey Trout, changing the entire first post and topic to Langford in place of the Kennedy talk makes this thread confusing and also would lead people to the wrong conclusions about many posts after the OP. For instance, ml's very next post was about Kennedy but now appears to be about Langford. You p...

Re: Point of order... the season is over ....Hunter should be fired

One can hope that Coach Stockton’s retirement means that our AD is having hard conversations with underachievers from last season and we get some news about Hunter soon.
