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

BSC is selling or auctioning off tons of stuff from campus. Last night was an alumni/family-only preview sale but it's public as of this morning. You do have to pick it up in person though. There's some legit art (paintings, vases, antique furniture, etc). Think about how a university would accumula...

Re: 10 members of NC State's 1983 national champions sue NCAA over name, image and likeness compensation

My comment the other day when I saw that story was that if they won, nobody will ever make highlight videos again, for risk of having to pay all the people in them. No more "greatest endings of games" or whatever. Kentucky fans would rejoice, never having to see Christian Laettner again. W...

Re: Jayden Lewis Named #90 (#25 CB) Impact True Freshman by 247

I noted in the upper-right of that photo it appears to say (I'm assuming) our "first-ever four star recruit"?

Is that really true? Or is he just the first four star per 247?

Re: Indoor Practice Facility: Delay Cannot Be Money. Is it just logistics?

I have zero idea about the actual design we are planning with the bubble (i.e., will it have some permanent portion, like solid walls around the perimeter to get the curved bubble part up higher and allow kicking?), but if it's literally just going to be a fabric bubble like what was on Bruff quad f...

Re: AAC preview

What would help is if a few teams pull P4 upsets early in the season, particularly, in our case, if Memphis beats Florida St, that gives them a quality win and would give us one by association if we beat Memphis (assuming they don’t implode during the season). At the very least, a good OOC record r...

They were up 4-0 early, and let the other team come back via (stop me if you've heard this before) walks, hit batters, and wild pitches. They were d...
