re: Could someone remind me what the job is of the U.S. Congress? - RollTide1987

re: Pat Forde from the top rope and onto the Tennessee football program... - RollTide1987
[quote]And Bama's permanent opponent [/quote] It's not Alabama's fault that Tennessee's football program imploded in 2010 when Lane Kiffin said bye-bye to Knoxville. Since that time they have made a series of terrible hires that have plunged them further and further into the abyss of irrelevance....

Pat Forde from the top rope and onto the Tennessee football program... - RollTide1987
[quote]When you are Tennessee in its current state, you make a Maybe Hire. Maybe it works out. Maybe it doesn’t. You can have hope, but no certainty. You’re in no position to lure a surefire, A-list candidate to lead your dilapidated football program—new athletic director Danny White tried that i...

McG to direct Turner & Hootch remake - RollTide1987
FML those a-holes (meaning Hollywood) have no more original ideas. Remake, reboot, or sequel. That's the name of the game. Independent filmmaking and streaming television are the futures of the industry. [link=(https://moviehole.net/charlies-angels-helmer-rebooting-turner-hooch/)]Moviehole [/li...

[quote]What was Hooker’s goal? To flank Lee’s strong defensive position at Fredericksburg and take Richmond. [/quote] Incorrect. Hooker's goal was to lure Lee into battle on ground of his (meaning Hooker's) own choosing. Hooker succeeded in doing that. What doomed Hooker's Chancellorsville operat...
