re: The Darwin Award winners: The University of Alabama - iglass
If you really believe that college students EVERYWHERE are not doing the same, then maybe you should be on the Darwin list yourself. The only reason this is of importance at all is that the media is all in on emphasizing any current crisis detail they can grasp. Period. In the overall scheme of...

re: Bama fans - Does Mac Jones keep his job all year or do you expect Young to take over? - iglass
[quote]This is why I wonder if him getting a lot of PT this year is not the best option. We have the most experienced and talented OL we’ve had since 2012, great RB and WR. With all of that experience we should be able to minimize any turnovers he makes within reason. Mac will do fine as a starter b...

re: Dabo will do anything to be hip with the kids. - iglass
To be fair, recruits love him. He is a parent closing KILLER when it comes to recruiting. A buddy of mine is a former Bama player. His two boys ended up walking on at Clemson, which is not a cheap school by any means. They liked Swinney that much....

re: Why did we quit going to the moon - iglass
[quote]PrattvilleTiger How long would it take a space shuttle to travel to Mars?[/quote] Forever and a day, because that ain't happening. There are no more shuttles and many companies who made parts are long since gone. The biggest logistics problem with a trip to Mars is not only the fuel, ...

I love the logo for this team, scheduled to restart their football program at the Div II level as an independent. The Erskine Flying Fleet in Due West, South Carolina: [img]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/06/Erskine_Flying_Fleet_athletic_logo.png[/img]...

re: Why did we quit going to the moon - iglass
As a NASA contractor, the answer is easy. We went to the moon the first time BECAUSE WE COULD. And in a related reason, because we needed to beat the Russians there. Now that we have been there, we already know that... there's not much there. At all. Certainly nothing for economic reasons, and...

re: Anyone been to all 14 stadiums - iglass
Alabama - Bryant-Denny many times. Amenities are top notch. Fans are usually fairly mild, could be a lot better. Loudest game I ever saw there was 2005 Florida. LSU - Death Valley. Was there for the tie game in the 80's. NOBODY left that game happy. Maybe the loudest stadium I have been in,...

re: Record vs Final AP Top 10 teams over the last 20 years - iglass
This is an interesting list, but I tend to think that it is of limited value without context. Sorry for the length of this reply, skip ahead to the end if you like. I'll use Bama as an example. I'm sure there will be heat given, but it's the example I know and the current SEC team most easily u...

re: What is your school's most recent 40-point loss in football? - iglass
[quote]There's been 24 conference games that ended in 40-point beatdowns since the 2012 expansion... Alabama owns 10 of them.[/quote] The sad part about this is... that Saban generally doesn't run the score up on anybody. Comfortable leads, yes, but he often calls off the dogs. I think he tries ...

re: Post your favorite minor movie characters of all time - iglass
Hannibal Lector in "Manhunter" and "Silence of the Lambs" had a combined total of something near only 25 minutes of screen time over two movies - about only 1/10th the screen time for a nominated character. Brian Cox played his character in Manhunter, Anthony Hopkins in "Silence of the Lambs". a...

re: LSU ended CFB as “we all know it” - iglass
[quote]You never had the ball with the chance to tie or lead in the second half[/quote] It was very close, though. LSU made a running first down with about a minute left to seal the game. One simply had the feeling that it was going to come down to the end. And it did. Not the final play, of...

[quote]A few things stick out from those numbers: [/quote] What sticks out to me are... 1. Saban and Swinney are TREMENDOUS recruiters. No surprise there. But some of the others are better than expected. Alabama is doing really really well... Saban can tell top HS talent that if you come...

re: Wages out of College per SEC Schools: - iglass
[quote]Very true, and after a few years in the work force, where you went to school is largely irrelevant. Your work is what matters. Where you went to school can get your foot into the door, but it's all on you thereafter. [/quote] Absolutely. And to be fair about it... there are tons of people...

re: Wages out of College per SEC Schools: - iglass
GT Tiger's list is a lot more up to date, yours is five years old. Nonetheless, I doubt Alabama will ever be near the top. One of the missions of our university is to provide comprehensive majors that is a bit more broad spectrum than many others. For example - Auburn is known for putting out...

re: Top 6 Grossing SEC Schools per Capita: - iglass
Not enough information. Per capita of the state? Student population? Stadium attendance? Because frankly, this list makes no sense whatsoever except for Vandy which has a very small school size relative to the rest of the SEC. But if that is a criteria, what is TA&M doing near the top? Lot...
