Pat Forde is one of the preeminent FBS football writers and columnists. Dude really knows his stuff. This piece concentrated on an extensive analysis of SEVERAL teams who would fill the 4th slot in this season’s BCS playoffs.
Pat contends there are ALREADY 3 “locks” on getting a BCS slot: the SEC Conf champion; Big 10 conf champion; and a 13-0 Clemson team winning the ACC conference champion.
Agree or disagree with Forde’s contentions?
I’ve got an issue with Big 10 and SEC champions being locks. What if one or both of those two conf champs have “two” losses. Would they STILL be a lock? Even if several Power 5 schools only have 1 loss?
That’s just for starters. Wanna know what you peeps who follow FBS football think of this^^^article.

.......uhhh, looks like someone is STILL salty about the proceedings in Bragg back on 10/20. Perhaps intervention might now be appropriate as I am detecting the initial onset of PTSD^^^.

.......uhhhh, boss, how you gonna clown on Central and Norfolk when your pups lost to a lowly Morgan team today, 22-16? WTF?!??
This was only Morgan’s second win of the entire season. Dude you sound worse than that clown in the White House, deflecting and diverting.
THIS is Aggie Pride?

And, just today, the House GOP leadership announced they were replacing one of their members on House Intel with this WHACK JOB Jim Jordan.
He knew damn well that team doctor was freaking the boys on the wrestling team, and Jordan failed to stop it.
Let’s see how loud that mofo gets now in defense of the scumbag Trump.

Ok.......dispensing with my sarcasm, yours is a very legitimate question.
I will defer to soflo because he is MUCH MORE tied to the current administration than am I, but I think it has something to do with having the infrastructure to support the increasing student body population.
You can’t, for example, widen the acceptance rates, and not have sufficient housing, classrooms, and faculty staff. That was beginning to create a problem on our yard, and I hope the same doesn’t happen to A&T.

Ok.........I’ll recognize the “white flag”.
And, like Gen. Grant was to Gen. Lee, I’ll show some grace, class, mercy and magnanimity, and let you retreat with your dignity intact.
Blessings on your day, Big homie. 😊

........bruh, this incident DOES involve more than just wearing a baseball cap. Had you read the article that YOU posted, you would know of the allegations in this boy’s lawsuit that the dean was trying to “bait” him because of other “issues”. And you would ALSO know that the boy alleges in his lawsuit he wears a cap because of “dermatological” reasons.
There is ONE poster on this board who is notorious for posting articles without having a CLUE about what he posted. You’re not going down THAT path, are you, Alum?
Alum, this may be a good time to kindly divert your attention to the thread you started on the Sports page about these young ballers’ hairstyles.
I have posted my response to your latest shot at me.

ADDENDUM to last post^^^:
Alum, wassup with you telling peeps in YOUR last post^^^that you were cracking up at your own words? Board, please forgive the street vernacular, but iz dis nucca
losing it or what? Who the “f” on this board will admit to the reader that they are laughing at their own words?
Do we need to initiate a “wellness” check on this mofo?
« on: November 07, 2019, 03:52:27 PM »
^^^man, I ain’t thinking about dude.
That mofo talking all that shyt cuz his Bungles
are STILL winless, the lousiest team in the NFL. And I don’t wanna hear all that bullshyt about you’re a fan of some other NFL club. The local team’s ineptness falls on EVERYBODY in the Greater Cincy area. Dem mofos winning percentage is .000. Wtf is THAT?!?!
And stop f’ing with these young bruthas and the way they style their hair. You probably jealous cuz Momma and Daddy Alum didn’t let you walk out of the house looking crazy. So now you releasing all of that pent up frustration on these young boys..
And I’ve already told you your “take down” of Wiregrass^^^wasn’t cool. Telling that boy to sit down. Pick on somebody your own size. I ain’t Wiregrass m’fer. Don’t come for me. If you need any confirmation of my “work,” find that FAMU/NCAT thread. My boy, soflo, and I had to put those pups back in their kennels after they got neutered in Bragg Stadium in 10/20. You don’t want none of this alum.
So here’s what you need to do. March downstairs to that fine cellar of yours. Find a bottle of one of your favorite vinos that you’ve been preserving for times you need to de-stress, relax yourself, and stop f’ing with people.
And if you’re hungry, resist the urge to prepare a bowl of some of that nasty a.z.z chili Cincy is known for. I want you to relax not get sick.

^^^yeah, I know it, that’s why I referenced the arena’s name in my previous post^^^^.
And the person for whom that arena is named is problematic as well. Adolph Rupp was a rabid racist and bigot. Can’t think of the coach who succeeded him, but even that guy went on record stating Rupp had an EXTREME aversion to recruiting negro ballers to play for Kentucky.
This whole damn country ABOUNDS with symbolisms of hatred and white supremacy. 👎

^^^yeah, they did, Alum. Lamar is CONSTANTLY described by media all across Rocky Top as some kind of “moderate” Republican. Not sure what that means, but I guess it can be analogized to some peckerwood who might not be among the crowd dragging an innocent brutha out of jail and stringing him up from a tree.
Lamar would simply say that wasn’t “nice,” then not do a damn thing about it. He expressed some “disapproval” about Trump’s conduct in the Ukraine matter, but says dude’s BLATANT abuse of power does not rise to impeachable conduct.
Notwithstanding his resume, Lamar ain’t NOTHING but your average, garden-variety, White boy peckerwood from East Tennessee.
Man, “F” Lamar.

^^^at the way Ken just eviscerated y. Told dude he was the product of a “broken prophylactic”. Man, that’s f’ed up.
As for Rand Paul, that dude is nothing but garbage. Appearing on stage Monday nite at Rupp Arena with that scumbag from the Oval Office, openly advocating that the Ukraine whistleblower be “outed”. And knowing FULL WELL if that person WAS outed, he/she and their families lives would be in danger.
What a disgusting weasel.
What needs to happen now is to find that neighbor in Bowling Green who got into that property dispute with Rand a year or so ago. Man, Rand got his A.Z.Z KICKED, broken ribs, black eye, etc. Rand was f’ed up so badly he had to be hospitalized. And I don’t think the neighbor was ever prosecuted for anything.
Don’t know who is more reprehensible- Rand Paul or Mitch McConnell. Why do the good, fine Christian white people in the Bluegrass keep sending these CREEPS to Washington?

^^^I think what TigerFan just stated is an appropriate point for your humble poster to chime in again.
Yes, the hairstyle in question looks absurd and extreme. If the young bruh was my son, I would attempt to engage him about what kind of image he wished to project. Or what kind of “statement” he wished to express with that hairstyle.
But I would urge caution with a “blanket” indictment of these young bruthas for rocking what we might perceive as ridiculous hairstyles. Many, as TigerFan suggests^^^ARE highly smart and intelligent. So wearing their hair and/or clothes a certain way is likely a conscious rejection of societal norms. And those of who are black men and are now FIRMLY entrenched in the salad days of our lives, can remember when we bucked “convention”. And we have fought many a battle seeking respect and acceptance in a society that STILL has a tough time according that to black men, no matter our age or WHAT we look like.
Finally, those of us, say, over 55, will remember the 70’s when bruthas rocked the Afro. THAT was considered “extreme” at the time, as it was a VERY VISIBLE manifestation of pride in being a black man in this country. And you also must remember that to get the big, fluffy ‘fro - something I was NEVER successful at doing
- you had to first get your hair braided.
I remember one instance in the mid-70’s, when your humble poster was around junior-senior year in high school, I went to school with my hair braided. My younger sister hooked me up with the braids. Well there were two problems with that - one, braided hair on boys was considered even more extreme than the Afro; and, two, my parents forbade it.
So I left home for school after BOTH of my parents left the house for work. My mother was a classroom teacher at the time, but at another HS. By the end of the day, no less than FIVE teachers called my mother to report I showed up at school with my hair braided. So WHAT, one may ask. Well, “respectable” negro high school boys like Mrs. Strike’s son, just didn’t show up to school looking like that.
It was the first and ONLY time I did that.
Let’s cut these young bruhs some slack.

........uhhhh, for those of us who don’t have a CLUE about what you boys are talking about, would someone please post some pics? I’m sure I’ll have a more substantive comment then.
And, Alum, I’m gonna need you to stop being so mean, Big homie. Your rebuke to Wiregrass wasn’t cool bruh. But it WAS
Btw, I thought you resided in Cincinnati. Last I heard that STILL is geographically situated in the Midwest. I thought folks in the Midwest are supposed to be decent and kind. But I can understand the “confusion” that you and other residents of Cincy have with the damn airport being located across the Ohio River in Northern Ky, and the strong Appalachian influence in the area.
Oh, well, get it together, Alum.

........Nick’s gonna get that boy f’ed up, ruining a potential NFL career.
That boy likely ain’t quite FULLY ready to go.
