All this football talk makes it feel like autumn in here. :)

I grew up with the University of Michigan/Ohio State rivalry, although growing up I never really knew anyone who'd been to college, nor did I watch football. It pretty much came down to the fact that I lived in Michigan, even though I was born in Ohio, so I went with the blue and gold.

Now I live with the UT/A&M rivalry, and big time. My sister-in-law went to A&M, and her parents fell in love with the place. They are huge Aggies, though neither of them went to school there. They are season ticket holders. Their house is full of A&M stuff. Their cars are maroon. Their loyalty is fierce. I think if one of my kids goes to University of Texas, they will be disowned.



How was that?


For clarification upon reading my post, I meant NO disrespect for the coach I referenced but merely intended to comment on the upset of a great team.



these rivalries are something that us californians can't understand. sure, we have UCLA vs. USC, Cal vs. Stanford (Go Bears!), but the battles on the gridiron remain there.

The only thing we would duke out was who had the better tailgate fare: those Stanford fans were always out there with their Chardonnay and chicken liver pate and brie (with real china and flowers on ted checked tablecloths), while us Cal fans stuck to the basics: beer and polish sausage on paper plates.


That's right Wendy!! You go girl!!!



Yeah, yeah, yeah, all that's real cool BUT it takes a special kinda team to be so bad and STILL manage to get someone fired. That's right....Mississippi State WINS!

I've been ringing my cowbell with pride all weekend. Go DAWGS! (sorry for the off topic comment.....maybe)

Well isn't that sad! The University of Kentucky football team has something in common with Georgia Tech and The University of Alabama; UK was at different times coached by Bear Bryant and Bill Curry. The sad thing about that is that although we've had good coaches, we still stink in football! At least in Kentucky we have the basketball season to look forward to starting soon.


Well I have to say that SEC football is more exciting to watch than ACC....

But I bleed Carolina Blue so I admire Mark's dedication to the ACC :)

Although I have been taught to cry ROLL TIDE!!! by Ali....LOL!!!


*LOL!* So now it's pit band member against band member? As long as Tai doesn't ref it, duke it out! (Joking yesly much here.) Sounds like good old college rivalry to me. (U.W. Huskies? Oh yeah! WSU Cougars? Don't go there!)

Nice description of the Alabama guy hitting the GA guy... Quite descriptive. ;)


Being from Birmingham now of Savannah it's a tough one. Growing up in elementary school we always had the annual Auburn/Alabama Day where students yelled for there favorite team. Now being from GA. a lot of my friends went to Georgia Tech. It's hard to break from my roots of the Crimson Tide, but now it's not so bad because... GEORGIA SOUTHERN IS BACK!!


I think this is the end of Third Day as we know it. So who will leave the band? ;)

I do have to say though, that this part of the article was disgusting:
"Late in the game an Alabama player ripped an elbow into the face of one of our players with such force that he dropped like a lead pellet. His cheekbone was shattered and several teeth snapped off."

As a girl, all I can say is EWW.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
