  • Speaking of Clemson, they're doing on-line only until at least Sept 21. What that do for Dabo?

    NCAA President Mark Emmert has said that he does not envision a scenario where sports will unfold this fall if all students are not on campus.
    “All of the Division I commissioners and every president that I’ve talked to is in clear agreement: If you don’t have students on campus, you don’t have student-athletes on campus,” Emmert said on May 9. “That doesn’t mean it has to be up and running in the full normal model, but you’ve got to treat the health and well-being of the athletes at least as much as the regular students. So if a school doesn’t reopen, then they’re not going to be playing sports. It’s really that simple.”

    • I must say that Emory & Henry College in Virginia considering changes their school mascot which is a wasp because it might be confused with White Anglo-Saxon Protestants seems to me to belong in the Onion rather than reality. I hope the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets do not follow their lead.

              No. I'm sure someone would uncover something in my past that would prevent that.

                I guess my (non-existent) statue has to be pulled down. bad hammy is sad to report that he has KKK on both sides of the family, not that I had much to do about that. The longtime-known, loud and proud folks on my mom's side from OK are a given. More recently the long-unsung Women of the KKK from my dad's side, from the Finger-Lakes region of NY, had their day in the documented sun; could their men be far behind?

                    • Actually, I would recommend Roncalli Renegades. It has all the hubris of Rebels without the taint.
                      Rumbuckets would be my 2nd choice (no, just kidding).

                            I thought we whooped them Royals back in the Battle of 1812! I guess now Richland will become a staple of the supermarket tabloids.........

                            • How about this -

                              Da Doo Roncalli Ron Rons - it'll be catchy anyway

                              • Since the school was presumably named for Pope John XXIII (formerly Cardinal Roncalli), the Roncalli Cardinals might be a good name--or would that be considered sacrilegious?
