Nope. I expect to live long enough to enjoy an overpriced, watered-down Coke as I watch my football team play on the south side.

Looks like you're pinning your hopes on Eric Holder or a lightning bolt.

No comment.

As much as we want the OCS, there are still other things that would help improve our competitive position that are priorities and can be done with less funding. Our original hope was to include these facilities in the new OCS, but they may have to be built separately. Which of these needs has our President spoken about with encouragement?

If this fund drive works, if it really reaches its goals, then there will be money available come the day. In the meantime, finding a way to put butts in seats, increasing attendance and interest, is the key to putting the BOT in a position where it gets extremely hard to say no.

That and PBJ is going to have to retire eventually.

I'm still hoping for some Shakspearean type tragedy with a strong sense of karma. But I'm devious like that. (cue the pinhead denouncing my wish for another human's death)

& if you or I say something contrary to their venomous rants against UAB Football, then their crimson kool-aid drinking mod gods will ban you from posting there. Bunch of damn "walkers" is what they are!
