What's wrong with lil Tulane making a few bucks on some tees while poking fun at the P5? I'm sure if anyone's feelings are hurt, their tears can be wiped with $100 bills.

I thought they were poking fun at UCF, not the P5.
Doesn't matter to me, my SEC fan friends are taking it all as a personal affront.

Are all programs going to go back and claim everything?

Personally, I'd go with '66, 11-0, defending NC, began season as #1, won the bowl game where #1 and #2 didn't even play.

We're just trolling at this point. Nobody at Tulane takes it seriously.

It's what happens when millennials come of age. They all want a trophy, and even worse believe they deserve it!

It's called a sense of humor. Most of these national championship t-shirts (one is going around for Arizona State '75, too) are being done tongue-in-cheek. Not everything is about how much millennials supposedly suck.

Well now, when they quit jaywalking in front of my vehicle in traffic with their ears plugged while they look at their latest electronic device, when they learn not to say they've got the instructions at work only to obviously screw up by not following them, and when they own up to said screw up instead of blaming someone else, and when they learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide without using a handheld device, and when they learn basic social skills and social mores like not breaking through a funeral procession because they are oblivious to what is happening on the road around them, and when they learn how to spell, or better yet pick up the Webster's on their desk to check that spelling, and when they quit misusing idioms that they've heard but fail to understand their context, and when they quit playing victim, then maybe, just maybe, they'll quit being the butt of my jokes. It's called humor! But then they are too sensitive to laugh at themselves, and too stupid to know when it's old man humor laughing at them. But then I pass oodles of them on the sidewalk every day and smile and say hello to watch them bury their face in their electronic devices to keep from having to be social, so maybe I expect too much here in this college town where pretty much everyone is civil except the millennials.

I got the t-shirt thing in the first few posts.

By the way I have two feelings about this age group, bewilderment at just how poor their social skills are, and pity. It's so bad in Japan that the government is sponsoring meet & greets in hopes that they will learn social skills, marry, and produce little taxpayers. It's turning into quite a topic for sociologists.

That's a quality rant right there. I get it that people in their 20's and teens have some poor social skills that you talked about. I work with some of them and have noticed. That being said, a lot of them are wonderful people. They work in healthcare and do a damn good job of taking care of people on some of the darkest, sickest days of their lives. I'm not going to bash an entire generation of people knowing the good so many of them do just because of some of their shortcomings. FTR, I'm caught in the middle between Gen X and millennial. Too young to remember a time without a computer in the house, even though early on it was a black screen with green letters; too old to identify with a world where boys didn't have to call girl's parents, get to know them and win approval to speak to said girl so I could be told "no, let's just be friends," as opposed to that weak Snapchat crap where kids don't learn how to socialize. So I get it: they are in many ways socially stunted sometimes. Anyway, millennials have their problems, but some day one may be taking care of you, or me.

(Another question that's worth asking every older generation who criticizes the younger one: what were the adults in their lives doing that allowed them to become this way before they became teens and young adults? As a parent, I know I have as a big a responsibility into what my kids turn out to be as anyone ever will.)

The trouble is that it wasn't millennials who are pushing the t shirt thing in the first place. It was Scott Frost, who's in his 40's and a Gen-Xer, and his school president who declared themselves national champions. The Tulane shirts were done, as far as I can tell, just a joke, not really a case of "everyone gets a trophy."

The Tulane shirts were done, as far as I can tell, just a joke, not really a case of "everyone gets a trophy."

Bolded part #1: I've worked around health care for over 20 years. I can tell you that their poor reading skills have led to improper medications. Their failure to adhere to details (washing hands, masking and gloving) have infected neutropenic patients and their failures to write shift change notes about patient care have led to a variety of miscues some minor and some major. I can also state that my wife and I, who will be facing that health care soon, and already have to some extent, have learned that we have to follow up for them to keep from becoming a statistic. So in short it scares the hell out of us!

Some are thorough and skilled and have a good presence in the room, but they are the exception in our area.

#2: Whose fault is it? I blame a public education system that suspended the teaching of logic, ceased the problem solving, and essay, sections of standardized tests, and permitted the youngest grades to use calculators and computers for basic math skills, and which quit teaching cursive writing, the diagramming of the parts of speech, and which permits the usage of slang and inappropriate abbreviations in official reports.

And who do I blame for that? My generation for being so busy with business that they let the school system become the director of their children's education. Monitor what your kids are learning so you can teach them the things the school system does not. Reasoning and problem solving are now distinctions that separate higher salaried positions from common ones, but only in efficient companies.

To give you an idea of how old I am my math skills were only assisted by the use of a slide rule. It was a huge day when Texas Instruments released the TI63 with sine, cosine, and tangent features.

#3: And finally "everyone gets a trophy" was my humor aimed mostly at generation X when that nonsense began, but it has continued so it is applicable to millennials as well.

Best of luck in this crazy world. I only hope to live long enough to help my grandchildren with the things I should have been at home to help my children with.
