Hambone wants to cancel me?

I'm just kidding and I was trying to be a little funny (unsuccessfully, as usual (just ask my wife (and my kids))).

If I need to delete something from my post (or the post), just tell me and I will do it.

You and me both.

Lol... nah, I just didn't want it to continue/get worse. This isn't the quad. I think the problematic comments are self-evident... and I didn't literally mean to edit your posts, sorry.

If someone wants to continue to talk about it, one of you already referenced the thread (or they can start a new one on the Quad)

Thanks guys

Congratulations to Reggie and his family!

To those of us who don't know, what is his affiliation to athletics?

The most obvious is that his daughter is on the soccer team. Beyond that, I know that the ADs office recruited him pretty hard as a fan and that he has generally been supportive as he could be as Provost. Also, he comes from Berkeley (as a student) and Ga Tech (as faculty) and he was the Faculty Athletics Rep there... and was VP of the ACC.

I understand that Berkeley and GT (and the ACC) aren't Michigan and UT (or the SEC), but they're not bad models for Rice to follow in many regards. They are decidedly better than Yale and the Ivy League.

I've oft-stated as much in regards to Ga Tech many times in the past. Not as much a fan of Berkeley, though I did like Breathed, at least aquatically.

Wonder if our new university president can enourage more games against GA Tech on the gridiron and in basketball and baseball?

edit: Rice is currently 0-2-1 against against GA Tech in football, with first meeting in 1960 and most recent in 1972. (interestingly, Rice is 1-0 all-time against Georgia Bulldogs, to go along with our 3-0 against Alabama!)

Rice is 1-1 all-time in football against Cal-Berkeley, with the two meetings in 1969 and 1970.

In Men's Hoops, Rice has met Ga Tech 15 times total so far, with a series record of 5-10 with first meeting in 1947 and most recent in 2012, a 36-54 loss in the DirecTV Classic in Aneheim, CA under Ben Braun.

Rice is currently 1-2 all-time against Cal-Berkeley with first meeting in 1974 and most recent in 2015, a 65-97 loss at Cal under Mike Rhodes.

In Women's Hoops, Rice has only played GA Tech once, a 52-54 loss in 2019 by the Rice Ladies.

The Lady Owls have played Cal only once, a 65-92 loss in 1986.

Couldn't find the all-tme records in baseball, as they don't initially appear to be available on the Owls website or in the past team fact books, but I remember we played Ga Tech on the diamond at least once in Atlanta.

And 2-0 against Auburn.

Here's a list of them all, with links to biographical info on each: https://digitalprojects.rice.edu/wrc/pre...s/provosts

Thanks, Mike. I was unaware of the position when I was a student in the 60's...or maybe just forgetful...

It's not a post that many students would have reason to encounter.

The Proctor, on the other hand... :)
