    I was kinda hoping you'd make a 'stand on principle' somewhere in there, but I have no way of knowing your circumstances. I have always been able to appeal to a higher authority (as opposed to my...

    That's close - Bubka had up to a 4' push-off (given that the box is sunk 8" into the ground), while 3' would have been stellar for Pennel, Seagren & Co.
    Bubka (and LoJo?) were the fastest vaulters....

    The current breathless scandal in state is that the new University of Florida President will get [gasp!] over $1,000,000 in salary and close to $2,000,000 in total compensation and perks. Should I...

    What does that say about you both as a teacher and as an independent thinker? Why would you continue to be part of such a travesty? In my 20 years in the Navy, there were plenty of 'short-cuts'...

    I didn't mean you you; I meant one you.
    MY team is Stanford. While my kids went to FSU, and the Noles are certainly a home-state favorite, I consider myself a fair-weather fan. When UF was hot, I...

    That a foul is 'obvious' is a concept MOST people can wrap their brain around. The problem arises when you have an 'agenda' and then even the obvious is opaque to you.

    Yes, but most rational, open-minded fans understand that the ref HAD to make that call in that situation, because it was obviously a pick, and that's against the rules. Offensive linemen 'hold' all...

    Size of pit matters, but I've never heard of anyone getting hurt because of the 'quality' of the pit. Side buns (alongside the box) and a deeper, wider surface is always better. Video does help (esp...

    Restated - MOST intelligent, knowledgeable fans understand that what the ND receivers did to 'pick' the FSU DBs, was specially against the rules.

    Ixnay. Poles vary in length from 10 to 17+ feet. They are priced by length not stiffness.

    Seagren was probably the most naturally gifted vaulter ever, which is saying a LOT since Warmerdam was a freak too. Bubka had the benefit of a great coach and great training, while Seagren was...

    The crux of the "PV problem" is simple availability of the 'proper' pole for an athlete. I am very lucky and have 35 poles in my (school) shed, so everyone gets to be on a pole that helps them. Many...

    Which is why I never felt like FSU was going to lose (as close as it was!). Jameis was stinkling it up in the first half, but in the second half the ND D gave him TOO much respect and he picked their...

    I'm just the opposite. I got the shot so I can stay in denial that there's ever anything wrong with me. If I have to see a doctor, I WILL get sick.

    Yes, the FSU DBs lucked out, but the offensive PI wass very real and easy to call (even though they sometimes choose not to call it). It was a game-changer, so they HAD to call it.

    Not sure, but I think you're confusing AIDS with HIV. AIDS is VERY contagious, HIV, less so.
