Probably furloughs. I read some other schools are doing that. I really have no clue and just typed this to see my fingers roar.

I'm still trying to figure out the o/u when Indiana has to rename their state....

1 5 yrs.?!

Add 26 more states into that mix that were named after Indian tribes or languages.By the time we add in cities and towns this will be a nightmare.

• Alabama - Alabama is the name of an Indian tribe native to the state. This tribal name may have come from the word
albina, which means "campsite" in their own language, or from the words alba amo, which mean "clearing brush."
• Alaska - Alaxsxix, which is a name from the Aleut language. This name means "place the sea crashes against."
• Arizona - Arizonac, which is a Spanish corruption of a local Indian name-- possibly the Tohono O'odham word alishonag,
which means "little spring."
• Arkansas - Acansa, which is the name of a Quapaw Indian town. Literally the name means "southern place."
• Connecticut - Quinnitukqut, which is the Mohegan Indian name for the Connecticut River. Literally the name means "long
river."
• Illinois - Illiniwek, which is the tribal name of the Illini tribe. Literally the name means "best people."
• Iowa - Ayuhwa, which is one of the tribal names of the Ioway Indian tribe. Literally the name means "sleepy ones."
• Kansas - Kansa, which is the name of the Kansa Indian tribe. Literally the name means "south" and is a shortened form of
their own tribal name for themselves, People of the South Wind.
• Kentucky - Kentake, which is an Iroquois placename meaning "meadow land."
• Massachusetts - Massachuset, which is a Wampanoag Indian name meaning "by the range of hills."
• Michigan - Mshigem or Misigami, which are the native names for Lake Michigan in the Potawatomi and Ojibwe languages.
Both names mean "great lake."
• Minnesota - Mnisota, which is the native name of the Minnesota River in the Dakota Sioux language. Literally the name
means "cloudy water."
• Mississippi - Misiziibi, which is the native name of the Mississippi River in the Ojibwe language. Ojibwe is not actually a
native language of Mississippi state-- the language is spoken near the source of the Mississippi River in Minnesota, which is where the river got its name, and the state was later named after the river. Literally the name means "great river."
• Missouri - Missouria is the name of an Indian tribe native to the state. Their tribal name came from the word mihsoori, which
means "big canoe people."
• Nebraska - Nibthaska or Nibrathka, which are the native names for the Platte River in the Omaha-Ponca and Otoe languages. Both names mean "flat river."
• New Mexico - Of course, New Mexico was named after the country of Mexico, but since Mexico itself is named after an American Indian word, the state of New Mexico is also! Mexico is a placename from the Aztec Indian language (Nahuatl.) It literally means "city of the Aztecs."
• North Dakota - Dakota, which is the tribal name of the Dakota Sioux Indians. Literally the name means "the allies."
• Ohio - Ohiyo, which is the name of the Ohio River in the Seneca Indian language. Literally the name means "it is beautiful."
• Oklahoma - Okla Homma, which means "Red Nation" in the Choctaw Indian language.
• Oregon - This was a name given by early American settlers to the Columbia River. It was probably a Native American name
which the settlers brought with them from another state, since it does not resemble names from the Native American languages of Oregon. It may have meant "beautiful river" in an eastern Algonquian language.
• South Dakota - Dakota, which is the tribal name of the Dakota Sioux Indians. Literally the name means "the allies."
• Tennessee - Tanasi, which was the name of a Cherokee Indian town in the region. Although "Tanasi" was recorded as the
Cherokee name of this town, it does not specifically mean anything in the Cherokee language (just as many English place names are not specific words.) It may have been a shortened form of a longer Cherokee word or phrase, or it may have been named after a Cherokee person.
• Texas - Taysha, which means "friend" in the Caddo Indian language.
• Utah - Ute is the name of an Indian tribe native to the state. This tribal name may have come from the word nuutsiu, which
means "the people" in their own language.
• Wisconsin - Wishkonsing, which is the Ojibwe name for the Wisconsin River. However, this word does not have a specific
meaning in the Ojibwe language, and none of the Ojibwe Indians in our organization knows any oral traditions
about where the name came from.
• Wyoming - Chwewamink, which means "by the big river flat" in the Lenape Indian tribe. The Lenape Indians never actually
lived in Wyoming-- it was originally the name of a town in Pennsylvania, and white settlers from that area
brought the name with them when they moved west.

I believe a building will be constructed and attached to the mountain. Paying customers can take stairs or an elevator to the Stone Mountain museum.  The wall of the back wall of museum that faces the park will be used to shoot the laser light show on.

I read where you and Ghost mention Fresca. I am familiar with the drink and I am old enough to remember when Fresca and Tab had cyclamates as sweeteners. Is there a new meaning for a Fresca other than the drink? It was popular in the 60s and maybe they are drinking it now during the protests? I don't know. I cannot keep up.

Ace...

It's kind of an obscure, inside joke. Some people got into it on Facebook over this same picture, and the anti-protester told the protester-type something like, "simmer down and have a Fresca." And I thought that would be the perfect drink for a protester... gets out there, and a Coke is probably way too much sugar and caffeine for those guys.

Thank you. I figured it was triggered by something goofy.

What did this conference "not" do now? I haven't been following. If our Bozo coast reporter has written something, I don't read him.

Never mind. I see he did write something. This guy's writing is waste.

#10 Re: Southern Miss » John Thompson To The Top Talk » 2020-05-15 06:42:03

He is completely out of coaching. I talked to him for a while at Shirley Bower’s funeral last year. He and his wife run a clothing store named Clothes Horse Men's Apparel,  in Alpharetta, GA. He said he enjoyed his time coaching and said he still misses working with the young players at times. He was doing well. Enjoyed the visit. It was good to see him.

This times infinity

This regional crap is riddled with poor logic. Hard to believe the number of people buying into this

Years ago the Mafia paid a visit to Marshall. We were welcomed by many of their bigger boosters to tailgate with them. One of the Marshall boosters said, "We are happy to be in C-USA but many honestly missed the MAC as the travel was easier." I was OK with his statement for Marshall but it was not how I thought about USM's future. I was never fond of Marshall joining C-USA back then.

Just rambling thoughts. It was a lot of fun while it lasted.
