You can't spell "USM IS COMPLACENT" without "CUSA."

Ultimately the AAC has no real life outside of being an ad hoc grouping of schools. It's basically CUSA 1.0. The Big XII is still a brand, and is probably still a pretty tremendous basketball conference. They'll poach the AAC.

Does anyone at USM really care about being in a conference, outside of the administration? I want to see independence tried. I'm not following Sun Belt football, ever.

It's not just Buckhead. There have been three shootings in the Perimeter Mall area just in the last 8-10 months.

I used to feel really safe in that neighborhood. Not really worth paying extra to live there anymore, when you can get the same basic real life gun range experience pretty much anywhere.

I always thought the Atlanta WNBA team should be named the East Point Gold Diggers. People could really relate to that, you know what I'm sayin'?

C-USA re-branding. Current name is too nationalistic and triggers colonialized peoples in a problematically problematical way.

I have a hard time imagining Boise State in the Pac-12. Outside of football, that's just a smaller school with a much less ambitious mission, endowment, etc. compared to the Pac-12 schools. SDSU is a little closer, and fits well geographically, but there's still a pretty big gap between Cal State-Anywhere and the schools in the Pac-12.

Of course, these are very strange times...

I do vaguely remember the OK State thing. Can't remember if it was something their legislature passed, or just a bill, or something that their college board came up with.

So sick of the whole conference thing.

I got the Pfizer vaccine, even though I'm generally skeptical of all that creepy, hastily-developed, Nurse Ratchet crap. Didn't hurt or make me feel sick or anything. I'm not going to line up semi-annually or even annually for some kind of ridiculous booster shot, though.

This has pretty much always been my approach to it. I got inoculated as a kid, and I've had tetanus boosters after a puncture wound, but I'm not just going to line up for some shot-du-jour just because Fauci or some other miscellaneous self-proclaimed do-gooder tells me to.

Seems pretty ominous. Could lead to lesser conferences folding, or having to merge to survive. Would definitely render the NCAA even more irrelevant.

Prediction if it happens:

Big XII + "best of the AAC" = new G5 conference

Remnants of the AAC destroy C-DOA once and for all.

USM to the Sun Belt. Tractor Supply Co. locations throughout the Foxworth-Oloh Metroplex erupt in celebration. Area Dollar Generals experience severe shortages of Postum and mediocrity.

Nick Suss elected Deputy Commissioner of the Missouri Valley Conference. Babies maul pit bulls.  Seminary Huddle House thoroughly trashed.

Good for Suss for pushing back a little bit instead of apologizing.

Many, many coaches get called by their first names in press conferences. Maybe all of them do.

Maybe people will come out to M.M. Roberts just to thumb their noses at China Jose. Or maybe they'll just appreciate the value of getting a few thousand people together in the blistering sun, after being in the bubble for a year and a half. Turn off the Roku, get outside, and let the dog void his bowels. That's what iT's all abouT.

I know I'm nit pickin, but if Stanley and Powell were good to go why wouldn't they start the game and THEN throw Joe Staff?

I wondered the same thing. A couple of us talked about it at the end of the game 4 thread. Berry / Ostrander didn't have to get all weird with the pitching today.

It seems like they have this ulterior motive of discovering / developing pitching talent sometimes. In their defense, it is kind of fun to watch.

Trimble's homer makes it a little more respectable. 10-5 OM.

Honestly this second rain delay is OK with me. Time to regroup.
