it's not - I just wanted to watch all y'all freak out   :-"

I wasn't bitching AT you. I was just bitching in general.

As much as the media loves to parade around tolerance and diversity and equality, they LOVE to point out when someone is the "first" of any racial or sexuality category (bonus points for both, dammit!). The irony pisses me off to no end.

NC State is the dark horse pick in the ACC to make some noise and do some damage.

The rule on NC State is to set the line at 8-1/2 wins
Whatever way the national media goes, you go the other way


Last year, they should've beat Clemson (f'n kicker), and FSU (d'back dropped an INT in his hands in the end zone w/ under 40 seconds left and FSU had no timeouts)

Kudos to Dabo (an Alabama alum I might add).  All he has to do now is win four more National Championships to tie Nick.  Gives him some incentive not to rest on his laurels.

I already have commitments for two other leagues.  Bison usually runs baseball and football, but, he has his hands full with personal stuff.  You wanna run the league?
