  1. That's ridiculous. My godfather was in charge of getting cars for the RHS football program and he passed away over a year ago. Er... I mean he was ALLEGEDLY in charge.... Oh, drat.
  2. Rome wasn't built in a day. Sure the same is true of Loris. (Except for the actual town itself. That probably could be constructed/reproduced within a very short span of time.)
  3. Sadly enough (as a Hokie fan), I'm not sure that beating Tech really improves any school's cachet with individual recruits. The general profiles of recruiting classes for JMU and Old Dominion don't seem to have shifted much. LU is very much its own thing anyway, and that doesn't seem likely to change.
  4. Daryl Robertson. Nice kid. But didn't last long at Tech and wound up at Liberty University.
  5. Given the relative lack of attention that the Minutemen usually experience, that's actually quite a compliment.
  6. Brookville. Not Liberty. RHS beat Liberty in 2005 semifinals by three before losing the title game against Turner Ashby. That's the only matchup between the Blues and the Minutemen to date.
  7. Best thoughts and prayers coming from this direction as well.
  8. I think it's safe to say that very few people in that camp are voting FOR anything. A lot of people are voting against Trump, due mostly to his personal shortcomings as a human being and the behavior associated with that -- even if they identify with/benefit from his policy and political stances. Ordinarily that doesn't tip the scale in an election. But this is an extraordinary failure of the overall system. We are about to get what we deserve.....
  9. Nobody wins. Somebody will be elected. But nobody wins.
  10. For some reason your original post made me think of some dialogue from the movie Glory. "I ran away at the age of 12 and ain't ever looked back." "What you been doin' since then?" "Runnin' for President. I ain't been winnin', though."
  11. Just curious about something, 1inStripes. Did you win in 2016?
  12. I really want to vote for Jo Jorgensen, but I can't get past the fact that her running mate is a blithering idiot who can't be taken seriously. Actually thought about contacting her and the national chair of the Libertarian Party (assuming there is such a position) and saying so. I've always said that we ultimately get the government we deserve in America. But it never occurred to me that our system could produce a choice as bad as the one before us.
  13. I hope and pray that he and his wife have minimal complications and a full recovery. But beyond the obvious personal health ramifications, I have to think this puts Governor Northam in a difficult position. The most immediate questions will be whether or not he was personally diligent in following his own directives. That might be an impossible situation to manage in terms of optics any way you look at it. But if he can manage to provide a convincing answer that he did, in fact, follow all of the protocols then that leads to much more uncomfortable questions about their actual effectiveness and outcomes. Honestly not looking to pile on the guy, but my gut feeling is that this will lead to a significant swing in terms of policy directives. And ultimately the way Governor Northam personally feels (in a very literal sense) will now have unprecedented potential impact upon the daily activities of 8.5 million people. Anybody else have a sense of how this will play out?
  14. If they were an SEC school I would speculate about the existence of a big bag of cash.
  15. Indeed. But there appears to have been some discretion in those arrangements. Tazewell played a rotation of pretty much all Roanoke area schools (including some very strong Andrew Lewis teams) regularly in the mid 1960s. By comparison my alma mater pretty much stuck with playing William Fleming and Patrick Henry to meet the requirement. I think there is an argument to be made for giving credit where credit is due, but reasonable minds may differ.
