    Would someone relate the story about how Barrow left Ohio St and went to LSU. This may be the greatest "The one that got away" story in history.

    NSDTR/CH Struan's Driving Us Crazy JH WCI ("Daisy") ... the baby in charge

    A case of "Urban renewal as a screwy QB guru" accounts for the-one-that-got-away story. The better (for humanity) Burrow story is "The one who never really left."

    Still trying to piece together swami's milfoil rune for discerning 'Bama next-non-Dabo (or Debo) HC. Let's see. Losing team farther south. High-flying canvasbacks...til they weren't. Resurfacing as a pricey and all but unobtainable entree. Fomerly with the Ducks family (Zer-0-gon). ...it's coming to me, I know it...tip of my tongue...alliterative reference...come on...draw it out...YES, Peter Principle Exemplar and Continuous CFB loop of resurrection. WILLIE TAGGART Saban's heir at 'Bama! Gotta be, meant to be, fated to be, can't help but be. Williie Falling Upward Taggart, to T-town in '23! You heard it here for first, from the swami's milfoil vegetarian reading!

    Thanks for the acknowledgement Gar, but I really didn't take doc's observations as belittling (at least not in this case)

    Doc you are correct in that we hunt them primarily when we ain't got nothin' else. However your observation errs in that the hunt is very specialized in equipment, location and technique.

    You are right again though about the "accidental" part.....and here is how........i like to set up crosswinded for them as they fly low, fast and usulally in a line. When they come in either left to right or right to left, it matters not, i always pull ahead of the big, lead drake in the line. Then through a lifetime of programming and muscle memory, when i feel the distance, speed and lead are correct.....i pull the trigger on the wingmaster! Because they are in a line......i usually watch the fourth one back crumple hard. That's the accidental part/function of age!

    No sea ducks, no fish ducks, but I did have "accidental" access to a cormorant couple weeks ago for helping train my St. John's Dog pup to make her appointed retrieves. Accidental as in provided by power line "cookery."

    Latter-day St. John's Dog pup, that is, a/k/a black dog.

    Congrats to the Clempson athletes. They beat Duke in a sport that the ACc is known for.
    No cupcakes in ACC Basketball . & it is more rare than winning a NC in FB.

    C'mon MG,

    The losing team in '92......Miami!
    Not formerly a duckie......currently the head duck!

    I hope everyone saw Mario Cristobal's exuberance after the Rose Bowl win. I enjoyed him and his attitude. If i ever saw a coach enjoy a win more i couldn't say when.

    He hasn't been there long but his Duck team is getting bigger and faster. I think he will win the conference again next year. He is recruiting well with Warmack's and Thibodeau's in his trenches.(them boys aint from the northwest nor are they Duck legacies) Kids love him.

    The ducks shoulda beat the boogs and had nice wins. I liked him when he was at Alabama and like him to further prove himself at Oregon. I like him as a future tide hc, but his alma mater may need him sooner?
