Doggone, I had the traditional color SDSU Jacks Football sweatshirt, but fobbed it off on a buddy who played DT for the school the Jacks whacked to reach the championship game—the two schools have almost identical colors. Them Jacks hunter orange hats would have suited me right nice back in the day going out for canecutters in Sweet Home with Sam Bailey, Coach Bryant’s ace defensive assistant, and a couple AuBarn infiltrator buddies from Shug Jordan’s 1957 national championship team. Canecutters being the closest Suth’n bunny to a jackrabbit, Marv—

A.K.A. swamper, swamp rabbit, marsh hare! I wish we had a team named for them. The culturally diverse peoples who pursue them should be the ones with a show on the history channel.

I have the feeling 5 through 12 will be for the perennially overrated ;).

I actually remember Sunny Sixkiller. He made the cover of Boys Life as I recall. What ever happened to him?
From Wikipedia Unselected in the 1973 NFL Draft, Sixkiller had tryouts with the Los Angeles Rams in 1973,[5] and with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League in 1974. He signed with the Philadelphia Bell of the World Football League in September 1974,[7] and played with The Hawaiians in 1975,[8] Sixkiller and several other players quit the troubled team late in the season after the players were asked to take a 20% pay cut; the entire league collapsed a week later. He tried out with the San Diego Chargers in 1976.
Sixkiller was also a cast member in the 1974 film The Longest Yard. He is currently an executive for sports marketing firm IMG College, serving his alma mater, the University of Washington.

As crackerd reminded me it's Sonny. I see him a lot on TV here as he appears to be the official greeter
for the 7 Feathers Casino out on the peninsula. Maybe he wears many hats?

Maybe a many-feathered hat, worn legally through his heritage, as plumaged by these, Marv—

Wayne, rose’s - not the roses above but Our rose - reference to No. 13 re CFB expanded playoff means 13 will never be the “unluck of the Irish.” Notre Lame is the biggest suck-up for expanding the CFB playoff field as short of a sub-.500 season their inflated rep will put them in the 12-team playoff every year and likely get them a home playoff game that will go to teams ranked No. 5 thru 8. Nos. 9-12 will play road games. Under the proposed expansion, ND will never be among the top four teams at the end of the regular season because they don’t belong to a conference and thus can’t capitalize on playing in a conference championship game and getting a higher ranking that would give them a bye for the first round of the playoffs.

MG and Wayne I think I will call it "The Harbaugh Expansion. Decision makers probably asked, "how many teams does it take to get Harbaugh in?" Answer....12.

But will being 13 this season actually be enough to finally get Harbaugh fired? What's very, very good.......can also be very, very bad!

Article this AM on the internet expects this proposal, if implemented,
to favor SEC & the PAC-12. Who would have thought the PAC-12
would be mentioned in the same sentence as the hallowed SEC?

Benefits.......SEC always gets 2 minimum......PAC12 always gets at least 1.

Both are benefits respectively;)

I scanned the CFP expansion article. That would be a lot of addition football games. I'm not for the expansion as proposed. I was happy with the Orange Bowl.

I was happy with the Rose Bowl as it was. But that isn't coming back so this is
the best solution to a poor choice that isn't changing. It will be less games than
the FCS which was finalized recently in TX.

Winning an NC as now stands means playing 15 games—need to cap it at 16 if expanded CFB comes about. Should be 11 regular season games with only non conference one game which would be the opener which is now a big money intersectional. ‘Bama 2020 and the Big 12 w/10 annually put the all-conference template in play and it should be the CFB way of the future. Of course it would mean benign neglect for the South Bend bogus-a-be’s...but they would once again find what we RCs call special dispensation.

He has dogs if all brands and colors. He has ourdoor adventures from hunting hare, pigeon and driven pheasant all the way to attending a Third Saturday. He has dined at the Bright Star, celebrities in tow. But the question of the ages is now answered!

What do we get the man who has everything for Christmas.........MG gotta have this wonder beside the dashboard hula girl!
