GRIFFEY IN '96 AND SPURRIER IN '05. Each day, some other blowhard figurehead announces that they are running for president. All dolts. No matter the party affiliation. What our country needs is a VISION. I was a staunch supporter of Griff in '96 for president, but I was merely 13 years old, you see.
Now that I am OF AGE and have this GBH soapbox, I'd like to announce my Super PAC for Steve Spurrier in 2016 for president of the United States of America. We need to restore some damn charm and swagger back to the White House. Genuine charm and swagger. Anyway, Rush and Chuck wrote a hypothetical that is a delight and worth your time.
SUMLIN YEAR FOUR. Shameless re-plug - I wrote some taeks on what is at staek for 2015 with the Texas A&M football program. I'm dying for football chatter, so if you'd like to weigh in, join the comments. If you start talking MLB, you will be shamed.
BY THE NUMBERS: SEC TRADISH EDISH. Our bud Khan over at ESPN takes a look at which numbers hold historical significance at each SEC school. Bet you can't guess what A&M's is.
THE NEW HATE BARN IS PRETTY ELITE. Everything is on schedule for the reopening of the revamped Kyle Field this season. If you know anything about construction, pulling off a project like this with little time and a hard deadline is pretty damn remarkable. I hope we never lose in this palace.
BEISBOL PARENTAL BONDING. Nice story here about the parents of Aggie baseballers Blake Kopetsky and Logan Nottebrok bonding over the years while their sons played for different programs and traversed the country.
