Nope. Been done. Wake Forest played near a forest in Wake County, North Carolina until 1946. They up and moved the whole college to Winston Salem. They were Wake Forest in 1945 and Wake Forest in 1946. Records and accomplishments pre-1946 still apply.


Cool story....never heard that. Makes me wonder, now: Conway isn't in Conway County, Hot Springs isn't in Hot Springs County, Searcy isn't in Searcy County, Benton isn't in Benton County, etc.

Carnoustie (Championship Course) wasn't "car-nasty" the last few days, it was "car-nicety."  The lack of wind and also the huge rollouts due to the dry summer which decreased the length of the course made it easier for the PGA Pros.

With that said, Woods wasn't predominately doing the stinger type shots at Carnoustie that he did at Hoylake.

Hoylake is garbage, and Woods is at the point in his career where he probably won't be winning at a course like Carnoustie.

Wouldn't be surprising if Woods is not able to replicate his past success at Firestone (South Course) next week.
My point was this, one cannot predict the weather at a British Open. You were trying to predict what the golf course would look and play like back in early June. Just admit you were wrong instead of trying to hang on to some "well IF this then THAT" excuse. Only when Woods was getting gradually behind (6 strokes after two days) did he pull his driver on a fairly consistent basis. Woods usually hits his driver well when there are no trees lining the fairway. Splinters tend to get in his eye while seeing all that wood. Let me qualify this, nothing used to bother Woods in his hay-day, but this is not 2002, it is some 16 years later with 2, 3 back surgeries.  I admire the guy for the quality of golf he played this past weekend. But unlike putting a rebuilt engine in your '67 Mustang which enhances performance for quite some time, back surgery or surgeries on a human have a tendency to peak and quickly deteriorate. Good luck with your drive to 19 Majors but it will never happen, ever.  Jack will forever be the greatest. But hey, second in line, although being the first loser, is still dammed good. I sincerely mean that.

Rockies - Bubba Carpenter

Maybe Spanberger if he stays in their system and moves up.

If this isn't the "worst" best, i will be shocked. He had the definition of a cup of coffee with the Rockies.

I think football has something where an athlete gets a “long term” injury, the school can apply where the athlete loses all eligibility (in every sport)   but the school can keep paying the scholarship, but they get the scholarship count back to apply elsewhere.  Does baseball have something like that?  (I was thinking about McKinney)

I remember hearing about the football thing many years ago and Alabama had by far and away more players with this status.
Maybe talking about a medical hardship? Typically baseball injuries aren’t career ending at the college level. Numerous shoulder or Tommy John types probably don’t fit along the lines of too many concussions or severe career ending types like what occurred with Rawleigh.

College baseball injuries or lack of availability eat up potential scholarship money. Most importantly with limited spots (27/35) and a set number on the total roster, you need healthy players to compete. Isn’t an available pool of players to call up to replace injured players especially pitchers.

I would much rather Thomas go to Memphis than Ole Piss... At least we won’t be seeing him on a yearly basis...  Parts of Memphis are really nice, great healthcare facilities all over, and it’s not in Mississippi...


 N. Mississippi > Memphis....

It's said that Morris is a disciple of Gus you know.

Not a thing wrong with that. That will make Coach Morris very much more interesting.

For me one of the questions as mentioned above has to do with the quarterback. That is, will Coach Morris really, really put the best quarterback on the field? Or, will he be strapped with the status quo as has been the case several times in the past. Darn it, put the best man on the field irregardless of whether he has any seniority.  A lot of the really good coaches will do this year after year.

This...what kind of a shot does a kid like Daulton Hyatt have? How will reps be divided in order to give each QB a chance to showcase what they're capable of?
