Remember our Vets
In that picture, I see my generation's Gradfathers; men who spent years away from their homes in a living hell just so their grandchildren could, one day, argue over the internet about what should and shouldn't be screamed at university football games. Snark aside, the United States and the Western World as we know it today would hardly exist without the actions taken by our servicemen and -women over the last several centuries.  The title of today's post also alludes to the European counterpart of our Veterans Day: Armistice Day, a day celebrated to mark the end of the First World War.  To the two or three European Cup fans out there, happy Armistice Day.

Tennessee preparing for Ole Miss' Mr. Everything | VolQuest
Lane Kiffin and his Volunteers are starting to learn that Dexter McCluster isn't exactly something which is easy to prepare for. He's got the shiftiness of an elite NFL back and the route running skills of a solid slot receiver. He's tiny which, oftentimes, benefits him with his escapability. But, if I were Kiffykins I wouldn't worry too much; we tend not to use him when we should because our coaches still trust Jevan Snead to score points 'n' shit.

Dungy shares wisdom with Rebels | Victoria Advocate
Tony Dungy, the Super Bowl winning once-coach of the Indianapolis Colts, recently traveled to Oxford to meet and exchange words of football wisdom with our Rebel football team. He did this at the request of Houston Nutt himself. Do you think Dungy would have done that for Mullen, Petrino, or Miles? Hell no he wouldn't have, because those guys are turds ha lol.
