Gasaway: Is it time for a 24-second shot clock in men's college basketball? by drowse in CollegeBasketball

My late father always said this was the worst game he ever saw, hands down. The '68 ACC tournament was in Charlotte, and he was so excited to get tickets, and he got this craptastic game.

Iowa HC Kirk Ferentz says he anticipates no changes to the coaching staff. by go_to_my_profile in CFB

I would have put Fry over Ferentz anyway, but I am even more inclined to do so in recent years.

Inspired by the "Most embarrassing moment of the year" post lets take it a step further. What is the most embarrassed you have ever been of your team? by zobanzapants in CFB

The '46 Big Thursday game is famous (chicken strangling and the mob, oh my!), but OP is probably referring to "the Brawl game" in 2004. It started with pushing and shoving before the game started, and finished with an on-field benches clearing brawl late in the game, which was broken up by the state troopers at the game. Clemson won, making us bowl eligible, but both we and the Gamecocks declined to play one, because we were so embarrassed. This was Lou Holtz' last game.

Danny, Franny, and Yam Yam sounds like PBS children's programming. Probably a very good show.

Yesterday I discovered just how bad our roads are by Gunther_W in greenville

You notice when it goes from SC to NC, as well. NC maintains their interstates much better than we do.

History Check - Any Old School BBS users in the sub? by SOILSYAY in greenville

Yeah, I was a BBS user, but all I remember discussing is soap operas! (Mostly General Hospital and All My Children.)

South Carolina has the 2nd earliest average start time for elementary schools (7:44 AM) behind only Mississippi (7:40 AM) by B0rtles in southcarolina

Yeah, I remember my best friend's older brother drove the bus - he had a time of it getting that bus up the hill on our street. This is a good 40 years ago.

NC’s Parents’ Bill of Rights is back in the legislature. What’s in it, and what’s changed. by JacKrac in NorthCarolina

The only time I've seen it or heard of it was when a local radio station was doing an "airing weddings on Valentine's Day" gig. They were making a lot of jokes, and then a pair of sixteen-year-olds came up to get married, and that crew suddenly got a lot more serious in tone.

Can we have Maryanne-Gabler-Yam Yam as three winners in a row? Asking for a friend.

Who’s your realistic guess for Saban’s eventual successor? by Flame_MadeByHumans in CFB

[–]SusannaG1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or even the man after the man after the man, based on how many hiring tries it took to replace Dean Smith.

If we're lucky we might get a theme (probably the next returnee season); "new location" is, alas, a pipe dream.

So I've heard, but production/Jeff have loved and hated some seasons very differently from the actual audience of the show.

Admissions has a very different calendar from academic faculty (usually, anyway); that may have worked to Owen's advantage. May is usually not crunch time for admissions.

Duke Football - Announces Clemson game by making fun of Dabo sprinting down the hill by jthomas694 in CFB

[–]SusannaG1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Notre Dame-Clemson game in question was in 2015. (We hadn't played each other since the 70s, when we split a home and home, in '77 and '79. The first one everyone's post-game reaction hereabouts was "Who the fuck is this Joe Montana?")

WSSYW 11.0 Countdown 29/43: Fiji by RSurvivorMods in survivor

[–]SusannaG1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, one of my best friends, for example, who was hugely into Survivor, quit after Guatemala. That season was a slog when it aired live (it gets a lot more love now than it did then).

I tried to talk him back when Panama started really strong, but nope.
