    The dark side of sports, distilled to 200-proof purity.

    So are most successful football coaches. They're all high paid used car salesmen. The only one we thought had any character or morals passed away right as the world was indicting him for harboring a child molester.

    Are you backing Tulane? If so that'll count as Spanky bonus points 'cause I'm from Louisiana.

    As for your love of hockey, well, all I can is that it reminds me on an old saying:

    "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out!"

    You like hockey so you must be a violent person which makes sense since you're a mod. :D

    Help me here, what did/does Paterno's lack of character and morals have to do with Muschamp being a douchebag?

    And, look, Paterno's character was in question by quite a few people, when he failed to retire when it was pretty evident, he had been over the hill for the last 15 or 20 years.

    If there aren't any coaches in college football with morals and character, maybe we ought to just scrap the whole college sports thing and get schools back into the whole teaching thing.

    You're a troll in the worst way possible. I don't just mean in an internet sense either. I literally picture you living under a bridge. With a laptop. Writing things on advrider just to annoy people.

    A. Muschamp isn't a douchebag, and if Linzi wants him gone to get Spurrier back, then she obviously doesn't remember the era well. Spurrier was easily one of the most hated men in college sports. He went into Athens one year and put 50 points on the board just because he could. He also did exactly what Muschamp did when he left Gainesville for a better job. What does Paterno have to do with Muschamp? The point is that even the most sainted personas in college sports had serious flaws. So far, every "good guy" in college football has eventually been exposed as a sociopath. If we're going to be in business with the devil, one might as well hope we end up winning a few damn games.

    B. You're equating refusing to retire to harboring a child molester? Want to go down that road pal?

    C. Ironic how when your school starts to lose, academia should scrap athletics.

    Well, if I could live under a bridge and get an internet connection, I'd most likely do it. But currently, I full time RV and I'm in Las Vegas.

    I'm retired, and I have all day to aggravate people like you that load up the 'nets with false equivalencies.

    It also appears from your post that reading comprehension is not one of your big selling points. You equated douchebaggery with character and morals, and I'm just wondering how you got there. My contention is that you can have a lack of character and morals and not be a douchebag. Paterno was certainly lacking in C&M, but he never demonstrated douchebaggery that I am aware of.

    As for me wanting to scrap college football because Texas is on a losing streak? Please reread what I wrote a couple of times and hopefully it'll become clear to you.

    And seriously, do you drink while posting? How in the hell do you get to: "You're equating refusing to retire to harboring a child molester? Want to go down that road pal?" :huh

    Lighten up, Francis. My memory serves me just fine. You've read my complaints about Muschamp - you can dig them all up if you'd like, 'cause you're good at that. In my opinion, he's a douchebag. In my opinion, he does not "feel" like Florida football. In my opinion, the mental image of an recreational vehicle dweller in Nevada getting you all twisted up on the Interwebz is hilarious.

    Sorry.

    Tangent.

    Funny, I can remember NativeSun being shocked that I didn't worship at the feet of JoePa well before "The Scandal." He earned most of his reputation coaching an 'independent' school who would beat up on NorthWestTeacher&Agriculture College of SW Missouri.

    I took him to be a win at all costs arse. I think the vast vast majority are at that level. Respect their drive, but don't put them on pedestals.

    Guys, whether its some pseudo intellectual gypsy in an RV, or some woman complaining that the#2 team in the country doesn't 'feel' right, I think the time has come for me. I simply don't need this anymore. This is the first debate I can think of this season, and it's about whether someone is a 'douchebag'.

    In years past, I would pour over my key board and argue with you two, but I've really lost the will and the drive to keep doing this.

    Well, this pseudo intellectual gypsy is really looking forward to the LSU v TAMU game this weekend. I'm taking TAMU and the points! :freaky

    You mean other than Miami fans :dunno.

    Muschamp doesn't come off as "douchey" to me. He's a football geek and very focused on his job..that's all. I think that they're still a year away from being all there, but this season has been a pleasant surprise so far.

    He is a bit excitable :lol3
