The plot of the movie "The Longest Yard"... when a (Colonel Sanders) southern warden uses cons to improve his football team... because he loves money, power, and football....
Isn't this the SEC?

As the "Fiddler" sings, TRADITION!

Long steeped it is in the {S}EC, emphasis on the South.

Good thread.

The warden in the original was played by Eddie Albert. Born in B1G country.
That is conclusive proof that the B1G is corrupt and racist.

Case closed.

Need some help. This thread title looks like it was written by an illiterate U.P. Hilljack ex-pat drunk on Moosehead.

Someone please edit my name to the proper spelling. And why does Bama have quote marks? That doesn't make sense. Is it not actually Bama you're hating on? Also, I prefer an Oxford comma. Finally, 'It's' is incorrect. It should be 'Its'.

A better title would be:

Hating on the SEC (but mainly Bama) and its shills.

These things matter in a thread with my name in it. I have fans and a reputation.

Bama graduation requirements include Hooked-On-Phonics. This should make osu proud as imitation is the highest form of flattery.

Not too many of the B1G folks to be honest. For them I act out my posts with interpretive dance. For the OSU folks I make a series of clicks and whistles.

Look, it was a M guy who penned the thread title and all the grammatical mistakes. Decorum prohibits me from mentioning his name (Jeff).

We try to keep it civil here. That approach tends to produce better dialogue. Most of us posting on this site don't post or engage in repartee involving personal attacks. Want to talk sass about M, fine. About other posters and on a personal level, not so fine.

I'd add that there's an occasional post that can be read as a personal attack that gets by. The world is not a perfect place. OTH, posts that are overtly stupid, wrong, misleading and not fact or evidence based deserve to be called out.

Like we've told others here who like to pile on, gentlemen engaging in a duel serve themselves and this forum best if the round whizzes by your opponent's ear instead of hitting him square between the eyes.

This explains much.

*Not a personal attack*

Hmmm...

Well, that was (to me) obviously a mild jest of a post. Not sure which part earned such a warning: hilljack? Moosehead? U.P.? Illiterate? (which is obviously a silly taunt because this is a message board you read) and, regardless, it certainly didn't carry the weight of say "dickhead" or other similar epithet. FWIW, a "hilljack" is a time-honored badge once only assigned to Tennessee fans but has become a playful taunt meaning the antithesis of urbane.

Nonetheless, feel free to mothball this thread.
