The NCAA uses APR to measure eligibility and progress toward a degree. A 925 RPI predicts a 50 percent graduation rate.Another way of looking at UT’s numbers: The multiyear score of 924 is the equivalent of four losing seasons in the past five years, and the single-year score of 909 is like a 1-7 record in the SEC.
In other words, the Vols have been as bad in the classroom as they have on the field. No wonder they couldn’t get the right number of players in the huddle. They couldn’t count to 11.
When the SEC and Big XII announced that they would be partnering up to create their own new “Champions Bowl,” it marked a new day in the history of college football’s bowl system. A good day for conferences and schools. A bad day for bowl games.In January an 11-1 Florida team was invited to New Orleans to play Louisville. The Gators appeared no more excited about facing the Cardinals than their fans did about watching that game. Louisville won the contest. Few UF fans showed up in the Superdome to witness it.Florida sold fewer than 7,000 of the 17,500 tickets that were allotted to the school. “Allotted” is an interesting word when it comes to bowl talk. While it sounds like a gift of some sort, the reality is that Florida was on the hook to buy each of those 17,500 tickets. Meaning the school had to eat about 10,000 tickets. And that played a large role in Florida losing $840,000 for its trip to last season’s Sugar Bowl.
Once the new SEC/Big XII co-owned Sugar Bowl launches after next season, the leagues will have a working model to represent their vision a new conference-bowl relationship. That will give the biggest conferences even more leverage over the bowls and — if the game’s a money-maker — even more incentive to rejigger the entire college football bowl system.
John Leslie “Wes” Montgomery (March 6, 1923 – June 15, 1968) was anAmericanjazz guitarist .Montgomery was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. According to NPRJazz Profiles ”The Life and Music Of Wes Montgomery,” the nickname “Wes” was a child’s abbreviation of his middle name, Leslie. He came from a musical family; his brothers, Monk (string bass and electric bass) and Buddy(vibraphone and piano), were jazz performers. The brothers released a number of albums together as the Montgomery Brothers. Although he was not skilled at reading music, he could learn complex melodies and riffs by ear. Montgomery started learning the six string guitar at the relatively late age of 20 by listening to and learning the recordings of his idol, guitarist Charlie Christian, however he had played a four string tenor guitar since age twelve.
Greetings from Minagua, Nicaragua DAWG fans. My oldest son will be tying the knot in a little over 4 hours from now. After 8 years in the USMC including 2 tours of Iraq and 4 years as an Embassy Guard, he has decided to marry a beautiful Nicaraguan girl and settle down. I just hope his mom does not mimic the gal in the red dress above in about 7 hours. If she does I know what video we will play on the plane ride back to the States (LOL).
The guy with the bullet ant is a " little light in the loafers". I've been stung while in CR in the Guantacaste region outside of the town of Liberia. The dry rain forest. We were running after an ant eater trying to get a picture of it. I sat down at he foot of tree. Not a good idea. They bite you and then sting you. Yes it hurts like heck. I got stung by a spider wasp while fishing a creek in Woodward, Oklahoma when I was a kid, This was during a family vacay to visit grandparents. Personally I'd rather face the ant. Just sayin'
