Selling my house so I’ve been spending all of my free time renovating and sleeping. I’m competently handy with a saw and tape measure. And paying someone that’s actually good at it will cost a man big time these days.

Completely ripped out one of the bathrooms. New subfloor, new floor, new walls ceiling, new ceiling, new ceiling fan, medicine cabinet, vanity, lights, installed an in-ceiling shower light just to show off, towel hangers, etc etc, agggghhhhh somebody shoot me! The contractor wanted $6500.00, I did it for about $2800.00 in materials, a couple of gallons of sweat, one hammered finger, a few elbow owies, and varieties of sawdust up my nose and down my neck. Oh yeah, caulking sucks and plumbing blows.

I also took a couple of weeks off down in the low country to rest my weary bones afterwards. Came home and mowed my three acres of hay fields that had hitherto been known to me as my lawn, trimmed the Triffids crowding my lighthouse, plucked the petunias, peed on the peonies, and carried my duffel bag of mail inside. Most of it to be run through the shredder. 

Now the garage is next. It was never finished on the inside so I’m going to insulate it and put up inside walls, wire new ceiling lights, put up a new ceiling, paint it inside and out, maybe even resurface the concrete floor.

Popped in a couple of times and saw nothing much going on in the off-season, so I didn’t think I’d be missed. But since Stevie boy is bleeding out the ass trying to get me to fucking say something I figured I’d better, before the anemic fuck died of blood loss.


I mean shit, Skippy hasn't said nary a word either. But nobody seems to give a shit about that.  Oh wait....  Cheesy

You have to keep an eye on those petunias o.o

Maybe Cap found something better to do with his time than trying to educate Morons
A decision that there’s no chance that you might make.....

Today is your lucky day, DickLessDriverNut, and your pet DickLeastJumboNut. AKA, JimTheRed.

From the day El Capitan returns, I'll depart Elba for 1 calendar year.

Cross my heart and hope to.....you know the rest

Perfect timing, El Capitan,  DriverNut has been driving himself more insane worrying about you.
And RisqueNut and JumboRedDicklessJim are just plain sick that you've been AWOL.

June 1 will mark my one year absence from Elba. See you in June 2019 after you have sold the new house you built and are settled in your new place.  Send out the DeeJ signal if you need any help with the local Morons.
I know you can handle them all with both hands tied behind your back.  Better end now....words like tied make DriverNut and RisquéNut start to shake!
Best of luck, Cap, Troj, JB, Yank and Banks!

It sounds like you have been productive and that's a great thing.

I would worry about Jim also if people pointed out he was "missing."  He's a nice guy in real life.

The CFB HOF ballot is out. Other than the three obvious ones - Flozell Adams, Tony Mandarich and Lorenzo White - who should get in?

I've sort of missed this sort of sharp, insightful analysis from you, Steve.

I also think Joe Thomas deserves something for putting up with the last 10 years.

And not Rashaan Salaam ?
 I can’t believe you as an MSU fan would overlook this Heisman winner’s play in AnnArbor in 1994.

Jb,

What was the general mood of the alumni after Swinney's first 3 or 4 seasons?  Most coaches would not make it past this these days it seems like...

Clemson Tigers (Atlantic Coast Conference) (2008–present)
2008 Clemson 4–3[A 1] 3–2 T–3rd (Atlantic) L Gator
2009 Clemson 9–5 6–2 1st (Atlantic) W Music City 24
2010 Clemson 6–7 4–4 T–4th (Atlantic) L Meineke Car Care

I think we were so happy to have Bowden gone everybody forgot to care.

NCCAA rule change now allows players to play in up to four games and not lose a season of eligibility.
That’s  any four games.
Players have five years to play four seasons.
However, the rule is not retroactive.

Saw this.  Not sure what this will mean or how it will shake out.   It seems at first glance like it will be more of an advantage to those teams that have quality 2nd tier players.  Teams like Michigan State should benefit for instance?   The stars are not going to be red-shirting and staying five years anyway.

Allows more players a shot in the cupcake games.
Also allows for late season injury replacements without burning elibility.
