  3. Not going to the game in Raleigh today, but will definitely be listening on the radio while packing up for the beach. We are all glad we can still go to the beach after the storm. Let me find the article about good sportsmanship from Clemson. They had Coastal Carolina from Myrtle Beach come and practice in their indoor facility.

    UPDATE: Well, it wasnโ€™t an article, but just a facebook post. Anyway, they went to Furman the next day to practice. If you want to see it and are on Facebook, look up Coastal Carolina Football. There are some neat pictures.

    This just in (from the NFL): the Patriots have signed Antonio Brown.

    Talented player but surely hope it was made clear that Brady/McDaniels/Belichick run the system. I still can’t believe Randy Moss blew the greatest opportunity of his life.

    Out of the country so definitely not going to be able to watch the Ducks today. But cheering anyway!!!

    Have they started to deport Ducks’ fans, GA? Next time I go though immigration they might ask “Have you been or are you now a supporter of a Web-footed Mascot?”

    Have a safe trip!

    Yup.ย  Got a couple of FB friends who are big Fuskie fans and they were rather nasty last week after Auburn got by us – conveniently forgetting that the same happened to them last year.ย  ย They’re all quite subdued and quiet this week after the loss to Cal.ย  I’m not getting snarky on them, but I’m not exactly consoling them either. ๐Ÿ˜‰
