Try code "belly dive" at least three times in a row. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.

OK, dungeonjoe, I got a true chuckle out of that. Gomocs, not sure. There are always open seats, unfortunately, and I think we are fairly kind to our visitors. Parking at our place is the best I know of at any stadium. Walk around and say hello. It's homecoming and there should be a decent crowd. Wofford recognizes excellence, and Chattanooga has rebuilt a program with both Coach Huseman and QB Huseman. By the way, what happened to the kid who was such a good Q'B as a freshman and then was replaced by the son? I remember he was very talented.

Terrell Robinson, SoCon Freshman Offensive Player of the Year you speak of. Honestly, he reminds us of the Nuke LaLoosh character in Bull Durham, having a million dollar arm and a five cent head. He had NFL level talent, not as a QB, but as a WR. However, playing football was not his highest priority at UTC, per the word on the street smoking weed was much higher. After a couple suspensions and him walking out on the team once he was dismissed from the team. He then transferred to Faulkner, a Div II or III school and he immediately became the best QB in the conference. He was leading the conference in everything until he blew out his knee midseason his final year. If that kid had the desire and a head screwed on straight, he could be playing WR in the NFL now many of us feel.

Good story about Windham. Had a colleague I worked with that used to tell people about UCLA. Upper Conway Lower Aynor. Hunter has been seeing a lot of action of late for the Terriers. Hope he gets a TD or two this Saturday!

Thanks, Gomocs, for the follow up on Robinson. I thought he was very talented as a QB too, but remember when he left the team. Too bad he didn't have the discipline to be great.

Right now there is not much views in the basketball thread so I am going to drop this hear for a moment:

http://woffordterriers.com/news/2014/10 ... 42141.aspx

It's a little reminder that we have a Black & Gold game for our basketball team.

Wouldn't it be awesome to fill the BenJo slam full and have a louder game than any game last year???

Let's show our guys some respect for making us so proud in the NCAA SoCon Tournament and the big Dance by showing up and getting pumped for this season and loud.

Let's be the fans that players dream of having.

Sounds like an exciting weekend of activities. There is a lot of fun to be had and things to be learned even if the game ends up a blowout as many predict (myself included). I wish I could attend some of the classes/lectures.

I don't think we will blow them out, they are too good for that, they will keep it close. ;)
