  1. Ask SMU. They have had some experience with this.
  2. Forde is a smart guy. This makes sense to me but of course it will never happen. It is interesting to note that he has ranked our profile 119 out of 120. We made it in by the skin of our teeth!
  3. As a matter of fact, there is a statue of Washington in London. Right on Trafalgar Square!
  4. I'm not certain where the author received her information about North Texas' jazz program "being in the closet". The forerunner, The Aces of Collegeland, had a nationally broadcast radio program as early as the 2O's. In the early 60's, the 1 0'Clock jazz band was broadcast over the Voice of America as well as touring. There may be something to her claim that jazz was not considered a proper major in those early days, but almost every music school of any size now offers a degree in jazz, including Juilliard.
  5. Yes there is, the mighty Firenzi Guelfi, but I think they are all set for QBs. Andrea Ghiachin seems to have gotten the nod for the start. https://www.guelfifirenze.it
  6. People know about the small, exclusive, private schools primarily in the east like Oberlin, Williams, Colby, Amherst, etc. These schools are heavily endowed and in excellent financial shape. But for every Amherst, there are probably twenty other small, private schools that operate, in the best of times, on the brink of financial insolvency. My guess is that he is referring to these schools. I was an adjunct at one of these types of schools for almost twenty years. Full professors were paid about 60K and it went down from there. They were constantly trying to find another institution to take them over.
  7. Interesting! At any rate, the university should contact the RAAF and see what is going on.
  8. Air Force flying squadrons all over the world have both a formal squadron crest and an informal logo, typically based on the unit's call sign. As an example, my last squadron's call sign was "Alleycat" and its informal logo is below. As you see, virtually no money was spent on the design or manufacture of these! My guess is that somebody in the RAAF 3rd Squadron somehow saw the SOW and said, "hey, that's looks great, let's use it" and so they did. I see other RAAF squadron use different informal logos. Still, they should have asked permission before doing so,
  9. Yes, SFA should have hired UNC's attorneys.
  10. Here's a nice write-up in the NY Times today. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/16/arts/television/phyllis-george-dead.html
  11. Down the corridor of years, we'll forgot our joys and tears... You are absolutely correct, it was Shirley Cothran's dad, not Phyllis George's father.. Thanks for the clarification.
  12. I am certainly no expert here but I seem to recall there was some sort of official tie-in between the Miss Texas pageant and TCU. As as aside, almost every student at North Texas knew Phyllis George's father as he was the security guard at the library exit to make sure no one was stealing books! He was a very kind man who was always ready to chat.
  13. When the P5 players start taking their pay cuts, we will know this virus business is really serious!
  14. And who can forget that famous half-time show?
