Moms and other family members and friends can call each other whatever they want or can get away with. And sometimes they're not all that nice. But that's different from somebody going out to interview for a 6 figure job and introducing himself as "Poo Pants Jones"
Or 'Dick', 'Jimmy' or 'Barack'? :P
Yeah, I never understand why, with a perfectly decent name of Richard, Rich, Rick one would call himself Dick. I don't mind nicknames, but c'mon, pick a manly name - not one that you'd give an 8-year old. Seems "James" is a good name by itself, but if not, "Jim" is a real adult's name. Somehow, "You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don't mess around with Jimmy"

Just doesn't work.

It did for

Little Jimmy married Dolly
Martin married a Hoes and their vp was Dick Dick
And there a Millard, a Rutherford, a Grover and a Dwight who married a Mamie, and a Lyndon who married a Lady Bird.
Dick Nixon
Jimmy Carter

Sometimes those standout names help. At least they didn't hurt the president's, their wives and vps.

Can you imagine what's hiding in those middle initials.
There, I feel better now after you made fun of my given name of Billy Bubba Pilgrim - for true

I wonder if betting against lower seeded sec teams doesn't account for sec ref's efforts to keep 2 or 3 teams at the top at the expense of these good teams.

Vrede, I m counting on you to beat bammer. Although they are our inspiration to climbing the ladder, I'm just not sure we have it this year. Sure, we can and did beat bammer, but it's a hard row to hoe to get to them again.

If the Terps can't do it, maybe the Aztecs will get a crack at them.
Of course, Aztecs play in a bit of a weenie conference for basketball and despite winning the conference championship 9ish times, had never made it past the first round until today.

Go Terps! Send Bammer back to the elephant graveyard.

Funny article. What a difference between the 2 coaches.
The bammer coach was hysterically attacking auburn for not supporting all sec teams, something UA fans have never done, especially concerning AU.

The Maryland coach was both realistic and funny. I too hope that there are a lot of Auburn fans watching y'all take them out
Go Terps.

Fairleigh Dickinson pulled off the biggest NCAA tournament upset point spread-wise in 38 years, stunning No. 1 seed Purdue as a 23.5-point underdog on Friday night to become the second 16-seed to win a game in the round of 64.

FDU, which was 25-1 to beat Purdue straight-up at some sportsbooks, had longer odds to win the game in Columbus, Ohio, than the Boilermakers did to win the entire tournament. Purdue was around 10-1 to win the whole thing.

Some bettors took their shot on the Cinderella Knights, who only made the tournament because Northeast Conference champion Merrimack was ineligible while transitioning from Division II.

The South Point sportsbook in Las Vegas reported taking a $2,100 money-line bet on FDU at 25-1 odds. The bet paid a net $52,500....

What article are you referring to? I didn't link a Maryland one.
I could find the one I read but this is almost a duplicate

"Alabama’s Nate Oats ‘extremely frustrated’ with assistants after Noah Clowney picks up third foul" 10 minutes into the game

"CBS Sports’ Tracy Wolfson reported during the broadcast that Oats was “extremely frustrated with his assistants. He said, ‘I didn’t know he had two. That’s three? Why didn’t anyone tell me?’”' someone heard him lambasting the ncaa for not allowing him to utilize his sec officials in the Tournament.

Poor guy, here's looking at a whole pot-o-frustration today. Go Terps

Funny article. What a difference between the 2 coaches.
The bammer coach was hysterically attacking auburn for not supporting all sec teams, something UA fans have never done, especially concerning AU.

The Maryland coach was both realistic and funny. I too hope that there are a lot of Auburn fans watching y'all take them out

If the Terps can't do it, maybe the Aztecs will get a crack at them.
Of course, Aztecs play in a bit of a weenie conference for basketball and despite winning the conference championship 9ish times, had never made it past the first round until today.

Go Terps! Send Bammer back to the elephant graveyard.

Phew, congrats!

Starter Haley Cavinder led both teams with 16 points, and led the Canes with 8 rebounds. Sister Hanna had 2 points off the bench.

They're also winning the NIL game:

When I first heard of NIL I imagined men's shoe contracts and posters on young boys' walls. I didn't think of hot blondes with hard bodies :doh: , posters on older boys' walls. :o

FYI, 16 FDU, victor over 1 Purdue, is the shortest team in Div 1 (or maybe just MM).

WTF, Dook? First time maybe ever you've got most of the UNC people rooting for you and you choke. Or maybe that was because of the UNC jinx. Whatever.
