.... Oct 7, ’12:  Was it THE GREATEST FOOTBALL SATURDAY in Triangle History?  Don’t know who keeps such records but it would be hard to imagine a better one.... AND you coulda seen all three in-person.  I opted for two of the three..... Recapping Week Six and a Night of Fame attracts the famous.  Yet another memorable event for William Neal Reynolds Coliseum ......

How Does Everyone Else "Do It"?

...... Oct 3, ’12:  A personal pet peeves is knee-jerks’ reaction that each problem in Life is unique requiring its own unique solution.  Horse Pucky!  There is nothing in Life that is unique when it involves human nature and group behavior.  “We need to hold a bunch of meetings on this and devise our own unique solution to this problem....” is nitwit-speak for “We don’t have a freakin’ clue.  If we stall long enough maybe it will just go away.” ......

Dear Holden: I think you should.....

...... Oct 1; 12:  Dear Holden:  As always, I want happiness and a good night’s sleep for the FamilyThorp.  I warned you that Dickie was a putz and that Tami was a she-pariah but free advice is worth what it costs you, huh? As regards that bold announcement about AthleteAdmissions.  Before the goggle-eyed crazies go into high gear on the threats again, I have MORE free advice for you on that. ........

".... and know when to fold'em!"

..... Sept 27, ’12:  I’ve long used a poker game to illustrate an academic institution’s decision to “be competitive” at the BCS / Final Four level of Big Time College Sports.  A seat at the BCS Poker table requires a hefty ante and a steely-eyed commitment to do what it takes to do what we say we intend to do.  Today, lame-duck Chancellor Holden Thorp has folded UNC’s hand and pushed away from that high stakes game with "the Big Dogs".  The applaudin’. and the cussin’, has commenced......

Those Chinese... AND Hickory Rotarians

..... Sept 24, ’12:  Last week I traveled to Hickory to speak to the Hickory Rotary Club.  What I learned was exactly what I told Holden Thorp four years ago.... and have reminded you guys on numerous occasions.  Those good ol’ 8,000,000, 000 Chinese ain’t alone......  and a recap of Week Four on America’s gridirons......

The Chancellor and the putz and the horn dog and....

....Sept 17, '12: 
UPDATED 10 AM Tuesday.

Holden Thorp, and his wife Patti, have been personal friends of mine for 5+ years thru thick and thin and lots of yucky sludge.  I’ve never been “friends” with a for-real chancellor before.   I have no frame of reference to say if being “friends with a chancellor” is always as bumpy a ride as the past 2+ years with Holden have been.  

Times abeing what they are I assume “friends with a chancellor” is not unlike being friends with a public school superintendent or a city manager or a major college FB or BkB coach who has lost 2-3 games in a row.  In other words one has the “Peter In The Garden” Option – Sure, I could deny my friendship three times before the cock crows if I want to.  I don’t want to.

Week Three: Do Stanford's Players Take Swahili?

..... Sept 17, ’12:  I adopted Stanford as my favorite “not-an-alma-mater” team when I saw Toby Gerhart gallop over Notre Dame and Southern Cal.  I loved Toby and Harbaugh The Younger and Andrew The Luck.  Could Stanford be the One Team in America that doesn’t play “everybody does it” ethics..... Before I sign the final adoption papers I gots to know – “Do Stanford’s players take Swahili?”.......

Oh Me! Oh My!.... OH MATT !

...... Sept 12,’12:  Whatever can I write about today ?? There’s the wild card race in the AL.... go O’s.  Those replacement refs??  NASCAR’s Chase begins??  South Alabama visits The Carter?? ....  Nahhh, I need something oozing with sex and abject stoopidity.  The DNC last week?  No, something a bit closer to home.
