Dr. S, the smoke did you good! I like this format. Easy to read. Easy to resource.


Doctor did you know Snead has declared for the NFL draft? I guess he tired on ole dixie faster than any of us anticipated and couldn't take no more of the University Greys' proposed rising and just wanted to get the hell away from there. He's a smarter quarterback than I imagined. Even the Nut(t) coaching the rebels says he's surprised and wanted one more year from Snead. Mississippi State it looks like you will be kicking some rebel booty faster than you thought possible. My nephew should transfer before it's too late.
