The Slate is compiled by Doctor S between shots of Nyquil. He doesn't have a cold, he just likes the taste.
And University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) at Shouthern Miss (11 AM, Hattiesburg CSS, 105.1 FM). It's the Blackout game.
Doctor S is JSU playing this saturday in Jackson i didn't see it in your column. I thought it was Homecoming.
Maybe the Dr. has not seen your post, NewJackson. Jackson State University is playing Prarie View on tomorrow (10/30/10). It is also Homecoming for the Tigers. I don't know the time of the game.
I knew that but from reading the JACKSON free press it didnt seem like JSU was playing on saturday or having homecoming so excuse me for pointing out the obvious. Out of mind, nowhere in site is what it is huh. And i took issue with Doctor s when he called JSU fans fickle, and he said something else about JSU a couple of weeks ago that had me hot, its called respect.
