    Question: What is the SEC’s Requirement For Isolation of a Vaccinated Player?

    Suppose a player develops COVID. Could be a breakthrough infection of a vaxxed player, or could be our one un-vaxxed player getting the virus. What are the SEC’s rules about vaccinated players who meet the medical definition of having been ”in contact with” the infected player? IOW — if a...

    Where Are They Now — Marquis Forge

    It would take an OFC geek to remember Marquis Forge. He was a walk-on fullback in the Stallings era, and didn’t get a lot of playing time. But he had ”One moment in time…” in the 1993 Alabama - Tennessee game at Legion Field. UTe had beaten us up and down the field all night. Really, it was...

    Big news to us softball fans. Ally Shipman, late of the UTe softball team, has announced her transfer to the Crimson Tide. She fills a huge void at Catcher left by departing SEC POY Bailey Hemphill. Highly productive behind the plate, and at bat. Hit at least one HR against us in the...

    Good Move by Heupel

    Didn't see this posted elsewhere, so thought it might be of some interest. Josh Heupel dismissed a QB Kaidon Salter from the arnge program because of a second off-field incident in 3 months. Don't know if it'll result in wins in the short run, but I agree with the author of the article...

    Katie Boyd Britt Enters US Senate Race for Shelby’s Seat

    In the first positive news I’ve seen on Alabama politics in a long time….Katie Boyd Britt entered the race to fill Richard Shelby’s US Senate seat. She has some huge political assets, and some liabilities. Good points: - She’s brilliant, personable, and photogenic (I know that “photogenic”...

    Non-Football: Montana Fouts Pitches PERFECT GAME In WCWS

    Montana Fouts pitched a PERFECT GAME in Friday’s WCWS matchup against the #2 overall seed UCLA. Under any circumstances, that would deserve some discussion on the flagship board. Given that it’s off-season in football, even more so. As someone already posted on the Women’s Sports board, the...

    Advice re: Dog Repellent?

    OK, I’ve got at least one neighbor who allows his / her dog to “do its business” in my yard, and it’s caused several dead spots. I don’t know who the neighbor is, as I’ve seen only the ”souvenirs” left by the dog(s). So I can’t just address it person-to-person as I’d prefer. Does anybody have...

    The lead article for today’s Journal Report on Climate Technology (page R1), follows the discussion we had here on TF that was centered on electric cars. https://www.wsj.com/articles/electrification-of-everything-11620843173?page=1 I think you have to subscribe, or maybe get a few free...

    Clay Travis Gets Rich….No Kidding

    Couldn’t decide whether this was Football, NSNP, or just NS. Settled on NS because that’s the most wide-ranging board, and because, while Clay Travis got his start covering sports, there might be a political aspect to this story. Love him or despise him, Clay Travis just got rich. Can’t link...

    Electrical Wiring Question

    I'm getting a new wine cooler, and will have it on the same 15 amp circuit as the existing one. When the coolers run, they draw about 2 amps -- no problem. But when the compressor kicks on, it draws 9 amps for about 5-6 seconds. Still no problem....unless both kick on at the same time. If...

    More Trouble for LSU & Orgeron Dodges an Invitation from the Legislature

    Couldn’t decide if this is Football or NS, but because the NS aspects involve football, I put it here. Today, USA Today published some damning articles involving LSU. The big one is that Sharon Lewis, LSU’s Associate Athletic Director for Recruiting, is filing a lawsuit against a laundry list...

    Look Out For the Crew Team!

    The University of Alabama crew team is #8 in the country, climbing from #11 a week ago. This was after defeating UTe (former #8, now #9) on the road in Oak Ridge, TN last Saturday. The meet was originally scheduled to be on the river in Tuscaloosa, and Mrs. Basket Case and I were going to...

    Question re: Abby Doerr

    Does anybody know if she’s OK? Injured? Did a quick Google search and couldn’t find any information. She‘s the only natural catcher on the team, and isn’t playing much. 0-10 batting, and played in only 5 games. Bailey Hemphill is playing out of position as catcher because there isn’t...

    Excellent WSJ Article on UPS CEO

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/ups-boss-preaches-the-power-of-no-11614335402?page=1 This might be paywalled, so I’ll give a quick summary: Carol Tome took over as the CEO at UPS right as the pandemic got into full swing. An unfortunate random happenstance on the timing, but she’s done a really...

    Now That It’s Off-season — Words & Phrases That Should Be Suspended

    With Late Signing Day in the rear view mirror, it’s officially the offseason. During 2020, we learned and over-used a lot of words and phrases. So much so, that I never want to hear them again. But I’ll settle for a 1-year suspension from the English language. Here are a few on my list...

    Bloomberg Article On The Ignored Political Center

    Interesting article on Bloomberg regarding the largely-ignored growth of voters not affiliated with any party. Says it’s an outgrowth of the incredible partisanship in both GOP and Dems. One interesting line says that there’s growing research that shows that when one group of hyper-partisans...

    To Our OSU Posters’ Class On A Tough Night

    BIGTide and OSUTideFan are the most prolific Buckeye posters here on TideFans, and the significant majority of our OSU members are highly valued and add a lot to our discussions. This was a tough night for our OSU friends, and remembering some tough nights of our own, I can certainly empathize...

    Heroes and Villains in 3 Dimensions vs. 2

    Couldn’t decide if this was football or NSNP. Then, decided it was primarily about how we view others. In this case, the introduction is through football, but that’s not really the story. Joseph Goodman is a reporter for Al.com. I often disagree with him (as do a lot of other posters), and...

    Reminder on Profanity -- Don't Use It On TideFans

    Guys, one of the great things about TideFans is the ban on profanity. I know a lot of us, me included, have been visiting other programs' websites lately. With some of the language, personal attacks and downright nastiness out there, I sometimes feel like I need to take a shower afterward...
