Pearl Harbor Day

Unfortunately, the WAD couldn't be with us today. Something about being busy at work. Strange that found time to post while travelling Europe with a real life girl, but doesn't have time now. Obviously his priorities are out of whack.

On a serious note, today is the 65th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. As FDR said, December 7 is a "date which will live in infamy." Unfortunately, as the WWII vets die this date is getting less and less coverage. As I am writing this, there is no mention of Pearl Harbor day on's front page. I'm sure I'm not the only one with a grandfather that served in the Pacific, and it's insulting that the event that triggered our declaration of war is being forgotten.

(Fite steps down from the soap box)

Back to college football. USA Today printed each coach's vote in the final poll. Here are a few observations:

George O'Leary didn't vote for Georgia Tech. I guess you have to leave somebody off if you want to vote Houston #22.

Bobby Ross showed some love to his former team, putting the Jackets #25.

What about Howard Schnellenberger? He coached exactly one season at Oklahoma before getting canned. For some reason a 1995 season going 5-5-1 (0-4-1 against the top 25) wasn't enough to keep his job. Howard's obviously still a little bitter, putting Oklahoma at #18.

Ron Zook has taken his firing a little better. He put Florida #2 and Michigan #3.

Feel free to continue bitching about college football, and remember we're only 12 days away from the Poinsettia bowl.

Have a nice day.
