Grantham on going to Louisville and the defense being 'backbone’ to winning SEC East

“To win a championship, it takes a lot of different elements. And the first thing it takes is to have an athletic director that has a vision for the resources needed moving forward. And you obviously have that.”

Grantham called Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich a person that is “proactive and stays out in front, gives you all the resources you need.”

I'm so glad we are done with this classless jerk. His defense was rated 78th in the nation. Instead of getting fired, he gets a $150,000 raise and he is still taking swipes at UGA. Both those quotes imply that he was not getting the "resources" from the AD that he needed to win. Just take your money and shut up.

Police ask to give sick leave to wounded officer

Do they even need to "consider the request" on this? The officers are volunteering their leave for a fellow officer who was shot IN THE LINE OF DUTY! If anything, the city council should just go ahead and pay him until he can return to work. Anything less than that should be a no-brainer.

Grantham: We didn't play good on sudden change

I am also not a huge Bobo fan, but during the regular season the team averaged more than 38 points per game and still managed to lose 4 of them. The least amount of points we scored all season was 23, and that was when we BEAT Florida. AND we lost to Auburn after scoring FIVE touchdowns. Seems to me like the offensive coordinator is DOING his job.

This year, we averaged over 38 points per game and still had an 8-4 season. The least amount we scored was 23 against Florida and we won that game. As much as everyone has been piling on Bobo, I don't think the offense is the problem.

Health plan sticker shock ahead for some buyers

[quote][b]Farmer GA[/b] -
He changed the law to make it Constitutional, or, did you forget how Obama and company insisted that the penalty was NOT a tax? If that was the intent of the law, Roberts calling it a tax was against the intent of Congress, and, therefore, he is guilty of legislating from the bench.
[/quote]

He didn't change the law, he just called it what it was, which was a tax, no matter what the administration was trying to get past the people. By saying that the only way it was Constitutional was if it was a tax, he outed the administration and forced the Democrats to own that fact, because they could no longer honestly say that they weren't raising our taxes.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
