Congratulations to UAM, not sure TECH is the opponent to measure by yet - picked to finish about last in GAC.

The Weevils have a good shot at finishing 6-5 this year and return a BUNCH for next year!  Can be a contender in 2014.

For you Weevil football fans............

http://uamsports.com/news/2014/4/15/FB_0415142627.aspx?elinkdata=73483

When Coach Jackson arrived in 2011 the cupboard was VERY bare.  His first class in 2011 had 45 signees, 35 of them are still with the team and will be seniors this season.  Leadership should not be an issue this year.

This should be a good year for UAM Football. They haven't been legitimate contenders for a conference title since I went to UAM in 2000 but with a large senior class, they should be in contention this upcoming season.

No, never played. Just went to UAM for a semester after high school, then went into the Air Force. My degree is from ATU, but I cheer for UAM.

I need to go to some games.

Some that stood out to me:

Oct. 11th vs. Harding  (Homecoming)
Nov. 8th  vs. OBU 
Nov. 15th vs. SAU

I haven't been to a Homecoming game since my last year of football.

Heartbreaking loss for UAM last night. What appeared to be a game winning touchdown was ruled an interception. To me, it looked like the defensive back took the ball after it was caught.

Had the same opinion you had Romeo...looked like a TD.  They still looked pretty good though.  From what I heard, we weren't even supposed to be in that game.  Looks like UAM might have found what they needed to score some serious wins in the GAC this year.

PH probably hasn't been to Russvegas Whataburger since college.  Really was the place to go at one time.  Had the kids pick me up one of their chocolate malts last week - still real good.  Every once in a while, we'll stop there to remember the good ole days.

PH ate at Whatta-burger back in August. Had my usual double whatta with a chocolate shake. It is still enjoyable. I have actually found a much better burger in Stuttgart, but Whatta-burger is still better than CJ's and definitely better than the Texican ripoff. AW repent now of your heresies. There is still time.

I will review it today and give you my ruling.  My initial call from about 75 yards away that day was TD.  The official 2 yards away said TD, but the little fat official on the other side of the field came waddling in and said interception....bless his heart.

Already talked with a few of the coaches to see what the deal was.  Said the officials made the wrong call.

Definitely a bad call.  Coach and his staff are taking the high road and saying they have to learn to put teams away (they had there chances to go up three scores) and make the judgment calls a non-issue.

Coach Manning told me that was the reason a penalty was assessed after the call.

Went from disrespecting the real burger joint with real hamburgers to disrespecting the weevil. Now you've done it.

What I don't get is why both of you have different mascots for your women.  Why can't Tech women be Wondergirls?  What does "Golden Sun" have to do with anything?  And UAM, what's up with "cotton blossom"?  Don't boll weevils eat cotton blossoms?  Kind of an unfortunate implication there.

Wonderboy is a nickname tagged on us after we beat Alabama.  Girls didn't want to be called Wondergirls, so in 73' they voted the Golden Suns as their mascot.
