Randy Smith: Will SEC Fans Ever Learn?

I have come to the conclusion that SEC fans are the best and most loyal fans in the country. They are also among the least patient fans as well.  They are easily spoiled and they become too comfortable in the winning environment that practically every team has now and then.

Roy Exum: The Readers Are Right

Jeffrey Cross is a community activist in the very finest way.

I wish this world had a million Jeffrey Crosses. So when he wrote in protest of my Monday story, “We Want Our City Back,” I was more than eager to read ... (click for more)
