Go Vols, Go Weston - And Response

Monday, July 21, 2014

All Tennesseans know what it's like to have a lawyer coaching the UT Vols football team and another one representing the Third District as congressman. 

All we need to know now is how many Tennesseans will vote to find out what it's like to have Weston Wamp, son of the best congressman (Zach Wamp) the Third District ever had, representing us. 

We have a young, energetic new coach in Knoxville firing things up for the Big Orange Nation; we need a young, energetic new congressman firing things up for us in our nation's capital.

Go Vols. Go Weston.

I don't know what qualifications you need to have to be a Congressmen except to sit on your behind, argue and do nothing, but Chuck Flieshmann fits the bill.

Please give Weston Wamp a chance, if he doesn't fit the bill, vote him him out the next election, but I've got a feeling he will make a change.

Please vote for Weston.

Ken Seepe.

Top-Ranked Bradley Uses Fast Start To Beat Baylor

There’s no question that the Bradley Bears are ranked first in the initial state wrestling poll and they proved they deserve to be in that top spot following a 43-30 victory over the Baylor Red Raiders. Baylor is ranked fourth in that first poll and will surely be a force to be reckoned with in Division II as the season progresses, but the Bears are head and shoulders ahead after ...

Run-And-Gun Tyner Shoots Down Red Bank 71-33
