Why isn’t FSU ranked #1? GAP – Day 327

Why isn’t FSU ranked #1? GAP – Day 327

Today’s GAP post is for attitude. Okay – not really an attitude per se, but definitely a point of contention I have with the College Football ranking system. Frankly, the #1 ranked Alabama team is being outproduced by several teams, including the #2 ranked Florida State Seminoles. To back my rant, I pulled stats to see … Continue reading

Taming the Social Media Hot Mic

This mic is always turned on… For the past few weeks, I have struggled with developing an idea worth blogging about. I’ve had several things to write about, but I’m a bit clogged with personal opinions that feel more like ranting than actually adding value to others – which is what I intentionally purposed this … Continue reading

They are someone’s father/mother/son/daughter/brother/sister/etc. Whenever you see the colors, remember that regardless of your … Continue reading

Fat-Cat Skat

This cartoon well illustrates my frustration with government… it’s simply getting too big.  Too many federal offices of God knows what to regulate everything under the sun, including the “unfair” profits of some private sector industries and/or companies in what is supposed to be a capitalistic society. I was reminded today of this passage from … Continue reading
