    If anyone took it seriously, they need to turn the other cheek.

    Now that is a very good one croc. A+++

    But you see, I've actually see the Christian Look when you meet True Believers when we lived in Greenville, SC. It was simply fascinating to visit Bob Jones University and see the always smiling faces and happy walks/countenances of every student there, because they are True Believers, and therefore feel they Know The Truth.

    So, you were correct, Tebow's semi-sneer in that photo is not a Christian or Muslim, or Hindu (etc.) True Believer Look, I was merely curious whether you were aware.

    Also saw the same thing when I worked with a Batch of Apostolics in Las Vegas (which itself has a very solid base of Mormans).

    Now, Buddhist Monks smile more internally, as well as externally, but most Americans only know about 2 forms of Buddhism, Tibetan and Zen due to wives brought from Japan after WW II, which is much like perceiving Christianity from the perspective of Mormans or Christian Scientists - because both of those are pretty outlandish examples.

    I've seen a lot of evangelists preach, and they don't have Christian looks. They tell you you're going to hell and they look like they actually want you to go.

    When I was five or six, there was a holy roller tent revival going on every night for a week across the road from my grandparents' house. It sounded like they were having a lot of fun, so I asked my mother to take me one night.

    As we sat in the service, I didn't actually get scared till a woman near me jumped up and started speaking in tongues. I told my mother, "Mama, I'm not feeling too well. I think we better go."

    So we got up and started walking out, my mother holding me by the hand. The preacher stopped in the middle of his sermon, pointed at us, and said, "Lady, you could be walking into eternity out there."

    Luckily we got home all right.

    This team, especially the OL and DL will see huge differences. And as the Line goes, so goes the team.

    When I heard the S&C was so lax,it made a lot of sense. Injuries off the chart. Our line can't protect anyone. Our line can't get 2 yards when needed.

    It may not be Mac couldn't coach. It may have been our players could not hang.

    In any event, I am glad things have changed.

    It follows that the players could not hang because Mac couldn't coach. What competent coach wants lax S&C, can't see that it's lax, or doesn't even care that it's lax?

    Totally Understood. I guess I was saying he may have been out of his element or over his head.

    Let me put it another way, Mac may know X & O's (That's why he survived under Bama) but is not HC material. He's definitely not at the SEC Level.
