we had 5 shot clock violation turnovers, most in the last 7 minutes. Keeping SC on defense by running the shot clock was not only smart for us, but also good practice for tournament time
Not going to make Friday but will Sat and Sunday.
Paging @WESGATORS for Saturday.
He walked on that dunk also!
I really enjoyed the SC game.
Gators were solid in all aspects of the game.
To beat any SEC opponent by 20+ ON THE ROAD is a big deal.
Specially one that stole a win in your house.
Near the end of the game ole Frank just sat there with his head in his hands.
Nice threads Coach.
I hope THIS TEAM is the one that shows up the rest of the season.
I agree. It looked like a pissed off chicken on fire.
Channeling my inner Themistocles:
Is Ending a Sentence with a Preposition Acceptable?
At one time, schoolchildren were taught that a sentence should never end with a preposition. However, this is a rule from Latin grammar that was applied to English. While many aspects of Latin have made their way into the English language, this particular grammar rule is not suited for modern English usage.
There are times when trying to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition creates unnecessary and awkward phrasing. For example, Winston Churchill once allegedly exclaimed, "That is the sort of thing up with which I will not put!" to mock someone who criticized him for ending a sentence with a preposition. Since the purpose of writing is to clearly communicate your thoughts and ideas, it’s perfectly acceptable to end a sentence with a preposition if the alternative would create confusion or sound unnatural.
However, it may still be worth revising your sentences to avoid ending them with a preposition whenever possible if you wish to reduce the risk of controversy. Since there are still a number of people who believe ending a sentence with a preposition is incorrect, considering your audience’s thoughts on the issue is a wise idea—particularly when you’re trying to gain a new client or land an important job interview. For example, “Which department is she in?” could simply be rewritten to read as “She is in which department?” without influencing clarity or comprehension.
Next week's quiz will be about splitting prepositions.
I am from Chicago. Southside. And, yes, within the city limits. The question"Do you want to go with?" is considered correct usage by ordinary peeps on the Southside.
Rising from the ashes.
Yeah .. it does look like a pissed off SC Gamecock with its ass on fire.
Did you know Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown? Before his untimely demise that is.
I knew people that would eat him for breakfast.
One of them must have been the guy whose wife he was messing with.
I helped Sam Giancana's niece learn Statics and Circuits.
So you are probably on the FBI's watch list?
But I have also worked on many sensitive projects and have been in many sensitive places, so I guess that I am OK with them.
Maybe this is why I am always TSApre even though I didn't pay for it.
Well done Art. I deeply apologize and respect your extensive research . If Churchill can execute the improper use of prepositions in a sentence ,then by golly so can the ArtVandelay. And I had a feeling that a @themistocles reference appear.
