Havent seen Dave around here recently... but Skip Holtz is in full on save his job mode...

5 JUCO commits in the last week... i dont think he grasps how much his job depends on recruiting tampa talent... and hes not doing that worth a poop.

I am going to guess most folks want a new coach. We are 11-1, but not winning pretty. Shoe is backing Weber. I could care less, I think I would like to watch better bball, but how can you can a guy who is 11-1. Zook we had to fire, despite the bowl game, he was a shitty coach, Weber knows bball, but his teams just play like crap.

Yeah, Weber is a good coach, but he is always yelling on the sidelines, seems his teams go into a shell. I think these kids get too much information and they think too much (or try to think). He recruits well, but I am starting to wonder about if he recruits kids who fit his system (ala Bo Ryan or Jim Beilein). I like him, but I could understand getting a different coach, but who is to say we will get a better one??

You mean "'COULDN'T' care less", because otherwise you are stating the opposite. People keep turning this phrase wrong, even in the mass media, and it's really starting to stick in my craw.
 
(Someone had better give me credit for using the term "stick in my craw" btw. I'm looking at you, BlackSox and Fury.)

Yeah, I am bad about that one. I understand why I am wrong, but 55 years of habit is hard to break.

I had a blind programmer working on my team 10 years or so ago. I used to walk him down to coffee machine and buy him a bad cup of coffee every day. One day he says, MSF, could you please stop taking the Lord's name in vain. I said "Jesus Christ Mike, that is going to be a tough habit to break."

He is lucky I did not say Jesus F------ Christ.

I get what you mean on yelling at the players... Leavitt was crucified for that style of coaching but his teams always over-achieved... skip is nice and sweet on the players... and we lost 5 games this year where we held a lead with 3 minutes or less to go...

blind programmer . . .buy him a bad cup of coffee
 
You're kind of a jagoof then aren't you? From what I understand, sight-impaired folks are way more sensitive to their other senses, so it really kinda sucks that you bought him bad coffee. . .there was no good coffee available in the neighborhood? You are indeed a cruel bastard.

Re: "greatest guitarists"... just my opinion, technical expertise does not necessarily make one a "great guitarist."

Keith Richards may be just a riffmeister, but he's the best riffmeister ever, probably.  He brings exactly the right thing to his band, and always at the right time.  I think he fully deserves to be #5 on that list or any list.  IMO, it's not always how fast or how adroitly one can move his fingers around the guitar neck, or how long the guitar solo is.  (And if the solo is longer than about 20 or 30 seconds, please, just kill me.)

Stevie Ray Vaughan always makes the lists of "great guitarists"...but I find him derivative, recycled Hendrix for the most part.  By comparison, his brother is a way tastier player in my mind.  Hendrix himself was innovative in some ways, if you go for that sort of sound (I don't).  Don't even get me started on Clapton.

Then again, I like trashy, three-chord songs that clock in at under two and a half minutes.  So, disregard.

Jeter, full credit given.

I LOVE "stick in my craw."   I even use that in conversation.

Lists like that are lightning rods, to be taken with a huge grain of proverbial salt.   But overall, I think they got the top ones right.  I was particularly pleased that Johnny Ramone made the top 30.

But to rank "The Edge" above Bloomfield, Garcia, Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Albert Collins, Joe Walsh, etc.?  Blasphemy!    He's Peter Buck with a heavy reliance on effect pedals.

On the same page here.  I suppose I should look at that list, but doing so would only **** me off.

Nice that Johnny Ramone got in the top 30.  I wonder if Ron Asheton made the list at all, or Lowman Pauling?

'could care less' is #2 on my 'stick in my craw list'.

#1 is the incorrect use of resign when they mean re-sign.

Jeter do have any more examples to add to the list?

The misuse of "less" in place of "fewer" drives me nuts, as does using "farther" and "further" interchangeably.

That MIGHT get shoeless back here... hes been sadly absent lately....

I think I know the perfect photo to draw Shoeless out of hiding. 

Now if I can only find it on the internet, it'll replace the old Comiskey Park facade pic at the top.

LOL  Sorry no nakked pics of the Big Hurt as they violate the TOS at C-A-F.

  Maybe this 'Sammy Claus' photo will work to draw Shoeless back into the fold.

Re:  Rolling Stone's 100 guitar players -- I actually know David Fricke, one of the editors of
Rolling Store, that came up with the list.  Very mild mannered and unobtrusive guy.  Comes for Jazz Fest every year.  I don't see Muddy or Robbie Robertson, but it's hard to navigate the Rolling Stone article.  B.B. King at number three surprises me, and I'm with Fury on Clapton -- that guy does nothing for me at all.  A few of the songs on Springsteen's first couple of albums are worth listening to, but Born to Run was just awful.  Keith Richards -- what Fury says again.  You don't get that Rolling Stones hip shaking, toe tapping, rock-n-roll groove without him.

Yeah, I have no problem with Richards that high, he is the Stones unique sound.
