Billy Gillispie is Kentucky Fried Chicken

Postby Ackbar » Thu Apr 12, 2007 9:15 am

Howdy James,

Class of `02, graduated `05. I've been up to 12,000 w no symptoms at all. I'll bring ibuprofen but otherwise not too worried about it.

I did not get any work done from Friday to yesterday as I have been grieving the loss of one Billy Clyde Gillispie, now referred to in College Station as KFC. I hope the Turg is the answer. He has talent presented on a silver platter so he better not F it up. Ags deserve a good basketball team, too.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Keep it coming.

Turgeon is a good coach- but it's the guys on the court who ultimatley have to get it done! WSU is strong baseball school, and Turg was a big part of the basketball program coming alive here.

KU jayhawks were loaded with talent this year, and failed to get it done- with good coaching. there's prob 3 future NBAers on that team (Arthur, Wright, Rush) and they couldn't even make the final 4.

Hope Turg does you well! until ya'll play KU :wink:

Kit Carson/Challenger Point

I have limited experience, but I felt like Kit Carson was really overrated for it's difficulty. I felt like Castle (class 2) had more exposure and more hand and feet climbing than Kit Carson, which to me was never beyond a hike.
just my 2cents
