    I love it when an attorney gets in front of a dictation machine drunk.

    Not unheard of. I know people who won't go to Pennsylvania because John Dickinson sucked up to George III

    An appeals judge would take one look at that order, wad it up and throw it back in his face.

    Gentler pastures of the Southeastern Conference? Blasphemy.

    Judge Bubbler would've made the Wal-Mart dude fly to Guam.

    Coupla thoughts:
    1.) The way that story reads, the Hogs and Horns have played 76 times in Texas. Yeah, the Horns own the Razorbacks on the football field, but Arkansas is not part of The Great State.

    2.) Were those the arguments the attorneys made, or did Nowlin come up with that on his own? I'd give the attorneys an iota of credit for making a creative argument, but if the judge spawned this drivel, he should be disbarred. One would think a wrongful death case would deserve more respect.

    The judge should be unseated and disbarred before noon.

    You're dealing with people's lives here, you pompous jock-slurping fuckbucket.

    Dicta aside, the actual decision (hold the depo in Texarkana) is perfectly sound.

    I think this phrase should be added to the SportsJournalists.com Style Book.

    Classic stuff.

    Actually, of the other eight former SWC teams, Arkansas is right in the middle (UT leads, 55-21). A&M has fared the best against the Horns with a .662 percentage (73-36-5), showing how thoroughly UT dominated all of the SWC.

    SMU has the second-best percentage (.671), but all but 5 of the Ponies' wins came before 1960 (and 3 of those were during the Dickerson/James era). Houston is No. 3, but didn't join the league until 1976.
