    Congrats David and Terrico, well deserved honor.

    The day of the Irish:
    An Irishman and an American were sitting in the bar at Shannon Airport.

    “I’ve come to meet my brother,” said the Irishman. “He’s due to fly in from
    America in an hour’s time. It’s his first trip home in forty years”.

    “Will you be able to recognize him?” asked the American.

    “I’m sure I won’t,” said the Irishman, “after all, he’s been away for a long time”.

    “I wonder if he’ll recognize you?” said the American.

    “Of course he will,” said the Irishman. “Sure, an’ I haven’t been away at all”.

    Howdy JB, I just got back from hiding out in the Great Smoky Mtns. for a few days. Looks like you kept everyone straight while I was away. Congrats to Terrico, David and all the players on the All-SEC list. Hope all the SEC teams have a good showing at the Dance.

    Yep all 3 of them. I have always thought that an 8 or 9 seed is the worst seed to draw in the tourney. you have to play a one seed in the second round and have virtually no chance of advancing. I would much rather have a 10 or 11 seed. That’s just me though.

  4. JB Says:

    Hey Ripley, nice hearing from you again. Hope you all had a fun time in the Great Smokys. Nay! The young whippersnappers tried to keep this old codger in line, but it was of little trying on their part.

    The young Rebels did extremely well this season under the circumstance that occurred to the them. Young players getting a chance to play. Hope it will pay off next season for the Rebs. Should be a more competitive team.

  5. ripleyreb Says:

    rebel2011, I agree. the 8-9 winner is a tough way to go, getting a #1 seed. The winner of the 7-10 match-up gets to play #2 seed. that’s not a very good spot either. With Mr. Slive being the Chairman of the Selection Committee, he didn’t help the SEC teams much IMO.

  6. ripleyreb Says:

    Thanks JB, we had a great time. We are now looking forward to heading down to you part of the country this fall. If Mr. Boone ever gets the football schedule completed, then we can make some plans. On the basketball team, if everyone comes healthy, it should be a fun season.

  7. bornarebel Says:

    JB I don’t know if you have heard but the Yocona River Inn burned last week.

  8. bigdraws Says:

    Ripley, the way I understand it he has to be out of the room while the SEC teams are being discussed. Same went for Templeton on the baseball committee a few years ago.

  9. ripleyreb Says:

    Thanks Draws, did not know that. Good luck to your Bulldogs, hope they can make some noise out West.

  10. JB Says:

    bornarebel, yes, I knew. My brother-in-law sent me an e-mail just after it happened. My wife’s mother and daddy owned the old house to the right facing the old Inn. When they died, the kids sold it to the owner of the Inn and used the front lawn as parking. Don’t know what they used the old house for. We(Me and Wife) should have bought that old place. Could have got it for $17,000 and about 4 acres with it. Hind sight 50-50 tho.
    That old store building had been there many years. I would say its over 100 years old. Probably a wealth of old coins that fell thru the cracks in flooring of that old store.

  11. JB Says:

    Correction to above: Hindsight 50-50, should read hindsight 20-20.

    Further, there is an old oak tree in the back of that old house and goes back to the civil war era. That is according to Forestry specialist. One huge tree. Alot of fire wood in that old tree.

  12. bigdraws Says:

    Thanks rip. Looking forward to it.

  13. bigdraws Says:

    Patrick Willis is coming up on the Chris Myers show for those of you who can pick it up.
