    SabreHorn, I didn’t remember that article but my buddy did. He remembers the following snippet about Bradley, “He can throw with his right or left arm, kick with his right or left foot, and think with his right or left brain.”

    Bill actually threw the game winning pass left-handed to win the district championship. I thought it was against Athens, but he said it was Longview

    "Bradley, however, had only himself to blame for much of it. At 185 and 5 feet 11, a right-handed passer and left-footed kicker, he had already proved he could dunk a basketball with either hand, broad-jump 23 feet in his first attempt, play shortstop and switch-hit at the plate so proficiently that he had turned down a $40,000 bonus from the Detroit Tigers. On the football field, he could throw with either hand, kick with cither foot and, as one writer put it, "think with either brain."

    Dominoes....If Mack had not convinced Ricky to stay and not win the Heisman, Chris would have never switched commitments from UT to UT. I'll give Ricky the credit for VY by defacto. Simms committed at the very end of the recruiting cycle that year.

    Very interesting Manning story from local radio yesterday.

    Archie called David McWilliams saying that Cooper Manning wanted to play at Texas and if he gave him a scholarship that Peyton would likely follow him to Austin. McWilliams agreed to give him a scholarship, but was fired and Mackovic wouldn't even return their calls. Later Eli wanted to come to Texas but something happened and he didn't come.

    We very well could have had Cooper, Peyton, Eli and Arch as almuni. The family has loved Austin and UT for decades.

    Archie probably told him he'd rather have a Michelob instead of the swill from Johnnies wine cellar.

    If there is one thing I could appreciate about Mackovic, it was his wine acumen.

    He had one? He still hasn't answered my question I posed in Charlottesville, when he once again abandoned his team to pace alone between the bench and the stands. (See also loss to Rice and aTm)

    I merely asked him, "Oh, John, say John, what Chardonnay goes with a blowout".

    Quote from Rick Lantz to me when I arrived in C'ville - "Here you go, 4 on the fifty behind the Texas bench, high enough to get a good view of the *** kickin comin your way."

    Walking into the UVA locker room after the game to congratulate them was a little tough, particularly when Todd White left the media table to walk past them to pick me up. Rick was an east coast version of Leon Fuller.

    He told me if a bottle of wine didn't cost $100 it was not a good wine. He knew as much about wine as he did computers.
    Nothing.

    I’m pretty sure a dry red — pinot noir? — pairs well with embarrassing failure.

    That hire was all Cunningham. The "Committee of 300" met and Mackovic was discussed in detail, particularly by lettermen that had played for him in the NFL. It was even stated that the Chiefs' players went to Lamar with a basic message "if he comes back, we won't".

    Mackovic's knowledge about wine reminds me of those guys in El Paso that bought wine in bulk, ran it through their "process" and won the blue ribbon at the SFO Wine Competition. It was basically recycled box wine.

    If you FAIL to find a good bottle of wine by spending $100 a shot, you're really pathetic. The trick is to find really good wine (I won't go into what I believe makes for a good wine) for significantly less.

    SN,

    While I agree with you, we should eliminate restaurants from the selection process. First thing I do in a "new" restaurant is look at the wine list for recognizable names, then the prices.

    Kirkland Pinot Grigio is $4.99 a bottle. It’s damn good.

    I am a member of three Napa wine clubs. I serve the Kirkland all of the time and my guests love it. They are shocked when they find out how much it costs.

    Before there was LSD, there was Thunderbird wine, the original hallucinogenic drug.

    I drank the real deal in 9th grade: MD 20/20. It went up about as fast as it went down.

    Full bodied but dry Bordeaux...but go with a cheap one since it will burn like the loss.

    Typically a bottle will be triple retail price, and if offered by the glass, a single glass will be roughly equal to the price of a bottle at retail. I almost never drink wine at a restaurant because I know what I can buy it for, and I am happy to cook my own nice meal to go with a better than average bottle.

    For a relatively modest price ($100-175?) you can buy a wine-making kit, then buy grape juice from around the world & produce your own high quality low preservative / preservative free wine that rivals much of what can be bought retail or in resturaunts. I made my own wine for several yrs. Got rave reviews from my friends, saved ton of $ for good wine & had a lot of fun doing it. Been a while since I vintnered, so I'm out of touch with cost, but I know you can make a very good product at a fraction of the cost compared to retail. And it's a lot of fun.

    Back to the thread topic: did you guys hear about Arch Manning to Texas?

    He’s a pretty good QB I hear, maybe had some family involved in the game at one time.
