    They’re probably a lot better at multi-variable calculus than our wives.

    Below are some very good Rice players in a generally historically sorry program (other than under Jess Neely):

    Tommy Kramer QB mid 1970s

    Trevor Cobb RB early 1990s

    Dicky Moegle RB 1950s (most famous for being tackled by a Bama player coming off the sidelines in the Cotton Bowl--yes Rice used to make the Cotton Bowl sometimes under Neely)

    Aaron Stanley S early-mid 1990s (led Rice defense in beating Mackovic's Longhorns)

    Cool helmets - with the screechy bird owl, instead of the fancy "R".

    I like their Athenian owl logo, too. My stepson was in grad school there. Nice campus.

    Little known fact: those 1,000s of gorgeous huge oak trees on Rice's campus weren't there when the Institute was founded. Back then it was a prairie with few trees. Goes to show that with 30 feet deep topsoil and 50 inches of rain per year (sometimes less, sometime a LOT more) you can grow some enormous trees in not too much time.

    I'm not much of a gardener (to say the least), but growing up not far from Houston, I thought you could just plant a seed anywhere, do nothing much else, and huge plants or trees would just magically grow in short order (of course they come with huge weeds). I later learned it's a bit harder to grow things in most of this State.

    Sounds like Tyler Owens and/or Chris Adimora to take the Overshown role

    Well, admittedly, the voters became wary of the slashing running backs getting the award after OJ...
