I think Carey vaults to No. 5 — behind the College Hall of Famers and ahead of Luppino as the best offensive player in school history. He should be a two-time consensus All-American, perhaps the Doak Walker winner, etc., etc.
As for great names for defensive linemen, you can’t make this up: Alabama has a freshman end named … Dee Liner.
He was No. 39 on your list of top 50 greatest UA football players before the season.
But you also wrote: “If he replicates his 2012 season, or comes reasonably close, Carey would vault into the top 10 on the list of best UA football players ever, perhaps the top five.”
With two games still to go (assuming win or lose against Tempe Normal, we’re bowling in Las Vegas or New Mexico), where is he now?
No. 10 — Lance Briggs
No. 9 — Byron Evans
No. 8 — Darryll Lewis
No. 7 — J...

The boehner and company along with All the supporters of, and especially the so called tea party, their Huge Debt Created, need to pay off their six years of Huge debt growth started before 9/11 and policy issues after, on the credit card! Along with the abandoning the military missions after 9/11, with cheers, with two wars rubber stamped and no bid contracts while off the books and on same credit card, with extremely little done for the veterans of, until the Obama Administration came in, the ...
With summer concerts and festivals just around the corner many fans are eager to get tickets to their favorite events. Better Business Bureau of Southern Arizona warns that buying a ticket from the wrong person could leave you outside the gates. Many tend to seek out tickets on classified sites. Unfortunately, several classified sites don’t offer […]
all rush got out of this is the code? He influenced/ tampered with the outcome of the pac12 championship only the pac 12 comish larry scott have less of a clue. pac12 needs a new comish now, larry scott must resign now!!!
I’m so glad he’s gone. A person who can say the kinds of things he said, in the position that he was in, has no business in sports. That, and the fact that I don’t believe a darn thing he’s saying. I’ll take the word of the whistle blower over Rush and Larry Scott any day. Those two “gentlemen” wreak of poor ethics. The sooner the conference can distance itself from these two men, the better.
“We must focus on cutting spending. If the conversation is starting with revenues, we’re having the wrong conversation.”
Those are the words of GOP Representative (and soon to be Senator) Tim Scott from South Carolina. He Twittered them last night, as the House GOP leadership abandoned plans to vote on “Plan B,” a proposal for avoiding the fiscal cliff. The plan, sponsored by Speaker of the House John Boehner and GOP leadership, didn’t have enough GOP support....
Suffice it to say, the gang at Fort Buckley is beaucoup bummed about last night. The entire garrison, unanimously, thinks America made a bad decision last night.
I don’t see our economy reviving, under our current leadership in Washington. The regulators are about to be unleashed. Expect businesses to cringe, shelter their assets and not expand. Soon we will feel the full effects of Obamacare. How much more of our children’s and grandchildren’s money are we going to spend on st...
Jim Kolbe: The Value of Voting GOP for Congress This Year. (Update: GOP expected to keep the House—Politico)Monday, November 5th, 2012
For more than two decades, Jim Kolbe served Tucson and southeastern Arizona in Congress. Despite Tucson’s Democrat-leanings, Kolbe was elected 11 times to represent it, and southeastern Arizona, on Capitol Hill. He was a subcommittee chairman on one of the House of Representative’s most powerful committees, the Appropriations Committee.
So, if you want to know what it takes to be an effective member of the House of Representatives—someone who can get thing...
…on the front page today, I thought I’d add this.
Next to National Review, the Weekly Standard is probably the most popular conservative news and opinion magazine in America. Bill Kristol, a well-known conservative TV pundit, is its editor.
The Standard‘s David Halper has written a story that strikes very close to home for Arizonans. Not only in its target, but in its sourcing as well. (All emphasis is added).
Richard Carmona, the former surgeon general under President George ...
The Lessons Our Kids Are Learning Nowadays: “I Want To Be a Crony!” (Best Video of the 2012 Election Cycle)…UPDATE: Cronyism in Auto BailoutSaturday, November 3rd, 2012
The commander, staff and garrison (me, myself and I) of Fort Buckley hereby present our favorite video of this election cycle: “I Want To Be A Crony,” by Chrony Chronicles.
The video opens with this foreboding message: “Our Children Used To Have Big Dreams.” Used to?
Then, it shows fresh-faced children talking about the types of dreams kids have always had:
When I grow up, I’m want to be a doctor!
I’m going to be an architect!
When I grow up, I want to work h...

Obama Administration Sits on Key Regulations
The Obama administration roared into office four years ago with an openly ambitious regulatory agenda, releasing a higher-than-usual number of major regulations in the first two years. In 2012, the number of new regulations has plummeted in a year in which the president’s regulatory policies have emerged as a major campaign theme.
Gee, I wonder why the flow of new regulations has slowed down t...

House Republicans may actually add to their majority on Election Day
The Fix now projects that the 2012 race for the House is likely to be close to a draw, and there is even a fair chance that Republicans will add to their biggest majority in six decades on Tuesday.
Below, The Fix is updating the ratings of 10 Hou...

1. Why should LD10 voters pick you?
I have clearly demonstrated the ability to bring leadership and political courage to the legislature on behalf of the re...

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY (WAFF) -
The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews from Huntsville Utilities learned they’ll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.
Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said ...
That cancer is government dependency.
That’s the shocking, dismaying opening line in George Will’s latest column, “Mugging Our Descendants.” In that column, Will echoes a fear that many Americans feel: we are building a society that feels entitled, instead of responsible. A society that’s been raised to b...
