Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

SEC gives official OK to instant replay I have always been a bit skeptical of instant replay, but it's been around long enough now to where most of the kinks have been solved. And let's face it--sometimes a call is wrong. It wouldn't be a big deal if there was no such thing as television, with multitudes of cameras pointed at the obvious mistakes. In high school and itty-bitty college ball, no one has as close a view as the officials (most of the time), and without cameras, no one is really in any better position to question a call than anyone else. You grudgingly accept it and offer to carry the referees to the eye doctor, and then go on. But in big time college ball, just like in the pros, missed calls at crucial times can have a big impact on the money that colleges can haul in. And really, isn't that what's really important in all this, the money?
Sure it is.
