I was a part of the Texas Club for some time.  I hear they were an active club in past years, but when I was there, no one really did anything.  Well, we did have a rinky-dink website and email list.

I hung a Texas flag in my dorm room every year.

I'm not sure that's something you should be proud of
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honorary_whites

I'm not.  My intention was to point out its absurdity.

Wow I did not know about this phenomenon in South Africa.  If the apartheidists wanted to distinguish between us and the Japanese, all they needed to refer to was this hand dandy guide from Time magazine.

That Time piece is on display in a propaganda exhibit at the World War II museum in New Orleans, which is quite an experience.

Not sure how I would be treated in Asia.  I have an impressive mustache, laugh at the wrong time, but am retaining a decent amount of moisture as I age.  With just a slight diet adjustment I could do the sumo.

Is that museum as good as people are saying? When we were there for the Womens Final Four (minus Stanford) it seemed like around half the people visiting NOLA were there to see the WWII Museum.

I'm a charter member of the WW II Museum and recommend it without reservation to anyone interested in that era.  For many of us on the board, our parents and/or grandparents lived through that time.  Visits provide me with historical context for personal experiences told by family members.

Geaux Cardinal!

That WWII Museum is awesome.  2nd best thing in New Orleans after the food.  I put it ahead of the boozing.

So who is more likely to Stanford, Terrence Alexander or Kendall Randolph?

Must say I was impressed by Alexander's season to date highlights.

If game atmosphere will influence Solomon Thomas at all, I think this was a fine game for him to attend.

Was it me, or did I hear during the broadcast that the defense did not practice against a simulated hurry-up offense?

With this game, Solomon Thomas knows that Stanford takes its defense seriously.  Still, Stanford could have used some more pass rush in the second half.  They did *just* enough to win...

The more I watch of Joey Alfieri the more I think he can have in impact at RB as a freshman. Anyone else agree?

True Frosh or Redshirt?  I know he plays both positions, but isn't he recruited as a LB?  What makes you think he will be better than Son of Ed? Or for that matter Son of Barry. With the amount of depth we have at RB nowadays combined with the complexity of the playbook, a frosh making an impact is a tall order.  I hope you are right because that means he is a stud.
