Unless you're also arguing that the next time ESPN mentions Tom Osbourne in an article about football coaches that they introduce him as "former political conservative house member Tom Osbourne..." rather than "former Nebraska coach Tom Osbourne..." then I'm not really following anymore.
I hear you. And yes, I'll cop to maybe being a bit irrational about this, and I've probably helped this thread last half again longer than it should have, BUT - I still don't have to like it.
I'm sorry I've got such a burr up my ass over this guy. I'm done talking about him now.
