The Cult – She Sells Sanctuary

I was at a frat house at Ole Miss in the fall of 1990 the first time I heard this song. A band was playing it live after a football game and I instantly fell in love with it. Growing up in South Mississippi there weren’t any alternative radio stations so I’d never heard any of the music I soon fell in love with.

Jimi Hendrix – Once I Had A Woman

Didn’t know this song before it came on streaming via the Apple Music channel I was listening to this morning at the St. Louis airport. Sometimes life’s randomness isn’t random at all.

Lord, I had a woman
Lord knows she was good to me in every way
Yes, I had a woman
A real woman
Lord, she gave me loven both night and day
My sun shine
Whoo hoo
For my woman
Or else or else
Its going to take me one more day
If it takes me
She went way down in dallas
Way down in texas land
Lord she had me wrapped around her wrist and around her finger baby
Like a ring wrapped around a finger of a severed hand
I’m lookin’ for my dallas honey bee
Who can you be
Who can you be
Oooh hoo hoo help me
Help me look for her
Oh yeah

Maybe one or two of our players…

So this is a pretty crazy statement coming from any FBS Coach but Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly? Notre Dame is a school with extremely high academic standards, but only 1-2 players currently on scholarship could actually get into the school without being good at sportsball? Is he trying to cover his own ass if half the team gets suspended or is this for real?

“I think we recognized that all of my football players are at-risk — all of them — really… Honestly, I don’t know that any of our players would get into the school by themselves right now with the academic standards the way they are. Maybe one or two of our players that are on scholarship.”

So I guess Vanderbilt is the only SEC school that has academic standards and admissions as high or higher than Notre Dame? In this one study I found, Vandy was 10th hardest to get into while Notre Dame was 32nd. For reference, Alabama ranked #261 and my alma mater, Ole Miss, #387.

DFW Craft Brews


I need to put a post together with my 5-6 Dallas favorites, but until then, enjoy this post from Dallas Eater.

12 Essential DFW Craft Beers

You never forget your first. Temptress, that is. No one simply likes the Temptress; we’re all infatuated with it. It’s even been more-or-less statistically proven to be the most beloved beer in all of DFW.
