East Tennessee State Buccaneers

  • Originality: (2) Only one other DI school has the nickname, and Charleston Southern is right on the coast, not 300 miles inland.
  • Presentation: (1) Bucky lost a point for looking like a Klingon. If he shaved the goat he’d lose another point for looking like Cantiflas.
  • Authenticity: (1.5) Bucky is supposed to represent the legendary Jean Paul LeBucque who may or may not have navigated underground channels as far as present-day Johnson City. I’m docking half a point for possible revisionist history.
  • Intimidation Factor: (2) One look into those scurvy eyes would fill up even William Shatner’s underpants.
  • Political Incorrectness: (2) Congratulations on retiring not only the Teacher nickname, but the Parrot sidekick “Pepper.”
  • TOTAL: (8.5) Solid.

    , you had no worry with Philadelphia as there was no way they were going to control the Dallas devefsine line. The same went for the Jets versus the Bengals, the Jets had the stronger defense and you saw what happened. I told someone just yesterday that the teams with the best defenses will go the furthest in these playoffs. That means Dallas has a very legitimate chance of going all the way to the Superbowl. Just watch what they do to Favre next week, he will be harassed mercilessly and Dallas will win again. I expect they will end up playing the Saints in the final for the NFC. On the other side watch out for the Jets, they have a great defense. I think between the Colts and Chargers whoever’s defense plays best for the next couple of games will get to the Superbowl. So my predictions at this point are that in the NFC it will be Dallas or New Orleans, whoever has the best defense. In the AFC it will be either the Chargers, Colts or Jets, again, whoever’s defense plays best for the next couple of games. Tough defense always beats a good offense when it comes to crunch time!Robert

    Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aisnrpig writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Kudos!
