NCAA Football (and BBQ Thread)

Filed under College Football, Open thread, Patriotism, September 11, Sports at September 11th, 2010 - 11:00 am

This will be weekly, every Saturday after the lecture is the open NCAA thread for those of us watching football and not wanting to soil the respectable threads with cries of ‘Hook ‘em Horns’ or ‘Soooeeeee Piggie!’ and we sure don’t want to run Ralphie through a serious thread! Some of our writers would get really mad.

Its week 2 in this very young and already interesting College Football Season. The Auburn Mississippi State game was more fun than i thought it would be with the War Eagles Holding on for the win at the Bulldogs.  Friday night’s let down was Marshall once again blowing a lead and losing to the WV Mountaineers. Marshall had the Mountaineers at home, on this the 40th anniversary of the plane crash that killed the entire Marshall football team and they blew it.

And the rankings agree in all polls, Alabama is #1, Ohio State #2, and the boys from the smurf turf Boise State are #3! Watch out for Boise State….

So onto Saturday: Today’s top match-ups are 22 Georgia at 24 South Carolina at noon.  There are three 3:0pm games worth looking at: first is 17 FSU at 10 Oklahoma, the rematch of the 2000 national championship in the Orange Bowl, and 12 Miami at 2 Ohio State.  Colwarrior’s favorite football teams are whomever is playing Miami Hurricanes this week and whomever was the last team to beat them. Miami, ‘the U’, AKA the criminal element should have lost the right to a football team in the 1990′s with all of the gross violations they had. And as always the Michigan at Notre Dame game, both teams are in rebuild mode. Its still a rivalry and should make for an interesting match-up for the new coach at Notre Dame.

At 7:00 pm PSU is in Tuscaloosa to play the #1ranked Alabama Crimson Tide; shades of the classic battles between Bear Bryant and Joe Paterno.:

“It’s one of those games,” said Penn State quarterback coach Jay Paterno, Joe’s son, “that the rest of the country will sit down and watch. It’s the two uniforms that haven’t changed. You know you’re watching Alabama, because of the uniforms. We’re no different. The only thing I’ll miss Saturday is not having Keith Jackson there. They should have called him and said, ‘We need you for this, baby.’”

They have played each other only 13 times. Alabama has won eight, Penn State five. Yet each program has played a pivotal role in the other’s football history. There is more than fate there. Political commentator James Carville once described the state of Pennsylvania as “Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between.”

Carville referred to the values and politics of central Pennsylvania. But he may be on to something. For some 40 years, the Alabama Football Fan Club of Bridgeport, Pa., has made an annual pilgrimage to a game in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The club will be there Saturday night.

One of the Crimson Tide’s most beloved players, quarterback Joe Namath, grew up in Beaver Falls, Pa.

I’m afraid JoePa will not walk out of Tuscaloosa with a win this time. PSU has a very promising and exciting freshman quaterback and an inexperienced O line.  Vegas is giving PSU 12, its hard to say when Coach Saban will have mercy on PSU and call of the Tide.

As an aside, today, we are not forgetting 9-11. We are BBQing, flyin’ the flags, and lookin’ at football while keeping an eye on the muzz. In the end, I am confident that our side, the side of freedom and liberty, will triumph over the fascism and evil that is Islam.

****sep 11 ‘where were you when it happened’ thread was saturday morning 11 sep 0800-1200, we would like to collect and share some memories…write your story for everyone and post it up for history****

please return to your regularly scheduled thread.

    I’m looking forward to the PSU-Alabama game.

    Some of these early season NCAA matchups are ridiculous IMO.

    What, for instance, does Pitt stand to gain from playing New Hampshire?

    If they win, they SHOULD have, and nothing was learned.
    If they lose, their program takes a devastating morality hit.

    Best case scenario in my mind?

    They LOSE, which forces trustees to push the AD to finally fire the failure that has been Dave Wannstache, consistent underachiever who always has the horses but can’t make it work.

    Football! Yeah baby, yeah! Notre Dame & Michigan should be a terrific game.
    Michigan thrashed Connecticut last week & ND looked really good against Purdue. The Irish look strong at QB, the running & passing game & the defense. It looks like they have found their coach.
    ND is at home with Touchdown Jesus, Number One Moses, the Fight Song & student body.
    I like ND by a touchdown.

    @ bar:
    Hmmm, perhaps they are. Very meaty ribs if they are!

    Hey, I’ve been wondering where you’ve been.

    Last weekend, I made three batches of jerky.

    On the third day, after 10 hours of being in the smoker, I checked on the meat and it had gotten steamy inside of my smoker and kind of steamed my meat as opposed to drying it out. I had to finish if off overnight in my dehydrator. I was kind of bummed because when it got steamy, I think it steamed off some of my smoke flavor off of the meat.

    I can’t figure out why it got steamy. The only two things I can think of are (1) there’s a little water that gets in the pan that holds the smoking chips and maybe it made it steamy (but that should have tried up I would think) or (2) it was warm in my smoker but kind of cold outside.

    I don’t know. Any ideas on what might have happened and how I can prevent that in the future? I was so upset. It seems my smoker sometimes is kind of hit and miss…

    BTW, in my continuing effort to tolerate this sore throat and cold that I’ve had, and since I’m not going anywhere today, I have made myself a BIG mug of Good Earth Sweet & Spicy tea, spiked with honey, Myers dark rum, and a splash of Disaronno. It is hot and nice on my throat and tasty.

    @ savages_girl:

    Are you using a store-bought “pre-manufactured” smoker?

    Growing up, our family had a number of problems with these devices, and us along with many of our “country” neighbors made one of these:

    Build A Grill Out Of A 55 Gallon Drum
    DYI>>> 55 Gallon Barbecue Grill
    The instructions below are for a tall standing grill, not a side grill.

    Where to get a barrel : Used steel barrels also called drums aren’t difficult to find. You can find clean ones online, local pet stores have them from time to time, or try your local feed stores. Don’t get one with any chemicals or oils that you think you can burn out! If it has a skull or a big X over a skull or something similar don’t get it. You just want a nice clean 55 gallon steel drum with removable lid. You want the drum lid to fits snuggly on top. Your local Lowes Retailer, or Home Depot will have all the other supplies that you will need.

    It’s even easier if you have or know someone who has cutting torches and/or an arc welder, but even if you don’t it’s not as hard as it looks.

    I don’t know if you’re at all “industrially inclined,” or know someone else to help if you’re not.

    We had much better results with our homemade “drum smoker” than any storebought model.

    It also depends on how much room you have.

    OOPS!!

    @ savages_girl:

    I mistakenly directed you to a “grill,” rather than a “smoker.”

    The same site provides info, and the much of the basic construction is the same.

    This site seems a bit more “smoker-friendly” and a bit simpler:

    Making of a Drum Smoker
    Smokers can be anything from garbage cans to custom steel fabricated smokers costing $1,000.00 of dollars a drum smoker is just above the cost of a garbage can and will last for many years. This design is using an automatic temperature control device, if you want to build this smoker and do not wish to purchase an ATC system, drill four 1″ holes spaced evenly around the base, 2″ up from the bottom. Then fashion a cover over each hole so that you can control the draft.

    @ savages_girl:
    I hate it when that happens. If its possible to omit the water that would help, and you want all the vents as wide open as possible. I would imagine the relative humidity outside would play a roll on how well the meat dries. Cutting back on the amount of meat could also fix the problem?

    I have had that same problem when I cram a few porkbutts into the smoker and I have to close the top vent to get the temp up. It turns into a nasty steamy mess and then my wood pucks fall apart and will not burn.

    OT- IMO great article on the state of our “movement,” and what is needed to overcome Progressivism. I’m short on time as we’re due at my Dad’s soon and I’m getting ready, but if I had time I’dwrite up a guest post because I think it’s that important.

    Money excerpt:

    One is: religious conservatives might consider that Christianity played an important role a hundred years ago in the creation and growth of the progressive movement. That fact alone is enough to show that the contemporary secularism they detect and decry has little to do with our current problems. They might also consider that there are literally millions of Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, and the merely indifferent or confused who also want the blessings of liberty for themselves and their families.

    Similarly, the libertarian-minded should give serious thought to whether “anything goes” (provided only that no one initiates coercion) is the alpha and omega of a sound program for a free, just society. That subjectivism was, after all, the rallying cry of the 1960s, which midwifed so much of what we currently ail from. There’s no escaping the fact that all political decisions are ultimately moral choices, selections among competing values, and some really are objectively better than others.

    I hate to say it, but you can not beat an electric smoker for consistent quality each and every time. My electric smoker beats anything hands down and the lazy ease of use is the best part. And I have more versatility in that I can cold smoke, you can’t do that with a wood or charcoal smoker.

    I really hated having family and friends over and all of the sudden my fire would just go out or get to low. And then it would get to high as I tried to recover. The food still came out good, but I wanted the best.

    Here’s how it went down. I was hauling a stack of rotten firewood from behind the pump house to a burn pile down the hill. I had already made about 7 round trips when I started feeling breathless. I went inside and told my wife to get herself ready because she might have to take me to the hospital. While she was upstairs, I started feeling increasing pressure in my chest and was really panting for air. No real pain, just very heavy pressure on my chest. I told her we need to go now. It’s about an 8 mile drive to the nearest hospital. We got there and they put me in an ambulance and took me to one of the big hospitals in downtown Austin. They kept asking me about the pain, but all I can remember was the elephant standing on my chest.

    I hope you’re doing better, and GREAT JOB on adjusting your diet appropriately!

    The most important thing to cut back on, ironically, is SUGAR.

    Lean meat is NOT bad. It contains amino acids such as carnitine that are good for your heart and your general health.

    Dunno why, but sugar seems to trigger the body to produce more cholesterol, plus it can lead to diabetes.

    If you aren’t allergic to fish, and if you like it, eat fish as often as you can afford it. I loooove fish.

    If you drink alcohol, red wine is best. It contains something (I forget what) that is good for your heart and your general health.

    I would like that 9-11 thread to get more exposure. Not everybody was at their computer when it was up. Depending on their time zone, people were probably sleeping, running errands, eating breakfast, and so forth. Americans in Alaska and Hawaii probably didn’t see the thread.

    when that happened, did you know what it was?
    I always wondered if I was having a heart attack, if I would now immediately or do you just not feel good or what. I guess it just depends on how bad it is (like if it doesn’t kill you or knock you unconscious)… it must’ve been scary…
    Here’s how it went down. I was hauling a stack of rotten firewood from behind the pump house to a burn pile down the hill. I had already made about 7 round trips when I started feeling breathless. I went inside and told my wife to get herself ready because she might have to take me to the hospital. While she was upstairs, I started feeling increasing pressure in my chest and was really panting for air. No real pain, just very heavy pressure on my chest. I told her we need to go now. It’s about an 8 mile drive to the nearest hospital. We got there and they put me in an ambulance and took me to one of the big hospitals in downtown Austin. They kept asking me about the pain, but all I can remember was the elephant standing on my chest.

    Wow.

    I’ve had bad asthma attacks from exertion, but that’s a different sensation entirely. It’s good that you recognized the symptoms.

    OMG -- to DIE for!

    It’s a recipe I got from our corporate chef at work. He made it a few times and put out samples for us and I couldn’t stop eating it. It goes down like butter.

    You have the fish deep-scaled and then cut in half lenthwise, then each half is portioned out to about 3 portions a side.

    Then it’s salted and left to sit for 24 hours. Then after that you rinse it off and then marinade it in this kazu marinade for another 24 hours. Then it’s ready for the smoker. About 5-6 hours in the smoker and viola -- smoked black cod. It is so good! Very rich.

    If you ever want my recipe, let me know.

    They determined that he was in violation of NCCAA rules against accepting cash, etc… at the time he won the Heisman. They essentially ruled that he was ineligable to be playing for his last 2 years at USC. First Heisman revocation in history.

    He is wearing a black ribbon on his sleeve in memory of the victims of 9/11.
    It’s pity others players didn’t think of that.

    OT, but important:

    NRA Challenges Constitutionality Of Federal Handgun Ban For Law Abiding 18-20 Year-Olds

    The NRA is challenging federal laws that prohibit law-abiding Americans 18-20 years of age from legally purchasing a handgun through a federally licensed firearm dealer. The case was filed Tuesday evening in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas Lubbock Division. James D’Cruz of Lubbock, TX is the plaintiff in this case.

    “In Heller and McDonald, the U.S. Supreme Court clearly stated that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for all law-abiding Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “That right is not limited only to Americans 21 years of age and older. Indeed, throughout our nation’s history, adults beginning at age 18 have served in the military and fought for this country with honor. But while the Supreme Court has consistently made clear that the federal government cannot ban or unduly restrict sales of items protected by the Constitution, the federal government continues to prohibit these adults from purchasing handguns from federally licensed dealers, which represent the largest and most accessible means of purchasing handguns.”

    The suit asserts: “At 18 years of age, law-abiding citizens in this country are considered adults for almost all purposes and certainly for the purposes of the exercise of fundamental constitutional rights.” Indeed, at 18, citizens are eligible (and male citizens could be conscripted) to serve in the military--to fight and die by arms for the country. Yet, Section 922(b)(1) prohibits law-abiding adults in this age group from lawfully purchasing — from the most prevalent and readily available source — what the Supreme Court has called “the quintessential self-defense weapon” and “the most popular weapon chosen by Americans for self-defense in the home.”

    The plaintiff, Mr. D’Cruz, is well-trained in the proper handling and use of firearms, including handguns. His initial training was with his grandfather, a World War II veteran, who wanted his grandchildren to understand the proper and safe techniques for use and storage of firearms. Mr. D’Cruz received further training from his father and as a member of the Navy Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps, where he achieved the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. During his junior and senior years of high school, Mr. D’Cruz was a member of the JROTC’s marksmanship team, and as member of that team has competed in regional and national marksmanship competitions. Mr. D’Cruz received numerous awards, including a first place medal for marksmanship, in a regional competition. Mr. D’Cruz also received a Foreign Legion unit award for marksmanship.

    The case is D’Cruz v. BATFE.

    If you don’t think Obama is deliberately exporting jobs, read this:

    U.S. Backs $1B Loan to Mexico for Oil Drilling Despite Obama Moratorium

    Published September 11, 2010

    Despite President Obama’s moratorium on U.S. deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. Export-Import Bank intends to guarantee $1 billion in loans to PEMEX, the Mexican state oil company, to bolster the company’s oil drilling in the region.

    The bank, which is the official American export credit agency, loaned more than $1 billion to PEMEX in 2009 — when the company was the bank’s largest borrower — in support of its drilling activities. That year, the bank also guaranteed two loans totaling $300 million made by a commercial lender.

    The latest request comes during a drilling moratorium that was first imposed by Obama in May to find out what was the cause behind the April 20 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion killed 11 workers and led to 206 million gallons of oil spewing from BP’s undersea well.

    So we are guaranteeing loans to Mexico to do deep water drilling in the Gulf while not allowing American companies to do deep water drilling in the Gluf. Obama isn’t the first post-Americans President. He is full-on anti-American.

    Good. I want to see a suit on short-barreled rifles and shotguns. Therer was a case in the early ’90s where the Court found short-barreled rifles weren’t any special threat. Coupled with Heller and McDonald, I’d say the Constitutionality of that part of the NFA is gone. Suppressors and machineguns may be a slightly harder climb, but suppressors especially is just silly.

    And in other news, the Obama Administration has pretty much quit deporting illegals. Lovely:

    The Obama administration is changing the federal immigration enforcement strategy in ways that reduce the threat of deportation for millions of illegal immigrants, even as states such as Arizona, Colorado, Virginia, Ohio and Texas are pushing to accelerate deportations.
    The changes focus enforcement on immigrants who have committed serious crimes, an effort to unclog immigration courts and detention centers. A record backlog of deportation cases has forced immigrants to wait an average 459 days for their hearings, according to an Aug. 12 report by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which analyzes government data.

    Hey, if they kill somebody, they’lll consider deporting them! Go’Bama! Gimme some stash!!11!!

    Personally, I don’t see any reason an immigration hearing should last more than about 30 seconds, in most cases. It’s an administrative proceeding, not a trial, so the usual standards don’t apply. The burden of proof should be on the detainee, not the government.

    The hearing officer only needs to ask one question: “Can you provide proof that you entered the US legally?”

    If the answer is no, there should be a bus waiting out back for them.

    It’s the complete sovietization of the American legal process. We are paying for that 459 days either thru the costs of incarceration or the costs of the mayhem those illegals commit while they’re out on bail. Doesn’t help that we’ve got 2 new progs on the SCOTUS.

    They aren’t incarcerating them during that time. They let them go and tell them they’ll receive a notice to appear when their hearing is scheduled.

    And if they do show up, and the hearing takes place, they let them go after that, too. They mail them a notice later telling them to report for deportation.

We need to close the borders, north AND south, and make our own determinations as to who enters and who does not, and what their real status is with regards to the law.

    The white mamluk commanded a higher price than the black ‘abd because he could bring a substantial Christian ransom or be exchanged for a Muslim captive. The differing treatment of white and black slaves reflected their relative worth. The mamluk was viewed as an investment to protect, whereas the ‘abd’s value was based on his labor as an expendable means of production. Where there was back-breaking work to be done in the Arab world, black slaves were made to do it. From ninth-century Iraqi land reclamation projects to fourteenth-century Saharan salt and copper mines, black Africans toiled under the worst conditions. White slaves were rarely assigned to such arduous tasks; they were usually household servants.

    James H. Sweet, “The Iberian Roots of American Racist Thought.” The William and Mary Quarterly 3rd Ser., Vol. 54, No. 1 (Jan., 1997), p. 145

    I guess James Sweet is a bigoted Islamophobe for stating in the above passage that black slaves in the Islamic world were horribly mistreated, and for claiming (in the text from which the quote is excerpted) that ant-black African racism and slavery in America ultimately derives from the period of Islamic domination in the Iberian peninsula (adopted by the conquistadors from the oppressors of their ancestors and passed on to the colonial American slave-owners.)

    And I like having an appreciative audience…

    Was Benjamin Franklin an Islamophobe?

    ON THE SLAVE TRADE.

    Reading in the newspapers the speech of Mr Jackson in Congress, against meddling with the affair of slavery, or attempting to mend the condition of slaves, it put me in mind of a similar speech, made about one hundred years since, by Sidi Mahomet Ibrahim, a member of the Divan of Algiers, which may be seen in Martin’s account of his consulship, 1687. It was against granting the petition of the sect called Erika, or Purists, who prayed for the abolition of piracy and slavery, as being unjust. Mr Jackson does not quote it: perhaps he has not seen it. If, therefore, some of its reasonings are to be found in his eloquent speech, it may only show that men’s interests operate, and are operated on, with surprising similarity, in all countries and climates, whenever they are under similar circumstances. The African speech, as translated, is as follows :—

    “Alla Bismillah, &c. God is great, and Mahomet is his prophet.

    Have these Erika considered the consequences of granting their petition! If we cease our cruises against the Christians, how shall we be furnished with the commodities their countries produce, and which are so necessary for us! If we forbear to make slaves of their people, who, in this hot climate, are to cultivate our lands! Who are to perform the common labours of our city, and of our families! Must we not then be our own slaves! And is there not more compassion and more favour due to us Mussulmen than to the Christian dogs! We have now above fifty thousand slaves in and near Algiers. This number, if not kept up by fresh supplies, will soon diminish, and be gradually annihilated. If, then, we cease taking and plundering the infidels’ ships, and making slaves of the seamen and passengers, our lands will become of no value, for want of cultivation; the rents of houses in the city will sink one half; and the revenues of government, arising from the share of prizes, must be totally destroyed. And for what! To gratify the whim of a whimsical sect, who would have us not only forbear making more slaves, but even manumit those we have. But who is to indemnify their masters for the loss! Will the state do it! Is our treasury sufficient! Will the Erika do it can they do it! Or would they, to do what they think justice to the slaves, do a greater injustice to the owners! And if we set our slaves free, what is to be done with them! Few of them will return to their native countries—they know too well the greater hardships they must there be subject to. They will not embrace our holy religion: they will not adopt our manners: our people will not pollute themselves by intermarrying with them. Must we maintain them as beggars in our streets; or suffer our properties to be the prey of their pillage! for men accustomed to slavery will not work for a livelihood when not compelled. And what is there so pitiable in their present condition! Were they not slaves in their own countries! Are not Spain, Portugal, France, and the Italian states, governed by despots, who hold all their subjects in slavery, without exception! Even England treats her sailors as slaves; for they are, whenever the government pleases, seized and confined in ships of war, condemned not only to work, but to fight, for small wages, or a mere subsistence, not better than our slaves are allowed by us. Is their condition, then, made worse by their falling into our hands ! No: they have only exchanged one slavery for another; and I may say a better: for here they are brought into a land where the sun of Islamism gives forth its light, and shines in full splendour, and they have an opportunity of making themselves acquainted with the true doctrine, and thereby saving their immortal souls. Those who remain at home have not that happiness. Sending the slaves home, then, would be sending them out of light into darkness.

    I repeat the question, what is to be done with them! I have heard it suggested, that they may be planted in the wilderness, where there is plenty of land for them to subsist on, and where they may flourish as a free state. But they are, I doubt, too little disposed to
    labour without compulsion, as well as too ignorant to establish good government; and the wild Arabs would soon molest and destroy, or again enslave them. While serving us, we take care to provide them with every thing; and they are treated with humanity. The labourers in their own countries are, as I am informed, worse fed, lodged, and clothed. The condition of most of them is therefore already mended, and requires no farther improvement. Here their lives are in safety. They are not liable to be impressed for soldiers, and forced to cut one another’s Christian throats, as in the wars of their own countries. If some of the religious mad bigots, who now tease us with their silly petitions, have, in a fit of blind zeal, freed their slaves, it was not generosity, it was not humanity, that moved them to the action; it was from the conscious burden of a load of sins, and hope, from the supposed merits of so good a work, to be excused from damnation. How grossly are they mistaken, in imagining slavery to be disavowed by the Alcoran! Are not the two precepts, to quote no more, ‘ Masters, treat your slaves with kindness—slaves, serve your masters with cheerfulness and fidelity,’ clear proofs to the contrary !— Nor can the plundering of infidels be in that sacred book forbidden; since it is well known from it, that God has given the world, and all that it contains, to his faithful Mussulmen, who are to enjoy it of right, as fast as they conquer it. Let us then bear no more of this detestable proposition, the manumission of Christian slaves, the adoption of which would, by depreciating our lands and houses, and thereby depriving so many good citizens of their properties, create universal discontent, and provoke insurrections, to the endangering of government, and producing general confusion. I have, therefore, no doubt that this wise council will prefer the comfort and happiness of a whole nation of true believers, to the whim of a few Erika, and dismiss their petition.”

    The result was, as Martin tells us, that the Divan came to this resolution:—” That the doctrine, that the plundering and enslaving the Christians is unjust, is at best problematical; but that it is the interest of this state to continue the practice, is clear: therefore, let the petition be rejected.”—And it was rejected accordingly.

    And since like motives are apt to produce, in the minds of men, like opinions and resolutions, may we not venture to predict, from this account, that the petitions to the parliament of England for abolishing the slave trade, to say nothing of other legislatures, and the debates upon them, will have a similar conclusion.

    And in other news, the Obama Administration has pretty much quit deporting illegals. Lovely:

    The Obama administration is changing the federal immigration enforcement strategy in ways that reduce the threat of deportation for millions of illegal immigrants, even as states such as Arizona, Colorado, Virginia, Ohio and Texas are pushing to accelerate deportations.
    The changes focus enforcement on immigrants who have committed serious crimes, an effort to unclog immigration courts and detention centers. A record backlog of deportation cases has forced immigrants to wait an average 459 days for their hearings, according to an Aug. 12 report by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which analyzes government data.

    Hey, if they kill somebody, they’lll consider deporting them! Go’Bama! Gimme some stash!!11!!

    Does that mean, in order to get each illegal deported, yet another American has to be victimized or killed?

    :evil:

    I am truly disgusted.

    @ 1389AD:

    I’m not positive killing an American will get you deported. I only speculate that it might, in Obama’s America. Then again, if they kill a white American, then it is the opprerssed striking the oppressors, so Obama’s probably cool with that.

    Post Game Analysis: The boys lived up to the hype, however the special teams coach should be publicly flogged on the corner of 12th Street and High (Columbus, OH, main campus) for public comsumption. Two TD returns in a game is grounds for dismissal IMHO.
