Grumpter, you're being very naive to the historical connotations of blackface.  Blackface in the truest sense conjures up insulting stereotypes to our intelligence, abilities and vocabulary.  So for you to compare the media outrage of Steve's bitter, meatheaded comments to the outrage of people dressing in black/white face is inaccurate at best, out of order at worst.  BTW, That being said, neither of the examples mentioned are racist, one can tell when there's malicious...
Personally, I thought Bama would drop to #5, but Stanford will probably get to #2 if they beat Oregon.  I just don't trust that Ok. State will escape Bedlam undefeated.  As for Boise and the Big East, the conference is sinking like a rock.....I'd stay in the Mountain West unless the Big 12 feels like getting back to, you know, 12.  
For now, I'll chalk Stevie's comments up as the musings of a bitter old meathead.  Greg Norman, however, lost some points in my book for saying that he's never seen racism as a problem in golf.  I realize he wants to defend his friend, but come on.  He may not want to have a chat with the Charlie Siffords of the world. 
Boise has been in the discussion for so long, that I really believe that if them and one other team is undefeated, they deserve a shot.  Now if that's LSU, they'll likely walk into a buzzsaw, considering that the title game would be a de facto home game for LSU.  All this re-alignment is about being impatient if you ask me.  If Boise runs to the Big East, they'll regret it.
Definitely.  That's why I want to start volunteering with the First Tee and see if I can try to mentor a young golfer or 2.  One would think that if you're walking to a green to leave your bag on the side of the green closest to the next tee is simple, but you'd be surprised.      
Ok....allow me to play devil's advocate for a sec here.  For those on the board that mentor or teach golf to anyone (especially juniors), how many of you do any teaching concerning course management/pre-shot routine.  This in my opinion is what will help golfers play at a faster pace.   About juniors being slow, they have to learn it from somewhere, so teachers speak up
Ok Shorty.....in an effort to avoid a tit for tat   1) young lad should've come across a bit more respectfully, but 2) sometimes your posts do come across as caustic 3) just changing his profile up did not address the question.   Did not mean to offend you, but that's just my point of view  
On a non-golf related note, one of the major hospitals around here is about to implement a rule saying they won't hire you if you smoke (i.e. pre-employment tobacco screenings)
Shorty.....on the cool, the young lad gave you a dose of your own medicine.  Dominic, my advice to you would be look at your practice habits.  I know when I started playing, all I wanted to do was play, but once I started focusing on putting in some good range work, the scores began to drop.  
My vehicle of choice.....only flaw is the trunk space, not exactly golf friendly.
