    Where there is a will, there is a way for FSU to choke against Miami.

    Thug U has to live up to its reputation. Some people just take things for granted and dont realize that they were handed the world on a silver platter. All they have to do is stay in school, make smart decisions, and play football...or any other sport that is paying for them to get an education.

    I wouldn't say all of that. All athletes work very hard to make it to the college level, and many of them come from very tough childhoods. Every man is responsible for his actions, but to say these athletes are handed the world on a silver platter seems to be a bit of an exageration.

    Have you seen the silver platters they use now? They're not nearly as nice as the old ones.:yelwink2:

    Are you talking about the aluminum platters coated in Silver? Or is that faux-silver?

    I heard the new platters are so cheap, they call them Phil Silvers.
