On free speech is coming from our College's 18th President.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/carolquillen/2018/10/04/time-for-a-detox-how-the-sugar-high-of-certainty-impairs-speaking-about-speech/#3aff4c58190b

Set aside that Forbes is one step aside from wordpress.blog.instagrammaphobe, behold this closing paragraph:

"Interestingly, grappling consistently with such challenges would invite all of us who speak, on campuses and off, to use language with care, to recognize crucial distinctions, to base claims on facts and to put forth analytically rigorous, nuanced arguments. Free speech will speak for itself."

This is basketball related. Here is an example of a declaratory sentence:

"I call him the Microwave."

When President Quillen is done with the U of C pep rally, she should attend every session of Dr. Ingram's Milton seminar.

Free speech likes to ?.

This doesn't belong in the basketball thread.

"Curry" and "Furple" in the same article makes my ankle hurt.

Do those links in BMFC's 1st post work? I found Dr. Quillen's article, but don't want to waste my limited supply of Charlotte Observer articles by searching for the "microwave" article.

Wasn't Vinny Johnson nicknamed "The Microwave"?

Yes. Observer article appears on non-Observer platform, I believe.

This was the game where I-77 thanked Furman for their intense effort, wasn't it?

Many Nutty Buddies were consumed by Wildcat fans if that's correct.

The first time I thanked an opponent for the scrimmage was the 1/16/08 game at Furman. The second time was that next road game, at WCU. The Steph's Ankle game was the following year and it was followed by a pair of beat-downs, one to a very good Butler team and one to a terrible Citadel team. Please pardon the redundancy.

In fairness, that was a pretty good Citadel team that year. They finished 15-5 in the Socon and had 20 wins overall. Finished tied with CoC for second best conference record that year.

Yes, with a healthy Steph Davidson would have creamed them, but they weren't terrible, at least not by SoCon standards.

I rather enjoy saying nasty things to and about those who are offended by political correctness. I’m glad to accommodate.
