I guess the Dominican nuns that taught me were really penguins....And I thought they were storm troopers.

Logical fallacy. 8)
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Maybe I just didn't follow just what the logical fallacy was....

More often on a board is a phallacy.

A spurious statement about the size of one's penis....sometimes expressed indirectly.

I so dislike cold weather.
"No, no!" said the Queen. "Sentence first–verdict afterward."
"Stuff and nonsense!" said Alice "The idea of having the sentence first!"
"Hold your tongue!" said the Queen, turning purple.
"I won't!" said Alice.
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice."

Good Lord!!! Ha,ha,ha....... I read where they are taking suggestions for the design of the College Football Playoff Championship Trophy. A phallacy suggestion might make the grade, especially this day and time, but doubtful there would be many who would carrying on the Time Honored Tradition of kissing it after a victory. :lol:

Autopsy showed he had sickle cell trait syndrome which contributed to his death....

Parents sued the school for $2 million.

Then it got crazy...his twin brother Devard, also played on the team and was found to also have sickle cell....the FSU doctors now would not clear him to be member of the team.

"FSU had refused to medically clear Devard to play this fall. An autopsy conducted by the Leon County Medical Examiner's office did not find a conclusive cause for Devaughn Darling's death, but discovered he possessed a sickle-cell trait that has been linked in some studies to sudden-exercise death. Devard Darling, 19, possesses the same sickle-cell trait.

FSU Athletic Director Dave Hart said Devard could've stayed at FSU on scholarship but wouldn't have been allowed to play football.

The parents now were upset that their kid wouldn't be playing....

Long story short...the kid transferred to Washington State...played in the NFL.

Parents received $1.8 million settlement.



Never heard this. Wow. I find it amazing that the parents were upset/surprised that a school wouldn't let their son play after they sued the school.

Lawsuits and Insurance Premiums are a greater threat to the future of College Football than the eyesight of university presidents.
