Furman's 5th year qb got knocked out of the game Saturday for the 'dins and the back up qb is prone to fumbling. However in my history of FU games we have done better before we knocked out the starter and we did poorly with his replacement, who was often a change of pace. The first one that comes to mind was when we knocked out Ingle Martin. And then lost.

Nothing gets my hate-meter pegged like FU.....certainly not VMI.  I had to live through the "8 & counting, 9 & counting, etc" streak while attending in the late 80s. 

If you granted me but one win a year....it would be against F-puke.  If we're ever up 48-0 after scoring a TD with .02 seconds to go in the 4th quarter with an extra point before us…. I say go for two (and only because they won't let you go for three).

Sound off knobs!  "Beat furman, beat furman, beat the he1111111 outta furman!!!!!!!"

Defense wins this one. Unfortunately, not ours. Furman takes this one.

Agree. I HATE them. Not sure the current Corps knows or cares a thing about our history.

The VMI upperclassmen make our upperclassmen look comatose and have for a long time.

And another thing.......VMI uniforms look sharp, tailored, and the Keydets wear them with pride. 

Our cadet uniforms look like crap and un-tailored, and our guys wear them with seemingly no pride.
Noticed this when I saw the VMI Keydets at our home football game against them last year.

A start would be Paluso, et. al, changing uniform suppliers. I'm sure Fechheimer (VMI's supplier and made in the USA) could do a better job than whatever company The Citadel is using now.

Fecheimer makes BDUs? Because thats all I ever see the Corps wearing. (when they arent in broken uniform... tshirts...)

Shoot, dress grays are about as scarce today as dress whites were when we were there. Maybe they should just get rid of them altogether if dress parade is the only time they have to wear them. Maybe they could save the knobs a couple thousand bucks off of that country club prohibitive tuition.

I remember the last Oyster Bowl I went to as a new alum... I think it was 91 or 92? Our Corps was relatively squared away and numerous Keydets were drunk and in broken uniforms. I can't help but think they had a come to Jesus moment in Lexington after that because they have been whipping our tails in that category ever since

The low point for me was the last time we played them in Charlotte. Our Corps looked like dogsh1t (with their mentor, a certain Commandant of exalted rank "marching" with them in a poorly fitting wrinkled uniform) and VMI's Keydets were crisp as hell. They have been taking our lunch money ever since, and quite frankly I think we gave up on the military part of "military college" so long ago that it is now culturally ingrained.

I tell classmates today not to stress over the things they see now- just be thankful that they were lucky enough to have had an opportunity to be a part of what we were a part of. Something that is now gone and is not likely to return.

I went up to VMI 2 yrs ago and there was not a lot of pride in wearing there uniform.  EVERY cadet I saw after the game going on leave or just hanging out with family had their c#nt cap barely on their head and every field jacket was unzipped. They looked like Fonzi.  But, hey, maybe that's how they wear them.  They are much greater than us.

I don't get the VMI athlete's wearing a lettermen's sweater to parade. Talk about broken uniform, that thing looks like Mark and Suzy are going to the country club to booze it up. That has to create a bold line between the athletes and the non-athletes with-in their Corps. 

Tomorrow will be close and will not be decided until the 4th quarter. Dogs win by 3 because wouldn't have it any other way.

I think some of you guys are way too harsh on our corps, to be honest.

I would also be surprised if this is anything other than a close game.

After our game at VMI two years ago, I visited their message board and found VMI grads saying how much sharper our salt and pepper looked than their unis. Bitch, bitch, bitch... Seems it’s a requirement for military school grads.
