CommishSlive: Thank you all for joining me on this chat. I know all of you are busy, so I'm hoping this might work out better than our last conference call did. This shouldn't take too much of your time.
StateOfMS: This is Houston. Right you are, Mike-O!
CommishSlive: That brings up a good point. Apparently the WiFi at the Highway 12 McDonald's, Starkville's sole Internet uplink, is down, so thank you to Coach Nutt for graciously allowing Coach Mullen to join him in Oxford.
HaveAGreatDay: Is this thing on?
CommishSlive: This is an Internet chat, Les. If you can see what everyone else is typing, then you're fine.
HaveAGreatDay: Ok, great. When I allowed myself to envision this chat, the decision being made to join it was only based on the fact that my computer would take on the task at hand.
WildTurkey: Whut in the Sam He-ull did yew just say? Ah know ah'm coachin at Vandabilt but no whun heuh got a werd of that.
NewBigOrange: Robbie, how did you get your drawl to come through in the chat? I need to learn how to do that.
WildTurkey: It's this vahs recanishin thing they got here at the skoo. Let's set so double the killer delete select all.
CommishSlive: Right. So, let's just move on. As you all remember, we had some trouble with a few of you criticizing officials in public last year. The toughened rule about it is still in effect. Let's go down the list of folks who got fined so I know we're all on the same page. Urban?
CommishSlive: Urban, you there?
CommishSlive: One second, folks. I'm going to see if the tech guys can reconnect us with Florida.
StacheMan: Florida's here.
CommishSlive: Steve Addazio? What are you doing here? This is a meeting for the conference's head coaches.
StacheMan: Urban didn't want to come, so he sent me instead. You know, just like the off season booster tour.
CommishSlive: Get Urban here as soon as you can. And why didn't you just answer me the first time?
StacheMan: You didn't ask for me. Hold on, he's right in the next room, one sec.
CommishSlive: Urban, you are aware that the new rules from last year are still in effect, right? You did get a fine last season.
Urb: y. g2g gt txt frm rcrt
JPhillips: Can someone buy that man a vowel? Am I right?
HeadBallCoach: I know folks call you Joker, but leave the comedy to the pros like me.
CommishSlive: Thank you gentlemen, that will be enough. Dan, you got a reprimand before the new rules took effect last year. Are you aware of the change?
StateOfMS: YesIgotit. YouknowIgottotellyou, itsalittledisorientingbeingthisfarnorth. Notusedtobeingataschoolupnorth.
Nicktator: Wow, that boy types as fast as he talks.
TheChizz: Can someone translate that into English for me? Normally I leave the tough stuff up to Gus and Ted, but they're out washing the limo.
CommishSlive: That's enough. Now Derek, you're our only newcomer and your institution had some troubles with this last year. You are aware that we require grievances to be aired in private, right?
StateOfMS: This is Houston. I gotta go stare down a class of incoming recruits. You know how I do. It inspires them. Anything you see next is all coming from Dan.
CommishSlive: That's OK. We're almost done here.
StateOfMS: JUST KIDDING> THIS IS HOUSTON I"M GOING TO GO PLAN HOW TO LOSE THE EGG BOWL BY 50 POINTS AGAIN
CommishSlive: Dan, that's not appropriate. I don't want to have to give out any fines before the season starts.
StateOfMS: WHO IS DAN??? MY MEMORY IS STILL BAD THANKS TO THE BEATING I TOOK IN STARKVILLE LAST NOVEMBER
Nicktator: I don't have time for this.
HaveAGreatDay: Anyone know how to change the font to Comic Sans? It's my default on Word and this Arial thing is boring.
WildTurkey: Whut is this fahnt thing you talkin about?
CommishSlive: That will about wrap it up from here. Thanks for your time.
