    I am a real Redneck from Wakulla County with no intentions of apologizing for it. Actually, I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Old Dominion University in Virginia after I was honorably discharged from the US Navy. Also, I served 2 years active duty in the US Marine Corp. Unlike you, I never did "take a liking" to FSU.

        ""take a liking"" I've never heard that phrase, must be peculiar to redneckese.

      Really? At least they have an education, which is apparently something you don't have.

    If you place a major university in "Champaign", what do you expect? (see U of Illinois)

      It seems like Athens is a better city for a party school, they took the #1 and #2 spot.

    Looks like the Taxpay Yours are getting their money's worth from the Taxpay Yours funded military schools. Those dimwitted FSU students protesting Koch Bros. generosity.
