Today's process is God's faithfulness to his promise.
We're compelled by Jesus to love his people. The idea that you can love Jesus but hate his people just shouldn't be.
It's not quite a forgotten craft but it's the area of the game where we have been most reluctant to get involved, in terms of the specialist help the fast bowlers have received. I have got to convey a basic message about the mindset of a spin bowler, engender an interest in spin bowling and a culture that allows it to flourish. I'm not sure that exists at the moment.
Our focus has been on the 33 per cent but we ignore the 67 per cent at our peril. I don't see why we can't be as effective as finger-spin bowlers or as wrist-spinners. There is a place for the finger-spinner who can spin the ball prodigiously. We need to think of ourselves as attacking spin bowlers.
My senior year at Central (1971-72) was the last year of Central High School.
Coach Battle was a good coach. I think he may have ended up being a great coach if he hadn't been so young when he was hired.
Coach Battle was more to himself, not quite as vocal, very methodical and businesslike. Coach Majors was real vocal, with a lot of energy.
The quarterback was Condredge Holloway part of the time, but Randy Wallace and Pat Ryan also played. Larry Seivers was my roommate. He was a two-time All-America (receiver) while I was there. Stanley Morgan was a tailback and wingback from South Carolina. He ran back kickoffs. He was a great football player. The first day I saw him I said, 'oh,' because I was a cornerback and would have to defend him in practice. He could play today. Andy Spiva still holds the record for the most tackles in a career.
The size of the athletes, especially in the line of scrimmage, are bigger and stronger.
Kids coming out of high school are coached better today. Nothing against the coaches I had in high school; I thought they were great coaches. But everything is so specialized now. I watch Gary Rankin (Riverdale head football coach). He was a teammate of mine at Tennessee. (Riverdale) has a different game plan for everybody they played.
the recent high profile of bad behavior among passengers has meant that no airline is prepared to accept this sort of behavior.
but as you delve into the catalog, you find some real gems. In a work like 'Out of My Hands,' he has a social consciousness. My take on it is that, for now, people feel as if they don't have any control of themselves.
