I haven’t figured out how to record comments on that page. So any of your observations will have to be made here by clicking the regular “comments” line. The first regular season poll will be released Tuesday September 2.

    You haven’t played fair with the other pollsters by using Charlie’s Who’s Who picture from his aggie days. I’m happy to report Charlie has cleaned up his act a little bit; the cigars are now a thing of the past. Our elders have had a little bit of influence on him; it’s reported holding a couple of paychecks proved to be good motivation to stop the cigars. We are still working on his taste in sports coats; the aggie sartorial consultant really messed him up. Maybe we can get a burnt orange blazer on him before too long.

    As you can see from my picture, I had a pretty rough winter, but I’ll submit a new picture soon. As far as your comment Allan about me submitting my poll at 11:45 on Monday…I resemble that! Of course, I usually turned my papers in about 5 minutes before you did if I recall. And brother Dan, I think my size is a 38-30 for that blazer. This is going to be a fun fall! Gig em’
