Swine, what is the meaning behind the term “paperclips”? I grew up in southeast Arkansas…our closest neighbor were the folks from Mississippi. Thus, my complete disregard and lack of feeling for Ole Miss.
Some people also call them the Gooners. But my favorite soccer team is Arsenal FC, known as the Gunners, which in the north London dialect often becomes the Gooners. So to me a Gooner is a good thing to be. A Paperclip is not.
Let them have him. As wrong as CBB was in recruiting, he did have one good statement concerning recruiting, “You recruit your own problems.” The problem for him was too many of his recruits were more of an on-field problem than off-field. They don’t have to be either.
Led on to the field by Medium-Game Bob. Oh wait, he gave the gig to Gomer Pyle.
Stoops was heavily critiqued in OK media for winning a lot of sorta-big games, but failing for years to get back over the hump. Maybe a bit of sour grapes, but I enjoy poking at the Goon squad any time I can.
