The no personal attacks on members rule isn't rocket science. It's not even remedial math.

Wench was indeed insulting. In 1788.

I've never known wench to mean anything more than a young lady or a beer server.

its the on same level as *****

perhaps if you don't acknowledge any fluidity in language.

wench is akin to bastard in its colloquial usage... just generally not that offensive.

Just for giggles I googled 'define wench' and it's like 5th or 6th link before you get to any sort of definition that has a negative or offensive connotation (and the majority of those are listed as archaic)... and while I'm sure Mr Scot wasn't using the term in a "positive" manner, the point still stands that the "personal attack" policy on this site is in reference to (as Kurb has already explained) members of the site.

...and not to mention the fact that this entire discussion is the height of irony as it was instigated by the very person who is by FAR the most likely to attack, insult, and degrade anyone on here that doesn't share his opinions.

    • I would be more than happy with a battle of the Carolinas for the title (if for no other reason than it means we got by UK and KU). Please beat Florida for me.  I am sick of hearing about them.
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
