I might be going to college at Cumberland University, which is only like 20 minutes away. I'll be going on a wrestling scholarship if I go; the fundraisers for the team is to volunteer as security for the home games. I am looking forward to that a lot if I decide to attend Cumberland.
It's a good deal...I did it with ROTC (stop laughing you guys) when the Oilers were at Vandy. We got in for the second half of those games. Don't know if that'll work with the new stadium...
"Reserve Officers' Training Corps"...It's the crazy guys who run around in military uniforms once a week. See the movie "Animal House" for reference. And without that pledge pin.
so what is funny about rotc?
Well Gunny, ROTC is not just for college. Most public high schools have got it as a club/elective. I don't know if this is a universal truth or not but at the high school I attended the ROTC kids were a peculiar bunch. They referred to themselves as "pickles" ... I don't think to many of those kids went on to be army regular types... Let's just say they had a few Napoleon Dynamites in that bunch.
If you can wrestle your way into a good education, especially Cumberland, go for it.
As for the PSLs, they are always some to be bought around the stadium before the games. Scalping is legal in Tennessee.
"pickles" are privates whose uniforms do not have any ornamination at all - totally OD Green hence the name pickles
And Now You Know
I can sleep easy now, thanks GoT.
