Coach Curry is a quality coach and I wish him the best of luck. He will field a winning team very shortly, and GSU will be darn proud of it. Good luck GSU. He was a thrill to watch when he played for the Baltimore Colts and he still has the fire that he displayed as a player. Wish I could talk to him sometime, about the old Baltimore Colts and Johnny Unitas.

What is the significance of the bold and not bold

I think there is a way you can do bold, but I am not sure of the procedure. Probably the only significance for most that use it, is to be noticed more I guess, LOL.

Urm… I’m pretty sure bold means from Ga

AHHH, just like the first paragraph says. Persons in bold are recruits from Georgia. I thought you meant when some of these folks use bold in their comments. In the later case, according to a bunch of shrinks that did a study on why some people try and stand out, it is really rooted in their need to cry out for help. Not sure how it all ties in but what the heck, my field was physics related so don’t know beans about behavioral disorders anyway, LOL.
