    Damn, there goes my shot at endorsement contracts. Back to life as a small-town club pro? Try my luck on the tour? Decisions...

    Well done, Norsk. Jacen: great idea and thanks for running it.

    Great faculty.

    This pick reminded me that I wanted to pick Antonio Vargas, the scruffy paso doble teacher (and Fran's dad) from Strictly Ballroom
    [​IMG]
    as my dance instructor, but forgot about him for some reasoan.

    Great thread, but nobody picked the greatest English teacher EVER!

    Had #4 and #9.

    Disagree with #8; her role was way too small to merit inclusion in the top 10. Then again, that could be said for #7 as well. In a draft of 10 different faculties of 10 teachers each, however, they would merit inclusion.

    I have #5, Mr. Hand. I think he was one of my first choices. I picked him for pretty much the same reason too. They probably saw our thread and decided to go with it. I don't blame them. It was good.

    Time for a bump: there's been a rare but necessary change in our faculty. Despite tenure being nearly sacrosanct, we've completed a disciplinary review and 1) revoked tenure and 2) fired one of these people for being a scumball serial rapist:

    Dr. Huxtable - Dr. Cosby - is out. We stress that all of the heinous things he did were outside of university time, and we will endow a new position in the Women's Center to promote awareness of sexual assaults and call attention to predators.
     
    bungadiri repped this.

    Dr. Huxtable was an OB/GYN. Was he part of this draft? BTW, nice bump! I'd forgotten about this draft. What a blast! One of my favorites!
