For the record
Every week, Entertainment Editor Nick Margiasso will put one of our fine USF staffers on the musical hot seat for a Q & A. It may be informative, it could be disturbing but it definitely will be interesting.
Oracle: It’s our round … at the bar and at the jukebox; what’ll you have?
Jim Tremmel: At the bar I only drink water, always on the rocks. And, a little Martina McBride if you please.
Oracle: What record most influenced your youth?
Jim Tremmel: Surrealistic Pillow (by Jefferson Airplane). It was the ’60s, after all.
Oracle: Who wins the fight: James “Sex Machine” Brown or Frank “The Blue-eyed Chairman” Sinatra?
Jim Tremmel: If you believe any of the old stories about old Franky’s underworld connections, you have to believe that sooner or later, James will “sleep with the fishes.”
Oracle: What is the best music for solving equations?
Jim Tremmel: The sound of silence. (Editor’s Note: Does he mean the Simon and Garfunkel song, or the actual sound? Another clever rue courtesy of Mr. Jimmy “Jam” Tremmel!)
Oracle: If you had a hit single what would it be called and what kind of music would it be?
Jim Tremmel: “We are the World,” except I think that one is taken. The musical type would be folk rock; my friends say I am an old hippie.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
