    I would imagine there are many other 'internal' examples of no "The" as I saw those 6 in about 30 seconds of search time.

    Are there strict usage rules in some manual with exceptions to delineate when the "The" is not required or what?
    If so, AGS/SoCon posters need this list of rules so that we can be properly respectful to our Bellhop friends.

    Hilarious and Accurate points!

    So now that you are aware the SoCon actually has three more programs than you thought, are you still bullish on Samford's chances?
