I'm skeptical this is going to work that well. Feel like 50% of the crowd will do white.
Certainly an individual choice on how to view it. I'm not advocating for an absence of consequences. Just thought that throwing out the idea that not piling on with regards to the "Freeze is a hypocrite" narrative is worth considering for a variety of reasons. That said, I don't blame colleagues or fans for being critical. Freeze obviously brought everything upon himself. Thanks for the comments.
AndyVFL, we had a team of 8 onsite at SEC Media Days for four straight days (plus a few others covering the event from offsite), and we pumped out literally 100+ articles and 15-25 podcasts and videos spanning all 14 teams from the event. I'm sorry this 'article' from one person that's intended to be fun offended you. I see you went to the Jim McElwain school of sensitivity.
For those who haven't been to Media Days, really the only fans who show up are Alabama fans (the event is in Birmingham, in the middle of the week).
Not really a comparison. Previous incarnation was an experiment. Check it out. If you don't like it, you don't have to listen. :) We have some good stuff planned, however.
Good read which gives clear evidence why "cupcake" games are critical to these smaller programs. The media wants the P5 conferences to cut off FCS schools, but fail to recognize that these games essentially keep them afloat. Let the teams schedule who they want. If their schedule isn't strong enough overall, the polls will punish them. Why must we try to legislate everything from a top-down approach?
I believe the least respect a back-to-back division winner has ever received still goes to Missouri after winning the east in both 14 and 15.
To add to this, we're also investing heavily in technology to speed up the site. Our goal above all else is to provide the best user experience. Clean, readable and fast to our readers.
The new format is designed to provide a cleaner, easier interface for reading content. Less busy with the content itself front and center. Don't worry, everyone hates every redesign at first. This is the 4th time we've done this since launching the site in 2010. I trust you'll come around, but our team definitely appreciates your patience and regular visits in the meantime. You can also send me direct feedback at any time at Thanks.
What a waste of a life. Very sad. Many lives destroyed as a result in recent years. Just sad.
Love Chad Kelly on the field. Guy plays tough as nails and competes til the end. Would be super fun to watch in the NFL if he can make it. Big if, it seems like.
Interesting. That guy could be a monster in 2017. Hope he's healthy mentally and physically.
Sumlin has his flaws, but I'm of the position that Texas A&M would be nuts to move on from him. Two main reasons: 1) the confidence that his replacement would exceed what he's done is low for me considering just how difficult the SEC West is, and 2) Sumlin has presided over a ton of success around the program outside the win-loss record: fundraising, facilities, recruiting, etc. Sumlin's worth the money. He might not win a natty, but the Aggies will always be relevant with him.
Well done, Mac. Much needed momentum for the Gators.
Understood. Though, that can be applied to pretty much any major fan base.
Crazy finish. Probably good for Hurts' development. Can't have things too easy for the young quarterback. Clemson's receivers are incredible.
Except that Lane Kiffin single handedly trolls more people on twitter than any coach in college football. Plus his history of verbal jabs, etc. The timing of the tweet is why it's kind of funny, and there are few coincidences when it comes to Lane Kiffin.
Saban changed his mind based on the Washington game and I guess on how the team has been preparing.
Completely agree. If the media didn't exist, Tennessee would still have underperformed in 2016. It was year 4 of Butch Jones, Florida and Georgia were still rebuilding. It was inexcusable for Tennessee not to win the SEC East regardless of what was said about the team in the preseason.
Clemson looks... dangerous. I'm leaning Clemson in the rematch.
If you can't call the 2016 season as disappointing for the Vols, then you're either not watching or you're naive. I'm not saying they were a playoff team, but they should have won the east no doubt. It only gets harder to do so next year.
