I've run 25,000 miles for fitness, drunk about the same number of beers, and lived 75 years (so far...still kickin'). I love football and good sports.

Where is that fire-the-coaches article? Odom and his entire staff have to GO! Losing to the team that got smacked at home by UNLV. What's the excuse for that? A. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!
Make that 0/3 on FG attempts. And make that grade F-. Rankings mean a lot, don't they! The coaching and the play are RANKER than rank!
Did I mention that Mizzou has about 10 penalties so far? Well, they do!
Meanwhile, in Nashville, the no-Show Mizzou Tigers are doing their best Wyoming act again. As the third quarter winds down, they are trailing the 'Dores (yes, those 'Dores!) 7-14. The kicker has missed two FGs, Rountree has done zilch, and Bryant just threw a -- you guessed it -- a pick in the end zone. So, what is it? It's the economy -- it's the coaching, stupid! Not prepared! And no in-game adjustments. All grades: F.
@TigerTD Were you really "entertained and excited" by this one? (I wasn't.)
@slackjaw "Your" an ignoramus. But I give you credit for knowing your a$$ from a hole in the ground: it's the one your boyfriend goes for.
(Showing family snapshot album to new generation.) "...and that's your Uncle so-and-so being interviewed after the big victory over so-and-so, back in the year so-and-so! That's great stuff, isn't it?" Kid answers: "Can I have my ice cream now?"
So, the sage advise is, "Look good while losing." Uh-huh. I have yet to see a ranking of "moral victories" here. Is it time? (I hope not.)
I think Vegas knows that Florida actually lost to Kentucky, until Stoops blew it.
One team has a 100% chance of winning, and the other team has 0% chance of winning. Nobody knows which is which until the game has been played. But the die is already cast. What happens is always what had to happen.
I welcome the unwelcome mat in the SEC, and glad to be in the SEC to enjoy upsetting some overhyped apple carts here. "Not belonging" in the SEC is actually very flattering, in more ways than one.
The principal parts of the verb "to sneak" are sneak, sneaked, sneaked
...and You managed 26 yards rushing vs. Mizzou. Were Dowdle and Feaster also injured? There -- how was that?
"Woulda, coulda, shoulda" = L. It was a simple case of cocka-doodle-didn't.
He threw for a mere 140 yards vs. Kentucky, and only 116 vs. Georgia. He's a real world-beater, eh.
Here that's called "whining". He didn't look injured. He looked like he just woke up from his nap.
Winning the SEC East is winning the East. It's all done in front of millions of people and a great many cameras. Nothing "sneaky" about it. What's "snarky" is another question here.
@Danoh I heard a rumor that it was going to be Tennessee.
LSU still has something to prove: that they can play defense.
That the spread is only 21 vs. Vandy is the oddsmakers' statement about the post-Garrett Mizzou D. It's a no-confidence vote.
No need to "search for the path": the schedule was published long ago. Searching for Ws is another matter (and no short cuts).
What course is that part of? Sensationalism 101?
I like Kelly Bryant. He was a really great pick-up for Mizzou, and hats off to the coaches for snagging him out of the jaws of some other SEC teams. But he's not an NFL QB. He is a very good college QB and can still get better as this season progresses, but he needs to get NFL out of his mind, listen to the coaches, and (here we go) "play within himself".
Bryant was not great vs. Ole Miss. He not only threw the costly pick, but also sailed a number of passes, and neglected a wide-open Albert O. We stalled too many times and had to kick field goals.
