A lower-ranked home underdog winning is considered an upset. The AP voters had Auburn higher entering the game. More money was bet in Las Vegas on Auburn as the favorite.
Sadly, I've never met Mike Gundy or his awesome mullet. ACC refs say there should have been a second. It was a controversial call to end the game. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/acc-admits-mistake-was-made-by-officials-at-end-of-north-carolina-wake-forest-game/
It's a controversial call when the refs admit a mistake and say there should have been 1 second. I recommend hydrating before making a foolish comment. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/acc-admits-mistake-was-made-by-officials-at-end-of-north-carolina-wake-forest-game/
Covering what SEC players are saying about their teammates is a pretty common August camp story for all 14 conference teams. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/georgia-football/georgia-db-says-5-star-freshman-wr-george-pickens-reminds-him-of-bulldogs-great-a-j-green/
And Dansby Swanson could have made four. Quite a season he's having in Atlanta.
You're right. I copied from the list itself, but should have double checked. Thanks!
The GoFundMe donations are to support the site's investigation (records requests, legal counsel). It is true that investigative journalism usually needs financial backing. Usually that comes from a publication. Knight News is trying crowdfunding, a different approach.
Right. Corrected. Thanks. That's usually former Texas A&M/Mizzou players that cause the slip in language.
Awaiting decisions/announcements from RB Lamical Perine, WR Van Jefferson and edge rusher Jabari Zuniga.
Must have been a late surge of Crystal Balls. Looks like LSU closed at 62%. "Word" tends to get out right before or everyone follows a couple experts.
Right. The ex-girlfriend calls him a repeat sexual abuser in her statement, but I haven't seen anything about a rape accusation.
State Attorney chose not to charge based on the reports I looked at from Ball's dismissal. Title IX investigations, however, have a lower threshold to determine whether someone is "responsible" for wrongdoing (word used in Title IX decisions, as opposed to guilty/not guilty).
UF's current three-game winning streak (2018 season) - not Florida-LSU series related. Not intending any confusion.
I'm all ears. Why else wouldn't he release it?
Haha. Quotes are like that. I think he's saying everyone needs to be on the same page, but you're right about 11 blockers being too many.
Callaway's attorney has more or less declared war on UF over the way the case was handled and the fact he was suspended from the team while the accusation was being investigation. Fun stuff.
Stoops was incorrectly included. Article has been updated. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
I advise drafting Henry as well in the mid-to-late rounds. At the very end, I like the roll the dice aspect of Howard as a bench/flex option.
My bad. Got it from The Clarion-Ledger, which appears to have updated its article.
There's obviously a ways to go before fall camp, but if Zaire does transfer here, I would be shocked if he's not No. 1 or 2 on the depth chart when healthy. Trask throws a pretty ball, but he's not a quick decision-maker and doesn't handle pressure well. In the last few practices before the spring game, it was becoming quite clear that Franks was distancing himself.
Size of an athletic department (number of teams) and Title IX are factors in numbers of scholarships. USA Today's article is kind of a big-picture, national take on the payouts. They have a section talking about basketball schools without football programs voicing frustration. Football is obviously 85 scholarships.
Funny thing, in my head I was thinking Chubb might have been a 4-star, but I checked 247Sports Composite and he's shown as a 5-star. That 2014 running back class was one for the ages.
LSUMC, that's an oversight. Looking at list of invitees and snubs, I didn't notice Neal not being there and that's my bad. Since there was a huge discrepancy, I looked back over the links I had saved. That was an older projection that had Neal potentially round 1. More recent projections have him going later. Though I would still expect to see him in the NFL and do think he belongs with the combine snubs. Both stories will have edits.
Trask had the better spring, but any time Del Rio was hurt this fall, Franks became Appleby's backup. What we see at practice is limited, but all indications are he has made strides since spring.
I goofed. Don't know why. My bad.
Corrected. Thanks. That would be big if it was as I had originally typed it.
You're right. I did the math wrong when calculating the streak.
The stalemate is in reference to post-Thursday negotiations, after the SEC announced the game was postponed. I didn't see the pre-Thursday offers as relevant to the McElwain item of Travis' report.
My bad. I wasn't covering the game last year, but I'm going to edit to reflect what you've pointed out. Appreciate the heads up. You're right, most recaps have it as an icing. When you search for it specifically, there are references to a penalty.
