If you need reality about how concerning this pandemic is, we are watching it unfold before our very eyes. Big business continues to put their money where their convictions are. They are passing on billions of dollars that otherwise are just a part of normal everyday commercialism. When big business refuses to continue to fleece the flock it's time to believe. This virus is a bad dude.
The 5 largest hospitals in Mississippi are out of ICU beds and the virus is spiking all over the country. Conferences eliminating a third of their schedule is simple maintenance at this point. The next few weeks will tell the rest of the story.
COVID is going to have the final say. As always.
It's hard to believe that the NFL will use a top 5 pick on an OL with blood clot issues. This has already happened to him twice at Tennessee and his career was put on hold each time. That stuff is nothing to mess with.
As a Junior Burrows put up numbers and even against UCF in the bowl win was who he is. What changed was an incoming guy who knew how to manipulate offensive schemes. It was perfect timing with personnel at WR and all across the offensive line and running back. The perfect storm. You can't put someone's face up on a billboard and then put success or failure on those shoulder pads. If the dawgs evolve offensively, a heap of stuff will be coming together for the first time. Stubborn conservative coaches are going to get their convictions and identity challenged in this conference with these makeovers. Justin Fields would never have been the player he was at Columbus had he started for the Dawgs last season. Neither will this new guy, this season, without all the other missing parts in place. Much easier said than done.
I remember vividly what happened when Urban Meyer left Gainesville a decade ago. The big question is when do the Gators start replacing all those wins? The second would be, will Florida ever pull the massive "blueblood" recruits into their program again. That would seem like the more pressing problem for Gatorland than when Big Bad Bama stops beating up on the SEC.
Can't say "bluebloods" without the historical narrative to back it up. I'm not sure that Michigan is nearly as bad off as Nebraska or Texas. Do you have to win a title to break the curse? If so, lots of teams should join that list. Michigan, Texas, in their heyday, never came close to the NCs won by their nemesis and rival in places like Oklahoma and Ohio State.
Jordan was gifted athletically. He also brought to mind once again that as a human being he was also the azzhat GOAT. What a despicable tool of a person.
Todd McShay says he couldn’t bring himself to watch the 2020 NFL Draft coverage: ‘I felt like I let everyone down’
Todd also does sideline reporting during the college football season. He is a regular analyst year-round on all things college football. Getting COVID-19 lets no one down. Just get well, no man is irreplaceable. Personally, it was the best draft I've witnessed.
Paul Finebaum on Mike Leach’s controversial tweet: He would be in more trouble if not for coronavirus coverage
Don't you just love America. Here, we tolerate the morally corrupt just as long as you stay politically correct.
Rex Ryan, ESPN being called out after former NFL coach describes Amari Cooper as ‘turd’ on national television
If Rex feels the need to discuss job performance and stealing he should have saved most of that where it rightfully belonged. Jason Garrett was a "turd" of an NFL head coach. Very few guys get a chance to do so little with so much for so long. A subject that Rex should be an expert on.
Amari Cooper worth his extension in Dallas? Rex Ryan says ‘I wouldn’t have paid this turd. No way in hell’
Rex has mastered this media stuff with the same expertise and craftsmanship of his head coaching gigs.
Football isn't real life unless you insist on all the silly emotional predispositions that come with football bias. I have in fact very close friends and a couple of grandchildren who root for Georgia and Auburn.
Georgia fans live all around my neighborhood and are pretty much allowed to roam freely on this football site with their opinions. Maybe you should take it up with them? And as far as his first 5 years, neither was Les Miles. Try to keep up.
Coach Saban is often asked, in-season if this particular group is one of his best teams. Coach Saban is always quick to reply to wait till season end. It's how we finish that paints the picture for coach and fan alike. The discontent with Kirby is that he hasn't finished the deal. And then someone throws up Mark Richt's comparison chart. That always seems to look surprisingly similar, by the way. A HC can get fired in the SEC for winning SEC titles, a NC, having undefeated regular seasons and averaging more than 10 wins a season. Les Miles approves this message.
Kirby's ST play has been erratic and disappointing since Shane Beamer left the program for the Sooners. Hiring an S&C coach with zero ST experience seems like the right way to go if you're trying to right the ship. I mean, what could go wrong?
My question would be why Georgia fans also consider 2017 as a success?
I dare you Dak to walk away from that money. I double dare you. Take the money Dak. And then hope and pray it allows Dallas to pay their OL and Amari Cooper going forward. Otherwise, You will be quickly exposed as the non-elite QB you are.
Paul Finebaum reacts to Terrell Lewis’ combine comments: Pete Golding is the worst Alabama DC to return under Nick Saban
The opening game for Bama vs Lousiville in '18' players calling the defensive signals were complaining they were struggling to get the signals to teammates. Both Thompson and Wilson were open with those struggles throughout the season. Which brings us to year 2 WJP (Without Jeremy Pruitt) The eye test said we were getting misaligned, confused, with players still looking at the sidelines after the ball was snapped. Poor tackling and fundamentals to boot. Houston, we have a Pete Golding problem.
Those multiple personalities can be hard to manage. What a maroon.
Or in Mel's case, you can just watch what he says and then even more importantly, what he does.
Integrity can be a lot to live up to. Why a lot of folks would rather not.
Has nothing to do with my salary. At some point, it does have to do with my word to the kids, faculty, boosters, fans who I specifically told I'm all in "heart and soul," less than a week ago. And continued to repeat myself, ad nauseam, to anyone who would listen, as late as Tuesday night. For what it's worth, why do these head coaches insist on using the same stonewalling and flat denials on their recruits and family as they do with the press? Do these players and family deserve to be lied to with the same coach-speak as the Paul Finebaums of the world? You would think these multimillionaire businessmen, who have been in these recruits homes for decades, could figure out how to speak to these recruits and families without these bold-faced, absolute denials, that are pure lies. These head coaches are conducting themselves as pathological liars. Conclusion: Mel Tucker is lower than a rattlesnake.
Then don't reassure them you wouldn't leave no matter what. You "obligated" yourself if those recruits would only "obligate" themselves to you. What is your word worth these days? I know the value of Tuckers.
How about this: You run a department that allowed you to recruit your personal help. They quit their job and they come to work for you because they realize you're a master craftsman and they want to learn from the best. You promise every one of them, 25 in all, that if you leave your job, take the risk, I'll hire you and I'll be there to teach you everything I know. Your promise, your word to the people you recruited to work for you. How's that new job offer looking now?
He has to answer for his own character, that's for sure. That definition of a lie you mentioned, only seems to works in the coaching business. Try that at home or on your job it's probably going to come back and bite you.
Then leave and chalk it up to a poor "investment" on Mel's part. Bad enough after one season. Contributing to the deception by lying to players, families of players, boosters, and fans as late as Tuesday night, promising Buff nation that he's all in, is just plain lying about it. Why would a recruit or their family believe anything this guy tells you?
No excuse for Tucker to leave Colorado after one season. Then after his first flirtation with MSU goes on twitter to tell the Buff nation he's not going and he's all in "heart and soul." And seven days after signing your class you leave. Shame on you Mel.
It's hard to imagine that Guarantano has another level to go to. He still holds on to the ball way too long and throwing guys open instinctively doesn't seem to be his thing. Improvement will have to be the players around him.
I'd vote some medication issues on the troll dressed in Crimson.
