I was listening to ESPN radio yesterday and they were talking about this. Arkansas was about to file a lawsuit to have Brett pay back some of the buyout money based on the bad faith clause in the contract. Brett filed his lawsuit to get the jump on Arkansas's lawsuit. Prior to this, Brett was not even looking into suing Arkansas for the rest of the money. It was only after he learned they were going to sue him that he filed a lawsuit. Per the buyout contract, he was to find a job with a salary that helped offset the buyout clause. The contract he signed with New England when he first arrived was for $50k, just under the limit for the buyout which allowed him to draw full buyout money and the $50k from the Patriots. At the time, Arkansas had mentioned that the move was not in good faith as other NFL assistants were being paid higher than that for the same job. That is why Arkansas decided to stop making the payments. I do believe that Arkansas should have kept their mouth shut vs trying to go after the $4.5m because what I think will happen is that both parties will agree to a settlement of the previously paid $4.5m and then both parties are out the money for the lawyers.
I think you meant Jacob Eason. Fields will be in next year's draft.
You honestly think comparing being drafted and losing a game as the same thing? No wonder no one says you're classy. You don't know the definition. They are saying Bama is classy because they could have said nothing being that he finished his career at Oklahoma. Instead, Bama acknowledged the achievement of being drafted by one of their best QBs to go through their school. And you want to compare that to a 7 point loss in a regular season game? WOW.
Texas A&M chancellor shares timeline SEC and NCAA have outlined as potential deadline for playing full season
That or they cut non-conference games which would kill a lot of mid-major schools.
JTF, you made it further than I did.
Rex Ryan calls Tua Tagovailoa ‘biggest gamble in the history of the NFL Draft’, claims QB has had more surgeries than previously reported
Yeah, Butt Fumble Sanchez. SSSSOOOOOOOO much better than Tua. Granted, a busted hip is a major injury. You're right though, if Rex was good at evaluating talent, he'd still be coaching.
Agreed. Nurses are in contact with patients more than the doctors...though everyone in the healthcare profession is exposed to the virus daily.
*wasn't excited about Morris
Well said LSUSMC. gohogs7988, you can not like the hire, but I equate your whining to another saying. Your whining is like wishing that the pilot of your airplane would die. I was excited about Morris, but I offered my support for him and gave him plenty of opportunities, but he failed. Pittman is the same way. I love the guy, but I'm not sold on him being the head coach. I will support him and give him his chance, just like I did Chad. You don't have to like it, but for God's sake, stop scaring off our recruits with your bs.
Only as an interim Head Coach. Outside of him being in line of command at USC, he has the same career path as Pittman. I have my reservations, but at the same time, it's worked at LSU. Calling it a garbage hire and calling for Yurschek's firing is premature. Fans like you are the reason why recruits and potential hires shy away from our program. Too many "fans" spouting off bs versus trying to show support for the school.
Not saying that I'm super excited about this hire...BUT,having an OL coach as HC hass worked out for LSU.
Umm, not sure where you got that info from, but our AD was hired AFTER Chad Morris was announced as our head coach. Jeff Long was the AD during the Brett experiment.
Because they feel that Georgia is currently the 4th best team. Do you not think that they are the 4th best team?
Maybe the photographer will keep their butt on the sidelin,e utilr the final whistle blows, next time. As for Frank, maybe he should train his photographers better.
SEC Network analyst calls out Jauan Jennings following sideline incident, calls it ‘inexcusable action’
You're delusional. Video replay clearly showed the Vandy player's left foot was out of bounds and Jennings didn't make contact prior to that. Jennings feet were inbounds, was inbounds, but the runner was not. Also, sure, his head was looking up and away, but where were his eyes? He knew exactly what he was doing. Also, you can see him rip the helmet off, it's right there under his right arm. Did you think that the helmet just magically disappeared? Did he stomp on the guy's head? No, but he meant to step on his face. There's no other excuse for what happened. He meant to do it and should be suspended accordingly.
Not sure why this is here. They didn't simulate anything. This is no different than teams lining up their QB out wide and then bringing him back in under center or whatever. Completely legal play, Saban just got out-smarted.
Right! MSU fans should be happy they aren't Arkansas right now. What coach wants to take over a re-build just so he can get canned in less than 2 years? Maybe he's looking for that big buy-out money that we seem to throw around.
That's not a botched fake punt. That's a botched punt attempt. Just like a botched field goal attempt or extra point attempt where, the holder drops the football, is not a botched fake either. A botched fake punt is what Arkansas tried to do against Auburn with the basketball jump pass that was intercepted.
LOL. I love their videos.
I guess it's a good thing that they don't let your blind ass call the shots.
Technically, in America, the term razorback is loosely applied to any feral hog or wild boar. A true wild boar is called a Russian Boar. These wild boars are called razorbacks because of their high, hair-covered backbone and ill-mannered temper.
There are wild boar in Arkansas. Yes, you can hunt them, but if memory serves me right, you need a special permit. I do not know if they have good meat. Everyone that I know (that has gone on hunting trips for them) just gets them mounted or stuffed. I've never seen anyone actually take the meat, though there are plenty of recipes for it.
That's funny. Everyone knows that Arkansas still owes CBB $7M (though that is in the court system now) and now owes CCM $10M. no way Arkansas can then buyout The Gus Bus contract from Auburn. Thank you Aubie for that HUGE contract you gave him last time.
AMEN!!! Preach it!
So badly out of shape? Doubt it. All there is to do in prison is workout and read books. He might come out in better shape.
Where's the punishment for Rudolph? He tried pulling Garrett's helmet off first and then he stuck his hand in Garrett's face mask. What Garrett did was horrible (should have dropped the helmet before swinging at least), but if someone stuck their hand in my face mask, I'd take a swing at them too. Your hand don't belong in my face mask.
I'm a bit surprised by this, but these polls don't really matter. It's the last one that everyone should want to be in. Also, unlike the NFL or the FCS, the top-seeded teams don't get home-field advantage. It's played a "neutral" site instead of on the team's campus. I was once a non-believer in the OSU hype, but I've watched several of their games this year and they are no joke. Bama, LSU, and OSU are the three top teams this year and they will get sorted out as to who is number 1 when December and January come around.
He didn't say "very successful" head coach. He said very successful coach. He was a very successful coach at Clemson. He recruited Watson, so don't go saying that Morris didn't mold Watson because he was already a Heisman finalist. Also, he rebuilt the SMU team which is why they are as successful as they are today. You're right though, Arkansas hasn't been this bad in a long time, but you can think CBB for that.
