Former sports editor of The Reveille
College football is a heck of a distraction from the aggravations of day to day life, but some folks are too attached. This Fall will not be the same as the last 50 years when it comes to quenching sports fans' needs for distractions. I actually believe it will be mentally detrimental for quite a few people. I just wish I truly could believe that shutting down most American sports will make a big difference in bringing about an end to Covid. I am just not convinced. Dr. Fauci has convinced me that things will get worse before they get better. The problem is no one knows what the definition of "better" is.
As an LSU fan, I truly appreciate the game day decisions Kirby makes.
How many starting receivers and offensive linemen does each team have returning in the Fall? That, more than anything will determine the best QBs.
Just like Jordan had to come back for two meaningless seasons with Washington, he had to do the ESPN series because he missed the attention. He certainly got the attention. His intense drive for success is only exceeded by his ego. His attitude was that it was all about him. Teammates were bit players. The much maligned GM for the Bulls was the person who put the team together and made the right changes when they needed to be made. By constantly belittling Krause, Jordan was able to garner all the attention for the Bulls success.
Teams that are top tier and believe they deserve to be considered in that select group, can’t turn around and make excuses for why their team didn’t quite pan out. If Georgia didn’t have the receivers to be in the national championship picture, it would appear the coaches simply didn’t do their jobs recruiting. Head coach dropped the ball, much like the receivers they ended up with did throughout the season. No excuses, either you’re an elite program or you’re not.
David Wasson, please proofread your articles. Several mistakes.
SEC fans are the kindest, friendliest fans in the whole country....as long as their team wins. ND has a good team, but not a great team. Almost no running game, except for the QB taking off occasionally. Georgia fans really believed they were going to destroy the Irish and in the end were simply grateful to have survived. This game had to cause more questions about the Dawgs than supply answers.
Georgia fans are easily the classiest fans in the SEC and possibly the nation....as long as their team wins the game.
When he put together the Number 3 recruiting class in America, everyone who follows LSU smiled and gave the old wink, wink. No one really believed it was on the up and up. There should be no feigned surprise by anyone.
