Yup you got that right. I want to make it to your baseball stadium sonetime. I hear it’s awesome.
Axton thats funny. I hate to see games like that. There should be some kind of run rule in baseball but glad to be on the winning side of it. MSU fans may be frustrated but you do have a 2021 World Series Championship to reflect on.
Radio said his nil deal will be worth $3.5M! if true thats more than many, maybe all, WR's drafted will make this season.
come on BT he may not have said the exact words but 99% of people who read/heard em knows that is exactly what he was inferring. Nutz is right all he had to do was start off by saying they didnt cheat or break any rules or by saying ATM recruited within the current NIL rules and made sure every player was paid. While it may not be breaking any rules this is what is wrong with NIL.... or any number of ways he could have put it to not sound accusatory. You usually dont put blinders this thick on. Both these coaches have reacted stupid. Saban sounded accusatory and entitled and jimbo sounded unhinged and crazy.
Took it personally! Well I would hope so. Saban called him a cheater. Said he didn’t mean they were buying players but that is exactly what he said. I don’t like either of these guys so I hope it festers forever but saban was in the wrong here.
well mostly spot on. Its nice to think the NIL was put in place to help people and do great charity work but thats incorrect. It was put in place because we are a capitolist nation, well the right is anyway. I applaud the great work of these SC players but thats not the reason NIL exists and never was.
they are all big but some have a little more meaning, like week 4.
They should settle this at halftime of their game with boxing gloves.
While nobody posting on this site knows who did what there is a lot of smoke out there about A&M's class. Did they buy every player? Likely a pretty big exaggeration I would think. Did they pay a lot of players big money? sure seems likely. The radio this morning was talking about a coach saying players told him A&M offered me this much and I want to come to your school but its life changing money so I cant turn it down. Mack brown said players told him "another school" did the same thing. mack didnt name the school and Im not saying it was ATM. They also recalled when Derrick Henry was given a new charger and I think they sid $400K to go to bama and Trent Richardsons family was given two houses and he was given a big sack full of money to go there and that it was public knowledge now. No it was not a mcdonalds sack. I had not heard all that but these guys are pretty particular about not reporting something based on rumor. I used to think most programs were clean but think I was very naive and a lot of programs were dirty. Im not referring to hundred dollar handshakes but big money, cars... I think Nick is being hypocritical. I have no doubt some bama players are getting some nice NIL deals and I think Jimbo is just lieing. There is no way those players were getting what certainly seems true and he wasnt aware. If he wasnt then he is totally out of touch with his program. It wasnt illegal so he should have just owned it or at least not been so adamant about all the players just coming to ATM because they like ATM and the coaches. Like I said beforte its the wild wild west and if you dont have a gunslinger HC embracing NIL and the TP then you are getting further and further behind.
well I dont think orgerons and kellys accent will have any impact whatsoever on the players learning. you can get by without really good pass catching tight ends if they are really good blockers. But if you are light in both areas that is a big detriment. LSU will likely experience some problems this season, maybe two seasons, but kelly is a better coach than many SDS posters give him credit for. I think he and LSU will be very formidable and in the hunt for the west, the SEC and the NC in 2-3 years if the recruiting stays on track which I have little doubt it will. Obviously they have to get into the NIL money like everybody else but thats true for everyone. if you arent NILing you are dieing.
geauxtigers at first i thought the same thing but honestly they are pretty close right now IMO. The funny thing is if Heupel ran a more conventional system and had the same record at UCF and UT he would probably be more highly regarded and ranked higher.
its 11am austin time, 12pm est. it could be 100 or hotter in austin by noon to 1pm and there isnt much shade in that stadium. That 100 will feel like 120 as I am certain the sun is closer to the ground in south texas. Night time game will be substantially cooler once the sun goes down. That part of texas almost always has a comfortable breeze at night. If youre going you want it at night.
Ok just kiddin That was for corch, Kirk and tdub
There is no wrong choice for someone of his talent level. Unless he chose Georgia…
Well I’m happy for him And hope he makes it. He wasn’t very good for UT but he was a one dedicated and tough vol. he always impressed at practice at UT too though. Anyway good luck JG!
My understanding is it had something to do with BYU joining the big 12 and not being able to play, but the buyout is the strangest I ever heard of. BYU gets away with no buyout and actually gets $2M and UVA and UT both give up some of its ticket sales revenue to pay the BYU buyout and some other crazy stuff I cant even remember. I think i would prefer to have played BYU but I do like playing UVA since it is a recruiting state for us and their new HC just happens to be the guy that turned us down before Heupel got the job and its close enough to attend for low cost. Can you even get a beer at a BYU game? We will be breaking in a new Qb in jackson, Iamaleava or Milton so it may not be an easy win.
so thats about 110 players total at $200K a piece is about $22M. I just took a quick peek at UW's financials and found they had revenue of $92M in revenue between 2015 and 2017. i dont know if thats 2 years or 4... it didnt say. but it said they made $43M in profit from the $92M in revenue and they are one of the richest schools in the pac 12. Oregon and USC are ahead of them. So UW will basically give up half their profits if this goes thru. other schools may not make a profit at all. More sound financial logic from the left.
If childress is the defensive MYP for ky then does that speak more to the lower quality of the overall ky D than it does to the quality of childress. I understand he had some nice stats but at Tx state doesnt necessarily mean it will transfer to the sec. Its a big jump. I would guess he doesnt end up the MVP and the ky D is pretty good. The #4 scoring D would be quite an accomplishment for a Leach coached team, especially in the sec. I will have to see it to believe it. I cant argue with the prediction on our secondary. We are so undermanned there it is ridiculous. We are going to be relying on a surprise or two to come out of the roster and that is a huuuuge problem. While I agree butler will be a big loss and we are still thin there (we are thin most everywhere) we have some good DL and I dont think that will be as big a problem as the writer does.
Congrats to the Vols! SEC Champions! I am curious as to how Tony will play vs the booldawgs. With nothing more to gain will he rest more arms and give more bench players more game time... or play as usual. Hoover wipes all the slates clean and we all start all over. The Vols have not been as dominant the last few series so I dont see them as so overwhelmingly the favorites as I may have earlier. For me winning the tourney is a nice cherry on top but being ready for the regionals and supers is the primary focus. Good Luck to everyone except when you play UT.
I must have watched a different UT QB last season. The one I saw threw passes all over the yard. short, intermediate and long and with a lot of accuracy. The one I watched seemed to read and react pretty quick and pretty good. I guess the question is if you put him in a more typical NFL offense would he be able to sit back in the pocket pre-snap for 5 seconds or more and read the D. other than the obvious differences in NFL and college I would think if you can read them at the pace he does it would bode well for him reading them with enough time to smoke a cigarette and drink a beer... He did force a few throws but not anymore than any other QB I dont think. He may have read some of the pressures but expected more protection from the RB's or TE's... He had a few head scratching throws too but im not sure why those occurred and would not expect that to turn into any kind of trend. I dont know what kind of NFL QB he will make but I would not bet against his success. TBH I dont see the O line being much better. the starters are or should be fairly solid but there is still no depth. All the attrition from pruitts exit will be with us for another couple years.
I love the old rivalries even though ours have been one sided for far too long. But everything is different so I am ready for a change. I think it is ridiculous to wait so long between some rematches. Everything else is changing so this may as well change too. Dont screw it up SEC.
for me what stands out isnt about how SC D does this season, though if these guys dont produce again this year it might contradict what I am about to say. I said on an earlier article that I thought Muschamp was no longer an elite defensive mind. I think he has not been that in quite some time, several years. Didnt muschamp have these two 5 * DL for 2 years? An elite defensive guy would have gotten something out of them. Were they both over-rated out of high school? Possible but not likely. I know uga fans are elated to have him as DC but I just dont think he is that good anymore. The uga D will still be really good but it may be in spite of, rather than because of muschamp. Kirby wont allow the D to be under-coached. I guess if neither of these two guys improve much then maybe that takers away from my thoughts. we will see. I do however think the SC D will be better. Just not sure how much better.
sorry boondock tough guy. didnt mean to leave you out as a top UT troll and you are a real internet tough guy, but hardly a boondock saint.
Great pick up! Fits in our biggest area of need perfectly. Welcome to Big Orange Country Julian!
Geez afan I didnt say bama would suck and I didnt say UT was going to be great. I said I didnt think the bama offense would be as good as last year. Obviously I meant prior to the WR's getting hurt. I also said they will still be formidable. if that means my big orange glasses are on full tint then ok, whatever.
