In the 70's UF had a class that was only open to athletes called "rocks for jocks" it was a geology class for an easy science credit
Very true, but I am confused about the whole issue. At first it was "just a stinger" and with his history I can see being a little cautious. Then it was reported that it had nothing to do with his prior neck injury. Is this just an overabundance of caution or was it something serious, its hard to know with these dribs and drabs of information coming out. If it was serious it may be time for the young man to hang up the cleats and retire before he gets crippled for life.
The Mets were smart to sign Tebow and give him a chance. Not only is he a hard working team mate, he is a role model on and off the field for the young guys, plus he knows how to deal with all the pressure of being on the biggest stage in sports. As an additional positive effect he is bringing attention to minor league teams all across the south, putting butts in seats and possibly making new fans for the home teams that he plays against.
Just think, if the one about NOT hiring someone close was in place when Nutt hired Malzahn maybe Malzahn would still be coaching High School ball.
Couple of things that mean it will never happen 1) Texas would have to give up the Longhorn network and realize it has to SHARE EQUALLY with the other teams in the conference and 2) Oklahoma would only join over Stoops cold dead body. Another question is would you split them between divisions or would you put them both in the west and move 2 other teams to the east?
It was harder for him too cause he had been away from it for 10 years, its sorta like Tebow trying to play pro baseball after not touching a bat ball or glove since high school. Goldberg also said in a different interview a while earlier that it has really been hard on him to bulk back up to wrestling weight cause he had trimmed down a bit and wasnt training in the same way anymore.
Romo had quite a few years left in him as a backup - think Earl Morrall for the Dolphins or even Don Strock. In that position he could actually start learning to be a qb coach as well as a backup and maybe start seeing the field and the game from an OC mindset. I think he retired because he didnt want to be relegated to being traded to be someone elses #2 qb or a starter for a struggling team - especially given his fragility.
Experience is more than just the system, its also being out there under the lights with the crowd in your ears and those monster SEC defenders trying to turn you into hamburger. Very few freshmen or others who havent "seen the elephant" do good till they get up to speed.
You know if Spurrier is involved theres a joke hiding in there somewhere even if it isnt the obvious day for such things.
Just so we are perfectly clear the womens championship is an ALL SEC Game? fan-freaking-tastic.
I dont see it as hate so much as having fun with the total lack of humor Tenn. fans have. Instead of seeing what he said as a light hearted jab at Tenn. fans they blew up. Now if they would either a) just ignore him, or b) laugh at him, he would eventually give up and go away and bug someone else. He might go back to trolling USC again.
It really is a bad idea, combine guns, passion, and alcohol and the reality of a bad outcome is pretty certain, and I dont care a whit what the pro gun people will say about no "responsible" gun owner would ever ... blah blah blah, its not the responsible gun owner to be feared its the irresponsible gun owner who hasnt been put in a position to do something really stupid, Like that professor screaming at Coach B, just think if he was also a gun owner who had his gun with him? Lets keep the stadiums and arenas and fields safe for all attendees from athletes to fans.
Now I am waiting to see who noticed the football theme video left out Missouri and Texas A&M.
I tried once to watch that show and had to give it up, ESPN has turned from sports to "reality" tv anyway. I want people who can discuss the sport in a way that anyone can understand and do it with passion but with respect for the viewer. And that seems to be the thing ESPN has lost.
This has come up before with a player at UF, and the players father had the realization that it would have been better for his son to go where he could get on the field and play early at a small school than to ride the bench for 4 years at a marquee school.
I see these firearms with these fancy colors and such and only have one thing to say, if a cop shoots a kid with a toy gun, DO NOT SAY A WORD.
That never works out well for the player really, look at Mitch Mustain at Arkansas, prima donna who wanted to call the game to make him the star, left a potential 2 - 3 year starting potential to go ride the pine at USC. If a kid will quit over an argument I dont know any other coach who wouldnt view him as anything but a potential cancer.
Ohh some of his best zingers were reserved for FSU - Free Shoes U. and Ga esp when he was at USCe. and of course his Tenn. zingers were legendary.
I think the SEC should bring Spurrier back as a "guest interview". He wanders in, throws a few zingers and heads to the golf course for the rest of the day.
Didnt Old Miss LOSE to Arkansas both of those years too? Hard to claim dominance potential when that happens.
he might be like me, a dual school fan. I fly the hog because thats where my family roots are but i am also a Gator too, have to pick one.
arent we jumping the shark a little bit, talking about Heisman trophies BEFORE spring practice even begins?
Not sure tackling a drunk mayfield is an endorsement, now if he could run him down sober, give the man a scholarship.
Art Briles will be available, and who knows maybe you could get Lane Kiffin
Not only that but the rating is based off HS competition and so many guys peak in HS and do not have the mental or physical ability to go further, thats why I think that paying too much attention to ratings hype on the recruiting trail is so much BS.
I think too many times these kids who leave early are getting pressure from family and friends to leave early thinking that the kid was going to get drafted and get a big check and carry everyone else along with him, and then there are those shady agents or agents runners who blow smoke up their butts about how big they will make it so they make that jump when a true evaluation would say stay another year and get your degree.
Smoking, dropping, injecting, whatever this was - I call it self indulgent BS.
Point for your argument - Fred Belitnikoff, one of the slowest wide outs ever but ran precise routes, always got open and hardly ever dropped a ball.
He was ready to roll and they burn LOL He didnt say WHAT he was rolling did he?
