Oh, boy. We get the late game on Wednesday. It will probably be a short visit to Hoover. I would love it if SC or Tennessee won it all and got another SEC team into the NCAA tourney.
I like Kentucky. People I've met from there are cool and there is a lot of pretty country up that way. But that derby thing...
I see Stevens winning the job. I see him struggling to complete passes. After all, his limited history was probably mostly against second string defenses in garbage time and even then he was limited to 58%. Also this receiving corps won’t make his job any easier. I see him running a lot and with success in early non conference games but less successfully (but still a lot) against SEC teams. I see a second coming of Fitzgerald’s senior season. I sure hope I am wrong.

Whoo boy. Another QB. They say that if you have two starting QBs you don't have any. I guess we are down somewhere around minus one.
"The NFL is also fraught with bad officiating, and that’s because the rulebook keeps changing on a whim and no one can keep the rules straight." That blown pass interference call in the Saints/Rams NFC championship game last year wasn't exactly due to any complexity in the rules. Yeah, we're still not over it. Hell, we're still pissed about bountygate.
That's the Aaron Rodgers formula. Worked out pretty good for him.
Looking back over the past decade I can recall some pretty good MSU teams. But I don't remember one that had the quality of pitching we have this year. Who am I forgetting?
Unlike your hogs who seem to be doing just fine.
That interview is exactly where my brain went reading this article and the comments. Dan isn't the best of recruiters even when things are going his way. Now this?
Love Booger. Nice that he gets to work on some fine New Orleans cookin' during his first Monday Night gig.
Thanks for linking to another great Caliendo video. He does a lot of great voices but his Gruden is dead on.
Vandy and Sooie look to be the class of the conference with a bunch of West teams hot on their tail. Which means the SEC (and almost certainly a super-regional) will go to the team that stays healthy and gets hot down the stretch. I could see SEC teams hosting 6 regionals.
Nice. I'm looking forward to the time when MSU fans can forget Dan's leaving and remember what he did for MSU football.
This madness will stop when players realize a crappy third tier bowl game is not worth what it costs their university to participate. So I guess you will only need 4 wins to be bowl eligible now?
Well targeted burns, Houston. Well targeted. Don't take my word for it. Look at butt-hurt comments.
What's more amazing is the guy also happens to be a solid defender with an extremely high baseball IQ, great leadership, and blazing speed on the base paths and in center field. Jake will be a huge addition to an MLB clubhouse one day soon. Personally I would love to see him end up in Atlanta somehow, where he could be the next Chipper.
Happy for Abram and Simmons. Sorry to see Sweat go to a 3-4 scheme in NFL Hell.
Let's see how the rest of the draft plays out for Oak...er...Las Vegas before we go nuts. The Raiders may fill out their needs list in later rounds and in unrestricted free agency. Gruden actually has a pretty good history of first round draft pics during his time at Oakland and Tampa Bay, if you ignore picking a kicker with his first round pick in 2000.
A mention of Simmons' screw up and the possible impact on his draft status would have been reasonable, although his ACL was probably the biggest factor in teams passing on him. ESPN talking heads all went on to describe Simmons' exemplary life since that incident but leading with a video of the fight was a no class move on the part of the producers.
Please, PLEASE do not let Montez Sweat end up in Atlanta, where he can come after older, slower, but still MVP-worthy Drew Brees twice a year. Keep the Dirty Birds down. Let them go for another position, like a "QB of the future".
New Dude is doing well. I wonder of those numbers include fans watching from the Left Field Loft apartments. LSU is killin' it, as usual.
That was a good series win for the Mizzou, Cap. Even at home, taking two from LSU isn't all that easy. Ask us how we know.
Yeah, that .333 he hit against the Tigers was a disaster. /sarcasm
