You rank the Pirate number 1 and have Lebby/Lane bringing up the rear? Where is the Hotty Toddy outrage? Hmmm. Maybe they are still hung over from last Saturday night.
So, SDS staff are a bunch of left wing radicals? Some of you don't get out much. Visit Boston or San Fran. Mississippi flag is heritage, not hate? It is very upsetting to a whole lot of Mississippians, not all of whom are black. A state flag should bring people together and inspire them, not stir them up and create resentment and hostility. We have a really nice alternative just ready for our legislature to adopt. And they probably would if not for the great hue and cry from a minority who simply don't get it. Should the NCAA mind its own business? Probably. They have enough problems in house.
Regarding out-of-conference games, how can you overlook that potential thriller between Mississippi State and Alabama (A&M)?
Leach's record in his first year on the job at a new location isn't all that impressive. His programs don't usually get rolling for a year or two. This is entirely understandable. Even St. Nick went just 6-6 in his first regular season at 'Bama. Turn-arounds take time. That said, Leach may break that mold if Costello turns out to be as good as advertised. This could be one of those football marriages made in heaven. Think Joe Burro and Joe Brady, or Drew Brees and Sean Payton on a more modest scale. I can see 5-7 but I can also see 10-2.
Here is the problem with the Magnolia coaches. If the new kids on the SEC block do poorly they won't last long as both fan bases have had a taste of success in the last few years. If they do well, they will probably get offers from better paying and higher profile programs.
If your cookout guest list includes kids, then burgers and dogs are required. I will NEVER pass up ribs as long as someone else is doing the hard work. That leaves wings as the odd animal out. But I would dump the burgers as well if steaks were an option on the three-meat menu. Let the kids eat hot dogs. I'll have my porterhouse medium rare, please.
I think it is fair to say things are trending positively on a national level. Yes, new cases and deaths continue but the trend for both has been downward for several weeks. Fortunately no SEC teams are located in North Carolina. At least not yet.
Tebow and it's not that close. Everybody said he was the GOAT when he finished at Florida and nothing has happened since to change that. Wuerfull sure was fun to watch, though.
Regarding Fitz: Comparing him to running backs is classic apples and oranges for reasons LH61 pointed out. But the point of the article is that this is a really surprising and somewhat obscure fact on its face. It also goes to show just how dangerous Fitzgerald could be with the ball in his hands. He absolutely annihilated average to weak SEC defenses and had a few pretty good games against the stoutest D's.
4th and 95. Not many plays on the play-sheet for that situation.
Both teams could end up at the under. New coaching staffs and no pre-season activity? Tough. As to which program is more successful, it will be the one with the HC who best adapts to this situation. I like MSU for the talent (assuming everyone stays healthy most of the season) but Ole Miss for the style of play. That running game could be easier to jump start after a lost pre-season.
At any rate, thanks for all the hard work, Steward. Hope it works out well for you. Even in blue and orange, you will still be part of the family.
This is a transfer that makes sense, unlike leaving because of a tweet that your coach posted when he had no idea it would offend anyone. Reese is heading to a good program, a coaching staff he knows, a place where he has connections, and a team that can use his talents. Who knows. Maybe they offer a stronger graduate program in whatever field of study interests him to boot.
All NFL'ers have the bucks to easily do this. But not so many think to do it. Turns out Mr. Simmons is a pretty good guy, just as we suspected based on his time in Starkville.
Here is a list of the other quarterbacks who have racked up 30,000 pass yards, 200 pass TDs, and 70 wins in the past decade... Drew Brees Aaron Rodgers Tom Brady Matt Ryan Ben Roethlisberger Pretty much a who's who of great passers of the period. Daulton is in some pretty good company.
Good luck, KT. Hope you tear up the ACC as a Cav. Two years of eligibility as a grad transfer! Now THAT should be fun. Hope to see you on Sundays in 2022. You may not have been treated that well by some of our coaches but a lot of us really enjoyed watching you play when you got the chance. All your hard work was obvious when you got on the field. Even though you are trading in your maroon and white for navy and orange you will still be family always. Hope you feel that, too.
Yup, pretty obvious you keep up with college more than the pros, Kirby. And as far as moving north, that kid from the Kiln and USM did pretty good when he had to play on The Frozen Tundra.
"If you butcher a 6th-round pick from a struggling school nobody has heard of, say, Florida State..." Broke me up. Take that, Danny boy! I hope Tua does stay healthy. Steve Young was a lot of fun to watch even if you were not a 'Niners fan. 100% agree on Jalen and on the point about how great its been watching these QBs do their thing so well and with style and class.
"I also hope Wingo and crew will help me out and do their part to keep Kiper in line!” Yeah. Good luck with that. Meanwhile, get well, Todd.
I was wrong on almost every one. I did WAY worse than the 50-50 I might have achieved by simply flipping a coin for each question.
Again? OK. Maybe in this case the grass may actually be a lot greener. I hope KT lands somewhere where he is a perfect fit. That bowl win over Louisville shows what he can do. He was a stand up guy here and would make a great addition to any locker room.
Like you are so short of free time these days.
On the one hand I'm thinking, "Wow, we are really getting a lot for our athletic dollar here." But on the other, I'm thinking, "Wow. Top level college coaches in women's sports are really undervalued and underpaid."
Not a good look, Dak. Also not in character. Keep it humble, man. Your life will be happier.
Good to see SDS and Connor keeping the flame alive. Bo was the definition of "something else". As far as O'Gara's complaints go, whoever edited the documentary had to keep it to a reasonable length. Documenting "Bo-the myth, the legend" took up a lot of screen time, which just didn't leave all that much time for "Bo, the man". Completely understandable.
