"We just beat the No. 2 out of Iowa" That has to be the tweet of the year.
Impressed with Georgia, as I expected to be. Impressed with Kentucky. They fought hard. Impressed with Alabama, as usual. Impressed with how weird the LSU-UF games always seem to be. Really impressed with what Matt Corral did when his team was short-handed in receiving talent. Not too impressed with fans who bring golf balls to the game. Premeditation? Yeah. And in spite of the breakdowns on Saturday, Zach Arnett is a WAY better DC than Grantham, so don't try to send Todd back, Gators. I just hope we can hold on to him for a few years. UA-MSU was a great example of a well coached team simply getting steamrolled by a much deeper and more talented team that is also pretty well coached.
There seems to be a recent trend where some folks take very inappropriate action when things don't go their way. And, no, I am not talking about Trump supporters. It's more about people who just weren't raised right and there are plenty of examples throughout the political spectrum and in all areas of life. Too many Karens and Kens in the world. Not the first time in our history that things have gotten like this but the current trend is still disturbing.
I was pretty unhappy when Mullen left for the swamp. I know he's no Saban but he took our program to a level it had not seen in quite a while, and St. Nick isn't walking through the MSU head coach's office door any time soon. But I was not all that broken up when Mullen took Grantham with him. Captain Creative had an entire game to come up with a way to counter an offensive play LSU must have run 20 times. He never even tried to figure it out. As LSU was laying an egg in Lexington I kept muttering, "Can't run the ball, can't stop the run." But I guess if Grantham is calling the opposing defense even one of the worst run offenses in the SEC can shine.
Is there no gray area here? And should I, a male, be outraged if some lady says I look good in these jeans? Too many people looking way too hard to find fault with others.
Adam, you mentioned the correct answer: Waffle fries. At least if you are talking overall, and exclude great fries from non-chain or small chain restaurants. It's hard to find bad waffle fries whether from Chick-fil-A or one of the other chains that offer them. One doesn't need to look very hard to find soggy or greasy or cold regular fries or curly fries.
Coach O may not be the best coach in the SEC...maybe not even in the top 10. But he is a man.
The correct order, best to worst... At a fine dining restaurant: 1. French Toast 2. Pancakes 3. Waffles At a mom and pop breakfast joint: 1. Waffles 2. Pancakes 3. French Toast
What a shootout. Hated to see the Hogs lose but kind of happy (kind of) for the Rebs. Both teams proved they can put up points, Arkansas vs. a pretty poor defense and Ole Miss vs. almost anybody (except for Alabama and probably Georgia).
So much for USC winning on turnovers or a UT letdown game, as predicted by some SDS columnists.
Wow. Rocky Top! In the words of Paul Newman, "Who are those guys".
Joe, I think you may have underestimated how loyal (i.e. stubborn) Mullen is. Any snaps Richardson gets will be in garbage time. Then again, vs. Vandy, that could begin in the second quarter.
I guess this is pretty much the kind of hard hitting in depth coverage we can expect during a bye week. We want BAMA. (We really aren't that excited about playing the Tide, but, you know, at least it isn't a bye week.)
Hello, SDS. Might I recommend a couple of web addresses to key into that long white bar at the top of your browser? google.com and wikipedia.com. Using these little known but extremely useful web sites you can find out things like where Davante Adams played college ball (Fresno State) or what season Bama missed the FBS playoffs (2019-20).
Meanwhile the Cowboy just keeps easing up the charts. Would love to see him at #3 behind Corral going into the Egg Bowl. Great shoot-out: The Cowboy vs. the Corral. If Rogers and Leach can develop a middle-deep passing game and have a magical season in a year or two, I have the (obvious) title for the SEC Storied episode: "The Pirate and the Cowboy".
What? No coverage of MSU vs. BYE? I admit, I don't even know what conference Brigham Young East (or something like that?) is in. But you should cover my Bulldogs better because they are in the SEC.
Rogers IS really good and his stats in the Air Raid are even better. But Corral is the better all-around QB. That could change if Rogers hasn't reached his ceiling yet. But for now, yeah, Corral is a little better.
You can have championship winning coaches or you can have interesting coaches. If we can't land the former, we'll take the latter. Nothing worse than a boring loosing head coach.
Alabama – If you want an SEC championship DO NOT hire a former Saban assistant as your HC. Arkansas – Can they bounce back vs. Ole Miss? Auburn – The good Bo shows up…and on the road! Georgia – Beating Vandy 62-0 is one thing. Dominating Arkansas so completely is another. Those dogs can hunt. Florida – With all those penalties they looked like MSU. You know, where Dan used to coach. Kentucky – Florida won a lot of the battles but Kentucky won the war. LSU – You can hide but you can’t run. Mississippi State – Will Rogers goes all cowboy in College Station. Missouri – Mizzou is still last in the SEC in run defense. By a lot. Ole Miss – Can they bounce back vs. Arkansas? South Carolina – Struggle win. Is Troy better than I thought? Probably not. Tennessee – Where have you guys been? Texas A&M – The Aggies may struggle to avoid finishing in the West cellar. 75 million, eh? Vanderbilt – Well, all right. We see you, Vandy. Ugly matchup of the year that won’t actually happen: LSU rushing “attack” vs. Missouri rushing “defense”.
