Breaking news: Sean Spicer fired as WH Press Secretary; Nick Saban hired
Wanted him to come home to the Titans. It was clear he really wanted to stay in NE though, so good for him. His contract is really low though, especially considering how much he was shopping around.
If his arm is as advertised, we'll basically have a Dobbs 2.0 but with better accuracy and arm strength. I'm pretty excited about this.
Yup. One of the two picks will be used on a CB. They may wait on a WR if they find one they really like not named Davis or Williams, but I expect them to take either Davis or Williams then a CB at 18, unless Adams is available at 5.
He still has an issue dissecting zone coverage. Something I think an OC/QB coach can work with him on, but it's still an issue. He dominates man coverage. If he gets a good QB coach he could be very successful.
Jones will be at UT at least 3 more years? You're delusional. Nothing he's done thus far shows he will be here for 3 more years. I sure hope not.
Tennessee's greatest walk on is easily Doug Atkins, who attended Tennessee on a basketball scholarship and walked on with the football team. He's one of the greatest defenders in SEC history and had a great NFL career. Hard to pick anyone else in my mind.
Sutton is coming off a long injury and had minimal playing time this year. Every team knows that. And they recognize that his numbers are hampered as a result. I don't think it will affect his stock at all. The injury already ruined his stock. These numbers aren't going to make it any worse.
He still performed reasonably well in a number of drills. He still has the pro day as well.
Completely disagree with the number 1 play. I personally think that on lists like these, plays should be judged on their own merit, not relative to the game. I have always hated when ESPN's top play is a walk off home run, only because it was the game winning play, but other home runs are 9 or 10, and other more impressive plays are 2 and 3. A play is great because of what happens in the play, not because of its importance to the game's result. 60 yard hail mary to beat Georgia, I think, stands up on its own. Not sure it's top 5, but definitely a strong play. The untimed play to beat Oklahoma State was a great play on its own merit, it doesn't matter that it won the game. Clemson throwing out to Renfroe on the edge was nothing special. It was a play they had run plenty of times during the season, and had actually run once earlier in the championship game. So why should that be number 1? The only reason it was was because it ended the championship game. That's stupid. USC's FG to win the Rose Bowl? Same deal. Nothing special about a 40 yard FG--those are so incredibly common throughout the season. The only reason it was top 10 was because it won the Rose Bowl. Plays like that should make the list but not edge out other incredibly athletic plays. I just hate it when legitimately great plays are downplayed because they weren't game-winners or by great teams. Any reason why Ohio State's catch against the defender's back that made the top 10 edged out the other play that was exactly the same at number 11/12 (can't recall which it was). That's dumb. Both were equally great plays.
Pretty sure that's exactly what Blackburn plans to do. If hired as AD, he wants to hire Fulmer to help with fundraising. That makes the most sense.
I think the solution is really simple: hire Dave Blackburn as the AD, and let Blackburn hire Fulmer as his number two guy. Blackburn is a proven AD with a successful record with admittedly not much to work with. Fulmer has zero experience as an AD. So why would a premier program with tons of money to throw at its sports teams not want to hire a guy with a proven record of making a lot out of nothing? This is honestly baffling and a bit enraging. Fulmer is a great guy, but absolutely nothing demonstrates that he is the best candidate for our new AD, whereas everything shows that Blackburn is, and people have been saying it for months. This all comes down to popularity and politicking. It's idiotic. Fulmer can have a place in the AD office, but he should not be the AD. I'm disgusted with this program that I've loved my entire life. I'll always love Phil, but he's just not the right choice when there are other Tennessee guys who love our program and want what's best for it, with the experience to succeed. Hire Blackburn. It's stupid not to.
Just another poor kid made to grow up without air conditioning. Saban really should invest in some central cooling for his program.
Enjoy our DLine destroying you guys again.
Absolutely a home run hire. Hoke is responsible for all of Michigan's success on DLine in the late 90s/early 2000s. He recruited pretty much their entire defense that played the past two seasons. Their entire DLine this year, which was very, very, very good, were personally brought in by Hoke. The man knows how to coach a DLine and knows how to evaluate and recruit defensive talent. Great hire.
I wonder if it's a lot of Orgeron wanting to make it "his" staff and go out and get "his" guys for certain positions.
Criminal charges and the punishment you receive on the team are two entirely separate things. He broke the law. He will be punished by the state for breaking that law. He appeared in court already. He's on notice not to do it again. If Butch feels that this offense does not warrant a serious punishment, then that's that. He doesn't have to be harshly punished. Criminal laws and private conduct are separate issues.
Wait. They were protesting at the inauguration?
How long had Juluke been with LSU? Did he play a role in developing either LF or Guice? Seems odd to relieve him of coaching duties when he was coaching an incredible RB corps. Or was he only nominally the RB coach?
Logical based on their incoming recruiting rankings. Not logical based on some of their chances to actually see the field as freshmen. Do we really think some of these incoming freshmen at Alabama are going to see serious time on the field when Bama has 5-stars from last year waiting to see the field. Plenty of these will be redshirted and won't have a chance to make All-Freshman lists.
