SEC Basketball Power Rankings: Alabama demolishes Arkansas, Tennessee continues to roll and Florida struggles
Auburn keeps losing. I mean who cares about the last 2/3 if you’re tanking every other game for half the season.
@VoliumPlease Except that according to Pruitt's attorney he was fired without given any chance to respond to the charges by UT. It's possible they have something wrong or they have overblown his personal responsibility for any level 1 infractions. Either way it's not a good look to get emailed a 5 page single spaced email at the same time it get released to the public firing you. It screams that the University just wanted to get out of a contract rather than get to the truth.
Even last years Alabama squad only lost by a score.
It doesn't it's kind of like when Florida put in their 3rd stringer for a while and he did good for half a quarter. Every person watching on Reddit acted like Florida was crazy not to start that guy. When you change QB's, especially with no/little game tape on them, it really changes the offenses play calling and tempo. Georgia just needed a half to adjust to what Tennessee was doing. And every other team will now have that chance. Did he do good? Sure. But he was an unknown against a team that hadn't played in two weeks and was a little rusty to start.
When they changed it a couple years back it was a horrible decision. One of the writers was like, “Just get used to it and you’ll like it.” Nope. There are periods of times where I don’t come back here for like 6 months. And even then it only with the strongest of as blockers because of those horrible autoloading videos.
Yeah. I don’t get that. Alabama fans gave him standing ovations when he came out on to the field every game this season. He had our respect and appreciation. And I was rooting for him to get better and fight for the starting position.
Wait. He left the Ole Miss job for Auburn two days after saying "They’ll have to carry me out of here in a pine box." So it's ok for a coach to sneak around and leave for a job with no notice but the school has to give a coach notice to even consider firing or hiring another coach?
Luke was the hire because there weren’t going to get anyone decent during the penalties. Best decision was just to get someone cheap,”local”, that’s familiar with the program so they just promoted him thinking he will either do good enough to keep the job or more likely they will just hire someone better when the penalties on the program clear.
If he had been in the first half it would have gone completely different. He would have gotten a pick-30
So I’m not the only one reading that? He lists what was needed for it to be targeting. Says all of those things occurred but then says he wouldn’t have called it targeting.
That was my first thought. His eyes are all the way to the side while she's still almost in front of him. He doesn't have to look that hard at her in the beginning so I think he was looking at something else. It looked like someone off camera was doing something funny.
Because any money Butch makes at Alabama counts against his buyout at Tennessee. So even if Alabama gave him a salary position he wouldn’t get any more money.
So he comes off like a fan of an undefeated team? Seems accurate. Scooter just yells and screams like a crazy person with no actual thought.
Why do sports reporters keep acting like this is a strange call. It happens. Techically the play doesn’t start until the center snaps the ball. So if he’s late on the snap call and everyone else goes then they all technically are the false starters. It’s the correct call.
They do review every play but unless it’s on the goaline (where they have cameras aimed right down the line), the person went out of bounds so they gave a point of reference, or it just happens to be very clear it can be hard to tell from camera angles if it was a first down or not. They rarely overturn a down position call outside of those circumstances.
They will be able to recover all of it. As the article mentioned there is a specific office that deals with this. They’ve even been able to confirm money that was partially digested when a cow ate it. Nice clean cuts in a shredder are nothing.
A national anthem is for the military??? And here I thought it was about a nation as a whole, it's history, traditions, and struggles. Before American's even existed it started with English colonists disrespecting their own country's government and military. The history of American is a group of people that took issue with the treatment of it's history. And sitting during a song was nothing compared to what our nations heroes did to English songs, history, military. If you believe that a citizen can't speech out against his own government by sitting during a song then I have no clue how you'd be ok with America itself being started.
What are you talking about. Louisville has ended the season a top 15 team twice in the last 6 or 7 years and most of the other years been in the top 25 at the end of the year. Louisville was better than Miami was when Alabama and LSU scheduled them both years ago.
*He’s not allowed to stay at Alabama next year.
Of course he’s going to transfer at the end of the season. He’s. It allowed to stay at Alabama after this season. He will graduate transfer somewhere and I wish him nothing but the best. His strength of character is role model worthy. He came to Alabama because he wanted to be a part of something bigger than himself and even when things didn’t go his way he realized it says more about him to continue to contribute than to quit and take an easy way out. I hope he winds up with a great chance at some other school next year and will wish him the best.
The new metal detectors are slowing things down while people figure out the new process. So many people missed the start of the Alabama and Texas A&M game last weekend.
Jimbo Fisher explains final timeout with game in hand: ‘Texas A&M’s gonna play until the horn blows’
My only issue with it is that is that A&M didn’t appear to be trying to win in the 3rd quarter. It was like 38-13 or something and A&M is gonna for a field goal in the red zone. So they were planning on stopping an Alabama team that scored 38 in 2.5 quarters from scoring any more and then A&M would have to score more in 1.5 quarters than they had all game. Nope. If A&M was playing for the win they had to at least attempt tds from the redzone. But at the end of the game he’s taking 2 time outs in the final 3 seconds an going for TDs against Alabama’s 2nd string. Fine. Play to win. But hat doesn’t mean you need to extend the game artificially which only risks injuries to both teams and why go for TDs when you weren’t earlier when they could have kept a game reachable. He just was desperate to try and put as many points up as he could. And he risked his players to do it. Alabama was playing 60 minutes too but we weren’t running two minute offenses in garbage time.
His anger came from the fact that he is been askeded that question hundreds of times this off-season. He has answered it the exact same way every time and has actually started getting pretty firm with other reporters as well. She as a reporter knowing all of that still decided to try to push him to change his answer. Yes she asked to calmly but she was absolutely being rude. They were hoping for something like this and they knew to expect him getting angry after asking it over and over and over and over and over. It gets old. When the only solution is for a coach to come up with an answer that the media wants when he obviously feels it’s against his team and players best wishes that’s when the media is being the bully.

It’s what happens when you don’t have all the info because OSU withholds the report until midnight after the coach gets to speak. At the time we were surprised by the 3 game suspension but then the report comes out afterwards where they show behavior that would have gotten any other coach fired but Urban gets a slap on the wrist in comparison. Even if you assume we won’t ever know what abuse did or did not take place if you read the things Urban let Zach get away with while representing OSU then you have to find a three game suspension light. The man was taking high school coaches to strip coins, having sex toys come into the office, taking illegal drugs and then when Urban says he has to take a ten day rehab course Zach skips out after four days and Urban still doesn’t report it Zach missed multiple recruiting visits because of illegal drug use and affairs, Then Urban tries to claim he’s dory and his medicine keeps him from remembering things and that’s why he lies. Urban says that he has memory issues and that’s one of the reasons why he lied. So that means that we can’t trust anything that ever comes out of his mouth going forward unless he comes off his meds. It means OSU cant trust him to report things because like Dory he claims to forget them. And yet a three game suspension is good enough for them.
Ohio State findings: Urban Meyer seems to have deleted his old text messages before handing over phone
He was probably specifically looking to only delete ones over one year. He probably figured that he wouldn’t be in much trouble if he didn’t delete them all. Its a public phone owned by the school. He’s not supposed to delete any of them but I guess the older than a year only to cause gave OSU the excuse they needed not to care.
Kirk Herbstreit suggests idea for every college football program to better monitor issues off the field
But the problem wasn’t that no one knew about it. It’s that OSU employees hid and covered it up. Who cares if they have someone investigating if the person they turn it into just buries it.
Just to be clear you’re saying you’re not a cock tease?
So if he had tried to buy the PED's but got caught before he took them or if he bought some placebo's that he thought were PED's and got caught buying them then it would have been a one year penalty. But he actually took them right? That's two years. That makes sense.
