Thanks for joining in, Mike, but you're wasting your time with him. Ask anyone. It's like arguing against a really dumb brick wall.
They both like hoodies, so this is a perfect match. Seriously, though, if Cam can stay healthy, this could be another evil genius move by Belichick. Why the heck did all the other teams pass up taking a flyer on him?
I like the vibe of those Herschel and Tebow jersey responses. By appearance, the others could be from literally any game. It's like choosing between a guitar Pete Townshend recorded Tommy with, and one that he smashed to bits. I'll take the latter.
Something that may have been forgotten about Florida that year: if Lane Kiffin had an ounce of coaching acumen and beaten Notre Dame, Florida would've most likely had the pleasure of getting waxed by Alabama in the BCS title game.
I don't know about "overrated". Overpaid? Looking at his record, yeah, definitely. But I think most of us that follow college football have him rated pretty accurately: a middling coach that can't seem to get over the hump and win the big games.
A lot of talented receivers played in that Fun n' Gun offense, and he was one of the best. His younger brother was pretty good, too. R.I.P. And please, guys, don't feed the trolls.
I watched a lot of big time Florida-Auburn games with him prowling the sideline. To me, he WAS Auburn. Also, I really enjoyed his interviews in "Saturdays in the South". The cadre of old-school SEC coaches of which he was a part is getting ever smaller. R.I.P.
@Red and Black Lighten up, Francis. Remember Jake from State Fromm? You guys are way too sensitive about this whole 5th round thing.
Yeah, read the original article, ignoring what Bratton wrote. It makes much more sense.
His job depends entirely on enthusiasm for and interest in the product he represents. No surprises here.
Not just losing $1.8 million here. Giving up a home game means losing the gate for that day, and thousands of people—from stadium workers, to security, to hotel workers—also lose money. Hey, I get it, competitively speaking, it's an awesome move. I'm just thinking about the whole picture.
I worry about that kid. He's had a lot of knocks.
Their QB Rich Campbell was supposed to be a Heisman candidate that year. Until he met Florida's D.
I make the best steaks this side of anywhere, and I loved "WKRP in Cincinnati" when I was a kid. I'm you're chef, Joe.
Funny, but it seems we don't think much about our schools' academics until someone makes fun of our schools' academics. Hey, I have an idea: "MondaysThruFridaysDownSouth.com".
Since they're adding analysts, one guy on Reddit suggested: "Get Grossman as 'the minister of f*** it and chuck it' next." I about shot coffee through my nose when I read that!
I think duplication of success is necessary for use of the term "elite". I mean, Auburn went 14-0 behind a generational quarterback, but no one ever considered Gene Chizik "elite". And that in no way diminishes the incredible season LSU had, nor my enormous admiration of it. I just think writers—or anyone with an opinion on the matter—sometimes tend to get caught up in the moment.
Great read. Thanks. Fogo? Wow. Not only was that an expensive outing, the restaurant probably ran completely out of meat!
Ha ha, thanks. Yeah, I thought about trying to find out for myself, but dang it, I shouldn't have to!
Did I miss one? I thought the SEC went 8-2. For those who care: 3-1 vs. ACC 3-0 vs. Big XII (X) 2-1 vs. Big Ten (Fourteen)
So now Joe Burrow is saying the money was real? If he's serious, that a real problem. If he's joking, that's a terrible joke.
Same reason you're probably really good at something: skill, blended with experience, with a few dashes of luck.
Even in an age where we are overwhelmed by video, data and communication, I still haven't lost my sense of awe at seeing a great photograph.
Yeah, it's fake money, but it's still an idiotic thing to do, particularly in the current college football climate.
