The takes on this whole thing have gotten ridiculous (sports web sites, XM84, etc.). Why exactly is it "important" to get on the same page and stop selling "false hope" on playing football games? Seems you are either a negative Nellie or want to kill unpaid and exploited young athletes. To your point, those in charge begin with the "normal", make plans for the abnormal and adjust and execute based on the situation. Seems a lot out there getting ready for their I told you so! moment.
Might have jumped the gun a bit on this. The alumni association hosts a "tailgate" inside the alumni center before home games and at away games at some spot locally and guessing that is what they are cancelling. No word on usual tailgating around campus/the stadium. That said, wouldn't be surprised if that came down too at some point.
Funny to watch the rise of TV folks. Anyone remember him coming out for those short sit downs with Finebaum for what seemed only a couple of weeks to start? The feedback was so positive then it was whole segments, then all the time, then Nation, then national stuff and now the NFL. Good for the Big Swagu.
I hear you my friend and Mossyman and on some level I agree but I was told many many years ago as a young manager .... manage or be managed. Well the SEC, NCAA, businesses looking to set up operations and now the players are now "managing". This thing has been festering since 2001 and should have been dealt with in "calmer times" because it was simply the right thing to do on a number of levels.
Yep came down in 2016 and has at most if not all universities and a lot of cities/counties, businesses, etc. Seems it is now not "officially" displayed in more places than where it is but if all goes well tomorrow or Saturday it will not be "officially" displayed any where in the state. We'll see.
Agree, nicely done Kevin. I've nearly given up reading or watching any coverage of Covid as it always seems to end up a wall of noise and spin.
Enjoy NashvilleGator and your takes on here as usually measured and thoughtful. I appreciate the optimism but seems we are now in a race to "declare" things versus "planning to but we don't know". Guess I prefer to expect the worst and be excited when it happens versus getting too "optimistic" and have the rug pulled out. June 1 data should be interesting with a lot of states having "opened up" recently to provide for the incubation period and see if this things blows up on us. I asked my wife last night if there was a "no fans" game at Davis Wade, how many people would show up any way and "tail gate" some where/some how? Why do I think there is a good chance of that happening around Tiger Stadium or any of the SEC schools? All that said, I'll go "hopeful" with you. Should be interesting.
Never understood why this point is completely glossed over every time the NCAA bashing starts. I've never read any article as to why the schools (our schools) don't shut it down if it is so bad. I'm certainly not defending them as I think they do some pretty crazy things but apparently my school and yours think they are doing an OK job.
Not at this point and you still have to wonder what the "all clear" signal is going to look like. No new cases locally?, nationally? for a day?, month?, 3 months? ......?
It was certainly a good one. For all of the ESPN bashing (some of it justified) I don't think I've seen a bad 30 for 30 and O.J. Made in America could be the most mesmerizing thing I've ever watched. Incredibly well done.
Still not sure what "penance" folks are looking for and for what? He cheated on his wife (not for us to judge)and what the NCAA reported seemed no worse than what we all likely do, certainly no "death penalty" stuff as was predicted. Say what you want, the guy can coach and I say all of that as a State fan.
Thought that was an odd "record" as well. That said, I have enjoyed this series on each team.
Good for him. Always a big Bert guy and the best ever coach on any of the coaches film room alternative broadcasts.
Yep, heard that, Grantham and Shannon and all have said no. So still curious who is a "big time" D coordinator we could get?
I see that a lot. Curious who a "splash hire" would be as a D coordinator?
Agree and who knows. Like comparing players across eras. Not enough to say they had a really good year/team. Thought it humorous .... GOAT thrown around too much, writes GOAT article within hours of the game. Congrats and nicely done LSU. Thought Clemson might do their "NCG thing" and get you going into the game. Started that way but did "your thing" from this season and pulled away.
Thank you Dawg44 .... time will tell MidwestVol
Thank you, my thoughts as well. Only time will tell.
Took me about 24 hours to think about it and have to say now that this could be fun. Certainly more so than the last 2 years. That was painful to watch. Time will tell just how great this hire was or wasn't.
Cha-ching. This will be interesting.
Agree, think we just tried that route and didn't work out too well (Fordham aside)
Big win in 2010 and a really big win my freshman year in 74 (game actually played in Jackson as were all of our SEC games). It helped us go to the Sun Bowl back when there were about 10 bowls. Obviously haven't played much over that time span but certainly a long list of L's when we did. Funny the complaints about schedules these days (that I agree with) but in my 4 years we never played TN or Vandy, played AL, AU, LSU & OM in that same order to finish the season and FL on the 3rd Sat of Sept every year and KY and GA twice in a H&H. All of that in a 10 team league.
Bit of a strange article. I couldn't tell if it was their recruiting summary or a Lane sympathy piece. Good grief, he won some and lost some like every other program.
Always one of my favorite articles of the year. Can't imagine how much money is spent on "the committee" to come up with what is essentially the same thing for free. God bless America.
