You know what’s funny, I’ve seen stuff like that brought up when Alabama folks talk trash about Auburn for rooting for Clemson and they try to deny rooting for Oregon. Those Bama fans must not understand the internet yet because that simply doesn’t disappear with time. All it takes is one person posting an example and you hear nothing else from the Bama folks. It’s only ok when they do it, obviously!
“I don’t care who they play against, I always root against my team’s rival. Anyone who can root for a team that’s the biggest rival of their own team simply isn’t a true fan.” See how it works the other way, too? In other words, a personal opinion doesn’t dictate how much of a fan someone else is or not.
Sorry, but the “he ruined the Falcons offense” argument is horrible at best. You’re trying to compare coaching in the NFL to college, which is laughable. I seem to remember Saban not being cut out for NFL coaching either, but he seems to do just fine dominating the college football world in coaching most of the time. I don’t have a dog in this hunt, but it’s sad to see people use a non-argument to try and prove that he’d be a horrible hire.
“They threw me into public!” Couldn’t help but think of that. Public intoxication? Not exactly the crime of the century here, folks. I see a lot of people being judgmental online, and I’d bet that a lot of them, just like me, got drunk in college and were in public but were lucky enough to not get caught. I think it’s also safe to say if he played for someo like Tulsa or Miami of Ohio, this wouldn’t be as big of a deal. Gotta love social media!
That’s what I was about to say, whether he can color or not doesn’t matter when he can be a big part of helping his team beat anybody they play, whether it’s going undefeated in the ACC, embarrassing an undefeated team that doesn’t have a conference in the first round of the playoffs or the best that the SEC has to offer in the National Championship.
Hey Bama boy, this is about Alabama, not Arkansas. You must’ve read the article and realize that. What you’re doing is called deflecting. What that means is, when someone realizes they’ve lost the argument, they try to point the topic in a new direction because they don’t want to admit being wrong. It’s a common tactic used by children (an example being “but he hit me first!”) and by liberals... which are just adults with the mind of a child. So, it’s not at all surprising that you’d do it lol. Oh, I know you’ll wait and are happy to do so, since you spend most of your time here anyway. Sorry to disappoint, but I’m not going to take the bait and let you deflect. It boils down to the fact that I, along with many other college football fans, which includes some Alabama fans, are criticizing Saban because of that idiotic fake FG and the biggest screw up, leaving Tua in even though Clemson was embarrassing him... especially after he wasn’t afraid to pull Jalen during the championship game last season when he wasn’t doing great. Not to mention the fact that if it wasn’t for what Jalen did, Alabama wouldn’t have even won the SEC championship against Georgia. We all know that you’re lying to yourself when you defend those calls Nick made... I’d hope that’s the case anyway, and that you’re not really that stupid. Though, you’ve proven that too so who knows.
If you’re unfamiliar with BamaTime, I’ll fill you in. He gets his feelings hurt if you do anything but praise Alabama or Saban and feels like he has to see who your team is and talk bad. He’s been doing this for years. He’s really a sad little man. I feel sorry for him.
LOL you crack me up. I remember you saying something about me using bad language on this site once, and look at you lol. Oh, don’t pretend you didn’t read it, because we both know you have nothing better to do. Go enjoy the ass-kicking Bama/Saban received. As you always do, you came back for the last word, but that’s because what other people say here doesn’t bother you lol. Poor child. Try and not get upset today because of stuff Internet strangers say to you, you’ll be much better off, kiddo!
Lol I see BamaTime still hangs around here getting his panties in a wad anytime anyone says anything about Saban that isn’t praiseworthy. You’ve only been doing that for years now. Surely you saw where I prefaced it with it being rare that Saban makes poor coaching decisions. I know all that matters to you though is pitching a fit (as proven here and your years of doing so on SDS) when someone dares to criticize him. News flash: he’s not perfect, nobody is. That means, yes, he can make mistakes. That was proven in the championship against Clemson. Not only was Clemson the far better team, but Saban made some bad decisions that didn’t help things. Even other Bama fans have been commenting a lot on these two examples, leaving Tua in and going for the fake FG. You’re lying to yourself if you try to say that was smart, especially the way the Clemson D shut Tua down compared to what he usually does. I feel bad for you. As much as you whine here and take things so personally. Unhappy people only feel happy by trying to make others miserable. Just an FYI, by doing that you’re only upsetting yourself and not the Internet stranger who offended you. Why am I making such a long post about it? Simple, because it’s sad that someone is that unhappy, and here’s to hoping you make some changes for your own sake.
I don’t blame him a bit for wanting to transfer. Nick Saban doesn’t often make poor coaching decisions, but he sure did with Jalen. If not for Jalen saving Tua’s rear, Georgia would most likely be SEC champions. I sure remember last year’s playoff championship game when Jalen struggled and Saban took him out and brought Tua in. Tua had a horrible first half against Clemson. So many people thinking “ok, time to see if Jalen can do what he did against Georgia since Tua’s out there choking.” However, we all saw the stupid decision that was made to leave him in. The kicker was him finally putting Jalen in the game when it was too late in the game and Alabama was down by four TD’s. That made absolutely zero sense. All of that to say, Jalen deserves better than that. I’m sure he’ll end up somewhere with a coach who will appreciate what he has and use him. God bless, Jalen!
Even keel? Sure, UCF was missing their biggest player, their qb, but that doesn’t equal LSU missing 9 players. IMO, LSU was down a lot more talent than UCF and still took care of business. That, along with the 2 td’s early on, they had their opportunity and still couldn’t win. With two complete teams? I think it’s safe to say that with two complete teams, LSU would’ve embarrassed even worse. It feels so weird, like this is backwards, me defending LSU to a Tiger fan lol.
Cajun Dan, perfectly stated. You’re exactly right.
Well, evidently you read it...
I hope this is a parody list. Georgia vs Texas in 6th? At worst it should be the 3rd best, but IMO, it’s #2. Also, Georgia- please don’t just beat Texas, I want to see you embarrass the Horns. It’ll make life a little better for me having to live around so many fans of the puke orange who are always saying that their team would have no problems with the SEC. That’s when I remind them they couldn’t even beat Arkansas during the Bielema years.
I’m with Tiger TD on this one. It’s a ridiculous, inaccurate comparison to compare someone fighting in war to playing football. The whole point about being responsible for your future too. If you have an excellent shot at going to the NFL, which isn’t the case for the overwhelming majority of cfb players (between 1-2% go pro) then I have absolutely no problem with you sitting out for a bowl game. If you get hurt, we know what happens to your chances of getting drafted. That means millions of dollars out the window all because you wanted to play in the -insert bowl here- game? I can guarantee you that once you find out you can’t ever play again you won’t be saying “well, I might’ve missed out on my dream, going to the NFL and making millions of dollars, but at least I was able to play a couple quarters of that college bowl game!” Good stuff again, Tiger TD!
I echo your fellow Mizzou fan. Yes, he’s very good. Putting him together with Bryant? Especially Nance being able to do during some of what has been bad times for Arkansas’ offense/Arkansas football as a whole. So, to me, that’s just downright scary, especially since Arkansas is gonna have to face that duo. Oh well, I’m glad it’s still close to a year away. Also, a sincere congrats to y’all and the rest of the Mizzou Tiger Nation!
He falsified nothing. Video shows Cole acting like a piece of **** pushing or punching or whatever you want to call it Kragthorpe in the chest. Video also clearly shows Cole hitting Faulk in the face, followed by Battle decking Cole (which he most certainly had coming. It’s expected to defend your team, but when someone who represents it behaves this horribly? You call it for what it is. It makes you look trashy by defending it. What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong. If you fail to admit it, you won’t be respected. If you do, then you will. That applies to life in general.
I love lamp!
Um, I’m pretty sure Finebaum is the one who brought Alabama up, along with Auburn, not Clark. All he did was answer a question. He simply said that he doesn’t see them playing “Alabama Tuscaloosa.” Is that what upset you to the point of trying to trash talk him. Another UCF? I never heard Clark claim that UAB is the national champion, do your participation trophy comment makes zero sense. However, a 9-1 record is mighty good. Funny, you accuse him of whining (in so many words) which he never did, but you sure did a good job of it.
He’s lying too regarding no internet. If he has a smart phone he has internet. Let’s say he doesn’t for arguments sake. He has to use the internet for his job, if for nothing else for email alone. Stupid thing to say.
The Cowboys are my NFL team, but there’s no coach in the NFL (or any other level/league for that matter) who I enjoy listening to when addressing the media than Bill B. His vague “whatever” and monotonous tone in every interview is hilarious to me. I think anyone who has listened to him very much wouldn’t call this not being transparent, but instead, it’s just him being Bill. Too funny.
You know what’s beautiful about this? Long and Bielema are no longer at Arkansas... along with the Allen brothers. It still feels so good to say that!
It doesn’t seem that Arkansas State will ever stop begging for this game. Arkansas has nothing to gain and everything to lose from playing them, unlike ASU.
You know things are bad when I breathed a sigh of relief seeing that Arkansas' ranking isn't triple digits.
Wow, that's really wise. There's a reason he's the most successful coach in college football. I didn't even see Saban's need to explain himself regarding waiting to prepare for LSU, but I get that it's a respect thing. Anyone who questions the decision really doesn't have a leg to stand on. I mean, you can't criticize a coach who's leading an undefeated team, wiping the field with opponents, on top of the SEC and #1 in all of college football.
Self-portrait on his shirt, not face.
My favorite is one I received last week not even as a meme, a picture of BB wearing that white jacket/shirt whatever it is with the Razorback on it that he's been wearing and something about him deciding to wear his self-portrait on his face. I will always support the Razorbacks and what's best for them, that being Bret gone and Austin Allen losing his starting position. Getting rid of Jeff Long for a new AD would be great, too, but I won't hold my breath. Next Saturday at Alabama will be brutal. I expect them to break records against Arkansas.
Tye Richardson - Thank you, thank you, thank you. The thanks are for writing an article on the biggest problem with Arkansas football, Bret Bielema. I've caught so much crap from fellow Razorbackers the past four seasons for criticizing him. Don't get me wrong, I hoped for the best. However, since that didn't work out, it's nice especially seeing so many fellow Razorback fans finally admit that he's not getting the job done and needs to go, a feeling of vindication you could say. One big fault that deserves mentioning is his love affair with the Allen family. I could go on for a while with specifics, but I'll point out a couple of glaring instances. In the blown lead @Mizzou, Brandon was hurt. In the second half when the momentum had clearly shifted and BA was noticeably hurt and his performance at QB had drastically declined, not only did BB fail to take him out, but someone who's supposed to be the team captain should do what's best for the team and take himself out of the game. Well, we all know what happened there. I'll just use last Saturday's TCU game for an Austin Allen example. He overthrew receivers over and over. Even after plays in which it was clear that he overthrew his receiver, you could see him motioning to them as if it was their faults for not being at least 10 ft tall and jump like Michael Jordan to catch his horrible passes. It's pathetic because there are two backups who, given the chance, could very easily be much better than AA's ever thought about being at QB if given the chance. Not sure what BB's love affair with this family, but for the sake of Arkansas football, the Bielema/Allen dynasty needs to end. Oh, I can't leave out his postgame comments assigning blame to everyone except for himself as head coach, especially when your FG kicker had already missed a chip shot after not going for it on 4th and goal from around the five and everyone there (probably most at home, too, including myself) booed the horrible decision, he does the same thing later on except from the 2. That's a big slap in the face to your offense, saying "I don't trust you." Looking back, knowing that Arkansas lost anyway, part of me is glad he missed the second kick for the simple reason that it made BB look like an idiot and worked out as a "that's what you get" moment.
I'm sure the game lost plenty of viewers and/or listeners thanks to the audio problems the SEC Network had at the beginning of the broadcast. I'm so glad that was the only game the Razorbacks play at War Memorial this season, two home stadiums is very dumb.
