Posted Friday March 28, 2014, About: NFL coach pans Manziel's 'sideshow'
He was the only person that thought it was a bad performance. There were a lot of folks there who were impressed with his throws and skills. Actual NFL people who know a thing or two about football. Of course, knowing something about football leaves the Vikes out of any conversation...
Posted Sunday March 02, 2014, About: Nick Saban: I had nothing to do with 10-second rule idea
Most of you have no idea what this rule would do. It's 10 seconds from the previous play being blown dead...not from when the ball is spotted. There are maybe 5 plays a game that this rule would affect. That's it. And most of those are under 2 minutes, so it wouldn't even come into play. But what it would do is prevent the offense from running to the line and snapping the ball why the defense gets set. If you think the defense can make mass substitutions in this 10 second time frame, you're nuts. All it does is allow the defense to get set. You think it's fair for the offense to be able to 'quick pitch' the defense? I'll bet the farm there wouldn't be any less plays per game. Maybe 5 at most.

If you think health and injuries aren't a part of the hurry up offense, you are idiots. 60 plays per game vs 80 plays per game. That means there are 33% more opportunities to get hurt every game.

Chance will kick his **** up one side of the street and down the other...

I have a feeling the hire of Lane Kiffin may be one of the most brilliant moves ever made by any head coach. I'm not sure how long Alabama will be able to keep him, but as long as they have him, he will be a force to be reckoned with. Forget his offensive coaching skills...focus on his recruiting skills. He never missed on a recruit at USC. This guy can recruit.
Posted Monday February 17, 2014, About: Five-star LB holding out for MSU
I don't understand that kid's mother. It's not like MSU is a BAD school. The young man will be able to make all his own choices soon...I would think she would want to be in on some of those. She needs to get behind him soon or lose him. His dad is on board with this...even though he doesn't agree with the choice of school. He supports his son.

What would be great is if every single other school pulled their offers. Force the mother to accept the only offer on the table. Maybe she should take a look at Landon Collins...that hasn't worked out too bad for him.

Knowing Donna Shalala, I wouldn't be surprised if that institution graduated him

Good God. Are you kidding me?

What an absolutely horrific comment to make. One of the most tasteless and irresponsible remarks I've ever seen here.

And...he will be able to work some other place than that screwed up environment. I wonder if they can ever hire an athletic director that has a clue on how to run a program.
Posted Friday January 24, 2014, About: Can Saban keep Alabama's top prospect?
If the kid is smart, he will look long and hard at CNS's offer. His chances of being a 1st round NFL pick are much higher, he will be pushed to obtain his degree, and he can be part of a championship. Not sure CGM can deliver any of that.

He has a better chance of winning a conference championship with PSU than Vandy. No way they win the SEC. But PSU has a legitimate shot at the Big 10...even with sanctions.

Go to Texas John. Pay is better and nothing like working with those kids.
Posted Wednesday December 11, 2013, About: Boise State closing on a new coach
I went to high school with Dirk. Nice guy. But he's had his bite at the apple. I would be shocked if they took a step backwards. What makes you think this time would be different?
Posted Thursday November 07, 2013, About: New OC in Gainesville?
Man...Pease had OC offers from Florida and Alabama...and chose Florida. Saban had to move on to Nussmeyer. Thank God. Sometimes gifts come in hidden packages...
Posted Saturday October 19, 2013, About: RGIII flip-flops on using sideline to draw penalties
Shanahan still can't sleep at night over having to take this clown. He wanted Luck so bad. Luck is another Elway...as he's already proving.
Posted Monday October 07, 2013, About: Schaub's future in doubt
I'll bet you money Kube's is on the phone to Josh Freeman this morning. He would be an upgrade to what they have.
Posted Saturday October 05, 2013, About: Cowboys don't expect to have Miles Austin vs. Broncos
I'm a big Broncos fan, but this is going to be closer than you think. Denver's defense is just too decimated and they are playing in the 'Boys house. 42-38...and I'm not sure who will have the 42...
Posted Wednesday September 18, 2013, About: Eddie Lacy may not return until Week 5
No excuse for allowing that guy to stay in the game. One of the most deliberate, vicious hits I've ever seen. By not flagging the play, you basically said to the guy "hey...it must be ok with these refs so I'll do it again"...and he did. At least it was him hurt this time. But to allow someone to steal someone's career like that is just flat wrong.

Don't be so sure he will be back in week 5. They are so careful with concussions these days that if there are ANY lingering affects, he won't play. He could miss several weeks. The good thing is, he never had a concussion at Alabama, so this may be his first. That makes it quicker and easier to get him back on the field.
Posted Tuesday September 17, 2013, About: Controversial tweet has Bielema on the defensive
I think if the truth were to come out about what Barry Alvarez put them through...about what he's like to work for...everyone would understand her comment. I think the world got a glaring look into his arrogance and personality...and it wasn't pretty. The way he handled the entire Rose Bowl fiasco was a joke. He acted like he was the 2nd Coming the way he insisted on coaching the team and that there was NOBODY who could do the job that he could. Getting his **** kicked was one of the greatest moments of the entire bowl season. He could have been graceful and allowed an assistant take the helm...he could have let Gary Andersen be involved, he had several options. Nope...his ego wouldn't allow it. I think Bret Bielema couldn't get out of there soon enough. He jumped at the chance to go ANYWHERE decent.
Posted Sunday September 15, 2013, About: UT fans boo Mack Brown PSA ad on Jumbotron
I just don't understand how a school so rich in history...so demanding of it's athletes...so set on winning...puts up with this mediocrity. When you have what Texas can offer, why would you put up with Mack Brown? He can no longer recruit, he can't put together a game plan, he can't hire coaches...what in the world can he do??? Right now, A & M is putting it to the 'horns in every aspect of the game. It's going to get worse folks. Until you get rid of Brown, you are going to see the best recruits go to College Station. Sumlin can coach.

If you think for a second Greg Robinson is your defensive answer...God help you. He has failed at every stop he's ever had. In fact, I don't think you have a coordinator on staff that could be considered elite or has any decent head coaching prospects. How come Nick Saban can hire the best coordinators in the country year after year and Texas can't? How do other coaches poach the best recruits right out from under the nose of Brown? Folks, there are so many glaring holes in Mack Brown, he looks like Swiss cheese. Put your egos aside and move on. Maybe Muschamp will come back. Hell...Patrino would be a HUGE upgrade! Don't bet on Saban, he's not coming. So go get the best of what's left and start winning again.
Posted Wednesday September 11, 2013, About: Lee on players-only meeting: 'Kiffin don't know'
Boy I guess. Says a lot about the academic quality of USC doesn't it. Of course, this isn't limited to just USC. I remember Bum Phillips having to give Earl Campbell a tutor so he could speak to the press properly. This was after 4 years at Texas. I truly think there should be some sort of academic progress testing. For God's sake...a 2nd or 3rd year college student should be able to read, write, and speak with the English skills of a 3rd grader.
Posted Wednesday September 04, 2013, About: Champ Bailey returns to limited practice
Let's waive him and see how long he lasts. He's still one of the best corners in the league...and maybe the best ever since Dion refused to tackle anyone. He may end up moving to safety...but he's still one of the best. Oh yea...if you are having to cover up for other deficiencies in your secondary, you can look bad yourself.
