I heard XM CFB guys talking about Driskell today. At the Manning camp, they said his throwing motion looked much better and he was dead on with some serious deep throws.

But, they also brought up the same point that you guys have: it doesn't matter who is throwing if they don't have somebody that can catch the damn ball.

Um, Saban and Bama seem to have had some success with that style. And Muschamp is a Saban trainee. He got the defense part down first - as you would expect a defensive coach with a team loaded to the gills with talent.

I expect to see continued improvement on the offensive side as he gets more and more of his players in the system. IMO I think he is on the right track to field the best program.

Bama fans just keep repeating the mantra: Process, Process, Process.

Does the fund cover ex-Gators as well?

As of late, since Coach Boom arrived, there has been nearly the police blotter action as before. I think he has done a good job in that aspect.

BTW, kudos to the coach for a really nice snippet from the SEC Media days. I have been wanting to ask Gator fans how they feel about Muschamp compared to Meyer. And how are those feelings in light of recent events?

Thank you my brother! I consider that high praise coming from a fellow former player.

Any SEC team will be covered. Thus the title "The SEC and the Next Best 3".

The blog was started about 4-5 years ago, by me, just to breakdown upcoming SEC games. We also had Table folks doing blogs for the B1G and the Big 12. It was a way for fans of other conferences to learn about the SEC, B1G & Big 12 weekly games. As I recall, I had a couple of Table denizens make the suggestion/request. I have enjoyed doing it as it helps me to focus on each game and each team. Over the years, I have had periods when I didn't have the time to invest in doing a thorough job of the blog, and others around the Table have stepped in - and done great jobs.

The Next Best 3 came as a suggestion from Norka - as well as the title of the blog itself. The goal there was for the Table members to suggest three NON-SEC matchups for me to pit my football acumen against. Suggestions for the games were thrown out and bandied around until a consensus was reached - or I just picked 3.

To be honest, the NB3 became the most challenging part. The SEC teams I became very familiar with over the course of the season, so after the first couple of weeks I had a fairly good working knowledge each team. The NB3 though was often 6 different teams each week. This meant I had to really scramble to find out all I could about the teams before the weekly Thursday deadline. However, it is great fun and by the end of the season I would find that I knew more about the CFB universe than I ever had.

All of this is a bit of an explanation for some the Table folks that are new.

Speaking of Fales, an article about him:

Noted. I always poll the Table crowd for the NB3, so keep those suggestions coming.

Did Johnny Football stomp on his crank again? The first reports said he missed drills, etc. because of hangover. Then it was that he was sick. Now, supposedly, there are reports that he was seen out partying at College Station the same night that he left.

What do you guys think?

You can bet that SEC Media Days is going to be a hoot. I live about 10 miles from where they are having it. Were it not for the crowds and utter madness I might be tempted to go just to see the circus.

The other day I heard guys on XM radio's College Sports station arguing over exactly how many days are left till kickoff.

I don't know th exact number, but anything over 7 is just too many.

Jonesing for CFB & an Irish fan? Isn't that a contradiction? I thought you guys learned in January that what y'all were playing was not REAL football?

Sorry Van, just couldn't resist needling a Irish fan! In an act of repentance I will utter ten "Hail Rockne" later.
Posted Friday July 12, 2013, About: What'll ya have?
Van, for the most part I agree with you.

However, I won't go as far as saying ALL handguns. But I don't see any reason for assault rifles with 30, 50, 100 round magazines. As for registration, I don't mind being fingerprinted, etc, or having to wait a few days. Actually make it hard to buy a gun. I have nothing to hide.

AND I am absolutely NOT a member of the NRA.

The whole debate is tough thing. Where to find a balance? But I think something has to be changed.

Don't take it wrong from the above rant. I am all for self-defense and I own guns.

I enjoy **** shooting and have a nice over-under shotgun (which will make a helluva accurate mess when loaded with 000-buck), I used to shoot competitively in the Civilian Marksmanship Program with a M1 Garand (I love that rifle) and I am rated as an "expert" with my Ruger .45 auto. I have taught my son how to shoot - safely - mostly at the local FOP range. He has a .22 bolt action and a Ruger Mark III .22 pistol.

AND if anyone tried to come into my home I would not hesitate to drop them like a bad habit. But I am not going to go out and look for trouble.

Well I can tell you that I would have gotten shot then. Cause if some strange person comes up and starts questioning me while I am walking along minding my business then can bet I would have a serious get-the-hell-outta-my-face attitude. You can call it "hot-headedness" or whatever, but last time I checked, this is still a free country and we can still come and go as we please (as long as you are not trespassing or behaving in a dangerous or reckless manner).

Conversely, if Martin had of approached Zimmerman in his vehicle in a threatening manner that would cause Zimmerman to think he was in danger, then he would have been within his rights to blow him away. Or if Martin had turned and pointed a gun or some other lethal weapon at him.

In fact, the vague way the Florida law is worded, had Martin beaten Zimmerman to death, he would have been within the stand-the-ground law. An unknown, strange adult attempted to detain him and he could have felt that his life was threatened.

You would have kept your butt in the car just like the POLICE dispatcher told you to.

The kid was walking in a public area - not illegal. Unless Zimm witnessed him in the middle of committing a felony, he had no right to stop or question him. None. Even then, as an UNTRAINED citizen, he would still have been advised to stay put. Unless there was an imminent threat of life.

As for ID, Zimmerman had no uniform and identifiable badge. He was a neighborhood WATCH person - not neighborhood APPREHEND. BTW, might I remind you that Jerry Sundusky looked and acted like a coach. Just because someone says they are "neighborhood watch" does not make them so. Pervs come in all shapes and sizes. I have told my son, and will continue to do so, if ANY strange adult, no matter what they say, run or fight like hell. Only exception is an easily identifiable police officer.

When we started the neighborhood watch group where I live, the police department came and explained what was expected. Bottom line: Observe & Report. Video if safely possible. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE ATTEMPT TO APPREHEND OR DETAIN.

Bottom line: when he got out of the vehicle, with a gun, he started to whole chain reaction.
Posted Friday July 12, 2013, About: What'll ya have?
IMO, the root of the whole thing - and what makes Zimmerman guilty in my mind - is that he got out of the vehicle, with a gun, when the police clearly told him, repeatedly, not to. Had he kept his dumb **** in the car, nobody dies, no trial, no lives and families ruined.

Instead, because this idiot wanted to play cowboy, a young man is dead, Zimmerman's life is ruined (no matter what the verdict) and a nation is divided. Just plain stupid.

Personally, if I had been the 17 year old, walking along minding my own business, and some putz came up to me like Zimmerman did, one of us would have worn a butt-whipping home. That is what I teach my son. As many pervs as there are out there, if some strange person approaches him aggressively I have told him to fight like hell - or run like hell.

I remember when I heard about his death. Really pissed me off - he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. What waste.

Different PO'd when John Belushi died. He did it to himself via self-destruction. Still a waste.

I think I knew that he had been a preacher, but did not know Pentecostal.

You gotta find it. The whole routine is a riot. It is Kinison at hie absolute best.

RIP Sam, you left us way to soon.

The best part of the whole show was "God's Own Drunk and a Fearless Man"
