  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

Looks lovely!

I hadn't thought about it yet.  Ever since my dumb wife went vegetarian on my passion for cooking has gone down a bit.  She was my #1 taste tester.

My little girls are getting there though.  They love my BBQ ribs.  I know how to do those dang things.  They even like my chili, though I have to make a much less-spicy version for them.

Now you got me all excited for football/autumn food!

I personally want some James Clark.  Dude has burners, and in one play in one of the many camp/practice videos we've been blessed with seeing (thanks 11W), he got big YAC because he accelerated immediately after the catch.

The one silver lining to these suspensions is we get to see who out of all these athletes and speedsters we've recruited - who until now haven't gotten a real chance to play - is going to step up and become the next star.  Paris may have an edge if he does in fact start, but any of those guys could make a crucial or big play.

I think the Bucks could still go into the CFP if they lose to Michigan provided it's a close loss and it's their only loss, and they still go to the B1G championship game and win big.  It all depends on the rest of the field (and a lot of other things), but one close loss in an away game against a rival isn't a deal breaker, if they look great the rest of the year, IMO.

Jabril is definitely an athlete.  Teams need to like double up on Jake Butt (lol Butt!) on third downs.  He is a monster.  And the RB Smith is tough to take down, he had a lot of YAC.

edit:  that comment is all positive for TTUN - lemme be clear that those are the only bright spots for them. They got some work to do.  "We're back!"  Lolololol

Agreed Kyle.  With our starting WR's out this is his best bet.  It's true that our OL and QB are eons ahead of where they were last year, this remains his best bet.  While I'm sure there will be wrinkles he will sell out on the run until we show him he can't.

One of these new guys has got to step up and make a few plays. It's the only way I see us winning.

Unless of course our D stymies the hell out of them.

This.  With everyone crowded into the box and the DB's chasing WRs one on one...isn't the middle wide open?

Hi a TE or hit Brax crossing in the middle and with one or two guys to juke, Brax is gone.

But I'm a dummy and don't know X's and O's, so maybe it's not this simple.

I am on a roller coaster ride of emotions on this one.  One minute I'm confident as hell, the next minute Bud Foster is worrying me.

Let's just get here, Labor Day, so we can put a whooping down.  I know someone will step up in the H-back or WR role and help out.  Someone's going to have a breakout game and push us over the top.

(I'm currently on the "confident" upswing of my roller coaster ride).
