I'm with TexasBucksFan. I'm not running to the grocery store like southerners in a winter rain storm hoarding water, milk, bread, and canned goods.......but I don't necessarily think we should take this lightly.
I agree with you on bumping it up to an 8 team playoff. I also think it makes sense now that the NCAA has approved autonomy for ‘Big Five’ conference schools.....those conferences should be required to have a conference championship game with the winner getting into the 8 team playoff. I'm not sure the best way to determine the 3 remaining teams but if you can eliminate the human vote/polls and the perceived strength of schedule nonsense.....then maybe we can finally see it all get played out on the field. I'm tired of each week hearing well they beat this team, and this team beat this team by this much so that means this team would beat this team. I realize some years you're going to get a lousy team pulling an upset in a conference championship game and getting in but that happens in the NFL, it happens in College Basketball and I don't think it makes it any less exciting. I also realize it could mean really good teams not getting a chance if like in the case of the SEC West there are several worthy teams......to that I say put your best teams in the championship game. I'm sure it's not perfect and there are things I've not considered but I'm over the polls and the SOS argument.
I'm in Cincy this weekend visiting my folks. If I can convince the grandparents to watch my kids for a few hours, I'll definitely swing by for the game.
More SEC Network original programming.
Photo #18 is fantastic!!! Great job and thanks for the hard work 11W team!!
One quick comment about the Marcus Smart thing. I agree, it's pretty obvious this Orr guy is himself a complete "piece of crap." On the flip side though, if Smart is lying about the racial slur having been used and he is just saying that to make an excuse for loosing his cool, well that is a pretty damning thing to accuse any person of. It's doubtful it can ever be proven either way unless someone that was in the crowd steps up and says yeah he used a racial slur. Again, it's highly doubtful that will happen. I really hope a slur wasn't used but that would make Smart a liar and I think it's equally wrong to lie and accuse someone of using a racial slur as it is for someone to actually use one. If he did use one, and it can be proven.....a lifetime ban sounds about right.
Everyone in the media forgot to make a big deal out of the race of the winning Super Bowl QB. What is this world coming to?
Chavis has always said in the past he had no interest in a HC position. I know that can always change but that's coming from the horse's mouth.
If one of the tackles he faces this year shuts him down.....there is a good chance that guy could be #1 or at least gets a long hard look from the team picking first.
Am I the only one at this point that is still rooting for Walt?
Thought the Oline play was a roller coaster ride today. Had some bad moments, Taylor Decker especially.
I'm trying to plant some of that scarlet and grey here in "Big Orange Country."
Not surprised at all to see Knoxville is Gator blue. I see UF fans all over the place here.......
The Mox has something to say about that......
I could use one of these...in my living room...
That pizza machine reminded me of this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9U2ekOVL5Q
Staples and Mandel look at four roadblocks to Alabama's repeat....
As the clock wound down, the "S-E-C, S-E-C" chants of the past seven years were replaced by "OH-IO." Alabama fans besieged The Paul Finebaum Show the next day to demand an NCAA investigation into Miller's eligibility, Meyer's offense and the officiating.
So beautiful......So poetic!!!!!!
Johnny Manziel is Rosa Parks now??? For Christ's sake. And last week all the news outlets big headline was about flippin' Beyonce getting her hair cut. Just goes to show you journalism is dead. SMH.
Really missing that (dare I say it) ESPN Training Days series they did last year. BTN should just go ahead do something like that for each team every year. Fans couldn't get enough of it last year. We ate that shit up......om nom nom.
Cool wallpaper. Know if there is a 2013 version? Meaning for people not still using Windows '98 and 800x600 resolution. ;) 1920x1200 would be nice.
Dang it! I'd picked up a #6 game-worn jersey this past winter too.
Saw Vonn Bell was wearing #7.....thought he was supposed to be #6?
Man runs marathon TWICE in one day
Welcome to the world of Ultra Running. It's nothing new and it's growing in popularity. 50k, 50mi, 100k, 100mi are some of the more popular racing distances. I'm actually training for my first 50k (31mi) race this September in Montana. You have to be someone who
enjoys can endure some pain and suffering. It's the ultimate test of endurance. The ultra community is a great group of people.....but we are all a little nutty. ;)
That Skull Session was 100% entertaining and 100% informative. Keep up the good work!!!
In tears laughing over that Scientifically Accurate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
