Umm...it's Monday :) But otherwise great article.
Come on. Nicky is like 5 foot tall. Calling him a grown anything is pushing it.
Of all the one and done's his NBA career continues to be the most mind blowing. Next thing you know Byron "Don't call me B.J." Mullins will sign a max deal with to leave the D-League
What in the wide wide world of sports is a going on here?
In the "over hyped so much they are just never able to match the word of mouth" group

2. Any Star Wars "prequel"
3. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - there I said it.
4. Godfather Pt. 2
The "god no, not another _______ movie" group
1. Adam Sandler ... and he gets more down votes for continuing to employ Rob Schnieder
2. Jim Carrey

The "more to the story" is simple. He was warned about his benefit by the NCAA and Baylor.
So according to what I read we signed 6 OL this year...and 5 last year. I remember years under Boll-rus that we did not have 10 linemen total, much less 11 F/S. Is our plan to just play one line for a quarter, then roll out the starters and grind down the opponents? Not that I have a problem with this plan mind you.
Weber picks the Good Guys. Nothing but good news
This should work
Poor Andrea Adelson....0-fer the playoffs
This is typical "RTR Bama fan" behavior. I have never met a fan base that basically felt they were entitled to be the champion every year. It does not matter who they are facing, what their record is, nothing. There are only 2 truths in life - 1. We are Bama and 2. It is always our championship.
After living in the state for 13 years I was very happy to leave the mentality. They epitomized the 'if we win, it shows we are better than you. if we lose, well we weren't really up for the game and it did not mean anything' fandom.
I understand the call even if I do not agree with it. Bama stacked the line, we were not getting a first down. He figured surprise them with a pass...if we complete it we can run MORE time off the clock (or score). However, in that situation time is more important than yardage
Problem was not the call, the problem was it did not work.
Shame I can not upvote this even more.
Herbie said the same thing. FSU gave up, and honestly after 5 TO's in a half it is hard to think karma did not catch up with them. I worry about their pace but I do not doubt this team.
Editor Note - We only scored 8 in the 4th. The quarter by quarter scoring above equals out to 46 not 42
Believe Banana was joking - he ended his "sarcasm font" at the end of his post. He was referring to the SI-Cover Jinx...and the general 'Get on the Cover of anything sports related and you are due for an injury' belief.
After spending 10+ years in Birmingham my only comment is that when DOESN'T Alabama think their games are going to be blowouts. Most Crimson Tide fans I know think that the only chance the Seattle Seahawks would have in a game against Bama is if Saban played his second stringers out of mercy.
I received my MBA (and I am working on my Ph.D.) at UAB. Trust me it is majorly dysfunctional and there is literally nothing we can do about it. The students have been pushing to "break away" from the Board and the UA system for the past 5 years, but to do it will take a constitutional amendment - which will never pass.
Tuscaloosa will play opponents from the same conference (and same division) as UAB but flatly refuse to play UAB. They refuse to invest in the program and then wonder why it is not self sufficient - forgetting that about 80% of all programs are not. When UAB tried to build an on-campus stadium (instead of using one in the slums) a few years back they were told to basically stop trying to play football and work on improving their medical school. So last year they forced out the president and appointed the Dean of the medical school as the President and this is how he thanked them.
They did with Pelini - DC at Oklahoma and LSU. And if you are going for someone with HC experience, they will probably end up with the flavor of the month in the MAC...and the B1G has way too many failed MAC coaches in their ranks (Beckman, possibly Hazell...don't need a third). Get the hot OC - probably offense (Herman..or way worse for us Warriner) and see what he can do.
46 - 21
That was real authentic frontier gibberish. And I am proud that some of our young people were in attendance.
Rittenberg just tweeted that GameDay is a go for East Lansing
My old boss is a big time TSUN fan. I asked him who the next coach was and his comment was that they were a basketball school now. They decided they could not compete with the demographics saying everyone was leaving the north and they had better luck getting 7-8 kids to play basketball than the numbers needed for football.
Right now we have to see one more year. True sophmore iirc, and so not three years since his HS graduation.
