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.
Down 59 and they call for a TO with 10 seconds left. Gods I hate Wisky
Every game Clifton kicks one out of bounds. It is almost Shuggarts false start like
Game ball to DJ. He is the one who had the confidence in Cardale
Been waiting on our D-Line all this season. Glad they showed up tonight.
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.
^^^This. Made the same comment. Tired of seeing option on 1st down every time
Well that and most teams have schemed quicker passing attacks for the most part. Kiel was getting the ball out QUICK most of the night.
Now I just have to hope that no more black stripes get removed this year....
On the SportsCenter piece he basically says Samuel is running at 2A with Rod Smith being 2B...
Noticed several players were ranked as a "C". Is this normal for college recruits (because the "A" and "B" players just turn pro) or are we just not getting elite prospects?
Per SI - “It was just something special about Ohio State University,” McMillan said on NBCSN. “Every time I visited the school. Every time I talked to coach [Urban] Meyer on the phone. Every time I talked to coach [Luke] Fickell. Every time we sat down to talk. We just had a special bond.”
Not really Cincinnati's 6-year fight against strip clubs. The owners are trying to put the club in Athens so the Ohio U boys can find their classmates.
Yes. Monster block by Miller to let Dontre get the corner.
55 - 7 Ohio State
One of my biggest memories of CC was when he was let go by the Philadephia Eagles. I was living in Philly at the time and Buddy Ryan the coach cut him because "All he did was score touchdowns".
Not that it is important since you are only discussing relative costs but you also have to look at value etc.
A student season ticket at Alabama is extremely inexpensive but for that you get "general admission" seating between the goal posts and the 5 yard line on the SW corner of the stadium. That is it. There is no seat improvement for being a senior v a freshman etc. This means no tailgating, no going to Skull Session (if their band was smart enough to have something like this). Nope, you want a decent spot for the game you are in your seats 2 hours before kickoff just waiting.
Basketball tickets used to be free, but again were first come first served. They set aside about 4000 tickets for a 20,000 student campus and if you wanted a ticket you had to get there early.
I transferred from Alabama up to Ohio State and while I might have grumbled a bit at the cost of my tickets, that all ended once I saw my seat.
Saw an article (can't remember if it was here or Ozone) about Matta. Said Lou Holtz had told him never stay in the same job more than 7 years because people tend to start taking you for granted. If you moved to a new program every 6-8 years you did not get a rep as a part timer, and you kept everything fresh.
Nope, still just two teams from each conference. It is the reason Saban is pissed. Read yesterday that he was complaining that if they lost the game against UGa that they would probably miss out on a BCS bowl because Florida would take the second SEC slot and he did not think that was fair....
Of course it is exactly what he did last year but that was LAST YEAR.
