clearly there's a lot going on with Illinois but if it's true that Beckman was compromising player safety THEY FINALLY STOOD UP AND DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.  everybody talks about it - as they send the wobbly player back into the game (I'm looking at you Hoke) but these guys said "this isn't right and we won't put up with it any more.  season opener in seven days or not - we're canning him."

good for them!

* we ran the Spencer reverse pass against Sparty ... but he didn't throw it.  hauled it down and ran it.  weren't you watching Bama?

* that devastating counter play with Ezekiel that Oregon defenders still see in their nightmares was being unveiled by the ttun game, we just weren't running a wide receiver by to put the fake jet sweep action on it.  but it was there ... because our O line was devastating.

* the improvement in the line was incredible.

* the db made the plays they needed to get stops and get us off the field on third down.  we all complain about that punter from Bama (I hate him so much) but the reason he punted so much is because we got off the field.  kudos to the D!

*ESPN doesn't hate us or love us.  they hate red ink and love money.  that means they will always use us because we provide a huge base of clicks and eyeballs.  if they can get those by mocking us they will.  if they can get those with a marathon they will.  but we will always be on their radar because we can make them cash.

and I can't wait for the season to start!

As a fellow Buck in the Lone Star State I can't upvote this enough.  For a team with one NC in the last 45 years that Bunch in Austin sure do act like they are something mighty special....

Maybe someone mentioned this but I'm against an 8 team playoff because that puts the teams in a 15 game sked, with the last three against the best teams in the nation.  Anybody want to play again AFTER beating Oregon?!  I think the teams would have to give up a cupcake game early in the season to get it down to 14 games.  And no, I'm not making the academics argument (bogus) ... I'm just saying there is a lot of wear and tear on these kids.  That Bama game was Big Boy Football there...

if they had pulled out a win I would have aruged that kid was their MVP.  he was incredible and really kept us bottled up.  I really got some serious hate for him...  ;-)

I'll bet NFL scouts are drooling for him...

I'd argue the Texas Longhorns do even less ... one championship in 45 years.  But I see your point.  Bama is loaded every year and ... they have some big time fails on big time stages (hello Utah, OU and us).  Maybe it's teams in red that are their kryptonite...

Wow.  I wasn't a big fan of Cowherd but after that I must admit I kinda am!  That was hilarious!

Please stop this kind of common sense posting.  There just isn't room for it, or much call for it, on the Internets these days.

Bingo all the way around.  They just entertain.  They're just funny and goofy and they TALK SPORTS.  I love me some M & M.

Is this the Helen who calls in on Finebaum's show all the time?  SEC speed wins again...

Gonna miss Mark May's antics like you miss having the stomach flu ... NOT!

Seems like ESecPN seems to have gotten the message that (1) there is football in parts of the country other than the south and (2) hacking off a big fanbase just because really doesn't work.

As a consolation, we'll always have that wonderful time after the Ark Sugar Bowl when we booed him off the set.  Good-bye and good riddance!

and this is why it's a downer to live in the south.  our TJ Maxx is full of Longhorn and Aggie stuff...  you miss out on these kind of deals.  sad face.

but it is 65 in January and I do get to golf all year around (so there is that)...

And the Gunners take the FA Cup!  Welcome here or not Arsenal WINS!

I tried some Skyline Chili at a Reds' game a couple of weeks ago.  Picked up daughter from grad school when semester ended and we did six MLB games in six days at a six different stadiums.  Wonderful father-daughter trip.

So we tried Skyline at GAMB (which is a fabulous ballpark) and we liked it.  It's good!  Our only confusion was "why is it called chili?"  There's nothing chili about it.  As Texans we know about chili - and it has to have CHILI PEPPERS in it to be - wait for it - called "chili."

In Texas Skyline Chili would be called "Sloppy Joes."  And again, I got no problem with them.  They are good.  Apart from this semantic misunderstanding I love'em and would eat them all the time.  #SkylineGreatness

Matt Millen?!  He's dreadful and any time he makes a comment all I can think is "You drafted a WR five years in a row IN THE FIRST ROUND for the Detroit Lions who were the worst team in professional football.  What can you possibly know about football?"
