  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

You and Weimerad below seem to be on the same page. How come I get the feeling the staff felt he and Ferns's measurables were the same and took Borland first (or have heard other news about Ferns)?

I remember it the other way, especially with MIami, MSU and PSU. Some bad games defensively for sure, but the offense seemed God-awful throughout, save for Wisky and Michigan.

I wonder how much of timing of this was coreographed by the coaches? I don't care either way, but one thing that I've noticed with Meyer and Co. is a director's touch in manipulating the image that is taken from a big announcement. I can't be sure, but it seems like he definitely tries to avoid being jilted on NSD, for example, by moving on from some recruits or taking commitments from others to take their spots. It definitely shows savvy.

You don't even need to remember it correctly. OJ Simpson's trial was the only story for two years and was debated long after.

Calling out ESPN for this is silly.

We needed for Cardale to be fearless in that game, mistakes be damned. If he comes out tentative, Bama's defense would have had a different swagger. He put them on their heels and Landon Collins on his ass.

The most recent National Geographic had a nice spread on this and his life. As is usually the case with the publication, good stuff.

Showing my age, but UNC-Georgetown NCAA Final with Jordan, Ewing, Worthy, Sam Perkins, Sleepy Floyd, etc. I mean, that's a friggin' insane amount of talent on one court.
