Yeah, once UFM finally figures out how to recruit we'll be onto something.  smh

Comment 22 Jul 2016

Yeah, I have come to the conclusion I no longer "get it" regarding personal appearance.  The number, placement and design of tats...and every time I see some of those kids I think "Damn, I'm glad I don't come from a part of the country where everybody's so poor there are no barbers...or even a pair of scissors."   ;-)

Guess I'll just sit on the porch and yell at the damn kids to get off my lawn.

Surprised?  Must be a kid who remembers nothing prior to 2002.  A lot of tough moments in our past to go with the glory.

And as far as excuses go, they are irrelevant.  You play who's on your schedule, regular season or bowl season.  There is no such things as the hypothetical perfectly matched opponents.

I agree, Power 5 or not, money or not, Univ or Houston just doesn't stroke the ego of an ambitious man.  It's simply not the pinnacle of the profession.

I strongly suspect he has his eyes on a very top job and will make the career moves to get there if he can.

Ehhh...the Dobbins thing will work out.  UFM will reinforce the philosophy and provide some clarity of thought.  It's not like we're going to pass on a stud RB in '18 or '19...so you're gonna compete to see the field regardless in C-bus.  Does it really matter if you're competing with Akers or "Insert Other Stud Name Here"?

I can understand the kid's position completely.  Frankly, in his shoes I'd take all 5 regardless of my commitment/intentions...just to see the great games and enjoy the 5 weekends.

Whitfield is just adding to the avalanche.  Just what Junior High's need...parents who start jockeying kids to places like IMG to get ready for those upcoming big Freshman seasons of high school.

I'm not condoning anything, but as said by many...two sides to every story.  ​Odd the cops did not arrest, but a protection order was filed.

Stupid move by Dunn.

And as far as stupid goes, if she was frightened of him, why the hell go back, confront him and tell HIM to get out (she was already out when she made that decision).  Not a bright move regardless of how it would have or did work out.

Nope...Fly Bait and a can of Coca Cola in a pie pan.  Will kill 'em stone cold in about 2 steps after drinking.

The beauty is that it is a known rural cure for raccoons.  I've used it on the farm.  Put it out and prepare to get rid of raccoon carcasses.  Pit bulls will be just as dead.

Urban is creating a culture of slackers...all he demands is 4-6 seconds.  Old Jim demands players go flat out (for the water bottles) for 30-60 seconds every time!!!

Remember the sideline markers he trashed and the chain pole(s) he grabbed and threw onto the field.  lol Loved it.

To your point, the refs would need to have their own coin flip...loser has to try to toss Woody.

You tell them "Listen, I understand loving your dog and living in the country expecting some freedom.  But here's the thing.  I've got 2 kids I love more than you'll ever love those dogs and one has autism.  I'm seriously scared those things will be in my yard and he'll do something that sets the dog off.  So you HAVE to control it.  I'm not looking to make enemies, but if the dogs keep coming in my yard I'll call the Dog warden.  If that doesn't solve the problem, I'll shoot 'em.  I don't like it...but it's just that simple.  I'm protecting my kids...especially the autistic one.  I hope you understand...either way, there it is."

Screw the new helmets and no kickoffs.  If we're going that way, let's just do it right.

On the bright side, holding penalties will disappear over night.  On the downside, the passing game might suffer a setback.

Comment 18 Jul 2016

It would be a good way to pick a coach....if recruiting and scheduling did not count and the premise was not flawed by two facts:

- you cannot overachieve and expectation of perfection...only underachieve.  (Much easier to overachieve an expectation of 8-4 than 12-0.)

- there is no such thing as two groups of players with exactly the same potential, therefore comparisons of that nature are just mental masturbation.

Given the entire list and absolute free choice (University says it will pay a billion dollars if needed to get their guy), how many sane folks are fighting over any of the top 10 names on that list while Meyer, Saban, etc. are still available?  Just a guess, but I'd say not many if money was no object.
