I love winter golf, but I’m also not in Ohio.   Living near so many good courses in OC makes winter golf about the only time I go...it’s cheap and there’s hardly anyone out there, even on the nice days.

Every mobile/running qb isn’t the same.  Can Jackson keep it up and stay healthy?  Past history says no, but it’s not a guarantee either way.  He appears to be more durable than rg3 ever was, who by the way may have had the worst awareness of any mobile qb.  The guy literally couldn’t avoid hits vs someone like russel Wilson or kyler who are slippery as hell.  Jackson is a difference maker back there.  He’s too fast to not spy him, but he’s outrunning his spy’s.  

I’ve been saying to anyone who will listen that I don’t see it in Tua either.  I think he compares best to Alex Smith.  Accurate as hell, but not what I would consider a franchise qb.  He’s more than serviceable and could have a long career in a QB desparate league if he stays healthy. But he’s not someone who’s going to be in that upper echelon.

This is correct...and I don't know if UGA is down for enough to be honest.  To me it's Ohio State/Clemson clearly above everyone else including LSU. 

Comment 19 Nov 2019

Interesting point.  I take this whole idea of the coach getting or not getting the rivalry like this.  They know it’s a big game...the most important game. You’ve got 2 choices.  Do you acknowledge it outwardly and prep all year or do you act like it’s just another game?  Acting like it’s another game may be fine every day except Gameday, because now you’re up against it and nerves set in.  That’s the concern with treating it that way, and to your point, why I think cooper and his teams seized up.  Tressel on the other hand put it out there in his first appearance as coach.  Day acknowledged it in his very first sentence as coach.  Harbaugh maintains it’s just another game. I’ve been questioning that for the last couple years, and comparing him to cooper bc of it.

Oh I’m still gonna be nervous as hell the minute the PSU game hits 00:00.  

Comment 19 Nov 2019

Tressel righted the ship. Urban took it a step further by being more public about the disdain, by making media and guests change out of blue shirts if they were going to be at practice, and then even now on the tv.  Day has been made very aware the importance of the Game.  It was the first thing he said when he was introduced.  Have to beat that team up. And then win the rest of the games.  No concern on my part about how he’ll approach The Game.  Remember...Urban is still around too...if there was ever a week or weeks to lean on him for advice, it’s these two.  

Comment 19 Nov 2019

Cowherd had an interesting take on this.  That essentially, it will/could help Tua in the long run because the 2nd contract is where the real difference is in rookie contracts.  If he drops instead of going to a shit show like the dolphins, bengals, skins, etc., and ups with a team like the colts or someone like that, who will be in the 11-25 pick range, his chance for success goes up exponentially.  

Comment 18 Nov 2019

Said that to someone during that LSU/Bama game. We all know how much an assistant can affect a team. If you don't hit those hires, you are going to feel the effects.  When Urbans teams won, you can point to the assistants as to why.  When they lost...same thing.  Saban has somehow been immune to it over the last 10yrs, or just incredibly lucky in his selections.  I do think it's caught up to him over the last couple of years...and yet they've still only lost once this year and once last year...unbelievable.

As a Lions fan, he's going to have plenty of time to throw this coming Sunday.

Comment 18 Nov 2019

There were comments out there at halftime of the LSU game he should be fired.  Dude has more NCs than home losses at Bama (read that too, not sure if it's true or not but it's got to be close).  

To me...he's gonna leave soon.  First time I can remember he looks this tired.  Maybe just a culmination of the Tua injury before the LSU game, but I think he's gone soon.  Then get the popcorn ready.

Comment 18 Nov 2019

Many feel Mack was the cause for the entitled feeling of his last few teams, and what Charlie Strong struggled with in his tenure there.  They’d accept 20 commitments on junior day, and then most of those kids stopped trying to improve because they had gotten what most kids in Texas want, a commitable offer from the longhorns.  

Comment 18 Nov 2019

Is the entire Fox show inside the Shoe or just the last hour (aren't they doing 2 hours again like Wisky?)?  

Comment 18 Nov 2019

 We should be at full strength on both sides of the ball, including the O-line and D-line.

It's crazy to think that because this team has been so good, they've been able to rest guys mid-season because they just haven't needed them, knowing they had what is hopefully a 5 game stretch that will undoubtedly be the toughest in the nation.  Oh...and that's not even including CYs month off.  If he had any nagging injuries, you know he's fresh.  Can't wait.  

Comment 18 Nov 2019

The team has had these 2 games circled for months.  Knowing they had to get here healthy and undefeated to have a shot at their ultimate goals.  I still feel like there are things on both sides of the ball that we haven't even seen yet because they haven't had to show it.  Hamler or no Hamler, it's not going to matter.  Hafley/Mattison have the scheme to take him away.  And you're telling me they are suspect against the pass?  In the words of Brent Musberger during Ted Ginns PR TD..."This one's over, this race."
