Not just this year Russ always gets a pass after losing winnable games. In his post game
comments and on press row this week the 'we just have to win a game'
and 'we just have to play and coach better' statements come across as a guy in over his head.
Staggering talent with incompetent coaching and stale game plans. A crappy menu that's
for the birds.
5-If you really have Detroit #3 on your power list I'd love to be your bookie this year.
Mailbag: At what point do you start to gather your vulchers over Russ Huesman.
What you always said about C. Martin in Knoxville was his team grossly underachieved.
He couldn't recruit and you didn't like his in-game decisions and adjustments.
I'm not certain if you signed any patition but you certainly were out front beating the drum for his ouster.
In year 6 Russ is the poster child for this profile.
5- So 9 former FBS athletes now play for UTC's
next opponent? Not good, 0-2 looks likely.
Lake Johnson is a big get, dude could have gone anywhere
great for the home team!
5- Ryder Cup: Captain Tom was his at his melodramatic best for the cheesy
selection show. His picks were worse. Put a max limit at 1 the times a player can be selected
to the roster, just take whoever the next 3 are. They earned it (sorta). Buddy system sux.
If Tiger no longer intimidates anyone, this US team really scares no one.
Apparently Wes Welker takes hits in the offseason too..
That may be the answer:
Caught with weed/PED - lose 3rd rounder
Caught in DUI - lose 2nd rounder
Beat up your girl- lose first rounder
Succumb to gayness- only team you can ever sign with-Cowboys.
5- NFC West preview: The last 8 SB winners either didn't make the playoffs or lost in the first round.
Seattle will follow this trend. Too hard to repeat in sports. Motivation, lack of focus, injuries all play a huge part.
Not to mention the 'ohsoclose' factor that is the NFL. In their case a tipped pass gets Intercepted.Everything has to go right.
They should get 9-10 wins but SF should as well. St L is way overrated (7-9) Cards (6-10).
Last point: Seattle became a tough place to play when the team became good. They had 10plus wins 3 times in the last 8 seasons 2 of which were 2012 and 2013. Home field matters a great deal more in college not so much in the pros. We've seen 3 wild card SB winners in the last 8 years win 3 road games to do it.
Mailbag: Is there something in the CBA that prevented Goodell from taking a first round pick or two
from the Colts? That would seem more equitable and send a much stronger msg.
MT-Sure, right there with Earl Campbell and Terrell Davis.
Hard to leave off Payton too.
5-Mailbag: How many seasons go by before Malzahn is on an NFL sideline?
Bradshaw is 2 or 3 as far as big game winners, overall top 5 for sure.
Rushmore: Brown Dickerson OJ Sanders
5- Is this a big 'money' game for UTC? If so how does is equate to the Tenn or Ala
payouts? Is it really worth whatever the payout after travel and lodging to get bbq'd
on the road?
One role- Phoebe Cates. (Only one needed)
5- UTC is going to have their hands full Thursday. We'll see how good their defensive front
is. CMU returns a 1,500 yd runner and added a transfer runner from Michigan plus a off. line that returns
all starters. Not sure who Jacob is throwing to but he doesn't throw much anyway (1,700 yds).
Prediction: GA v AU in SEC championship. Bama has at least 2 losses. Kiffin ends up in Dallas
