The Clay Travis piece is excellent, great line that cannot be used here, but will be used. Back when all this started I commented that I thought Al Golden would be the next coach. He has to be a better option than "the hat part deux". It looks like another lost year of recruiting on Rocky Top.
Best name -- Macon Whoopee ECHL, Milwaukee Brewers (beer is always good
Worse name -- Chicago Cubs, off spring of the football team?
Three to change -- KC Royals to the Serfs, nothing royal about them. Indiana Pacers, get the race reference, just pace yourself? Anaheim Ducks -- ducks take to ice how exactly? I know the Disney ties but that was a while ago.
I think Title IX was best exemplified by Brandi Chastain's winning PK in the women's world cup. Title IX is why the US women dominate so many team sports. I also think this was the first time a women's team had such a big, undivided stage. U-S-A U-S-A.
Romeo did a great job in a bad situation. You can question his X's & O's ability, but you cannot question his heart and how much he cares about his players. Some coaches look at players as interchangable parts, some like sons. Also, did you catch the post game speech by Brady Quinn? -- awesome, dude nailed it.
The one sports item I would overpay for would be Joe Namath's Super Bowl III jersey. BTW - are Rocky movies and Super Bowls the only reason americans know any roman numerals at all?
Southern Miss fired Ellllllllllllis (12 L's see what we did there)Johnson after one season. They had to pay him 2.8 million to never win a game - we heard he lost the spring game also. Somehow Dooley seems like a bargain -- not.
A nominee for Mt. Rushmore -- Ted Danson, Sam Malone on Cheers and now as D.B. Russell on CSI. Never thought much of him as an actor until the CSI part, but do now. Spy hit the other ones I was thinking of especially Harry Morgan. Can Newhart be considered since the whole inn keeper gig was a dream?
I probably should not have dissed D2AA. Sorry.
I meant it more of a "I would like to see "U of Wherever" play in the "blank" conference. For instance I would like to see Boise St in the Pac 12, Pitt in the Big 10, Florida St in the SEC, Kentucky in the ACC, UTK in the Sunbelt or Division 2AA in the TSSAA something comparable to the talent level.
Here's an idea for a top 5 list - You're king for the day, other than putting the letter letter I in the word team to shut up high school coaches across America, you can move five teams from their current conferences to another. You cannot move the entire SEC west out.
What's the one word you'd use to describe Dooley's time with UT:
True or false: UT will be better than the 6-6 in 2013.
6-6 would be about right, 4 OOC, Kentucky, and one other
In a paragraph ,what's the lasting image of the last three years of UT football: The complete clusters at the end of the LSU and Music City Bowl games. Not all his fault but it kind of is.
Fill in the blank: UT's next football coach will be _. Al Golden, especially since Miami did not fully disclose all the issues he was walking into. Gruden is not coming and UT-K is not a good enough job to get someone like Strong or Jimbo to pack up and move.
