10 Ring, thanks of the Mississppi State rundown. I'm full agreement. If the Bulldogs want be in the coversation in the end, they best do some yelling now.
How many TDs on how many total touches does Sky-EE Wilson score at Grundy Friday night?
Using the "Wise Old Owl" method, one, two, three, four...crack. This is harder than it looks, since I don't have a Tootsie Pop. I'll be conservative and say Sky-EE comes home with four.
Got to give Signal the nod, 45-13.
10 Ring, McFadden??? Couldn't sell him for a 3rd. McKenzie gave Darren an incentive filled low dollar contract. He's earning it. The Arkansas product ran for 37 on Sunday. I doubt this effort is anticipated in performance parameters the runner signed off on.
Derek Carr is a kid. No one, including himself, expected him to start behind veteran Matt Schaub. Now, Carr's learning the game on the field. He ain't great, but he's not coyote ugly either. I assume you saw James Jones catch that 25 yarder from Carr. Jones fumbled it twice recovered once, the second time near pay dirt.
This latest verson of Raider hiliarity somehow makes me want to buy Tom Landray's hat and call plays with the aid of my electric football game.
The Tennessee Vols did show some sand Saturday. Worley led the way there. Yes, Worley made a couple bad decisions with the ball, but he was chased non-stop and more horizontal than vertical.
Many of Worley's travails began up from with right side where Robertson and Thomas, a swinging cattle gate with an 9"x15" Orange on Black "Help wanted" sign.
Spiker had a fine performance, but the good teams will run right at his 220 pound frame at Linebacker. Spiker reminds of the mysterious Renaldo Striker, a 6' 3" 240lb., 4.6 former Marine with a black belt, who was being recruited by Tennessee. Quite a few bought it. This was in the early to mid 1990s when most were yet to be plugged in. One of the better running gags Doctor B ever laid down.
All in all this ain't Kentucky basketball. Tenn. ain't going to win it all fresheman.
Back to the offensive line, yes Striker and the Oklahoma D line ware a tough assignment, however, with offensive lineman size ain't everything...you got to get your feet out the chewing gum, be athletic and front Striker, lay hands upon the man. Instead they only chipped him, leaving it up to Marvin Lane to try and match up.
On a lighter note, 10 Ring, you’ll be happy to know Sky-EE’s
his first resume and film up to the combines.
This has probably been said before...Cameras are darn near everywhere these. One would think the prospect of public exposure to have a chilling effect on bad behavior.
The new Justin Worley?? Can this young man handle the speed at which the Sooners play defense? Will he able to decipher then defeat the multiple coverages and schemes of a well coached defense? Can Worley put the Vols on his back when the run game is stuffed by less than eight men in the box? Worley might catch a busted coverage now and again, and hit North in stride, but such opportunities will be rare: execution rarer still.
While Arnie was the complete package, IMG marketing was spot on,.
Muhammad Ali, this superstar was the best fighter, and his own best promoter. The back and forth with ABC's Cosell classic. 10 Ring, I bet you'd love to have been in on that. Personally, I'll never know for sure if the genesis of his change in religion was based upon avoiding the draft. Yes, I know what the Supreme Court ruled. 1 point deduction.
Babe Ruth, every boy wanted to be him. Every man wanted to be like him.
Bobby Jones, The Aamateur. Any guy with a 12 handicap understands the meaning. I mean how many golfers ever got a ticker tape parade and gave golfing lessons to actors and actresses on film. Jones was also an international star. Admittedly, NYC threw a lot more ticker tape back then. His name will live forever from the tallest pines to the most perfect spray of azaleas.
Tiger has fallen far. Ironically, it all had to do with how he treated his Wife.
10 Ring, you got the Vols pegged. Can't lay bricks without sand, and in Norman "The Volunteer Army" is high on youth but low gun powder. If there's anything going on with Derek Mason's nose, it's being rubbed in it.

Read one of your tweets to the effect you were glad they sped up the clock at Signal. 10 Ring, we saw you on the sideline working hard running with the chains. Grandpa and I paid to get in. We could leave anytime and that time was half-time.
Your dead on with Sk-eY Wilson. Just a sophmore finds the right lane with power and speed. His biggest improvement from game one is holding on to the rock. I like #4 Nathan Johnson, seems like whenever Price sends the kid in there's a jail break. The defense so far is suffocating, but needs to improve to brave the Nortre Dames, Bradely Centrals and Greenvilles on the schedule.
On Ray Price, didn't you see where a panel of WBC judges said she slipped? What's Roger gonna do now? Pray Price goes to jail letting the Commish off easy.

10 Ring, it's "Ceiling Zero" for Derek Mason. Staring Jimmy Cagney, Pat O'Brian. Directed by Howard Hawks.
10 Ring, I was just a frosh in '81, so I remeber well being gutted by USC then Georgia the first two weeks on the road. Vols put a 42 noting pasting on Colorado State. Vol fans were placated for the moment. I'm gratified with Sunday's effort, but I fear this W portends nothing about the Vols place in the SEC.
Of course, certainly and hell yeah, I would trade all my tortured memories of the last decade or so for a win against Florida.
Greatest Signal Callers ahead of Terry Bradshaw (in no particular order: John Unitas, Slinging Sammy Baugh, Dan Marimo Dan Fouts, Joe Namath, Elway, Montana, Tom Bradey, Otto Graham, Drew Brees, Brett Farve. Let's throw Roger Staubach for a gut reaction.
Derek Mason got some of what he deserved last night. More beat downs to follow. The Tennessee brain trust must be drying off some flop sweat now they are one win closer to six. What was with that "Anchor Down" on the back of the Jersey? "Going Down" seems the more accurate descriptive. How about "Chico's Bail Bonds" for next week?
