FE to the C —
McKenzie will be a starter from Day 1 in Knxoville, and then in three years will be a starter Day 1 in the NFL.
UT going undefeated and scoreless has to be there.
Love the AP shoutout too.. He spanked it. Too soon?
Rushmore of coaches wives?
Eric Taylor on Friday Night Lights. Mrs Kiffin if you please. Bielema has out-kicked his coverage more than anyone we know other than the TFP sports editor. USC hoops coach Andy Enfeld did very well too.
Great call on the Cam fallout.
Great stuff gang. All the way through.
The class will hold unless the wheels fall off. In truth, even a meaningless bowl — and they all are other than the Final 4 teams now — would be a step forward for Butch and Co.
Man, we get your anti-UT stance, but it's hard to figure your anti-Peyton passion.
Well-played sir. And yes, we had some difficulties find the Fox Sports 1 or whatever it is.
Well played on the Titans.
Was a little bit surprised by the ND-Signal score. Not the outcome as much as the one-sidedness of it.
We can see what you're saying. You also make an interesting point in another direction — the interweb would have melted if TW had called Watson out in front of the world.
That's why we're here.
We have zero sympathy for Pete, either. In fact, we'd let the cheaters in before the bettors, but that's us.
Yes, six weeks is a better measurement, but still. And since the 5-at-10 was published this a.m. Mike Smith has given his D.C. the dreaded vote of confidence. Someone get Brian VanGorder's number stat.
The Bullies are laying 2.5-3 to Texas A&M.
We have contained for years that Shoeless Joe should be in because his lifetime is done. We feel the same about Rose, especially since a big chunk of his desire to get in is the financial windfall of putting HoF on his autographs.
The LSU-Auburn game will be a slugfest. We also see the Vols covering the number.
No, the patterns in the stands likely won't influence the action on the field.
Could look pretty awesome to recruits in attendance though. And if it gets the fan base invested, involved and excited, then that's cool.
Can see that — and dude was money in the presser. Mainly talking about the on-the-field chewings he handed out.
Hey, we agree that there are times they need to happen, and Hall of Fame QBs are qualified to do it.
Just pointing out the juxtaposition of the treatment of Brady-Manning in the eyes of many.
Concur. With the biggest SoCon test in the rear view, the Mocs should be a playoff team.
Just doing BID-ness. Appreciate the give and take as always.
Excellent questions. We'll answer the first. The second feels mailbagish.
The general answer to the first question is there is no answer and there is no way to anticipate what will happen the first time through. There could be a real debacle coming — what if the SEC has an unbeaten champ in Alabama and say a once-beaten Auburn, who lost by 3 at Tuscaloosa and is in No. 4 America that didn't win its division; the Pac 12 has an unbeaten Oregon, an unbeaten FSU; Notre Dame with one loss; BYU unbeaten; Oklahoma and Baylor play a double overtime thriller and someone wins 56-55.
No guidelines. No rules. Just gut feel for Andrew Luck's dad and Jerry Rice's first cousin Condolezza.
Buckle up buttercup. This is going to make us long for the BCS.
Concur about the O-Line, but we'd also have to ask what happens after the half when the Mocs play calling goes so conservative that Sarah Palin thinks it's too close to the vest.
And we loved Mickelson's reponse — and agreed with it. We try to ask honest questions and hope to get honest answers. As much as any uber-star in sports, Mickelson answers them with as much thought and honesty.
Nice golf travel plans.
Question for the group:
Would Jomo be more pleased with...
a) UTC winning the SoCon and hosting a playoff game;
b) UT getting bowl eligible with Butch Jones leaving for Michigan around Thanksgiving.
Nice win for the Tornado on Friday. Blue looks legit. Who they got this week?
Chuck Connors... Now we're talking.
Bill Goldberg, but wrestling is a whole other can of steroids.
Loved the George Foreman Grill.
Lou Gehrig is excellent. What did he die from again?
Do you think Alex Karras is known more as Mongo and Webster's dad than as a former NFLer?
And Uecker. Dude, Uecker.
The political guys are everywhere. Who knew? But of the guys we mentioned who played in the pros, who was more famous as a senator (love the suit) than they were as an athlete?
And how crazy is this? We are a generation away from people knowing Jordan as the shoe guy.
Meeting time — when is it not meeting time — we'll return shortly.
From friend of the show Chas9 (who is having trouble signing in — the TFP IT department would ask if you have rebooted) —
Not able to sign in, so I'll try email.
Personification and semblence? Wowser. Even Coach K don't know them words.
You mentioned Kentucky and bowl game in the same sentence. How does that square with ranking UK so low in your weekly SEC power poll?
Trap game, my eye! Go with the 40 for the Rebellious Black Bears.
Sad, almost unbelievable, that King Rex Chapman resorted to shoplifting. You'd think the Commonwealth would take better care of its emeritus heroes. But seems like more than its share of former roundball greats have been caught in venal acts. Richie Farmer, Dirk Minniefield…
And Eric Bledsoe was a strong wingman.
