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.
That's how we view it. You have a fair point that the Yankees spared no coin to spoil the fans, but the pinnacle of the Yankees run under Torre was with O'Neil and Tino and some affordable stars around the big stars. And there's some logic to that.
And Cox had at least as many Hall of Famers (4) as Torre did and maybe more after the steroids flap. The only two dunks that spent time with the Yanks are Rivera and Jeter since A-Rod, Clemens and Pettitte were under the PED cloud.
Cox is a Hall of Famer, but with the collection of pitching he had, he underachieved.
As a side note, if you were ranking those guys as all-around dudes, Torre is light years ahead of Cox with LaRussa even further behind that.
Agree with the policy in the stance of it makes good business. And mightily agree that he should have been dressed better than a T-shirt. C'mon man, you're the face of a franchise. Be better than that.
Excellent analysis about the Hawks breakdown. And the Hawks owner had tried to sell before, he actually may have watched the Sterling mess unfold and the light bulb went off.
Can't see putting Cox over Torre. Or even over LaRussa for that matter. The first two are dunks as is Belichick.
Has Cal started his 40-0 talk yet? Could happen.
Wow. We tend to agree on a bunch, but we could not be at opposite ends of the spectrum on FNL the TV show. Wow.
It likely would make our Rushmore of all-time TV dramas. Seriously.
What's that? Is that Todd962's intro music?
Holy smokes. It is.
Concur. And as we wrote in today's TFP, drawing blood is a clear step across the line.
As for the cycling mix up, it was either an Average Joe mishap or as Emilio told us in Breakfast Club, they are wearing the required uniform. Tight.
Gang — great stuff today. Sorry for the delay been at the dentist, or as Paschall said, Anti-Dentite.
Stewwie, we could see a game show related one:
Come on down. Is that your final answer? Survery says....
We also could have an entire Seinfeld Rushmore of catch phrases, too.
Great Diff'rent Strokes call. Well played.
And yes, AD is going to be the third best player in the league. Wonder if Chris Paul looks at that nucleus and thinks, "Hmmmmmm..."
Jomo out of the gate quickly.
Thanks for including Goodell. Otherwise, well, you know.
Great stuff and all of this will come up on Press Row in a matter of minutes.
That said, three quick thoughts:
1) GD and Dawg747, we thought of you after that Bobo debacle.
2) Spy, we thought of the position you were in with your two favorite teams going toe-to-toe knowing that an Eagles win would have a) made a great statement for your favorite program and b) cost the job for Paul Johnson, one of your favorite people around. Talk about a rock and a hard place and never the twain shall meet.
3) Jomo, we did not place the blame of Saturday on Dooley. Rather we said Dooley's haste in burning the Worley's redshirt would be painful next year for a UT team that has a lot of pieces in a lot of the right places.
More to come (and yes, JMC, got the mail and thanks again).
Listen up to Press Row. It's worth your while.
