Well congrats to Auburn ! However, Jay, Auburn fans in Pasadena ?
In the big city of L. A. ? ? can you imagine ? Imagine the posibilities ? here are some things Auburn fans will be asking the fine citizens of Los Angeles and Pasedena
"Hey, where did they film Dukes of Hazard ? "
"Why are there no Waffle Houses here ? "
"Do they serve chinese food at that famous Chinese Theatre ? "
"I just shouted War Eagle at that 6-ft blonde model and she looked at me funny "
"I just told that guy on the corner, No we are NOT the Beverly Hillbillies "
" I am NOT going to the Playboy Mansion if i can't wear my Bo Jackson jersey"
" I wonder if I should have brought my Corn Flakes with me ? they might not have them in California"
" This really is different than Hollywood, ALABAMA "
" I wonder if they hate Nick Saban in California ? "
As good as this recruiting class is, the Vols still don't have a Quarterback. You can only go so far without a good quarterback
Jay- Enjoyed your "re-start" radio show yesterday !
My question, with all the money coming into the SEC, and this year looks like it is playing out. The new "holy grail" is the 4 team playoff, with so many SEC teams being able to compete with all the money they will have, is their a risk that it will be so hard and maybe even rare for undefeated and even one-loss SEC teams that some years they could get shutout of the 4 team deal ? And sure like you guys have said, they will more than likely go to 8 teams, but for the next 4 years stuck at 4 teams and a lot of good SEC coaches could get fired from fan bases not happy with a 9-3 coach that gets shutout of the 4-team playoff
Early commitments, catchy slogans and TV commercials building mailboxes, does NOT make a good coach !
Jay with Thanksgiving on us, How about sports Turkey of The Year ? nominations : A-Rod, Lance Armstrong. Aaron Hernandez, The Marion County Football coaches, The referee at the UTC-GaSothern game, Richie Incognito, for Vol Fans the always hated Fulmer-Hamilton-Kiffen-Dooley, Coach Carl Pelini . . . the biggest Sports Turkey those *&%#@? Boston Marathon Bombers, may they rot in HE-double hockey sticks
By the way Stoops, Butchy and Bielema are a combined 1-20 in SEC play . . . Just goes to show that there is more to coaching than catchy "slogans" and early commitments . .
Marcus Dupree, in fact is on a 30 for 30 ESPN show called "The Best that Never Was" In looking at the footage he was everybit in the Bo and Herschel category
Marcus Dupree has to be on Mt. Rushmore of injured "best that never were" and despite jokes of being drafted before MJ , Sam Bowie was very talented
You really have to wonder if the Vol players REALLY wanted to have 15 more practices ? Just so Johhny Vol Fan can buy a "We won the Liberty Bowl" sweatshirt ? . . . .when you have a terrible season like this sometimes you are ready to end it
Kudos to you Jay, for calling out the look of unprepared by Butchy. Finally a writer is not blaming the Vols loss on Fulmer, Hamilton, Kiffen, Dooley . . . The Vols went downhill as the season progressed . . Also funny how Vol fans seem to give Dobbs a pass that they didnt give to Worley. . .53 yards passing and 2 INTs, not to mention the guy cant throw a spiral and NOT a special runner. . . . It looks like coaching is more than Slogans, and early commitments
