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
Tough weekend for Moc fans, but as Russ said "next year starts now". And next year could be very special. Mocs could be preseason ranked in top 10. Some VERY good players redshirted because of injuries. Key skill players are all back
Vols regressed during the season. Josh Dobbs passed for 53 yards with 2 interceptions, if he is the "future" of the Vols it is bleak. Is Butch Jones just Derek Dooley with better "slogans" ?
