Hey Bispy4, too bad next year GSU. . .er, Waffle House U will be getting hammered in basketball in the SunBelt, traveling from Louisiana to Texas to Arkansas. But hey at least you will be playing football in the "witness protection" program of the FBS and can get a bowl game. . . oh sorry, last year 3 SunBelt teams qualified for a bowl and didnt get invited. . . well good luck with that move
Mocs vs. Georgia Southern aka "Waffle House U" will be a tough matchup. Jelani Hewitt, SoCon leading scorer and Tre Bussey have combined to make 125 3pointers. . . . .but Jay, your right even the most optimistic Moc fan would never have predicted the Mocs would be 10-2 at this point, WOW what a great job Will Wade has done !
Jay- I actually feel sorry for the Conz, He is now probably going to win enough games, with the easy schedule and how week the SEC is to make the NCAA tourney. The problem is the fair-weather UTK fans who get mad when they lose a game. Those fans who think that the solution is to simply "dial up" Bruce Pearl. . .THAT SHIP HAS SAILED AND CANT COME BACK, no matter how many names you get on a petition. If Conz makes the NCAA tourney, at that point you almost have to give him a contract extension even though that wont sit well with the UTK fair weather fans, as evidence by the empty seats last night. . .WOW what a mess
Jay- Surely ( And dont call me Shirley ) Conz and UTK can beat Georgia ! Heck DAVIDSON beat Georgia by double-digits, for crying out loud !
Can you imagine how many trailer park Bammers are going to go bankrupt buying a Benz from Saban ?
Jay- do you think Conz Martin survives at UTK ? and if he does not, UTK is consistently in the top 10 national in attendence, loyal fan base, all the game and practice facilities necessary, etc. . .if they were smart the would take the "dump truck of cash" philosphy and go to Gregg Marshall or Shaka Smart and keep adding cash til one of them says yes. . .no need for UTK to go the mid-major unproven route of Martin, Dooley, Jones, etc. they should hire a proven big-time guy and not settle for a coach unless he has been to the Final Four. . . .As Fletch says " Its all ball-bearings these days "
to me here are the GREATEST accomplishments of Derek Jeter's carrer:
Minka Kelley, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson,Venessa Minnillo, Vida Guerra and Gabriella Union . . . .that is a lot of high quality Trim to go through in a baseball career, no wonder he is tired
I know this was yesterday's topic, but . . . Why is it ok to be critical of Tim Tebow throwing his religion in your face, have Letterman make fun of Tebow or have a sportswriter say funny comments like " God must have left at halftime", etc. with really no repurcussions whatsoever. And what if a sportswriter made any kind of comment about Michael Sam that was meant to be funny, or that writer just disagreed. That sportswriter's career would be over, forever. And also Tebow or any athlete declaring that he is saving sex for marriage didnt get a "courageous" tweet from the President. . . . .i dont expect you to comment on this Jay, because it could hurt you or your career . . .and that, in and of itself is wrong. . . . .but as they said on Seinfeld "not that there is anything wrong with it" . . .thats my thoughts on the Michael Sam issue
Wow, Vanderbilt now "owns the state" in basketball. . . .they do seem to be a killer for UTK, they basically killed Derek Dooley and cost him his job, they killed UTK in football in 2013 and cost Butchy a bowl game . .now they may have killed Counzo Martin and cost him his job. . . . .AND if you went to Vegas, today Vandy would be an early favorite vs UTK in their home football game this fall. . . If that happens what would that kill ?
Also Rivals.com crash on signing day is like CNN going off the air on Presidential election night, bet some IT guy at rivals is not having fun today, if still employed
Yes, it is a tough deal for Manning. Unfortunately NFL QBs are judged how they do in big games. Peyton has had more "bad-big games" than "good-big games", At this point he is more Dan Marino and Dan Fouts, than he is Tom Brady or Joe Montana. . . . .and a case could be made that Manning is just Dan Marino with better PR and endorsements. . . . today's NFL rules allow QB's to put up video game numbers and Manning has been a benificiary of that. So he is a great QB, but clearly NOT the "best ever"
It may not be fair but NFL Quarterbacks are judged on how they do in big games. it is just a fact that Peyton Manning has had more "Bad big-games" that "good big-games", this will prevent him from being ranked ahead of Tom Brady and Joe Montana. I know it's a team game, but that is just the why NFL QB's are compared
