Jay- you were missed at our tailgate !. . . . come to the Playoff tailgate ( I know run Jim Mora audio ). . . .Great crowd at football and b-ball games this weekend in Moc Land. . . .the Bama-Auburn game could be epic. . . .
For Butchy at UTK, thats about $5 million, so looks like its going to a $ 1 million a win . . . .They should have just found a coach for $ 12 million and got 12 wins . . .But seriously the college athletic business is a very flawed model from a business standpoint. $125 million budgets that only bring, at best a few million to the bottom line, and most cases a loss, would be a stock that you would want to short
Like in the line in "Jerry MaGuire" . .Saban's "word is like Oak" . . " I will not leave LSU for the NFL". . ." I will not be the Coach at Alabama, Im staying in Miami". . . . "i will NOT go to Texas" . . . hmmmm
So glad the Braves made an offer to McCann. To me he is the heart and soul of that team. Not to mention a very good hitting catcher that would be hard to replace
Jay- interesting that of the Mocs 5 TD vs. Appy 3 were by freshman and 1 by a sophmore . . .we constantly hear the media say lets give this team or that team a pass because they are young, yet so many college teams are winning WITH freshman . . .
that brings us to UTK, Dobbs looked decent, but he doesnt seem to have that "IT" factor that some freshman at other schools seem to have. . .if He is the future the "bricks" look a little shaky
Moc fans will be at the Wofford game in force, dont know if the CITY of Chattanooga comes, might more be a tale of rather CHATTANOOGA is a sports town or not, I know being a sports page you might want to ignore that but it is kind of a reflection on what the city is or isnt. .
Are the Falcons THE most disappointing NFL team this year or The Ravens or Giants ?
Moc fans will be there in full force. . . the question is, Is the CITY of Chattanooga really a town that supports sports or just NOT a sports town
As you know I really hope the Mocs can win Saturday. However, I disagree that the Mocs have an edge here. Appy is playing 70 players on Off, Def and special teams. With the injuries the Mocs are only playing 50 guys. The injuries to Keon, Hudson ( the most consistent WR and the punt returner ) and the injury a few weeks ago to Derrick Lott are almost too much to overcome against a team with the team speed that Appy has. You need to remember that the last 3 years have been very good recruiting years for Appy. Their change in coaches and their new QB and true fresham RB, are just now hitting their stride. I know jay, you are going to say this is Appy who lost 6 games alreadyy . . .blah,blah . . but the last 2 weeks Appy has put up 475 and 515 yards on offense. The reason they are 1-1 in those games is 5 turnovers lost in the game they lost. . . .bottom line, with this game being in Appy, the Mocs are the underdog. . . Its really not fair to say that the Mocs have better talent and should win this game and if they dont it is a sign they "cant get over the hump" . . . i just dont see the Mocs winning this game without Keon and Hudson . . . .I hope Im wrong, but you really have to look behind and ignore Appy's record.
for me the orginal Halloween movie was the best. And at that time Jamie Lee Curtis was so HOT !!!
It is a big game for the Mocs. Injuries are taking there toll, Tommy Hudson already ruled out for game. A big loss, most consistent receiver and punt returner. Not sure about Chaz Moore or Keon. without that group, Mocs are down to about 50 players who play on both sides and special teams. . .that could take its toll vs an Appy team that now has FBS number of scholarships. . .Appy's offense has played VERY well the last 2 games 473 yards 2 weeks ago, and 515 yards vs. Georgia Southern. although they lost 2 weeks ago, because of 5 turnovers. . Appy's offense is starting to hit their stride . .. This would be a very difficult win for the Mocs. . .dont let Appy's record fool you
Great letter Mr. Martin. Thanks for your thoughts and support. ALL us Moc fans need to help with donations and consistent attendence. Go Mocs
