    Question: Re: Remember when GameDay was fun to watch?

    How do these people get these jobs? They've ruined Mike and Mike as Golic and Wingo is unwatchable...add to that what they've done with Gameday and College Football Final -- looks to me like ESPN...

    Re: Will Nick Saban reign in Tua?

    I think you nailed it...just remember that Tua was the "youngest" QB we have played for any length of time...and also has the most ability. I rewatched some of the games from McCarron and GMac. ...

    An interesting sidenote -- I thought I saw that Tua's father is an unpaid QB "coach" in some form or fashion. Could be that CNS values his perspective...obviously...and influence upon Tua.

    I'm a Uverse subscriber and have been without NBC for about a month...had to watch The Open delayed on The Golf Channel. I wish there were some way to get these folks' attention...we're just pawns...

    Re: SEC Media Day

    That one statement explained so much...we thought we could cakewalk through the playoffs and even the coaches got caught up in their own agendas. Full loyalty is rare...even with high salaries and 2...

    I had an under 40 friend who is a big sports fan say to me: "I would rather do something than sit and watch someone else do something." That's a big sentiment for a lot of young adults...

    We're not them...and the games we have lost that were meaningful were because we scored quickly and gave the ball back to the other's chess and the moves are critical...
  19. Question: Re: Will Bama ever return to a physical running game?

    The advantage to being a running team is twofold:
    1. You wear out the opponent and they eventually give up.
    2. You play defense with offense -- keeping the ball and controlling the clock and...
