    News Article: SEC coaches ranked

    The quality of the coaching in the SEC has plummeted since Coach Saban has arrived. Spurrier (8), Meyer (3), Richt (5), Fulmer(5), Brooks, Pinkl(2), Nutt(2), Petrino, even Miles(3), all gone. 4 won NCs, 7 made multiple SECC game appearances for a total of 28; of the other 2, Brooks did a...

    The Aaron Rodgers Saga

    This is the real issue. IMO, both Wilson’s and Rogers’ whining has been in view of the accolades that have come Brady’s way with the SB success at TB. They are both physically superior but mentally and attitudinally far behind. Brady is in another league from all others. Starr, who won 5 NFL...

    Who is the better QB - Eli Manning or Aaron Rodgers?

    Pretty simple answer - Tom Brady is the best. Bill Belichick was 5-13, including 0-2 in 2001, at NE before Brady began starting in game 3 of CBB's 2nd year, averaging 10 pts per game in the first 2 losses of 2001 (I know, small sample size) - 25 per game thereafter. Brady took them to an 11-3...

    2021 coaching carousel

    2017 Saban was in an impossible situation: Tua was the budding star that many had thought he might be and all of the coaches and players saw it, including Jalen, who was free with his praise of him; OTOH, Jalen was the reigning SEC POY, his attitude and work ethic endeared him to CNS and most...

    Henry To’o To’o transfers to Alabama

    It was tongue-in-cheek. If they cared - they would applaud their promotion to the big time. You know, from small time UT to big league Bama. If you don't get it this time, I will try at least one more time, maybe two, then I will turn it over to better communicators :).

    Henry To’o To’o transfers to Alabama

    If UT fans really cared about their players they would be happy for them when they received a promotion to the Big Leagues.

    Baseball What ifs.

    I didn't imply McGwire (I was a fan and knew he actually hit 49) could not hit HRs without steroids but that he could not hit as many, which if you examine the facts was a true assessment. In the 5 seasons before he regularly took steroids (by his own admission he started in 89 and began taking...

    Baseball What ifs.

    He was a HOF first ballot lock. In the prime years of his career Bonds was easily the best overall player in the game. Offense and defense and base-running. His only shortcoming was a weak, though accurate arm. It was a pity that McGwire's power exploits, greatly aided by steroids, IMO, provoked...

    Jaden Shackelford testing the NBA waters

    I agree with what you are saying about Primo but think it will be next year. ESPN's opinion is an outlier. I know that the NBA often drafts based primarily on potential but IMO, Primo has not shown enough to be taken in the first round this year and every mock draft I've seen concurs, even...

    Josh Primo also testing NBA waters

    IMO, it would beyond shocking if he were a first round pick.

    Jaden Shackelford testing the NBA waters

    Shack is a wonderful college player but IMO, he simply does not and will not have an NBA profile. IMO, Primo is a nice college player with potential for much more, but will be at best borderline NBA draft ready after next year. Qunnerly seems to be the only one remaining from this year’s team...

    From ESPN, a second pro day for Mac...

    Mac will likely be taken by SF at #3. Shanahan supposedly loves him and he has the final word for SF. He seems like a perfect fit. IMO, mobility is overrated. Mac, like Brady is a smart, agile pocket operator. More importantly, he’s not smart but exceptionally smart which enables him to get rid...

    Link: It's hard to argue that the CFP has been better than the BCS

    Who said anything about "any team can win" ? My point was that the best team often does not win - that's quite a difference. IMO, in most cases guessing who is the "best" team ultimately becomes a subjective matter regarding men's basketball. There are not many Cinderellas but there are more...

    From ESPN, a second pro day for Mac...

    Well really he can hope for a good bit more such as a good fit and a good organization. That is why I hope SF drafts Mac. It's a well-built team now, and the offense is a good fit for Mac, though there are other offenses that IMO would be a better fit, such as NE. If he goes to some other...

    Spring Practice Thread

    Both Metchie and Bolden DO drop passes, especially Bolden at a higher rate. Bolden also has been fumble-prone at this point but his sample size has been small, so maybe he has cleaned that up. I don’t think most Bama fans think the WR’s will be bad, just not as exceptional as the past 13 years...

    Link: It's hard to argue that the CFP has been better than the BCS

    It is decided on the field. The Committee has done a terrific job of selecting the top 4 teams each year. If we started out with a 64 team field, it would not improve the chance of finding the best team. It would simply make greater the possibility of a fluke loss by a great team, though in...

    Link: It's hard to argue that the CFP has been better than the BCS

    IMO, the problem is more with integrity than blindness. Many care little for the truth. If it happens to fall in line with their agenda, it's fine, but they have other agendas to fill which for the mouthpieces is primarily what will enable them to continue or enhance their career. Also, their...

    Spring Practice Thread

    IMO, BY will only be a positive for Bama's O and team, the WR's explosiveness will likely be a problem to overcome and that will be only in relation to Bama's incredible run of WR's since 2008, with 2011 the only exception. There are no Jones, Cooper, Ridley, Jeudy, HR, DS, JW apparent in the...
