Sagarian has the Mocs at something like 34.5. It could go higher or lower. Lower if we put our bench in early and VMI doesn't. We need to get our two backup QBs some significant playing time if possible.

JG, in reality Pete Rose is in the HOF in many ways. His records are acknowledged, he just can't be enshrined as an individual. He broke the rules that he knew sympathy for Pete.

A question for you wordsmiths. Pete Rose recieved a "lifetime" ban. Does that mean the ban is lifted upon his death or does "lifetime" mean forever? It has been intrepreted to be forever for Joe Jackson.

Phil went 2-1-0.

Agree about the conservative calling. We were predicting the next play at way too high of a rate for just being fans. If we knew what was coming, surely the other team did. I think they like the vast majority of coaching staffs at some point quit playing to win, but play not to lose the game.....

Why wasn't Uchiyama sent to Scotland to cover the Ryder Cup? He would have given us a perspective that was sadly lacking. Paul Azinger would have had Uchiyama on the coverage.

I am not buying the Phil Mickleson hateraid. He was asked a question, he gave a response that some golf analysts said was reasonable. If it was slamming Watson, it was also slamming the captain of the last two teams also, he was referencing our last win in 2008. If you haven't actually listened to it, do so. It was a calm thought out response, not a rant. Maybe he should have bit his tongue and wait a few weeks to say what he did, but it was hardly throwing Watson under the bus. Not forgetting, it was in direct response to a question. His options were A) answer what he tought, which he did B) lie and C) say nothing and tell the reporter "no comment" which also could be considered a slam at Watson.

The Mocs offensive line still has lots of improvement to make, but they showed Saturday that they have started in a positive direction. Was it the moving of Cory Levin to guard and insertion of Hunter Townsend at tackle? Bottom the UTC OLine goes, so goes the UTC offense.

If tonight's Yankee game is rained out Derek Jeter will not play his last game in NY. There is a solution if the Mets will help out. Trade him for $1 to Mets, let him play Saturday for them in NYC. Then trade him back so he can be on the Yankees on SUnday, and thus retire as a Yankee. THen the NYC faithful can all go see his last game on Saturday.

Buschleague....when a sack happens out in the open and at least several yards deep, it is sorta like a dunk in basketball. It gets the crowd roaring and pumps the andrenlin in the defense.

Thus, the effect of a sack can be more than just a tackle for a few yards lost.

The key in the Samford games remains what it will be all season. How will the UTC offensive line perform? If the UTC OL does not do their job, the UTC defense will be on the field all day and they will get beat eventually. UTC needs at least 21 points from their offense. They can't beat a good team like Samford without getting points from the offense. The D can't do everything.
