Do I draft Winston? Probably, but not with a first round pick. I would consider it in the second round, but maybe pass until the third. Sometimes something looks good on the menu, but its best to order something else.
I see where UTK booted Treyvon Paulk off the team for punching his girlfriend in the face. I applaud UTK for that. Had Phil Fulmer had the testicles to do punishment like that he might still be coaching. That being said...I guess Jacksonville State has their new running back for next season....Treyvon Paulk.
Braves have fired the GM, Frank Wrenn. Now they need to fire Freddie and the rest of his staff. They should however encourage the new manager to keep Roger McDowell. Roger did his job. Eddie Perez did his job also. But, the new manager should have the right to hire his own staff and not have anybody forced upon him.
If the Braves don't fire Freddie, they have not done everything they need to.
I still don't like the NFL overtime rules. I think they improved it with teams getting the ball if the first team only gets a field goal, but still, something wrong with a team not getting a chance to have the ball.
I think they should take the college system and modify it. Rather than the 25 yard line, put the ball on the 40 or 50 and then do it just like college. For that matter, I think college should move the ball back to the 40 or 50 also.
Mark, agreed. I would axe the coaching staff en masse. I would ask the new manager to consider re-hiring Roger McDowell and Eddie Perez, but that would be the new manager's call. They must also make some major changes on the roster. Bite the bullet and get rid of BJ Upton. His salary is sunk cost, keeping him on the roster will not help the team. They must upgrade their bench in the off season also. Times for changes to begin.
One name? Pele comes to mind. Jomo11, I know you went to McCallie, but us public schoolers learned that "The Mick" is two words, not one.
Booting Winston off the FSU might be the best thing for him, not for FSU, but for him. He would still be a high draft pick and maybe, just maybe this would finally wake him up. He obviously hasn't learned any lessons and matured. A half game suspension is probably not going to make him learn either. Maybe kicking him off the team and banning him from the athletic premises would.
Also the birthday of Hall of Fame pitcher Gaylor Perry, he is 76 years young today. A rare baby photo of him: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-YKMsFeKyILI/T0msiLNippI/AAAAAAAAUYY/0nFjLvf97PM/s400/DSC_9534.JPG
Can see the twinkle in his eye thinking of his future "puffball".
JMC, I am not passing judgement either way on Benniefield...too few plays of a vanilla nature with lots of second/third stringers in the game to form an opinion of him. Will say they, he and Roberson, both look athletic in different ways. Roberson is sorta like Tebow in playing style supposedly and he showed it somewhat in his very limited chance.
Is Dooley still coaching in Knoxville? He isn't? Who is then? I dont' follow UTK or SEC sports closely but all I hear is this Dooley guy is responsible for the loss Saturday and for the team that is UTK. We are talking Derek, and not Barbara or Vince, correct?
Isn't "big bad newspaper folk" redundant?
