10 Ring, you're really stepping out this week with your Fab 4 picks. I'm not concerned so much any particular game. It's those Juicy entertainment dollars on your 6 picks that's got me a'thinking. Hell, an such an accumulation of entertainment dollars could pay my light bill.
Given Kiffin's emergency exit from K-TOWN to take the USC job only to get fired. Lane's the one with a screw loose. Coach Davis'(pbuh) was the prophet of Lanes' BS to come. What the Raiders need is move to LA. The Raiders then would have a chance at signing a quality coach with quality pedigree, and free agents of a higher caliber. These necessary pieces will not occur while the Raider's in Oak Town.
Ten Ring, if the ever litigious Coach Davis, pbuh, were still among us, he'd sue his son Mark and GM Reggie for gross incompetence.
At least the QB of the future, Derek Carr, is identified, yet first rounder Khalil Mack's pass rush needs a push. As long as Mack keeps his head, something, all everything Rolando McClain could not do in Oakland, the sack count will come.
Going 0-7 sucks, but I live 3000 miles away. Meltdowns in Oakland don't sting as much as being a Vol fan for the last five or six years.
And yes, if O.J. faced South African justice, he wouldn't have walked.
Aaron is over looked......Big Time.
One of the greatest tandems ever in baseball: Eddie Matthews and Hammering Hank. These men in late 50's and early 60's clouted 863 dingers together.
A bud and I were talking about the Vols and their freakshow of an offensive line. My pal says, "Oh, they'll get better next year." I say zero X zero = zero. Can you, 10 Ring, provide some insight?
10 Ring, letting your hair down and whatever else seems quite the cathartic testament about your entrainment choices this season. Is this self-medication or the result of time spent with a sports psychologist?
I can’t remember the last time anyone on your board has taken you to task on a Monday morning for misplaced entertainment resources over a weekend, although, you do have a wider audience than just those who assemble here.
Congrats to KC in what is turning into a year of what was down seeps to the top. Maybe this is a variable worth more examination?
10 Ring, I found myself listening to a good bit of "The Show" yesterday. I believe one of the topic was how all this success at MSU changes the dynamic there, specifically Mullen is in demand.
Caught up with my MSU Commitment nephew yesterday. He was down there Saturday. Needless to say he was bowled over by the entire experience.
Here's a new beneficial and immediately measurable change. There were 200 recruits in the stadium Saturday. So many, the Hostesses were overwhelmed. Seems Coach may have a chance to flesh out this year's class with top quality candidates.
The Commitment also shared that a Hostess asked him what he knew about Beretta shotguns. She might as well have asked if he could fix a shell extractor. Smartly, the recruit didn't try to BS. The Hostess said, "Oh, I suppose we'll teach you." Not so fast young lady, 101 and 102 scheduled at an undisclosed location near Auburn this spring. Can't have kids learning about expensive shotguns on the street.
WINSTON: Uh, Coach...
JUMBO: What's it this time?
WINSTON: Coach, I signed all that Memorabilia for the National LGBTQ Task Force fundraisers during Winter Party on South Beach. You know its all about raising awareness and stuff.
JUMBO: That can't account for 300 signitaures.
WINSTON: Oh yeah, then there was the White Party Week (Not what you think) in March down on South Beach. Another round of fundraisaers. You know, it's all about raising awareness and stuff.
JUMBO: Well, that could make 300. The exact number that the dealer has in stock.
WINSTON: I guess those folks didn't appreciate the value of Seminole Football as much as the dealer. He had a booth set up to buy anything signed by a sports figure.
JUMBO: I had to ask. Are you ready to "collar" Notre Dame Saturday?
WINSTON: You bet coach, which football do you want me to bring.
10 Ring, you got jobbed on that long ball, no doubt, but the pointed ended bounces cannot always go in Auburn's favor.
According to Mississippi State schedule, according to State's schedule. Who would have thunk that could happen on week one?
State has three games left in the West. Arkansas at home and on the road to Bama and Ole Miss. Mullen drew Kentucky and Vandy from the East. That's about as good as one could hope for, ever, even if Wildcats have raised their game of late. Tennessee Martin must be Homecoming.
Still plenty of rocks and shoals ahead to mold the Bulldogs this way or that.
Stern test for the tepid Vols offensive line Saturday against Ole Miss' front four. This game's at least 17.
10 Ring, Some of the guys went down to see Skye Wilson in the hospital and report Skye's in good spirits for someone with torn ACL, MCL and Meniscus. All I hear about Skye is what a good guy he is. May the wind find Skye's back again.
Auburn -3. Maybe, but have the Tigers played anyone of note? You could say LSU, but MSU blew up that myth in Death Valley, then blew up A&M at home. I'll take MSU at +3. Better than the earlier +4.
Oh, yes!!! The "Nature" is sooooo charismatic, he's already done more for Tennessee Athletics than the General, Majors, Manning and Summitt combined already. Just look at that recruiting class. I mean look at the potential energy there.
AJ McCarron turncoat? Well, he did date at gal from Auburn. Kershaw, was his Uncle the Kershaw in the Joe Kershaw Orchestra?
Always the first with the UT critism. The "Natural" Butch Jones might want to recruit Chattanooga some day. Jones is a great man doing a great job. I'd let him date my sister, if I had one.
Some might fall for that, but the Masters was the Major Norman wanted most, and it showed.
Watch it with Lebron. Maybe he's too proud to say he obtained a Degree and Masters in Basketball Arts this summer Online from Cleveland's famed 17th Street Barber Academy.
