High School Football Disasters for $50, 10 Ring. Which area coach went for it of 4th and 6 from their their own four yard line Friday night? Which TFP writer blamed the kids intead of the coach?
10 Ring, saw Fury the other night. The tailor made costuming was spot on. It's also nice to see a war movie with limited CGI. The producers had real Shermans to work with. Other than that it's just another shoot'em, except for Brad Pitt (our flawed hero) bartering six eggs with two German girls for a chance to clean himself up. I guess the scene is there to tell us that Mr. Pitt is brutal, but he's no rapist. A scene of this sort was cut from Apocalypse Now. Boring.
The movie does have merits beyond the above and as such is worth a ticket, but producers tout all you like, this is not Oscar material.
10 Ring, isn't a bit early to gush on about the Tide? So they got off the mat and dusted themselves off to defeat an already exposed and reeling A&M at home and a woeful Tennessee on the road.
Saban takes his charges to Death Valley November 8th to do battle with a wounded but fully functional Saber Tooth Tiger left for dead by MSU and Auburn. LSU is the team that has truly gotten off the mat and done something: beat #3 Ranked Mississipi. New look Bama ain't faced that kind of test yet let alone pass it.
It must be Monday, the start of another week of your whining about anything Tennessee. This week you target backup QB Joshua Dobbs. Jomo, this kid is an aerospace engineering major. No doubt smarter than the usual Urban Studies Major . This kid may be smarter than 10 Ring, Patrick Brown and David Paschal and Weeds put together.
"Dobbs went 19-of-32 for 192 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception. He also rushed for 75 yards on 19 carries in his first action of the season. Dobbs helped the Vols cut the lead to 27-17 in the third quarter before Alabama's Derrick Henry stopped Tennessee's momentum with a 28-yard touchdown run."
Given the snap of a twig will sap the Vols momentum, Dobbs made it interesting into the fourth, meaning Dobbs was doing it against the Tide's first team defense. No garbage time.
"I thought [Dobbs] was in command," Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. "I thought Josh showed some very good poise."
Jomo, you want to bad mouth "The Natural, Butch Jones," be my guest? Dobbs "in command" with "very good poise?" Butch, why the hell did you not see it at practice and put it on the field? Hell, Dobbs didn't even start the game for Smokey's sake.
Patrick Brown, were there indications at practice?
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.
