You can have both of those in the mailbag because each is excellent.
McKillop could not succeed against the Caliparis, Donovans, et al. of big-time college hoops because he would not get in the muck needed to go get the talent. Jimmys and Joes way more important than Xs and Os. Ask Mark Fox, Or Jeff Lebo. Or Tubby Smith. Or any of the other elite strategery guys that have struggled because they could not get enough blue chippers.
And, if McKillop's not getting an extra five calls a game, who knows how many more he losses.
So, what did we miss?
Here's our short list of potential names that will be floated.
Concur with MT that Gruden will 'kick the tires' and then say he's not interested. Fulmer will offer no comment.
Jomo's usual suspects will be floated, but he's right. It will cost BIG money for Marshall, and even they he may say no. Smart turned down UCLA couple of years ago, so we don't think he'd be interested.
We'd add Howland, MT, and love the idea of Richard Pitino in the league.
FE to the C —
That's a fair and measured assessment. Well played indeed sir.
Jordan is on both lists.
His first comeback was awesome. His second, well, not so much.
Yes, a strange day indeed. We'll even spend Press Row complimenting Danny Boy. It will be tough — and we'll need a shower afterward — but so it goes.
Do not think the course is too hard per se, but a sneaky thing we talked about was the fact that the trees were so much thinner so the wind was whipping all over the place.
That said, we think the players did not embrace the moment. In truth all it would have taken was one player putting some birdies on the board and that would have pushed Bubba into who knows what state.
No Uggla = 10 runs.
Hey, conversely, if every other Div. I basketball team outside of Lee County, Ala., decided to suspend basketball operations, the Auburn Tigers would be preseason No. 1 in the country
Is that nice?
Good times, and if a Georgia Pine falls at Augusta National and Phil and Tiger are not around to get the credit, did it actually happen.
If it were not for UConn and Robert Morris, UK would have won the last four tournaments it entered.
Thanks for the feedback and for reading along.
The questions get asked, we try to give answers. Of course having PF in the mix does give one the urge to grab a quick shower.
Great list FE to the C.
We'll go Tiger in 2005 with the Nike commercial chip. Jack's "Yes Sir!" putt on 17 in '86. Mize's chip on 11. Phil's putt and jump (at least attempted jump) on the 72 hole in 2004.
And for the modern, saw them in person, we'll go Bubba from the woods and Louis Oosthuizen from Ooltewah's double eagle on 2 two years ago, Mickelson almost making three eagles in a row. Rory playing from the cabins.
The 2014 Masters has picked up where the 2013 Masters left off.
Adam Scott, who recorded a historic win here last year, sits at 4 under early in his back nine after making a birdie on No. 10. He currently has a two shot lead over Bill Haas, who is still on the course.
Kevin Stadler and Jonas Blixt are in with 2-under 70s.
The final group of the first round, which includes Baylor School grad Harris English is about to tee off at 1:59 p.m.
