| Tiger Rant|| Ex. 59,000 Coach Jones can coach - therick711 on 12/19/14 at 10:15 am|
The ongoing meme on this board since Coach Jones took over is that he "isn't an Xs and Os guy" or that he doesn't "adjust" or that he isn't a good "game coach." All of these terms are really just replacement for actual analysis like "we didn't have a closer at the end of games last year" and "start...

Apparently he can dropkick like a beast as well.
The guy is a monster. I take back everything bad I said about him as a sophomore.*
*Note: I don't think I ever said anything bad about him. :...
| SEC Rant|| How Does Myles Garrett Compare? - therick711 on 12/1/14 at 8:46 am|
At 6'5" and 255 lbs, Myles Garrett was a highly sought after recruit.
He has been A&M's best defender this year, but because of their struggles, that is akin to saying he smells the best in a garbage dump. He is a y...
| Tiger Rant|| Special Teams Issues - therick711 on 11/19/14 at 11:00 am|
So we can't really cover punts anymore, the most accurate kicker in the country can't make field goals, we can't successfully squib a ball, and our punt returner rarely fields punts unless it is inside the 10 yard line.
It isn't all bad news, though. We're still way better than Kentucky at speci...
| SEC Rant|| Dre Kirkpatrick or Jamal Adams? - therick711 on 11/6/14 at 11:14 am|
Dre Kirkpatrick had a very good college career. I think his game is very similar to that of Jamal Adams. Despite the position difference, both have great recovery speed, instincts, and play the ball exceptionally well.
When Adams is done who do you think will end up having the better college ca...
| SEC Rant|| What is it about Alabama's culture that makes its bad fans the craziest? - therick711 on 11/4/14 at 12:05 pm|
One of the main themes on this board after the teabagger, Updyke, the Texas A&M flag lunatic, the broad jumping on the people at the game, etc. is that those people don't represent the Alabama fanbase as a whole. That is correct, I can attest that Alabama has many nice fans who are normal, well-adj...
| SEC Rant|| With the stAte Bowl this weekend between AU and OM, thoughts on the coaches - therick711 on 10/29/14 at 10:08 am|
At stAte, Arthur was 9-3 (7-1) Danny was 10-2 (8-0). Neither had the guts to coach the Bowl game.
Who has had the better career so far, Danny or Arthur?
I think that Gus has been pretty darn good everywhere he's been and so far has been better than Danny. The question is, going forward, whos...
| SEC Rant|| What Conclusion to draw from Ole Miss' Defensive Performance Last Week - therick711 on 10/28/14 at 12:42 pm|
Going into last Saturday, Ole Miss was near universally considered the best defense in both the SEC and the country.
After they gave up a veritable avalanche of rushing yards to LSU, do we draw the conclusion that Louisville actually has the best defense in the country and Ole Miss looked good ...
| Tiger Rant|| How Objective/much of a Homer am I? - therick711 on 10/27/14 at 5:48 pm|
I thought the pass interference call on LSU on the last drive was bull shite.
The reasons: 1) the Ole Miss defender pulled the LSU guy over him; and 2) it wasn't catchable even if unimpeded because the ball was so severely underthrown.
What's the consensus?
If I'm a homer in your estimation p...
| SEC Rant|| Pope set to visit Oxford - therick711 on 10/27/14 at 9:42 am|
Congrats to Ole Miss for being the first SEC school (according to a google search) to host a sitting pontiff. The visit appears to be centered around the process which has begun to cannonize Danny Freeze, Jr. The push started once the Holy See received word of both the quality and quantity of Free...

One of the things that really adds to the atmosphere of SEC Football are the scenic Falls that the south is famous for. From the Smokys to the Plains, SEC Falls really add to the on campus experience that we all enjoy. You know during a good Fall, that your school is going to fight for victory. I...

Didn't see this posted. Calipari gives radio interview, then Mike Francesa talks shite about him after he leaves the studio. Calls in to address it as John from Kentucky. Nice work, Cal.
| SEC Rant|| Why Doesn't the Conference Negotiate Apparel deals for all members? - therick711 on 7/17/14 at 11:20 am|
A brief break from the trolling and preseason threads. Does anyone know why apparel isn't handled at the conference level? The conference splits revenue and each school gets more as a unit in many other facets. It would seem that the brand names of the SEC would fetch a pretty good return if pack...
