Bizarre. I thought Rene was doing a decent job, but Magath does have a pretty big reputation. I know much less about him than our Bundesliga people though.

On right now, in Argentina. Higuain through on goal but can't score. Argentina really could have two already.
Colombia don't look that great at the moment, but they do have some interesting attacking players. Falcao obviously, Jackson Martinez, James Rodriguez, etc. Not that I've seen a whole l...
| Soccer Board|| DaMarcus Beasley - Crede15 on 3/26/13 at 11:34 pm|
He's maybe not a great left-back (not surprising considering he's not a left-back), but he's a great squad player. He was on a yellow early on versus a good winger, had numerous little injury problems, and dealt with it like a fricking man.
I just like having him around. Partially it's good memor...

I'm not sure we have.
This isn't a rah-rah Anthony Grant thread. I'm not as negative as some but I hate our offense, and would trade him for Gregg Marshall in a second. Forget the Bruce Pearl shit, it isn't happening.

Don't think I've ever done an appreciation thread, but I just thought this guy maybe didn't get his due.
Not a star, sure. Wasn't a great pass rusher but the coaches obviously appreciated him as he was a consistent starter for us, and, considering he was a team captain, his teammates loved him t...

It's become pretty clear that LSU has some advantages that Auburn and Tennessee just don't have.
You don't have to have a great coach/transcendent QB to win at LSU. They are lucky enough to be sitting on a goldmine of talent with no instate rival to pull said talent.
Auburn and Tennessee jus...

Congrats to Alabama (or Georgia) and Johnny fricking Football (I'm not a big fan of the nickname, but whatever, he's legit and he just won the Heisman).

For a large part of the LSU game he was pretty bad, the drive saved him, but let's move on.
The play before the Yeldon fumble today should have been a touchdown, but Cooper had to wait for ages on the ball.
The Kenny Bell long catch was along those same lines, although less of an overthrow. ...

They need to chill on the social issues but I don't think that's their biggest long-term problem, it's the way they've completely gone out of their way to alienate the fastest growing minority group.
It's not even like it's a complete game changer now - but it will be.

Am I crazy to think that Ole Miss is the best team we've played?
I'm not sure I'd be too confident about this but I'd give Ole Miss a really good shot against Michigan, State, and Tennessee on a neutral field.
Granted, we've dominated everyone, and that's something. USCe had trouble with Ken...

Not a flame thread, although I'm sure it will be taken that way.
Ole Miss really played well against us. Granted, we may have been more "up" for this game - I'm sure we were actually. But there's no doubt who gave us the tougher game.
But it's more than that. State has the better record, but...

Granted, they haven't scored, and he didn't exactly cover himself in glory on the INT, but we do have a pretty good defense.
He's taken a beating and still stood in there and made some good throws. It's not like he has an amazing group of receivers either.

Not sure why I'm bothering with this except for the fact that I'm bored. I'm trying to do this on merit (with some eyeball test). I think Alabama is probably the best team, but after watching Florida for the last few weeks it's not like it's beyond obvious.
| SEC Rant|| Fluker could kill us versus LSU - Crede15 on 10/20/12 at 9:16 pm|
I feel pretty confident we'll win because of how awful LSU's offense is, but Fluker has seriously regressed this year. Last year I thought his pass blocking was underrated (and I said so on here numerous times), but this year he's been a bit of a turnstile.
Seriously, what has happened to him? L...
| SEC Rant|| How mediocre is this group of SEC wide receivers? - Crede15 on 10/20/12 at 4:15 pm|
Has to be the worst group in a number of years
Alabama: I like Bell, Norwood, Jones, Cooper, etc., but there's obviously no star.
LSU: Really bad considering how erratic Beckham has been.
Florida: I've seen them play 3-4 times and have a tough time even thinking of a Florida WR outside o...

He just always looks like the same guy to me. He looked pretty good his RS freshman year, pretty good his sophomore year, pretty good this year, etc. Always good enough, never close to elite.
I suspect Georgia fans blame Richt and Bobo, and his performance tonight certainly wasn't all on him, bu...
| SEC Rant|| After today, who's that pleased with their team? - Crede15 on 9/29/12 at 11:34 pm|
Alabama: Pretty mediocre offensive performance. Ole Miss has a fairly creative offense and a totally different offense then one's we've faced, so I'm not that worried about that. It's not last year's defense but everyone knew that.
I think we're really good, just not sure we're great. O-Line is ...
