| SEC Rant|| For the LSU fans: Directions to the Tuscaloosa Krystals - Monticello on 11/8/13 at 8:17 pm|
I figure most of the LSU fans from out of town will want to stop by the Krystals in Tuscaloosa to grab a burger after the game. Convenient walking distance to all the chain hotels on McFarland, depending on where you decide to fall asleep tomorrow night. Here is the google map link.
| SEC Rant|| Why I think Saban leaves within the next few years - Monticello on 10/25/13 at 5:37 pm|
Bama fans are completely spoiled and bored of success. I have to include myself in that category. If there is anything that will run Saban off for a new challenge, it is the feeling that the overall program has become content, boring, and complacent, which in all honesty, it is starting to become. T...

I get that we have 3 new starters, but Cristobal also has some of the best raw talent in the nation to work with and develop. Even with inexperience, Alabama should never have an entire unit that is one of the worst in the SEC. Too much talent on campus for that to happen. We seemed to get more phys...

| SEC Rant|| Idea to help East teams play each West team more often - Monticello on 7/26/13 at 5:22 pm|
If we stay at 8 game SEC schedules I think we should consider a model where you don't play your non-permanent game home and away in consecutive years. Stagger it where a schedule might look like this for example:
Auburn cross divisional schedule under a 6-1-1 model:
2015: UGA, @UT

That's right. The current members of the AAC went 3-2 v. the SEC. And all 3 games were blowouts.
Louisville over Florida 33-23
Louisville over Kentucky 32-14
Rutgers over Arkansas 35-26
I guarantee that is a stat we hear repeatedly over the course of this coming season as Herbie, etc promote...
| SEC Rant|| FYI: The Full Text of the NCAA Rulebook Regarding Targeting - Monticello on 7/23/13 at 8:36 pm|
This is going to be the most controversial change to the NCAA rulebook in decades. Estimates based on the number of targeting calls last year show that a minimum of 110-120 players will be ejected under this rule this coming season. The SEC Rant will go crazy debating every potential targeting call ...
| SEC Rant|| Will too much SEC dominance end up hurting the SEC in the end? - Monticello on 7/23/13 at 5:46 am|
7 in a row is awesome and unprecedented, but here is what I fear if the streak gets to around 10 or 11:
1. Elite recruits from non-SEC states increase the growing trend of leaving home for SEC schools because they see it as a league with an entirely different level of competition, facilities, pas...

| SEC Rant|| Warning: Expansion Thread: Cincinnati? - Monticello on 7/19/13 at 11:43 pm|
First off, I personally hope expansion is over. But if it is not, we need to be proactive. If the SEC feels the need to expand to 16 (or if the Big 10 takes Mizzou from us), there are very few schools available to poach with these deals signed by all the ACC and Big 12 programs that essentially lock...

| SEC Rant|| SEC West records over the last 5 years excluding the best season - Monticello on 7/11/13 at 5:57 pm|
Auburn critics always seem to point out that without Cam, Auburn is a shitty program. But when comparing Auburn to other programs, it is unfair to dismiss AU's best season while including the best season of everyone else. So let's see how each program stacks up over the last 5 years when we exclude ...

| SEC Rant|| Any Bama fans out there slightly miss the Dubose/Franchione/Shula years? - Monticello on 7/2/13 at 1:09 pm|
3 out of 4 national titles is great and I would not trade it for anything, but I think it is spoiling the fan base and taking a lot of the fun out of college football.
For example, remember when we used to go nuts when a guy like Julio Jones, Andre Smith, or hell, even Jimmy Johns committed? Now...

| SEC Rant|| Newcomer you most look forward to watching this coming season - Monticello on 6/19/13 at 11:15 am|
For me it is hands down TE OJ Howard. I have always felt that the Alabama offense with the 2 TE set could have so much more potential if we could recruit a truly elite TE. Of course I am not comparing Alabama to the Patriots or Howard to Gronkowski or Hernandez, but I think Alabama's offense is goin...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Can't decide who I should keep in my fantasy football keeper league - Monticello on 6/15/13 at 11:41 am|
It's a 12 team league. You get to keep 3 every year and the penalty is 2 draft spots from wherever they were drafted last year. My best options are these 4:
WR Randall Cobb -could get him in the 7th round
WR Danny Amendola - could get him in the 12th round
QB Colin Kaepernick -could get him in ...

I have to give tFlagship credit. At it's peak, Arkansas fans were by far the most entertaining characters on this forum. With their flags raised high, full steam ahead, they were a collective group on a mission.

Finebaum was born in Memphis and went to Tennessee, but has ran his Alabama/Auburn based show out of Birmingham for the last 33 years. He has constantly bashed Les Miles for the last 5 years and considers him to be a total fool who is merely coasting on the immense talent available to him with a pro...

The knock on short QBs is they can't see over their lineman and they have too many tipped passes at the line.
