re: Which potential opening week upset would induce the biggest board melt? - ironsides
[quote]Arky over Auburn bc of the Bret Fatiema hype. All of these injuries and suspensions at Auburn are starting to make this an intriguing game.[/quote] If it were to happen, there would be so many different angles to discuss. In addition to being essentially going from the NC game to losing to...

re: Which potential opening week upset would induce the biggest board melt? - ironsides
Definitely Arkansas over auburn; LSU and Bama would still be in the drivers seat for the SECW. All auburn fans have been extremely dismissive even without having their starting QB, star CB suspended and losing their heisman candidate RB to boot. This would be combined with the multitude of dorma...

re: What can the NBA do to become more popular in the south? - ironsides
I used to love the NBA. Something happened about 20 years ago, but the game got less exciting. Doesn't seem to have he same parity it used to. They changed the way the rules are enforced, making the game more offense oriented. The regular season seems like a joke. That and the Knicks suck and th...

re: Tax revenues hit all time high for FY 2014 - ironsides
I'm not sure I understand your post. Certainly lots of statements for you to back up. The reality is this: raising taxes lessens the ability of consumers and investors to spend. It increases the governments ability to spend, however it is less effective at job creation in most cases than the priv...

re: WTF was Saban thinking kicking that FG? - ironsides
[quote]Not exactly. It's about recognizing the situation, being prepared, and making a good decision. If Saban and the staff had been alert, they would have easily seen that there was no way in hell that the FG would be blocked because Auburn didn't have the personnel on the field to block it. C...

[quote]I disagree. While it is extremely unlikely that a tie game will come down to a field goal attempt from a distance where the kicker may not have enough leg to get it out of the end zone. It isn't unlikely that a defense filled with athletes many whom likely play on punt return 1st or 2nd team ...

re: Was the Auburn Kick6 truly a "miracle" play? - ironsides
What's really crazy is that after reading your post, the kick 6 is the only one between two ranked teams (which is to say, two teams that are competitive talent-wise). Fine it's not a miracle. It is extremely lucky - yes - perfectly executed, however it's not like you could replicate that if you...

[quote]Not really. LSU (Beckham) pulled the same thing against UAB. Long kick, from the hash, weak kicker. If it is going to happen, those are the circumstances you'd look for. Just so happens those were the circumstances for both plays. Honestly, I think it happens 2-3 times per season.[/quote] :...
