He could play for 20 more years, but he's not going to be competing for wins week in week out into his 50s, and certainly not in every major. The oldest major winner was 48 although Tom Watson gave it a go in 09 on a course tailor made...

one thing that has been overlooked and i think more important than scheme, is that the tackling was much MUCH better. Before Saturday it was abysmal. i really do think that as bad as the scheme was and as lost as our players were in both the UGA and Ole Miss games, if we'd tackled better we'd have...

CBS's NFL game is either at 11:30 or 3:30. They could conceivably televise the night game, however, as i mentioned i don't think they will because i doubt they would go up against the NFL. As i said, i fully expect ESPN to televise i...

Yeah, i know nothing official, but my post is really based more around the likelihood that ESPN televises it.

To add a common thread to #s 1, 2, 3, and 7, the tackling on this team is abysmal. With everything that went wrong last night, if LSU tackled even at an average clip, they likely win. What is concerning is that I'm not sure how that gets fixed. I tend to think that if a guy can't ...
