I've noticed in so many pictures of recruits that they are holding up a backwards L (to them it looks correct). It's almost like a hook em symbol but just the L. Who started this? I'm really for or against it but if we are going to take a picture doing it I would like to see it from the viewers st...

I've never seen a game called so bad. The score got so high because everyone was in foul trouble. JOBIII got his first foul for breaking a sweat like a minute into the game. We were never able to implement a game plan on offense because JOB was almost immediately in foul trouble and then on defense ...

Personally I don't think he's a bad assistant. He did well at USC as a recruiter and assistant. Saban obviously sees something in him. That being said I think he's very dirty. He may not break the rules but he is going to find ways around them in recruiting and do everything he can to beat the o...

I would recommend taking a hunter safety class first.

The nice thing about this year is there aren't a lot of major jobs open anyway. UT and USC and UW are the only 3 of any significance. IMO UT won't throw this kind of money at a guy like miles. They may offer 6 mil or 8 mil but I'm not sure the boosters would ante up for Miles or any other college co...

The way I see it.

Odell Beckham Jr - Speed, Quickness
Jeremy Hill - Power and Elusive Speed
Jarvis Landry - Strong Hands, Tight Routes, Large Frame
La'el Collins - Large Security and Wing Span

In my experience it depends on how you use it. If a deer is under the feeder when it goes off then yes it's going to scare them. I've seen them run off and at times come right back. What I've learned to do is only let if go off for a few seconds just before daylight. This allows them to eat all day ...
