I’m certainly no fan of “identity politics”, per se, but I have to admit I’m enjoying seeing Dems struggling to cope with Governor Abbot. Would be interesting to see should he decide to run for the Oval Office one day. ...

Quick search tip/no sarcasm at all to this, seriously: If you’re searching for something relatively obscure----and a search for ODB’s thrilling punt return TD in a game just two years ago is not obscure---and have a high degree of confidence that a specific word or even phrase will be part of the ti...

This is the correct answer. Sooner they hit the league, the sooner they get to that second contract (although the vast majority of them won't be in the league by then)....

What we’ll see exactly is still an open question, but the first couple or so drives should go as follows:
• Run (including read option)
• Short pass
Aubie is gonna stack the box as it is, and we’ll want to weather the noise and emotional “storm” that comes with the opening of a big game on th...

Look, as a fan, I always want LSU to win every time they step on the field; oftentimes, I fully expect them to do so as well.
There are many reasons why not to expect a win this Saturday, but I’ll be cheering like hell for them to win nonetheless. What’s nearly as important to me as a win is that...

Suspect O line play to date is also why Harris is in. While both are mobile, Harris seems to know where to go with the ball more fluidly and smoothly than Jennings.
When you're dodging and darting, you best do so emphatically and with a purpose. Harris does this, or at least he did last week. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Brandon Harris will start! - official - ffhouston on 9/29/14 at 1:42 pm|
One way would be calling plays that accentuate his mobility---a designed rollout/”moving pocket”, for example. Roll him to a side and give him a primary and secondary read, and if it’s not there he either throws it away or tucks and runs for what he can get.
Since the run option actually part of...
