| Coaching Changes|| Does anyone take a chance on Lane Kiffin? - tenacious on 12/4/14 at 3:18 pm|
I know he's a gigantic turd, but he did a great job running the Bama offense this year, and might have matured under Saban. Just wondering if he's back in the mix as a HC candidate now?...

TM is a game changer, a play maker and one of the most disruptive db's I've ever seen.
LC is a good player, but he's no TM....
| Tiger Rant|| Dural and Jennings - tenacious on 9/9/14 at 2:20 pm|
Going back to the Arkansas game last year, Dural and Jennings have connected on 7 passes for 340 yards and 5 TD's. Insane!
I know I'm stating the obvious, but I just thought it was worth repeating again... And again... And again......

But I like the way he plays it. He gives the Michael Jordan comments at Media Days, but then he down plays it on ESPN. He's crazy like a fox. He gives enough to show that LF will be great, but then he leaves it there. It's like a great poker player who has an awesome hand. He baits you in and until ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Great Miles quote on First Take - tenacious on 7/21/14 at 9:55 am|
Yep. I loved how he slow played all the LF questions. You can tell he knows that LF is going to be great, but he's going to let the kid do it on the field. ...

When did I say anything about hating people? This is what's wrong with this issue. If you demonize someone for seeing things differently, you can wr...

I'd agree with that, but I still think there are complex issues here that are problematic. These issues are inevitable, but there needs to be more grace on both si...

Thanks for putting words in my mouth.
I don't have that fear any more than I have the same fear that every woman would want that. But to deny that the sexual component and issues of attraction would be problematic is disingenuous.
It is obvious from these responses, as I posted earlier, that...

I don't think these two issues are the same, and I don't think they play out in a team environment in the same way. Being gay is not the same thing as being of a different race, and being uncomfortable about homosexuality in the locker room is different from being racist. There is no sexual compone...

The real travesty in this society is that you're no longer allowed to say how you really feel about this issue. You're basically forced to tiptoe around it, and you're not allowed to feel uncomfortable with it. Unless you completely embrace it, you're a bigot. Forget the fact that it adds a complica...
