Yep. Crazy good. The play that really stood out to me among the many great plays by this young man is at about .55 seconds in - the throw off the receivers hands and he's coming up for the hit and instead recognizes t...

[quote]Actually, I have been hearing that the pitchers are liking the new ball.[/quote]
I asked my oldest son who is a D-1 pitcher and he said he loves the new balls. He's always had a lot of movement so the lower seams must not be affecting the movement too much if pitchers are liking the new bal...

[quote]Are we even sure CP was offered?[/quote]
This. I haven't seen anything that says an offer was extended. In fact, I recall references to Miles not thinking Pendergast was a good fit culturally and his not knowing the area re recruiting was a negative. There was also talk of LSU not making ...

and that after 3 complete steps w the ball clearly under control.
The rule is bad enough requiring a receiver to "complete the process" of making a catch all the way to the ground (why wasn't the play complete when his knee t...

Imagine that, can't develop a QB.
Seriously, while it sucks the Tigers finished 8-5, most didn't expect much better than that. Imagine how the Sooner fans feel after starting the season ranked N...

Interesting stat. How many total games did we lose in that same time period? I'm guessing not many more than that....

Guess you forgot how close we were to beating Bama. I'd call that in the mix, and the Arky game could have very well been much different had we beaten Bam...

[quote] I know Mett had a great year last year, but his type of season is the exception and not the norm. The sad part is Jennings' performances is the norm for the offense under Miles. [/quote]
Unfortunately, I can't disagree :(
Hard to understand why we can't get better QB play. Everyone though...

[quote]PS - clear proof is that if he didn't change after 1/9/12 then he NEVER will. This year's Arky game looked exactly like 1/9/12 and we never tried anything different, not personnel or playcalling. We just froze again like a deer in the headlights and were not able/willing to try anything else....

I think you mean 25 yard line, and while Bama having to go that additional 10 yards would have helped, not sure how that 10 yard difference "changes EVERYTHING." ...
