calling it like it is hardly qualifies as "throwing a player under the bus"
as long as he has an "open door" policy where the player can discuss these issues with him i'm very OK with his bluntness. this way the player won't ...

| SEC Rant|| re: Why such terrible out of conference scheduling by SEC schools? - LSU GrandDad on 3/2/15 at 10:18 am|
OOC games are basically "pre-season" games. most of them will always be against the cupcakes and not just because they are a rent-a-win. they only demand about a million bucks (they desparately need the money) which allows the SEC school to make more bucks to fund their entire athletic dept. budget....

I doubt any of these guys win it, but if so, i'd go with mcelwain due to recruiting florida athletes. sure, tejas has lots of athletes too but sumlin recruits for the offense only (basically) and simply doesn't give a shite about the running game....

i'm not a demanding guy when it comes to baseball facilities. some of the old stadiums, alex box for instance, had a boatload of charm and was a nostalgic experience attending a game there.

based on the limited time I saw him play last year I also think (emphasize THINK) he is the better passer and the faster runner.
