| Coaching Changes|| Texas job via Alabama (circa 2002) - HoopyD on 12/11/13 at 11:05 am|
Coach Franchione left Alabama for a job in Texas in 2002 but I can't remember the circumstances as to why he left. Was he unhappy at Alabama? Was A&M just his dream job? Was Alabama facing probation?
I honestly can't remember why he made the lateral move. Anyone?...

| SEC Rant|| Longest streak of being bad in a sport - HoopyD on 12/3/13 at 10:19 am|
Which SEC team has the longest streak of being bad in either football, basketball or baseball?
The one that comes to mind is Auburn in basketball (doesn't seem like they've had a good team since the Chris Porter days). Who am I not thinking of?...

Mike is a good guy. I knew him in college and he was on the basketball team. He's always been sincere in his beliefs and on the straight and narrow; not just when it was profitable to do so. ...

You do realize who the media picked as 1st team preseason All SEC QB? Were they just being dicks too?
If it makes you feel better, the starting Bama 11 should be named 1st team all SEC. Both sides of the ball. There. Now don't go kill anyone because of my opinion. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: SEC POY predictions - HoopyD on 12/3/13 at 6:47 am|
Usually POY goes to the best player on the best team.....that's Mason.
Or it's a lifetime achievement to a well respected player. That's Murray.
| SEC Rant|| SEC POY predictions - HoopyD on 12/3/13 at 6:39 am|
I vote Murray. He basically had to carry the offense for long stretches of the season.
2nd choice would be Tre Mason. ...

| SEC Rant|| Top 25 players revisted - HoopyD on 12/2/13 at 2:54 pm|
In the pre-season, ESPN compiled a list of the top 25 players in the SEC for 2013. The list was as follows:
No. 1: J. Clowney, DE, South Carolina, Jr
•No. 2: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M, So.
•No. 3: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia, So.
•No. 4: AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama, Sr.
•No. 5: Aaron Murray, ...

Which player exceeded your expectations for 2013 and which fell short?
Exceeded - I'll go with Delahoussaye. Guy was money all year.
Fell short - A Johnson. I thought he'd have a Nick Fairley/Glen Dorsey type year. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Weird year for LSU defense - HoopyD on 12/1/13 at 4:45 pm|
A subpar LSU defense shut down one of the nation's premier passing offenses (A&M) and rushing offenses (Auburn).
How does that happen?...
| SEC Rant|| Illegal receiver down the field - HoopyD on 12/1/13 at 4:38 pm|
Tell me about this rule. Every time Florida would run the "jump pass" they would have lineman run blocking down the field. When Marshall threw the game tying TD, several lineman were down the field.
Do you get 5 yds or so of leeway? I honestly don't know and I'm curious. ...

| Tiger Rant|| Aren't we one loss away from where we thought we would be this year? - HoopyD on 11/11/13 at 7:46 am|
The defense suffered major losses from last year and everyone knew this wasn't a championship season. Everyone had at Georgia and at Alabama pencilled in as a loss. The only surprise has been Ole Miss; and some poor decisions by Mett had something to do with that.

Statistically, they are one of the best in the nation but they don't seem to be riddled with NFL talent like usual.

He's the guy that everyone loves to hate. He embraces his role as a villan and taunts the crowd. He's a personality in a SEC sport that deparately needs more attention and enthusiasm.
