| Coaching Changes|| Jimmy Sexton's Big Play? - bdskelton on 12/12/13 at 5:46 pm|
I know it's been discussed already that this whole Saban/Texas ordeal is likely Sexton making a play for bigger money. I just wanted to expound on that a little bit because this coaching change-over has reached astronimical levels compared to most. I don't think that's by accident.
We all know ...

The answer is yes Mack is. There has been negativity around Mack basically since the 2010 season, and whether it's Saban already locked up or shooting for the stars with a little uncertainty elsewhere, Mack was done for....

I think there is some merit to this actualy. Saban raises the bar for competition in the state, amd Auburn won't allow mediocrity to last too long with whats going on in Tuscaloosa. Thats why Tubbs and Chizik were both let go after down years (albeit disastrous ones). I think Auburn has found th...

Forgive me if this has already been discussed, but does michigan state go to the Rose Bowl no matter what happens on Saturday? I dont buy them going all the way to #2 in the polls with a win, so it seems lile whether they are number in the Big10 or runner up to undefeated Ohio State, they will end ...

Foster had just shanked one from around the same range. Give him another shot and he does the same thing, and people would be saying exactly the opposite: "Running game was going well, why not pick up the easy first down on 4th and short? Why would you put the game on the foot of someone who was ...
| SEC Rant|| re: It is very apparent to me... - bdskelton on 12/2/13 at 9:00 pm|
Agree completely. I'm glad you didn't state any specific fanbases (ahem, LSU) because they would just take it as obsession or some shite. But by and large I've seen sensible threads from Bama fans, and a bunch of threads claiming Bama is having some ultra meltdown....
| SEC Rant|| Some perspective on Saban's coaching decisions - bdskelton on 12/2/13 at 8:53 pm|
Let me start off by saying I pretty much agreed with every decision Saban made on Saturday:
(1) I agreed with going for it on 4th down and short because of the way field goals were going all night.
(2) I agreed with kicking a field goal at the end of the game. I didn't like our chances in o...

Who cares? Gameday had gotten pretty stale the past few years anyways, so at least they are trying new things this year and mixing it up. Not just with Finebaum, but with the Quarterback coach they bring on, crazier Guest Pick segments (Bill F'n Murray!), etc.
I like crazy Corso; and Pollack wh...

Season 4 was amazing, I agree. Definitely my favorite of the series. No season 5 isn't up to the same level; I put it on par with season 2. Many people are turned off by McNulty's outlandish scheme (not saying, spoilers and such) in S5, but I found the best thing to do is just suspend disbelief ...

I'm jut not convinced that the same big games are not for both systems. What exclusives are there?

I've been a Playstation loyalist for 3 generations, and when both of the next-generation consoles were announced PS4 was a slam dunk win. However, as time has gone on and Microsoft has backtracked on the used games, etc, I'm failing to see what advantages the PS4 has at this point.
