It's a different world. In 1977 every game wasn't in national TV and they didn't have miles in student section. There's no more "good ole boy" free passes in society. Everyone is held accountable and judged pretty harshly....

OBJ was always going to blow everyone away and Landry would be underwhelming. However, I think Jarvis makes it to his third contract. Odell will end up going higher and will either be a flash in the pan or an all-pro. He's incredibly gifted but inconsistent at catching the football....

Title IX is the issue. If we could field more collegiate soccer teams I think it would increase the popularity of HS soccer in America. Then college soccer could be used like college basketball/baseball. Really good players could just go to the draft and others could continue to develop in college.

Some here will tell you to sear on the stove and then put in the oven. I recomend puting you cast iron in the oven at 500 and leaving it in while the oven preheats. Pull it out and throw your seasoned steak on with a little bit of oil. Depending on thickness, pull it out in 4-6 mins, flip and then c...

This article is fantastic. If we could get 20 kids with close to this type of character and ability year-in and year-out we'd be the best program in college football.
I have great admiration for any 18 kid who can see through the short term adulation of the recruiting process, make a firm adult d...

But he's also a closet liberal. He and his friends have a lot of preconceived notions about minorities and the underp...

I guess nobody else has experienced this but I think I'm done with the career mode. Two matches in a row I ended with 8.0+ ratings only to have my overall season ratings fall. I look back at my rating from the last match and both times it changes to a 3.5.
That's fricking retarded. I guess I'll ju...

I worked with Roussel at Memphis. That guy failed at being a football coach and then made up his own website to pretend he was an insider.
He doesn't know his arse from a hole the ground, much less if Nick Saban is or is not going to Texas.
