I can't see that name and not think of the old Bob Odom jingle he'd pulled out every four years when he ran for re-election as Commissioner of Agriculture. It was just his name sung four times....

I'm not really sure of the point of this. If you applied this logic to any of the great coaches in the game today, it would amount to the same type of numbers. Any coach only gets so many opportunities per year against good competition. Les wins more of these than he loses on a year-in year-out b...

D: Tashawn Bower - has 2 years in Chavis' system and will most likely start next year with Rasco and Hunter likely gone.
O: Brumfield or Clapp - one or both will be starting next year on the O line and I think both will be special. I was going to say Pocic but he's started most of the year any...

I've been partial to the West Virginia football team since Rich Rod and Pat White was there. I've continued to sort of follow them since that time. I was pulling for Miss. State this year (not in our game, obviously)....
| SEC Rant|| re: UAB/LSU have nothing on the conspiracies out of Madison and Waco - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/9/14 at 12:12 pm|
Pretty knowledgeable people would know that TCU and Baylor would get stomped by Alabama, Miss. St., Ole Miss, Auburn and LSU (and would probably get beat by Texas A&M and Arkansas). Didn't Texas Tech miss getting to OT with Baylor by a missed 2 pt. conversion? Didn't Arkansas absolutely destroy Te...

I can't believe anyone is questioning what he has done at C State. Whether that translates to him being a successful HC at a big time program is another matter, but what he has done with the Rams is awesome. Are you actually saying that losing to Boise and Air Force are bad losses for them? Wrong...

| Coaching Changes|| How would Les do at Michigan? - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/2/14 at 3:30 pm|
Since everything is mere speculation at this point, I thought it would be an interesting mental exercise to consider Les taking the Michigan job. I think he could have them back to competing for a Big 10 title within 2 to 3 years. He would finally give Urban Meyer some competition in Ohio for recr...
| SEC Rant|| re: Missouri - one SEC win vs. team with winning conference record - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/1/14 at 9:52 am|
I think the Mizzou fans facts about Bama's record made the OP go into hiding. When I saw the title, I was thinking since Auburn and LSU finished 4-4 that Bama probably didn't have many more than that. The fact is that in any given year there will most likely be no more than 3 teams per division wi...

[quote]giving the ball to hill on 2nd and 3rd and 1 vs. Clemsom[/quote]
I've always had a bit of a problem with this analysis for a couple of reasons. First, we were having trouble running the ball on third and short in that game as I recall. I think we failed twice to convert on 3rd and 1 or 2...

Oh, also, since he brings it up, he was pretty average against all three opponents, especially compared to his counterparts in those games, if he's going to bring this up. In those three games, he had 201 yards on 50 carries, for an average of 4.0 ypc. His counterparts, Gurley and Marshall for UGA...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is Jeremy Hill a negatiger? - Tigerpaul1969 on 11/25/14 at 10:45 am|
I can explain it to him. Our defense couldn't stop UGA for most of the game, then in the 4th quarter we got a huge stop, and OBJ dropped a punt and handed them a free TD that was the difference in the game.
Against Ole Miss, Mett threw three first half INTs that we could never recover from.

I can't think of a year where one college team produced rookie NFL starters at QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs and a starter on the O line. Can anyone think of something comparable? Maybe one of those great Miami teams or a Husker team that produced 4 O linemen? The year Carson Palmer was picked at USC? ...

It's funny to see where these threads go after a couple of hours.
