| Tiger Rant|| re: Is not naming a starter hurting both QB's? - atltiger6487 on 8/20/14 at 1:15 pm|
it does concern me a bit, since the coaches have seen Jennings for over a year and have seen Harris since spring practice.
I'm a big believer that the QB is the leader, and I do believe it helps when the rest of the team knows who that leader is as early as possible. Then the offense can devel...

depends on how you define "rivalry." To me, it means more than just two good teams that play a lot of good, close games. It's the visceral, emotional game that we circle on the calendar every year. It helps if both teams are in the same state, or border states, so they personally know a lot of pl...

You've got to be realistic. We're breaking in a new QB, lost our two stud WRs and RB, and lost both starting DTs. Plus a very tough schedule.
10-2 would be a great result for us....

easy answer - emotional letdown.
We've got a few big emotional games during the season that we get up for. Unfortunately, you just can't stay at maximum emotional intensity for all 12 games. There are ebbs and flows throughout the year. We feel it too as fans.
Ole Miss and Arky just aren'...
