You'll get every white skill position player cliche there is. Which is a shame, but sportscasters do it for everyone so I guess it doesn't matter too much.
Then again, I don't remember hearing a whole lot about Ryan Swope being a gym rat, so maybe there's hope....
| SEC Rant|| re: LSU fans: Any concerns about running a 2 QB system in the opener? - Jesterea on 8/20/14 at 8:19 am|
I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but Wisconsin plans on playing two quarterbacks as well during the game. If I'm LSU, you stack the box and use your superior talent on defense (and experience) to limit Melvin Gordon and make Joel Stave, or whoever else they have out there, throw the ball. Th...

So I haven't read the whole thread and don't know everything that's been said so far, and I respect the run that Auburn made. Even with all the breaks, it takes a few to go all the way, whether people want to admit this or not.
I dislike the idea that a run should have been even considered though...

It's weird. I do feel like Baseball is one sport where longevity does matter.
I need a pitcher for just one game, then give me Ryan.
I need a pitcher for one season, the I'll take Pedro in a heartbeat.
Tell me that I can choose one, but I've got to keep them for 20 years, frick it, Ryan in a...

| SEC Rant|| re: At what point in the season does Auburn get slapped back into reality? - Jesterea on 6/28/14 at 12:59 pm|
Well if anyone suddenly hits the crapper Auburn would be one of the least surprising. To give proof to this reasoning, we had the Year of Cam and then, not even two years later, we were drafting Auburn fans to our teams. It would surprise even less if this trend of peaks and valleys continued and th...

He's made what appears to be a couple of solid hires and a bad one in Trent Johnson. He's argued our case to the SEC vehemently for years now, but to no avail. That's just the facts of life, there's not a single AD who could have made our position better in regards to scheduling (Bama included). The...

To kind of step back a bit, I think it would take strong argument to say that Bo hasn't contributed to there current success. Has he made boneheaded moves? Yeah. But all managers do. That being said, the impact of a manager really does seem minimal at times....
