He really had a lot of injuries this year which would worry me if I was him going forward. He plays recklessly and I guess we all know that. Anyway, he sprained his ankle in the 1h vs Mizzou which is why he looked so slow. AFAIK, his legs were fine vs LSU but he played the last 2 games with a broken...

yeah it appears like the conferences have stepped in. CFA getting strong armed to take Duke by ACC but told them no fricking way if we can't have our SEC pick :lol:

I think the primary reason people are saying Iowa is because they thumped Neb the last game of season. But bowls are looking to make money and Iowa is boring as frick.
Neb would be entertaining. I also think we'll skull drag either so I don't really care much. ...

This ain't your daddy's Sun Belt. The SB has come of age and it's getting more attention. Just in the last few years Freeze, Malzahn, and Taggart have all been hired out of the SB. Petrino and Franchione both coach there now. Bryan Harsin may take the Boise job. Coaches are moving in and out of the ...

Yeah, that's what makes it odd to me. I'm sure he'd make that jump but most coaches don't go to a school thinking they are one and done. Maybe he's just hedging bets in case Pelini sticks around longer.
Supposedly Wyoming is paying him $1.2m and he was making $350k at NDSU. That seems to be a pr...

I'm sure you mean '13 since we only signed 19 in the '12 class. However, that's not what UT is doing.
We stayed within the SEC rules last year. Of the 19 we signed in '12, 3 were EEs that counted towards the '11 class making '12 truly a clas...

we have 2 backup QBs that have played a fair amount.
Matt Joeckel is a junior and OT Luke Joeckel's twin brother. He played a bit last year and he's the one that started against Rice. Kenny Hill is a true freshman who most see as the heir apparent. He played in 3-4 games this year. We also have ...
