Number 34 has passed within 20 yards of me many times. He running and me, along with a lot of others, on the sideline.
He is by far the best offensive college player I have ever seen in person, and it's between he and OJ on television.
Very approachable and friendly. I liked him.
Can't say ...

Frankly, I think he needed the stops he has made. At South Carolina he was a good, not great, DC. There was even this bit of doggerel: "Third and long, Charlie Strong." It stemmed from two standout losses, one to Tennessee in 2000 and another to Clemson the same year.
What he was great at was r...

I was in the Navy when the Bear had just returned......Most of us Southern boys--Tennessee natives excepted--pulled for Bama when they began beating those Yankee schools pretty regularly.
Trammel is one of my five or six favorites of all time, any team.....He personified "team."
| SEC Rant|| re: Gene Jelks.. Greatest Tide player ever? - CocknDawg on 1/14/14 at 4:31 pm|
Pat Trammel.....He put the Tide on his back and brought them back to respectability.

Leroy Jordan.....I could go on and on. ...

I really like the 2-deep rotations, to say nothing of the overall offense.

Gus is the real deal. I have been watching football a long time, and I absolutely love the Auburn offense. I think it will take other teams at least three years to catch up. God help the West if he finds a real dual-threat quarterback.
