[quote]Do you know the career expectancy of the NFL? [/quote]
It's very short, which is why it's pretty important to get in and start making money as early as you can, especially when you're healthy and your stock isn't likely to go up, but can definitely go down if you get seriously injured.

He's going to have South Carolina finishing in the top 10 for the third year in a row. It will be their 4th top 25 finish in a row, for a program that only had 5 top 25 finishes in their history before he arrived. He's doubled the programs bowl victory count. He's on pace for his third 11 win sea...

Auburn has certainly had some lucky breaks, but it seems weird to see LSU fans diminish a team getting lucky or eeking out really close wins given that LSU has probably the luckiest NCG appearance ever and we certainly struggle with lesser teams on a regular basis.
Does anyone really thing that...

Auburn doesn't run the triple option. They aren't fricking Navy. They run a number of different option looks along with straightforward between the tackles run plays, play action passing, and just about everything else.
It's really stupid that people thing that reading a defender out of a play...

This makes no sense. People who want Miles gone (not saying I'm one of them) will point to Malzahn slaying the dragon and going to the SECCG in his first year as a head coach as a perfect example of what a coaching change can do for a program with loads of talent that is underachieving.

He's been pretty good, but the flip side of this is that when we lose everyone is quick to blame a lack of talent instead of the coaching. Alabama is the only in the country where there is a real serious talent gap, and that's because they f...

Our linebackers can't tackle or cover. It's not the only problem with the defense, but it's definitely a problem. Part of the reason that we got shredded by Bama in the running game is that our linebackers couldn't plug the gap even if they found the right one because they just got run over. The ...

Ole Miss is not a good team this year. They are an average team. They beat a Texas team that, the the week before, had lost to a very average BYU in the most humiliating way possible. The Texas defense, to start the season, could not stop the run at all. After the Ole Miss loss they fired their ...
