re: Stephen A. Smith suspended for a week - TheRookbird
I actually really like Stephen A. the journalist. I think his viewpoints on the big issues are more spot on than any other ESPN personality. I even enjoyed Quite Frankly. That being said, I hate First Take. I hate the concept of two guys arguing back and forth and calling that a show. I als...

[quote]It is a shite ton more. I would imagine it would be around $7 million total compared to the $3-4 we would get from a home game [/quote] 7 is too much. It will probably end up being around 5 to 6 for both (the Texas Kickoff Classic paid around 2.5 million to both schools last year). The...

[quote]Rook, u state LSU isnt getting paid and the exposure is overrated. Why is LSU and Wisconsin doing this series then, in your opinion. [/quote] LSU isn't making as much off of this game as they would off a home game. They will be making more off of the 2 neutral site games combined than...

[quote]We will gain many new fans from this game, if we play well, even more. [/quote] That's highly debatable. With so may games on TV you're not getting some huge exposure increase due to playing a game in a geographic area. This whole concept is completely overblown, IMO. We will also att...

re: Andre Ellington - TheRookbird
The thought process is that he averaged 5.5 yards per carry last year. He also was very good in the passing game where he averaged almost 10 yards a catch. He was only on the field for 40% of the snaps last year and only received under 30% of the carries. Without Mendenhall, you expect those nu...
