re: Can someone explain to me why our youth system is bad? - DoreonthePlains
[quote]And if you think our USMNT is loaded with athletes on par with NFL players then that's insane.[/quote] How many NFL players have the endurance to play a full match? The difference in our best soccer players athletically and similarly sized athletes in other sports is [i]mostly[/i] down t...

re: Alabama and the nuclear option? - DoreonthePlains
I disagree that Bama broke us. The team was physically ground into fine paste by Alabama which led to struggles against Florida. UGA basically repeated the Bama blueprint and combining those three tough games have really worn the defense down since we aren't as deep as we thought. Then you get th...

re: I hope bye week doesn’t run the ball or rush the passer. - DoreonthePlains
Defending the run is a real issue. Pass blocking has, so far, been a one-game issue. Shurmur had only been sacked 3 times going into the game....

re: Hopefully that's the last of Altidore - DoreonthePlains
[quote]Yes, he's one of the best our team has had at that position for the last decade, but that doesn't mean he is an outstanding player in the soccer world as a whole. We need better players and to stop using records set by slightly above average soccer players as some sort of way to accept an ave...

re: Why is Alabama considered the best job in the SEC? - DoreonthePlains
LSU's head coach directly preceding Saban (interim doesn't count) was a guy hired after going 19-25 (9-22 SEC) after Vanderbilt. Hiring Gerry DiNardo really showed the clout LSU had in college football prior to Saban. :bow:...

re: How would your fanbase act on the rant if your program was where Bama is? - DoreonthePlains
I can't even imagine it. I'm sure there would be a lot of bandwagon jumpers, so we'd probably pick up some real bottom of the barrel types. Honestly, it would probably be atrocious because the bandwagon would outweigh the real (dedicated, not just alumni) fans even more ridiculously than normal. Als...

re: Due to a loophole, tOfficial Life Championship Belt is back in possession of VOLS - DoreonthePlains
There's a problem with the SB Nation rules. Tennessee was ranked at the time of the "Champions of Life" declaration. The rule shouldn't be that a team is unranked but should be something like "not ranked in top 15" or something....

re: Looking forward to the game Saturday - DoreonthePlains
So it might be a little more aggressive on the back end against Fromm without quite the same fear of the deep ball and to help in run support, but that's not a big enough difference to really change much. ...

re: Looking forward to the game Saturday - DoreonthePlains
[quote]He's not a "dual threat", he's similar to Aaron Murray in that if things do break down he is agile enough to pick up a few yards.[/quote] That's what I was thinking. The two of them have pretty similar skill-sets, so I'm not sure it changes the gameplan much either way. Is Fromm's arm qu...
