re: Why do people care so much about All Star starters - Bankshot
I'm going to be honest here. I don't care who starts the NBA All Star Game. I grew up watching this game and the only thing I remember about the various games is who the MVP was. But, I understand why folks are mad about Westbrook not being a starter, given the crazy stats he's putting up....

re: How many teams in history could lose their best player & still be the best team? - Bankshot
[quote]And Jamal Lewis went out for the season early with a torn ACL. [/quote] Very good point. Jamal Lewis probably would have been considered, at the very least, Tennessee's best offensive player at that time. ...

re: SEC Basketball: Is it the Big 3 compared to Big 6 of football? - Bankshot
[quote]A lot of SEC teams really got screwed by the 1 team per conference rule when Kentucky ran the conference. Really kept down some of the other teams NCAAT numbers.[/quote] No, we won the conference in those seasons and were not allowed to accept a bid to the NCAA's. We had to sneak out of t...

re: SEC Basketball: Is it the Big 3 compared to Big 6 of football? - Bankshot
[quote]State is a pretty bad program historically outside of their final four.[/quote] I wouldn't call us a historically bad program. We do have 6 regular season conference titles and 3 SEC tourney titles. We also had 2 or 3 NCAA appearances we weren't allowed to make in the late 50's/early 60'...

re: Make your case for having had a worse coach than Mike Dubose at your school - Bankshot
The worst head FB coach we have had in my lifetime is Rockey Felker. He's a great guy and actually recruited pretty well within Mississippi. But, he just couldn't win many SEC games. We won just 2 SEC games in his last 3 seasons. Jackie comes in right after in 1991 and with the very same players...

re: For the southern Patriots fans - Bankshot
[quote]I think that the 15 year old kid who's a patriots fan in Oklahoma City is just as much of a fan of the 45 year old guy in Boston who never misses a home game.[/quote] I understand a 15 year old that is a fan of the Patriots since they grew up watching them on TV so much in a state with no ...

re: NFL Combine "freaks" who were busts in the league - Bankshot
[quote]Ryan Leaf?[/quote] Well, I did say arguably. But, at least other teams gave Ryan Leaf opportunities to play and start. Smith was released from a couple of other NFL teams (after the Bengals) in training camp without playing a down for them in the regular season. That alone tells you the...

re: NFL Combine "freaks" who were busts in the league - Bankshot
[quote]Akili Smith is a bust.[/quote] I think he was arguably the biggest QB bust in NFL history given he was the 3rd pick overall, only played in 22 games with a total of 2,212 yards with 5 TD's, 13 INT's and a passer rating of 52.8....

[quote]uhhhh.....can anyone, anywhere name a single rocket scientist/engineer from that era. THEY ARE ALL UNSUNG HEROES.[/quote] Outside of the astronauts, most people probably only remember Gene Kranz, the flight director of the Apollo missions. But, it takes a whole lot of brilliant minds to m...
