re: "Arkansas not a win-at-all-cost program" -Long - profwilson on 9/12/17 at 10:38 am
[quote]win-at-all-cost program [/quote] I certainly understand Arkansas fans' frustration, but I think I understand what Long is trying to say here. The way I interpret it is that Arkansas doesn't want to go the route of Baylor or Ole Miss--programs that got really good really fast by, we now kn...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Week 3 CFB Betting Thread - profwilson on 9/11/17 at 1:52 pm
I like the following 4-team, 13-point teaser: Oklahoma State -1 Wisconsin -0.5 TCU -5.5 Notre Dame -0.5 It's hard to see where the loss could be in that. Of course, that's how they always get you with those 13-point teasers......Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]get Colin Kaepernicked?[/quote] If by "Colin Kaepernicked" you mean "unable to find employment because he has demonstrated himself, after an encouraging start, to be fairly bad at his job over the longer term," then yes, I think that will absolutely happen to Kevin Sumlin....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]he played a great game last night.[/quote] I agree, but he wasn't asked to show a lot last night. You can't really criticize 14 for 17. Now, if and when we see him start to hit receivers in stride with crisply thrown balls on crossing and slant routes, I'll REALLY be happy. He just wasn...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Canada was hired to beat Bama - profwilson on 9/3/17 at 9:25 am
[quote]Great OC from a powder-puff conference[/quote] This kind of thinking is just ignorant. The ACC last year, in which Canada was a finalist for the Assistant Coach of the Year Award, was hardly a "powder-puff conference." A team from that conference won the national championship, and their ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Ed Cunningham resigns as ESPN CFB analyst - profwilson on 8/30/17 at 1:44 pm
It is always admirable to see someone put his money where his mouth is, but people really need to step back and take a deep breath on this whole football/CTE thing. It's a real issue with some troubling implications, no doubt, but we still don't have good answers to some really important questions,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Phoenix or Nashville are an option - profwilson on 8/28/17 at 9:52 am
[quote]Arizona is hugely mormon.[/quote] If by "hugely" you mean about 6%, then I guess so. Of course, it is much closer to Utah than to Louisiana, so it would be a lot easier for BYU fans to get there than for LSU fans. But it makes sense on a lot of other dimensions.

I remember the 2007 game against Arkansas (day after Thanksgiving) being pretty cold--maybe around 50 with a cold wind blowing.
