re: Will America ever have any legitimate third parties? - TxTiger82
Third parties have always and will continue to play an important role at critical junctures in history. And who knows if we are on the verge of another such juncture? It is possible. For example, several third parties emerged in the 1850s (including the Know Nothings and the Free Soilers) -- larg...

re: I expect ratings for all news sources to drop - TxTiger82
Fox ratings went down. MSNBC went up. Fox is still the #1 news network but the gap has closed. Basically, Fox is a complete shitshow right now. Part of their problem is that conservatives are the ones who stopped believing the news. Liberals, meanwhile, have doubled down on the "journalistic veri...

re: Saban: It's virtually impossible to come up with a defensive scheme to stop RPOs - TxTiger82
Agreed. With a QB like Watson, you aren't going to stop the offense. Just try to limit its point production and outscore it with your own offense. Honestly, it has to be frustrating to a coach like Saban who has dedicated his career to defensive strategy and tactics. I know I would be frustrated....

re: Saban: It's virtually impossible to come up with a defensive scheme to stop RPOs - TxTiger82
Assuming their QB reads and executes every play correctly, he is 100% correct that there is no real tactical solution. Now ... that assumption is usually a bad one at the college level. That's why pressuring the QB as often as possible is a great idea at this level. You can pretty much count on c...
