re: What has caused Cam Robinson to drop so far? - Monticello on 4/27/17 at 10:12 pm
You have Bama fans unanimously telling you he is not a 1st round talent. That tells you everything. He's an average pass blocker and false start machine. He was never dominant or clutch. He was good, but not elite. The media hyped him more than Bama fans....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Escaping Poverty Requires Almost 20 Years With Nearly Nothing Going Wrong - Monticello on 4/27/17 at 9:49 pm
Graduate from high school. Get a job and be reliable at it. Don't have a baby before marriage. Don't go into debt to buy items that rapidly depreciate (other than a modest vehicle). That's all you have to do to succeed in the most prosperous nation in world history. You find me an American adult wh...

Kind of like how they have been noticing for a long time that Auburn is the place for a 4 or 5 star recruit to learn to be a high school position coach. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How is Cam Robinson not the first Tackle taken? - Monticello on 4/27/17 at 9:36 pm
Because he is a 3rd round talent, although he will probably go late first or early 2nd due to a historically poor OL class. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Bama players play in two more games than LSU every season. - Monticello on 4/27/17 at 9:18 pm
Or in Fournette's case, 3 more games. Over the course of a 3-4 year career, that takes a toll on you and can really wear you down. LSU players are much more fresh with limited postseason competition. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (15)
re: Sanders has lost it. "We have to start listening from the local level up" - Monticello on 4/23/17 at 5:18 pm
Sanders is right. The Democratic Party got too elite and became a party of civil rights icons, hollywood entertainers, and bored, activist billionaires. They cant just be the party of radical social change. They have to relate to middle America on an economic level. And conservatives better not ...

re: The current crop of SEC head coaches is atrocious - Monticello on 4/19/17 at 1:11 pm
If anything, the coaching talent in the "little 8" programs is the best it has ever been. The problem is how bad (or at least unproven) it is in the "Big 6" programs. And those two scenarios are a direct product of each other. If your lower tier schools like MSU, OM, UK, etc have good coaching a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Breaking Down Gruden’s 5 Takeaways on Joshua Dobbs - Monticello on 4/17/17 at 6:30 pm
Dak Prescott was an outstanding college player who elevated an otherwise below average team into a title contender, much like Cam Newton. Josh Dobbs was an average player who never led his talented team to anything close to respectability. I see no comparisons other than both are black. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)

re: Scariest plane experience - Monticello on 4/4/17 at 1:05 am
It wasn't all that scary but a flight to Reno I was on a few years ago got the landing gear stuck in the down position. I knew something was wrong after takeoff because we stayed at low altitude for what seemed like forever. Finally the pilot tells us the situation and that we would be landing short...

re: Dayton Hired Anthony Grant - Monticello on 3/30/17 at 11:22 am
Good for him. It should be a good fit. He's a solid recruiter, decent coach, and a great person. And there is plenty of upside for Dayton. If he does well, they will actually get to keep him since its his alma mater and big programs aren't going to be going after him due to his Alabama failures. He ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
