Ashley, I am writing a book on 1908 football. The newspapers are from all over the country, mainly New Orleans, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis papers. Those four locations have the best sport writers in the business at that time in the south. The Nashville sport writer is Grantland Rice at that time...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Wish they would redo the old SEC one and have Florida as the Rats, Miss. St. as the Blacksmiths, and Auburn which was known as the Plainsmen even into the late 60's. Reading the very old newspapers from 1892-1920, you find out some nice information....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

NYCAuburn Wait, what, Auburn had a history of chow blocking long before 2007 with the staff it had in place. The hit on Dorsey was 100% to take him out.

re: Richard Lecounte throws Devonta Smith into a bench - tigger1 on 1/4/17 at 8:25 am
Lecounte had been burned bad by more than Smith. Lecounte then gets mad and does a childish move, but my question is how did the staff let it go that far? He is way off the field and is proven nothing with the play. Lecounte needs work, at Georgia I hope he gets the coaching he needs both...
