re: Serious question: why is GoT aired on Sundays and not Saturdays? - H-Town Tiger
[quote], this sounds logical, but Saturday night used to be the biggest night for CBS. I think the big 3 got cheap and just started programming for fewer days of the week. Had nothing to do with ratings. ABC used to kill with their Friday lineup. [/quote] when was this? ETA: also note ...

re: Serious question: why is GoT aired on Sundays and not Saturdays? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]What I'm asking is why the viewers don't have more of an appetite for long shows like this on a Saturday.[/quote] are you serious? :lol: Maybe you and your friends don't burn it down like you used to, but since most people are off on Sat and Sun, they can and often do other things, l...

re: The incompetence of the Saints front office is mind-boggling - H-Town Tiger
[quote]If they didnt give drew all the money maybe they would have more to use on free agents that are worth a crap[/quote] It amazes me that Saints fans continue to put the blame on Brees and his contract. Look at all the dead money they Saints have had on the cap in recent years like Jr Gallet...

re: Serious question: why is GoT aired on Sundays and not Saturdays? - H-Town Tiger
[quote] It's not the day of the week; we still meet up for dinner and drinks on Sundays, Mondays, or whenever. We just don't get together to watch a TV show.[/quote] But it is the day of the week. As hard as this is for the OP to grasp, the people who's job it is to program TV shows actually und...

re: Texans could make a move for Jimmy Garoppolo - H-Town Tiger
[quote] Prescott Wilson Dalton and Cousins off the top of my head[/quote] Fair enough. You know those off the top of your head because they all have done well. That's 20/20 hindsight. Osweiler and Weeden went ahead of Wilson and Cousins in that same draft. Dalton was the 35th pick, they could ...

re: Texans could make a move for Jimmy Garoppolo - H-Town Tiger
[quote]The reluctance to draft and develop a QB from this franchise is infuriating as a fan. [/quote] Out side of the 14 draft when they passed on Bridgewater and Carr, who have they really passed on that would be making a difference now? They've had the #1 pick 3 times and all 3 years the best ...

re: Texans could make a move for Jimmy Garoppolo - H-Town Tiger
[quote]I remember this guy named Joe Montana . . . and there was another guy named Peyton Manning . . . and it seems like a guy named Brett Farve . . . . [/quote] Montana was literally out for 2 years and his replacement won the freaking league MVP, that's why he was available. Manning was out...

re: Texans could make a move for Jimmy Garoppolo - H-Town Tiger
[quote]Did the Texans learn nothing already going after a backup with a small sample size?[/quote] Do you realize good starters aren't available? I mean I'm certain even Rick Smith would take Rodgers or Brady over Osweiler. You either have to draft a guy or sign a back up, both options are thro...

re: Watson Era Ends So Does Clemson? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]Probably because of the QB they had, doesn't mean they can't or won't adapt. Bama ran a different offense with Hurts than they did with AJ McCarron, so why can't Clemson adapt? And Bama took a very limited QB, masked him all year and was :01 away from a title, so.[/quote] Is this the Les M...

re: Watson Era Ends So Does Clemson? - H-Town Tiger
[quote] Not sure why you think reverting back to 2 or so losses a year is such an insult. [/quote] I don't, but i was just responding to the point about VY, especially in comparison to the other guys/teams you mentioned. Auburn was 8-5 before Cam, then went 8-5, 3-9 that's a drop off imo. Flori...

re: Watson Era Ends So Does Clemson? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]yeah, exactly. After Vince they lost 3 games; drubbed by 3 touchdowns to OSU, to a less talented kansas state, and to aTm. The following year lost by 3 touchdowns to kansas state, to oklahoma, and again to aTm.[/quote] The OSU game was the 2nd game of the year, 24-7 is not my idea of a "...

[quote]Look at how teams like Texas, fared after losing Young, [/quote] The year after VY Texas had 1 loss to #1 Ohio State before McCoy got hurt and they lost to KSU and A&M. The next year 07, they were like 10-3, the next year they were #3 and arguably got shafted out of the BCSCG and the next...

re: Watson Era Ends So Does Clemson? - H-Town Tiger
This thread shows one of the bad things about CFB imo, people CAN NOT STAND IT. When a non traditional power emerges and can't wait to tear them down. Dabo is dependent on his coordinators? Think Bobby Bowden wasn't? All coaches need good assistants to win. That doesn't mean the current guys ar...

re: Is football coach one of the least competitive job markets out there? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]I find football coaching unique because I happen to think there is a huge market of people who would be better than the current crop they choose from.[/quote] This has to rank as one of the silliest takes I've read on this board :lol:...

re: Is football coach one of the least competitive job markets out there? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]Steve Spurrier himself said the only reason he was able to last in coaching is because he knew the right people. He said he never would have gotten into coaching if one of his former coaches at Florida hadn't reached out to him about the job. Same with Saban. He said coaching never crossed hi...

re: Does the heisman trophy need to be given out after all bowls?? - H-Town Tiger
Nope. Unless you just want it to go to the MVP of the Championship game or some other guy that has a big Bowl. We could just create another award for that. I don't get why people don't like Regular season awards. If you want to reform something, get better voters or try and train them not to be...
