re: I'll give Sumlin this, he's changed up his recruiting strategy - finestfirst79
[quote]Yes I know, but it seems like no matter who the AD we've been doing dumb shite for nearly two decades. I'm reserving optimism until further proof of competence.[/quote] Guessing is fine, as long as you acknowledge to yourself that you're guessing....

re: Worst Coaches in the SEC - finestfirst79
[quote]1. Jim McElwain UF [/quote] Maybe you can deliver the bad news at his 2nd straight SECCG. [quote]3. Kevin Sumlin A&M [/quote] Reasonable people (I'm not one) predicted 8-4 or 9-3 at best. So no. Except DAMN, MSU? Really? [quote]4. Barry Odom Missouri or Coach Orgeron LSU [/quote] ...

[quote]Mississippi State. That's the game in which Sumlin learned it was ok to lose. [/quote] I rarely agree with the Major, but I do on this one. The obvious answer would be Alabama, but who are we kidding? Losing, hell not just losing, but getting butts kicked by the last place team in the SECW...

re: ESPN taking a big subscriber hit lately ... - finestfirst79
[quote]Ditch that audience in favor of the audience that made them what they are and they'll start to get viewers back.[/quote] No, they will not. The viewers who have dropped ESPN have dropped cable service because a) their cable service was expensive relative to alternatives and b) they never g...

re: ESPN taking a big subscriber hit lately ... - finestfirst79
[quote]All of that bull shite rant and you still don't get it - you're still too fricking ignorant to understand. [/quote] I'm pretty sure you have this backwards. There's a lot not to like about ESPN (and as another pointed out, MTV). But that isn't why ESPN or MTV are losing subscribers. It really...

[quote]Problem is that ESPN is too busy covering that Krapernick is on his knees all of the time.[/quote] There's a lot to not like about ESPN, and this is one of those things. But none of that has anything to do with them losing cable subscribers. They're losing cable subscribers at [b]exactly[/...

re: ESPN taking a big subscriber hit lately ... - finestfirst79
[quote]That's been explained to you several times.[/quote] It apparently hasn't been explained well enough because I don't get it, either. I (and every other subscriber to my cable service) gets the 8 ESPN channels I mentioned earlier. ESPN U and ESPN News are in a higher tier. There are many ...

[quote]I need someone to explain the Bruce Jenner thing. I understand it was incredibly stupid. But what I don't understand is why everyone is so upset about it. Why did anyone even watch it? The ESPYs are the dumbest idea in the entire world! Why in the holy hell do we need an awards show for sport...

[quote]Exactly :cheers:[/quote] Apples and pomegranates. If you have basic cable, you have MTV. Same as you have half a dozen ESPN channels. You may not LIKE what you see on MTV these days and wish the talking heads on ESPN would STFU, but if you have cable you still get those channels....

re: ESPN taking a big subscriber hit lately ... - finestfirst79
[quote]This has very little to do with people dropping just ESPN (it is a "basic" cable channel in most places) and more to do with the fact that people are getting rid of cable service completely.[/quote] Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Our "standard" package includes ESPN, ESPN 2, and SEC Netwo...

re: SEC ESPN Strength of Record Standings - finestfirst79
I don't get it. Alabama is the only undefeated team in the Power 5. I'd think that given your explanation of the scores that every other team would score 0, unless we really believe Alabama's schedule has been weak... which is ridiculous....

re: How much vacation do you get? - finestfirst79
I'm surprised to see so many in the public sector comparable to the federal government, where I've always thought I've been pampered. I get 26 days/year, can carry over 30 days into the next calendar year....
