  1. Unbelievable, especially given the circumstances. Saban even admitted in a sideline interview that he originally intended to take him out for that series, but they decided at the last moment to leave him in so he could "practice the 2-minute drill."

    College Basketball: 2019 Bracket Edition

    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch. Since Penny was the named booster in the allegation, does this mean the University has to disassociate from him now?
  3. You and me both, if for no other reason so that Coach O can win a natty, thus proving that we currently exist in the unlikeliest of timelines.
  4. Vanderbilt might be the worst SEC team in my lifetime. So much for Derek Mason.

    NFL 2019: After A Quarter, Are They Who We Thought They Were?

    Not only was Jay Gruden fired, but found out at a 5:00 am in-person meeting this morning at the team facility. Who the fuck does that?
  6. A lot of us are in that same boat. I'm doubful that either Bama or Clemson is the best team this year. Clemson is too inconsistent offensively, and Bama has no depth on defense, which is something I never thought I'd say about a Nick Saban team. I think Auburn and LSU both stand a pretty good chance of beating them in the regular season.

    So here's a story on the Kansas NOA. Only three Level 1 violations. Not bad! Although, Lack of Institution Control means that Self will probably get a show cause.

    NFL 2019: Wake Belichick Up, When September Ends...

    I agree. I thought he should've retired a few years ago but at least now he can fade out of the limelight with a little dignity intact.

    NFL 2019: Wake Belichick Up, When September Ends...

    As a 20+ year supporter of Eli Manning through all his ups and downs, I couldn't be happier about this. I'm glad he gets to finish his career mentoring the next generation off the field instead of struggling to look competent on it. Jones' success makes the Giants future look a lot brighter too - there are real weapons there. My boy Evan Engram was a monster yesterday.
  10. Former Texas and Ole Miss QB Jevan Snead died over the weekend at age 32. While news outlets aren't reporting it yet, numerous sources are saying that he took his own life. What a horrible tragedy.

    Video Games: Gears of Borderlands

    I'm having fun just leveling again. Questing in places like Ashenvale, Stonetalon etc. that I'd frankly almost forgot existed in the era of leveling thru dungeon finder. The journey was always more fun to me than the destination, so vanilla is the perfect iteration of the game for me - an epic journey with a great sense of exploration, discovery, and just the right level of challenge. To your point on the VC group - I've found the level of cooperation and helpfulness among the playerbase to be at an all-time high in Classic. Who knows how long that will last, but it's refreshing to say the least.

    Same. Vanilla WoW really is digital crack.

    NFL 2019 Preseason: Hard Knockin on Gruden's Door

    Mississippi kid who was passed over by virtually every FBS program (including all the in-state schools, naturally) coming out of HS, now NFL starting QB with one of the best debuts of all time. The charm of football is in the absurd unlikelihood of stories like this.
  14. Tennessee going down big to Georgia St at home, and just like that Jeremy Pruitt's coaching seat self-immolates. South Carolina gave up a big second half comeback to the fightin' Mack Browns too, and are on the verge of losing. So far the non-Bama SEC is looking even worse than predicted.
  15. It's the most wonderful time of the year! Man I hope we win this game. Memphis is the one team we play regularly that I least enjoy losing to (for obvious reasons) so I really hope all these youngsters show up today. ETA: on to basketball season then
