    Bernard King's first college game. Who remembers? Where were you?

    Thanks for posting this. I was there too. What a great game and team. The first game I saw Bernard play as I recall was his first SEC game vs. Auburn. Auburn had a highly ranked freshman named Mike Mitchell who had more publicity than King. King ate Mitchell up and stole the show easily as...

    Predictions of Leach's failure at MSU for posterity...

    SEC West will decapitate the old Pirate. Leach will need plenty of quarterbacks to survive the season. Pass happy lose time of possession equals many 56 -33 type games that will be entertaining and give experience to the Bama and LSU scout teams.

    The Official Tennessee vs. South Carolina Game Thread, 1:00 PM ET, SEC Network

    I wont tell my buddy that some of you boys are speaking ill of his hoops knowledge. He is a Vol football season tix holder and has ETSU basketball season tix. He would obviously be deeply hurt by some of these comments. Let's all agree to ignore the limitations of the Orange squad this year...

    Watched game with an etsu season ticket holder. he said the Only vol who might be in Steve Forbes’ 2 deep rotation is Fulky. Painful to watch ineptitude and horrific shooting. James and Vescovi must take more shots. Nice win but Barnes sure has a challenge making the nit with Bowden...

    Gatorade bath

    That was simply a successful Gator Bowl for both teams with a wildly exciting finish. I saw Indiana play Penn State and they played extremely well. After losing their starting qb and star running back Hoosiers were still tough. Anyway Jacksonville has to be thrilled with attendance and both...

    Vescovi clip

    Maravich was a great player but it was similar to watching Allan Houston scoring a ton of points with his dad as coach. LSU was not that good with Pistol Pete but he was fun to watch. Mears did pretty well shut him down or at least keep him to around 20 points rather than 40. Mears for the...

    Vols to #21

    Vols are not a top 25 team. They are maybe the 3rd or 4th best team in Tennessee and ETSU would wear them out as could others on a given night. Next season the talent infusion gives them a chance but unless James develops really quickly into a major scorer - a winning season and NIT appearance...

    Don’t freak out.

    This is the team most of us expected to see. Pons and the rest are extremely limited offensively and not capable of transitioning to scorers. Barnes is looking at a significant rebuilding project and this is why he sought the UCLA job. It is frustrating because Steve Forbes has depth at...

    Will Pittman Poach Chaney?

    Arkansas has reportedly stopped paying Bret Bielema’s buyout Arkansas did stop paying Bielema but it looks like it may generate a court case. This could form a precedent for Butch Jones who is more or less a volunteer at Alabama. I have a hard time believing Arkansas can walk away from...

    Will Pittman Poach Chaney?

    Chaney has a terrific contract with UT. I doubt Arkansas can try to match it as they are paying off Morris and his staff and may be still paying Bielema. Sam Pittman has his work cut out for him. He sort of worked for Chaney- not sure Chaney would want to work for Sam.

    Sam Pittman to Arkansas? (Merged)

    If true, Georgia takes another offensive hit. They could do a lot worse than Sam.

    Why Didn't FSU Go To The SEC

    ACC thought they had the big guns with Florida universities Miami and FSU which were annual powerhouses. Neither sustained their success and it is now Clemson and the poor cousins. You just never know how the worm turns. Alabama may be last in the SEC west in a few years with Orgeron and...

    RIP New Redshirt Rule

    Either keep this rule in place or give 10 more scholarships so coaches can build a roster. Injuries, etc. can really hurt a team and tough decisions must be made to allow players to play a few quarters or games but it costs a year of eligibility. Leave it like it is as it benefits both...
