    SEC Realignment Question

    At this point, I wouldn't fear Bama long term. Saban, while the goat, is starting to show signs of slowing down and I can't imagine any coach with a great resume and a legacy that is already built wanting to follow the goat. My guess is that in five yrs, Bama will still be good but won't be...

    Jumping ahead to the UGA game hope we repeat 2004 game

    UT will score on UGA and likely 3 or 4 TDs. The obstacle in pulling off the upset is similar to Bama and that will be sustaining drives. If UT only possesses the ball for 19 minutes vs UGA, the UT D will be beat to death by the middle of the 3rd quarter. Running an offensive play every 10...

    So if Pruitt is right and the NCAA crushes Tennessee

    LOIC...Lack of institutional control. If my memory serves me correctly, she mentioned several instances where the admin was made aware of misconduct, informed JP yet did nothing as the conduct continued.

    So if Pruitt is right and the NCAA crushes Tennessee

    First, I don't think JP gets paid even though my guess is Sexton probably didn't allow the contract language to make it as easy to fire with cause as some believe. Next, the admin at UT has been a train wreck for a little while now and reminds me a lot of UGA's admin during the 90s. It's like...

    Jeremy Pruitt… worst UT head coach ever?

    There were red flags, warning buzzers and testimonials to the fact that Pruitt was a H U G E gamble as a head coach. If Fulmer was connected to college football at all, he should have known that Pruitt was about halfway off his rocker and in no way possessed the skills necessary to be a CEO...

    Chalk up a win against Vanderbilt

    Yep, Vandy cancelled on UGA's Sr day once, played UT the next week for their Sr day and then cancelled on UGA's sr day for the second time the next week. Not sure but I have seen it was also an opportunity for that Sr class to leave with the most wins of any previous class. Having said that, I...

    NIL Problems

    There are always bumps in the road when change occurs. From what I see here, Patterson is trying to get his boosters to step up more than whining about the big boys poaching his players. Outside of that, I really don't see anything that allows for coaches to openly and blatantly tamper with...

    Change my mind - Sam Pittman

    It's way to early to judge Heupel at this point but Arky won 1 SEC game in 2017, 0 SEC games in 2018 and 0 SEC games in 2019. In yr 1 Pittman won 3 SEC games and had the Auburn game literally stolen from them. In his second game of yr 2, his team brutalized Texas. Two things can be true...

    Change my mind - Sam Pittman

    Imo Heupel is going to have better results at UT than Pittman will have at Arky BUT Arky got jobbed out of a win last yr at Auburn and he should have finished 4-6 with an all SEC schedule with one of if not the toughest schedule in the nation. From where Arky was on the day he was hired to...

    Honest thoughts on how this season should go

    I agree on Pitt and Mizzou. I have Pitt as a toss up and slight a underdog vs Mizzou. Otoh, loses to Vandy and SoCar would be a tough pill to swallow. If JH is what I think he is, UT will be double digit favorites over both. Imo, the floor is 5 and 8 wins wouldn't be shocking. My prediction...

    ESPN At It Again

    Chizik and Larry Coker both won MNCs. Winning a MNC is great for a legacy but that doesn't mean a coach that won one is necessarily greater than all coaches that didn't

    ESPN At It Again

    No doubt about it but it's one factor. Fulmer also got his shot at a MNC when Arky literally laid one on the ground when all they had to do was run out the clock. Richt got robbed out of a shot when OSU completed a miracle hail mary which meant OSU and Miami would finish undefeated to his one...

    Head to head match up would be my guess.

    Give me 5 reasons why we will be better this year

    As happens in a lot of bad chemistry situations, the team quit on Pruitt last yr. Fresh start. Better chemistry within the staff. Pruitt not only has a history of having players that are his guys that he protects at the expense of players that he has decided deserve the dog house, he has the...

    Just because

    Don't have to. The UT admin in the most mind boggling episode I have seen called a press conference to fillet the program in front of the cameras and eliminated almost every bit of wiggle room they could have used with the infractions committee. Saban and Dabo don't have to inform UT recruits...

    Reasons to think Coach Josh Heupel will move us forward

    He's a competent head coach at a minimum and he's not an immature moron. I don't know if JH will build a championship program or not but I would bet the farm that he becomes an 8 win per yr HC and takes the 3rd spot in the east at a minimum in a couple of yrs as long as he doesn't get hit with...

    SEC football coaches ranked

    In a reality where he is at KY and has turned a perennial competitor for the bottom spot in the east into a respectable program that has gone to 5 straight bowl games. If you would have hired Stoops at UT instead of Kiffin, I would bet you'd have been fighting for the top spot in the east in...

    SEC football coaches ranked

    Imo, Stoops is no lower than 5 and could be as high as 2. Mullen is middle of the pack and Heupel is an incomplete. I'd imagine he's going to be somewhere in the top 5 in a few yrs.

    Poll: Do you believe players are paid?

    I won't get into what Pruitt did or didn't do but there are ways to funnel money to players and prospects that skirt NCAA rules. The easiest way to do it is find someone with an existing relationship with a prospect and have them deliver the funds. You can literally make a 100K donation to a...
