Re: Can We Finally Win?

You have been sorely missed. I think your call is correct.

Re: Gloom, Despair and Agony......

Games are seldom won or lost on the final plays but the linebacker threw the Oklahoma receiver into the end zone. And for some reason, we don't want to call holding on the last play which was clear from my vantage point 2500 miles away looking at my 13" Hoffman Green Screen B/W TV interference....

Les Miles
Head Coach Kansas :shock:


I he wanted to coach again so badly, he could have waited four weeks and there will be all kinds of jobs. If he has two games of success he will be gone quicker than a hobo's ham sandwich.

Re: Ruminating Week 11

Derek that is a point that I believe more than the matchups. Schools try and line up a good school years in advance. The moment of truth comes and the "good" school is not doing so well and the school that made the deal if it is a "name" school suffers zip. If it is a school of a...

Boise State v New Mexico

This is a typical game where a fairly good ball club plays against a not so good team. Nothing is learned except the answer to this question:

Can two football announcers talk non-stop for four quarters and a myriad of timeouts, non-stop and say nothing? Yes, the can.

Re: Ruminating Week 11

That is the whole point. The Central Committee's guideline has a subjective issue. They can choose whomever they want. Assume they are genuine...big assumption...they still can say, what matchups make the best game. They have a water cooler in the room although the Bolsheviks fill it with Vodka. I d...

Hopeful Bowls

Here is one bowl match-up I would like to see and it may happen if things don't change. Washington State v Ohio State. Now I know this is zip for Ohio State - Other than if you aren't in the National Supercilious Playoff, going to the Rose Bowl is the next best thing. And pitting the Big Ten v Pac 1...

Re: So, What the Hell......

It is not a Hillbilly thing. Personal responsibility is essential to a civilized community. Seems to me that Meyer did not vet or ignored the previous behavior and never should have hired this guy. After seems, he took immediate action and fired him. I also think the news is such you will never know...

Re: So, What the Hell......

Coaches have to be responsible for behavior. I can tell you that is half the recruiting pitch to most parents, we will protect your child, etc. Decent assistants help.

Re: So, What the Hell......

This is the difference. Commanders are in charge of everything. Coaches are not, nor are CEO's There are boards of directors, Regents, etc. The Eunuchs should be held responsible for all that happens or fails to happen. There’s a bunch in Stillwater looking for someone to hang-up by their testicles...

Re: So, What the Hell......

I understand better. In the military, a commander is responsible for everything that happens and doesn't happen. Seems like a good idea to apply to all CEO's head coaches etc. But it isn't. I can't hold Meyer for things that happen when he can't control it. (Is it the coaches responsibility to know ...

Re: So, What the Hell......

I certainly don't understand all of what happened. If the issue is the reporter said Smith used a racial slur at practice and Urban and the school deny it...then give me a break. Not as much as most of you, but I have been on the sidelines, locker rooms etc for nigh unto 60 years. I haven't heard it...

Re: Group of Five

I saw junior grow up. From a little kid through to playing legion ball in Cincinnati. I never really met him but always rooted for him throughout his career. I believe him to be the best player in his era - including Bonds, McGuire, Sosa and all the other Steroid boys. I got into a friendly argumen...

Re: Group of Five

I just think they should play the conference champion from every conference. Does that ensure you get the best teams? No. Who cares. You probably don’t get the best teams now. Just who we believe are the best teams. Or the committee believes are the best teams. It is really impossible to have a tru...
