I'm just going to watch Juwan Howard play for the Heat and reminisce about the early 90s.

Hey! It's nice down here. We keep having to put the AC on because it's hot.

Dammit anyways. All this talk about Jasper Howard is making me tear up a bit.

I'm rooting for UConn, because clearly I have no interest in rooting for teams who might win things.

Alabama 49, Michigan State 7.
I mean, we played the games. It wasn't like we didn't have a chance to win them with 60:00 on the clock. I'd say we deserve whatever they say about us.

What else was the kid going to say?
I hope that if we have a new coach, we at least hire someone with the common sense to keep around this year's Big Ten Offensive POY and build his offense around him. I'd wonder about anyone who didn't.

Most likely. Probably will fool around with not getting tickets for a while.
J'ville may not be so warm that time of year. Brrr.

but last night, sometime before halftime, my fiancé yelled "John Brantley, you suck!" at the TV and then fell silent for the rest of the game.
Yeah, they're not taking it well.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Florida||
I think most of the Gators fans I know (I live in SoFL; I know a lot) expected a season that wasn't as spectacular as the ones they've previously under Meyer, but I don't think they expected more than three losses. They have two more tough games to go, too - I suppose it's possible that they could host The Horror: Swamp Edition, and FSU actually has a better record than UF right now.
Why? Addazio's playcalling isn't great; as the announcers noted, some of their more talented players were just hanging out on the sidelines for most of the game, like Demps and Rainey. Brantley isn't that great, and he doesn't fit the system that the veterans are used to running besides. If Burton had some kind of spark, like he did in that one game earlier this year, Meyer is certainly canny enough to play him, but I'm pretty sure that he's not the answer this season, at least not the way Tebow was during his freshman season.
I also like to think that their hold on recruiting isn't as good as it once was, but I think that's a pipe dream. The state, in particular the south, is so talent-rich that we can snap up some of the players, but there are lots more to go around for UF and FSU and UM, even if the latter two aren't the giants they used to be.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Re: kicking||
At this point, I'm not sure why they don't at least let Hagerup try a kick or two. In the beginning of the season, he was obviously jittery and it was a little much to ask, but he's handling punts quite well now, as well as kickoffs, and I know he kicked in HS ... I mean, I don't think it would make our kicking game any worse to try it.

Yeah, I'm also from Sconnie, and I have also heard that rumor.

I think it was pretty obvious (at least to me) that Carr wasn't going to be JoePa. The years leading up to 2007, there seemed to be indications that he didn't plan on staying the head coach of Michigan forever.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Heartbreaking.||
May he rest in peace.

You forgot the part where the team is divided in half and Alabama runs one half (with help from their SEC West allies Arkansas and Auburn) and Florida runs the other half.

If Suzy Favor Hamilton has already been ranked, I have a hard time imagining that there's another female athlete who would outrank her, and I think she was around #19.

makes me long for the return of Sexy Rexy. I think the two are kindred spirits, but there's just something about Sexy Rexy ...
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Florida's situation is||
Florida's situation is similar to ours in previous years, actually. (Minus the recent NCs, of course.)
They have a system that works for a lot of their players and their coach ... just not their QB. Which means it pretty much doesn't work. They would be playing a bit differently if they had DRob or Cam Newton. As it stands, it ain't pretty.
