Bama can learn from a past LSU experience playing in Texas. It would be smart to bring some portable air conditioning equipment as the visiting team locker room is actually a sauna.
Thst ridiculous “Golden Boot” trophy is a huge disincentive to playing well. The person(s) that designed it had to be Texas ATM graduates.
That is closer to reality than most efforts to figure this scheduling stuff out. But, in the end what happens is (1) what Bama wants because Sankey will see to that and (2) what the TV number crunchers finally figure out. The latter will be complicated as NIL and the foolish transfer portal rules will change all historical dynamics that number crunchers now factor in.
He must have thought he was still at Bama when he asked for the Cam Robinson deal.
Does Kentucky have something like Uber-for-Weed?
If Kentucky can accommodate Dare Rosenthal, this will not be a problem. They aren’t letting something like this get in the way of starting.
Yes, we should expect both Harbaughs to win national championships every year into the foreseeable future. Isn’t that what both have been doing.
Having the Wade recruiting taint (before it was formally approved with NIL) it is possible that he was purged and invited to bring his pick-up style of play to another place to showcase. The possible lack of interest by his first top four and the level of competition at his current top four is telling you something.
Negan usually splits something that long between a few alters.
I’m good with that list. Any or if them would initiate a well-deserved New Dark Age for the Tide. Can’t wait.
Thanks Loganville. We appreciate another outstanding young man. Keep sending ‘em.
Ed ceased being funny a long time ago. And, Conner, why insult Chizik with that comparison?
Actually, “Time” and NIL developments will separate winners and losers in the future. Maybe, the future will show us that Arkansas has become a recruiting machine capable of attracting all sorts of talent to Fayetteville like never before. But, money has always “talked” and B. S. still walks and can be found in volumes of articles in this and other football sites, especially during spring practice. LSU will be a better team but the Orgeron “bar” is very low. I will be happy if Coach Kelly just kills off that Orgeron “culture” forever. One thing that IS certain is that the Missou fake-Tigers should re-align to a conference where its team might have a chance to be relevant. That would do a lot for mental health in the Ozarks.
Bama loves that intra-squad practice. It's just like playing with your sister. My team just gushes over how good the Tigers will be when the season starts. Then real football begins and we get exposed - 2020 and 2021. But things could get a whole lot better quicker with Kelly at the helm. I’m hopin’.
Well, he knows a little about Auburn, particularly Finley. See, your problem is solved RonNegan.
Actually a Stage 4 locker room cancer and that isn’t talking about his off-field issues which are a whole other story. I hope that young man does have a future but it is unlikely to be football.
McGlothern was subject to suspension and bailed to the portal. His problem is infectious so, good luck to your team with that. McGlothern could take a life message from Tyrann Matthews. I hope he does.

Enjoy your team’s championship Negan. You are not likely to sniff another for a long time.
Again? Adam - the definition of “hilarious” is “extremely funny”. Kiffen’s comments on any subject are rarely extremely funny and this one did not reach the level of even un-extremely funny. “Hilarious” and Kiffen” must be your favorite go-to click-bait words. And, the sad thing about Ed’s behavior is that it’s juvenile regression at it’s pathetic best. And, yes, I know the Bama fans love it but even Ed’s mother has to be embarrassed.
A better question may be “Why punish only LSU?” The NCAA’s uneven-handed approach to rules violation is as big a problem as the “prosecuted” violations that unfortunately seem to take decades to investigate. Blue-bloods skate and others do not. That isn’t a defense for Wade’s actions but an observation about rampant hypocrisy and favoritism. But, LSU can and do better than Wade and will. Fans deserve better than pick-up basketball. Iowa State was a well-coached and disciplined team. My team was not.
Always interesting to hear from a fan of the historically inconsequential Missouri (fake) Tigers. Every coach in the SEC and elsewhere “better win or else”. Kelly will be at LSU as long as he wants to be at LSU. On the other hand the Mizzou coach is just another one in a long line of coaching “experiments” in mediocrity. I guess if Missouri fans can’t talk about winning in any sport, much less football, then trolling other teams is your only other option. Pathetic.
Brennan is our quarterback until he gets hurt or proves that he cannot recover gsme-winning form after a too long time away from the field. Daniels may have slipped a bit last year but he has been consistent wearing Purple & Gold. Whether his size and skills translate to the SEC remains to be seen.
Not optimistic that he will ever be an SEC quarterback. Arizona stats, as concerning as they may be, won’t be replicated here. Size and weight are also issues.
Is Ron Mexico really just another Negan alter? Just counting the number of words in an average Ron Mexico post may be misleading if you aren’t also counting the numerous separate back and forth garbage posts on the same topic. I’m not ruling out another Negan alter just yet. And, his wierd obsession with Auburn may signal just another Bama troll.
Few teams are ever great at all of these positions and this years Tiger team won’t be either. We will need time to recover from Orgeronitis but the needed change from the past culture and team attitude is securely in place. It will also take some for team chemistry to develop. The defense will be solid and aggressive. The o-line is the open question and if it jells and plays well we will be on the way back. After the past two years mismanagement of everything, the least of our issues will be whether Kelly is or isn’t a cultural fit. I’ve seen enough of the past culture to know that anything else will be an upgrade. Kelly is a real head coach.

Mr. Hooker seems to be the Captain Obvious of college football. He must be paid “by the word” to write such insightful stuff. Glad2besec is absolutely correct. But, just wait until NIL Ver. 2 unfolds. That is when the Vol boosters have paid big bucks for THE guy who will take them to a championship only to see THE guy in a different uniform the next season. NIL isn’t done yet. Dammit.
