    Speaking of targeting, it's too bad Fields was in such tough shape from his hit by Clemson's Smalski (an obvious, intentional targeting which some sleazy NFL coach will think was wonderful) - but the OSU D simply couldn't handle Alabama.

    Nobody could much this year.

    One of the things I find a bit amazing, and quite admirable about Saban is his ability to grow and adapt.

    Remember when 'bama was the epitome of SEC 'ground & pound' football. "If you don't let 'em score none, you don't NEED much of an offense". But he was ahead of the curve when he got chummy with Chip Kelly and decided offense was a good thing. And see where it has them... out ahead of things again.

    greatest college football coach of all time?



    one of the things i find most amazing is it seems like heís highly introverted to the point of being shy even; yet he has amazing people and team building skills - Iím not just talking about the players and how he develops, molds, and coaches them; but this man leads an organization of hundreds assistants and other staffers and 20 to 30 percent of his key people leave every year to further their own careers and he rebuilds every year

    i also thought it especially notable this year to see sarkisianís continued focus and loyalty to this alabama team and these players after being named the texas coach

    Yes to all of that.

    Sarkisian seems to be on a mission from god... to prove the accuracy of the Peter Principle.

    He should stick around and do the job he is so good at, instead of trying to be a HC... which it seems he's very bad at.

    Sarkisian was so young for those early coaching jobs. Hell, heís still pretty young to be Texasí head coach. I wish him luck. It shouldnít be*, but thatís gonna be a tough gig.

    * coaching texas should be like coaching alabama, plenty of money, plenty of tv, top notch facilities, great fans and boosters, fertile recruiting grounds

    super high expectations

    Betcha a nickle he flops again. My theory is that he's just not emotionally/psychologically suited to the role. You in? Can you afford that much? <G>

    Weasel words. The world is filled with weaselywordiness. You got a nickle in your pocket or doncha?

    Yeah, I'm no Texas fan, either. They haven't been a top-10 program for a long time... and yet they stupidly insit they're top-5. As you said... all those advantages. And yet they go, again and again, for the coaching home run. But that's Texas... in general.

    A comparison between Texas and Alabama: so Sark wants to hire Jeff Banks, Bamaís special teams and tight ends coach, who is an excellent recruiter, especially in Texas. He makes about $300k to work at Alabama. No big deal. Texas pays him one million dollars. Boom, he gone. Think Texas isnít serious about this?

    So how does Nick Saban respond? By hiring former Houston/Texas A&M/Arizona head coach Kevin Sumlin to take Bankís place, a brilliant offensive mind who is also an excellent recruiter. He may not be able to outspend them, but Nick Saban stays ahead of the curve constantly.

    It would seem a fathers love knows no limits. This project was entirely of Gordo’s design. Size, layout, materials... the whole shebang.

    FBB495AF-C53B-48E9-990D-A38735080C64.jpg

    Every game he’s attended since he was five.

    Of course, it’s not all bad...

    0895EEB1-DE10-433E-BCE5-F69FE55094CD.jpg

    The infamous “Whoa! He has troubled with the snap!”

    And this game,
    702D8558-AE38-4307-A87F-62641B4DB0C8.jpg
    where Kat was accosted by that drunk guy who wanted to get his picture taken with her so that he could post it on the Internet.

    She was understandably hesitant at first, but then the drunk said that he’d been texting with her husband and she was cool with it.

    in other news, tom brady throws three picks and goes to the supertazÚn anyway.

    aaron rodgers pitches a great game and gets second guessed for not doing everything himself.

    has any athlete ever gotten things to go his way more than brady. disgusting.

    I'd say the game went the way it did more because of TB's defense than anything else. I'll admit to being very surprised they won.

    The crazy part of football!

    One of the Fresno State quarterbacks who made it big actually made it all the way; local folks who dislike Dilfer claim it was the defense that won him his ring.
    So?

    Them rings is neato!

    Indeed. As I said, “A father’s love...”.

    My FIL has leased a suite for his business for about a dozen years now. Between that and his basketball tickets (you may recognize my knees from such games as...) it has finally shifted Gordo’s healthy 60-40 balance to a sad 40-60 balance.

    The funny thing was when he told me that he was “officially a Michigan fan” was right before Cassius Winston singlehandedly took apart the Wolverines three times in as many weeks.

    If you watch Fresno State footage from the MWN (Mountain West Network) on the web, you can probably hear me barking.

    My wife and I have always watched baseball and softball together. Sitting in the ballpark being a fool is something we enjoy.

    We used to have seats at the pro baseball games, and weíd talk mess. Yep, Iíve trash talked Posey and The Panda.

    Softball hits differently, though. Itís fast, and fun to watch. Especially if youíre at Fresno State, and you can get campus made, proprietary sausages and hot dogs...

    How so? TB defense seems to be playing really well - and Brady is putting on a seminar, IMO. Surprised to see KC defense make so many errors.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    We turn on SB's to watch 'good' football. Not to watch one of the teams shoot themselves in the foot (and take themselves into a big hole) with a string of penalties.

    Jeebus, not only am I glad to root against Brady, and enjoy Mahomes, but I've got a little bet going on this one. I sure hope KC makes the right adjustments. They're good at coming back, but THAT good?

    KC #32 better sit on the bench until he cools off. His penalties alone will lose the game.
    Brady is really something to see.
    I'm having a Face Time football party with my two brothers. They are KC fans and are tearing their hair out.

    I don't know the rulebook - but my biased view is that he didn't interfere. He tripped and fell and inadvertently touched the receiver. No intent, and a very generous interpretation of 'catchable ball'.
