    I don't get how the city of McKinney can be in the city of Dallas or the city of Frisco. I might have to sign up for the camp myself. I think I've got one year of eligibilty left. I can tell him Thornton Mellon is my inspiration. I will propose to teach him the Triple Lindy if he can teach me to "go deep".

    JUCO DT Tony Fair [UAB Commit]

    I'm inclined to trust the coaches on this situation with the benefit of seeing how things seem to be playing out. Sometimes silence speaks volumes.

    JUCO DT Tony Fair [UAB Commit]

    I didn't say Coach Frost was cut throat, Saban surely is. You are correct in that there isn't a lot of definitive info provided to make any sort of judgement. It was a philosophical musing. I want to be clear that I don't have an experts accumen on recruiting. My takes are more of the longtime fan on the outside looking in variety.

    JUCO DT Tony Fair [UAB Commit]

    Yeah, I'm far from an expert, but I was under the impression that we were taking up to 30 recruits. I'm inclined to believe that Tony Fair has a very good work ethic(23 hours in one semester), did what was asked of him and Nebraska bailed on him. If you want to run the program like Nick Saban, all the "if you are committed to us, we are committed to you" statements need to stop. The defensive line I watched this year needs all the help it can get. If his play suffered a little this year, the academic workload had a lot to do with that, I would guess. I don't know. I don't want to be compared to Alabama off the field, just on it. You don't have to be a cut throat douche to succeed. It might make it easier, but at what cost? I trust the coaches over all, but a situation like this shows that they are not perfect. s#!t happens. Acknowledge it's kind of a s#!tty situation, and move on. I hope Tony Fair accomplishes his goals and doesn't blow up on a future opponent's team.

    Martinez and the QB running game.

    I think his running attempts will go down a few per game as he gets acclimated to the offense, gets to know his offensive teammates strengths and tendencies. I am really encouraged about the coaching staff's ability to develop players. Pretty much every position performed much better as the season went on. I am not too worried about the loss of some very good players to graduation, there are more on the way.

    Turner Gill retires

    Except Liberty enjoys tax exempt status, so they can't be replaced with any widget company. The religious tax exemption is to offset all the supposed charity that religious institutions are supposedly doing. Providing a forum for Republican candidates and pushing a political agenda should not be considered charity, therefore I think they should be taxed accordingly or adhere to the intent of tax exemption status. Edit: They also need to realize that they, in NO WAY, hold ANY moral high ground. Too hypocritical.

    Urban Meyer to retire following the Rose Bowl

    I'm trying to link from my phone. Colombus newspaper reporting Ohio State to announce Urban Meyer's retirement after the Rose Bowl. www.nbc4i.com Mods, please remove or merge with other thread. Knappy's too fast.

    DE Ty Robinson [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    I just wish I could get paid on a 25 to 1 horse that I put money on when it had a 3 link lead down the back stretch after I had already bet on the 2 to 3 favorite before the race started. I don't follow the recruiting sites, I just peruse here and I appreciate all the info provided. What I don't understand is why there is no accountability when a CB is changed. Personally, I think once a Crystal Ball is changed, credit for being correct should be negated. If things are fluid and things happen, why was the CB issued in the first place? Edit: I think we get Ty and he will be a contributor relatively early. He seems to have a plan for making his choice and I think that demonstrates his intelligence and thoroughness. We need defensive playmakers.
  11. LSU got screwed worse than Nebraska in College Station. Illegal formation on the spike should have been a run off, not a put 1 second back on.

    The replay on the A.M.'s non-fumble confirmed a terrible spot by the refs.
  14. Fallout 76 is going to be occupying a lot of my time in the near future. I really enjoy it. It's a nice twist.

    Tiger vs. Phil

    If they played for their own money, I would be interested. Even the side bets aren't to be taken seriously. I would rather watch 5 Tour Pros play Wolf or something, with Nassaus to keep guys interested in every shot. Playing with their own money. Shadow Creek is mind boggling. I had a GM that was the superintendent there for a few years. He knows Steve Wynn and has told me a few stories. He was able to get me on Shadow Creek about 15 years ago. It is, hands down, the most immaculate place I have ever set foot upon. It's unreal, considering the location.
