  1. Clemson stepped up to #57 this year. Getting a little daring, aren't they?
  2. And......I'm excited about football again! I have no clue what's going to happen this year, but I've never seen this kind of positivity out of a losing program before. We will see if it is warranted, or if our hearts will get ripped out, and stomped on again.
  3. I understand your point, but my tongue in cheek point was that our special teams were nothing of the sort. Therefore, I don’t see losing Hutzler as any great loss, but I would like a coach to teach the players to preferably get a decent return, or at least fair catch, but if nothing else, get away from the ball if it’s bouncing near you.
  4. The question I have is, were our special teams any good? Texas was not very good. They finished 8-5 in a fairly weak conference, and won a bowl game after being touted as something great in the preseason. Yeah, they were better than us, but that’s not saying much. When we have a coach that LSU, or Alabama, or even Clemson is interested in, then we will be getting somewhere. Tom Herman can have him, it won’t make us worse.
  5. Yeah, I don’t see this as a much of a loss. I think you could pick any fan at random before the game to coach special teams and get about the same result
  6. I used to be a season ticket holder, but the cost is ridiculous. The face value of the ticket isn't too bad, or wasn't, but the added taxes and crap are stupid. Living in the Upstate, by the time I drive down, park, hang out for a bit with friends, watch the game, and then drive back, it's a minimum of twelve hours. Then add on top of that having to jostle through wall to wall people (I'm not a big fan of people in general, and especially not crowds), to sit in the heat in the beginning of the season, and the cold in the latter part of the season, and now add on top of that people will be drinking in the stadium, so that compounds on top of all the existing drunks, and we suck! It's just not worth it to me. I can sit in comfort in my recliner, get snacks without taking out a second mortgage, and not pee on a wall or in a trough, with everyone splashing around me. I think the game that ruined it for me was the UNC opener when we had the bad storm, and the stadium got cleared for lightning. People were already hot and sweaty, then got rained on. The smell was delightful.
  7. Lane Kiffin has hired DJ Durkin at Ole Miss. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/28409982/ole-miss-hires-former-maryland-coach-dj-durkin-assistant
  8. I agree with you. My point is now that our justice system is a joke. We have people walking around who have committed high crimes, yet little people go to jail for minor offenses. We have a two tired justice system, one for those who are connected, and everyone else.

  10. The whole idea of "Hate Crimes" is absolutely ridiculous. Is someone more dead because they were murdered because someone hated them? Murder is a crime period. I don't agree with a gay person being murdered because they are gay, and it being called a hate crime, therefore the penalty is greater, any more than I do all of a police department's resources being used to solve the murder of a cop, because it was "one of their own". A crime is a crime is a crime. If that crime becomes more punishable because of who someone is, then the whole system is ridiculous. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."
  11. Right! So, how do we get our people in there. We all know that cheating goes on in college sports, and if you don't cheat in football, you won't win much. So, since the point of college is to put yourself in a position to make more money, let's do it!
