  1. I think Alabama wins this game, but it will be close. I am truly thankful we got to this point. It really looked touch and go there for a little bit. We made it through the season, the CFP is almost done. I pray we have as close to a normal season as possible next year.
  2. The catch phase now is ( whatever moves the needle ) is what they will say. Does not have to be right or wrong or true or false. Just move the needle.
  3. I really like what Saban said about Sark when asked before the game against ND. He always has an answer for the players when they have a question. Whether it is about a play call or how they do something. He does not just say do it because I said do it. Ha always has a good answer and relates well with all the players. I think Texas needs that right now. More than anything, ever who Texas hires, it would be nice if everyone would get behind the hire and get on the same page to start with. Charlie Strong did not stand a chance from the start. Certain boosters made sure of that. Until everybody
  4. Tough kids make tough players. I think in the lower divisions you are almost always better off having the toughest players than the most athletic players in a one game match up. In the 2nd half Jim Ned just took it to HV. Wore them down then gutted them up the middle and made the passes with one on one match ups when they had to.
  5. His record shows he wins more than 2 or 3 games a year. I am only going by what records were put in front of me. What I hate is knee jerk reactions over 2 bad years after 5 or 6 good years.
  6. I am a veteran to and I support people peacefully protesting however they want also, but I respect some like Jenkins that plays for the Eagles that is actually out in the community trying to make a difference. Kneeling to disrespect the flag to draw attention to a cause is kind of like praying in public. You want to be seen doing something good and righteous. If all you do is pray and kneel and your works don't support those actions. What are you really doing.
  7. From 2012 to 2018 your Coach went to 2 semi finals and twice went 3 or 4 rounds deep in two other years and you want to remove him for a bad year in 2019 and a screwed up COVID-20 year. I tell you this profession is just getting harder and harder to be in.
  8. I got to talk to Royal about 20 years ago at coaching school. It was great. Easy guy to talk to. So humble.
  9. I always wondered why OU did not pursue him hard to come back to OU, maybe they did though backdoor channels I don't know. I think deep down Royal was just loyal to Texas for sticking with him though the good and bad times. He was just a honest to good person who felt loyal.
  10. Yes that's a good example. Good patience by Clemson and they have been rewarded.
  11. I really don't mean to knock on Shula to hard but he is not Nick. My point is that it can be hit and miss going after the homerun hires. One never knows what your going to get right out of the bat and will the admin have the patience to wait like VT on Beamer or FSU on Bowden. Bama has not been perfect in this process either. They struck Gold with Nick and the Bear. Texas stuck gold with Royal and did just Ok with Mack.
  12. Alabama before Nick did not do so good in hiring also. Now Nick is getting on up there in age and won't be there forever. Let's wait and see if they go and hire another Curry or Shula to take his place. Roll Tide.
  13. Can you get tickets at the gate for this one on friday.
  14. Did the same thing I have done the last 4 years last night. Watched the Sands of Iwo Jima with John Wayne because it was the Marine Corps birthday, then I watched the 1st 4 episodes of Band of Brothers. Will watch the rest of Bands of Brothers tonight.
  15. How do I verify I am not a robot.
  16. Palestine's Freshmen team did not lose a game all year. Palestine should be alright the next couple of years.
  17. Well if Scorestream is right I did not see this coming . Elkhart 16 Huntington 14.
  18. You just had to take the bait and get him started. My vote for comedian of the year.
  19. My prediction is Westwood beats Trinity this week. That will set up a show down with Huntington vs Westwood for 4th place unless Trinity upsets Crockett. If Westwood could put together two good back to back games they could go to the playoffs. I just would not bet on it. I think Coldsprings gets in with just 3 losses. If I was forced to put money on it. 1st Diboll 2nd Crockett 3rd Coldsprings 4th Huntington
  20. I think Huntington is the best bet to get 4th. All they have to do is beat Elkhart and Westwood. They should have no problem with Elkhart. As far as Westwood goes they are streaky. Hard for them to put 2 good games together back to back so they will lose one to either Trinity or Huntington. If Trinity beats Westwood this week then they become the favorite to get the 4th spot because they hold the head to head over Huntington. I don't think they can beat Crockett though, but that will still leave them in 4th. The key game this week like someone else said is Westwood vs Trinity. Lot o
  21. Please don't get him started.
  22. Will this game be streamed by someone.
  23. Will have to admit, this made me laugh.
