    If only Greg Reid had stuck with his verbal and become a Dawg…… he could be suspended for the Mizzou game too.

    This thing about Aaron Murray, is it Aaron’s fault that those WRs dropped the ball against LSU in the championship game? If I remember correctly the balls were thrown perfectly. Or against SC that someone completely forgot to block a freaking line man on the fumble return for a TD, or that the ST just let a 300 pound dude run down the sideline untouched on a fake punt?

    Or that the other QBs mentioned in the article actually had a running game, or the threat of one.

      Some of it is undoubtedly bad luck, but Garbin’s analysis shows luck is not that much the issue. Murray has not done well against the best teams.

    “Though I also think teaching students not to have affairs, not to hire their mistresses and not lie about it should also be in the course curriculum.”
    Is it just me or isn’t this something he should have learned before he left home.

      “teaching students not to have affairs, not to hire their mistresses and not lie about it should also be in the course curriculum.”

      Having that in any curriculum at FSU would seriously harsh the mellow

    anyone catch the Saban’s daughter lawsuit rumors? Is that legit..it definitely seems like something he doesnt have time for.

        That is awesome. It even has a better name than Dee Liner

      • What fresh hell is this?

        Funny stuff but what 3rd grader authored that complaint?

        • Charles

          That complaint should have had illustrations.

          • Dog in Fla

            such as an illustration of the middle of Sarah’s nose:

            “71. When the doctor performed the surgery, he could see the petition
            in the middle of Sarah’s nose was deformed, was shifted, and it was a direct result of the beating that Sarah received from Kristen.”

      • What fresh hell is this?

        From this complaint we can infer that Napoleon’s daughter played a drinking game for at least one hour, drove to Rounders where she continued to drink until last call and exhibited “erratic” behavior, then proceeded to drive everyone home from the bar…. beautiful.

          So, what you’re saying is that Crowell would still be playing at Bama?

          It’s good to know that the ladies are developing the social skills essential for advancement

          • AthensHomerDawg

            careful……

            • Dog in Fla

              The gals were planning to head to Waffle House (Paragraph/sentence 22) sometime after last call at Rounders but before daybreak. What could be more normal than that? Then the catfight broke out resulting in “repeated night terrors, anxiety, physical trembling, fears of dying from brain injuries, trouble sleeping, and intrusive recollections of the event.” (Paragrah/sentence 67) Is there really anybody out there who doesn’t already have those little quirks?

      “Has Nick Saban Lost Control of His Family”

      Won’t see THAT headline anywhere.

    Did I miss something about the Mizzou game moving from Sept 8 to Sept15?

    One thing that needs to be considered when evaluating Murray is the o-line. My guess is that if you analyzed it, you would see that those big game teams he has faced had better d-lines and that he was under a lot of duress during those games. The weakness of the o-line and running game could at least partially explain his drop in efficiency in big games (don’t forget that stafford had Mareno).

    “A Bobby Bowden statue… in Birmingham?”

    Why not ask Jimbo to ship the Bobby Bowden statute at his place to B’ham?

  8. Scott

    It may not meet the definition of a big game, but those two 4th down TD passes against Florida last season were pretty clutch (as were Michael Bennett and Tavarres King).

    I hope Coach Saban’s Daughter gets help. I have dealt with anger problems most of my life and it’s no joking matter. Young people can quickly turn rage like that inward and that’s extremely dangerous. I hope someone is keeping and eye on her. If she were my daughter she would be in a rehab center or a hospital.

    Thanks for the scoop about AJ’s jersey buyer. Really tried to follow that story when it first happened. Interesting to see the resolution. Love your site!
