First random thought waiting for a plane in San Diego

Considering who’s recruited whom, who’s coached whom, who’s coached with whom and who’s going to be coaching with whom, the post-game on the field meeting between the teams after the national championship game ought to be interesting to watch.

    SEC coaching merry-go-round = incest

      Yes, but they get other blood into the mix as well that always seems to bring in new thoughts and methods. It ain’t incest if they are 4th cousins, Hairy.

    I anticipate both coaches to act professionally and cordially. You know, once Kirby stops jumping up and down with the team 😉

  3. I feel like Fulmer should really insist Pruitt spend most of this week in Knoxville getting his new staff assembled.

    Agree?

    I’m with Saban and Kirby. Smart’s staff outcoached Riley’s but the players will win this game unless one side insists on being ultra conservative on offense and chooses not to give their players a chance. Trying to avoid mistakes with the ball in this game certainly sounds wise but it will also get you shut out.

    Over/under on how many times Saban’s record against his former assistants is referenced by the announcer?

    I’m sure glad Jeremy Pruitt beat out that Kirby Smart guy for the services of Lorenzo Carter !

    “Ignore the horseshit” should be our buzzwords to focusing upon this game. It should be a humdinger that we have thirsted for since Murray’s last pass.

    Both these teams have great coaching and are separately great teams. Let’s let the kids play for their grand memory by considering that they all deserve to be there as a team and that’s where we need to relegate this game for all the marbles. No excuses, just great CF players going at it. This should be a fan’s delight.

    Since we’re talking about coaches….Rich Rodriguez just got canned by Arizona for a “sexual harrassment” allegation that the university admits is unsupported and which Rich vehemently denies. I wonder….if Rich’s team had gone 11-2 this season instead of 7-6 would the Arizona administration have pulled the trigger? I think “no.”

      You seem really hell-bent on pushing back against people being canned for sexual harassment. Makes one wonder.

        Yeah, who needs the whole due process/innocent until proven guilty thing?

          Due process is for a court of law. Your employer doesn’t need a conviction to fire you for improper conduct.

          And no, it doesn’t particularly bother me because I, unlike a lot of “southern men” took that whole “respect women” thing seriously.

            Lot of space between “respect” and believe everything any woman says without question. Good thing you weren’t the deciding vote on the Duke Lacrosse thing. I respect women as much as anyone but I do know some of them will tell a lie. I guess anything any woman said about you, true or not, should be believed by everyone due to the “respect women” thing and you would not have any issue with losing a job over something said about you by a woman if it was not true?

            As to the firing you for improper conduct thing; if your employer fires you for “improper conduct”, they better have some pretty good evidence of that conduct in the event you sue them for wrongful termination.

            I don’t exactly know what being a Southern man has to do with anything but I’m guessing you’re not one.

              Not sure what I am more surprised about, that he claims to be “Southern”, or a “man”. Probably just a Millennial, which means he/she doesn’t have a clue about a damned thing.

          What seems narrow minded and lopsided to me is how “southern men” reliably cast doubt and condemnation on every single accusation of sexual harassment. Every time.

            Chili thats not what he was trying to convey. And the “Southern men” inference is over the top. C’mon! really? We have to make sure this conversation continues “BUT” there is some well deserved cynicism here.

              No, theres really not. It’s flat out embarrassing how men today react to sexual harassment/assault allegations. I’ve been around long enough to recognize the pervasive culture where women are viewed as sexual objects first, and professionals second, so for any man to treat every allegation with skepticism or outright denial isn’t rooted in reality at all, but rather denial.

              And the “southern men” comment isnt misplaced at all. Because southerners are giant hypocrites who tell everyone how they were raised to respect women and yet they are no better, possibly worse, when it comes to their actual treatment of women.

              I don’t care if that offends you. If it takes offending all the snowflakes to get them to wake up to a sea change in culture that everyone needs to wake up to, then so be it. But we’ve got to stop acting like the culture of harassment is a made up fad and start looking at ourselves and asking if our own attitudes of dismissal arent part of the problem.

                Chili I am certainly not offended and hardly a snowflake. Lol.

                I applaud your passion however misplaced I believe it to be. That is too broad a stroke of the brush to paint an entire region of the US. Why do you need to slander all men inhabiting one of the greatest regions in the USA?. You know they can’t all be like that.

                I have a couple of thoughts to share. First I certainly hope I have not come across as dismissive of your points here.
                It’s my humble opinion Southern men seem to have more respect and appreciation for women and this is instilled at early ages by the women and men in their lives. Having shared that.
                You can measure yourself by who you huddle up with. And I commend you for not throwing out a bunch of “ist” words.

                The south is not what it use to be. And not all men residing here are Southerners. They just happen to live in the south. 😉 Keep well.

                “Newcomers should get much of the blame. In the past decade, the South has seen an unprecedented influx of immigrants from other states and countries. The population in the South grew by 14.3 percent from 2000 to 2010, making it the fastest-growing region in the country.”

                And last …. a bit of tongue in cheek

      They still have to pay him $6 million+ buyout money. He denies any harassment and there is no evidence. I guess they were looking for a reason to fire him and found some gal to claim harassment and PC universities don’t mind the ready, fire, aim technique handling these type things. I don’t particularly like Rich Rod but I’d love to see him tag the school for a huge settlement in a libel/wrongful termination suit. Maybe if enough schools get hammered for multi million dollar verdicts in these PC witch hunts some sanity will return? I doubt it.

    Random question. Since we’re the higher ranked team do we wear Red?
