  1. Texas Locker Room

    Almost exactly what I was thinking...a cheap approximation of the home locker room at Autzen.
  2. Can Pettway break Tre's record?

    Assuming he can duplicate what he did in '16 with 5.9 yards per carry he would have to carry the ball 300 times. Which is 100 carries more than he had last year. It would be nice from a personal standpoint if he did break it, but I can guarantee that Chip and Gus wouldn't want him to have to carry the ball between the tackles that many times against the defenses we will face. That's almost cruel and unusual punishment if you don't have to. Hoping Kerryon's production will mandate that they won't.
  3. Sal Cannela impressing the team

    I just hope for his sake he plays well enough to ditch the hair. Let your game do your talking, son. Not too long ago there was a JUCO kid from California who was all jacked up and supposed to be a great edge rusher. Had a crazy Italian last name as well. Remember this is the SEC.
  4. Rare footage of 57' championship season

    Vestavia Hills in Birmingham. Went to the state finals three years in a row and finally won it in '80 against the Thundering Herd of Parker. He was also an incredible wrestling coach.
  5. Rare footage of 57' championship season

    He was such a great teacher of the game...I hung on his every word.
  6. Rare footage of 57' championship season

    Thanks for posting. That defense allowed 28 points in 10 games. My high school defensive line coach, Jim Jeffrey (#74) was a two way tackle on that team. The most intimidating guy I ever knew, I saw him chew up a lit cigarette multiple times. He had every bit of my attention when he spoke, and I would have done anything he told me to.
  7. Hugh Freeze Resigns

    Three teenage daughters. Anybody who takes pleasure in this is sick. Not saying anybody on this board has. It's a sad day for the SEC.
  8. Summer Ball Updates

    I believe he relied too much on the fastball which was dominant speed-wise in high school. Because he shows the ball well from a hitter's perspective and has a classic delivery and is very flat movement wise he can't get the fastball by most college hitters. Unless they change his arm slot, I'm of the opinion he is going to have to go to a cut or two seam with a lot of pressure on one finger a la Tim Hudson (he called it a "one finger fastball") in order to create movement. That and the fact that he probably never relieved until he got to Auburn which can take some serious mental adjustment...hopeful he can find his way to a mid-week starter role at the very least in '18.
  9. T-Will and his linebackers

    Mister feel good Joel Osteen. Blood is necessary in football too, and none of that is Bible, I'd rather hear from Takeo.
  10. Ole Miss

    Which is the cynicism font/color?
  11. Summer Ball Updates

    Will Holland playing for the Amsterdam Mohawks of the Perfect Game Summer Collegiate League. Has played in 22 of 32 games hitting .299 on 77 ab's...has 6 stolen bases which is notable but also leads the team by a long shot with 10 errors and his home field is astroturf. http://pgcbl.bbstats.pointstreak.com/team_stats.html?teamid=90386&seasonid=30892
  12. Summer Ball Updates

    Conor Davis playing for the Peninsula Pilots of the Coastal Plain League. Has played in 14 of 33 games (assuming he got there after the season had already started) really seems to be struggling at the plate. Batting .158 on just 38 at bats. 1 double, 1 triple and 2 home runs in his 6 hits. 15 strikeouts and 8 walks. Needs to pick it up a notch. http://www.coastalplain.com/statistics/2017/pen.htm#team.mlb
  13. Ole Miss

    This will certainly damn the NCAA investigation just like the Nevin Shapiro trial blew up the case against Miami. Some how, some way Mark Emmert's clowns will figure out a way to use this to completely screw the pooch. Good grief when will we learn? And the Laremy Tunsil three ring circus of draft night '16 still doesn't even figure into any of this. But if the NCAA waits long enough to show a pulse on this the damage will eventually be done. Just like Miami.
  14. Summer Ball Updates

    Jeremy Johnson playing for the Chugiak Chinooks in the Alaskan Baseball League. Second on the team with a .288 batting average in 22 games played through July 10th. http://alaskabaseball.bbstats.pointstreak.com/team_stats.html?teamid=35699&seasonid=30809

    The news not so good for Daniel Sprinkle who is pitching for Wisconsin in the Northwoods League. He has appeared in 14 games (all in relief) for 21 1/3 innings, he's given up a ridiculous 34 hits and 13 earned runs. ERA is 5.48 and has a record of 0-3. This from Sunday July 9th: "Daniel Sprinkle suffered the loss on the mound, allowing five runs on six hits. He also struck out a batter while working ⅔ of an inning." http://northwoods.bbstats.pointstreak.com/team_stats.html?teamid=161&seasonid=30702&view=pitching
