    "They're probably gonna fire me"

    In that clip you can see the score is 27-10 which was long after the targeting call. I have a hard time believing Malzahn would be saying that an hour or two later.

    11 am Games

    I agree with your point but it does seem like this game would be a better draw than MSU vs La Tech which is a 6:30 game.

    Where is the problem

    So on that first play, is it designed so that Driscoll doesn't block anybody and he just hauls ass upfield? It looked like his plan from the time the ball was snapped was to block the safety. At the end of that play, you have 2 offensive linemen trying to block 5 or 6 Southern Miss players, Horton is jogging just outside of the pile doing nothing, and the other two are nowhere to be seen. So is that the result of linemen not doing their job or really terrible play design? Maybe both?

    Official Kavanaugh hearing thread

    He is being investigated. He has been investigated. If he isn't cleared then he should be disqualified. I am not arguing to put him on the bench no matter what, I simply don't want to see somebody's career be ruined by accusations that are not true. As I mentioned in my previous post, most of the accusations against him have already been shown to be false or ridiculous. I think Ford's is most credible but there are issues with her story and nobody has corroborated her story. If you don't think he is qualified to be a Supreme Court judge based on his experience, then fine, but Ford's accusation should not be a reason to disqualify him without any form of proof or evidence to support it.

    Official Kavanaugh hearing thread

    I would be fine if one person could be produced to corroborate they were at this party. If one of the guys or girls at this party were able to put these two and Judge at the same place around that time frame then that would be a big deal to me in her favor. Just her being able to add more detail might help. So far, every person she said was there doesn't recall this party. She doesn't recall most of the party which is suspicious. How can she not remember who she went with and especially how she got home immediately following this event. Why do her statements vary in the number of people there? I believe in the notion of burden of proof and that Kavanaugh is not responsible for proving his innocence, his guilt has to be proven by the accuser. Look at the other accusers. Ramirez has already been quoted by her friends as saying she wasn't sure it was Kavanaugh and she made the accusation anyway. Swetnick's story is absurd and unbelievable and she made the accusation anyway. The one about him pushing his date against a wall has been called a lie by the woman he was dating. The one about him assaulting a woman on a boat was recanted. Out of 5 accusations, 1 is somewhat believable but there are holes in the story, and the rest are proven lies or obvious lies. You have a precedent in this case for fabricating and lying to try and attack Kavanaugh. So yeah, I have a hard time just taking anybody's word on accusations against him at this point.

    I couldn't care less about Kavanaugh personally. As you said, I had never heard of him before two months ago. But any person potentially having a long successful career and life ruined by an accusation without any evidence or proof to support it, I will defend somebody against that any day of the week.

    I think Gus May be Tubberville 2.0

    He did a decent job against Saban's LSU teams.

    Ford on her therapist's notes from 2012: the therapist said 4 boys were in the room but that was a mistake, there were 4 boys at the party but only 2 in the room Ford's letter to Feinstein on July 30: I was at a party that included me and 4 others Ford's polygraph statement on August 7: there were 4 boys and a couple of girls All three of the above statements come from Ford about how many people were at this party. Why is the number of people at this party a moving target? She is sure there were 4 boys during her therapy session and she was sure there were only 5 people total including herself in her letter to Feinstein dated July 30. So based on her therapy notes and letter to Feinstein, this party included her and 4 boys. Then 8 days later, on August 7, after she has had legal counsel, she states there were 4 boys and a couple of girls. So in 8 days, we went from 5 people at the party which, based on her statements, included herself and 4 boys, to approximately 7 people at the party including herself, 4 boys, and a couple (2) of girls. Why did this change and what was the point in adding girls to the story? I don't necessarily believe Ford is lying but I do believe she is withholding information for some reason.

    Will Stidham Return for 2019 Season?

    I know on at least one play last week he stood in the pocket and got the pass off right before getting absolutely destroyed. I noticed because I thought he was going to get sacked and he got the ball away right before the defender drilled him square in the chest. He took a pretty big hit running the ball against Washington in the first game trying to make a play. He has shown more than enough he will take a hit. On the last play of the game against UCF we had 33 seconds left and no timeouts. The defender came untouched and was on Stidham within 1.5 seconds of the ball being snapped. There wasn't a receiver on the field looking at him because they were barely into their routes by the time he had to throw it away. If he gets sacked there then we maybe have a chance for one more play. He was trying to get the ball out of the back of the endzone and couldn't get enough into the throw because the defender was on him. That was a failure on the tackle.

    Will Stidham Return for 2019 Season?

    I do not think we have near the blocking capability up front to run the offense like we did in 2013. While I think our running backs have potential, we definitely do not have a Tre Mason to lean on. In my opinion, if we want to win right now, then Stidham gives us the best potential by a wide margin.
  11. I know Dean had his hand on the receiver's arm but he had perfect position, was looking back for the ball, and played the ball not the receiver. I have seen that same coverage called perfect in other games right down to the defender holding the receivers arm. I have heard announcers say that as long a you are looking back for the ball then you can use your other hand to locate the receiver. In the end it is always a judgement call by the ref but I thought it was a BS call.

    Arkansas Score Prediction

    Everybody on the roster or being recruited was listed as a dual threat QB coming out of high school, even Stidham, if you can believe that? I guess White and Johnson were the last pro style QBs he went after so maybe that is a sign that he finally accepted that his offense works better with dual QBs.
  13. I would expect the starters are going to play a good bit regardless of the score. It is only the second game so we don't really need the rest at this point and we still have some kinks to work out. I would prefer we let the starters play and figure out the issues we still have this week instead of saving them for LSU.
  14. I agree with this. When a play breaks down and Stidham runs he seems more committed to it and typically has more success. On the designed runs he appears to be tentative and slower moving. I guess it gives the opponent something to think about but they feel like wasted plays and I hate we are putting him in a position to get hit.

    Baseball vs. Florida game 3

    Outside of Mize, our pitching was phenomenal all weekend, which is really odd to say, but gives a lot of hope for the program the next few years. This team has a lot of young talent. Now we just got to pay Thompson and make sure to keep him around.
