  1. And this is why I quit commenting on this site.
  2. I just think you and I will have to agree to disagree on his value outside of that as a blocking receiver.
  3. Will Hastings was on the sideline with an ACL injury, and has consistently proven when on the field that he can be trusted to catch the ball. I feel (don't have time to look up the numbers so don't crucify me for it) like I've seen a lot more drops out of NCM than Will Hastings over the last 2 years. As for Davis, it was mentioned above - NCM is a better blocker and Davis is faster than NCM. I think our depth chart had better WRs from a catching standpoint than NCM which we used, and he was a better blocker, which based on the set we came out with and the play called, we used him on. All I can give is my opinion - I've yet to be concerned about anyone who left the team. The only concern I see to it is that we'll be hard-pressed to sell a top TE recruit to us based on the fact that it is a sorely underutilized position ever since Lutz left.
  4. Yeah, he was good when he could get separation. But Will Hastings and Ryan Davis can do that exact same route and they manage to create the separation needed to give Stidham the opportunity. Stidham didn't just decide to not throw him the ball - he hasn't been open. We will miss him from a blocking standpoint moving forward with regards to jet sweeps, reverses, and screens, to be sure. Other than that, I think you'll be hard-pressed to pinpoint any situation where we truly miss his "production".
  5. Everything I'm reading is that NCM and his brother are gone. I get that people are upset from a star power standpoint, but he's been surpassed by the incoming class at that position. If he could get open, he'd have been used more. He can't create the separation to provide an outlet for Stidham to get the ball to him, and as the possession guy he's got to contend with both Ryan Davis and a Will Hastings coming back now too. Nature of the beast with the new redshirt rule. This rule is going to turn into a college version of the day NFL teams have to drop their 53 man rosters, mark my words.
  6. Mark my words: Alabama has 2 regular season losses. Mark my words: South Carolina wins the SEC East. Mark my words: Auburn has a 1,000 yard receiver. Mark my words: Auburn has at least 2 defensive All-SEC first teamers on the defensive line.
  7. USC isn't going to expand like that anytime soon. They don't have anywhere to really do it unless they get rid of their scoreboard they just put up 5-6 yrs ago. Just won't happen. They also just spent a small fortune creating a football park outside their stadium and moving all the tailgating/parking across Bluff Road in their new VERY nice Gamecock Park. It's one of the few perks you can point to with an off-campus stadium. Arkansas, I would think, would need to see some winning before justifying the expansions. They usually go hand in hand. As far as we go, chalk me into the "make the gameday experience better/make the exterior more aesthetically pleasing before adding seats" group. We have a hell of a home field advantage and are widely considered one of the top 2 toughest places to play in the conference and country, and that's beating out all but one of the stadiums you referenced (Death Valley's gonna Death Valley - especially at night).
  8. Greene just confirmed that Gus has already met with him and hit him up for a football-only facility. Greene confirmed that's first on his docket. Excited they all see what's sorely needed and hope that we do like other schools have and get the trophies/balls/etc. front and center. Should see that gear right off the bat!
  9. Charles said this a while ago - there was a video of him saying he tried to get someone to pay him to go to AU too. At this point doesn't matter and interesting story.
  10. If I were Tennessee I'd absolutely make him tell me no at this point. It was an eternity ago that their issue happened. The man left for his dream job, and from what I remember reading (doesn't make it true and I cannot find source) the powers that be wouldn't let him address the team before he left - not his decision to leave in the middle of the night without saying anything. He's electric as far as personality goes, he's got the scheme to win in the SEC, and he knows how to recruit. Not to mention he's a younger coach who wouldn't soon forget that UT gave him another shot. Plus, it would not make the fans of West Vance happy.
  11. Well, there we go. Heron is safe at least.
  12. I'll have a cigar ready. All I'm gonna say.
  13. My Bold Prediction is looking legit: At least 3 HC openings in the SEC by season's end.
