  1. 2020 NR RB Deondre Jackson Commits to AU!!

    Pretty much. I like watching actual football games. If recruiting 15-yr olds excites you ... to each his own.
  2. 2020 NR RB Deondre Jackson Commits to AU!!

    Nope -- never said a word about Joey Gatewood. However, I've always maintained only one absolute re recruiting exists: a verbal commit 3 months or 3 years in advance of a recruit actually putting their signature down on paper & faxing in their offer is NOT binding. Seen it (way) too many times before.
  3. 2020 NR RB Deondre Jackson Commits to AU!!

    Sooo, let me get this straight. The earliest we could see Deondre on the field at AU would be 3 years from now? As fickle as 18-yr olds are with their commits between the time they make them and signing day ... why would anyone in their right mind be ecstatic over a 15-yr old's "commit?" smdh

    Equally impressed with this quote: Seems he's got the right focus!
  6. Carlson Runner-up Again For Lou Groza Award

    I've looked at that entire site. The Semis were declared at the end of October, and the Finalists before the last regular season game in November. Carlson had a productive month in November including 4 FG made against UGA so, he likely made up ground on the field of Semis. Gay also had a very productive November and maintained his lead. Carson 2017 stats Gay 2017 stats It's clear what the commission values: number of FGM with added emphasis on 50+ yds, FG% & 100% XPM, total points. What's also clear is that the commission does not take into consideration KOs resulting in touch-backs. Carlson (I think I read this somewhere) made 72% of KOs into touch-backs. Gay didn't have any touch-backs because the Utah punter performed all KO duties. Kind of odd when you think about it since an award for "top place-kicker" should probably include all place-kicks, both free & scrimmage -- right? Even the awards namesake was noted for KOs resulting in touch-backs during a time when it wasn't very common and statistics on it likely weren't kept (like they are now.) Lou Groza
  7. Carlson Runner-up Again For Lou Groza Award

    Total nonsense. The Palm Beach Sports Commission recognized him for their Pre-Season Watch List, named him three times to their "2017 Stars of the Week" listing (Gay was named twice,) and selected him as both a Semi- and then finally, a Finalist for the award. Carson kicked four 50+ FG, Gay kicked five. Both kicked 100% of XP, although Carlson made nearly 150% more than Gay (54 vs 37.) Carlson scored 117 points, Gay scored 118. The only marked difference would be in % of FGs made: Carlson 75%, Gay 87.1%. Luck had nothing to do with Carlson's selection -- one doesn't get to be the SEC's all-time scoring leader, and the NCAA's runner-up to the scoring kicker leader by "luck." No doubt the vote was very close. Interesting note about this year's vote: Did anybody vote for Carlson?

    Well, they cited Carlson's previous accomplishments and his SEC points leading record in the write-up for being named a 2017 finalist: Link But, apparently it didn't carry enough weight.
  9. Carlson Runner-up Again For Lou Groza Award

    One other note -- Salt Lake City has an average elevation of 4,327 feet above sea level. Think that might be a factor in kicking long field goals?
  10. Carlson Runner-up Again For Lou Groza Award

    True. Carlson was 4-7 from 50+. Of the 7 misses he had, 2 were blocked. Were they the result of the kicker or the (lack of) blocking. Career stats show consistency vs a flash-in-the-pan. Career stats especially matter if they lead to the all-time SEC career points scored leader. Just sayin ...

  12. On to UCF

    Congrats to UGA for winning the SEC. Even if uat or UGA wins it all, they'll still have an non-eraseable, decisive loss on their record delivered by ... AU. If I come across any a-hole fan-boi of either school that wants to start anything (there are some up here in the NW but thankfully not many,) I pledge here & now to remind them of which school administered their respective butt-whippings. That's how bragging rights work.
  13. On to UCF

    It's been a roller coaster of a season, that's for sure. Not winning the conference title and getting into the CFB Playoff was deeply disappointing, no doubt, but dayyum ... what's the point of dwelling on it? We lost. The bragging rights over our 2 biggest rivals in a year when they were at their best is nothing to downplay, and the bowl game is all that's left this year. Let's get behind it. WDE
  14. rushing the field

    Yes. Little known SEC rule: if the fans "rush" the field single-file as in elementary-school-fire-drill fashion, no fine can be levied.
  15. SCOTUS to Hear Baker vs. Gay Couple Case

    Your view is pretty close to what this baker has stated: I've always thought these kind of cases (similar cases involving florists & bakers in WA & OR) are 1st Amendment issues at their core. I predict the SC will side with the "artist."
