Friday afternoon update

Everyone is talking about the running game, but I think the game comes down to throwing it. I know this is truly contrarian, (and makes me sound like Gary Danielson), but I think the quarterbacks are going to have to throw for over 250 yards to win this game. Yes, both teams are good at running the ball, and they will get their yards. However, as good as the teams are they will need big plays on these defenses—both of which are good at getting off the field.

Earlier in the week I tossed out a score of 24-21 in favor of Florida. I feel much better today about Alabama’s chances to be on the winning side of the scoreboard. It is going to come down to pass protection, and I like Alabama’s much better than Florida’s.

World Cup
I hate soccer. What I hate even more than soccer is the Yankee liberals at ESPN trying to force it down my throat. I’m not interested in some anti-American sport that teaches eye-foot coordination. The great American sports teach the martial virtues—the things that make a warrior, or the skills like eye-hand coordination. So you can keep your sissy soccer.

Oh wait, I think I’m going to pull for Brazil. Dear God please let Brazil play. And if anybody has tickets near this soccer fan, I’ll happily buy. Just drop me an email.

LSU is cheating worse than Auburn
According to a report out of Baton Rouge (via Roll Bama Roll), “LSU junior defensive lineman Akiem Hicks allegedly received money from wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy to transfer to LSU from Sacramento City Community College in California, The Daily Reveille learned on Thursday.

“This transaction led to an NCAA violation that a source familiar with the situation said became known to the team following the Arkansas game last Saturday.”

So you will know, the original report has been pulled without any word from the publisher to explain the story’s removal.

    funny shula story.

    mike shula got javy BECAUSE nobody else recruited him. not because of any keen eye for talent. (translation: he got lucky) i vehemently deny mike shula did anything any other coach – recruiting, coaching or otherwise – could have done BECAUSE HE WAS AT ALABAMA WITH IT’S BUILT IN ADVANTAGES.

    a ham sandwich could have done what mike shula did. was brett favre highly recruited??? NO. that’s why curly hallman got a shot at him. favre got hallman the lsu gig which he promptly bombed out on.

    nick saban was hired at lsu and did what the others, hallman included, couldn’t do. he’s done it again following shula.

    i challenge someone to try and make a rational argument that nick saban couldn’t have recruited at the pace he does because of the disadvantage he would have suffered by following the mike price shitstorm. i would submit nick saban would have done what he’s doing now following the program being shutdown.

    i love javy as much as the next ‘bama fan. but he wasn’t just overlooked by the florida schools. the recruiting services didn’t think much of him either. javy was a one star until alabama started showing some interest. he almost overnight became a three star.

    did someone suddenly see the light about javy??? no. he suddenly became “hot” BECAUSE of alabama.

    mike shula was the bosses son promoted because of his last name. if the truth were known ray fucking perkins probably did more coaching of that team than shula did. nothing special happened during that four years. mike shula was at the helm of a program that treaded water before finally (and thankfully) drowning in ’06.

    nothing more, nothing less.

    (and a fluff piece from the miami herald designed to make don shula sleep better isn’t going to change my mind on that)

    The name Rio De Janeiro comes to mind. A friend of my brothers was offered a position in Brazil, he went down to check it out, came home packed his things and was gone. Brazil has a worldwide reputation for beautiful women.

    I’ve been all over Latin America. Brazil doesn’t have women any prettier than Mexico. They just have more of them because it’s a more populous country. Hell, I’m 60 and I have 40 part time girlfriends that look as good as her and a few that look better! RTR!

    FINEBAMMER — Didn’t Shula mess up recruiting Jemarcus Russell out of Mobile or was he LSU bound anyways?
