Last night on air with Rece Davis, giant/commentator Trevor Matich emphatically stated that:
Bobby Bowden is still one of the top 5 coaches in America today.
Then, seconds later, paraphrased, Matich essentially said that Florida State doesn't develop their players, and that even with the addition of new coaches Rick Trickett and Jimbo Fisher, the offense wasn't producing. Which would mean they're not good, and most likely (implicitly) as a result of Florida State not having the scouring eye of a coaching CEO examining the nitty-gritty details like player development and the myriad pieces that go into play in the process.
He's huge and also hugely inconsistent with his logic! Trevor Matich! Don't try to outrun him, either. He'll just drop from his plane (which he flies, of course) and crush you like Colossus falling from the X-plane.
Textboook probe at Alabama yields much finger-pointing and imminent proclamations of doom, for complete story see any football benefits scandal-in-a-teapot in Alabama in the past decade. T-minus 10 seconds before an Auburn fan writes in with comment saying "NO SERIOUSLY THEY'RE IN REAL TROUBLE THIS TIME!!!!"
Two Michigan State players have been charged with unarmed robbery in connection with an April incident at a store in East Lansing, showing that once again, when it comes down to crunch time, the Spartans lack weapons and still sometimes get the job done.
Guy Morriss in Waco says you haven't really been paying attention to Baylor football. You caught us! All that losing and not being good will do that. We just lose interest in losing teams we have no emotional investment in, like the entire nation of Bangladesh, for example (though it's really not their fault they're the drainpipe of every major river in South Asia.)
Morriss sounds downright 3rd world politicianesque here, for sure.
"People who aren't around this team don't know what's going on," Morriss added. "All they see is Saturday."
Stupid viewing public, only watching the games put on the field on Saturdays. Bearmeat has ten bucks at 5/2 odds, btw, on what took Mike Machen seven games to emerge as starting qb for the Bears: gonorrhea.
And finally, the Decatur Daily reminds us that Tommy Tuberville and Ed Orgeron, believe it or not, at one time shared living quarters without Tuberville ending up in a gimp outfit or deep fryer. The best piece from the trip down memory lane with Ed and Tubs:
"We had some fantastic players," Orgeron said. "Those were good times."
But in 1992, Orgeron was arrested in a Baton Rouge, La., bar fight.
Although the charges were dropped, Orgeron was placed on probation by the Miami athletic department and did not return to the team the following year, opting to go home to southern Louisiana.
Something seems wrong there...hold on...
Although the charges of crimes against humanity, arson, murder, inciting a riot, conspiracy to undermine the security of the United States, and unlawful use of another human being to injure or kill a human being were dropped, Orgeron was placed on probation by the Miami athletic department and did not return to the team the following year, opting to go home to southern Louisiana.
Ah, much better now.
