    I agree with the draft experts: durability issues, leadership issues, loved Charlie Weiss issues....

    Cribbs is a beast and he is from Ohio, so it is a hometown thing. Holmgren has already started the turnaround. We ended the season with five straight victories (including one over Pittsburgh).

    Ok that makes sense but still he was their only real big threat last year.
    Ya but the Steelers had a bad year last year. Troy Polamalu will be back making big plays this year.

  4. Dez Bryant (oklahoma ST) going to Dallas.....YEAH!!!

  5. Really surprised Tim "He-blow" went in the first round...wow!! In his defense, Josh McDaniels should to a good job moulding him to a good NFL QB...hell, he made Orton pretty good.

  6. Fellow Gators (Spikes and Cunningham) go to the Pats!

    Evolutionary Muse - Inspire to Evolve
    Legendary


  7. The Chiefs' rookie squad is a veritable SEC all-star team: Berry from Tennessee in the 1st round, followed today by McCluster from Ole Miss and Arenas from Bama.

    Big "Mount" Cody and the Ravens looks like a good pairing.
    RTR.

  8. I haven't been this excited about a Browns draft since I was in the womb.

    Durability issues? Really? After his first season of taking an absolute beating in all games? Playing with an injured ankle for the whole season? I would say he is pretty [email protected] durable.

    Obviously he can lead a college team...we shall see about an NFL one. Its a different ballgame out there. And his off site fight; hell every red-blooded American male right out of high school and into college has been in his fair share of fistfights. Starting them, finishing them, or both. Or neither.

    The Charlie Weis thing troubles anyone who doesn't like Weis. Myself included.

    So those 3 things classify him IYO as "trash"?

    It isn't a personal thing, so don't get offended. I just thought there were better quarterbacks for the Browns (who haven't had a good qb since Bernie Kosar). We got McCoy way later than he should have gone. Holmgren is a genious.

    None taken. I think maybe Bradford isn't so durable. That was proven when he came back from surgery. He was "ready" so they said, but they were wrong. I hope for his sake that he can withstand the pounding he's gonna take in the NFL. That's a LOT of money to pay someone who is injured.

    All in all though, I am glad to see that Clausen has gone to a place where they can actually block, and keep people off his *ss. If they do this, and he can't produce, well, he would be a flop. I just don't see that though.

    Sean Lee (PSU)--------> Dallas!!!!!!!!! I love this draft

  13. I'm surprised nobody took Armani Edwards (App ST) earlier....I really like watching him play...i was first turned on to him when he embarassed Michigan.

  15. I'm interested to hear theories on how the SEC overlooked the fact that the last six conference opponents on Alabama's schedule will be coming off a bye week. That's quite an oversight.

    Youre way behind the times on that one. I know Bammers that have been complaining for a long time about that.

    Also, interesting article in SI. Its about what would happen if the Big 10 expands to include more teams. The SEC would get OK ST, OU, Texas, and Texas A&M in their scenario. Can we say that Dixie would rule college football...forever?

    No, I've known about it since the schedule was released. I do monitor the Bama boards. I'm just curious as to what other non-Tide fans think the reason may be: conspiracy (if so, I can't figure out who the hell benefits), oversight, or just coincidence?

    Mike Slive will ensure that the SEC remains THE preeminent football conference. He's been very up front on that. I have mixed feelings on "super-conferences" that will surely rule college ball in the future.

    can you explain those mixed feelings please? i'm interested.

  19. No one cares about Penn State. They will get whipped by Bama.

    Having 12 teams in a conference allows for playing 2/3 of your league opponents during the season, and perhaps meeting another conference opponent in a championship game (Alabama and Florida over the last two years, for instance). Worst case scenario: You dodge 4 conference teams in any season. With the current setup, it's not very likely that many of those teams would be ranked.

    Now imagine the possibility that TT pointed out: Alabama, Florida, LSU, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, S. Carolina, Auburn, Texas, Oklahoma, Okla. State, Texas A&M, etc. all in the same 16-team super-conference. Increasing the number of league games furthers the odds of a loss, thereby hurting the chances of having a conference team represented in the BCS title game. Keeping it at 8-9 conference games per season wouldn't allow for playing approx. 70% of your conference, as the current 12-team setup does. It would be more like 50%.

    Can you imagine Alabama winning this hypothetical conference and not having to face Texas or Florida to do it? It's a recipe for more college football d-r-a-m-a.
    RTR.

  21. Not when we have a playoff system.

    The two would definitely have to happen concurrently.

    It would be soooo sick. Take top 4 from the super conferences. OMG. 12 team playoff out of that.

    A 12-team playoff would require some teams getting bye weeks. Make it 16.

    That was like the WAC back in the day when it had like 16+ teams or something ridiculous like that. It was pretty whack.

    Now the WAC just plain sucks. All their good teams went to the Mountain West.

  26. well since i just read through all the posts and didnt see any fellow UGA fans, here goes. GO DAWGS!!! yeah, we have not had the best showing lately on the field, but im a die hard DAWG fan and am currently attending UGA. cant wait for this season to start up. should be quite fun to see our new defense considering we got Grantham from the Cowboys.
