Instead, the Crimson Tide did their thing. Just like football.
And I think CK put it best -
Never really had anything against the Tide. Growing to hate them.
Yes. The hate is starting to boil for real.
Other than Herschel, who is your favorite Bulldog and why?Tuesday's news really got me amp'd up to tell you the truth. I'm excited that the opener is a nationally televised contest. But we pretty much expected that with two teams that will be highly ranked, most likely. Still, it was like a rich echo in the cavernous valley of the off season, chanting my name and telling me that college football will be back soon. (soon...soon...soon...)
Scott Woerner. Although I grew up in Athens, I was raised in a Clemson household. Dad often took me to their games when I was young to show off his alma mater. But Woerner single-handedly beat Clemson in 1980, returning a punt 68 yards for a touchdown and an interception 98 yards to set up another score. He's the player I've looked up to the longest as a fan of college football. I love to watch my dad twitch uncomfortably in his seat when I simply mention Woerner's name. Number 19 played with skill, smarts and a ton of heart. Damn Good Dawg!*
HillBillys, methinks thou doth protest too much. Or perhaps not enough. Regardless, it comes across as sour grapes from not winning the game on the field and reluctantly flexing some administrative muscle instead. (Alabama has won six straight in the series and seven of the last eight. During that span Tennessee has averaged just over 10 points a game to the Tide's four touchdowns.)Last year, when the parent of a prospective UT student told school officials he’d heard the loud Crimson Tide cheer while visiting with his teen, UT decided the rival alumni group had overstayed its welcome.“We’re sure the fine folks at Alabama would not want us singing ‘Rocky Top’ in their admissions office,” said Karen Simsen, a UT spokeswoman. “We want our visitor’s center to be all about UT, campus traditions and what it feels like to be a student here. So we had to talk to the (alumni group) about how we have a new use for the building.”
Dear Kentucky -- your bourbon is better than your basketball team. CelebratoryGATA! Thanks to all who showed up and sent the "sea of blue" streaming out into the Athens night earlier than they anticipated. Now, hopefully Bama's five buckets short!

Jones’ departure has opened up a starting spot for the Bulldogs. DeLoach is working at first-team strongside linebacker and could join another member of the 2012 signing class, Jordan Jenkins, as starters at outside linebacker“It’s going to be a big spring to prove to the coaches that I can be out there with the best of them as a starter,” DeLoach said.
“I think he’s a really big, athletic guy,” defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said. “I’ve been really impressed with him in workouts. … We’re going to play him at SAM linebacker and let him be a physical presence there. I’ve been really pleased with his progress, his movements. He was in the meeting room last year so he kind of understands all the things, he just hasn’t done it as much as other people. …He’s a guy that we’ll be looking for him to be a contributor for us in the fall.”The other day we talked about some of the size differential expected with the defensive changes specifically. Considering Jarvis played at about 245 and Vasser is about ten pounds lighter, that holds true. But with DeLoach's size and Jenkins who is now up to around 260 lbs, the "SAM" spot could be getting bigger. Hopefully the competition can produce Jarvis-like numbers.
A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago.
Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?"
After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake."

Again, let the naysayers and nearsighted talking heads blather on and on about losing guys like Jarvis and Rambo and Jenkins and Commings. These new guys are listening. And I believe they're hungry.But unlike 2010, Grantham at least has the advantage that the defensive staff and the vast majority of his players already understand the concepts involved with his 3-4 scheme. For them, it's simply a matter of sharpening that knowledge to the point where they can step into larger roles and play with competence and confidence."We've got some guys that have been here for a while that it's their turn to show what they can do and we've got some guys that came in midyear. As coaches, we're excited to get started," Grantham said. "The big thing that we always go back to is one, fundamentals at our position, and two, learning to compete and play aggressive. I think you have to win a position before you can help us win a ballgame. And then finally learning what to do."If we can get those things done, I think that carries over to the fall because when we play aggressive and compete and get after it, we create turnovers and we're hard to score on -- and those are the things that we've done pretty well the last two years."

Richt said he sees Mayes, John Taylor and John Atkins as sizable players at the position, but trimmer.“We are definitely not as big up front, but we’re pretty quick and athletic,” Richt said. “It will be interesting to see how we’ll hold up against a smash-mouth team as the season goes on. We certainly have some guys that can really run.”
