Late correction for pmason03. 

After re-reading a couple of my posts I only specified  last 4-5-6 years in one of them, in reference to the Big Least.

 In the other post  I said "past "which would rightly lead you to bring up Miami in the early 2000's.

Thus the reading comprehension jab should be directed at myself.

My bad!

@pmason03 Reading comprehension my friend, 

That's why I specified the Big Least of the past 5-6 years.  Talking about the time after Miami and others bolted for greener pastures.

I don't really have a big problem with OSU being there. It's how this terrible system is set up. 

Just hate to see another Blowout because a vastly inferior and highly overrated Big Ten tam takes the field.

I was speaking of Columbus in general as being home of the Buckeyes. Well aware of where BCSCG is being played. 

My point about the Big Least is that had they had an undefeated team in the past they would have likely been jumped by a one loss SEC team or even a PAC 12 / Big Twelve team and rightly so IMO.

Ohio State is no better in the singular and the Big Ten as a conference is just as weak and tepid as the Big Least of days of yore.

My be a flip flopper, but his take is spot on about tOSU.  Big Ten is dog shit. OSU best of a sorry lot. Would be kind of like awarding a BCS CG to the winner of the Big Least in any of the last three or four years.

If OSU goes it will just subject the rest of the country to watching them get their teeth kicked in per usual  in Columbus.

Hamilton was in over his head but Adams is spot on in saying Hamilton was right in showing him the door..

Game had passed Phat Phil by.

No coincidence that he still hasn't gotten another job.

Kudos to Adams for calling Fulmer out. 

1 year, 8 months ago on Knoxville Columnist Blasts Ex-Tennessee Coach Fulmer


Always amusing to see the Tide apologists running amok.


Glad to see CNS make the proper call be it a few days late.


Still nice to see those hooligans get the boot.


Alabama's talent level combined with magnitude  of the program puts them in position to cull immediately for "thugish behavior"


Plenty of capable athletes waiting in the wings to replace the "oh not so dear departed"


Young athletes willing to abide by the rules and not consider themselves above the law.

2 years, 1 month ago on Question: How Many Bama Fans Would Have Called For Due Process If Saban Had Acted Immediately?


I was highly critical of the move yesterday. Still think there were better attainable options.  That said I was impressed with Coach Jones today in the presser. Willing to bite tongue for now.

2 years, 4 months ago on Report: Jones Emerges As ‘Front Runner’ For UT Job


 @JamieThornton  @winnerjim 


Agreed Jamie.


Love how people just look at an isolated record without any perspective.


Five years from now Strong will have Louisville as one of the top teams in the ACC and Butch Jones will just be another ex head Coach at UT that failed miserably.

2 years, 4 months ago on Report: Jones Emerges As ‘Front Runner’ For UT Job


     What a disastrous hire if true.  Only thing Butch Jones has proven is that he's a worse Coach than the just departed Dooley.


Only question to play out over the next two - three seasons with this atrocity is whether we can remain ahead of Missouri and Kentucky in a battle to stay out of the SEC East Cellar. 


This impending hire assures Us here in Orange Nation that Georgia, Florida South Carolina and Vandy will remain out of reach as long as all current Coaches remain at their respective institutions.


Tennessee had one of the two worst Coaches in the Conference when Dooley left and now after 19 days being made the punchline of a National Joke we still have one of the two worst Coaches in the SEC.


Nice effin Job Dave Hart. 

2 years, 4 months ago on Report: Jones Emerges As ‘Front Runner’ For UT Job


 @Statesman Good points all Statesman.


Sumlin, Strong, Franklin have all proven to be better coaches and would have been far better coaches for UT had we chose to get involved with any of the trio than so called "proven coaches'that John seems to favor in this case.



Bo Pelini, Butch Jones give me a break.





2 years, 4 months ago on What Next, Tennessee?


W           While I agree with advice to remain calm, please no more mention of Bo Pelini as some type of savior. He's no better coach than the one that just departed.


Hart has badly mismanaged this and will hopefully be forced to the role of puppet during the rest of the search.


There are viable coaches worth checking on but Pelini damn sure isn't one of them.

2 years, 4 months ago on What Next, Tennessee?


Good article John. Glad to see you've finally crossed Florida State of the "Suspects list. This is straight up about the TV sets, demographics and dollars. Florida State nor any other school in a state with a presiding SEC member will be considered.

2 years, 4 months ago on As Folks Work To Figure Out The Big Ten’s Moves, It’s Time For The SEC To Focus In On Six Possible Expansion Partners


Classless Move on Jennings part.


She rode Summitt's coat tails for years.


Past time for her to go.


No surprise that Bitterness and self loathing rise to the forefront with Jennings.


Hope UT and hart crush her in the Courtroom.

 @John at MrSEC  @AllTideUp John just to set the record straight CSN Philly and CSN Northwest are not available via DirecTV either. Never have been.


Comcast has the worst name in the business when it comes to agreements for their Sports networks.


Count me as one very glad that Comcast is out of the loop on this.

Always good to see pablum from the true herd runners like Norton who pisses his pants att the thought of not having 4 cupcakes on his team's schedule.


SEC should immediately mandate a 10 Game Conference schedule. 6 divisional opponents 1 permanent cross rival and rotate the other 6 teams in and out (home and away every two years.

2 years, 9 months ago on Shock Of Shocks: SEC To Consider A 9-Game Schedule Again


Kudos to Saban.


SEC usually stands strong and does the right thing.


Remaining at an 8 game Conference schedule is noting but pure shortsighted chicken shit.


Disappointing to say the least.


Needs to be 9 Confernce Games along with 1 mandated matchup from another BCS level Conference.


2 Games is plenty to match up with the Powder puffs of the CFB world.

2 years, 10 months ago on Bama's Saban Favors A 9-Game SEC Slate


Spot On


SEC needs to get off their ass and immediately mandate a 9 Game Conference schedule along with insisting that a tenth game be scheduled against another BCS level Conference. Hopefully the ACC.


2 Cupcakes is one too many( IMO,)_ but at least it would be viewed acceptably from outsiders looking in.


Current Non Conference schedules  featuring the Jacksonville States of the world and a bunch of directional schools are an effin joke.
