    Hooverhog got a reaction from utparothed in Coaching Changes, Rumors, Misc.   
    I agree about the primary purpose of any university should always be academics first, but I also agree that Tom Herman shouldn't give a crap about what the academics feel about him.  He's the football coach, not the professor, of these players.  His primary purpose should be the football team, and I hope he get's his head outta his a@@ and figures out what he needs to do to get this program back on track....

    Thats great. What does that have to do with academics having influence on athletics? No one is forcing anyone to determine which is more important, although I challenge you to fill DKR with a science fair. lol
    Athletics, particularly football, pays the bills. Academics should know this otherwise they're not real academic to begin with.
    I'll remind you of what happened the last time academics took over the decision making for UT football. It was a vast desert of nothing.

    Whoa...isn't that a tad bit harsh? He's just a sophomore. He could become a short yardage specialist. He has the build and running style for that. JMO

    Unfortunately, that's the world we live in.  I coach HS Bball and it's no different at that level.  I have Freshman that think because they do well at the freshman games then they should get starters minutes at Varisty.  Some of them have talent, but they will get destroyed at that level because they're not strong enough or they lack in-game awareness.  Every once in a blue moon we get that player that is ready, but that is rare.  It also doesnt help that I'm constantly getting emails from parents expecting their kid to get moved up or they might not play next year.  Yeah, you read that right.  Some parents just arent logical and inflate the egos even more.  I tell them fine, if your kid doesnt want to compete again next year then they wont play for this team.  This is a team and I'm putting the best compliment of players on the floor at any given time.  One parent told me I was holding their freshman kid back.  Whatever!

    one point...on that last CJ touchdown...what a catch....but why was pass interference not called/....That guy was tackling Johnson for 2 seconds before the ball got there....It would have been declined of course, but that had to be called.

    Hooverhog got a reaction from Bear19 in John Bonney and Eric Cuffee to transfer   
    I like the fact that Herman didn't block the move.  Bonney was never a problem.  I always thought it was pretty sorry for a head coach to block a player from going somewhere else.  If they were good enough to start for you then you would start them.   If you're worried about a non-starter going to someone in your conference, then you got bigger problems...  Just my opinion...

    That took guts to post on this male dominated board.  God bless you, young man.  Prayers are with you and all of us.
    There can be a fine line between appreciation for beauty and humor, and fantasy and lust.  Most of us fit somewhere in the gray area.  I believe SHA's intentions are in the first category.
    As much as I have enjoyed the Kate gifs, I am just as happy with Daniel's BOOM!
    There are other sites for provocative women.  Sorry guys, hate me if you wish.
    BTW, SHO, SHA is a  very smart guy.  My bet would be that a naked pic of Kate would be only from the neck up...

    Hooverhog reacted to Coot in give Charlie time   
    Charlie Strong should get the 5 years on his contract.  He should be given the time it was suggested he would get to recruit his guys and win games at a power 5 conference level.  Not giving him that time is, in my opinion, a sign of lack of dedication to long term goals in the service of hoped for short term quick fixes.  I, for one, have more faith in Charlie Strong than in the unknown, as yet unhired "savior" who is likely to follow.  But then I'm old and not very smart.
