  1. It will be interesting to see how the NCAA crawfish out of this (pun intended).
  2. I read Bobby Dillon was elected the NFL Hall of Fame. I worked for him at Wilsonart. Bobby Dillon was president of Wilsonart while I was IT Director of Training and Curriculum. On several occasions I had the pleasure to travel with Bobby Dillon to other Wilsonart facilities. It was always a great experience. Bobby played for Temple High School and then for The University of Texas, where he was an All-American. From there he was drafted by the Green Bay Packers. Despite only having one working eye, Bobby Dillon is the all-time Green Bay Packer's career interceptions leader with 52. He had 9 interceptions in one season three times, with a stretch between 1953–58 where he had 48 interceptions, averaging 8 interceptions per season. He was the second player in NFL history to record 50 interceptions. Bobby was a strong and inspiring leader at work. We had many fun and friendly conversations away from work where his grandson and my son were on the same soccer team. Bobby Dillon passed away last August. I'm pleased the NFL is recognizing his talent on the field, as I and others, recognize his talent and leadership off the field. PS - I still have his playing card.
  3. I don't think anyone is surprised. To me what is amusing is the timing of this news. The timing wasn't to due diligence or "abundance of care and respect." This is a Jerry Jones marketing ploy. If he made the decision like other NFL teams his team would be buried with other team's announcements. The decision couldn't be made on Tuesday or Wednesday because that story would get buried and shared with college bowl games. Can't release the news on Saturday or Sunday because there are NFL playoffs. So Thursday's meeting was canceled and "sources" (how convenient) release the news this afternoon. Lets see how many times JJ is interviewed and on major networks talking about his new vision for the Cowboys. I wonder if Vegas has an O/U on number of JJ interviews for Friday and Saturday morning.
  4. Although my post is how I feel, I like your post better. To use part of the line from Judge Chamberlain Baller from the movie "My Cousin Vinny," your post is lucid, intelligent, concise and to the point.
  5. Anything to discredit The University of Texas. The Ohio State should be renamed The Cry Baby U. Day complained at halftime and after the game. tOSU fans accuse SEC officials of cheating and now this story . Those who went to the game when Vince beat tOSU remember how fans reacted and basically terrorizing the streets and cars. Some of my friends were actually afraid for their lives and their wives and girlfriends. Then the idiot coach that Urban lied about to CYA is a truly unstable. Speaking of Urban, what a joke. I have come out of OU games knowing there are drunks (on both sides) and talking trash and some looking for fights, but none of the toothless Okies turned over cars. The Ohio State University to THE Cry Baby Tantrum U.
  6. Just a thought...Lincoln Riley went to OU from East Carolina. I can only imagine how the gurus on all of the paid boards (and even here) if TH hired some one from a small school without all of the glitz and glory from a big school. I'm still amused at crowd at OB (when I was a member there) snickered and jeered when Dabo Swinney offered to bring his whole staff with him to Texas. Meanwhile Texas hired Charlie Strong.
  7. Somebody better call AAA. There is a broken down Lincoln (Riley) on the side of the road in Atlanta.
  8. FWIW - I was at that game last week. He played right before half. I didn't see him before that play so it is possible he was a late arrival, but he did play right before half.
  9. Bbizarre play and game with the misdirection handoff on the kickoff for a touchdown. Yes, there is a lot of talent on the field.
  10. Personally, I don't care if he (or whoever is the next OC is) looks like Yoda as long as his offense can light up the scoreboard.
  11. The kickoff return for a touchdown by Denton Ryan, on a misdirection handoff, was used by DKR. However, the officials then ruled it was illegal and Texas stopped using it. I never understood why they ruled it illegal.
  12. In response to: I have a HUGE problem that Herman did not search for a DC. I have never been fully on the Herman train(1 foot on, 1 foot off). 2nd foot is at the edge now. This is an unacceptable coaching search. Then later add: add something positive to the convo If anyone wanted an example of the proverbial idiom of "the pot calling the kettle black," there it is.
