  1. Don't be an ass and misquote me. Certainly you have better things to do, like to sit around and watch tapes of the Big 12, PAC 12, ACC (other than Clemson) piling up all of their playoff wins.
  2. I have no way of knowing, but I think that McDermott has far more power than Beane, and makes the decisions to opt for corners over blockers and weapons for Josh. Morse is very good but he isn't getting younger and has a pretty substantial history of injuries. Josh Allen is GREAT. He is (as we all know) the face of the franchise. We MUST protect him above all else. It is also quite obvious that we need help at wide receiver. That said, would a first round safety surprise you? Btw, @BADOLBILZhas been telling us the same things for months. This should have been clear to McDermott long ago. Jmo.
  3. Round and round, the cut of the plow in the furrowed field Seasons round, the bushels of corn and the barley meal Broken ground, open and beckoning to the spring Black dirt live again The plowman is broad as the back of the land he is sowing As he dances the circular track of the plow ever knowing That the work of his days measures more than the planting and growing Let it grow, let it grow, greatly yield
  4. Then you shouldn't have wasted your time with your trite post to me. Be well.
  5. Congrats to you for Florida State perhaps coming out of their long term doldrums. I remember the feeling when The Crimson Tide pretty much sucked. That said, the ACC IS a second rate conference, SO bad that it enables Clemson to coast into the playoffs seemingly at will, although even Clemson is not all that this season now are they? And for the record I do not root for other SEC teams, other than perhaps Arkansas because I lived there for a couple of months and was treated well. I don't care if Georgia wins or loses against TCU or USC. It is just my sincere opinion that Georgia will dog walk either one of those teams. This is my opinion to which I would seem to be allowed have, just as you are entitled to yours. Oh and if you want to compare the programs of Alabama and FSU, do start here if you will.
  6. Maybe so. But what you don't seem to get is that The Crimson Tide are not handed anything. Saban tells the world his coaching methods in virtually every interview. He isn't keeping secrets wrt what he feels that it takes to win. Hell, even McDermott runs around talking about the "process," a term invented by Saban. The trick is to work as hard as Saban does. Saban loses his OC, DC, and untold other assistants constantly. You know this very well, whereas even Daboll was another Saban rehab. He has former assistants all over the NCAA making millions upon millions of dollars. And let me say once again, NIL has REALLY changed things. College football players running the streets with hundreds of thousands of dollars in their pockets has altered the dynamics of the game. These kids are harder to motivate. If you don't believe me ask Jimbo Fisher, who had the highest ranked recruiting class of all time and is what, 4-7? Coach Saban must adapt to this and I'm sure that he can and will. One last thing....Oklahoma is not the garden spot of the USA, and neither is Alabama!!! It isn't like being in Alabama offers the kids an exciting atmosphere like USC perhaps. My point is that other teams have a big recruiting edge over Alabama (and Okla. St.) in terms of location. Anyway, I'm just a fan enjoying the ride.
  7. Alabama had a rough (10 win) season. This by the way was the 15th time in a row that they won 10 games. Not so bad for a team that was average at best when the universally hated Coach Saban took over. You see, as a lifelong Crimson Tide Fan I am not forced to sing the blues over feeling like I was screwed over in 2011, or some other abstract year. If you read my posts on this thread, you will NOT find one in which I said that this Alabama team deserves a playoff spot. On the contrary, I said before and will say again that they do not. Now, if they woud have pulled out a win in one of their 2 losses (by a combined 4 points mind you), I would be singing a different tune, at least until the conference championship game. Next year will also be a question mark with the loss of Bryce Young. I am hoping that an improved OL and DL will help make up for the loss, at least to some degree. Either way, they will be able to compete with the best of teams. They have to, just by virtue of playing in the SEC. Btw, please do tell us about your favorite team.
  8. Son she said Have I got a little story for you What you thought was your daddy Was nothin' but a fool While you were sittin' Home alone at age thirteen Your real father was dyin' Sorry you didn't see him But I'm glad we talked, Oh I, oh, I'm still alive Hey, hey, I, oh, I'm still alive Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
  9. You just won't stop with these meaningless bowl games, will you? I don't even want Bryce Young to play in a bowl game this season. I would rather see young players get reps at QB and other positions. I guess this is because I am an Alabama Fan and can understand true success. Alabama wins titles, not some bowl games with nothing really to gain. You otoh, as a fan of a so-so at best team need lower forms of success to cling to but that's ok; I suppose I would be the same way if the team I care about ranged from being a bottom feeder to just plain OK. It's all good. Keep grasping at straws. I have been doing this as a Bills fan for decades. I actually have watched the scoreboard a couple of times hoping (for your sake) that OK St. would win a game. You of course are free to disbelieve this. I want you to see how good it feels when the team you support wins a championship. Maybe we will both experience this with the Bills this year. 👍🏈
  10. I might be wrong. If so, sorry. I posted what I heard. Still, the thought of TCU having a tough schedule is a joke. There are probably 6 or 7 better teams in the SEC. If Georgia plays TCU they will dog walk them.
  11. I heard the rankings that I quoted on Sirius ESPNU. Did you read my post? I clearly said that I don't think that Alabama will or should get in barring miracles. I fully understand that they have to allow lesser teams in there to maintain fan interest, thus TCU and USC. Do tell me, what chance do you give TCU or USC to beat Georgia?
  12. I love you girl, with all my heart and soul I can't understand why you treat me cold Your every wish, girl, is my command And that's why I can't seem to understand why Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue I'm askin' you girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue So blue, eh baby, but that's alright
  13. TCU will be this season's Cincinnatti. In fact, I don't think that they are as good as Cincinnatti was last season. The truth is, TCU has a garbage schedule, just like USC. In fact, Ohio State's schedule ws ranked 69th in terms of difficulty, whereas Alabama's was ranked 9th. Before you accuse me, let me openly state that I am not making a case at this point for Alabama to make the playoffs. They lost 2 games by a total of 4 points that they could have and should have won. IF they had pulled out a victory in one of those games then yes, they would have deserved a playoff spot. At this point, they would need too many miracles.
  14. I am starting to feel like Brian Branch is better than Battle.
  15. Up on the Blue Ridge Mountain, there I'll take my stand Up on the Blue Ridge Mountain, there I'll take my stand Rifle on my shoulder, 6 shooter in my hand Lord, Lord, I've been all around this world Lulu, my Lulu, come and open the door Lulu, my Lulu, come and open the door Before I have to walk on in with my old 44 Lord, Lord, I've been all around this world
  16. I bought a ticket to the world But now I’ve come back again Why do I find it hard to write the next line? I want the truth to be said I, I-I-I, I I know this much is true I, I-I-I, I I know this much is true
  17. Why are they playig this time of year. Don't they usually play in the summer?
  18. Well, she used to run around, with every man in town She spent all my money, playing her high class game She put me out, it was a pity how I cried Tables turn and now it's her turn to cry Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
  19. Yeah, Bills Fans never know which loss will really set them off, or perhaps even why. I got very, very angry after the game where Stevie Johnson dropped the wide open, game winning TD pass, even before he blamed God. I remember being even more angry at that than I was at the Chiefs debacle. Truthfully, as a Bills Fan I am damaged to the point where I absolutely did not expect them to hold the lead, and I suspect I am far from being alone. Time flies. I am now in my sixties and can no longer afford to get torn apart by what the Bills do. The team plays a zone defense and has 2 first round corners. Our safeties are great but not getting healthier or younger. Will they draft a first round safety? Probably, and they might even trade up to do so. Should I allow myself to get angry to the point that my blood pressure goes up? Josh makes the team much more fun to watch but he needs more receivers and more blockers. Will they address these dire needs in a meaningful way? They might, and they very well might not but I can't control what they do, but; I would rather not get angry to the point that I need open heart surgery. In summary, I understand the pain that the OP feels. My advice is to look at the bright side because these actually ARE some wonderful things about being a Bills fan: 1) You and your children will become more loyal and used to handling adversity. Sounds trite? Yes but I believe this. 2) Bills Fans are really a fun group of nice, very funny people. I made some wonderful friends at the Stadium. 3) On this board, there are several true football experts. I feel lucky to converse with them. 4) That unknown exists.....how will I react when/if they DO win the Super Bowl? In my case, I am really not sure. 20 years ago I would have dived into a deep snow drift, drunk lol. Now, I really don't know what I would do with all of that joy. The above is just to name a few. Good luck to the OP. I for one would welcome you back. Just do all you can to relax and downshift a gear or 2. It isn't healthy to get THAT upset. GO BILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. Hello, stranger It seems so good to see you back again How long has it been?

  22. She stuck up for Mussberger and said that she was not the least bit offended. I'm not making a case for right or wrong. I don't really care, but; I clearly remember her stating publicly that it didn't bother her at all.
  23. That night we fell in love Beneath the stars above That was a lovely summer night Remember then, then Then, then, then Remember Re-mem-mem Re-mem-mem-mem-ber Re-mem-mem Re-mem-mem-mem-ber Re-mem-mem Re-mem-mem-mem-ber Then, then, remember then
  24. Learn to work the saxophone (I) I play just what I feel Drink Scotch whiskey all night long And die behind the wheel They got a name for the winners in the world (I) I want a name when I lose They call Alabama the Crimson Tide Call me Deacon Blues (Deacon Blues)
