  1. Man, I fear the Colts and Chargers far, FAR more than the Raiders or Patriots. Mac Jones can be had and isn't much of a dynamic passer nor do they have weapons at WR comparably as good as ours. Or at RB (at least not yet). The Raiders I don't fear AT ALL. We kicked their asses once, we'll do it again. The Colts though, with Taylor, a presumably healthy/return from grievance leave offensive line that is generally speaking the best overall unit in the league at run blocking, and a helluva good defense too. The Chargers I fear for obvious reasons, although I wouldn't be terrified of a Herbert v Burrow rematch either, as I am sure Burrow would relish the opportunity to set the record straight. I guess I fear the Colts the most. That is, if they finish strong and healthy.
  2. My favorite on-air moment with Al Michaels...cutting a turducken with his bare hand!!! LOL....
  3. What amount of money would it take to lure Luke Kuechly out of retirement and play for his hometown team?
  4. Uglier Still: That Bell's penalty was even called in the first place, and if it has to be, you HAVE to call the Niners for an even more egregious violation of the rule later in the game after a big hit. Same ref on both plays, too. *Wasn't Mixon really sick and almost didn't play as a result? It seemed clear to me that he didn't have that burst he normally has when he's earning YAC early in the game, AND that the o-line wasn't doing him any favors either, which makes Zac's inexplicable decision to take the ball out of Burrow's hands 1st and 10 at the 49ers 26yd line even more hard to swallow or understand.
  5. Out of all our draft picks, I am most excited about this one's potential to immediately provide much needed pass rushing for our defense.
  6. Thanks! I did/do have some health issues I face, but I face them with a grin on my face. Outside of pain, I cannot let life get me down as I fear my time is short. Plus I am dancing with the gummy bears 100% of the time. It helps. A LOT, lol.
  7. I have been absent from the board for awhile now, mostly drive-by posts in some Bengals FB groups is all the Bengals talk I've been engaged in lately. I also remember Onyx well, and it was through my FB friendship with Jamie that I even knew that Jason Holland was the same person as Onyx here, and it took Jamie posting a memoriam to him yesterday on FB that I was even able to connect the dots. It makes me wish I had known all along, and I could have engaged him more. He and I locked horns a couple times, but nothing too serious. I wish him well in the next world. I'll be around more. This virus is very distracting to routines and lives. And deadly.
  8. 31-0 is a pretty incredible feat, regardless of the way things turn out in the tournament. Obviously anything less than a championship at this point would be considered a failure, but it's so damn hard to win it all, no matter your regular season record. Like Old says, the pressure just mounts and mounts. The best thing Cal can do is keep his team as loose as possible and play down the importance of the games and treat them like any other.
  9. With the twins and Cauley-Stein coming back, not only will they gain the (rare for Kentucky) value of their experience, it means they will have NINE 5-star recruits on their roster next season. If they aren't the pre-season #1 I will be shocked.
  10. Lance McCallister on 700 WLW a bit ago: "How did this team manage to win 27 games?"
  11. UK has 6 of the top 18 recruits in the nation coming next year. All five star guys. Amazing.
  12. I totally agree. interesting how the Cats went from champs to the NIT in only one year. But that's the business model not only for Calipari but for many big time schools in NCAA basketball. I really wish there was a way to keep players from bouncing after only one year (and coaches too). It's hard to follow the game anymore. It's worse than free agency in pro sports. You can't get to know a roster anymore. I can't keep up with who the players even are at this stage. It sucks.
  13. [quote name='Jason' timestamp='1354563793' post='1188331'] From 8 to out?! Wow. [/quote] They'll be back. The talent is there.
  14. [quote name='scharm' timestamp='1352917644' post='1180737'] The talent is unquestioned. The coming together of the talent is the fun part. Hopefully by mid Feb the familar big blue buzzsaw will be in full force. They look fast and athletic and at the same time appear to be playing not at full speed or with confidence the whole time. [/quote] I'm not worried. Calipari is going to have young teams all the time and they aren't going to play very well in mid-November compared to how they will play come February. They just need some time to jell.
  15. Yay, we won the national title again already! Whoop!
  16. [quote name='B.A.B.' timestamp='1333436672' post='1114893']pic i took with it winding down. so so so epic. [img]http://i39.tinypic.com/33elnoj.jpg[/img][/quote] Incredible! Great pic!
  17. Shit's gettin' real up in the Bluegrass state yo! http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/tournament/2012/story/_/id/7747670/2012-final-four-louisville-cardinals-fan-punches-kentucky-wildcats-fan-dialysis-clinic Only in Kentucky....
  18. Its going to be a hard-fought game no matter what. This has never happened before in the state of Kentucky. Its going to be ridiculous. No blowout, down to the wire.
  19. Kentucky versus Louisville is so incredibly awesome for the state of Kentucky. Its going to be like the Hatfields and McCoys all over again, splitting families asunder, ripping apart the moral fabric of the state....fucking sweet! You're going down, red team and your dago wop coach!
  20. UK is looking like a juggernaut right now. They better not overlook Baylor though. Lots of depth and talent on that team.
  21. [quote name='scharm' timestamp='1331575410' post='1104531']Vandy will love that SEC Tourney win for another 50 years.[/quote] I'd like UK to play them again in the tournament. We need to exact revenge on UCONN for last year too. And hooking up and beating Duke would be sweet as well. UK didn't get an easy draw beyond the first round (I hope we play the Hilltoppers).
  22. I'm glad they lost. It doesn't affect their tournament (the one that matters) seeding and it will inject a dose of needed humility into the squad. I expect UK to roar into the tournament all pissed off and ready to crush other teams.
  23. [quote name='JC' timestamp='1322937117' post='1070232'] Anthony Davis (Whom should be starting on a NBA team right [b]meow[/b]. He's unreal.) [/quote] Interesting Freudian typo right there...
