I'm scared.......Please Help!!!
Posted: Friday, October 27th, 2006, 10:04 AM • Permalink
I know South Carolina is borderline crummy but this game still scares me Saturday Night. I know SC is 0-3 when those ESPN morons are on campus, but the game scares me. I know Tennessee is dominant in both lines, but I’m still scared. I understand that Tennessee is better at virtually every position on the field but the game still scares me. Think of it this way. No Coker, No Swain, No joke! Speaking of jokes, can you believe Heath (better warp down the playbook) is about to get elected to the United States Congress. That’s incredible. Ain’t that America?

Here’s What Tony Barhardt Of The AJC says about this game.
What does Steve Spurrier have up his sleeve for his old buddy Phillip Fulmer Saturday night in Columbia? Spurrier trotted out some things Auburn had not seen in that Thursday night game on Sept. 28. Recently he said that his quarterback, Syvelle Newton, was starting to throw the ball “pretty much where we want him to.” Talent wise, Tennessee has a big edge in this game but the boys in Vegas are favoring the Vols by less than a touchdown. I’ve got a weird feeling about this game.

And this from Today’s Louisville Currier Journal
South Carolina 21, Tennessee 17 -- Nothing in the world can put a bigger smile on Steve Spurrier's face than beating Phillip Fulmer. And The Ol' Ball Coach has smiled a lot in this rivalry.
The Record Of this guy is Impressive! Overall 65-13 (7-1 last week).
I’m saying, ‘Watch Out!!!’

C-Low has a piece about Erik Ainge regarding the teams transformation from last year. Phillip Fulmer has been called lucky through the years. His best stroke of luck may have come when David Cutcliffe was just sitting there while the ship was sinking last year.

Conforming to Cut:
Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge's transformation under offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe has involved more than just football.

Cutcliffe made it clear to Ainge in their first meeting that it was going to be that way.

"He basically said he was going to change the program," Ainge said. "It wasn't where he wanted it to be, so what better way to show the public and show the guys on the team that we're changing the program by having some changes in the quarterback.

"I turned my hat forwards, took my earrings out, started watching a lot more film, started being the first one to workouts and the last one to leave. And that was a direct result of what he was telling me I needed to do."

I’ve often wondered in light of Ainge’s comments why coaches in this day and age don’t demand more. I would never and I mean never let kids be interviewed on my time with less than appropriate dress and accessories. The earrings would be out. The sideways hats would be off the, the dew rags off, etc. Call that old fashioned but the coaches these days are the keepers of the flame and they are letting it flicker at the behest of a substandard culture. Why? It doesn’t have to be this way! Great for you David Cutcliffe. I’d hire the guy tomorrow if I were UNC and read that in the Tennessean! You best Belie(ve) that !

For the fifth straight day, here goes….Cardinals in 6. Hey Beano and all the American League apologists: Peace Out!!!!

Clemson got off the national stage in a big way last night. They had 3 first downs in the last 3 quarters of last nights game at Blacksburg. The Hokies walked it dry on those clowns! Hate to see a Bowden lose. Always a tough time in my household. Now, Tech is back in the divisional race and Clemson is reeling.

Come On Dogs:
We need Georgia To Upset Florida this weekend but I’m afraid it isn’t happening. Florida’s had a week off to prepare and heal. And Georgia is burnt, tired and bad, which means they will heel. Here’s the injury report from the AJC’s Carter Strickland
Georgia's defense is anything but fresh. This is the ninth game without a bye — Florida had one this past weekend. Middle linebacker Jarvis Jackson, the only player who has proved he knows how to run through a runner, is playing through a painful foot injury. Defensive tackle Ray Gant is basically held together with Ace bandages, trainer tape and dirt. Cornerback Ramarcus Brown has hamstring issues.

I guess The Short Order Cook At The Mickey D’s In Dallas isn’t happy with the Cowboys Offense:
Cowboys Coach Claims Rat in Salad
DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Todd Haley is suing a suburban McDonald's, claiming his wife and the family's live-in baby sitter found a dead rat in a salad they took home and began to eat.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in state district court seeks $1.7 million in damages, The Dallas Morning News reported on its Web site.

In addition to Haley, the Cowboys' passing game coordinator who got in a well-publicized shouting match with receiver Terrell Owens earlier this month, the suit was also filed on behalf of his wife Christine and the family's au pair, Kathryn Kelley.

A message left for McDonald's Corp. spokesman Walt Riker on Thursday evening was not immediately returned.

According to the lawsuit, Christine Haley and Kelley had eaten part of the salad purchased June 5 at a McDonald's in Southlake before the rat was discovered. The women became violently ill and endured long-lasting physical injuries, the lawsuit said.

Believed to be a juvenile roof rat, the rodent was about 6 inches long and was found on its back with its mouth opened, Scott Casterline, a spokesman for the family, told The Associated Press.

He said the women didn't find it until taking the salad home to eat, and that a manager from the McDonald's "didn't offer any comfort" after driving to their house to investigate. The suit was filed after the restaurant didn't follow through on promises "to make things right," he said.

"The family needs closure," said Casterline, whose family's law firm is representing the plaintiffs. "It came to a point where you have to draw a line."

Ken Lobato, owner-operator of the McDonald's in Southlake, told the Morning News that he hadn't seen the suit and couldn't respond.
