Re: 2019 FB Schedule

I'd like to share a conversation I had with a friend and colleague who is an Auburn alum and fanatic that just had a month off due to surgery. He spent his time, when not knocked out by pain meds, reading whatever he could about his beloved Tigers. Living outside of Birmingham, he had no shortage of...

Re: SELA Spanks the Wave 10-3

Framing and moving when the pitcher is in his delivery are not the same. Nieman was hopping with pitchers in motion, If the pitcher is concentrating on the mitt at the same time that is a problem. When the pitcher begins his motion the catcher must be stationary. When the pitcher is in motion the b...

Re: SELA Spanks the Wave 10-3

Studied the catchers tonight. I was right. The problem goes beyond our pitching staff. Nieman does not give the staff a consistent target. He has a little jump most of the time the pitchers are in their windup. Southeasterns catcher is set when their pitcher is in motion. He was moving his glove in...

I think you're confusing Jonathan with jonathanjoseph.
I think you're right. Both were often times hard to deal with, but JJ was more intelligent. That being said, I still think Jonathan is more intelligent than pete.

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

I think the Pirates are going to be much improved and could get to a bowl game this year. By year 2 of Mike Houston's tenure, they'll compete for the AAC Championship.

Looking at the warren nolan site (thanks for the link 755) we all know how important this weekend series is with ECU, since their RPI is 9. We need to win the series with UConn as well, as they're RPI is right at #25. Houston (41) and UCF (75) are above us as well. Just win, everything else will fal...

I was banned without notice about 10 years ago. Frankly, that board went downhill after Wayne passed away. I asked a few years ago if I could get reinstated, and was told no. When I asked why I was banned in the first place, I was told I wasn't owed an explanation. I'll check in and read from time t...

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

The problem is most of our (and even more of the top 1/2 of FBS') OOC schedules are set 3+ years in advance. How do we know if we'll be coming off a horrible season and need to dummy down the schedule? We don't. And we also don't know which teams are going to be any good or qualify as easy wins 3 or...

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

To me the huge difference is how thoroughly Tulane won those games in 1998 and went undefeated, vs squeaking by and going 7-6 in 2013. There is no comparison between those two teams, the post-1998 excitement about TU football was huge and deservedly so. Until Scelfo came in and we got crushed in th...

For what it's worth: In 1998 there were 6 Power Conferences, and Rutgers was a member of one of them. The Big East had 2 teams ranked in the top 20 preseason and finished with 3.

For the life of me, how did CJ and company find a way to lose to FAU, Texas San Antonio, Rice and South Alabama that year? The 2013 should have been a 11-1 season. I think I picked us to go 10-2 that year. This year, I think Fritz can pull out another bowl game. We need consistency in our program. ...

I agree as well. But I do want to see an Oklahoma or Clemson on the schedule every other year. There's little chance of that happening. Maybe if we sign 5 game series starting in 2030 with both OU and Clemson, giving them 3 home games each, we'd have a prayer. We might even have to do 4 for 1 It re...

Re: 2019 FB Schedule

I agree with you, WaveQB. Maybe people should look at it the other way. How much of a "winning culture" can you build if you go 4-4 in conf every year, but go 0-4 in OOC, because you choose to play Auburn, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma every season? A continuous string of 4-8 seasons would do...
