Moo U showed us that if you work at it hard enough you can blow any game.

Aaah, the joy of a relevant Iron Bowl. 

I'm going to be decked in my orange and blue and wearing my class ring proudly on Saturday. 

Just hope "Bad Gus" from the Clemson and LSU games doesn't show up to coach.

Just had some of my War Eagle friends over tonight.  Not sure how they felt, but, I got a feeling Jalen Hurts is going to do a Nik Marshall on Auburn.  Can't wait to see it all play out!  Roll Tide

If someone had told me -- heck, even just two months ago -- that the Vikings-Rams game would have major playoff implications, I would've laughed myself insensate and assumed that person had gone completely daft.  Never thought we'd be here. 

Of course, I still can't bring to myself to actually believe yet.  I feel like the Vikes are Lucy with the football, and I'm Charlie Brown...

UCLA fired Mora last night.  He had gone 46-30 in six seasons.

yes but he was also below .500 for the past 3 seasons, including losses to Southern Cal the past 3 years


I think they're trying to get a head start in the Chip Kelly sweepstakes

That's the speculation I heard, too.  I also heard that six folks from Florida, including the AD, had Chip in a hotel room in New Hampshire and didn't come home with him.  Maybe the SEC is too much for him?
