The timing on Exum’s return seems a little coincidental, doesn’t it? He’s not ready, he’s not ready, he’s not ready, Facyson’s hurt … he’s ready!
So what is the deal with Cody Journell?
The guy is 7-11 on the season and there seems to be no competition for his job. With the extra curricular activities that he has been a part of, and it seems other players have gotten kicked off of the team for less, what do you think about the whole situation?
I hope the kid does well, and obviously hope he makes his kicks, but there seems to be more going on.
Made my day. Cue the conspiracy theorists who will now believe crooked road is no longer posting as jennie.
Can’t wait for those who have never programmed a predictive expert system to defend the BCS methodology since it mainly relies on polls of coaches and writers who a) know so much more than everyone else, and b) do not have the time to actually watch all the games.
Plus the fact the computer component is objectively reliable since the models do not rely on the subjective weighting of criteria by their designers and despite the fact the various objective models disagree wildly with the human polls as well as widely disagree amongst themselves its all good since we discard the highest and lowest rankings as if it is a Cold War Olympics when in fact one of the discarded rankings may have gotten it right.
That about covers it.
An eight team playoff can’t get here soon enough.
Then all we can complain about is the ninth team left out.
Here’s my question: Why is Miami ranked top ten when their best win was a lucky one against a since discredited Florida team and they have struggled since eg squeaking by UNC?
Do they get credit cuz Fla was overrated when they played? Or is it that they simply haven’t lost while the SECc and others have?
Perhaps I’ve answered my own question.
Sounds like Bud would still prefer to play Facyson over Exum.
“Cue the fill-in-the-blank” Crooked Road used that all the time Schmennie/Crooked Road. We know it’s you
Miami and Clemson should be ranked around number 18, both are very overrated. This will all be corrected in just a few short weeks. VT can move ahead of both if they can find a running back.
He has the size and arm strength. What are the chances that bucky is the next QB in the future?
Yes, Miami will be ranked below vt after they play Florida St. Then they will loose to vt because they have an unhealthy beat-up team. Playing back to back tuff competition does make a difference.
In some ways, I wish crooked road were more like jennie, in some ways, I wish jennie were more like crooked road, but if they’re the same person, I’ll eat my hat.
Gillie’s has a great breakfast, do like I did, bring your own bacon in, pre’cooked in a plastic bag in your pocket/purse, and you have a real breakfast.
As we’ve seen with Logan size and arm strength aren’t everything. Consistency with accuracy and decision making are more important factors
Y’all are gonna miss Logan when he’s gone.
ESPN had an article today about the dearth of depth at QB in the NFL due to injuries that even 44 years old retired Brett Favre got interest.
So that should help should help Logan’s prospects.
Evidently, no one was desperate enough to call Tebow. I wonder if he’s eligible for unemployment?
I’m willing to change. Just tell me how.
Cannot get anything past Jerry. He has a mind like a steel trap.
It’s awesome how you twist everything around until it fits there eaglet. Now you’ve got it set up to where even if VT beats a ranked team in Miami it still counts for nothing. You’d be good friends with Berry the way you both like to twist reality to suit your preconceived beliefs. And eaglet talent levels are a lot closer than you think they are. The teams VT has played so far are certainly capable of causing injury
Perch – Your “female” friend is actually a dude! This “drunk chick” still sounds like Crooked from time to time. The drunk schtick doesn’t hide the tendencies
Jerry, no sweat, I know jennie isn’t jennie, but I know he/she/them/it ain’t crooked road. jennie is funny, crooked isn’t, and I do get a kick out of the bourbon swilling late night drunkard schtick. But believe me, I don’t buy many of the ‘net personas on this blog.
I have said it before, it’s all in fun. I still think I’d rather watch a ball game with whatever jennie is than with crooked, but I ain’t all there myself.
I know this, I will watch this weekend’s game with my wife of 40 years, my friends of 41 years, with fresh boiled peanuts and grilled pork, beverages as preferred.
jennie, darlin’, don’t ever change. Well, less repetition, don’t argue with the host of the blog, and don’t treat the blog like twitter. And please, more detail on your libations. Mine have started to bore me, what with your adventurous spirits and all.
Jerry is correct in his LT assessment. Accuracy never more important than in these next 4 games.
When has passing accuracy not been important?
Oh that’s right, Tebow.
I think this is a fair question….
What does Jennie do BESIDES comment on Bitter Blogs?
(or maybe its Andy incognito (thats french for drag)
commetn #1- I think its Franks’ Loyalty /stubborness to a fault sysndrome. Frank tends to stick with a kicker til they graduate and then replaces them with a young one … I like the thought process- He might have switched this season if Journell didnt save them a billion times last year.
