[quote]Ladd McConkey probably deserves an HM more than Smith. Had more total yards and TDs than Burton, Smith, or Mitchell this year.[/quote] Not quite. McConkey had 5 more catches but 50 less receiving yards than Burton...and the same amount of TDs (5)......

re: off season, looking back in history, for the whiners about how hard their SEC schedule is - OldPete
[quote]Wasn't that the team that beat yall like a drum in BHM and finally convinced Bear that he should recruit colored folk?[/quote] No, the football team had been integrated for 7 or 8 years at that point. While USC also beat us that year (24-14), the season you're talking 'bout is 1970 when Sam...

re: off season, looking back in history, for the whiners about how hard their SEC schedule is - OldPete
A lot of SEC schools played similar schedules back in the 60's and 70's. Here's Bama's schedule in 1978: #10 Nebraska at #11 Missouri #7 USC Vanderbilt at Washington Florida at Tennessee Virginia Tech Mississippi State #10 LSU Auburn #1 Penn State (Sugar Bowl) 4 of their first 5 ga...

re: Hearing two rumors - OldPete
[quote]...and have only been a Falcons fan for 25 years, you don't know how badly they can frick this up.[/quote] Truer words have never been spoken; I've been a Falcons fan since I was a kid in the late 60's and I've just about seen it all. We were up 28-3 with about 5 minutes or so to go in the ...

re: Hearing two rumors - OldPete
[quote]His failure to overrule Shanahan's indefensible playcalling after Julio got them deep into FG range with an 8 point lead was one of the most notable examples of coaching malpractice in NFL history and there was never any coming back from it. They literally could have just taken 3 knees, kicke...

[quote]The Falcons really fricked up by keeping Bro Quinn and Dimitroff around as long as they did.[/quote] I could’ve seen it if they hadn’t blown a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl; as a long suffering Falcons fan, one Super Bowl title would’ve been worth all the pain since that game…...

re: Tight end Jahleel Billingsley transferring from Alabama Crimson Tide to Texas Longhorns - OldPete
[quote]Be sure to tell your coaches to throw to him in clutch situations.[/quote] Bryce Young threw to him on 4th and 7 on the 97-yard game-tying drive against Auburn…he caught that one… Not sure what the issue was with Billingsley this year; he got in the doghouse early and never really got bac...

re: Transfer Portal & NFL Draft - Comings, Goings and Rumors Thread - OldPete
I was disappointed in Billingsley this year…but I still remember the good plays he had for us. Pretty much this year, all I’ll remember is his 4th down catch against Auburn…not sure what the issue was this year, I thought he was due for a big season… But last year, he was good and I won’t forget...

re: Which is the best team you’ve seen win a natty and why - OldPete
1995 Nebraska. They trailed once all season (never trailed in the second half) and they boat-raced a great Florida team in the championship game that had dominated the SEC. Of the 12 games on their schedule, only one was a non-Power 5 team; they won every game by 14+ points. They stomped four team...

[quote]The guy is a horrible playcaller. His best plays usually were the scripted ones he started the game with after which he would never revisit. [/quote] We scored 24 points in 2nd quarter against UGA long after the scripted plays had been run… As for the CFPCG, if we don’t have the key drops...

re: 2 years ago today LSU won the 2019 natty - OldPete
[quote]Your right, maybe Alabama would have won if they didn’t have Tua, Ruggs, Jeudy, And Willis holding them back in 2019.[/quote] As for our offense in 2019, Tua wasn't 100% in that game and the Devonta Smith/John Metchie tandem put up much better receiving numbers in 2020 than Ruggs/Jeudy in 20...

[quote]Especially love the Bama fans crying about 2020-the asterisk year of all asterisk years- when they played nothing near the schedule LSU played in 2019.[/quote] We don't cry about 2020, we celebrate it, much like LSU fans celebrate 2019, as you should... In 2020, Bama played an all Power 5...
