And

“Miss Sullivan touched my forehead and spelled with decided emphasis, “Think.”  In a flash I knew that the word was the name of the process that was going on in my head. This was my first conscious perception of an abstract idea.  For a long time I was still … trying to find a meaning for “love” in the light of this new idea. The sun had been under a cloud all day, and there had been brief showers; but suddenly the sun broke forth in all its southern splendour.  Again I asked my teacher, “Is this not love?”

“Love is something like the clouds that were in the sky before the sun came out,” she replied. Then in simpler words than these, which at that time I could not have understood, she explained:

“You cannot touch the clouds, you know; but you feel the rain and know how glad the flowers and the thirsty earth are to have it after a hot day. You cannot touch love either; but you feel the sweetness that it pours into everything. Without love you would not be happy or want to play.”

The beautiful truth burst upon my mind — I felt that there were invisible lines stretched between my spirit and the spirits of others.”

And

“No matter how dull, or how mean, or how wise a man is, he feels that happiness is his indisputable right.”

And

“A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.”

And

“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Tuesday, December 1, 2020 – John Steinbeck

And

And

“It has always been my private conviction that any man who puts his intelligence up against a fish and loses had it coming.”

And

“It has always seemed strange to me… the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.”

And

“Man, unlike anything organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, emerges ahead of his accomplishments.”

And

“Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream.”

And

“And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about. I can understand why a system built on a pattern must try to destroy the free mind, for it is the one thing which can by inspection destroy such a system. Surely I can understand this, and I hate it and I will fight against it to preserve the one thing that separates us from the uncreative beasts. If the glory can be killed, we are lost.”

And

“In every bit of honest writing in the world … there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. there is writing promoting social change, writing punishing injustice, writing in celebration of heroism, but always that base theme. Try to understand each other.”

And

“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. It might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.”

And

“The profession of book-writing makes horse-racing seem like a solid, stable business.”

And

“Our species is the only creative species, and it has only one creative instrument, the individual mind and spirit of a man. Nothing was ever created by two men. There are no good collaborations, whether in art, in music, in poetry, in mathematics, in philosophy. Once the miracle of creation has taken place, the group can build and extend it, but the group never invents anything. The preciousness lies in the lonely mind of a man.”

And

“It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world.”

And

“I guess this is why I hate governments. It is always the rule, the fine print, carried out by the fine print men. There’s nothing to fight, no wall to hammer with frustrated fists.

And

Excerpt from Travels with Charley, John Steinbeck

The next passage in my journey is a love affair. I am in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection, but with Montana it is love, and it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it. Once, when I raptured in a violet glow given off by the Queen of the World, my father asked me why, and I thought he was crazy not to see. Of course I know now she was a mouse-haired, freckle-nosed, scabby-kneed little girl with a voice like a bat and the loving kindness of a gila monster, but then she lighted up the landscape and me. It seems to me that Montana is a great splash of grandeur. The scale is huge but not overpowering. The land is rich with grass and color, and the mountains are the kind I would create if mountains were ever put on my agenda. Montana seems to me to be what a small boy would think Texas is like from hearing Texans. Here for the first time I heard a definite regional accent unaffected by TV-ese, a slow-paced warm speech. It seemed to me that the frantic bustle of America was not in Montana. Its people did not seem afraid of shadows in a John Birch Society sense. The calm of the mountains and the rolling grasslands had got into the inhabitants. It was hunting season when I drove through the state. The men I talked to seemed to me not moved to a riot of seasonal slaughter but simply to be going out to kill edible meat. Again my attitude may be informed by love, but it seemed to me that the towns were places to live in rather than nervous hives. People had time to pause in their occupations to undertake the passing art of neighborliness.

I found I did not rush through the towns to get them over with. I even found things I had to buy to make myself linger. In Billings I bought a hat, in Livingston a jacket, in Butte a rifle I didn’t particularly need, a Remington bolt-action .22, secondhand but in beautiful condition. Then I found a telescope sight I had to have, and waited while it was mounted on the rifle, and in the process got to know everyone in the shop and any customers who entered. With the gun in a vise and the bolt out, we zeroed the new sight on a chimney three blocks away, and later when I got to shooting the little gun I found no reason to change it. I spent a good part of a morning at this, mostly because I wanted to stay. But I see that, as usual, love is inarticulate. Montana has a spell on me. It is grandeur and warmth. If Montana had a seacoast, or if I could live away from the sea, I would instantly move there and petition for admission. Of all the states it is my favorite and my love.

At Custer we made a side trip south to pay our respects to General Custer and Sitting Bull on the battlefield of Little Big Horn. I don’t suppose there is an American who doesn’t carry Remington’s painting of the last defense of the center column of the 7th Cavalry in his head. I removed my hat in memory of brave men, and Charley saluted in his own manner but I thought with great respect.

The whole of eastern Montana and the western Dakotas is memory-marked as Injun country, and the memories are not very old either. Some years ago my neighbor was Charles Erskine Scott Wood, who wrote Heavenly Discourse. He was a very old man when I knew him, but as a young lieutenant just out of military academy he had been assigned to General Miles and he served in the Chief Joseph campaign. His memory of it was very clear and very sad. He said it was one of the most gallant retreats in all history. Chief Joseph and the Nez Percés with squaws and children, dogs, and all their possessions, retreated under heavy fire for over a thousand miles, trying to escape to Canada. Wood said they fought every step of the way against odds until finally they were surrounded by the cavalry under General Miles and the large part of them wiped out. It was the saddest duty he had ever performed, Wood said, and he had never lost his respect for the fighting qualities of the Nez Percés. “If they hadn’t had their families with them we could never have caught them,” he said. “And if we had been evenly matched in men and weapons, we couldn’t have beaten them. They were men,” he said, “Real men.”

Wear Masks Inside Public Buildings

Come on folks!

Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

Thanks Johnny!

Whatever This Week Is Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – We haven’t a Damn Clue what is going on with Michigan Football, but that performance by Michigan on Saturday against a winless Penn State team was easily….

The Worst Performance by a Michigan Football Team in our 50+ Years on Earth!

We also haven’t a Damn Clue what Jim Harbaugh is trying to do with the Michigan Offense but what the Wolverines are now running on Offense is…

Total Crapola….no make that Total Damn Stupid Shit Total Crapola!

It has gotten so bad at Michigan that Jim Harbaugh now…

Poses a Clear and Present Danger to the Safety and Well-Being to Michigan Football Players

….in our opinion because Jim Harbaugh is no longer coaching football at Michigan and you could just roll the footballs onto the practice fields at Michigan and the Wolverines players would not only field a better team they would actually be…

Safer on Gameday because they would actually be Practicing Football!

Michigan is now 2 – 4 in 2020 and they have beaten…

Awful Minnesota
Pitiful Penn State

…and needed 3 Overtimes to beat a Rutgers team that was one the worst college football teams in America the last 5 years coming into the 2020 season!

If we were the Athletic Director at Michigan we would have already fired Jim Harbaugh because he does in our opinion…

Poses a Clear and Present Danger to the Safety and Well-Being to Michigan Football Players

….because this is Not Football being played at Michigan, Hell it’s not even Patty-Cake…YES Michigan Football is now playing…

Sub-Patty-Cake Football

…and Every Damn Powder Puff Team we have seen play football in our 50+ years on Earth could…

Whip the Living Hell out of this Michigan Football Team!

Memo to Michigan AD Ward Manuel: If you care about the Safety and Well-Being of the Michigan Football Players fire Jim Harbaugh today!

2 – 4 Michigan has left….

Maryland
At Ohio State

…and it’s certainly possible Michigan will find a way to weasel out of an Total Ass Whipping in Columbus but can Blue even beat Maryland at home?

They couldn’t beat a Winless Penn State Team that just got whipped by Nebraska which is…

One of the worse Power 5 Conference Football Teams in America!

2.  Tom Herman, Texas – It goes without saying when you get Tom Herman as your Head Football Coach you know going in you are hiring…

One of the Most Pompous Arrogant Ass Human Beings on the Earth who believes his Ass is God on Earth and Every Other Human Being is a Worthless Piece of Shit

…in our humble opinion but one would think Herman thinking his ass is God on Earth would at least…

Win A Helluva Lot of Football Games and Championships

…and yet Herman’s records at Texas where Bozo the Clown could win .675 of their games is now…

Overall:  30 – 18 (.625)

Big 12:  21 – 13

5 – 3 Texas has left in 2020…

At Kansas State
At Kansas

…and Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America could whip the Hell out of Kansas so we will see what Texas does against Kansas State but we are talking about Texas here and in Year 4 you would think that…

God Almighty Himself = Tom Herman

…would as the Head Coach at TEXAS be able to beat Kansas State….Right?

Right!

Someone in Austin needs to fire God Almighty and after you fire his Worthless Damn Ass kick his Worthless Damn Ass off the University of Texas campus and then hold a press conference saying…

Only a Total Stupid Shit would hire Tom Herman….unless you want a Worthless Ass Pompous Arrogant Punk as your Head Coach….in our humble opinion.

3.  Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – Kevin Sumlin’s records at Arizona say it all…

Overall:  9 – 18

Pac-12:  6 – 15

….but consider Sumlin’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records now stands at…

2 – 17

…and you have a full understanding at how bad things have gotten at Arizona which has now lost…wait for it…
10 Straight Football Games!

0 – 3 Arizona now has left in 2020…..

Colorado
Arizona State

…which looks like 2 more less and that would be 12 Straight Losses for Arizona heading into the 2021 season with or without Kevin Sumlin and the next time an Athletic Director thinks about hiring a coach that just….

Got His Ass Fired at a place like Texas A&M where Captain Kangaroo can win 8 games a season and got a Massive $$$ Buyout….Don’t Do It….

Just Don’t Damn Do It you Damn Moron AD and there are Lots of Damn Moron ADs in America today!

4.  Scott Frost, Nebraska – One would think by Scott Frost’s 29 th game as the Head Coach at Nebraska that the Huskers be able to beat Iowa but an even better question that we be asking of Frost after his football team lost 26 – 20 to Iowa on the road is…

“How in the Hell Son can you play Iowa to a tough game until the end on the road and the week before you get your ass whipped by a very mediocre Illinois team at home? Please explain that to me Son!”

With that loss Scott Frost, who is making $5M Dollars A Year and should be for that kind of money be able to field a football team that actually shows up in home games in Lincoln, records now stand at…

Overall:  10 – 19

Big Ten:  7 – 16

Really?

For almost $15M Dollars in the bank now for Scott Frost and he has put up those records?

Try Scott Frost has not EARNED $10 Damn Dollars because Nebraska could have hired…

Any Damn Moron off the streets of Omaha 3 years ago and paid him $10 Damn Dollars and His or Her Ass could have posted records of…

Overall:  10 – 19

Big Ten:  7 – 16

The 1 – 4 Huskers now have left in 2020…

At Purdue
Minnesota

….and based upon the way Nebraska has played in 2020 that looks like 1 more loss at least at Purdue which just lost back-to-back games against Very Mediocre Minnesota and Purdue and then a battle of the…

2 Biggest Cream Puff Teams in America on December 12 in Lincoln = Minnesota vs. Purdue

5.  Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Somehow the Vols were able to wiggle out of playing Vanderbilt riding a 5 game losing streak which would with a loss to Vandy led to both Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt being fired within 24 hours and now 2 – 5 Tennessee has coming up…

Florida
Texas A&M

….the #5 and #6 teams in the country who are both motivated to keep winning to keep alive the potential for playing in the College Football Playoff which looks like 2 more losses and a….

2 – 7

…record of Jeremy Pruitt in his THIRD year on the job and if you are thinking that Tennessee could have hired…

Paul Finebaum to coach Tennessee

…and he done better than Jeremy Pruitt coaching the Vols the last 3 seasons…

You would be right!

If Tennessee did finish in Pruitt’s THIRD year on the job at…

Overall:  2 – 7

SEC:  2 – 7

….that would be quite the come-down from the last Vols Head Coach Butch Jones who in his THIRD year at Tennessee posted records of…

Overall:  9 – 4

SEC:  5 – 3

Yes…Congrats Tennessee Fans on that Great Hire the Great and God Almighty Himself Phil Fulmer made there in Jeremy Pruitt who is worse than the Head Coach the Vols ran out of town but don’t expect Fulmer or Pruitt to ever admit they have been wrong on Tennessee Football or Anything Else because you see when you are a…

Pompous Arrogant Ass like both Fulmer and Pruitt

….are in our humble opinion fully expect them to Takedown Tennessee Football and burn down everything in sight before they leave town with Millions and Millions of Dollars of YOUR $$$…in our humble opinion.

6.  Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Justin Fuente, even in the 10 – 4 season in his first year on the job at Virginia Tech, has lost 4+ games every season he has coached the Hokies and with already 5 losses on the board in 2020 with a record of 4 – 5 and games left against…

Clemson
Virginia

….that at best will be 5 – 6 in Justin Fuente’s FIFTH year on the job in Blacksburg and if that is acceptable to the folks that support Virginia Football then Bless you folks!

It’s hard to know anymore what the Expectations are a place like Virginia Tech, which we would guess would be Playing for the ACC Title Every Damn Year but maybe we are wrong, so we don’t have a good handle on whether Justin Fuente can survive going 5 – 6 in his FIFTH year on the job at Va. Tech but maybe he can….maybe he can!

7.  Dino Babers, Syracuse – Syracuse played NC State on the road tough before losing 36 – 29 and it was nice to see some fight in the Orange, but with that loss Syracuse falls to…

1 – 9

…in 2020 and they still have to play a game against…

The Irish will be very motivated to not only Win but make it a Big Win and that means the Orange are going to finish at…

1 – 10

….in Dino Babers FIFTH year on the job at Syracuse and because of Corona Virus maybe Dino can hang onto his job but for sure Dino will be on a Roaring Hot Seat entering the 2021 season if he is back to coach the OAt Notre Damnrange next year!

8.  Les Miles, Kansas – Why was Les Miles hired as the Head Coach at Kansas when the…

Last Damn Thing on Earth that Kansas needed was another Fired Re-Tread Coach 2 Seasons Ago?

No idea but Les Miles records the last 2 seasons at Kansas now stand at…

Overall:  3 – 16

Big 12:  1 – 14

….and again we ask no one in particular but mainly folks with Sub 2 IQs because they be the only ones EVER consider hiring Les Miles at Kansas 2 seasons ago >

Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?

Kansas now at 0 – 7 has left in 2020….

At Texas Tech
Texas

…which sure looks like 2 losses to us and…

0 – 9

…in Les Miles 2 nd year on the job and again…

Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?

9.  Mike Leach, Mississippi State – If Mississippi State is going to fire a coach in Joe Moorhead who posted records of…

8 – 5
6 – 7

….in 2 seasons at the school then the coach you hired to replace Moorhead whether it’s Mike Leach or Anyone Else if they have posted a record of…

2 – 6

…you will find your ass squarely on the Hot Seat and the 2 – 6 Bulldogs have left to play in 2020…

Auburn

…in a game that Gus Malzahn cannot lose because if Malzhan does lose to this Totally Pitiful Mississippi State Team on December 12 there’s a very good chance that Malzahn will be fired so we don’t see Auburn losing this game…but they could….it’s Freaking Gus Malzahn!

If Mississippi State does lose to Auburn to fall to 2 – 7 in 2020 then Mike Leach will enter the 2021 season on of the Hottest Hot Seats in America and Oh how the Bulldogs football program has fallen since Dan Mullen took off for Florida but it fell Helluva Lot Further when the Pirate showed-up and do we think Mike Leach gives 2 Damn Rips about anything but his Own Precious Ass?

No…Mike Leach is in our opinion one of the Most Selfish Human Beings on the Earth and like his “Hero” Mike loves talking about how “Tough” he is and “War” and all kinds of other Damn Nonsense but has Mike Leach or his “Hero” spent one nanosecond serving in the US Military?

Of course not….just 2 Candy Asses love talking “Tough” but asses go running like Damn Cowards when things get “Tough” like all the other Damn Cowards that block people on Twitter that dare disagree with their Precious Asses!

10.  Jeff Brohm, Purdue – The last 2 seasons Jeff Brohm has been paid…

2019:  $5.35M
2020:  $5.55M

….for a Total of $10.9M and in the last 2 seasons Brohm has posted records of…

Overall:  6 – 11

Big Ten:  5 – 9

…..and one would think if you going to be paid almost $11M Dollars you would get your football team to show-up and play football and yet the Boilermakers look like one of the…

Worst Coached Teams in Power 5 Conference Football

…and are now on a 3 Game Losing Streak with games left against…

Nebraska
At Indiana

No way this Purdue team beats Indiana in 2020 but can they beat a…

Pitiful and Mediocre Nebraska Team at home on Saturday?

Who knows because both Nebraska and Purdue are…

2 of the Worst Coached Teams in Power 5 Conference Football

Oh Jeff Brohm is slated to make $5.7M+ in 2021!

Be Proud fans of Purdue Football….Be Oh So Proud!

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Monday, November 30, 2020 – Eddie Robinson

“Coaching is a profession of love. You can’t coach people unless you love them.”

And

“My players can wear their hair as long as they want and dress any way they want. That is, if they can afford to pay their own tuition, meals and board.”

And

“People talk about the record I’ve compiled at Grambling, but the real record is the fact that for over 50 years I’ve had one job and one wife. I don’t believe anybody can out-American me.”

And

“I’ve learned more about what the players meant to me and what they meant to the game. I never won a game – they did. You learn from every player because they’re not the same.”

And

“Everything I’ve done, I think I dreamed of it first.”

And

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”

And

“Coach each boy as if he were your own son”

And

“Leadership, like coaching, is fighting for the hearts and souls of men and getting them to believe in you”

And

“They call me the greatest. I know that the greatest football coach who ever stepped on the field is Coach Eddie Robinson. I have admired what he has done in turning boys into men. He is a credit to his sport as well as a credit to humanity.” Muhammad Ali

And

“First time I met Eddie was around 1968 up at Uniontown, Pa. I was an assistant coach at West Virginia, and he was the head coach at Grambling and very successful. He came up there and spoke at a banquet. I heard him speak, and he’s the kind of guy that you get close to immediately. … He was a people’s person. You can’t help but like him … I doubt if there is a coach in the United States that people have more respect for — and loved — than for Eddie Robinson.” Bobby Bowden

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Sunday, November 29, 2020 – Johnny Unitas

And

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Saturday, November 28, 2020 – Paul “Bear” Bryant

“Mama wanted me to be a preacher. I told her coachin’ and preachin’ were a lot alike.”

And

“But it’s still a coach’s game. Make no mistake. You start at the top. If you don’t have a good one at the top, you don’t have a cut dog’s chance. If you do, the rest falls into place. You have to have good assistants, and a lot of things, but first you have to have the chairman of the board.”

And

“If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, we did it. If anything goes really good, then you did it. That’s all it takes to get people to win football games for you.”

And

“I think the most important thing of all for any team is a winning attitude. The coaches must have it. The players must have it. The student body must have it. If you have dedicated players who believe in themselves, you don’t need a lot of talent.”

And

“The idea of molding men means a lot to me.”

And

“You must learn how to hold a team together. You must lift some men up, calm others down, until finally they’ve got one heartbeat. Then you’ve got yourself a team.”

And

“If wanting to win is a fault, as some of my critics seem to insist, then I plead guilty. I like to win. I know no other way. It’s in my blood.”

And

“Get the winners into the game.”

And

“The old lessons (work, self-discipline, sacrifice, teamwork, fighting to achieve) aren’t being taught by many people other than football coaches these days. The football coach has a captive audience and can teach these lessons because the communication lines between himself and his players are more wide open than between kids and parents. We better teach these lessons or else the country’s future population will be made up of a majority of crooks, drug addicts, or people on relief.”

And

“Sacrifice. Work. Self-discipline. I teach these things, and my boys don’t forget them when they leave.”

And

“It’s not the will to win that matters – everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”

And

“I’ll never give up on a player regardless of his ability as long as he never gives up on himself. In time he will develop.”

And

“Set goals – high goals for you and your organization. When your organization has a goal to shoot for, you create teamwork, people working for a common good.”

And

“Don’t talk too much. Don’t pop off. Don’t talk after the game until you cool off.”

And

“You have to learn what makes this or that Sammy run. For one it’s a pat on the back, for another it’s eating him out, for still another it’s a fatherly talk, or something else. You’re a fool if you think as I did as a young coach, that you can treat them all alike.”

And

“If a man is a quitter, I’d rather find out in practice than in a game. I ask for all a player has so I’ll know later what I can expect.”

And

“Find your own picture, your own self in anything that goes bad. It’s awfully easy to mouth off at your staff or chew out players, but if it’s bad, and you’re the head coach, you’re responsible. If we have an intercepted pass, I threw it. I’m the head coach. If we get a punt blocked, I caused it. A bad practice, a bad game, it’s up to the head coach to assume his responsibility.”

And

“It’s awfully important to win with humility. It’s also important to lose with humility. I hate to lose worse than anyone, but if you never lose you won’t know how to act. If you lose with humility, then you can come back.”

And

“Losing doesn’t make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder.”

And

“The biggest mistake coaches make is taking borderline cases and trying to save them. I’m not talking about grades now, I’m talking about character. I want to know before a boy enrolls about his home life, and what his parents want him to be.”

And

“What are you doing here? Tell me why you are here. If you are not here to win a national championship, you’re in the wrong place. You boys are special. I don’t want my players to be like other students. I want special people. You can learn a lot on the football field that isn’t taught in the home, the church, or the classroom. There are going to be days when you think you’ve got no more to give and then you’re going to give plenty more. You are going to have pride and class. You are going to be very special. You are going to win the national championship for Alabama.”

And

“I’m no innovator. If anything I’m a stealer, or borrower. I’ve stolen or borrowed from more people than you can shake a stick at.”

And

“There is no sin in not liking to play; it’s a mistake for a boy to be there if he doesn’t want to.”

And

“I’m no miracle man. I guarantee nothing but hard work.”

And

“Don’t overwork your squad. If you’re going to make a mistake, under-work them.”

And

“Be aware of “yes” men. Generally, they are losers. Surround yourself with winners. Never forget – people win.”

And

“If there is one thing that has helped me as a coach, it’s my ability to recognize winners, or good people who can become winners by paying the price.”

And

“You take those little rascals, talk to them good, pat them on the back, let them think they are good, and they will go out and beat the biguns.”

And

“If you whoop and holler all the time, the players just get used to it.”

And

“I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games.”

And

“If you want to coach you have three rules to follow to win. One, surround yourself with people who can’t live without football. I’ve had a lot of them. Two, be able to recognize winners. They come in all forms. And, three, have a plan for everything. A plan for practice, a plan for the game. A plan for being ahead, and a plan for being behind 20-0 at half, with your quarterback hurt and the phones dead, with it raining cats and dogs and no rain gear because the equipment man left it at home.”

And

“My approach to the game has been the same at all the places I’ve been. Vanilla. The sure way. That means, first of all, to win physically. If you got eleven on a field, and they beat the other eleven physically, they’ll win. They will start forcing mistakes. They’ll win in the fourth quarter.”

And

“Little things make the difference. Everyone is well prepared in the big things, but only the winners perfect the little things.”

And

“Scout yourself. Have a buddy who coaches scout you.”

And

“The first time you quit, it’s hard. The second time, it gets easier. The third time, you don’t even have to think about it.”

And

“But there’s one thing about quitters you have to guard against – they are contagious. If one boy goes, the chances are he’ll take somebody with him, and you don’t want that. So when they would start acting that way, I used to pack them up and get them out, or embarrass them, or do something to turn them around.”

And

“There’s a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.”

And

“People who are in it for their own good are individualists. They don’t share the same heartbeat that makes a team so great. A great unit, whether it be football or any organization, shares the same heartbeat.”

And

“I told them my system was based on the “ant plan,” that I’d gotten the idea watching a colony of ants in Africa during the war. A whole bunch of ants working toward a common goal.”

And

“We can’t have two standards, one set for the dedicated young men who want to do something ambitious and one set for those who don’t.”

And

“I honestly believe that if you are willing to out-condition the opponent, have confidence in your ability, be more aggressive than your opponent and have a genuine desire for team victory, you will become the national champions. If you have all the above, you will acquire confidence and poise, and you will have those intangibles that win the close ones.”

And

“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit – you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”

And

“Don’t ever give up on ability. Don’t give up on a player who has it.”

And

“A good, quick, small team can beat a big, slow team any time.”

And

“I have always tried to teach my players to be fighters. When I say that, I don’t mean put up your dukes and get in a fistfight over something. I’m talking about facing adversity in your life. There is not a person alive who isn’t going to have some awfully bad days in their lives. I tell my players that what I mean by fighting is when your house burns down, and your wife runs off with the drummer, and you’ve lost your job and all the odds are against you. What are you going to do? Most people just lay down and quit. Well, I want my people to fight back.”

And

“If they don’t have a winning attitude, I don’t want them.”

And

“I have tried to teach them to show class, to have pride, and to display character. I think football, winning games, takes care of itself if you do that.”

And

“I always want my players to show class, knock’em down, pat on the back, and run back to the huddle.”

And

“I tell young players who want to be coaches, who think they can put up with all the headaches and heartaches, can you live without it? If you can live without it, don’t get in it.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Friday, November 27, 2020 – Michael Crichton

“If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”

And

“Do you know what we call opinion in the absence of evidence? We call it prejudice.” State of Fear

And

“It’s better to die laughing than to live each moment in fear.”

And

“What makes you think human beings are sentient and aware? There’s no evidence for it. Human beings never think for themselves, they find it too uncomfortable. For the most part, members of our species simply repeat what they are told-and become upset if they are exposed to any different view. The characteristic human trait is not awareness but conformity, and the characteristic result is religious warfare. Other animals fight for territory or food; but, uniquely in the animal kingdom, human beings fight for their ‘beliefs.’ The reason is that beliefs guide behavior which has evolutionary importance among human beings. But at a time when our behavior may well lead us to extinction, I see no reason to assume we have any awareness at all. We are stubborn, self-destructive conformists. Any other view of our species is just a self-congratulatory delusion. Next question.” The Lost World

And

“God creates dinosaurs, God kills dinosaurs, God creates man, man kills God, man brings back dinosaurs.” Jurassic Park

And

“The planet has survived everything, in its time. It will certainly survive us.” Jurassic Park

And

“You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity. Let me tell you about our planet. Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old. There’s been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years. Bacteria first; later the first multicellular life, then the first complex creatures in the sea, on the land. Then finally the great sweeping ages of animals, the amphibians, the dinosaurs, at last the mammals, each one enduring millions on millions of years, great dynasties of creatures rising, flourishing, dying away — all this against a background of continuous and violent upheaval. Mountain ranges thrust up, eroded away, cometary impacts, volcano eruptions, oceans rising and falling, whole continents moving, an endless, constant, violent change, colliding, buckling to make mountains over millions of years. Earth has survived everything in its time. It will certainly survive us. If all the nuclear weapons in the world went off at once and all the plants, all the animals died and the earth was sizzling hot for a hundred thousand years, life would survive, somewhere: under the soil, frozen in Arctic ice. Sooner or later, when the planet was no longer inhospitable, life would spread again. The evolutionary process would begin again. It might take a few billion years for life to regain its present variety. Of course, it would be very different from what it is now, but the earth would survive our folly, only we would not. If the ozone layer gets thinner, ultraviolet radiation sears the earth, so what? Ultraviolet radiation is good for life. It’s powerful energy. It promotes mutation, change. Many forms of life will thrive with more UV radiation. Many others will die out. Do you think this is the first time that’s happened? Think about oxygen. Necessary for life now, but oxygen is actually a metabolic poison, a corrosive glass, like fluorine. When oxygen was first produced as a waste product by certain plant cells some three billion years ago, it created a crisis for all other life on earth. Those plants were polluting the environment, exhaling a lethal gas. Earth eventually had an atmosphere incompatible with life. Nevertheless, life on earth took care of itself. In the thinking of the human being a hundred years is a long time. A hundred years ago we didn’t have cars, airplanes, computers or vaccines. It was a whole different world, but to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can’t imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven’t got the humility to try. We’ve been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we’re gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.” Jurassic Park

“I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.”

“All your life people will tell you things. And most of the time, probably ninety-five percent of the time, what they’ll tell you will be wrong.” The Lost World

“It’s hard to decide who’s truly brilliant; it’s easier to see who’s driven, which in the long run may be more important.” Congo

And

“Books aren’t written – they’re rewritten. Including your own. It is one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn’t quite done it.”

And

“The purpose of life is to stay alive. Watch any animal in nature–all it tries to do is stay alive. It doesn’t care about beliefs or philosophy. Whenever any animal’s behavior puts it out of touch with the realities of its existence, it becomes exinct.” Congo

And

“In the corner store we pulled fat bottles of water from the shelves. No one thinks it’s weird that we have to buy clean water, and that’s how I know we’re going to hell.”

And

“In the information society, nobody thinks. We expected to banish paper, but we actually banished thought.”

And

“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them. In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”

And

“Human beings are so destructive. I sometimes think we’re a kind of plague, that will scrub the earth clean. We destroy things so well that I sometimes think, maybe that’s our function. Maybe every few eons, some animal comes along that kills off the rest of the world, clears the decks, and lets evolution proceed to its next phase.” The Lost World

And

“All your life, other people will try to take your accomplishments away from you. Don’t you take it away from yourself.” The Lost World

And

“Anyone who says he knows God’s intention is showing a lot of very human ego.” Next

And

“Let’s be clear. The planet is not in jeopardy. We are in jeopardy. We haven’t got the power to destroy the planet – or to save it. But we might have the power to save ourselves.” Jurassic Park

And

“In other centuries, human beings wanted to be saved, or improved, or freed, or educated. But in our century, they want to be entertained. The great fear is not of disease or death, but of boredom. A sense of time on our hands, a sense of nothing to do. A sense that we are not amused.” Timeline

And

“Raising children is, in a sense, the reason the society exists in the first place. It’s the most important thing that happens, and it’s the culmination of all the tools and language and social structure that has evolved.” The Lost World

And

“Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled.”

And

“All human behavior has a reason. All behavior is solving a problem.” Disclosure

And

“A hundred years from now, people will look back on us and laugh. They’ll say, ‘You know what people used to believe? They believed in photons and electrons. Can you imagine anything so silly?’ They’ll have a good laugh, because by then there will be newer better fantasies… And meanwhile, you feel the way the boat moves? That’s the sea. That’s real. You smell the salt in the air? You feel the sunlight on your skin? That’s all real. Life is wonderful. It’s a gift to be alive, to see the sun and breathe the air. And there isn’t really anything else.” The Lost World

And

“Exercise invigorates the body and sharpens the mind.”

And

“Nobody dares to solve the problems-because the solution might contradict your philosophy, and for most people clinging to beliefs is more important than succeeding in the world.” State of Fear

And

“Working inspires inspiration. Keep working. If you succeed, keep working. If you fail, keep working. If you are interested, keep working. If you are bored, keep working.”

And

“His management philosophy, tempered in his rain-dancing days, was always to give the project to whoever had the most to gain from success–or the most to lose from failure.” Congo

And

“The greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fantasy, truth from propaganda. Perceiving the truth has always been a challenge to mankind, but in the information age (or as I think of it, the disinformation age) it takes on a special urgency and importance.”

And

“The purpose of history is to explain the present – to say why the world around us is the way it is. History tells us what is important in our world, and how it came to be. It tells us what is to be ignored, or discarded. That is true power – profound power. The power to define a whole society.” Timeline

And

“I want to pause here and talk about this notion of consensus, and the rise of what has been called consensus science. I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.

Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.

There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”

Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man’s side, consequently on the Lord’s side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments.”  Mark Twain

The Desolate Wilderness, Editorial, Wall Street Journal

“Here beginneth the chronicle of those memorable circumstances of the year 1620, as recorded by Nathaniel Morton , keeper of the records of Plymouth Colony, based on the account of William Bradford , sometime governor thereof:

So they left that goodly and pleasant city of Leyden, which had been their resting-place for above eleven years, but they knew that they were pilgrims and strangers here below, and looked not much on these things, but lifted up their eyes to Heaven, their dearest country, where God hath prepared for them a city (Heb. XI, 16), and therein quieted their spirits.

When they came to Delfs-Haven they found the ship and all things ready, and such of their friends as could not come with them followed after them, and sundry came from Amsterdam to see them shipt, and to take their leaves of them. One night was spent with little sleep with the most, but with friendly entertainment and Christian discourse, and other real expressions of true Christian love.

he next day they went on board, and their friends with them, where truly doleful was the sight of that sad and mournful parting, to hear what sighs and sobs and prayers did sound amongst them; what tears did gush from every eye, and pithy speeches pierced each other’s heart, that sundry of the Dutch strangers that stood on the Key as spectators could not refrain from tears. But the tide (which stays for no man) calling them away, that were thus loath to depart, their Reverend Pastor, falling down on his knees, and they all with him, with watery cheeks commended them with the most fervent prayers unto the Lord and His blessing; and then with mutual embraces and many tears they took their leaves one of another, which proved to be the last leave to many of them.

Being now passed the vast ocean….”

And the Fair Land, Editorial, Wall Street Journal

“Anyone whose labors take him into the far reaches of the country, as ours lately have done, is bound to mark how the years have made the land grow fruitful.

This is indeed a big country, a rich country, in a way no array of figures can measure and so in a way past belief of those who have not seen it. Even those who journey through its Northeastern complex, into the Southern lands, across the central plains and to its Western slopes can only glimpse a measure of the bounty of America.

And a traveler cannot but be struck on his journey by the thought that this country, one day, can be even greater. America, though many know it not, is one of the great underdeveloped countries of the world; what it reaches for exceeds by far what it has grasped.

So the visitor returns thankful for much of what he has seen, and, in spite of everything, an optimist about what his country might be. Yet the visitor, if he is to make an honest report, must also note the air of unease that hangs everywhere.

For the traveler, as travelers have been always…..”

2020 Thanksgiving Weekend – Stay Safe Out There Folks – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash! – Post What Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

As we head into the 2020 Thanksgiving Weekend the American People have Lost the Plot in slowing down a Corona Virus that is easy to stop if you follow just a few simple rules and with a President, Congress, and US Gov’t that has almost Totally Checked-Out and to that we can only say…

Stay Safe Out There Folks Because There Is No Leader in America that cares whether your ass is Dead or Alive!

Please give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell Mr. Cash!

Thanks Johnny!

Post What Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Vandy is not an easy job to win games at but one would think that over 7 seasons a coach would win more than…

10 SEC Conference Games

…and with Derek Mason’s records at Vandy now at…

Overall:  27 – 54

SEC:  10 – 45

…and games left against…

At Mizzou
At Georgia
Tennessee

…time is running short in 2020 to get 1 SEC win this season although Vandy has shown fight this season and give Mason credit for that!

We have no idea what the Expectations are at Vanderbilt, but we been to a half-dozen or so Vandy football games in Nashville and we talked to plenty of folks around Music City and our opinion is that generally the Administration at Vanderbilt University really…

Just doesn’t care whether Vandy football wins or not!

That’s Pitiful….Just Pitiful!

2.  Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – How exactly does a Michigan team coached by Jim Harbaugh in Jimmy’s 70 th game at the school in his 6 th season on the job in Ann Arbor need 3 overtimes to beat a Rutgers team with a first-year Head Coach that took over a Damn Disaster we haven’t a Damn Clue and yet…

In Jim Harbaugh’s 70 th game at Michigan..at MICHIGAN…he needed 3 overtimes to beat Rutgers….FREAKING RUTGERS!

Since Ohio State beat Michigan 62 – 39 to end the 2018 reason season Michigan’s records under Jim Harbaugh now stand at…

Overall:  11 – 7

Big 10:  8 – 6

….and it looks to us that Jim Harbaugh has just accepted that Michigan will forever play 2 nd fiddle behind the Buckeyes so what exactly is the point in chasing Excellence when you can make $8M+ a season being just merely Average As Hell?

Hell…if Michigan is willing to pay someone $8M+ a year for Average As Hell the all the Worthless As Hell Average Human Beings in America…

Apply for Jobs at the University of Michigan = Where Average As Hell is Richly Rewarded!

Well…when your record the last 2 seasons at Michigan is 11 – 7 Overall and 8 – 6 in the Big 10 make that….

Sub-Damn Average!

With games left against…

Penn State
Maryland
At Ohio State

….we will be fascinated to what Blue does in this spot because if they lose to this Pitiful Penn State team and a Maryland team that shouldn’t be able to stay on the field with Michigan then we will know that Jim Harbaugh has…

Totally and Completely Given Up in Ann Arbor

3.  Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – We have a rule at our Ad Agency that we never hire someone from another Agency that has just left that Agency under questionable circumstances = They Totally Failed…and with a big buyout (which is easy to find out in the world of Ad Agencies) and we still don’t have a clue why Arizona hire Kevin Sumlin right after he got fired at Texas A&M with a Massive Buyout because what in Hell exactly is Sumlin’s motivation to turn Arizona into a big winner?

Personal Pride maybe? Sorry, if we were in an Athletic Director position we are not in a zillion years hiring Kevin Sumlin at Arizona or Any Other School in the wake of him getting fired at Texas A&M because the #1 thing we would be looking at for in a Head Coach is…

Hunger! A Deep Hunger to build and maintain a Winning Football Program that focuses like a laser beam on…

Graduating Players
Building Winners = Winning Human Beings
Winning Games
Playing for Championships

Now in his 3 rd season at Arizona Kevin Sumlin has records of…

Overall:  9 – 17

Pac-12:  6 – 14

…and the Wildcats have left…

At UCLA
Colorado
Arizona State

If all the above games do get played we expect Arizona to finish at 0 – 5 in 2020 and if the folks in Tucson willing to accept that Pitiful Mediocrity then….

Shame On Them and Please….Who in the Hell Raised Your Sorry Asses because for Damn Sure it wasn’t Real Americans!

Winners Do Not Tolerate Pitiful Mediocrity!

4.  Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Talking about Pitiful Mediocrity take a gander at Jeremy Pruitt’s records in his 3 rd year at Tennessee >

Overall:  15 – 17

SEC:  9 – 14

Reality is Phil Fulmer could have hired…

Any Damn Random Person Off the Streets of Knoxville

….and He or She could have posted records of…

Overall:  15 – 17

SEC:  9 – 14

….coaching the Vols the last 3 seasons and here’s the benefit of hiring most Anyone off the streets of Knoxville, Tennessee instead of Jeremy Pruitt >

That person would not believe that their ass is God on Earth and be a Worthless Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk like Jeremy Pruitt!

In lots of ways Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt are perfect for each other because both are…

Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks that believe their asses spun-up the Earth and that everyone else on the planet is Pitiful Peons and should get down on their knees and kiss their Precious Asses and where your ass gets raised to come to believe such Un-American Nonsense is beyond our understanding…just way beyond it!

There’s not a Chance in Hell we allow our kids to play for Jeremy Pruitt today or Phil Fulmer in the past because we want our kids to be Decent Human Beings….Not Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks that when they Win want all the credit…and when their Worthless Asses Lose…blame everyone but themselves!

Don’t send your kids to Tennessee folks….if you love them that is…in our humble opinion!

With the Vanderbilt game now cancelled because of Corona Virus the now 2 – 5 Vols have left games against…

Florida
Texas A&M
At Vanderbilt

…and the way Vandy is playing these days that could be 3 losses to end the 2020 season and if that happens the folks in Knoxville with $$$ would be smart to fire…

Fulmer and Pruitt

..and hire a couple of people in the AD and Head Coach positions that actually know what the Hell they are doing and are not…

Worthless Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks!

5.  Scott Frost, Nebraska – Amazingly Scott Frost said he did not see the Huskers Pitiful Performance against Illinois become because why exactly…

Nebraska beat a Pitiful Penn State Team that the Coaches Hot Seat Flag Football Team could Whip the Hell Out of and Make Them Like It?

Is Scott Frost even alive and breathing on this planet?

His Nebraska football team has NOT Hit Damn Anybody in the last 3 seasons and if there is a Softer Football Team in America than the Huskers in 2020 or any other year then we have not seen them playing and that includes the several dozen Powder Puff Women Teams we have seen play games over the years!

If the Nebraska at Iowa game is played on Friday we are going to tell you what is going to happen >

The Once Mighty Nebraska Cornhuskers are Going To Get Their Asses Physically Whipped because Iowa hits harder than Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America and Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America is Tougher than Scott Frost’s Nebraska Football Team!

The 1 – 3 Huskers have left in 2020…

At Iowa
At Purdue
Minnesota

….which looks like at least 2 and maybe 3 losses but let’s say Nebraska finishes at 2 – 5 in 2020 that would leave Frost’s Big Ten record in 3 seasons at…

8 – 17

Really?

That is acceptable to anyone in the Great State of Nebraska?

If it is Shut Down Nebraska Football because there is No Longer Any Damn Reason For It To Exist!

6.  Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – A Virginia Tech alum buddy of ours when asked about what he thinks about Hokies Football responded….

“What is there to think? It’s been average as Hell for years and it ain’t getting any better anytime soon because no one in Blacksburg cares that Va. Tech football is average as Hell.”

Well said and in his 5 th season at Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente is sitting on records of…

Overall:  37 – 25

ACC:  24 – 16

…and after 3 straight losses to Liberty, Miami, and Pitt it looks like the 4 – 5 Hokies are on the verge of Totally Quitting with…

Clemson
Virginia

….left to play in 2020.

Will someone in Blacksburg, Virginia get tired of Va. Tech football being “average as Hell?”

Not likely because reality is just like in other places across America the folks in Blacksburg willing to accept Pitiful Mediocrity and that is Shameful….it’s is So Damn Shameful!

7.  Steve Campbell, South Alabama – With the home loss to South Alabama on Saturday Head Coach Steve Campbell’s records at USA fell to…

Overall:  8 – 26

Sun Belt:  5 – 17

…and the last South Alabama Head Coach Joey Jones was fired after posting the below records…

Overall:  52 – 50

Sun Belt:  18 – 29

….so surely Campbell’s records are not acceptable to the folks at USA…Right?

The 3 – 6 Jaguars have left in 2020….

At Arkansas State
Troy

…which are 2 very tough games so a 3 -8 is real possibility in Steve Campbell’s 3 rd year at South Alabama which wouldn’t be acceptable to the folks at USA….Right?

It wouldn’t be acceptable to us!

8.  Dino Babers, Syracuse – A College Football Team is a very fragile thing in this Age of Social Media and Woke Folks Everywhere You Look and a Head Coach can easily loose his current team and an entire program by just a couple of what seem like innocent mistakes, and in our opinion Dino Babers got on the wrong side of a couple of things after the Orange’s 10 – 3 season in 2018 which has snowballed itself into a 1 – 8 record in 2020 with games still left against…

NC State
At Notre Dame

We have seen and read about Head Coaches losing their teams and in every single instance when the Head Coach was able to turn things around he did something very drastic to change the conversation, such as Paul “Bear” Bryant switching to the wishbone offense after records of…

6 – 5
6 – 5 – 1

….in the 1969 + 1970 seasons which led to a 1970s decade dominated by Alabama with 8 SEC Conference Titles and 3 National Championships.

If we were advising Dino Babers, and assuming Dino is able to hold onto his job at Syracuse to coach again in 2021, we would tell him he’s got to do something to change direction and inner-conversations within the football team and if he doesn’t what has happened the last two years will continue on into the 2021 season.

We have personally seen the above happen, a 180 degree change to turn things around successfully, with a football team, a company, and on an US Navy ship and each time the Current or New Leader/Coach focused on moving the Team or Company or Ship in a new direction that everyone could get behind which became such a focus that it leaves little time for questioning what has happened in the past or is happening in the now until things got better. Also, this is not something you can do by saying, “We are going in a new direction,” but rather this something that is done on such a large scale, like Bryant’s changing to a wishbone offense, that it becomes almost all-encompassing to everyone involved.

9.  Les Miles, Kansas – The 0 – 7 Kansas Jayhawks host the 3 – 4 TCU Horned Frogs which is a game that we give KU little chance to win just like we give KU little chance to win their last 2 games against…

At Texas Tech
Texas

…and if KU does end the 2020 season at 0 – 10 then that would leave Les Miles records at….

Overall:  3 – 18

Big 12:   1 – 16

…and if that is what the folks at Kansas were expecting when they hired Les Miles then….

Shame On Them for Expecting and Accepting Below Pitiful Mediocrity!

10.  Mike Leach, Mississippi State – With the loss to Georgia on Saturday that drops Mike Leach’s record at Mississippi State to….

2 – 5

….and the folks in Starkville fired a coach in Joe Moorhead who in 2 seasons posted records of…

8 – 5
6 – 7

…so of course they see a 2 – 5 record with games still left against…

At Ole Miss
Mizzou
Auburn

….as Unacceptable….Right?

The Georgia Defense is now so porous against Attacking Offenses we were not surprised that the Bulldogs were able to score 24 points on the Dawgs, but can MSU continue scoring in their last 3 games is the question and will have a big say on whether Mike Leach will end up squarely on the Hot Seat going into the 2021 season or if he can begin to turn this ship before it takes on too much H2O that it becomes un-turnable!
