Why is ESPN the only one that is crazy enough to believe Michael Irvin?
It's Mariucci's fault, right Millen?
Noel Mazzone has the best gig in America. Maybe I got him fired when he was on the show before the Arkansas game and he asked me when I was going to get out of Arkansas. I told him I was trying to get to Memphis but he may have heard that there is a fence around it. Noel breaks out in laughter... Noel is now gone. He can thank me later. I love the guy, and he is going to be our college football analyst starting soon. I am paying him $250,000 of Ole Miss money to do it.
Omar and the Mets are getting a fantasy team.
The 72 Dolphins are going to be everywhere soon. I wish they would get a life.
Check out the Arkansas coach taunting the LSU player in Friday's game. Thanks Doug for the link. Classyshibest.gif(712KB)

West Virginia got Pittsnogled. The guy blew it by missing free throw after free throw. WV had #2 Texas on the ropes and missed all their FT's down the stretch. It was a classic basketball game, esp. for it being this early in the year. You may wonder why I am even talking about this, but I have watched a ton of college bball today. Gonzaga looked awesome against Maryland, and Texas won their game (which they should not have). Both will be great home games for Memphis.

It is so clear to me that bacon is superior to sausage. Gary and I had this debate today and I encourage you to vote on the poll on the front page of the site. How can anyone prefer sausage? You vote, and we can decide who you side with on this.
Gary is in Bama for the game tonight and will give you his thoughts on the game and the atmosphere tomorrow. I picked the Tigers to beat Bama, and then beat UCLA, and then get beat by Duke. This is a big game for these guys, especially the young guys that Gary has told you, are not used to losing. Maybe they won't have to deal with it for a week.

I did see UCLA last night and thought as I watched them play New Mexico State that the Tigers could absolutely beat them.
I thought this team look unbelievable last night, and gave everyone real reason to believe this is year will be different.

Deangelo Williams should not have said that "I wanted to play, it was the coach that said I wasn't ready." Untrue. If you believe Tommy, which I absolutely do.
Fans want to think that you would have died to get out on that field, that you could not stand not playing. That it killed you to not be out there against UT on that stage. That's not the impression anyone has gotten... not even the die-hards.
He should not have said that "it's difficult to tell depending on who you are playing."
That sends the message that he was scared, right or wrong, that's what it says. That's fine, he has a career to worry about, but he is on a team now that desperately needs him to try if he can and to not push it off on Tommy as if he was the reason.
Tommy was furious, trust me on this. He thought his guy could go, and he didn't. It really bothered him and that is why he reacted as he did.
Crazed fans can blame the media all they want, but this is not the media. The media helped build this guy into a massive name and local hero. When it's sugar it's sugar...
The kid screwed up. Be nutty if you like, but the truth in this situation is not pretty.
Great kid, great ambassador, great player. He bailed. It adds up to everyone with a brain at this point.
There is now a chink in the under armour.

I got real lucky on Friday when I got a chance to see Elton John at the Forum. The guy was awesome and the sound in the Forum is unreal. By far the best sound of any place in town, and infinitely better than the tin can that was the Pyramid. Elton John puts on a killer show.... very impressive.
Tennessee is now the best 3-5 team in the nation I guess.
It's been an awful season for the Vols, but give them Auburn's schedule and they are they would be 7-2.
How about Vandy vs. Tenn. for a chance to go to a bowl. And it should be a good game.
Bama is going to lose. They did not look good at all on Saurday.
I have been thinking about this, and haven't heard any Grizzly experts mention...
Pau's time off in the summer is beneficial in a two-fold way. It was good for the rest, which everyone sites, but it was also good to not play the style of international basketball. It is a less physical game and not playing there keeps that out of your system. I have been blown away by his aggressiveness. I hope he sustains this.
LeBron James is the best ticket in sports.
maketsakilidisthemascot.com anyone listening yet?
Arizona Coach Mike Stoops will get an extension soon. It's the way of the world now.
Why was Andre Allen suspended? As punishment?
Did Dick Vermeil cry when Larry Johnson scored... I couldn't see a good camera shot.
Thanks for listening.
