Re: Alabama quarterback paid 7 figures already and he has never played

I wonder if this could lead to discrimination lawsuits. Say Billy Bob Chevy in Tuscaloosa is paying the quarterback $25,000 to appear on a billboard promoting his cars. If there is a women’s basketball player who also is chosen to endorse cars by Billy Bob Chevy, and he only pays her $3,000 to appea...

Re: Alabama quarterback paid 7 figures already and he has never played

Nick Saban can’t be happy about this. He’s an old-school coach. He preaches dedication, being focused, no distractions. His quarterback is now being distracted by all this money thrown at him. Instead of spending time solely on the practice field devoted to learning and executing all the plays, the ...

Alabama quarterback paid 7 figures already and he has never played

According to the SEC Media Days, the new projected starting quarterback for Alabama has been paid “seven figures” (which would be over a million dollars) by companies he’s advertising with to promote their products. He’s never played one single down in college football. He was a five star but a lot ...

Value of a good catcher like C.J. is invaluable

It will be sad losing C.J. The plays he made as catcher were incredible. Several times his throws to second to catch runners trying to steal were perfect and the opposing team’s runners were dumbfounded that the second baseman or shortstop had the ball before they even started sliding. I was at the ...

OT: Which ex-Vanderbilt player now in MLB is in the best situation?

College baseball is over so I turn my attention to the pros. I used to be an adamant MLB fan. I memorized all the stats of all the players. I went to Braves games, spring training games in Florida and Sounds games regularly. Then they had the strike in the 90’s and I started losing interest. Then th...

We swung at bad pitches all game

The first inning, Bradfield had a 3-2 count and swung at ball four to strike out. The next two batters took pitches and walked. Our next batter swung at a low pitch and grounded into a double play. The rest of the game, when Bednar was pitching, when we took pitches we drew a few walks, but most of ...

Re: What’s with the ump meetings and then replay checks

Why did the ump start off the game with a talk to Harding? One would think that if he was going to act spasmodic before the pitch that he should do the same every time. If that was the reason for the visit, ump didn't get the message across. And why wasn't the MSU coach involved? I had the TV sound...

What’s with the ump meetings and then replay checks

The games take too long because of the countless ump meetings and then replay checks. Anytime there’s a questionable call, why do all six umps have to meet and talk about it for five minutes? What do the umps in the outfield have to say about whether the Mississippi State player fouled a ball off hi...

Corbs’ answers when he’s interviewed are hilarious

Corbs had me laughing again tonight when he was interviewed in between innings.

The ESPN announcer asked him if he started thinking ahead in his mind.

Corbs said “My mind can’t think like that. I just take it one inning at a time.”

It was a stupid question and Corbs’ answer was hilarious.

1-0 is winning convincingly?
Considering they did it against Leiter when he had struck out so many in the game, they see it as “convincing.”

“It’s not fair!”

The ESPN announcers just had a dialogue in which they basically whined and bellyached about how unfair it was that N.C. State had to drop out of the CWS. “They lost 23-1 to Arkansas, the number one team in the nation, and then came back and won two straight to get to Omaha! Then they won convincingl...

OT: Aluminum bats or wood bats in college?

This has been debated ad nauseum, but what does everyone think? In college they allow aluminum bats. But when you get to the majors (or minors) they are not allowed. Batters have to adjust to wooden bats. The issue was that line drives off aluminum bats can seriously injure or even kill pitchers. Th...

Re: VU picks Joe Fisher's replacement(s)

IMG is a third-party agency/selection committee which chose Kevin Ingram and the others. But it is my understanding that ADCSL told Fisher to resign or he would be fired. The university was paying his salary and they have the right to fire him. After Mason was fired. Joe Fisher made critical remarks...

Peyton is one of very few to never be charged with a felony.
But he mooned a female trainer. She sued UT and they settled out of court. That probably cost the university a pretty penny.
