The Georgia vs. South Carolina contest was not your average game, not only was this game a top 25 match-up, but it also blurred one of the toughest conference’s standings. This high scoring affair featured nonstop action to a packed house at Williams-Brice Stadium. The talent in the Southeastern Conference is always elite, but this game had an abundance of top- notch prospects looking to make their mark. Provided with the perfect stage, some young athletes seemed to rise to to the occasion specifically for the Gamecocks. But there were also a few guys that were far less impressive. (more…)

It was a rare road trip outside the Eastern Time zone for a SEC team, and the Auburn Tigers proved game. They survived 20-14 over Kansas State, thanks mostly to K-State’s atrocious kicking and plethora of missed opportunities by the Wildcats.

I did not evaluate Auburn QB Nick Marshall but will get to him at a later time. (more…)

If the massive free agent contracts of Jairus Byrd, T.J. Ward, and Donte Whitner in free agency have taught us anything, it’s that NFL teams take great value in the safety position. In order to stop the increasingly popular passing offense, defenses must have a do it all athlete in the back of their secondary. Free safeties are seen as more coveted because of their ability to match up to receivers one on one. Strong safeties typically see more action in the box and covering tight ends. (more…)

Sept. 11 2001 was my second day on the job of teaching 7th grade social studies in Petersburg, Virginia. I had just left a very decent and lucrative job that I enjoyed for many years in some vain attempt to reboot my life and put my college degree to use.

We only got 3 channels but they were all the same pictures that day. (more…)
