Guess what just became the best game of week 4.

Post by Mike

No it isn't the upcoming 3:30 match up between Tennessee and the Lizards although this one should tell us something about the Eastern challengers.

The real intrigue this week will be in Baton Rogue when Auburn takes a former light fingered Bulldog corner back into that mad house to play QB in Guss' freakshow offense against another former Bulldog that also had issues with where he put his hands.

LSU starting QB Zach Mettenberger was asked to leave UGA after he lied to CMR about grabbing a girl's booty while partying in Valdosta.

Second Chance U moved Nick Marshall to QB after he was asked to leave UGA for thinking his teammates property was communal. Damned socialist! On Saturday he toppled mighty Mississippi State with a late game winning drive after only five weeks of practice in the new system. Can anyone say Heisman?

Just kidding, but the Auburn faithful are busy wetting themselves and see visions of Cam II dancing in their heads.

They could, however, do us a solid this Saturday and play LSU hard. Play them to triple over time. Hit them hard and wear them down. I'll even throw in a War Damn Eagle for ya!

Longhorns have made one bad move after another.

 Texas is on a bigger losing streak than you think
Off the field the Longhorns have:

  • -          Missed out on RGIII
  • -          Missed out on Johnny Football
  • -          Missed out on Jameis Winston
  • -          Singled handedly blown up the Big-12 with the Longhorn Network. Remember that greedy grab forced A&M, Mizzou, Nebraska, and Colorado to leave the conference.

Then there are the on field issues:

  • -          A loss to BYU after allowing 550 rushing yards to the Cougars.
  • -          An embarrassing 44-23 home loss to Ole Miss. Of course only 10,000,000 Longhorn Network Subscribers has access, and maybe 2,000,000 actually watched the game.

How much longer will this go? Last season I thought the Texas faithful would politely ask Mack to resign. Now I think they may storm the athletic facility and drag him out.

Fire Mack Brown web sites are popping up, including this one:

The Post Season is near.

Post by Mike
The post season is nearly upon us and the Braves cling to a two game lead for home field advantage over the Dodgers.

It appears Atlanta will have to muddle through without the services of Beachy. He is getting shut down for the year, so... Minor, Teheran, and Medlen will be it. Maybe Maholm if Fredi goes with four starters.

Heyward is taking BP, but no live action yet. If the Braves could clinch by Monday or Tuesday JHey may get some live at bats by the end of the week. Getting him back in line up and hitting lead off with the same authority he had when that fast ball crushed his jaw may prove difficult, but Fredi has to try.

In the 28 games he played in after the All Star break Heyward was hitting .317 with 6 HR and 16 RBI. His WAR# is a 3.1.

If he makes it back to form, his presence improves the pitches to J Upton and has a cascading effect down the line up.

I predict that if JHey can play and hit .300, the Braves will play in the World Series. Without him, we could still get there, but it will be tough.

Post season schedule.

Just a quick thought....  Will somebody in Athens finally stand up and get mad enough to win the game tomorrow? If so, who? Murray? Bobo? GRANTHAM?????? If you score 35 on the road at night vs #8, you should win the game.

Has this ever happened?

Post by Mike

The Braves have the best record in baseball at 83-53 and have a two game lead over the Dodgers for home field advantage in the playoffs.

The team has been unbelievably resilient. Challenges have been hurdled – injuries mounted, and then there is this:

B J Upton - .193 AVG, .275 OBP, 9 HR, 24 RBI

Dan Uggla - .184 AVG, .310 OBP, 21 HR, 53 RBI

Has any team ever won the NL Pennant with two starters batting below Mendoza?
