My thoughts on Various Other Sundries...
I have never really teed off on new Hawg head man, Bobby Petrino like some have thought I should. Actually, I think Gene Wojo, of ESPN, did quite enough of that in yesterday's column (hint: read the 520+ angry razorbacker's comments in less than 24 hours). In Atlanta, with the Falcons, Bobby was kind of (how do I say?) outside my sphere of giving a rat's ass. Kinda like when Saban was at Miami. And interestingly enough, Petrino seems more and more like an offensive minded Saban clone everyday.
What do I mean? Well, Petrino may be the ultimate dick-faced asshole, but as long as he's your dick-faced asshole, it's all gravy, right Arkansas and Alabama fans?
How blessed am I to have such "entertaining" coaches in the SEC West this coming season. It's a gosh dang murderers row out there:
LSU: Les "The Hat" Miles - Won the BCS NC game, and he's rightfully on top of the football world...However, he's still largely viewed as an extremely lucky, high functioning retard.
Alabama: Nick M. Effin Saban - Is there anybody this guy can't piss off? Lately it's the head coach at Brentwood Academy speaking out about what a scrote-bag Saban can be on recruiting visits. Add that to the overflowing "comment box of horrors."
Mississippi State: Sylvester "Made Man" Crooms - Credit for having a winning season in your 4th year. Even so, isn't that what coaches are expected to do? Win?!? Crooms is a career .362, but everybody and their mother seems to treats this guy like he's the second coming of Black Santa Claus.
Ole Miss: Houston Damn Nutt - He's yet to open up his patented can of Arkansas Crazy in Oxford, but I've seen the warning signs. Me thinks Houston's crazy is like a crock pot: It may take a while for that Nutty goodness to bubble up, but when it does...It's on like Donna Bragg in the equipment closet.
Arkansas: Bobby "Pinocchio" Petrino - Damn. Nobody ever gonna accuse the SEC West of being "high character." He sadly takes over Saban's crown as SEC Media Scumbag-Newcomer of the year.
Auburn: Tommy Tuberville - Wow, never thought I'd view Tubs as the least volatile, least controversial coach in the division. Even so, Tommy can still be quite the asshat when things don't go his way.
