  • All alone

    Defensive coordinators despise many things: roughing the passer calls, pass interference calls, face mask calls, just to name a few. However, what many (and me, as a lover of hard-nose defense) may hate and despise the most is a blown coverage. It doesn't matter when it happens (though it'd sting if it occurred in the final minutes in a close game).

    As outdoorsmen we’re often faced with rants from non-hunters. They do have some valid points… like “Do you have to hunt to eat?”
    The answer to that would be (since we’re being honest here) no. You can buy meat in the stores! Yes, but never forget, that hamburger and steak didn’t commit suicide. Somebody somewhere did that beef in!
    So, I guess we hunt simply ‘cause we can. We fish for the same reason, ‘cause we can.

    By Larry Vaught

    Alabama coach Avery Johnson, a former NBA player and coach, thinks Tyler Ulis is already better than some current NBA players.
    “He is a pro. He can play on the professional level. He is good. He can do everything,” Johnson said after Ulis had 19 points and 10 assists against his team last week. “He is a pure point guard that can hold his own. He takes charges. He throws his body in there. As a coach you don’t like coaching against him. I see lot of things I did as a player in him.”

    Do you ever hear a coach say, "hustle!" to one of their players? Do you ever hear a coach, fan, or players talk about hustle? "They didn't hustle! You got to hustle! Hustle! Hustle! Hustle!"
