    Hey, screw you! We can't help it that Knoxville is where ACLs go to die. Speaking of injuries, I LOVED what SDS had to say about Connor Shaw

    http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/2013/what-happened-to-you-on-saturday-week-9-3/

    "Shaw is a very good quarterback and the most enjoyable to watch (Non-Manziel Division) in the conference. The problem is his bones are hollow and his joints are held together with yarn and old Juicy Fruit. He’s listed at 6-1 209, but in reality, he is closer to 4-9 77 lbs. The breakdown of those 77 pounds: 41 pounds of heart, 30 pounds of testicles, and the remaining 6 is the aforementioned hollow bones. He’s completely hairless. But when he’s physically able to play, he’s everything fans love about college football. On Saturday night with the season on the line, Connor Shaw was the best he’s ever been.

    It wouldn't be near the game it was last year, but few games would be. Last year was incredible. I would like a rematch, and have us at full strength...well...minus Marshall and Mitchell.

    The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry is still a ways off...we have to get past UF first. Check back with me after that game and I'll let ya know what I think our chances are.

    Everything sounds good for us to get Gurley, Bennett, Conley, and JHC back for Florida. If we can just STAY healthy...

    Took the words out of my mouth... well, off of my keyboard, anyway.

    He's not hitting the head. The one in the UT game looks like it at first glance, but look closely and you'll see it's shoulder pads. The KY block is clearly shoulder pads.


    Yup. Yup.

    I don't know... I think you guys beat MSU and Florida, and that's all you have left in the SEC. You have the tie-breaker against Mizzou already, and you only have two SEC losses, right? Doesn't that mean that all Missouri has to do is lose one more game and you're back in control? They still play Tennessee, KY, Ole Miss and TAMU. They'll drop TWO of those or more.

    I'd be more worried about Georgia. They have a tie-breaker with you. If Mizzou loses two of those games, and Georgia wins out, it won't matter what S Carolina does from here out, it'll be Georgia in ATL.

    His performance in the 4th quarter Saturday night is what scares me most about playing them in the SECC. I've seen what a hot quarterback can do to our team, not to mention a USCe QB. I'd rather play Mizzou or UGA again.

    I read yesterday that Conley was doubtful for UF. Which sucks if that's true since he's been our only consistent guy that's left. Not sure how effective Bennett will be with the time missed? On the bright side, maybe, hopefully Davis will have established some timing with Murray and can be utilized more.

    I'm just afraid of being one dimensional like we were against Vandy. I know having Gurley back will be a big plus but if we can't throw it then UF will stack the box.

    We one upped ya'll with the Vandy game. :eek:

    I just heard on the radio that a 3 way tie goes to the east record. Unless Mizzou gets upset by UT then their only conference loses from here out would potentially be against West teams. I thought a 3 way tie went to BCS rankings. Either way we're screwed, not that it will matter. Although I would love to continue the East streak.

    But (a healthy) gurley can run through most of them.

    3 way tie goes to the BCS rankings.

    The complete letter:

    I Love The Ducks. I Hate Duck Fans.

    I, for the first time, attended a ducks game as spectator. I was excited to experience tailgating, cheering, and being with friends, rather than the seriousness that comes with preparing for a game. My buddy, whom I had given tickets to all throughout my time as a player, decided he wanted to pay me back and offer me tickets in corner end-zone seats as a regular fan. I accepted his offer with enthusiasm.

    We enjoyed seeing friends, shaking hands, and sharing drinks with fellow supporters.

    My friend and I took our seats where I soon became acquainted with the most ignorant people in all of college football. Directly behind me were a couple of drunk (expletive) who criticized Marcus' ability to throw the football, DeAnthony's ability to run the football, the lineman's ability block, and the coach's ability to analyze film and call plays. After hearing so much ignorant (expletive), I turned around to tell the "fans" to chill the (expletive) out. Marcus had overthrown a receiver on a tough play and the spectator made comment, "Hey, Marcus! Throw it inbounds, dumbass!" in, which I finally had enough, and turned around and asked if he would like to get down there and take Marcus' place. The man responded, "No". Then I asked if we were all still rooting for Oregon, in which he responded in an aggressive, irrelevant and incoherent manner and so I decided to discontinue the conversation I had started with him.

    I was then verbally attacked by other spectators saying, "you need to keep your (expletive) mouth shut, because you don't know (expletive) about football." They claimed that I didn't know that they had coached college football, and that I had no idea what I was talking about. Ironic to say the least, considering my background and what you know of me, what my old teammates know of me, and what my old coaches know of me.

    Not too long after, a woman a couple seats down yelled for 10 minutes straight about how the players were playing like "(expletive)". The coaches were being "(expletive)". The refs were being "(expletive)". All during the time I was telling my friend how embarrassing it was to have her on our side. And then I started hearing laughter from the surrounding crowd and encouragement of that behavior. Is this really what goes on in the stands? Is this really the type of people we attract???

    I remember walking in from fall camp practice and talking to my teammates about how similar our lives were to the TV series Spartacus. We were slaves. We were paid enough to live, eat, and train... And nothing more. We went out on the field where we were broken down physically and mentally every day, only to wake up and do it again on the next. On the outside, spectators placed bets and objectified us. They put us on pedestals and worshipped us for a short time, but only as long as we were winning. In the end, we were just a bunch of dumbass (racial slur) for the owners to whip, and the rich to bet on.

    What I described is a business, I know. It's how it works, and it is something we understand as athletes entering the system, as (expletive) up as it is. For many people entering that system, it's better than what life has to offer elsewhere. So they take it. But having been on the outside now, to witness this disgusting display of "support", I know that I want no (expletive) part of it. I will never attend a duck game as a spectator again. I am disgusted by duck fans and I will sit back and observe from afar with high hopes for the player's success and understanding of their sacrifice, without having to hear the spoiled woes of ignorant fans.

    I will always love the ducks: my coaches, my teammates, my brothers and family. The rest... Go (expletive) yourselves.

    The ESPN Magazine 2012 college football preview cover called out the SEC and looked to a PAC12 team to de-throne the conference, a little like that cover does. Didn't work out too well for USC last year.
