Topics I've Started

Branden Oliver was a Colt before he was a Charger?

13 October 2014 - 08:29 PM

I heard someone mention that this morning and I think it was the first time I had heard it.


Googled it and yes, it is correct. Sort of.


Was brought in by the Colts after the draft for a workout but was not offered a contract.





The next Florida coach

Who do Gator fans want?


I have heard names like Gruden and Stoops but they just do not seem realistic.


The two most realistic names, Dan Mullen and Dan Quinn.


Dan Mullen seems to be the most popular, for obvious reasons. This could be the best season in the history of the Mississippi State program. A team loaded with seniors, so this could be his best year there. Get out and get rich while his value is at it's peak level. Money is not an issue for Florida.


Dan Quinn is another. Current Seahawks DC. Was the Florida DC for two seasons. He has more NFL experience and could be in line for an NFL head coaching job.


Outside of that, it seems sort of open.


If they go the "mid-major" coach route like Auburn did with Malzahn and Ole Miss with Hugh Freeze, it could be Bill Clark at UAB or Justin Fuente from Memphis. I doubt either would generate much excitement in Gainesville but you could do worse.

Preston Smith DL/Mississippi State

He's sort of come out of nowhere this year.


In the first three games this year, he won three SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week awards.


And last night at LSU he had 5 tackles, 2 TFL and a sack.


Impressive start to his senior season for him.

Do we miss Eugene Monroe?

The Ravens already giving up on Arthur Brown?

09 September 2014 - 12:14 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have been as successful a drafting organization as there is in the NFL, but one of their recent high picks apparently can be had.
According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, 2013 second-round linebacker Arthur Brown has been floated in recent trade talks.
#Ravens ILB Arthur Brown has been the subject of trade discussions with other teams, according to league sources.

Brown was a healthy scratch in Week 1's home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, falling behind the team's first-round pick this season, rookie C.J. Mosley, and veteran Albert McClellan on the depth chart.
