    There’s nothing cool about Carmello Anthony. He’s not on the same level as LeBron, Kobe, or Durant. He’s a diva. He’s more worried about his arm sleeves, headbands, and tattoos than he is about playing basketball.

    At least it sounds like we won’t have to deal with a QB controversy. Max Smith starter. Newton, backup if Smith gets hurt. I hope they redshirt both the Freshmen.

    If the O-Line can hold up this year, we should have a good offense.

    Matt, if there was ever any doubt that you are like Larry David…today’s story about the guy stealing your $2 and showing up later in the day to taunt you about it truly a Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm moment.

    Matt! Common sense says you do not leave $2.00 on a counter at a gas station. Use that smart Lawyer brain of yours!

    Does it really matter that they lost in 97? They were the national runner-ups by losing in overtime while winning it in 96 and 98. In my opinion, that doesn’t change that it was possibly the best run by a college program ever.

    We would hate them at first, but at some point the reasonable fans would move on.
