There are only six games, on the slate, involving teams from the Southeastern Conference in Week Five. The marquee game, again, finds our Auburn Tigers as a participant. The Tigers take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Jordan-Hare Stadium, on Pat Dye Field, at 7 PM Eastern time and will be televised on ESPN (No U, no 2, etc). We will make our pick on … Continue reading Week Five SEC Picks: Time to Bully the Dogs
Yessiree bobby! There will be two games, involving SEC teams, in which both teams are ranked. Number three Georgia will host number seven Notre Dame and number eight Auburn travels to College Station to battle Texas A&M. I will get to those two picks later on. Let me update you on how proceedings have gone through three weeks of the 2019 college football season. Last … Continue reading Week Four SEC Picks: The Dawgs and the Dame; Aggies and Auburn, and MORE!
Last week I was dang near perfect. The lone miss was my upset pick of Vandy over Purdue. That’s ok. You gotta pick upsets. My season total now stands at 22-4. That computes to an .846 percentage. I’ll take it and let’s rock! No time to tarry as Week Three is up-on us! But, first of all, this… AT&T/Direct TV/Uverse is making noise about not … Continue reading Week Three SEC Football Picks
I was 9-3 in Week One Picks last week. That’s 75% but not great for what is, typically, a 85% to 90% week, as there are always more than a few mismatches on opening weekend. Tennessee-Georgia State (that powerhouse from downtown Atlanta which has only been playing football for about 10 years) was, on paper, was one of those games. The mighty Panthers threw a … Continue reading Week Two SEC Football Picks
We got a little taste of SEC football last weekend when Florida squeaked past Miami in one of the YOU-gliest football games I have ever seen. It actually hurt my eyes to watch that debacle. One team won, Florida, and one team lost, Miami, and that was about all you can say about it. The final tally was, Gators 24, Miami 20. I had the … Continue reading Week One SEC Football Picks
SEC Media Days have now come and gone. I listened to all 14 coaches, their spiel and the questions they answered, and I was impressed with every coach and what he had to say about his team. They all seemed to have a vision and a master plan for their respective squads. And the league’s coaching fraternity appears to be a very strong group, top … Continue reading SEC MEDIA DAYS – RANDOM TAKES
I haven’t written anything for a long while. I did not do much writing during football season. Just a handful of articles. I made an attempt to pen a column before the Auburn-Georgia SEC Championship Game. I got two paragraphs in and quit. Motivation at an all time low. And I didn’t care. Bone dry. So here we are. It’s January 24th and me and … Continue reading Dare We “Ramble” Once More?
I’m currently working on a Dum Dum. The sucker! Some call these tasty treats lollipops. We did not refer to them as such in Lower Alabama when I was growing up, We called them suckers. That’s what they shall remain in my frame of reference. We did not call our tasty carbonated beverages soda or, God forbid, pop, either. They were “Co-Colas.” It didn’t matter … Continue reading Ramblin’ 5/10/17
Have mercy! It’s been far too long since we rambled! The truth of the matter is that I have been doing a whole lot of reading (James Lee Burke) and very little writing. I need to do both. We shall strive to do better. It’s April 20th or 4/20. 4/20 is a huge day for many who partake of cannabis sativa. Here is an article … Continue reading Ramblin’ 4/20/17 (And the Summer of ’73)
Sit down, turn on the computer, and write. That’s the system today. I have no preconceived course, agenda, or axe to grind. Just be. “Let it grow, let it grow, Let it blossom, let it flow In the sun, the rain, the snow, Love is lovely, let it grow” This from the Eric Clapton ‘461 Ocean Boulevard’ album. ‘Let It Grow’. That record released in … Continue reading Time to Let It Ramble
