Ole Miss is up

OLE MISS COACH HOUSTON NUTT


  • "When you start believin', you start achievin'."

  • "I voted for Tim Tebow for first team. My SID, Langston Rogers, will confirm that."

  • On beating Florida in 2008: "We were really down (going into the game). That game gave us confidence, genuine confidence, that we can win. (They lost at South Carolina the next week.) Once we came together as a team, it all fell back to that Florida game."

  • Taking a turn at The Tebow Fountain of Love®: "He doesn't just make promises. (Tebow) puts his team on his back."

  • Is it Tebow vs. Jevan Snead in the league these days?: "I don't want it to be like that with Jevan. It took him a few games to get going, but he's been very, very good since then."

  • "The strength of our team is defensive line."

  • Ole Miss lost three seniors along the OL. "The numbers aren't in line."

  • On being an (alleged) front-runner this season: "At the times we were picked high (at Arkansas), we had some major injuries. You'll see that some major contributors were not on the field. There is some attention. You have to handle it. The way you handle it is to go to work."

  • "I'm excited about it for our players. They're handling it the right way."

  • Atlanta or bust?: "We're in the toughest conference in America. Our staff has been to Atlanta before. Twice. It's a difficult journey. I wouldn't say (Atlanta or bust). You feel like things are getting ready to happen. I wouldn't say it's Atlanta or a downer. I don't believe that."

  • On the SEC's new rule that schools can sign a maximum of 28 players: "Was that because of my number? We don't sign 39 every year. That's not our intention. I wish it was 30, but the rule is the rule. Our numbers are going to work out. We'll be at 25."

  • Nutt was proud of beating LSU last year.

  • Difference between hunter and hunted?: Last year, we had an attitude of we're going to go hunt. We're the hunted now. The great teams expect to be picked No. 1. That's where we want to get to. When you get that much attention, you have to have that much more work ethic."

  • On not getting cocky: "We always talk about being humble. If you're working hard and making plays, you'll get enough attention. We won the summer. We did things the right way. Nobody got arrested this summer, knock on wood." (How awesome is that quote?)

  • Does the WILD REBEL formation give you a massive advantage over the one team on earth that doesn't expect it from you?: "We're very multiple. The Wild Rebel ... gives us a lot of variety."

  • "You can't say: `Vanderbilt: Homecoming day.' Those days are over."

  • Nutt was part of the Coaches To Iraq initiative, which also included Tommy Tuberville. All those coaches, and the soldiers they visited, have the HABOTN's respect. I'm surprised more coaches don't do this.

  • Former Auburn assistant Terry Price is at Ole Miss now. He's coaching defensive line.

THAT'S A WRAP. Next up is Florida coach Urban Meyer at noon-ish.

You mean a camera crew to follow me around and chronicle my every move?

I really am leaving, but I was listening to a student from Florida on ESPNU. I'm sorry, but this Time Tebow worship is sickening. I love me some Auburn football and coaches and players and such, but this complete adoration is embarrassing.

Look how these threads fly. I'm just behind, but at least I'm not on my knees like some bama fans today, and i'm not talking about FSJ.

TIme = Tim, although I do think they believe he can control time

The funniest thing I read yesterday was Tebow walking across water to save a dying swan.

I just busted out laughing when I saw that.

Lance finished 16th in a time trial...sixteenth. I think he's getting old.

Aren't we all, THT?

Blogger Jet said...

I successfully boycotted the Saban thread ... actually I've been in meetings all morning.

Did he feed the media breakfast with five loaves and two fishes?

11:02 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Media Days coverage on ESPNEWS now.

We just aren't doing it on an international stage.

11:02 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

THT- Yes, he is getting old, but it's still impressive that he is competing at this level still after 3 years off.

What's harder to swallow:

Saban worship

or

Tebow worship?

11:03 AM  
Blogger Monica said...

Anyone have a link to a SOS ranking?

11:04 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

Saban worship.

At least Tebow is somewhat likeable.

11:04 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Surprise, Nutt voted for Tebow. People have given their lives for his right to do that.

11:04 AM  
Blogger schofunk said...

Goodwin is in!!! That's exciting.

11:04 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Saban - He's a man!! He's over 40

Tebow - still a kid, but does handle pressure well

"When you start believin', you start achievin'." Oh my gawd.

Welcum to Missippi thar coach

11:04 AM

Neither, it's easier to hate than worship.

11:05 AM  
Blogger Monica said...

worship doesn't bother me
denial makes me queasy

11:05 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Denial of what, Mon?

When my greatgrandaddy knew first hand from a bunker that all wasn't quiet on the western front in the Great War ... when my granddaddy stormed the beach at Normandy as his friends were blown to bits all around him ... when my daddy did his best to repel the Tet Offensive and was hated for it when he came back home ... and when my brother served in the perilous streets of Baghdad ... just know they did it so 12 Southeastern Conference football coaches would vote for the quarterback of their choice on the preseason All-SEC team.

Yesterday was boring.

Today makes me want to hurl.

Wonder what tomorrow will bring?

11:10 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Post of the day, Jet.

Blogger AU1N04 said...

Jet - That brought a tear to my eye!

11:12 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

Sensi ... thanks.

The truth in my family is that was my grandfather's real experience in World War I.

My dad served in the South Pacific in WWII.

"Nobody got arrested."

Congrats!

That is an awesome quote.

I am going to list "not getting arrested" as an accomplishment at my next meeting at work.
