I know drafting an offensive lineman in the first round isn’t always the sexiest pick, but the Bengals o-line has been a disaster ever since Mike Brown fucked up the Andrew Whitworth situation a few years ago. Jonah Williams appears to have everything you want in a franchise left tackle. He’s played at the highest level (Alabama, maybe you’ve heard of them) against the best talent in college and there are endless stories about his work ethic and desire to be the very best in the game.
Thanks to this horrendous targeting call, LSU’s best defensive player will miss the first half of the Alabama game when the Crimson Tide make the trip to Baton Rouge in two weeks. You know, the game that could shape the College Football Playoff landscape. Steeler fans probably want Devin White banned from football, but anyone else watching this game can clearly see this wasn’t a targeting penalty. At best you could say this was a slightly late shove. Even that wouldn’t have warranted a flag in my opinion, but what do I know? Continue reading
Here I am, just minding my own business, enjoying a Friday afternoon after a long grinding work week and Alabama drops this bullshit on us. Talk about ruining a guy’s weekend.
Shoutout to this girl that got booted from Barstool Idol for showing up late. You have no idea but I use this GIF more often than I’d like to admit. We’re not hiring, sorry.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming. Continue reading
Congratulations to the newest married couple down south. All this poor guy wanted to do was get drunk with his buddies, say “I do” without falling over or pissing himself and eat some Alabama cake. Roll Damn Pie. I couldn’t think of a play on the word ‘cake’. That’s on me and for that, I apologize. Continue reading
SI.com – Former Tennessee coach Butch Jones is joining the Alabama coaching staff, but he won’t be on the field.
Instead, Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said he is “an intern, an analyst” after practice Tuesday.
“I guess we could have several names for it, Saban said. “He can’t coach on the field. He can work with us off the field. And today was actually the first time he was cleared by the NCAA. We have these rules and I don’t even know what they’re called, like we can’t hire high school coaches. We can’t hire people that have recruited other players that we’re recruiting and all that. You have to go through a process with the NCAA, and that finally got completed today.”
When I first read the headline that Butch Jones was going to “intern” at Alabama, I almost pulled a muscle from laughing. Or was that from when I tried to get out of my desk chair too quickly? Either way, a muscle was almost pulled and I’m kinda sore right now. Anywhooo – the titles were a little misleading when news broke on his new gig, but the fact of the matter remains: Butch Jones has turned into a puddle of suck in recent years and this might be as far rock bottom as a coach can go.

Well, it is official AJ McCarron has won his grievance case against the Bengals and this means he is officially a free agent as of March. This also means that the botched trade with the Browns, as if it wasn’t bad enough, will sting just a little bit more. Continue reading
