    Oh how I would like to see that limp dick fired. What a loser. I think I like Butters better and that shows how I feel about that no good dip shyte.

    I only wish that was true but luck doesn't run like that. You have to root a clown like that out. They never leave on their own and I can't see his buddy Stricklin firing him. What NFL team is dumb enough to take him.

      The opt out thing started with players that were sure-fire first round picks, like Pitts, opting out if it was a meaningless bowl game. And that happened after a couple of big names got major injuries in them. I can certainly understand the argument and the concern - we are talking multi-generation wealth here, if someone plays their cards right with their money.

      However, then it developed into non-first round picks saying "no thanks", then players that wouldn't even get drafted doing it. I never played football but from what everyone tells me, the only reason you go through all the crap is for games - they are the payoff for all the work. So wouldn't you think these guys would want to play a nationally televised game against a big opponent? It's just weird.

      Also, what most of us thought was that the players that weren't playing would still be at the game on the sideline encouraging their teammates. Pitts not only wasn't there, he made the retarded decision to draw attention to that fact with that ridiculous video. It was tone deaf, selfish, and stupid.

      Here's where we are: it's only a matter of time until a major NFL prospect decides to opt out of a PLAYOFF game, a game that matters. That's when this stuff will really hit the fan. What if Trevor Lawrence, the consensus #1 pick, decided to opt out of this playoff game? It would officially be the end of college football as we know it. And it's going to happen.

        Only when the fans tune out and ratings dip, which in turn leads to declining ad revenue, will there be a call for change. It has to impact the sport where it hurts most, the pocket.

        Even then, I doubt it. The ACLU will get involved, a players union will be formed, and we’ll be stuck forever with scrubbie bowls.

          He’s like me. We feel the need to post when we need to pee. It’s a bladder to brain thing that only us old farts get. That’s usually at 2:30 in the morning.

            No, that’s just you. Oxking was still partying, ringing in 2021 with fine bourbon, reflecting on 2020 and wondering how he could have spawned an offspring that barely made it to midnight before going to bed.

            At least that’s my mental picture of him.

            He doesn’t imbibe.

            :bwahaha:

            Oxking went to bed at 9 PM like he always does. However, his bladder gets him up and he stays up. Usually it's 3:30 to 5 AM.....2:30 is early even for him. :lol:

            Also, just like his frog's testicle of a son, oxking doesn't drink. I didn't write "imbibe" like 78 just did, because no one knows what the hell that means.

              You could have let me hang on to the myth of Oxking just a little bit longer. Next you’ll tell me that the Easter Bunny doesnt exist either.

                I think Grimes will be a workout queen at the combine. That will overcome the lack of production. He wont be undradted.

                Slaton will go 3rd roundish, unless he screws up interviews. I dont think he is the brightest dude. Remember he barely qualified. that doesn't matter as much for a defensive tackle as opposed to say a linebacker or safety who has to prove the NFL he's smart enough to understand the intricacies of the playbook.

                Campbell? :lmao2: uh...... sure. whatever. he's not going to do well with the combine and his game tape is a guy who stands up vertically and pushes straight ahead.

                  You dodged a bullet, man. I cut that skank loose after I walked in and surprised her while she was filming a "Boobs and Bukkake" double feature. My doctor and I were both relieved and a bit surprised, given this shocking development, at my clean bill of health.

                  So in case you find yourself back there and actually able to "function", likely for one of the few times in your life, my advice is to wear a bag and shower with bleach when you get home.

                  And my new fiance, Aletta Touchme, and I can't wait to tie the knot in June.

                    The only reason why I know what that means is because in the South Park trilogy of episodes (or them put together as a movie) "Imaginationland".

                      I wanted to post something in this thread, but Alex already stated how I feel about the opt outs so I'll just say well said sir, well said.

                        I have no problem with them opting out.

                        Just reimburse the University for your scholarship and we’ll call it square.

                          Mullen hung Trask out to dry when he fvvcked up the LSU strategy. Had we smoked them, we might have beaten Bama.

                          But the real problem is that everybody saw what happened with Tua. Playing a meaningless game when millions are on the line is not an option anymore. What if they played and had a season ending injury. That might be the difference between having 4 houses and a yaht and pumping gas for minimum wage. They quit, but next year they will get paid millions.

                          How exactly does this work?

                          We sign like 30 5* free agents the week before Alabama?

                          What is supposed to make this sub Auburn talent team suddenly become elite?

                          We played them well after sh!tting our pants a week prior. Bama sometimes looses. Sometimes people get lucky.

                            Ohhh.... so we just got unlucky 4 times.

                            No, we didnt play them well. They were just kind and saw no need to score for about 2 quarters.
