    That's a lot of self-esteem to invest in something she doesn't even watch.

    For all we know the regular callers are compensated. Regardless, Jerome was best. Really hard time following the conversation and understanding him but I did agree with one of the things I heard. He said he talks too much trash.

    He accepts the participation trophy for Bama fans this week.

    Those people are in complete meltdown... and over a loss that really has no impact on anything. If they win, they're still in... and they will.

    Actually, that loss does impact bama's chances. If an undefeated Bama lost to an undefeated Georgia in the SEC championship game, they probably still get in. If they lose now, they probably won't.

    Yes, I guess that is true. Still, they completely control their own destiny. It was truly fun listening to them have total breakdowns on their calls.

    Tuesday, today, Finebaum blames (paraphrasing) Mullen for the lost prestige of the bowl games like the Cotton Bowl, because of how Mullen treated that game.

    Finebaum said Mullen called that Cotton Bowl game a "glorified scrimmage" after losing big-time to Oklahoma and not getting "half the team" to dress out for the game.

    Wow... that's a lot of blame on Mullen for one bowl game. But I have to admit, as a HBC and not being able to convince 16 missing players or so to dress and play for the Cotton Bowl was NOT the Gator Standard.

    Wow. Our Head Coach is super influential!

    One comment after one game and he dismantled the entire prestige of the entirety of bowl games as whole. This guy is powerful, folks.

    Or, hear me out, Finebaum is a weasel and nobody should ever give a sh*t what he thinks anyway. Man looks like he’s never touched a football in his life, (i.e. John Clayton).

    Yeah I’m going with option 2.

    The two points are not mutually exclusive.

    Point #1 is intentionally exaggerated, but the sense of what the poster you're quoting wrote is correct: it was a failure of leadership that so many players did not show for the game and that the players who did show were so obviously unprepared. The coaching staff seemed to make it clear that they did not care. The players followed suit in not caring. That lack of caring flowed right into recruiting season, and the recruits seemed to want to go to teams that cared. That's an oversimplification, but that's what it looks like.

    Point #2 is spot on; it just so happens that Feinbaum was correct this time.

    It's a Volzheimers variant. They can't remember the national championships they've won after not even going to Atlanta. I'm sick of watching them crying the blues after one loss like it's the end of the world. When you have a guaranteed mulligan in your pocket, act like it.
