Rebels climb

The Rebels move up to No. 21 in the AP Top 25, No. 22 in the USA Today coaches poll.

Next up is No. 1 Alabama in two weeks in Tuscaloosa. The Tide remains a near-unanimous No. 1, while Texas A&M drops to No. 9 in the coaches poll, No. 10 in the AP.

    Rebels climb, Yep but next week they meet the one that controls the top perch, on down their schedule they will meet two more teams that are entrenched in the top ten (10) all team that are in their SEC West, they survive these three then they could face either Georgia, S. Carolina or Florida Gators for the chance to probable play Oregon. That Texas defense is nothing what the will face down the road this season. Good luck Rebels and you “class Act” performance

    JB, you and I have been around long enough to know that a win over a below average Texas is not near what it’ll take to beat Bama, A&M and LSU. It’s not a signature win, because Texas stinks.

    Don’t think for one minute that USC A.D., Pat Haden hasn’t got Freeze on his list. Same for Texas. Freeze and Vandy’s coach, Franklin , are hot right now!

    I was at NU, when Barnett started Camp Kenosha, when the students still tossed marshmallows into the bands tubas, when they started changing the face color on the Rebecca Clock and still remember the crowd doing “the growl”

      Lol….. dang bud, a bit defensive are we???

    In 1995, we had a running back named Darnell Autry. He led us to the conference championship, Rose Bowl and he played a few years in the NFL. I think he still holds the record for single season rush yards.

    Read article on “is it crazy to think Hugh Freeze could be the next coach at Texas.” Oh, and I didn’t write it.

    Don’t be callin me out Sheriff, unless you gotta a warrant. When they come to your front door , how ya gonna come? With your hands on your head or on the trigger of your gun?

      Cid , there is a lot that you don’t understand. One of them is that it is a good thing to have a coach that every other school wants. It is much better than having a coach who will have trouble finding a coordinator job after he is fired.

  • Cid Riley

    Hey Ummbb! My coach, Pat Fitzgerald is in demand and probably is higher on Dodd’s list than Hugh Freeze. So yeah, I kind of do know. Fitzy won’t leave NU on probation, like Freeze will shark fin U.

  • REB

    Ummbb, Just ignore the unlearned, the uncute, shall we say those that have no class. Jealousy is tearing the poor old Turf Guy apart. FINS UP!!!!! RIGHT OVER ALL BLOWHARD MI$$ $TATE TROALS.
