Friday Fire: Past or Present, Who Do You Want Coaching Your NFL Team?

Posted in Blogroll on January 28th, 2011 by Michael Tillery

Just something I’m throwing out there because of all the coaching vacancies lately. Grambling St. was the first school I knew about. Yes, there was a house full of my Pop’s boys checking out USC and the Juice, but I was just a little lad and was appreciative to be hanging out with the fellas so I was excited only when the fellas screamed “Go Juice!”. Eddie Robinson affected me in another way during my formative years. He was more than a coach. He was a soul of legend who instilled everything missing in the mind of today’s man. I wanted to play for him and took it to heart when he passed…hard. 200 of his players went on to play in the NFL. Crazy number considering Grambling was a 1-AA team. He owned a record of 408–165–15 during his 56 years coaching at the only school he ever loved.

Notes from TNT NBA Tip-off – January 27, 2011: All Star Starters Announced

Posted in Blogroll on January 28th, 2011 by Michael Tillery

Do you remember this dunk and everything in San Antonio sick with it? It’s not usual a man gets to exact revenge on one he so idolized as a high school player years before only to get dissed the first time he meets him. Karma…hmmm. Which gets me to wonder…Who would you dunk on? Visions of sugarplums huh? Anyway, anyway, somehow, someway Blake Griffin should have been named a starter in some sort of secret balloted, fan gimme gimme, he’s gonna dunk on your whole family for all to see, type joint. (Whatcha gonna do Black Ice?) Griffin, who reminds me of The Thing, is absolutely super strato but I have to agree with what Chuck said last night that he’s not a rookie. Anyone who has the op to lift weights in a professional sports facility for a year and sit on an NBA bench for a year would be a fool to not soak up everything soul rock and still be on the clock. Ok, ok…to the voting…Fans got most of these right but of course Yao Ming’s NBA ghost continues to chew up votes in an alarming  but somehow almost extinct rate. Voting breakdown and Tracy Morgan’s TNT moment not so good close the piece.
