I'm annoyed when people tap their brakes for no reason. Also when they wont pass or move over. That annoys the hell out of me. Or two cars driving side by side 5 miles below the speed limit on a two lane interstate with a parade of cars behind them that only want to drive the speed limit. Fuck them! Those people are total assholes.

Indeed!!! A pox on their houses!!!

I'm pretty sure he takes that as a complement.

What really annoys you is that LSU is undefeated and ranked No. 1 in some polls, while your Longhorns are bowl eligible.

Let me clear about Tom Herman. He proved that I know nothing about picking coaches. I wanted him in Baton Rouge, but I'm so tickled that I was wrong. Herman played the two schools against each other. I want Texas to return to prominence because I think that college football is better when Texas is strong (I maintain the same things about Michigan and USC).

I think that Texas is better than 6-5. Texas played LSU tough. I wrote after that game being highly complimentary of your QB, who I think is an exciting player. Will Herman be successful? Time will tell. However, let's just say that he's off to a bumpy start in a place with little patience (except for Mack Brown, who you should have fired at least three years prior to when you did) for mediocre results. Query how this impacts recruiting. I guarantee you that it will have some adverse effect on recruiting.

 I am elated and highly surprised by Orgeron's success. I mean he was 10-25 at Ole Miss (where it's impossible to win except for if you're cheating or Johnny Vaught is the coach). He's running things like a CEO and hiring (and paying) some of the brightest minds in college football. It will be interesting to see if we can retain Joe Brady. If I have to choose which to retain, either Brady or Aranda, I'm keeping Brady. LSU is winning despite a swiss cheese defense.

If they really want to honor Jeter, they should make casting a really easy ballot look difficult.

Or make the ballot out of wood, to resemble the wooden statue that Jeter was for the last six to eight years of his career.

Yuli has been a great addition. Fuck “racist gesture.” He seems to be loved in the clubhouse.

Amen. People forget that he came from a totalitarian country where he had no money. Being rich and free simultaneously for the first time must be like drinking from the fire hydrant.

All of this is so much BS. There’s so much talent on this team. I’m not even going to read anymore about it. Take a draft pick... whatever....

LSU almost stomped their collective dick last night.  But they just grazed it.

The operative word is almost. I thought that we outplayed them and outcoached them and should have beaten them by two touchdowns. We certainly would have had the game been in Tiger Stadium, but we were in the bowels of Bryant-Denny.

Well, I am grateful that we finally got the Bama losing streak to end. The end was more exciting than I wanted. I give major props to Tua, who played his hurt ass off. I don't know how wise it was to have played him so soon after surgery and what it could mean in future games, but I suspect that Saban knew that he had no shot with Tua.

He switches allegiances when it suits him.

Exactly. He's like the territorial tribal fighters in Afghanistan. Fuck Nolan Ryan.

Of course they did, but being lucky in being born well does not mean they lack talent or ability. Thinking otherwise without personal knowledge is an insult.

Exactly. Reid Ryan certainly benefitted from having a famous dad. However, as I understand it, he was the driving force behind the Hooks success and has done what appears to be a great job for the Astros. Jim Crane won't suffer fools for long, so if his son doesn't work out, I bet that he won't hesitate to take nexcessary steps to solve the problem.

Far, far worse. Unlucky is a fact. “Wanted it more” sounds like HS football. Completely silly applied to professional baseball players in the World Series.

This whole wanted it more really pisses me off. These are PROFESSIONAL athletes. Their goal is to win a championship. Have you ever seen how much work it takes to perform at that level? If you ever do, you'll change your tune quickly. They all badly want it. Preiod.

Until 2017 I was convinced this franchise was established simply to break my heart every few years.
Hank Williams, you wrote my life.

I do not believe this. Yuli was elite.

Of course he was. To think that Jim Crane would give him $46,000,000 in sort of a rush technique (pledge the okay brother to get the one you wanted) is fucking laughable.

It has to be the SF Giants.  3 WS wins.

I lived out there for the first two. Bochy was the best manager in baseball for a long time and it wasn't even close. And Bryan Sabean was a masterful assembler of talent. But it was Bochy, because, if you remember those teams, they weren't world-beaters like the Astros were this year. They were a marginally good team that peaked at the right time. Bochy was masterful.

The Mets are hiring Carlos Beltran to be their manager.

Stroke of genius hire in my opinion.

I've found myself saying this a lot recently, both to myself and to others, I'm pretty sure I've even said it on this site a time or two. It definitely fits here.

Just because something doesn't work, doesn't mean it was the wrong decision. Just because something works, doesn't make it the right decision.

Bringing in Harris when he did, was the right decision. 9/10 times, Harris gets the job done, and the Astros probably win the game, this was the 1. Anybody who says that bringing in Harris in the 7th was a bad decision, simply has no baseball intelligence.

Absofuckinglutely correct on all scores. Will Harris has been nails all year. I feel awful for my LSU Tiger brother. He deserved a better fate, as Coach noted, getting beat on an awesome pitch (perfect call and perfect execution), that's just cruel and unusual punishment.

Wellsir, I for one am grateful to the ownership and organization  for the wonderful baseball and entertainment that they provided this year. I'm even grateful that we came within a game of taking it all. I am grateful because I remember those seasons of not so long ago. The 111 loss season and losing the last 15 in a row that year sticks out in my mind. While we came up short, we did god damn good, and even though we have some questions, Astros baseball looks in great hands, and for that too I am grateful.
