Here’s my ballot. I’ve made a ton of adjustments based on Week 1′s resume. Be advised this will fluctuate a lot at the beginning of the season. In fact, I hate having a poll before Week 6, but I need to submit a ballot so here it is. I’ll explain more after the poll: ScalpEm.com […]

1. 22 of 27 passing combined for the QB’s. 7 of 8 scores in the red zone. No TD’s allowed by the defense for the first time in 15 games. A goal line stand by the defense, and the third string defense at that. Only four penalties none of which included the ever popular holding […]

The title is misleading, I realize. Normally, what would follow is a bunch of YouTube videos about stupid fans of our opponent this week, Samford. However, I’ve come up with nothing.

There’s a long list of players that had troubles and were either forgiven quickly or kicked of the team for multiple offenses. […]

Full disclosure: I’m a reformed tailgate addict. I used to tailgate with a bunch of friends, have a 20×10 tent with screens, friends that had tables, chairs and grills (oh my!). Basically, it used to be an all day affair for me. Now, not so much. I tend to enjoy the home A/C for as […]

In the latest edition of the Jimbotron Fan Confidence Meter I’ve adjusted the look a tiny bit. Basically, I slid the results over to indicate which month the graph is posted, instead of the trailing month’s data. It’s the same data, but now the graph shows Jimbo’s head on May instead of April. The meter […]
