    While you bullshitting, I loved that game... We painted the teams to match our favorites then used the number stickers for the jerseys... Brings back memories.. .

    I hope he can learn. but there is no way to rationalize that kind of thinking. If he's a points on the board despite circumstances coach, were gonna lose a lot of football games. have to be able to think ahead in today's game.

    We have a difference of opinion here. I don't think Barrett is clever enough to fall into being called a troll.

    I've followed his 'work' for years and I'm left with the impression his allegiance to his alma mater is so strong that it skews his outlooks on teams around the SEC. Don't get me wrong. I don't mind a reporter being loyal to his school as long as it doesn't affect his opinion. The late Stuart Scott was one of the best in this arena. There are a select few that I'd call his peers.

    It's one extreme or another. On one hand you have your Sallee's of the world, and on the other hand you've got guys who purposefully represent themselves as overly non-biased.

    To be frank, he fits with CBS and would at a site like Yahoo as well.

    No i never said that. I meant in that instance only. Situationally dictates decisions.

    Fair enough. I agree his allegiance to Georgia definitely shines through and that may be why I consider him a troll. I also may be jaded from his time with Bleacher Report where it was his job to be provocative and troll other SEC teams, because that's basically the agenda of BR.

    He did grow up in the Atlanta area but he's an Auburn grad. He spent the last two years of his undergrad in their media relations department.

    I've a bit of an advantage here...had some dealings with him when he was down there and I was working the college football scene(s) at the time.

    He is not a negatiger. He is the antitiger as long as anybody but Elmer Fudd is the head coach.
