    houston nutt deserves coach of the year……just throwing it out there.

  2. Bo Says:

    As much as I like Eric Berry, Peria Jerry deserved Defensive Player of the Year.

  3. va reb Says:

    Agree!

  4. cr Says:

    How does freshman WR A J Green make 1st team and Julio Jones 2nd team and Julio gets Freshman of the Year?

  5. rpmjr Says:

    Lawon Scott honorable mention. Did not see that coming. He’s a good player and very solid all year long, but as a Sophomore he can get better.

    And no Mike Wallace or Shay Hodge honorable mention? I guess there’s a lot of talent at WR in the league. I wonder when Mike goes in the draft.

    Also, Peria is not unanimous? Are those ballets secret or can we get our hands on them? Who did not think that Peria was one of the 2 best DT in the country, more or less in the SEC this year?

  6. Jimmy Barbee Says:

    Jay, my good neighbor over the State line in Mobile, and with all respect, sir : The All-Sec players above from Ole Miss belong to coach Ed Orgeron. As you state: “houston nutt deserves coach of the year……just throwing it out there”. I agree with you, Coach Nutt did a great job, but he did it with the talent that Coach Orgeron left behind. In my view this Rebels team should be undefeated at this stage. Their losses were their self-inflicted.

  7. Sean Says:

    Jimmy Barbee: Houston Nutt did not turn the ball over 6 times against Vandy including a fumble going in at the 1 yd line.

  8. Christian Says:

    Jimmy, thats true. But Nutt had to overcome a team and a fan base who had gotten accustomed to losing. He did that. He changed a culture. That deserves something. The talent is no good if you don’t know how to use it.

  9. Jaxrebsteve Says:

    Their losses may have been self-inflicted as you say, but this was a program that not only had forgotten how to win, but expected to find a way to lose. Just think back to the MSU game and that’s all you need to remember. It takes a while to erase a losing attitude. Anyone who honestly evaluated this team before the year projected 6-6,at best. 8-4 and a January 2nd bowl is a dream after the last several years.
    The coaches did a fantastic job with a brand new system, 1st time starter at quarterback and a very young secondary. If recruiting goes well and we find people to step up for the seniors that graduate and Jevan continues to improve like Eli did each year, next year it is much more reasonable to shoot for double digit wins.

  10. farley662 Says:

    I agree with JB on this one. I hate Bama with a passion, but Saban deserves COY. He took a mediocre Bama team within one game of the National Championship. He’s the devil incarnate, but the man can coach!

  11. Josh Says:

    “This rebel team should be undefeated”?

    A. This is a ridiculous but fun game to play.

    B. The Alabama loss was not self-inflicted. The Rebs got completely dominated in the first half and returned the favor in the second half. Hard fought game but we just flat lost. Not to say we couldn’t have won but they deserved to win on that day.

    C. If you want to take away self-inflicted losses, do you still get to count the Florida win? It’s pretty tough to argue that we have a better team than Florida. Sure we beat them but that’s not the point of this game. The point is to come up with reasons to count games like Vandy, South Carolina and Wake as wins. Using that logic you have to say that Florida “SHOULD” have been a loss. Fortunately for us, on that field, on that day, the Rebs were the more formidable team.

    PA – Any thoughts on how the time off between games will affect the Rebs, especially the defense, that was playing with so much confidence and momentum at the end of the season? Who does the time off hurt more, an offense that relies on timing as much as TT or a Reb defense that was really peaking in the last few weeks of the season?

  12. m4rebs Says:

    I disagree with B on a technicallity Josh. I think we fell asleep for about 8 minutes in the 2nd Quarter in the Bama game and that’s why we lost that game. Alabama was up 7 to 3 at the end of the 1st, but then like I said, we stopped playing offense and defense for about an 8 minute stretch of game time and that’s where I felt like we lost that game.
    I completely agree with you on point C. If we play the “we don’t turn the ball over” card, you could easily say the same thing for 3 turnovers by the Gators and a blocked XP, but at the end of the day, I’d give back the UF win for the Vandy, USC, and Wake games. They look really bad now, and if we lose to the Gators by at most a TD, there’s no shame in that I don’t believe.
    I know you didn’t ask me, but I’ll give you my nickel on the layoff. I think it will hurt us on offense tremendously. In the ULM game, we found a rythum that not many teams find EVER in a season. Timing was there, momentum was there, the breaks were there, it was just rolling our way. In theory, if we could have played all 12 games in that 5 week period, we’d be playing in Miami mid-January instead of Dallas on January 2nd. I truly believe that we could have beaten ANY team that we played the last 5 weeks. I just think the layoff and #2, Nutt’s approach to Bowl Games, which from what I’ve seen is to reward his players by letting them enjoy the games, versuses scheming the crap out of it and making everyone focus on football every nano-second, we probably will take a step or two back. I hope not, I don’t want to go all that way and get hammered by Tech. We’ve faced this type of matchup, granted we gave up 652 yards of offense that night, but we went toe to toe with them too. We had a couple of Big XII officiating calls go against us and made a huge difference in the game back in 2003. It should be interesting no-doubt.

  13. Raleighrebel Says:

    M4, don’t get used to it, but I agree. The last five games we have played like we are capable of playing. The Florida win was great, but I too would give that up to have the games we ‘could’ have won. I appreciate your statistic on Nutt’s record in bowl games…did not realize his record there. I hope we go to the Cotton bowl to win, and win BIG. I definitely think we can, especially if Hardy is healthy and hoping to show out for the draft.

    Look forward to diagreeing with you on the ‘Predictions’ post.

    It’s been a great 24 hours not having to read a post from Colorado Reb. I guess he and Chuck are having a drink down the street.

  14. ColoradoReb Says:

    Thanks Raleigh and I guess since you mispelled disagreeing we can see you don’t know what your talking about as you stated about me last night.

  15. m4rebs Says:

    Thanks Raleigh. One other quick thing of note. If you look at the last 5 games, Greg Hardy was at full speed and played on MOST 3rd Downs for us. I think if we pack the right shoes, or if he’s not at the Zoo for most of the season, we probably don’t have to give back the UF game. He didn’t play any at Wake, didn’t play against Vandy, and shouldn’t have been out there for USC and Alabama. Anyway, if if’s and but’s were candy and nuts we’d all have a Merry Christmas, right?
    Like I’ve said before, if we didn’t have differing opinions, we wouldn’t get the measily 20 posts per Heading that we get on here now. I guess if we dog-cussed each other, we’d get in the hundreds. Night to all!

  16. ColoradoReb Says:

    I think the biggest thing that has help OM is the fact that they played a down Ark. team, a down Auburn team, a down LSU team, a down MSU team, and Fla. was just pure luck. I think there is alot of talent on this team but if everyone was at their best I don’t think Nutt would be in the Cotton Bowl. I love OM, probably more than you Raleigh, but don’t get use to a big bowl every year, especially with Nick Saban at Alabama. I don’t know how he does it, but he is definately a great coach. Therefore, I do think he deserves COY. Many happy returns on the spelling contest. That M is right next to that N just as the S is next to the A my friend. Thanks for the forum PA and Merry Christmas to all.

  17. Raleighrebel Says:

    ‘You’re’, not Your, Colorado. YOUR turn.

  18. maroondog Says:

    Hey C-Reb, you do know that more than one team from the SEC can go to a bowl game every year. I mean, Saban beat Ole Miss this year and they are still going bowling. Why shouldn’t it be a big bowl?

  19. ColoradoReb Says:

    I mean recruiting is going to get even more difficult. OM and State I suspect will go “bowling” about as much as we always have. We have only been to the Cotton Bowl three times in 73 years. I’m just saying recruiting is very difficult in Ms. I think Ed was great at it, he just couldn’t run the whole show. Thats all.

  20. ColoradoReb Says:

    Coaching is definately a winning game and certainly helps recruiting with the facilities OM has. Thanks for the correction Raleigh, I stand corrected.

  21. ColoradoReb Says:

    My big prediction for the night!@#$#^%&*(& State has found a new head coach and it will surprise and amaze. Check back tomorrow and I’ll tell you who……..

  22. ColoradoReb Says:

    Maybe!

  23. maroondog Says:

    (holding breath)

  24. farley662 Says:

    What happened to no name coordinator?

  25. ColoradoReb Says:

    LOL maroondawg!

  26. ColoradoReb Says:

    Farley I didn’t say it was a big name. I just think you’ll be surprised and amazed.

  27. ColoradoReb Says:

    This search has really gone all over the board. I hope State gets Saban or whoever yall want. I just like watching you grown men get so torn up over some predictions. I don’t think whoevers going to coach knows they are going to be at State yet. I’ll just tell you my prediction and you can take it or leave it. Croom had alot of nice things to say about State. I’m sure that will help. I bet with his demeanor it didn’t cause any problems among players or recruits.

  28. BirdZ! Says:

    So what are you gonna do, colorado reb? As soon as the announcement is made, are you gonna come on here and say “I already knew that.”

    your and idiot.

  29. ColoradoReb Says:

    It’s “you’re a idiot”. Raleigh and I are having a spell off.

  30. Raleighrebel Says:

    Actually, it’s ‘You’re AN idiot”. I’m up 3-1 by the way. Also, you should hear all of the ‘nice’ things Croom had to say in his radio interview. Take a look at Brad Locke’s blog. Feel free to stay over there.

  31. ColoradoReb Says:

    I guess I am. I predicted Nutt was coming to OM about a week before (ask M4Reb). I told PA that Auburn was on the horn to OM for Nutt (he didn’t believe me either) in fact he wrote a story saying no Nutt in Auburn’s play book, but the next day he retracted that. Turner Gill is Auburn’s next coach, I said that yesterday (PA thinks its their 3rd or 4th choice). State has been hard to predict, I will say. There have been so many coaches turning them down.

  32. ColoradoReb Says:

    “an” I believe is in the plural sense. Use your MS word to check.

  33. ColoradoReb Says:

    I had already told you of the problems at State yesterday. I was being deliberate in saying “nice things”.

  34. maroondog Says:

    an comes before a vowel – a before a consonant

  35. ColoradoReb Says:

    Good night boys! I’m going back to Brad’s Blog cause Raleigh is just too smart for me.

  36. ColoradoReb Says:

    You are correct Maroondog. I have been wrong now twice in my life.

  37. ColoradoReb Says:

    OK its more than twice my wife says, but she is wrong, of course.

  38. toddy22 Says:

    My one concern would be the preparation puts into the game. If he lets the Rebels “enjoy” their bowl game, we are in for a let down. I do not see Nutt or more importantly Nix and Austin letting that happen. We, as the SEC, has a lot of pride riding on this game, and i hope we work twice as hard to get to the level of TT (it’s like MSU^2 in Texas, we cannot let ourselves lose to that!)

  39. Josh Says:

    C-reb, I’ll go ahead and point out your third lifetime mistake. DefinItely has an I not an A.

    And I’m gonna agree with PA. Gill is down on Auburn’s list. He may end up being the one who gets the job, but he’s definitely not their no. 1 candidate. Forget what all the papers are saying, they have been in touch with Muschamp. Keep in mind he hasn’t signed this “coach in waiting” contract yet. Bobby Johnson and Gill are probably 2 and 3 right now. For obvious reasons, Gill could get the job over the other 2.

    ADVENT

    REMEMBER THE REASON
    FOR THE SEASON

    Matthew 1:23. Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
    and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his
    name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, GOD with us.

  41. doubletripper Says:

    greg hardy honorable mention? what a croc. given a choice between him and anyother defensive end in the country, i would pick him every time. hodge and wallace deserve more recoginition also. they all will be playing on sunday soon.

  42. djrebel Says:

    Colorado Reb, I don’t recall saying Nutt was never in Auburn’s “play book.” Refresh me please. All this stuff runs together.

    I was told a long time ago that Auburn would make a run at Nutt if Tuberville was fired or resigned. (His mom says fired, by the way.)

    When the first two names Auburn floated were Leach and Petrino, I relaxed a bit thinking Auburn was looking for a different style of coach.

    I think the Nutt going to Auburn threat is over for this year.

    I think there’s some merit to your theory of Ole Miss beating down teams the second half of the season. The best seasons at State and Ole Miss do in fact seem to occur when the league is transitioning.

    I don’t think that’s all there is to it right now. This team has received far better coaching than it’s been accustomed to the last three years. It has gotten better as the year has gone on. And it really has dominated these sub-standard opponents down the stretch.

    The Arkansas game obviously didn’t have a dominant ending. That was due in large part to the Rebels’ inability to finish drives with touchdowns.

    — PA

  43. ColoradoReb Says:

    I’ll agree with you on that PA. I think when you dominate like we did in those last three games you definately have some talent. I just remember you saying Auburn was looking for a spread man and Nutt was not really on their radar. I think Nutt is a great coach for OM and I think he’ll win games every year that he is not really supposed to. He does a good job of coaching up players and I think his staff is the best in the SEC right now. Looks as if I was wrong on State. I’ve kinda been cut out of that loop for a couple days now. Anyway, I think Nutt will be at least an 8 win a year coach and for me thats great. We must however give credit to O for the recruits he brought in. He just couldn’t coach them. I’ll take a W anyway we can get it and I hope they all stay down for a couple of years.

  44. ColoradoReb Says:

    I think winning the Ark game, even though not a blowout, is when these players started to understand what they could really do if they just finished the game. I do think the threat of Nutt leaving is over for now, but there is always next year.
    Does this clear everything up with us? I’m not against you I just knew for a fact Nutt had some messages left for him from Auburn.

  45. ColoradoReb Says:

    I knew from some kin folks that Wesley was leaving and he has said some others are to come. All the rest of this is just my predictions which are like buttholes, everybody has one. I knew Nutt was in Oxford last year because I was there in the same house with him. I knew Croom would be bitter over his job and I figured he would eventually pop off about it. Again through some people I know they said Croom and some of his staff were using the race card as why they were out. They called some recruits and told them not to go to State. Which in my opinion calls into question the mans so called mesiah like qualities. Turner Gill has been open with his players, one of which I know, and he told them about the Auburn interview on Sat or Sun.

  46. djrebel Says:

    Colorado Reb, I try to print things with the appropriate gray edges, and I didn’t think I was that specific with Nutt-Auburn in the early days. No big deal. I don’t print everything I hear. If a coach tells me he has not had contact, I’ll let him make his statement. I figure most people have an idea how these things work and can sort out their own feelings. From what I gather, Auburn’s interest in Nutt was significant. I had been told early on that if Tuberville was let go that would be the case. When the first two names to surface were Leach and Petrino I calculated, incorrectly, that they were looking for a certain offensive style, and that style wasn’t Nutt.

    — PA

  47. bigdraws Says:

    If Crxxm is out playing the race card he has done more damage to African Americans that are persuing head coaching jobs than good. After hearing his comments the other day it just points out how incapable he was of being a head coach. If more do leave I think it was the best for msu to cut it’s losses before things got worse. The university has proven that it will give a coach plenty of time to get things going. Take out that one year of his and the most wins he had is 4. That don’t get it done fat boy. Another annoying thing about Crxxm is he had a limp handshake. I just never could get past that.

  48. ColoradoReb Says:

    Bigdraws I’ve laughed til my sides hurt. You are so right in what you said. You sound like my Papaw. Just tell-r-like-it is. I would have to agree that a hand with a limp handshake gives me the hebeegeebee’s. PA I think we agree on most points and I sure didn’t mean to insinuate(hope I spelled that right before Raleigh sees it) you didn’t know whats going on. I think you say on top of things, as I have said in the past, better than any other in the state. Now what about those press passes. You know we could drum up some posts if you were to get me some. I’ll even write a column in the print addition. I need four, these boys want to go to the bowl game.

  49. ColoradoReb Says:

    I gettin on the field even if I have to streak accross. This is the last game at the old stadium. Wouldn’t that go down in history? I will however take some tickets if thats the best you can do, but I wont tell you who’s gonna win for just regular tickets. (LOL)
