Your comments are sick. Look in the mirror and you will see a real idiot. I often wonder Where people like you come from?

I can see why KNS loves to remove your posts. I have suggested that they remove this post as well. Your opinion is your opinion, that's OK. However calling CBJ an idioot only reveals who the true idiot is. Thought when this site went to a pay site, people such as you would be eliminated. Guess I was wrong. One things for sure the real idiot has been revealed by your post. Just Sayin... All Vol..All the
Time

WE need a QB who can keep the offense on the field and keep the margin of defeat smaller when we play SEC teams. If one of the freshmen can do it better than Worley-play him. If the freshman aren't any better than Peterson, leave them on the bench. If either freshmen can learn something from playing against South Alabama, play him/them.

With Peterman out indefinitely with the injured hand, I guess it's time to find out what Ferguson, the presumptive favorite, can do. Even if Worley plays decently, and I am OK with him as the starter for now, one big hit or other mishap will require somebody else to step up. In any case, I guess we all found out Saturday that there are worse things than "no pizzazz" in the offense.
