|Saban and Miles at the top|
Personally, Richt has done more with a little less than Les over the last two years. To get over the hump in the SEC East, Richt had to make some tough decisions concerning his staff---or face the chopping block himself---and he made the right moves. Like his Georgia counterpart, Les has had a few weak links on staff that received Miles' pledge of loyalty to the detriment of the team. Les bowed up this year and made a bold move offensively with the Cam Cameron hire. If Cameron works out and the rest of Miles staff perform as they have in their LSU tenure, then---I would rank Miles ahead of Richt.
But not now.
In addition, Ed Hardy and Tim the Rebel fan were NOT happy with Hugh Freeze tagged two notches below Dan Mullen. "I" don't have a problem with Mullen ahead of Freeze... I do wonder about Sumlin and Franklin's spots below Mullen. Glenn goes "body of work;" I go "Full A.D.D.", aka, what-have-they-done-for-their-paychecks-recently!
We also delved deeper into the Saints and Cowboys as they, along with all other NFL teams, completed the most important dress rehearsal prior to the regular season. Poor tackling by the Saints back 8 + Texans receivers with more alone time than a hipster poet = bad news for the Saints defense.

New Orleans pass-catchers continue to impress, particularly the younguns' like Kenny Stills, Nick Toon and Andy Tanner. Stills and Toon are locks for the final 53... Tanner has a skill set that is NFL Roster worthy. We wonder if he isn't crunched by the numbers and lost to another team due to his less than stellar special teams ability compared to Courtney Roby and Preston Parker's contributions. Some team will employ Tanner this year---if the roster expanded to 54 players? Tanner is in.
And another big day for Louisiana Tech's Luke McCown. Along

Fans of the Blue Stars had to like seeing their team ground and pound the Bengals. The Cowboys running attack will be the operation that separates the wheat from the chaff in the NFC East.

Every now and then, on The Tim Fletcher Show, we have earth-rocking news that floats our way---and it has nothing to do with sports. Today was one of those days.
Billy, our long-time caller, who allowed us all to share in the news of his pursuit of wedded bliss in the Philippines, dropped another bombshell on us:
- He is going to be a Daddy... of a little Billy, Jr.
|Billy, the pastry chef!|
That, my friends, is getting it done! Billy and Mrs. Billy have a bun in the oven! Congrats to Billy and we can't wait to take our first call from Junior three years from now when Father and Son disagree on a Les Miles 4th down decision.
