Fred Zamberletti: They had some big card games in that locker room.

The 1998 season was filled with signature, prime-time wins, including a 37-24 takedown of the Packers on Monday Night Football in which Cunningham threw for a career-best 442 yards and four touchdowns (Moss had five catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns) and a Thanksgiving Day Fc Barcelona Cheap Jerseys win over the Cowboys that featured a combined 10 catches for 298 yards and four touchdowns between Moss and Carter.

Green, though, wanted to make sure his team stayed grounded. In a search for material, he turned an embarrassing public gaffe into one of the best mid-week speeches in coaching history.

I was curious who Huerter would be compared to on Draft night—J.J. Redick? Doug McDermott? He looks a little bit like Steve Blake in the Terps uniform. Depends which link you click on … there’s a few dunks out there, a lot of three-pointers and one fascinating video breakdown of how his shot compares to Klay Thompson. But I had trouble getting a feel for this guy on YouTube. From what I’m reading, a lot of NBA teams are hoping he falls to them. Maybe GMs have been using their burner accounts to bury Huerter highlights.

The Crimson Tide capped off a dominant season on defense with a 21–0 shutout of LSU, which crossed midfield on offense exactly once all night and gained just 92 total yards against a defense brimming with NFL draft picks. C.J. Mosley picked off Tigers quarterback Jordan Jefferson in the third quarter, and Dont’a Hightower put the result out of question with a late forced fumble. Even next to Alabama’s other great defenses of the past decade, this unit was special.

Oregon terrorized opposing defenses on the ground throughout the 2010 season, racking up 286.2 rushing yards per game to finish fourth in the nation behind two option offenses (Georgia Tech and Air Force) and Colin Kaepernick–led Nevada. But against Auburn in the national title game, the Ducks could muster only 75 yards on 32 carries in a 22–19 loss, thanks in large part to the disruptive presence of Fairley in the middle of the Tigers’ line. Fairley finished with three tackles for loss, a sack, a forced fumble and a pressure tof QB Darron Thomas that led to a key Auburn Kids Cheap Jerseys interception in the red zone.
