Last week, ESPN and College GameDay invaded the Vanderbilt campus generating eons of hype about Vanderbilt’s undefeated football team. Fans and citizens were bombarded with media coverage of the Vanderbilt vs. Auburn matchup that resulted in a 14-13 victory for the Commodores, now boasting a 5-0 record, 3-0 against SEC teams.
Polian didn’t name names, but in the wake of Johnson’s release, a reader at the Colts’ blog 18to88.com broke down a series of plays on which Johnson played in the first half of the victory over coolest guy in nashville Sunday and did a detailed analysis concluding that Johnson was ineffective at best and very, very bad at worst. And, as 18to88.com pointed out by linking to my next-day piece on Examiner.com Wednesday, I was among those who not only assumed incorrectly that perhaps Johnson’s release had something to do with character, and I was also among those who incorrectly assumed he had been playing well.
People also get spooked by the fangs and the venom. This, too, is understandable as these particular features are mostly what make cobras “deadly” in the first place.
12. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-3) (Previous rank: 8): So much for their stellar defense: they were carved by the Saints like a Thanksgiving turkey. They aren’t good enough on offense to keep up when an opponent scores 41 points. If they don’t get their defense going, they won’t be going anywhere.
In Nashville weather history, two big historical events for June 4th. In 1985, softball-sized hail is reported in Davidson County and in 1998, lightning strikes the Saint Patrick Church. A fire ensues that heavily damages the steeple and roof. Looked for some photos of the ’98 fire, but wasn’t able to find any. Many of you would know the St. Patrick church in downtown Nashville.
Do be supportive of his mad football spectator skills. This will be helpful later when you need a partner for the home show. Or, with taking out the trash.
23. Arizona Cardinals (3-5) (Previous rank: 19): This is turning into a typical Arizona Cardinal’s season. They simply aren’t getting enough yards on offense: their passing game is mediocre and their running game is, well, even worse than Green Bay’s.
But the Oilers captured Houston unlike any other team. The rough and tumble image was a perfect fit for a city whose culture was becoming more well rounded.
I don’t want to come across as a soothsayer, however, the chances of a major earthquake is not terribly remote. In 2003 the United States Government’s US Geological Survey (Department of the Interior), following a fifteen year study of the New Madrid fault, predicted that there was a 25% chance of an 6.0 earthquake or better at any time until 2040, and a 7-10% chance of a New Madrid earthquake during the next 50 years with a 7.5-8.0 magnitude . (See- http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=215) Remember that a documented earthquake of an estimated 8.0 scale occurred right under Memphis two hundred years ago in the year 1811, and The Mississippi River ran backwards for three days.
Hendricks had been outstanding for the Smokies in 2013. He started 21 games and compiled a 10-3 record with an impressive 1.85 ERA over 126.1 innings pitched.
