This is a horrible analogy. First, if one winery has had great wines for the last 5 years, they have the best climate, the best soil, the best grapes, they keep all their workers and the replacement was mentored by the person leaving, AND the replacement has a great track record prior, AND the replacement put out a tiny batch of wine which actually "scored" more points against a vineyard than anyone else had that season...

You can for sure guess that that they will be better than 3/4 of the incumbent others; many of which have never had a very good wine, and who don't have the same resources at their disposal right now.

It doesn't matter how many points it has if you don't care for Zinfindels and that was the 6th bottle. You know a little about the wine but not that particular bottle. So based on lack of knowledge (you have seen previous first time coaches fail) about that wine....you don't rank it in your top 5. I know a lot about wines.

Good for you. You don't know anything about analogies.

Also, it would have been rather rude to rank an unproven coach above any of our experienced coaches. Just sayin’

Yeah, because it's so uncouth to be a rude "journalist."

Just because a few journalists twist your panties in the right spot doesn't mean all should. Most don't.

But I can deal with realities and he is Coach #11 because he is as unknown as in his ability to perform as a head coach as a wine you have never tasted.

Sorry but you can't and your analogy is nonsense. He coached in the Cotton Bowl with Norvell and his defensive coordinator gone, with Magnifico and Dill not playing, and he didn't make any glaring mistakes; certainly nothing distinguishable from Norvell.

Also, I am not a weatherman, but I know when it's sunny and when it's rainy. I guess you don't and your analogy is still useless.

Just curious, but which coach or coaches should he move in front of? He has one loss in a bowl game as a head coach. His career record is 0-1. Which coach should he move ahead of based on that resume?

RE: CBS AAC Preseason Rankings
It's really stupid if you ask me ... This guy did a hell of a job coaching in the Cotton Bowl. He's got most of a championship team coming back. How bad do they think he's going to look coaching this season. I predict he's coach of the year ... It's Ken Nomochucky's year to suck, and everyone knows the AAC media gives it to the guy who overachieves. Wait ... they'll say he had a great team back so ... CBS is just trying to start some sheet ??? Now that I believe !!!

RE: CBS AAC Preseason Rankings
At least they’re consistent. Even though they expected UCF to make another NY6 run with McKenzie Milton, Josh Heupel got the 11 spot as a first year head coach in 2018. He had served as offensive coordinator for Oklahoma, Utah State and Missouri. It just shows that their useless rankings are based on head coaching results and not potential/expectations. Useless rankings from other sources likely have their own set of criteria.

Sonny Dykes bombed at Cal and Montgomery was 2-10. Any idiot could have figured out that Heupel at UCF was going to be much better than Tulsa, just like any idiot can figure out that we are going to be better than Tulane, Temple, Tulsa and ECU and are probably going to be better than everyone except possibly Cincinnati and UCF.

I suppose you are entitled to not know from one sip of wine that the rest of the bottle might be good.

I don’t think we’re all looking at it the same. I took it that the rankings are strictly about the coach and they have no head coaching track record with which to rank him. Just like Heupel in 2018. I imagine if this same team of experts ranked the actual teams, we’d be at or near the top. They even stated that they expect we’ll be a top 25 team in 2020. They also stated that they expect with Silverfield we will remain a prominent force in the AAC.

In my anology....I had not opened the bottle yet. In my anology your taste would be the equivalent of seeing 1) how your new assistant coaches you hired perform in the spring game and 2) how the overall team and individual players appear to perform in the spring game especially as it relates to your new coaching hires 3) reporters stories and first hand observations on how practices are going 4) evaulation of new recruits in Silverfields first recruiting class.

We played in something called the Cotton Bowl. Near Dallas.

Also, I am not a weatherman, but I know when it's sunny and when it's rainy. I guess you don't and your analogy is still useless.
You are certainly entitled to your opinion. There is no argument from me on freedom of speech.

I suppose you are entitled to not know from one sip of wine that the rest of the bottle might be good.

In my anology....I had not opened the bottle yet. In my anology your taste would be the equivalent of seeing 1) how your new assistant coaches you hired perform in the spring game and 2) how the overall team and individual players appear to perform in the spring game especially as it relates to your new coaching hires 3) reporters stories and first hand observations on how practices are going 4) evaulation of new recruits in Silverfields first recruiting class.

We played in something called the Cotton Bowl. Near Dallas.

That was the swirl and the sniff, before the sip.

Moving on to the scoundrels at Athlon....

They give the Silverfield hire a B-


20. Ryan Silverfield, Memphis
Previous Job: Offensive Line Coach, Memphis

Memphis hit a home run with its last two hires (Justin Fuente and Mike Norvell), so the program opted for continuity by promoting Silverfield to the top spot in December. Silverfield joined Norvell’s staff in 2016 and tutored the offensive line over the last four years. The Tigers were solid up front under Silverfield’s watch, with one player earning all-conference honors in each of the last three seasons. The Jacksonville, Florida, native also has stints on his resume as a graduate assistant at UCF (2006-07), offensive consultant at Toledo (2014), analyst at Arizona State (2015), and in the NFL with the Vikings (2008-13) and Lions (2015). Even though Memphis lost the Cotton Bowl to Penn State, Silverfield had a good showing in his first game on the sidelines and built a quality staff for 2020. There’s a lot of unknown here, but the Tigers should be fine in the short term as Silverfield gets more comfortable as head coach.
Final Grade: B-

What a beautiful weekend. It was so nice; I spent most of it outdoors. So now I'm back and here is the deal with your posts in this thread.

Quote:I know a lot about wines.

I spent 10 years in the restaurant business; 7 as an owner/operator, and 3 years running them for others. Each year our wine list had at least 60 wines on it, with wines being rotated in and out. So through tasting to build our wine lists; being mentored, guided and helped by dozens of people in the business that knew a lot about wines, and enjoying wine and dining out, I have probably tried 3,000+ wines. I would never say that I know a lot about wines. As a matter of fact, nobody I have been around that knows a lot about wine would ever say something like that.

I never heard Mike Norvell, Justin Fuente, Cal or Penny say that they know a lot about coaching. I did hear Tubby and Pastner say that they did. If I had a dollar for every "I know a lot about wine" guys that raved about $8 bottles of wine that I told them were $50, I would be rich. So my advice to you would be to never say that to anyone again. It will always reflect poorly on you by people that know a lot about wine, and people that don't know a lot. It is incredibly pretentious and you will always come off as a blowhard.

Quote:That was the swirl and the sniff, before the sip.

Let's say that you had already had...

2011 Larry Porter Pinot Noir
2012 Larry Porter Pinot Noir
2013 A swirl and a sniff of Larry Porter Pinot Noir

2017 Phillip Montgomery Cabernet Sauvignon (2-10)
2018 Phillip Montgomery Cabernet Sauvignon (3-9)
2019 Phillip Montgomery Cabernet Sauvignon (4-8)
2020 A swirl and a sniff of Philip Montgomery Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Tubby Smith Chardonnay
2018 Tubby Smith Chardonnay
2019 A swirl and a sniff of Tubby Smith Chardonnay

2019 Mike Houston Pinot Grigio
2020 A swirl and a sniff of Mike Houston Pinot Grigio

What you are saying is that you are clueless about wine and clueless about coaching, and it's a dumb analogy, especially since he has already coached a game, has a dynamite coaching staff in place, has a lot coming back, and kept all our recruits.
