LAMM AT LARGE: Gators are a badly coached team

I've never claimed to be a coach or as smart as the men who coach for a living. But I've been around long enough to know good and bad coaching when I see it. The Gators have been a badly coached team this season, losing two games when I thought they had superior talent. There was the rash of penalties that allowed Kentucky to beat Florida. Penalties are usually about […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Hard to be objective about Jaguars win in London

I've always regarded myself as an old-fashion journalist. I was taught if you were a reporter, you reported the facts. If you were a commentator, you gave your unfiltered opinion, not concerned with whose feelings you hurt or feathers you ruffled. I haven't always been able to live up to those standards. I think back to FSU and Florida winning national football championship; to the news Jacksonville was getting an […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Video game offense is here to stay in college football

Before you round up a mob and gather the tar and feathers to run your school's defensive coordinator out of town, take a look around. No one plays defense anymore. Ok, the Georgia Bulldogs are an anomaly, maybe Iowa, too, but what other major schools can stop anybody? I looked at the top 50 games from last weekend and the numbers were mind-boggling. Three schools scored 48 or more points, […]

NFL infamy: Jaguars losing skid reaches 20

By Hays Carlyon   You are experiencing the lowest moment in NFL history, Jaguars. Congratulations. The Jaguars endured their 20th-consecutive loss in a lopsided 37-19 defeat to Tennessee on Sunday at TIAA Bank Field. Straight. Losses. This doesn’t happen to established franchises. Tampa Bay has the NFL record of 26, but that was as an expansion team. That streak by the Bucs ended in 1977, the same year “Star Wars” […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Meyer who we thought he was

Most of us won't admit it, but other people's missteps often make us feel good about ourselves. That's especially true if those who stumble are any kind of celebrity. Think Urban Meyer. When we find out these privileged people have feet of clay, it is often seen as a message they're not any different, any better, than you and me. What Meyer did was stupid. Leaders are expected to live […]

Khan released the following statement Tuesday morning. “I have addressed this matter […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Great college coaches beat who they’re supposed to

When you look back at the careers of great college football coaches -- such as FSU's Bobby Bowden and Florida's Steve Spurrier -- one thing they have in common is they rarely, if ever, lost to teams they were expected to beat. Now look at the current Gators coach, Dan Mullen, who has rebuilt Florida into a program aspiring to return to elite status. He keeps coming close and then […]

HAYS BLOG: Trevor Lawrence is winless but looks like a budding superstar

By Hays Carlyon CINCINNATI – Trevor Lawrence is winless in four starts. I understand that. But I see a budding superstar. Lawrence was superb considering the circumstances in Thursday night’s 24-21 loss to the Bengals. Cincinnati (3-1) connected on an Evan McPherson 35-yard field goal as time expired. The Jaguars never trailed until the final play. Jaguars coach Urban Meyer was emotional in the postgame press conference, pounding the podium […]
