Imagine what he could do on the plains with the better facilities, program history and recruiting territory.

Not sure it was for no reason. Remember what Howard did to her at the firm. And with complete elitism and smugness. Actions have consequences and you have to be careful who you mess with.

Breaking Bad was an almost perfect ending.  I still can’t hear Baby Blue without getting a little misty for what we lost. 

Lost in that, though, is all of Walt’s exposed ugliness before that final semi-redemption. 

In a lot of ways the end runs are very similar in arc. 

If you remember back to Bad, Walt had gradually morphed from a guy who wrestled with his conscience into a despicable human being with no thought other than his own needs and wants.

He left Jane to die and didn’t regret it.
He killed Mike.
He wanted Jesse dead.
He killed Gus. 
He was complicit in killing Hank and Gomez.

Every single person who tried to help him in his quest was destroyed by their association with him. 

There was a time we all related to and sympathized with Walter.  I think even the show’s creators were surprised that we stuck with him even as his acts of destruction grew more vile and self centered.

Saul has gone the same way.  From a gregarious, fun character to a spiteful, petty criminal with little to no moral compass. 

I don’t know if Saul can stick the landing like Walter did, but I hope there’s some final small redemption for a guy who fought stacked odds from the day he was born. 

I really hate the end of Kim’s thread (if that was it).  It’s kind of funny.  She made him want to be a better man than he was, but she wasn’t interested in that.  She’s the one who pushed him into the Hoaward scam - for no real reason.  And when it blew up? She left him adrift.  I’m beginning to wonder if she wasn’t the villain all along.

Whatever the purpose it ruined the character.  I can’t bleach that out of my mind.

Yep….

Back many years ago?

Kentucky gave Adolph Rupp a car.  They gave Bahr Brunt a watch.  Brunt was pissed.  He left.

I think about that often.  What if they’d given him a car too.  The history of college football might be vastly different. 

What might things look like if Stoops leaves UK where he has disadvantages and lands at a place like AU where all the pieces are just waiting for some non-dumbass to put them together?

He’s absolutely who I would pick if the current guy doesn’t work out. Of course the normal pie in the sky coaches will be shouted by everyone. Sure I’d love brother bob too. But he’s happy not coaching. That ship sailed once word leaked out that Rane was having serious chats with him a few years before Gus was canned.

I do find brother mark an extremely underrated coach. He builds both lines well. Imagine what he could do on the plains with the better facilities, program history and recruiting territory.

Drove up to The Gump last night to see comedian, Brian Regan, at Montgomery Performing Arts Center.  Great place to see a show.  I've been to several events there, including Joe Bonamassa, Ted Nugent and Jeff Foxworthy.  Not a ton of great stuff coming the rest of the year, but if you like stand up comedy, Nate Bargatze will be there in December.  Love Bargatze, so I'm gonna' try and get to that one.
