LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars are better than Cowboys

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars are better than Cowboys

By: David Lamm If the Jaguars’ opponent wasn’t wearing Cowboys uniforms this Sunday, their task wouldn’t look nearly as difficult. I’m talking about the same coaches and players, just not wearing Dallas uniforms. The Cowboys are America’s Team, make no mistake about. When they play nearly everyone pays attention. The television ratings bear it out.…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Georgia Bulldogs need to watch out

LAMM AT LARGE: Georgia Bulldogs need to watch out

By: David Lamm Dare I say it, even as a whisper? Could the Georgia-Florida game, coming up in 17 days, be competitive? I can’t believe what I’m thinking, but, yes, yes it could be. Everything is coming up roses in Gator Nation. No one is singing the praises of their quarterback, Feleipe Franks, but they…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Statistics lie when telling story of Chiefs

By: David Lamm I never have put much stock in football team statistics, particularly in the NFL. I put less stock today than never. Stats mean little if you don’t know the circumstances.

Offensive linemen can use their hands to do everything but…Continue Reading »

By: David Lamm My love of baseball is obviously the reason I enjoy the Major League Baseball playoffs so much. But it goes beyond that. It goes to the very nature of the game. Winning six out of 10 games makes you an outstanding team. A bad team with one stud on the mound can…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Are Gators winning or is opposition losing?

LAMM AT LARGE: Are Gators winning or is opposition losing?

By: David Lamm Some college football thoughts: I’ve always said the most difficult part about my job was in analyzing a game and trying to decide if the game was won or lost. Take for example Florida’s 47-21 victory over Tennessee. Did the Gators win because they were so impressive or did the Volunteers lose…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Tiger Woods roaring again

LAMM AT LARGE: Tiger Woods roaring again

By: David Lamm I’m still trying to rap my head around what Tiger Woods has done – and now what he’ll likely do in the near future. Tiger’s career was considered as dead as his social life was thought to be after news of his bed-hopping broke several years ago. But after five years in…Continue Reading »

It’s a lot Florida weather, sunny and beautiful one moment and pouring rain the next. • A week after one of its most important and impressive victories in franchise history, the Jaguars lay an egg the next week, losing at home to the Titans, 9-6.
