Curious: If the NBA had put a game on national television. And if one team led another 56-0...Oh wait, that is absurd....

Rick Bonnell

Did anyone think Auburn would blow this game?

Rick Bonnell

Much excitement about Auburn having to play at Kansas State. Not saying K-State couldn't win.. But this reflects huge difference in talent.

Rick Bonnell

Death, taxes and SEC football.

Rick Bonnell

So I guess ESPN can't promote "This is sloppy football we didn't expect, but have you sampled that blowout tonight in the NFL?"

Rick Bonnell

Somewhere from the grave John McKay is "favoring" the Bucs' execution.

Rick Bonnell

Auburn needs to run that play where the other team tries a long field goal and they run it back for a touchdown.

Rick Bonnell

The Bucs hiring Greg Schiano was not unlike Bobcats hiring Mike Dunlap. However, that doesn't mean that was Bucs' only flaw.

Rick Bonnell

So will Matt Ryan now have a teammate toss a cinder in his eye at every kickoff? #dontmesswithastreak

Rick Bonnell

Auburn punter deserves a serious atta boy for that play.

Rick Bonnell

I love out of-of-place delights: The cioppino at Hooked in Manchester, NH, is best I've ever had.

Rick Bonnell

Just saw Gameday is in Tallahassee Saturday. Thinking there won't be a pact not to talk about Jameis Winston until the show is half over.

Gerald Henderson

the weather change brings with it so many other changes! this is a fun time of year!

Gerald Henderson

man keep your hands to yourself! it would solve a lot of problems these days!

Rick Bonnell

Kudos to @MikeSolarte on his Panthers package tonight. Smart and detailed.

Cody Zeller

Rick Bonnell

BTW, SI ranks coulda-been-a-Hornet Gordon Hayward No. 57.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Hornets ranked in SI's top 100 NBA players: Kemba 94, Lance 73, Big Al 26. si.com/nba/2014/top-1…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets forward Jeff Taylor back in Charlotte. He's been in his native Sweden, dealing with a family matter.

Rick Bonnell

NBA suspends JJ Hickson 5 games under anti-drug policy.

Gerald Henderson

I said HOLLUP..........we just wanna ball like the grownups!!!

Rick Bonnell

Florida State's Jameis Winston suspended for first half of Saturday's Clemson game.

Rick Bonnell

My best friend is @tomsorensen Saying that because this is what I admire about him: charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/16/517…

Rick Bonnell

Man. The only thing I predict better than run-for-cover thunderstorms is NBA scenarios.

Rick Bonnell

Did I tell ya this would be an angry thunderstorm or what?

Rick Bonnell

Gorgeous fall night in Charlotte. Unfortunately all this cloud-to-cloud lightning is going to lead to something.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Nothing like Lexington..

Rick Bonnell

I've been asked if any Hornets preseason exhibitions will be televised. Nothing definitive, but sounds unlikely.

Rick Bonnell

Per @Brian Schmitz Seth Curry will be in Orlando Magic's training camp.

Rick Bonnell

From what I see on Twitter, Dabo Swinney adamant about Cole Stoudt continuing as starting QB.

Bismack Biyombo

Woke this morning being a proud African and I'm happy to said that! We are who we are and we can't hide that.. Proud to be from there

Gerald Henderson

nice day in the Q city. love this weather http://t.co/itzJhLkNEa

Rick Bonnell

ESPN ranked top 500 players in NBA, distributing list bottom to top. No Hornets among bottom 50. Says something about changed perception.

Gerald Henderson

“VIDEO: dunk attempt at Morehead State rally went very wrong ble.ac/1q7IIds http://t.co/fbH4xetAF5” @JonScheyer u could do better

Rick Bonnell

D-League assignments were pretty uncommon for Bobcats. Last one might have been Ryan Hollins.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets will be one of 13 NBA teams affiliated to the Fort Wayne, Ind., Development League franchise.

Bismack Biyombo

Time to get the best of this day, On and of the court...

Rick Bonnell

If an NBA player dunked down 12, and flexed, the reaction would be "what a fool."

Rick Bonnell

Why do players preen and coup when they score a touchdown behind by seven? Looks foolish.

Rick Bonnell

Jim Harbaugh is an odd dude. I saw it up-close last winter. But he gets results.

Gerald Henderson

Frank Gore w a PRO run #SNF

Rick Bonnell

Twardzik told me there's a subtle difference between a scoring pt guard and a 2-guard who can handle. But you better know difference.

Gerald Henderson

Miss America or Sunday Night Football?

Rick Bonnell

No. In the same way Thomas Davis outgrew safety, Taylor is a small forward. He can play the 2, but that isn't his ideal NBA position.

Rick Bonnell

The other reaction I got today that surprised me was the idea Jeff Taylor is best suited as a shooting guard (more).

Rick Bonnell

You want Gary Neal to make the occasional play to a teammate. You don't want him trying to be a distributor. Think Ben Gordon.

Rick Bonnell

I got questions today about whether Gary Neal could/should play pt guard. No. Big difference between 2-guard with a handle and a pt guard.

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI: Hornets coach Steve Clifford on Taylor, Vonleh, lack of big-man depth and a whole lot more: charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/13/517…

Cody Zeller

It's always fun spending time back at Assembly Hall but especially when it's for @distinxion camp! I hope the kids had as much fun as me!

Rick Bonnell

Vick replacing Smith...tick, tick, tick.

Rick Bonnell

So Doug Marrone or Bill O'Brien for NFL coach of the year?...oh wait, Riverboat Ron was 0-2 last season

Rick Bonnell

Derek Carr has that "So this is why my brother has nightmares" look as Raiders QB.

Gerald Henderson

Congrats @usabasketball on the #GoldMedal !!! Represented the USA in a great way and showed again that we have the best players

Bismack Biyombo

Man forget about this game.. Is been over!! Congrat to USA

Rick Bonnell

Team USA up 23 late in first half. Serbs look really flustered.

Bismack Biyombo

Without knowing that I'm from DRC and I know he been in only one city!! WTF????? Who are you trying to impress with lies.. I mean come on

Gerald Henderson

LOL we're punching Serbia

Bismack Biyombo

Met one of the famous artist and I ask him if he as been in DRCongo? He told me I have been every where in the DRC..

Bismack Biyombo

Either Serbia match USA intensity or they done for the rest of the game!! #FIBAWorldCup2014

Rick Bonnell

USA leads Serbia 35-21 end of first quarter. Kyrie Irving with a big game early.

Bismack Biyombo

Hope y'all watching this finals!! Because the end is going to be fun...

Rick Bonnell

Virginia students stormed the field for beating Louisville? Really? I know Cavs have been bad but...

Gerald Henderson

anyone else having trouble getting the fight on Time Warner Cable?

Rick Bonnell

Final: South Carolina 38, Georgia 35.

Rick Bonnell

Biggest cheer of the night for "The ruling on the field stands."

Rick Bonnell

The game that will not end...

Rick Bonnell

South Carolina first down by a fingertip.

Rick Bonnell

Lightning near Williams-Brice.

Rick Bonnell

Ref got totally wiped out. If his hat came off, does he come out for a play?

Rick Bonnell

Press box is swaying from Sandstorm. I think that's the real reason @ESPNMcGee left early.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: South Carolina 31, Georgia 20. Bulldogs threatening.

Rick Bonnell

Exceptional 17-yard to the left to the right to the sticks run for Gurley.

Rick Bonnell

A sack -- it's about a once-a-month thing for these Gamecocks.

Rick Bonnell

Georgia takes over 39 yards from the end zone.

Rick Bonnell

Georgia so needed to that 3-and-out.

Rick Bonnell

Georgia blitz leads to first sack of Dylan Thompson. 13-yard loss.

Rick Bonnell

Mike Davis back in to the game.

Rick Bonnell

Rock Hill's Gerald Dixon with the pass breakup that forces Georgia to punt.

Rick Bonnell

Fourth South Carolina touchdown drive of 75 yards today.

Rick Bonnell

Dylan Thompson one-yard rush for the TD. South Carolina leads 31-20 with 5 minutes left in the third quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Looks like he was down at the 1.

Rick Bonnell

Brandon Wilds 10-yard touchdown run for South Carolina. But crossing the goal line is now under review.

Rick Bonnell

South Carolina's offensive line has been terrific this game.

Rick Bonnell

South Carolina tailback Mike Davis appears to have injured his right foot or ankle.

Rick Bonnell

Mike Davis limping off the field.

Rick Bonnell

Gurley touchdown. South Carolina 24, Georgia 20. 11 plays, 85 yards on the drive.

Rick Bonnell

Gurley for 40 up the left sideline.

Rick Bonnell

South Carolina calls timeout. Short field goal would make it a 24-13 lead at halftime.

Rick Bonnell

Wildcat picks up two first downs for Gamecocks.

Rick Bonnell

Head Ball Coach kicks off to Gurley. Touchback.

Rick Bonnell

My Q-and-A with Hornets coach Steve Clifford: A family emergency has Jeff Taylor back in Sweden: charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/13/517…

Rick Bonnell

Touchdown South Carolina. Third 75-yard drive by the Gamecocks. Exactly the ball-control Spurrier needed to have a chance today.

Rick Bonnell

26-yard field goal for the Bulldogs. South Carolina 14, Georgia 13.

Rick Bonnell

Seems like only the refs didn't notice Todd Gurley's head-butt.

Rick Bonnell

South Carolina gets a stop. But unsportsmanlike conduct against Gamecocks.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: South Carolina 14, Georgia 10.

Rick Bonnell

Big stop for the Gamecocks.

Rick Bonnell

Gurley 54-yarder called back for a penalty.

Rick Bonnell

Another pop-up kickoff to play keep-away from Gurley.
