“Georgia knows what they are doing…”

Maybe this is the next step:

“Now it’s not the same excitement as if Georgia would’ve offered Jordan a long time ago, but we understand; It is what it is,” Colbert said. “Georgia knows what they are doing, and I like how they are doing it. They’ve got his cousin, Owens. They’ve offered his classmates, Fuller and Willis. And if they hire (DeVoursney), that would make a big, big difference.”

Steve DeVoursney, who resigned as Griffin’s coach last week, may apply for a quality control position at UGA, according to a couple of players.

Maybe it’s time to retire the “Mark Richt has lost control” meme.

When they make a slideshow out of players arrested in the 2014 offseason, TAMU, you’ve got problems.

“The N.C.A.A. system is messed up, and they’re doing something about it.”

After reading this and this, don’t you get the feeling that if Northwestern and the players could dump the whole unionization mess in the NCAA’s lap, they would do so in a heartbeat?

The NCAA does reform like nobody’s business.

Also from that Maisel post I linked to:

The reduction of training table to one meal per day took effect in the NCAA’s cost-cutting reforms of 1991. That was the same package that included the 20-hour rule, which has become a mockery, and the “restricted-earnings” assistants, who could be paid only $16,000 per year. The NCAA had to pay a $54.5 million settlement in 1999 to undo that decision. Undoing the cutback on meals nearly guts the entire reform package.

“Nearly”?  What’s left?

Football, the South and bigotry

Can somebody explain the difference between this

Mr. Ruiz, the former prosecutor who handled the case for the state attorney’s office, recalled that the coach at the time, the revered Bobby Bowden, attempted to convince him that a crime had not occurred. A jury eventually acquitted the player.

“I learned quickly what football meant in the South,” said Mr. Ruiz, who grew up in New York State. “Clearly, it meant a lot…”

… and this?

In a speech Wednesday night, Slive described his job thusly: “…I am the trustee of a sacred public trust, and if you live in the South, you know exactly what I mean.”

‘Cause I’m not seeing one.

Here’s something that’ll put “I saw it on the Internet, so it must be true” to the test.

The surprise isn’t that Stephen Garcia is predicting that South Carolina will win the SEC East this season.  It’s that there’s a web site out there that describes Stephen Garcia as an “expert”.

One tough cookie

Well, if this isn’t the capper:

He [Denny Murray, Aaron’s dad] also told me that Murray was hurt a lot worse than people thought in that 2010 game against Auburn in which Nick Fairley was allowed to unleash a personal assault. Murray actually left that game with a broken sternum, in addition to shoulder and knee injuries. [Emphasis added.]

It’s impressive that Aaron was able to finish the game.  I’m not sure what adjective applies to Fairley being able to finish the game.

Oh… and seriously, this?  Sure.
