Tuesday breakfast bits

Feel free to sample to your heart’s content:

  • Who knows what it means over the long haul, but Dan Mullen sure seems to be kicking the Nuttster’s arse on the recruiting trail so far.
  • Brian Cook alert:  not only does DeWayne Walker plan to oversign, he’s bragging about it.
  • When you’ve got open speculation that Randy Shannon may take back the DC reins at Da U as a cost-saving measure, that’s a pretty good indication that Willie Martinez won’t be seeing palm trees in his immediate future.
  • If Auburn sounds a little desperate in its quarterback recruiting these days, that’s probably because it is.
  • College football – still the sport of choice for young rednecks with a degree.
  • I hope Bryan McClendon turns out to be a bargain.  With that starting salary, it shouldn’t be too hard, right?
  • If you need proof that Notre Dame fans are feeling it after that awesome showing in the Hawai’i Bowl, look no further than Bruce Feldman’s mailbag.  At least that guy’s a fan, though.  What’s Matt Hayes’ excuse?

Vote early and often.

The Wiz has his annual Cheapest Shot of the Season poll up now.  There’s plenty of ugly stuff to peruse.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a true cheap shot contest without some Auburn offensive lineman going after an opponent’s knee.   Yep, it’s tradition that makes college football special.

“This might just be my personal prejudice…”

Ya’ think?

Coming from a member of a fanbase that used to delude itself on a regular basis by insisting that Corey Jenkins was going to win a Heisman Trophy before he left Columbia for a glorious career in the NFL, that’s especially rich.

I have no idea how Stafford’s pro career will turn out, but the idea that he’ll “ruin the franchise” if the Lions draft him is laughable.  The team didn’t win a game last year.  There’s no place to go but up, Stafford or no Stafford.

You’d think a Gamecock fan would understand that.

“That was a long time ago…”

How’s this for perspective?

The last time the NFL Cardinals won a championship, the star of the game was… Charlie Trippi.  In his rookie season.

That’s some drought.  No wonder he can’t remember too many of the details.
