This triptych currently adorns ESPN.com’s college football page, which highlights an article summarizing spring practices around the SEC:
Aside from participating in SEC football, what do all three have in common?
It can’t be accomplishments, since the guy in the middle hasn’t coached his first SEC game yet.
It can’t be winning, since the guy in the middle has a 5-15 record as a head coach.
It can’t be 2009 prospects, since nobody expects the guy in the middle’s team to play in the SECCG.
So you tell me.
Look out, baby, it’s that dreaded ESPN narrative coming down the tracks. Junior is newsworthy. Because… just because.
