Line up and grab a plate, people.
- Georgia’s opener on ABC is but one of many first week of the season appearances by SEC schools on Disney.
- Finebaum’s tribute to Bobby Lowder is as cringe-worthy as you might imagine. My favorite part: “… I heard several prominent Alabama boosters say, ‘I wish we had a Bobby Lowder running our program.’” Roger that, Houston.
- CFN throws some love in Georgia’s direction in this roundtable discussion about programs poised to get attention after September has run its course.
- Mike Huguenin gets off the thought of the day: “The next time someone mentions the poor officiating in a college football game – and if you’re watching a Pac-10 game that surely is going to happen – I want you to laugh, then say, ‘Well, at least it’s not as bad as the officiating in the 2009 NBA playoffs.’” I probably would have tossed in a Penn Wagers reference, but point taken.
- Skip past the first part of this Feldman post (who’s he trying to kid with a list of ten BCS busters, anyway?) and you get to a very good question that’s been bugging me for a while.
