Friday morning buffet

It’s all good.

  • If you look at that Steele preview of Georgia, you might notice that he predicts one true freshman will start in ’09:  Branden Smith, at cornerback.
  • Stacy Searels in the Auburn recruiting limo?
  • “The NCAA defines a secondary violation as one that ‘is isolated or inadvertent in nature, provides or is in­tended to provide only a min­imal recruiting, competitive or other advantage, and does not include any significant re­cruiting inducement or extra benefit.’” And I didn’t think those guys had a sense of humor.
  • The Quad’s preview of #89 Mississippi State is a good read.  And this is the factoid of the day:  The team’s 3-2 loss to Auburn on Sept. 13 had to be the ugliest game of the season…  Of the 15 Major League Baseball games on Tuesday night, only one game featured fewer runs than the combined points for the Bulldogs and the Tigers last September.
  • Hey, did you hear about the (former) Gator who committed to Junior’s programDid youDid you?  Did I mention that he was a former Gator?  You think this is one of those “little nuggets” Barnhart was writing about a couple of weeks ago?
  • Lots of new quarterbacks in the SEC this year.
  • Auburn’s recruiters prefer to think of themselves as “trend setters”.  That does sound a lot better than “intentional violators of NCAA recruiting rules”.

    “in­tended to provide only a min­imal recruiting, competitive or other advantage, and does not include any significant re­cruiting inducement or extra benefit.”

    Pray tell, where is the line between a minimal recruiting . . . advantage, and a significant recruiting inducement?

    Just one example of the internal contradiction: is the same activity forgiveable if it involves recruiting a player who doesn’t pan out, but punishable if it involves Matthew Stafford or Reggie Bush?

    Whoever wrote that should have been a legislative aide in the USSR.

    Thank God. There was no buffet yesterday and I was STARVING!!!!

    Couple of questions.
    When is John Brown officially no longer the top 1% of 1%?
    Does Coach Nutt really think he’s getting into the other coaches’ heads? I mean, seriously, “Everyone can try to fool themselves…”?
