Tuesday morning buffet

Plenty of stuff to chow down on this morning:

  • In case you’ve wondered what Robert Edwards is up to these days, here you go.
  • Here’s an indication of how 2009 has already had its share of twists and turns:  Oklahoma is looking at a win against Miami as a stepping stone to getting back in the national title hunt.
  • Mitch Mustain – as a quarterback, he’ll make a heck of a punter.  His mom must be thrilled.
  • Junior’s showmanship pays off big for CBS“The Florida-Tennessee drew an overnight household rating/share of 4.8/11 on CBS, which is up 60 percent from last year’s Florida-Tennessee game (3.0/7). Saturday’s rating/share was the highest CBS has had for its first game of the college football season since 2002, when the UF-Miami game drew a 6.0/13.”
  • For those of you unhappy with Georgia’s defense, things could be a lot worse.
  • Another interesting stat from the Arkansas game:  “Richt’s Bulldogs had never won consecutive contests in which they trailed at any point by double digits until the past two weeks. In fact, the last time Georgia turned the trick was in Ray Goff’s second season as coach in 1990, when the Bulldogs defeated Southern Miss 18-17 and Alabama 17-16.”
  • Here’s a review of Munson’s book.
  • Progress of a sort“Kiffin said Crompton played “better” at Florida than he did against UCLA. The quarterback threw for exactly 93 yards each game, but he decreased his interceptions from three against the Bruins to two against the Gators.”
  • None of the USC coaches told Aaron Corp he was starting last Saturday?  Weird. (h/t The Wiz of Odds)
  • I bet Penn Wagers is jonesing to call the Georgia-ASU game.  Arizona State ranks 118th in the nation in penalty yards per game with 94.5. Georgia is 115th with 86.3.

    So I guess I should get ready for a 4+ hour game Saturday night?

    LOL at Crompton. He is not what the natives call “good.”

    Jeez, I was already a little worried about the way the program appears to be heading, then you had to throw out the first Mark Richt/Ray Goff comparison that I ever recall seeing in print.

    Man, I hope we play some defense this week.

    The fact that rating for CBS on Saturday were up had everything to do with the hype about Kiffin’s off-season comments and NOTHING to do with the lousy commentating spewed at us weekly in the SEC by Verne Lundquist and Gary Daniels. These guys are worse than useless as commentators. I’d rather listen to audio from a tellatubby episode than the nonsense these guys talk about.

    First, piss on Penn Wagers. He’s our version of Ron Cherry, an absolute joke of an “official”.

    Next, I gotta stick up for Uncle Verne. He’s getting a little old, but I still enjoy his calls of the game, and Danielson is pretty good as well. Both of them do a great job of being the SEC homer.

    Now Brent Mushburger you can keep!

    Whatever happened to Ron Franklin? He’s a great announcer.

      They used the Holly Rowe sweetheart incident to try to put Ron to sleep but ended up sending him to cover Big 12 games, which is almost the same as putting him down.
