Time to chow down, people.
- Dan Wetzel sez: don’t hate Boise State, hate the BCS. Yawn.
- Speaking of which, maybe this is the angle Mark Richt should use to prepare the troops for Jax this season. They weren’t exactly scared of the Broncos when they played them.
- TAMU’s athletic director, on contemplating a move to the SEC: “I was concerned with changing conferences that we may not be ready for the level of competition if we decided to leave.” Eat your heart out, Jim Delany.
- Some SEC fun gambling facts.
- San Diego State is buying itself a cupcake game.
- In a move that I’m sure meets with Nick Saban’s complete approval, Penn State is starting a true freshman at quarterback. I wonder if JoePa promised the kid he’d be there for his entire career.
- This can’t hurt Georgia’s prospects on Saturday: “The Louisiana defensive front is hurting. The last thing the Ragin’ Cajuns need is to have problems on the line against Georgia’s offensive front, possibly the best in America, but that’s what they’re dealing with as top pass rushing prospect, Terrell Richardson, has a head injury while Nate Douglas and Tyrell Gaddies have hamstring problems.”
- Stewart Mandel’s explanation for his prediction that Georgia plays in a BCS bowl game and Florida doesn’t – “… I do believe Florida will win the SEC East, but with at least one or two losses. That means if the Gators lose in the SEC title game, they’ll have two or three losses. And after Florida fans’ meager turnout to last year’s Sugar Bowl, I figure the New Orleans game will take a different SEC team this year, in this case Georgia, which I project to go 10-2.” – is pure fantasy. No way Florida beats Georgia to play in the SECCG and then finds itself pushed aside…
- North Carolina is preparing to play LSU without as many as sixteen players suiting up? Wow.
