It’s OK for Georgia fans to do it, though.

Anthony Allen has Stingtalk all a-flutter after this tweet:

Dear GaTech fans, don’t talk bad about my team. We see every word you say. I have enough trouble trying to keep their heads up now. thanksTue Oct 26 22:31:34 via Twitter for iPhone

No problem, Anthony. We can take up the slack here.

“This should close the door on that subject.”

It looks like the Red and Black’s Zach Dillard will have to wait on that Pulitzer he was hoping for with his Caleb King exposé.

Easily my favorite part:

… The response from the SEC compliance office came at an opportune time for the Bulldogs.

If the Athletic Association had not heard a ruling by Saturday’s game in Jacksonville, Fla., coaches would have had to make a decision whether to play or sit King — much like the Bulldogs were forced to do with A.J. Green earlier this season.

No doubt Richt was losing a lot of sleep over that.

“We’re throwing it, I can tell you that.”

Les Miles can’t figure out what’s wrong with LSU’s passing game because, after all, in practice every day he can see what’s going on:  “And we’re throwing. We’re throwing balls.”

With keen coaching insight like that, it’s hard to believe his team is last in the conference in passing yardage.

“We need him.”

Free Chris Rainey!

Corch Meyers, the suspense is killing me.  Killing me, I tells ‘ya.

So how good is Cam Newton?

This good.

… LSU led the SEC in rushing defense last week, but that was before the Tigers allowed 440 rushing yards in their 24-17 loss at Auburn. Newton had a season-high 217 yards, and Auburn’s punishing performance resulted in LSU plummeting from first (83.6) to seventh (128.1) in the league. [Emphasis added.]

Strong legacy

Let me again commend the University of Louisville for its wisdom in hiring Charlie Strong.  My only question is, what took you guys so long?

YEAR AVG SCORE AVG YDS FL SCORE FL YDS
2009 28.9 362.2 17 286
2008 31.5 426 10 398
2007 32.6 375.6 42 413
2006 25.2 311.8 14 215
2005 29.5 391.2 10 286
2004 27.9 404.5 31 405
2003 26.5 380.3 13 390
2002 32.1 384.9 13 294
AVG 29.275 379.5625 18.75 335.875

During his eight-year stint as Florida’s defensive coordinator, Strong’s defenses held Georgia on average to 10.5 points and almost 45 yards less per game than Georgia’s seasonal numbers.  That’s a solid body of work.  Even in the two years when Florida came up on the short end, it’s not as if his defense gave up embarrassing numbers.

I won’t miss seeing him on Saturday.  I suspect Mike Bobo shares my sentiment.
