Friend of the blog Bryant Denny has the same reaction to the one-game penalty imposed by the NCAA on the Miami players caught up in the Nevin Shapiro scandal that I have.
What a load of crap.
It’s all coming together, Dawgnation… Bill Goldberg is getting back in the ring.
Does Nike design Pro Combat gear for wrasslers?
Chris Petersen pays respect.
Petersen says Georgia is "bigger and faster" than Boise State, and than Boise State normally sees.—

Of course, that could simply be his version of Dooley complimenting Directional A&M’s long snapper as being the finest in the country.
Personally speaking, I think Spencer ought to retire the Fulmer Cup (or at least rename it in Chizik’s honor) after this go ’round. Nobody’s gonna touch that score… I hope.
… Barring Georgia’s entire team going out and getting one count of disorderly conduct each from the pesky hand of the Athens PD, this is over. (And Georgia’s saving all their disorderly conduct for their defensive downs against Boise on Saturday night! Wocka Grantham wocka!)
I bet McGarity stays up late tonight.
Ten Dream Teamers appear, although not Ray Drew. Damned scooters.
Malcome’s not there, which means he’s still banged up.
What’s scary: seeing the backup o-linemen in print.
What’s not: the depth at tight end (it looks like Jay Rome is headed for a redshirt).
Since I’m already on record as saying that I have no clue what to expect about Georgia’s performance this season, that makes it kind of hard to put together an SEC 2011 season projection as I usually have.
But I’m not giving up here. Instead, I’m taking a different approach. Rather than give you my predicted records, I’ll list the schools in the order they finished in the conference last year, look at areas of potential improvement and decline and assess in what direction I expect each to go by comparison to 2010.
In other words, pure seat of the pants BS.
Let’s hope this works.

September 1st is just around the corner, so dig in.
Let it roll, baby, roll.
Texas A&M’s departure from the Big 12 Conference drew closer to reality on Monday when the university’s president, R. Bowen Loftin, sent a letter to the Big 12 board chairman, the Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton, notifying the league that the Aggies would formally withdraw — very likely on Tuesday — according to two college officials with direct knowledge of the decision.
I have a very hard time believing that the SEC is ready to commit to an unbalanced divisional arrangement, so if TAMU’s on board, that immediately begs the question about the identity of the potential 14th member.
Of course, Arkansas could always jump to the Big 12 to even out the numbers. Riiight.
