Friday morning buffet

There’s always something tasty in the world of college football.

  • Paul Myerberg notes that there may be one weekend that proves to be the exception to the adage that you don’t plan a wedding in the South on a fall weekend:  “… Nov. 17, when the [SEC] will feature more than twice as many games against F.C.S. competition, seven, as it does actual conference games, three.”
  • For those who thought Tommy Tuberville would be a step up from Mike Leach in the recruiting department, it turns out that Texas Tech brought in seven JUCO early enrollees with its most recent class.
  • Something to keep an eye on, playoff fans:  pay options begin to creep back into viewing March Madness.
  • And Texas asks for patience with the Longhorn Network.
  • Sally Jenkins’ Captain Queeg analogy for Randy Edsall is pretty awesome.  (Although I wish she could have worked the strawberries in there, somehow.)
  • Will Dorial Green-Beckham be a bigger challenge for Georgia now?
  • This comes as absolutely no surprise to me:  “When he secured a coveted spot on an all-star game roster reportedly assembled by “the (2006) U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Team made up of Tom Lemming of CSTV and representatives of Scout.com“, Adam James had no Division I scholarship offers and 14 receptions in 10 games as a tight end playing in the state’s second-lowest (2A) Texas high school football classification.”

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say Mitchell will be covering Beckham by the time the game rolls around.

    Dorial Green-Beckham? I’ll take the Calvin Johnson flahbacks. He wore the bagel. Can we get the Reggie Ball flashbacks to go with them?

    We managed to lose 7 last year with AJ.

      More than just the winning record over GT, that isn’t so surprising with a team game like football, but I recall we just shut him down somehow. Can’t remember how Willie did it, but we just neutered him except for a play, or two. This Beckham kids looks to have all the tools a young Johnson had coming out of HS, very physical build. He will be a challenge year one, imo. Not saying we cannot deal with it, but there will be very little tape on how they plan to use him before we tee it up.

  3. What fresh hell is this?

    Strawberries?
    Wasn’t it peaches?

    I love Craig James. He makes me feel so much better about myself.

    “On board my ship, excellent performance is standard. Standard performance is sub-standard. And sub-standard does not exist.” best line i’ve heard in awhile, and its from a WashPo columnist.

    Craig James v Beck Campbell Helicopter Parent Cage Match

    At least Ms Campbell managed to get Arkansas a better coach.

    Randy needs more ball bearings. In next week’s episode, Sally will have him playing the role of Captain Schettino

    Sally Jenkens’s title for the martinet, Edsall, is spot on as “Chief Petty Officer”. That is a good’un.

    Terrible to hear that the LHN has a failure to launch. Could it be that the “favorite son” status of Jessie’s favorite son could have anything to do with it? Brooks’s story on Adam James and the wheelbarrows needed to haul the ton of shit called “interest from other schools” is like the political interest it has inspired for his fist-bumping low-IQ father.

  9. I rank the MIssou game right up there with the USCe game as the biggest stumbling blocks for the Dawgs. However, playing in the SEC, , On any given saturday, ETC. Go dawgs.

  10. A question: why was The Pirate taken in? OK, the boy couldn’t play dead in a Western, and yet Tech took him. Smart people make big mistakes, too. And sometimes, when they think they are being smartest, much bigger mistakes than dumb people could ever imagine.
