    Please…Spurrier was yanking his headset off…knocked off his visor…that does not count as a throwdown.

    Reserves?…North Texas?…I just hope you experts know of what you speak.

    I would love to see UGA raise even half that amount in one year.

    I really doubt that JFootball is as responsible for the increase as you want him to be.

    • I really doubt that JFootball has as little to do with the increase as you want him to be.

      • DawgPhan

        I dont care how much of the increase he could be responsible for. The only point I care about is that UGA hasn’t raised even half of that amount in a single year, ever.

        • So why did you comment in the first place?

          • DawgPhan

            I commented for the same reason I would comment on anything on this site, I have an opinion and a means of expressing it.

            • No, no… I meant if you don’t care about Manziel’s contribution to the bottom line, why comment about Manziel’s contribution to the bottom line?

              • DawgPhan

                because I thought that the note at the bottom of the article about the energy markets was more important than the Johnny Football aspect.

                Obviously having a good football team is good for the bottom line. Having a great player like Manziel is also good for the bottom line. I doubt that UGA could expect that sort of increase if Gurley II gets the needed votes in December.

                • The resurgence of Aggies football helped Texas A&M raise a record $740 million in donations during the past year. The Austin American-Statesman reported Monday (http://bit.ly/16wWgK7 ) that the fundraising haul exceeds the university’s previous high mark by nearly 70 percent.

                  It also dwarfed the more than $400 million raised by rival University of Texas during the same period.

                  I don’t see how the energy markets explain the highlighted difference between the two schools.

                  1) Energy markets have been as strong or stronger before. AM still 70% over previous high water mark. So something else is clearly in the mix.
                  2) Texas donations are down. Way down. Last I checked, lots of donors there making lots of money off energy markets, too. They are just not writing checks at the moment.

                  What’s different about Texas and AM right now? Hmm. That might take some research.

                  Or maybe Andy Fastow got back into accounting.

    Any guess on the LSU game time?

  4. Ole Miss@Auburn or UGA@Tenn are the only options for 10/5.

    Best part of Spurrier gif is the scoreboard at the bottom of the screen.

    SC is leading 28 zip.

      “JFootball®, I used to walk the circuit around Syria holding services for those who served Baalim (h/t Cosmotose), and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines as well as South Lebanon for healings that some non-Seat 37F writers called miracles but were just day-to-day for me. Your folks came from that same arena. We’re probably kin to each other. I ran a ‘Do You Feel Lucky Today?’ contest for them about those Manziel Greys? Did he crow once, twice or thrice? There’s no wrong answer…”

  7. It’s not like Oregon hasn’t gotten their shot against the SEC champion recently. And, Oregon should probably beat Stanford (which, btw, they play at Stanford on a Thurs night) and win their own division before calling out their BCS championship game opponent. Edward Aschoff is a hack.

    I had asked about this on the last buffet spread, but whither Trey Matthews?

    Did he get hurt and I just missed it?

    • Russ

      I think he’s a freshman playing against top ten opposition. He’ll make an impact (or two) in the near future. I don’t think there’s anything in particular wrong.

  9. I think Bama and Oregon should play in the Sugar Bowl.

    1) GATA, Rennie. What an incredible young man we can all be proud of.

    2) No, Oregon students, y’all really don’t. It has been proven lately that if you give an SEC coaching staff time to prepare for that offense, it goes from “Flying Duck” to “I Don’t Give A Duck” very quickly.

    UGA vs. lsu = 3:30 !!

  12. IveyLeaguer

    That Louisville schedule IS downright pathetic.

    I think Kentucky proved how problematic playing decent competition would be for Louisville. This is a team that started with basically nothing, playing it’s second game, and they have no offense.

    But I doubt many voters will put that together.

      “The team that got left out” is a stock character in the morality play that is CFB sports media and one with real benefits. Ask Brian Kelly is he prefers being the program that got left home for the MNCCG (Cincy) or the program got left in the dust in one (Notre Dame).

      I think Louisville could play the part well, but right now they are an alternate. Looks like someone(s) with a really strong 11-1 record is(are) going to get left out in the cold this year.

    Georgia and LSU will play on Sept. 28 at 3:30 p.m. in the showcase CBS national game of the week, The game between the No. 9 Bulldogs and No. 6 Tigers in Sanford Stadium would be the third top-10 opponent for Georgia already this season, assuming LSU gets by Auburn at home this Saturday.
