A match made in heaven (if heaven were hell, that is)

Be still, my heart.  The possibilities are tantalizing.

Fall, the season for love

I got several very nice e-mails in response to my “Why we’re here” post of last week.  One of those mentioned something that piqued my interest:

… 1954 was the year he and my mom started dating.   Makes you wonder how many other long term relationships have started out between the hedges?

It does.  So those of you out there who have tales of romance that were sparked by Georgia football, how ’bout sharing them today?

The Winter of Muschamp’s Discontent

So, Tyler Murphy joins the exodus from Gainesville, leaving Boom in something of a pickle for next season.

With freshman Max Staver also transferring, Florida will now have just two scholarship QBs on its roster. It does expect to sign top recruit Will Grier, ESPN’s No. 2 QB prospect in the nation, in January.

The Gators’ other returning quarterback, redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg, started the final three games of the season when Murphy aggravated a sprain in his throwing shoulder. Murphy first hurt his shoulder against LSU on Oct. 12. The Gators lost that game and the final six on their schedule.

Once again, it’s Jeff Driskel and a cast of thousands hundreds tens two.

Muschamp insisted the job would “be an open competition” in 2014, but many believe it will be Driskel’s to lose. Muschamp has made it clear that he is tweaking the offense — he’s adding hurry-up aspects and might use more spread concepts — to better fit Driskel’s skill set. Of course, those changes also would seemingly fit Murphy.

The school did not make Muschamp available for comment or release a statement, an indication that the coach wasn’t on board with Murphy’s choice.

I can’t imagine how much fun Boom’s gonna have making the booster club rounds this offseason.

How you know yours is a football school.

Alabama is now spending more money on Nick Saban’s salary than the combined expenses of all its other sports outside of football and basketball.
