Tuesday morning buffet

The line is open.

  • CFN thinks the Pruitt hire is swell.
  • The next Georgia Tech stud is running back Travis Custis, who was a highly rated recruit in 2013 but had to sit out last season to meet NCAA eligibility requirements.  I almost hope he pans out, just so he can provide a ready source to rag Tech fans about when they bring up academics.
  • A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that a large majority of the general public opposes paying salaries to college athletes beyond the scholarships currently offered.  The public is split on unionization, though.  Too bad there wasn’t a poll question about players’ being compensated for their likenesses.  (h/t John Infante)
  • Generally, I’m not in favor of parents blocking their sons from choosing where to play college ball.  But when I see a quote like this“… It would be nice to have an offer from Oregon because of their uniforms…” – I can understand where some mommas are coming from.
  • Mark Cuban can see a future when the NFL moves some of its games to Saturday.  That means war!
  • Hugh Freeze no doubt welcomes this development at Alabama for recruiting purposes.
  • John Infante sees college football going down the same road as college basketball if the coaches don’t get their act together and come up with a more comprehensive approach to reforming recruiting rules.

    NFL on Saturday? I know they have great ratings on Sunday but I wonder how many of those viewers are people like me who will watch the local NFL team but really prefer college football. The NFL may not want to find out.

    Wait until the next time Hugh and Mel are recruiting in downtown Jackson
