There’s always something to fill the chafing dishes.
- Mark Richt thinks Malcolm Mitchell is growing up.
- The Notre Dame bloggers are really getting into Brian VanGorder‘s tactics.
- Has QB guru George Whitfield, Jr. fudged his résumé? And if so, will anyone care?
- If you wonder why the Big Five don’t just take their footballs home and start a new organization outside of the NCAA, Andy Staples offers one good reason: “The cynical among us might also mention they like being tax-exempt; an organization made up solely of those five conferences might not be.”
- Behold the awesomeness that is the early schedule of the SEC Network. Gotta have it!
- Tennessee sure is going through walk-ons like it’s nobody’s business.
- Does one of the proposals adopted this week in Destin mean what I think it means? “Increase bowl revenue distribution in football and require all teams to be financially responsible for all guaranteed ticket purchases” sounds like the conference won’t be pitching in to cover expense shortages due to unsold tickets any more. Of course the SEC is stepping in on the front end to limit the size of those packages, but in an age when the bowls are being told to pick for rankings over commercial popularity, that’s a change that could bear watching.
- Mark Richt likes Mike Bobo a lot more as a coach than he did as a recruit.
