If the world is going to give Corch tons of shit for turning a blind eye to Aaron Hernandez’ behavior in Gainesville, I sure hope somebody in the media has a few questions to direct Junior’s way about Janzen Jackson.

Inspired mashup from Spencer Hall:
It would have been nice to stick that “yeah! yeah! yeah! yeah!” from the ’78 UK game somewhere in there, but I’m quibbling.
I don’t know if any of you have caught the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire yet. It’s about the personal computer revolution that took place in the early ’80s. The show is set in Dallas, although, interestingly enough, it’s filmed in Atlanta.
That may explain this touch of historical realism that faithful reader of the blog, Reservoir Dawg, caught and clipped:
Pretty cool, eh? Although I would have awarded bonus points if somebody had mentioned Craig James and hookers.
Suffering from a World Cup hangover this morning? Eat something.
- The Pac-12 distributed only 68 percent of its revenue to members in fiscal 2013. Man, those television networks are expensive.
- Would paying college players slow down early exits for the pros? Maybe.
- Gentry Estes looks at where Brice Ramsey’s at right now.
- Kentucky beat writer asks the musical question “Does Georgia have anyone left to play defense?” More than Kentucky does, I’m willing to bet.
- Hawaii athletic department fails to pay players summer scholarship money due to clerical snafu, resulting in seven kids sleeping in the locker room until paperwork went through. AD’s analysis of the situation: “When it comes right down to it, we need to plan better.” No shit, Sherlock.
- In fiscal year 2012-3, Georgia generated more revenue from football and men’s basketball than your average NHL team.
- To some extent, Chris Low’s rankings of SEC defensive lines looks like it was determined by throwing random darts. Which probably means nobody really has a good handle on what the conference has this year.
- Kevin Scarbinsky wonders if the SEC needs a rule prohibiting dismissed players from returning to the league, and concludes it won’t happen. “Richt deserves credit for sticking to his principles in letting players go knowing they can and have come back to beat him. Hard to imagine the rest of the schools in the league would line up to save him from his own idealistic self.”
- Here’s a list of ten toughest non-conferences schedules. Only one SEC team makes the list – guess who.
- And here’s Phil Steele’s combined experience chart for 2014. Georgia is middle of the pack in that department.
- John Infante points out that if Joker Phillips’ recruiting transgression is deemed serious enough, Boom could face the possibility of a suspension under the head coach responsibility bylaw.
- “Auburn is all about giving players second chances…” Gah.
If you don’t have the law, you argue the facts; if you don’t have the facts, you argue the law; if you have neither the facts nor the law…
I get that the college presidents are stubborn, clueless, detached from reality and whatever other labels you might want to stick them with… but, damn, letting O’Bannon go on like this is simply self-destructive.
Of course, they’ve got their ace in the hole to play Thursday. Right.

It’s whether she has anything to say after Emmert’s testimony that’s more interesting, of course.
