These are a few of my favorite plays (of 2013), a series.

There were so many great plays in the Georgia-South Carolina game, but the one you see when you dial this clip up to the 2:10:12 mark – the pass to Quayvon Hicks to get the offense out of the shadow of the end zone on the game ending drive – was my favorite.

It starts with a fabulous playcall by Bobo.  The ‘Cock defense was selling out to stop Todd Gurley and Murray sold the play fake well enough to cause the defensive line to hesitate and draw the linebackers in, creating space.  Hicks does a great job gathering in the throw and doesn’t try to do anything fancy.

The end result was 23 yards of pleasure.  Me likey!

Kirby has a mentor.

I can’t help it.  The first thing that came to mind when I read this comment

He credited inside linebackers coach Kevin Steele and former Alabama defensive coordinator Joe Kines as two mentors who have relayed to him the dangers of taking the wrong job. Kines went 3-6-1 as the interim head coach at Arkansas in 1992…

… was this.

Say anything forcefully enough and it’ll stick.

Musical palate cleanser, the soul just keeps on coming edition

I’m not sure what made me decide to buy Toots in Memphis when it came out in the late ’80s.  I liked reggae, but I wasn’t a fanatic about it.  So the concept of combining the legendary Dunbar-Shakespeare rhythm section with Stax/Memphis session players sounded interesting, but maybe not compelling.

Then I took the album home, put the record on the turntable, dropped the needle and heard this:

Damned tasty, no?  If your appetite is whetted, here’s a bonus cut.
