Fake punt? I thought you said fake death.

I’m not sure what this guy thought he was selling in the Arkansas State-Miami game, but it’s certainly the most unusual move I’ve seen during a fake punt.

Maybe he was trying to distract the safety.

“Certainly, now is not the time to start pointing fingers and looking at external factors.”

You think Georgia has issues?  Troy blew not one, but two fourteen-point leads and lost at home to a Football Championship Subdivision team.

The hits just keep on coming.

Nick Chubb goes down.

Chubb had surgery on his left thumb at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens on Monday. According to Lavelle Chubb, Nick’s mother, doctors inserted surgical screws to repair a fracture that Chubb suffered in practice this past week.

He’ll miss the Troy game, maybe more.

Funny to say this, but it could be the big break Keith Marshall’s looking for.

“I’d rather deal with the heat than with football schedules.”

Ah, the social niceties and the South

For Younker, an Alabama fan like her fiance, the answer was simple: Wed Brandon Cutts on June 20, 2015, before football begins. That way, guests won’t have to decide whether to attend a game or the wedding; she won’t have to miss a game to get married; and a student dressed as Big Al — who will appear at a wedding in his Crimson Jersey for a $400 fee — can appear at the wedding for photos.

And, as a bonus, Younker won’t have to cope with the in-season passions of her mom’s family, who are Tennessee fans; her dad’s family, which pulls for South Carolina; and her brother, who attends Auburn.

Here’s the story of a wedding planner who earned her stripes.

Professional wedding planner Kavonda L. Rogers of Montgomery said “World War III” nearly broke out a few years ago when a bride settled on a wedding date not realizing it was the same day as the South’s oldest football rivalry game, Auburn-Georgia.

“It was intense. People were saying, ‘No, you have to move the wedding. You can’t do this,'” said Rogers.

The solution: Rogers arranged for a big-screen television to be turned on in a room right off the reception area. At game time, most of the men left the reception to huddle around the TV.

Someone in Montgomery who’s blissfully ignorant of the Georgia-Auburn game?  Sacrilege.

What sucks the most about Saturday night’s loss.

Mark May is an ass.  He was born that way.  He’s spent his whole life enhancing his ass skills.  He shows them off to a national audience on a daily basis.  He’s a worthless talking head.

Yet I can’t disagree with a single word of this.

ESPN’s Mark May was critical also on Saturday night for Georgia calling faking a bootleg play with Mason instead of just feeding the ball to Gurley: “Why are using him as a decoy? Why are you trying to run a boot there? Mark Richt, you’re the head coach. Mike Bobo, you’re the offensive coordinator, that’s the worst offensive play call of the season by far. You had a situation where you hand the ball to Gurley. First-and-goal at the 4-yard line. You hand it to him again and again and again until you score and take the lead.”

Just shoot me.

*************************************************************************

UPDATE:  In the interest of fairness, I present Cory Brinson’s rebuttal.  Although, in further fairness, the best defense he can muster up is that it wasn’t as bad a call as Mark May made it out to be.
