I guarantee you the only person who cares less about the question posed in this header than me is Nick Saban.
C’mon, Joe. You know better.
Alleva said the possibility of selling beer isn’t about money. Has he even run the numbers?
“I haven’t studied it,” he said. “I have no idea.”
First rule of life: when they say it’s not about money, it’s about money.
A missing debit card, shoes taken as “collateral” (at Free Shoes University!) and an attempted murder charge… maybe this is why Jeremy Pruitt decided it was wise to get out of
Dodge City Tallahassee while the gettin’ was still good.
“The fact that Tammy is standing right in front of me pretty much seals the quest to have a No. 1 bestseller, I think.”
PAWWWLLL has a book coming out, which raises three questions:
- How long has it been since most of his listeners read a book?
- Who plays Finebaum in the movie based on the book?
- How did he convince Nick Saban to pose for the centerfold?
I’m kidding about that last question… at least I hope I am.
Per CBSSports’ Pat Kirwan, Aaron Murray was voted the toughest quarterback to face by the SEC defensive backs Kirwan interviewed at the Senior Bowl and combine.
That seems unlikely. Aren’t most SEC games by definition big games?
Tracy Rocker talks about what sold him on coming to Georgia:
“What got me here was Jeremy Pruitt, just a conversation with him, talking about what he was looking for and he was trying to put together,” Rocker said. “He got me in front of Coach Richt, and we hit it off and saw eye-to-eye on some things and wanted to go in the same direction. And everything took care of itself from there.”
Hmmm. I wonder if Nick Fairley’s name came up in the conversation.
ESPN is reporting that the NCAA is seriously considering an early signing period for college football.
College football is taking steps toward establishing an early signing period, according to the NCAA official who manages the national letter of intent program.
Susan Peal, NCAA associate director of operations, said the continued acceleration of recruiting has led the Conference Commissioners Association to consider an earlier date to supplement the long-existing date in February, similar to the structure for basketball and other sports.
“I think everyone wants an early signing period,” Peal said this week. “It’s just trying to nail down what’s the appropriate date for that.”
Can’t say I’m surprised, given the way the whole process has noticeably accelerated over the past few years. I used to be unsure as to whom an early period would favor, but it seems clear to me now with the way the power programs are adding advisory staff to beef up contacts with the high schools that they would be the victors to whom the spoils would flow. Which is probably why the NCAA is taking this up now.
