Jeff Long, man of action

I don’t know if anyone caught Brett McMurphy’s Twitter feed yesterday, but… well, start here.

Long talked a good game.

Then comes the punchline.

That’s from the man charged with making the playoff selection committee’s deliberations transparent.  Good luck with that, y’all.

Bret Bielema is surprised about something that didn’t surprise anyone else.

C’mon, Bert.  You knew the job was dangerous when you took it.

Jeff Long sure can pick ‘em.

Stewart Mandel declares that “With Lane Kiffin now muzzled as a member of Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama, Bielema is threatening to replace him as college football’s most reviled figure.”

Friday morning buffet

There’s always something to grab.

  • Talk about preparation:  Mike Ekeler watched every snap last season of the Bulldogs’ special teams before his interview with Richt.  Talk about being a glutton for punishment, too.
  • Based on recruiting rankings, which teams and coaches were the biggest over and under achievers?
  • ESPN is set to announce that the 2014 college football season will begin at its earliest point in 11 years.
  • Here are some details from the third day of hearings on whether the National Labor Relations Board should certify the Northwestern players’ unionization request.
  • And here is a listing of the spring practice start dates and spring game dates for all 14 SEC schools.
  • Charlie Pierce uses Mark Richt to mock Georgia pols’ attempt to let guns on campus.
  • Arkansas’ plan to modify its school color leads to a post about color scales that probably has more information than you could possibly care about.  But since it also mentions Georgia, what the hell.
  • MaconDawg wonders if Georgia’s 2015 recruiting indicates that future offensive changes are a possibility.

“… I had to wonder if I ever would have this opportunity again.”

Tell me, what looks worse – a program coming off a national title losing its defensive coordinator in a lateral move for more money to a “lesser program”, or a program losing its defensive coordinator to a superior program for less money and responsibility?

That’s gotta sting, Bert.
