Almost cut my hair

I am having a very hard time deciding what part of the Steven Garcia being hired by Saturday Down South to do something (“I am definitely going to be doing it, but I am not exactly sure what I am going to be doing”) story is the most Garcia-ish.

I mean, there’s this…

Garcia, who is once again sporting hair to his shoulders, was interviewed and hired at a blackjack table at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, Roberts said.

… and then there’s this:

“He said, ‘Do you want me to cut my hair?’ I said, ‘No, all of our fans call it the Stephen Garcia Mullet. You have to keep it,’” Roberts said.

What is it about South Carolina quarterbacks and mullets?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that alcohol was involved.

Since you asked…

Hey, look who’s joining the blogger ranks!

Former South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia is getting a voice in the media world.

Saturday Down South on Sunday revealed via Twitter on Sunday that it was bringing Garcia on board later in the summer.

You can probably guess what’s coming next.

Suggestions?  You guys got a lifestyle editor?

Friday morning buffet

Just because it’s June doesn’t mean I can’t fill a few chafing dishes for you.

  • I’ll go into detail later this summer about it, but perhaps this is the best thing Georgia’s secondary has going for it this season.
  • Bitcoin is going to sponsor a bowl game.  Will it hand out a virtual trophy?
  • The Supreme Court’s ruling in the Aereo case may impact how we watch the NFL, but keep in mind what’s written in this piece could also apply to CBS and its contract with the SEC.
  • Here’s the Post and Courier’s preview of the Clemson-Georgia game.  And here’s the preview of the South Carolina-Georgia game.
  • One reason the schools fear Jeffrey Kessler’s lawsuit:  one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys used to be an associate director of enforcement for the NCAA.
  • Believe it or not, ESPN preseason rankings have Georgia’s secondary as seventh best in the conference.
  • Gene Chizik predicts a 10-2 season for Auburn, with losses to South Carolina and Alabama.
  • Vanderbilt checks in at #74 in Paul Myerberg’s preseason roundup.
  • College coaches try to figure out the best way to utilize the new rules on summer supervision.  (Brian Kelly knows what to do, but if he told you, then he’d have to kill you.)
  • We’re guessing that many people would agree that college president or medical school dean is slightly more beneficial to humanity than being a football coach.”  Depends whom you ask, I suspect.
  • Bill Connelly looks at this year’s Clemson Tigers team and comes away impressed, particularly with that defensive line.

Wednesday morning buffet

Trying to provide all the nourishment you need this morning…

  • Meet your dumbass of the day.
  • Northwestern’s AD is honest about it“There are some real positive residuals that have occurred from the conversation about unionization.”
  • On the other hand, it sounds like Kansas State hasn’t gotten the message yet.
  • You gotta love amateurism.
  • Here’s another missing kid from Georgia’s program.
  • Where does South Carolina go with the end of the crazy run of in state talent?  Spurrier’s got that program going nicely, so it’s probably not as big a deal as it might have been once.
  • Pat Dooley ranks the SEC schedules.  Georgia gets dinged for not playing Alabama or LSU, but no mention of same for the other two schools in the East with similar scheduling.
  • Dear Mr. Emmert…
  • For all that talk about power conference autonomy, it sure doesn’t seem like Division I is anywhere near ready to grant it.  The Big Ten is getting antsy about that.
  • The NCAA currently has no Division I major violations cases on its public database for the longest period without a completed major case since 1998.  No doubt that’s because every school in America has suddenly cleaned up its act.

Here’s something that’ll put “I saw it on the Internet, so it must be true” to the test.

The surprise isn’t that Stephen Garcia is predicting that South Carolina will win the SEC East this season.  It’s that there’s a web site out there that describes Stephen Garcia as an “expert”.

More than one way to skin that cat

ESPN purports to survey the entire SEC landscape about its starting quarterback prospects, looks at all the programs replacing starters at the position, sees plenty of uncertainty and concludes thusly:

The only place in the SEC that doesn’t have to be patient in the matter is South Carolina. Coach Steve Spurrier named Dylan Thompson the starter well before spring practice ever began.

Ahem.

The starting job is now essentially Mason’s. The coaches give lip service to the idea that someone could push Mason for the job, but that’s mostly to keep Mason, a fifth-year senior, on his toes.

“Hutson’s obviously ahead of everybody,” head coach Mark Richt said. “But we don’t want any position to think, ‘There’s no chance anyone can take my job’ or take playing time or whatever. So we’re telling everybody to compete for the starting job. We’re not saying, ‘Hey try to compete for the No. 2 job.’

“I’m not trying to cause a controversy at all, because Hutson is clearly in the lead. But it’s gonna be his job to keep it that way, and it’s gonna be the other guy’s job to try to close the gap.”

The only difference between Richt’s and Spurrier’s approaches is how they threaten their starters’ hold on the position.  Richt’s just trying to goose his guy a little to keep him sharp.  Spurrier uses the unspoken threat of being Steve Spurrier, in-game changer of quarterbacks, to do the same.  Either way, does anyone doubt right now who the starting quarterbacks for the Georgia-South Carolina game will be?

Dig in, peeps.

  • From his new role as H-Back, Quayvon Hicks vows that this year will be different.  “I fell off and it won’t happen again,” the junior said. “I’m going to do what I’ve got to do to make sure I’m on the field all season this coming fall.”  I’ll leave it to you to ask the obvious follow-up question.
  • Football Study Hall looks at how sack rates affect point production.
  • Barrett Sallee argues that SEC teams have a track record of thriving with inexperienced quarterbacks.
  • Division III is struggling financially, but is is likely opposed to the easiest way to cut costs, limiting the number of teams in the NCAA championships.  Typical.
  • Man, it hurts a little reading this.  What could have been.
  • The NCAA is looking at adding parties other than college presidents and giving them voting rights to its Board of Directors, while reserving an option go into a president-only executive session when desired.  Accountability without effect – it’s the NCAA way!
  • Another Mark Richt has lost control incident.  You think he’ll make a crack about it?
  • Dr Pepper spends the money to have its name plastered on the CFP championship trophy.

Thursday morning buffet

If you’re facing the same weather conditions I am, it’s not like you’ve got anything better to do right now than to slip into the buffet line.

  • Sorry, Missouri, but you just got the KC Joyner kiss of death.
  • Stewart Mandel throws in the towel on oversigning.
  • Clowney says he might have stayed in Columbia for his senior year if he were paid enough to support his family.  Now he tells ‘em.
  • The NCAA’s Division I Board of Directors hopes to have a new management structure in place by August.
  • Here’s a coach who’s on his eighth job in eight years.
  • It turns out that among all the Vols who were arrested at that wild party last weekend, a man who identified himself as an assistant strength coach for Tennessee’s football team was handcuffed and put in the back of a squad car when he tried to intervene.
  • “An online survey by a group of Canadian researchers suggests that Internet trolls are more likely than others to show signs of sadism, psychopathy and “Machiavellianism”: a disregard for morality and tendency to manipulate or exploit others.”
  • The NLRB held its first hearing yesterday on the Northwestern players’ move to be certified as a union.
