Shorter Andrea Adelson: Never mind that Clemson opens in Athens with last season’s offensive superstars gone, because the defense that gave up 545 yards to Georgia at home last year rules!

He’s “a big reason I like Georgia to win the SEC East”.
Anything in particular you like?
“He [Pruitt] has a way of confusing offensive linemen and quarterbacks,” Herbstreit said.
I have to admit that’s an improvement over having a way of confusing your own defensive backs.
If you’ll recall, Mike Bobo made Bruce Feldman’s list of top ten offensive coordinators ready for a head coaching job.
Now comes his list of defensive coordinators, and Jeremy Pruitt pops up at number three. With a bullet.
His stock surged last year after coming over from Alabama and helping FSU get over the top to win the BCS title. The Noles led the nation in scoring D (12.1 ppg) in 2013. If he can remedy what has been an underachieving Bulldog defense and help UGA win an SEC title, his profile will REALLY take off.
By the way, five of the DCs on his list coach in the SEC. And Louisville’s guy didn’t make the list.
Pete Fiutak, you’re kidding, right? Tell me you’re kidding.
– If he can just be a little bit patient, the head coach of your 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide? Lane Kiffin.
The SEC couldn’t get that lucky, could it?
Show of hands, please.
Tim Tebow and Paul Finebaum on one show? Tell me fans won’t watch that.
I can’t help it – every time I read that, I start laughing.
It’s not that you have Alabama’s coordinators ranking several slots higher than Georgia’s, it’s that you actually go there: “Kiffin, for all of his faults, is overqualified to be “just” an offensive coordinator.”
Listing Virginia Tech ninth, with Scot Loeffler running the offense, is just the cherry on top of the sundae.
Easily one of the dumbest lists I’ve seen in a while.
Mike Bobo shows up at number nine on Bruce Feldman’s list of offensive coordinators ready for head coaching gigs.
My second favorite thing about the list is that Kurt Roper shows up three slots ahead of Bobo. I’ll be interested in seeing the conventional wisdom after the season’s over.
The best thing is seeing Bobo on the same list with a MENSA member.
