“I think it’d be great for the University of Georgia if we were able to make it happen.”

For once, I wholeheartedly agree with you, Greg.  Make it so!

It’s only natural.

Puzzling tweet from Friday:

What do you figure makes that so in Kelly’s mind – both teams lost to Alabama in championship games, or revenge for 1981?

Seriously, I’d love a home-and-home, but given ND’s new scheduling deal with the ACC, this doesn’t sound like anything more than cheap talk.

Jim Delany is not a happy man today.

ACC is prepared to announce a grant of media rights agreement has been reached.  That cuts off the financial incentive for another conference to chase a current ACC school.

In other words, if a school decides to leave the ACC for, oh, say, the Big Ten, then its media revenues go to the ACC – and not to the school – for the length of the Grant of Media Rights agreement. Translation: you’re not leaving the league.

Even worse for Delany?  Note the number of schools that are parties to the agreement.  Then consider that the ACC is officially a 14-team conference (for football, anyway).  You do the math on what that means.

Everybody haz a sad.

Just wondering – who should we feel more sorry for this morning, Manti “Lennay Kekua affected my performance in the BCS National Championship Game against Alabama” Te’o or Lane “my last season made Georgia’s 2008 season seem fulfilling by comparison” Kiffin?
