As you might expect, there’s a little extra union-y seasoning in the chafing dishes this morning.
- Not funny, Hutson: “A noodle arm like me, it’s takes quite a bit of effort for a kid from Florida that can run to get it out there,” Mason said. “I try to crow hop and throw it as far as I can so I don’t underthrow him because I’m going to hear it from (offensive coordinator Mike) Bobo if I underthrow him. “
- Nick Saban’s buying another recruiter.
- Vanderbilt is keeping an eye on unionization.
- Spurrier, on his players coming to him with a list of union demands: “Well, the NFL has a players association. They did that to their coaches and their owners. The owners and coaches said, ‘Yeah, OK, we’ll do that.’ They want to play, they don’t want anything unrealistic.”
- The Sporting News gives its list of the ten greatest Georgia players of all time.
- Going to Congress about unionization? Two can play at that game.
- The Tennessee legislature considered a bill that would have required all of Tennessee’s Division I institutions to pay 1% of revenue from tickets, merchandise, and broadcast licensing to a Student Athletic Trust Fund run by the state. Shockingly, UT opposed the bill.
- Chase Stuart suggests it may be time for us to take QBR more seriously. (It would be easier for me if ESPN didn’t pimp it relentlessly.)
- You’ve got questions? CAPA’s got answers.
- Predictably, Kevin Scarbinsky thinks an Alabama-Auburn playoff rematch would blot out the sun.
Is it too much to hope that Steve Spurrier crashes a Finebaum interview with Nick Saban at SEC Media Days this year?
Spurdog goes there.
“He took it upon himself to go before the rules committee and get it done,” Spurrier said. “They tried to change the rules. But I don’t think they’re gonna get away with it.”
SEC Media Days are gonna be a freakin’ blast.
You gotta give him credit for being fast on his feet.
Although it may just be a reflex at this point.
It suddenly dawned on me what Steve Spurrier’s target date is – not for retirement, but before he’ll consider retirement. He coached at Florida for eleven years. He’s entering his tenth season in Columbia. You do the math, but I think he’s looking forward to eclipsing his longevity mark.
It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s saving up a little dig to throw Foley’s way at the start of the 2016 season.
I guess you could say Swinney sees Spurrier’s “state championship” snark and raises him one.
As snappy comebacks go, that ain’t half bad.
UPDATE: Spurrier being Spurrier.
So who gets the win here? The OBC for the tally, or Dabo for making Spurrier react in the first place?
He may not be able to get you to a BCS game, ‘Cock fans, but at least he knows how to push your biggest button.
You know, I bet he can do those in his sleep.
… the more Steve Spurrier remains a dick.
You know what else the OBC can say? Since he’s been at South Carolina, he’s won as many SEC championships as UT’s coaches have, too.
Gotta give Spurdog credit – there are times when he makes me laugh.
