I confess that I never watched the movie Troy, but since when did cutting one’s hair become a sign of contrition?

There’s a premium article up on the Scout site that I won’t print for obvious reasons. It’s about one of Georgia’s early ’08 commits, Dwayne Allen, who’s a TE from North Carolina.
The article is about his trip to North Carolina to check things out there – no problem with that, all’s fair in love and recruiting – but there’s this little blurb in the middle of the article that once again confirms what an absolute moral sleaze recruiting guru Tom Lemming is.
The gist of it is that Allen attended a Tom Lemming function where he heard some discouraging rumors about Georgia’s recruiting from Lemming himself. According to Allen, Lemming told him that one of Georgia’s ’07 signees, Aron White, was definitely signed as a tight end, which is contrary to what Allen had been led to understand (which was that White was coming in as a split end). Needless to say, this seems to have put a little damper on Mr. Allen’s enthusiasm for the Georgia program, as well as leading him to question somebody’s integrity.
Obviously, unless Lemming got his information about Georgia’s plans for White from the horse’s mouth, it’s absolute BS.
I’m curious where Lemming’s trying to direct this kid.
when you’re not anywhere at all?
Mark your calendar for Oct. 27 because history is going to be made. Look at the above schedules posted on the official sites of Illinois and Vanderbilt and you will see that each team is playing host to Kent State that day.
Start times for the Golden Flashes’ doubleheader in cities 377 miles apart have yet to be announced.
Judging from the rest of the story, there’s a conference commissioner who should be out of a job, if he can’t police his member schools any better than that.
Well, it’s underway, and there’s already one casualty – Seth Watts was a no-show, for “personal reasons“. There seems to be some uncertainty about whether this is permanent or not, but no doubt we’ll hear more about this in the next few days.
For more on what went on yesterday, here’s a few links:

- David Ching looks at the lines in The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer and has some post-practice comments from Coach Richt at his blog;
- David Paschall at The Chattanooga Times Free Press looks at Coach Searels’ first day at practice; and
- The Athens Banner-Herald‘s Mark Weiszer has a few practice notes, as well.
