It took me a while to find this, but you’ll be glad I did. It’s a link to the Zooker singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” this past June.
You might get distracted from noticing because of his Godawful singing, but, yes, he’s using a crib sheet to sing the words.
Remember this video the next time someone tells you Jeremy Foley is a genius.
Forty four seconds of your life you’re never gonna get back.

David Ching reports that John Knox has been certified for admission by the NCAA Clearinghouse, which in turn means that the entire class of 2007 recruits has been admitted to school. I have no idea when that last occurred at Georgia, but I hope it’s the start of a trend.
Kudos to everyone who’s a part of this, including the administration, the coaches and, most of all, the kids. As we’ve seen at places like South Carolina and Auburn this year, this is not an easy accomplishment.

All I can figure is that the heat must be doing something to the connection between Jim Delany’s brain and his mouth:
“When the cable company decides to send 70 channels — the food channel, and the dog channel and the bike channel and the jewelry channel — into your home, (we believe) that the Big Ten Network deserves to be in that grouping,” Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said. “Everything else is pretty negotiable.”
We’re scraping dangerously close to self-parody here.
Maybe they can merge the Big Ten Network with the Home Shopping Network to come up with a winner.

Rivals has a piece up on the 50 hottest (or, most expensive, if you prefer) college games this year, according to ticket broker agency TicketCity.com.
The hottest game right now involves two unranked teams, Notre Dame and Penn State. A mere $1,100.00 gets you in to that puppy. (Memo to Clay Travis: nobody scalps tickets to root canals.)
In fact, if you continue to wonder why Notre Dame continues to receive deference on a national level that isn’t justified by its play on the field, look no farther than this list. Notre Dame holds four of the top five slots.
Georgia appears on the list three times: at #9 (vs. Florida), #27 (at Georgia Tech) and #43 (vs. Oklahoma State). Start saving your money.
