Radio talk show host, blogger and general Republican toady Hugh Hewitt suggests the 2008 college football season will be the mother of all “end of an era” seasons:
HEWITT: By the way, I — I’m still trying to find two tickets to the Ohio State-USC game. And none of the USC people will give up their tickets to me. I’d pay fair price.

There’s all kinds of stuff to peek at on the ‘Net this morning:
- A couple of more looks at what the Comcast-Big Ten Network deal means: War is hell and It’s gonna cost you, SEC fans.

- Dude, it’s time to get out of your mom’s basement.
The preseason legend builds.
There was no hesitation from linebacker Dannell Ellerbe when the question was posed to him.
Which Georgia player has opened his eyes in summer workouts?
“A.J. Green,” Ellerbe said. “He looks real good.”
The freshman receiver from Summerville, S.C., is the most heralded member of Georgia’s incoming recruiting class. Ellerbe can tell why from seeing him in seven-on-seven drills. He says the 6-foot-4 Green runs with long strides in a style that reminds him of a Randy Moss.
