I’ve got some great stuff for you this morning.
- First, it’s black helicopter time in Gator land. If you want the real lowdown on why Steve Spurrier hates – and I mean hates – the University of Georgia with every fiber of his being, this is teh awesome (h/t UGADawginVA @ Dawg Run Message Board). The Bleacher Report is rapidly becoming one of my favorite cesspools on the ‘Net. The best part about this shocking expose is that even though the author denies it in the comments section, it’s lifted almost word for word in parts from this somewhat crazed post by our old buddy Franz Beard. Take the time to read it. And if someone could tell me about the illustrious college football career of Gene Ellenson (it looks like he played for Georgia one year in the forties), I’d be much obliged.
- Next, Elkon gets cranky, but in a good way, about the spread offense (there, I said it) – more particularly, about how people talk about the spread. I was thinking much the same thing last night watching a replay of last year’s LSU-Kentucky game. Two teams with non-running quarterbacks lined up in the shotgun with a single back and three and four wide receiver sets ain’t the spread, no matter how many times Gary Danielson kept using that word to describe things.
- Coaches Hot Seat Blog thinks RichRod is in for a rough time this year. And that’s not in reference to the lawsuit, either. At least they think he’ll be back in ’09.
- And if you’re a Georgia fan wanting a little taste of what tailgating before an Arizona State game is like, The Wiz has the link for you.
