This, that and the other

Random goodies to check out this AM:

  • The Quad turns its eye to #17 Tennessee.  It’s a surprisingly bland look.  The most interesting thing there is the alumni list, with Cormac McCarthy and Kurt Vonnegut making an appearance.  And you didn’t think Vols could read, did you…
  • As far as I can tell, the Times Free Press is the first to the gate with a post-Sturdivant projection of the SEC East.
  • The Dead Guy takes a look at the math of Rivals SEC unit rankings.
  •’s Andy Staples takes Urban Meyer to task for his “top one percent” comment in the wake of the Ron/Ronnie Wilson reinstatement.  Bonus:  audio of the 911 call during Wilson’s shoot ’em up moment, including gun shot.
  • David Hale gets Ray Gant to reminisce about Reggie “Dog” Ball.  *Sniff*
  • Paul Westerdawg has some fun updating the pre-game scoreboard show.  It occurs to me that Brandon Cox could be his own Georgia highlight reel.
  • This started with a UT preview, and I’ll finish with one over at the great The Joe Cribbs Car Wash.  Check out Jerry’s “our nickname will kick your nickname’s ass” portion of the analysis; it’s hilarious.

    To everyone who reads this blog, your the top 1% of 1% of 1% or whatever. Anyway, how does a college kid go about scoring a AK-47?

    I can’t access the Quad from work, but I’m pretty sure Vonnegut is not a UT Alum. His undergrad was from Cornell and he earned an MA in Anthropology from the University of Chicago.

    Are we considering recipients of honorary degrees alumni now? Sounds like something UT would do.


  3. According to Wikipedia, Vonnegut did in fact attend UT.

    Wow, Reggie Ball and Brandon Cox mentioned in the same post! My two favorite opposing QBs ever…

    Screw Brandon Cox.

    8 picks? That only begins to redeem him for flicking off the student section as he walked off the field in 2005. NTAC.

    Wikipedia does in fact say this. Are we sure that wasn’t inserted by an overzealous UT fan?

    Vonnegut certainly never mentioned it in any of his autobiographical non-fiction.

    Does attending a college make you an alum even if you don’t graduate?

    If so, I know many a new UGA Alumni member.
