Opening day tidbits

Just a sprinkle for you this morning – focus on the games tonight.

  • David Ching drops the bomb on the Auburn faithful on his career move back to Athens.  I know how they feel.
  • Mark Schlabach is bullish on the Dawg D“Quarterback Matthew Stafford and tailback Knowshon Moreno are Heisman Trophy candidates and garner most of the attention, but Georgia’s defense — the fastest it has ever put on the field — will lead it to an SEC championship.”
  • I’m beginning to question Urban Meyer’s ability to see the future.  The Orlando Sentinel’s Jeremy Fowler is reporting that Percy Harvin may wind up missing the Tennessee game.  That’s serious.  And it’s interesting that there seems to be some tension building between the head coach and momma over Harvin’s return.  This one bears watching.
  • Discretion is the better part of valor:  Kade Weston won’t play against Georgia Southern.
  • The AJ-C has a list of places in Atlanta where you can go see Weston’s teammates play on Saturday.
  • And Jody’s back with his always excellent preview of this week’s game.
  • I dare you.

    We should have a good defense but if we do not get to the other team’s quarterback like the first half of last year, we will have a disappointing year. Tennessee still gives me nightmares.

    without getting into too much detail, I have a family member who played D1 basketball at a major school. He had heel surgery after his junior year, probably from the same specialists who did Harvin’s surgery, and he limped his whole senior year.

    I’m not an orthopedic surgeon, and I dont even play one on the internet (though I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express in Miami once), but I have been and remain highly skeptical that Harvin is going to be good as new anytime this season. My cousin’s basketball skills were not overly dependant on being able to just blow by people, so he could adapt to the fact that his speed and mobility were limited. I question whether Harvin can really be Harvin if he cant cut and cant run.

    All is well? Consider me a skeptic.
