I bet if you posed this choice to Mandel’s 100 friends from Montana…
Georgia ranks dead last nationally — 119th — in penalties assessed. Vandy ranks 117th in total offense. Time to find out which is a bigger hindrance: Penalties, or utter inability to move the ball.
… they’d all agree he’s a moron for even bringing it up in the first place.
Either that, or else it’s an incredibly snarky way of taking a dig at the crack journalists at the AJ-C. If that’s the case, I didn’t know Mandel had it in him to do that.

Getting you started before you hit the road, or fire up the telly:
- Chris Low documents the surprising fall of the LSU defense this year. It’s been overshadowed by the quarterback situation, but that’s a pretty staggering drop.
- I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a story like this one before. At least Ferentz didn’t have to call the parents about the suspension. (h/t The Wizard of Odds)
- Jerry Hinnen of Joe Cribbs Car Wash fame heads over to SEC blog Team Speed Kills to give us a midseason look at the SEC’s quarterbacking situation. Let’s just say as a group, they’re a pretty underwhelming bunch to date.
- Back to Chris Low, who’s also got a blog entry up about how Mark Richt is coping with his ridiculously young offensive line, particularly Ben Jones, whom Richt gushes about.

When it comes to the postseason, the University of Tennessee football team is in danger of becoming the functional equivalent of the homeless guy you see on the side of the road with the “Will Work for Food” sign.
