Tuesday morning buffet line

A few random, yet choice, nuggets for your reading enjoyment this morning:

  • In case you’ve been jonesing for them, Vegas odds on the bowl games are out.  Georgia is an 8.5 point favorite in Orlando.
  • This is ballsy:  ask UCLA to arrange a stopover on your recruiting flight so that you can meet with Notre Dame on another school’s dime. (h/t The Wiz of Odds)
  • So the SEC media names Julio Jones SEC freshman of the year, but puts A. J. Green on the first team SEC squad ahead of Jones.  Way to split the baby there, guys.  By the way, for another take on the media choices – one that’s sure to piss you off thoroughly if you’re a Georgia fan – check out this post.
  • I know this is nothing more than a formality, but please, God.
  • I wondered if something was bothering Brannan Southerland after he came back this season from injury.  Evidently, there is.
  • It looks like the Zooker is losing his primo recruiter.  There goes the DC pipeline.
  • Word.
  • Christmas dinner at the Grohs is likely to be a trifle awkward this year.
  • Hey, if you can’t have a fair playoff because of computers, the next best solution is to have a playoff of the computers.

    There is someone on the fanblogs posting as “Ramblin’ Gator” with an icon of a yellow jacket.

    That pisses me off more than anything.

    Reshad Jones 2nd team? really?


    US Ranked 4th

    After determining the Big-12 championship game participants the BCS computers were put to work on other major contests and today the BCS declared Germany to be the winner of World War II.

    “Germany put together an incredible number of victories beginning with the annexation of Austria and the Sudetenland and continuing on into conference play with defeats of Poland, France, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. Their only losses came against the US and Russia; however considering their entire body of work–including an incredibly tough Strength of Schedule–our computers deemed them worthy of the #1 ranking.”

    Questioned about the #4 ranking of the United States the BCS commissioner stated “The US only had two major victories–Japan and Germany. The computer models, unlike humans, aren’t influenced by head-to-head contests–they consider each contest to be only a single, equally-weighted event.”

    German Chancellor Adolph Hiter said “Yes, we lost to the US; but we defeated #2 ranked France in only 6 weeks.” Herr Hitler has been criticized for seeking dramatic victories to earn ‘style points’ to enhance Germany’s rankings. Hitler protested “Our contest with Poland was in doubt until the final day and the conditions in Norway were incredibly challenging and demanded the application of additional forces.”

    The French ranking has also come under scrutiny. The BCS commented ” France had a single loss against Germany and following a preseason #1 ranking they only fell to #2.”

    Japan was ranked #3 with victories including Manchuria, Borneo and the Philippines.


  4. Muck, are you planning on posting that every day? 😉


  5. All I want for Christmas is a Patrick Nix led Auburn Tigers. That’d be the best gift ever.

    Like it or not Senator, The last six years of the BCS, it’s only given us one championship game without argument going in.

    It’s becoming more and more evident that 2005 is the exception and not the rule.
