Saturday morning snacks

Here are a few tasty items to get you started on a cold morning:

  • Here’s a handy timeline of political grandstanding/stupidity as it pertains to the BCS.  My favorite has to be the state pol who introduced a bill to keep all teams from Texas out of the BCS – the year the Longhorns won the MNC.  Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face…
  • Lance Thompson’s decision:  money or a change of assholes?  You decide.
  • First, it was bringing back Ed Orgeron.  Now, John L. Smith.  The coaching characters quotient in the SEC has certainly jumped up this offseason.  As a blogger, this is nothing but good news, of course.
  • For all the talk we’ve heard about redshirts in the wake of Moreno’s early departure, there are still valid reasons to redshirt a football player.
  • Why do I have the feeling that if Obama had come out in favor of the BCS, The Weekly Standard would have published a piece on the virtues of a playoff?  Wankers.
