Wednesday morning buffet

Keep the line moving, please.

  • Pete Carroll is “flabbergasted” by Georgia’s G-Day broadcast.  “Now every team in America can break down their film and see what they do,” Carroll said. Dude.  Seriously.  On the other hand, one can only hope that Charlie Strong spends an inordinate amount of time preparing for that trick pass play to Joe Cox.  It should be pointed out that Zen master Dan Hawkins wasn’t impressed “…  I watched a little bit of Georgia’s and I think they lined up in the same defense in the four plays. It was the exact same defense every play.” (h/t Marc Weiszer’s Hedge Clippings)
  • OK, OK, maybe they don’t have any titles or trips to Atlanta or BCS bowl trips to point to, but at least they’ve built this into a tradition in Columbia.
  • Whew!  If you’ve ever wondered how to tie Kevin Bacon, the financial crisis and the BCS together, then this here’s your blog post.  (h/t MGoBlog)
  • Now the Iron Bowl “… will, in all likelihood, have SEC West and possibly national title implications.”?  It’s “regained its luster”?  Gee, I guess years like 2004 really don’t count for much after all.  No wonder those guys on the Plains have an inferiority complex.
  • And you have to love Stephen McGee’s “that which does not kill me makes me stronger” tribute to Dennis Franchione, offensive genius.

“Maybe if I went to Georgia I would have been a first-round draft pick,” McGee said. “OK, great, but I learned things here at A&M that are more valuable than wherever I may be [taken] — the leadership, being tested under fire, the struggles, the heat I took as a quarterback here, backing my coach and teammates.

“Those lessons mean so much more than the hype of a first-round draft pick. I want to be a first-round pick, don’t get me wrong, but I was able to be a part of lessons here at A&M that in the long run I can lean on in the NFL.”

    So now Spurrier can teach South Carolina women to play like shit too.

    Also McGee playing in a complete disaster at A&M and being a lower round draft pick is better how?

    I seem to remember Florida having their spring game on the WWL last year. Didn’t hurt them too bad now did it Petey?

    Dear Dan Hawkins,

    Coaches of 3rd tier Big 12 teams that finished 78th in Total Defense and 86th in Scoring Defense last year are in no position to comment on the defense of a perennial powerhouse. Kindly STFU.

    Forever Yours,

    Dear Dan,

    In my last letter I may have been a bit overzealous in my criticism of your comments. When reading the comments it is possible one might conclude that you were commenting on the nature of spring practices and not the quality of Georgia’s defense. Let’s chalk my response up to all the trash talking coming out of Boise before Georgia destroyed your team in the 2005 season opener. Nonetheless, I think we can both agree that with stats like the those mentioned in our previous correspondence, whether or not teams have your defense on film is the least of your problems.



    P.S. Colorado still sucks.

      P. P. S. Were you impressed when Georgia defenses held your team to 13 points in 2005, and then again in 2006?


  5. I posted a “kind reply” to that trojan board yesterday and Mr. Malcolmson has yet to allow it to post.

    I’m “flabbergasted”.

    And sounds as if Mr. McGee needs a hug. Perhaps he should attend the Visor’s lady camp.

    McGee: “At A & M I learned how to excel at losing. Where else, outside of Starkville or Durham could I have learned those skills at a BSC school?”

    McGee should’ve stopped at “Maybe”

    Everyone who reads McGee’s comments can tell he is just making excuses for making the wrong school pick.
