Sunday morning buffet

The pickin’s are a little slim today, but enjoy.

  • There’s a college football downside to Rick Perry’s suggestion that Texas might secede from the Union.
  • Watching other teams’ spring football games is kinda boring, to be honest, so kudos to cocknfire for his roundup of the SEC’s games yesterday.
  • If you’re interested, here’s another the-NFL-isn’t- friendly-to-shotgun-spread-college-quarterbacks story.
  • At Smart Football, Chris Brown has some thoughts about Rick Neuheisel’s thoughts on the spread offense.
  • And here’s more on how clueless the NCAA is about dealing with technological matters like Facebook (h/t The Wiz of Odds).  Money quote from NCAA spokesperson Erik Christianson, sounding like a real trooper:

    “We don’t see it as a free-speech issue. What we do see it as is a recruiting issue,” he said.

    If Texas secedes, then they could start the TCAA and invite the other Big 12 teams along with SEC teams and start a real National Championship with the best of the best and Congress couldn’t touch us! YES!

    I am not sure I have ever seen more than a few players of other teams spring games except maybe when new coaches come on and we play that team

    South Carolina’s spring game when Spurrier came on board was probably the most I ever watched and that was a quarter

    No real reason to watch

    My favorite thing about all these write-ups on Florida’s Spring Game is how “Brantley led his team to victory.” Well, when you play QB for both teams you’re probably going to lead one of those teams to victory. Am I wrong here?
