What looks good to you this morning?
- Herbstreit really goes out on a limb with a Tennessee prediction: “I will make a prediction right now that 2009 will be a tough year for [Lane Kiffin] to get welcomed into the conference.” ‘Ya think? Insight like that is why Herbie gets paid the big bucks.
- You want more proof that Knoxville brings out teh stoopid? How about this keen observation by John Adams concerning the fact that UT’s lost eleven kids off the roster since Junior rode into town: “Mainstream Vol Nation shouldn’t be alarmed. In fact, it would have more cause for concern if the Vols hadn’t lost players.” Yeah, that’s it – up is down, black is white, dog is cat. It’s all good. By the way, John, there are those who would argue that “Mainstream Vol Nation” is an oxymoron.
- This is a nice piece on Mark Richt’s attention to the non-football issues that go along with being a head coach these days.
- After reading this post-spring practice summary on Oklahoma State and its own problems on the defensive line, I’m taking the under on total sacks in Georgia’s opener.
- Ray Keller gets shot down on his attempt to revive his lawsuit against the NCAA. For some reason, this stuff is beginning to remind me of the Japanese soldiers they found twenty years after the end of WWII who thought the war was still going on.
- The Quad Countdown on #112 Iowa State is more interesting in its in passing comments about Gene Chizik than anything else.
- Add Tulsa’s Todd Graham to the list of BCS whiners.
- While we’re on the subject of the BCS, this editorial starts out all guns blazing on government action… and then kinda runs out of ammo when it gets to Utah AG Mark Shurtleff.
- Oops – add one more dumb observation about Tennessee to the list. “… the defense has nowhere to go but up.” I guess technically that would be true if only four schools played defense last year.
