2009 Steele is out. Life is good.

I know it’s a sad commentary on my pathetic life, but my face sure had a huge grin on it when I picked up Steele’s 2009 College Football Preview yesterday.

Not the one with this ugly cover, though.

Only one more year of the GPOOE

No, mine has a nice shot of A. J. Green going up and grabbing a pass.

I’ll dribble a few informational tidbits out over the next few days because it’s too much fun not to.  But you should go out and make one of these your own, you know.

Anyway, we’ll start with a trivia question inspired by the cover of my mag.  A. J. Green is the first freshman to lead the SEC in ypg receiving since…?  [Warning:  answer is sorta depressing if you’re a Georgia fan.]

Sunday morning buffet

Wash your hands, grab a plate…

  • If Bernie Machen thinks Urban Meyer should be the SEC’s highest paid head coach, but Les Miles has an escalator clause in his contract making him the highest paid head coach, how’s that gonna work out?
  • Rex Robinson offers some advice for the beleaguered Georgia kicking game.
  • Pretty much any opinion piece on the BCS that cites Joe Barton favorably is going to sound stupid, and this one is no exception.
  • I guess the NCAA is worried about somebody throwing a fantasy football game now.
  • “Though it’s obvious Kiffin has few friends among SEC coaches — he didn’t stay and eat lunch in the meeting room with his fellow coaches and didn’t converse with them in the halls during meeting breaks — he doesn’t seem to care.” No shit, Sherlock.
  • Think the folks at Mississippi State are thrilled about the new SEC TV contracts?  Put it this way:  this year’s distribution from the conference is almost one-third of the school’s total athletic budget.
  • So, the GPOOE™ had front row seats at a NBA playoff game.  What the author fails to account for is that Tebow was probably invited to attend as a back up physician for one of the teams.  You never know when some player might need an emergency circumcision.  What I want to know is what’s the deal with all of those wrist bands?
  • Bobby Johnson meets Steve Martin.  What took ’em so long?


UPDATE: An Orlando Sentinel blog reports that the GPOOE™ was booed when his mug appeared on the Jumbotron. (h/t The Wiz)
