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)

    That BCS article is the stupidest f’kn thing I have read half of before clicking off in disgust in a long time.

    Seems like a lot of coaches have these “must be among the three highest paid coaches in the [conference/country]”… I’ve always wondered what would happen if more than 3 coaches had those clauses… Or worse, if the Les Miles clause wound up in anyone else’s contract…

    Maybe Lebron didn’t perform well in that game because Tebow’s awesomeness outshined the King’s.

    On the Lame item … Can you see Damon Evans saying this about CMR? … “He’s not the guy he’s portrayed to be in the press.”
