Sunday morning buffet

Here are a few things to sample:

  • Nick Saban cries foul over some recruiting web sites pushing false information to recruits about the recent sanctions imposed by the NCAA on Alabama’s football program.  Even more interesting is that Saban thinks the ultimate sources for the negative recruiting are coaches at other schools.  I wonder how far he pushes this.
  • Sooner or later, you knew somebody would make a crack like this“Speaking of the Rebels, coach Houston Nutt got away from his office long enough the last few days to film his role in “The Blind Side,” the movie based on the book about former Ole Miss and Briarcrest Christian linemen Michael Oher. Nutt plays himself. Other current and former SEC coaches who also appear in the movie are Alabama’s Nick Saban and former South Carolina coach Lou Holtz. The filming is being done in Atlanta. New Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin wanted to be in the movie, but discovered the script didn’t call for any secondary violations or accidental (wink! wink!) face time for recruits.”
  • Title IX and… competitive cheer.  This is what well meaning government intervention hath wrought.
  • Cory McCartney breaks down the 2009 Notre Dame schedule.  He thinks it’s sorry enough to get the Irish to a BCS game.
  • Bruce Feldman looks at the battle to be the starting quarterback at Southern Cal – without making a single mention of Mitch Mustain.  What a fine career move mama engineered for that kid.

    Reading the linked Saban article, at first I thought he misused an idiomatic expression in the quoted bit, “That should be addressed by somebody and should be brought to bear.” But on second thought, it was probably an editorial error. “Bear” should have been capitalized. He meant that the concerns should be set down at the altar with candles lit and the proper prayers of supplication uttered.

    Mustain and mama, not to mention most of Springdale, are getting their just desserts.

    I would love to sed them a few text messages expressing my pleasure at their accomplishments. Although, I am sure they would point to Matt Cassell as redemption.

    I see it’s time, once again, for the overly optimistic Notre Dame forecasts to start pouring in. McCartney acts as if BC and MSU will be to Notre Dame as The Citadel is to Florida. Not to mention he utters the phrase “this is a winnable game” in regards to USC.

    Notre Dame has become such a perfect fit for the Big 10 its scary
