A little of this, a little of that…
- The SEC is still reviewing and tweaking its media policy.
- In the conference’s defense, you can get a taste of some of what it’s struggling over in this story about two dudes with a blog being given ACC media credentials and causing problems for the school they’re fans of.
- There’s no new ground broken, but here’s a nice Joe Cox story.
- Joe may work out, but for now he takes a back seat to Florida’s John Brantley, “who many believe is the third best quarterback in the SEC right now”. I hereby dub Brantley the Greatest Backup Quarterback Of Our Era (GBQOOE™).
- Your morning snark: the good news is that the Dawgs have returned to their old ways of fundamental tackling work in preseason practice. The bad news is that Reshad Jones has been out for the last three weeks.
- The Pac-10 has introduced a rule for the NCAA to vote on that would end the practice of schools housing football teams in hotel rooms the night before home games, ostensibly because it would “help integrate athletes more fully with the student body”. Riiiight. The real reason – it would save the average school about $40K in expense each year.
- The screwiest Georgia prediction I’ve seen in print yet – Georgia won’t live up to the hype (what hype?) because of its schedule, and it’ll finish 7-5 but still “deserve to stay in the rankings”. Oy.
- After reading (and puzzling over) this Tommy Tuberville comment, I’m beginning to comprehend why Auburn’s offense went in the toilet last season.
“You try to build an offense away from the defense,” he said. “When everybody was running the ball, everybody was big and physical. Then everybody started spreading it out and … you’ve got defensive backs who are linebackers. The option will start coming back.”
